I was looking around the Stampin Pretty blog (www.stampinpretty.com) and I came across a tutorial on how to make a Pizza Box for 3 x 3 cards. I sat down and made these two set over the weekend. The first one is made with the Stampin’ Up1 Retired Punch Bunch Clear Mount Set. I like the color combination because I think that anything that is black with cream or white tends to have a very elegant look about it. The second set is Holiday theme. I like the red and kraft paper together, I think it gives it a very homey feel. I use an EK Tools Postage Stamp Edger and some old Seasons Greetings stamp that I have had for ages. I also made the envelopes! I’m really happy with the way the projects came out and I can’t wait to make some more. Thanks for the tutorial Mary!
Today is my mom’s birthday. She is the best mom anyone could ever ask for. I know a lot of people say that about their moms but she really is. I wanted to make her a really special card and I was looking around on the Stampin’ Pretty (http://www.stampinpretty.com/) blog yesterday and I came across a link to Mikki’s Creative Corner (http://mikkiscreativecorner.blogspot.com/) and a tutorial for a Tri Shutter Card. This is one of the coolest cards I have seen in a long time. I love the way it looks and the instructions were nice and easy to follow. I made mine with White Card Stock and a Deep Purple. I used some printed paper that I had (waiting for my DSP from Stampin’ Up!, think how much better it will look when I get that!) and some EK Tools Punches that I have. The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Retired Afterthoughts Set. I’m so happy with the way it come out, I hope mom likes it!
