Tin of Cards, part one

I started the Tin of Cards kit by making the tabs and one set of Cards.

The tabs were a little tricky as the straps had to line up just right, as you will see in the pictures I wasn’t quite successful on some of them.

The addition of the cardstock was very easy, just line them up at the bottom corner leaving about an eighth of an inch all around.

The first set of Cards was fairly straightforward the only confusing part was wether to adhere the cardstock to the inside back of the cardstock or the inside front. I chose the inside front and that became a little tricky with the glue.

For easier application I would go with the inside back of the cardstock.

I would also like feedback on the style of my photos…slideshow or clickable individual photos?

Thank you in advance and as always keep creating!

Over the next week I will put together the cards and the tin.

I will share with you each of the card designs as well as my thoughts on the project.

So far just looking at the project up close I think it s a great addition to any stampers craft room.

I know that for me, even when I am stamping all the time it seems that when I NEED a card I don’t have one handy.

I also know that when I really need a card I also don’t have time to create one from scratch.

This kit fixes that problem,not only does it have everything you need to create a card quick it has a place to keep cards for those unexpected occasions.

Stay tuned to see the cards made from this kit and the project inspired by this kit.

I Love My Stamps

Normally my stamp showcase is done on Saturday however with my new schedule that will change

My Stamp showcase will now be shown on Sunday

And with that I present this week’s Stamp Showcase

Fabulous Florets Wood mount # 128574 and Clear mount # 123027

Fabulous FloretsThis set comes with six stamps

The stem stamp itself is invaluable to me

I have used this set on many occasions

They not only create a beautiful focal point they make great backgrounds

The solid flower is great for techniques like thumping and graduated color

The two outline stamps are really fun to water color and practice shading with

They are also the perfect size for 3 x 3 cards

Let me know if you would like to see samples from I have made from this set

And don’t forget to order your set today!
