Special Delivery

Hello everyone!! Wow! I can't believe it it already almost the end of August. My kids started back to school yesterday and my BFF and her family, who were visiting, just left to go home. (boo)  It is just such a busy time. I'm sure that you are busy in your life too and sometimes it takes something special to get you in the mood to get back to that scrap table. Well, I have just the thing to make you want to carve out a little scrappy time. The new Winter Strawberry Kisses stamp collection arrives next week!! And they really got me itching to scrap so I bet they will do it for you too.


Isn't it cute!?  (the image I mean) There are 12 new ones and I almost couldn't decide which image to choose first! lol But of course I did. I picked Special Delivery as the image I would make a sneak peak out of for you to drool over. LOL

Since I am so super busy, I decided to go to my old stand by, an easel card. I love to make easel cards and I've mentioned it to you before so I won't go on and on about it now. The quickest explanation is that they just go together so quickly for me. Here's a link to a tutorial on how to make one if you don't already know how.


I stamped and colored my image and the sentiment with my Spectrum Noir markers. Then I pulled out some Christmas paper from my stash. I'm a total Christmas freak so I have a ton of it!! LOL I layered my patterned papers and used some bling and knotted red ribbon from my stash. I die cut the image and sentiment and then die cut some patterned paper to mat them both. I layered the image and it's mat on the front of the card and I used double sided adhesive square to pop up the sentiment on the inside of the card. This gives dimension and hold the top in place when you have it open in the easel position.


It went together quickly and I think it turned out sweet. I know that next week you are going to be rushing to the Crafter's Companion store to get some of these stamps for your very own!

Don't forget you only have 3 more days to enter the Friendship challenge on the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog and maybe win the $30 gift card to the Crafter's Companion online store!! Get scrapping because we want to see those projects!!! 

Today the back to school adventure went a little smoother than yesterday.  Fingers crossed it keeps being smoother...lol 

Don't miss out on my Birthday Giveaway going on right now!!!

    Love the papers you used!!

  2. Super cute! I'm looking forward to seeing the new stamps! Great papers on this too!

    Yippee! back to school... what will you do with ALL your free time?? LOL

  3. OMG stacy! I take a little break from my usual blogging habits and come back to find your giveaway...which is awesome by the way!
    and this card is so cute! I love the sentiment. Your coloring is so pretty! Easel cards are my favorite too. I think it's because they look so fancy but they really are not that hard to make, and because you can display them instead of putting them away :)

  4. OMGoodness! This is adorable!!!!!! Is that the card you are sending me soon???!!! I say with my tongue hanging out and my tail wagging. ha ha ha ha ha rofl
