This last month has been a busy one with my granddaughter, Bailey, getting married and family from Missouri visiting. I did make time to stamp; however, most of my stamp-related time was spent pricing individual items that I’m selling for a friend who has moved to Hawaii and has decided to give up her stamp collection. The card that I’m sharing today was made by Donna Hamblin and features the Lg. Loon Fishing, 1024-P. The “Happy Birthday” is by Stampin’ Up.
I stay busy making cards to sell at the local hardware store and sales have been going so well that I asked a friend to help me make cards. The card I am showing today was made by Carol Mercilll who is the person helping me make cards for the store. In this card, she embossed the Rose Fan, Sm., 0837-N, and the words, “With love” in copper embossing powder. For an accent embellishment, she glued 3 copper branches onto the card. It is a simple easy to make a card but is very elegant in appearance.https://stampsgalore.com/product/rose-fan-sm/
With the Clark Fork High School Graduation coming up on June 9, I’ve been making graduation cards for the local hardware store where I have a card rack displaying my homemade cards. I’ve been using die cuts, rather than stamps for most of these. I’ll share my favorite with you here. The other card using stamp #0838-T that I’m displaying today is a stamp of a fan drawn by my mother. The card was made by Jacque Schremser. She stamped it on vellum and layered it over the designer paper.
I’ve been making Mother’s Day cards for the local hardware store where I have a card rack displaying my homemade cards. The card displayed here today is made with the Hummingbird Stamp number 0252-I drawn by my mother. If you want to order the Hummingbird stamp, contact me through the comment section of any stamp on my site as it is available only by special order. The other stamps used in this card are unidentifiable at this time.
Wow! Time has flown by and I, admittedly, have been neglecting communicating with customers. I’m writing just a brief paragraph here to let you know that I’m still quite involved in rubber stamping. Lately, I’ve been making cards to sell at our local Hardware Store. In that I have quite a supply built up, I intend to get back to being active on my website. With Covid-19 still a threat, I have promised myself I’ll even post more sample cards.
All designs are available in three formats: (1) Mounted, (2) On Cushion & Cling, and (3) Unmounted. As you view the home page, you see three sample cards rotating. If you click on any one of those cards, a description of how the card was made with links to the stamps used to make the card are displayed. Every time you re-visit my site or reload the page, three NEW cards are displayed. If you scroll further down the page to the “VIEW ART” section, there are 12 categories of sample cards that can be visited.
This book was made by book artist, Janice Bryant. Most of the stamps used in her Brownie books are from Stamps Galore.
