Beautiful, Ophelia

I have a card to share with you today using the beautiful, Ophelia by The Stampsmith.   She comes in a few different sizes, this is the medium-sized stamp that measures 2.25" x 3.5".

I cropped her a little bit, so here's the full stamp below.

A close up of the beautiful, Ophelia.

Magic Slider Box

I made this box last weekend when I got together with my group of crafty friends. Janice shared this great Slider Box tutorial by Beate Johns with us and we all had fun making each of our boxes.  They all turned out very different from one another. I always find it amazing how different each of our styles are. 

Here's an angel view to show you the dimension of the box.

Here's the box with the note card and the drawer pulled open.  Little chocolates or candies can be put in the drawer to make a cute little gift.

I have another project to share with you using some of the same gorgeous papers...stay tuned.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

I made this card for my Dad for his birthday today. He loves to cycle and definitely lives life to the fullest, so I thought this would be fitting for him. For the main focal image, I used the cyclist from the Mountains Landscape photostamp sheet by The Stampsmith.

Here's a close up of the photostamp of the cyclist trailing up the mountain.

Here's the close up of the sentiment, 'Live.'  I added the extra part of the sentiment, 'life to the fullest.'

Just a reminder about the current 'Bags n' Tags' challenge we have on the go over on The Stampsmith Challenge blog.  I see a few entries so far, but I'd love to see all your gorgeous entries, too!   Each entry, which uses at least one stamp by The Stampsmith, has a chance to win a gift certificate from The Stampsmith Store, valued at $21!   I hope you decide to play along in the fun!

TSC34: Bags n' Tags Challenge

It's time for a new challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge blog.   This month's theme is 'Bags n' Tags'.  A reminder that all projects must include at least one stamp by The Stampsmith, for a chance to win a gift certificate valued at $21 for the Stampsmith Store!

This is the matching card to go with the bag of spa goodies...there's a facecloth sewn into the inside with some of the bubbles punched out so that the facecloth peeks through. 

Here's a close up of the bag front.

The sentiment is from the 'Say it with Flair' stamp sheet by The Stampsmith.

Here's the entire plate, lots of great sentiments to choose from...

I hope you decide to play along with us in the fun!  I look forward to seeing all your creations and good luck in the draw!
