Good evening fellow crafters, or perhaps Good early morning! (It has just turned midnight here!) And it is now OCTOBER! Yet another month come and gone just like that. Absolutely crazy. Spent a few minutes watching my girls reading the other day after they finished their homework. It just breaks my heart to see how fast they are growing up. They know so much about who they are now, what they want, what they don't want...Just have to remember to cherish each and every moment of every single day that passes...
Moving on, I wanted to share with you the card set I made for this week's Make it Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink. I think this is the first time I have ever been able to actually make a project the same day the challenge came out. This week, Nichole shows us how she created her "Repeat + Lift" cards. It is a really fun technique, and there are so many ways we can put this to use! I saw the video real quick this morning before heading out to work and have been thinking of ideas all day about what I wanted to do for my cards. The kids' school has a Fall Carnival every year, and they allow Craft vendors to sell their items there. I am going to have a table, and I need some Teacher gifts, including some cards. So this is my first Teacher Thank you Card set.
I used Neenah White Cardstock for my card bases, and some patterned paper from Recollections Back to School paper pack. I used Papertrey Ink's Wonderful Words: Thank You Stamp Set and matching die, along with the Banner die. I stamped my "Thank You" in Stampin' Up Real Red and Basic Black, and popped up the "Thank You" die-cuts using foam dimensionals because I didn't have any foam tape. This was a challenge because I had to make sure the dimensionals were cut really thin. You can seem them a tiny bit up close, but it doesn't look bad at all. I like the way the set came out and I can't way to try a few more sets like this to include in the Craft Fair.
I have to work early in the morning, only going to get a few hours of sleep now, so I guess I should probably head off to bed! Should be resting anyway, I feel a cold coming on, my throat is killing me and I am already losing my voice! Thanks for stopping by, have a fabulous day!
