Crimped Envelope Card

Here is a little different card that I found on SCS. It is so easy to prepare. I started with a standard envelope, sealed it and cut it off 1 1/4 at the top. Then I decorated the envelope with the colors I wanted. Then you put through your crimper, only the big portion of the envelope. After that is done, you add your embelishments. The supplies used for this was my scallop circle, small & medium punches. RHR classis ink, RHR CS & Kiwi Kiss CS. Along with a couple of buttons. I cut the scallop to resemble a flower. I used Dreams Du Jour stamp set and finished with adding a strip of RHR Taffeta Ribbon. I then took the same colors and sponged the inside card & Stamped the inside. Very simple, quick and easy to do. Check out SCS for the tutorial. Sorry, I need a new camera, mine is blurry!! Everyone, have a great day and thanks for stopping by to visit.

Scallop Envelope Purse

Here is a project that I just did at my last Club. I used the Big Shot and the Scallop Envelope die. I used the Delicate Dots DSP. I cut out two envelopes out with the Big Shot. I cut out a matching piece of CS, 1 x 11 and another 3/4 x 11 of matching DSP. You have to cut the bottom pieces of the envelope's down to 1" just like the strip you cut, I used that as a guide. I assembled the purse from one side to the other with sticky strip tape to make sure it will not pull apart, the bottom being my last to adhere. I used Mini Glue Dots to keep the flaps from coming up or being loose. Then I used the Scallop Circle along with other circle punches and added one of my Mom's "old" buttons as a finishing touch. I also added a little thank you card and nuggets to make it more sweet. I seen this on LW's blog...thank you!

Hi there, it has been a while since I posted something. I am not sure what I am busier with, my full-time job, my family, Stampin Up or my passion of Volleyball. I am moving to the next level, officiating Collegiate Ball....I can't wait. Anyway, I worked on these cards a couple of weeks ago and think they turned out really cute. First I have Whisper White & Basic Black CS. Also DSP from the Patterns Pack in the Hostess Section. I used the silk Flowers & gemstones that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. I then used my small and medium oval punches and stamped "Mr & Mrs" from the All Holidays stamp set. It will be perfect for that next wedding your going to.

Next I Took the Basic Black & Whisper White CS, along with another DSP color in the Patterns Pack from a couple of Catalogs ago. I then used Gemstones and silk flowers again and my sentiment this time is "Happy Birthday" I embossed this on the Basic Black using the Versamark & white embossing powder. I picked up that stamp at Hobby Lobby. I liked how bold it is.
