Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning!  I have a couple of things to share with you today using Lindsay's Stamps Stuff designs.  Everything is on sale at Lindsay's MyGrafico shop - 30% OFF!!  Wow!!  But before you head over there to shop, let me try to inspire you...

OK - this first card I made is the first of a series of cards that I plan on sharing that I call "1 Postage Stamp, Please."  Meaning, no bumpies that will require an additional 20 cents for hand canceling.  I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch who is also sponsoring Operation Write Home.  The challenge is to use the sketch and create a birthday card.  I plan on sending this one along with several other cards I am creating.  I hope you join in and if you do - please please please remember to not use glitter on your cards that are sent to the soldiers.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Blue (Recollections)
Paper:  Sweet Stitches digi paper (LSS)
Images:  Sweet Treats 2, Coffee Talk (LSS)
Copics:  BG01, BG05, BG09, E53, W-3, Y06, Y11, YR16
Tools:  1 1/2" square punch (CM), scallop edge punch (SU)

This next project I made to go along with the blog candy that I posted that's being given away by Paul Ford.  I had never seen his work before which is odd since he's on the design team for Bugaboo which is one of my favorite digi stamp companies.  Anyway, he has a really fun and easy tutorial posted for a door hanger treat.

So I pulled out my flash drive and printed up some of Lindsay's Halloween images and tried the tutorial.  It was so easy and I had a blast putting it together.  Of course, the kids still haven't found the 100 Grand mini candy bars I have hidden in plain sight, so that made it easy to test this out and get a picture.  I thought this would be nice to make for a few favorite teachers for Halloween.

Card stock:  Lavendar Lace (SU), Black & Gray (Recollections)
Images:  Creepy Crow digital stamp set (LSS)
Paper:  Halloween prints (Michaels)
Tools:  oval punch (SU), Labels 1 (Spellbinders), Circle cutters (CM)
Embellishments:  100 Grand mini candy bar (Nestles)

I hope you enjoyed my projects today.  Head on over to Lindsay's blog to see what she might have in store for you and as always, the team's blog links are in my sidebar.  Thanks for stopping by!

Great projects! Love the treat holder (I love Paul's stuff myself) and that card is perfect for a coffee and dessert lover like me. I have to remember to pair these two images together next time I need a b-day card :)

Laurel said...

Tammy said...

Fantastic projects, Mel! I love your concept for 1-stamp cards -- thanks for the reminder and inspiration that cards "without bumps" can be beautiful, too! That door hanger treat box is so fun -- what a great idea and you did it up so marvelously!

Rhonda said...

Micki said...

Mel, that card is great...... I love how you combined the 2 digis onto one card - immediately thought "why didn't I think of that".... :-)
