Hi everyone...My name is Penny Ward (and my little dog Snowy).
As a Guest Designer this month, I would like to thank everyone at Sweet Stamps for the invitation. I have had so much fun playing with your stamps and getting inky.
I have been card making for about three years after retiring from a Fortune 500 company. I was hooked when I saw all the pretty papers and tools. When you get a spare moment, click over for a visit to my blog Penny Ward Ink.
Let's Make a Card
Fall is in the air somewhere (I live in Florida...it is still in the 90's here). I like to make my everyday cards according to the season...do you?
This card is fairly simple to make. With the Leaf Corner stamp, I only inked one edge and stamped the long side of my card panel using Memento inks. I then took a large post it note (LOVE them) and masked off a section of the card about an inch in and stamped along the edge again.
I wrapped Fall colored embroidery thread around the card, then took a long length of the threads and soaked them with Glossy Accents. Let dry.
Tied hardened threads into a bow.With the long "tails", I wrapped them around a pencil to get those sweet curls.
Stamped the Thank You sentiment and also stamped the Leaves three more times on scrap paper, colored and fussy cut them to add as an embellishment to my bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you will return again real soon as the Designers have so much more for you in the following days.
