Two For Tuesday: Lovely Friends cards

Today is Two For Tuesday, where I share an quick & easy card along with a stepped up 2nd version.

Both cards feature the new Lovely Friends Photopolymer Bundle [145319] (save 10%)!

Create cards with an interactive flair! The die in this bundle makes a pop up wreath when the recipient opens the card. The stamp images compliment the dies with lots of phrases and greetings for the outside of your card.  You'll find yourself reaching for the set often!

Buy these two coordinating products and save 10%.

At first glance - I completely fell in love with the stamp set, Lovely Friends.  and knew I'd be reaching for it a lot when I'm looking for ways to express myself.  But I have to admit, I didn't think I needed a pop-up interactive wreath from the Lovely Laurel Thinlits Dies.  However, I gave it another look and found that most of the dies I do NEED in my collection.  The wreath doesn't have to be a pop up - it makes for great foliage (as shown in the step-up card).  Plus the label shape is a must-have!  Be sure to add it to your shopping cart today so you can start creating lovely cards right away!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Dads & Grads: One Wild Ride (QC & Step-Up!)

Before I get started, here's a little housekeeping...

I've been hearing from several of my readers that you haven't been receiving my Subscription Emails in awhile.  While looking into it, we discovered that they have been removed from the subscription list, but don't recall doing that.  I've contacted my subscription service, Feedblitz and we don't have a clear answer.  

At this point, I recommend doing the following:

  1. Re-subscribe here:  http://www.feedblitz.com/f/?Sub=949853
  2. Add feedblitz@mail.feedblitz.com to your approved sender list (email contact list)

I hope these two suggestions help.  If you continue to have problems, please contact me directly at dostamping@yahoo.com.  I'd be happy to contact Feedblitz to resolve your situation.

Thanks~Dawn O

 


Today I'm sharing a couple of cards using the adventurous stamp set, One Wild Ride.  One is quick & easy and the other is a "step-up" version.

Choosing gifts for motorcyclist enthusiasts is easy: riding pants, goggles, bandanas—done!  But motorcycle-related cards are so much harder to find...not any longer!  The One Wild Ride stamp set is perfect for the hog-riders in your life (or the wanna be hog-rider). You’ll never have to search for the right card again because now you can make it!

  2. Adhere 3/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Brights Designer Series Paper Pack - Pumpkin Pie to card front (as this is already sold out, you could substitute the Pumpkin Pie pattern from the Fiesta Birthday DSP)
  3. Stamp "badge" twice on scraps of Whisper White.  Once with Basic Gray and cut with Best Badge punch.  Again with Pumpkin Pie.  Use scissors to trim out "journey" and cut banner shape on both ends.  Adhere onto gray badge.  Then adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I think Dad will like either card, don't you think?  As I'm looking at these cards, they could even be for someone who's graduating too.
