200 Thank You Cards

So this is what 200 cards look like!
 
Remember that day on Facebook...OK maybe not.
 
So, there was this day I posted a photo of 400 pieces of ribbons and everyone that was there...(maybe 3 people) was "like...OMG" and "YOUR F'N CRAZY" and "WTH is wrong with you".  Ya, something to that effect.  Well, now I can show you what I was making. 
 
Here you have it...200 cards!  OR...
 100 per bin
200 cards scored 
400 pieces of ribbon
400x stamping
600 cut pieces of paper
8 rolls of ATG Tape
AND...
1400 letters and numbers cut and glued, one by one!
 
 You may be telling yourself after reading those STATS, "She's Crazy"! You'd be right!
 
 
  Here are the 400 pieces of Stampin Up Ribbon, Basic Grey Stitch and Misty Blue Scallop.  Or something to that effect?
 
 
I layered the ribbon then taped them on for 5 hours straight.  I had no feeling left in my fingers.
 
 
Here, I bagged each letter and number into it's own bags.  That's 7 bags with 200 cuts in each. 
 
 
Scrappy Moms Stamps just came out with this Many Thanks stamp just in time!  And Many Thanks to SMS for having this AWESOME stamp set!  It was perfect timing:)
 
 
For the bottom portion of the inside of the card I coloured by hand this big stamp from Stampers Anonymous, Booksellers and Publishers.
 
 
Aren't they fabulous together.  I had to hand colour the bottoms stamp since I didn't need the whole thing.  I once had a shiny new Black SU marker:(


All mounted and ready for the letters and numbers!
 
 
My finished card, simply made with a great impact I thought.
 
My husband's company (he works for) is celebrating 10 Years Today!  I made these for the the staff in the Company colours.  They distribute Book and Magazines so you can see how using the Booksellers stamp and this Newsprint SU paper is so fitting.  I kept the card design simple and to the point otherwise I'd still be making them;)
 
So now do you remember that day on Facebook?
 
Oh and just so you know I've added a "PIN IT" button at the top of the post to make it easier for you to "PIN NOW, CRAFT LATER"

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
