Hi there! I thought I'd pop in with a few end-of-year cards that I made. I haven't been card-making much (so, not blogging much either) but I'm working on making party decorations that I can't wait to show you.
Has the school year ended for your kids? Ours drags on for another 3 weeks and 2 days... we're all counting down. On the plus side, at least I still have plenty of time to get my teacher cards and gifts put together.
My first card was inspired by Cristina's stunner. (click!)
I added a book to the line-up,
and opted for the new "thanks" die instead of the individual letter dies.
My second card had me cutting more than stamping:
I downloaded a pencil-shaped card file from the silhouette store, and cut it out onto one 12x12 sheet of ivory cardstock. All of the colors were sponged on or colored on after the cutting. I find that so much easier than sending all of the different colors of cardstock through the machine. I stamped the lawn fawn sentiments directly onto the pencil.
I hope you like them!
