This is a video from a Stampin' Up consultant, Dawn Olchefske. She makes the cutest pansies from the SU Butterfly punch (that is no longer available), so if you have the punch already, then you're all set!.... If not, the 2 pieces could be cut by hand.
Either way, the "reinker spread" technique is great!
Now while she repurposed a plastic cover from a chocolate egg, thus rescuing it from ending up in a landfill, you can get these domes in craft stores as well. And I've even seen them at Flower Soft US (United States) online.... here. ... Or Flower Soft UK (United Kingdom) online.... here.
Beate from SCS has made a video to show how to make a herringbone design on background paper. I'll have to remember to run the base cardstock through the Xyron. Looks like the easiest way to do the adhesive!
Well I haven't posted any pictures of the grandbaby since she was 2 months old.... and she's 8 months old today! I can't believe how time seems to be flying by.
This first one was her first professional sitting at 6 months old, back in February. I get the impression she's going to be a "thinker"!
Here she is toward the end of last month.... such a cutie! I just want to reach out and give her lots of kisses on those adorable chubby cheeks!
The photo speaks for itself as far as when it was taken...
our precious bunny!
And finally, the most recent.... taken just a few days ago with her mommy....
And on one final note for today.... I thought I had already posted this, but looking back, I can't find it.... we found out almost a month ago now, that we'll be grandparents again!!! Our son and his wife are expecting their first in mid-October!
Won't know for awhile yet whether it's a boy or girl,
I like the following quote I found on my daughter's Facebook page:
The next two are on a much lighter note. I found the first one on my son's Facebook page, which really made me laugh, because I remember all the times I had to ask him over and over to get something done, when he was a teenager and on into his early twenties. He's older and wiser now, married.... with their first child on the way!
Laurie from SplitcoastStampers shows us a technique to use to create quick and easy cards that shimmer and shine! You need glitter, dies (or punches), and package tape. Watch this quick video on YouTube:HERE
