Friends and a publication... 77

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, September 6, 2011 @ 11:59 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you all had a safe and fun weekend! Can't believe the first week of September has nearly zipped by. I am quite honored and thrilled to say the least that I had the card shown below published in the August issue of CARDS Magazine! Thank you CARDS for sharing my card :) EVERY month, the magazine is jam packed with loads of inspirational projects~be sure to check it out for yourself ~ click HERE.
Love how the card was shown on a 2 page spread ~ featuring a close up of that beautiful Spellbinders die cut butterfly and doily combo:
Next, I have a CAS card that I made for a sweet friend of mine featuring a few of my favorite papercrafting products:
I pulled out a piece of Pink Paislee Nantucket Crab Cakes patterned paper then stamped the lovely sentiment from JustRite Stampers Friendship Nested Sentiments & Verse set on a piece of PTI Rustic Cream cs, punched a few hearts ~ one cs / one felt ~ using Spellbinders Presto Punch Heart Templates, inked edges of cs heart, layered then stitched into place. I snuck in a scalloped border using a Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilities die template.
Many thanks for visiting :) Hope you have a great day!
Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: JustRite Stampers JB-09220 Friendship Nested Sentiments & Verse
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilities, Grand Calibur, Presto Punch Heart Templates, Presto Punch
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Nantucket Crab Cakes ~ 00521
