When the Power Goes Out.

Edit to move this to the top of my entry instead of having it at the bottom since I was so long winded. :p

Click here for a sneak peek of the new SU "In Color" family - Pink Poruette, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Riding Hood Red! It also looks like there is a new cute little Owl stamp set in the new Catalog. Is it sad that I'm looking forward to getting an early preview to the July-Dec. Catalog (I should get an early copy mid-June if I'm reading other Demo's sites correctly!) almost more then Christmas?


Yesterday between 9am and 9.30am the power flickered in and out about 4xs before going off for good. It remained off until 5.30pm, making for a rather dull day, and a bit frustrating since it appeared (after a walk around the neighbourhood) that it was only our street that was out. Minus that one neighbour who had a generator in his backyard and was blaring his music.

Anywho, after I had crochet'd a bit, then cleaned up the basement (O and his dad drywalled it this past week so it was a huge mess!) I decided to work on some cards.

This first card is for a friend. I did one for her already, but I was invited to her 'friend' shower (she had a family one yesterday), so I made another one and will be giving her the baby blanket I did not have finished when we saw them 2 weeks ago. I'm not sure how keen I am on this card. I'm still debating it actually. I bought this cute Giraffe stamp today while I was out so I might use that instead and make a whole new card. I like the "It's Beautiful" wheel along the bottom but I think it's the colours I'm not so keen on.

This is for no one in particular, I just wanted a chance to try out my Pretty Petals background stamp I got a week ago. Love this stamp, I definitely know why now some ppl use brayers, it's HUGE. I had no idea they were this big, using a brayer would help ink it up so much faster. It just barely fits on my stamp n scrub pad to clean it.

This was a card I found on SCS. The tutorial for it can be found here - Flap Card. I might make this my card for the new card exchange I'm in. I'll pick a different colour combination though, and I'd like to use a paper piercer instead of a gel pen. A Mat Pack is on my wish list, but I'm waiting until I can get my SU markers first before I place another order. Hopefully in a couple of weeks. I think I'd also add some sort of sentiment to it since I'll most likely change the stamped image. I guess I should have said "I think I'm going to make a flap card for the card exchange", not "I'm going to make this card for the exchange". heh

Other: Coluzzle, Ribbon, ticket corner punch, scallop punch, and I once again traced my circles bc all the circle punches I ordered from SU in my order (1 1/4", 1 1/2 and 1 3/8" are all back ordered!!)

I also finished up the gift card holder I had started a while ago. I cased this card paper for paper, stamp for stamp from the Tutorial on SCS, which can be found here.

It' needs something more, a bit of ribbon, a brad or something but I can't put my finger on it yet. Maybe a brad? In the Tut she used a brad + ribbon.
