Cherish These Postcards


We’ll be delving into mail art at this month’s Make-It/Take-It at Stampin’ From the Heart, Friday, Nov. 13, fr100_0381om 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. We’ll turn a dictionary page into a mini work of art and add some embellishments! At the end you’ll have a lovely postcard to send  to someone special or just put up on the bulletin board. Once I got started, I just couldn’t stop, so there’s 6 different designs. Each postcard has the word “cherish” on it somewhere. And the best part is that I’ll be bringing the entire collection of Distress inks for you to color-coordinate as desired. Feel free to bring your own images if you want to personalize your cards (Finished card is 3 3/4 by 5 inches).

Butterfly ATC “Tagnets”



I hope you can join us Thursday, Nov. 19 for the last ATC Night of 2009. We’ll be making colorful Butterfly ATC “Tagnets,” a great idea for a special giftie or just to put up on the fridge. They are guaranteed to make you smile. We’ll all have something to be thankful for, because we’re bringing out the Tattered Angels sprays 🙂 And these are not just ordinary Artist Trading Cards, there’s a surprise involved (the tagnet part). So we’ll also be painting. Yes, it might be a good idea to bring rubber gloves. I’ll supply the rest, along with a demo. As always, you are welcome to bring 7-10 ATCs of your own design to trade with the other participants. See you there! What’s an ATC, you ask? Check out the page on this blog for details.
