Pretty Snowman Panel Card

DSCN0053

I think these panel cards are the BOMB!  They are very easy to make too.  Just take a 12 x 5-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock and fold it in half.  Then fold each side in half again. Use the Decorative Label punch on the bottom of each panel by punching out a little less that half - it makes it look like the bottom of a dresser to me. The Confetti Stars Border punch was used on the top of this swap card.  Cut Basic Black layers for each panel and then a layer to stamp on.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!  Sure to get a big WOW!

DSCN6924

Funny little story...Cindy and her husband Jim have been friends of the family for years. We used to go to Devils Lake, North Dakota years ago on a week long fishing trip.  I would always bring along my stamping supplies and make cards while I was enjoying my vacation.  Cindy started helping me and then she got to thinking "I could do this!"  

She started ordering her own stamping supplies and before long found that she loved it!  So in 2007 she bought a starter kit and began placing her own orders at a discount.  She helped me with a couple stamp camps up north.  AND then 3 years ago she got her courage up and and offered her own class once a month!  And it was a huge success!!!!  The stampers in Neillsville absolutely love it!  Cindy retired from the Sheriff's Department at the end of February and now has 3 classes a month!  She's really enjoying retirement now that she gets to do what she LOVES!!!  WAY TO GO CINDY!

Bye Bye Birdies

.
Here's a cute card that I made for my May stamp club attendees - who wouldn't want to get this cutie for their birthday?  I'm gonna miss the Aviary stamp set - yep - it's retiring in just one short week!!!! There's 9 different images in this one!
.
101_0335
.
I used Tempting Turquoise for my base.  I folded it in half and the placed the fold in my paper cutter at 3" and cut the edge off.  Don't miss the Dotted Scallp Ribbon Border Punch layer that I used on the right side of the inside layer - that really added that "little extra" that makes this card pop.
.
I also used the Word Play stamp set on the inside - this has been a staple in my card making. ALSO RETIRING!  I'm gonna miss it!!!
