KS Monday – May 17th, 2010



Hello and happy Monday again, everyone~

I’ve been MIA since last Wednesday…I hope you are doing OK. I needed to spend a time with my family and some errands for a while but I never stopped stamping ;)

It’s getting so close to the end of school year and I wanted to make some “Thank You” cards to my kids’ teacher. I’ve made only one that was shown above so far :p but I think I make a few more for their teachers.


I made a pocket card and designed with 3 Step School Days and Plaid Plus!. The one of the border designs from Plaid plus! was stamped on horizontally and then I stamped the word & number, “ABC, 123” repeatedly using the lines as a guide. To create the pocket, I used Scor-Tape (1/8” wide) to close the two sides. The tapes are available at KSS store!


This card is entered to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C37) - create a card/project that has some form of pocket.


These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Memento):
(Apple) 1st – lady bug (1 x stamp off), 2nd – lady bug, 3rd – rhubarb stalk (1 x stamp off), 4th – rhubarb stalk

(Leave) 1st – bamboo leaves, 2nd – cottage ivy

(ruler) 1st – desert sand (1 x stamp off), 2nd – desert sand, 3rd – rich cocoa
