Today is my monthly card making day with my Senior Living friends at Nelson Gables. It has been over 5 years since I started stamping with them and it is a bright spot in my month.
One of the new residence is a former card class member, it is so much fun to stamp again with her. When I was a nurse, geriatric nursing was my favorite and this is like having the best of both worlds, my older friends and stamping!
Here are the two hand stamped cards we will be making today.
This card is easy but has a little WOW factor we are using the Birthday Blooms stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog. While I love the fonts used in the sentiments from this set, I choose to use the frame and sentiment from Rose Garden stamp set also in the Occasions Catalog.
Tom (my hubby) comes along on the days I need a Big Shot operator. Most guys love the Big Shot after all it's another tool!
Notice the fine Metallic Thread looped behind the sentiment, this thread is the perfect little filler and comes in both gold and silver. To finish it off I just added a black Candy Dot below the "d".
Here is the other card we are making. The cards need to be easy enough so they can stamp most of it themselves and yet create a bit of a Wow. I usually end up stamping the sentiment as they say they can't get them straight enough. I do tell them that I will stamp it but there are no guarantees LOL.
I love hearing from you so please feel free to comment, ask questions or share your thoughts. Comment Here
