Today's Batch of Cards

Hello, today, I created several new cards. Some were added to my online store, and one was created for my July Mingle recipient. I will wait on posting the mingle card until I find out who it is for so that I can warn them not to look, in case they want to be surprised.

3-D Lotus Magnolia Card

Okay..I was on you tube tonight, and saw this entirely too cute tutorial on how to make a 3-d Lotus..So the wheels start turning...OMG...I can use that for the inside of a Magnolia Card..use the proper sentiment and it will be way cute..

So here is my creation..with a sentiment that says..."It's time to Bloom" by Stampin' Up! When you open the card the flower pops open..but lays flat in the envelope...

Perfect for a graduate off to college, or a new bride...maybe even someone wth a new job...

Let me know what you think!!!

How I Store My Magnolia Stamps And Masks

Hello, a few folks recently asked me how I store my magnolia stamps, so I thought I would share.

I currently have 20 stamps varying in size, and I have approx. 14 more on their way to me. I should be able to add those 14 with no problem, however after those, I am probably going to have to find a new method.

I went to walmart and purchased a little $3 photo album. You know the ones you just slide a photo into. On the front pocket of each, I have placed the stamp in, sticky side towards the plastic, and on the back, I placed it's mask. The mask being on the back serves two purposes. One it was a place to keep all my masks, I have one for each stamp. And two, it tells me which stamp is on the other side of the pocket, without me having to take them out each time trying to figure out which is which, Many of mine are similiar silhouettes from the back.

The album does take up a little bit of room, since it does not lie flat, but fits in my scrapbooking bag, I generally take with me. I did try to alternate which side of the pocket the stamps lay, to see if they would lay flatter..didn't really make much of a difference. So here are a few pictures of what it looks like.
