Thank You Cards

These are cards I made for this month's stamp camp card swap. I used the Basic Grey Out of Print paper line, Close To My Heart card stock, a random strip of corrigated cardboard, and Micheal's/Studio G thank you stamp and floral paper clip embellishments. The larger close up photo shows the embossing of the stamp pretty well.

Where is the Sock Monkey?

Here is the sock monkey card that I made for my friend's son's 2nd birthday. It matched his gift, which I found at Big Lots--a cute game of Where is the Sock Monkey? I thought they would have fun hiding the little monkey around the house to play hide'n'seek. I printed out the sock monkey image off the internet, then I layered it onto some paper, added google eyes, and buttons. Voila! Simple. Adorable. Done! So fun to be apart of the party today as the official photographer. I got some great shots that I will post later.

June In My Vintage Room Swaps

These are the swaps I finally completed for the June Swaps I hosted in my yahoo group. I have my June Altered Tag, front and back, my Steam Punk Dad LFB, front and back, and three Mermaid ATCs. The tag and LFB images were cut out and collaged from a 1953 magazine called The Saturday Evening Post. The ads and images in it are so retro/vintage and fun to read and look at. I combined several to create the tag and LFB. The mermaids are ladies from a Lisa's Altered Art collage sheet with their legs cut off, and I use pattered paper and metallic gel pens to create their fins. Miniature seashells, key charms, pearls, jewels, and champagne glass glitter (Stampin' Up), complete the pieces.
