Happy Belated Birthdays are Great!

Sue (the person I sign up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator 19 years ago) and I have celebrated many birthday's together.  Our father's were business partners and so we have know each other our entire lives.  The last few years it seems we end up celebrating each other's birthdays late, but that's okay it is like having another birthday. 

While Sue has continued to stamp she is no longer a demonstrator - but has joined under me a couple of times over the years.  When her wish list is long I remind her she can always join and enjoy the awesome discount.

You can make the window round or square.  Your cutout on the front of the card just needs to be a bit larger than the one you will attach to pop out.

Here you can see how when you open it up there is an accordion inside which makes it stand up nicely to display on a shelf.

Sunday Sketches SS035 - All About Birthdays

Sunday Card Sketches by Patsy Waggoner - Stamps to Die For

Welcome to Sunday Sketches SSO35 by Stamps to Die For. Each Sunday I post a card sketch along with a card I created using the sketch.  Sketches often help get my creativity fired up.

Sunday Sketches SS035 -tile

Let your imagination run wild! 

Sketches are open to interpretation.  You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout, using a square where there is a square, or you can change it to a be a circle, or oval or flower etc. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal.

I stamped the scissors and fussy cut them - isn't that saying just perfect? I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the blades of the scissors and on the brush metal pieces.  Did you notice the fine line along the right side of the elements in the the image? I used Smoky Slate ink to anchor the pot and brushes.
