LIFE takes over and Stamps 548 & 549

LIFE responsibilities have definitely taken over for a bit here.  I was wondering if I remembered HOW to make a card.  I needed twin cards for my darling great nephews first birthday. my neice- Grandma Laurel got to come home from the hospital in time to celebrate their birthdays.  She is paralyzed from the chest down because of a drunk driver.  she has the most wonderful spirit and it has been a pleasure helping her.

It was fun to use these Whipper Snapper stamps for the first time.  I bought them at a rummage for $1.00 a piece last summer.  This is the first I have used them.  I will enter these cards as a single entry into Word Art Wednesday #226 &#227
Using my Spellbinders double sided embossing folder on core-dinations paper i embossed and then sanded coordinating card stock.  Corner punched them for some added fun and then layered in off set pattern.  I learned the sentiment trick from Heidi at the Stamp Shoppe in Weston.  You use tape to cover the white portions of the tags.  sponge and then peel off the tape for a ribbon like look.

  1. Oh my, a bargain! I have several WS stamps and they are like $12 each! Lucky purchase! Your cards, and wee ones, are both as darling as can be :)

  2. Oh, my, what a heart-lurching post, Janeen. You know I smile whenever I see or hear about twins, so it was cool to see your fabulous cards and their photo, but then I was so sad to think about Laurel. God bless her for being an angel, but it still burns my biscuit to think of it. It is wonderful, though, that she is such an inspiration to those around her!! Hugs, Darnell
