This quick and simple card was a project I designed for my last Stampin Bunco event last weekend. It's a 3 by 3 card. Half way thru playing the dice game we stop and make a quick a project. After the project we finish up the game and prizes are awarded to all players. Depending on what they won playing the game determines what they get to choose from the catalog as their prize! I stamped the real red ink full strength on the real red cs. Then without restamping I stamped the envelope. Then stamped the third time on the punched out circle to get the lightest color.

Supplies used for my card:
Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set
The Open Sea Stamp Set
Real Red, Whisper White CS and Ink
Maritime DSP
Neutral Candy Dots
2 1/2 " Circle Punch
Linen Thread

My first Project Life Creation

Today over on the DESIGN TEAM were all featuring projects using Project Life. So, click on over and check the rest of the designers projects out!

This is what I decided to do for my first project life creation a quick card! Project Life products is not just for scrap booking! I am really happy how my very quick card came out.  I used the stamp set Somrthing to Say. The stamp image says happy birthday. I simple stamped the image and used the small oval punch and punched out just the the word birthday. Of, course had to add rhinestones for lots of bling to add the finishing touches to my quick card.

Here is the Everyday Adventure Card Collection. As you can see I chose to use the Happy card. Those Journaling Pens are sold separate. This is how I store them in this box.

Have a great weekend!
