Brewed for You is an awesome stamp set with many uses. Today I chose to make a birthday card for my son. I still think of him as my baby, but at 35 I decided to leave behind one of Stampin’ Up!’s cutsey images for a more mature one. I think he’ll be quite surprised as I always do cutsey for him (and at 61 I’m still getting stuffed animals from him). His birthday isn’t until the end of December, but with the rush of the holidays, I thought I should make it now.
As you can see, I stamped the envelope to coordinate with the card. Using the same mug on my envelope, I created a front piece using those same stamps right onto the green background. Using one of masks, I blended a design onto the right side of the card. I really love this stamp set for the men in my life.
Today is our last day of Al’s and my vacation. Al helped me reorganize my stamp room. I didn’t quite expect to flip the heavy shelving and desk around, but once it was done I realized how much better my room is to keep organized. I couldn’t be any happier with how things are sitting on my shelves. It only took 8 years to get there–LOL.
Please share how you keep your stamp area neat and tidy, or even organized. I have a habit of dropping my knitting projects on my floor that I barely have room to walk around.
I have lots of card-making classes, as well as a technique class, so if you’re in my area (Sarnia), then give me a shout. Christmas cards is the theme for November.
Cheers, and thanks for stopping by!
