Bunny1kenobi, making the affirmation cards for the women in your church is such a wonderfully loving thing for you to have done. I hope you also made one for yourself. 1 - because you deserve it. 2 - because everyone can use encouragement. 3 - to divert suspicion in case the women in your church are mystery lovers like I am and try to identify the creator of their cards.
Tattooedcrafter received the Happy Mail I sent her, so I can post some of the things I sent her now.
I bought Stephanie Barnard's pop-up card die recently so I made a fall card and 6 kits so Tattoedcrafter could customize them or use the pre-cut supplies I sent. The kits are spring, Halloween, fall, birthday, beach, and floral.
I've wanted to try making rosettes. I used cardstock which may have been just a little too heavy to work well or maybe I just needed slightly longer strips. The creases held well but the center kept trying to pop up. I finally resorted to using E-6000, but even it was having problems holding the center to the back base piece. I gilded the edges with gold Texture Luxe by Faber Castell. It was my first time to use it (one of those clearance sale impulse buys I couldn't resist) but I was pleased with the results. Then I created Santa buttons to cover the open holes where the creases met.
She likes cats and most other animals so I used some of my Ephipany Craft punches and covers to make button pieces to embellish her journals or art pieces.
I've never stamped on cork so I unrolled my cork bulletin board material and stamped sea creatues since she likes octopi.Then I used various dies to cut them out. Never could get them to lie flat though, but I think they will when they're glued to something.
I've been working on grandbaby gifts but no photos yet.
