More of Winnie the Pooh

 
Here are the last three variations of the wooden pieces I shared with you yesterday.  The customer wanted to make sure I used the same saying on all of them "...if there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever..."

 
Again, I used some retired items, but on the masculine ones I decided to use the Wetlands stamp set.

 
Again, lots of sponging (I actually used the reinker and put it directly on my sponge for the edges of the wood instead of tapping it into my ink pad).

 
Hope you enjoy them (and my customer too does too)!

Winnie the Pooh

 
At a craft show recently, I had a wooden plaque on display that I made and it had a picture of my kids on it so it wasn't for sale obviously, just a sample.  A lady asked me to make up 5 more for her with the same saying, but vary them a little.  I couldn't get the exact wooden piece that I had used on the first one, but really like the ones I did use.

 
Each one is a little different and I have used some retired stamp sets that I still have laying around too...

 
Lots of sponging and thankfully I still had a pack of the retired specialty paper I used in the background for them.

 
I will share the others with you tomorrow!

Addicted to Stamping

 
Last weekend was the semi annual scrapbooking retreat that I go to at our local and awesome Bible Camp.  I always like to make a little something to put on everyone's table and this year tried to tie in with the theme of "What Happens at the Retreat, Stays at the Retreat!" 

 
These French Fry boxes went together much more quickly than I had anticipated which I was grateful for since we had 50 people attending!  I stamped an image from Work of Art on the front of them before putting them together and then added the "Hello my name is..." afterward.  The fast fuse adhesive worked great to keep them together.

 
This is what I put inside them along with a couple Stampin' Up! playing cards for fun.

 
Supplies:
Work of Art
Assorted card stock
Early Espresso, Baked Brown Sugar ink
French Fry die
Fast Fuse adhesive
