Winds of Grace

This is my sister Donna's other swap for regionals and the detail speaks for itself. She used Blue Bayou, Rose Red, River Rock and Not Quite Navy Cardstock. She embossed the sailboat and added a gold brad, gold cording and a strip of rose red cardstock for the flag. She used the ticket corner punch, horizontal slot punch and River Rock Stitched Ribbon.

Bundle of Joy

This is one swap for regionals this year by my Super Stamping Sister Donna (she really is my sister!). She has a wonderful eye for detail which usually results in very time consuming but beautiful results. Sue used the Stampin Up! Bundle of Joy stamp set with the soft sky designer series paper and accented with soft sky, barely banana, and white ribbon She also used chocolate chip cardstock and satin ribbon (which she embossed with "adorable"). If you look closely you will notice that she also frayed the wide chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon for the hair on his neck and tail. How cute is that?

Apple Cider Tin

This tin was created to hold hand stamped cards that my Sunday School Class made to send out. I used the Apple Cider Paper and the True Friend Stamp Set from the Stampin Up! Holiday Mini. I embelleshed with the Pretties Kit, Various Ribbon and the Jumbo Eyelets (using the Crop-A-Dile of course). The scallops were done with Spellbinders Dies. In Joy!

Peanut Butter

Yep, it's peanut butter! My kids and I stamped this jar of peanut butter for a racer who has been known to eat it with a spoon. It's become a tradition for us to bring him peanut butter and I thought I would share our hand stamped gift with you. In Joy!
