Mailable Monday - Make and Take

Hi stampers!  I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I kind of took yesterday least from stamping/blogging.  I did go to church and still had to do the grocery shopping and laundry so it wasn't a complete waste of the day:-) I have a BUSY week at work coming up but I hope to get some stamping done anyway!

Today's card is actually one of the make and takes from Convention.  Sorry it's taken me so long to share it.  I have to say that really, it's one of the only projects I really liked this year.  Not that they weren't pretty but just not my style but I like this one.  And, I'm not a good convention stamper:-)  I only made a few of the projects AT convention and finished this one at home.  It's just too chaotic for me I guess and I'd rather run around and see my friends and look at all the project displays and stuff, ha!  You would think I'd want to STAMP at a stamping convention but no....not so much, lol!

So I made a few changes to this card after seeing a stepped up version from a friend:
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Affection collection
Paper:  Whisper white, early espresso, primrose petals
Ink:  Early espresso, Daffodil delight, more mustard, primrose petals, midnight muse
Accessories:  basic rhinestones, small heart punch, scalloped border punch

The staple is actually colored because....well because it's all I have, ha!  Which is why I don't normally use staples on cards but in this case the color worked!  I also sponged the card base because it just needed something.  I wish I done some peircing as well like to the scalloped trim and to the corners of the main panel.  Oh well.  I think the staple and the small rhinestones would fit through the mail just fine.  I kind of forgot about the rhinestones when I started this post, lol!

Happy stamping!


  1. I like this card! The stamp set isn't my style but I like what was done with it here. You don't mention the scallop border in your supply list. Is it the SU border punch? I assume so! I am looking for one and am having a hard time finding one but SU punches are always great. TFS!

    1. Sorry, yes it's the scalloped border punch. I simply forgot it this morning. I've amended the supplies.


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
