Shelby Stamps

That's right, boys and girls, I am a stamper now. I stamped this card all by myself with absolutely no help from my sister Cyndi. Okay, I did use her paper . . . and her stamps . . . and her gold paint pen . . . and her nailhead stickers . . . but the work is all mine.

And it's a good thing I did it, too, because this card is representative of 18 cards (three sets of six) that had to be made rather quickly. A friend ordered them from Cyndi as Christmas presents, but Cyndi hasn't had any stamping mojo since she got back from her cruise.

Hey, I was just thinking about making those monogram cards.

Yes, but these were ordered for Christmas 2009, so I thought I'd better lend a hand.

Okay, this is a shot of all the cards that are monogrammed with an S. I made S's, B's, and D's.

Shelby, I like how each set of notes is an assortment. I don't think I would have thought of that. Now each recipient can enjoy three different looks.

And what do you think about the new look of the blog?

Holy cow! You've been busy, Shelby.

Well, somebody had to do something. Do you realize we hadn't posted anything since September!

These are the cards in these great clear boxes that I found in the stamp room. Notice how the monogram on the band lines up with the monogram on the card? Pretty good, huh.

Hey, who gave you permission to use those boxes? I was saving them for a special project.

Those boxes are great! They're absolutely necessary when you're giving cards as a gift. Where'd you get them?

I got them from PaperTreyInk. And you can use the link, Shelby, to buy me some more boxes.

Until next time,

Shelby and Cyndi
