“…doing our part to make this world a cuter place to live in.”
Welcome back to Stamping Peace, where our card ministries are celebrated! Hope you had a great week-end and hope we all had a little time to make this world a cuter place to live in. : )
Do you ever see a card or project that draws you toward a certain stamp set? This was the card that had me ordering the Sprinkles of Life stamp. Every year Stampin’ Up! has a stamp set that is set apart in the catalog and a certain amount of profits from that set are sent to the Ronald McDonald House. It’s a cause dear to my heart since I had to travel to Baltimore (from Maine) for one of our son Joshua’s surgeries back in 1995, and stay there for four weeks. We looked into staying at the Ronald McDonald House until some friends invited us to stay with them. It’s a great cause and a great service to those of us in need.
I saw this card back in May or June (happylifecrafting.com) when the set first debuted, and have had it in the back of my mind ever since. Finally the time was right to make it and I just love, love, love it…it’s SO cute! Punching out all the little apples from the Tree of Life punch is a little work, but it’s worth it. The bow was made on my fingers and if you go to “Home” at the top of this page you can then scroll down a few posts and see a picture of how to make it. This is the new “Delightful Dijon” cardstock, along with Real Red and Whisper White. The basket, which is also used for the bottom of a cupcake, is stamped on Sahara Sand cardstock and the little bird is punched out of Early Espresso cardstock. The ink is Early Espresso and I colored the stems of the apples with an Early Espresso marker. I cut these banners free hand, but there is a new Triple Banner Punch that will do the job for us!
Hope your day is full of love and light, Dawn
