Oldie Moldie Monday 3-22-10








Good morning - can't sleep so thought I would post to my blog since the cards are made. It is once again Oldie Moldie Monday - time to dig into your supply of papers, dig out some that has well aged - it is still pretty - but you have fallen under the spell of newer paper and forgotten the beauty of these old collections. This paper I found was 4 sheets of 8 x 8 paper. So I thought I would show them some love - and a little loving later I had made 4 cards.
I am going to make some cards for the soldiers to send home - I need to find the organization that coordinates this - so 3 of these cards are for that - and one for my friend Shari. Found the organization - Operation Write Home. Yeah - http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/ - this is their blog. They have challenges - oh my - and two of my cards fit the challenge.
I bought two sheets of stickers from SRM Stickers to use for my cards – so my goals is to use all the stickers on these two sheets to make cards. I made 3 cards today and only one used a sticker. I love those stamps that have an image and words all together and it is just very simple stamping. This bird stamp from Hero Arts has been a go to stamp for me for adult birthdays this year. It is very versatile.
the paper is from Hot Off the Press.

The first card is based (very loosely) on the sketch at Card Positioning Systems. My stamped image was a little too large to have the stripes come over the top. I dug into the scrap basket for the pink.

Card two: Hero Arts stamp. Cut card base down so that the stamped image could sit above the card base. Twine – May Arts Button from supplies Stamped dots on card base with large background stamp from Hero Arts. The white ink is from Papertrey Ink.

Card Three: Stamp – Inkadinkado Cut stamp with Spellbinders and mounted it on a rectangle. Used my corner rounder on this card. Twine from May Arts. Button, flowers and brads from supplies

Card Four: Sticker – SRM Stickers Blue from scrap basket. Scalloped border – Papertrey Ink
Flours and brad from supplies.

Everyone have a wonderful day and evening and hopefully I can now go and sleep.

That image on your first cards is so cute and I really like the way you used that CPS sketch.

Barb, you're a mad woman with the OMM cards! They are all beautiful. How could you have fallen out of love with that paper?? And you've found another great cause...always giving! Anyone receiving these cards will love them.
