"You know" transparencey cards

This months Design Team challenge was for them to use transparencies in their projects. Here are a couple cards that Cheryl Kelly-Van Domelen made that I wanted to show you today. I have more projects from Cheryl and the other DT members that I will be showcasing the rest of the week.

I really wanted you to see that along with the transparencies she also used our funny saying set "You know..." and the other set that goes along with it "You know... Add on" They really bring a smile to my face and I know they will do the same to your card recipient! You can get a supply list and instructions for these projects in Cheryl's studio gallery at the website. Just click on "Studio's by TSS Stampers" and then scroll down to the gallery "Cheryl KDV's Studio"

Saying reads "You know you are getting older when... you are abducted by aliens
but immediately returned in favor of a living specimen. Happy Birthday!You know you are getting older when... you had to get rid of your dog
He kept trying to drag you to the yard to bury you. Happy Birthday!

Shouldn't show you this!

I really shouldn't show you this card but I am going to because the little birdie is so cute! This card is made with a "stamp to be" from "new to us" artist Blair Lambert. We will have 5 new sets from Blair on the way and 4 new sets from artist Dionne on the way as well. Whoohoo lot's of new rubber! I also hope to have a few new images from Roanne Mathais coming your way as well. But the new sets from Blair and Dionne are already in production and are a sure thing... hopefully in a few weeks we will have them in our hot little hands.

I am thankful for new stamps. :)

Fun from a friend!

I meant to share this with you a long time ago. Isn't it cute? It is a large tag/card made with our "Birdie Gang" and "Oh Happy Day" stamp sets. Holly and her stamping group meet together once a month to share idea's and fellowship. For the last two years they have come in September from the Atlanta area to The Stamping Studio for their get together. I have projects for them to make and of course we eat! They are really a fun gang to have hear and I hope they will come again next year. Holly sent this card as a thank you and I was really thankful to get such a fun card in the mail. The cardboard heart was painted with crackle paint and look at that envelope! It is our cow stamp with a crow sitting on him (non TSS stamp)... that is too cute. Thank "you" Holly!
