Ferris Wheel

Ferris Wheel

The Ferris Wheel image on this stamp has to be a replica of the original Ferris Wheel from the St. Louis 1904 World’s Fair.  It just has to be.   Not that it was built for the Fair but it was there.    Well that’s my story anyway & I’m sticking to it.  This is the last card we did using the Feeling Sentimental stamp set from Sale-a-brations.  I just love this set and it’s breaking my heart to have it retire so quickly. 

Another design by Carolyn King from down under.  Twelve layers just on the front alone—but who’s counting?

Sycamore Street Birthday

I love this Designer Series Paper.  Such a rich color palate with a variety of designs makes it so versatile.  I have thoroughly enjoyed using it during Sale-a-bration.  And it was FREE!!!

A Perfect Day

This was a quick and easy card to put together.  The vivid colors of the Sycamore Street Desiger Series Paper and the sentiment is what makes it outstanding.  Maybe I should send it to myself.  I wouldn’t mind having a perfect day.

Sycamore Street Pinwheel

I cased this card from a swap Sally Nusbaum received at Leadership. I thought it was adorable. I didn't get the name of the source. It's just too cute not to share.  The base of the card is 4 ¼ x 5 ½ with Island Indigo.  Whisper White is cut at  7’1/2” x 5 ¼” and scored at 4”.  The Sycamore Street DSP is cut at 3 ¼” x 5” and attached to the card front.  I punched a scrap using the 2 ½” circle punch to use as a template to position the circle placement on the front of the card.  Punch through both the Whisper White and DSP at the same time.  I also punched another scrap and folded it in fourths to locate the center of the circle for the brad placement.  The pinwheel actually rotates when attached through the back Whisper White cardstock.  Once the pinwheel was attached, I mounted it to the Island Indigo card base.  I quick stamp and ribbon finishes the delightful card.
