With a little leprechaun magic… Mr. Invisible Snowman dusted off all his cupid love for this fun St. Patrick’s Day postcard – originally posted in March 2011.
Here is another “Going Green” postcard with some green roses added and a St. Pat’s coaster. I added a transparent scalloped circle with embossing powder on top of the image portion of the coaster. This is to prevent the ink from bleeding when the coaster absorbs moisture when a drink is placed on top.
So, what is your favorite shape coaster to stamp on?
It is so hard to believe that summer is over when most of the country is having a major heat wave! Well, I hope wherever you are, you are having a wonderful and restful Labor Day … and staying cool!
Today is the last day of our Labor Day Sale – 30% off all in stock stamps!
Promo Code: LABOR30. Sale ends midnight tonight – (PST).
Today’s project may look a bit “labor” intensive, but it is so worth it!
I was getting so tired with all my scraps of paper and post-it notes with login & password info. Frustrated having to hunt through the pile when I forgot which password or which email address (I have 5 now!) I used to create an account…. not to mention if I had changed the password!
So, I finally got my act together and created a WEB Note Book. It has made my life so much easier! I can now find login/password/email info with a flip of a page. I added clear dividers (from Zutter) so I could separate my web book info into different sections… one for personal, one for business and the 3rd section for all my father’s login info – since I do all his banking & payments online too. (Internet tip: To help prevent getting hacked into, use a different email address for different activities – [ie: one only with financial transactions, one only for purchase, etc.] … and use different passwords and user names for each web & email account).
My WEB Note Book was stamped using Multi Step Iris& Multi Step HummingBirds.
If you are interested in stamping your own WEB Note Book, I have uploaded the templates for 4 different inside pages, which can be found HERE.

Today’s project was inspired by a friend. Before celebrating her 50th birthday she made her first jump skydiving (and with her mom too!!!). I recall her comment after the jump … “that was one for the bucket list!”
This tall narrow notepad is an official “Bucket List”. 😉
Instead of using daisies (sorry, dark humor), I decided to stamp some cheery and sunny sunflowers. 🙂 The masking for the letters, flowers, and leaves were done using the “clear embossing masking technique” (more info about this technique can be found HERE ). First I stamped the word “bucket”, then the flowers and leaves followed by the drop shadow for “bucket”. Next time I think I will apply clear imboss directly to the white cardstock (for white letters), then add the drop shadow … followed by filling in the background behind the letters with leaves making the word “bucket” pop more.

When posting my Giant Red Sunflower Tag Card, I realized the original had slipped through the “blogging cracks” and I never shared it … so here it is. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful (and of course … inky) week!
