Hybrid Birthday Card

First a little story......I have been stamping. Been making some birthday cards for all the June birthdays, Father's Day etc. I take pics of my creations for here, and to share with my customers etc. Well my camera's memory card decided it didn't want to work anymore! Tells me it's full, then when I go to look at the images on the camera, it tells me there are none. So then how can it be full??? Anyhoo.......I had some nice shots, taken outside in natural sunlight. POOF! Now not on camera. So I wanted to share this hybrid card. I take the cards we get for occasions and use tacky putty to put them on the door. This is my son's birthday card that is hanging on the door! Looks like a life size card in this pic doesn't it! But it's only a 5x7 card. The card is made with MDS (My Digital Studio). I made on my computer and printed the card front onto Whisper White Cardstock. The trimmed and mounted onto sheet folded in half then trimmed down. Layered with Basic Black CS. The stars on the card itself are a stamp in MDS, but I wanted to give it some dimension so I punched some stars with the star punch, added some brads, and popped them up with dimensionals. The two silver circles are leftover from my Father's day cards. (will have them in another post later) Happy Stamping & Knitting! that your drink or mine?

It is always inevitable! Have a party, and someone puts a drink down, and then someone else does the same. Then the problem arises........"Whose drink is whose????" Problem solved!!! We are having a Father's Day/Birthday celebration tomorrow. I don't want to mess with cups since drinks will be bottled water, Lipton 1/2tea, 1/2 lemonade, and beer! I told Mike I needed to make some tags. He replied, " You don't have time for all that!" HAHA! I sure did have time! All I needed was My Digital Studio and some shrink plastic! I got some ink jet shrink plastic at a local stamp convention this past year. I found it in my stash and went to work! Just pulled up a blank page in MDS (My Digital Studio) added the flower and star images and the names, printed on my printer. I cut down the sheets once printed into a strip as the tag, punched a whole with the 1/2" circle punch, then stuck in the toaster oven (I have an old one I use for this and polymer clay). Once they were cool, I added a large jump ring and a pony tail holder! Now we will all have tags for our bottles tomorrow! Love it!
