Cards on the go kit

My upline shared this cool idea with us at a meeting last year. This is a mini version (hers used 20 of the regular size cards and a bigger box). You use the plastic stamp case, puch two holes in the top to string the ribbon and fill it with cards and envelopes.

The text reads: Cards on the Go In a hurry? In need of a card for that special occasion? For a birthday wish, a co-worker that needs a lift, or to thank someone for that special gift? Here are some cards for you!

Baby wipe cards

Boy that title sounds weird huh? Anyway, with a nearly one year old crawling around the house I have plenty of baby wipes to play with. Here are two cards that I made for an upcoming workshop. The first card is based on one from my grandma upline. I changed it up a bit.
You take a baby wipe and put a few drops of different color reinkers on it. That is your ink pad now! You just dab your stamp into it and stamp onto your paper. Super easy.

The second card uses the same baby wipe. You kind of wad it up and then swipe it across white cardstock to make this cool background. Two techniques in one!

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
CS: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Old Olive, Ruby Red, White, Vanilla
Ink: Vanilla, Old Olive
Other: Old Olive, Ruby Red, More Mustard reinkers, Baby wipe, Cutter Kit, Chocolate Chip Ribbon
