Here is a card for my son who turned 19 recently. He loves the Oregon Ducks so I made it in the school colors. Rather simple, but masculine cards are pretty hard to add a lot of embellishments to! This is my recent creation for my "Use Every Stamp" challenge over on the Use Every Stamp blog sponsored by My Creative Classroom.

Another project for my Use Every Stamp 2013 challenge! My niece recently had a baby so this card is for her. The tags were made with Papertrey Ink Tiny Tags dies. I stamped the tags with images from Papertrey Ink's Boy Basics-Simple Circles and a small flower background set that I not sure who made. The stamps I used are from Just the Ticket by Papertrey Ink. My inspiration came from a long ago post by Ashley Cannon Newell - check out her blog, she rocks!

I am way behind in posting projects, that's for sure. I blew right past 2012 and into 2013! I am participating in Use Every Stamp 2013 sponsored by My Creative Classroom, and this is one of my projects using two stamps from my collection. This is a glassine bag containing goodies for my husband for Valentine's. The two stamps are from long ago, I don't know the xo manufacturer. February was stamped with a roller letter stamp from Provocraft. Wow, two down, a bazillion to go! Check out My Creative Classroom, they have awesome classes at very affordable prices!

I made a dress for my granddaughter and appliqued a t-shirt with a "firecracker" for my grandson so they can celebrate the 4th in style! My sewing machine is going to the shop this week, I had to coax these two projects out of it, so the stitching is quite quirky, to say the least. I posted the back of the dress first, I love the big white buttons!

So I decided it was time to make my grandson his first Super Hero Cape. I used an old t shirt (recycle! reuse!) and cut the back out, leaving the neck band so he could slip it over his head. I saw this idea on another blog, but can't remember the name to give credit where credit is due, so my apologies to the owner of this idea! I found an image of a garbage truck ( he LOVES the garbage truck) and printed out the image on transfer paper. So far, so good. Got the image ironed on just like the directions said, waited til it cooled, peeled off the backing on the transfer paper, and this is what I got:
OOPS, didn't think about the fact that the ENTIRE SHEET would transfer! So back to the drawing board. Found another t shirt, printed the image and cut around it this time. Success!
Not quite as cute as the bright blue, but still pretty cool. I hope he enjoys being a Super Hero in his new cape!
