CORNER POP UP  AND WEATHERGRAMS

Halloo….yes, well thinks have been rather busy here at Pooh corners… but I want to quickly share this card with you… actually I have shown you this card before as I have used this design many times for both Halloween and also for a stand up calendar if you use those little calendars that you can get from IMPRESS RUBBER STAMPS..my previous post was called EYE CANDY 2I DIDN’T GIVE THIS CARD ENOUGH CREDIT… so Dawn posted...CORNER POP UP and it does a better job of giving this little card  more credit…

the corner pop up is on the left the teal one and the one on the right is just a basic card using the same stamps…but not a pop up… or pop out ..however you want to say it… in any case the corner effect which allows it to stand upright on its own is just terrific…and as I mentioned I have used it several times to display one of those little calendars for on someone’s desk…

My one HINT for the corner card is that I tend to use heavier card stock then STAMPIN UP DOES…so I don’t think you need those layers on diagonal fold up part i.e. the bottom… if you do use them please think about using only decorator paper /text weight and glue it down well as if the card is opened and closed a lot those pieces will want to pull off…this is also a great card for using that balloon punch or the balloon dies… and using a photograph on one side is good also a nice touch to make a very personal card…

2 rejects of my graceful envy for this year’s contest
them was communication decided the top one was too over the top with the foil and the bottom one I left out the word avenue and was afraid it wouldn’t get there..

the one I did send but the po lady says it won't get there as she throws it in bin cause of the return on the back ...says the machine will read that and not read FROM and so will send to that address which was WA so by time it gets back to here if it does too late for contest...:(...very sad face

I don’t think it was a winner in any case but still since its a PO contest and they say put return address plus e mail on the back with word FROM… hmmmmm…in any case I won’t know till summer sometime when they announce the winners and if it got there I will receive a” thanks for participating ” even if I didn’t win… bummer…if all this is repeat … sorry…

SALLY PENLEY’S GRACEFUL ENTRY….wow… I feel certain she will be a winner or honorable mention…

about a month ago I got a request from AUSTRALIA for some info on weathergrams… some time back I posted a blog on Weathergrams and some one over there referred them to my blog and then she wrote to me asking for a little more info…I was so excited tears almost ran down my leg….lol… I sent them a bunch of info and then I had a second request from the group that wants to exchange with them ( so 2 Australian calligraphy groups and I asked to participate also) I contacted a few of my groups here in the states and asked for them to send me weathergrams without string because I thought it would be more fun for their groups if they got more than just my weathergrams well we are still working on it… collecting them and then we’ll exchange them…. but SALLY PENLEY in addition to make that great GRACEFUL envy.. showed me that she had 20 WEATHERGRAMS she made and could she send them to me…. well that did it I was now doing a snoopy dance around the house and talking so fast that my husband had no idea what was going one… so here is a shot of Sally’s Weathergrams…bless you friend for participating…. I am just to excited… meanwhile I am still hoping to get more from the other groups and one of my SEQUIM buddies CAROLE CROSE also has sent me two envelopes full… I am on a roll… I can feel LLOYD REYNOLDS LOOKING DOWN ON ME AND BEING PLEASED….
