ANOTHER VERISON OF WIPER CARD

ANOTHER VERISON OF WIPER CARD

This is basically an update/variation on the card I posted on June 7th… ELIZABETH’S SIDE PULL CARD… the difference is basically this one is smaller and will fit your standard size envelope as well as having a slightly smaller pop up…so you don’t have to have an image you can just use a greeting stamp or write your own message…

Kath’s wiper card for Autumn

On this one used a few punched leaves and some that I got at Michael’s I think that were small paper/cloth ( truth I don’t know what they are made out of but it was whole little bag of them ) My stamp from Impress of the birch tree trunks… (ignore the smear too impatient)and one of those little wooden birds which I colored using a sponge and stamp pad ink then I did use the TOMBOW MULTI PURPOSE GLUE ( green and white bottle) to hold the bird on the card.

 TIP:  The Tombow multipurpose glue is my go to glue… I don’t use glue stick and I was introduced to this liquid glue at a quilling demo… Its rather fast drying and I use it for all my goggly eyes and all my embellishments… I used it on the leaves as well.  It does mean that you need to give a little while to dry so moving it off your desk is a good idea…lol… but it seems to hold fast even in the mail…to me that is everything as I hate to send something with the note…SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRE …because they may have to put the card back together again… It does have both a small tip and large one ( I hardly every use the large one) and while the small one will clog you can peel the glue off the end easily and then out it comes… I leave it on my desk standing upright with the small tip down…

I loved this one cause I got a postcard in the mail and it was an ad for a halloween shopping night and I just cut off the ad part and used it on the card and I liked my greeting strut your stuff… I THINK that’s an old KAREN LOCKART (now PINK INK Stamps).  I probably got it at  Impress rubber stamps but I think you can by them directly from Pink Ink. I didn’t take time to check to see if that still had that one but if you want it you can. If you can’t find it on the IMPRESS WEB SITE then you can always call them and see if they have that one.. they have so many stamps etc that not all of them are on line…so never hesitate ask they will tell you how to go about adding it to an order.  IMPRESS is also where you can find the little wooden embellishments like the birds, flowers, travel things etc.  Also, Impress has whole new look to their web site and if had contact info and now you can’t get in …I just told them lost my password and resend it and then when I went in I used my same password again…I think when they switched they may have had few glitches but I put in the same old password for my new one and it worked so for me there was no change.  Some websites will not allow you to reuse the old one but it was not problem here.

Ok so I have said before that a PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS AND I find that a photo of exactly where you put the little tab that ends up being the wiper part of this card is best SEEN rather than written about.  lol… so because I am apple I was able to stop Dawn’s video and snap a screen shot of just where she placed the pop up/wiper part of the card… I thought I’d share with those of you who also need that picture to reassure them that its in the correct place…

You will also note that I used corner punches on each of my tags… I just like the little added texture by clipping those corners… one I rounded them and the other I used a new punch that takes a little bite out of each corner… its not necessary but it I like it.

EYE CANDY….I don’t know if you have ever seen the 3 D sidewalk art before but a friend just sent me this link and I just love looking at this… these are all by Nikolajj Arndt ,one personbut if you google 3 D sidewalk art you will come up with so many sites… I think it listed 47,000… Isn’t the internet amazing…

Speaking of amazing…here is another video of how they make a book…its called BIRTH OF A BOOK…check it out think you will find it amazing too….

Ok that’s it for this week…except to wish my first real CALLIGRAPHY TEACHER , former boss and dear friend DARLENE HELD … HAPPY BIRTHDAY…you are always an inspiration to me.
