Take It to Heart Washer Necklace

Here are my Take It to Heart washer necklaces and the last of my Leadership swaps. I always like to make a 3D item for swapping and as I’ve mentioned before I love the bird image from the Take It to Heart stamp set. I’ve wanted to try these little washer necklaces since I saw them sooo…. I used the Take It to Heart stamp set and made these in both in a pink version and a blue version. I also made one using the Mixed Bunch stamp set which I thought turned out very cool too.

My daughter, who I use as my stamping critic, since I can always get a very honest response from her, thought these were so cool she wanted to give them as her Christmas gifts to all her girl friends – Since they were such a hit with Kaitlin I knew I had to make these for one of my Leadership swaps.

If you would like to learn how to make these Take It to Heart Washer Necklaces yourself I’ll be giving a class on them next month. Check back in the next couple of days. I’ll be posting more information.

Take It to Heart Leadership Swap

I love the bird image from the Take It to Heart stamp set and of course our new coordinating Framelits from the new Occasions Mini Catalog don’t you? So I definitely wanted to use it for at least one of my swaps for the upcoming Leadership Conference in Texas that starts on Wednesday.

Soo… This week I’ll be sharing with you some of my swaps that I made for Leadership. I haven’t posted lately since I have been working feverishly on them to get them finished in time. Once again I didn’t start early enough since I couldn’t make up my mind which designs I wanted to make.

Here is the first card I decided to do. It took me a while to come up with the design but I was very happy with the end result and the guys in my house thought it makes a nice masculine card too which is always a plus.

My card uses the Take It to Heart stamp set, Paper Doily Die, and the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies. Don’t you just love all the new coordinating products in the new Occasions Mini? I knew I just had to have the Loving Thoughts stamp set for the sentiment when I saw it– it is just so versatile and is great with the Take It to Heart sets banner. I chose to make a sympathy card this time. I’d love to hear what you think – Leave me a comment and let me know.
