My grandson really loved the card I made for my friend for her birthday and said he would like to make one for his dad. Of course who am I to deny this request, so this morning we sat and made telescopic cards together. (I am certainly getting plenty of practice using the Circle Scissors Plus) Young Matthew was really taken with the Owl Punch and really wanted to use it on his card as well as the beer glass from Cheers to You stamp set. The sentiment was from Fifth Avenue Floral. All in all he used a mixture of stamp sets and punches, but he had a wonderful time making his card and it was all done with minimal help from his Nan. I was so proud of him for sitting there and keeping on with his project. He gave the card to his dad and it was lovely to see how pleased and happy he was to be given this special card from his son, Maybe I have another member of the family that is interested in Stampin' Up! In the words of his older brother and cousin. "This card is way sik". I found out that "way sik" is so much better than "sik", which really means its awesome!. Well I think he is an awesome young man for making this for his dad. Till next time bye for now....

Barb Mullikin it is a lovely creation using the Big Shot and the Circle Scissors Plus, which I must admit that I dont use often enough. I think the trick is to have it out where it can be easily accessed and therefore used! The colours I used were So Safron, Perfect Plum and Whisper White, I lightly sponged around the edges of the Whisper White with Perfect Plum and used the Stamp n Write Marker to add the little design around the edge of the second layer. Cottage Garden was the stamp set I used because I love the delicate forms of the flowers and the tendrils, of which I stamped in Pear Pizazz. I finished the card off with little butterflies that were run throught the Big Shot using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. To hold the circles together I used some Butterfly Brads (not SU) but they seemed to bring the card together. My friend loved her card and I loved making it for her. We took her out to lunch to a resaurant nearby and had a lovely afternoon, and when we came home we held an impromptu class where everyone made one of these cards too. My next post is going to be another telescopic card, but with a very special person making it. Bye for now.....
