Happy Grandparents Day!

I wanted to make Grandparents Day cards form my daughter's Grandparents and I decided she needed to help! Luckily she enjoys stamping. And for being 3 years old, she is very good at it! Of course, she had a great teacher! I inked the stamps for her and handed them to her and she stamped them on the paper. For the most part the images were pretty good. For the first one we used the following supplies: Cardstock: Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Very Vanilla and Certainly Celery; Ink: Rose Red, Ballet Blue, So saffron, Certainly Celery; Stamps: Wild About You; Accessories/Tools: Scallop Edge Punch; Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon; Sizzlit die; Swiss Dots Embossing Folder; Big Shot; Corner Round Punch. I would like to also mention that the Big Shot is so easy to use, even a 3 year old can do it! I sandwiched everything together and letter my daughter turn the handle. She just thought that was the coolest thing. The next one we did a little differently. I used different colors and a little different layout.



Cardstock: Chocolate Chip; Sage Shadow; Barely Banana; Very Vanilla; Ink: Sage Shadow, Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Bashful Blue; Pretty in Pink; Stamps: Wild About You; Tools: Ticket Corner Punch; Paisley Embossing Folder; Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon; Sizzlet die.
