Bat Mitzvah Card

I made this Bat Mitzvah pocket card from the same tutorial from the Hanukkah Card in my previous post.

I'm not happy with how the Mazel Tov images stamped, but I figured I'd post this anyway in case it gave someone ideas.

When you pull the pocket card insert out it says "Congratulations on your Bat Mitzvah".

I only used one Stampin Up! set on this card - Hebrew Holidays which is retiring now.

Hanukkah Pocket Card

Here's a Hanukkah Pocket card I put together tonight. There is a great tutorial out on SplitCoastStampers that shows you how to make these very easy cards. You can find that tutorial here if you are interested.

I used two Stampin Up! Hanukkah sets, Festival Fun and Hebrew Holidays for this pocket card.

The ink is Timber Brown Stazon ink. I'm a HUGE Stazon ink fan, and anytime I can use it for outline stamping, I do. The ink doesn't smear (unless your using copic markers) and is crisp and clear every time. I do have re-inkers and re-ink my black pad religiously, but so far I have not had to do so with the other colors.

Stamp identification

I just received a package of Jewish stamps that I won in an auction, and there is a stamp in there that doesn't have any company name indexed on it. I was wondering if anyone out there knows the company?

My Hanukkah Cards for 2007

Here's my 2007 Hanukkah Cards. The windows are made from Sizzix dies (I chopped the curvy top off). I usually put transparancy sheets beind the windows to look like glass, but we just moved a few months ago, and I can't find them :(

The stamps are from Stampin Up! called Festival Fun. I do believe this set is retired, but you can usually find it on Ebay every so often.

Have A "Beary" Happy Hanukkah

Bear Stamp is by Anita's. Lettering was cut from my Cricut George cartridge.
I don't consider this card yet finished - it's missing a lot... but it's one that I'll put away for a while and come back to it... and then maybe I might know what to add...

Stampin Up! Hebrew Holidays - Retiring!

So what does this mean?

This means that the new Stampin UP Catalog will most likely have another Judaica themed stamp set in the new catalog. What does that mean for you? You won't be able to get it (easily) after the set is gone.

If you don't know what the Stampin Up! Hebrew Holidays set is visit this link here and go to page 47.

For examples to use this set, see the SplitCoastStampers Gallery here.
