It's been a couple of days...of no crafting time. Wednesday, I shopped at Sam's after work; came home, packed all that in, put all that away, fixed supper, eat and was ready to bed. Thursday, I shopped at Wal-mart after work, price matched oodles of stuff; came home, had the Dale pack all that in (hee hee), put all that away, fixed supper, eat and then was ready for bed. Friday, I'm off! YAY. And I woke up at 1 AM with my sinuses dripping clear fluid. Ick. That set the stage for a low key Friday at home. Forget the WHB, I'm stamping. All day long...and had a nap, too.
Remember the day I went nuts with the onsie die? Those are going to be card fronts. One of the projects I worked on Friday was cutting card bases for those onsies die cut card fronts.

I cut up 12 x 12 Whisper White cardstock. Not really a biggie for me, as I rarely scrap a page with a white base. Notice on the die, there'a a row of dots?

Here's what it looks like before it goes in the Big Shot. Notice the measurements - cut my 12 x 12 to 12 x 5.5. I saved the 1 inch strip - I have a project for that 1 inch strip. I'm sure these are not the most CS efficient measurements; however, these are what I used. One onsie will have a Pear Pizzaz base.

Here's my pile of scraps; I have already used these up. I'll share those projects in the next post.

So, now I have the unembellished card fronts cut and card bases cut. Next up is embellishing the card fronts.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a moo'valous day!
