Good day !! Its Sunday, my favourite day of the week. A great time to relax and hang out with my little family ! My hubby went out last night to a friends house, so once Jack was in bed I made a trip down to my Stamp Room and created the MOST FUN project !! A set of flash cards !!! The (retiring tomorrow) Storytime DSP has 2 sheets of the most fun little tags, each one showcasing a letter of the alphabet or a number - I thought it would make PERFECT flash cards !! My son loves numbers and letters, so I can see us getting a lot of use out of these ! I even made a fun case for them out of one of our Clear Mount Stamp Cases ! I used 2 new stamp set, the ABC 123 Outline Alphabet and Label Love, along with the retiring Scallop Squares Duo Die. Take a look at this SO COOL project !!
Here is a look at the front of the case. I cut the Riding Hood Red grid pattern DSP (from Storytime) at 7-1/4" by 10-1/4" and it fits inside the clear sleeve perfectly. I took a thin strip of the writing paper looking DSP (doesn't that look like the old fashioned school sketch books !!) and stamped "Jackson" on it using Midnight Muse ink. The ABCs and 123 pieces were extras from the Alphabet piece of DSP. So quick and easy !! And all of this is inside the protective cover of the Case, so it will stay clean and tidy !
Heres a view of the inside, with all of the flash cards in it. YES they do all fit nicely !! But I am sure, the new Wood Mount Cases (either Full or Half) would also work ! I die cut all of these Scalloped Squares from the Scallop Square Duo Die (this is the bigger square of course) in my colors of Wild Wasabi, Riding Hood Red, Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Basic Gray. All of these colors are in the Storytime DSP. I decided which color scalloped square would be for which DSP piece based on the color of the Letter or Number on the DSP piece. For example, the 1 is in Wild Wasabi so I did the Scallop in Wild Wasabi. Makes it easy to match up the cardstock to the DSP this way ! Of course, that could just be my OCD tendencies coming through. LOL
Here is a closer look at the cards. On the back of each card, I stamped this fun frame image from the new Label Love stamp set. I used the ABC 123 Outline Alphabet & Numbers set to identify which card it was from the back as well. So if I am "quizzing" Jack, I will know what card it is from the back as well !! I LOVE this fun Outline alphabet !! And did you know, it has a matching Sketch alphabet that you can layer with it !?! SO cute !! And they are a great size for cardmaking as well, don't you think !?!
Here is a close up shot of some of the letters. They were done the same way as the alphabet, and the numbers included in the DSP pack are 1-10. LOVE this cute idea so much !! I have them to my son this morning and he has been playing with them ever since !!
Thanks a lot for coming by today ! I really think this fun project would be a great gift for any toddler in your life, or even for a new mom !! Very unique !! If you would like to make one of these fun collections of Flash Cards, don forget to get your Storytime DSP before it retires tomorrow !! And pick up some fun NEW products from the new catalogue while you're at it !! have a great rest of your weekend and Happy Stamping !!
