Hello, hello, hello! Boy, feels great being back in my office creating. I now have Russ home from the hospital and I’m playing nurse maid. But, I’m able to get in my stamp room in between waiting on him. Actually, I don’t mind taking care of him. I’m so very grateful he made it through his heart surgery on Wednesday with flying colors and his heart rhythm so far is perfect! Wooohoooo! Thanks to all of you that kept him and me in your thoughts and prayers. We so appreciate it.
A little about today’s tutorial. Do you believe I have been listening to a naked Ipod? Well today I took care of that problem. I purchased a clear hard plastic protective cover and used the card board insert for a template to cut my card stock panel. I knew I wanted a reflection scene so I went to the very best stamp set for this technique (Stampin’ Up! Trendy Trees). You can use the trees in this set to create a reflection super easily. Hang out a moment and check out the tutorial below. Hopefully you will be inspired to personalize your Ipod or Iphone.

Outlined the card board insert that came with the Ipod clear protective cover on Whisper White card stock.
Cut it out, cutting inside of the traced line.
Inserted the Whisper White card stock into the clear cover and traced around the inside of the camera hole.
Used the 3/8″ circle punch to punch out for the camera hole.
Brayered Daffodil Delight ink on the card stock.
Brayered Pumpkin Pie ink on the card stock.
Brayered Cajun Craze ink at the very top of the card stock.
Masked the top half of the card stock using a post it note and brayered Cajun Craze ink at the top of the water.
Brayered Pool Party ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Brayered Tempting Turquoise ink at the very bottom of the card stock.
Took the post it note mask off of the card stock and ripped a very fine edge off of the sticky side of the post it note. Place it on the card stock right below the horizon line.
Stamped the leaves of the tree using Old Olive ink.
Stamped the tree trunk in Chocolate Chip ink.
Sponged Chocolate Chip ink in for the g.round.
Added just a bit of Basic Black ink right at the post it note edge using a sponge.
Removed the mask and stamped the tree leaves and the tree trunk in the water for the reflection using Tempting Turquoise ink.
Sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges of the card stock.
Put the card stock in the clear case and put it on my Ipod. Woohoo! No more naked Ipod. It is now personalized Zindorf style. I believe my IPhone is jealous and will need an outfit too.
It’s time to put my nurses hat on, lol.
May your day be filled with color!
Until my next post. . . . . . . .
