Whimsical Tree ~ "cased"

WOW girls! 2 cards in a few days! How soes that make you feel? It's great to squeeze a little time in for catching up real quick. I feel like with my new job I have little to NO time. What time I do have, everyone else wants it. Even my "nap" time! And I have a hard enough time sleeping during the day as it is. Anyway, the job is going great! Not too much stress on my back (which is my main concern). Other than a bunch of teenagers last night pushing & rushing the door when they opened for the midnight showing, it's a lot of fun.
Anyway, here is my version of Stampin' & Scrappin's card! Loved the idea of using this stamp for a whimsy looking tree.
STAMPS: Doodle This, Cute Converse (retired)
INKS: Garden Green, Close to Cocoa, Real Red,
PAPER: Real Red, White, Yo Yo Yellow
ACCESSORIES: Spring Bouquet Punch (retired), Red Glitter Glue

Santa Ornament Card

Hey girls! Hope you are gearing up for the holidays ahead. I know I am. Sorry I missed last week, but I started a new job. I think I am getting use to a different schedule now and will hopefully get my time management under control. Any way, here is what I worked on last week for my Card Nite Monday & Tuesday. I got to use my "break time" for prepping. Which I really needed for this card as you can see. I got out my coluzzle, which I haven't used in a while, and really put it to use this month. The girls really seemed to like this card/ornament. Hope you do too.

STAMPS: Jolliest Time of the Year
INK: Basic Black pad & marker, Real Red marker, Yo Yo Yellow marker
PAPER: Green Galore, White, Basic Gray
ACCESSORIES: Coluzzle, 2-Way Glue, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 1/16 Hole Punch, Silver Cord, Scallop Sissors

1st Card Box

OK girls, the moment you've been waiting for! Here is what I've been working on. It's my first card box. Of course I still need to do my 20 OSW cards for the inside of this box. This is what I am wanting to do for my Stamp Camp next month. I really like how my lid closure came out. I punched 4 holes in the side and one in the back to weave ribbon through. I left it straight around the front and added a clear button layered on some Close to Cocoa cs and overlayed with a rub-on. So what do you think?

STAMPS: Exotic Blooms (love this set!)
INKS: Close to Cocoa marker, Only Orange marker, Pretty In Pink pad & marker
PAPERS: Whisper White 12x12, Close to Cocoa
