Chalkboard Daisies

Alright, I know that not all of this picture came out, but in my defense I do have to say I've tried downloading this card tons of times over the course of 4 days! I finally just gave up and hope you can picture the rest of it on your own. This is another one of my "New School Colors" Therapy Card Nite cards. The bottom portion that you can not see is the rest of the scallop oval/oval punch which says: Thank You for your friendship. As you can see, there is a piece of ribbon that is underneath it and then there is about an inch of the card left to the bottom. So all you bloggers, do you ever struggle with downloading your pictures? I really like this technique. It is pretty much the same as poppin' pastels! Which is what I may do for next months technique nite theme of Therapy Card Nite!

STAMPS: Upsy Daisy
INKS: Versa Mark
PAPERS: Kraft, Basic Black, White
ACCESSORIES: Scallop Oval Punch, Oval Punch, Ribbon from SAB ribbon bundle, Stampin' Pastels

Butterfly Flowers

My theme for Therapy Card Nite this month was New School Colors. I use a play on words for themes sometimes, so this month was a combo of school cards and In Colors. This card, although for some reason came out kinda dark, was made with all In Colors. I am really liking our new In Colors this year! I am ready for my 3rd pack already and it's only August! The girls are really getting a kick out of playing with the Big Shot also. How did we get along without this tool for so long???

STAMPS: Flight of the Butterfly
INKS: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzelberry, Dusty Durango, Green Galore
PAPERS: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Very Vanilla
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Top Note Die

Back to School!

Wow! I can't believe August has come and almost gone already! This month has gone by fast and now school has started. My youngest started high school today. I can hardly believe it. It seems like yesterday he was starting kindergarten, now he is a freshman. It's just like the song "Don't blink". How true it is. Anyway, this is a card I did based off of the backpacks I've seen made. I thought this would make a cute card. So I just took the front of the pack and made it into a card. My girls got a big kick out of this non stamping card. Just some bending, punching, and wa-la it's done!

PAPERS: Rich Razzelberry, Melon Mambo, White
ACCESSORIES; Corner Rounder, Large Star Punch, Star Punch, Score Blade

Secret Sister Goodies....

Just finished a round of Secret Sisters with Splitcoaststampers and these are the goodies I made my lil' sister. Going off what she shared about herself and her likes, I decorated containers and boxes that held her gifts. I am really liking the new Razzleberry Lemonade DSP. Oh my goodness, the new In Colors are sooo yummy!!! I made the box at the bottom of the picture here for the Extreme Skateboard set I got her. Now that I have the knack down for making boxes of different sizes I've noticed I've been making them alot now.

For this package of Caramel flavored Hot Chocolate, I cased a template from Jamie and used the flowered Crused Curry & Dusty Durango DSP for the body and the Soft Suede Top Note Die Cut for the topper. I also used a stamp from last years SAB Yummy set and embossed it.

Here I decorated a pringles can and filled it with Caramel filled Ghiridelli Chocolates. Once again I used Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and the Eastern Blooms stamp set. I really enjoy making these cans as you can fill them up with just about anything.

She said she loved "baked goods" candle scents so I got her a baked cookies candle and decorated a holder with one of last years Rub-on sets called Love and Happiness and topped it off with the wide Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon.
