Sympathy Card

I recently sent this card to my Sister and BIL who lost their sweet FIL.  I used the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set and colored with pencils and the Blender Pen.  You can't really tell from the picture but the base card is Poppy Parade CS and the Scallop Trim Border punched edge is Pumpkin Pie CS.  The background paper is Baja Breeze CS and I ran that through the Flower Garden Embossing Folder and sponged with Early Espresso.  The little butterfly is from the Clearly For You Stamp Set using Baja Breeze Ink Pad and punched out with the Small Oval Punch.

The Hat Box

Isn't this just the cutest little hat box?  I got the instructions and idea from one of my favorite sites, Laurie's Stampin' Spot.  Laurie Zoellmer comes up with the cutest ideas.  She used her empty embellishment containers as the base for the hat, what a great idea.  At Stampin' UP! you can even buy the empty containers Stampin' Up sells them, you get six for only $3.95 Stampin' Store Containers (103649).

I put the necklace I posted yesterday inside and used the hat box as my gift container for my Twin, Judy.  She loved it!  Thanks for sharing your idea and instructions Laurie. :o)

I used Melon Mambo ran through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and used some of the Cardboard packing from the bottom of DSP to give the brim some strength.  The flowers are punched from Black CS using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  I used Basic Rhinestones in the center of the flowers and a Rhinestone Brad colored with my Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker to color it to match the hat.  The ribbon is the 1-1/2" Basic Black striped Grosgrain Ribbon.  Check out Laurie's site, she has so many great ideas!

Grad Card

Here's the card I made to match the Grad Box .....

I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set for the Happy Graduation.  More Red Glimmer Paper for the owl's vest and Elegant Soiree DSP for his body.  The Black and Red CS was cut diagonally and the ran through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I used the Owl Punch and Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch and Decorative Label Punch.  I used the Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine to cover the seam down the diagonal.  I mounted it all on a card base of Whisper White.

Grad Box

I created this Graduation Box for a friend's High School Grad Party.  I used the invitation they sent to cut out the pictures, 2011 & name.  I used Basic Black CS for the Box and the Red Glimmer Paper to decorate.  Also used the Large Scallop Punch, Small Oval Punch and Medium Oval Punch.  I put his gift inside.

Kleenex Box Cover

I finally made another cover for Kleenex Boxes.  I saw it on Laurie's Stampin' Spot some time ago.  I used the same DSP that she did (Botanical Gazette).  Just love the soft colors.  The basic box was done with Pacific Point CS.  Hope you like it!

The instructions for the box can be found at Splitcoast Stampers (just click the link and it'll take you there).

Since I got my computer going again they changed me from Internet Explorer to Firefox ~ some getting used to, especially in how I need to transform my pictures to show up better than just an x!  LOL!!
