Sister Birthday Card

Yep, another Sister having a Birthday ~ there are a lot of us!!  LOL!!!

I used Wisteria Wonder as my card, layered with Regal Rose and more Wisteria Wonder ran through the Polka Dot Embossing Folder and the other diagonal half is Cheerful Treat DSP.  The ribbon across the center is Whisper White Organza.  I used a circle of  Regal Rose and ran it through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, distressed the edges and sponged some Early Espresso and layered on my Cupcake from the Easy Events Stamp Set on Water Color Paper and colored with a Blender Pen and Water Color Crayons and a Water Color Pencil.  I sponged around the cupcake with Early Espresso. Then added some Rhinestone Jewels.

 The inside was computer generated but I stamped the flowers on the sides with a stamp from Just Believe Stamp Set in Wisteria Wonder, just to tie it all together.  Hope my Sis' has a great Birthday and enjoys our good wishes.

Daughter's Birthday Card

Here's the card I made for my daughter for her Birthday.

The base was Melon Mambo.  I ran some Old Olive through the Big Shot using the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder and added some Basic Pearls in some of the flower centers.  The DSP is Cheerful Treat.  The Happiest Wishes on your Birthday is from the Hostess Set Happiest Birthday Wishes.  A little Crumb Cake CS and sponging, ribbon is Seam Binding Crumb cake.  Added a little more of the DSP to the flap of a Crumb Cake Envelope...Happy Birthday!

Student of the Week Poster

My Grandson was "Student of the Week" last week and we created this poster for him to take to his 4th Grade Class.  Wow...4th Grade ALREADY????

He loved sharing all his favorite activities and pastimes with his teacher and classmates.

Another Wedding Surprise for Tina!

I also made a little candy box for Tina using the idea from our UPLINE Meeting with Patty Bennett last month.  Cindee Wilkinson (Just Sponge It) showed us how to do this altered matchbox and candy favor.

The little candies are stamped with the new It's a Wrap Occasions Stamp Set and go around a little candy bar without actually gluing to the candy wrapper. I put the glue on the inside and wrap the other end so they are lose from the actual candy bar (we learned at our meeting that Hershey's has a rule against gluing directly over their trademark).  I used the new Stripes Embossing Folder for the lid and the label that punches out with the Matchbox.  Again, used Tina and John's colors of Black/White and Rust (aka Cajun Craze in my stamp room!).
I embossed around the label with some Whisper White Ink.
