A cup of coffee

I was inspired by Lorri Heiling's card.  You can click on her name to see her tutorial.
I really like how this turned out.  The inside holds a gift card:
Isn't that a fun way to give a Starbuck's card?

Colors: Cocoa, Colonial White, Kraft Cardstock
Stamps: For Every Occasion (retired), old wood lips stamp I had on hand
Accessories: Taffeta Ombre Ribbon

Pop Can Pins and Card

So lately I have been hooked on making pins from aluminum pop cans.

I started out making this style that I saw on Dawn Griffith's blog.
But then I found a new flower die and made these two styles:

These are so much fun to make and I think they make a great gift when added to a card.

Colors: Black, Watermelon (retired) and Juniper
Stamps: Floral Delights, Intrinsic Backgrounds

Pop Up Card

I made this card for my "baby," Renae, who just turned 10 yesterday.
I totally cased this card from another blog, but it was too cute not to!

Here is the inside:
I just love how it turned out!

August Stamp Camp Projects

Here are this month's Stamp Camp cards!  The first card is a decoder card.  See the three circles on the right?  It's very hard to see the images stamped behind the red isn't it?  Well, not with the decoder!
Pretty cool, huh!

Stamps: Pair-a-Phrase, Surprise
Colors: Holiday Red, Crystal Blue, White Daisy
Accessories: Red Cellophane, Ribbon

I used the National Papercrafting Month special stamp set on this card.  It's called Pair-a-Phrase and it's a great double D-size set (two full D-size sets in one envelope) worth $35.90.  You can get it Free by spending $75.00.
But that's not all!  You also qualify to get the stamp of the month for just $5.00, along with a Free A-size alphabet stamp set called Typeface!
What a great month to place an order with Close To My Heart!

Here's the second card.  It showcases the Stamp of the Month, Wicked.
It's a Halloween set, but I wanted to show that it's not just for Halloween.

Stamps: Wicked
Papers: Roxy Paper Pack (new!)
Colors: Sorbet, Tulip, Black
Accessories: Bling Buttons (new!), crystals, floss
