Guitar Thank You

I made this card as a thank you card for my son to send out. All of his friends and family gave him cash for his birthday recently, and he bought a new electric guitar with that money, so I thought a guitar shaped card would be appropriate!

Christmas Stamp-a-stack

This is the card we'll be making tomorrow night at my Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack event. I used "Snow Swirled" and "Bella Toile" stamp sets from Stampin' Up! to create the images. Colors are Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla, and accessories are gold ep and Very Vanilla ribbon.

This is for today's technique challenge on SCS - Mini Pizza Boxes. This was a fun & quick little project, and it makes a box that's just the right size for one cookie! I used Barely Banana cardstock, Not Quite Navy and So Saffron ink, and "Fresh Cuts" stamp set from Stampin' Up! All edges are sponged , & the flower is popped up on dimensionals. You can find a tutorial to make this box on SCS here .

This card is for today's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I used "Sock Monkey" for the main image (duh!), "Classic Backgrounds" for the background images, and the word party from "Everyday Flexible Phrases". Colors used are Baja Breeze, Barely Banana, Real Red, and Creamy Caramel cs & ink, along with Stampin' Write markers in Real Red & Brocade Blue. All edges are sponged, and the card is finished with Caramel Gingham ribbon, and a blue flower button from Designer Button collection.

Jon's 13th Birthday card

I made this card last night for my son's 13th birthday. I used Sage Shadow for the main card color & background stamps, Creamy Caramel for the cone, and Orchid Opulence, Regal Rose, and Very Vanilla for the scoops. The "13" is actually a letter "I" and "E" punched out of a scrap of leftover Vintage Violet cs using alphabet punches from Armada. The background stamps are from "Big Bold Birthday", and the ice cream cone is textured using "Canvas" background stamp.
