"Birthday Bella Rose"

I decided to make some birthday cards this weekend. I made some birthday cards for a set. I made three of these with the pearls and then I made three of the same card only without the pearls. I am kinda mad at myself cause I only have this one to share. But I am excited about stamping again. So I will be doing more this week and hope to get back on track. I know I keep sayin that and I do have good intentions but I just seem to get busy and forget about stamping. Tony will be gone next week so I will for sure stamp my heart out and I have a class on Friday March 6th so I have to prep for that. I placed my order and as soon as that comes in I will get busy.
Stamps: Birthday Whimsy
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Bella Rose

"Allison Ohran Case"

We made this card in stamp camp last weekend. It is a complete case of Allison Ohran's card. It is beautiful. Allison is a very talented stamper, you should check out her SCS gallery if you get a chance. Her cards and gifts are simple, which I like the most.
The colors and the layout on this card are so perfect. I did see another one in the SCS gallery that used the same stamps and layout but she used different paper and colors. But I love the pink, red, and brown together. The hearts and greeting are embossed with white embossing powder. The hearts are punched out with SU's heart punch and the greeting with SU's word window punch.
Stamps: Love You Much
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa, Candy Lane DP
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: White embossing powder, Linen Thread, Hand Held Circle Punch, SU Heart To Heart punch, SU Word Window Punch, Corner Rounder, Dimensionals

"Itty Bitty Buds"

I love this card. We made it in stamp camp. It is simple, full of color, and a very cool layout. The paper is the new Raspberry Tart and the stamp set is the hostess set Itty Bitty Buds. There is no greeting on this card cause it is an all occasion card. You could make a bunch of these to give as a set. Which I think I will do. The layout is perfect for using up all those extra strips of designer paper that you might throw away cause you don't know what to do with them.
Stamps: Itty Bitty Buds
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart DP
Ink: Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Old Olive
Accessories: Dimensionals

"Ghirardelli® Box"

This is another project that we did at stamp camp. It is a box that holds Ghirardelli® Chocolates. There is a tutorial on splitcoast which you can find here. However, our box only holds three chocolates, the one on scs holds 4. It was super easy to make too. Another fun gift to give to teachers. Just remember that when you put the dimensionals on to put them on the bottom of the scallop so you can tuck the lid under the top of the scallop to keep it closed.

Paper: Always DP, Pink Pirouette, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose
Accessories: SU Scallop Border Punch, SU Scallop Circle Punch, SU Hearts Punch, Dimensionals, Tacky Tape, Ghirardelli Chocolates

"Bath Salts"

We made this fun project in my stamp camp last weekend. My demo got the containers from a friend. We filled them with bath salts. They smell sooooo good. These are fun easy things to make for teachers, neighbors, friends, etc... You could use any tin container. We wrapped the paper around the tin, filled it with bath salts, added the paper on the lid, wrapped the ribbon around it and called it done. I wrote bath salts on the tag on the top so who ever gets it will know what is inside.
Stamps: Punches Three (hostess)
Paper: Pacific Point DP, Baja Breeze, Whisper White

"A Little Love"

This is another card we will be doing in my class Friday. I also made this one several years ago when I took the class that I am now teaching. Once again a simple card that packs a punch. Gotta love simple. The chair stamp is from the retired set A Little Love and the word valentine is from Everyday Flexible Phrases. I am almost ready for my class. I just need to come up with a 3D project. You would think that would be easy for me but it isn't. Most of the people in my class take it every month so I would like to come up with something new and different.
Stamps: A Little Love, Everyday Flexible Phrases
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon
Accessories: Red Gingham Ribbon, SU Red Marker

"Valentine Card"

This is one of the cards that we will be making in my class on Friday. I made this one in my stamp classes a few years ago. It's pretty simple, that's probably why I like it. Both of stamps are retired. Most of the other cards that we will be making I have already posted. I am excited for my class. Although I am not ready. I still have a lot of prepping to do. I am still trying to find a job. I did get the lunch lady job but I haven't started yet. I am tying to get a part time waitress job. What I don't understand is why places want you to come back for two and three interviews for a part time minimum wage job, and then you don't get it. I have 11 years serving experience and no one wants me. I am almost running out of places to apply. LOL
