Today I have a Christmas card to share.
Monday, December 20, 2010
Today, as promised, I have the teacher’s Christmas gifts I made time to craft up over the weekend. While looking for ideas I found a tread on the forum at Papertrey Ink about how to reuse the clear boxes that the stamps come in. One of the ideas was to use it to package up some cocoa and marshmallows, so I took that idea and ran with it. And since I already had the cocoa sliders and the tag that I did for the blog hop it came together pretty quick.
After showing Mr. Sunny for his approval (really I just showed him because I thought it turned out so cool) he was worried the teacher's would not know that the cocoa was in the slider thing. He said I should put some instructions on the back. I told him no problem; I have this super cute stamp set that is perfect for this. So I stamped it on a label and used the label (instructions) to hold the box close, which work out great since I was just push the flap inside the box to close it before.

Happy Birthday Card
STAMPS: PTI Delightful Dahlia, Birthday Bash Sentiment
OTHER: PTI Mat Stack 4, Delightfule Dahlia Die
Due to my never ending Christmas to-do list, I have not had much time for crafting, although I have to make time to whip up some teachers gifts. So I will have pictures next week to share of the final product. But today I have a purple birthday card that I made up a few weeks ago and ending up selling to a co-worker. Since I took the picture some bling was added to the card. For this card I decided to try a technique that Nichole Heady has showcased as an option to do with outline stamps that are traditionally colored in using Copic markers. And since I have not practice nor purchased any markers yet I decided to try it out. I think it worked okay, but I got a bit heavy handed at end and tried to spread out the color as much as possible.

Big Birthday Wish Card
STAMPS: PTI Birthday Bash Sentiments, Background Basic: Woodgrain
PAPER: Rusty Pickle, Basic Grey, CTMH cardstock
Today I have a card I made with two purposes in mind. One was to use this Rusty Pickle paper I picked up at a Scrapbook convention about 4 years ago. I thought the trains were super cute and since I had a boy I would totally be able to use it and a sheet of fire trucks no problem. It’s a good thing I only purchased 1 sheet of each. I did finally make a scrapbook page using the fire trucks which I will share tomorrow. But today I needed a boy birthday card for a birthday party we will be attending later in the month. So to use up the sheet, I made a bunch to have on hand. They were so fast and easy.
