Witch's Wardrobe Box Card

I've had the Taylored Expressions set, Hangin Out - Wicked Wardrobe for a while and when I saw the directions for how to make a box card, I knew what I wanted to do...

Here's a view of the card opened so you can see what's inside the wardrobe!!

I was really happy with how it came out.  I put the message on the back of the wardrobe and it said...





Thanks for stopping by!  Love, Janet

Beach Bucket Bouquet

I know it's almost Halloween and I should be thinking pumpkins and ghosts and autumn leaves but we just got back from a week on Sanibel Island with some good friends and it was hot and summery so I'm thinking beachy thoughts!  I found the shells and the grassy fibers while beach combing!

Thanks for visiting :)

Cardstock: Stampin' Up Poppy Parade & Island Indigo, KC Paper Pad
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics:  Flowers: Y08, Y38, YR07, YR25, YG01, YG67, YG95, YG99, V17, G00 G82, G99,    RV06,  RV10
Pail: B04, B21, B24, BG02, BG05, BG13, BG49   Sand: E33 and E35

Flying Cupcakes

I tried my hand at the "Flying Easel" card that I've seen all over the internet!  It was fun and a lot easier to make than I expected it to be!  The trick is finding a symmetrical stamp to hang in the opening.  It would work for butterflies, Christmas trees, stars, ornaments.  I know I'm fickle, but this is my new favorite layout/fold!  If you want to try it, Google, Flying Easel, and you will find lots of tutorials and videos. 

Here is a view of the card closed...

I stamped the cupcakes 4 times on typing paper, colored them with copics and glued them together with a string in the middle.  That way when the card is in the open position, they can be spread out and it gives a real 3-D look to the cupcakes as they swing in the cute!!  It makes me want a cupcake!! 

Thanks for visiting, have a stamping kind of day!


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Stampin' Up Crazy for Cupcakes, Heritage Farms greetin
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Designer paper, Doodlebug Designs Inc.
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics: Sorry, didn't keep track for this one.  
Dies: MFT Rounded Banner Stax
Miscellaneous: Washi Tape

Kindness Matters

Another "Thank You" card!  I've had a lot to be thankful for lately!  For this one I colored a Magenta butterfly with lots of Copic BG colors (see image below), they blend together beautifully!  I didn't like how the sentiments looked when I stamped them straight, so I curved them on the block so they would stamp alongside the trail of hearts.  I liked that much better.  Silly little stamps kept popping off as I was about to stamp and that about drove me crazy so I ended up putting little cuts along the bottom of the rubber and that made it curve better and stay on the block!!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Magenta butterfly
Cardstock:  White Cougar Opaque
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black and Versafine Black
Copics: See photo below
Miscellaneous: Stampin' Up heart punch, Black Sharpie pen, sequins, Stampin' Up pearls

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a happy day :)
