This project is inspired by Sam at Pootles Papercraft. She has a great tutorial on her website here this is my version using the new 6x6 Cherry on Top DSP paperstack. I made no changes in the box design. I did decorate a little differently. I used the Sprinkles of Life Ronald McDonald House charity stamp set. It's one of my ver favorites from the new catalog. It's so versatile, has a matching punch AND benefits RMHC! I used the triple banner punch (which really can easily make four sizes). I cut my white card at 3/4" and the cucumber crush at 1". The catalog stars you can make 1", 1 1/2, and 2" banner pieces. There are additional marks on the base to make a 3/4" banner. Bonus! The tiny little flowers are punched with the tree builder punch and the centers are rhinestone basic jewels. The box is closed just as Sam closed hers in her video with a 1/4" hole punch on the top piece that goes over a candy dot brad base. Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by.

I absolutely fell in love with the Just Kidding stamp set when it was released. This is the first opportunity I've had to use it. I did use a few retired products and some new product as well. The background stamp called Something Lacy has been retired. Too bad, it's so pretty. I stamped tone on tone using wisteria wonder. I paired it with a piece of smokey slate DSP from the newly renovated 12x12 DSP paper stack. Both the sentiment and focal image are from Just Kidding. I used the retired Word Bubble framelits and Just Saying stamp for the word bubble outline and stamped it on melon mambo. For the inside I utilized Just Kidding and One Tag Fits All (retired). I gave it a little sparkle with dazzling details glitter glue for the centers of the background flowers. Hope this inspires you today. Thanks for stopping by.

This is a card I made for one of my husband's co-workers. I made two of them for her to use. The main focal point is from a recently retired stamp set called Cheerful Critters. I love this set. It makes these cards so much fun. Card stock is mint macaron with the DSP from Cherry on Top. Both are new product from the 2016-2016 SU catalog. The balloons on the card are from the May Paper Pumpkin kit. I love the stamps we receive each month which are exclusive to the kit. I've used this particular set on several different projects since I received it. Other stamps used were from Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Pictagram Punches and A Round Array (also recently retired). You can recreate this card with whatever sentiment stamps you have on hand. I added a few pearl basic jewels in the smaller flower centers and punched an artisan label in dazzling diamonds glimmer Paper. I stamped an envelope to match. The tiniest flower on the bunny is punched from the tree builder punch. Other colors on this card are watermelon wonder, Bermuda bay, smokey slate,and soft sky. I hope Marilyn loves them and the recipients do as well. I know I do.
