Birthday Cards

This Birthday Card is made with Pick a Petal stamp set and Cottage Wall designer paper series.
This birthday card is made with the Medallion Stamp, "Happy Birthday" comes from the Block Party stamp set and the green and yellow ribbon is from Stampin' Up, the brown ribbon is from a craft store.

Here's the ribbon flower I made. The lady bug is made from Pick a Petal stamp set (the wings are a petal), two circles; the larger circle is the 1 3/8" punch and the smaller circle is 3/4" punch. I just hand cut the antenna's. I like the simple design and it was a lot of fun to make.

Ribbon Flower

This is the flower I made after I received my Success book from Stampin' Up. I loved the way their flower turned out and thought I should give it a try. I used the Riding Hood Red grosgrain ribbon with the white strip running down the middle. The leaves of the flower are from Pick a Petal and I used the Old Olive classic stamp pad. I had so much fun making the flower and it was really easy.

Motivation for my Volleyball Girls

I am the JV Volleyball coach and last Saturday we had our tournament. For every game we do motivation, which is just something for the girls to have fun with and get their teammates pumped up for the game. As the coach I did the tournament because it was the last couple games of the season. The mummies are snickers and I wrapped gauze around them after I glued on googly eyes. The label says "Let's 'wrap' up a great season and send them crying home to their 'mummies." I really enjoyed making the mummies and also had a great season, the girls pulled off two big wins to be conference champs.

3x3 Boxes & Note cards

These are the cards that go in one of the boxes. I used coordinating paper for the cards and box. I used Rainbow Sherbet for these cards. I love the blue, green, and orange combo.
For the other set of cards I used the Fall Flowers designers series paper.

This is the box and cards together.

Again, the box and cards together.
The boxes with cards are my "thank you" to the hostess of the Stampin' Up parties.
The paper and stamps used are from Stampin' Up.
Each card is 3x3 and the box measures about 3.5 x 2.25, I got the template from Splitcoaststampers.com.
Splitcoaststampers web page is a great resource for Stampin' Up demonstrators or anyone interested in stamping and paper crafts. The web page has great ideas and techniques.

November Stampin' Up card

Rich Razzleberry & Crushed Curry classic ink pads.

The size of the card is 5 x 5.

I got the Idea from Splitcoaststampers.com.
I decided to use different colors and go with a nontraditional look. I love the color scheme.
