Cute Koala

I finally got my Cute Koala stamp set! 
Couldn't wait to try a card with it.  This stamp set is not shown in our US Annual Inspirations Catalog or our Seasonal Expressions but it is available.  You can find it here on my website.

There are several stamps that are available that aren't pictured in any of the Catalogs.  These were designed for our consultants down under, In Australia and New Zealand.  So glad they are allowing us to order them too!

The cardstock colors are Pear, Canary and Colonial White.  The pattern paper is from our Brushed collection.

I colored it using our ShinHan Markers in the following colors:  Tender Pink, Barely Beige, Clay, Mahogany, Leaf green and used the Colorless Blender.
It was stamped in Cocoa Ink.
The You're Special is from our March Stamp of the Month, Choose Happy.
Ribbon is Chiffon ribbon I had in my stash.

If you have an questions let me know.

Long Card in Box

I found this fun modification to a Card in a Box on a Facebook Group I belong too.
The original one was done by a gal named Deborah Johnson-Baker and I loved the little legs on the box.
She did not post a template but shared a photo of a similiar box she saw on SVGcuts.
Another gal posted directions to making the box without the feet and I figured it out from there.
No machine was used to cut the Slate base for this box, the feet where hand cut.
This will fold flat and go into a A2 size envelope.
On the back there is cardstock for your message.

I used CTMH Cardstock in the following colors:  Slate, Thistle, Olive and Colonial White.
I have to say I love the color combination.
The patterned paper is from Scaredy Cat, funny doesn't look Halloween.. 
I used the following CTMH Cricut Cartridges:  Art Philosophy and Artbooking.
The stamp used was C1607 Someone Special

I hope you like this one, it's one of my favorites!

A Happy Hello

The February Stamp of the Month is just as cute as can be.  A Happy Hello has several spring flowers to decorate your cards and layouts.

Here it is pared with Hopscotch papers, yes I have used that paper over and over, love it!
The card base is Pixie and the layering piece is Smoothie. The stamping was done on Colonial white with Pixie, Smoothie and Flaxen inks.  I used both types of 3-D Foam tapes for this project, regular and thin.
Looks like Spring to me!

The stamp of the month is only available during the month of February and this great paper will retire at the end of March.  So order now.
