Storybook Friends Cards & Candy Box

I'm so far behind on my work.  I've been playing the role of math teacher for my son all summer long, and that has left me with very little time for my Stampin' Up! business.  I'm happy to say that we're finished with his math class, and he did a great job!  I'm so proud of him!
One of the things I'm VERY far behind with is posting the last four July projects at Craft Project Central.  All four projects are wonderful, and I've posted all four here today.  I hope you enjoy them. 

I think this card set is so adorable!  I didn't think I needed this stamp set, and now I think I do!  This cute project is designed by Kim Score.

This fun gift box with four greeting cards and envelopes also includes a special chocolate treat in a separate compartment! This project makes a great and inexpensive gift for those that like to send out cards and also like chocolate. The tutorial includes measurements for three different box sizes, including A2 size cards with six nuggets, note cards with five nuggets, and 3" x 3" gift cards with three nuggets!

My Hubby's Birthday Card

My husband's birthday was last weekend, and this is the card that I made for him.  I love the new designer paper I used called, Natural Composition Specialty DSP (p. 162).  If you look closely at the upper left corner, you can see that the pattern on the DSP is glossy.  I really like it!  I once again used the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (p. 134) and the Bitty Banners Framelits (p. 191).  If you've seen my last few posts, you've noticed that I've used this set and framelits A LOT!  I also used one of my favorite sets, Established Elegance (p. 125).  I think the typewriter in this set is great for a masculine card, among other types of projects.  The button is from the new Naturals Designer Buttons (p. 176), and I put it on with a Glue Dot (p. 177)  It's a little hard to see, but I put a Stampin' Dimensional (p. 177) on the middle back of the banner to make it look like it's waving in the breeze.  I attached the ends of the banner with SNAIL Adhesive (p. 177).

Stamps:  Established Elegance & Itty Bitty Banners

Ink:  Early Espresso and Midnight Muse Classic ink pads

Paper:  Early Espresso, Midnight Muse, & Crumb Cake card stock; Natural Composition Specialty DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot die-cutting machine, Bitty Banners Framelits, Naturals Designer Buttons, Stampin' Dimensionals, & Glue Dots

Reminder:  I have one free July subscription that I can give away, and one lucky person can win it!  Comment on any or all posts dated July 10 - 16th and get your name put into the hat.  You'll get your name put into the hat for each comment you make (a limit of one comment per post).  So, keep coming back to my blog for the next week and comment.  The more comments, the better your chances at winning!  I'll draw the winner on Tuesday, July 17 and announce the winner that day.  Good Luck!

Happy Friday, everyone!  Are you ready for the weekend!  I sure am!  I've got another card to share with you today, and I used the monthly Creating Pretty Cards Sketch at Craft Project Central.  It's CPC13.

This is the first card I've made with the new set from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, Summer Silhouettes (p. 82)This set is so much fun to play with!  I know I'm going to use it a lot!  I also used the new Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack (p. 181) to make the paper-pierced border around the flower piece.  It really adds a special touch to the card.  I also used the new Fancy Fan Impressions Folder (p. 189) on the Daffodil Delight layer.  The greeting was stamped with the new Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (p. 134) and die-cut with the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits Dies (p. 191).  The little flower on the banner is a new embellishment as well.  They're called In Color Dahlias (p. 175).  I attached it on with a glue dot.

Ink:  Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, & Pumpkin Pie Classic ink pads
