Peanut Butter Treat

This is the little yummy for my youngest son for Valentine's Day. I saw this idea on SCS you can find it there (Sing n' Stamp) or at her blog www.hemidemisemiquaver@wordpress .com. I fell in love with it and immediately went running to dig out one of my Papertrey boxes that I've been hoarding in my closet. ( I know they would come in handy someday). I used red and gold wrapped Resse's Peanut Butter Cups. I don't have any measurements on the tray I made to slide inside. I just measured the box and took off 1/16 of an inch to compensate for the creases of the box. I arranged the cups all in the right direction so that you could read what was stamped on the PB cups. Have fun putting this together. Link me to any that you create like this. I would love to see your creations.

Valentine Treats

I made this fun treat box for my oldest son. I found this FAB box idea at Melanie Meunchingers blog. You can click on her name in my blog roll to get there. I used my Stampin Up Love Matters set and VersaChalk Ink in Red Magic and Sea Breeze. The ribbon is from Mike's $1 spot. The box is from Papertrey Ink. I stamped the entire back and focal point in the front. The flower brads are Making Memories(?). I stuffed it with Vanilla flavored tootsie rolls (one of his favs) The boxes are SUPER easy to make and are adorable.

Get Well

I needed to build up my card stash and wanted to create clean and simple designs that would work for either men or women. This is one of 3 cards I did only changing the color of the ink, stickles and the sentiment. I think that next time I'll emboss the vanilla background. These were also completed with SC158 in mind. I just flipped the layout to a horizontal format.

Kickstand Cards

I am having such a blast making these kickstand cards. I have never tried them before so these are new territory for me. I made these for the Sketch card challenge (SC158, kickstand are the keywords to search for to see all the FAB creations for this challenge. The first card is made with Papertrey stamps, PP is making memories,the cardstock is from Mike's, the Prima came from my Target and of course my nestabilities and I can't forget the large pink rhinestone from Mike's in the center. The second card is a Bella image. It's RetailFellaBella. The PP is Anna Griffith, the cardstock is from Hobby Lobby. I used my nestabilities to cut the image and scalloped circle out. Then colored with Copics, Zig and Versabrush. The phrase says..
New Boots: $65
New Outfitsto Match Boots: $250
A husband willing to follow you around carrying packages without complaint: PRICELESS!
Hope you like it..

Splitcoast Challenge

Every once in a while I seem to get in a rut style wise with my cards. When I get that way I always turn to splitcoast and their challenges to help me through. These three cards were completed as part of the SC157 sketch challenge. This is my first try at the sketch challenge. I love bling so I had to add a little rhinestone or sticles here and there. If your interested in trying one of these sketch challenges go to the Forums tab at and look for the Splitcoast Challenges section and click on Card Sketches. All the directions are there for you to complete challenges. If you find yourself using the same old colors try the color combinations challenge. Happy Stamping everyone.
