Gift Sets

Since it's been so cold this week I have had some extra time to stay home and stamp! I have a few projects to show you that I did last night and then finished up this morning!
This first tin and cards are a set I made to donate to a friend this is having a silent auction for Heart & Stroke. She's having a fundraiser while I am away in Florida and I wanted to somehow contribute. I hope that she likes it! I used the Stampendous Bees and watercoloured them in Soft Subtles. The Designer Paper is by Imaginisce and it's called For Peep's Sake.

These next few pictures are of a set similar to the ones that Sharon from No Time To Stamp? had created! She shared the template for the little box on her blog. Be sure to check it out!!

This first set is using Embrace Life with Ginger Blossom DP. I used Ruby Red, Groovy Guava and Very Vanilla cardstocks. The flowers were watercoloured with an aqua painter and re-inkers in Guava and Ruby Red. Then I added my fave embellishment....Liquid Pearls!

For this next set I used Bronc Buster and Wanted. I loved the Sage Shadow and Choc Chip together so I went with that again. Sponging the Sage Shadow with Creamy Caramel. The Very Vanilla is sponged with Creamy Caramel and then Choc Chip. The images are stamped with Choc Chip Craft and Clear Embossed. I was excited to use the star punches!

Well that's all I have for now.
I also need to apologize in advance to my beloved OILERS....I'm going to the game tonight....and lately....every time I go....we lose....lol....so sorry OILERS! We need a win!
Thanks for stopping by today!
