A bunch of good stuff....

Good Monday Afternoon!
It's Victoria Day here in Canada so the family is all home today. We've each been doing our own things and I've gotten so much done! Love when that happens!
Today on SCS is the Try A New Technique Challenge. Now this is one I've done before for a teacher who was expecting a baby. I made a bag like this below with some little cards to go inside.
I hadn't used the Summer Picnic DP(well at least not this pattern) lately and thought this was a perfect time to pull it out. I thought about putting some little chocolates inside the bag but then Brian may have been upset if I gave them away....lol....so I went with 2 small 4x4 cards. Pretty simple and straightforward.
Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Much Appreciated; Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White and Summer Picnic DP; Accessories: Circle Punch, Circle Nesties, Dimensionals, Slit Punch, Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Crop A Dile
Yesterday I worked on a Father's Day card using the Jack Handyman from CC Designs at All That Scraps. I also used the Happy Thoughts from Verve Visual for the sentiment. I bought these screw brads at a LSS last month and had forgotten about them :(

Stamps: CC Designs, Verve Visual: Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Choc Chip, WW and White Out DP; Inks: Adirondack Black, Choc chip, Brocade Blue; Accessories: Copic Markers, Screw Brads, 5/8" Brocade Blue Ribbon

I've admired Michelle Wooderson for sometime now and how she can mass produce such wonderful cards. Well these cards below are inspired by her!!! I've totally CASED her idea. I did change the Designer Paper, Stamps and CS colours. The basic idea is hers though. Last night I stamped a bunch of cupcakes and sat down to colour them while watching Desperate Housewives...lol This morning I put it all together.


Stamps: Hero Arts Cupcakes; Cardstock: PTI White, Bashful Blue, Real Red, 3BugsInARug DP; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Copic Markers, Clear Stardust Pun, White Brads, Circle and Rectangle Nesties, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!

It's been very productive but I still have more time and more stuff to stamp!

Wow you have been a busy bee. I just love Mishes blog alos. I cased one of her sketches and I always have done mass producting. They make great sets to have on hand for gifts or to grab and send a quick card out. Of course I love that bag and adorable cards you made. Perfect for a teacher. Great father's day card. Cute stamp. Ooohhh love those cupcake cards. I need to try the postage stamp layout. Love all the diffrent sentiments you have. So adorable and I like that 3Bug paper. :)
