Going Nuts For CDS

 So this is my 3rd and final entry.  The picture didn't turn out that great!!  I can't wait till I get the little photo tent that I bought off of e-bay.  Hopefully it will help me out in get cleaner crisper pictures.  If you follow my blog you will know that I like the balloons for birthday cards!!! They are so much fun.  

I got the idea in my head to hang/dangle something from balloons, and I haven't used the Just Nutty set from CDS yet.  Why not hang the peanuts from the balloons??  Well I made the card and this is how it turned out.   I attached fishing line to the balloons and then the peanuts to the line.

Stamps: Just Nutty, and another stamp of the month set, both from CDS
card stock: Basic grey, Soft Sky - SU, Neenah Solar white
Ink: Versafine
Accessories: cuttlebug, nesties, scallop punch, prisma pencil crayons, blending stumps, baby oil, prismacolor marker in 10& grey, punch out of paper with a scallop edge to make the clouds, fishing line

Enjoy & TFL

True Friend tin

 So I made this for the Design team call over at CDS as well.  It is really funny, I made this last night at about 10 o'clock.  I get the monthly e-mail letter from Splitcoaststampers and on the bottom of the news letter is a older list of projects/tutorials.  And there is the pop-can idea.  I just laughed at myself.  I have saved these cans a couple of years ago, I have made projects off and on with them.

What I was trying to do with this was make it look like a wharf leg with the rope around it.  The Design call is for adding something that dangles to your card or project.  Will I took some wire and bent them to look like fishing hooks, stamped the shells, watercolored them and hung them from the hooks from the rim of the tin.  Are you wondering if that is a real sand dollar.  Yes it is, I found this on a beach either on Cape Breton Island in the Maritimes or in Mexico a couple of years ago.

Stamps: Shore Treasures - CDS
Cardstock: Kraft - SU
Ink: Versafine
Accessories:  stampin up wire from many years ago, brown twine, scallop and oval punch and one real sand dollar

Birthday Wishes w/Crocheted Flowers

 Here is 2 more cards, one that I left as is, and the other one that I added one of my crochet flowers on to.  I like them both equally!!!

I was looking at the "mix it up with color" chart from Stampin-Up and choose one of their color combos.  Tangerine Tango, regal rose, so saffron, and Kiwi Kiss.   When I put the 4 full sheets of colors together, I thought to myself....this is going to make an ugly card!!!  Well I think I pulled it off pretty good.

Stamps: Cause for Celebrations - SU, Always - SU, Mixed Messages - Papertrey
CardStock: Tangerine Tango, regal rose, so saffron, Kiwi Kiss, shimmery white all from SU
Ink: Kiwi Kiss - SU, Regal Rose -SU
