Regatta Pizza Box and Cards

Over the past few weeks, I have been preparing many projects using the Regatta Collection - available till the end of April. I haven't shared any before today, as I created them to share with fellow consultants at a Fun Day today. 
The first project I want to share with you is a Pizza Box & Gift cards.

I enjoyed making this set of gift cards and a box to hold them. I was inspired by a project by Vicki Wizniuk for the box. My friend Jacquie & I designed the little gift cards, made using the My Anchor (C1642) Stamp Set and the coordinating My Anchor (Z3202) Thin Cuts. They were so much fun to make and would make a great gift.

Come back again soon and see what else I have created from the Regatta collection.

Balloon Animal Sock Monkey

Check out this cute sock Monkey birthday card I made using the Balloon Animals Stamp Set (S1602). My inspiration came from Nancy Brown.
I used Kraft, Cranberry & White Cardstock; Desert Sand, Champagne & Cranberry Stamp Pads; Carmine ShinHan Marker & Black Pen. It was so easy to make and I am happy with the result.

Come back again soon and see what else I have created and what is new.

Balloon Animals

The February Stamp of the Month is gorgeous! Who doesn't love some Balloon Animals? Check out some of the projects I have created using this stamp set!
This layout is based on the one on page 42 of the Seasonal Expressions showcasing the stamp set. I used the Kaleidoscope paper pack with Whisper, White Daisy & Lagoon cardstock, Eggplant, Lagoon, Saffron, Poppy & Pear Exclusive Inks stamp pads to stamp the Balloon Animals and scraps of cardstock in the same colours for the flags. The Whisper Extra Thick Twine added the finish I wanted on the flags and balloons. The title was stamped using the Block Uppercase Stamp Set (B1513). 

The above card is also based on the one on page 42 in the Seasonal Expressions. I just used scraps of paper I had close by.  For the card below, I also used the Balloon Animals stamp set along with Glacier, Desert Sand and Lagoon Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads. The background was created using shaving cream and re-inkers.(Thanks to Cate Davis for teaching me how to do this.)

Come back again soon and see what else I have been creating and what's new.
