Sizzix Ball Pop-Up Card

My son's Spring Select soccer season has come to a close, so I wanted to make a nice thank you card for the coach. They had a great close to the season by taking 3rd place at the Davis World Cup of Soccer last weekend. I decided to use the new ball pop-up sizzix die and make it into a soccer ball. This was my first time using this pop-up die.

Kid's camp samples

Each year our local elementary school has an auction to raise funds for the school. Four of the teachers there hired me to do a stamp camp with the kids. The kids there were first and second graders, both boys and girls. There were 7 projects in all and below are a few of the projects that we did yesterday.
Above is a fold-out album and little suitcase that it will fit in. The kids actually assembled their own album. (I pre-made the little suitcases for them, and they decorated them.)

Above are hanging notepad holders. They could decorate them however they wanted. I also gave them jewels, buttons, and shells to use.

Above is a frame that the kids were able to decorate by stamping, or adding any kind of embellishment that they wanted.

The other projects not pictured here were a bookmark, pencil cup, and pencil box. It is always fun to hold this camp, and the kids were great! Their creations were beautiful and original.

Simple Flower

I made this card using the Top Note die and Simple Flower embosslit, both exclusive to Stampin' Up! By using paper with a white core with the embosslit, you can lightly sand it and get the amazing texture and white outline.

Father's Day Card

This is the card I used for our monthly demonstrator stamp 'n chat. I finally used my circle scissors plus to make the circles, and then cut them in half. I also used my serif essentials sizzix alphabet die for the large D, and my naturally serif sizzlit decorative strip die for the smaller A and D. The colors are Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, and So Saffron. A simple, fun Father's Day card!

Watercolor Re-inker Card #2

Here is another sample of the watercolor re-inker technique. This lavender rose is so pretty. I plan to make a lot of these roses to use on cards and try all sorts of color combinations.

Cupcake Basket

This is a cute little cupcake basket. It would be great to use as a party favor to hold candies and goodies.

Happy May Day!

Even though it is raining today, it is still a happy May day!
The samples shown here are what I will be doing with the families at the Ronald McDonald House tomorrow when I go. I thought these would be fun and easy gifts to make for Mother's day or whatever.
