Share the Love

This is another card that I found somewhere (will update when I find it again!) that I cased and it was very clean and simple to do.

I changed it up a bit by putting an 8x4" piece of white cardstock in backwards so that the card opening is from the inside, rather than the outside.  I liked that better than a simple piece of white cardstock which really doesn't give one anywhere to write!

Anyway, the phone booth card is from Artfully Sent, one of our wonderful Cricut cartridges.

The phone and "hello" are from the Share the Love stamp set (only available this month, $7 of which goes to the Operation Smile charity).

Products Used:

Share the Love stamp set
White cardstock cut at 8x4, scored at 4", attached so that opening is towards the inside

Have a wonderful day!

I Donut Know What I'd Do Without You


This card was totally cased/inspired from here, by a fellow consultant Lori Scott using the Charlotte papers - loved it!

Stamp 3 donuts on the white (leave about an inch or so at the bottom of the paper (will be using to stamp the sentiment on) - white (5-1/2x4-1/4"), using Memento Black ink.

Rub Sorbet ink and Champagne ink into the 'icing' of donut, using sponges, leave one white - fussy cut out - then punch out centre with 1/2" circle punch

Stamp 3 donuts onto Kraft paper, punch out with 1-3/4" circle punch.

Colour 'sprinkles' with ShinHan markers YR24, B262, R11

Stamp sentiment on back and bottom of white piece and cut at 1" - dovetail end
Attach pieces to card base, add silver shimmer trim and foam tape one of the donuts on top.

This is the stamp set used, Treats of Friendship, love it!

Have a marvelous day!
