Pizza anyone?

i have
been playing with mini pizza boxes and cards today. Again, one o the super hinges about paper crafting is that the possibilities are only limited to your imagination. I have made 2 different ones in contrasting color families. 
Here's the details on the box:
1 sheet paper 6x11
Score longways on 1 and 5
Score sideways on 1,5,6 and 10
At the intersections of the scores cut on both sides so the box will fold.
Tape the box together and decorate the outside. Box measures 4x4 and the cards I side are 3 1/2 x3
There are several videos on YouTube that show you step by step but I can't load them due to computer issues.
Here are my samples
See you Monday! Happy stamping

Dry embossing with ink

I am so in love with the way this card turned out! I took the dotted Swiss embossing folder and inked one side and then ran it through the cuttlebug. I then re-inked with another color and then kept going until I achieved the look I was going  for. After 4 colors sky blue , pear pizazz ,blushing bride, and summer star fruit I was happy. The butterfly is one that I made yesterday sponging different colors together. The sentiment is from trust God which is quickly going to be my  favorite go to set!

Sponged sweetness

Finally I Ok so here is the step by step of how I made my card today. I was having so much fun getting lost in sponges and paper I almost forgot about dinner :))I started with a plain piece of whisper white card stock cut 3 3/4 x5 I used blossom punch to cut out flower. 
Next I used blushing bride , soft sky and pear pizazz ink with sponges to ink the paper up. Finally I mounted my sponged paper onto sky blue and then onto a blushing bride card base.  I then took a flower that I punched and sponged earlier today and cut the center petals out of top and bottom to make the butterfly. Add a few stickles and voila !! A beautiful card.

Sympathetic but NOT drab

In making a sympathy card for a friend tonight, I relished in the fact that it turned out as bright an beautiful as she is! I realized that the sympathy cards. We usually make are more neutrals but they DON'T have to be. Our sympathy is expressed by our action to show support  and Caring enough to be
There if needed. Just food for thought happy stamping

Business cards and gift cards

Ok so today I was making small cards to stick my business cards into so I could pass them out to new people I meet. I was looking at the shape and size of it and it reminded me of the department store gift tags that used to come in boxes for birthdays and Christmas. At 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 they are perfect for using up scrap paper. I think I am going to incorporate some of these into the wrapping that I do next. Happy stamping!
