Priceless Birthday Card

I told you I had quite a few birthdays this month. I made this card for my sister-in-law. I have to say Priceless is my favorite stamp set. The swirls are great for backgrounds. It easily makes very nice cards/papercrafts.

This is the recipe for the card and all items were Stampin' Up!.

Cardstock: Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, and Handsome Hunter
Stamp Set: Priceless
Stamp Pads: Handsome Hunter and Ruby Red
Accessories: Circle Scallop Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, and 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Straight Scallop Punch
Not Stampin" Up! Stickles Frosted Lace
I love this card!!

Lovely as a Tree Masculine Card Class

These are the cards I have come up with for my masculine card class. Almost all of the cards we tend to make they are more for the feminine side. That is the reason I wanted to have this class. I am sure we all have men or boys in our lives that we need to send cards to.

I used Stampin' Up! materials, of course. I used designer paper (Windsor Knot and Prestwick) that looked more masculine in color. I picked the Lovely as a Tree stamp set because it is so versatile. The cardstock I used (Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, So Saffron, Sage Shadow,and Basic Gray)matches the designer paper.

Now I need to get this class scheduled and figure out how much to charge. I can honestly say trying to figure out how much to charge can be very difficult for me.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Cutie Pie Backpack

Different people were making this cute little backback and I wanted to make one also. I downloaded the template for it and unfortunately I can't remember where I got it at. If any of you know whose blog this was from please let me know and I will give them the credit. I made this for my neice that is going to be 13. I put Reeses peanut butter cups in the main section and money will be put in the little front pocket. I hope you are inspired from seeing this. I was thrilled with how this turned out in the end.
I used Stampin' Up! products to make this. Here is what I used:

Cardstock: Rose Red and Cutie Pie DSP (retired)
Accessories: Scallop Punch, Sizzix Buttons Die, and Rhinestone Brad Circle Ice and Fire
Once again please take the time to leave a comment. I really enjoy knowing what you think.
