Good Fortune

Today I have a card that I made for my son's girlfriend who was laid off a month or so ago - but has already found a wonderful job as a job placement counselor at a college in West Virginia.  She is a go-getter who never lets bad things get her down and I wanted to let her know how proud I am of her.
I love these fun Fortune Cookie dies and Good Fortune sentiment stamps from Ellen Hutson and they were perfect for me to get all these messages to Sunny in one card!   I copied the college logo from her FB page that she had posted when she got the job.

I'm linking my card to:

Paper:  Rustic Cream - PTI, Origami Paper

Coffee Anyone?

The Card Concept has a fun challenge with a theme that just about everyone loves - Coffee.  
I used a cool stamp set from Art Impressions called Coffee Keeper - that includes the cup with the cover and sleeve as well as some sentiments and steam curls. 
It comes with instructions on how to fold the paper, stamp images, what to paper piece  and where to cut the slot so a gift card can be inserted under the flap.
The stamp set instructions leaves the flap loose like this - 
 But I added a clip and the word 'open' stamped on a punched circle to hold the flap closed (see 1st pic above!) - that pleased my asthetic sense better than leaving it open a bit!
Here's a close up of the sentiment stampings on the sleeve where you check off the boxes that you want - I know it's a little harder to read stamped on the digital paper that I used - but I thought it looked more like the corrugated cardboard that they use IRL!  All the patterned papers I used here are digital from the Brown Grunge Texture set from All About Scrapping Etsy Shop - I won them from a challenge I linked a card to a few months ago and I just love them!
I did mount the panel to a white card base so I could write whatever I wanted inside depending on why I was giving a gift card to someone - birthday, thank you etc.  My style is clean and layering.

WMS April Sneak Peek - Day 1 - My Kind of Guy

Welcome to the first day of Sneak Peeks for the Waltzingmouse  April Release coming up on Thursday 4/18/13.  Today we are showcasing a wonderfully 'British flavor' masculine set called My Kind of Guy. This set is packed with 23 stamps - including sentiments, images and design elements -  I'll show you a few of them here!

For my first project I made a fun card using two of the design strip stamps,  the monocled face image and two of the sentiments.  I adhered a crystal rhinestone inside the monocle for just a touch of shimmer!

I slipped a tag inside the kraft envelope but you could also slip in a gift card!
I stamped another sentiment and the small derby hat from this set on the tag.
The design stamp I used on my card base above made me think of a crown - so I made these fun wraps for these giant corn muffins I purchased at Stop and Shop.  (I didn't want to use frosted cupcakes as I knew I'd get the frosting all over the wraps and my fingers!)  These whopper muffins are 600 calories each!!  The crown is stamped on an 11" strip just to give you an idea of how big they are!

I stamped several of the sentiments from this set on kraft card stock, punched them with the SU Keytag punch and adhered them on the 'crowns' with foam tape.  I gold embossed the crown above on black card stock
 This one is gold embossed on kraft card stock.
And this one is stamped in black ink on kraft card stock.  Don't you love the sentiments?!
So - there are my projects for today -  Hope to see you tomorrow for Day 2 of the WMS sneak peeks!
Now let's check out what the rest of the Design Team has created using this wonderful masculine set!
