Thanks So Much

I made this card in one of my SU! monthly stamp night meets. My Niece had called me and needed a card to give to her Teacher for an end of the year gift. So I stamped the Thanks so much on the front of the card and added a Happy Retirement verse on the inside.
The ribbon frame was used on the center of the card and the rick rack was made using the SU! scallop edge punch, which gave the card a cool effect that looks like fabric and really it's paper.

SU!: Sincere Salutations, Priceless
PAPER: SU!: DP Unknown, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
INK: SU!: Close to Coca, Regal Rose
RIBBON: 1/4" Sheer White
TOOLS: SU!: Scallop Edge, Ticket Punch
SUPPLIES: Exacto Knife, Pop Dots

Owl be there

Now I could totally get this cute little guy tattooed on me...(Mom, what do you think about that?) And yet another Forest Friends critter from the Greeting Farm set. Not much to report on this card, pretty simple layout. I hope you have enjoyed viewing all four of my cards I made for the June Card Contest. Maybe I'll win this month, but if I don't it's all good. No matter what I still stress over making four cards anyways. Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to follow my blog!! ~Krysta~

Reach for the Stars

Here is card 2 out of 4 for June's Card Contest. No reason or rhyme behind this card, I just wanted to use my rocket stamp. I used the slice to cut out the shape of the Earth. This is how the paper was printed and just by chance the image turned out really good. Simply put together, I pop dotted the star design with light blue panel and the rocket. The sentiment banner is wavy but hard to tell by the picture, I also raised the chipboard star. You can never use enough pop dots I just love them!!!

INK: Colorbox; Black, Brown. Copic Markers.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Chipboard; Renne Baby Boy.
