Part 3 - Things I've made and not yet shown

Here I am, back again with more things that I have yet to post here.  Sad thing is, I will still have more to show after this. *blush*

Anyway, here's the first

This was a case from here, with a few minor changes - I used Fox and Friends from the current Autumn/Winter Mini as I didn't have Cheep Talk when I made this card.  I also decided to cover the whole front of the card with patterned paper.  I won't tell you how pieces of paper I wasted until I realised that the easiest way to achieve this look was to use Dotto to hold the cardstock and patterned paper together, run it through the BS and, remove the paper, THEN trim it to size.  I know, DUH, right!

Supplies Used:  Stampin' Up unless noted otherwise
Stamps:  Fox & Friends, Trendy Trees
Ink:  Pacific Point
Cardstock:  Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, So Saffron, Good Morning Sunshine DSP
Accessories:  Movers & Shapers Curly Label Bigz Die, Big Shot, Word Window Punch, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon

This was supposed to be a case from pg 197 of the US 09/10 catalogue.  The patterned paper is from the Patterns Pack II DSP (Level 1 Hostess) in Garden Green.  The 'thanks' was diecut from Garden Green cardstock, using the Timeless Type Alphabet.  Turns out this is slightly larger than the Many Thanks sizzlet SU used in their sample, which messed up the whole design.  I made the flower by punching 3 scalloped circles from Very Vanilla and scrunching them up really, really well.  By doing this, you break the fibres in the paper, allowing you to be able to pull them apart, it also give them a kind of faux suede look.  A brad in the middle holds them all together and the edges have been distressed using Tea Dye Duo from PaperTrey Ink.

Supplies:  Stampin' Up! unless noted otherwise
Stamps:  None
Ink:  Tea Dye Duo (PaperTrey Ink)
Cardstock:  Kraft, Garden Green, Very Vanilla, Pattern Prints II DSP
Accessories:  Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Medium Sizzlet Die, Little Leaves Sizzlet Die, Big Shot, Brad, Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Corner Rounder, Crafter's Tool Kit

Last one for tonight

This set uses the cutest little set from Sassafrass Lass.  Can't remember the name of it but I loved the fact that the flower is almost the same as one featured in the Good Morning Sunshine DSP.  I inked it up using my Pink Passion and Kiwi Kiss markers (which I made up myself from a tutorial I found here).

Supplies:  Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
