"pun"ny valentines

These cards are so "not me." I have girls. They were never into dinosaurs. I only have the No Bones About It set because of scrapping Science Museum field trips and The Field Museum. Well valentines are are over in the box stores and I saw some adorable ones using puns.  It got me thinking what sets did I have in order to create my own. I created these four cards today--

So. Darn. Cute, if I may say. Again, I love how versatile our products are!  The Smoky Slate heart DSP is from the A Little Foxy 6 X 6 paper back. The Labeler Alphabet stamp set allowed me to create all of these fun sayings.  I did happen to use retired Slate twine in the top card, I didn't see the R on the side of my spool, but you could switch in Cucumber, White or Natural twine.

I have some more ideas for non-traditional Valentine cards.  Make sure you stop back!

Dust Bunnies

Wow. It's been some time. A full time day gig does that I guess. Well I attended Onstage in Madison, WI last November and I wrote down "display stamper" under my goals. Well, I finished my projects and only now noticed it was a Friday cut off and Sunday...but the link is open so here goes. I love each one of them!
 I love the versatility of Stampin' Up products--your would never know this was Holiday paper and Halloween twine.
 I have a paper crafting crush on SU Artisan Sharron Lane.  This a play off her color blocking.
One of the best parts of attending Onstage is seeing the Catalog before everyone else!  I knew this set was going on my wish list.  I simply used my grid paper and lined up the stamps then pressed my block on them.  Instant background.  This also uses the new Watercolor Pencils. LOVE!

I love scrap booking.  Its really how I fell into SU products.  I wanted everything to coordinate.  Another item on my instant wish list was the Tasty Treats DSP.  I loved the colors.  Here I used it to create a background with the Big Letters.  She walked in and said I spent way too much time on this...but I don't believe so.  I love when they look through their books!
I sound like a broken record...these egg cartons.  I knew they would be mine!  I spritzed them using our reinkers and rubbing alcohol.  Such great coverage.  My kiddos are 10 and 13...the Easter bunny days are over but they still love some chocolate and a Starbucks gift card, and these are the perfect size!

My kiddos loathe when I make their friends a birthday card.  They really think I'm going to go to Target and buy one.  Nope.  Not happening.  However, lately these little Mini Treat bags have been their go to.  Create a belly band, washi a gift card in, and done! 

thanks for looking.  -Bobbie
