Valentine Sock Cupcake using Docrafts Gorjuss Collector

Happy Monday everyone! It's Rosie here today to share details on the sock cupcake I made for the current ANYTHING GOES challenge on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog! To enter our current challenge just click on the link on the right side bar to take you to the challenge post. Remember, you can play along using any stamp in your stash!
Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I decided to make a sock cupcake as a teacher gift. I used a stamp from one of my favorite stamp companies called Docrafts Gorjuss Collector Mini Stamp. I stamped her on Cryogen White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored her with Copics. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Lawn Cut to make the "be mine" tag. To make the "cupcake", you just roll the sock up from the toe, put a rubber band around the bottom, and then fluff up the side edges. You can add a red pom-pom to the top for a cherry also if you want.
 Supplies from 7 Kids College Fund Store:
Here it is all wrapped up. I found the little cup holder, heart pick, foam heart stickers, and cellophane baggie in the Valentine section of Walmart. 
Now don't forget to play along with us so you can win a $20 Gift Certificate to the store. 
Have a great rest of the week my friends!

Because Today's Your Day!

 Just Because I love sharing with you all these adorable little Gorjuss mini girls!  Tammy Louise here today with you all on the 7 Kids College Fund blog.  The weather outside is still chilli but when I sit down and create a project with these mini stamps, I can't resist using warm and springy colors.  They bring the spring out in me! 

Her name is "Lost Heart".  I'm sure by the way she's hugging her little bear, the likely reason for the name is because she holds him so close to her heart!  These little lovelies are so easy and fun to color up!  Their hair has loads of movement and while there is less skin tone showing, the striped socks and curled in toes make up for it! Find your favorite in the store today and color one up yourself!  I'm sure you'll love her afterwards! 

She's colored with Copics and I created with a few other products you can find in the store such as the chipboard steampunk design with gears from Wycinanka, the Majestic Frame Die from the LDRS Creative spot in the store and Ranger Distress Ink and Copics too! 

We've just begun another challenge with the Love theme, so be sure to join in on the fun and a chance to win $20.00 of product from the store!!  See you there!

Flutter Valentine

Oh My it is the weekend and finally warm weather for us and it is melting the snow!!  We have new dies in our store and of course I have to use them, its like candy!

The front of my card has a Memory Box Die that pops up the butterflies for a 3D efffect.  You can color them or put pearls on them and a colored paper backing helps show off their 3D effect.

The Inside of the card features Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart.  It is huge and uses a 6x6 paper to make the heart and then you fold it into this nice gift card or note holder. The tag and some words are part of the die set.  I fell in love with this one, I can make gift card holders anytime and I am making my son's class their Valentine cards using this die.

So here is a fun easy to assemble card for you to make, all the materials are linked above.

DON'T FORGET ABOUT ENTERING OUR CHALLENGE #4 HERE, we would love to see what you create AND you can win $$ to our store!

Have a great day!

Nature Sketchbook Napkin Fold Cold

Hello everyone, happy Tuesday! 
I love Graphic 45 papers and since I just received the Nature Sketchbook collection, wanted to do a project showcasing the paper.   I thought this napkin fold card would show off one of the papers.  The base is a sheet of 12x12 bazzill paper covered with the Wildflower Bouquet from the collection.  Used a chipboard piece to complete the belly band closure.

When the belly band is removed, the card unfolds into this beautiful, colorful card.  The middle portion and the belly band are the back of the Wildflower Bouquet paper with one of the stickers and a dragon fly cut from the matching 6x6 papers.  The words are also from the sticker sheet; used 6x6 sheets for die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure and stop by 7 Kids College Fund store to see this paper and many more beautiful items.  Keep crafting.  Sandy
