Pack it Up Small Die of the Month

With my crazy love for school supplies, I knew I had to have this backpack die called Pack it Up by Spellbinders.
I haven't even made them into cards - they are so cute I have to show you now!!



 I used several different patterned papers from the Good Life Prints pack for these three.




The Small and Large Die of the Month are membership clubs, however, you can purchase and cancel or purchase and suspend until there is another one you want.
The large die of the month is the most darling clipboard card and accessories you've ever seen.  I will be showing that to you later.




I added tiny magnets under the patterned paper so they would open and close easily.  
The little dies for added pieces inside the backpack or for the card are so stinking cute!  There is an apple, a notebook, glasses and a crayon/pencil.


My favorite part is the zipper detail - look how adorable that is!!!
I may show these again when I get the cards made, or I may turn them into index rings!

Friendship Stamp Bundle Cards

Sometimes you just need a generic 'hi' card, and The Stamp Market has just the die for that!  
It is called the Friendship Stamp Bundle and it has a giant Hi and several sentiments that coordinate. 

 I stamped two card fronts, one in the Jumbo Plaid Background and stenciled one with the Double Dot Stencil.  I cut them both with the Color Block Die and then was able to create two cards with them.

Supplies include Poppies Bundle, Color Block DieJumbo Plaid BackgroundDouble Dot Stencil, and the new Blender Brushes.  I added a few of the new Clear Droplets too - do you have these yet?  I love them!!!

Everyday Doodles Coffee Card

I love the images in this Everyday Doodles set!  
For this card, I played with just the coffee cup and filled it in with solid ink colors from Altenew instead of pencils or markers.  
I started at the Top with Vineyard Berry, Orange Cream, Sunray, Forest Glades and Mountain Mist.

The coffee and latte words are from a Honey Bee Stamps set called Perfect Blend.

This month it is called Birthday Wishes Marci.  She is adorable!  The kit comes with deeply etched red rubber stamps and coordinating dies.  This month you get a special additional set of birthday balloon number dies as an added bonus.

I used the balloon dies in an ombre fashion for the background and the La-La Land Oval Stitched Dies.
The animals are colored with Copic markers:
Poodle: C3, C1, C00
Hamster: E43, E41, R20
Panda: W9, W7, W5, W0, W00

Hippo: N5, N3, N!, N0, R00

Chihuahua: YR23, Y21, Y0000, R00

Bear: E17, E15, E13, E11




Little Birthday Marci is on a card with a gift box.  She is included as a tutorial for subscribers to the monthly kit.
You must order by August 29th to receive this kit.

It is also La-La Land's 5th birthday and they are having a big celebration on their Facebook page if you would like to join in on the fun.
