Here is the list of supplies for the card:
Stamp Set: Pun Fun
Ink: Basic Black, Apricot Appeal, Tempting Turquoise and Only Orange.
Paper: Apricot Appeal, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White.

Once the image was dry I inked the whole piece up with Versa Mark. I then used the clear embossing powder over the image and heat set.

My week has been good so far. I have a couple quizzes under my belt, a few chapters have been read and I have even been able to post. The only thing that has not gone my way is a paper on the movie The Wit. It was a tough movie to watch and my paper is just as hard to write.
For the main image I stamped the image in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink on Whipser White (which after stamping I realized that I needed to reink up my pad). I had already inked up the Scalloped Chipboard Frame in Sage Shadow Craft Ink for a different card that did not turn out right so I decided to use it here. After attaching the frame I mounted this on a scrap piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock. I used my Crafters Tool Kit to pierce the outer edge of of the Chocolate Scrap.
I used my new Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. Then decided I needed some words. I stamped the phrase "thanks so much" from Pocket Silhoutes in Sage Shadow directly on my stamped image. I sat back and realized that the phrase was crooked. I then stamped it again on a scrap piece of Whisper White. I used the Word Window Piunch to cut out the phrase. I mounted this on top of my crooked words with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Done!!! Thanks for stopping back today and checking out what I have to offer.

Wow, Wednesday! It has been a busy week so far. School is definitely in full swing.
This card was made with the Teacher's Pet set. I loved this elephant. My sister and I have a joke about elephants so I had to purchase this set.
I purchased the Nestabilities that everyone seems to love a few months ago. I was finally able to play with them a couple weeks ago. I love making 3x3 cards to hang on gift bags. The long scallop rectangle Nestabilities dies were perfect for a 3x3 card.
I punched the card out in one of the new In Colors, Pacific Point, with my Cuttlebug. I then used a scrap piece of Kiwi Kiss Card Stock and also cut punched it with the long rectangle Nestabilities.
I folded the Pacific Point Card Stock in half. Then stamped the Dotted Background Stamp on the Kiwi Kiss Card Stock in Kiwi Kiss.
I stamped the elephant from Teacher's Pet in Basic Gray. I then colored him in with my Going Gray Classic Ink and the Aqua Painter. Once all colored I mounted the stamped image onto a scrap of Tangerine Tango. This was then mounted onto my Pacific Point card with Stampin' Dimensionals. To add a little something to the card I used three Silver Brads.
No words were added so that I can do that to fit the occasion. I am not really sure how much stamping I will get done over the next couple of months so I am trying to do as many all occasions cards as possible.
Thanks for stopping by. See I have been able to post at least semi consistently this week. Hope your week is going as good as mine :)

This card is a little more simple than what I am used to, but I really like the way it turned out.
The card base is 4 1/4 by 4 1/4. I used the new scallop edge punch to add detail to the side of my Riding Hood Red card stock. Then I used my 1/16 hole punch in each scallop.
The butterfly is stamped in Basic Gray on Whisper White. I colored it in with Bashful Blue and Riding Hood Red Classic Ink. I did a light watercolor with the Aqua Painter and then went back over the whole image with a really wet brush to get a softer look. Once dry I added some two way glue and glitter (not that it really shows up).
I layered stamped image on top of Riding Hood Red Card Stock. I then layered this on top of a piece of Whisper White where I stamped my words in Riding Hood Red (the words are also from Dreams du Jour. This Whisper White Card Stock was layered on Bashful Blue Card Stock which was added onto my scalloped Riding Hood Red Card Stock.
When I was done with this I thought it needed something. I pulled out my new Designer Buttons (which I also love) to accessorize. To secure the button I sewed it on with Linen Thread.
Done! A simple card with the main focus being the butterfly.
I hope you all have a great week.
