Rock 'n' Roll Card

Supplies: Crushed Curry, Razzelberry, & Mambo Card stock and inks, Matching Razzelberry paper, Rhinestone brad, Extra die cut from the Matchbox die, white grosgrain ribbon, Circle Circus Stamp set
The fold on this card is 5.5 x 10.
Scored at 3 in and again at 7.25
To get the two toned effect on this card you take your stamp and ink it in your lighter ink first. Before you stamp it on your card stock bring your inked stamp to the darker color and roll and rock the sides of your stamp into the darker ink. Stamp your image. I used Crushed Curry and then Razzelberry on my image.

Reverse Embossing Rose Card

Does anyone notice a pattern in my last few entries? Can you tell I love the new colors, especially Razzelberry and Curry. I saw this technique on another blog and loved it!!

Supplies: Big Shot, Manhattan Embossing Folder, Brayer, Razzelberry and Melon Mambo ink, Razzelberry Card stock, and Whisper White and Old Olive Card stock

Run white card stock through your big shot placed inside the embossing folder. Cut the flower out and then turn upside down so raised edges are facing the table. Ink up your brayer first with one color and glide over flower a few times. Clean brayer and then ink with another color and repeat until flower is colored in with only the white edges remaining. Finally, cut out a couple of leaves in card stock, adhere, stamp greeting.

Razzelberry Matchbox

**A new deal of the week will be posted today at 10:00 am. Check out my website for details of the promotion by clicking on my site located to the left under Other Stamping Sites.**

I love the new Razzelberry double-sided designer series paper. This box was made using the matchbox die cut and ever the label on top of the box was die cut from this set. I used the new Mambo Melon paper to coordinate with the Razzelberry and Rich Razzleberry ink for my stamped image.

Petite Dresser Using Matchboxes

Supplies: Designer Paper, Rose Red Cardstock and buttons, Crystal Effects, Matchbox die and Big Shot, Regal Rose ribbon and cardstock, Rose Red Ink Pad

Make three matchboxes using the die through the Big Shot by running three of them through your machine at a time. I used the designer paper for the "drawers" and rose red cardstock for the covers. Assemble your boxes and stack them. Cut the matching cardstock at 2 and 7/8ths width and you can keep the length at 11 1/2. Wrap around your stacked boxes and score for clean lines. Lastly adhere your buttons with crystal effects, wrap with ribbon and use one of your die cuts leftover from your matchbox die to adhere to the top of your "dresser". Stamp whatever image or saying onto your label.

I use these small dressers as doorprizes and put fun goodies in the drawers!
Another fun idea for this project is a barbie dresser for your daughter to play with!!!
