Happy Bday to Jace

My design team terms have all ended and I'm going to take a break for a while and stamp purely for fun. Here's my first for fun project. I used the Lots of Bots set from SU. I started with a gable green base, layered with pumpkin pie and basic grey dp. The nuts and bolts are stamped with brilliant blue stamped on gable green and layered with brilliant blue and pumpkin pie. I added some screw brads for fun. A birthday card HAS to have a ribbon right? So, I added pumpkin pie to mine. The robot is cut with a spellbinders label die.

The boss' bday and late father's day

My boss likes coffee and she's always cold, so I made her a coffee themed fleece tie blanket. This is the card I made to go with it. I used a rose colored paper I've had forever - it may or may not be Bazzill. The flowers are paper studio and just silk flowers with a dew drop in the center. The stamps are flourishes, which I had to redo 4 times because I had a five year old trying to "help" me. The dp is from Me and My Big Ideas.

My ex-husband's grandma recently moved into a nursing home. He got a lot of her recipes. So, my daughter came up with the idea of making him a recipe box. He has this print hanging in his dining room. So, I suggested printing a bunch of french pictures and doing a collage with this as the focal point. I think it turned out pretty well.
The card is made with the same print and is very simple. I just used a nestability and some dots. The smaller black frame is handcut, because nestabilities still hasn't granted my wish and made the in between sizes that I need for this shape! C'mon guys - get to it. I promise to be first in line to buy them!
