International Art & Soul #27

Good Morning Friends,

I love International Art & Soul design team.  We are just a bunch of laid back women who love creating things.  There is no pressure, just fun.  Each of the design team sisters gets to choose a few of the themes for the year.  This is one of the themes that I came up with "Use Your Stuff."  I chose it because I have soooo much stuff!

I made this card for my sister for her birthday, she is a fantastic baker, she makes the most delicious cakes!  I saw this DWCV Stack called "Nana's Kitchen" and bought it thinking I would make something for two years ago....

I don't know if you can see it, but down on the bottom of the card is a "rub on" remember rub ons?  I think they came and went very quickly!

I have had the sentiment above for many years, finally found the right card to use it on.

I used two different stamped sentiments on the back.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

DLART February Linky Challenge - ATG
C.R.A.F.T challenge - Mother's Day/Female
Seize the Birthday - Coffee or Tea (tea pots on background paper)
Always Happy Birthday - CAS

Please stop by  International Art & Soul to see what my design team sisters have made and then play along with us!  No pressure, just fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I appreciate all of your comments!

Candy Store Bear's Treat Box

Good Morning,

Did you have a good weekend?  I had the chance to get into my craft room and make some treat boxes.  I originally was just going to make one for my great -niece but I decided to make one for my sister who likes bears.

See the little bear baker?  So cute!

Here are both of them.  I made a few changes to the svg file.  I cut the candy sign out three times and glued it all together to make it stronger.  I added plastic to the windows and I cut out cardboard and put it at the bottom to make it stronger.

Here is the side view of the window with plastic in it.

Here is the inside with some tootsie roll treats.  You can also put a tea light in there and use it for a Valentine's decoration.

I am entering this Treat Box into the following challenges:

Make-up Purse Box Card Valentine

Good Morning,

When I saw this svg file, I knew I had to make it for my niece.  She sells Avon.

Once again, I had to add some bling! How do you like the eye-shadow box in the back? 

Here is a view from the top.

I don't know if you can tell from the photo but those are blingy sungasses hanging from the handle. The mascara wind and the lipstick and lips are all made using glitter paper.  

Here is the sentiment on the back of the card.

And here it is folded into a yummy chocolate candy envelope!

I think that this box card could be used for many occasions such as a teenagers birthday card or a girls hen party.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
