A bit of Whimsy! S' More Fun Workshop

That's me, anything whimsical I love! Here are some close ups of the projects we did at my workshop last week, only I re-did some of them.

The first is the S'more Card. I got this idea from my customer, Lori U. We did these at my workshop and then my little girl said, mom you should have done these like a square. I also redid them on Crumb Cake Card stock and added the textured dots to it to make the entire card look like a Graham Cracker.
Ingredients:
Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Early Expresso Cardstock
Early Expresso 1/8" ribbon
Crumb Cake Stampin' Spot
Sweet Scoops Stamp Set for the Sentiment (Summer Mini)
Early Expresso Ink

Tools used:
Big Shot and Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Teeth for biting- Just kiddn'- I used our Scalloped Circle Punch
Corner Rounder
Sponge
"Yummies" not included!

I just love this stamp set called Under the Stars. The little bear is so darling and you can do sooo many things with him. I made this card to be used for a friend. Have you tried Confetti White Cardstock yet? What are you waiting for? It is thick and stiff and has these darling little specks in it. Love it!

Ingredients:
Wild Wasabi- LOVE this color, Early Expresso, Whisper White and Confetti White Cardstocks
Crumb Cake and Early Expresso Stampin' Write Markers
Early Expresso and Wild Wasabi Inks

Supplies used:
Twine
Under the Stars Stamp Set
Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set


Inside:

Inside I wrote "Life's S'more fun with you as my friend and stamped a little s'more!
The word "Friend" on the front and inside of the card is from the stamp set called Fabulous Phrases


It ended up that one of my dear friends could not make it to the workshop, do to being hospitalized. I sent her the card I made.

Hope you have S'more fun today! Stay tuned for something buggy tomorrow!
