New Beginnings

I'm so excited to be sharing some fun projects.  The first project is a Clean and Simple Card featuring the Something for Baby Stamp Set and coordinating Framelits… You'll find that it is a fairly easy card to create but has a simple POP of Color that will just WOW your socks off!  For the second project, I decided to do a FUN 3D project featuring the Fry Box Bigz Die perfect for filling with treats for your childs NEW Teacher as we begin a new school year.  

 

Project #1 –  Rubber Ducky New Beginnings Card

 

New Beginnings Baby Card by Pam Staples, SunnyGirlScraps

The card base is Whisper White cardstock layered with Tempting Turquoise and another layer of Whisper White Cardstock.  The rubber duckies were stamped using Daffodil Delight and then cut out with the coordinating Baby's First Framelits Dies.  Behind the Rubber Duckies, I stamped a background using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set with the Tempting Turquoise which sets the tone for the Rubber Ducks to be "floating" on water.  For the Banner in the upper Left corner, I used the Banner Banter Stamp Set using Smoky Slate  classic ink then it was punched out using the Banner Punch.  The final touches included adding the "bows" and the punched star to the banner.  The star was stamped using the Daffodil Delight and star image from the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set.

Project #2 – Teacher Treat Fry Box 

 

School Days Fry Box celebrating New Beginnings with the RemARKables created by Pam Staples, Sunnygirlscraps

How great would it be to have your son or daughter bring in a treat for their new teacher and telling them that "You Make the World a better Place?"  Can we say "Teacher's Pet?"   Well, it can at least help the New School year get started on the right foot.  The Fry Box is created using the Fry Box Bigz Die with Crisp Cantaloupe Card Stock.  The stamped image is from the Starburst Sayings Stamp Set using the Tangerine Tango Classic Ink and cut out using the coordinating Framelit.  To add a little extra detail but still keeping it simple, I tied the Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine around the Fry Box.  This is a QUICK, fun and great Teacher Gift for the new school year.  Now… I would normally use a Cello Bag filled with treats and tied with a cute bow but since I'm traveling I didn't bring those items with me so no treats to share at this time but here is a lake photo of Me holding my Son, Caleb, driving Grandpa's Pontoon boat for you to enjoy…
