So Squirrely

I was asked to do some samples for the Stamp of the Month, So Squirrely, this month for The Angel Company. Today I thought I'd share my submissions with you.

First up is a little goodie for someone's birthday that I might of forgotten (and believe me that could happen with me!). I used Catelynne paper collection along with ribbon. The box didn't have a window but I just used my Coluzzle oval cutter and then adhered a piece of acetate to it. The peanuts are in a food safe baggie inside the box. I only tied ribbon on one part of the handle so it can easily be opened and closed by the recipient.
The little 3x3 fits in the band along the back of the box...an all in one kind of gift.

Next I used the Penelope paper collection along with my Copics for this card. I added eyelets to make it a little more masculine so that I could give it to my hubby as a just because kind of thing. I know he'd appreciate it!

The next card is a little far fetched I mean how many pink squirrels have YOU seen? BUT I just love the Mimi paper collection and I was kind of tired of coloring the image the same. This one I thought would be perfect for that special girlfriend that is always there for you. What a great way to let her know you care!

The last two cards use the Willoughby paper collection which happens to be one of my favorite! It's so funny to because about a year or so ago I hated BROWN and now I can't get enough of it!! On the first card I VersaMark "nuts" on the brown cardstock and embossed it using clear embossing powder. I also used VersaMark on the green cardstock but did not emboss it. I used my pencils and OMS for the image.

I just LOVE the sketch of this card! Just a sweet simple card perfect for that missed birthday - come on I KNOW I'm not the only one who forgets birthdays!

So there you have it! I hope you've enjoyed them. I tried to also include a picture of the complete stamp set that is available this month for just $9.75 (after a $30 purchase) but blogger was being difficult. You can see it on my sidebar though on the right hand side.

Just email me if you are interested in placing an order or getting this stamp set for yourself. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
