Chipboard Coaster Card / Books

Trying to catch up on a few projects today! This is coaster card (book) was made for me by a friend Lisa C. The coasters are painted, the eggs are cut outs, inked and a stamped greeting. Open it up and surprise!

Easter saying and an Easter poem, eggs and a bunny! Pretty neat! Could be used as a decoration.
I am making a coaster book/ card for a secret pal but can't show you the finished project (she checks this blog from time to time)
Using a Vintage vellum print (done from home) and the metal photo holders. Below is the inside it will have poems and some embellishments. Very simple to make, use 2 chipboard coasters and allow just enough extra paper to allow it to fold. Doesn't get much easier than that! You could add personal photos, journaling, sayings or whatever you want.
Ever have one of those days or need a laugh? This is another card that was sent for a swap.
Had to be mostly green, any theme. I love the Goofy stamps (old but fun). Embossed and sanded the cardstock, added a little bling and then used paper photo corners for the images.

Cupcake Cards

Few cards using Close to My Heart "Cupcake Sprinkles" at a workshop tonite. Several variations and techinques.
This card was inspired by another CTMH consultant we added twists to it. Some grograin ribbon, embossing, and distressing, and a real ticket.
Embossing, distressing, liquid glass, sequin for top of cupcake, and a ribbon loop for the greeting tag.
A different take on the cupcake (not finshed) the greeting is not on the card yet. The cupcake paper was really from Valentine's Day. There are so many fun ways to use this stamp and many colors or embellishments to add.
