Pizza My Heart

My daughter talked me into this Lawn Fawn set.  Well actually, it didn't require much arm-twisting.  It was already on my wish list.  She only encouraged me to buy it sooner!  lol  I love the sentiments and the build-your-own pizza design.  Naturally, I had to use it for a little card to tuck into her bag.

I stamped the heart-shaped pizza and added all the tiny toppings in different colors.  Love!  So quick and easy.  I used So Saffron and Close to Cocoa markers to color the crust and pizza cutter.  I hand-cut the pizza cutter and glued it in place.  You'd never know it was placed there to cover a smudge!  :)  Here's a close-up of the pizza cutter so you can see the pretty silver shimmer.  Wink of Stella pens are the best!

Did I mention how much I adore this new die by Avery Elle?  I will be using this one a lot.  I really love the striped paper I used for the envelope.  It's from the Brights Collection dsp by Stampin' Up.  I think it channels those old-fashioned striped awnings, perfect for a pizza parlor vibe!

Somebunny Loves You

I got a new die set by Avery Elle specifically to make little cards to tuck in my daughter's lunch box or backpack.  She's been having a rough year at school.  I love the darling scalloped envelope!  It's also a smaller card canvas, so it's been fun to use my stamps to make these.  :)

I was lucky enough to win the entire latest Verve Stamps release.  Seriously!  This stamp set called Hip Hop Bunnies was included.  Isn't it darling?  It's perfect for a little pick-me-up.  The sentiment is my favorite image in the whole set.

I stamped the bunny on white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers, along with three carrots.  The tiny bow was stamped on the paper I used for the envelope.  And yes, I hand-cut everything!

The grass was cut with a die by My Favorite Things from Garden Green cardstock.  Once everything was glued in place, I stamped the sentiment in the upper corner.

I am so in love with this Envie die by Avery Elle!  It has a pierced detail that adds so much to the overall look.  I pulled out an old Stampin' Up patterned paper called Spring Fling.  The double-sided print adds a nice surprise when it's opened.

I have two more mini cards to share using this die, so stay tuned.  I have several in-process cards on my desk too.  Just having a bit of a mojo block!  I tucked this into my daughter's bag when she left for a school coast trip two days ago.  I can't wait to hear all about it when she gets home tonight.  I have missed her so much!
