tickled pink...

My daughters teachers assistant loves pigs! I always have a hard time with her because I don't have that many pig stamps and I hate giving her the same ones time after time. SO I found this oldie but goodie that I hadn't used for her yet. WooHoo!

I stamped in pink on the note cards, then stamped in black on a scrap of ancient SU paper (gotta love using up scraps!) I cut each piggy out and plastered it over the pink image... leaving the pink tail and the pink sentiment.

After cutting out all those piggies, I decided to make things easier on myself. So, I snipped off the sentiment and stamped piggies onto each envelope in pink. No markers.

I made the little book with that white chip backer from a pack of su dsp and covered it with matching old su paper. I didn't like any of my fancy ribbons I have with this, so I went with plain old grosgrain on all spirals.

stamps: su very punny
ink: regal rose, memento black
paper: old su designer, pti white
accessories: bind it all (yes you really do need one!) ribbons, copic marker

a note for coffee lovers...

I made these notes for my daughters teacher. She loves coffee. I wasn't sure what her favorite color is, so I used Cameo Coral and Blush Blossom because... well they're MY favorite colors! I love the feel of Paper Tray cardstock for note cards. They are so sturdy with a hint of texture. It just makes me want to write a note. I made some matching envelopes in case she wanted to mail them or just have a nice put together set :) Each note card was edged with a coordinating Copic Marker.

... and what set would be complete without a handy dandy notebook? I simply cover some coasters with chocolate paper, edged it with a paint dabber layered up an image and slapped it on. The sentiment is on the inside cover. She loved it!

stamps: pti warm happiness
ink: su cameo coral, blush blossom, chocolate chip,
paper: su cameo coral, blush blossom, chocolate chip, whisper white, pti white
accessories: assorted pti, su and scrap ribbons, adirondack acrylic paint dabber in salmon, copic marker, bind it all
