Materials:
Cardboard: Green and black
Ink: Garden Green, Stazon black
Accessories: mini playing cards
Hope you like it,

Hi guys!! This is another great card that you can use for anything. I also CASEd this card (as I do with nearly all my cards) but I don't know who from. If anyone knows, can you please tell me.

P.S. If you can't figure it out, tell me and I will write it out, though it should be pretty simple.
Christmas Tree
Hi guys!! This is a cute and simple Christmas card to make. I know it is a bit late but you can still make it for next year. Oh and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I got this idea from a Splitcoaststampers tutorial.

Materials
Cardboard: SU Garden Green, Summer Sun
Accessories: White gel pen, SU watercolour crayons, star/snowflake punch
Method
1. Get half of an A5 piece of paper (that is the size that I used but you can make it bigger or smaller. It works either way.) and measure the length of it at the top and figure out what half of it is and make a small mark.Then draw a line from that mark to each corner and cut the tree out.
2. Now time for decorating. Make dots all over the cardboard with your white gel pen. Make sure there aren't any big gaps or anything. Then go over them with the crayons. Use quite a few colours, not just one. The colours I used were SU more mustard, Cajun craze, Cherry cobbler, Garden green, Elegant eggplant and Not quite navy.
3. Draw little dots (with your white gel pen again) in lines going down the tree.
4. Last but not least, punch out the star/snowflake and stick it on top. Stick a back on it and voila!!
Hope you like it,
Caity

Ship Birthday
Hi guys! This is a REALLY cool birthday card to make. I gave something similar to my teacher for his birthday and he loved it.
 


Materials:
Cardboard: SU Basic Black, Basic Grey and White
Ink: SU Marina Mist, Not quite Navy, Stazon Black
Accessories: Brads, Scallop punch, white gel pen, shaving cream, ink refills, die cutters
Method:
1. Measure all the cardboard to size (like you would in any card)
2. Measure your basic grey cardboard and mark out where the white lines will go. Do that on both sides and then draw the line. Make a second jaggered line underneath on all of them.
3. Then, put a bit of shaving cream on an ice-cream lid (or whatever you would like to use eg. plastic container lid). Put a blob of marina mist and not quite navy from the refills on the shaving cream and mix it around a bit. Let it dry.
4. While it is drying, you can cut the white ring to go around it. Measure the stamp on it and see what size (sorry, but I don't know what sizes) to make it. Then put the 2 circles in your cuttlebug or big shot.
5. After the shaving cream is dry, stamp the ship with stazon black ink. Then measure out the brad positioning and stick the brads in.
6. Now stamp the happy birthday stamp, cut it and the black back round out. With the scallop punch, put the corner into one of the scallops and punch it. Do that with all the corners.
7. Now stick everything together.
8. Stick a back on and step back and admirer it. 😊😊
Hugs,
Caity 🎈🎁
P.S. I CASEd this card from someone but can't remember who. If you know, please tell me.

Turtle's Thank you

Hi guys!!
This is a nice thank you card and it is quite fun to make.
Materials
Cardboard: Dark green, light green and white
Ink: Stazon black
Stamps: Nature's nest
Accessories: SU crayons, blender pen
Method
1. Cut the light green to size against the dark green
2. Then cut the white to size against the light green
3. Stamp the turtles (or whatever you want to stamp) in stazon black ink
4. Now you stamp your sentiment. I do it before I do the colouring because if you mess up the sentiment after colouring it in, it wastes your time and your crayons
5. After stamping your sentiment, you can colour in the turtles. You can also use markers or ink pads but I use the SU crayons. To use the crayons, you put a few darkish strokes in the area that you want that colour. You don't have to colour it in because the blender pen will do that. With the blender pen, go over the crayon strokes and spread out the colour.
Tip: Remember, the SU crayons are especially made for card making so don't go using any type of crayon.
Keep stampin,
Caity
P.S. I CASEd this card from someone but can't remember who. If you know, please tell me.

Bunny

Hi guys!!
This is a cute card that you can use for anything.
Materials
Cardboard: SU ruby red, SU elegant eggplant and white
Ink: Elegant eggplant
Accessories: Ribbon, rhinestones, SU patterned paper, 1 1/2 circle punch, scallop punch
Method
1. First, cut the red cardboard
2. Then, cut the purple card to size against the red
3. Measure up the patterned paper as shown on the picture
4. Stamp the bunny or whatever you want to and brush the edges
5. Punch out the stamp and the red scallop and stick them together
6. Stick on the patterned paper, the bunny, the ribbon and the rhinestones
7. One last thing before you are finished. You have to put a back on it so it can stand! All you have to do is fold an A5 piece of white cardboard and stick it on the back.
The reason that you don't use coloured cardboard to make the back is because one A5 piece of coloured cardboard, can make two cards. Coloured cardboard is also more expensive than plain white cardboard.
Keep stampin,
Caity
P.S. I CASEd this card from someone but can't remember who. If you know, please tell me.

Best Wishes

Hi guys!
This is a very simple and pretty best wishes card. Here is what you need and how to make it.
Materials:
Cardboard: Stampin up (SU) blushing bride, light green and white
Ink: SU regal rose, SU garden green and stazon black
Stamps: SU simply soft
Accessories: Circle die cut, SU markers, embossing folders, pearls
Method:
1. First, you get your A5 piece of white cardboard, and fold it in half.
2. Then you measure the pink and green cardboard, cut it, and emboss it. Remember, you don't have to use pink and green. It would look nice in other colours too
3. You then stamp your image onto a piece of white cardboard in stazon black ink. Stazon ink is the best to use because it is a waterproof inkpad.
4. Now, you cut out the stamp with your die cut. I would do that first before colouring in the stamp and stamping the sentiment.
5. Colouring in time now. You can colour in the flowers now and stamp the sentiment.
6. After that, you can stick everything on and piece it together!
Hope you like it!
Keep stampin,
