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,

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!
