Toucan Says “Make a Wish, Friend”

I LOVE this Toucan stamp.  It's from the Little Buddy Birthday stamp set.  There's a dinosaur and an ardvarck in the set too.  This was the third card we did for the Back to Black class featuring the Back to Black designer paper.  I used the Word Bubbles to cut the words out — doesn't it look like the Toucan could be saying "Make a Wish, Friend".

Back to Black Specialty Card

This is another card from my Back to Black Class — each guest received a package of the Back to Black Designer Paper and a roll of 1/4" White Cotton Ribbon and we made four cards.  This card doesn't use any of the ribbon but has kind of a cool technique.  Remember, this paper is Black & White — hmmmm…..we used markers to color in the white parts of the paper.  Pretty cool, huh!!!  The girls loved this one.  It was a little more time consuming but the results are wonderful.

And don't forget there's only 2 more days to get in on the Designer Paper Sale — Buy 3 packages and Get 1 FREE!!!  Sale ends Thursday, July 31st.

Floral Awesomeness

Awesomeness — is that really a word.  This is one of the cards we did at my Back to Black Class last night.  The base of this card is Strawberry Slush.  I added a layer of Basic Black and then adhered the Back to Black Designer Series Paper to the black layer.  I cut out three black flowers using the Flower Fair Thinlits.  The larger flower is stamped with Strawberry Slush ink and cut out with the Flower Fair Thinlits.  I added Rhinestones to the center for a little bling.
