Fluffles the Cat

Helloooo... This is my Fluffles the Cat collection, I love it.

You can purchase all the Stampendous Fluffles The Cat wood mounted rubber stamps here. I just started some projects with these. So far only 2 with the same stamp and colors. These should keep me busy for a while.
This stamp is called Box of Fluffles. The project is a money gift card. The top photo is the card closed, the bottom is the card open.. with a little something inside. I really like how these color came together.The second project below, is a candy box made with the same Box of Fluffles stamp. It's the perfect idea for this stamp. If you notice, I even put matching color candy inside. The sentiment stamp says 'just a little something...' also from Stampendous.

Hugs n Kisses

This project is another recycle gift made from a Campbell soup can. It's the perfect size for any small gift or even to fill with candy for your honey. I used memory paper to cover the can. It seems to be easier to work with than card stock, it doesn't fight back as much. I used white card stock to stamp on. The hearts, XO and luv ya images are from a Gel-a-tin's clear stamp set called Hugs n Kisses. I love this set, it has endless possibilities.

Asian Gardan

Hello again, it's been a while, huh!? I've been busy with this stamp set by Gel-a-tin's. It's called Asian Garden. This is a multipurpose card that could be used for any occasion. I dug out some scraps out of my scrap bin and carefully placed them in their own spot.

The card to the right hand side is also created with Gel-a-tin's clear rubber stamp set called Asian Garden. I love how the asian grass looks. The 'Get Well Soon' sentiment is from Stampin' Up. The ribbon is also Stampin' Up. When I was embossing the sentiment I accidentally got the heat from the embossing gun on the ribbon. It shrunk it!! But I love how it looks. I guess the best things discovered are on accident. I used pale gold embossing powder for sentiment and trim. I don't know the brand but it's a nice color.

This is my favorite card that I created with this stamp set. That little asian bird was giving me issues but I finally got it to work. The ink colors are Stampin' Up forest foliage and sage shadow. The sentiment is a stamp made by Stampendous. I also did the oops thing with this ribbon too but before doing so I inked the ribbon with forest foliage so it would match.

Coffee Break

This is a project made with a clear rubber stamp set called 'Coffee Break' made by Gel-a-tin's Co. It is a decorated mini brick of Millstone Raspberries n cream ground coffee (just enough for one pot). The sentiment around the solid blue circles says "You're the mocha latte in a world full of cheap machine coffee". The paper was purchased at a local craft store. The inks used are Stampin' Up positively pink and brocade blue. The gift bag was a great garage sale find... I bought about 30 of these in all different colors for a dollar. Perfect match! Great gift idea for anyone.

Not only do I like coffee but so do some pretty good friends of mine. The mug is one of those Color a Mug that you can get at a local craft store for a dollar. I took out the coloring pages and let my imagination go. The inks used for this set are Stampin'Up Close to Cocoa, More Mustard and Chocolate Chip.The project to the right hand side is decorated with the same clear rubber stamp set by Gel-a-tin's. I used Millstone French Vanilla ground coffee for this one. This set really sparked some creativity for me because not The coffee cup on the tag was embossed with Gel-a-tin's Extra Foam Latte scented embossing powder and the coffee beans were embossed with Gel-a-tin's Cuppa Joe Black Coffee scented embossing powder. The aroma made me feel like I was sitting
in a coffee shop. These smell great!!!!
The picture on the bottom right is a shot of the bottom of the mug. I love this idea, inexpensive too.

The project to the left hand side is just about the same as the one on the right only different design. This Coffee Break set is great because you get so many different little stamps which make the project ideas limitless. The picture on the inner left didn't come out that great but this mug did. I used the same Gel-a-tins scented embossing powder on the tag. (Mmmm, smells wonderful). The sentiment says 'Take a break...' Very nice pick me up for a coworker or friend who is having a bad day. I think the Millstone Caramel Truffle ground coffee should do the trick. These mugs are great too because you can decorate the whole thing, even the bottom.

Chocolate Bliss

These are a few projects I made with a clear rubber stamp set called 'Chocolate Bliss' made by Gel-a-tins Co. The top project is a decorated box of Lindt truffles, Mmmm! The sentiment says "You're the chocolate truffle in a chocolate bar world." I also used that sentiment on the candy
box as seen in the project below on the right hand side. The candy box is filled with individually wrapped Lindt Lindor Truffles. What a great way to cheer up a friend. The tags were made with a Stampin' Up circle punch. The chocolate truffle image on all the tags were embossed with Gel-a-tins 'Chocolate Bliss' scented embossing powder. Let me tell ya, it smells good enough to eat.
The project on the left hand side was also made with the same set using Lindt Swiss milk chocolate with liquid raspberry filling, yummy! (I don't know if I want to give this one away). The sentiment used for this says "Man cannot live on chocolate alone, but a woman can!" I couldn't think of a better way to honor a great piece of chocolate and make someone smile at the same time.

No Peeking Gift Card

It's a little early for Christmas cards I know but I couldn't resist this reindeer stamp (very cute!!) This is a 3x3 gift card made with Stampin Up stamps from two different sets. The reindeer image is from a retired 1999 set called 'Holiday Helpers' and the 'No peeking 'til Christmas' sentiment is from the retired 1999 set called 'Holiday Sampler'. The background image is from a Stampin Up Jumbo Wheel called 'Busy Blocks'. The inks are Stampin Up Real Red and Close to Cocoa. The ribbon and card stocks I purchased at my local craft store along with the wiggly eyes and puff ball nose.

For My Friend

This project is a great way to recycle. It started with an empty mushroom can, about 3" tall. There is a little measuring involved so the paper fits the can.

The cat, mouse, fish and heart images are from a clear rubber stamp set called 'Pet Shop' made by Gel-a-tin's.

The 'For My Friend' image is from a clear stamp set made by Stampendous.

The paw print background stamp is by Great Impressions.

The grass inside the can is shredded paper. I purchased bags of this stuff at area stores when the Easter season ended. So I got it cheap, or you could make it your self if your patient (which I am definitely not)!

Fill with your friends favorite candy.
