These are the little treats I made for his kindergarten class...it is just 2 Kit Kat bars wrapped in a strip of Gable Green, with a little alien space ship with a circle of Green Galore and a scallop circle of Pacific Point....
...they were a big hit!

I opted for the owl punch turkey with the 5 petal flower feathers (since it was a bit quicker than last year's oval punch turkey...I just trimmed off the little ears of the owl and added 3 different colored 'feathers'...the little waddle is the heart from the owl punch, punched 2x and cut in half, layering half of the yellow heart over the red as a beak...

These are 1 inch squares, each embossed with a different embossing folder (hence the time consuming part)...the little stamped square is actually a tag stamp...this could really be an any occasion card--just change up the last square...

But I thought I'd post 2 cute photos of my kids in our backyard...
Hope you have a wonderful Turkey Day!

I punched the legs in Pink Piroheutte and again in white and trimmed the white to make a ballet slipper (hint: I made one as a template and used it over and over...the body/shirt is a scallop circle (the larger one) with a little tulle skirt made from 2 large scallop Big Shot dies folded in half and scrunched and sewed together...a little pink bow tops it off....
I think I am going to make these for our Ballet Brunch at my kids' dance school as pins, but they would easily fit on a card (maybe one with a dance bar, wood floor and a mirror???) Hhhhmmmmm.....

It is really so simple and stunning (and easy!)

I painted the fish scales with some Crystal Effects...the sentiment is actually printed from the computer since I don't own a stamp that was simple and would fit into a circle punch...the background is stamped with the Fishy Friends matching wheel...don't you just love the layout, too?
Lucky Limeade, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point

After trying a hair dryer and a curling iron, and then almost moving onto a hair flat iron, I realized that I could use my embossing heat gun! It worked like a charm!!!! And no flames! See...all that stuff I have for stamping does come in handy....I'll have to remember that excuse when my hubby sees my next order come for the UPS guy!

You can hardly see it, but I stamped some hearts on the bottom half of the card in River Rock ink...don't you just love rounded corners?
Bravo Burgandy, Baja Breeze, River Rock (combo taken from Color Coach)

Even though this is a 5 x 5 card, I was able to emboss the River Rock background piece since the folder I used was an open design...I just positioned it to emboss different areas of the card and ran it through the Big Shot twice...oh! and I sponged the edges of this piece to make it pop!
Cherry Cobbler, River Rock, Early Expresso, Marina Mist (color combo taken directly from Color Coach)

This would even be cute for a teacher gift with a gift card sticking out....

Helpful Hint: I glued the rainbow (torn) strips to a piece of white card stock measuring 4 1/4" x 3"...that way I was able to center it perfectly and trim all pieces equally....
Real Red, Only Orange, Daffodil Delight, Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Lavender Lace, Basic Black, Whisper White

I had seen a version of this made in a regular A2 size, but changed it around to fit into a square card...
1 inch square punch and 3/4 inch circle punch...
Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise, Early Expresso, Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz, Lucky Limeade, Baja Breeze

Instead of doing a raised panel door (which I like much better) I only made the door flat...
More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red

I used my Woodgrain background stamp (naturally) and added a brad for the door knob....the wreath itself was pretty simple...I used my punches to make a wreath, then added the leaves from the bird punch all around (I thought about using the Little Leaves diecut, but didn't want to run the die through the Big Shot 40 times!
I used a mix of shades of green...then added a bow and some punched out berries (from the cupcake punch)...wait till you see the Autumn colored wreath I made....

HINT!!!!! VERY LIGHTLY glue the leaves down as it should take you several tries to get a round wreath!
Ruby Red (or Riding Hood Red--whichever you have) Baroque Burgandy, More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, Always Artichoke
*the original card had one leaf in So Saffron but I couldn't fit in in because I need to have 2 of everything (anal retentive!)
