3-in-one a shower prize. SSS12, CBC69, HHC39

So today I created one card to fulfill 3 different challenges. The first challenge in the Sweet Stop Challenge...which is the sketch I used. The second is one of my favorites, the Belli Blog Challenge...which was texture. (Use texture somewhere on your card...flocking, feather soft, etc.) The third is the High Hopes Challenge...which was to Upsy Daisy. (Use daisies on your card). So here is what I came up with.
I used yellow CS as my base, and layered lilac CS on top of that. The DSP is from the Tutti Frutti Collection from The Angel Company. I then cut another yellow square, and layered it with a lilac square. The daisy stamp is the Gerbera Daisy from TAC (My favorite TAC stamp I think!). I cut just the flower part out, and colored the center in yellow. Last I stamped the little butterflies, which are from the TAC set Wild for you. I added black fun flock to them, and cut them out. I used dimensionals to attach them. Here is a little closer shot so you can see the pop-up of it, and the flocking.

The last thing I did on this card was add a little bit of crystal stickles to the flower. You can see that in the photo above also.

My second creation tonight was the first of the prizes I am making for the baby shower for my SIL I mentioned in a previous post. I had seen these on SCS, and thought they would make great gifts/prizes. Well...I struggled to find the note cubes. I went to the links I found off people's SCS posts, and they were unavailable. I did all sorts of google searching, and sent my husband to 3 different office stores! Isn't he great...all that for my stamping project! Anyway, I finally found them on Oriental Trading. They are a 3 pack of them for a very reasonable price. I ordered 2 sets this time around, because I want to make them as teacher gifts this year for Christmas too. It is July and I am already thinking what I am going to make for Christmas So here is the first one I made. I am going to make at least one more of these, but use a different stamp set. I used TAC's Fruit Collages set for this one. Funny this is the second time I have used this set that my mother liked, and I said I would NEVER

As you can see, I stamped on all 4 sides of the cube. I used a purple ink for the grapes, and for the strawberries and raspberries I used red inks...although they are not the same red. I did the strawberry twice. These were SOOOO easy! The hardest part was holding the pad together while stamping on it. I am also going to add a pen to go with each pad when I get them ready for the shower.

Well that is it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
