Better Late Than Never...

Last week I had some super cute projects for my Stamp Clubbers... I say so because I totally CASE'd a couple of projects and mucked around with them until I was happy. You know, my standard M.O! Without further ado... my favorite card in a long time. I really didn't change a whole lot about this one, so I cannot claim it as my own brainchild. I actually remember the original artist - I know, deep breaths and you will get over your shock quicker! Her name is Gretchen Barron. (Love that name - Gretchen.)

The set is Upsy Daisy and the DSP is Urban Garden... I dubbed this the U2 card. Guess why? The card base is Not Quite Navy and the highlight and ribbon color is Kiwi Kiss. The only ink I used was NQN, but the highlighted daisies were stamped-off twice... so it is the first and third impression of the same ink. This card is so pretty IRL. where is Annie Leibowitz when you need her???

This little beauty is a modified version of a tri-fold card I found on SCS. I added a couple of extra scores, changed up the dimensions to fit the beautiful Hershey bar, and...

TA DAAA... Like I said, beautiful. And, yes, I am gushing over the chocolate. There is nothing like Hershey's chocolate - am I right?

Two words... YUM. MEE.

The project consists of Basic Black, Green Galore, Lovely Lilac and Tangerine Tango paper, with Batty and Batty for You stamps and jumbo wheel using Basic Black Classic ink and cartridge. I found these awesome magnetic closures at Mike's (they are made by Basic Grey). I also used Sticky Strip to secure the lovely chocolate bar in place. Additionally, I used the Corner Rounder and Word Window punches for the "buckle" portion. For kicks and giggles, I slapped on a couple of googlie eyes. What is a batty bat without crazy eyes?!
