Materials:
Cardboard: Green and black
Ink: Garden Green, Stazon black
Accessories: mini playing cards
Hope you like it,
Caity

Seahorse
Hi guys!! This is another great card that you can use for anything. I also CASEd this card (as I do with nearly all my cards) but I don't know who from. If anyone knows, can you please tell me.
Materials:
Cardboard: SU More Mustard, Tempting Turquoise
Stamps: By the Tide
Ink: SU Tempting Turquoise, More Mustard, Old Olive
Method:
I think that this card is pretty simple to work out. On the white card, first you stamp the words in Old Olive ink, then the other whats-ma-call-it in more mustard and then the seahorse in Tempting Turquoise.
Hugs,
Caity
P.S. If you can't figure it out, tell me and I will write it out, though it should be pretty simple.
Christmas Tree
Hi guys!! This is a cute and simple Christmas card to make. I know it is a bit late but you can still make it for next year. Oh and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I got this idea from a Splitcoaststampers tutorial.

Materials
Cardboard: SU Garden Green, Summer Sun
Accessories: White gel pen, SU watercolour crayons, star/snowflake punch
Method
1. Get half of an A5 piece of paper (that is the size that I used but you can make it bigger or smaller. It works either way.) and measure the length of it at the top and figure out what half of it is and make a small mark.Then draw a line from that mark to each corner and cut the tree out.
2. Now time for decorating. Make dots all over the cardboard with your white gel pen. Make sure there aren't any big gaps or anything. Then go over them with the crayons. Use quite a few colours, not just one. The colours I used were SU more mustard, Cajun craze, Cherry cobbler, Garden green, Elegant eggplant and Not quite navy.
3. Draw little dots (with your white gel pen again) in lines going down the tree.
4. Last but not least, punch out the star/snowflake and stick it on top. Stick a back on it and voila!!
Hope you like it,
Caity

Ship Birthday
Hi guys! This is a REALLY cool birthday card to make. I gave something similar to my teacher for his birthday and he loved it.
 


Materials:
Cardboard: SU Basic Black, Basic Grey and White
Ink: SU Marina Mist, Not quite Navy, Stazon Black
Accessories: Brads, Scallop punch, white gel pen, shaving cream, ink refills, die cutters
Method:
1. Measure all the cardboard to size (like you would in any card)
2. Measure your basic grey cardboard and mark out where the white lines will go. Do that on both sides and then draw the line. Make a second jaggered line underneath on all of them.
3. Then, put a bit of shaving cream on an ice-cream lid (or whatever you would like to use eg. plastic container lid). Put a blob of marina mist and not quite navy from the refills on the shaving cream and mix it around a bit. Let it dry.
4. While it is drying, you can cut the white ring to go around it. Measure the stamp on it and see what size (sorry, but I don't know what sizes) to make it. Then put the 2 circles in your cuttlebug or big shot.
5. After the shaving cream is dry, stamp the ship with stazon black ink. Then measure out the brad positioning and stick the brads in.
6. Now stamp the happy birthday stamp, cut it and the black back round out. With the scallop punch, put the corner into one of the scallops and punch it. Do that with all the corners.
7. Now stick everything together.
8. Stick a back on and step back and admirer it. 😊😊
Hugs,
Caity 🎈🎁
P.S. I CASEd this card from someone but can't remember who. If you know, please tell me.
