Stamp Camp Goodies, Inspiration Challenge Card, and Decorated Tin

Hello everyone....hope you are enjoying your weekend!! My DH went to Lake Fork in East Texas for a Bass Fishing Tournament yesterday so I am home alone...just me and my stamps!! Whoohoo!!!
I went to my DD Holly's stamp camp this morning and we did some awesome projects!! I love the top note candy wrapper...can't believe I haven't ripped it open to get at those chocolates!!! The red flower with ribbon is a book mark....too cool and I love the cards we made...thanks, Holly, for a fun morning!!

After I got home I went to work on my card for the Inspiration Challenge on friend Anne Harada was the hostess and she picked an awesome room from the Country Living Website as the inspiration.

I started with dp from CherryArte...layered it with White and Purely Pomegranate and used the Stampin Up! scalloped punch on the botton edges. The Stampin Up!chipboard branch was colored with a Chocolate Chip marker and attached with glue dots. The SU bird die was used to create the birds...I ran it through the Cuttlebug with Purely Pomegranate cs and the sentiment was from Clear Dollar Stamps Biggest Wishes set. Purely Pomegranate ribbon and tiny rhinestones from Taylored Expressions finished it off.

I just love these little birds...the wings are cut separately and attached with a glue dot. Ya know, when Purely Pomegranate first came out I wasn't too impressed but now that it's retired, I can't seem to live without it!!!

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Biggest Wishes
Paper: Chocolate Chip, White, Purely Ponegranate, CherryArte dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chipboard, Ribbon, Rhinestones, Bird Die, SU Scallop Punch, Nestabilities

This is the tin I decorated for Thursday's Ways to Use it Challenge on Splitcoast. I used images from Clear Dollar Stamps Bold Bouquet set, stamped the flowers, cut them out, and attached them to the paper band with glue dots. The leaves were punched from scrap dp and the candy was wrapped with SU dp. The sentiment from CDS's Biggest Wishes set was stamped with Elegant Eggplant and cutout with the Blossom Nestabilities.
A button with twine bow and blue Candy Dots finish it off. This will go to my DGD Autumn for one of her birthday gifts...she will be 11 at the end of the month.
