For my first project I created a card perfect for welcoming a baby into the world!  I just love both of the sweet elephants in this set!

Supplies:
Copic Markers: W00, W0, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, R20, Boooo
Extra Fine White Paint Pen (Sharpie)
Pierced Circle Die
Scallop Border Die
 Ribbon

For my next card, I created a sunset background using distress inks.  I also created my own embossed card base using my scor-buddy.  I love the added texture it adds to a CAS card.  If you watched Gina's Release presentation she did something very similar....great minds think alike! ;)  

Supplies:
Embossing Heat Tool
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, 
Spiced Marmalade & Fried Brick (Tim Holtz/Ranger)

Up next is a fun gift card holder.  Who wouldn't love to receive a gc to the local ice cream shop?  A perfect Summertime thank you!  You can find the tutorial I used HERE.

Rectangle Die
Ribbon
Glossy Accents (Ranger)
Glitter


Here's a super cute little notecard...perfect for catching up with a special friend.  You can easily change out the greeting and it can become a sweet birthday card.  Doesn't that ice cream cone look yummy?

 
 Supplies:
Sugar Shoppe 6x6 Pad (Doodlebug Design)
Copic Markers: R81, R83, R85, R29, E33, E35, E37, E42, E50, E51

 My final card features one of the yummy cupcakes in this set.  This set is full of yummy options and sentiments.  I will definitely be reaching for this one often.

 Supplies:
Aqua Cardstock
Sugar Shop 6x6 Pad (Doodlebug Designs)
Copic Markers: RV17, RV19, R81, R85, BG10, BG11, BG15, E33, E35, E37
