Here are a few that were made by the ladies at a recent Chocoholic Chicks meeting...

Cute, aren't they?  Doesn't it make you want to go grab some card stock and stamps and make a few?  I think they would be great filled with chocolate too!  (Of course, I think everything would be great filled with chocolate!)

Smiley from Millan.Net
Here are just a few samples.  All of these cards were made with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set, the Tree Builder punch, and the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack.  I'm sure you'll be seeing lots of cards made with this stamp set!

Screen Card Instructions and Weekly Deals

New Weekly Deals --
Smiley from Millan.Net

Recently I've been making some screen cards and everyone who has seen them seems to want to know how to make them.  They're really quite easy, once you have the measurements.  Here's a sample of the first one I made:
And in another color...
SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Everything Eleanor, Petite Petals, Petite Pairs
Punches:  Decorative Label, Petite Petals, Large Oval, Scallop Oval, Bitty Butterfly, (Eyelet Border Punch - retired)

You can make either 3-panel or 4-panel sizes.  I chose to make the 4-panel.  You can vary the size, but I wanted to be sure that the final size would fit into a standard A2 envelope.

SCREEN CARD INSTRUCTIONS:

·        Cut cardstock 11” x 5-1/2” (or 5-3/4” if you’re using a punch at the top that cuts some off).
·        Score on the long edge at 2-3/4”, 5-1/2”, and 8-1/4”.

·        Punch across the top with a decorative punch.  (I used the Hearts Border Punch on this card.)
·        Using the Decorative Label Punch, insert halfway up on the bottom of your cardstock and punch.  Punch one layer at a time, lining up the previously punched panel with the next one to make sure they are even.
·        Cut four back panels at 4-1/4” by 2-1/2” (adjusting size as needed).
·        Cut four Whisper White panels at 4-1/8” by 2-3/8”.
·        Decorate/stamp white panels as desired.
·        Layer onto back panels.
·        Layer onto screen card with strong adhesive like Fast Fuse.

I used the Sheltering Tree stamp to make this card.  I think that's my favorite stamp set right now!
