Stamp With Us Recipe Challenge

This week over at Stamp With Us, the girls posted a recipe challenge where had to use:
No patterned paper
2 ribbons
2 stamps.

The colors I chose to use were Old Olive and Razzleberry. I also used Old Olive ribbon and layered this with a (as close as I could get it) "razzleberry" colored ribbon. I clear embossed two butterflies from the Great Friends stamp set on Whisper White and the sentiment is from the stamp set called Soft Summer from our Spring Mini Catalogue.
I always love to decorate the inside of my cards as well because it is as important as the outside.

More UStamp Creations.

What a fun time we are having this UStamp. Lots of projects to fill our time making, lots of chatting going on and lovely ladies from all over the world to meet.

Today I am showcasing 2 projects posted by Tracey Old who is the Dream Team Member from New Zealand. The first is Tracey's Coffee Treat Box - this is sooooo easy to make and looks so effective. You don't have to use it for coffee only but as a gift box for chocolates, candles, the list is endless.
As you can see I made this in light blue bazzill with a designer paper from Francheville. On the belly band I have added a little decoration in the form of two clear embossed butterflies from the Good Friends Stamp Set.

The project that I completed today is Tracey's Card Purse. This is very quick and easy to make. The main color is Tempting Turquoise with a touch of Cameo Coral. The dsp is and SU retired pack which I can't remember the name of. Once again it can be used to put some cards and envelopes in or perhaps some other little gift.

Just click on the UStamp with Dawn and Friends button on the left hand side of my blog. This will take you to the site where you can learn more about what the site entails and can join up and create lovely projects from ladies all over the world.

Until next time, have a good day or night where ever you may be!
