Hearts Theme Matching Game

I really enjoyed today's Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge: Patina's. This is my second project for the challenge. I worked on and off all day on this matching game which was inspired by the candy matching game below. I didn't have enough candy stamps from one company, so I ran with the candy hearts idea and made a "Hearts" matching game.

Here's the finished project. I used a small flavored instant coffee tin to hold the pieces. I covered it with SU rose red designer series paper (retired). I also used SU white taffeta ribbon and Creative Memories heart maker. The rest of the details are listed below. I also have more photos to show closer up images of the game pieces.

TOOLS: SU circle punch, Marvy Mega scallop punch
INK: SU and Copic markers, Memento black
Cardstock: GKD white, SU melon mambo

Today is my wedding anniversary. Hot diggity dog, we made it another year! LOL!

Rubbernecker Stamps: Dog (569_12), Hot Diggity sentiment (568_11)
Paper: GP white, SU real red & black, GKD designer paper
Ink: Memento black, Copic markers (black, R27 cadmium red & cool gray #1)
Tools: Spellbinders' Nestabilities labels 17
Accessories: Offray ribbon, pop-up dots

Isn't Alex so adorable!?! I just had to make something a student could always use...
a post-it notes holder.
(You can see a picture of it opened up below the recipe.)

Rubbernecker Stamps: Alex (570_14)
Paper: GP white, SU riding hood red & ballet blue, notebook paper
Ink: Memento black, Copic markers (R46 strong red, B24 sky, Y17 golden yellow,
G28 ocean green, E00 skin white, warm gray #1)
Tools: SU large oval punch, Scor-Pal
Accessories: black brads
Other: velcro, 3x3 post-it notes

I used Velcro to close my post-it note holder. Magnetic discs are another option. The ones pictured above are made by Basic Grey.

These friends are waving... just because. Who needs a reason to say "hi?" I made this awhile ago for a Splitcoast sketch challenge but wanted to post it here because my next card uses only a part of this image.

Rubbernecker Stamps: Chick with Chicklettes (565_06), sentiment (565_22)
GP white cardstock
SU cardstock: crushed curry, summer sun, daffodil delight
SU designer paper: crushed curry dsp, sunny garden dp
Ink: Memento black, SU (creamy caramel, bashful blue, pumpkin pie),
Copic markers (Y38 honey, Y21 buttercup yellow)
Tools: EK Success flower punch, SU corner punch
Accessories: brads

Makes you wonder... What is normal?

These two little chicks just cracked me up when I first saw them. To me, it looks as if one of them is looking at the other like he (or she) is acting a little strangely.

Rubbernecker Stamps: Chick with Chicklettes (565_06),
What is normal? sentiment (564_07)

Paper: GP white, SU pumpkin pie & summer sun
Ink: Memento black, SU creamy caramel (for the ground),
Copic markers (Y17 golden yellow & YR16 apricot)
Tools: SU large oval punch, Spellbinders' Nestabilties scallop oval die & Borderabilities Lattice
Accessories: SU pumpkin pie taffeta ribbon
Size: 4.25 square

Do you like the two cute little shapes on both sides of the sentiment? All I did was use a paper piercer to poke out the negative parts of the border die cut. Cool huh? Yeah, they are quite small to work with, but the results are worth it!

Don't miss out on all of the wonderful creations made by these awesome ladies!
