SNAIL Ghost - Stamp Clubs Third Card

Here is my ghost card that I did with my stamping club this week. We used the package from the SNAIL tape for the ghost shape! Mine is filled with paper here, but you would really fill it with candy or some other white treat! (White gumballs, yogurt covered raisins, mints or something like that.) There is a slide out pocket too, so the recipient of the card does not have to ruin it to get the treat out.
I have to give full credit to my wonderful husband for this idea. I knew I wanted to make something with the SNAIL container, but could not come up with something good. Some days I just have a creative block going on... he always comes up with something good! He came up with the ghost and another great idea. Check back soon to see what his second idea was!
Here is the inside showing the pull-out pocket. I will try to write up directions for this soon so keep checking! I forgot to take step-by-step pictures while I was doing it. Woops!

Second Stamp Club Card

Here is the second card that my stamping club ladies did last night. I used the Gently Falling stamp set from the new 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog and the Perfect Words Hostess set.
This card uses a 6-1/2" square card base folded in half to fit the small open end envelopes that SU has. I used Early Espresso, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler ink for this card and Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler cardstock for it.
The small Vanilla squares are 2" x 2" and the Crumb Cake is 6-1/2" x 2-1/4"

Christmas Lodge Colored Snow

I used the Christmas Lodge stamp set from the new 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog to make this card. I love this set!
I stamped the lodge image on Crumb Cake cardstock with Early Espresso ink and then colored in the snow parts with the white gel pen. So simple and looks so nice! This is one of the cards that my stamp club ladies are doing tonight. Keep checking back to see the other two cards they will do!

Noah's Ark Thank You Card

Here is the card that I made using my Noah's Ark Gift Box and card set. I made this as a thank you for a neighbor that loaned us their sump pump to bail out our basement for Irene! We had 6 inches of water and gaining with 4 pumps going! However, after seeing the damage that was done to our little town, I can't complain at all. I am in Vermont, so the damage around here has been devastating. We are not one of the stranded towns, thank goodness, but we lost a lot here and right around us. Lot's of roads are closed so it's really hard to get anywhere.
It is getting better day by day but still unreal what some rain did. I thought this card was kind of a funny way to say thank you for the help!

Here is the original Noah's Ark card and box that I made below!
