Whiff of Joy Designer Call

Whiff of Joy is holding a Guest Designer Call!! I just received two stamps that I purchased from them and they are amazing!! I purchased them from Stamper's Dream and received them within 2 days!! I just had to pull them out and start playing with them right away. The images stamp so crisp and clean and they are so much fun to color. The first stamp I played with is Willow with Hot Chocolate. I stamped two images side by side and colored one in with Copics and the other one with color pencils and odorless mineral spirits. It was such joy to use these stamps that I've decided to submit some samples for their Designer call. Keep watching this post for more samples as they become available. If you're interested in submitting as well, click on THIS link to go to Katharina's blog for instructions.
This is the first sample I'm submitting for the designer call. It's a matchbook style coffee packet holder. It was so easy to make that I'm thinking this will make great little gifties for RAK's and those random occasions that pop up. Here's some details on the card front before I start talking about the inside: I stamped the image on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image in with Copic markers. The panel was edged in orange ink and attached to my favorite My Mind's Eye paper. The small flowers are from My Favorite Things, they come in white and I painted them with brown and orange ink and layered them using a mini brad in copper. The wrapper was made using chocolate colored Bazzill cardstock from the Preppy paper pad.

I purchased a box of these individual coffee packs from Wal-Mart for about $1. In order to attach them, I first stapled them onto a small strip of cardstock. I then glued the cardstock along the bottom score mark, folded the score mark up and stapled the packet once along the bottom. Since the packets are so long, I used a little bit of double sided tape to hold them against the cardstock so they don't flop around so much. I'm thinking that with assembly line style production, these cute little gifts can be done in no time at all!!

I plan on adding a few more entries before the deadline, so please check back often for more Whiff of Joy creations. Thanks!

ETA: Please check out this and this post for another Whiff of Joy entry. Thanks!
