Up Up & Away for the boys

Today's projects are especially for the boys - from my Father's Day/Masculine class at the end of August ( I know - bad blogger!). First up, a card using 'Up Up & Away' & some new colours (at that time) - midnight muse & gumball green, teamed with baja breeze on a crumb cake base.
A bit more about the card - I've been quite obsessed with tails or flag-ends, banners or whatever else they're called for a while & thought they'd be good for to add a bit of extra interest here. I popped the balloons & happy birthday panel are popped on dimensionals. I stamped some clouds & birds (trust me - the original has birds. Must have forgot to put them on this one). Speaking of the original card - I made it first with the similar colour combo of night of navy, wild wasabi & bashful blue, but decided to give the new in-colours (& new style ink pads) a  whirl for the class version.
Looking back at the card, it could be very easily changed for a girl...or anyone with a colour change....& a maybe a punched flower in each balloon (like the second card in this post).

Father's Day Chocolate Slider
Here's another quick & easy (but yummy) project we made at the class - a chocolate slider in the same midnight muse & gumball green combo.
We stamped the ties & 'Best Dad Ever' sentiment from the 'Best Dad Ever' stamp set (which also has the Happy Birthday stamp used on the card). & attached it to a gumball green box, decorated with a strip of Comfort Cafe DSP. This size fitted a large Lindt bar (extra creammmmy), but I've made lots of other sizes too. Here's a pic showing the lovely contents.
I know my lovely class ladies have been making lots of these sliders since the class too, so it was obviously a hit with them.
Anyway, it's been a long day, so I'm off to bed...after adding the supply list. Until next time...
Inky wishes, Di
