Oh What Fun!

The “Oh What Fun” Collection offers you just thank – fun!  You can do your traditional Christmas pages with this kit or venture out far and wide.  I’ve seen some amazing art created that has nothing to do with Winter or the Holidays!  It’s great to have a collection so versatile.  It’s like the Hello Pumpkin Collection! I’ve seen everything but Halloween with that one.  =)

Here’s a card created by Barb Baldwin from the 50 Card Swap showing you how versatile this paper is:

Whimsical Day To Remember

Whimsical Day To Remember

Here’s a card I created using some scraps from the Whimsy Fundamental Paper Pack scraps, the July Stamp of the Month (SOM) S1807 Highlight Reel, and miscellaneous ribbon scraps.  My scrap box is getting pretty heavy and I need to start creating from this to start using it up (or donate it to the school again).   I have a few packs of the Fundamentals that I’ve used for various projects with some leftovers.

Start off with a black base.  Take a few stripes of scraps that work together and cut them down to 5″.  The width was based on what they already were in the scrap bucket.  Distress with matching ink.

Use two different ribbon scraps to add some elements and dimension to the card.  Stamp and cut out the sentiment from the July SOM.  Mount on 3D Foam Tape.  Use the Gold Shimmer brush over the top of the sentiment to tie in the gold from the ribbon.

July things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Have a Whimsical Day to Remember.  Be creative.  It’s cheaper than therapy, LOL.

Classic Summer Bash

Classic Summer Bash

 

We had an amazing weekend and got a lot done around our house.  Flowers planted, outdoor furniture dug out and cleaned, and the patio swept and set up.  Look great and perfect for celebrating a weekend summer bash.  Are the tropical flowers beautiful?  I so miss being on Guam and all of the beautiful flowers you have there.

 

S1805 Classic Summer Bash is perfect for making the invites for a bash to welcome in the summer time.  =) Here is a great invitation to get the summer started.

It’s been a bit since we’ve had an invitation set and this is excellent.  You’ll be able to use this for anything you’ll need an invite all.

I love wood grain paper, don’t you?  Stamp the jar, then the ice cubes.  Stamp the cubes so they overlap the edge of the jar. Then fussy cut the jar out.  Stamp the lemons and cut out.  Put them on with one under the thin 3D foam tape.  A unique twist on this card is this:

The base is the wood grain with the invite.  The card part is the right side of the card where you can put a short note to each invitee.

The Free Stamp of the Month Kit when you buy the S1805 Classic Summer Bash Stamp of the Month for $5.00.

 

 

Enjoy this fun invite.  Get ready for a Class Summer Bash.    Have a wonderfully creative day!

 

 

Spring 2018 Card Buffet

Spring 2018 Card Buffet

As we march on towards Spring, the Card Buffet has been updated and is ready to go with several new card addition. Take this card for example.  It’s a different twist on shaker cards which are super popular.  Using the Oval Thin Cut dies (on sale 25% off this month or 30% in the bundle) and a 3×4″ Flip Flap, you can make this super cute shaker card.

 

Actually, using the smaller flip flaps to make shaker cards leave them thinner than if you make them with foam tape, shaker shapes, or shaker cups.  This is a nice feature when it comes to mailing them out!  =)

Join us for the Come and Play Spring 2018 Card Buffet!  Here’s a collage of some of the cards to come:

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Here’s a fun easel card using S1801 Bloom and Grow, the January Stamp of the Month(SOM).  Using the Adventure Fundamental Paper Pack, the Adventure Ribbon Pack, and the Lagoon ink, you can create this card too.  I love this paper pack, ink color, and SOM:

 

To make this:

  • Take your basic card base – 4.25 X 5.5.
  • Score the top of the card at 2 1/8″ and make a mountain fold.
  • Cut Lagoon cardstock piece at 1 7/8″ x 4.25″; Cut the Lagoon watercolor rose pattern paper at 1 5/8″ x 4.25″.  Adhere to the bottom of the front of the card.
  • Put a piece of the Lagoon ribbon in the center.  You can wrap around and tie off or cut a length about 6 1/4″ and glue dot on the backside of the front.  Glue dot on either side where you want the tie.  You should have a piece sticking up. Cut and tie off.
  • Cut another Lagoon cardstock piece 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and a White Daisy piece at 3″x 4″.  Stamp sentiment in lagoon in the center.  Assemble.  Attach on bottom part of the card only, about 1/2″ from the left side of the card.  If you tape to the top part of the fold, the card will not fold.
  • Make easel button with 1″ and 1/2″ circles and use Enamel and Glitter Duos in the center.  3D Foam Tape it up so that it will hold the fold up.

 

Remember, this month only, you can get this card kit, cut and ready to stamp, when you order the SOM for $5.00 with your $50.00 purchase!  =)
