Two Hearts…

Many of you know my daughter and son-in-love are stationed in South Korea.  They have been there for 16 months now.  Proof that time doesn’t always fly.

Next month is their wedding anniversary and for their card to arrive on time, it needs to be in the mail a couple of weeks before the actual date.  Today’s post is their card and it will be winging its way to Seoul, South Korea next week…

Any here is how the inside looks…

Hello Fish…

Today I am whining…I mean a week of 100 degree weather is just obnoxious.  When it’s cold you can always put on more clothes.  But how much can you shed in this heat without being arrested for indecency?  Forecast reads at least four more days of this heat…

The bright side is more time creating in my studio and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing.

Here’s today’s card…

hellofish1

and a peek inside…

And you can see the envelope coordinates with the card…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecard, Dapper Denim and Thick Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Dapper Denim, Basic Black, Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral
  • Stamps:  Seaside Shore, Watercolor Wishes (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  The bubbles were made with my hot glue gun

Digits

  • The Dapper Denim layer is 3″ x 4-1/2″ attached to notecard with adhesive
  • The top Thick Whisper White layer is 2-3/4″ x 4-1/2″.  Stamp the fish in Dapper Denim on the card front and on a post it note.  Cut out image from post it note cutting just inside the outline and cover stamped image on card.  Stamp seaweed in Calypso Coral twice over the fish post it note.  Remove mask…magic!  Stamp sentiment in Basic Black.
  • Inside the card repeat the masking technique making the fish Mint Macaron.  Tip:  Save you mask inside the stamp box for later use.
  • Repeat the same technique on the envelope to coordinate with the card front.
  • Using your hot glue gun, drop small amounts on your silicone mat and let dry.  Try to make them a little smaller each time.  Tip:  You can trim the dots after dry with scissors.  Attach dots to card front to look like bubbles blown by the fish.

After yesterdays fish card this one seems every so simple.  Sometimes simple is best.

This is exactly what happens if you go outside…

Fishy Birthday

Now that SU! has the new Adhesive Strips available and we don’t have to try to use cut up dimensionals…I’m much more inclined to make “shaker cards” which I love because they are interactive and people tend to keep them longer.

I mean…I can’t imagine they would ever throw away one of my cards!

Here’s a card I’ve made for my son whose birthday is next week.  Not to worry, he NEVER reads my blog!

Normally I show you the front first…here’s what it looks like closed…

  • Now pull the strips off your scalloped frame and with it lying face down, add sequins then lay your sentiment panel face down on top of the adhesive strips.  Shaker made!  Add to card panel with multipurpose glue.
  • You can see the envelope coordinates.  I stamped the fish first and covered with a mask while stamping the seaweed then pulled off the mask…magic!

Many times I’ve said “masking” is my favorite stamping technique.

There aren’t many I’d make this card for, but my son is pretty special…

Awesome Birthday

Today’s birthday card includes a little bit of water coloring and leaving out some water coloring.  Here’s what I mean…

This method of leaving off color is generally call spotlighting.  Here’s a peek at the inside of the card…

Love that Flirty Flamingo color…especially for summer.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you in case you’d like to make this card too…

  • You can see there are a few blooms stamped on the envelope to coordinate.

I hope you will be inspired to give this fun card a go, especially if you already have this stamp set.  If you don’t, you are more than welcome to click on the “shop now” star here on my blog.

Besides my normal posting each day (except Sunday) there are many projects in various forms of completion all over the studio.  I mean every surface is covered with a mess…I mean projects.  I can’t wait to share them with you.  It’s just the way you have to roll sometimes…makes for very little sleeping.

Not By Years…

Whew?  My goodness is it ever hot here in the South!  Plus we have a 9″ rain deficit…sure could use a break in this weather.

Trying to find a time of the day to walk Zoe is a challenge and her little short legs put her right next to hot pavement.  Not walking her means she has a berserk fit at least once during the day.  We have been seen running through out neighbors sprinklers!

Today’s colors are summery to the hilt and who doesn’t love peaches and pears?

Sweets “For You”…

Have you noticed these new window sheet boxes on page 176 of the new catalog?  There are 16 boxes to a package for $7.50.  I have so many ideas running through my head using them, but today I’ve made a sweet treat box for you…

treat

treat

How cute is that?  Wouldn’t they be clever as wedding/shower favors?  And secret sweets at Christmastime?  This little treasure contains two Salted Carmel Truffles.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this one…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White Cardstock, plus Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Rich Razzleberry and Mint Macaron
  • Stamps:  Blooms & Wishes
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  5/8″ Mini Striped Mint Macaron Ribbon, Layering Squares Framelits, Clear Tiny Treat Boxes

Digits

  • Cut your DSP paper for the top layer 1-3/4″ x 10″ and 2″ x 10″ for the bottom contrasting layer and attach together with adhesive.
  • Fold your box on all score lines closing the bottom and top.  I used Tear Tape to attach the DSP to the sides of the box leaving the top open.  Just run the Tear Tape along each long edge then overlap ends.
  • Add goodies inside box.
  • Tie a piece of Mint Macaron 5/8″ Mini Striped ribbon with a bow at top.
  • Using the Layering Squares and Rich Razzleberry cut one scalloped square.  Stamp small wreath shape with Mint Macaron on Whisper White and sentiment over top in Rich Razzleberry.  Cut out with Layering Squares to fit your first Rich Razzleberry square and attach with adhesive.  Punch hole in one corner and thread one end of tied ribbon through hole.

How easy was that?…and it’s so dang cute!  The hardest part was not eating the Salted Carmel Truffles…well, maybe there should have been three in the box!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

A “B” Note…

This is the best day ever…playing with new toys in the studio and lovin’ it!

Personally I needed some notecards for myself.   I’m always making sets for others and my stash had run out.

So….The new large letters, square framelits and Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper to the rescue!

monogram

Once I had all the materials out, I made several of these and they really didn’t take that long.  They sure do come in handy!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecards, Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White Cardstock, plus Fruit Stand DSP
  • Ink:  Flirty Flamingo
  • Stamps:  Letters for You
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Layering Squares Framelits, InColor Enamel Shapes, 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, Itty Bitty Flower Punch (retired)

Digits

  • The Watermelon Wonder layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-7/8″.
  • The DSP layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ attached to the Watermelon Wonder layer with adhesive.
  • Cut a piece of 5/8″ ribbon and attach with adhesive at the bottom of these two layers.  Attach layers and ribbon to notecard front with adhesive.  Cut a small piece of ribbon and run under the piece, tie and trim.
  • Cut the scallop square from Watermelon Wonder with Layering Squares Framelit.  Stamp letter on Thick Whisper White Cardstock in Flirty Flamingo and attach with adhesive to scallop square.  Punch a flower in Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder and add with glue dots to your letter.  Place Enamel Shape in centers.  I used the adhesive strips to attach the letter square to the card front because I like the height they give…but you could use dimensionals single or doubled.
  • And you can see small strips of DSP were glued with multipurpose glue to the envelope…

So glad to have these ready to use…what demonstrator runs out of cards?  Well…we do!

All the beds have been stripped and the house dug through for a good cleaning since “the Littles” left.  We are about to get back to normal here.  It’s good and bad…and too darn quiet!  They are off today on the Disney Cruise so I’m sure they aren’t missing me nearly as  much.

Seascape Birthday…

After spending eight days with “the Littles” it felt so nice to be in my studio this afternoon creating…But not nearly as much fun as we’ve had this past week.

We were busy from first light until after dark with all kinds of activities.  I’m talking about catching lightening bugs, golfing, swimming, nature center, rock climbing, y-bike riding, playing with neighborhood kids, crafts, painting by number and driving the golf cart in the evenings.  Fun every minute…

But I did miss creating each day and talking to all of you.  I hope you missed me just a little.

Yesterday my order was delivered and now there are many new stamp sets and designer series papers, framelits, thinlets and ribbon too.  So much to share…

Here’s a masculine birthday card for you today…

and a peek at how it opens and the inside…

The circular greeting tucks behind the starfish when closed for a different look.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Dapper Denim cardstock, plus water color paper and Serene Scenery DSP Stack
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Pool Party and Dapper Denim
  • Stamps:  Picture Perfect and Wetlands
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Burlap Ribbon, Layering Circles Framelits, Aqua Pen

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 6-3/8″, scored at 2-1/8″ to make the front flap
  • The Dapper Denim layer on the front flap is 5-1/4″ x 1-7/8″ with a 5″ x 1-5/8″ Serene Scenery DSP attached with adhesive.  Add Burlap ribbon with adhesive before adding to card base front with multipurpose glue.
  • Stamp starfish from Picture Perfect stamp set.  First layer stamp off Sahara Sand.  Second layer straight Sahara Sand.  “fussy cut” and add to panel with dimensionals on three points leaving two without so the circular greeting can tuck under.
  • The Dapper Denim inside layer is 5-1/4″ x 4″.
  • The Whisper White cardstock layer is 5″ x 3-3/4″.  Add a layer of DSP over the right side  of Whisper White that measures 5″ x 2-1/4″ with adhesive.  Add a strip of Burlap Ribbon with adhesive at the seam of the DSP and Whisper White.  Add this layer to the Dapper Denim layer with multipurpose glue.
  • Let’s make the greeting layer.  Use the largest scalloped circle for the Dapper Denim layer.  Use the next size circular framelit to cut a water color paper circle.  Use the Aqua Painter to paint the sky Pool Party with a little Dapper Denim at the bottom of the sky.  Use a Kleenex to dab a couple of clouds while it’s still wet.  Using Sahara Sand paint the sand leaving a space between the sky and sand with no color.  Tip:  You can tip the paper to make the colors “run” for a nice affect.  When dry, stamp birds from Wetlands stamp set in Soft Suede.  Add water color circle to Dapper Denim circle with multipurpose glue.  Score a portion of the right edge of circle and tuck behind the inside panel.  Use multipurpose glue to attach.  You may want to trim a straight edge on the water color paper rather than folding behind.
  • Add this whole layer to the  inside the card with multipurpose glue.
  • You can see I also stamped the birds on the envelope and used the Aqua Painter Pen to add some Dapper Denim water underneath.

Now that my first card is made after over a week, I think I’ll jump into this order box and see what develops.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow and check it out…

Today I’m inky…and HaPpY!

Hello…

And a HaPpY Independence Day to all of you!  We are celebrating big time in our little community here at Hampton Creek with a parade this morning including a fire truck, decorated carts, bikes and dogs.  So much fun and the parade was much bigger than last year’s.  Tonight there is a cookout and fireworks to continue the celebrating.

But I wanted to take a moment and post today’s card and let you know I’m taking the week off to spend with “the Littles”.  I’ve never in the last three years taken time off from blogging, but with Sweetums gone last week and most of this one, I’ve fallen so far behind.

When I get back my order will be here and I’ll be energized to show you new projects with new products.

Here’s today’s card…
