Father's Day Card....#GDP142

Hello everyone!  Happy Father's Day! I hope you are enjoying your day!! I know it's Sunday and I don't  usually blog on the weekends, but I wanted to share the Father's Day card that I made for my husband!  He's a great dad and loves our children so much...I am blessed and oh so grateful!

I also want enter it into the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge which ends tomorrow!  You should enter too!  Here's a link to join the fun Global Design Project ...I hop you will!


Here's the sketch...
Image may contain: text
...and here is my creation!  My card base is Early Espresso with a 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" Whisper White mat.  The 4" X 5 1/4" Crumb Cake cardstock is embossed with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder! I mounted the weaved Wood Textures dsp onto a Early Espresso circle which is cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Happy is cut with the Happy Birthday Thinlit from Wood Textures dsp. I stamped the trees using the Rooted In Nature stamp set onto Watercolor paper.The colors I chose are Balmy Blue, Tranquil Tide, Old Olive and Garden Green.  I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set to stamp the Father's Day sentiment and punched it out with the Classic Label punch.  I tied Linen Thread into a triple bow to the end of the sentiment. Next I added a Metalic Brad to a Corrugated Heart from the Corrugated Elements embellisments and attached it over the Linen Thread with Mini Dimensionals!  I LOVE it...and so did my husband! 

Well...that's it! Have a WONDERFUL rest of your Sunday...hoping it's a great start to the rest of the week!  I'll be back tomorrow with a FUN "Make-It Monday"

I love the Scattered Sequins embossing folder...that's the background on the Basic Black and Silver Foil cardstock.  Makes it FUN and FESTIVE!


More of the Scattered Sequins embossing folder along with the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  I used the Silver Foil Paper as a background and for the word...and OF COURSE...added a bit of bling!

Happy Birthday - Big Shot Embossing Mats

Hello everyone!  Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all well!  I have a bit up a tummy ache this morning...ughh!  Hope it passes soon! I'm gonna quickly blog so I can go lay down for a bit! 
Here's a FUN card I made for Manly Monday...a challenge we do on a team Facebook page.  I used the Happy Birthday Thinlit along with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats!  These mats are COOL and a great addition to the Big Shot.  They turn framelits and thinlits into embossing folders!  I also used the Striped Scallops embossing folder on the Coastal Cabana background piece of cardstock.  The balloons are punched with the Balloon Bouquet punch from Basic Black cardstock and Share What You Love designer paper! The colors are Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive and Basic Black.  Super cute and super easy card to make!

Little Elephant

Hello there everyone!  It's another BEAUTIFUL day...hope it is where you are too!  Thanks for stopping in today to see what's up in my paper crafting world! Today is the last day of school!  YAY!!! I'm so excited!  My son got a job at our local ACE Hardware and my daughter will be making her cupcakes.  We have one vacation planned in August! YAY!!  It should be a relaxing summer!

I had a friend who needed seven cards and one was a birthday card for a baby.  Here's what I created for her!  My card base is the new Blueberry Bushel and measures 8 1/2" X 5 1/2".  The first mat is Whisper White and is 4" X 5 1/4".  The next mat is Mango Melody and is 3 3/4" X 5".  I embossed the Mango Melody piece using the Oh My Stars embossing folder.  Next I cut a Whisper White circle frame using my Stitched Shapes framelits. I used the same framelits to cut the oval as well.  The I chose the Little Elephant stamp set and stamped the strip across the oval in Mango Melody as well as the balloons.  The adorable elephant is from the same set and is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.  The ribbon is 1/8" Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain.  I'm looking at my photo as I type this and it's kind of dark...making the blue look like Night of Navy.  Both would work actually but I wanted you to see the NEW color.  I can't take another photo because I've already delivered the card...sorry about that.  Still its a cute birthday card for a little guy...FESTIVE and FUN!

Hey...thanks again for stopping by!  Have a FANTASTIC day and I'll be back tomorrow with more inspiration!

Tuesday’s Tip - Bokeh Dots and Dandelion Wishes

Hello everyone!  Oh my goodness I am so late posting, but it's STILL TUESDAY so I guess I'm ok!  It has been a wonderfully busy day!  I met a girlfriend for coffee at 8:30 this morning...we talked and talked and talked.  Before I knew it, it was 12:30.  I haven't gotten together with her in such a long time and it was WONDERFUL!  Then I get in my car and there is a text from my son on my phone..."where are you?"...so I called him and asked where are you?!  He was on my front porch...what a nice surprise!  I've come to realize that people and relationships are far more important than making cards or videos...even though I'm doing this as a business and love what I do...I love people more.  Maybe that's part of why I love what I do...because of the relationships that I've built!

Well...I just had to share this video with you!  It's such a fun card!  I hope you love it as much as I do!



Here is that card that INSPIRED me!  I think it is absolutely beautiful!  

The demonstrator is Helga Hopin and here is a link to her blog!  

http://stempelkunst-by-helga.typepad.com/

I hope you'll go there and be inspired as well!









Here is my card!  I LOVE it!  I used the Bokeh Dots and Dandelion Wishes stamp sets (LOVE THEM)!! I chose to use Grapefruit Groove ink.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image onto a 3 1/2" X 4 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock then mounted it onto a 3 5/8" X 4 5/8" piece of Grapefruit Groove cardstock.  My Whisper White card base is 5 1/2" X 8 1/2".  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink.  Don't forget that bow...tied with Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon!!





Here is the inside of my card.  The Grapefruit Groove mat is 4" X 5 1/4" and the Whisper White mat is 3 1/4" X 5" and is stamped with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set. 







Below are the images I stamped in different colors...Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody and Shaded Spruce!



I hope you enjoyed the video...I sure enjoyed making it!  Thanks SO MUCH for following my blog and my YouTube Channel!  I LOVE sharing what I do!

Wood Texture Weaving - Masculine Birthday Card

Hello everyone!  Did you enjoy that Facebook Hop last night?  There were some FUN ideas!  Today I want to show you another card I created with the weaving technique I shared yesterday.  


I really like how it turned out as well.  I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set for the sentiment.  It is stamped onto a circle cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (LOVE these).  I tie some Black Baker's Twine and Copper Trim at the top so it wasn't so stark.  The black circle frame is also cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits...I put one inside of the other and ran it through the BigShot to create the frame. The weaving, is again created with the Wood Texture designer paper.  My card base is Early Espresso with a layer of Crumb Cake that is embossed with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder!  This makes a GREAT birthday card for a guy!




Well, thanks so much for stopping by today!  ENJOY every minute of your weekend!  Hope to see you back here on Monday!
