Follow My Blog!

Hope to see you around!

Update: After playing with Bloglovin these last few days I believe I will stay with them. I love that when you click on a blog post it brings you back to the original blog. What reader did you decide to go with?

Happy Father’s Day!


Happy Father's Day

Yes, I realize I am a day late as Father’s Day was yesterday. But I didn’t want to post this until I had given it to my husband. Yesterday was a busy day for us so now is the first chance that I got to accomplish this.

I had a difficult time coming up with a Father’s Day card as I don’t have a lot of masculine stamps. But I knew I had this Navigation dsp that is now retired and the Sail Away stamp that had a tendency to go with the paper. I ended up not using the Sail Away stamp. On a side note if you are interested in the navigation look there is still the stamp The Open Sea (w $26.95 128454 c $18.95)

I sat down to see what I could create. I looked at the paper first to see what I could come up with. I did look at Retro Sketches to see if it would help me get inspired. The end result was this. I ended up fussy cutting the anchor from the dsp. I used Linen Thread ($4.50 104199 in natural)  to emphasize the rope that was on the anchor. Backing it up with Basic Black ($6.95 121045) cardstock and the card base with Midnight Muse.($6.95 126843) The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. (w $36.95 128748 c $26.95 127802) The faux stitches was done with a uni-ball Signo Gel Pen ($3.95 105021) The brads are retired but I bet our Candy Dots and Candy Dots Brad Bases would give the same effect. ($5.95 Neutrals 130934)  ($2.95 132293)

Hope those that celebrate Father’s Day had a good one yesterday or whenever you celebrate it if it wasn’t yesterday!  Thank you for stopping by!

Gingham Garden Box

Gingham Garden Box
I meet once a month with a group of ladies to scrapbook. We work on our own projects or someone will teach us something. Last night we were taught how to make boxes. After I made the box that they provided I decided to do my own version with Stampin’ Up! supplies. This would be a fun box to put a gift in or to keep some cards in.
The material I used was Gingham Garden DSP ( 129310 $10.95) Midnight Muse Stampin’ Write Marker. (You can get a pack of the 2012-2014 pack of In Colors for $14.95 126856) and the new In Color 2013-2015 Card Stock. Working with paper and what you can do with it is endless!

CelebrateThe other day it was my brother in law’s birthday. In being a cardmarker of course I had to make him a card. So this is what I came up with. I thought I did a pretty good job in it.
I used mostly retired product. The dsp is Sycamore Street from Salebration this year. So if you have any left in your stash you could always make a mat for your card. The stamp is also from Salebration and is the Feeling Sentimental set. The ink is Midnight Muse. ( 126860 $5.95) I inked the embossing folder Honeycomb ( 129378 $7.95)
I picked the telephone box in particular as my brother in law is a Doctor Who fan. Its not quite the Tardis but it’s close enough. Thanks for looking and have a creative day!

Gingham Garden Art

My upline Patty Bennett issued a challenge for us to make frame art with a new dsp from the  new catalog that just came out. This was my take on it. I had a lot fun with it and it wasn’t hard at all. I may very well make more once I get new dsp! 
I used Gingham Garden, Cardstock is Strawberry Slush and I also used rhinestones and Washi Tape from Gingham Gardengingham gardenI also used the 1 1/4 punch and Postage punch put all in a 5x7 frame.
Gingham without Frame
gingham with sun in frame
gingham sun no frameAnother one I made with the same dsp Gingham Garden and Washi Tape. I also used Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantalope marker and Pistachio Pudding cardstock. This time this picture was put in a 4x6 frame. The punch I used was our 1 3/4 circle punch.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope this has inspired you to try your hand in this!
