Razzleberry Lemonade

I love, love, love our new Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper (115675). You can purchase this wonderful paper beginning tomorrow afternoon. Our new Catalog is available on July 1st. Call or email me today to find out how you can get this wonderful catalog for free. This card was made using two of the papers plus the new Crushed Curry (115319) and Melon Mambo (115320) in-color cardstock. I love both of these. The stamp set is A Beautiful Thing (113618). I also used the Scallop circle (109043), 1 1/4 circle (104403) and the 1 3/8 circle (104401) punches. Enjoy!

Golf Table Decorations

Several friends were in charge of the table decorations for a guest day at their golf course. We used the Big Shot to make the Bag w/Scallops. They were made with So Saffron cardstock. We ran the Whisper White cardstock through the texturz plate to create the dots on the "golf ball". The accent color is Pixie Pink. We punched two holes and then put a golf tee through the holes. A golf ball was inside. So easy and the ladies really enjoyed receiving them. Enjoy!

Ohio State Birthday Card

My neighbor loves Ohio State. I found some ribbon at Pat Catan's that is scarlet and grey and says Ohio State. I used Real Red and Basic Grey cardstock. I ran the grey piece through the Big Shot texturz plate. The O is from the Serif Essentials big shot letters. I really think he will like this. Enjoy!

Flower Pot Card

The flower pot cards have been all over the place, including here. Patty Bennett (are you seeing a pattern here) has come up with another wonderful way to use the flowerpot. She had a great card on her blog that uses a smaller flowerpot. Here is my version. I used the new color Dusty Durango which will be available NEXT WEDNESDAY!!!! It also used Dusty Durango ink and marker. I used Kraft cardstock for the first layer and sponged the edges with Dusty Durango. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes which also will be available on July 1st. I added a Celery Cord button. The stamp set for the flowers is Bloomin' Beautiful. Enjoy!

Card Organizer

ON July 7th we will be making this wonderful card organizer. I got the original idea from Patty Bennett. This will use retired designer paper, it's a wonderful way to use up any leftovers you may have. Each month has a pocket to hold the cards you've created and have waiting to send to friends and family. Call or email to reserve your spot in class. Enjoy!

No new cards today

No new cards today as I am busy making my convention swaps. My wonderful sister's at Stampin'Addicts will be swapping for me in Salt Lake. I need to have them finished and in the mail by the middle of July. Don't be surprised if you are at convention and "see" me. There will be a flat dixie on a painters stick enjoying all the fun activities. I am sad to miss convention this year but we are saving up for an Alaskan Cruise next year. I hope to have a project to share tomorrow. Enjoy!

Ice Cream Cone

Here is the second of four cards we completed in class on Tuesday for our Kids Birthday Cards. This one uses the scalloped punch and the texture plates. You can't tell from the picture, but the cone was run thru the Texturz backgrounds #1 to create the cone effect. Hugs & Wishes stamp set was used and the cardstock colors are Naturals Ivory, Close to Cocoa, and Pretty in Pink. This card was adapted from a card by Chris Pirotrowski (I received this card as a swap and the name is blurred) Enjoy!

Wild about you

For my kids birthday class today we did this card using the Wild About You stamp set. This set is retiring and you only have until Tuesday, June 30th to order it. The DSP is Summer Picnic which is already retired. I loved that paper and bought a ton. I'm now using it up in a variety of ways. We missed you in class. Next Tuesday we are doing the Celebrate banner which is in a post from last week.Sorry about the smudge, it was dropped on a stamp pad. I usually put my samples in a plastic sleeve, but didn't today. Ah, such is life. Enjoy!

Beautiful Roses

I'm going to continue the flower posts. Will have cards to post after my class tomorrow. We are doing 8 kids birthday cards, 2 each of 4 different designs. I have one person signed up for my new In Color club and would love to have "many" more. Still have a week to sign up and to order anything from the last chance stamps and accessories lists. Let me know. These are the beautiful roses in front of my courtyard. I used them as the idea for the watercolor roses I did using Patty Bennett's directions. The directions can be found on her site here. I love the technique and have made many of them. Enjoy!

I got the idea for these cards from Patty Bennett's blog. She used the Bella Bleu designer paper. I didn't have any so I used Parisian Breeze. I love the effect of these cards and the fact that they are so easy to create. Add a box and you have a wonderful easy last minute gift. I'm not sure why my pictures are getting out of wack on the bottom, but it is happening with all my memory cards. I guess it's time for a new camera. YEA! Enjoy!

Spring Lily

My daughter won a Lily at a shower last fall and it really did not look good. I said let's just plant it and see what happens. As you can see, it really took to the place it was planted. I counted 40 blooms. What great color. I won't have any card pictures until mid-week as I am completing the samples for my summer classes. Enjoy your Sunday.

Good morning. I've been having problems adding more than one picture to the blog, so here is the inside of the gift card holder. It has a place to attach a gift card (with a glue dot) and to write your sentiment. I love these. Enjoy!

Gift card holder Challenge

I am a proud member of Stampin Addicts. See that little button on the right side of my post. We have daily challenges and this was Holly's Gift card holder. She makes the most fantastic video's to help with the challenges. Here is my take with two of the new papers available to you on July 1st. It was so easy. I chose not to color in the cupcakes, thought they looked fine uncolored. Enjoy!

Flower Pot Gift card holder

This type of card/invitation is very hot right now. Almost every blog I visit has one and I didn't want to be left out. I sorta case'd one from Amy Bell's blog here. She has wonderful projects. The center piece with the two flowers pulls out and you stamp/write your invitation there. Change the colors and it would make a cute baby shower invitation. Enjoy!
