19875213_10212549275223515_8970671650778675054_n

Cutting & Scoring: 

  • Crumb Cake – 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”
  • Crumb Cake – 1 ½” x 4” plus 1 ½” Circle Punch
  • Whisper White – 3 ¾” x 5” plus scrap for leaves and sentiment
  • Peekaboo Peach – 4” x 5 ¼”

Instructions:

  • Stamp the full fruit, wider end of lemon at the top, on the right side of the 4” x 5 ¼” Peekaboo Peach cardstock (you will be using this piece as a layer so stay within the border).  Punch with the Lemon Builder punch.
  • Stamp (2) cut oranges on the remaining area of the Peekaboo Peach.  If you don’t have enough room you can stamp over the cut area because you only need half an orange slice.  Punch with the 1 ¾” circle punch.  Cut one of the orange in half.
  • Stamp the leaves and “Life’s Short” in Emerald Envy ink.  Punch out leaves.  Punch sentiment with 1 ⅜ ” Circle punch.
  • Stamp “Squeeze it for all it’s worth” in Emerald Envy ink at the bottom right of the Whisper White cardstock.  Adhere onto the 4” x 5 ¼” Peekaboo Peach.  Adhere to the card base.
  • Run the 1 ½” x 4” Crumb Cake cardstock through the Pinewood Planks Embossing folder.
  • Rub Crumb Cake ink over the embossed image to make it pop.  Adhere to the card front.
  • Adhere the leaves to the full orange.  Adhere the full orange slice to the card with SNAIL.  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the full orange and adhere.  Add the orange segment with a Stampin’ Dimensional, covering the tip of the fruit to hide the end (will look more like an orange).

Summer Fun - Card #2!!!!

DSCN0114w

Here's the other card I was telling you about on Tuesday - I love this one too! All the bright chairs are screaming SUMMER FUN - my FAVORITE time of year!!! I would almost take 2 summer seasons instead of winter! Almost...because you know how I love the season of giving, and of course...PRESENTS! LOL!

You can see in this close up that I used the FLICKING TECHNIQUE with my marker to add some flickers of black. It's a great way to tone down the white - don't you think?

DSCN0112w

Doesn't this just look like heaven? I call my back yard "my little piece of heaven in Menasha, Wisconsin." I love it so much!!! The pool was the real selling point for me when we bought this house almost 20 years ago. The house isn't much...but my pool is everything!

DSCN0110w

Dimensions:

  • Melon Mambo 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2 & scrap
  • Basic Gray 4 x 5-1/4
  • Whisper White 3-3/4 x 5 & scrap

Don't you think these look like a whole lot of summer fun? You can see all the details for the other card HERE.

  Joke

 A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology courses. She started her class by saying, 'Everyone who thinks they're stupid, stand up!' After a few seconds, Little Harold stood up. The teacher said, 'Do you think you're stupid, Harold?' 'No, ma'am, but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself!'

Summer Fun - LOVE THIS CARD!!!

DSCN0119w

Happy August...can it be August already? Where did July go???

Doesn't this just scream SUMMER FUN??? That's my pool in the background! I think this card gets my point across in a very colorful way - JUST RELAX AND BREATHE! I had a blast making it. I love bright colors and this chair is the BOMB. The Colorful Seasons bundle is a MUST HAVE for every stamper. When you place a $50 order with me - I have a 14 card tutorial that I'll give you as a gift so you'll have a bunch of ideas right from the start! 

DSCN0117w

I used the WATERCOLOR WASH background stamp in Smokey Slate ink on the Whisper White layer and stamped the greeting over that in Memento Black ink. Then I wrapped the Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine around the white layer 3 times and tied it in a bow on the side. I took a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue and glued each chair to the next and then adhered them to the card front with little snippets of Dimensionals to pop them up. Easy Peasy!!!!

Watch for another SUMMER FUN card that I made on Thursday!

Dimensions:

  • Bermuda Bay 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2 & scrap
  • Basic Black 4 x 5-1/4
  • Whisper White 3-3/4 x 5
  • Scraps of Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twist & Melon Mambo

  2. Stamp “Happy Birthday” in memento black ink on the bottom of the Wisher White piece. Stamp lemon slice 3 times in Lemon Lime on the left side (make sure you only do halves, otherwise it will be visible through the glass). Adhere White piece to Basic Black CS and then to card base. Set aside.
  3. Let’s create a glass. Lightly mark velum at ¾ from both sides of 3” side (red marks on a diagram below). Using paper trimmer – cut from one corner to a marked point on one side, repeat on another side. Use scoring blade now and create a score line ¼” from a side of the ‘glass’ by aligning a side with ¼ mark on a trimmer. You should get following shape:

Green indicated scored lines. Apply tear tape between the scored line and edge. Fold on a scored line. Sponge the ‘glass’ with sponge dauber and Lemon Lime Twist ink on inside, leave some white space on top.

4. Remove tear tape and adhere glass to the card front from step 2. Try to make a shape little round.

5. Stamp 2 more slices on scrap piece of whisper white in Lemon Lime Twist ink. Punch them with 1 ¾” punch. Cut a slit from a side to the center on first piece of lime. Add dimensionals to the back and decorate the glass with it. Cut 3 pieces from second lime. Add dimensionals and add to the bottom of the glass on the right side.

6. Adhere ‘straw’ inside the glass.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

PPBlog Hop

DSCN0054w

Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!! I am so excited to have you join in the hop whether you are stopping by from the amazing Rick Adkins blog or this is your first stop, I'm super excited to have you here!

This month's kit POSITIVELY PICTURESQUE is so cute! I love the little images and the greetings and those die cut card fronts are the BOMB!

The anticipation is REAL PEOPLE! I love getting my PAPER PUMPKIN KIT in the mail every month because I LOVE SURPRISES! Here's July's kit:

Paper Pumpkin July

Here are the alternate projects that I came up with - they were so fun to make!'

DSCN0055w

I took the Die Cut layer that comes in the kit and trimmed it down to 2-7/8" wide to use as a panel in the middle of my card. A little Pink Powder ink and the images down the sides of the panel really pop don't they?

DSCN0029W

Dimensions:

  • Powder Pink 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
  • Whisper White 2-7/8 x 5-1/4

I followed the same theme for my votive candle box too...

DSCN0041W

Dimensions:

  • Powder Pink 8-1/4 x 3, scored at 3/4, 3-3/4, 4-1/2 & 7-1/2 on the long side and 3/4 & 2-1/4 on the short side
  • Lime patterned paper 1-1/4 x 2-3/4

Check out a step-by-step video showing you how to make this easy little box and also some great tips about my cards here:

 What a sweet & easy gift to make and give:

2017 July SUW

For this card I used the pre-printed note card - it comes with the Lemon Lime Twist watercolor swish on it - I added some Washi Tape stripes to my die cut heart and a little bow in the middle - kind of charming right? My wooden HOORAY is popped up on Dimensionals.
