Friday Fun

I am off with my boys to another baseball tournament starting today so I thought I would share a couple videos with you instead of a project.  The first one showcases the Oh So Eclectic bundle which I just love!  It has some watercolor images as well as sentiments and line images.  The framelits are super fun as well - hope you enjoy it!

The second video is the June Paper Pumpkin kit - we never know what to expect when the little orange box arrives, it is always a surprise (and always a great one!).  This month's was so much fun to play with!

You can get your own next month by going right here!

Dazzling Pocket

I love the new Pocket Full of Sunshine stamp set which bundles with the Pocket framelits dies that is in the new catalog.  It is super cute and there are lots of possibilities...

I chose to use some Eastern Palace specialty paper along with the stamps and framelits on this card.  My pocket contains the sunglasses but you could easily add money, a gift card, pouch of some kind of candy, etc. in there.

Happy Father's Day

Now that Father's Day has come and gone I have a card to share with you.  It should probably have been one I posted last week...

I chose to base the card on the Coffee Break designer series paper and the new Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  There are two patterns of the designer series paper behind the embossed card stock and sentiment, one is on the backside of the other in the package.

I sponged the Crumb Cake I embossed with some Soft Suede ink to pop out the impressions and added a wood heart leftover from the Sending Love Embellishments package.

Once in a Lifetime

As promised, today I have the wedding gift I made for the happy couple last week.  I used the Memories and More collection and created a small scrapbook for them to add pictures and memories to of their big day!

I stared out with the Basic Black 6" x 8" album and Variety pack of 6" x 8" Photo Pocket pages.  On the cover I decorated with the Memories and More Petal Garden card pack, some ribbon from the Cupcakes and Carousels embellishment kit, a lace doily and some clear faceted gems.

The inside has the pockets filled with the Memories and More cards as well as some Petal Garden designer series paper, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive card stock.

I also used some washi tape that I had laying around and stamped a few images (some of which aren't shown) using the Floral Phrases and Birthday Blooms stamp sets.

The pages are simple and ready for memories.

Mr. & Mrs.

We missed a wedding this weekend because my boys had a baseball tournament but today I will share with you the card I made for them and tomorrow I will share the gift.

The card has a base of Crumb Cake and I added a piece of the Wood Textures designer series paper stack on the side.  The cut tree image is stamped with Soft Suede and I stamped it on a piece of Whisper White as well, colored and cut out the heart and leaves so I could add them to the main card with glue dots.

Special Celebrations

I am always drawn to sheet music whether is it paper or stamps for some reason so I decided to order the background stamp called Sheet Music right away when it came out in the new catalog.  For this card, I used it as a background image and sponged it to make it look a little weathered. 

The specialty paper behind the sheet music is from the Bundle of Love collection and there are some really pretty patterns in it. 

I added a doily and some Powder Pink finely woven ribbon behind the sentiment which is punched out with the Pretty Label punch and also sponged with ink.

Eastern Elegance

Today I have a couple cards to show you using the Eastern Elegance stamp set and coordinating thinlits, stickers, and specialty paper. 

I also used the Oh My Stars embossing folder on my background Tranquil Tide card stock on both cards.  It leaves a really good popped up impression and I really like this one - it is new to the New Idea Book and Catalog...

I chose to use Fresh Fig as my card stock and ink color and added in the coordinating colors that are in the Eastern Palace specialty paper - Dapper Denim, Tranquil Tide and Very Vanilla.

The Eastern Gold vinyl stickers really add a lot to the cards as accents, I also added a glitter enamel dot to one of the cards in the center.
