Hey, Friend

Hello stampers!

I had a card all prepped and ready to share today, but when we got home from running errands over the weekend, we were surprised to find that Mr. Brown had been here -- on a Saturday -- and he brought me a new box of toys!

The two stamp sets I used in today's card were in that box.



The background is the new Marbled background stamp (#144772) and the greeting panel is from the Orange Blossom set (143765).  I really like both of these sets!


I don't usually share the inside of my cards (because they're not done); this time I wanted to share more of the images from the Orange Blossom set.

Powder Pink Birthday Memories

Hello stampers!


Today I'm sharing the card I recently made for my very talented sister's birthday.

I used 'my go-to' Happy Birthday Thinlits.  I layered a Powder Pink thinlit on top of a Whisper White thinlit.  I also snipped the words apart before I layered them to give an additional pop.

Soar

Hello stampers!

Normally I would save this card for closer to July 4th, but when I thought about it, if you want to make it, you'll need time, right?  So today I am sharing this year's patriotic card from my very talented sister.  She has outdone herself, once again!

My very talented sister because a first time grandma to an adorable little girl this week and her birthday is this weekend, so if you know her, give her a shout out!  She's having a big week!!!

One in a Melon

Hi everyone!

Today I made 57 cards!!!  Holy cow - I think I set a record!  53 of them are for swaps.  I will be on the shelf for a while in August and I want to be sure to have projects to share with you so I signed up for some extra swaps.  So stay tuned until the beginning of August when I will share what I made and what I receive. 

Meantime, have you seen this?  I mean, talk about super cute and screaming summer!  It's the June Paper Pumpkin kit - One in a Melon!



What you get in this month's kit - enough supplies to make 6 cards and 4 gift bags, an adorable stamp set, and Stampin' Spots in Melon Mambo and Emerald Envy.  This is truly one of the cutest kits!  Do you see the liner for the gift bag?  Adorable!  

I will have more from this kit to share with you tomorrow.  What you see here is the products made up according to the kit.  Tomorrow I will share a couple of alternatives.  

Did you know that Paper Pumpkin subscribers have the option of passing on a month?  All you have to due is log into your Paper Pumpkin account and select to skip that month.  The problem is when the kit is as awesome as this month's and then you are kicking yourself for skipping!  But, it's an option that is available, if you should need it.  If you are a subscriber and need to do that, I can help!

If you are not currently a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, consider a 3 month prepaid subscription.  Simply go to my online store and order product # 137859 for $59.00.  Plus, as an added bonus, Paper Pumpkin subscribers have the option to purchase refill kits.  Refills for One in a Melon are available NOW - while supplies last!  So, subscribe today and give Paper Pumpkin a test drive!

Thinking of You

Hello stampers,

One of the products from the new catalog that really caught my eye is the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (#144110).  This is one of those papers that I want to be the focal point of my card.  I'll be sharing more from this set because the papers in this pack are all gorgeous!!!

High Tide for Father's Day

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Today I'm sharing the Father's Day card I made for my DH.


The High Tide stamp set is one of my favorites and has quickly become one of my "go to" sets.  Is it in your collection?  If not, you're missing a good one and is worth another look!

To add some dimension to the card, I stamped the lighthouse.  Then I stamped an additional lighthouse on a separate piece of cardstock.  Then, I cut it out with my snips and adhered it to the stamped image with dimensionals.  The birds are flying out from behind the lighthouse.
