More Paper Pumpkin fun

So here is another card that uses components of the June Paper Pumpkin kit... 

The leaves, the yellow washed background "tag", and the striped paper from the gift bag.... were all still from the kit... So much fun to play with!

June Paper Pumpkin

Yesterday my June Paper Pumpkin arrived and I couldn't wait to make cards with the supplies...  I  LOVE the watermelon stamp!

And as of right now I made 2 cards that were not planned out in the kit... hah!

Here is my first one:

I don't know if you can see it, but the striped paper behind the white card is actually the gift bag cut apart. And the pink layer with the seeds on it is the tissue paper from the kit

And then the little printed card with the pineapples and melon pieces was to busy as pictured so I made my version and like it much better

I still have lots of other elements left over so I am planning to sit down tomorrow and use those up right away!

Layered Leaves

Ohhhhh - I just got new toys in and simply could not wait to use the dynamic embossing folder "Layered Leaves".

I kept it simple so you all could see how detailed and gorgeous the background is...

Electronic Paper crafting with Stampin' Up! Supplies

I needed a birthday card for a friend who is an avid fisherman and gasp I discovered I must have sold my retired stamp set with the fish and the boat etc...   BUT my electronic cutter (Cameo by Silhouette) came to the rescue!

The whole card was cut from Pear Pizzazz CS and then I sponged in Island Indigo around the fishes to create dark blue water...

Here is a look from the back.. un-inked

And here is the inside

BTW, the electronic cut file of the fish card was purchased online and I am not able to share...

 It's an easel card... and I had to use my computer to personalize the sentiment...

OSAT Blog Hop – All About Men

This is my first time participating in the "One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop" and I am so excited to see what everyone came up with for this month's theme, which is "All About Men".

Here is a close up of the masculine card I made:

I used our new Eastern Beauty Bundle with the matching DSP. Which made the color choice very easy for me.
Since I don't have a father to spoil anymore, I decided to do something 'nice" for my hubby and won't even wait until father's day to give it to him... because we don't have kids... we make our special days as we feel them needed. We have a very fun relationship and like to pick on one another, so I am sure he will appreciate the gift! It's a pair of reading glasses because he is picking on me that I have a pair in every room. He needs them too, you know and borrows mine. And when I reached for the ones next to the bed and they were not in there trusted spot, I knew what to do! He's getting a pair to keep on his side. Of course I had to make a pretty and matching little pouch/box:

I did measure the glasses and then made the pouch/box to fit. However you are not limited to use it to put reading glasses in it LOL. Think chocolates! So in case you would like to re-create one, here are the measurements!

The  pouch/box DSP is 7 by 9
Place in Simply Scored in portrait and score at: 1 3/3  +  3  +  4 3/4  +  6
then rotate it to be in landscape and score at 3/4 on both sides

The wrapper DSP is 3 1/2 by 6 1/2 and follows the same score lines as the box to fit around...

Please make sure you'll go through the whole Blog Hop to see all the wonderful creations. Next in line is Kelly Acheson   , you can get to her blog by clicking the NEXT button below. If you ever get lost or would like to skip around, there is a list of all the participants below the button

    VERY limited supplies

    I've had this idea in my head for a while and today I finally sat down to try it out... no stamping at all this time...

    I used our adhesive sheets 2 ways... a) to adhere the words to the card and b) add silver glitter to the word Happy... 

    I had cut the word "Happy" out 3 times and "Birthday" only once, but in watercolor paper so I could use my Aqua Painter and inks on it... that was fun!
