Reel Fun with Balloon Framelit

Hi Stampers,

I have had this card in my head for about a week. I should have made it last week for Grads & Dads week but just ran out of time. My husband, along with his love of beer, also LOVES to fish!! This is a perfect summer activity and today is the first day of summer!!!!


I made the bobber out of the retired balloon framelit. I cut a slit in the paper to place the bobber in. I also used "reel" fishing line too!!! LOL The sun is from the retired set Kinda Eclectic.

Hi Stampers,

One of my co-workers had to undergo an emergency tonsillectomy. I had to make a card for our department to sign. We are quite a large department with  55+ employees. My card might look kind of juvenile but I think it is cute and appropriate. I used the retired Party Pack punch (balloon) for her tonsils and the bell punch for her neck. 


I used 12 x 12 paper and cut it down to 5-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4". I glued the two pieces together to make it bigger.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #235-Mixed Drinks


Hi Stampers,

Back for a sketch pad challenge for the DOStamper Stars group. In keeping with today's theme, I made a Father's Day card for my hubby. He has worked so hard for this award card. He practices and practices to hone his skills and I am finally praising and recognizing him for his talent. I know he will appreciate this card and probably even get a little teary eyed when he sees it. 



I used Wink of Stella on the "suds" but it doesn't really show up.

I used the new Color Theory DSP and mini chevron ribbon along with the glitter enamel dots. The sentiment is part World's Best Trophy and Labeler Alphabet stamp sets. The World's Best Trophy stamp set you get 53 stamps!!! Well worth it's weight in gold IMO!!!

Father's Day Six Pack


Hi Stampers,

Today for my Grads & Dads blog post, I made a cute Father's Day six pack. That's right, my hubby's favorite---a six pack of beer!!! This card originated from the card I posted for Easter below.


Instead, I used the cute jar framelit and silver foil sheets to cut out the beer cans. TIP: When cutting out die cuts with the gold or silver foil I place a sheet of copy paper over it then place the cutting plate on top. Any marks you have on your cutting plate will not show through on the gold or silver foil paper. 

I also used the Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP again along with the new mini gift bows. BTW, I think these are SO ADORABLE!!! They are definitely one of my favorite new embellishments.


This card does fold flat and fits in a regular A2 envelope. However, with the gift bows I would probably hand deliver so they do not get ruined in the mail.


I used the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.


I also have a template for you to download for the measurements along with tutorial for the Easter Basket Card/Six Pack.

I hope you give this a try!!

Graduation Twist Card


Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to Grads & Dads week. Today, I have a graduation card. I have been meaning to try this technique for so long and just thought I don't have the time. Actually, it is not time consuming at all but VERY ADDICTING!!! My head is spinning with all the ideas for cards using this technique. I am sure there are tons of names for it but I am calling it a Twist Card.


I used the new gorgeous foil frenzy speciality DSP from the new catalog. This paper is great for 3D projects--nice and thick!!! I also used the sentiment from Happy Celebrations. Open the card and this is what you see-the banner twists and opens to this:


Before I get a bunch of emails telling me I have lost my mind I think I better explain. LOL This is the first year in a very long time we have no openhouses!!! BUT-I know of at least 2 for next year so I used 2018. I cannot believe I already have a card made a year in advance!!! THAT NEVER HAPPENS!!!LOL

I hope you give this technique a try!! They are so fun to make!!
