3D Seaside Shore

Lazydays

Hi Stampers,

Back for another Lazy Days of Summer post. I really like how this "card" turned out. I love the 3D feel it has to it. The only adjustment I would make next time is to make it longer. It does have a lot of fussy cutting but who cares. Cardmaking relaxes me and it is a lot cheaper than therapy (well, maybe *Ü*) The best part is -- it lays flat for shipping and fits into Stampin' Up! envelopes.

I stamped the sentiment on the back of the aquarium.

Hi Stampers,

Today's card uses a different fold than the card from the other day.

I think it is a cute card for someone finishing swimming lessons, summer birthday or who just loves to swim!!! In the summer heat, who doesn't?

Thanks for stopping by!!!

 


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #241- Oh So Eclectic

#241

Hi Stampers,

This week's challenge is a Home Sweet Home challenge and I reached for my new stamp set Oh So Eclectic!!!! I have been wanting to use this and I also incorporated it into my summer theme for this week.

First off, I made my own DSP. I just took colors from the photo, inked up my stamps and went to town on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I then traced my flip flop template and cut out by hand. I have even included a template for you and the text. I was stumped for finding just the right sentiment. So, Voila!!! I typed my own!!! Enjoy!!!

DSCN0145

All I could find on the internet were flip flop templates that were too large for Stampin' Up! envelopes so I made my own. If you cut a card base of 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and fold in half, as if you were making a card, place the one template on the fold line, trace and then cut out. I hope this makes sense (?) As always, if you have any questions please feel free to shoot me an email. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Here it is open.

Berry Burst is my FAV new in color this year but Lemon Lime Twist is a close second, so of course, I had to make one in those colors too!!! LOL I popped the toe thong up on dimensionals to give more of a 3D effect. I think these are so cute!!!

You are a Lifesaver

Hi Stampers,

For today's blog post  and enjoying the Lazy Days of Summer, I made a life preserver card. Just make your card base and punch a 1-3/4" hole where your head would pop out. Again, getting much use of this sentiment from Seaside Shore.

Lazy Days of Summer

Lazydays

Hi Stampers,

I thought for the next 2 weeks I would have summery cards to show you. It seems like the summer goes by so fast and we want to enjoy every ounce of sunshine we can get!!! So many different activities to partake in. The list could go on and on...

So for my first card I chose to make a snorkel mask. I wish now I would have remembered to use a dryer sheet on the window sheet so my sand wouldn't have stuck to it and smeared. Oh well.... the life of a cardmaker.....

I stamped and fussy cut out a fish and some shells. I also added some sequins.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #237-Window Box Thinlits Lantern

#237

Hi Stampers,

I really like the patriotic colors in the above photo. In staying with the theme, I chose to make a paper lantern out of the window box thinlits. The first one I made I also cut Whisper White pieces to go on the lantern and it made it a little heavy. It would be great to be hung up but not sitting on a table. 

DSCN0133

DSCN0134

This is the second one and I only made one window box "frame" for the bottom. I also didn't attach a second layer of cardstock. You could attach string to the top to hang it or just use as a table decoration.

These are the cute little battery operated tealights I found at Dollar Tree.

Wishing you an early safe Fourth of July!!!

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!!!!

DSCN0089

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.

OUCH!!!

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. 

DSCN0107

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

#235

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. 

DSCN0064

DSCN0065

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!!!

REMEMBER: You can order everything to make this card in my online store
