Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  A heartfelt thanks to all of you wonderful peeps for being being so supportive of my business!

Thanks A Bunch

Thanks A Bunch

Here is the same card, in two different versions by changing the color of ink that is used to distress the sentiment.  Placement of the bow in a different place, different doodling, and changing out the gem colors and you go from masculine to feminine.

 

 

Add coloring to the background, either all of it or just parts of it, and you change up the design again.  We’ll have a few of these on the card buffet for you to personalize to meet your needs.  Coloring is the rage and this card (and the stamp set) allows you to participate in this fun.

Here’s some close ups:

Scrappy First Home

Scrappy First Home

This card is Created from Central Park scraps, thus the name Scrappy first home. The background for the card is knotted on black I’m sorry Pacifica paper. The sentiment is stamps from the July stamp of the month s1807 Highlight Reel.

My friend Jon picked out the house and tree and I fussy cut them from a background and texture paper that had a variety of different houses on it.  I use 3D foam tape both the regular and thin to create dimension so that the tree look like it was behind the house a little bit.

With some leftover Gold Shimmer trim, Central Park sequins,  gold glitter gems, and gray twine, I was able to embellish the card.  The pile of left over embellishments is just as big as the scrap box!  LOL.  Twine is held down with the mini-stapler!  This is such a quick and efficient way to adhere the twine to the card.

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  This scrappy First Home card helped to use some of my scraps up.  =)

Stampaganza  is going strong with some great deals on stamps.  A suggestion I have is to make multiple orders if you are buying different size stamp sets.  Put all the same size stamp sets on one order.  This way, if you order 3 D-size stamps, one of the D sets is free.  If there’s a B-size in the order, it will be the free one.   You’ll get the best bang for your buck this way.

Solos

They have brought back the Alphabet Solos and Number Solos for this sale and I love mine (which I’ve had for years and continue to use).

 

A Favorite

One of my favorite stamp sets is A1220 Be You:

From the 50 Card Swap, Carol T created this awesome card with the Central Park Paper Pack!

Sweep ink from the reinkers or from the tray on the ink pads to create the watercolor background.  Stamp in Memento ink over the top.  Just love the look and the sentiment:

Happy Day

Happy Day

It’s a happy day when I get to use my scraps.   At the end of a pack, I always have some scraps, don’t you?  Here’s a card using those scraps up. I used scraps from the Central Park paper along with some scraps for my scrap bucket to make this card.

There’s a sheet in each paper pack that has these great cards on it formats, titles, and journaling. With one of them I created this “Happy Day” card. It has a fun watercolor balloon on it and says happy day. Using some scrap background and texture paper to help create the base, some scraps of cranberry and gold glitter paper, this came together fairly quickly.

Embellish with some leftover Central Park sequins and put gold glitter gems in the middle of the sequins. The background paper is Linen, which is a gray color. The gray twine helps pull that in. The gold shimmer brush adds some flare to the balloon.

July things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Enjoy the Happy Day card and try to use those scraps up!
