Swirly Thank you!

Hi Everyone! It's official, today is the last day of school here! Let the summer vacation begin!! I hope you all have crafty plans for the summer! (This year during the summer I will only be posting 3 days a week instead of 6. I hope you all understand!)

Today is all about thanking the wonderful teacher's out there that do such a great job with our kids!

Not sure about you, but Swirly Bird is one of those stamp sets that are completely out of my comfort zone. Because you mostly random stamp which is not my thing! Getting better at it though!

I completely cased this one! Yep, I did! 


Four You, Thank You

See those small gold dots?? There are embossed! Cool or what!? I made them using this really cool Versa Marker that one of my customers gave me for Christmas! Thank you!

Four You, Thank You

We made this teacher an Aromatherapy bracelet too! 

Teachers Gift, Thank you gift

Teachers Gift, Thank you gift

Teachers Gift, Thank you Gift

As you can see I tried to make the card have the same colours as the bracelet. I think it worked out great! 

Of course this pretty little bracelet needed a pretty little package. It was supposed to be the same package as the other Aromatherapy Bracelet that we made for another teacher, however I forgot one score line. So, it turned into this!

Gift Bag, 3D Project, teachers gift, aromatherapy bracelet, thank you gift

I stamped all over the Whisper White cardstock. I changed it a little from the card.

Teachers gift, aromatherapy bracelet, thank you gift 3D project, gift bag

It's a triangle box with no sides! Pretty cool eh? I love how everything turned out!

Confession... I completely forgot to take a picture of the card and the package together! Can't now because the teacher already has their gift! Oops!

Congratulations!

Hi Everyone! Today's card is a new one for me. I have been trying to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. For some of you this isn't new and not hard at all. But, for me it was very challenging. 

I thought I had to have the images completely straight in order for it to look nice, however I think it looks great. What do think? Can you even tell that I did the background words?


Sky is the Limit, Congratulations

I started stamping the sentiment in the middle and worked my way up, then I worked my way down. I have no idea if that is the way to do it, but it worked for me!

Sky is the Limit, Congratulations

There are 2 dimensionals (on top of one another) under the middle star, while the outside two have just one.

Since this is a Graduation card, I needed a little gift bag to go with it. You can find the instructions here.

 You would be surprised a what you can actually fit in that cute little treat bag!



Here they are all matchy matchy! What do you think?

Supplies for the card only:

Paper:
Rich Razzleberry
Whisper White
Rich Razzleberry DSP

Inks:

Stamps:

Sweet Cupcake!

Hi Everyone! I have to be honest, this card took me forever to make! I had trouble with the layering and the colours. 

I think I have finally got the hang of it. 

It wasn't easy. 

I think I spent 2 days trying to make it work and look good!


Happy Birthday

This one is based on the design from the one in the catalogue.

Happy Birthday

It's hard to believe that each Cupcake has 6 colours or 6 layers to it! You start with the lightest colour first, which is usually the fuller stamp image. 

The ones on the end are:
Pool Party stamped off
Pool Party full strength
Mint Macaron

The middle is:
Blushing Bride stamped off
Blushing Bride full strength
Watermelon Wonder

For the base of the Cupcake:
Sahara Sand stamped off
Crumb Cake
Soft Suede

Loving Dapper Denim!

Hi Everyone! We are in the final few weeks of school around here, then it's summer vacation! That also means it's time to thank the wonderful people who have taught/inspired and kept our kids safe over the school year. 

This one is for the school bus driver. Great guy, he puts up with a lot of kids twice a day!

Work of Art, Simply Wonderful

He hinted the other day that some Chocolate Chip Cookies would be fabulous right about now! Which is great because I love to bake. 

Work of Art, Simply Wonderful

I used the New InColour Dapper Denim. I promise that you will fall in love with this colour! I do hope they decide to keep this colour for a while.

As you can see I used absolutely no dimensionals! I know, from time to time that happens! This card just didn't need any at all.

I did stamp off the Dapper Denim and Crumb Cake once. I didn't want it full strength. (It is full strength for the sentiment).

Supplies:

Paper:
Crumb Cake
Dapper Denim
Whisper White

Inks:
Crumb Cake (stamped off)

Swirly Bird 5!

Hi Everyone! Okay, this is the last day that I am going to post a card using the new stamp set Swirly Bird. 

Okay, this one technically doesn't use the Swirly Bird stamp set. It does however use the Thinlits that match. Swirly Scribbles!

I am sure I got my inspiration for this card from one I saw on Pinterest. However, I can't find it anymore! 

Congratulations, swirly scribbles

I was going to use the retired Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder on the Whisper White background. However, I am liking the simplicity of it without.

Congratulations, Sky is the Limit

I know the Itty Bitty Punches have been retired and they don't seem to be returning with anything like them, so instead you could use the flower from the Swirly Bird stamp set. 

Sky is the Limit, Congratulations

Love the Pearls!

Supplies:

Paper:
Whisper White
Soft Suede
Pink Pirouette

Inks:

Stamps:

Swirly Bird 3!

Hi Everyone! Seems like a Swirly Bird kind of week! Hope you are enjoying all that you see here!

To be completely honest this was a hard one for me. I know it looks simple and everything, but not for me! I had trouble with the swirls! No idea where to place them, how to place, what colour, etc. 

So, first I picked the colours. These are from the Regals family. Then I stamped away. I can say that I am pretty happy with how this turned out. And it was completely out of my element!


Stylized Birthday, Happy Birthday

I am loving the new Stylized Birthday stamp. You will be seeing it a lot on my cards to come!


Stylized Birthday, Happy Birthday

I made 2 different cards using the same colours. Not sure which one I like more, how about you?

Stylized Birthday, Happy Birthday

Can you believe it... no Dimensionals! Great card for anyone, plus you can always change up the colours! That's what I love about making cards, you can always change something!

Supplies:

Paper:
Night Of Navy
Whisper White

Inks:
Elegant Eggplant
