With Labor Day right around the corner, I decided to use this sweet watermelon stamp today. My inspiration for colors and embellishments came from picnics and bbq's, which I'm sure many of you will be attending this coming weekend! Wouldn't this make a nice thank you card for your host or hostess?
This is a very clean and simple design. I really wanted the watermelon to take center stage. Instead of coloring the image, I paper pieced it. To do this, I first stamped the watermelon on red cardstock and then again on olive cardstock, I trimmed both and then pieced them together. To give it an even more realistic look, I colored the smallest part of the rind with a dark green marker.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon :)

Well, I wouldn’t mind waiting a couple of months or so to tell the truth… but it was fun to bring out the wintery products again! I love Holliday papers!!!
I stamped the snowman from the Baby it’s cod outside set twice. First on the background paper then on white cardstock. I mounted it with some 3d foam and added the sentiment piece on top. Done. Really simple card, but I love the fun happy look of the snowman!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday folks! I week and two days late and a penny short, but don’t shoot me. I have two cards to share today, two Halloween easels. One I was supposed to blog last week, but things happened and I never did. Aaaand then I did another one for today, to match and team up with the first one.
First one is a circle easel, made with my Spellbinders nestabilities and theeee cutest lab ever, Where’s my treat labrador. I also added a spider web - You need to dust - in the background for some more “spooky” action. LOL!
I love making easels. They are fun and EASY to make, and there are endless possibilities of making the cards different in shape and size. You can find na easy to follow tutorial here if you haven’t tried one before.
Thanks for stopping by!

I think I'm going to send this to my son and his grandma...she's taking such great care of him while he's away at college. A 'Thank You' card is the least I can do.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your week and go check out all the challenges they have over at Splitcoast.

I wanted to share our last couple of weeks with you all. We've been to one side of the country (Valley Forge, PA) and back again (San Jose, CA). We've met great customers and had so much fun. We even played a little on the boardwalk of Atlantic City, NJ. Somebody had a camera...but it wasn't me. As soon as I get those incriminating photographs...I'll post them.
Our next adventure is in St. Charles, IL...just outside of Chicago. I can't wait...I think we're borrowing Frank and dressing him up again. Check back for more details later (I'll be sure to bring the camera to Chicago).
In the meantime...I wanted to share a fun card I made using the Ultimate from Crafters Companion. You may have noticed...and it's alright if you didn't...I've been using the Ultimate a lot these last few weeks. If you manage to get to one of our shows...be sure to stop by for a demo. It's great for card makers and scrap bookers alike. It's fabulous for boxes too. My favorite part is the bow maker. It really makes the bows easy. The easel card comes together very easily with this fun tool as well.

A new Monday, a new week, and new cards. For today, I’ve been playing with my favorite character from The Rubber Café – the labrador. He is soooooooo cute!!! Here is the lab with the party hat from the Birthdays and Balloons set.

I colored my Large Highwing Butterfly with Copic markers and popped up the wings slightly for dimension. Wishing you all a peaceful week!
