Starburst Sayings

TSSC363Hppy Monday everyone!  Since it is the third Monday of the month it’s time for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime sketch challenge.  Mary Jo has another fun sketch for us and I’m still on kick to use more of my retiring items before they are gone.

I haven’t used my Starburst Sayings in a while and thought it would work paired up with the Confetti Celebration dsp.  I love the fun, bright colors in this paper!

Here’s the details –

  • Bermuda Bay – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Confetti Celebration – 2 1/8 x 5 1/2
  • Tangelo Twist – 1 x 5 1/2, cut out using the Large Scallop Edgelit, layer behind dsp and add to card front.  Add Basic Black strip – 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • Stamp large Starburst Saying using Versamark on Whisper White, black emboss, cut out using matching framelit and color using Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, and Bermuda Bay markers.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp small Starburst Saying using Versamark on Crushed Curry, black, emboss, cut out using matching framelit and add using dimensionals

TSSC363Once again…another SIMPLE sketch to make it easy for you to join the fun!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Tour de Freaks – April

freakwelcome2013

Welcome everyone to the April Tour de Freaks Blog Hop!  We are so happy that you are joining us!  The month our theme is masculine or ‘gender neutral’…I decided to go with the ‘gender neutral’ one!  If you are going forward through the blog, you arrived here from Wendy Weixler’s Wickedly Wonderful Blog!  She always has the most AMAZING things!

CFAprBlogHopCard1For my projects I decided to focus on using the Retro Fresh dsp.  We have several dsp’s right now that says ‘gender neutral to me.  This layout might look familiar to the other freaks as I used this card but with different dsp for my last Control Freak swap!  This really really quite fun (and easy)  The base if Coastal Cabana, Take a piece of Very Vanilla and lay 4 different dsp prints (7/8″ each) on it.  Cut out the Starburst Framelit.  Wrap some Pumpkin Pie 1/8″ Taffeta ribbon around it.  Stamp Oh Happy Day on another piece of Very Vanilla layer behind the opening using dimensionals then add to card front using dimensionals along the top and bottom.

Oh…but you have this WONDERFUL circle that you cut out from this card….you can’t let it go to waste!

CFAprBlogHopCard2Yep…that circle works perfectly on my second card.  Again the base if Coastal Cabana.  I took another strip of the Coastal Cabana and ran it through my Arrows Textured Embossing Folder and added it to the card front then added my cool leftover circle.  Next I made my tag, stamped the star in So Saffron and the greeting in Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede, and Coastal Cabana, added a strip of dsp to the bottom, Soft Suede 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon to the top tied with Linen Thread.  The tag is added using dimensionals.  I stamped the celebrate in Soft Suede on So Saffron, cut out with the Starburst Framelit and added it to the card to finish it off.

Okay…time for the my last item…a little money holder.  No matter WHAT gender you are…money works!

CFAprBlogHopeMoneyClsdThis is a quick and easy money holder.  Now because gift cards are just a smidge bigger than 2″…I went with money instead of gift card so it would work with my Tag Topper punch.  Went with this one so that it again was more ‘gender neutral’ then the scallop one would be!

CFAprBlogHopMoneyOpenThe outside is really just 3″ by 4 3/4″ wrapped about the tag and the tag is 2 x 5.  Fold up 1 1/2″ on the bottom to create the flap and secure with the Retro Fresh Washi Tape.  I just LOVE all the thing you can do with the Washi Tape!  The AWESOME is from the the Cool Kids set, stamped in Soft Sued on Very Vanilla and cut into a banner.  The stars are from Perfect Pennant, stamped in Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana, and Crushed Curry.  The candy Dots are Crumb Cake (because I ran out of all the Soft Suede one from the card above!)

I hope you enjoyed my projects and are inspired to do some fun things with the Retro Fresh dsp!  Now it’s time to hop on over to Judy DiScipio at Judy Stamps blog and check out the GREAT projects she has for you!

Starburst Sayings

TSSC298Happy Monday everyone!  Today is a day off (although when you teach online there really isn’t a day off!) and there is a GREAT sketch over on Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  So, if you have some extra time on your hands come join the fun!

So…I started out with an idea to EXACTLY follow the sketch this week.  Hmmm…I think something happened by the time I finished!  EEK!  But it’s sort of close.

Here’s the details:

  • Crisp Cantaloupe – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Sweet Sorbet dsp dotted print 2 1/4 x 4 1/2 layer on Sahara Sand 2 3/8 x 4 5/8 and add to card front.
  • Stamp in Calypso Coral, cut out with matching Starburst framelit, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • I made my bow (see tutorial tab above for basic instructions) but instead of using a brad I tied it with a piece of Linen Thread then added to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Add a Crisp Cantaloupe Boutique Detail to the center of the bow.

TSSC298Isn’t this a fun sketch?  So I sort of put my main panel more to the right then the rectangle at the top became my bow that I angled on the left.  It’s CLOSE…well sort of!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Starburst Sayings

CAS DOTI haven’t been doing many challenges recently…it’s that full time work thing (and feeling a bit under the weather).  Anyway I just couldn’t resist combining two of my VERY FAVORITE challenges – CAS-ology (Dots) and colourq (it wasn’t posted on the site but I found it on one of the design team members).  I did substitute Real Red for Poppy Parade!

Here’s the VERY quick and easy details:

  • Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded run through the SAB Decorative Dots folder
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  It’s hard to see but I score two lines 1 1/8 and 1 1/4 from the right side.   Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting in Real Red, cut out with matching Starburst framelit.  Add Pool Party Twine (SAB) bow and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Island Indigo – 3/4″ Circle Punch, Basic Grey 1/2″ Circle Punch.  Add using dimensionals.
  • Basic Rhinestones to finish it off!

Don’t you just LOVE CAS?  I know that I do!
