Fresh Fruit

Here’s another one of those sets that I really like and managed to dig it out while I was getting things put together for my move.

Although I really like all the images in this set but the flowers are just so much fun.  Again I was playing with the A Little Foxy dsp.  It’s not just for foxy and critters of the forrest!

This is just such a happy card and it would brighten anyone’s day!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Smoky Slate/White print – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, layer onto Dapper Denim 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front
  • Calypso Coral strip dsp – 1 x 4, add to card front
  • Dapper Denim – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out Stitched Circle, stamp greeting using Dapper Denim, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp 2 large flowers in Pool Party, 3 small flowers in Calypso Coral, leaves in Wild Wasabi and all flower centers in Dapper Denim, cut out everything and add to card front

What a happy card and I have the perfect person in mind to get this!

That’s the Tag

I really like little 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 cards.  It’s just such a fun size to design with.  Sometimes I get on kicks where I do a bunch of these but it has been a while since I have.

I wanted to use the cute little flower image from the the That’s the Tag set so this little card size was just perfect for it.  It think it turned out really sweet!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – stamp flowers twice using Memento Black, color using Melon Mambo, Dapper Denim, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Cut out
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 3 3/8, stamp greeting using Melon Mambo and Dapper Denim
  • Dapper Denim, 1/8 x 3 1/4, cut on slant, add to card front
  • Melon Mambo diagonal print – 3/8 x 2 7/8, cut on slant, add to card front
  • Melon Mambo – 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, layer behind Whisper White Panel then add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add flowers using dimensionals
  • Add Silver Metallic Enamel Dots to finish off

Another quick and easy!

Easter Favor

Happy April everyone and happy April Fools Day!  Don’t worry though…we don’t are going to play any tricks on you with our hop.  Instead the design team has been busy creating Easter favors!

So…nothing says ‘Easter Favor’ to me like an Easter Basket and the Window Box Thinlit was just made for this!  And it is SOOOOO EASY!

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – cut out ONE of the window box pieces, cut the top piece in half (to make the back panel) and then run through again to add the slits, put together.
  • Flirty Flamingo – stamp greeting using Memento Black, punch out using the Classic Label Punch
  • Whisper White – Stamp the little flower/leaves from the That’s the Tag set, cut out with matching timeless Tags thinlit, add to tag, color with Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz makers, add tag using dimensionals
  • Tie bow using Flirty Flamingo Runche Ribbon, add using glue dot

All that’s let is to fill it up with grass and Easter goodies!  And speaking of goodies…

Tour de Freaks – Jan 17

freakwelcome2013Happy January Control Freak Blog Hop everyone!

We are once again having fun with all of our new stuff in the Occasions Mini and the Sale-a-bration brochure.  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Amy Koenders’s blog – weren’t her projects fun!

One of the things that first caught my eye in the Occasions Mini (well besides the dragonflies of course) was the Timeless Tags Thinlits…how cool these are!  Today I’m going to share three cards I made.  I decided to pair it with the cool piece of specialty paper in the Affectionately Yours Specialty dsp.
