Trick or Treat




Here is a card that I made for our Holiday Happiness stamp camp. I happy that my card was chosen for one of the camp projects. There were alot of great halloween projects to choose from. I had fun creating this simple card I was able to use the fabulous washi tape which is perfect for those fun and quick cards. When creating this card for a possible camp card I wanted something that would be able to allow our customers to experience the greatness of washi tape and see first hand how simple it is to use.


Thanks for stopping by I'm hoping that I will be able to post more this week. I guess we shall see if blogger will be kind to me or not.

Make a Wish

Boy have these last couple of weeks flown by. We've been on the go, go, go here in the Toll household and I really don't see us slowing down much anytime soon. At least I've been able to get some stampin time in so I can't complain to much and I hope to share some of it with you soon. For starters here is a card that I made for our little cousin Joanna she recently turned 3 and we celebrated her birthday a couple weekends ago.  I found inspration for this card from the gift bag we got for her it was covered in bright colorful polka dots. I realize now that I failed to take a picture of the bag. but you can find inspiration for crafts everywhere.  I'm sad to say that the Distressed dots background stamp will be leaving us soon as it's on the retired list, BOO! So if you still have items on your wish list be sure to get them before they are gone.


Supplies:

Paper: Whisper White & Melon Mambo, Silver Glimmer Paper

hello, baby

 Boy did this weekend fly by. I wish it had lasted just a little bit longer. I went to a stamp get together a few weeks ago. I was pretty excited when I saw that my friend Cary had this as her shoe box. I have a few cousins that are pregnant and are due within the month. I made a couple changes from Cary's original card and I added some ribbon. Loved the card Cary and thanks for sharing. Since making this card my cousin had her baby and momma and  sweet baby girl are in good health and home. With a very proud big sister.

Congratulations!
 Anthony, Sandy & Joanna
Can't wait to see you all later in the week. =D

Happy Birthday Sarah

 Happy Sunday! A couple weeks ago was my friend Sarah's birthday and this card went out to her. I wish I can take credit for it but I can't the only thing I can say was my own was the color combination choices. The original card had a lot of the summer starfruit color in it and seeing as I'm still not the biggest fan of that color I have a hard time using it unless its in small doses. I found this card on Pinterest and I thought it was really cute and simple. I know for the life of me cant find the original creator. I want to say I CASEd it from Mindy at Bada-Bing! Creations. I love her work and love casing her work.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Happy Birthday BuG!!!

I'm a bit late in posting this card. This is the card I gave my little guy, he recently turned 5 on March 15th {insert tear}.  Its bittersweet he's growing so fast and as much as love watching him learning, and discovering new things and just seeing his personality grow its sad to see my baby growing up. I really think this Storybook DSP is so cute. It's pretty universal it's great for kids cards/projects but it can also be used on masculine cards because it offers some great striped patterns too. Stay tuned I have some cards from Caleb's birthday party that I will be sharing in the next couple days. Thanks for stopping by!

All Dressed Up Posies

 TGIF!!! I'm so happy its Friday. It certainly has felt like the longest week ever. Our family has a packed filled weekend for Easter and I'm looking forward to spending sometime with my boys and family. Today's post is a sample card that I made for display at camp. I'm sure it will eventually go to one of my sisters seeing as how I have 2 that have birthdays coming soon. This card was inspired by a frame that Kim Van Diepen created. I loved how she made the dress skirt from the pop up posies kit. When I saw her frame I new I had to design a card with that same skirt idea. It's really easy to do the skirt, she used a hot glue gun on her tutorial I just used tombow glue and its pretty secure. Check out Kim's tutorial and check out her All Dressed Up frame here.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Easter weekend.

Happy Saturday! Here is a card that I submitted as a potential for camp. I really love this color combination. My original sample is the card with the distressed dots background stamp.

Thanks So Much


Today will be a quick post I have lots going on today.  This is one of my cards that I made for a possible camp card, and made it. It was1 of the 6 projects picked. It's a very simple card without a lot of layers or much to it which is usually completely out of my comfort zone. It is a 4x4 card and is a signature size for me so I've been told. It's a bit hard to tell in the photograph but I spritzed a little bit of frost shimmer paint when I was done. I made the shimmer spritz by adding rubbing alcohol to one of our Stampin' Spritzer bottles and then adding a few drops of the shimmer paint. If you want it to be really shimmery then add more paint to the mix. I hope you have a great weekend.



Supplies:
Paper: Whisper White Card stock

Stamp Set: Oh, Hello {spring catalog}

Ink: Calypso Coral & Old Olive Marker, Early Espresso

Accessories: Needle Point Border EF {spring catalog}, Calypso Coral Bakers Twine and Frost Shimmer Paint Spritzer 

TIP: Add rubbing alcohol to one of our Stampin' Spritzer and mix in a few drops of Frost Shimmer paint. You can add more Shimmer paint to mix if desired.

Tea for Two Flower

 Happy Friday, boy did this week fly by! First off I want to say thank you to everyone who came to camp this last Saturday! It was a whole lot of fun for me and I hope you had just as much fun as I did. From what I was hearing during the card hop it sounded like nothing but positive. I also want to thank all the demonstrators for all of their hard work and especially to Angie who took on the task of our treasurer because in all honesty that is not a task that I would want. =D

OK, onto my post. These are the name tags that I made for us demos to wear during our Card Hop. I really must say when I volunteered to make new name tags I wanted to make a flower to attach to them one that  at the same time could also be removed so that they could add it to anything afterward. I'm also not the sewing type so it had to be a no sew. I know I could easily thread a needle and just do minimal sewing but I really just didn't want to. So I cut my flowers using the Fun flowers die using the second to the largest and the smaller one the one that looks like our blossom punch. I also used a flower from the blossom party die (the one with the multiple petals) I cut 2 of each flower giving me a total of 6 layers, added some starch to make my flower full and  then used my handy dandy glue gun to assemble it together. Overall I was really happy with the end result and how they came out. Drop me a line and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Summer Silhouettes 

Ink: Lucky Limeade

Accessories: Tea for Two Fabric, Fun Flowers Die, Blossom Party Die, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Basic Designer Buttons, Early Espresso Bakers Twine
