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.

Oh, Hello Thanks

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. This card was chosen for camp but we made a slight change to the background and used the honeycomb EF. I really like it both backgrounds. Well I'm off to run some errands and enjoy this nice weather were having here in California today. Thanks for stopping by.

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.

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!
