Scrapbook page. Using Flashback DSP & Everyday 

Adventure Project Life Accessory pack

I hope your day is going great! Weather is nice here today in SC. Although I sure wouldn't
mind if summer came now! Lol. Anyway... that's typical.... here's the page.

 The dots  in the background on the Basic Gray Cardstock was done using a sponge, VersaMark Ink Pad
and the Dots Mask. Such an easy and CUTE detail. But I love dots!!





 The little wood piece & blue Washi tape are from the  Everyday Adventure Project Life Accessory Pack


 The black letters are also from the Everyday Adventure Accessories PL Pack
 The picture is glued to the "grid" paper and then they are popped up with Dimentionals
I roughed up parts of the edges on the yellow striped paper, the camera paper & the red design paper.

 "2005" numbers are cut out of the Typeset Specialty DSP




Have a great day!!

Hello! Today it's Vellum!

 

 I made this card for the Around the World Stampin Challenge


It's fun to push yourself out of the box and try something unusual. 
Vellum is a little tricky to use because you need to hide your adhesive. Glue dots work great!



I die cut the feathers with a new set in the Holiday Catalog called Feathers Framelits dies.
It has stamps to match called Four Feathers but I just used embossing folders and the Bigshot to add texture


 I used the Hearts Border Punch, Handheld Stapler with Mini Staples.
The twine is Calypso Coral, which isn't a perfect match but close enough.

 Colors are Basic Gray and Melon Mambo with Vellum

Thanks for Stopping by!

Have a great day!

Nuts about You!

Hello again!

Today I made a cute card with the Nuts about You Hostess set

 



 I embossed the tree with VersaMark ink and Embossing Powder in Early Espresso



 I stamped the leaves in Gumball Green (retired), cut them out and popped some of them up with Dimentionals
It did take a few minutes but looks so cute


 I used 2 greens for the grass, Old Olive & Gumball Green

 Here I used the Ticket Duo Builder punch,
 for the green one i just cut the ends off and glued it on the whisper white.


 I had some tiny brads that look like a regular & a philips head screw and i cut the brad off.
Then I put them in a shaker frame.





Have a great day!

Congratulations! Baby Card

AW26 Product



 

 Here's my card
 I used Watercolor Paper, Lost Lagoon Ink pad smooshed onto the cover, and a paintbrush.
 I still don't have an Aqua Painter which may be easier. I sprayed the Watercolor paper first with water
in a Stampin' Spritzer then inked up my paintbrush and swiped it across the paper. Put more ink where you want it darker.


 I fussy cut the elephant & giraffe and popped them up with Dimensionals



 Banner Punch, Banner Blast Stamps which is from Sale-a-bration, 
The grass stamp is from the Hostess set Nuts About You
and the leaves are from Kinda Eclectic


 I notched the end of the banner with the Banner Punch
