Just for You {Thank You Card} New In Color Pool Party

I love the new color Pool Party! It’s my all time favorite color. Layered with chocolate chip and another pattern from Flirtatious Specialty DSP, it’s bright, summery and fun.

The sentiment is from Afterthoughts, a Hostess set, stamped in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I punched out the circle with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. It’s hard to notice, but I stamped the small flower from Afterthoughts in So Saffron ink, stamping off first for a lighter effect. Around the edges, I sponged on some Pool Party ink using a sponge dauber.

The scallop circle is Melon Mambo textured card stock, punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle. I used the cropadile to punch the holes in each scallop (the larger hole punch). Two basic rhinestones and Chocolate Chip Scallop Dot Ribbon finish off the card in terms of accessories.

Merry Crittermas Cute Christmas Card

I don’t know what I like best about this little guy, but he is just too cute! I think it’s his little teeth that get me. This is a simple enough holiday card to make in bulk, with enough interest to keep me from getting bored. Each element can be prepped in advance and I can assemble them quickly if I plan ahead.

The card base is Cherry Cobbler, layered with Jolly Holiday DSP. I cut Old Olive card stock with the Top Note Die in the Big Shot, and wrapped some 1 1/4″ Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (from the clearance rack) around the front.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from Bright Christmas (Holiday Mini) in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card stock, punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. I sponged some Old Olive Craft ink around the edges, sprinkled on some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, and heated it to give a glittery effect without the glitter.

For the main image, I stamped this adorable little beaver from Merry Crittermas onto Watercolor Paper with Black Stazon ink and colored it in using SU Markers and the Aquapainter.I use this technique for easy watercoloring.

To make his teeth extra white, I used the Signo White Gel Pen. Then, I trimmed the image out and attached it with stampin’ dimensionals to a Very Vanilla 1 3/4″ Circle that I embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and Big Shot. That is layered onto a Cherry Cobbler 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle, dotted with the Signo White Gel Pen and Paper Piercer.

Lollipop Party Favors

For my daughter’s birthday, we gave out giant lollipops as party favors. To make them more personalized, I added handmade labels and big striped ribbon. The lollipops were placed in a vase fitted with a block of floral foam and filled with sand.

To make the labels, I stamped “thanks” from Thank You Kindly in Rose Red ink. Below that, I stamped the heart from Something Sweet in Pumpkin Pie ink. Along the top, I used the curved sentiment from Something Sweet stamped in Old Olive ink. Using the clear mount version allowed me to bend the stamp into a tighter arch, fitting perfectly in a 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. That was layered onto a Chocolate Chip 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.

The ribbon is the 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry.
