Simple Love What You Do Thank You Card


Stampin Up Love What You Do

Happy official summer! Sometimes you need a quick and simple thank you card and today’s card fits the bill. I used the Love What You Do stamp set and coordinating Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper as my focal points. This design in the paper really shows off the pearlized detail.

Here is a look at the stamp set:

Measurements:
Crumb Cake card base - 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score in half at 4 ¼”
Rich Razzleberry layer – 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”
DSP – 3 ¾” x 5”
Crumb Cake – 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”
Ribbon – 5” piece

Want to know a fun tip? You can cut the scalloped Rich Razzleberry circle from the Rich Razzleberry rectangle. Just make sure when you run through the Big Shot you aren’t too lose to the edge. This is a great help to save on your cardstock supplies.

Place an online order with me in June with host code: XYF4DS2Y and I will send you a fun surprise gift.

I’ll be back on Sunday with another project to share.

Happy Stampin’,

Rooted in Nature for Father’s Day



Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Sunday and Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there.  I hope you are enjoying the weekend. Summer has finally arrived to Massachusetts so we have been out and about enjoying it. Yesterday we checked out a small music festival in Somerville and got to catch the last two acts. Today we are headed to see my father-in-law.

I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set on my card today. I am playing along with a CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook group. They post cards from the Stampin’ Up! catalog every week and then you can play along and create a card based on the sketch. I absolutely love how the catalog has so many samples to copy.

Here is a look at the Rooted in nature stamp set:

Measurements for my card:
Crumb Cake card base - 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score in half at 4 ¼”
Wood Textures DSP – 2 ½” x 4 ¼”
Tranquil Tide cardstock – 3 1/8” x 4”
Whisper White cardstock – 3” x 3 ¾”

Let me know if you have any questions about today’s post.

The supplies I used are below. Place an order with me in my Online Store in June using host code: XYF4DS2Y and I will have a surprise sent to you.

I’ll be back on Tuesday with another project to share and video tutorial.

Happy Stampin,
Christine

Pineapple Punch Candy Bar Holder


Hi and thanks for stopping by today. I have a quick post to show you a cute candy bar holder that my friend Selene gave me at an event on Sunday. I needed to find it since it is about to get very hot here in Massachusetts and I didn’t want the candy bar to melt.

I’m pretty sure she used the envelope punch board to create the holder and hopefully I can case this project in the future to recreate it and share the measurements.

The stamp set she used is Eastern Beauty and the primary color is the new in-color Pineapple Punch. I picked pineapple since ”je suis un ananas” (I am a pineapple) is one of the phrases I can say in French.  When I was in middle school we watched a TV show with a talking pineapple in French class. I am not making this up. It was called Telefrancais and it is on YouTube if you want to check it out.

I’ll be back on Sunday with another post. I hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating grads and dads!

Happy Stampin’,
