Animal Outing Birthday!

Hello All!

Animal Outing and it’s Dies are retiring at the end of May.

and also using up some DSP I found stashed away!

 

Here is today’s Card!

I was inspired by the strip of DSP I found in my stash!

This is a set I will keep in my stamp set stash!

These animals are great for kids!

 

Here is the simple inside!

I am Thankful!

 

ON ANOTHER NOTE!

I have some cardstock in my stash from Michaels. I do prefer Stampin’Up! quality, but sometimes their are others that work as well!

I do support Stampin’Up! immensely…after all I am a Demonstrator, but I also use other products out there as well. When someone is first starting out, I will direct them to other products at first. Then as they get more comfortable with their Craft, then I can direct them to quality products. Many do not want to make a large investment until they are sure that this is what they want to do…once they are sure, then quality plays a big role, especially if they want to sell their cards!

Staying in place has me going through many nooks and crannies is the Craft Room!
I found 3 of these card bases and DSP and Call Me Clover Green Cardstock,
all in a sandwich bag! Yes, I use sandwich bags to separate cards and such!
These were with some black and white botanical print too!
I am trying to figure out what to make with the black and white,
ah…back into the bag, till I decide what to make!

I do hope you all are staying in place. If your state has started to lift the stay-in-place order, please be cautious and still wear a mask, going out and still maintain the 6 foot Social Distancing. We are not Out of the Woods yet!

Stay Safe, Keep Washing Your Hands, Maintain Social Distancing, and if you do venture out, please wear a mask and gloves, if possible, to not allow a second surge of this virus. I am concerned that there will be those out there that don’t care for anyone, but themselves, and will take the wrong, or no precautions. And then there are others, who will think it is all over and not do anything to protect themselves.

Please friends, take care of yourselves and also those that are vulnerable. I do fall into that category, as well as Mr. Hubster. We want to come out of this safe and sound. We also will wait till it will be ok to hug friends and family members, away from us, again!

Until the next Post…God Bless you ALL and Stay Safe!

Picture Perfect Birthday…!

Hello All!

I was playing around in the Craft Room yesterday!

I have a drawer with all different items

I have punched out for other projects and

changed my mind about them.

I put them in this drawer for a later use.

I have to admit, I sometimes forget the drawer as a resource.

Yesterday I pulled out the drawer and went through the contents!

I found a frame and a Toucan!

I pulled out the Bonanza Buddies Suite and

Started putting items together!

 

Here is my Card!

100_7387

I’m in like with this whole Suite!

Usually I only like a couple of items from a suite, this one…

…the whole kit and kaboodle!

 

Here is the inside!

100_7384

I used the Tutti Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins, I had in my stash!

The color is Pumpkin Pie, but it went with the Mango Melody frame!

ITEMS USED TO MAKE THIS CARD:

CARDSTOCK:

Bermuda Bay- card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″

Mango Melody- frame (3″ x 4″ piece, square die cut out of it!)

Whisper White- inside panel, 4″ x 5.25″

scrap to stamp Toucan and die cut, small piece to die-cut greeting banner

inside strip, .75″ x 4″

STAMP SET:

Bonanza Buddies- Toucan

Picture Perfect Birthday- greeting, inside sentiment, confetti (looks like sprinkles!)

INK:

Bermuda Bay- greeting, inside sentiment, and confetti

Coastal Cabana- inside confetti (for contrast!)

Memento Tuxedo Black- Toucan

STAMPIN’ BLENDS:

Stitched So Sweetly Dies- greeting banner

ACCESSORIES:

Here is another peek at my Card!

100_7385

The greeting banner…it too, is a left over piece, from the drawer!

Simple Card with pieces already pre-cut!

Make a drawer with your pieces and challenge yourself to use them!

Believe me, I still have quite a few more pieces to use up out of this drawer!

 

ON ANOTHER NOTE:

I HAD to go to the nearby market last night, after supper.

I hate venturing out, but milk and bread are a necessity!

I did mask up, gloved up, and kept my distance.

I really think we here in the Harbour have dodged a bullet, SO far.

I believe it is because everyone here has taken this seriously.

We all are staying in place and only going out to the

market, for supplies needed for the home.

About every week and a half.

BTW, still no TP on the shelves!

Crazy!?

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Prayers for your health!

Be Smart, Be Careful, Be Aware!

Tropical Wishes #2…!

Hello ALL!

Today’s Card is the 3rd Card of my ‘Stair Step Card Dies’!

the Paper Cut’s “Inner Stair Step Die”

Here is that Die!

100_7375

This looks the same as the first die, it isn’t, it is a different fold!

 

Here is the Card I made with this die!

100_7376

I did something different with this Card…I show my mistakes!

I put a back onto this card and it didn’t open right!

So I adhered the back part of the step to the inside…nope, won’t do that again!

Here is how the Card looks from the side…

100_7377

The back leans in, instead of standing up!

Here is the panel I put on the back.

100_7378

Because of the Card I used for the front of this, I wanted to ‘neaten’ this up!

The error, I adhered the inside down…big boo-boo!

It still stands ok…but, just that…ok.

HERE IS THE LIST OF ITEMS USED FOR THIS CARD:

Cardstock:

Pear Pizzazz: card base

Mossy Meadow: mats

Leaves with Ink:

Soft Sea Foam stamped onto Soft Sea Foam

Pear Pizzazz stamped onto Pear Pizzazz

Old Olive stamped onto Old Olive

Flowers with Ink:

Petal Pink stamped onto Petal Pink

Mango Melody stamped onto Mango Melody

Terracotta Tile stamped onto Terracotta Tile

Stamp Sets:

Here’s A Card: greeting

Dies:

The Paper Cut- Inner Stair Step Die

Tropical Dies: leaves and flowers

Accessories:

Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack- large back flower, trimmed down to fit onto the mat, for the back step!

 

Here is the Card, again!

100_7379

The Card is usable, and it will stand, just not like I hoped it would turn out.

Next Card from this die, I will leave well enough alone!!!!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Tropical Wishes to you ALL!

Stay Safe, Stay in Place, Wash your hands, often!

If you HAVE to go out, maintain your social distance of 6′ away from others.
