Hope you have a Bomb Pop 4th of July!

Hello my crafting friends!

The 4th of July is sneaking up on me!  Rather you head out to the lake to have some fun camping and fishing or head to be the beach, we're all out having some fun and celebrating our Independence!
I don't know if it's because it's so hot outside or I just wanted to make a 'Bomb Pop'  but this is the 1st thing I thought of for my 4th of July card.  LOL   I also wanted to use my stamp set I found at Michael's  I have used this set before, I really like the swirls in this set.
Plus, it's a photopolymer!
To hold the Real Red and Pacific Point card stock and Glimmer Paper, (all cut at 1 1/2 x 1 inch) I taped the back to keep it from slipping around when I stick to the Whisper White card stock that I stamped a swirl in Real Red.  Before I stuck it for good, I put a small scrap of Crumb Cake for a stick.
The sentiment is from a retired SU set.  I think it's time to go to the store and pick some up, yum!!

Thank you for joining me today!

Grateful for you, treat holders

Hello Stampers!

What a great Monday!  Whoa, did I say that?  ha-ha Probably because on summer break I loose track of my days and it really don't feel like a Monday.  LOL Maybe?
Here is my Project share for today.  I wanted to make up some kind of  hand outs for all the volunteers for our VBS, (Vacation Bible School).  This is what I came up with.
I liked this punch but had not used it very much so I wanted to use it to make some kind of little handout.  I used a brad (I picked up these colored brads from Michael's) to attach the Lifesaver to the nut.
It's easy to make these up watching a movie!  I ended up with 102 and only needed about 26! ha-ha
It's all good.

Thank you for joining me today!

Challenge excepted!

Hello Stampers!
Challenge excepted!  I was challenged to create a card using what items I had left out on my desk.  It actually turned out fairly well.  I had been working on sympathy, wedding and anniversary cards so I had plenty of supplies laying around on my desk.
I really liked how the Vellum heart actually turned out.  When I cut it out using the Bloom' Heart Thinlit for the wedding card I didn't think it looked nice so I used the Silver Foil paper instead.
 By luck I had one butterfly extra from my sympathy cards.  My youngest son loves using the Big Shot so he cut them out for me, he always tells me, 'one more mama'.  LOL  In this case that was perfect!

If you have any questions or would like to know more about joining My Stampin' team let me know!

Country singin'

Hello Stampers!
As a lot of you know, I was born in Western Montana no matter where I live in this world I will always have that in my heart.
So when I seen the new stamp set Country Livin' I was so excited and had to get it!
I wanted some western paper, I found the paper I used at Hobby Lobby.  The card base is Basic Black along with a piece of Very Vanilla.
I added a 'rope' with Linen Thread attached with a glue dot.  I colored this simply by using Crayola Colored pencils.

Thank you for joining me today!
Hope you have a great day.

Making up Envelopes for your favorite cards.

Hello Stampers!
I hope today is going well for you!  It's another beautiful day here in Montana!

I had some Neutrals Envelope paper left over so I thought I would use some of it up and make a few fun envelopes to go with some of my favorite cards.  Here is one I made to fit the card I created yesterday.
First I took and cut my paper down to an 8x8 piece of paper.
Then following the measurements on the board I started with my 1st score mark at 3 1/2 inches and punch then turned until each side is scored and notched.
Fold and crease all your score marks.
I used Fast Fuse to stick my envelope together but you can use which ever is your favorite.
Next comes the fun part!  You get to decorate your envelope!  Of course you can do it to the purchased envelopes as well.
A decorated envelope always add a little bit more fun to your card!

Thank you for joining me today!
If you have any questions please let me know.

Wedding Wishes~Congrats wedding card

Hello Stampers!
We celebrate another glorious late spring day!  Our yard has turned so green with the beautiful rain that we have gotten.  I am so thankful for this time because by late August our beautiful yard is a beautiful shade of....Crumb Cake!  LOL
Another wedding card share!  Everything on this card are scraps from past cards.  I am thrilled to use up such materials I don't want to throw away!  The Stamp set is from Sale-a-Bration 2015.
I decided to create a half front card with a layer.
I used the matching sentiment for the inside.  Crumb Cake is the card base with matching retired DSP.
