Pallet Board Card

Pallet board is so “in” right now, I thought I would incorporate that look into a card!
Watermarked Photo

This was my “cruise swap”.

The smaller piece of Marina Mist card stock is 5″ x 3 3/4″. I stamped the sailboat and sun on the card stock, then sponged (or direct ink pad to paper) with Soft Suede ink, followed by Craft White.

Then I cut the card stock apart in 1 1/4″ pieces

Sand the edges and ink the edges (I have a distressing tool to make all the edges distressed, but you could use a nail file as well)

What’s for Lunch?

Here’s a couple of cards using the same ideas as the sandwich that I used in my picnic themed project HERE. I just shrunk down all the sandwich items from the pattern to fit on the “plate”.

The stamp set used (to make the plate) is “Kind and Cozy”. The sentiment is from the “Yippee Skippee!” stamp set.

I made the miniature silverware using my Silhouette Cameo.

Picnic Themed Gift Set

Here’s a project I’ve been working on this week! This is a birthday gift for a VERY SPECIAL FRIEND of mine, Nancy Riley! It is a “picnic themed” gift. The items are placed ontop of a picnic style platter. Also included are napkins, cupcakes (grilling theme), a pincic basket with goodies inside, and a sandwich card!

The picnic basket and card patterns were from Lynn Pratt, whose blog can be found HERE. Lynn has AMAZING creations!!

Here are the cupcakes I made. I found these on the Family Fun website.

Well TODAY is the day my project and tutorial hits Craft Project Central! I had such a fun time designing these summer themed projects!

Lemonade Card

I’ve always loved the lemonade cards that have been on SCS, so I thought my stamp clubs would enjoy making them for summer! They are quite simple to make, but it is definitely a “hand it to them” card, and not a mailable one. The lemonade cup is 3-D, PLUS there is a lemonade packet on the inside pocket.

The Stampin’ Up cardstock is AWESOME! You can find this item on my Stampin’ Up website HERE.) It is item # 101856, and retails for $6.50 for 20 sheets. While you’re there, check out all the CLEARANCE ITEMS HERE.)


Recipe:Stamp Set: Tropical Party, Sweet Scoops (inside saying), Tart and TangyPaper: Yo Yo Yellow, Pink Passion, Whisper White, Cardstock VellumInk: Yo Yo Yellow, Pink Passion, Green Galore, Only OrangeAccessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Glue Pen, Straw, DaubersTo make the cup, I cut out a square that was 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. I made 2 dots at the bottom of the cardstock, about 3/4″ on each side. Then I cut the vellum from the top down to the dot, so it is cut at an angle on each side. Then I scored each side at 3/8″. Take a dauber and get some yellow ink on it. Rub it on the back side of the vellum to simulate the lemonade. Then, to attach the cup to the cardfront, I taped one side down first, then the other side, making sure I “bowed” the cup so it is 3-D.
Attach the straw with a small glue dot to keep it from moving around. Add Dazzling Diamonds to the top of the cup to make it look like sugar.

NOTE: Many people think the paper with the flowers on it is Designer Paper. It is not! If you use DP, the flowers are going to show through the vellum cup. The paper is whisper white using the Tropical Party stamp set. Just stamp around the edges and NOT in the middle or you will have floating flowers showing through your cup! LOL

Let the Summer Begin!

Here’s a card to kick off the summer! It is made with punches. I CASED Holly’s grill card, which can be found HERE.
