Party for Poop!

Party for Poop?!? Really!?! YES! Huge celebration that my adorable great niece, Zoey, is now potty trained! I sent her a super fun congrats card. She finally received it, so I can finally share it. This will take just a smear (hahaha) of imagination. Pretend you’re looking down on to a toilet seat. You lift the cover to peek inside…and…it’s a shaker card with poop! Hahahahahahaha!

Daisies by the Bay

Over and over I tell myself that I don’t need any more flower sets. But the new Daisy Lane stamp set kept calling my name. And for there to be two Daisy punches now just takes the cake! No…don’t get it!  But it’s so pretty! No…you don’t need more flowers! But there are TWO punches that match! Ugh. Yes. You know me too well. I am the happy owner of the Daisy Lane set as well as the punches and I have no regrets.

Daisies by the Bay
I have 6 awesome ladies that join me for stamping fun 7 times throughout the year (my stamp club) and I just knew we would be stamping daisies! The flowers are each stamped twice and punched out. Before gluing the two layers together, we used the Bone Folder to curl each petal downwards. The flowers are popped up on Dimensionals to keep the curl from going flat. Such a neat touch!

Hey Hey Hey Fun Frog Card

You know how children love attention? And how they will repeat something nonstop? Well, this card is in honor of all those times. You have to read the front of it as if you were a child. “Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey.”  You get my drift. Ha Ha Ha! This card just cracks me up to no end. Now that my youngest is turning (gulp!) 19 on Monday, I can chuckle about those days gone by when all three wanted my attention…immediately. This is a quick, fun card that comes together with some stamping, coloring and a few punches. That frog in the middle is me…and all the “hey”s are my (no longer) itty bitties.
Hey Hey Hey Fun Frog Card
The inside sentiment is from the new Well Said in the Occasions catalog.  The card makes me smile, so I thought I’d state the obvious on the inside…just like one of the kids!
Hey Hey Hey Fun Frog Card Inside
I finished it off with those stinkin’ cute flies randomly stamped on the envelope flap. This stamp set is one of the products you can earn for free in the Sale-a-Bration brochure. Hey Hey Hey…You just gotta get it!

So Hoppy for Sale-a-Bration!

I am always excited about Sale-a-Bration time and that has not waned in 2019! Look at this adorable frog! So stinkin’ cute! He’s part of a stamp set called So Hoppy Together and the set can be earned for FREE with a minimum order of $50 (before tax and shipping). But wait…there’s more! I used another item you can choose from out of the brochure. The green and black striped Designer Series Paper is from the Botanical Butterflies collection that is also a Sale-a-Bration item.  The package contains 12 sheets of double sided 12” x 12” paper that has colored images on one side and black and white on the other. Love it when I can use my Stampin’ Blends and color it exactly to match my card! I decided to use the new Gingham Gala Sequins in Grapefruit Grove to give it a pop of color.  I really had a ton of fun with this Birthday card!

Birthday Balloons for Mo

My oldest child turned 22 last week. What a sobering thought! Just because he’s grown, though, doesn’t mean he can’t get a fun Birthday card, right? It’s so hard to strike a balance of masculine yet fun, but the Celebrations Duo embossing folder that says “HAPPY” looks like a perfect fit! It’s hard to tell, but those circles you see are not all layers. I punched out a 2 ½” circle from the Tangerine Tango layer, embossed it, then glued it on. This allows the Early Espresso to show through from the card base. The Daffodil Delight is punched out with the 2” Circle Punch and glued inside that. This keeps the card from becoming too bulky. It also conserves cardstock, as I now have a 2 ½” circle of Tangerine Tango that I can use on another card! Bonus tip: I cut the “Happy Birthday” sentiment apart so I could easily stamp just “Birthday” on the front.
