Not just for popsicles….

Hi everyone, Laurel here.  When fellow DT member Amy posted some yummy looking coffee flavored popsicles she not only enabled me to purchase some stainless steel popsicle makers… she inspired this card.

I am not actually a fan of the regular popsicles… you know the all sugar kind – but give me a yummy chocolate fudgesicle or something like it and I’m all over it.

So today’s card is just that, a nice cool fudgesicle themed card. 

To create the fudgesicles I used the Coolest Ever Die and just cut and pieced some cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Day stamp set and die cut it out with the Mini Containers Die.  Finally the sweet sentiment was die cut from some of the Geofetti paper.

Not much else to say, busy times, quick and easy card.  Have a good day!

Adding Texture to a Design

Hi All, it’s Amy here sharing a sweet birthday card!  I have to constantly remind myself to design birthday cards.  For some reason they just aren’t my go-to design.  Today’s card features Bday Bash and Bloom Builder.

I started off my card using a couple strips of paper from the Color Me 6×6.  Love the versatility of the black + white designs!

I used a bloom from Bloom Builder and topped it off with an enamel dot.  For added dimension I cut an oval yellow felt shape.  The cupcake from Bday Bash has been colored with alcohol markers.  I finished off my card with a sentiment from the same set, heat embossed in white on a black strip of cardstock.

I hope you’re having a sweet week!

#52favorites spread

Good morning everyone!  Kat here today to share my most recent #52favorites spread with you.  Unfortunately, I am about 4 weeks behind in this project right now.  Every time that I think I’m almost caught up, something happens and I am thrown off course again.  Oh well.  At least the Pattern Happy products make it easy to create quick, yet attractive spreads 🙂

For this spread, I focused on the fun summer colors of blue, green and yellow.  I even used an old-school hole punch to make a sprinkling of yellow confetti across the page.  I used paper from the 6×6 Robots paper pad and 6×6 Rainbows paper pad and I really like the end result.

Have you started scrapping any of your summer photos yet?

Playing with the June Super Sketch!

Hi Pattern Happy fans!  It’s Amy here sharing a card today.  I don’t know about you but I love color.  The Suntiments Clear Stamp set is so fun!  Topping it off with that sweet smile makes makes me a happy crafter!

The clouds are from the Colorful Day Clear Stamp.  I love the polka dots!

I used a strip of a panel from the Color Me 6×6 Paper Pad.  I love the black + white palette in the paper collection.  It makes the colored images POP.

My sentiment is a combo from the Mini Greeting Clear Stamp + Friend Word Die.

Here’s the awesome June Sketch:

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you’re having a fantastic June!

June Super Sketch

Hi everyone, Laurel here with another sketch challenge for you.  Don’t forget you have all month to play along and there is a prize up for grabs to one lucky participant!

Here is the card that I created for it:

I am looking ahead to summer what about you?  I decided to use the Rainbows collection, such fun happy patterns and colors.

The popsicles are of course from the Coolest Ever die.  I just die cut them, pieced together and then mounted on foam squares.   The stamped sentiment is from the Colorful Day stamp set.  I then used a ‘sweet’ die from my stash.

To add some interest, I just adhered some coordinating buttons and tied on some twine.

Products used:

Paper: Rainbows;

Die: Coolest Ever

Stamp: Colorful Day

Now we would love to see what you create with the sketch:

Two Cards | One Stamp Set

Hi all, it’s Amy!  I’m sharing a card duo that features the Mini Nuts and Bolts set.  I love how just a change in the ink color can really shake up a card design.

Here’s a ‘traditional’ look:

Traditional translating to real life colors.  Nuts and bolts tend to be silver so I went with a cement color and a black sentiment from the Best Bots set.

Here’s the non-traditional version.  I love the look of the neon ombre ink:

Honestly, in my household generally I don’t go with traditional.  I adore color and love to spread the happiness.  What about you?

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you’re having a great week!

Quick & Easy & Personalized Thank You Cards

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!!  Kat here today to share with you some very quick & easy thank you cards.

The We Are Family stamp set is perfect for creating simple, yet customized cards.  My child is spoiled rotten by the rest of our family, so we send a lot of thank you notes.  I whipped up some quick and easy ones by picking out some cute patterned papers from a variety of Pattern Happy paper pads and adding a simple sentiment on some cardstock.  As a final touch, I added one heart (cut from the All Heart set) on top of each of the sentiments and a star sequin to add a little sparkle.

Here is the final result….and the best part?  I whipped these up in about 5 minutes!

Thanks so much for stopping in!

For the boys…

Hi everyone, Laurel here with a boy themed card.  I have 2 grown girls and a 3 year old grand daughter so I don’t use a lot of boy cards.  But I do give cards to the students in my grade one class thus boy cards are needed sometimes.

Now what little boy wouldn’t love a card with a little robot on it?!   I have used the Best Bots stamp and die set along with the Robots pattern paper.

I wanted it to look like the little robot was being carried away by the balloons (from the Best Bots die).  I have also mounted him on foam squares for dimension.

To create the sentiment.  I taped off part of the sentiment from the Best Bots stamp set and cut it apart.  I inserted the Birthday word from the Birthday die.

Now… once again, being that it is Saturday… I have a sketch up on my blog for this card.  Come play along!

Party Treat Bags with Khristina

Hey everybody!

This weekend, my daughter is having a birthday pool party at our house (the dreaded party at home, am I right?!) I am giving each kiddo a drink tumbler and a beach towel but I wanted a little something fun to go along with it. Enter my amazing Pattern Happy stamps and some leftover sequins from the collaboration that we did with SpiegelMom Scraps for interNational Scrapbooking Day!

I started out with a plain piece of white cardstock and a little pre-made shaker box in the shape of a cloud. Using that cloud as a template, I created a template out of scraps of paper that I could use as a mask.

Then, I went ahead and used the cloud background stamp to create the details that were going to go all over my yardstick. Using the Stamp Platform made this super simple!

Once the stamping was one, I just removed that little scrap paper cloud in order to leave my space for the shaker box to be attached.(*Just a note: I purposely left the cloud stamping messy looking and faded as this goes with the rest of the party decor.)

I filled up that little shaker box with sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps (these are those leftovers I mentioned) and then added some splatters of Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine. I added a few little gold mirror heart stickers as well as the word “Dream” and simply grabbed a tiny clothespin and hooked it to the front of the treat bag full of goodies.

And that was it! Super simple and easy way to create a fun look and dress up those treat bags without a lot of work. I would love to see what you are doing with the amazing background stamps from Pattern Happy so make sure to tag me!

xoxo,

Khristina
