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!

Products used:

Stamps: Colorful Day

Dies: Coolest Ever, Mini Containers

Paper: Geofetti

How to create a Mother’s Day card with a 3 year old

Hi everyone, I have a quick card to share with you today.  I babysit my 3 year old grand daughter on the weekends so we sometimes get crafty.  The papers in the Rainbows collection are so pretty, I decided we could make a card for her mommy.

I let her choose the papers, she chose the purple hearts because her mom’s favorite color is purple 🙂  Anyways, I decided to then let her have a part in the process so I added the heart paper from the Color Me collection

I then had her help me stamp and die cut the hearts from the All Heart set.  I added a face from the Suntiments set to one of the hearts.   The ‘mom’ is from the We Are Family stamp set.

Now I just added the hearts onto the card with glue dots for the photo.  Shortly after this I removed the hearts and let my grand daughter color the background paper and the stamped heart (the mom is adhered with glue dots as well) – she loves to color and couldn’t wait to do so! I then reassembled it and now we are ready for Mother’s day.  So needless to say, the card doesn’t look like this anymore 😉  but she loves it and is proud of it.

 

Products used:

Paper: Rainbows; Color Me

Stamps: All Heart; SuntimentsWe Are Family

Dies: All Heart

That’s it for me today.  Have a great day.

New month, new sketch….come play along

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 what I came up with:

Isn’t the sun from the Suntiments so cute?  I stamped the image then used the corresponding die to cut it out.   The cloud was die cut using the Colorful Day Die.

I then thought the little bee from the Mini Bee stamp set would look cute flying by.  I stamped cut it out and mounted it and the sun on foam squares.

I added the die cut word Happy using the Happy Word Die.

So that is my interpretation of the sketch, would love to see what you do with it!

Products used:

Pattern Paper: Color Me;   Rainbows; Robots;

Stamps: Suntiments; Mini Bee

Bday Bash Shaker Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Laurel here again.  I don’t know about you, but the funny thing is… I hardly ever make birthday cards! I go in spurts, but for the most part they are not ones I usually make.

I do like to give birthday cards to the students in my class (I teach grade one), thus I am working on building my stash… the Pattern Happy stamps and papers are so perfect for kids birthday cards!

I am sharing a girl themed card – little girls often like pink, purple and sparkly.  So what little girl would love this card, complete with shaker – which I seem to be on a kick of lately too 😉

I kept it pretty simple really – have you seen how 6 or 7 year olds put things into their backpacks? LOL

I used a mixture of papers from the Geofetti, Rainbows and Color Me papers – love how they are so easy to mix and match.

I die cut the birthday using the Birthday Word die then stapled it on.

I paper pieced the cupcake from the Bday Bash stamp set and mounted it on foam squares.   Finally, I die cut a sentiment from the set using the Mini Containers.

Thanks for visiting…. and oh… if you like the sketch of this card… check out my Sketchy Saturday post… come play along!

 

 

Coolest Ever Birthday Cards

Hello Friends!

It’s Kristine with you today and I have some super cute cards to share with you! Summer is coming .. slowly but surely on the East Coast and it’s time to start thinking about bright colors and yummy Popsicles!
I created 2 similar cards using papers from the Rainbows Paper Pad and the Coolest Ever Clear Stamp Set. I also used birthday phrases from the Bday Bash Clear Stamp.

I first stamped the images on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine ink. I colored with Zig Clean Color Markers (My favs!) then used the Coolest Ever Dies to finish the images with a clean cut.  Since I love popdots so much I added some on the back of both popsicles.

I added a birthday sentiment but anything goes with these cute images. You could do so many other fun titles with the words and phrases included in the Coolest Ever Clear Stamp set.

I hope you like my examples using these cute stamps and please come join us on social media! @PatternHappy & myself @KristineDavidson

Talk to you again soon!

Rainbow Inspired Card

Hi all, it’s Amy here with you today sharing some rainbow goodness.  I am slowly building a birthday card stash so that I don’t have to frantically design one at the last minute.  Are birthday cards something that you generally design?  For some reason they aren’t for me.  I like to think I scored bonus points for this gender neutral design:

Rainbows make me a happy crafter, how about you?  I started with a panel from the Robots 6×6 Paper Pad.  I adhered it to a red card base.  Truthfully I buy my card bases already cut/scored.

I inked up those sweet cupcakes from the Bday Bash Clear Stamp set.  I was inspired by my teamie Laurel and paper pieced their tops with papers from the Rainbows +Robots 6×6 Paper Pads.  Their cupcake liners and the party hat have been colored with alcohol markers.

I’d love to find out what are your go-to cards that you design?  I love ‘just because’ or ‘hello’.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Best Bots Birthday Cards

Hello Friends! It’s Kristine here and I am super excited to be sharing my first post as a Design Team member for Pattern Happy. We are going to inspire you with some super cute projects and I hope you visit us often for creative ideas!

Today I am sharing 2 cards I created using these super cute stamps! I used the Bday Bash Clear Stamp  & Best Bots Clear Stamp, both can be used individually, but I wanted a cute Happy Birthday Card for my nephew so I used both sets.

I didn’t use any patterned papers for my cards, but a little blue or even pink would be super cute. I colored the robots in a neutral grey using some Zig Clean Color Markers and also used some popdots for some dimension.

This BEST BOTS clear stamp set is sooooo NUTS! It’s really cute and can be used for Love Notes, Birthday, Thinking of You and the list goes on!

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure you follow us on Social Media! We love Instagram @PatternHappy (#patternhappy) and you can visit my personal account @KristineDavidson. 

Ciao for Now!

A couple of bright happy cards

Hi everyone, Laurel here today with a couple of fun cards.  I run a sketch challenge on my blog every Saturday and both of these cards are different takes on this week’s sketch.  Hop on over to my blog to see the sketch.

First off, with all the rain we have been having this spring… I just had to play with the Rainbows paper pad  , Colorful Day stamp set and Colorful Day Die.

I made the clouds into shakers which is easy when you use Adhesive Foam sheets and die cut the shape with that.

I then went for a different look.  I used the black confetti paper from the Geofetti  collection and went with a birthday card.   I then added a strip of grid paper from the Color Me Happy collection.

I seem to be on a shaker card kick as of late…. I think it is my ever growing supply of sequins and my barely ever using them that is making me do it.

Anyways the paper in the Rainbows collection worked well for lemons don’t you think?  I then stamped one of them with the Bday Bash stamp set.

That’s it for me today. Thanks for stopping by. If you want to see the sketch, head on over to my blog.
