Fathers Day with Cheery Lynn Designs, Canvas Corp & 7 gypsies

15 Jun
Since Father’s day is just a couple of days away, I wanted to make a special card for the man many children in my house call DAD!!
I am using lots of things from Canvas Corp and 7 Gypsies.
I used the 7 gypsies stamp sets called Numero and Ephemera.
I am so in love with these 2 stamp sets!  You will be seeing me use them a lot in the upcoming months!
The Numero set has so many fun surprises, I had a blast using that set for this card!
You can see that I took the die called Window C and used it as my focal point.  The Window not only worked as my base but also worked for me to clip the bits and pieces of embellishments to the card with the red Canvas Corp mini clothespins.
I backed the frame with the Zig Zag border and used the leftover scraps from cutting the Lace Light Deco Border.  As you can see, the leftovers work like a mini banner.
I have the banner hanging from some red waxed cotton Canvas Corp Cord.
I used the Scalloped Square set for my tags that you see hanging with the clothespins.
All of the paper you see is from Canvas Corp.  Their paper is well, do you have a lifetime so I can tell you about how much I LOVE IT???
All in all…..
I love the way this card turned out.  It is truly a one of a kind card and thanks to the supplies that I used it is also personalized with dates and phrases that will be meaningful to the recipient.
I hope you have a great weekend.  Enjoy your fathers, brothers, grandpas, sons or whomever you share your weekend with.

Quick and Simple Father’s Day Card

9 Jun

If you are here for DAY TWO of the

I HEART {ippity} BLOG HOP...CLICK HERE!!!!!

This is my first post for my work with Joy’s Life Summer Design Team.
I have a fun and quick Father’s Day Card to share today.
If you have a lot of cards you need to make this is a design you could sit down and make a dozen or so very quickly.
I just took a basic origami tie and adhered it to some mounted decorative papers.


Using this adorable sentiment from the You’re So Punny Stamps set.
I embossed it in a matching blue to coordinate everything together.
What do you think?  I love the way this turned out.
I hope you have a great week end.  This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

Masculine Card with Tutorial

8 Jun
Hello everyone..Jeannie here with a little tutorial with a different variation of the card I made last week.
Last week I used the REFLECTIONS SCALLOPED CIRCLES to make this card.
Today, I am using the REFLECTIONS MINI PEAR: FRENCH FLAIR for my card.
To start, I cut out 4 squares using the 4th largest die and then one square for the card base with the 5th largest die.
Here are the cut papers all stacked up, you can see the base is just one size larger than the card pieces.
Take each card piece(not the base) and fold them in half down the middle.
Adhere them to the card base, forming a cross type pattern, shown here.
Two pieces are on the bottom,
the other two are on the top.
Here is what it looks like from the back with the base facing up.
To fold the card closed, start with the right flap, then the bottom,
then the left flap,
then fold the top down and tuck half of it under the the flap your first folded in.
This is the same way you fold packing boxes, get it?
Here it is, all closed up and ready to embellish.
So my card is dedicated to that theme.
I used the SCALLOPED SQUARE NESTING DIES for my card front panels.
I also used the Dotties Ric Rac and Ribbon Eyelet dies for some extra embellishing.
All of the paper and stamps are from CLOSE TO MY HEART.
All of my inks are from Stampin’ Up!
Doesn’t this card remind you of that Route 66 song?
I think it is the perfect MANLY card!
I hope you have enjoyed this brief tutorial today.

Manly Word Games Card

2 May
Today I am using a set I just received called:  Where You Should Be
I wanted to be part of 2 different challenges with this.  One challenge is for the Unity Opportunity Blog.
It is their NOTHING GIRLY challenge.
The other challenge is over on Practical Scrappers.  The Challenge is called WORD GAMES.
It was quite a challenge not to incorporate Nothing Girly on here, but I think I did alright!
The WORD GAME challenge was a fun one to follow to.
So there you have it, my Wednesday Wowzer.  I just love working with {ippity} stamps, if you have not had a chance, you are really missing out!
