One Of A Kind Sweetness

30 Jul
Hello and Happy Monday.
I am here with my last post for July for Joy’s and we have been using a couple of different stamp sets.
I choose to use Sweet Popsicle Puns.
When I first got this set, I was so excited.  I mean could this set be any cuter?
For this card, I started my taking 2 of the Popsicle stamps and stamped them in 2 different colors. You can see the idea was to have 3 identical and 1 different than the other 3.
Then I embossed the phrase “you’re one of a kind” in black and ruffled some crepe paper behind the mounted phrase to make the phrase really stand out.
A couple of of special embellishments here and there really make this card really extra special.
I love the whimsical polka dots and color scheme, don’t you??
Well, are you ready for the new week and the new month?  Brace yourself, both are upon us!!

Altered Mini Paint Can

23 Jul
I am excited to share what I have come up with today for Joy’s  
This week we are focusing on creative ways to use the Tins that you can find in the Joy’s Life Products section on Joys
As you can see I have created this adorable little tin using some stamps from the YUMMY PUNS set.
This in the perfect gift for a friend since hidden inside you will find, chocolate!
One of my favorite things to do with my projects is to embellish with jewelry making supplies.
The baubles and beads where the perfect touch to this tin of chocolate covered pretzels, don’t you agree?
I already know who this is going to…A special friend will get a surprise delivery from me, hoping that I find her home that is!!

Welcome Little Baby Sunshine

17 Jul
If you have been following us this week over on Joys Life Design Team, you know we are focusing one SHAPED CARDS.
My shaped card, as you can see, is a bottle.
Using the PUN IN THE SUN stamp set, I embossed the phrase “Hello Sunshine” onto the card.

I then made my own sunshine peeking from underneath the bottle rim.

The green words are just printed off the computer to match the color scheme of the card.
I just love how this all came together.  Wouldn’t this make an adorable card for a new baby?
I hope you have enjoyed  my card today..this has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
Most of the card supplies are from an older Deena Ziegler Kit I had.

Fishytime Summer Fun

11 Jul
I have a fun project to share to day.
This is a little box that can easily be made up in no time at all.
We are focusing using the stamp new set from Joys called Pun in the Sun.

I am using lots of fun papers from Canvas Corp.
I used 3 different stamps from the stamp set.  Isn’t that little boat adorable?
When you pull the “drawer” open it reveals some more paper fish and some gummy sharks as a surprise.
The drawer could be used for so many different things and would even be big enough to hold small cookies, candles, soaps etc.
I love the way this turned out and think the stamps go perfectly with the fish and the bright and colorful papers.
Who wouldn’t be excited to get a small surprise like this?
I hope you have enjoyed my “idea”..this has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

Quick Gift Ideas With Joy’s Life Stamps

4 Jul
Hello and Happy 4th of July everyone.
I am here to share a quick couple of gift ideas.
I am using the set called YUMMY PUNS.
This is a cute little box I found the pattern on SplitcoastStampers.
I filled the box with strawberry licorice and added the “berry best wishes” sentiment to the box.
Perfect touch.  I love having all these sentiments, it seems I have a sentiment for everything now.
My next project is this little piece of cake gift box.
Again, using a phrase from the Yummy Pun set.
This would be the perfect touch for a bridal shower, little girl party, tea party etc.
These gift boxes were quick and easy to throw together and decorate.  Using Joy’s Life stamps, I was sure to have the perfect sentiment to go along with the box! 
Hopefully I’ve given you some fun ideas to try sometime soon!
Have a great holiday.  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

Bold and Bright Wedding Card

29 Jun
Since the current Challenge over at Joy’s Life Design Team is using the colors Orange, Turquoise and Yellow, and over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog, the current Challenge is Wedding and/or Anniversary, I combined the challenges for my post today.  So my challenge was to make a wedding card using the colors, Orange, Turquoise and Yellow.

Here is what I came up with Joy’s Life Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.
I started by cutting my background pieces with the Scalloped Rectangles.  I embossed the Turquoise paper with the Dotted Swiss Embossing Plate and the Orange paper with the Black Eyed Susan Embossing Plate.
I made the pears out of the smallest of the eggs in the Nesting Eggs set.  I then just altered the egg to make it look more like a pear and less like and egg.
I embellished the rest of the card with Pretty Petals

The cute phrase is actually 2 parts of 2 different phrases combined to make this perfect wedding card.
Bot phrases are from a set called Yummy Puns by Joy’s Life Stamps.
I hope you have enjoyed my offbeat humor in my project today.
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
Forgot to mention that the pears are cut from Authentiqe Paper Blissful’s  line and embossed with Burble/Cheesecloth Embossing Plate!
