GLITTER QUEEN BLOG HOP -- DAY THREE

HI STAMPERS:  I AM LOVING ALL THE FUN PROJECTS AND IDEAS FROM MY FELLOW DEMONSTRATORS, AREN'T YOU??

THIS IS THE THIRD AND FINAL DAY OF OUR BLOG HOP AND I HATE TO SEE IT END.  BUT SINCE YOU ARE ALL FOLLOWERS OF MY BLOG, I HOPE YOU WILL CONTINUE TO COME BACK TO VISIT WEEKLY TO SEE WHAT NEW CARD OR PROJECT I HAVE MADE.


HERE IS MY FUN SUMMER BIRTHDAY CARD.  IT USES THE FOLLOWING ITEMS, ALL TO BE FOUND IN THE NEW CATALOG:

DESIGNER PAPER:  PATIO PARTY DSP
PUNCHES:  SCALLOP EDGE PUNCH, BUILD A CUPCAKE PUNCH
CARD STOCK:  PINK PIROUETTE, BAJA BREEZE, PRIMROSE PETALS, RASPBERRY RIPPLE,
VERY VANILLA
INK:  PRIMROSE PETALS
STAMP SET:  NEW HOSTESS SET "A CHERRY ON TOP"

HERE IS A CLOSEUP OF THE CUTE PATIO PARTY DSP AND THE CUTE CUPCAKE.  THE PAPER WRAPPER OF THE CUPCAKE IS THE BACK OF THE DSP YOU SEE ON THE LEFT.  FRONT OR BACK - THEY ARE ALL PERFECT FOR OUR PROJECTS.

 STAMPIN' UP! PUNCHES ARE SO EASY TO USE AND WONDERFUL FOR THAT LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA WE NEED ON OUR PROJECTS.


FOR THE INSIDE OF THE CARD, I PUNCHED THE CUPCAKE WITH BAJA BREEZE CARD STOCK FOR THE BOTTOM AND PRIMROSE PETALS FOR THE ICING - WITH A BAJA BREEZE CHERRY.


MY NEXT CARD IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT FREE-CUTTING THE SHAPE OF MY CARD.  THERE IS NO DIE OR PUNCH THAT I KNOW OF TO MAKE THIS CUTE CARD.  IF THERE IS, PLEASE TELL ME IN THE COMMENTS BELOW, WON'T YOU?

 WHAT IS SUMMER TIME WITHOUT FLIP FLOPS?  I CUT MY CAMEO CORAL CARD STOCK IN THE SHAPE OF A FLIP FLOP.


I ADDED SO SAFFRON GROSGRAIN RIBBON FOR THE TOE PART OF THE SHOE.  I USED A 3/4" CIRCLE PUNCH TO PUNCH OUT THE CUTE BLOSSOM FROM MY DSP.

 INSIDE, I PUT THE DSP ON THE TOP OF THE CARD TO COVER WHERE I ATTACHED THE RIBBON.  ON THE BOTTOM I USED WHISPER WHITE WITH MY STAMPED SENTIMENT "CELEBRATE TODAY" FROM THE PERFECTLY PENNED STAMP SET AND THREE PUNCHED BLOSSOMS FOR DECORATION.  I ALSO SPONGED SO SAFFRON INK AROUND THE EDGE OF MY FLIP FLOP.

HERE IS A CLOSEUP SO YOU CAN SEE THE STAMPED IMAGE BETTER AND THE 3 CUTE BLOSSOMS.

I JUST COULDN'T LET THIS BLOG END WITHOUT POSTING A MANLY CARD FOR FATHER'S DAY COMING UP IN A FEW WEEKS.

THIS EASEL CARD IS MADE WITH A BASE OF NOT QUITE NAVY CARDSTOCK.  THE DSP  I AM GOING TO MISS THE MOST IN THE NEW CATALOG... RETIRING NAUTICAL EXPEDITION.  THE NOT QUITE NAVY AND REAL RED OF THE PAPERS ARE SO GOOD FOR MALE CARDS. I LOVE THE ANTIQUE MAP DESIGNS IN THIS PACK.  LOOK HOW CUTE THE WORLD MAP LOOKS AND THE LIGHTHOUSE FROM THE DSP.


I USED SHIMMERY WHITE FOR THE PAPER WHERE I STAMPED THE BOAT.  THAT IS WHY YOU SEE IT IN THE PHOTO SO BRIGHT.  BUT IN PERSON IT HAS A REAL SHIMMER TO IT.  I POPPED UP THE BILLOWING SAIL ON DIMENSIONALS TO MAKE IT BILLOW IN THE WIND.

WHAT'S THAT I SEE ON THE INSIDE OF THIS CARD?  TWO NEW ITEMS FOR YOU TO BE ABLE TO PURCHASE STARTING JUNE 1ST.  THE STAMP SET CALLED LAYERED LABELS AND THE FRAMELITS-APOTHECARY ACCENTS DIES. THEY MATCH PERFECTLY TO THIS STAMP SET.  FOUR FRAMELITS DIES TO CUT OUT THE STAMPS.

I ALSO USED SOME RED STRIPED BAKERS TWINE TO MAKE THE MANLY BOW.


THIS FOLDS UP TO FIT A STANDARD SIZED ENVELOPE.

MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE ME A COMMENT SO YOU CAN BE ENTERED INTO THE BLOG CANDY GIVE AWAY.  YOU MUST BE A FOLLOWER AND LEAVE A COMMENT ON ALL THREE POSTS.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DEMONSTRATOR, I HOPE YOU WILL CONSIDER USING ME FOR ALL YOUR STAMPING AND CRAFTING NEEDS.
