Also in honor of Karen's Birthday, Julie has brought the team together for a Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!!
I've had zero mojo lately, but I couldn't miss Karen's birthday! For those of you that have not had the pleasure of knowing her, she is absolutely the sweetest, most generous boss in the industry!
Here is the clean and simple card I made for her today...
I colored up one of the adorable Hammie's from Hammie Coffee and Tea, and paired him with a sweet sentiment from the Picnic Phoebe set. And, yes, I realize I colored his cookie blue!! I have no idea what kind of cookie that could be, but it matched the paper! :P
Be sure to hop along to see what the rest of the team has created for the Surprise Birthday Hop! And don't forget to wish Karen a happy day!!
It's Designer Showcase Week at Your Next Stamp!!
With less than two weeks to go until Halloween, we are sharing our ideas for some fun Halloween treats!
If even you don't do Halloween, these awesome ideas can be adapted for other holidays, or any special occasion! Be sure to keep an eye on the YNS Blog this week for loads of treat ideas!
I found some cute Test Tube Treat Kits in the Dollar Spot at Target... I love peeking through this section for seasonal goodies! This package included 4 test tubes with cork stoppers, twine, and tags. I tossed the cheapy tags that were included, and made my own to attach to the tubes with the Winter Fun Tag Die Set.
I filled the tubes with Hershey's Kisses, and some little plastic spiders (I picked up a pack of these a couple of years ago at the Dollar Tree for decorating something else, and I still have a bunch left!!) Then I used the spider image and a sentiment from the Bitty Bugs Stamp Set to decorate the tag. The web was cut using black glittered cardstock and the Happy Haunting Die Set.
These were pretty quick to pull together, and now I have some special treats for the kiddos and hubby for Halloween! :)
Be sure to check out the YNS Blog to see what the rest of the team has created!
Enjoy the inspiration during Designer Showcase Week!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Tuesday friends!!
Today, I'm sharing another card I made for my Guest Designer gig at Stamp Anniething!
This time, I colored up the adorable Holly - Sweet Dreams. Isn't she a cutie?!? I wanted to paper piece her pajama's, and I thought this dainty plaid from the Doodlebug Bunnyville 6x6 Pad was perfect! I added a sentiment from an old There She Goes stamp set, and finished it off with some enamel dots.
Wouldn't this make a cute slumber party invitation??
