Wacky Watercooler October Blog Hop

Finally made time to join this wonderful blog hop again, the Wacky Watercooler!

2016-october-banner

Our theme is fall, of course!

I created a nice little array of items.

The first is a simple, elegant card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Seasons, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Gold Foil, Thanksgiving card

Love these colors together! Very elegant and classy!

The third is a wonderful interactive card –

libbystamps, stampin up, slider card, Kraft Rope Trim, Layering Ovals Framelits, Halloween Night Specialty DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Cookie Cutter Halloween

Pull up on the viewable area to see this –

…and did you see that the adorable main focal image moved up to?

Lastly, I always make some sort of Gratitude Journal for myself and as a Card Buffet item around this time. Here is the one for this year –

libbystamps, stampin up, Seasonal Frame Thinlits, Copper Foil, Kraft Tag A Bag Gift Bags, Vintage Leaves, Leaflets Framelits, Season Frame Thinlits

Inside it has 10 sheets of paper to notate what you are ‘grateful’ for. This is one of our Tag A Bag Gift Bags folded over and decorated.

I would love to read what you think about my Blog Hop projects before moving on to the next blog! And, if you attend my Card Buffet this weekend, you may or may not see these projects again, just sayin’!

Navy Thanks, Stepped Up Sunday

So, You saw what I showed yesterday, right?

Nice elegant navy thank you card?

And, I bet you were wondering, just how does that get any better? 

Like this –

libbystamps, stampin up, slider card, Thankful Thoughts, Floral Boutique DSP, Layering Circles Framelits, Stepped Up Sunday

Doesn’t tell you much or seem too different does it? Really, you just added a circle at the top?

How about now?

libbystamps, stampin up, slider card, Thankful Thoughts, Floral Boutique DSP, Layering Circles Framelits, Stepped Up Sunday

That little half circle is an indication to pull up on the card.

I figured you could just see them all next to each other to get the effect!

Pretty cool, huh?

So these ended up being my official customer thank you’s.

Maybe tomorrow I might have a tutorial!

Sliding by Birthday Wishes, WWC83

I haven’t had the chance to post the past few day. Life. Crazy. You know that feeling…..

But, its Wednesday and time for another wonderful challenge to inspire you from Watercooler Wednesday!

This week, a challenge by Penny –

These Tic Tac Toe challenges are SO much fun!

…..but, so many choices. I actually made two lines from the choices in my card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Celebrate Today, Playful Palette, Balloon Framelits, WWC, Slider Card

Looks like an average card, right?

Well. Pull on the ribbon –

libbystamps, stampin up, Celebrate Today, Playful Palette, Balloon Framelits, WWC, Slider Card

Keep pulling –

libbystamps, stampin up, Celebrate Today, Playful Palette, Balloon Framelits, WWC, Slider Card

Notice how the balloon goes up with the pulling!!

Scroll back up if you need to!

So. I got a diagonal down. Fun Fold. Birthday Theme. Die Cut.

And, a straight down the center. Balloons. Birthday. Banner.

The green I started with and that took the card here, but didn’t really achieve anything on the board!

I’d love to hear read what you think of this nifty fold!

Head on over to Watercooler Wednesday and join us! These Tic Tac Toe boards are soooo cool!

Supplies used –

  • Stamp Sets – Celebrate Today
  • Ink – Emeral Envy, Daffodil Delight
  • Card Stock – Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla

Mini Kiss Slider

Ok, Ok, I know I haven’t been posting on a regular basis – makes me sad too.

Let’s just say, computer issues…..

So, would a kiss make it better? A mini kiss, so to speak?

Take a look –

At my last class, I had a request to show how to make a reusable slider Treat Cup card. I used the Heart Treat Cup, of course, and some new ribbon from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Here is a close up showing the chocolate chip ‘kisses’ in the heart –

Everyone was thrilled with this card. And, it was not so difficult to make, was it?

Supplies. Petite Pairs Stamp Set. Early Espresso Ink. Blushing Bride and Whisper White card stock. Twitterpated DSP. Full Heart Punch . 1″ Square Punch. Scalloped Edge Border Punch. Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Blushing Bride 3/8″ Pleated Satin Ribbon. Heart Treat Cups.

So, need to send ‘A little Kiss’ to someone???

Happy Stampin’
