Have I mentioned how much I love the new Epic Day DSP from Stampin’ Up!? Yeah, I thought so. And the This’n’That notebook and the washi tape and the rotary stamp and the stickers that go with it? Okay, then. Did you order it yet? I’m using my journal to write down the funny things my kids say, along with fun photos of them Because pretty soon they’ll be obnoxious teenagers and I won’t think their smart aleck remarks are funny.
Back to the paper… I love it for card-crafting, too. It’s a little grunge, a little cozy, and a lot of color.
Supplies: WooHoo Single Stamp; Epic Day DSP; Pool Party and Whisper White Cardstock; Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Gumball Green, and Daffodil Delight markers; Calypso Coral Ribbon; Hung Up Cute Clips; Corner Rounder Punch
This WooHoo stamp is available through the end of July in the single stamp section of the online catalog. Did you know those even were there? Lots of fun stamps, sold all by themselves. You can check it out on my Stampin’ Up! website.
And how cute is that clip? Maybe that’s why they’re called Hung Up Cute Clips. You get 8 each of tiny little hangers, arrows, and speech bubbles. I added a snippet of ribbon for a little punch of color and texture.
And then I made this one, with the scraps of paper left on my desk:
Supplies: From My Heart stamp set; Epic Day DSP; Pool Party and Whisper White Cardstock; Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Gumball Green markers
I thought about using my Big Shot and a Framelit to cut out the focal piece, but decided fussy-cutting it with paper snips would be better. And it took just a minute to do, without getting out any other supplies. I realize it’s not perfect, but am telling myself that adds to the charm of the card.
I’ve spent way too much time playing with my new goodies from Stampin’ Up!…but I just have no willpower to avoid the temptation. And I want to avoid all of my moving chores, so it’s an easy choice! I hope you’re enjoying your summer days, too, doing just what you like!
