Good ‘Ol Fashioned Summer with Therm O Web


Seems I am still keeping quite the wacky posting schedule these days, but at least there looks to be a light at the end of the tunnel. After working a full-time schedule this spring, I am finally back to part-time…. and that means more time for play in the good ‘ol craft room! I sure have been missing my paper. Now I just need to carve out a date with my piles of fabric..


I love me some Americana for the summer months, and with the 4th of July quickly approaching, I’ve been having fun playing with Photo Play Paper’s adorable Red, White, & Blue collection. Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be sharing lots of patriotic projects with you, starting today with a petite 3.5×5 card I made for the Therm O Web blog featuring Fancy Foil fun from GinaK Designs.


I love a bit of sparkling foil for the Fourth. Perfect accent for fireworks and parades. This technique is super easy to do with just the use of a simple foiling pen, and better yet, doesn’t require the use of a heat laminator. You can check out the Therm O Web blog for details on that, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Let’s BBQ with Photo Play Paper

 


Hi friends, happy Father’s Day! Hope you have plans for the day to celebrate all those special men in your lives. Today is a great day for a BBQ, isn’t it? Perfect time to share this last masculine guy card I made this week for Photo Play Paper featuring their fabulous Man Card collection.


It’s not often I get to spend Father’s Day in person with my dad, so I am feeling particularly blessed this year. We actually had our big celebration yesterday, so that the whole family could get together. And yes, I did barbecue for my dad….. ribs and corn on the cob, topped off with a homemade apple pie. Such a happy day.


I thought this BBQ card would go along perfectly with our menu for the day. Lots of fun plaids and die cuts, layered with journaling cards and crisp black cardstock. I added a pair of crisscrossed stickers tied with twine to the front of the card, and finished off with another pair for the inside.

If you’re on Photo Play’s mailing list, you will have received the instructions for my cards in your inbox this week. If you missed it, you can CLICK HERE for the instructions and HERE for the free cut files.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Stud Muffin with Photo Play Paper


Happy Friday, friends! I’m back today with another masculine guy card to share. This time, a shaped card I made for Photo Play Paper using their awesome Man Card collection. And if you’re on their mailing list, you would have received the free cutting file and downloadable instructions for this project in your inbox this week.


I don’t often make shaped cards, so this was a lot of fun for me, and I think the sailboat shape is perfect for Father’s Day this weekend. I used a mix of three patterned papers to create the hull and sails, and then fashioned some rigging using flag stickers popped up with foam tape. Added a simple twine loop to finish the line. The wave at the bottom of the boat is the negative of the scalloped border I die cut from the solid navy blue section of one of the cut-apart journaling cards.


This sailboat pattern is available as a free cutting file, which you can download here. And you can find the step-by-step directions for this project here, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful Father’s Day weekend with all those special stud muffins out there!

So Handsome with Therm O Web


I recently got my hands on the adorable Man Card collection from Photo Play Paper, and thought it would be perfect for making some guy cards for Father’s Day this year. I mixed in Fancy Foil accents from GinaK Designs in a distressed and chippy style that works well for masculine designs, and put together a trio of cards for the Therm O Web blog this week. And today I wanted to share the first of them here with you.


The images and sentiments in this line really do make me smile, and I love the vintage look and muted colors, too. Such a perfect match for this Wild Dandelion gold foil. I used the foil adhesive pen to add a frame of glue around the edge of my cardstock mat, and then simply pressed the foil onto the adhesive when dry. This is a great way to add foiled accents to basically any project, without the need of a heat laminator.

I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial, along with another pair of masculine cards, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Wishing you all a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Recipe for Fun with Therm O Web & Waffle Flower Crafts

It’s been a big day already here at my house. We had a tree company out this morning to remove three big trees from the back yard that had become quite too massive for the space. With sixteen trees planted in an half-acre yard, things were beginning to feel a bit closed in. What’s amazing to me is how gigantic trees could become in ten years, and how anyone could manage to cut them down and haul them away in only half an hour. These days, I can hardly make a simple decision in that amount of time! 😉


Last week, the Therm O Web team had the great fun of joining up with our friends at Waffle Flower Crafts. I shared the first card I made for the swap here already (click here to see that post), and today I’m back with number two. Another chef card from Big Bear & Bird. This time, Bear has whipped up some recipes for summer fun.


I do love that silly old bear! He has been colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the matching dies. Did some paper piecing for his gingham apron and hat. I don’t know about you all, but gingham just screams summer to me. Puts me in mind of a little outdoor picnic or bbq.


I added in die cut floral accents, and arranged my scene onto some stacked die shapes from GinaK Designs. The paper is once again from Simple Stories’ Summer Days collection.


I’ve got more details and step-by-step directions up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all are having lots of summer fun in your neck of the woods!

Cheers to You with Ranger Ink


Hello everyone, happy Friday! Just like that, another week has zipped by in the blink of an eye. It has been my usual busy here between work and family visiting, and this week, my dad and I have tackled some pretty hefty yard work limbing trees and sawing the branches into bundles. I’m feeling a bit worse for the wear physically, but I love how clean and open things are looking now. My poor parents come for a little vacation, and get put to work instead. Ha!


Today I have the great pleasure of sharing a card that I made for the Ranger Ink blog. My focus this time was Ranger’s fabulous Letter It product line, which I used here mixed with some Tim Holtz stamps and dies.


The Letter It line is a very complete collection of paper crafting products, including cardstock and tags, stamps, inks, markers and mediums, and some of the most beautiful embossing powders and opalescent powders around. Just look at the amazing silver sparkle on that background panel. And I love the handwritten script font of the stamps, too. I combined two of the Letter It stamp sets to create the fun text background here, and then layered the panel with a lacy vellum overlay, die cut with one of Tim’s Mixed Media die sets.


I used the die cut vellum as a stencil first to create the inked pattern on the Letter It tag, and then added a mason jar and floral sprigs from the Flower Jar set to finish off the tag. I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Ranger Ink blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Waffleflower Week at Therm O Web

Hey, hey everyone! Happy Tuesday to you! Hope my friends and family in the States had a lovely long holiday weekend. We have been getting deluged with rain from Subtropical Depression Alberto here in my neck of the woods, but we still had a wonderful Memorial Day holiday. All the rain, and even my work schedule, can’t stop the fun when family is around.


Speaking of fun, it’s Waffleflower Crafts week on the Therm O Web blog. I am a huge fan of the whimsical art of Big Bear & Bird, and made several cards to share mixing those adorable bear and bird stamps with Therm O Web’s fabulous line-up of cardstock, ink, dies, and adhesives. Today I wanted to share the first of them here with you.


I really am a sucker for cute critters, and I couldn’t resist the adorable chef images from Waffleflower’s Therefore I Am combo set. That little bird in his chef hat kills me. He just whipped up a batch of chocolate chip cookies for his friend, Bear.


This card features simple Copic coloring along with bright and happy patterned paper from Simple Stories’ Summer Days collection. And of course cardstock, ink, and dies from Therm O Web’s Gina K Designs line.


I’ve got a second Big Bear & Bird card to share on the Therm O Web blog, along with details and instructions for creating these cards, if you’d like to learn more. And don’t forget to enter our prize drawing for a $25 gift certificate while you are there!


Thanks so much for stopping by! And huge thanks to all the servicemen and women, to their families, and to all who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect and serve this great country of ours!
