Happy Monday, y’all! Sorry to start a post with an oxymoron!
The only trouble with a wonderful vegetable-mimicking weekend is that it ends. Inevitably with an alarm going off at 4:30am! 🙁 But – it was truly a great 2 days….sleep….watch tv (I binge watched Nashville – can you even believe they’re cancelling that?!? – and The Catch)….make card….repeat!
I hope that y’all had a great weekend and did something either wildly fun or hugely relaxing – anything that will hold you thru to the next 48 hours not-at-work!
My card for today is quick and easy – as befits a Monday morning. I used some of the soon-to-be-released Sweet & Sassy Framelits, the Layering Love stamp set – and some Playful Palette DSP and Designer Washi Tape. Take a look-see:
My design inspiration came from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #236:
I took an inordinately long time on this one to decide which of the new 2016-2018 In Colors to use – and which one of the many designs in the Playful Palette DSP stack. And then, I happened to glance over at the Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape….and I saw the black tape with the speckles. Boom!
Once that momentous decision was made, it went together fast. I ran a strip of that Washi Tape down the left side of a Very Vanilla card stock panel, and then SNAILd it to a mat of Peekaboo Peach. Then I cut a piece of the Playful Palette DSP to match my Washi Tape, SNAILd that to its own Peekaboo Peach mat, and then to the card front.
I took a little liberty with the sketch and ran a length of Emerald Envy 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.
The sentiment is from Layering Love, stamped in Emerald Envy ink on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and cut with a Sweet & Sassy Framelit die. I cut the next largest heart in Peekaboo Peach and adhered them together with SNAIL. Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
On the inside, I SNAILd a Very Vanilla panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and then ran two strips of the Playful Palette Washi Tape around the layered panel. Over the seam, I secured a length of the Emerald Envy 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon, using a little Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to hold it in place and then some scotch tape in the back to permanently hold it on. Then I SNAILd it into my Basic Black card base.
I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
The Medium Very Vanilla Envelope got a strip of the Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape on the front…
…and a Playful Palette DSP liner, cut with my Envelope Liner Framelit (which is retiring in like…2 weeks! Do. Not. Miss. Out)
Et Voila! A quick and easy blank-on-the-inside card that you could use for all sorts of occasions!

- Each month, one person will be the “host” of that month’s workshop – I’ll put all your names in a hat (okay – maybe a box) and draw the names out at the beginning of the club period – that way everyone will know which month will be “theirs”!
- I’ll mail the host code to everyone on the first of each month and then everyone just applies that host code to their order by the 20th. Then the host and I will figure her order together at the end of the month! Each month the host will have earned at least $15 in Host/Stampin’ Reward dollars!
- During your participation in the Online Club, I’ll be giving you DOUBLE Peppermint reward points! So – your $25 order will get you TWO peppermints each month, versus the normal one.
- And – at the end of the 6 months – I’ll give each participant the stamp set of their choice (with a value up to $20)
- And you’ll get first dibs on the next club sign up!
- You’ll receive Free Catalogs from me during your Host Club term and free shipping on your host month! That’s going to amount to two Annual Catalogs (this one coming up and the 2017-2018 AC), the Holiday Mini and the Occasions Catalog!
