Well – good Monday-day-after-Christmas to y’all! I sure hope you had a most wondrous Christmas Day with your family and friends. And ate a lot!
We sure did – the Prime Rib was excellent and we had too many sides to count. As usual!
Finn had himself a wonderful day. He got three new bones – one from him mom (me!), one from his grandma (my mom!) and one from his Auntie Jan!
That’s him with just two of his new chewie-up-things! He’s so happy! And on top of all that – there was company! Lots and lots of company! And they all petted him and loved on him and told him how very handsome he is! Which, of course, he is! So, as I type this, he’s sacked flat out – sawing logs. One. Tired. Little. Man!! 🙂
My card for today is a quick and easy one – that uses the 2017 Occasions stamp set called Cool Treats and a freebie stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog called Tasty Trucks. Take a look-see:
I started out by cutting a Crumb Cake card base the same size as one of our Note Cards and Envelopes – 3 1/2″ x 5″ – but I made it a top-folding card (versus the side-fold in the Note Cards). I made a background directly on the card base by stamping the pennant banner image from the Tasty Trucks set in Crumb Cake ink. I just stamped it all over.
My art and sentiment panel is a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. First I stamped the two sentiment words from Cool Treats. I stamped “Cool” first in Pool Party and then added “You’re” in Watermelon Wonder.
I made popsicles from Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder, using the images from Cool Treats. I first stamped the popsicle images – the Peekaboo Peach ones are stamped full-strength, and the Watermelon Wonder was stamped off once. I added the double-line image to the Peekaboo Peach treats – also in Peekaboo Peach. For the Watermelon Wonder, I used the little curved line image – stamping it off once before stamping the popsicle,
On the inside, I repeated the Crumb Cake pennants background and the two strips of Cool Treats Designer Washi. My Very Vanilla panel got a sentiment from the Tasty Trucks set in Peekaboo Peach. Then I added a line of tiny ice cream cones in Crumb Cake – this image is one of several tasty goodies in the Tasty Trucks set. I colored the ice creams with my Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach Stampin’ Write Markers.
My Crumb Cake envelope (from the Crumb Cake Note Cards and Envelopes), got more Tasty Trucks ice cream cones across the front…
Et Voila! Quick. Easy. Single layer so it’s easy to mail! Pretty much perfect – and all thanks to the fun images in the Cool Treats stamp set and the free and fun images in Tasty Trucks! Hope you like!
