Mornin’, y’all! Hope your weekend was awesome!!
Yesterday was our quarterly in-person Amy’s Inkin’ Krew meeting – and I had two of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew members in attendance! How fun is that? Would you like to be one of my team members? Actually – you’ll have dual citizenship – you’ll be a Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew member and an Amy’s Inkin’ Krew member! Twice the fun! 🙂 And, while any time of the year is a great time to join, now – during Sale-A-Bration is the bestest of the greatest time – scroll on down and see why…
We had a great time and made a couple of cute projects. One of those uses the fun Custom Tee stamp set and matching T-shirt Builder Framelits. It’s not always easy to make a card for a guy – but this one would surely fill the bill. Take a look-see:
This one is quick and easy with the super cool dies in the framelits set. To start off, we stamped the striped tie image a bunch of times in Smoky Slate ink on a Smoky Slate panel. We totally just eyeballed it! 🙂 Then we matted the panel on Basic Gray.
The sentiment, from Custom Tee, is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on a piece of Basic Gray card stock, and SNAILd to the card front. Instead of a traditional mat for the sentiment, we used some of the Delightful Dijon tape in the Urban Underground Designer Washi Tape pack, wrapped around the panel.
The focal art started with a Stitched Shapes circle cut from a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. We stamped the large shirt image and the collar image in Delightful Dijon on a piece of Delightful Dijon card stock, and cut both pieces with their matching dies in the T-shirt Builder Framelits. The tie is stamped in Smoky Slate on Very Vanilla. We used a Blender Pen to color the stripes – I decided to alternate Smoky Slate and Delightful Dijon!
I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the shirt onto the Stitched Shapes circle. I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the top of the tie to the collar (I left the bottom sort of “flapping”. Finally, I popped the collar piece on with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with more Dimensionals.
I had a lot of popping going on on this card! 🙂
The last little bit to do was add a star from the Urban Underground Embellishments…
On the inside, I ran two pieces of Urban Underground Specialty Washi Tape across a Very Vanilla panel.
I SNAILd the panel into a Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done! Note – this is an interesting color palette…tone-on-tone matting, where you use the same color mat as your card base. This was new to me – and I like it! I suspect I’ll be making some more cards like this in the future! 🙂
My Very Vanilla Envelope (you knew I’d do something with that, yes??) got another Smoky Slate Custom Tee tie on the front…
Et Voila! Cute, isn’t it? No wait…handsome. Yea, that’s it! I love this little bundle – the sentiments are really fun and the possible fashion pieces you can make are endless! And, oh-by-the-way, the bundle also coordinates with the Designer Tee stamp set available as a free Sale-A-Bration item, which means you’ve got even more options. Hope you like!

Just a Reminder…
2015-2017 In Colors….Retirement is Inching Closer!
It’s time for you to start getting stocked up on your favorite color card stock, re-inkers, Designer Papers, Ribbons and Embellishments in these colors before they retire and/or sell-out! Re-inkers and card stock typically sell out fast as retirement nears! This is a really great time to do it, too, cuz you can still take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration benefits!
Here’s a link directly to the 2015 – 2017 In Color Collection – Happy Shopping!

How many pictures can I take of this goofy dog?
Give or take.
I appear to be relatively obsessed with his little face. Or his paws. Or his pantaloons. His lips – oh, his silly little lips that catch in his teeth when he’s not paying attention and doesn’t get everything lined up just right.
But, one of my faves is when he’s sleeping in the bathroom while I take a bath.
Cool on the tile. But a soft pillow for his head.
