Howdy, Everyone!

Last Blog Hop of the week goes to…Global Stamping Friends! Amazing demonstrators from around the world join in this hop to showcase their creative side every 1st Friday of the month!

This month we are showcasing the new 2020-2022 In Colors! They are marvelous and bright! I have been using them quite a bit! Here are 2 cards we made for my Hostess Club last week! Since my stamps were still in a tub at the time we used the sentiments from the Covid19 Giveback download. Those are not going out of style anytime soon! Yippee!

Here are my 2 cards…I even caught the sun shining in my Creation Studio, so the colors don’t get anymore real than that! 🙂

1593788975840.jpg

I did 2 new techniques for these cards. The one on the right is the new craze called Scrappy Strips…that was fun and simple! Easier than I thought it was going to be! And the one on the left is stamping with rubber bands wrapped around a D block! That was cool! I have a tutorial available for anyone who leaves a comment or emails me at junebugcreations29@gmail.com and asks for it! 🙂

Now it is time to hop on over to Tricia Butts blog and see what she created for this In Color hop!

ICS Blog Hop – Let The Sale-A-Bration Begin

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy Everyone!

Here’s to you all having a very Healthy and Joyous 2020!

I am excited to start off the new decade with a Blog Hop with the lovely ladies of the Inspire, Create, and Share Blog Hop group! We hop together on the first Wednesday of the month. This month we are showcasing items from the new Sale-A-Bration flyer that will go active on January 3rd…2 more days and then you can get your hot little hands on these fun items! If you need the new SAB flyer and Mini Catalog, please let your demonstrator know, or leave me a comment and I will send one to you! Let’s get started!

I chose to showcase the Sending You Thoughts stamp set. It is so versatile because it is a stamp set full of sentiments! I paired it with the Painted Poppies Bundle from the new mini catalog, which also goes live on January 3rd.

Here is my card…

1577859354323.jpg

And here is the inside…

1577859473000.jpg

The supplies are listed below. I kept it simple, yet fun! It’s a lot more white than I tend to use, but I really like how the colors pop! I’m thinking this will become one of the cards in my upcoming Birthday Card Buffet event. We shall see…and you’ll see when the time comes, so stay tuned!

And now, on to Candy Ford who is showcasing ‘Happy Birthday to You’…just click the Next button below and you will hop along…Enjoy!

Paper Pumpkin + SU! = Great Alternate

Oh My Goodness! I was planning a few posts of my Christmas card classes and getting next month’s Blog Hops set up when I found a drafted post…can you believe it? Well, you probably can! 🙂 This is from October and I didn’t even realize that I didn’t finish it and post it! Shame on me…not the first time, as you know, so probably not the last time either! LOL

Although it isn’t Christmas themed, as most things are right now…I’m letting you have it anyway because I love anything Paper Pumpkin…Enjoy! And Have a Very Merry Christmas!!, just in case I don’t get to post before then! 😉

Howdy!

Are you an Out-of-the Box kind of crafter? Do you like mixing and matching your crafting supplies? I’m learning to! And I did just that with this card! I mixed up 2 Paper Pumpkin kits, plus the Sailing Home Bundle items…let’s check out what I did! A card on page 144 of the Annual Catalog inspired me. Can you figure out which one? Comment below if you know!

First, I took the sand dollar, starfish, and the vellum coral (which I inked with Terracotta Tile) from the June PP kit called A Little Smile. Then I used the shell stamp, sentiment, label, sequins, and linen thread from the July PP kit called On My Mind. To those items I added the anchor stamp and and it’s matching die using Smokey Slate cardstock, as well as the sea weed from the Sailing Home Bundle in Mint Macaron and Old Olive. I also included the a sprig punch element in Pear Pizzazz. I have never mixed so many sets in my life! LOL

I used the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set and the stitched label die that comes in the bundle and created that on Whisper White cardstock. I also ran the Pretty Peacock cardstock through the Big Shot in the High Seas 3D embossing folder. I used linen thread for the anchor, but would have used the braided linen trim if I had it! I think it would have been a better look. Then I put it all together and viola!

What do you think? I think I am in love! A great card for anyone, yet if you struggle with masculine cards, this one is perfect!

ICS – Beautiful Bundles

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy!

It’s time for the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! It’s always fun to see what these talented ladies are up to! This month we are showcasing the new Bundles in the Annual Catalog. I really like how Stampin’ Up! has organized them and put them up front to find right away! Have you seen that?! Just love it!

Let’s get started! I chose the Daisy Lane Bundle to showcase this month. I paired it with a few other parts of different stamp sets since I mainly used the daisy stamps and the daisy punches to create this Birthday Pop Up box card for a class that a customer requested for her and a couple friends. She neglected to tell me they were newbies and had never crafted, not even made a card before. Wowza! What a project to introduce them to card making! 😮

Here is what they made…

1565214603471.jpg

and here are the sides…

I love how fresh and bright it turned out! This is my 3rd pop-up box card and I think there will be many more!

The supplies are listed below and if you would like a PDF of the instructions, please comment below and I will get it to you! Remember to check out the supplies that I used below!

Now you can hop on over to Terri Takashige and see what wonderful Bundle she chose to showcase today! Have fun hopping!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Poppin’ Birthday

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy!

Well, it’s Spring Break for us here in Whitefish, Montana and I am loving not having to go to school! Haven’t gotten to sleep in, yet the days are more relaxing and it makes me so very ready for summer vacation! Bring it on! Ready to craft my heart out!

Today is our monthly blog hop for Paper Pumpkin Possibilities! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this 1 stop box of fun creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this March Paper Pumpkin kit: Poppin’ Birthday.

Here are the cards that the instructions were for:

I normally make each of the instructed cards and then make alternates. Today I just dove right in, so this is a photo from Paper Pumpkin of what the cards look like. I will make one of each…later. So many ideas running through my head and all over the internet!

The card I made for today actually came to me in a dream last night! Yes, crazy, right?!? I was thinking about what I would make today and I fell asleep and when I woke up I remembered making a card in my dream…so I made it for real!

Here is it!

1553642561951.jpg

 

It’s a tad dark because I had to lay it back a little so that the sequins wouldn’t all fall to the bottom. Yep, it’s a shaker card! Learned a few things…first, make sure you put the plastic sheet on the back of your cake BEFORE you put down the double sided foam tape! 🙂 Yeah, I didn’t…ugh! That wasn’t fun to pull back up. 

My goal is to always make Paper Pumpkin Alternates using as much from the kit as I can. I don’t want you to need to buy extra product if you are not in a financial position for it. Been there, done that. The only materials or items I used that were not in the kit this month were:

Oh, before I sign off and have you hop on over to Anastasia’s project, here is the inside of the card…just as dressy and fun! Picture a tad dark…something is up with my phone or my lighting today. I’ll figure it out before the next post!

Until April 10th…don’t miss out!

Happy Tails are Meant to Be!

Howdy!

How are you all today?! I am on my first day of Spring Break and happy for it! What better way to start it than telling you about this cute card I came up with to enter into the Sketch Saturday Challenge? I have fun with sketches and this one turned out cute!

Here is the sketch:

I figured I would change it up a bit and instead of going with circles, I went with a heart and puppy dog! Here is mine:

1553208383820.jpg

And, since I am into different ways of folding cards lately…I went with a new fun one that I learned…it’s a double door kind of fold. First card I made I had the heart straight up, half on one side, half on the other. Then at my card class this week, Crystal said she was going wonky and I really liked that idea…so I went with a wonky heart too! I like this one better!

Materials used for this card are:

Here are 2 pictures of how it looks when you open it:

I left the inside blank so that I can write whatever to the person who gets the card. I may choose to put Very Vanilla cardstock inside to make writing easier because the inside is textured as well. Oh…when you use the paw and bone to stamp all over the front…stamp before you emboss…it’s easier! Just saying because I forgot to do it that way. 😉

Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Last “Geared Up for 50” card

Howdy!

Finally, here is the last 50th birthday card I made from the Geared Up Garage Bundle and the Classic Garage DSP! Such a fun set! I really love this set and plan on making more cards and scrapbook pages with this set! Ok, not for awhile. I need to play with some of the other stuff I have gotten from the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure!! Speaking of which, can you believe we are in our last month of Sale-A-Bration?! Oh, no! If you haven’t gotten all the things you want, you better get on it! Click here to place your order and get FREE stuff while you can. It all ends March 31st! Occasion catalog goes until June 3rd, so you have a bit of time for that…although it makes sense to order what you want from the Occasions Catalog and get the FREE items from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. And, have you seen all the Sale-A-Bration Coordination items? So fun! You can see one of them here. Alas, they are all selling quickly and some are sold out. So, again, DON’T WAIT!! SHOP NOW! And please remember to use the March Hostess Code (4X6BB23E) if you are under $150.

On to the card!

And here is what it looks like opened…

Pretty cool, don’t you think? I was pleased with all three. The only thing I think I would do different would be to distress the balloons to give them depth. If you missed the Pop Up Box for my Hubster, you can see that here. And the spin fold card you can see here.

The colors I used were all the same: Crushed Curry, Real Red, and Basic Gray. For this car, I changed it up a bit and used the framelit to cut out one of the sports cars from the DSP. For my hubby I had embossed it in white and then used the framelit. This one has more of a chalkboard feel to it. The Happy was cut from the Happy Birthday thinlit. The Birthday was too big for the card. I am sure I will use it elsewhere. I don’t like to waste anything, so I keep all that kind of stuff. Just need to get it more organized so I can find it when I am looking for it! 

That is all I have for you today. Tomorrow I get to go scrapbook with some ladies whose group I just got invited to! I am beyond excited and happy to find a crafty group in my new town! It’s taken me 2 years, but I am rolling now meeting crafty folks and making new crafty friends! WooHoo! I’ll take pictures of my pages and share them here next week! Enjoy your weekend! I know I will!
Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Blessings, June

ICS Blog Hop One Last Sale-A-Bration

Howdy!

It’s the first Wednesday of the month…you know what that means! We are back with another ICS Blog Hop! I love these monthly hops because it keeps me creating and I enjoy seeing what others have created! This month we are celebrating the last of the Sale-A-Bration time! Last month to get your FREE products with an order of $50 or more! I am going to showcase another card made from my favorite Stamp and Framelit Bundle…yep, Geared Up Garage it is! If you missed the first 2, you can check them out here and here.

My husband turned 50 and one of his friends did in November, and another turns 50 this week. They are getting together this weekend and my hubster is taking the cards to them. They are all long time friends, so I made special cards for each of them…all different, yet all with the same set since they are all in to cars in one way or another!

Here is the card for Shawn, who turned 50 in November.

And, yes, it is another cool kinetic folding card that I learned from Jan B! She rocks! I can’t remember what she called this, but the circle in the middle swings when you open and close the card. Stampin’ Up! used to have a framelit that created these cards (which I still own) but it was a smaller circle. I made bunches of cards with it back when I lived in Tucson, before I started this blog! Now I know how to make it by hand and can use any shape in the middle! This is going to be fun! I plan on making a lot more of all these fun folding cards that I have been posting lately! I need to get proficient at them for teaching in my classes! And, yes, of course, I will share them with all of you!

Here are some of the other sides of the card, so you can see it from all angles. Plus the envelope I made for his card too!

Besides the Classic Garage DSP, Geared Up Garage stamp set and Garage Gears thinlit bundle, I also used Basic Gray cardstock, the Happy Birthday from Happy Birthday Gorgeous, and the Balloon Bouquet Punch. Oh, and in my other posts, I forgot to mention the retired number dies that I used to cut out the 50. Not sure why they got rid of those, I like to use them for important birthdays and anniversaries! 

That is all I have for you today…be on the look out for that last card using the Geared Up Garage. Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Blessings, June

If you have been thinking about signing up for the awesome Paper Pumpkin monthly kit, NOW is the time! Next month is Paper Pumpkin’s Birthday and they always do something extra special for their birthday! This year it is a second stamp set in each kit! I love that it’s a surprise as to what theme I get in my box each month, and yet it is nice to have little hints like they did last month. This time they are telling us this to get us excited:

  • The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
  • Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade
  • This kit has an element that is sure to “pop”! 
  • The FREE stamp set is even bigger and better than your typical Paper Pumpkin stamp set and can be used on a variety of crafting projects.

I’m thinking the “pop” may mean a pop up card. What do you think? I’m excited, are you?!?!

Happy 50th Birthday, Hubster!

Howdy!

Last month was my Hubster’s 50th birthday so I wanted to make a very special card for him. I had seen the cards that look like stuff popping out of the box, so I researched and found a tutorial…and now I want to show it off.

It’s called a Pop-Up Box Card and here it is…

Geared Up Garage Pop-up Box Card

I used the Geared Up Garage Bundle and Classic Garage 6×6 DSP to make it along with a 12×12 sheet of Basic Gray cardstock.

Geared Up Garage Cling BundleClassic Garage 6 X 6 (15.2 X 15.2 Cm) Designer Series Paper

 

This is definitely my favorite stamp set and framelit bundle in the Occasions catalog! This card was a challenge, mainly because I could only find 1 (very confusing!) tutorial video that used inches instead of cm. My scoring board doesn’t have centimeters, so I had no choice but to use the video. It took me so long because I had to stop and start it repeatedly. My first tutorial, when I get my video set up in place, will be this kind of card! I will make it simple and easy for you!

Here are some other pictures of the process:

After making the card, I had to make a special envelope to go with it! I found some retired 12×12 envelope paper and made my large envelope using the Envelope Punch Board. I love this thing! I make all my envelopes with it! Then I decorated the outside with some stamps from this set and a retired alphabet that I use mostly in my scrapbooking because of it’s size.

Besides the DSP and Basic Gray cardstock, I added some Real Red cardstock for the 50 and I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch for the balloons I cut out of the DSP. I also used white embossing powder on the black cardstock sports car. Hubster really liked how that turned out when I had made it for my first Geared Up Garage car (you can see it here), but then didn’t use it knowing I would want to use it on his card.

That’s all I have for now. I think I will call it good and move on to posting the other cards I made using this wonderful bundle! Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!
