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!

Shaking up some Poppies!

Hello Everyone!

My goodness, 2 posts in one day! Yippee! I’m rolling! LOL I’m gearing up for a move, so I am attempting to get some things in place before that happens…one of which is some inspiration to tie you over through my move at the end of the month! Same town, different house.

I love shaker cards…not super easy to make, but oh so worth it! And I really love this one! 

I am using my card for this fun Challenge from Try Stampin’ – Or Not – On Tuesday! Well, I did stamp on a Tuesday! And I went with both the shaker card and the sketch! I just turned things around a bit.

Here is my card…

1588778770029.jpg

Of course, the insides all fell down behind the poppie, but you can see all the sequins inside. I really love this card and can’t figure out who to send it to! I used the Peaceful Poppies DSP for the backdrop and layered it on a piece of Old Olive cardstock. Then I used the stitched rectangles to make the frame from Flirty Flamingo cardstock. The poppie and leaves are cut using the Peaceful Moments Dies. I put a little bit of Wink of Stella on the black stamin in the middle of the flower. The sequins comes form the Mini catalog and is part of the Peaceful Poppies Suite. Hands down one of my favorite ever…and that is saying a lot because I am not usually into flowers much for my cards or scrapbooking. I used Metallic Pearls for the 3 dots at the top. And of course, to pop it up I used the foam adhesive strips…and make sure there are no holes or your sequins will come out…who me? Speak from experience? Um, yeah, ok…I am. hahaha! 🙂

That’s it for today! Let me see your shaker cards!

Thougthful Blooms, Under My Umbrella!

Howdy!

Wow, I just realized that it has been too long since I have posted! Jeepers! No excuses to offer…just caught up in my teaching life and time got away from me. Now that I have more time and no teaching outside the house..I’m back!

For Hostess Club this month I created some simple cards with the Small Blooms Punch (a Sale-A-Bration item to earn) and Under My Umbrella stamp set. I also used the Pleased as Punch DSP! Fun cards. I have 1 to share with you now.

UNDER MY UMBRELLA BUNDLE (ENGLISH) PLEASED AS PUNCH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER SMALL BLOOM PUNCH

I saw this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! and immediately thought of umbrellas…

but that didn’t pan out the way I thought it would and then this one came to mind. I love how it turned out!

1585183142789.jpg

The flowers and the umbrella were punched from the Pleased as Punch DSP! Easy-peasy! The sentiment is from the Under My Umbrella stamp set. I hooked the umbrella under a flower petal and love how it turned out so cute! During these crazy, surreal times, I’ll be sending these out and many others. Everyone needs to feel loved and safe right now! Card makers can do their part in helping!

So, that is all I have for now. More to come! Keep crafting and breathing! This too shall pass…and I believe we will all come out on the other side better for it!

ICS Blog Hop Color Challenge

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy, Everyone!

It’s that time of the month when the ICS Blog Hop happens! WooHoo! I love hopping with these ladies!!

Yes, it has been awhile since I posted anything again. Life has a way of doing that sometimes. I had lots of visitors during August and then also went to see my sister in Septemeber, who is slowly losing her battle with cancer. I’ll be leaving again next week for a long weekend. Sadly, it will be the last time I see her. Please bare with me and have patience if my posts are scattered for while. I’ll get myself on track again soon!

Ok, enough sad stuff…it is time for the monthly Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop and I am ready this month! It’s a color challenge and for me it was a time to get Happy for Halloween!

Here are the colors we needed to use:

70496440_10220437165746143_5864255488765460480_n

Aren’t those some fun colors?! They totally screamed HALLOWEEN at me, so I went for it!

My Silver Metallic ink is on back order (yes, a necessary evil at times) and so I made do with all the other colors and tossed some Silver Metallic thread on there instead!

I used the new Harvest Hellos stamp set and matching punch for the pumpkins and sentiment. I also used a new technique…well, new to me…bubble wrap stamping. How cool is that?! I rolled a bit of bubble wrap onto my ink pad and then rolled it onto the card stock! Did I take a picture, you ask? Um, nope. 😦 But I promise to next time, for sure! I plan on using this easy technique a few more times! Keep an eye out for it!

Another new thing I did was to use the Tailored Tag punch, which I affectionately call the Hampton Inn punch because it is shaped the same as their sign. 🙂 Kinda funny! I drive by there daily and it makes me want to go home and use this punch! So, today I did! I stuck a strip of cardstock across the middle of it and punched out what I actually needed since the punched image would have been way too big. Cool, eh? 2 new techniques in 1 post! I amaze myself. 😉

So, here is my card. What do you think? Please do comment below!

Supplies are listed below as well as other current Stampin’ Up! specials and information you need to know! For now, you can hop on over to Lisa Ann Bernard and see what these colors inspired her to create!

Belated Thanks!

Howdy!

Have you ever gotten sidetracked and forgotten to send Thank Yous to people you know you really should have? Yes, me too! Even as a card maker, I sometimes don’t get the cards out that I should! Well, today I got super motivated to make the Thank You cards for the baseball sponsors…yeah, I know…baseball regular season ended a month ago! Shame on me! I have had the sponsor team pictures sitting in my Creation Studio for awhile, then I bought the frames, then just needed to make the cards…and then got sidetracked with life.

I am taking responsibility for my tardiness, though…and made my first Belated Thank You cards! I used the team colors for each card and a simple sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!

This one was great for using some of my old baseball stamps…yeah, sorry, these stamps are long since retired…they are from before clear and photopolymer stamps were evenaround and are still on wood! They are Stampin’ Up! though!

Here are my cards…

1563472494452.jpg

I used Aqua Painters to make the swishy water color bottoms of the cards. I like the subtleness of it! I used the two main colors of the teams for the thanks and the swish. Gray is obviously a common color theme for our teams. They all wear gray pants. I like the colorful words vs the words being in gray and the swish being in color.

I know…lots of white for this girl! And no distressing the edges…Wait! What? Yes, no distressing! I like them! What do you think? Feel free to leave me a comment about them! I love comments!

Below I will list the supplies and how I used them. That’s it for today! Off to the mountains for some camping and fishing! WooHoo! See you next week!

Catch the Bug Photo Inspiration

Howdy!

Doing something a little different today…I am using a digi stamp from Catch the Bug Challenge Blog! It’s a darling stamp and I was in the mood for a change of pace. I’m not much of a colorer, so it was time to challenge myself.

The challenge is from a photo…I used some of the colors, something flying, and flowers! Here’s the photo…

I had gotten a digi stamp from them quite awhile ago, and it made me think of summer, since that is when we can plant flowers up here in Montana. Heck, with all the rain and cool weather, I have not even done a potting of flowers yet!

Here’s the cool digi stamp

flowerpots

Isn’t it so fun? I printed it on Whisper White cardstock and used my Stampin’ Blends and some Stampin’ Write Markers to color it. I happened to have all the perfect colors out of the few that I own! This was meant to be! I really like how the coloring turned out! What do you think?

1562282599335.jpg

That is all I have for you tonight! Stay tuned…tomorrow is another fun hop! See you there!

ICS Blog Hop – Punch Me Out

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy!

It’s that time again…our monthly Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! I love seeing what these talented ladies create! This month we are showcasing Punches. There are so many punches in the catalog, my goodness it makes it hard to choose a favorite…so maybe a mix of a couple are the way to go? I guess we will see as we hop through…have fun seeing some inspiring creations!

I did end up using 3 punches…too hard to choose just one! I used the Scalloped Tag Topper, Banner Triple, and the Cat. The Stamp set is Nine Lives. I made this card with a particular “Crazy Cat Lady” friend of mine in mind…at least that is what my son called her when he was little since she (and her husband) had 7 cats at the time. He is a cat lover as well, so they bonded quickly.

 

For some reason the color is off in my picture, although it isn’t as blue as the first one I took. And the sentiment looks blurry. It’s actually stamped so that it had a shadow, but the picture doesn’t do it justice. My colors are Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. Plus, I used vellum for the tag.

I think the inside of the card turned out super cute! Since it says “…nine lives” I had to have nine cats, right?

Balloons for You!

Howdy!

My Boyz (husband and son) are playing on the computers with long distance friends, so I am playing in my Creation Studio! Fun kind of evening for us! I sorta miss them though…we used to do this all in the same room until we changed the Guest Room into the Computer Cave so that I had a whole room for classes. I love the room to myself most of the time and especially for holding classes…but then on evenings like this, I miss hearing their funny conversations and laughter. I could probably have the door open and hear them, but since I am listening to KLove, I figured I would leave it closed. It’s a Catch-22. 

I found some fun Challenges to get my creative juices flowing…

For my colors I found a fun combo here:

And for my theme, I went to: 

Probably coulda found a sketch and made it a triple…but, that might be going too far. LOL

I’m satisfied with the card I came up with. I had a particular person in mind for this one. I missed sending him a birthday card and a Father’s Day card…ugh, pathetic, I know! So, this one will be in tomorrow’s mail to my One and Only, Best Daddy! (Mom, if you are reading this, don’t tell him!)

The supplies I used on this card will be listed at the end of the post. Here is the card 

1561695675873.jpg

And here is the inside…think he will forgive me?

That’s it for tonight! Have some Blog Hops coming up next week, so time to switch gears and get focused on them…see you again soon!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop A Little Smile

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy!

It is that time again…Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop…where we get to show you the alternates we made from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit! And this month’s kit is truly Ah-mazing!

It is called A Little Smile for a reason…we can hand out the sweetest cards for any occasion…with tips at a restaurant, when you see a sales person stressed out, a friend needing a pick me up…whenever it seems like the right time to brighten someone else’s day! Trust me, it brings a smile to your face as well!

1561487125191.jpg

AND, it came with this little case to carry the cards in so that they don’t get destroyed in your purse!

1561487471516.jpg

So, that is what came in the kit, I used the stamps, ink, and embellishments to decorate one of Stampin’ Up!’s mini pizza boxes. I hadn’t used any of them yet and wanted to make something 3D for a change of pace. With it being summer, the beachy theme was perfect for a little treat box! I added some other ink colors to this as well…it needed a pop of color for those coral and starfish stamps! 🙂

1561486163040.jpg

The sparkly sand dollar is my favorite embellishment in this kit! There are also some sparkly starfish that are pretty, but if they were in a more realistic color, then they would have also been a favorite. Still using them, of course, just loving the sand dollars the most!

I also decorated the sides of the box because, well, why not?! Love the Calypso Coral for the coral! WOW, such a perfect pop of color! I also used the Sahara Sand for the sand dollars, but stamped them off before putting them on the box! That helped make them lighter and closer to realistic. Don’t ask me why I was hung up on realistic with this kit…it’s just one of my idiosyncrasies, I guess. 😛

1561486241663.jpg

I have to say, I am pretty pleased with the outcome and may have to make a few more of these boxes. Then I need to bake and put treats in them…hahaha, just kidding, chocolate will be way easier since baking is not a favorite past time of mine…cooking, yes, baking, not really. I’ll let my son do the baking. 😉

Below are the supplies I used and the link to my online store. Plus info on next month’s Paper Pumpkin kit…another one you Don’t want to miss!!

Next up is Darla Roberts, my friend and SU leader! Enjoy her creation and the rest of the hop!

Around the Corner w/ Tropical Chic

Howdy, Everyone!

Wow! It’s summer vacation! Yay! However, this is not my usual kind of summer because I got a new teaching job! I started teaching English to Chinese children online. It is lots of fun! I think of it as being a host of my own children’s show! It is really boosting the creative side of my brain! Which means you’ll probably be seeing more posts on here…not a bad thing, right?! That’s the best kind of summer!

I whipped this card up faster than I think I have ever done! Creative juices have been flowing! Love these fun bright colors!

Fusion was the inspiration for the colors…

And here is my card…I did a combination of the colors from the VW and the sketch.

I started with a card base in Daffodil Delight. Created a Whisper White rectangle with the Stitched dies. The stamp set is Tropical Chic with the matching dies for my main focal images. The flowers are in Mango Melody and Melon Mambo while the leaves are in Bermuda Bay.

Then I used the ‘Hello There’ sentiment from the Around the Corner stamp set. I think this might be the first time using both of these sets. Glad they carried over into the new Annual catalog!

I’m truly loving the feeling these bright summer colors give me!! We’re still waiting on summer weather here in Montana! Lots of rain and cool days. Definitely not like in Arizona, where it’s triple digits! Don’t really miss that, just would like some days warmer than 50-60s! 😁

That’s all for today…I’ll be back sooner than usual! I have some graduation cards to share!

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!
