Technique Tuesday Animal House Giveaway

Hello everyone!!! Technique Tuesday has a fabulous giveaway going on on their blog right now! They are showcasing their super cute farm animal stamp sets.

Take a look at the stamp set I used:

Parker & Penny Pig Stamp Set

I used the Parker & Penny Stamp Set to create this clean and simple card. This set is full of funny sentiments with two cute pigs, Parker and Penny.

Here’s how I created this card:

Die cut the card base and circle using Papertrey Ink Noted Scalloped Square Die Collection.

Stamp the pig and sentiment using the MISTI.

Use Tombow’s Irojiten Colored Pencils, Rainforest to color the pig. I used Volume 1: P1 Orchid Pink and P2 Coral Pink.

Attach the circle die cut to the card base using 3M Foam Tape.

Do you want to participate in the giveaway? Here’s how:

  1. All you have to do is head on over to the Animal House Category on Technique Tuesday website and pick your favorite set.
  2. Then comment on this blog post for a chance to win that stamp set by June 29th.

Yes, super simple and easy!! They will announce the winner on their blog on July 1st, 2018.

Good Luck and I would love to hear which set is your favorite.

Ok, back to our regular post!!

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I decided to go with and actually icing die cut from a retired Top Dog Die die set.

  1. I dried emboss the front of the card stock with a retired Stampin Up! embossing folder.
  2. Then I used a retired Top Dog Die Cupcake die through my big shot.  I used a couple pieces of scrap paper for that.
  3. I adhered the cupcake to the card front using 3M foam tape.
  4. The I stamped Sweet Stamp Shop Birthday Sentiments on a piece of scrap paper, trimmed it and stapled it to the card front.

Nice and Easy.

How to Create an Envelope Wrap in 5 Minutes & Giveaway

Imagine getting a beautiful card in a beautiful envelope.  Yes, a beautiful envelope.

How many times do we send out cards or even receive cards in plain white or colored envelopes.  No, one really thinks about creating an envelope to match the card inside.  I’m guilty of that myself.  I spend a lot of time on creating my cards, I don’t even thing about the envelopes that they are going in.

That’s why I’m so excited that Papertrey Ink has a great Make It Monday #163 challenge going on this week called Envelope Wraps!  This challenge has challenged me to really think about the envelopes I’m using to send my cards out in.

Making my envelope wrap was entertaining.  I changed my mind seven times on how I wanted my envelope to look.  I finally decided on the style I liked.

Wouldn’t you want to receive an envelope that looked like this?  I would. I probably wouldn’t open it for fear of missing it up.

How about creating this envelope wrap for your next envelope. I created a PDF for you view on how to re-create or create your own envelope wrap.

Giveaway time!!!!  I have an extra Wrapped Mailing Label Die from Simon Says Stamp that I am giving away.  Just leave a comment below by 11:59pm on May 11, 2014.  The winner will be randomly chosen and sent an email.
