4 You Treat Holder

Happy Sunday everyone. Hope you are having a great day. It's another HOT one here in SW MO. I hope we get a little rain to cool us off, but then have to have the humitidy..not sure if the rain is worth it. So if you are planning outside activites, drink lots of water and stay cool.

Last night, my awesome friend Vicki was out to my place, and we made a purse for 3x3 cards and we just loved them. We were making another one, and boy did we mess up from Wendy's tutorial , but ended up with out having handles. So Vicki said, these would be great with little candies in them instead of 3x3 cards. I also thought of gift cards or even Trident Gum would fit.
So the possiblies to fill these are just endless. You can find Wendy's tutorial on her blog

So today's share is one that I made this afternoon while watching the Michigan NASCAR race.
Hope you like it, cause I love it. I can see more of these in my future for craft fairs etc.

Stamp Sets~~Itty Bitty Backgrounds and Tiny Tags
Cardstock~~Black and White
Ink~~Black Stazon
Misc~~Flower Folds Bigz Die, Tiny Tag Punch, Textured Embossing Folder, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Pop Dots DMC string and some Black 1/2 Pearl Stickers

That's it for today....have a great Sunday evening. THANKS so much for stoppin by.
Let's all remember the people in the AR Floods this past week, that were swept away and their familes, in our prayers.

Happy Stampin,

Because I Care

Afternoon everyone! Happy more day til the weekend. Hope you have some great plans for the weekend. Me? well, I'm gonna play with new goodies IF I can stop drooling over my new catty. Isn't it the most awesome catty we've had for awhile? I think so!!! I just can't stop lookin at it and making a list, then making another list, and my lists are making lists now, LOL. Can't wait for July 1 to get here, so I can mark off some of my lists.
The New Colors to the Color Collections are so rich and lusious. The In Colors are just so pretty. Not sure which ones I like the best, but the New Colors are winning out I think. I know, I didn't use any new colors for this card...why? because I forgot I have them!! I will make something this weekend using the new colors.
Anyhow, todays card share was made with one of the Hostess Level 1 sets that SU so graciously sent to demos free when they got a "bundle" of the new collections. SU made a few mistakes and this was their way of saying "we're sorry". It's a really nice hostess set.
Details...4.25x5.50 card
Stamp Set~~Because I Care
Cardstock~~White and Regal Rose
Ink~~Old Olive and Regal Rose Markers
Misc~~Score Board, Pop Dots and 1/2 Pearl Stickers
That's it for today. THANKS so much for stoppin by.
Happy Stampin!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Just one more day....I get my SU preorder goodies, and I can't wait...I'm just giddy with excitment to get that new catty. Hope you are having a great day. Looks like we have Tornado Watches tonight. AHHH let'er blow is my theory. I'm sure it's probably nothing, just the temps are up there and it's just probably a precautionary measure more than anything.

Today, I'm sharing another set of cards (4.25x5.50, 4x4, and 3.x3) that I made using the Summer Splendor DSP on my MDS. I just can't get enough of these cards, so easy to do and so nice to mail out...flat! no extra postage.

Anyways, for these I used, Dusty Durango for the card bases and Crushed Curry to matt the printed DSP on Whisper White. Dusty Durango was used to stamp the sentiments from "On Your Birthday". A matt of Crushed Curry and Whisper White was also used on the inside of the cards.

That's it for today. THANKS so much for stoppin by. Have a great Tuesday evening.

Until tomorrow...........

Happy Stampin,

Good evening ladies and gents (if there are any). Hope you had a great Monday. We had rain here in the SW MO area. Nice welcome relief from the 90+ temps we have been having. It's not to humid, which is a good thing. I'm sure we'll get the "humid" thing soon enough.

Tonight, I'm sharing 3 cards (4.25x5.50, 4x4 and 3x3) that I made using the MDS download of Summer Slendor. If you don't have the MDS (My Digital Studio) run, don't walk to your nearest demostrator and get your copy ASAP, then purchase the Summer Slendor DSP $4.95 (not in the new catty) and make some awesome cards. I'm sure your demostrator will assit you with making these beauties. I'll be posting more through out this week.

I printed the desired "DSP" on Whisper White Cardstock. Layered all of them on Soft Suede and mounted onto Kraft aka: Crumb Cake (after July 1). Then I used Soft Suede Cl Ink and stamped using the Thank You Kindly stamp set. I finished off the inside with a layer of Whisper White and Soft Suede. And you are done.

That's it for tonight, until tomorrow.....THANKS so much for stoppin by. Have a great evening.

Happy Stampin!
