Wow, a lot of prep for this post! I started it last night by getting my photos ready, then uploading them today. In the meantime, taking care of kids and dishes and cleaning, it’s a wonder I ever get to blog! Anyway…..today I have a card for the Friday Mashup Challenge #216.
- Create a project with “a Summer Picnic theme”.
- Create a project with “Sunshine”.
- or Mash it Up! and create a project with ” a Summer Picnic and Sunshine theme”.
As always, I’m pretty literal, I have a Summer Picnic theme;)
If you click on the image, you can see all the little ants:) This is a pre colored digital image from Doodle Pantry, appropriately called, Picnic Ants🙂 It’s a set and has some sentiments, printed papers, and plain colored papers. My sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up! set called A Round Array (retired). The set has 8 round designed sentiments and you could get a punch to match. I promise I will be working with some new and current Stampin’ Up! products! In any case, I used Stampin’ Up! cardstock for the back and ink, both Real Red.
I love how this came out and I think one of the kids will really enjoy receiving it, maybe I’ll make more! 🙂
Now, I have two guests lined up, we’ll see how many cards I can fit in:) All of the following cards have already been sent to a hospital for the kids:) My card will also be sent to the kids through the Send A Smile 4 Kids outreach. First up, I have Angie Seyer, from SD.
These are so cute, wait until you see, all of Angie’s cards are cute! 🙂 I don’t have this set, but I know it’s from Stampin’ Up! called Fox & Friends (retired). Angie uses this set a number of times in the cards she sent in:) I will show more of these in the future:)
I do have this set, it’s also retired from Stampin’ Up!, called Toy Box. I love the set, but I was having trouble coming up with new layouts:( Angie has given me some great ideas with her cards! 🙂
This is also a Stampin’ Up! set that I don’t have! My hubby and I were both sure I had everything Stampin’ Up! 😉 lol I had to look this set up, it’s called Forest Friends (retired). I do have the sentiment stamp. Stampin’ Up! Perfect Punches (retired). So sad, I use this stamp set a lot!
I do have this Stampin’ Up! set, it’s called Papillon Potpourri, and it’s still available! 🙂 It has matching punches for the butterflies. There are six in the set, three big and 3 smaller, both with punches:) Of course, I have the stamps and the punches;) ! This is a great card with nice bright colors, someone is going to love this one! 🙂 I think I’ll enter this one in the SAS4Kids Challenge for this week, check it out! 🙂
Wow, that was fun, thanks Angie! 🙂 Now on to my next guest Karen Peterson:) Karen has sent in cards that are great, but I don’t know anything about them. Karen says they are all from Paper Wishes. I’ve never heard of them, but she has made some great cards! 🙂
These two are beautiful! I took a side photo so you could see how they stand on their own. I had a little glare problem, but you can see these are covered with lots of gold! Angie has done a beautiful job putting these cards together! 🙂 I have more cards from Angie that I will share in the Fall, she sent a number of Halloween cards, and some Christmas:)
Thanks for coming by today, I hope you enjoyed seeing the cards and have maybe gotten some ideas to use! 🙂 I hope to see you again soon! 🙂 I may change up my schedule some, it’s just too hard to post when Lawrence is running around! 😉 But I’ll be here! 🙂
