I’m back! I’ll share a post with some pictures of the science-themed birthday party that we had this weekend for the twins. It was super crazy and a lot of fun, and I actually managed to take pictures this time! I had an issue with that for the Minecraft party we did in February. That was a major letdown once I realized it. Ugh.
Anyway, this week the Xyron DT is pairing up with Lawn Fawn and we each got to choose a stamp set. I am in love with the set I chose (called Summertime Charm) because I have a million ideas for cards and layouts that I can make with this one set. For today though, I have two cards and a tag to share with you. Check me out! 🙂
I wanted to use yellow on the card with this sentiment, and I love the way it looks with the blues in the papers and the embellishments. I didn’t even use the jar stamp on this card, but those sunny circle shapes and sentiment came together to make a pretty dang cute card. This is just one way you can use the heck out of a stamp set. Break up those pieces and use them in unexpected ways.
I used the Xyron 5″ Creative Station to attach the paper to the inside of the card and the front. I used the 3/8″ Adhesive dots to attach the flowers and circles to the card, and I used the High Tack Tape to attach the Maya Road trim. That sentiment is popped up with foam adhesive from the Teresa Collins adhesive kit.
This tag was a fun and very quick little project. These are so handy for any gift, and don’t have to be specific to a birthday or housewarming. You can just have them ready to use. I stamped everything on patterned paper for this one because I wanted things like the strawberries to have texture. It’s an easy way to get that look without having to emboss or anything.
Again, I used the Xyron 5″ Creative Station to attach patterned paper to the base, and then 3/8″ Adhesive dots for everything else.
How long has it been since I mentioned that I like making pink cards because I don’t get to scrapbook with a lot of pink with all these boys in the house? Not long? I’m sure. I do say it all the time 🙂
I love this plaid paper (it was a Valentine’s Day paper one year) and pulling the blue and grey into the design is so pretty. I used the sentiment stamp, the jar stamp and the heart outline stamp on this one. A bow and a few sequins finish it up. I love how girly this is and I know it’ll come in really handy.
You know I’m all about attaching paper to the base of my card with the Xyron 5″ Creative Station. I used the always lovely 3/8″ Adhesive dots to attach the jar and sequins. A little homemade foam adhesive on the sentiment, and some High Tack Tape for the ribbon and bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today! I hope that you like the projects I shared and that you’re checking out things at the Ain’t She Crafty blog and the Xyron Facebook page.
Have a great week!
