Last week I shared a card with you and I promised a video for you.  What I love about this card is the fun halo effect on the circles.  It’s just a little change from ordinary polka dots.

A little Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine gives it that bit of texture.  Do you know what stamp set the polka dot is from?  Totally Trees!  Not a polka dot set but this stamp is so much more than a tree.

Oh, and you can’t forget the inside!  I love that the Thankful Thoughts stamp set has a sentiment for the outside AND the inside of the card!

Again, my apologies for the boo-boo yesterday.  Just didn’t have enough coffee in my system….. and lack of sleep.  I told you my BFF is in town and we’ve been staying up WAAYYYY too late the last few nights.  Last night we had to stay up and watch the last game in the World Series.  I don’t necessarily follow baseball but hey, it was so awesome to see the Cubs win after a 108 year dry spell.  🙂

Well, my sweet stampin’ peeps, I hope you enjoy the video today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge!

Who’s ready for some Christmas cards?  ME ME ME!!!  I thought it would be fu to branch out on the traditional Christmas colors and go with some vibrant and bright colors…. they draw my eye every time!

A few dimensionals on the back of the sentiment give the card a little more pop!  And I just love the Pop of Pink Designer Paper on this card!

So, Mr. Awesome isn’t so awesome today.  He’s got the “crud” that’s going around.  Boo.  Not sure if we will make it camping this weekend or not.  He’s going to play it by ear and see how he feels and we’ll decide what to do.  As I said, I still have a weekend full of performances but the benefit of camping is that the campground is right by the theater.  It’s nice to be so close all weekend long.

Hope you all have a lovely fall weekend!  I will see you on Monday for a Monday Make-It project!

Let me share what I created for this weekend’s sketch challenge…

This card was so much fun to make!  I used 2 different stamp sets and one of them is a Christmas stamp set, Be Jolly, by Golly.  I  L O V E it!  I love using a Christmas stamp set in a totally different way.

Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge for September 9, 2016 - check it out at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

This card is also a Flash Card and the retro feel of this card was so fitting for me.

A little glitter on the glass rim really made this card fun!  Love that little lemon on the side too.  It added just the right amount of bright yellow.

I don’t think Flourishing Phrases bundle ever leaves my desk these days.  I just love this stamp set and the matching framelits.

Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder are so beautiful together.  That touch of Pear Pizzazz just makes this simple card a big WOW card.  And the framelits did all the work!

Remember when you were a kid and you couldn’t sleep the night before a big event?  A trip to an amusement park maybe?  A family vacation?  Birthday party?  Well, that has been me ALL week.  I’m serious!  This afternoon, we are heading out on our first camping trip in our new camper!  I haven’t been this excited in I don’t know how long.  I literally have been waking up at 4am every night for the last 3 nights.  This is going to be amazing!

If you need me, I will be deep in the woods somewhere enjoying some quiet time with my family.  I’ve got a few stamping projects I want to take along as well.  This new camper has so much space I can take quite a bit of my crafting with me now.  YAY!

I am so glad it’s Friday.  I was talking to a customer on the phone on Tuesday and literally thought it was Friday.  Sounds like I was ready to move the week along.  Maybe because here in the USA, it’s a holiday weekend.  🙂

Before I head out of town, I have a GREAT sketch for you to play with over the long weekend.

Let me share a couple of fun ideas with you using the sketch for this weekend….

Couldn’t you just die of cuteness overload?  I LOVE this little popcorn box!  It’s SO retro and fun!

IMG_0483

The Popcorn Box Thinlits have (10) dies that come with it including (2) popcorn kernels.  I love the retro-style popcorn logo on the front too.  This little box is a new favorite.  Oh, and those stripes?  There’s a framelit for that too.  Can you see how they go from narrow to wide at the top?  Love that!

It’s a nice, long weekend so the Stewart’s are heading to the lake with our friends the Abbotts for some camping.  I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about going too!  We haven’t had a chance to go camping with the Abbotts in a couple of years so I am just tickled to be going.  They have a home on the lake and we’re taking our camper too.  It should be fun to hang out in the boat on the water for 4 glorious days.  My Paper Pumpkin kit came in and I haven’t had time to open it so I am going to find some time to craft too.  Yep, now THAT’S what I call a weekend!

Hope you all have a wonderful Independence Day (well, those of you who live in the USA anyway).  I will have a fun Monday Make-It for you so I will see you guys then!

Here’s what I created for this weekend’s challenge…..

My first card is so creative.  I’m quite proud of it.  I used the English Garden Designer Series Paper, burlap ribbon, and A Dozen Thoughts stamp set, all of which are retiring at the end of the month.

What I love about this card is that I used one piece of Designer Series Paper and got a feminine card…

…but when you flip the Designer Series Paper over, you get a masculine card!  Same card, same piece of Designer Series Paper but depending on the side you use will determine who you would send it to.  Pretty nifty, huh?

You guys know how much I love pink and black!  This is such a vibrant card!  This one uses another retiring stamp set, Another Thank You.  If you have been receiving my thank you cards with your orders, you probably recognize the stamp.  I use it all the time!  I love the font and that sweet little swirl in the “You”.

So what are your plans this weekend?  I’m going to play with some of the BRAND NEW goodies I got from the upcoming Stampin’ Up catalog.  One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to order some of the new catalog stamps and stampin’ toys early.  My order came when I was out of town and I am DYING to play!  Hey, if it’s gonna rain, might as well stamp!

Sunday, Christina, Ginny, and I are going to audition for another show.  A musical.  Oh heaven help me.  Singing isn’t my strong point but the girls say I’m good but they’re my girls, they have to say nice things like that.  lol  The show is “9 to 5: The Musical”.  I’m sure you know the movie and the musical is SO much fun.  It would be great to do a show like this.  We shall see. I won’t know for a while if I made the cut so I am not stressing over it too much and besides, rehearsal don’t start until late July so there’s PLENTY of time.  I had such a great time with “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and it would be nice to do a comedy after that heavy show.  Like I said, I’ll just ride the wave and see where it goes.

I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!  Enjoy it!  We will see you here on Monday!

Here are the retiring products that I used on this adorable Mickey D’s fry box.  Click a pic to order!

 

If I could make this project with yellow licorice, I knew I had to make with black licorice.  Halloween was the perfect fit.
