Summer Eyelet Outlet Cards

Today I have a couple of Eyelet Outlet cards for you!

This first card makes me think of relaxing on the porch with friends and an ice cold margarita! I stamped the clocks twice without reinking to create the shadow effect.

Ink: Clearsnap
Stamp: Joy's Life (Sentiment) and Stampers Anonymous
Cardstock: American Crafts and Bazzill

This card is bright and fun like playing on the beach. I used kraft to evoke thoughts of sand!

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: Simple Stories (yellow dot) and Jillibean Soup
Die cut: My Mind's Eye
Sticker: Jillibean Soup
Ink: Clearsnap
Stamp: Joy's Life
Twine: Canvas Corp

Runway Inspired Card

I created this card for a friend who likes pink and sparkle. The Runway Inspiration was pretty much perfect for this! I happened to have scraps of this tiffany blue and silver swirl paper laying on my desk and I just took it from there.

Here is the inspiration

and here is my take

The cardstock is Coredinations. The sentiment sticker is SRM. The silver swirl paper is Recollections.

Joy's life watermelon card!

This week the Joy's Life team is using WATERMELON as inspiration for our projects! I have to admit, I was a little intimidated with this assignment. I had no idea where to begin! Then I decided to make a watermelon slice. Now, I just adore this card!

I used the 'Seeds the day' stamp from the That Tastes Punny set. I created the watermelon by hand, using a rain drop punch for the seeds. The papers are Doodlebug. I put glossy accents on the seeds to make them pop. I also used some foam tape under the watermelon to make it stand out. The ink is clearsnap. The cardstock is Bazzill.

Cased card

I know I've been gone for a while. I got laid off and just didn't feel like being creative, but I'm back! I've been playing a little, which is something that I don't often get time to do. So, I'm happy to share this card that I made for the CASE study challenge.

here is the card that I 'cased'

I used SRM stickers, My Mind's Eye papers and chipboard and May Arts ribbon. I added the SRM stickers to the tag as well as the bottom left corner of the card. You can't see the 'happy' in this photo, but it's there behind the ribbon.

Joy's Life Great Catch Card

This week at Joy's Life, we are focusing on cards that relate to the great outdoors. Of course I had to get out my Wild Life Puns set

I used the 'You're a GREAT CATCH' stamp on this masculine fishing card. The papers are a combination of My Mind's Eye and Simple Stories. The brad is from Eyelet Outlet. The ink is Clearsnap.
