Hats Off to this Father’s Day Card

Whew! The past two weeks have been a whirlwind. My assistant Alex and I had a cold the first week so we were unable to go live and the second week I was on vacation in Oklahoma. It was so good to see my son, daughter-in-law, and grandsons. It was so much fun! We were able to see my youngest grandson’s ball game and go to the Amish Cheese House.  My husband and I also went with them to a Tulsa Drillers ball game. I am getting back in the swing of being back home with gardening, crafting, and being back in Arizona.
Since Father’s Day is coming up I wanted to make a special card for all the Fathers in my life using the Hats Off bundle from Stampin’ Up!

Hats Off Bundle [158361] – Price: $35.00

This bundle is great for a wide variety of uses outside of making Father’s Day card that includes making hats for sporting events, outside activities, baseball, and fashion. Plus the hat is cute to have on hand in your crafting collection.

 

Using the Hats Off Bundle

This set comes with badges so that you can customize your hat for any occasion or gender. I am using the mountain stamp to make a badge for his customized cap!

Here is another card using this same layout. I made this card as part of the Mystery Stamping section of my team meeting with the people in my team using the Garden Birdhouses Stamp set.

An Elegant Hand-Penned Card That You Can Make Too

An Elegant Hand Penned Card

This past weekend I went to a wonderful graduation party for a friend’s daughter who was graduating from high school. It was so much fun seeing people I haven’t seen in quite some time! The food was fantastic and we had a wonderful time celebrating Kayla!
At Graduation Party
Then our Dairy Queen opened up recently and we made a trip there on our way home. It was so good, our Dairy Queen had been closed for a bit so it was nice to see it opened.
Today I am going to show a wonderful elegant card made from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set. As I was looking on my phone I stumbled upon this technique over the weekend and fell in love with this technique although I don’t remember the individual I found it from. After looking at the flowers in my garden I was inspired to play with the elegant Hand-Penned stamp Set!

The Hand-Penned Stamp Set is so pretty! The font in this set is one of my favorites because it looks like someone with great handwriting just wrote the sentiment.

It means including others, even when we disagree, have contrasting life experiences, or simply see things differently. Caring about people first is our greatest strength!

New Catalog Kickoff Day

New Catalog Kickoff

This week I have been busy with my garden, taking advantage of the warm weather here in Arizona. I have been planting flowers in my front yard and vegetables in my garden. This weekend I plan on planting squash, spaghetti squash, and butternut squash to go along with what I have already planted; carrots, onions, and radishes.

Planter

My strawberry and pansy planter is doing so well! I am so pleased with how everything is blooming and growing!
Today was my Catalog Kickoff Day! I went live multiple times throughout the day on my Facebook page! It was so much fun! I was able to play with new products and did a catalog walk-through!

Catalog Walk Though

My first video was a catalog walk-through where Alex and I went through the catalog. I swear each time we go through it we something new and exciting!
Here is a pre-recorded Facebook Live

This walk-through looks at the catalog with an emphasis on the symbols and new products!

I was so excited to receive a set of the new set of soft pastels that feature a variety of bright colors. They are easy to use and you can use a variety of Stampin’ Up!’s coloring tools such as Sponge Daubers, Blending Brushes, and Water Painters. You can even create your own palette by using a scrap piece of paper to scribble down some color before picking it up with your Water painters to create your own watercolor paints.

Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!
A beloved baseball-themed kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB! A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Additionally, Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple of sticks of the chewy staple; and chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.
