I needed a gift card holder for a friend, so I started with Celebrations Duo Framelits.  Stamped little dots over the deep embossing and I really like the finished card!

Where have you seen that “you” before?  It’s from Work of Art!  The little dots are from that set also.

Here’s what it looks like when it’s opened:

Wetlands for August

IMG_1125

I keep seeing beautiful cards made with this set called Wetlands, and I finally purchased the set.  The August calendar page shows an example of about the quickest card you can make!

The background is a stamp from Work of Art stamped in Daffodil Delight & Pool Party.

Then I just stamped the birds over the top with Momento Black Ink.  Two minutes tops!

Now hop on over to see what Crystal & Anne have come up with for August.

SSINK Blog Hop Summer Create With Cheryl

Lots of swirls & stripes happening in this card!  Stamp sets used were Work of Art & Swirly Bird.  Can you guess where I found the sentiment?!  You know you’ve seen it somewhere… Bear Hugs!  I just taped off the lake full of fish part.  Hint:  Remember to remove the scotch tape before stamping!  Yes, I’ve done that.

Baker’s Box for Easter

This club’s projects will all center around Easter!

Lamb Baker's Box Createwithcheryl.me

This cute little box (idea is from Mickey Roberts) is simple to make using the Baker’s Box Thinlits.  The size is perfect to hold a handful of Easter treats (it’s a bit smaller than a cupcake).  And don’t you love that lamb?!   I colored him in with my Blender Pen using ink pressed to the lid of the ink pad cover.  I actually separated the “happy easter” from the lamb to make it easier to use for baby cards.  I’ll show you how to do this at Club.

March Club will be Saturday, March 12 at 2 pm at my house in Haiku or Sunday, March 13 at 1 pm in Pukalani.  Guests are always welcome & just need to place a $25 order or pay $10.

Here’s another project I just love:

Work of Art Easter Egg Createwithcheryl.me

This pretty egg is decorated using Work of Art!  My favorite thing is the sentiment embossed using Melon Mambo Embossing Powder!  You can’t see it, but the Daffodil Delight stripes are sparkling with Wink of Stella!

Hope you can join us this month!

Cycle Celebration

My June Calendar Page really says SUMMER to me!  June 2015The stamp set is Cycle Celebration and Kinda Eclectic sun, Work of Art clouds & Gorgeous Grunge road.  I can remember riding my bike around for hours in the summer evenings until it was time for dinner.  This was when my mom would kick us outside to entertain ourselves…way before cell phones or computers!

I just finished reading a book called The Circle by Dave Eggers that kind of creeped me out!  It was basically a modern re-telling of 1984, set within the context of a tech company in the present day.  Now I find myself being more aware of the time I’m spending on computer and what I say on Facebook!  Spent some time outside today in the garden just digging in the dirt.  That’s summer to me!
