Stampin’ Up! Lemon Lime Twist with Night of Navy!

So surprised that EVERYONE didn’t fall immediately in love with Lemon Lime Twist.  That is the color that excites me of all the new colors!  Here I coupled it with Night of Navy.  Using the pretty matching papers from Eastern Palace Speciality Papers.  Eye catching for sure!  Sorry about the retired Special Reasons flowers but had to use them on this card.  One set that I will not be saying good bye to.  Wish SU had carried it over.

Lemon Lime Twist

Tranquil Tide (leaves)

Stampin’ Up! Red, White, Blue Candy Crate!

Favorite holidays!  4th of July is up there near the top.  I love fireworks and parades.  That just yells out 4th of July!  Recently we had an Amy’s Inkin Team Meeting, these were my favors to pass out to all the attendees.  I actually found Red, White and Blue Peanut and Regular M & M’s!  Also the Kisses were in blue foil as well in the Birthday section of Walmart.

Don’t you love the roster on the ends?  He’s on both ends.  I stamped this after I die cut the crate out.

These are the supplies I used in making these cute Red, White and Blue Candy Crates!

Card Stock:  Thick White Card Stock

Ink Pads:  Pacific Point, Real Red

Bundle:  Wood Crate Framelits and Wood Words Stamp Set

Stamp Set: Beautiful You (“Celebrate” Sentiment)

Candy Baggie:  Gusseted Cellophane Bags 3 X 6

Ribbon: Pacific Point  1/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon

Delightful Daisy DSP Graduation Gift Check Holder

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted since early April.  Life kinda has a funny way of  happening!  Many family members visiting, and most especially my work.  And then when I had a couple of days off, got my laundry caught up and went to my craft room, I couldn’t think of one single card I wanted to make!  Ever happen to you?  So without cards I had nothing to post about.  I finally gave in and pulled out the card fronts I made for On Stage the first of April.  I have never shown them and I do think they are pretty.  So I will be featuring them over the next few weeks trying to get my posting back on a regular basis I will start by posting just once a week on Saturday.

That said, I did make a couple of new cards recently and will feature those first.  The one I am showing today was a graduation check holder made with the lovely, inspiring Delightful Daisy DSP and the Daisy Punch.

This is the outside, the check I used was a Cashiers Check and it is unusually long- 8 1/2″.  The colors are: Calypso Coral and Old Olive.  See below for the list of supplies that I used on this project.

Here it is without the ‘Belly Band”.

The sentiment is mostly original.  I found the basic sentiment on the internet but was unable to find the author.  I changed quite a bit of it to suit my situation. The sentiment was printed from my computer on Whisper White Card Stock and cut to fit.  The little length of Whisper White at the bottom of the sentiment covers up my personal message and signature.  Forgot to take a picture  before I signed it!

Here are the supplies I used in making this holder.  If you would like the size of the cuts  please email me and I will be happy to send them to you.
