Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop Part Deux!
Hey there! Didn't you just love Marsha's projects!! She's so talented.
Any who, it's been cooooooold here lately! We hit -50F (you read that correctly) in North Pole, Alaska yesterday and I'm glad I didn't have to venture farther than the end of the road for the bus stop! Today it's hovering around -40, so its warming back up. LOL!
|I only live here because I love sharing this with friends. Bananas, right?|
For my first project, I CASED (copy and selectively edit, share everything, you get the picture) the annual catalog! I used the Balloon adventures set and made this fun and very simple balloon card. Its simple because the stamps are photopolymer, so they are completely see through. That makes it easy to line them up without using a MISTI, Stamp-a-majig, etc. The sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration set Tasty Trucks!
For my second (and third) projects, I wanted to make a 3D item and a matching card that could be used as a gift set. I made this box using my gift box punch board and the thin cardboard that comes off the top of a new pack of grid paper! I used the Sale-a-bration (SAB) Carried Away DSP to decorate with retired Mint Macaron lace ribbon with the other SAB metallic ribbon combo pack. They are gorgeous! It measures 4x4x3.25 and used an 11x11 sheet of paper or the cardboard, like I used.
The matching card for the box is this fun hot air balloon card! Since I had the perfect sized scrap, I might as well use it up, right? My favorite part of the DSP is you know what colors coordinate, making the choices much easier. I used the swirly bits from the cupcake cutout thinlits and the sentiment is from Glamper Greetings, which is on the carryover list! I think it matches perfectly!
Thanks for joining us on this hop! I hope you enjoy and found some inspiration for your own crafty projects! Have a stamptastic day!!
