Stampin' Friends - No Rules June Blog Hop

Welcome everyone!  Today is the day!  Time for our monthly Stampin' Friends Blog Hop.  If you are following along with the hop, you have just arrived from Barbara's Hop.

Don’t forget to click the Next button at the bottom to continue on the hop with Stacey’s blog.

This month we have some awesome guest hoppers. 
Please make sure to stop by their blog and show some love.

This months' theme is "No Rules" - yea!  We can create what ever we want.  

With Father's Day just around the corner and both my daughter and husband's favorite past-time being the same, I decided to go with a Golf theme.  

After visiting Pinterest for some inspiration, I decided to CASE this card and project.  The card turned out so cute.  I used the Cucumber Crush green card stock for both the background and the spot of grass that the "Tee" is stationed on.  I cut the "Tee" out by hand from Cherry Cobbler.  I used a 1 1/2 inch circle punch and cut out the "Golf Ball" and embossed with a retired folder.

I think that the combination of the card with "Tee Time Fees" and the adorable container for the balls and tees make the perfect Father's Day gift, don't you?

I think that this gift would make for the perfect Daddy/Daughter day!

I used an empty Tissue Paper roll as the base for this project and covered it with Cherry Cobbler card stock.  I cut 2 - 2 inch  coordinating  DSP circles and slightly snipped all around each circle.  

I then cut strips of the DSP to glue around the edges.  I used the top of the container to help bend over the snipped edges to glue the strips around to make the cap on both the top and bottom of the gift container.  Using the same DSP and card stock I added the "Golf Bag" handle and side pocket.

I certainly hope you enjoyed my items that I've shared.  Be sure to leave a comment for an opportunity to win multiple prizes.  Hop along with the rest of the gang and leave a comment with #SFJuneHop to have more chances to win!

As always, Happy Stampin!

OSAT Blog Hop - Summer Lovin

OSAT 2016 Blog Hop Banner.jpg

Welcome to this month's OSAT blog hop.  Wow, the month has flown by... I was caught off guard by all the year end activities with school.

This month's theme is Summer Lovin'!  I received my order from the new Stampin' Up catalog on Wednesday and haven't had a lot of time to go thru and ponder what I will make with all of it, but I did use one of the new sets to create my card this month.  When I think of summer, I think of the outdoors.  Summer definitely brings loads of bugs!

I love this stamp set with the Lady Bug's.  I have challenged myself that in creating new cards, I must use some of my paper pieces I have collected.  Yes, I am a paper hoarder! I used some of the smaller pieces for the pennant to stamp the image and sentiment.  I used accent pieces from my "stash" and used a strip of patterned paper along with a small piece of black card stock.  I used some smaller pearls and colored them with the Cherry Cobbler marker and used the marker to color the lady bug image.

For my project, I created a matching Lady Bug box from the Curvy Keepsake die set.  Again I used the Cherry Cobbler and Black Card Stock.  Black archival ink and daubers were used to make the pattern on for the wings.

I hope you have enjoyed my creations for this month's hop.  Be sure to check out all the awesome creations the team has for this month.  Next up is Lori!  You can reach her blog by clicking the next button below or follow any of the hoppers at the links provided.
