Today I am sharing a couple of Fun Projects and the first one features the Brand New Up, Up & Away Cutting plate, TE's Brand New Little Bits Confetti & Candle dies, TE's Brand New Little Bits of Birthday stamps set, TE's Brand New Double the Fun Matching Sequins 'Girl', TE's Brand New Matched - Double the Fun Kit of Fabulous Patterned Papers and Coordinating Cardstocks too!!... 8-)
OMGoodness, Can I just tell you How much fun I had putting these cards together!! So much so that I made two, One for a Guy and one for a Girl! The Up, Up & Away cutting plate made it Sooo Quick and Super EASY to create both these Fun Cheery cards too! And I know you are going to LOVE that as much as I did! 8-)
For the Girl Version I thought I'd make a Super Fun and Girly Shaker card! I started off by creating my Pink Fluffy Cloud BG with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, my TE Cloud Border Die Template and a small stippling brush And stamped my Little Bits of Birthday Sentiments with Memento Rich Cocoa. I added lots of fun Die cuts with the help of TE's Brand New Little Bits Confetti & Candle Dies along with Double the Fun Matching Sequins 'Girl' And topped it off with my Up, Up & Away Cutting Plate Die Cut that I had added a bit of shading with Victorian Velvet Distress ink, adhered to a bit of acetate, lined the edges with foam tape & and sandwiched the sequins and confetti inside. To finish it all up I just topped my balloons off with various patterned papers from TE's Brand New Matched - Double the Fun Kit. 8-)
And for the Guy Version, I made it a bit simpler... No shaker card this time, lol. My Hubby says when it comes to 'Guy' type cards the best advise is to remember Less is More! ;-) So I kept it simple! I did pretty much the same steps, accept my fluffy clouds were created with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and I included TE's Choice Kraft CS along with TE's Brand New Matched - Double the Fun Kit of Fabulous Patterned Papers and Coordinating Cardstocks.8-)
Next up To celebrate our 6th year, we've designed a special party favor, Think Happy Thoughts. This petite stamp set includes a very "happy" coordinating die and will be FREE with orders over $50 beginning on September 11th - September 21st. One free set per customer, while supplies last.
And today I'm featuring TE's Think Happy Thoughts stamp and Die set along with TE's Brand New Party Monsters Dies, (that coordinate perfectly with TE's Party Monsters Stamp set!) TE's Brand New Zig Zag Embossing Folder along with TE's Brand New Matched - Double the Fun Kit of Fabulous Patterned Papers and Coordinating Cardstocks too!!... 8-)
I stamped my Adorable Party Monster with Memento Tuxedo Black onto TE's Choice Snow White CS and colored him up with my trusty Copics. I cut him out with the help of the Brand New TE Party Monsters Dies and popped them up with a bit of Foam tape.
My Mats & BG Layes were created with TE's Brand New Matched - Double the Fun Kit of Fabulous Patterned Papers and Coordinating Cardstocks & TE's Brand New Zig Zag Embossing Folder. To finish it all up I Added my Layered Think Happy Thoughts Die Cut, and spelled out Happy with TE's Min Caps Alpha & #'s Die cuts, added a few Double the Fun Matching Sequins 'Girl' & stamped my Think Happy Thoughts Sentiment directly onto my Card Base...8-)
