Yay!! It's Friday!! It's just not ANY Friday either! Today is the reveal of Emma's new stamp sets! You should be arriving here from the talented Miss Glora's blog! In case you have just stopped by for a visit and want to start at the beginning of the hop (which I highly recommend you do so, you DON'T want to miss this hop lol) head to Emma's blog. I've made three different projects using the stamp set Have Fun In the Sun. I love this set! It's a great set whether you scrapbook or just like to make cards! Here's what the set looks like!
See, didn't I tell you that you were going to love them ha ha!! I hope you like how I used them!
As soon as I seen the word Camping I got all excited!! We camped for years so I know this stamp will be used! I decided to pair it up with another one of the sentiments Have Fun at the lake. I love the cricut cartridge, Campin Critters and have been wanting to make this back pack since I got it! The back pack and all its layers was cut at 10 1/2. I kept with the same colors pretty much that the booklet had as a example since it was the first one I've made. For the circle tag, I used Christmas Cheer and tied it with some twine! I did add some brads to the side pocket and also some faux stitching.
It's hard to tell in this photo but I wanted to give you some kind of idea how big the inside of the back pack is. I've added a bar of soap and two sample packs of shampoo. I'm sure it would also hold "maybe" a small bottle of bug spray. Or it could be used to add travel size tooth paste and other smaller items. Wouldn't this be cute to make for a Cub Scout group! Ok, on to my next project!
For this card I used the sentiment, Relax in the sun, wear flip flops & HAVE FUN! Isn't this a cute sentiment!! I used the cricut cartridge, Life is a Beach for the flip flops. The flowers are from my stash and I attached them with some gem brads. I also added some crystal gems to the strap. I pop dotted the heels of the flip flops to give them just a little bit of a heel. I also did some faux stitching. The twine is some that the sweet Miss Nikki sent me (Thank you Nikki!) I stamped the sentiment on a older cuttlebug postage die and added faux stitching to it and around the edge of the card. The paper is by Basic Grey.
Here is a picture of the inside. I apologize again for the photo! I can't take good pictures of the insides! I added some cardstock and used two more sentiments out of this set Summer and Vacation. I've got some friends heading to the beach, so for some reason I went ahead and signed this card without thinking! Here is a sideview of the card...
Now for my last project!
For this card, I actually used another one of Emma's new releases Happy Homecoming. It's that AWESOME border stamp (LOVE IT!) The you're invited is in with the Have Fun in the Sun stamp set. The cute pig is from the cricut lite cartridge, Block Party. I felt like he needed a little more to him so I added some faux stitching and tied a bow out of some twine (also from Nikki!) to his tail. I welded the base together in my Gyspy.
We have several BBQ's in the summer so I thought this would be a cute invitation to send! I went ahead and signed this one to (just wanted to see if my white jelly roll pen would show up good lol) I embossed the to a BBQ with white Zing embossing powder. I also added some more faux stitching with my jelly roll pen! Here is what it looks like from the side.
