Happy Monday, Gang!
Today I’m sharing a fun handmade card to celebrate the 4th of July. I know most of us don’t really send out 4th of July cards, but I do like to make a few to give to the kids with some 4th of July fireworks (sparklers and poppers) with a little note inside reminding them to be fun … and safe.
For this card I used some Hazel & Ruby Pass the Tissue paper in Quote Collage, and then applied star stencils from Everyday Shapes.
Adhere Pass the Tissue paper to coaster chipboard with Mod Podge.
Apply star stencils.
Water color the top half of the piece red, and the bottom part blue.
Allow to dry.
Remove stencils and outline stars with Imagine Craft’s Irresistible Pico Embellisher.
Adhere to 5×5 card base.

Happy Monday, Gang!
Toady I’m sharing a really easy and fun little bookmark.
Easy as in this takes minutes, and very few supplies: chipboard, shaped punch, Hazel & Ruby’s DIY Decor Tape (I used Golden Dots), scissors, adhesive, and a paper clip.
I rolled out a piece of the DIY Decor Tape and pressed my chipboard down on to it.
And then trimmed off the excess.
And punched out hearts with my shaped punch.
You could hot glue the heart to the top of the paper clip, but I used a foam dot.
What a great little add-on when gifting a book!

I’m back today to share the card that I made for my daughter’s birthday yesterday. I had purchased the Hey Kid collection from Pink Paislee a long time ago, and never used it, and thought it would be perfect for her. Mint green is her favorite color, so I paired some close pieces from the collection with a great mint green wooden tag that I got from the Inspire Lovely ETSY shop (the little silver tag is from there too).
I hope you’re having a great week – it’s almost Friday!

Just popping in real quick to share some Father’s Day cards I made this weekend. I posted these over on Instagram, and am using the same pictures (unlightened/edited, sorry).
These cards came together super quicklike using pieces from Inspire Lovely on ETSY. And with the exception of the little silver tag, I didn’t pay for any of the pieces – they were all the fun bits that she includes in her packaging. I really don’t let anything go to waste 😉
Here’s to a great week!

I have really fallen off the card wagon this year, but special occasions for special people just require a handmade card. Special occasions like the husband’s birthday. Made with the Nautical collection from Fancy Pants.
