Father's Day gift card envelope

So I finally got to use the Stampin' Up B.Y.O.P. set for my father-in-law's treat.   I used papers from Echo Park and some kraft and white scraps.  Ink is Jet Black Staz-On.  I used the number 1 measurement on the Martha Stewart score board with the envelope insert.  It was very quick and easy.  Thanks for looking!  April

Merry Wishes Christmas card

I love layers upon layers but they kill on shipping cost.  Every year it is a challenge for me to come up with a simple and fast to make card that ships cheap (or as cheap as any mailing is today).  I decided to use a white base card and the Stampin Up Seasonally Scattered "merry" stamp in Marina Mist.  I cut strips of Night of Navy about 1/2" x 2 2/3" and used the bitty banner punch to make the end notches.  I used the "christmas" from Endless Wishes in Versamark and silver embossing powder.  I used a couple of gemstones to accent the snowflakes and clear stardust gel pen for final accents.

Inside, I used Marina Mist to stamp the medium Endless Wishes snowflake and Night of Navy for the sentiment using stamps from Endless Wishes and Endless Birthday Wishes.  I also stamped the flake on the envelopes.
I ended up with 50 cards in just a couple of hours.  Thanks for looking!  April

Sending Birthday Wishes card

I have another quick card for you.  I used the envelope from Lovely Amazing You in Bermuda Bay, stamped on Whisper White.  I cut them out after stamping the heart in Night of Navy.  I used Smoky Slate to stamp the candles from Big Day.  The sentiment comes from Endless Wishes and Endless Birthday Wishes, stamped in Jet Black Staz-On and Night of Navy.  I added some dazzling diamonds glitter to the candle flames with a zig two-way pen.  Last, a freehand border in black pen.  Thanks for looking!  April

Happy Heart card

This card is made using the hearts mask and Pink Pirouette ink.  Next, the sentiment from Lovely Amazing You is stamped in Rich Razzleberry, then stamped over top with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I punched a little heart in red glitter paper and attached with a mini glue dot.  Super quick and I had six made in under 10 minutes.  Thanks for looking!  April

Baymax First Aid kit

I am working on more Fish Extenders for our next Disney Cruise and just keep finding some fun ideas for some odds and ends in my craft room.  A friend gave me several of these little plastic circle boxes that had electrical tape in them.  I have been staring at them for months and it finally hit me...Baymax!  The circle measures around 3 inches, so I set off to the computer and found adorable Big Hero 6 images.  I found some small lollipops so I had to have Baymax offering a lolli in the bottom.  I used his pain scale on the inside of the lid.  Think how much fun a kiddo with a boo boo would have with this!  I added some Disney band-aids and alcohol wipes, along with the sucker.  On the outside, I used white vinyl with silver metallic sharpie to make Baymax's program card slot.  Super cute and my kids are begging for their own now.  Thanks for looking!  April

Mickey Ice Cream ornament

I wanted to make some Disney-themed ornaments for our family and this is the first one I have come up with.  I used the Cricut Mickey Font cartridge to cut Mickey icons from Early Espresso and Whisper White papers.  Four icons fit on each 8 1/2x11 sheet.  It took one sheet of Early Espresso and six sheets of Whisper White.  I inked the edges of the white paper in Early Espresso ink and used a brown sharpie to fill in gaps.  I have some mini popsicle sticks and they happen to be the perfect size for the SU Word Window punch.  I used the end of the punch to make a notch in 8 of the white icons.  I used the scalloped circle punch for the bite in each ear.  I used the Zig two-way pen to glue each layer together, sandwiching a piece of ribbon in the middle.  I used liquid glass to glue the stick in place.  Once dry, I went around the edge one more time with the sharpie to fill any gaps.  Last is some liquid glass to make it look melty.  Sorry, it's still wet in the photo.  Thanks for looking!  April
