I’m thinking some of those Jolly Rancher Watermelon candies inside…

Last project, I actually came up with myself…sort of.  I actually copied an idea from My Paper Pumpkin

I really liked the way the card slides into the pocket so I made this to go with the Watermelon theme:

Beautiful Bunch for July Club

I’ll be featuring the stamp set Beautiful Bunch at July Club.

Createwithcheryl Beautiful BunchThis fun project starts with a Crystal Lite container.  I’ve decorated it using English Garden DSP  and the Beautiful Bunch Stamp Set with coordinating punch (Fun Flower).  Found the original idea on Connie Babbert’s site.

Createwithcheryl Endless ThanksI made a 3X3 card to go with the container.  The words are from Endless Thanks and are cut out with the new Washi Label punch.  I used the Bow Builder Punch to cut out the “for you”.  Easy!!

If you’d like to make this project, come join us at club this month!  I have 2 dates to choose from:

Saturday, July 11 at 3:30pm at my house in Haiku or

Class of 2015

Class of 2015 CardHere’s one of the cards we made at club this weekend.  A graduation card that holds money- exactly what they need most!

Createwithcheryl.me Class of 2015

Open it up and it looks like a file folder.  The Night of Navy is beautiful embossed in Silver.  I bought the Confetti Stars Border Punch especially for this card!  So glad I did!

Here are the details:

  • Paper:  Night of Navy -8 1/2 X 9 3/4- (save the extra piece to punch the confetti stars on) then score at 3 1/2 & 7 being careful to score along the shortest side, Brushed Silver (8 1/2 X 1 3/4)
  • Stamps:  Class of 2015, BYOP
  • Extras:  Silver Embossing Powder, Square Framelits (first I punched out #6 square, embossed it, then cut it again with #5 square to leave you some margin for being crooked), Confetti Stars Border Punch, Dimensionals to pop up the front sentiment, Envelope punch board:  punch the left inside corner then punch again at 3″.

Hurricane Stampin’

Well…it all started with our club swaps last month.  Marylou made this beautiful card using the Starburst Technique, that I’d wanted to try but hadn’t gotten around to.

IMG_6196So this morning I dug through my tutorials and came up with a couple of cards.

IMG_6208

I’ll be the first to admit this is a strange mixture of colors!  But I like to step out of my comfort zone once in a while & I think it’s happy & it works!  This was one of the free “Prize Patrol” items I won at convention:  Flowerpot DSP!

IMG_6210

  • Stamp Sets:  Trust God, Bordering Blooms
  • Colors:  Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4), Pink Pirouette (5 3/8 X 4 1/8)
  • Accessories:  Flowerpot DSP, Starburst Framelits, Decorative Label Punch, 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon, Sponge Daubers

IMG_6211

Now, this one I really like!!  I’d like to say that I meant to make the bottom crooked, but well, I was stampin’ in a hurricane.  That’s my excuse!  That’s another wonderful thing about my “hobby”… you can totally stamp, cut, & glue without electricity!!  IMG_6213The flower is made by punching 3 flowers with my Pansy Punch, making 5 cuts down the middle of the petals, sticking a brad with a candy dot in the middle, then scrunching it up a little.

We’ll be making this card at club this weekend…assuming we have club!  It’s all depending on these 2 hurricanes…I’ll keep you all posted.

Gotta hurry & post this before the lights shut off again!
