I told you I’d be back with a happy card and you can’t get much happier than one filled with pink and polka dots. I decided to take two of my favorites for one last spin and the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #112 gave me a jumping off point.
Our 5th anniversary is just around the corner and I’m always the one caught without a card…not this year!
The Happy Camper stamp set is perfect to remind my Wrangler Wearing Sweetheart of our trailer honeymoon at the family reunion! I had just a little Lollydoodle left and since I’m trying to eliminate as much paper from my stash I decided it was the paper of choice. It also matched the pink polka dot washi tape that was sitting on my desk.
You can almost see the Wink of Stella that I covered this camper with. It kind of reminds me of an Airstream. I think I’d probably even be talked into buying a camper/trailer if it looked like this 🙂
I stamped some trees and clouds on the inside of this card before adding the Happy Anniversary sentiment.
Here’s a few more of my weekend card craziness! I love brightening mailboxes and who couldn’t use a little love? These two mini cards pack a big ‘pun’ch! They measure just 4 1/2 X 4 1/2 (I love square cards).
Both cards were stamped using the retired “Pun Fun” stamp set which reminds me of the goofy sayings that came on Valentines when I was a kid instead of the Barbie, Sponge Bob and Disney Princess of today.
For my first card, I started by running Lagoon cardstock through my Big Shot with the Heart Embossing Folder. One of the greatest things about our white core cardstock is that you can sand it and get just a touch of a distressed look. To finish I added a strip of Heartstrings B & T and a square of Cranberry to mount my image which I had colored with the ShinHan markers. The Aqua Dots seemed like a simple accent to give it a little bling.
My second card was made with the retired Lollydoodle papers (have I ever mentioned that I have a paper hording problem?) and instead of hearts I used the Dots Embossing Folder to match the dots of the paper. I once again colored the image with the ShinHan markers and topped the cupcake with a sprinkle of Red & Pink Sparkles (retired).
The inside of both cards was finished with one of my favorite stamp sets Doodled Designs which is perfect to enhance one of our M-sized stamps.
Thank you for stopping by…I hope it’s encouraged you to think outside the box when it comes to Valentines!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter “O”. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “O” element will be featured in their post.

My O is OWLS
This week my husband and I celebrated our four year anniversary. I love making him cards for all our special and “non-special” occassions. Since I recently made a box card that I was pretty happy with I decided that for a little extra punch I’d try another! I used the Lollydoodle paper, paired with the OWLS and GIRLS ROCK stamp sets along with Cricut Art Philosophy cut hearts. When the box is open it looks like the hearts are pouring out and I sort of wish that I’d added them to the second tab and put the flowers in first, but it’s all the same and packed full of love! I told him I was confiscating it back to display on the shelf above my desk – it’s just to cute to be stored in his memory box!
Our granddaughter is turning two next week and she is anything but girly, but Grandma has to try!
I paired Lollydoodle with the Robot Family stamp set and came up with this cute birthday card. I added a “gear” cut with the Artiste Cricut cartridge instead of a flower. I love how the front panel of this card stands out and think it will make for a very happy birthday!
Thanks for stopping by…I hope your geared up with inspiration!
