I mustache you a question - Father's Day Fun Card

Hello Stampers!
 
Thank you for stopping by.....
Glad you can join me!
 
I saw a really fun card over the weekend...that I must share with you....I thought it was so fun....and I thought you would enjoy it....Father's Day is soon coming....although I lost my dad a few year's ago...he is still in my mind forever and all the memories will never be taken away!
 
Isn't this cute?
I used the Mustache die (which is being retired).
I used my Oval Framelits and just traced with a black maker the oval shape.
The spectacle was created using two circle punches....punching the smaller one first and then placing the larger one over the small punched one and punch again.... 
 
 
The bow was created using the Bow Builder Punch (which isn't retiring).
I also used the stamp set Guy Greetings for the saying.  The background DSP is a retired paper...sorry :-(
 

 
I think it turned out great.....
 
Give it a try...OMG...did I tell you how many different punch art designs I saw using this Mustache die?  You have to have it and add to your collection before it is gone...just check out my Pinterest Board Under Stampin' Punch Art to see all the fun things you can create....you won't believe it!....and it's on clearance sale.....less than $4.00!  OMG!  Get it...now!

Borderline Buddies Day...and some new project ideas to share!

 
Happy Borderline Buddies Day!
 
Super excited.....I was going to wait until later this week to share my projects from my Retirement/Sneak Peek Event I hosted last evening, but I figured it would be perfect for this week's Borderline Buddies Day Share!
 
It was Leanna's Turn this week to chose the challenge...and she picked new product...Woo Hoo!
 
Super excited as I finally actually got some time this past weekend to create...after I cleaned up some of my stamp room...never seems to be done...or organized to my liking....but then again...I tend to move things over and over again.....I like change!
 
So....here is one of the projects the peeps created last night!
 
Now isn't this the cutest?  OMG!   This was created using the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set with a coordinating punch!  Super cute.....This is the new Ronald McDonald Charity Stamp set where with the purchase of this stamp set, $3.00 is donated to the Ronald McDonald Charity....that's even a better reason to own this stamp set...and it's only available for one year....next catalog year, there will be a new stamp set...and they are highly collectable!
 

 
I used a brand new embossing folder as well.....Boho Chic....love the name even!  lol

 
There is so much you can do with this stamp set.....and I cannot wait to share with you other creations I made.....in the near future....everyone loved this....
 
Next up....which I'll share as well.....is retiring items...including the Designer Series Paper as well as the stamp used.....you can still get the stamp set, but I'm not sure about the DSP....as it may have sold out already.....The stamp set is Yippee Skippee....love that name too!

 
Isn't this donut the cutest?  It was a card which I saw on Pinterest and I knew when I saw it....it was a must make.....

 
The DSP adds the perfect "icing" to this card....and the gold embossing sprinkles....so fun!

 
Loving this card...think I'll make up a bunch just to have on hand for upcoming birthdays!...oh...the wood mount is on sale too!  Yippee....Skippee!  lol

Now...let's head on over to Leanna's Blog to see what she has created...I cannot wait!

Retirement Party and Sneak Peek Tonight!

Hello Stampers & Scrappers!

Hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend....mine was quiet...sort of speak but yet exciting!  We had a nice little family cook out yesterday...Michelle is an excellent BBQer....and I'm clean up committee...always have a saying in my house..the cook never cleans...well...sometimes the cook does...but I figured she slaved over the BBQ grill, so it was the least I could do!  :-)

Anyhow...I'm super excited...tonight is my Retirement and Sneak Peek Party!  I thought I would get a better response to attendees, but it sometimes...size does not matter....lol.....I am planning a super fun event....I have my catalog packets all together....and ready to hand out after the event....as well as two fun projects.....one retiring.....saying a sad good bye...and another new fun .... maybe my most favorite of the catalog...well...today anyhow...lol

Along with the catalog packages I have assembled, I'm going to be handing out a Wish List....in which there is going to be a contest where I'm going to have customers fill out their Wish Lists and post them online through my Facebook page.....and one lucky stamper will receive a free prize from me for participating... I am interested in seeing what you like best!  This will help me in the coming year to plan accordingly.  Maybe what I like isn't necessarily what you like.....so I want to see what catches your eye!

 
I was going to create my own Wish List and share it....so I started searching through my catalog and thought I would just put a few tabs on my favorite things I need...want...desire...have to have!
Well....ummm....I ran out of stickers!  lol
 
So as you can see, this year's catalog is the best!  Love it....and there is a special surprise section in this year's catalog....I'm not going to tell....but you are going to love it.....I am super excited and loving it!  Sorry...sworn to secrecy.....
 
 
I'm also going to have a fun cash and carry of some of my old old old retired items.....yup...cleaned out the stamp room this weekend too.....and they need new homes...not just gonna sit it out on the shelf.....it's going to be a lot of fun.....so maybe you can join us?  I'll post the pictures of the projects later this week so you can see what you missed!  :-)

Thought I would share with you a fun graduation card which I created....simple but yet classy!


 
Silver and Gold....and embossing...I'm working on posting a tutorial on this card for my You Tube channel...hopefully this week.....it's so simple but if you are new to embossing...you will love the tips and tricks I have to share.....I remember the first time I witnessed embossing.....ahhh....even the smell of heating up the embossing powder brings back those memories...........sigh.....

 
Okay...enough of that...but if you like this stamp set, you better hurry...as it will be gone come June 2nd, when the Occasions Catalog is retired.......Purchase it today..it's one stamp...and wood mount only!  I have a bunch of graduation cards created....and the fun part is that you can cut off the 2015 and use it later on after 2015....personalize your stamp to your liking!
