Stars and Popsicles

I keep finding cards I haven't shared so here's a couple from a couple weeks ago.

This one was for a fellow coach's challenge for a graduation card.  Since I have no "graduation" themed stamps I made do with this fun text from the Rock Notes stamp set.  I used card stocks and a background stamp and ink that will be in the new catalog and available July 1.  But how about that arrow die!!  I used the Border Details die (also in the new catalog, I hope) and cut it 5 times!  I saved all the little pieces to use in the negative spaces!  Time consuming, yes!  But love the effect!  I also use the Star-Dom and Star Piercing Elements dies and Black Licorice Twine.

I do love how this card turned out.  I did see someone do the arrow die like this so it's not an original thought.

I wanted to play with a new set from the Summer mini catalog called the Too Cool Bundle, stamps and coordinating dies (a great deal!).   I also used Beach Ball, Whip Cream, and Lemon Drop card stocks and a retiring print card stock called Yummy Prints.

Did you notice the Lemon Drop corner piece?  I actually used a piece of a die cut from the Cupcake Liner die! I used my Copic markers to color the popsicles then added some Glaze to the center one and some Sparkle Cuts for bling.  I sponged some Beach Ball ink on the edges of the Whip Cream and Yummy Prints layers.

You only have a few days left to get your fave retiring products at 40% off.  Here's the list of gone and limited products.

Click on the pic to enlarge it to read. I do have 4 retired and retiring stamp sets that I'll be giving away in a drawing for those ordering $75 (before ship/tax) by midnight May 31.  See them on the FSJ page.

In 2 weeks I'll be in Scottsdale, AZ at our 2nd annual FSJ convention!  I will be ordering about 16 or 24 catalogs for my customers.  Reserve yours soon!  I'm charging $15 for each (includes shipping to you if needed) with $10 off your first $50 order (before ship/tax) placed by Sept. 1, 2016. Just contact me!  The actual cost of the new catalogs is $12.95 each as they are about 100 pages LARGER than our previous catalog!
