Sweet Summertime Wishes...

Hi Everyone!  
It's time for my Joy's Life DT post. 
And Oh Boy am I am excited to be creating 
with Joy's new stamp sets this week! 
I love it when a stamp goes just perfect with 
that one project you've been dying to make...
Well, that's exactly what happened
this week...

Look at this cute little card I made...

The Ice Cream Cart and Ice Cream Cones 
are cuts from the Silhouette studio.  
I had to modify the awning to make
it come off the page.

This stamp was perfect for this ice cream cart:) 
It came from Joy's new stamp set called
"Sweet Popsicle Puns"
You can get this set and all of Joy's 
other sets HERE...

I also wrapped the little posts with
some Cotton Candy twine from
Trendy Twine

Click HERE to see the video I found on 
YouTube that inspired me to 
make the Ice Cream Cart
and modify my awning...

I hope you enjoyed my card today...
Now I must go have an Ice Cream cone:)
Don't forget to leave me some
sweet comments...you know how
I love to read them all!

Have a GREAT day:)

Just Chicken In!

Hello Everyone!  Thanks for visiting for my Joy's Life DT post today:)

I had such a good time making my card for this week...
It's all about animals.  I really had a hard time choosing which
one of Joy's stamps to use out of all of the
cute animal puns she has...
When I saw this cute MTC file I knew exactly which stamp to use...

Here's my card...


Close Up



Wasn't that just the cutest???

I found this rooster on the Make The Cut Forum...
It was created by Beanie over at Beanie's Tag Your It.
The paper I used is My Minds Eye and Pinecone Press
And of course the perfect touch was the
"Just Chicken In" stamp from the
Joy's Life Barnyard Puns stamp set...

You can get this and all of the amazing Joy's Life stamp sets HERE

Hope you enjoyed my card today!

To One of my Favorite Peeps...

Hello Everyone...
Here I am again with another post for the 
Joy's Life Design Team...
This week our challenge is to do any project
that is Easter or Spring related.
I have been so excited to do this project 
because I wanted to use the
"To One of my Favorite Peeps" Stamp.
It's from the Joy's Life stamp set called
"Barnyard Puns"
My project for today is called 
"Peep S'Mores"
Take a look...



Close Up of Stamp


I started off by using a quart size Mason jar.
Then I crushed one sleeve of graham crackers 
into crumbs and combined it with 
1/3 C of brown sugar. I took about 2/3's of this 
crumb mixture and put it into the bottom of the jar
packing it down a little bit.  Once that was done, 
I evenly poured about 1/4 cup of Easter M&M 
candies on top. Then I arranged 7 peeps 
standing up, with their faces out around the 
inside of the jar. I pressed them ever so slightly 
up against the glass but didn' t 
squash them. After that I carefully 
spooned the remaining crumb mixture into the 
center of my peeps.  You'll want to press this down 
a little bit just to keep it snug. 
But, be careful not to smash the Peeps.
To finish it off, I poured another 
1 1/4 C of M&M's on top.

I made a cute belly band using one of my 
Martha Stewart punches. The label for the sentiment 
was cut using my Silhouette Cameo.
The top of the jar is covered with a matching 
piece of cardstock using my 
2 1/2 inch Fiskars circle punch.  
The instructions were printed from my computer 
and layered with more matching cardstock to 
create a cute tag hanging from a Pear Pin that I got
from Jillian Vance Design, some Twine 
and Yellow ribbon.

You can get the stamp and all of the 
Joy's Life stamp sets HERE

I hope you enjoyed my post for today!
