Did you know that the third Sunday of July is National Ice Cream Day?  Yep, that was yesterday!  Did you celebrate?  I not only celebrated with ice cream with my kids, but also played with this awesome Carnival Fun Stamp Set from Close To My Heart, along with the coordinating Carnival Fun Thin Cuts dies, to create this darling card.

Not only does talking about National Ice Cream Day allow me to share this adorable stamp set, but it also gives me the chance to showcase a super cool trick you can do with this particular set of Thin Cuts that you might not have thought to do before.

Happy Easter!  Before the day was over, I wanted to share the cute little Easter baskets I made for my kids this year.  They are a twist on one I’ve created before but they turned out so super cute with this year’s *NEW* Spring Critters Stamp Set and coordinating Thin Cuts dies.

Stuck on You Gift Card Holder

Today’s share is a unique twist on a Gift Card Holder.  I used a brown lunch bag!  I cut it at 3″ keeping the base folded up to create my pocket.

Instead of adhering the sides closed to create the pocket, I simply made a belly band that I secured to the back of the bag.

Then the fun started!

Watercolor Paints are Wonderful

To the Moon Watercolor Card

To the Moon Watercolor Card

Playing with watercolor paints is awesome–it’s like you can’t mess it up!  Need a little more color, add it. Need less color, add some water. Plus, there are fun techniques you can do with the paints.  The one I’ve done here–a Salt Watercolor Technique–uses Kosher salt.  It’s super simple and just requires a little patience (or a craft heater works, too!)

Basically, you want to begin with Watercolor Paper.
