Celebrate Pocket cu 06373
Weekly-Favorite
A big congrats to Brenda the newest Featured Stamper!  I chose THIS card of hers to case. I kept the pocket w/ insert & birthday theme, but I used different images, different colors & I left off the cute kitty in her picture.

Welcome to the May Challenge for Serendipity StampsThis month the challenge is My Girl (feminine card)! The Design Team has the added challenge of making either a pocket, special fold card or a gift box. You can get all the details over on the Serendipity Challenge Blog.  We have something new…a “Stamp of the Month”. Each month a different image will be 50% off. This month- it’s the Aprons. Be sure to check out the great deals on the Clearance Stamps, too. And as always, we have a  have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player. 
Celebrate Pocket 06374
For my project, I made a crossover pocket card. It’s actually only a pocket, as it doesn’t open, with an insert for the greeting. I had this green dp with flowers & glittered centers and I thought it would work well for the front of the pocket. I added a mottled orange dp and borders of the die cut Daisy Border. I used a portion of the Daisy Garden die for the faux belt across the front and added a glitter die cut buckle to finish the belt.

For the insert, I used a white panel I had die cut and cut the top off in order to add the Celebrate die cut on top. It was die cut once out of polka dot orange dp and 3 times out of heavy white. I attached the orange to one of the white cuts, stacked the other 2 white cuts together and glued them with the top of the insert in between. The cute little Daisy is new and I stamped, colored & fussy cut it. After attaching it, I stamped the Special Day greeting over it and the big Happy Birthday below it. A couple of orange die cut corners to the lower edge. These are the Copics I used on the flower.

If you’d like the instructions for the pocket, here are the measurements. (Click any pictures to make them larger.) After I cut the green flower print dp, I also cut an orange layer the same size then trimmed them both down to layer on the white card. Another orange piece of dp was added to the inside of the pocket & after these were attached, I added a strip of double sided tape across the lower edge & down the inside of the top right side of the pocket to permanently close it. The insert simply slips inside the pocket.

Dotty Pinwheel cu06386
Weekly-Favorite   CAS-Favorite
The Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS325) on Splitcoast today asks us to use Wheels of some sort..so I chose a Pinwheel! I’ve had these cute little dies for a while but this is the first time I’ve used them. I also have a tutorial on how to make your own pinwheels if you don’t have dies. Pinwheel Tutorial. Dotty Pinwheel 06384
So I die cut 6 small & 6 large pinwheel arms out of a blue/white double sided paper. I used a dot border stamp to add the blue polka dots on the white side. A fading dot border die was used down the left side then I backed it with the same paper & stamped a greeting and added the pinwheel.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Weekly-Favorite
The Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast (IC493) is a Pinterest board all about Barbie dolls. I was inspired by THIS Barbie with her light blue dress surrounded by all the colorful purses. My sis & I had Barbies & my favorite one had long red hair. We didn’t have all the fancy outfits these dolls have, but every year for Christmas, our aunt Sandy would make us new Barbie outfits. I loved those the best! I kept that Barbie & her outfits & let my DD play with her. Apparently Barbie joined the Marines during this time & now sports a high & tight haircut.

After die cutting the lt blue lattice paper, the white doily & white lacey square, I stamped and die cut about a bajillion butterflies on some polka dot papers then folded the wings upward & attached them around the doily. I added a blue center for the doily & a big polka dot button.

The greeting was stamped on a small oval & the edge was colored w/ a blue Copic before I attached it to a white fancy tag.
