Oh Hello! I’m So Excited

May 17, 2014 No Comments

This has been a great week!  So many wonderful things going on and to top it off, I’ve been invited to join an international design team.  Tomorrow will be my first time to show my creations as part of this team.  You’ll definitely want to come back tomorrow for the blog hop. My excitement completely blocked my creativity yesterday.  I had trouble thinking past “Yippee!!”

In addition, today is one of the local Relays for Life.  My family has volunteered the day of for years.  I would like to give more but, I need your help.  Make a purchase in my store through tomorrow and use Hostess Code ZKGVZDPQ  I will donate 10% of your purchase to Relay for Life.  Why the Hostess Code?  Because I want to reward those of you who intentionally  purchased in order to help Relay for Life.  Your reward will be FREE shipping from me (that’s like a 10% discount for you) on orders placed in June.  I will contact you with details after you make your purchase this weekend.  So, be sure to include your contact information.

Now on to creativity. I’m still trying to play with some of my favorite retiring items that have not yet sold out.  No sense tempting you with something you can’t get anymore.  Today, I’m using Oh Hello.  I love all of the texture pieces included in this set along with the great typography and the really usable sentiments.

Oh Hello Circle Card Thinlit from theartfulinker.com

I started with the Circle Card Thinlit and a piece of Basic Gray cardstock.  If you don’t yet know how to add a flap to your thinlit cards, check out the video here.  Then, I’ve added a piece of I Am Me dsigner paper to the flap.  All of the confetti like circles of designer paper were a last minute decision.  Love how they draw the idea of the designer paper across the card.  You’ll want to pick up the handy Itty Bitty punch pack to make these.

For the outside of the flip, I punched Strawberry Slush with the 2 1/2″ circle and Whisper White was cut with the fourth smallest Circles Collection framelits. The sentiment was inked in Basic Gray and the banner was inked in Strawberry Slush and cut by hand.

For the inside of the flip I used: Strawberry Slush ink and Stampin’ Write marker;  a Circles Collection framelit; and Basic Rhinestones.

On the inside of the flip, I added another of the banner images from Oh Hello and matched it’s placement with the one on the front of the flip.  Then since Oh Hello doesn’t contain the word “Hi”, I inked an “H” and an “I” with the Stampin’ Write marker and created my own word from the letters present in this set.  I wanted an exclamation point, so I drew that paying attention to the style of the typography of the letters in my word.  Then, it was finished with a Basic Rhinestone.

The final detail was to add one more of the banner images.  It is lined up with the banner on the focal image so that they form an imaginary diagonal when the flip is open.  Scroll back up and you’ll notice that the banner appears to draw your eye to the flip when it is closed.

 

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back tomorrow for the blog hop.

And don’t forget to purchase from my store this weekend using Hostess Code ZKGVZDPQ so that I can help Relay for Life and you.
