Circle Framelits turned into Watermelons!

Today’s project looks delicious enough to eat! I posted a few weeks ago another Watermelon project but I couldn’t just stop there! I was inspired by a similar card created by another demonstrator, Debbie. This one was featured in my ‘Summer Fun’ ABsolute Stampin’ Club class this month. Everyone loved it!

The watermelons are easier than you think to make! All you need is the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (if you don’t have one yet get ready for a special coming in August!) and the Circle Collection Framelits Dies. Oh and the versatile Bird Builder Punch.

Just cut the layers with the different size circles (largest is scallop circle) and then create the seeds from the branch in Bird Build Punch. The watermelon rind was created using ink and sponge dauber. Easy and so fun!

Cute and Simple – Kinda Eclectic

So I was persuaded to purchase the Kinda Eclectic stamp set by some of the amazing Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world. When I originally saw this stamp set in the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog I kind of looked over it and didn’t see a need for it. Well, I was WRONG! The more and more I saw Kinda Eclectic projects I knew I had to have it! It is such a versatile stamp set so watch out for more projects with it coming soon!

This card was the cute and simple project from my ‘Summer Fun’ club class last weekend. The colors on the card are from the Regals Collection which normally make me think Fall colors not Summer colors. However, in this card it fits summer perfectly! Don’t you agree?

Oh and last minute before the class I added some Basic Rhinestones to the butterflies. (Imagine it as I realized these pictures were taken before the class.)
