Welcome to the blog of Jane Hignite, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

It’s Happy Hour!


Welcome to my stop on the VC Rocks June 2012 blog hop.  You probably came from Toni Tessler's blog .  This time around we are focusing on any size cards!  I created a Z Fold card for my Birthday Blowout Stamp Camp this week.  Z Fold cards are easy and fun to create. 

One of the must-have stamp sets for me this year was Happy Hour. I like the whimsical feel of the stamps! The Polka Dot DSP matched perfectly with the image I used too! Here is my creation:

2012 VC Rocks June Blog Hop Happy Hour Z Fold Card

2012 VC Rocks June Blog Hop Happy Hour Z Fold Card

The Z Fold card is a wonderful way to package a gift card.  Just put a few glue dots on the back of the gift card and put it on the inside part of the flap. 

Color combination on this card was Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White.  The new stitched ribbon is so sweet.  Did you know you can use your 1/2" circle punch to punch out the lemon (lime, orange, or?) slice?  All you need to do is stamp the image, use the punch, cut it in half, and you have your slice!  Much easier than hand cutting that little dickens!

 Well, there are lots of stops on this blog hop. Pam Mullis is the next stop along the way.  Hmmm, I think I am going to fix myself a cocktail!

I love that stamp set. It will be perfect for so many summer gatherings. I have even been trying to think of ways to use them other than glasses. Upside down for flower petals maybe? Thanks for sharing!

That's a great card, and what a lightbulb moment with the half-slice of lemon/lime!

Cute card!  Reminds me of the speciality drinks in New Orleans called Hurricanes.  Yummy, but you could only drink one!  Thanks for sharing with us.

Jane, I love this card.  I always forget about the different folds we can use and this one speaks to me.  I also loved how you stamped the image and used a Framelit to punch it out.  WTG and TFS
