Free Father's Poem, Mouse Party Samples & Summer Fun!

Hi Everyone,

Free Father's Day Poem &/or Crown
Ideas Using Favorite Fellas Stamps
New Mouse Party Samples!
It's All About Me Challenge on Splitcoast

I have a free printable poem for Fathers Day and lots of fun samples to share! If the poem won't get larger when you click it on, you can download the poem HERE and save it as a picture file. It's a poem I scanned from 1930's card.

If you would also like to make a crown for good ol' Dad to wear this Sunday, you can get our free Funky Crown Pattern HERE!

The winners of the Party Crown Contest were Marlene Bender, Samantha Sibbet, Robin McCormack, Julie Campbell and Amber Tosh. In case you missed them, you can see each of their fantastic crowns HERE!

If you already own our Favorite Fellas Stamps and you haven't made a Fathers Day card yet, dust off your stamps and have a look at some of the great ideas HERE in our Gallery!

Be sure to click on page 2 to see all the samples! I just typed 'Fella' in the search box in our Gallery to find them. There are a few unrelated cards but lots of great ideas! I love these ties DT member Lisa Zappas created by stamping on papers from our Earthy Paper Pad. All of the other stamps she used are from the Favorite Fellas set as well.

With Summer here, I also had to show you this little fishing tag booklet DT member Pam Hooten created last year. Pam used a combo of these stamps: Fishing Buds, Hardware, Kewpies, and the 'Happy Fathers Day’ stamp she used on the front is from our Favorite Fellas set. Paper is from our Earthy Paper Pad. Go check out all the samples HERE.

I will show a bunch more Summer theme samples on my next post.

Now, look at these totally cute Mouse Party Samples! Our design team have begun to receive their sets and some of the ladies have had a chance to play! This brand new medium size

stamp set will be available to order this Friday, June 19th! You can ask your favorite store to order it in for you.

Also, Linda Poulsbo from WA won our new Mouse Party Clear Art Stamp Set on our last blog giveaway.

DT member Marisa Grosson created this adorable scene and I love the way colored the mouse bursting out of the paper! Marisa will also be posting details on her blog HERE later.

DT member Lisa Zappa thinks these might be her new fav stamp set and went on a little mouse party creating various adorable cards! Look at the way she cut out her stamped balloons and added them on this card.

Here, Lisa repeated the little mouse stamp and then gave the one in the middle a horn to toot. You can see all her cards up close and get the details HERE on Lisa's Blog!

Now, look at how cute this card would be for a little girl! ST member Michele Kovack just sent me this adorable card this morning and I know as soon as she has time she will post it on her blog HERE and tell you what colors of Copic Markers she used for this pretty effect.

Michele also created this sweet card using the Mouse Party set as well. I love the way she added the candle to the hunk of cheese as a slice of cake!

Look at these 2 sweet cards that Rimna and Marja from Sweden posted HERE in our Online Gallery HERE. You can see all sorts of great samples like the sewing card DT member Pam Hooten created.

Lastly, I wanted to tell you about the NEW It's All About Me challenge Pammyjo is hosting over at Splitcoast. The idea is to create a card using any of our products that express you! You can read more about it HERE and see the Gallery HERE. Why not join in the fun!

Here is Pammyjo's Card and I love how she recorded how she feels it defines her.

From the top of the card to the bottom....

Hot Flashes for sure and they definitely come in waves this color with the bold contrast

Pink Breast Cancer ribbon........I was 1 in the 1 out of 7 to plant them, cut them, smell & enjoy

A Bra with an actual cup size......thanks to reconstruction

The pink passion hearts....a reminder to comfort my soul

Buttons, Stitching, Patterns and Scissors......I'm a seamstress

Until the next post, I wish you joy & creativity
Sandy Redburn
