Grapefruit Easel Thank-You Card

When you are so grateful for someone you could just SQUEEZE them tight, here’s your card!

The Sweet Citrus stamps can become anything (oranges, lemons, limes and even coconuts!) so this time I used Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo to turn them into GRAPEFRUIT.

But the best thing about this card is that it’s an EASEL card when you open it and stand the front up against the slice inside:

It’s a simple fancy fold: The card base is an 11″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mango Melody card stock scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″, plus you’ll need another 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Mango Melody to adhere to the bottom half of the front of the card ONLY (below where it bends) to create the part that stands up. Then just decorate the front panel as desired.

Inside, you’ll need a piece of fruit to create a “stop” for the easel front to rest against. I used a slice of grapefruit popped up on a few dimensionals:

It’s a very easy card to make and yet it packs a (grapefruit) PUNCH!

Thanks for visiting my website and choosing me to serve your creative needs. Your support means so much to me!

Here’s a bonus for reading to the end: I also made this card with the Beautifully Happy set from Sale-a-Bration (last month), just to show how versatile this style of card is.

Marching In with New Craftivity ONLINE

The start of a new month is like a breath of fresh air: It feels like new opportunities and endless possibilities. Welcome, March…I am feeling rejuvenated!

Much like opening a box…even when you know what you ordered…it is exciting to add something fresh or new to your crafting space! My teammate Sue gave me a new brand mascot for my Creative Juice Stamping Studio and it sits next to a sign Kristi (another Sprinkled Ink team member) gifted me: they make me smile (:

Something else to give fresh air to your creativity:

NEW Online Exclusive Products in my Stampin’ Store!

Take a moment and look through the offerings…you will find many new items, like the Hello, Irresistible Suite (above) or the Rhino Ready Bundle:

AND you may see some returning classics…like large CIRCLE PUNCHES!!!

I can’t tell you how often I’ve reached for my 2″ and 1-3/4″ circle punches in the past year, but haven’t been able to use them because they weren’t available. Now they are back, and no craft room should be without them!

As you browse through the 3 pages of new products online, think about what March events you need to craft for: Birthdays? Easter? If you need an excuse, let’s plan a Crafty Potluck lunch with your friends: Ya’ll bring the food and I’ll bring the fun!

We Need a Little Citrus

You’re up to your neck in Christmas, but what is Christmas without an orange in the stocking? Or in this instance, a whole case of citrus fruit?

This was another situation where the inspiration woke me up early to create a card! The Global Design Project #gdp372 challenge was to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) a project by Kayla McCreadie:

I reached for my new signature stamp set (coming in the January 2023 Mini catalog!) SWEET CITRUS:

With a coordinating Hybrid Embossing Folder and dies, I guarantee you are going to see a LOT of this set from me!

Lest you think it’s not timely for the holiday season, let me show you a Christmas card I showed in yesterday’s live video: This one features a sentiment from the Cozy & Bright Kit currently available in my Stampin’ Store…and highly recommend you collect this kit before it’s gone, so you can use the sentiments from the kit with the Sweet Citrus bundle next year, plus, it’s a very easy kit to assemble and could still afford you time to send Christmas Cards this year.

In addition to the Sweet Citrus bundle (which will be available on January 5th…or you can join my team and order it now!), these are the supplies I used for the Christmas Card:

May you squeeze the most from the holidays, and look forward to this bundle at the beginning of the new year!
