Yippee-Skippee

Live Rub-On Quotes 471417I love some of the new sentiments from Stampin' Up this year:  "I Freakin' Love You!"   or "I love your guts!" or "You kick booty!"  They're SO expressive and the way real people talk.  Well, maybe not, but close.  Really, imagine what it would be like if everyone talked the way sentiments on greeting cards read:

Wife:  Hi, Honey.  Did you remember today is the day we have a meeting with Liam's teacher?
Husband:  We don't remember days, we remember moments!
Wife: Huh?

Husband:  My mother is coming to stay for 3 weeks.
Wife:  Family - where life begins and love never ends!
Husband:  Who are you and what have you done with my wife???

Child:  Mom, I kinda fell in the mud, then I couldn't get my shoes off and the carpet is sorta all muddy....
Mom:  Thank you for the beautiful ways you touch my life!
Child:  Sweet!  I thought you were gonna be really mad!

I'm sure your imagination could work on that scenario for a while, but instead I wanted to show you a card with a really cute little sentiment!  And I've heard people actually say this when they're excited about something.  



This card was created for The Paper Players Challenge #162
Again, this isn't a palette I would have chosen for myself, but as I worked with it today, it kind of grew on me.  

  • The sentiment is from the stamp set of the same name:  Yippee-Skippee!
  • I'm not sure where the inspiration to try the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet again came from, but temporary madness is one possibility!  It's annoying at best and impossible at worst to get all those little bits of cardstock out of the doily shapes.  They are lovely if you have lots of time, but mine wasn't completely cutting through, which just added to the frustration level.  I got out the Perfect Pennants Bigz L die in the end because it has a couple of less lacy doilies on it.  If you have the same problem, try adding another layer of cardstock underneath the die as a shim for a cleaner cut.
  • I used the Delicate Details Lace Tape, cutting out individual circles of lace and mounting them on the cardstock, then punching them out with the 3/4" Circle Punch, which matches the diameter perfectly!

It all works together for a light-hearted, all-occasion card for those exciting moments in life!

By the way, the Big Shot Magnetic Platform is available for order starting today, and the Clearance Rack has been updated.  I wouldn't hem and haw about either of these for too long!  You know how fast things fly when they're announced!  If you order online, be sure to select me as your demonstrator and use Hostess Code QAZ7WGUR to save on shipping costs.
