Design Team Monday with Susie

Welcome Eyelet Outlet Fans!
Susie here with two summer cards for you.

Just last week my husband said, "Can you believe summer is almost over?"  I actually dismissed it without much thought, but then at dinner with some of my friends who have children, the exact same statement was made!  How can that be?  So I decided to make a few more summer cards before it really is over.  This little guy is holding up a fan brad and has a beach ball brad at his feet.  He really IS pretty cool!!  And he most certainly does NOT believe summer is almost over.

And here is another summer card for you.  It is adorned with some fun bucket & shovel brads and of course sports a "warm thoughts" sentiments.  Summer where I live is VERY warm!! I hope you found some fun summer ideas here today.  That's it for me today, but be sure to stay tuned here at the blog.

We always have something fun to share with you and inspire you! 

If you have a chance, I would love for you to visit me at The Dies Have It.

Design Team Wednesday with Alice

   Hello Eyelet Outlet fans, Alice here with today's inspiration. First up is a card with a multi stamped image, embellished with a few of our popular brads.

Happy Fishes

Using brads to decorate is super fun. Love how these graduation cap brads from Eyelet Outlet fits these fish stamps so perfectly. The fun doesn't stop there, with so many varieties of brads available it's fun to keep adding brads to my card!


Next is a card featuring our sticky back bling!

Bling Flowers

Design Team Wednesday

Hello Eyelet Outlet friends, Shemaine here today sharing a few summer cards I created with my Cricut Explore, watercolors and some of my favorite Eyelet Outlet brads.

The Explore cuts just about any medium so I thought it would be great to cut some images with water color paper and color them with my Tim Holtz distress inks.

Eyelet Outlet Supplies: 

I used Canson water color paper I bought from Michaels with a 40% of coupon.

Cut out some images I liked from the Life is Beach cartridge with my Cricut Explore and colored them using a water brush and Tim Holtz distress markers.

I used circles of vellum paper painted lightly in the background and added the brads and bling strip to the Sea Horse.

For the next card I cut out a pre-designed card from the Life is a Beach cart with a sheet of watercolor paper. The finished card is 5.5 x 5.5

I used painters tape so the colors would not bleed into each other. I started with coral and then colored the outside border.

Once it dried I embellished the front with the die cuts I colored and added the Sea Shells and Shell corner brads. The bling strips were easy to adhere around the card base and I finished with vellum in the center of the card.

We'd love to see what you're creating with Eyelet Outlet brads. Share your summer cards with us on our Facebook page!

Thanks for stopping by.

Design Team Wednesday with Annettte

Hello Eyelet Outlet fans. I have a couple of cards to share today. One uses lots of bling and the other uses lots of brads. Most of the time, bling sits on top of an image, but I'm showing you a different way to use it. I die cut three balloons and placed sticky back bling behind the negative part of the image.

The next card uses brads. Like, a ton of brads. This card is kind of heavy and also dimensional, which means it's not really designed to go in the mail. However, you could totally hand deliver it.

Brads don't have to be just for accenting your designs. They can also be the star of the show! 

Thanks for visiting.
