Let's get our Fishing Rules straight!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a fun Father's Day card FULL of awesome brads and of course some washi tape! Yep, Father's Day will be here before we know it and we need to get our Fishing Rules straight beforehand, lol! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from shimmery black cardstock. I built a little beach scene using Sky Washi Tape-Wide and Water Washi Tape for the background. I printed the Fishing Rules sign on kraft cardstock, adhered it to the background, and embellished it with 
Fishing Lure Brads, a Fishing Pole Brad, Trout and Bass Brads, a Wine Brad (don't laugh - I didn't have any beer brads and the wine bottle looked like it could pass for a beer bottle, lol!), a Seagull Brad and Shell Brads. I layered the background panel on kraft cardstock which gave it a nice contrast against the black card base. 

I embellished the inside panel with strips of kraft and black cardstock, adhered a stamped and die cut sentiment, and layered it on kraft cardstock. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

"Happiness is...

...a cup of coffee and a good book". Or, as I (Lauren) have interpreted it in this wish-fulfilling card, happiness is a pot of coffee, a room full of books and a few close friends! I made this fun scene using Eyelet Outlet Book TapeBook Brads and Coffee Brads, and populated it with adorable characters from Waffle Flower Crafts' Books and Coffee stamp set.

I did all my stamping on watercolor paper and colored with Tombow Dualbrush Pens with Prismacolor Pencil shading. I was a little disappointed that Bear's glasses were just a tiny bit too big to work with our Eye Glass Brads; but I was able to add a Heart Brad to the cover of the bear's book, swap the large stack of books that the bird is sitting on for two colorful Book Brads, replace the potted cactus with a yellow lotus flower from the Frog Brad Set and add a Coffee Brad and Funky Bee to the foreground.

I made the "Library" by affixing strips of EO Book Tape to a panel of plain white cardstock and adding a strip of skinny tape under each to work as shelves. I made a table from Hardwood Floor Tape (it's out of stock now, but we still have some great Wood Tapes); assembled the entire thing, added the fun sentiment (framed with ancient nested dies) and matted the panel on Foil Copper Tape before adding it to the front of my white A6 card. 

Of course, you could make a room setting for pretty much any character stamp you own, with just some Washi Tape as wallpaper (we have pretty much every style you could imagine!) and Eyelet Outlet Brad accessories; I hope you'll be inspired to create your own interiors!

sloooooooowest colorer...

Look for the Rainbows


Spring is definitely on it's way and right on schedule, the rain is here too. Lots of good things come with rain and rainbows are one of the nicest. We have a very fun Weather Washi tape which is perfect for this card. Our Cloud Brads and the Teardrop bling make this card work.

Moose in the Alpines at Christmastime!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here, sharing a fun Christmoose card with you today! Yep, I'm still (always?) in Christmas mode, lol! My favorite time of year! Although I have to admit that Spring is pretty darn awesome too, and we are enjoying some gorgeous Spring weather out here in Colorado! All right, so let me tell you about this fun card!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from Neenah Classic Linen along with a layering panel. I die cut and assembled the Alpines, added two Moose Brads and adhered them to the layering panel. I added a couple angled strips of Copper Skinny Washi Tape, adhered the panel to a piece of white craft foam and then adhered the piece to the card base. I added a stamped layered sentiment and several White Enamel Dots to complete the front. Pretty simple but effective! 

I embellished the inside panel with a couple strips of the cardstock used to die cut the Alpines, stamped the sentiment and layered the panel on more of the same cardstock. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Thanks a TON

It's been a difficult month for my family as my husband has been quite ill, but in spite of all the problems, blessings have been poured out on us by those we love.  Friends, family, and dear neighbors have brought food, sent cards, called, prayed, and mowed our yard.  Today's make is inspired by our deep gratitude! 

The scale is from the Cricut image library and the wonderful elephant brad is from Eyelet Outlet's Jungle Mix set.  

How about a little throw back Thursday?  Here's another thank you card I made a few years ago which features the giraffe from the Jungle Mix set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

More Alphabetical Brads?

 I (Lauren) have completed the third section in my Brad Alphabet book, covering the letters M through P; which comprises four new pages, featuring twenty-seven Eyelet Outlet brads in twenty different styles! 

For the letter M, we've got: a trio of mischievous Monkeys from the Jungle Mix; a Mask from the Co-Vid themed Mask, Hand Sanitizer and Soap set; the Mailbox from our Mail Brads; a Mower from the Lawnmower set; and a handsome Moose Brad.

Representing the letter N: a Nutcracker, some (Music) Notes; an Anchor Brad (which I've re-named "Navy"; yes, I've allowed a bit of artistic license with descriptions, so that I'd have enough brads to cover the entire alphabet!); a stack of Novels (technically they are Book Brads); and a Compass Brad is covering Navigation. 

The letter O includes: an Oven Glove from our Cooking Brad set; some Ornaments; a (Sketched) Owl Brad(we've got really cute colorful owls, as well); an Oak (at least I think it looks like an oak) which is part of the Summer Tree Brads; and a Onesie which technically falls under Baby Shirt, and alas the blue ones are out of stock.

For the sixteenth letter of the alphabet... aka P: a pair of pretty cool Penguins; a festive Party Hat; a slightly unseasonal Pumpkin; Popcorn from the Popcorn and Ticket set; and a Pig from our Pig and Sheep Brads.

My bookring is filling up really nicely with ATC's and I still have TEN letters to go; though when we get to Q, X and Z one suspects there will be a bit of doubling up!

I hope you'll be inspired to check out the wide variety of Eyelet Outlet Brads, I'm pretty sure we've got one or two styles that will be perfect for your next project!

is still having fun 
with this idea!

Dad, the Tool Man!

Hello, Eyelet Outlet fans! I hope you've had a great week! Leslie here sharing a cool Father's Day card featuring lots of manly brads and washi tape! What man doesn't love tools?! And you'll notice that some of the tools match the washi tape which is a big plus! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from white cardstock. I layered together strips of white and burgundy cardstock and added a strip of Tool Washi Tape across the bottom. I adhered a very thin strip of the burgundy linen cardstock across the top edge of the washi tape for a little definition. I added Tool Box and Nail Brads, Tool Brads and Screw Brads to the panel before adhering it to the card base on foam pads. I stamped the sentiment in red ink, cut it with a stitched square die, and adhered it to the panel. 

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of Tool Washi Tape across the bottom to tie in the tool theme. I adhered a very narrow strip of burgundy linen cardstock across the top edge of the washi tape, stamped the sentiment in red ink, and layered the panel on burgundy linen cardstock. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!
