It's officially summer, school is out, and thus my (Lauren's) thoughts have turned to all things beachy! Here's a card that features Eyelet Outlet Seagull Brads, Ocean Tape, Glitter Gold Tape, Sea Shore Brads, Pearl Bling and Glitter Enamel Dots:

I thought the tea and book sticker was a great place to start. I added a Donut Brad and a Fork Brad. I also added a thin foiled Happy Birthday sentiment strip.
Next I added a 3D number background paper to a white A2 card base and added two stripes of Book Washi Tape. I cut some brown cardstock in strips for borders and then placed the sticker on foam tape and on the card. Then I added three Black Matt Finish Enamel Dots.

Greetings EO Fans! I hope that those of you in the US had a great Memorial Day Weekend last week. To me Memorial Day is an important day to recognize those that have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. It also reminds me that Flag Day and July 4th are not too far away. Thinking about it put me in the mood to make a patriotic card for either of these occasions.
The slimline card sports red, white and blue and shows off many of the patriotic brads from Eyelet Outlet. A few gold and white glitter enamel dots gives it a little shine too.

Hey everybody! I hope you had a good week and your weather is nice where you are! Leslie here, sharing a Christmas card with a pretty inked snowy nighttime sky featuring our City Skyline Washi Tape and Snowflake Brads along with Santa and his reindeer!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from heavyweight white cardstock along with a layering panel from lighter weight white cardstock. I employed the DTP (direct-to-paper) technique to ink the background with stormy sky and chipped sapphire distress inks and then splattered white acrylic paint mixed with a tad bit of water with my fan brush across the panel. I applied a strip of City Skyline Washi Tape to a scrap piece of heavyweight white cardstock I had on my desk, cut it out along the tops of the buildings, and adhered it to the bottom of the inked panel. I stamped Santa and his reindeer and the sentiment in black ink, and then added the Snowflake Brads to complete the panel.
I cut the inside panel from lighter weight white cardstock and embellished it with a super narrow strip of blue cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on blue cardstock.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi everyone! Father's Day is coming up and for my family this is an extra special one because it's also my son's 17th birthday! Yes, folks. He was born on Father's Day. It rarely lines up on the same day but this is one of those years and I can't wait to celebrate with both of my best Dudes!
