If I could only have one ink pad I would pick the VersaMark pad. Hopefully I’m never in that situation, but in case you ever find yourself in a “give me all your stamp pads but one” life-or-death position, now you’ll know which one to keep. Whisper White card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Peekaboo Peach: 4″ x 5-1/4″ Bermuda Bay: 3/4″ x 3-1/2″ Circle Size: 1-7/8″ This ink pad is like magic.

Since I live in Wisconsin popsicles are definitely a summer thing. Although spring is officially here now the weather hasn’t really gotten the memo. I’m looking forward to sunny days! Today I have a fold fun card idea for you to try. Of course you can grab any supplies you have, but I chose to use the Cool Treats stamp set and the Tasty Treats Paper for this one. With just a few scores you can make a fun fold card like this… Watermelon Wonder card base: 4-1/4” x 11” scored at 1-1/2”, 3”, 5-1/2” and 8” Small Popsicle Panel: 1-1/4″ x 4″ Medium Polka Dot…

Very basic, just Basic Gray ink on Smoky Slate card stock.

Very easy…
