Stylin' Stampin' June Hop

It's time again for our monthly hop. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to join these wonderful demonstrators each month; plus it forces me to take some me time and get creative!

For my 3-D project this month, I chose graduation and went super simple. These cute little caps are quick to make. I think they would be great for party decorations, or to assign place settings.
Supplies used:
Cardstock: Basic Black (2- 3x3 pieces, one folded in half)
Punches: 2 3/8" Circle
Embellishments: Calypso Coral Baker's Twine; 2011-2013 Printed Brads
Adhesive: Tombow Multipurpose
Tools: Tabletop Paper Cutter; Simply Scored; Paper Piercer; Craft Scissors

My card started with one thought in mind and it doesn't look anything like I had originally planned. I knew I wanted to use the 2012-2014 In Colors and the Button, Button set. I had initially intended to have an explosion of buttons on this card. You can see, that didn't happen! I was incredibly pleased with this card as I have had Button, Button since it first came out and I've used it once. It has always been a set I've struggled through designing with.
Supplies used:
Card stock: Baja Breeze; Primrose Petals; So Saffron; Very Vanilla; Gumball Green
Classic Ink (new firm foam pads!): Gumball Green; Midnight Muse; Primrose Petals; Summer Starfruit
Stamp sets: Button, Button; Curly Cute; Four Frames
Adhesive: Glue Dots; Tombow Multipurpose; Snail
Punches: Petite Pennants; Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack; 1/2" Circle; 3/4" Circle; Modern Label; 1/16" Circle Handheld; Word Window
Ribbon: Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots
Brads: 3/16" Metallic
Embossing Folder: Adorning Accents
Tools: Color Coach; Tabletop Paper Cutter; Simply Scored; Big Shot; Craft Scissors; Stampin' Scrub; Stampin' Mist

Quick Tips

Need a temporary bond for a stencil or mask? Or do you need a permanent bond for a card or page? Look no further than the 2-Way Glue Pen.
1. Wet bond (permanent bond): While the glue is still blue and wet, immediately make the bond. Use a wet bond when you apply glitter.
2. Dry bond (temporary): Apply glue lightly and wait for the adhesive to dry (it will become clear). Use this method when masking or positioning stencils. When you are finished, you can remove the bond easily.


To start the 2-Way Glue Pen, push the tip in a few times and allow the glue to saturate the tip (the tip will turn blue). Always replace the cap after use.

I have created a video (my first ever) to demonstrate the "Quick Tips" and "FYI."
