Oh snap!

Hi stampers!  Oh snap, it's Friday!  Ok, so I don't really use this sentiment much (if at all) but I still think it's cute!  I have heard some of my kiddos at the school (my old job) say it though and it pretty much means "no way" or "sweet/cool" or they say it when someone "burns" someone :-)  I think the only other time I've heard it is in the movie Freaky Friday, the one with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan BEFORE she went kind of nuts (which is too bad because I always liked her and thought she was really pretty).  That's one of those movies I can watch over and over and have on in the background when I'm doing stuff.  I have a number of those and it drives my DH nuts as he doesn't like to watch things more than once.  Anyone else like me?

Anyway, I came up with this super simple card the other day using the hip notes set from the new occasions mini.  I love the cute little sayings in this set plus the fun fonts!  I'm a sucker for the fonts!!!!

So while the saying may not have a ton of uses it pairs up super well with the peachy keen set since it has a camera and with the on film framelits as they do too.  Now, it's important to note (and it's not readily evident in the catalog) that the camera stamp and the die don't match up.  Now, while that's not ideal, I just used the die on it's own. Since it embosses while it cuts it's cute all on it's own.  To make the embossing stand out just a bit more I sponged the edges and ran my sponge lightly over the whole thing for a bit of contrast.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Hip notes
Paper:  Whisper white, sahara sand, crisp cantaloupe, coastal cabana
Ink:  Crisp cantaloupe, coastal cabana
Accessories:  On film framelits, chevron border punch, basic rhinestones

You could totally make this one mailable without the rhinestone too but I wanted something a little glitzy and I thought it looked like the camera lens.  One more tip is to use some wax paper in the filmstrip die.  Just place it over the paper then place the die.  I forgot to do this the first time around and basically destroyed the cutout when trying to pry it out, duh!  A little wax paper and it just pops out!

Happy stamping!


  1. love the card Mindy! I too have several movies I can watch over and over and never get tired of them. My hubby isn't thrilled with it either, but he gets over it :) I noticed that the camera stamp and framelit don't completely match up... wondered if it was just me not lining it up well enough so thanks for clearing that up for me!

  2. On snap! I love this card and now I will have to get Hip Notes. Love the camera frame lit and your idea of sponging it.
