Hey Therm O Web fans, Mandy Koeppen here today to share 3 simple, fun, and different cards created with the Fancy Pants Be Different collection.



When we were first told we’d be working with Fancy Pants I was really excited and hoping to work with Be Different not only does this collection have awesome colors,fabulous patterns but the name of the collection and the meaning behind it. Be different… shall we? Let’s try with these 3 cards.

Here is a look at the supplies I started with by the end of this post you’ll see I still have lots leftover so be sure to stop by my blog later this week for a few more projects created with Be Different and Therm O Web.

This photo shows my “piles” after I’ve got a direction figured out and flipped through the product I start making piles for my projects or clusters you could call them of which things I like together. Here you see the start of my cards. This isn’t too different from the way I put my layouts together except there is more pushing things around to make the design work the way I want usually.

Party card by. Mandy Koeppen 


To be honest I think I forgot the camera, I was on a roll creating and didn’t realize it until I was uploading projects. oops. This one is really simple though.

Start with a 4×3 Fancy Pants Brag Card to build on then you’ll adhere all the everything to a base last.

Using 3D Squares adhere Ephemera to the brag card.

Using ZOTS™ attach a ticket from the Fancy Pants ticket roll.

Adhere a layered star under the monster using Sticky Dot Mini Runner™. For more dimension use a 3D Square to pop the middle up.

Now you are ready to adhere to a base. For this card the base is a Fancy Pants Envelope. Simply adhere your embellished brag card to the envelope with Sticky Dot Mini Runner™.

Simple, fun, and different.
