March 22, 2017 ANYTHING GOES


Envelope

This week over at The House that Stamps Built the challenge is ANYTHING GOES.  This always seems to be a favorite among the design team as well as
favorite with out followers.  
This week I made a "modified" joy fold card using Moon Angel 716-G and friend from the Hello Series 9900.  I colored her with prisma colored pencils and blended with OMS - then did some gold splattering around her.  

On the inside of my card I used You are an Angel 2522-G. and Random Stars 3417-C

Since this was an odd size card I made an envelope to size and on the outside of the envie I stamped Random Stars 3417-C

 Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the theme of Anything Goes over at The House that Stamps Built challenge

March 17, 2017 Dragonfly card



My friend Sally - who is also a SU demonstrator has started a Cup and a Card at one of our local coffee houses here in town.  We meet every other Tuesday, buy a coffee - and make a card for a nominal fee.  Fun, friendship, ideas, and good coffee.  This week we colored as SU has new coloring pages so Sally cut them up into 4 inch squares and away we went coloring.  I used SU inks and a blender pen.  But my favorite part is the dragon fly - love love love him and Sally had them all die cut for us.  Then some silver thread for accent - which I have trouble getting it to look right, but I don't think there is a right or wrong with this fine thread, it certainly has a mind of its own.  Isn't it pretty???

March 15, 2017 - Photo Inspiration



This week over at The House that Stamps Built we had our photo inspiration/color challenge - pictured above - well I went with photo - and when I saw this picture I saw CAT - so I choose The Cat's Out 1611K and the sentiment is The Cat's Out 2516G.  The first cat I ever had was a yellow strip tabby we named Morris  so I colored him like our Morris cat  Since I needed a birthday card I choose to use the sentiment that goes with this.  I paper pieced the paper bag after spritzing it a bit then crumbling it up so it looked like the cat had been playing for a while.  Morris loved paper grocery bags.  I had a cat charm/paperclip that worked well on this so I used it as well.  Hope you enjoy seeing my Morris cat. 


 Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the photo/color challenge inspiration  and enter it in The House that Stamps Built challenge

March 8, 2017 The House that Stamps Built





This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is the tic-tac-toe shown above.  I chose to go with vertical pets, texture and charms.  Pets is our youngest Buddy - half Rhodesian Ridgeback and half black lab, and talk about turning on the charm - he can certainly charm anyone for a pet under his chin.  A friend gave me this 8 x 8 card but I choose to work with it as a scrapbook page as we have a scrapbook for our DOGS.  On the front I used 8104I Happy Puppy colored him using  Buddy as my model - then used a frame (from some wonderful blog candy  I received a few weeks ago -thanks Laurie).  Tied a dog bone charm with white/black bakers twine and mounted him on some DP and a smaller solid color ran through an embossing folder with doggie paws.  On the inside I used Hello handsome a full plate 9900 with Hello and lots of sentiments to go with this.  On the back page I printed off a picture of Buddy on his favorite hammock with his cloth chuck-it.  It is really hard to photograph black dogs!!!

March 1, 2017 House of Cards Create a Scene

 This is the second post for today from Glittered Paws.

This month over at The House of Cards our theme was create a scene - so my vision was to create a "vintage photo" that had been found in an old box of  family photos.  I used a digi image by Mynn called Purr-fect friend and printed the image out in a sepia tone on ivory cardstock.  I "wadded" it up creating the wrinkles then took my distress tool and distressed the edges and used antique linen distress ink and again distressed the wrinkles.  Used a muted dot background - and made my card into an easel card using a heart with paw print charm for my backstop.  Hope you enjoy the little vintage scene I have created.

March 1, 2017 Designer Choice Long Tall Sally




Every month we have a Designer Choice challenge and this month it was Laurie who chose "Long Tall Sally".  It has been "years" literally since I have made a long tall card.  I had some longer envelopes in my stash so went with that to size my card.  As you can see I carried my theme over to my enevelope.   I loved using these stamps.  The large and small  butterfly worked perfect for this card and the sentiment in the middle finishes the feeling of the card.  Colored with copic markers, had some scrap DP in my basket that I used on both the left and right sides, - masked my butterflies and used some Lemon Whip and Papaya spritz for the splatter dots and then finished off with a variety of yellow/orange enamel dots.  

 Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the theme Long Tall Sally and enter it in The House that Stamps Built challenge

February 24, 2017 Best Grandma


I have a friend that is going to be a first time grandma to twin boy/girl.  When I have a friend that is a first time grandma I always get them a "Read to Me Grandma" book as a giftie.  
I have had this Lawn Fawn set for a while - and again never before used.  Oh mercy so many that need ink.  Well I thought this would make a cute grandma card with the little owls and it worked out pretty well.  I used some watercolor pencils for my coloring, sponged in some clouds and then started searching for a small grandma stamp. You know one of those things you know you have but don't remember where it is.  Well this was from The Angel Company years ago but it was exactly what I needed for the space. Popped up on a doily, some nature color bg DP,some pearls, and card done to go in with gift.
