Laugh ....

   

This card is a for a sketch challenge at the Outlawz.
Using a little banner stamp, I stamped multiple flags in Peeled Paint, Broken China and Wilted Violet then fussy cut them all.
From black cs I cut the oval with a die then ran stitching around the outer edge with a pink glitter gel pen and then ran the whole piece through my cuttlebug with a swiss dot folder (that folder has been getting a lot of play this week)
On white cs, I stamped the sentiment in white embossing powder and let dry.  I then dragged it through Wilted Violet and Broken China Oxide Inks and then wiped off the color from the white embossed areas.
I glued down the twine and then added the little flags with dimensional squares to lift them up and over the twine.
I added the blue double loop ribbon to the bottom with various paper flowers to match everything going on.




I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may:
Crafty Calendar:  Anything Goes
Glitter and Sparkle: Anything Goes
Dragon Fly Dreams: Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations: Use Flowers

Butterflies




    This card was created using a sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.
I smooshed both Distressed Inks and Oxide Inks onto white CS.  So many colors: I believe there's Orange Marmalade, Broken China, Wilted Violet and Peeled Paint in there in one form or the other.  I then stamped the butterfly from Inkadinkadoo with Wilted Violet Oxide on top of the smoosh and then dropped Iridescent Stickles in various spots of her body and wings.
Mounted that on to teal cs and ran faux stitching with a gold gel pen.  I cut the tag to fulfill the sketch and stamped the sentiment "Heartful Thanks" ... also from Inkadinkado ... in silver embossing powder and tucked that under the main piece.
All of this .... mounted onto blue cs.
Voila !

RWB Tree







   I worked a sketch challenge for this challenge from CAS this Sketch.  The blocks for the sketch are cut from two shades of red that were left over from my butterfly.
The tree is cut from navy blue cs and a die by Penny Black ... so much detail and always a clean cut.  I used a white gel pen for the heart.
All of that adhered to white card stock where I smudged the edges with Chipped Sapphire distressed ink.
I anchored it onto a navy top fold cs base.

Mono Butterfly


   


         This card was created using a combo of challenges.
The first one would be Casual Friday's Tic Tac Toe ... going down the left side with butterflies, monochromatic and shaker.  The next challenge would be the Butterfly Challenge with 'K is for key and or the color vermilion'.  
So there you have it.
             I started with cutting the butterfly on my cricut using the Art Nouveau cartridge in a monotone of reds all stacked and secure. I had to cut a slightly larger solid in white to make it pop.
              I stamped the key with a stamp from Recollections in Fire Brick Red and then embossed with clear for the shine.
              To build the shake, I use left over red circles stacked and then added dimensional tape around the edges.  I backed the front with white dotted acetate and then filled the void with red and white sequins, stars and gems.
            A bit of faux stitching in white around the edges all on the vermilion top fold card base.   Fun Fun Fun !!!



I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may please:

A day at the beach ....

 



  This card is for the summer using those beachy blues.    I started with the sentiment on white cs and stamped the bars of colors using distressed inks in Blue Print Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China.  I then flicked Chipped Sapphire and white randomly on top of it all.
I ran pale blue cs through my CuttleBug with a  rectangle die and then again with a random block embossing folder.
The paper on the edge is from Recollections.  I adhered everything on to lite blue top fold cs base and added sequins to the top corner.

I used markers to color the image and used glossy accents on the helmet to give it some texture and a realistic look
            I stamped random stars with white embossing powder and the one side of the card.  Using red cs, I used a MS edge punch and ran faux stitching with a white gel pen along the other edge.  I adhered this all onto the same color top fold cs base and added dots in the corner topped with glossy accents.

Smiles .....


         


    This is my design team project for BROWN SUGAR CHALLENGE and this week it's Anything Goes ... and I think you should check out the fun ... seriously ... go check it out!



         For this project I used a great paper pad by DCWV called Violet Leaf that my daughter gave me ... I just love all the gilded gold and color combos in it.  I really do.   The entire background piece is from that pad.  Also, the tag with the sentiment comes from that pad.  I just used an Inkadinkado Stamp for the sentiment in StazOn black and clear embossing powder for shine.

          The stamp is from Bugaloo Stamps which I used colored pencils.  I gave her sunglasses and coated the lens with Glossy Accents.  I used Stickles on her collar for a bit of bling there too - then I popped a flower on top of the flower.
I adhered the tag with dimensional squares to give it a bit of lift and popped a color coordinated flower on as well ... added the graphic and the acrylic dots all on a teal green top fold base.

Isn't she cute???

I took another picture on a tilt so you can see all shiny stuff and that gilded gold.  I really love that pad.

Thanks for popping by .... I hope you head to Brown Sugar to take a look at this week's challenge.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges if I may .....

boy shower




    Seems to be baby season on multiple levels ...

This is my design team card for Try Stamping (on not) on Tuesday and the theme is simple and neat.

For this card I started with white cs and stamped the shower using a Hampton Arts baby set and using Tim Holtz Oxide Ink in Broken China and used clear embossing powder over it to shine it up.
        I added a side panel paper of baby steps blue on blue from Mambi.  The bottom panel from Kaisercraft papers.  The little onesie was cut from white cs using the Cricut Sampler cartridge.  I hand hand edged the faux stitching with a blue marker and then ran it through my Cuttlebug using a swiss dot folder.  I adhered them all together adding the lace edging to divide and used dimensional squares on the  onesie to give it height all on a baby blue cs side fold base.



I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may:
Double D = Pastels
Fan n Funky =  Little Boys

Be Happy ...


This is my design team card for Try Stamping (or Not) on Tuesday.  The theme is summer splendor and the sketch is down below.

                  I started with a small piece of card stock and smudged Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Wilted Violet and Peeled Paint.  Once that was dry I stamped the sentiment with black StazOn.   Cut that down to match the sketch. 

                 Using pink, purple and teal card stock I formed the sketch.  I ran the pink flag through the cuttlebug with a swiss dot folder.
                       I cut a piece of designer paper from Recollections in orange and white for the background and adhered the entire piece with dimensional tape onto a darker pink cs top fold base.
                   A few violet sequins bling here and there to give it a bit of shine.

BaDaBing.

Here is the sketch for the week.











Good golly it's good to be back having fun.

Thinking

     



             A very simple CAS card.  I love this technique ... I masked off the bottom sections and  I used a fiskers stamp ( Petals from Scratch) and repeated it all around.   I used a white crayon to color in the petals.  I then smudged peeled paint, broken china and marmalade onto the stamped area.  Rub over the crayon to remove any color that may have covered the petals.  I used a Hampton Arts rubber stamp with gold embossing powder and then I used a gold mylar edge sticker to divide the color with the cream.







I would love to add this card to the following challenges if I may:
CAS on Sunday = Repetitive Stamping.
Watercooler Wednesday - ATG
QKR Stampede Challenge - ATG
Simon Says - ATG
Outlawz - CAS Sunday.

Thank you again for stopping by.
Wishing you all a wonderful day !!!!

Adventures

   





 This card was a bit of an adventure .... I started with Kraft CS.  I cut the printed velum to go over the kraft.  Using the rustic printed paper, I cut that using a curved stitched die for the side panel.  I love the hinges that I used for this card- another die and I covered them in glossy accents.   The stamp is from Fiskars and I used Black StazOn right on the velum.


All of this adhered onto a cream top fold CS base.







I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may.
Addicted to Stamps = Clean and Simple
CASual Friday = use printed paper.  (side panel and velum)
Just Us Girls = Die Cuts

Pawsome

   





      I was working with a sketch for this card ... the sketch is from  the House that Stamps Built.
Using bone cs I stamped the puppy and used color pencils.  I cut the ovals with stacking dies.  The printed paper is from Recollections.  The stamp set is from Simon Says Stamps.  The brads are actually from an ordinary hole punch where I punched a bunch/stacked them/ glue them and then used Glossy Accents on top to dome them and give them shine.

Blending

When you're at work coloring images to catch up on some work with your work pencils ... Crayola Pencils ... because you don't want to leave your good pencils at work .... and you're using Vaseline to blend .... because it's easy to keep at work with absolutely no odors of any kind.  Your working away happy as a clam, almost finished ... changing pencils and all of a sudden you dip your pencil into the goooo and begin with circles and oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 
what is dis magic ????????? It's fluid and beautiful !!!!!!  
You roll your pencil around and see Prismacolor.    
Ya think ... DAMN, what a difference a pencil makes.
How did you get in this container?  You need to come home with me tonight and get with the rest of your friends. 


Back to piece ......... 
Digging into my bag for some stickles ...... there's a need for a bit of bling (always) ....

Getting it back together ........

Ever so slowly.
We've had some major construction going on in the house that had bedroom furniture stuffed into my craft room for a few weeks (at the mercy of the workers -- 2 weeks 2 weeks ... actually there is no meaning to the term 2 weeks).   All I could do is open the door ... entry is not an option - getting supplies not an option.

Then the flu ... 














It's been intense to say the least ... but I think I can actually see a ray of sunshine.
Hoping to get it all back together

Koi for you.





This is my team submission for this weeks challenge at Try Stampin' (or Not) on Tuesday.  The theme this week is to make an oval or round card.



For this card, I started with black card stock and I cut the two ovals using a large oval die.  I then cut two small rectangle pieces to make a hinge on the top (inside).

I cut the Koi using multiple pieces of cs (pink, salmon, black and yellow) with my cricut using the Art Nouveau cartridge.

The sentiment was stamped with a Hampton Arts rubber set using hot pink embossing powder.
I ran faux stitching around the edge with a hot pink gel pen.

The inside of the card I cut 2 ovals in the next size down in the die set to glue over the exposed hinges and for writing.
To my surprise, this card fits perfectly into an A2 envelope.




Thank you for stopping by.  I'm still on vacation, but I had these all ready to go for you.

Wishing you a fantastic day and thank you for stopping by!  Feel free to comment  - I would love to hear from you.

The stamped clouds are from a stamp set from Neat and Tangled and I stamped them with Spiced Marmalade and  Scattered Straw and fussy cut them from the white cs and used dimensional squares to pop one over the other.

4 cowboy ....

 

   This is a birthday card for a sweet boy and yes, he's turning 4.
I started out with a stamp image by Bugaboo Stamps using colored pencils to finish off the image.
I cut the frame on tan cs using nesting rectangles and then used walnut stain and vintage photo inks to smudge it.
The number 4 was cut with my Cricut using the Plantin School cartridge.
The designer paper was found in my scrap box and I don't remember who it is by and was set on the tan cs.
This was all set onto Kraft cs that I ran through my Cuttlebug using a woodgrain folder.
Brown and tan twine to hold it all together all on a top fold Kraft cs base.

L is for Ladybug

 


     This card has inspiration from a few challenges.
I started with a piece of black card stock and I stamped ladybugs with a set from Inkadinkado. I cut a piece of ladybug designer paper from Recollections and got that ready to go.
Grabbing a black base card I put the first piece of black and white washi tape alone the bottom.  Then the ladybug paper.  Then the lady bug stamps and topped that with a piece of red card stock cut as a flag that was stamped with the same white embossing paper with a Tim Holtz stamp.

Negative fly

            This is the negative left over from the dragonfly cut in the card before.   I grabbed a piece of white cs and sponged Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet and glued that behind the cut negative.
           I trimmed it up a bit and ran faux stitches around with a gold gel pen.  I stamped the sentiment with a Hampton Arts stamp and gold embossing powder.
               I added the different color washi tape .

The smaller butterflies were cut with a punch from paint swatches in various shades of mint.
The larger dragonfly was cut with both mint green cs and black cs  with my cricut (Art Nouveau) and layered.
      The light grey base went through the cuttlebug with the same daisy folder and the green and I added the green washi tape across the top

Spring Window



 

    This card is centered around a stamp from Beccy's Place.   Great goods there !!   I used both colored pencils and markers on the image.  I thought the pencil worked best for the bricks.
I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning to put it all together.
I have black cs that I ran through my cuttlebug with a swirl embossing folder.  The sentiment tag on mint cs was stamped with black StazOn and the stamp is from Inkadinkado.  I used wide mint green washi tape down the side and set all the squares off sides for the sketch.  Final touch were some white paper flowers.

HAPPY ST. PAT'S DAY EVERYONE !!


               Using the color palette from The House That Stamps Built I worked up this card.  Starting with lite gray card stock, I cut the background with a Spellbinders PostageStamp Die. I cut a second one with a slightly darker shade of gray and trimmed it down and stamped the sentiment with a Hampton Arts Stamp, black StayzOn and clear embossing powder to shine it up.  I also edged the top hickory smoke ink.  I cut the flower out of different shades of gray and black cs and highlighted with a white gel pen.
All of this was adhered to a white top fold cs base and then some pearl gems added to the corner for some blingage.
