Project Time…

Number 2

Hello Friends,

 Hope your having a great day!

This is my second post today so please scroll down if your looking for Just Us Girls!

Over at Stamp TV they have a Guest Designer search and this time they are

asking us to…

 Make anything BUT a regular, flat greeting card. 

It can be a unique card: like a pop up card, a gift card holder,

a tent topper, or it can be an altered item!

I chose to make a gift basket using one of my all time

favorite Gina K design sets called Hugs and Prayers

(It’s retired by the way…sorry)

and combined it with GKD sentiment from A Little Something stamp set.

I came across this great basket using nestabilities from the talented

Debbie Olson.  Of course mine doesn’t look half as good as hers

and I used a different nesty shape then the one she has pictured.

Then, I realized after I had adhered my panels that I forgot to add

the ribbon underneath.  Next time!

I also wanted to make my own 3-d flower using a Stampin Up flower blossom punch.

I watched this video here!

I have a few more photos for you so that you can see the process

along with different views.

I leaned it back a little for better lighting!IMG_0018

I have linked up Debbie Olson’s blog for you above so that you may see a real work

of ART.  The only dimensions that I changed was for my handle.

 My handle is 3/4 wide by 12 inches long.

The paper is from Stampin UP.

I used one of my favorite stems from My Favorite Things.

Used lots of dimensionals too!

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope you

have a wonderful day…thanks for stopping by!

The weather is gorgeous here…going to head outside.

Coloring with Chalk

It’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday !

 Our “Toppings” option this time is

 “Coloring”

It can be with any type of coloring Medium you want to use:

markers, chalk, colored pencils, paint, and more!

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If your not a toppings kinda person, well…..you can just

stick with our usual “Anything Goes”Birthday!

 The choice is yours!

I thought it was way past time for me to get out my colored chalk!

IMG_0001

The flowers are Stampin Up- Flower Shop and the sentiment is from Verve- Take Note.

I used a q-tip to do my coloring.  The dark paper looks blue, but is actually purple.

The scrap DP I have had for about 10 years, I throw no scraps away..LOL

so I am not sure who’s it is….sorry! :/

I put some stickles on the centers of the flowers, but should have left

well enough alone!

Please come on over to Seize the Birthday and join us, and while your there

help me welcome our 3 new design team members!

Sharyn, Janet and Susie!

I have all their blogs all linked up for you!

CAS(E) Sketch #46

I have been eyeing this sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch for days!

This cute little turtle has been staring at me for over 4 months on

my desk…already colored mind you!  He has been saying,

“What are you waiting for lady?”

The coloring isn’t my best that is for sure, and I

have no idea which pens I would use to fix him…because it’s been so long!

So….as is he stays!!

Not sure if you can tell by the photo, but I used my spellbinders and cut

out the shape in the front of the card stock and then adhered the image on the

inside of the card.  Then decided it was to plain so I added some stars!

The image is from Bugaboo stamps!

I used my spectrum Noir Pens to color him!

Have a wonderful day!

Hello Friends,

I have been eyeing this Verve Challenge

DivaDareNoFrame150_LOGO

This is what the challenge is all about…..

So what we’re daring you to create this month is a card

or project using inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board. 

For example:  x’s and o’s, hugs & kisses, squares, circles, grids, you get the idea.    

The challenge doesn’t end till the 25th 

so there is still time to play along!

If you don’t have any Verve Stamps….I HIGHLY recommend them

they have so many to choose from and the quality is

some of the best I have found!

I have the challenge and the store all linked up for you!

Here are some of my card details!

Cardstock: SU and Black-Scraps

Stamps: Verve-You and I

Tools: Cuttlebug, Cricut, MS border punch,

MFT- Button die cut, 

SU-Sanding block and distresser

Acc: Hemp, doily and brads

Happy creating,

Who doesn’t love Sunflowers?

Happy Monday….LOL!

Today I am thrilled to share with you a card I was dabbling with on and off

all weekend.  Yes, it took me most of the weekend to finally get it to come

together the way I had envisioned.  LOL

The creative process began when I saw this week’s Dynamic Duos colors along with

a gorgeous Inspiration Photo….over at Curtain Call (I love sunflowers )…and

this week’s Muse card over at Case Study.

Let me show you the card and then…. “I have some explaining to do!”

( read that in a Ricky Ricardo voice from Lucy) LOL

Sunflowers

SF3

When it comes to the Dynamic Duos…I sure hope it’s okay that I added brown in my card…

I noticed some of the Design Team had done the same. (Fingers crossed)

For Curtain Call….I am right on target my card screams inspiration from the photo!

The only thing missing is some burlap!  Need some of that!

Last, but not least….for the Case Study Muse card….I used the obvious flower as my inspiration and the fence mimics the

vertical stripes that are in the sample…I realize mine aren’t bright and bold…but I hope it will suffice! 

Also, the vellum piece I replaced it with the 2 cross pieces on my fence.

Now, here are a few details of how I made my card!

The background woodgrain fence is a stamp from Stampabilites.

The sunflower is a stamp I have had for years that I got at a Garage sale….LOVE it!

I used my Spectrum Noir pens to color my flowers and then fussy cut them…don’t look to close!

Finally, that cool grass…is a die cut I got from Impression Obsession….Isn’t it the coolest!

Added the hemp and some distressing and Wahla!

Thanks for sticking with me, this was a long post, I so appreciate it!!!

Have a fantastic day!

Fellow crafters,

Today over at Seize the Birthday we have listened to our faithful

participants and have added this to our challenge…..

It’s an Anything Goes Birthday type of challenge with a “Toppings “ Option!

Remember that a Topping is infact an “Option” and not a requirement!

Because not everyone always wants a cherry on top…now do they??

 So this week your “Toppings” option is

” Monochromatic.”  

If you decide to add a topping to your Birthday card/project it

should exude one particular color of your choice!

Remember you can always add neutrals to your design!

So, Is your Birthday challenge going to be with or without toppings?

It’s your choice!

Hope to see you there!

Here is a link to get you started!

Seize the Birthday!

And my wonderful Team mates!

We had 172 participants last time…I wonder if we can ” Top” that?

Bahhahahhahahah

I am also linking this up to our sister blog…Seize the Sketch

STS-#3_01

That’s where I started my layout for my card!  I think I may

have gotten a little carried away with my flowers.

Loved the Sketch though!

Nanc’

Card details…

All ink, stamps and cardstock is Stampin up!

Tools: Cuttlebug ,embossing folder and border punch

Acc: pop dots and candy dots

Happy Weekend Friends!

It’s sketch time over at Just Us Girls and the talented

Vicki it our hostess this week.  After she posted the sketch she said,

she kept the sketch rather simple this time so we could let our creativity go!

Sometimes that is the best way to create don’t you think?

Start small and add to it!  Thanks Vicki!!!

 For my card today….. I want to give credit where credit is do.

My idea for my card came from the wonderful world of Pinterest.

Here is the lovely card that got my engine started,

along with her blog!  Her name is Lee and she is very, very talented!!!

Thanks Lee for the inspiration!!!
