February Calendar

Supplies: Stamps: Savvy Paper: red and white cardstock  Ink: Versamark  Accessories: detail white embossing powder, SU border punch, gingham ribbon, computer generated calendar, Martha Stewart scallop heart punch, solid heart created and cut out on Silhouette Cameo, self adhesive gems, SU embossing folder, red DMC floss
 

Hi!  These calendars are so fun to make.  When I sat down to make the February calendar, I used this card as inspiration. I thought it would be easy, peasy!  Ha!  It was difficult finding the scallop heart in such a tiny size.  I ended up using a scallop Martha Stewart heart punch, but then I had to create a heart cut out for the solid heart!  An hour later...I had my hearts figured out.  After that things fell into place.  Thank you for stopping by!

Celebrate With Cake and Ice Cream!

Supplies: Stamps: Big Day Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versamark Paper: Papercut whip cream, raspberry, Basic Grey 6x6 kneehigh  Accessories: Zingo vanilla embossing powder, Lawn Fawn scalloped stitched border die cuts, twine, MFT banner die cut, Cranberry colored pencil, Gamosol
 
Hi!  Does this look familiar??  I used the same layout as my last card, except this time I used the banner die cut for my focal image.  I also colored in part of the sentiment with colored pencils and gamosol to highlight a couple of words in the focal image.  I made this card for the Paper Players challenge, to make your sentiment the focal image.  This stamp set is so fun to arrange different sentiments, so I decided to use it again.  Thank you for stopping by!

Celebrate with Cake!

Supplies: Stamps: Big Day  Ink: SU white craft ink Paper: 6x6 Basic Grey Kneehigh, black cardstock, light blue cardstock  Accessories: SU chalk talk die cuts, Lawn Fawn stitched scallop die cuts, bakers twine, multi matte medium
 
Hi!  The CAS challenge on SCS was to use the sentiment as your focal image.  I thought this sentiment worked well with the chalk talk tag.  The trick was figuring out how to stamp it to show up nicely on black cardstock.  I ended up using SU white craft ink and then heat embossing it with detail clear embossing powder.  I added some layers, and fancied up the bakers twine using the multi matte medium.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day

Supplies: Stamps: Whipper Snapper Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K layering and base weight white cardstock  Accessories: Hot Off The Press embossing folder, Doodlebug twine, circle nestabilities, copic markers, crystal effects, wink of stella marker clear
 
Hi!  Thought I would get a jump start on a Valentine card.  I made this with inspiration from the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  I cut out the partial circle, embossed the focal panel, added some twine, and adhered it to the card base.  Then I used my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped the heart bee.  I colored the image with copic markers, added wink of stella to the wings and heart.  Then I added crystal effects to the heart as well.  I wanted a little sentiment to fit in the cut out circle, but I couldn't find one that was just right!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy New Year!


Supplies: Stamps: Stampin Up Gift Givers Paper: SU silver glitter paper, white cardstock  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Accessories: copic markers, liquid applique, heat gun, computer generated calendar, Lawn Fawn stitched die cuts
 
Hello All!  I hope everyone had a delightful holiday season and are ready to tackle the New Year.  I was cruising through my blog and noticing how little I posted last year.  Yikes!  And I found these little calendars I used to make.  I was up for a project last night, and went for it.  I have always thought the little girl in this stamp set was just adorable.  So I stamped, colored, and cut her out.  Then I got out the snow scene die cuts and started to arrange them to create a snowy scene.  After that I added some liquid applique to her hat and to create some snow.  I computer generated a calendar, and added it to the glitter paper.  I have to say the sparkle in Stampin Up's glitter paper is so wonderful.  I have bought other glitter papers, but this one just seems to shine and sparkle more. 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Minecraft Birthday!


Supplies: Paper: crumb cake, old olive, black, white, grey, dark grey, brown  Accessories: score board, 3/4 inch square punch, Silhouette: 1/16 inch squares for sword
 
My nephew is turning 10! today on Halloween.  I cannot believe it, he has grown up way too fast!  We got him Minecraft toys for his birthday, so I thought this would compliment the gift we got him.  I honestly don't know a whole lot about Minecraft, but thank goodness for Pinterest!  I found this card to copy!  Thank you for the inspiration.  Then, I saw the sword, and thought how cool is that?!  I cut out a bunch of the little squares on my Silhouette and went to town putting together this sword.  After I was done, I wished I had made it the focal image, but it is a fun surprise as you open this z-fold card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween!

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn and Craft Lounge  Ink: Color Box whisper grey Memento tuxedo black  Paper: black, grey, and white  Accessories: wink of stella clear, copic markers, dimensionals
How cute is that spider and web??  Oh Lawn Fawn, how I love thee!  This card is another card that I found on Pinterest, this is pretty much a copy, of this card.  Thank you Amy from Prairie Paper and Ink for the inspiration!  I didn't have the exact brand of stamps, but I found some that worked well.  I used a spider web from Craft Lounge to stamp the webs in the background, and then I stamped the web and spider, colored, and cut it out.  I adhered it with dimensionals.  I loved how Amy added grey along the lines of the spider web, it added dimension to the web that is just perfect.  I also went over the grey and the spider with my wink of stella clear marker.  Thanks for stopping by!
