Easter Eggs and Flowers

Hello!  I haven’t been slacking off.  I have been creating, but just can’t seem the find the time lately to take pictures and/or post!

I made these Easter Eggs for a table decoration at my in-laws.  They were super easy and pretty cute if I say so myself!  I used different designs of paper tape to cover the eggs and sealed it with Modge Podge.  Then made flowers with McGills botanical lily punch, copic markers and decorative top straight pins.

Hope you have a Happy Easter!

Fire truck birthday card

Hello!  I made a boy (or girl, if she likes fire trucks!) birthday card following this weeks Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge.

I used Stampin Up Good Neighbors stamp set for the houses, trees and sentiment.  The fire truck is a digital stamp from Waltzing Mouse that you can find in the Help for Katie donation set (see the side bar for info).  I colored the truck using Copics and hand cut the road.

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly sympathy card

Wow!  The holidays have kept me from my crafting – I am in withdrawal mode!  I finally found an excuse because my husband’s hairdresser’s father died and he needed a sympathy card to give her.  

I used the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge this week as my jumping off point.

I used Because I Care hostess set, Teeny Tiny Wishes, God’s Blessings, Butterfly punch, solid paper and inks from Stampin Up.  The Squares were cut using Spellbinders dies.  The paper is from The Best of Barb Walton.  After stamping the flower images in Concord Grape ink I colored them in with Copic markers.  After they were colored I inked the flowers with versamark ink and embossed the images with sparkle powder.  The butterfly was made by punching the image in Concord Grape and the patterned paper. Then I applied the versamark ink to the top layer of the butterfly and embossed again with the sparkle powder.  The doily is a Martha Stewart punch.

 

Great Big Hugs

It seems the majority of my family has birthdays the last half of the year.  So, another birthday card from me.  This one is for my 90-year-old Grandmother.  I decided to follow the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge this week.

The Kraft, yellow and red paper is from Recollections.  The inks are from Stampin Up.  I trimmed one edge of the top flap of the card with a scallop punch, then ran the red and yellow papers through the cuttlebug in the circles and swiss dot folders.  The yellow paper is overlayed with a sheer yellow ribbon for Two Spellbinder die #14 were used for the cut out.  They were stamped with the Waltzing Mouse coordinating stamp set then colored with Copics.  The oval was cut out of the second stamped image, then the sentiment and “underline” were stamped within it and popped up with dimentionals.  A little bit of bling finished off the front.  The inside is stamped and embossed with a sentiment as well.

Childs birthday card

My niece has her 7th birthday coming up in a few weeks.  I decided to use my new Waltzing Mouse stamp set on this card, as well as the Stamping 411 sketch for this weeks challenge.

I decided to use fun colors that reminded me of sweet things to eat.  The pattern papers are from DCWV’s Nana’s Kids.   As already mentioned, I used Waltzing Mouse Frame It stamp set and Copics to color.

Bountiful Basket

Both of my “little” sisters birthdays are this month, right after Thanksgiving.  I decided to use the Stamping 411 sketch this week as my template for my youngest sister’s card.

I used patterned paper and colored paper from K and i.  Ink and markers from Stampin Up and Copic.  Stamps from Waltzing Mouse and Inkadinkado.  Ribbon from JoAnn’s and the diecuts are Nesties.

Hope you like it.  I was very productive yesterday so I will be back with more soon.

Gift box and tag

The current Tuesday challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge  is to make elements used in gift wrapping. 

I pulled out my trusty Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cart for this challenge.  I found a box and used the window option.  I wanted a fun Christmas design on the outside, but the pattern paper I have isn’t thick.  So, I pulled out my colored card stock and cut the box twice: once in the red DCWV cardstock and once in the Cloud 9 pattern paper.  Then I adhered them together before scoring. 

Next, I colored and Stickled (I think I just made up a word) an Inkadinkado ornament stamp, which I then placed in the window of the box.  Using some festive ribbon and berries I made a topper for the card.

I also decided to make a tag.  I wanted to use the Peachy Keen frog stamp on the box, but the window wasn’t big enough so I used him on the tag instead.  Using my #14 Nestie labels and the patterned paper from the box, I cut out a medium-large size label.  Then I cut out a medium-small size cream-colored label to put in the center.  Next, I stamped my frog, colored him with my Copics and cut him out.  Using  my Joys of the Season Cricut cart, I cut out a hat for my frog to wear.  I using white embossing powder and Picket Fence Stickles for the white areas, and Xmas red for the trimmings, on the hat.  Finally, I attached the hat and popped up the frog.

I really like the way it turned out!

Wedding Card

Stamping 411 has a sketch challenge this week.

I used the wedding cake and garland from Stampin Up’s Blissful Bride stamp set.  As well as, the Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels #14 set that corresponds with the Spellbinders die cut set. 

First, I stamped the cake in Rich Razzleberry and colored the flowers with Copics.  Then, using the Spellbinders Labels #14, I cut out the cake and also cut out a solid colored piece in a larger size.  Next, using the Versamark champagne stamp pad, I inked the entire cake cut out and covered it in sparkle embossing powder (it’s hard to see in the photos, but very sparkly in person).  After that, using the Waltzing Mouse scroll border, I stamped over the embossing powder.  It gave a really interesting effect.  Finally, I adhered the cake cut out to the solid, larger cut out.

For the card, I cut an 8.5×11 piece of white card stock in half lengthwise, giving me a 4.25×5.5 card.  Next, I stamped the garland in Rich Razzleberry, four times on the card.  Since the garland doesn’t run the full length of the page, I had a slight overlap in the middle.  But since the shaped label was going to cover it, it was ok if they didn’t match perfectly. 🙂  Using my EK scallop border punch, I punched the bottom edge of the card.

Using dimentionals, I popped up the label a bit on the center of the card.  I attached the ribbon to the card before adhering the label, but tied it once the label was on.   The final touch was to color my gemstones with a Copic marker that was close in color to Rich Razzleberry.

I hope you like it.  It’s my first time entering the Stamp 411 challenge. 

I appreciate all your comments and feedback!
