June 12,2019 Tic-Tac-Toe


This week over at The House that House Built our challenge is Tic-Tac-Toe and this is one of my favorite challenges, so many possibilities but I went with the bottom row across, dog, pattern paper and twine, as seen below.



I needed to make a pet sympathy card - they had Princess for 13 years - so she was a beloved family member.  I just happened to have a die cut with "Princess" as a header and I used 8121-P Golden Retriever and their girl was a mixed breed but his looked very similar to her.   It is so hard to say goodbye to a beloved family member that loves
unconditionally.


On the inside I used 4015-G Loss of your pet and 8118-C Dog Bone.

June 8, 2019 Graduation, wedding and birthday cards

Dear daughter called and asked Mom for 4 cards that she needed she said there was just something special about handmade cards vs. store bought. 
I did a graduation card for both male and female, love the female -totally cased from Pinterest.  The birthday card was made with the new SU All Geared Up set that my friend Cheryl let me borrow.  This card is for dear grand daughters boy friend Noah.  He just got a car so daughter is going to put a gas card in with it so he can buy gas.  The wedding card is for another friend of daughters son that is getting married.  I love this layout - especially the die cut Mr. and Mrs. 
She was very excited when she got them in the mail this past week. 

Off now to make a couple of Fathers Day Cards.

June 6, 2019 - Anything with Wings


Wasn't it just May - it sure did go by quickly.  So now the start of another new month - June - and we have a couple of surprises.  This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our newest (well really old) Rock Star is Patti Gilliam.  She was a Rock Star a couple of years back and has now joined us again.).  I'm sure you will enjoy seeing her work again.  
Form entry with the challenge of Anything with Wings I used the image
1704-P Great Blue Heron.  I colored the main image with colored pencils.  I have a die cut image of just waves, so I put the Heron standing in the water.  You can see his legs peeking through the open waves.  I then stenciled in some clouds,and for my sentiment I used 9717-C Happy Hello.  I think this will be a very nice masculine card.  Maybe a=even a Happy Fathers Day card.

June 3,2019 Project of the Week

This week over at The House that Stamps Built  it is my turn to show you the project of the week.  Just seems like we were wishing the snow would end, and now it is June. 

For my project- embossing on mulberry paper, I used Hello from plate 9900 and
Baby Owl 2613-H .   The Hello plate has multiple stamps that you can mix and match and is such a bargain for you to purchase the entire plate. 

For my supplies I gathered my Versa-Mark Ink pad, gold embossing powder, stamps, embossing folder, water, and mulberry paper.  I have had my mulberry paper for quite some time - ok a really long time - and keep waiting for it to be popular again in stamping.  One of the techniques I enjoyed was embossing on the mulberry paper. 


I stamped the Baby Owl and the hello on two individual pieces of mulberry paper, and sprinkled gold embossing powder on each.  Make sure all the strays are gone, then "carefully" heat set your embossing powder - DO NOT overheat or it will be a disappointment - ask me how I know. 

Here is the image heat set on the white mulberry paper.  After image cooled - I sprayed with water around the image and carefully tore the edge letting some of the woven strings stay.  It will tear very easily when slightly moistened. 

I used brown cardstock and ran it through a Sizzix embossing wood grain folder to use for mounting my images on.  I attache the woodgrain piece on a piece of light kraft cardstock.  To apply the embossed images I used liquid glue and carefully dotted glue behind the embossing on both the hello and the baby owl, so the ink dries clear and can't be seen. 

Finished card - I think this will go out in the mail this week to my senior buddy in Canada.  He is a "bird watcher" so I think he will enjoy this card.
I bet most of us have all the supplies in our stash so get our the mulberry paper and give this a try.

May 29, 2019 Sketch Challenge


This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is sketch challenge and here is our sketch:


I really enjoyed the sketch this week - and I did flip it to be a horizontal card.
I am a dog lover - and just so happens that my new chemo buddy loves dogs as well so I thought this might bring a smile.  Anyone who has had a "puppy" knows they like to be mischievous and this guy is certainly getting his chew in.  I used 4201-K Playtime Puppy  colored with copic markers and then I went in with a "hard" lead pencil and added some fur detail.  You can see this if you zoom in.  Used some doggie print dp and some strips that matched to make the sketch.  In the corners I used a die cut of puppies and put one in each corner.  I die cut FUN as I know this pup is surely having fun.

Next week we will have a "new" Rock Star rejoining us on our team - so looking forward to sharing her creations with us.  So keep an eye open for her. 

Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the sketch challenge photo .   So many possibilities on this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps you will have two chances to win a $25 gift certificate towards stamps. ow it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of   -  and  as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.

May 22, 2019 Anything Goes




This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Anything Goes - so that leaves it wide one to not only the Rock Stars but for those of you who enter the challenge. 

Sometimes I go through my "past" creations that I keep in a basket  - and I found this idea.  Remember when distressing the edge was so popular - I used a pair of scissors to distress the edge (if you zoom in you can see the distressing) but they also have edge distress tools.  I used
10301-H Patti's Flower Solid  and stamped it in a hot pink ink - it stamped so beautifully.  I then fussy cut three flowers and place then on my top distressed designer paper.  For my sentiment I used 1105-E Thinking of You as Iam always needing just general Thinking of you or just because type cards.  I die cut the sentiment out using an oval die and then used two small hearts bling on each side. 



 Now it is your turn to make a card or project using Anything Goes.

May 18, 2018 Kindergarten Graduation

I can't believe that my oldest great grand daughter will graduate from kindergarten in just  a few days. 
This little girl is from Pixie Dust Studio (digi) and I colored her in the school colors, royal blue and silver.  Will put a little bit of green ($$) on the inside for her.
