August 27, 2013 Movie Ants

DoodlePantry Digi Popcorn Ants. DoodlePantry digi paper, popcorn Sizzix die, liquid applique, bakers twine, Distress ink - scattered straw, Wink of Stella Pink glitter pen,  and of course POPCORN

Love how this turned out - just found out that one of my chemo buddies (child) is on house isolation as her blood counts are down a bit and she is prone to infection.  So...I have a little package ready to mail to her with a movie and the bag of microwave popcorn.  I used Doodle Pantry Movie Ants Color Plus  which comes with digi paper to match, as well as sentiments.  Made a microwave popcorn "sleeve" to wrap around the "movie butter" microwave popcorn!!! Spent the day with a friend on Thursday "creating" and she has a Sizzix die with a popcorn box and the popcorn so I cut out some popcorn to bring home as I already had this in my mind.  A little liquid applique and a heat gun and it looks like real popcorn.  Hope the movie will help her pass some time at home.

August 25, 2013 Hambo Pig Birthday Card

Flying Pig from Hambo Digi, Basic Grey DP, Bazzill cs, colored with copic markers, Wink of Stella glitter brush for floer centers, bakers twine and button from my stash

My chemo buddy has a birthday coming up this week and she likes and collects stuffed pigs.  I found a really cute pig a while back at Barnes and Noble book store of all places and a calendar with pigs so I knew what I was sending her for her special day.  Next I needed a card, - I have seen this Hambo pig used several times on different blogs and I fell in love with it.  Colored him up with copics and just played around a bit with the placement and layout.  I hope she enjoys her card as much as I enjoyed making it for her.

August 18, 2013 Eat Cake

Amuse Studio stamps Eat Cake and Hey Cupcake, Amuse cherry polka dot cs, copic markers, Amuse blind, Memento dye Inks, stamp positioner

This technique was one of the new ones in Technique junkie for August/September 2013.  I usually like to try out at least one if not more of the new techniques and this one was really fun to do and really makes a wow statement.  You HAVE to have a stamp positioner and even with that my stamping may be just a wee bit off.  Colored the cupcake with copics, paper pieced the muffin cup and cherry and oh the bling well that was added to cover up an "oops"!  Give this a try and I think you will be happy with the results.

August 14, 2013 Water Otter

Doodle Pantry Digi Water Otter, Doodle pantry DP, Amuse bakers twin, button from stash, Kraft cs, wave punch

How often do you see just what you are looking for???  Well this month there was a special request from a chemo buddy that liked otters and I knew Laurie had released this cute little fellow this month and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.  The inside has the sentiment also from Doodle put a couple rows of waves, highlighted them with my Wink of Stella clear pen (love this new item).  I tried several white pens and none of them would work so they are no longer taking up precious space!!.  The Wink of Stella pen also comes in white but our LSS was out so next time I go that is on my must have list.  Love the modified gate fold card - it is a 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 piece of cs scored at 2 3/4 in. and 7 in. and the DP measures 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 and the other side is 1 1/4 by 5 1/4.  Easy peasy and love the look, this is the second card I have done this way this month.  Found this is Summer 2013 CardMaker magazine, so many fun ideas.  This is in the mail and hoping it will bring some smiles .  entered in

August 7, 2013 Sunny Side of Life

AMuse Sunny Side of Life stamps, white cs, black cs, asst colored cs, Tim Holtz distress inks, lg. spone dauber.

This turned out so pretty - my friend Patti came over the other morning just to play and have a cup of coffee and we started playing with sponging on some color and then I thought of this stamp set and WOW what amazing results.  I needed a sympathy card so this is the card I sent - I am saving the other one for probably a Thinking of You card.  Just a little bit of ink, sponges, and black Versafine ink - doesn't get much easier than this.

HotRod Pickup Digi image from Doodle Pantry, DP from BasicGrey - Tim Holtz collection, Antique Linen Distress Ink, photo turn from my stash as well as Bakers Twin

Love this HotRod Pickup from Doodle Pantry for masculine cards and there is even a pink one for the ladies that love pickups.  I paper pieced the truck and then colored in the tires, lights etc. then followed a sketch on OWH challenge which I really liked.  Hope you all enjoy this "manly" card as much as I enjoyed making it.
