Dear Pom Poms, I heart You

Dear Pom Poms, I {heart} you.

Ok, admittedly, when I got this pom pom trim, I didn't know what to do with it. But determined to use some supplies that had been staring at me, I decided to give them a go. Love the way this card turned out and amazed that I only stamped the sentiment. (If you've been reading long, I don't often used patterned paper but rather stamp my own.)
This card may not go anywhere. I may just leave it on the bookshelf in my craft room for awhile. Even though it's little pleat and pom pom skirt makes it seem like its all dressed up with nowhere to go! LOL

I started with my February Studio Calico kit. The Crate paper (pink, avocado and floral paper) is so pretty and has a great, thick texture and feel to it. Love these colors, too. Started with a basic 4 x 5.25 mat of the floral paper and added a strip of its backside - the pink - across it. I attached that cute little pom pom along the bottom before adhering it to the mat. I made a pleated section of the avocado polka dot paper using Scor-Tape to hold it in place. Some brown grosgrain and a sentiment on foam tape and that was it. Took longer to make than explain here, but isn't that how it always goes? I was even *kinda* working off a sketch too.

Well, off to get some things done around here before Monday rolls around. Thanks for stopping by! :-)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Giga Guidelines
Ink: PTI Chai; SU! Chocolate Chip
Paper: PTI Kraft; Crate patterned paper (Bouquet, Fireflies)
Accessories: Maya Road pom pom fringe; PTI Dark Chocolate grosgrain
Other: corner rounder punch; foam tape

Mix n Match

Hope you've all had a great Saturday! I enjoyed getting to play around with some new stuff I got recently but hadn't had time to play with. Here's one of the cards I made this afternoon ...
The Melissa Frances papers are so fun ... they remind me of a beach house ... bright and a tad over-the-top for regular, non-beaching living. I did a little mixing and matching with PTI's two new $5 sets ... Fillable Frames #1 and Luck of the Irish. I stamped the frame from Luck of the Irish in Enchanted Evening once on scrap and then on white to achieve the right shade. You can see that I didn't stamp off on the sentiment from Fillable Frames #1. I layered the frame over a circle of DP and then added a hydrangea bloom that I colored with Copics and a snazzy pearl brad, which I have been hoarding forever. (Must stop hoarding.)

Lots of playing with patterned paper today ... I will be back tomorrow with my favorite card from this afternoon. See you then!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Luck of the Irish, Fillable Frames #1
Ink: PTI Enchanted Evening, Chai, Chamomile; Copic marker
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, White; Melissa Frances patterned paper
Accessories: PTI Hibiscus Burst satin ribbon; hydrangea bloom - Michaels; pearl brad - The Paper Studio
Other/Tools: 1-3/4" circle punch; apron lace border punch; foam tape

Perfect Pear

Hi! Sorry for the lack of posting this week. Been busy at work and its been a little crazy trying to get everything done. Today was a bit of a rough day ... with a meltdown to prove it. LOL But hopefully the rest of the week will fly by and I'll be so grateful for the weekend! :-)

I made this card a few weeks ago for a magazine call, but it didn't get picked up. Regardless, I love it and look forward to giving it to a happy couple at some point. Mostly all patterned paper here with a little stamping, cutting and punching.
Stamped the pears on cream paper and colored them with Copics. All the edges of the papers were inked with Chamomile and some stitched down. To make the rings, I punched them with two different sized punches and then added some glitter around the edges with a glitter pen. In hindsight, I'd use satin ribbon, but I didn't have any at the time. Otherwise, love it.

Well I am off to bed! Hope you've all been having a great week! :-)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Unity
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip; PTI Chamomile; Copics
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Spring Moss; Patterned Paper: PTI Bitty Box in Spring Moss; BoBunny Kitchen Spice Rosemary
Other: PTI Vintage Cream grosgrain; Sakura glitter pen; circle punches; sewing machine

Hey Friend

Hey Friend! Happy Friday!

This past week has been pretty busy, but I managed to squeeze in a quick card the other night. I really like these little 3.5 x 5 cards. Just a cute size for a quick note. I started with a scrap of white and stamped it with some pink polka dots. This new pigment ink is something I am still working on mastering, but the uneven coverage is awesome for vintage looks! LOL Anywho, I added some Chamomile ink around the edges and stamped the sentiment. I love this font combination from Practicing Creativity! Then it was some felt embellishments and that was it. Quick and easy!

That's about it for now! Hope you've all had a great week and have a fun and/or relaxing weekend ahead!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Polka Dots Basics I; Practicing Creativity - Key to My Heart

More Emboss Resist

Hello all! I can't believe its been a week since my last post! Had a busy weekend and this week has been wild too! I did want to show you one last Valentine before February is all said and done. I made this one while I was trying out the Emboss Resist technique during the PTI release party.I whipped up a small set of these easily and sold them to a friend. I hope her Valentine's enjoyed them! I stamped the heart in Versamark on white card stock and heat embossed with clear powder. Then I used Sweet Blush ink to add color around the images. They turned out pretty cute, I think!

Well, that's all for now. Back to watching the Olympics while I work on some projects. I have been totally into the curling so far! What about you?

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Heart Prints
Ink: Versamark; Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, Chamomile, Chai

Quick & Simple Valentines

Happy almost Friday! Going to be a long day today since we have open house tonight. Fortunately, now that teach closer to home, I won't have to stay at work between the last class and open house ... since a 14 hour day is no fun. At least tomorrow is Friday! :-)

I will be honest and say I should've started Valentine's day cards in like November (haha!), but I didn't and so I was running out of time in order to make cards for all the friends I wanted to acknowledge. So, I decided to keep it simple with some cute patterned paper. Here's my mass produced card ... This card is 3 x 5.25. A cute little size and that way I can get 12 pieces out of my one sheet of patterned paper! This cute paper is from Bo Bunny's "Love Bandit" line. Add a little brown mat and a stamped sentiment on foam tape, a bow and viola! Easy, cute cards to mail off.

The sentiment is from a cute set called Key to My Heart from Practicing Creativity. I talked about it here a few days ago. This time, I colored over my red stamped heart with a glue pen and glitzed it up. Just a little something to make this simple card seem a little more special. I love how these turned out and hope they bring a smile to some friends' faces over the next couple days!

Thanks for checking in! Have a great day! :-)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Practicing Creativity - Key to My Heart
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip; PTI Pure Poppy
Paper: PTI Kraft, Dark Chocolate, White; Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny "Love Bandit" line
Other: Glitter - Stampendous; ribbon - Wrights twill tape; foam tape

Key to My Heart

Hi yall! Back today with another card using Practicing Creativity's "Key to My Heart" set. I talked about this set in yesterday's post and mentioned the great argyle background building stamps in the set. Here's my first go at creating the argyle and I will definitely be going back to these stamps!I have been using this sketch a lot ... and you'll set it at least one more time later this week ... sorry! But its so easy and since I like making backgrounds its even easier! In the same way I made yesterday's card, I stamped the background, distressed it and layered it over a distressed red mat. The sentiment was made by stamping the key and then overstamping with the sentiment. Again with the distressing and adhering with foam tape. I added another dangling heart-shaped lock by stamped the lock, cutting it out and adding it to the bow with some twine. I really love how this turned out. :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Practicing Creativity - Key to My Heart

i heart you

Hey y'all! Busy week so far at my real job ... lots of meetings, an open house on Thursday, etc. So I haven't had time to make a whole lot in the past few days. But I did get a chance to play with a set of stamps from a new company called Practicing Creativity. This set is Courtney's first set and its called "Key to My Heart" and is a great value at only $12.99 for the set. I love the little keys and the argyle background builder (which I will show later this week)!

Here's one of the cards that I made using the "i (heart) u" sentiment. The heart is a separate stamp, so it was really easy to make this patterned background. I did use two different size hearts as well ... love these heart shapes! So fun.
Once I made my paper, I trimmed it, distressed it and mounted it on a piece of distressed red card stock. The key image was stamped on a scrap and then overstamped with the "i heart you" sentiment. I distressed the edges and added this on foam tape for dimension. I also stamped the heart-shaped lock and hung it from the sentiment with twine before attaching the sentiment to the card. I love how the heart lock dangles on the card.

What do you think of this new set? I think I will certainly be using it again and again ... and for more than just Valentine's day cards. Courtney, the owner of Practicing Creativity, also just released a new set called "You're Dandy," which looks really fun too!

Thanks for visiting today! I will be sharing more Valentines (and more Practicing Creativity cards) later this week! See you then!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Practicing Creativity "Key to My Heart"
Ink: PTI Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, Chai, Chamomile
Paper: PTI Kraft, Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream
Other: twine, foam tape

Emboss Resist

Hiya! Back again to post a challenge card from PTI's anniversary celebration. Nichole showed us how to do the emboss resist technique and since I had never tried this before, I thought "I have got to try that!" :-)

Ok, let me say that I started off with a Valentine's day project and it didn't go so well. I learned that the new pigment ink works way better for sponging around the embossed images than the "old" ink style. So, after I made that revelation, I only had a few colors to choose in the new ink style. So, here's what I came up with (please excuse the terrible photo as its been raining buckets all day!) ... I stamped a medallion image from the Giga Guidelines set all over my white card stock in Versamark and added some clear embossing powder. I set it with my handy dandy embossing tool and then rubbed some Sweet Blush hybrid ink all over until I got a color that I liked.

For the sentiment, I stamped the "birthday" and "wishes" in Ripe Avocado and rubbed on more Sweet Blush and then a little Chai around the edges as well. Of course, I also distressed all the edges ... love that! A little ribbon and some foam tape under the sentiment and this was easy as pie. I think I'll go try it with hearts now and make some of those V-day cards! :-)

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project! Happy Friday y'all!

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Giga Guidelines
Ink: Sweet Blush, Ripe Avocado, Chai; Versamark
Paper: Kraft, White, Ripe Avocado
Other: Sweet Blush grosgrain; foam tape

Unity Friends with Flair

Happy Friday y'all! Popping in today to share a couple of Unity cards for the Friday Friends with Flair blog hop. Both of the cards I am sharing today use stamps from the October 09 Kit of the Month. This was such a cute kit!

The first card has this flower bunch/patch image, which I colored with some Copic markers and added a little bling with a Sakura gelly roll pen (which is kind of hard to see in the photo). I left a sentiment off the front, so I could stamp one on the inside when I decide to mail this off to a friend. Could be great for many different occasions! :)
The second card uses the cutie owl image from the kit. I stamped the image twice, so that I could cut out the eyes and add them on foam tape for a little dimension. Cute, huh?!Sorry to cut this short, but I have a busy day ahead of me so I will catch y'all later this weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by! :)

Supplies Used - Flower Card:
Stamps: Unity Oct 09 KOTM
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa; Copic Markers; Sakura glitter pen; PTI Chai, Chamomile
Paper: PTI White; SU! Pink Pirouette; My Minds Eye DP

Hiya! Only two more sleeps til the weekend! Woot! (Wait ... who am I kidding?! I really haven't been to work this week due to the snow days! And we do have a one hour delay tomorrow. Nice!)

Despite being off, I am looking forward to some flip flop weather and the summer, which explains this card ...Dude, flip flops are my thing. I would wear them everywhere all the time if I could, but its too cold and its not appropriate at work. Dern it! Anywho, I saw this paper at Archivers about a month ago and they had one sheet left. It totally fell in my basket! I cut out a pair and added them on foam tape next to those sweet alpha stickers. Must use more alpha stickers!

I also got some new books today ... again with the "I wish it was summer and I was chillin in my flip flops reading by the pool" vibe. An assortment ... The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult and Dear John by Nicholas Sparks. I will let you know how they are once I get them read!

That's it for now folks ... I had better get to bed or tomorrow morning will be a harsh reality. ;-) I will be back Friday with a couple new Unity cards for you. See you then!

Supplies Used:
Card stock: Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White, Orange Zest

Happy Birthday Papertrey #7

Whew! This is Card #7 of 7 ... I mentioned previously in this post that I am showing off my "Happy Birthday to Papertrey" cards for their 3rd Anniversary contest. So, if you see this one first, please hit refresh on your browser to see what else I've had fun making today! :-) I hope to get to the other 2 images later this week, but for now this is all I've got! And this one is my favorite! :-)

The Birthday image is from Dawn. I just love that girl's style and the fonts she used here. So fun! You can see her sample and grab the image here. I punched a bunch of Dark Chocolate Bitty Box circles and stuck them to a Kraft base and trimmed the edges. Then I added a strip of Pure Poppy card stock and layered it with some Berry Sorbet ribbon (looks more pink here) and ties a sweet bow. I added a Pure Poppy mat behind the image and attached it with some red twine. EASY PEASY and love the effect. Thanks for a great image and color scheme Dawn! :-)

That's it for me tonight. They just announced another snow day for tomorrow, so I can't wait to see what else I can get into in my craft room in the morning! Thanks for stopping by and for your comments - love reading your feedback! :-)

Supplies Used (all PTI):
Image: Dawn McVey
Paper: Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy; Bitty Box DSP - Dark Chocolate
Accessories: Berry Sorbet grosgrain; red twine - craft supply

Happy Birthday Papertrey #6

Card #6 here ... I mentioned previously in this post that I am showing off my "Happy Birthday to Papertrey" cards for their 3rd Anniversary contest. So, if you see this one first, please hit refresh on your browser to see what else I've had fun making today! :-)

This card is one I made using a cutie image from Alli Miles. I think its perfect for a baby or little kiddo card and just by changing out the colors you can easily make it cater to either gender. You can see Alli's great sample and grab her image here.This card is pretty simple, but I added some Swiss Dots embossing to the bottom half of the card base ... since I had dragged my Cuttlebug out and all for this card. I had planned to go more Sweet Blush pink with this one, but grabbed the wrong Copic for that! Whoops! LOL Anyway, I love the Melon Berry so it turned out great. I distressed the edges of the Melon Berry layers ... an attempt to distract from my inability to freehand cut a perfect circle! (Shhhh don't tell anyone!) Seriously, this is a great way to hide some cutting/trimming imperfections.

Thanks for stopping by! I have one more card to show tonight ... I ran out of time and good light, but may attempt the other 2 later this week but don't forsee getting them done in time for the challenge.

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Image: Alli Miles
Ink: Copics
Paper: Kraft, Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry
Other: Melon Berry twill ribbon; Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug)

Happy Birthday Papertrey #5

Back with #5 ... I mentioned previously in this post that I am showing off my "Happy Birthday to Papertrey" cards for their 3rd Anniversary contest. So, if you see this one first, please hit refresh on your browser to see what else I've had fun making today! :-)

This next card is one using an image from Heather Nichols. She has such a cute style and this little cupcake image is no exception. You can see her sample card and grab the image here.
I printed off the image and trimmed it down, keeping it a little off-center on purpose. I distressed the edges with some Chamomile ink and added a mat of Ocean Tides to match the cupcake liner. Love the polka dots in this image ... so fun! A little bit of Dark Chocolate Bitty Box paper and some Summer Sunrise twill and this card was done. I also used a sentiment from Vintage Picnic - love the typewriter and cursive font combo in those! This color combo is really fun too ... must try again!

Thank you for stopping by (... again LOL)!

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Cupcake image from Heather Nichols; Vintage Picnic
Ink: Chai, Chamomile; SU! Chocolate Chip
Paper: Stampers Select White, Kraft, Ocean Tides; Bitty Box DSP - Dark Chocolate
Other: Summer Sunrise Twill

Happy Birthday to Papertrey #4

Hi again ... so I mentioned previously in this post that I am showing off my "Happy Birthday to Papertrey" cards for their 3rd Anniversary contest. So, if you see this one first, please hit refresh on your browser to see what else I've had fun making today! :-)

This is my 4th card for the challenge and uses an image from Lisa Johnson. You can see her sample card and grab the digital image here.

As soon as I saw this image, I immediately thought "oval nesties!" LOL So, I dug out my nesties and Cuttlebug and cut out some ovals. I needed an in-between oval, so I freehanded one and then decided that a little distressing on the edges would make it seem less handcut! LOL

I used a 5" square kraft base on this one stamped with an medallion from Giga Guidlines in Chai ink just to add some texture. I also spritzed the whole card with Glimmer Mist. Love that stuff. In hindsight, I need a smaller flower, but its a little late for that now! Its pretty close to the idea that I had in my head. :-)

On to finish posting my cards! Thank you so much for stopping by and checking this one out! :-)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Image from Lisa Johnson; PTI Giga Guidelines
Ink: PTI Chai, Chamomile
Paper: PTI Kraft, Stampers Select White, Ocean Tides; Bitty Dots DSP - Lavender Moon
Other: Lavender Moon grosgrain; Plum Pudding button; twine & hydrangea blossom from Michaels; Glimmer Mist - Pearl; Stickles - Stardust

Happy Birthday to Papertrey #3

Hi again ... so I mentioned previously in this post that I am showing off my "Happy Birthday to Papertrey" cards for their 3rd Anniversary contest. So, if you see this one first, please hit refresh on your browser to see what else I've had fun making today! :-)

This card is one that uses an image from Beth Silaika. You can check out her card sample and grab this great image here.I kept this card really simple ... would make a great man card or one to mass produce if you needed to. I printed the image and trimmed it down. I used some Copics to add a little something to the candle. I punched some 1/2 circles out of a New Leaf scrap and glued them on the back of the strip to create a big ole scallop border. Another scrap strip along the top and some stitching and that was that.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card! :-)

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Image from Beth Silaika for PT
Ink: Copic markers
Paper: Aqua Mist, Stampers Select White, New Leaf

This card is one using an image from Melissa Bickford. You can see her original post about her image here. A really simple layout on this one and some ribbon stitching.

Happy Birthday to PTI #1

Hiya! Get ready to a LOT of posts here ... there's going to be 7 in a row and this is number one. So, if you find this one first, hit refresh on your browser to see what else I've made today. :)

First off, Praise the Lord for the snow! Without which, we would not have had a snow day and I may not have gotten to have soooo much fun in my craft room today! hehe (I did go in for a few hours and get some copies, etc made though.) Anywho ...

Papertrey is celebrating its 3rd anniversary and today's challenge was to create a card with each of the 9 stamp designer's special birthday images. So, this morning I started downloading and planning cards in my mind so when I got back from work I could get started.

Here's my first card for the challenge...This card uses a special image from Niki Estes. She is joining the world of stamp designing this year and I can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve. Check out her card and get her graphic here.

I started with an Aqua Mist card base, added a strip of Berry Sorbet Bitty Box paper and then covered the seam with some seam binding. I punched the gift image and tied it around the bow. The sentiment is from Faux Ribbon - love the versatile sentiments in that set! (Sorry for the wet fray check on my ribbon ends ... I was hustling to get all my cards done before the sun went down! LOL)

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my cards. I love reading your comments!

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Image from Niki Estes; sentiment - Faux Ribbon
Ink: Palette Noir Black
Paper: Aqua Mist, White, Berry Sorbet; Bitty Box DSP - Berry Sorbet
Other: Berry Sorbet button; twine; Wrights seam binding

The Birds

Hi and happy Tuesday! Another snow day here, but I will be going in to do a few things since schools are technically only closed to students ... it automatically becomes a teacher workday.

The other day I mentioned that I was working on some baby thank you cards for a friend of mine who is expecting her firstborn. She often orders cards from me, so I decided to beat her to it and make her some as a gift. I shared some before with a sock monkey image from Unity. The ones here are my most recent design for her in two color ways. I really like the onesie template from PTI, but I thought the shirt was a little too wide for my taste, so I just made my own template. I used a brown Sharpie marker to "stitch" the shirts and add some little "snaps" since brads would have been too big for these little guys on my 4-1/4" square cards. I think they turned out pretty cutesy-wootsy if I do say so myself. I'd love to make some in pink and doll them all up, but she's expecting a boy so that wouldn't be the best idea I ever had!
Before I run off to my classroom, I wanted to share a few pictures of our snowfall. In NC, we don't get much so while its not all that outrageous to some of you northerners, this is enough to stop everything down here! For a few days. Seriously. The picture below is looking out our front door on Saturday morning (it started snowing Friday night).
And this picture is one we took on Saturday afternoon when we ventured out to our local shopping center ... mostly just to get out of the house. (And my husband wanted some Doritos. LOL) This much snow is enough make people clean out the grocery stores like food was never going to be seen again. Literally, the ENTIRE aisle of chips at the Super Wal-Mart was completely barren. It was hilarious. So was seeing these seagulls come flying at the car when my husband rolled down the window so I could get a good photo. You can see the window (left bottom corner) is on its way back up since we weren't expecting a scene from the movie, The Birds. (I guess they figured we were there to feed them?!)

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Have a great day everyone!

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Faux Ribbon
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip; fine tip Sharpie
Paper: White, Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise; Bitty Dot - Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado; Bitty Box - Aqua Mist; Polka Dot Parade
Other: Wrights seam binding; edge distresser tool

Another Ippity Blog Hop

Happy Monday people! We have a snow day today - hip hip hooray! LOL Even teachers enjoy an unexpected day off :-)

Today, I am sharing another Ippity card for the Monday blog hop. I actually made this card a few weeks ago and sent it on to a friend who is trusting in the Lord for some things going on right now. He is good. And He helps us in our time of need. I love the verses in the Devoted stamp set and the different fonts/handwriting used to create them.
I stamped the scripture on a left over piece of DP I got from a kit (sorry I don't know the manufacturer). And I stamped the branch image onto textured Bazzill and added a little olive-y green color with a Copic marker. Otherwise, this card was quick to make. I did a lot of distressing with ink and my Heidi Swapp edge distresser tool. I even inked up the twill tape to age it a bit as well.

Well, that is all I've got for you right now. I am off to check out the other Ippity blog hop participants and to work on some projects. Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Unity Ippity - Devoted
(Need/want to get the Devoted stamp set, please visit my stamping friend Banu!)
