Bouquet (CC286, MMTPT109)

This card is for two challenges, both of which are presented on Tuesdays.

First of all, Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge is to "think colorful". Go here to find out the whole story. The Color Challenge is to use More Mustard, Baja Breeze and Melon Mambo with a neutral (I used Very Vanilla). I thought that would be pretty colorful. I had to add some Certainly Celery for the leaves and I made them go "off the edge" which was the dessert for the Color Challenge. I used the Flower Trio and Boho Blossoms punches and the Flower Daisy and Little Leaves Sizzlits. I used Labels Nesties and Floral Screen CB EF, too. My birthday sentiment is on the inside. Thanks for stopping by!

Cardboard Pumpkin (TLC288)

I decided to check out the Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS today. We were to recycle cardboard. I had a box on top of my trash can that was already torn. I was going to tear it into smaller pieces so that it would fit nicely into my waste wheeler. I tore off a chunk and used it for the BG. I didn't even sponge it! I used a piece of the lid and die cut the pumpkin, stem and leaf. I ran some scraps of DSP through the Big Shot with the same die to cover the cardboard rather than sponging or coloring it in some other manner. I backed the die cut pumpkin with a piece of Basic Black card stock to show through the eyes, nose and mouth. I also used a piece of cardboard that comes with things like ink pad kits or papers. I stamped the sentiment, punched and sponged the piece before using a Pop-Up Glue Dot to adhere it. The little ghost is a foam sticker which I sponged a little, too. The "Scary" is the ghost and the "Sweet" is the polka dot jack-o-lantern! Everything is from Stampin' Up! except for the die and the foam sticker. Thanks for stopping by!!

Get Well Card

I found a little time this afternoon to make a "Get Well" card for a lady from my church. Her daughter is a good friend and she has been living with her daughter and daughter's family. Well, she had two strokes within a 24 hour period and spent a couple of days in the hospital. She's home now and looking pretty good, all things considered. I think this card is called a Sliding Pop-Up Card, and I added the punch art dog that Kim Score used on a card called, "Sick as a Dog." The sentiment on the front is hand written, the clouds were free hand cut and then sponged, and the grass was free hand cut, too.
This is what it looks like when you "pull" the tab. I took this to my friend's house earlier, and they just loved it. The main thing is that the lady who had the strokes got a big kick out of it. I think it really cheered her up! The inside sentiment is from "Sincere Salutations". I hand wrote "pull" on the tab. I think the tutorial for this type of card is in the Resources section on SplitCoastStampers.com. It's also on Kim Score's Blog. Thanks again for stopping by!!

CASEing BobbiesGirl (FS186)

BobbiesGirl is our Featured Stamper this week. Carol is very talented and uses SU! products, too! I didn't have a lot of time this week, so I looked for a Clean & Simple card. I finally decided on CASEing this one. If I had white textured card stock, I don't think I'd have changed anything except for the stamp. I did have Certainly Celery TCS though with Basic Black for the base card. I heat embossed the Bonsai tree from "Plant Hope" with Black Embossing Powder. I used Black Stazon for the sentiment from "Teeny Tiny Wishes". I love the simplicity of the card. I put it next to a cactus garden I'm giving to my Secret Sister. Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Bear-ied in Paperwork (CCEE1034)

This is for the CCEE Stampers Challenge. It's a sketch. My friend Shirley (aka wannabcre8ive) sent me this stamp for my birthday in May along with some die cuts. I think the little bear is so cute! The stamp is called "Bear-ied in Paperwork", and that's just how I feel right now. You ought to see my desk!! Now, back to the card... This is a 5-3/8" square card. The base card and mat are Basic Black, the embossed panel is Very Vanilla, the main image panel is Naturals Ivory and the "inchies" are cut from Newsprint DSP. Thanks for stopping by!!

Thank You for your comments!!!

You know, I don't get a lot of comments on my blog posts of my cards, and that's OK, but today I got THREE comments on my "I'm Trying" post. I'm so inspired by you people who take the time to give encouragement to someone you don't even know! I am so blessed by that!! I know God has a plan for me. I have to focus on taking care of my 95 year old mother with Alzheimer's and my 15 year old son with special needs (ADHD and FAS). Yes, my 21 year marriage is over, and I'm starting a new chapter in my life. It's just so uplifting to know that you are out there and that you care! God bless you!!!

Punch Art Lion (TSC0827)

Today's Twisted Sistah's Challenge was presented by ME! My challenge was to use Punch Art. You must know by now what a fan I am of punch art and Kim Score's blog. This is her "Loving Lion" and you can get the instructions for the lion for free. I made mine into an easel card. For the card, I used Sage Shadow and Really Rust card stock (both retired now), and I used Autumn Vine DSP (also retired). The sentiment is from "Well Scripted" and is stamped on Very Vanilla matted on Early Espresso. The lion is made with several SU! Punches out of More Mustard, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Pretty In Pink and Basic Black card stocks. I used a White Gel Pen and Black Journaling Pen for details. All products used to make this card are from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

I'm trying...

I'm trying to get it together to make a card for one of the challenges. I missed yesterday's Sketch Challenge because of working on my stamp camp. Maybe I'll be able to combine a couple of challenges. I just have to get the inspiration. I've been kind of down. I had to go to court today to end my 21 year marriage, so I'm a divorced woman now. It doesn't really feel very good. I'll try to get something done and posted. If not, there's always tomorrow, I guess.

August 2010 Stamp Camp

My August Stamp Camp is this Friday, so I have been diligently working on the designs. I still have some cutting to do, but it's just for the last three designs which are easy to cut. This Stamp Camp is called "All Fall". The reason I do the fall cards in August is because my September, October and November Stamp Camps are ALL Christmas cards. Having the Halloween and Thanksgiving cards done before the beginning of September works out for mailing anyway.
My last Stamp Camp was ALL punch art. This time, we're only doing one punch art card. I actually posted this card previously because I did it for a Featured Stamper challenge. The punch art design is from Kim Score's Blog. It's one of her free tutorials.
I said we were only doing one punch art design and we are, but some people don't like Halloween cards, so the ladies in my second session will be doing this punch art turkey instead of the goblin card. The instructions for this one are also on Kim Score's Blog. I guess you can tell that I'm a huge fan of Kim Score's punch art designs!
Here's another Halloween card for my first session people to make. The Raven is a single stamp. The DSP, the new crinkle paper (embossed with spiderweb EF) and the stamp are all in the new Holiday Mini Catalog. The DSP has the words from Poe's "Nevermore" in various sizes all over it. Great stuff for Halloween!!
Again, instead of the Raven Halloween card, my second session ladies will make this fall card which I CASEd from the Idea Book & Catalog (IBC). The card stock is Old Olive, Early Espresso and Naturals Ivory. The pumpkins, etc. from "Autumn Harvest" were water colored and cut out. One pumpkin and the leaf are popped up with Dimensionals.
Everyone will be doing this project and the next two. The leaves are from "French Foliage" and the sentiment from "Grateful Greetings". The leaves are stamped with So Saffron, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler, the spots with Soft Suede. The card stock is Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Naturals Ivory. The ribbon is Old Olive Taffeta from last year's Holiday Mini.
This card features a "Sailor's Knot". I saw someone use that on a card on SCS and liked the idea. I Googled "Sailor's Knot" and found instructions for it. I'm making all the knots for my Stamp Campers, but I'll show them how to do it. The light house is stamped on Whisper White with Black Stazon and colored with Sahara Sand, Real Red, and Pacific Point Markers. The other card stock is Sahara Sand and Pacific Point. I love to visit light houses in the fall.
The last project is an easel card. When folded, it's just 4.25" square. This one is made using More Mustard and Very Vanilla card stock and retired Autumn Vine DSP. The corn image from "Harvest Home" was colored with Water Color Pencils and blended with a Blender Pen. The sentiment is from "Grateful Greetings". I just had to add my little embossed flowers and leaves. I used tiny gold pearls for the flower centers. All products used to make all seven of the above cards came from Stampin' Up! (except for the gold pearls on the easel card). Thanks for stopping by!!

Ball Gown (MMTPT108)

This is for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. This week, we were to bring all the fancy stuff, anything "Molly", such as crystal chandeliers, lace, diamonds, pearls, silverware, beautiful china, etc. Well, I brought my SU! Demo friend, Tess, so that she could model one of Molly's gorgeous gowns. (Tess can fit into Molly's dresses...I can't!!) The gown has a sheer bodice with long sleeves and is pale pink with pearl buttons on the front. The sash is made from the finest pink satin of the day. The skirt of the gown is made from yards and yards of the most beautiful imported French lace. Thanks for stopping by!!

Sleepy Owl (CAS81)

I'm sorry about the photography today. I just don't have time to correct it. That card is actually WHITE!! This is for the Clean & Simple Challenge which is a color challenge this week. We were to make a CAS card using white, kraft and turquoise. I punched the owl using the new 2-step Owl Punch from Stampin' Up! I used Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft), Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black and retired Turquoise Prints DSP. The owl was sponged with Crumb Cake ink. I used the new Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch for the horizontal strip and Tempting Turquoise ink for the sentiment from "Teeny Tiny Wishes". Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

CASEing Heather (FS185, QFTD23)

Well, apparently, the Queen for the Day Challenge has been around for 23 weeks, and this is the first time I've seen the same person named as the Queen AND the Featured Stamper all in the same weekend. Our Queen and Featured Stamper is Princessheather. I like to browse through Heather's gallery. She is very talented. I chose to CASE this card. The changes I made are:
  1. Colors
  2. Ribbon
  3. Extra layer of matting
  4. Fiskars Texture Plate (Beehive) instead of Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
  5. Cut out and popped up the beehive

My card stock colors are Basic Black, Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla. I water colored the hive and bee. The inside sentiment says, "Have a honey of a day!" Except for the Texture Plate, everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Santa! (C4C51)

This week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge is this great sketch with strips of patterned paper in various sizes. Of course, you could put various sizes of ribbons or other trim in place of the DP. I used the new Candy Cane Christmas DSP from Stampin' Up! One side of this particular sheet has the little squirrels with gifts and holly while the other side is Baja Breeze with Real Red glittered dots. I used Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Real Red card stock. I die cut the oval with my Big Shot and Labels Ten Nestabilities. The Santa was die cut using Santa #3 Sizzlit. I also used the Word Window Punch and Modern Label Punch for the sentiment panel. The sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes". Everything except for the die cuts is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Buttons & Bling (TSC0820)

This card is for this week's Twisted Sistah's Challenge. Lesley (Marleygo) presented this challenge. We were to use red, black and white. For accessories, we were to use ribbon and do something different with it along with a bow or knot, and we were to use buttons. We get bonus points for using SPARKLE, glitter or bling. I used the right colors, wove the ribbon, used the buttons AND I added bling to the die cut pieces. The die cuts were made with Cuttlebug Vintage dies which were a birthday gift from Pat Smethers who has become a dear friend. The white panel was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder from Stampin' Up! I used two Martha Stewart border punches: Traditional Scallop and the Ribbon Border punch. The ribbon is Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon. I also used the Scallop Oval Punch and the stamp is from "Perfect Punches". Thanks for stopping by!!

Smile! (CCEE1033, WT284)

I finished this card this morning but had to leave for the day and didn't get to upload until tonight. It's for two challenges: It's for the CCEE Stampers Challenge which is this cool sketch, and it's for the Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS which is to use Versamark. I stamped the frog (All Night Media) with Black Stazon, water colored him, inked him up with Versamark Marker, sprinkled Glassy Glaze EP, heat embossed and cut him out. He's adhered with a Dimensional. Besides the frog stamp, I used "Inspired by Nature" for the grass behind the frog, "Pocket Silhouettes" for the greenery in front of him and "Picnic Parade" (retired hostess set) for the sentiment. The colors are Wild Wasabi, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. I used the new punch from Stampin' Up! that's in the Holiday Mini available on September 1st. My fingers are in the photo so that I could get the right angle to show how shiny (and wet) the froggie looks!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Trick or Treat (SC294)

Today's sketch challenge was a square card with lots of layers, so many that I chose not to mat them except for the main image panel, and I matted that one VERY tight. We could make it a larger card, possibly an A2 size, but I chose to keep it 4.25" square. I used Sage Shadow with Autumn Vine DSP which are both retired. The main image panel and inside lining are Very Vanilla. For the jack-o-lantern, I used Pumpkin & Vine and Pumpkin Faces Sizzlits. I only used the mouth on the Faces Sizzlit though. The eyes and nose are just triangles that I cut out from a scrap. The sentiment is from Grateful Greetings. Thanks for stopping by!!

Gone Fishing (MMTPT107)

Information about Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge may be found here. For this week's tea party, we were to bring anything to do with fishing. We could bring bobbers, bait, fishing poles, sinkers, etc. I brought this "Gone Fishing" sign. There's a story behind this, too: Old Doctor Maxwell Doilyslobber used to go fishing every Wednesday. Everybody in town knew that, but when he retired, people just didn't think he was REALLY retired. He met up with Sam Smead at the local diner who asked him, "Where were you yesterday, Doc? It was only Monday!" Well, the old doc had to remedy this situation, so he took down his plaque with his stuffed prize trout on it that hung behind his desk in his office and painted "Gone Fishing" on it. He took down the sign that said, "Maxwell Doilyslobber, M.D. - Internal Medicine and Geriatrics" and replaced it with his plaque. Now, it hangs there EVERY day. He hopes everyone gets the message!! As for YOU, thanks for stopping by!!
  • Stamps: SU! Woodgrain BG, Unknown Trout Stamp
  • Papers: Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip, Bermuda Bay, Pink Passion, Groovy Guava, Crushed Curry, Black Journaling Pen
  • Accessories: Big Shot, Tim Holtz Hanging Sign Sizzix Die, CB Forest Branches EF, Blender Pen, Sponge, Dimensionals

CASEing CAKath (FS184)

CAKath is our Featured Stamper this week. I CASEd this card. I changed from a square to an A2 size card to accommodate my punch art monster. I changed the colors and made my little crescent moons with punches instead of brads. The orange background is retired SU! DSP. The punch art instructions may be found on Kim Score's Blog. I'm a huge fan of hers!! Kim used a stamp for the face, but I used punches for the eyes and drew in the mouth, nose and eyebrows. Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Musical Christmas (CCEE1032, C4C50)

This is for the sketch challenge over at CCEE Stampers Blog and for the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge which was to have something to do with music on the card in honor of Elvis Presley Week. I didn't even know there was such a thing, but it's a good excuse for a challenge! The base card is Almost Artichoke and so is the vertical strip. That strip is embossed with musical notes. The background paper is "Deck the Halls", and it has the words to "O Christmas Tree" on it. I also used "Newsprint" DSP for the horizontal strip, and it has sheet music on it. The main image panel is Very Vanilla with Early Espresso for the mat. The stamp set used here is "Bells and Boughs" which is in the new Holiday Mini Catalog. The ribbon is recycled from a gift. Everything here is from Stampin' Up except for the ribbon and the Labels Nestability. Thanks for stopping by!!

Baby Card (TSC0813)

This is for this week's Twisted Sistah's Challenge which was presented by Tater. Phyllis said to make a baby card with no pink and no baby! I used the Baby Bundle set and made "inchies" to go with the sentiment: "bottles and bibs, booties and more -- that's what a baby shower is for!" The coloring was done with markers. The DSP is retired and so is the Old Olive Twill Ribbon. The squares and the sentiment panel are all popped up on dimensionals. Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

August 2010 Club Projects

This card will be project #1 for this month's club. It's a very simplified version of yesterday's sketch challenge card. I eliminated the lasso, one layer and the horizontal strip. I also used different colors and papers. I wanted to make something masculine but easy.
You can find more information on this card in my blog post about the "Convention Card". It's a card they made at this year's convention, and it's almost completely done with the Big Shot. At the time I made this sample, I didn't have the Butterflies Embosslit, so I used embossed flowers. I have the right Embosslit now, so we will be using butterflies as embellishments just like the original card that was made at convention. Check out that earlier post to see the inside of the card. It's just as pretty as the front! Everything used for both of these cards came from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Out West (SC293)

This is for today's sketch challenge. The big deal was supposed to be the piece that is punched with a border punch. Mine is kind of narrow, but the punched part still shows. I just didn't want it to look too feminine. I used the new "Out West" set for the main image and the retired "Bronco" Wheel for the horizontal strip. I also sponged the inside and stamped it with the horse shoe from the set. The background is retired Stampin' Up! Specialty Paper. Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!

Uncharted Territory (CC283)

This is for today's Color Challenge on SCS which is to use Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) with a neutral. The dessert option was to use newsprint. I have the new Newsprint DSP from Stampin' Up!, but it just didn't seem to work with this card. The main image from "Uncharted Territory" as stamped on Whisper White with Baja Breeze ink. The mat is Poppy Parade and so is the ribbon. I added eyelets because they just seem nautical to me! Thanks for stopping by!!

Punch Art Ostrich

As some of you know, I love Punch Art, and I found a blog where there are some free tutorials and some that you can buy. Kim Score is a punch art expert, and I bought a couple of her tutorials. One of them is her Zoo Collection. That's where I got the directions to make this ostrich. My daughter liked the ostrich best of the five animals in the Zoo Collection, so I made this birthday card for her. The base card is Old Olive and I used retired Stampin' Up! DSP for the background. I also had some retired Old Olive 1/4" Twill Ribbon, but you can hardly see it behind the ostrich. The ostrich is made up of Basic Black, Whisper White, Blush Blossom (retired) and Pumpkin Pie card stock. Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks again for stopping by!!

Garden (CAS79)

We're back from our visit to California to see my oldest daughter and her family. It was wonderful! Now, I'm back to work on cards. I have Club on Thursday and Friday nights and need to get ready for that, and I need to do some challenges and keep up this blog! Here's my card for today's Clean & Simple Challenge. It was a theme: "Gardens". I used the "Watercolor Trio" set from the Summer Mini. I colored the stamps with markers, huffed and stamped. The base card is Confetti White and the main image panel is Whisper White with a Rose Red mat. Everything here is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Wheels of Time (CCEE1031, TSC0806)

This is for the CCEE Stampers Challenge which is a sketch. The sketch is a tall card, but I made mine a top-folding A2 size card. The "panels" at the bottom are actually a paint chip from Lowe's! The vertical strip on the side was done with the new SU! Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. The stamped background was done with the "Sense of Time" set.

This is also for our Twisted Sistahs Challenge which was to have wheels of some sort on our cards. Cogs, gears, wheels....they're all the same to me! LOL! I thought I'd be different and NOT use some kind of vehicle on my card. Also, I used shades of blue because Peggy loves blue and she was this week's challenge presenter. Everything except the paint chip came from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Interesting Sketch (SC292)

Today's sketch was very interesting. It was tougher than it looks getting those three pieces of DP just in the right places. It's a bit narrower card than a standard A2 size, but it requires the same envelope because of the DP sticking out into negative space. I just used scraps for this, but it would have looked better with different DP besides the polka dot pieces, I think. The main image panel is cardboard backing from some packaging. The background DP must have been a gift from someone at some point, but I don't remember where I got it. I used the butterfly stamp, "All A Flutter" from the Summer Mini as well as the "Watercolor Trio" set for the sentiment. I'm really liking that Early Espresso ink and card stock! Everything used to make this card except for the unknown DP is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Punch Art Crocodile

Slowly but surely I'm doing each one of the punch art critters from Kim Score's Zoo Collection. I just don't know how she comes up with all these cute designs. I'm glad I bought two of her tutorials! This will be another birthday card for one of my grandchildren. If you'd like to purchase one of her tutorials or download one of her free tutorials, go to Kim's Blog. Everything used to make this card and punch art came from Stampin' Up! Thanks again for stopping by!!

Two for Tuesday (CC282, MMTPT105)

This is for two Tuesday challenges: The Color Challenge which is to use Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red and Early Espresso with a neutral, and there's a dessert option which is to use something new, and Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. You can find out the whole story about this tea party here. I brought girly girl pink satin ribbon, pearls and daisy fans to the tea party for Penelope, I brought blossoms for Blossum, and I brought tea for Bea! Thanks for stopping by!!

Punch Art Bear

Wonder what I've been doing this afternoon? Well, I have a cold, so I'm staying secluded in my Craft Room so that I don't infect the rest of the world! LOL! This is another of Kim Score's designs that is included in her Zoo Collection tutorial which I bought. I linked to her blog in the post about the Punch Art Hippo if you are interested in buying her tutorials. I even used her layout for the card! I just didn't use the same colors or DSP. This card will be for my grand daughter's birthday. I think she'll like it! Thanks again for stopping by!!

Correction: This is NOT in Kim's Zoo Collection!! It's in her Holiday Collection!! I must have gotten the print-outs out of order or something. So SORRY!! If you want to make this cute bear, purchase her Holiday Collection!!!

Polka Dots & Plaid (CAS78, TLC284)

Today, I combined two challenges: The Technique Lover's Challenge which was called Plaid Silhouettes and the Clean and Simple Challenge which was to use polka dots. For the technique, I inked up the whale from the "Animal Stories" set with Bashful Blue, then tapped it with the edge of Night of Navy and the edge of Riding Hood Red in the opposite direction. You make your own plaid!! It's so simple, and I love the look! For the Clean and Simple Challenge, I used DSP with tiny polka dots and, of course, the Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon. The only item used here that's not from Stampin' Up! is the Labels Nestability. Thanks for stopping by!!

Punch Art Hippo

During the summer months, I have a lot of birthdays to make cards for. I have 11 grandchildren with one more on the way, and 3 have birthdays in June, 3 in July, 1 in August, and 2 in September. The other two are in February and April, and the one on the way is due in October (but could make a third for September). Anyway, I went to Kim Score's blog and purchased her Zoo Collection which is a set of tutorials for making punch art animals. This hippo is one of them. The collection is only $5.50 and payable through Pay-Pal. I made this birthday card for one of my September birthdays. The sentiment is from "Pun Fun" and says, "Hip Hippo Ray!" Inside, there's a punch art balloon and there will be an envelope with money in it, too! Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks again for stopping by!!

Two CASEs (QFTD20, FS182)

This is for the Queen for the Day Challenge. The queen for this week is Francie G. I CASEd this card. This is a CASE of a CASE because her card was for a Featured Stamper Challenge. The changes I made are: colors, stamps, size of main image panel, Cuttlebug EF and I used rhinestones instead of dew drops for embellishments. I used some retired Bold Brights colors: Lovely Lilac, Only Orange, Green Galore and Yoyo Yellow. I also used Basic Black. The main image is embossed with Black Embossing Powder and so is the moon. The main panel is popped up as is the moon. Everything except the rhinestones and MS Border Punch is from Stampin' Up!
This one is for today's Featured Stamper Challenge. Our Featured Stamper this week is al_silver2 (Alanna). I CASEd this card from her gallery. I'm afraid I've caught a bug (no pun intended), so I'm very shakey today. That's why my card is such a mess, but you win some and lose some I guess! You get the idea though. Changes I made are: Colors and stamps. Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!
