It's been over a month now since I've posted. My foster child left on October 12, and I had surgery on my hand on October 15. I've been a little down in the dumps. Everything is so hard to do with just one good hand!

There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes" is called "Things with Wings." I used the Paper Cupcakes image called, "Aloha". It's such a cute image and works so well for a friendship type card. I made mine an easel card. I used Pretty In Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White card stocks and some Pretty In Pink polka dot DSP. The sentiment ("Friend") is from "Mixed Medley" which is a hostess set, and I punched it out with the new 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch. I used MS punches for the flowers. We hope you will join in on this challenge. You don't have to use a Paper Cupcakes image, but we hope you do. Thanks for stopping by!!

There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes" is to make a card to "Just Say Hello" to a new neighbor or a teacher or anyone you just want to say hello to. This image from Paper Cupcakes is called "Greetings", and it's a FREEBIE!!!. It's so cheerful! I used Tempting Turquoise for the base card with a layer of retired DSP. The mat is Pear Pizzazz as well as the Pleated Ribbon and Ribbon Seam Binding for the bow. I used the Decorative Label Punch for the Levi tag and the Word Window Punch for the sentiment. I punched with the Word Window Punch and then inserted the piece back into the punch to make it shorter. Everything is from Stampin' Up! except for the digi image from Paper Cupcakes. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

There's Magic in the Air" is to use something recycled on your card. I used a pop-top to make the "buckle". I wanted that plaid ribbon to look like a dog collar. I don't usually use red and yellow together, but I thought it looked cheerful and it matches that ribbon. The base card is Real Red with a layer of yellow gingham dp. The bone brad came from my friend, Greenie. The sentiment is from SU!'s "Teeny Tiny Wishes", and it's punched with the Word Window Punch and matted on the Modern Label punched piece. The image was colored with Copics. Thanks for stopping by!!

Orange Mummy Cat" card. I was inspired by that little mummy kitty and really felt like making a Halloween card. I got a chance to use my new "Googly Ghouls" from Stampin' Up!'s new Holiday Catalog. I stamped the little mummy and cut him out; then I popped him up and added the Googly Eye. The sentiment is from "Grateful Greetings" and is stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Black EP. The card stocks are Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

"Paper Punch Addiction". I thought this little dragon was so cute. I think I should have sponged the scales on his back, head and tail, though. I know my friends will enjoy making this!! Thanks for stopping by!

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I've posted anything!! I've had ladies here to make gift cards and ladies here to make two cards as well, but I haven't had a chance to take photos and post. Well, I'm back with a card for the challenge over at "There's Magic in the Air." This challenge is to make an invitation to a party, any kind of party from baby shower to barbecue. Mine is an invitation to my annual July 4th barbecue and fireworks watching party. I used one of Nina's images which you can find over at Paper Cupcakes. This one is called "Flag Stamp with Flowers". The image was colored with Copics, cut out and matted on Red, White and Blue. The whole thing was adhered to a 4.25" X 5.5" white card stock. The back has all the info on where, why and when. Thanks for stopping by!!

The challenge for Paper Cup Cakes - There's Magic in the Air is to use "Mustache Cupcake" which is a Freebie Image and make a card that is male related. I have a friend who has a mustache, not a handlebar type, but he has one, and he's a dad, so I will give him this card for Father's Day. It would be nice to make a chocolate cupcake with caramel frosting, too!! I think the idea of making a mustache out of chocolate icing would be really cute! I'm on a diet, so don't tempt me! LOL! I used SU! Marina Mist for the base card and Cutie Pie Papers Raindrop Plaid for the next layer. I colored the cupcake image with Copics and die cut with Labels Two Nesties. The strips were made with the SU! Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch which I think look good on masculine cards. The sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" and the banner was die cut with SU! Framelits - Bitty Banners. Head on over to "There's Magic in the Air" and grab that freebie image and join us for this challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

I presented the Twisted Sistahs Challenge for this week. It was called, "It's Easy as 1, 2, 3." 1 (or more) Punch, 2 (or more) Nesties, and 3 (or more) buttons, brads or bows. There was a dessert option to use orange in any amount and anywhere on the card. I'm visiting with wannabcre8ive, irishgreensue, and 101 Airborne this weekend, so I'm in Illinois. We've been stamping in Shirley's craft room today. I made this card for the challenge. Since I was using all of Shirley's supplies, I have no idea what the card stocks and papers are called. The base card is orange with a layer of dp. One of the die cuts is also a dp. The Labels Two Nestie is white. I matched one of the dp's when I punched the leaves and used the same orange card stock as the base for the flowers. I used more than one punch, the two Nesties, three brown brads and there's lots of orange here. Thanks for stopping by!!

The Color Challenge on SCS is to use Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party with a dessert option to use twine. I didn't do the dessert on these little gift cards. I bought these little plastic boxes that hold the 3 X 3 cards and envelopes perfectly. I've only made six so far, but I think ten will fit. I'm going to stop at eight because that's how many 3 X 6 pieces you can get out of a 12 X 12 sheet of card stock. This is what I want to do for the next Card Makers group next week. I think I'll let them use various punches and stamps to make each one different though. (If they want to) I used Whisper White, Pool Party DSP, Certainly Celery for the leaves and Daffodil Delight for the flowers. The flowers were punched with the 4-petal punch from the Punch Pack and then embossed and a White Gel Pen dot was added to the centers. The sentiment was from "Just Believe" and was stamped with Pool Party ink. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

This is a card I made for my daughter's friend, Shane. He's 21 today! She wanted it to have a bottle on it since he can now legally drink. He's not much of a drinker, but it's legal for him to go to a club where they serve alcohol now. You know how it is when you're young; you can't wait to turn 21. I didn't have a stamp of a bottle, so I went online and found the whiskey bottle and the sign. The stamped sentiment is from "Celebrate Everything" which I think has been retired for a while. The card is 5-3/8" square. The base card is Chocolate Chip with a layer of DCWV Glitter Stack card stock. I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron for the matting. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Crazy 4 Challenges, the challenge is to make a one-layer card. I made mine with heavy white card stock, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder and a diffuser. I sponged inside the oval and stamped the flowers from "Bordering on Romance". The sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" which has become my "Go To" set for sentiments lately. Everything except the card stock came from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!
"Thanks so Much" card which she uploaded three years ago, almost to the day. I didn't want to change a thing, so my changes are very subtle. I used different DSP. Mine is Beau Chateau. I also changed the colors very slightly. I used Crumb Cake (Kraft) for the base card and Chocolate Chip for all of the matting. The stamps used are "Pocket Silhouettes" (retiring June 1, 2012) and "Teeny Tiny Wishes" for the sentiment. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Paper Punch Addition. I used Baja Breeze for the base card with a layer of DSP that was embossed with Retro Circles (Tim Holtz/Sizzix). The lily pad is die cut using the Clear Circle Die and Garden Green card stock. Several SU! Punches were used to make the frog out of Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Blushing Bride, Whisper White and Basic Black. The water lily flower was made using Pretty In Pink and Shimmery White card stocks. The sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" and was die cut using the Bitty Banner Framelits. I used Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder and heat embossed the sentiment. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Mojo Monday Sketch in a long time. I decided to do this week's sketch using what we lovingly call "Da Man". This guy from the Wild Wild West set is so popular! I stamped him on some retired DSP with Black Stazon. The base card is Basic Black with a layer of Sahara Sand that has been embossed with the Stripes Impressions Folder. The horizontal strip was made with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch and I added a Vintage Brad. There's also some branches that I thought looked kind of like sage brush. Those were punched with a Martha Steward Punch. Everything is from Stampin' Up! except for the MS Punch. Thanks for stopping by!!

Tilly. This is VERY CAS. I used Naturals White for the base card which is 4-1/4" square when finished. The sentiment came from "Upsy Daisy" which is retiring. The flower from "Fabulous Florets" (my favorite set) was stamped twice with the new in-color, Primrose Petals. I cut one whole flower out and popped it up, then, I cut just the center petals and popped those up one the whole flower. I added Dazzling Details to the very center. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

"See Beyond" card. I changed colors, stamps, papers and the leaf embellishment. I also moved the sentiment to the circle and forgot to sponge the circle. I used Chocolate Chip Textured Card Stock, Pumpkin Pie card stock, Bashful Blue card stock, Naturals Ivory card stock and dp from DCWV. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon and the leaves are from Michael's. This is also for the Ways To Use It challenge which was to use complimentary colors. I used blue and orange.
