Hi everyone. I made a card for the Unity Sketch Challenge and the Unity Monthly Challenge. I used the house stamp from the Jan. 2012 stamp kit of the month as well as the Heart and Soul sentiment. I stamped the house onto some Memory Box Valise designer paper with Tim Holtz tea dye Distress Ink. I love stamping on patterned paper and the house looks great with 2 different papers. I used a SU punch for the hearts, a Memory Box Scalloped Posie die for the rosettes. I free hand cut the clouds and inked all the edges with the tea
dye. I added some rick-rack, lace, and twine to complete the card. Hope you like it.
Hello friends. Today I am sharing a card I made using the CottageCutz Spring Chickadee die. I also made a video showing how I made my little Chick. I didn't realize until after I uploaded the video that Cheryl had also done one on the same die. I am a little behind in reading the other posts, so I apologize for that. We both have different styles, and I show how to use a Peachy Keen face on mine, so you will learn something different if you choose to watch it. I hope you do, and enjoy!
Hello friends! Lots of birthdays in February. I made this card for a friend. Her birthday was yesterday. My birthday and my friend Judy, that I craft with at Ink About It, is today. Happy Birthday Judy if you are reading this! My Father-in-law is turning 84 tomorrow! Happy Birthday Dad! Happy Birthday to all of you that have birthdays in February. My sister Dianne celebrated her 60th birthday on the 18th!
The card was made with Unity Stamps. The cake and the party stamp are from the May 2011 Kit of the Month set. The balloons are from the Feb. 20011 Kit of the Month set. The balloons were tied to a bicycle. I just wanted the balloons, not the bike. I used RV-02 Sugared Almond Pink, C-3 Cool Gray, and a black copic multiliner to color the images. The balloons have some glossy accents on top, though you can't tell by the photo. If you join the Kit of the Month Club, you only pay $31.00 and that includes shipping. The sets are 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of red rubber and they stamp beautifully. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I appreciate all of you that visit my blog and I hope you don't leave, disappointed.
Hello friends! I made this card for the Peachy Keen Challenge #5 but I missed the date. Darn! Oh well, better luck next time. I wanted to practice my copic coloring with shades of black/gray. I still need lots of practice but it was fun to challenge myself! I reverse stamped the image and darkened the lines with a very fine tipped copic multiliner. I drew the sidewalk and background with the same fine tipped multiliner. Then using cool shades of gray, I tried to color the image like a black and white photo.
The sentiment is hand written. I would love to see how my friend Lorie would color Vivienne from PK-277 Vivienne and Friends set. I learn so much from her inspiring work! I hope I make the deadline next time!
Hello friends! Today's card features the Shower Peepers die designed by Peachy Keen Stamps. This is a 4x6 inch die that includes 3 face stamps and accessories, an umbrella, a broom, and some flowers. I chose to use the umbrella. She looks like she is singing in the rain.
I used white cardstock to cut the diecuts, and a combination of regular markers, chalk, and ink to add some shading. I used lime green Stickles on the umbrella. We have had a very mild winter this year, YAY! Happy Spring everyone!
Hello friends. I haven't posted in a week because my first and oldest son got married on Saturday. It was a beautiful, private wedding in Vermont. I will post pictures when I receive them. It was such a special, blessed event and I am so happy for my son and new daughter-in-law. It was the perfect weekend!
I have a card for the PK challenge. We used a photo for inspiration. I used the Teddy Bear from PK-034 Oh Baby.
You can check out the details of the challenge here. Thanks for stopping by.
Today I have this adorable Sweetheart Puppy die to share with you. I think Cottage Cutz make the cutest dies!
I cut the puppy from white cardstock and colored her up with my Copics. I think this makes a cute Valentine card but like all Cottage Cutz, they can be used in a variety of ways, by adding or removing different components from the die. Be sure and stop by the store to browse some of the newest releases. So many to choose from. I just received my new dies designed by Peachy Keen and will be sharing those with you soon. Have a great day!
Here is my entry for the Peachy Keen challenge. Photo Inspiration. I used PK-240 Say It With Flowers. The card looks much better in person. Sorry for the poor quality photo.
You can check out the details for the challenge here. The collection closes in about 2 hours. Last week I got it in with 7 minutes to spare. This week 2 hours. Thanks Lisa for giving me a nudge again this week.
