Flourishes "let it snow" challenge

I am back making cards again.  Feels nice.  I only regret that I have no flourishes stamps to use for this challenge.  I need to make my chirstmas cards, so any challenge HAS to be made into a christmas card also.  Maybe I will win some goodies and be able to get a few christmas stamps that way....I do have a few on my want list.  Here is the Flourishes Let It Snow Challenge Link

Flourishes Tag Birthday card

A nice little simple card for a almost tweener.  I decided on the tag design from the Flourishes Challenge.  Thanksfor the inspiration!  Magnolia stamp is from Flourishes.

I wish I could be  in the christmas spirit flourishes style...but alas, no christmas tags for me since I still don't own a christmas set from them!  Eventually I guess!...

flourishes double embossing challenge

I was moved....for the first time in months to make a few cards. The flourishes blog challenge was to double emboss and although I have seen this done, seen the tutorials before, I have never tried it and wanted to make a card for a friend who we visited this past weekend (after not seeing each other for a YEAR!!! Yep, we only live 3 hrs apart! How sad are we! Kids really get in the way of things sometimes!
Anyways, I made a flourishes card using only sentiments from cherries/peaches set of theirs. I am hoping to be the lucky one who wins....I would really love to get a new set from them partly for free! I don't have a christmas set from them and would really love a few of them. So cross your fingers for me!
I used a cuttlebug folder and a spellbinder label to double emboss (check out splitcoast for a tutorial...or a link from the flourishes blog post)
Although I didn't do much on the inside, I did emboss the sentiment in bronze (as I did on the sentiment on the outside) I thought the quote "true friends grow separtely without growing apart" is perfect for us because although we NEVER talk and rarely see each other...whenever we visit, it is just as if nothing had ever changed or is uncomfortable. Love that. I intend to make our visits much more frequent...especially since my 6 yr old really enjoyed her 3yr old!
I also made a christmas card with the same double emboss technique using papertrey ink stamp set called in the meadow. LOVE THIS SET! Will see many christmas card this year using this set!

Proposed tunic top

Alex has 7 random pieces of clothing and this is the 3rd top I am making to match and expand her wardrobe.

it is an ottobre pattern from the 6/10 issue.  I am making it in a 122 size (euro) which is actually a little too big but she grows out of her tops fast since she has a long torso.

hoping to get it finished tonight or tomorrow.

Froggie Birthday-Masculine

I am trying really hard to make several boyish or masculine cards since I tend to only make girly ones. This froggie is a digi from all that scraps and I love him! fun, plus can be for girls or boys or men! Yea for versatile!
pale yellow green CS base is from Papertrey ink along with the tag die/stamp from tiny tags.
Froggie is colored with YG 17, 3, 1 copics along with the balloon too. print paper is from colorbok "english moss' that I just got from Joannes on Thursday.
That paper had been sitting with a few other items bought with birthday money on my desk....mocking me....waiting for me to play, but I couldn't get away till today to actually create something with my new stuff! Still haven't broken in my punches, but I will get to those very very soon!
No....the balloon is not like that. My printer went crazy...don't know what happened, but another printed normal, but I colored the frog so nice that I wasn't going to do it over again.

Halloween card

This card is for the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge of spooky cards...well, I don't have any of the halloween stamps, so I had to improvise. Since Drucilla here is a little crazed with her little Pins in her friend, I figured she would work out nicely for the halloween card. I never make halloween this brought me out of my comfort zone. I had the skull/crossbones paper from Hobby Lobby a long time ago....and had even had this stamp in mind when I bought it! The Orange cs is embossed with my cutting plate for my cuttlebug (yep, weird, but makes a nice texture without being overly strong) Distessed the edges of both cs. I used a spellbinder label die and the out of box technique.
The Layout is based on the Sketch on Sketch Saturday.
copics in YR's and C's

Negative Space Baby Boy Card

My Friend just had a baby boy on Tuesday morning and I needed a card! I used the challenge over at Charisma Cardz challenge for the use of negative space where at least 2/3rds of the card is to be blank. This ends up being perfect because in order to get my husband to sign it, the card did need to be nice and plain.
BG copics colored the Hippo from a TAC stamp set that starts with silly, but I can't remember the rest of the name. The sentiment and tag die comes from Papertrey Ink tiny tags. The Grey ribbon is SU taffeta from forever ago! I also entered this into the Blue Greens Challenge at the Copic creations challenge.

Flourishes Cherries and Peaches set provides the image, colored with copics Rs and YGs. Cut out with Spellbinders using the out of box techinque and Sponged with antique linen distress ink.

DCWV red textured cardstock for both, all distressed with timholtz vintage photo distress ink and the ribbon is from RABOM (ribbons and bows oh brown satin.

Hope you like! thanks for looking!

Flourish CASE challenge

Challenge of the CASE a flourishes designer or someone who is a friend or the such.

Here is the card I cased....Honestly, I really had a hard time finding one I wanted to case as I have become a more simple card maker and am not into too much stuff on my cards. They are lovely, but I have a hard time taking gorg cards and simplifing... I think it is the influence of my husband who prefers it that way....and since my 6yr old loves everything I make, is the the only adult critic I show things to on a frequent basis! :) I live to please! :)

Flourishes Peaches stamp set with SU cardstock and designer paper from a scrap kit....probably from long ago. Michaels cheap orange satin ribbon....twine that found on Amazon for cheap to make my order up to a 25$ to get my free shipping :) hehe... the tag is a sticker from the SU kit also. Copics were YG 03, 17, 67--YR 07, 04 and some other one or two.

Image cut out with Out of Box technique with spellbinder label and backed with the same die.

Lily Celebration!

I made this card for another of the birthdays we have coming up in a few days. My sister in la I think will enjoy this one!

Main image from Flourishes colored with copics R90s or is it 80s...85, 83, 81 I guess
cut out with a spellbinder and edged in stickles.

Both the pink and striped paper is from a TAC (the angel company) that is old and I used it from the leftovers from a series of scrapbook pages I made.

Green CS is wasabi from SU and the embossing is a cuttlebug folder swiss dots.
The pink dots are from michaels long ago and were not even rom the scrapping section!

Bright and Beachy Birthday Card!

In about 2 weeks our families will be coming together to celebrate 8 birthdays for June and July....and I will need several girly cards and felt inspired to actually create!

My card features K and company patterned paper (summery set on clearance forever ago.)

Silver cord on the right hand side from SU.

The Mermaid from Kraftin Kimmie is colored in Copics and mounted on pumpkin SU cardstock.

3 random brown rhinestones from clearance somewhere.

Tag made from Papertrey Ink die with "wish big" stamped 4 times from the matching "Tiny Tags" Stamp Set.

The Happy Birthday sentiment at the top is from Papertrey Ink set "Its a Celebration"

I love this card. Bright and Cheery, sunny and Beachy and Fun and not too busy that my husband didn't like it!

Beachy challenge from Totally Papercrafts Challenge--I added the sand so she would be beachin it under the sea....closest stamp I had for a beachy scene.

My craftin Mojo just finally came back after my copic class at my local stamp store and have actually kept making things. I made several items after the monday class, then here today I made little mermaid and started several other items! Thanks for looking!

Papertrey Challenge: Make it Monday #21

Challenged to do a Polaroid 2step masking.

I did 2 because my first doesn't show the technique as well, but I still loved the card that I finished it and have a plan for the person I am going to send it to! Out on a Limb stamp set from PaperTrey Ink, along with the sentiment and die cut from there also. Tiny tags or something. Cuddlebug folder on the Brown SU cardstock embossing....looks like twigs. Both Inks for the Branches/Berries are Tim Holtz Distress Inks (vintage photo and lipstick stain) And finished off with twine I got from

HERE is the challenge and her sample, and video tutorial of how to do it!

Green Card is unknown cardstock, migh be SU, Kraft CS and Stamp set is Masculine Motifs from Papertrey Ink. The kids and I went on a nature hike and saw several blue dragon flies and lots of green leafs, so that is the inspiration for this card. I never have manly cards hanging around, so I am making the effort with this birthday card.

Thanks for looking!

Sympathy Cards

Just a few days ago, an old friend's grandparent died. I have been feeling for her since I lost my own sister in October. Alhough I don't think I have talked to her since High School, she is on facebook with me and I felt moved to make something to send to her. I don't know if I ca find her address, but at the least, I could send it to her parent's house and it would eventually make it her way.

Entering into the Saturday Challenge found here...for dry or heat embossing, of which, I have both!

This is the first completed card that I have made in over 2 months....or maybe more. Hard to tell. Life starts to blurr together when you have 3 kids @ 2, 4, and 6!

I was inspired by a blog from Papertrey Ink at this post. A jungle I did not I used the background style like her with my copics, similar but not exact colors (my collection is large, but not "I have hundreds of followers of my blog" large!).

Top to bottom the colors of mine are BG 49, BG 10, YG03, YG17, BG15

I did use the Stampin Up Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the Papertrey Ink Out on a limb for the sentiment. I think it turned out as a nice clean and simple but stunning card. thank you Nichole Heady for your inspiration/case! to google and see if I can find her address or send off an email to find it! :) Thanks for looking!

SO long since my posting!! Lilly's Romper from Ottobre 3/11

It has really be long since my last posting. Not that I haven't been creating....just not posting!

I have made several things for the girls and I am not even sure that I have taken pictures of them all! Here is the latest. The Sea Shell Romper from the 3/11 Ottobre. I left off the pockets due to the busy nature of the fabric and only had enough rickrack for the bodice and not around the legs. This was the first time that I had ever put on rickrack and glad that I decided wasn't that hard, actually kinda easy. And it really makes it look so much nicer! Kinda professional!

I haven't been making cards. That is on my list to, but I have been makng clothes for the girls since their summer clothes have been limited. I also have been making scrapbook pages. I am super far behind on scrapping! I have not finished my 4yr old's first year of scrapping! Boy am I behind. Bt little by little, I will get the past done....and eventually catch up on the more current stuff.

Sewing DAY!!!

First off I thought I needed to make Alexandra an Easter dress. She has NO clothes right now. I think the clothes that I have made for her makeup the majority of her wardrobe. She had no dresses that were spring like. I grabbed a few fabrics and offered Alex her choice and she picked the blue and purple option. So, I grabbed the newest Ottobre the summer 3/11 issue that I got on Tuesday....I think. I traced the pattern called Tropical blend in european size 104 (all the while LIl in nap and ALex and Isaac outside playing.) and cut the fabric. Did the whole piping and did a rolled hem to keep the extra length....and be quicker of course. I did metal snaps at the shoulders instead of buttons.

Of course, my darling girl is not very modest, so I grabbed the 1/11 ottobre issue and traced off the cinnamon leggins and cut those out of yellow cotton/lycra (yellow in centers of the flowers on the dress) in size 104, length of the 110. I made cuffs for the waist and the legs to be faster and not have to break out the coverstitch (more b/c I didn't want to change the threads!).

So....Lilly wakes up and the Easter outfit is completed. We make dinner from the leftover chili from Fridays lunch.....and I thread the serger tails back into the seams while waiting for Lilly and Isaac to finish eating before we had dessert....all done.

BUT....the sewing bug bit me hard...and I cut out the Cocos ruffle skirt pattern from the 1/11 ottobre and take some chez ami stretch twill and I got all done with that skirt except the waist ...waiting for some elastic once I can try it on Alex. See the almost adorable skirt below

Plum Tree Ottobre Dress for Lilly with Amy Butler

I have had this cut out for Lilly for 6months and last night and today I have gotten it finished.

I did a little bit of changing from the original pattern from the Finish pattern magazine Ottobre, issue 03/10

I changed the ribbon design from being vertical to horizontal and placed the buttons in the same place. I omitted the pockets since I thought the fabric design was busy enough without pockets adding distraction.

The buttons are from my mother's collection of mother of pearl buttons that she has gathered over many years. The lacy trim is from walmart...I purchased it for card making and scrapbooking, but I like the way it looked with the fabric when I was trying to figure out what trims I had to match.

You can see from the closeup that I still have work to do and much room for improvement when you see the zipper at the back. The rest of the dress came together easily, but I am still not very good on zippers.

Sonic the Hedgehog Applique Tshirt

Here is what I made for Isaac for his birthday. Boy gets so many wonderful great shape hand me downs that he is never in need, so I only make him something for his birthay...and this year he has been into Sonic the Hedgehog in a crazy way. I think he has gotten 4 games this year and one for the gameboy in addition. However, there is no great way to find Sonic I made him one!

First, I went online and found a picture that looked easy to copy. I found this picture where it was meant to teach how to draw sonic.

I printed out the picture, cut out the different color parts, white, black, blue parts.

I then used them as patterns to cut out the WONDER UNDER, (kinda like iron on double sided sticky tape for fabic).

Ironed the pieces onto the right color fabric, peeled off the back of the wonder under (now stuck to the correct colored fabric) and started to iron on the white and black parts onto the blue head, then ironed on the whole thing onto the front panel of the grey shirt I had cut out to make for him.

(the shirt was an ottobre pattern from the 06/09 issue for jammies but it fits him nicely and it was already traced out and ready to go.

Stablizer used for embroidery and appliques was put on the back and pinned on.

Sewed a tight zig zag around the outside of sonic, then changed color of threads, and did the whites and followed by the blacks.

Assembled the shirt and volia, Isaac's Sonic the Hedgehog shirt for his birthday.

I started making the sonic part while the kids were doing crafts (baby in nap), then did all the outline sewing and putting together the shirt after kids were in bed. One day project. Although, the shirt fabric had been cut out (waiting and waiting for me to make something!!!) I was late on it. I made it ON his birthday, and he wore it the next day at school.

Up and Away Birthday!

I have been inspired by several challeges today....

The cardstock is Stampin Up, dewdrops are fakes from Michaels. Aqua paper and patterned paper I got from TAC years ago, called a little Whimsy. Perfect for the color challenge!! I used Copics to color in the Lili of the Valley stamp, which is my first time using him! So cute! (c03,05-bg000, 02, 05--yg01, 03, 17-v09, 06)

Black brads was from SU when I was a demo, which was before i was a mother! And my oldest is 5.5yrs old!!! Come to think of it, all my SU stuff is that old! I have only bought black, metallic and white cs and have never had to buy more color CS because I had bought so much as a demo!!

Sweet Windswept Spring Birthday

It has been a long time since I have been craftin and I almost didn't get to make anything today because I couldnt find my C pad for my cuttlebug!!!! Grrrr....but I found it under my nose and I got busy.

Today, I have been challenged by THE SUGAR BOWL to use a sketch, BELLS AND WHISTLES and MAGICAL MONDAYS to think spring, and KABOODLE DOODLES for a birthday card.

This card will be for my mother, whose birthday is in April and she loves green. Although I used brown, those greens/yellows just make it scream spring to me!

Sugar Nellie image Windswept stamped on Papertrey Ink CS colored in copics (YG00,01,03, 17 and E30, 33 35), cut out with a Spellbinder die

Distress inks anique linen around edges and image and sentient. Distress ink Walnut stain is the sentiment, from Gina K.

Cardstock is all from SU, cuttlebug embossed, sewn on, and faux Michaels dewdrops

Thanks for looking. Hoping that tonight I will make two others, either masculine or boyish or kinda neutral!

Lili of the Valley Stamps AND a Clean and Simple Birthday

  • Today I made 2 cards, one with my NEW Lili of the Valley Stamps from the UK and one with Papertrey Ink "In Celebration" stamp set.
  • The first is this adorable little gal, whom is colored with copics (r20, 24, 27) and I used tip to tip technique since I didn't have the R22 color to blend well. I think it went rather nicely. I learned this at a 4 hr copic class from a certified copic gal Dionne (her blog here)

  • CS is from SU, patterned paper is DCWV Whimsy stack, silver satin ribbon from Michaels, silver embossing, sewing machine, Spellbinders circle, big scallops and fancy tags. Sentiment is from Gina K along with the oval stamp around it. Embellished with faux dew drops from Michaels. Stickles on wings, wand and antaneas are "icicles". I love the end look. She is just so stinkin adorable!

Challenges entered:

  • The Clean and Simple card is for my husband's birthday which is in 5 days and must be simple because he doesn't like a bunch of stuff. All stamping from the Papertrey Ink set mentioned above. Silver paper is from a package of shimmer paper from Michaels. Silver embossing, black ribbon from Michaels and that is about all for this one!

Challenges Entered into

MY GOAL for MARCH: Make 2 cards "not girly" for ever 1 that I make girly. I did make two of the CAS today, the other has a different sentiment and is going into the donated to Kindergarten gift basket for a raffle later this month.

I just find that I make what I love the most, but need to branch out into cards that other people might enjoy also. . . and I enjoy making them, but it is not my passion.

1/11 Ottobre harem pants

European Size 80 using Michael Miller /patty young aqua interlock knit.

I made this for Lilly to match the purple fleece top she is pictured in.

Of course all the other kids had to get into the picture...and it made Lilly happy and willing to pose, so I used them.

Observations on pattern:
I believe the name of these pants are Acrobatics. The waist is too loose....but that might be the type of knit that I used. Lilly is perfectly sized at the 80 by measurements..all of them, but the length of the pants is *almost* too short. So if you are making them, make sure to measure your inseam so you are not left with MC hammer capris....

Although unusual, I do like them on my 19 month old. Not sure if I would try to do these for my 5 yr old, she might be too picky about the style.

Lovely Charlotte Birthday card

I just recently got Charlotte from the Kraftin Kimmie birthday sale. I have always just loved her and now that my 18m baby girl is now starting to love on baby dolls, well, it is even more perfect!
I actually had her done and almost ready to put on the card for last week's challenge, but never could make it look quite she just sat unfinished most of the week on my desk. So I decided to just hurry up, and make it into a challenge card for this week, which is a sketch...can view here.
Stripe paper from KandCompany stack from summer. Green and brown CS from SU. Green CS embossed with a cuttlebug folder. Brown cs cut with Nestie. Happy Birthday stamp from GIna K designs, and of course Charlotte has bee colored with copics.
She will also be put into the Kindergarten "keep in touch" basket that will be in the auction at the carnival at Alexandra's school.

Apple Thank you

A thank you card with the main image from Flourishes and entered into their challenge which was use 3 pattern papers. I colored the image with copics and since the apples and flowers were warm colors, I entered it into the Copic Creation Challenge also. I actually used 2, the brown diecut with a nestie and the tag that has the sentiment on it was a wood grain pattern. I created a patterned paper with cuttlebug and then distressed it. bright. I also used the diamond pattern or checks...which is the challenge over at Totally Gorjuss Challenge.
The green cs is from SU, the pattern papers from DCWV recycled pack. Sentiment is from Gina K designs. All the papers were distressed using Tim Holtz inks...walnut and main image with linen. The ABC challenge was to make old-fashioned and that is what I used the distressing inks I liked how it toned down the green, which was very bright. I think it was the green galore!
This card will be put in a basket for a "keep in touch" theme at my oldest child's kindergarten class. It will be in an auction at the carnival. Hope people like what I am doing!

Celebrate Sugar Bowl Style!!

Today I was able to get to the crafting area. So nice of those people to leave me all alone for just a LITTLE while. Not long, but long enough to make a card for a few challenges!
Image is Sugar Nellie colored with copics
Sentiment is a freebie from TAC-embossed in black.
Pattern paper is from DCWV old world mat stack.
CS is black SU and unknown white! :)
Ruffled black ribbon from RABOM

Lillth in love....

Made for Valentines day and several challenges, here is Lilth in love.
Kraftin Kimmie stamp colored with copics, peach paper unkown CS, patterned paper is an old DCWV old I don't know when and the stack fell apart a long while ago.
Because she is in love and a valentine.... I sponged distess ink in worn lipstick around her. What a nice rosey glow of love it made. I just got it yesterday, so I had to use it!!! I was very excited!
Her feet stick out just a tad from the circle nestie by using the out of the box technique found on splitcoast
The peach cardstock was lightly sponged with distress ink walnut stain. Helps it stand out more as the peach was too pale.
The chocolate chip CS from SU is sponged over a template of tim holtz's with a flourish. I used the walnut stain again. Very faint but adds some texture without being overwhelming. This might be for my darling Husband, and he doesn't like too much crazy stuff on cards. Whenever he watches as I browse on blog hops or whatnot, he often "scoffs" at the over embellished cards....and only seems to allow it at christmas. He is odd....I guess, or I am...who knows!
The "love" stamp is from TAC and was sponged with walnut and the circle is a faux brad was made by using the stencil's tag that had a hole to hang it on the hook at the self...and sponged again in walnut.
Entering in several challenges:

Flourishes--Winter Thaw...looking forward to spring!

I don't really have the flowers that BREAK through the snow...but at least I do have a spring flower that I always look forward to. We have 5 lilac bushes in our yard and we constantly have them on our dining table during the summer. It helps that my littlens love to pick things! :)
I also used to colors from the challenge as well.
Green, black, purple CS from SU
Copic markers
cuttlebug folder
ricrack from my local sewing shop
SU retired black organdy ribbon
Antique linen distress ink
No sentiment as I am unsure what I am going to use this for...or whom...but I promise I will not hord it as I am trying to do an anit hording thing as a new years res... no hording calories, fat, paper, food (overstocking...dont forsee a drought or grocery store collaspe coming...) and of course, the cards I make. I have a hard time giving them away...don't know why. mine mine mine. Guess I am just a bit selfish....or worried they will not treasure them as I do, or won't like them....which would be worse! Anyways....thanks for looking!

Piggy Birthday

This card is for my sister in law who has a birthday. I will write a happy birthday greeting on the inside that refers to her age and how surprising it is to make it kinda humorous. She is into country and lives on a pigs, but she did grow up with them.... Hope its not offensive! :)

They Sleep.....I stamped AGAIN!!! Valentine Card for Challenges

The 2 little ones have been sleeping really I have two posts in one day!

Drucilla from Kraftin Kimmie has been stamped in momento ink and colored in copics.

She is cut out and mounted on an old patterned paper from DCWV stack, cut out/embossed with spellbinder label nestie.

I embossed the sentiment from Flouishes (From lilac or waterlillies stamp sets...have both sets in a case) in silver and layered on SU dk brown CS.

Two more patterned papers, kinda unknown.... are layered under.

I love how she turned out. I wish I had pewter colored embossing powder to show up more, but I love it anyways, I think it compliments the corner bling....was going to put a hardware corner in pewter in the bottom right corner, but decided against it.
Entered into Challenges:

I used the Sketch from Truely Scrumptous Challenge.
Have hearts (dots are hearts and teddy has one!) from 7 kids college fund challenge.
Papertake challenged us to have flowers--on the paper...
And finally, Stamping for the weekend challenged us to "warm it up"...I think hearts, warm colors and...well, Drucilla always warms my heart with her slightly crazed loving smile/look! :)
