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 Amazon.com

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 have...so 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!

Now...off 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 to....it 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.
