A snowflake of Thankfulness

Just wanted to share a card I made for a friend. She is so sweet and passes to me all the clothes that her two boys outgrow. She needed a thank you card and wanted it to have a winter feel. I was wracking my brain when I saw this fabulous card on Pinterest and had a brain surge! I loved it and finally got to use my new snowflake dies by Spellbinders. Here is my CASE on the card by Amy Kolling.

Isn't it fun? I am so glad that I had my new metal shim makes these snowflakes a breeze to do now! The sentiment is from Think Big Favorites #19 Mini Set by Papertrey Ink. I love the little mini sets. They are always so beautiful and for just $5.00, quite the steal!

I think I will be playing on this layout and idea for other cards. I would love to see what I can do with other dies in my collection.

Fancy Folds and Fall

Hey ya'll! I'm on vacation, but I wanted to make sure I posted my creation for this week's new challenge on Sentimental Sundays and Paper Sundaes Challenge Blogs! For Sentimental Sundays we want to see Fancy Folds used with your required sentiment. Bust out all those fabulous tutorials that you've been dying to try! Maybe you could mix it with this week's challenge of Halloween/Fall for Paper Sundaes...I did!

Our sponsor of the week for Paper Sundaes is the always awesome

 I used fabulous fall paper (retired Stampin Up) to make this card--it's a Box Card! Very cool and fun to fold--and not very complicated! It only took me two tries to get it right! LOL! You can find the tutorial HERE. I recommend watching the video because the written directions are slightly confusing without it.
All closed up with belly band on...
Belly band off and with it opened. I added a little insert card to write a message.

It lays flat measuring 4 1/4" square--perfect for mailing in a regular envelope!

I used "Pondering Magnolia" one my favorite Magnolia images (SSS carries an extensive collection of them) and I paired her with a great sentiment from Verve. The darling little leaf gem was in a package in a $1 bin at Michaels! I really love the way this card turned out and can't wait to send it to someone!

We hope you will play with us at Sentimental Sundays (Fancy Folds) and Paper Sundaes (Halloween/Fall) this week!

Card Details
Stamps: Pondering Matilda (Magnolia); Thanks (Verve)
Ink: Soft Suede (SU), Tuxedo Black (memento)

From the bottom of my heart...

I needed to make a thank you card for all the people at our church congregation who helped me with various things at the wedding...and I knew the perfect sentiment to use...So I opted to go with the September Diva Dare for Verve Stamps and "CASE-a-Diva".

There are so many fabulous Verve Diva's...many with cards I couldn't even begin to CASE in a million years...but there is one diva that always makes projects that are simple and elegant. Needless to say I didn't waste time looking at any other diva's gallery--I just went straight to Moe's (aka. Maureen Plut). It was like being in a candy store!! But I saw the "perfect" card for me--her "the Most Room In Your Heart" card. Simple lines. Beautiful. Perfect!

So here is my CASE...

I went out of my normal color comfort zone and used Lime Green and White...I have been hanging onto this paper FOREVER and finally used it. Seriously. It was like one of the first sheets I ever bought! The sentiment is from the amazingly touching set Words Cannot Express. I added some polka dot lime ribbon and used my Threading Water punch. A few gems and stitching around the edge. DONE! One of my fastest cards ever! But when you have the beautiful cards by Moe as inspiration, it's like a shot of Mojo!

Merci, Mon Cheri!

Have you checked out the BRAND NEW January Card Kit "Mon Cheri" by Paper Makeup Stamps released last night? Oo-La-La! The paper is absolutely divine and the stamps are spectacular!

Here is another glimpse of two of the stamps available EXCLUSIVELY in this kit!

I just love how sweet Cheri looks there with the Eiffle Tower behind her...just enjoying life. Once again I decided to pull out the Kraft paper for some watercoloring. I'm enjoying reaquainting myself with this delightful medium, so I need to go ahead and purchase some watercolor paper so I can have more options. I kept the card simple keeping the pink as merely a splash of color with my Kraft and Black.

This sentiment is one of FOUR French phrases that come in this card kit...perfect for adding a bit of international flair to your cards. I didn't own ANY international language sets, so this was just lovely! I'm sure you will be seeing them A LOT in the future.

Card Details
Stamps: Cheri and "Merci"--January Card Kit (Paper Makeup Stamps)
Ink: Onyx Black (Ancient Page), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Coloring: watercolor pencils w/blender pen
Paper: Kraft/Crumb Cake, Basic Black (Stampin Up)
Accessories: scoring tool, black satin ribbon, "stardust" stickles and pink adhesive gems

Makeup 4 the Weekend #54: Thankful

It's hard to believe it's already December 24th. Where HAS this year gone to? I hope you all have a safe and wonderful weekend with your family and friends!

Most of you are going to be receiving some FABULOUS goodies this weekend...which makes this week's Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge #54 over on the Paper Makeup Stamps blog the perfect one for you to enter! This week's challenge is brought to us courtesy of Makeup Artist Anita Hovey! Anita's challenge for you is to make a Christmas themed Thank You card to thank someone for a present you received. If you don't celebrate Christmas, then feel free to adapt this challenge to fit what you are comfortable with.

I don't celebrate Christmas,  so I decided to use a Christmas color (Red) and make a generic Thank You card.

I used this week's sketch #121 from the Clean&Simple blog for my layout. I have featured beautiful Isabella...definitely one of my favorites in the Beautiful Day Fairy collection by Paper Makeup Stamps. I have paired her with a sentiment from the Everyday Thanks set also by PMS.

I ran the Real Red layer through my Cuttlebug using my Textile embossing folder. Isabella's dress has dabs of Clear Spicca on it to make it shimmer. The silver trim is something new that I found yesterday in the ribbon section at my Walmart. It's very pretty and delicate--perfect for a hint of silver! The colors I used are also this week's Color Combination #302
I know that many of you are going to get some fabulous new crafting goodies...maybe even some new Paper Makeup Stamps why not play along? PMS stamps aren't necessary for our challenges...and you know you have Thank You's to create and play with us! Upload your creation to Mr. Linky on today's post on the challenge blog. If you are uploading to a gallery like SCS or PCP, add the tag M4TW54 so we can find it!

A Sentimental Thanks

Good morning! It's another Sunday and that means another Sentimental Sunday Challenge! This week's challenge is appropriate for this time of year...Challenge #30's theme is Thanks or Thanksgiving. As usual, you can create anything you want for the theme, you just have to make sure you include a sentiment!

I just had to make another card using my new Ella Blue paper pad. I fell in love with all the papers when making my grandparent's 60th anniversary card and couldn't wait to pull them out again. The layout for this card was inspired by the card on page 74 of the latest CardMaker Magazine (November 2010). It was simple and perfect for a quick card. The sentiment is by Paper Makeup Stamps and is part of the Everyday Thanks sentiment set. I tweaked this two line sentiment by stamping it all in a row.

I hope that you will play along with our Sentimental Sundays challenge this week. Remember that we are now awarding a Top 3 badge and a random participant will be chosen to win our prize. Just go to today's blog post and add your NEW creation and if you are uploading to SCS or PCP make sure to add sentimentalsundays to your tag list!

Check back later today for my Paper Sundaes Challenge post!

Gratefully Clean and Simple

I'm still knocking out all the thank you cards that I owe people for various reasons relating to my son's birth; therefore, I'm sticking with some clean and simple designs that I can replicate quickly. My card today was inspired by the Happy Haunting Card on page 36 of the latest Paper Crafts Magazine (Sept/Oct 2010). I kept the layout...just changed everything else!
The color theme is for CAS81 (Kraft, Turquoise and White). The dandelion image is from the Dandy Wishes set by Paper Makeup Stamps. I used Stickles (Stardust) to bling up the dandelions. The "Grateful" stamp is from a random Studio G $1 set that I snagged at Michaels ages ago.

Card Details

Stamps: Dandy Wishes (PMS), "Grateful" (Studio G)
Ink: Temping Turquoise and Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up)
Paper: CS-Crumb Cake/Kraft, Tempting Turquoise (Stampin' Up), White (Georgia Pacific); DP-from a DCWV pad
Accessories/Tools: brown brads, Stickles, "Threading Water" border punch (Fiskars), dimensionals

Don't forget that the Paper Makeup Stamps September Release Sneaks will start in just 3 more days on Saturday, September 4th! You don't want to miss it!

Thoughtfulness for CAS80

This week's Clean and Simple (CAS80) for Splitcoaststampers is to use THIS card as a sketch inspiration. It was perfect for giving me a jump start on a bunch of Thank You cards that I need to get out to people who have been so sweet to my family regarding the celebration of our new son Justin. I didn't change much from the original card, so not only is it a CAS card, but I guess that makes it a CASE (copy and "steal/share" everything) as well.

The first two cards I went with an earthy feel using Kraft/Crumb Cake with Always Artichoke. I matched it with some paper featuring a fern design and then added the twine for my sole embellishment. The third card is just a simple design using a combo of Kraft/Crumb Cake with Tempting Turquoise. All these cards feature one of the stamps from the set Everyday Thanks by Paper Makeup Stamps, my go-to set for any Thank You cards.

Card #1 and #2 Recipe
Stamps: Everyday Thanks (PMS)
Ink: Soft Suede (Stampin Up)
Paper: CS- Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke (SU); DP- fern paper from stash
Accessories/Tools: twine, "Threading Water" border punch (Fiskars)

Card #3 Recipe
Stamps: Everyday Thanks (PMS)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up)
Paper: CS-Crumb Cake and Tempting Turquoise (SU); DP-DCWV paper pad
Accessories/Tools: turquoise satin ribbon, "Threading Water" border punch (Fiskars)

Thank you is so easy...

I'm still here and pregnant. We really were hoping that the full moon this weekend would help the process along, but I guess my little guy wants to stay warm and toasty for a bit longer. This is giving me some more time to take care of knocking out a few more cards before he comes demanding my full attention!

As you all know, I am ALWAYS on the look out for quick and simple designs for cards. I found yet another one when checking out the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS181) over on Splitcoaststampers this week. This week's featured stamper is Ravengirl! Her gallery is amazing and before this challenge, I had already added a lot of her cards to my favorites collection. But when I saw THIS CARD, I knew I had one more to try!

I actually made two versions of this card tonight, but am only sharing with you one of them. This little card measures 4 1/4" square making it a perfect compliment to a gift! I actually made this card for a piano student of mine. Her family gave me the cutest little baby boy outfits today. This card just whipped right out for them. The sentiment featured is from the Everyday Thanks set by Paper Makeup Stamps.
Card Details
Stamps: Everyday Thanks (PMS)
Ink: Old Olive (Stampin' Up)
Paper: CS- Old Olive (Stampin' Up) and White (Georgia Pacific; DP-"Jr. Varsity" (Stampin' Up)
Accessories/Tools: Scalloped Squares Small Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug Machine, Fabric Daisy (Martha Stewart)

Hopefully we'll have a baby announcement soon! But if not, I'll just keep plugging away at cards to share with you before my dry spell!

Just a few little things...

Hello to all my friends in the blogging world! It's getting a bit hectic around here as things are pregressing towards the arrival of my I haven't been able to do any new posts since Wednesday. The results of my doctors appointment showed that my mom needed to change her plane ticket and come in 5 days earlier than scheduled, so she flew in last night. Today I've had serious sharp pains and lost my plug, so things are obviously moving foward. It's just a matter of when the big event will happen! So if I disappear for awhile, it's probably because I'm HAVING A BABY! LOL! But I'm taking my laptop with us to the hospital, so I can update once the event happens.
So to tide you over, I just have a couple random projects that I whipped up yesterday...
These are just some simple notecards. I stamped the inside with "Just a note", one of the stamps by Paper Makeup Stamps.

This is a set of SUPER easy and simple notecards. I stamped them with two of the stamps in the Everyday Thanks set by Paper Makeup Stamps.

I really love these little altered composition books I made! They are SUPER easy to make with just three pieces of paper (3" x 4 1/2"), some ribbon and the set of 3 notebooks ($1 at Dollar General). I dressed it up with three of my border punches: Parisian (EK Success), ZigZag (Martha Stewart) and Dotted Wave (EK Success). I used coordinating pattern paper for these that I just ADORE! I have got to get some sheets of it when I got back to Hobby Lobby.

So there you go. Three simple little projects that take no time at all to make!

Wish me luck for the weekend! We are hoping it's a baby weekend!

Not your typical cards...

I'm just taking it easy today, which means LOTS of crafty time! I just have to remember to put a stool under my feet when sitting at my craft desk. The cards for me to share today aren't your typical cards. The first one is a Spring Card and the second one is an Envelope card. I enjoy making both of these styles because they are out of the ordinary, but still fit inside normal envelopes. You can click on those links to be taken to the tutorials.

My Spring Card

I used the coordinating paper from the Fall Flowers Designer Paper by Stampin' Up. I recently purchased the Sahara Sand cardstock and I really like the color. I added Kaiserkraft white pearls to the base and underneath the sentiment. The sentiment is from the For Everything set by SU. I always like to add a plain piece of cardstock to the back side of the top portion so that I can write a personal message and it helps the stability of the card.

My Envelope Card

This is one of my favorite ways to send little things in the mail. As long as you keep everything fairly light and flat, you can send all sorts of goodies. I made another one of these cards last week to send my dad and brother some guitar picks. It worked perfectly! The little bird is from the same For Everything set and that paper is from a $1 pack I found at Michaels a long time ago.

Spring Card Details
Stamps: For Everything (Stampin' Up)
Ink: Old Olive (SU)
Paper: CS-Old Olive, Sahara Sand (SU), White (Georgia Pacific); DP-"Fall Flowers" (SU)
Accessories/Tools: ribbon, white pearls (Kaiserkraft)

Envelope Card Details
Stamps: For Everything (SU)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Coloring: Copics (YG01, YG03, W00, C1)

Paper: CS-Basic Black (SU), White (GP); DP-from stash
Accessories/Tools: Classic Squares Large Nestabilties (Spellbinders), small lunch bag

If you haven't ever tried either of these card designs, you should! They really aren't that hard at all!

Makeup 4 the Weekend #33:Lookin' Thru your Window

Happy almost 4th of July to you! It's another Friday and that means it's time for a new Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge! Today's challenge on the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog is to make a Window Card.

My window card is about as simple as you can get, but I just didn't have the mojo for something more elaborate this time. I decided to have my window card feature a quote instead of an image. This sentiment is from the Everyday Thanks set by Paper Makeup Stamps.

Card Details
Everyday Thanks (PMS)
Ink: Old Olive (Stampin' Up)
Paper: CS-Old Olive (SU) and White (GP); DP-Fall Flowers (SU)
Accessories/Tools: Labels 8 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), pearls (Kaiserkraft), olive satin ribbon, dimensionals

I hope you will play along with us this week! Remember that you don't have to use PMS stamps to play, so get inky! Make sure you add a link to your creation to Mr. Linky on the post for today and add the keyword M4TW33 to your tags for SCS or PCP!

Thank you for the difference you made in my life

Afternoon all my lovely blurfers (aka. blog surfers)! I hope you are all having good weeks and that the rest of your week goes well too! Those of you suffering in the heat like me...just stay cool!!!

Here is my third entry for the Verve June Release Challenges. This one is for Challenge #1 (VSJUNJAN) and is based on the VLV January Week #1 sketch.

I just love this new paper. It's the "Sweet Always" Designer series paper by Stampin' Up. I wished I had ordered more of it when I got it because it was on clearance...but I didn't know how much I was going to love it! What's not to love about Chocolate Chip, Pinks and Pumpkin Pie together??? This card has LOTS of favorite! I used the Verve set Because of You for the flowers and sentiments on this card.

Card Details
5 1/4" square
Stamps: Because of You (Verve)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up)
Paper: CS-Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette (SU) and white (GP); DP- "Sweet Always" (SU)
Accessories/Tools: Labels 8 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), "Swiss Dots" embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Cuttlebug Machine, fingertip dauber, brown metal brads

That makes three of the challenges down and just two to go! I am sure I can get them done today, so stay tuned for more Verve! And don't forget to check back tomorrow for the next Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge from Paper Makeup Stamps! And then in just a little over a week it will be SNEAKS for the PMS JULY RELEASE! I am in love with SEVERAL of the new stamps for July and I KNOW you will fall in love with them too!

Two-in-One...ICS and CC272

It's Wednesday! Can you believe that it's already the second day of June?? The 6th month? Which means the year 2010 is already half over! Shocking, isn't it? And June means SUMMER!!! Woot! I love a lot of the aspects of summer. I would enjoy it more if I wasn't finishing up a pregnancy...LOL! Oh well!

This card is for two challenges, which is where I got the layout and the color theme. The colors are for the Color Combination Challenge #272 for Splitcoaststampers (CC272). The color combination was Bermuda Bay, Real Red and Kraft. I really love the way these colors look together. I'm soooo glad I just ordered two packs of Bermuda Bay cardstock! (ps. It's 50% off right now!!) Now I just need to get more Real Red. The layout is for Inspirational Card Sketches Pick-your-own-Sketch Challenge for this week. We were told to pick a past sketch from ICS history. I chose ICS #63.

It's a very nice straightforward sketch. I love any sketch that is mostly squares, even though I can do nearly any shape now. LOL! I opted against designer paper for this card, choosing to dry emboss using my newest Cuttlebug embossing folder "Victoria". Can we say love at first use???? It is going to be used A LOT!

The sentiment is by Paper Makeup Stamps from the set Everyday Thanks. I added the butterflies at the last minute just to give it some more detail. I hope they aren't too much. I even pulled out my Red and Black Spicca pens to add just a smidge faint bit of sparkle. Red over the red letters and the black for the butterflies.

The inside of this card is decorated a little wonky. But wonky can sometimes look alright. LOL! I *had* to use the Victoria EF again...right? LOL!

Card Details

Everyday Thanks (Paper Makeup Stamps)
Ink: Stampin' Up Markers (Taken with Teal & Real Red)
CS-Kraft, Bermuda Bay and Real Red (SU), White (Georgia Pacific)
Accessories/Tools: Labels 8 Nesties, Nested Butterfly, Long Classic Rectangles Large Nestabilities (Spellbinders), silver mini brads, "Victoria" embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Cuttlebug, Red and Black Spicca pens, dimensionals

Only two more days until the Paper Makeup Stamps June Release Sneak Peaks start...are you excited? This month is yet ANOTHER fabulous one and the Design Team members are having a blast putting projects together for you!

PMS November Sneaks~ Day 3: Monsters and Trees

As I said on yesterday's post, today's category for the Paper Makeup Stamps November Sneaks is definitely my favorite! Our fabulous Monster designer Steve has created some of his BEST work for this month! All you monster lovers out there are going to enjoy meeting:

George~ the Go Green Monster
Nole~ the Christmas Light Monster
BooBoo~ the Bandaid Monster

And my favorite new monster stamp:
Monster of a Gift

Today you will also see a new image addition called Twisty Tree which is perfect for any occasion, but especially for this time of year. So let's get this show on the road.

My card for you features the new stamp Twisty Tree and another stamp from the new Everyday Thanks set that was shared yesterday. Twisty Tree is perfect to use for anytime, but it's especially nice for this season! I first created my background (first time doing something like this!). Next I stamped the image and filled it in with my markers. I dabbled a bit of Stickles (Diamond) on each of the leaves for a bit of shine. I kept this card in plain Chocolate and White and put all my color on my image so it would qualify for the Color Combinations Challenge: Neutrals with a Pop of Color (CC243) on Splitcoaststampers. I then paper pierced on two of the sides of the image. I really like this card, what do you think?

Twisty Tree Card Details
Twisty Tree and Everyday Thanks (PMS)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (SU), Coffee Bean (Brilliance), French Blue and Moss Green (Cateye Chalk Ink)
Coloring: SU and BIC markers
Paper: CS-Chocolate Chip (SU) and White (Georgia Pacific)

PMS Sneak Week~ Day 2: Everyday Thanks

It's Day 2 of the Paper Makeup Stamps November Release Sneak Week! Yesterday you were introduced to the two new Moody Girls being released on November 7th. Weren't they just fabulous? Today many of the PMS Makeup Artists are sharing a new sentiment collection called Everyday Thanks. This set consists of four beautiful phrases of "thanks".

My card for you today (pardon the horrible didn't look like that until I uploaded it here...maybe click on it to see it better?) uses the sentiment "Thank you for your thoughtfulness". I CASE'd THIS card by Emily/ejkeaton and changed everything but the layout. The patterned paper is a sheet from a random pack I bought a long time ago at a Dollar Tree. It's sooo beautiful, but I didn't have any cardstock to match it...until I found my SU Bravo Burgundy cardstock! It was an exact match, so I had to use it. I did the squares with my Scallop Square Nesties and the leaf design was made by using my Leafy Branch Sizzlit Die-cut (from SU). I just tore off the bottom part of it after cutting out three of them from the patterned paper. There is paper piercing along the top and the bottom of the front layer.

For Challenges:

Card Recipe:
Everyday Thanks (PMS)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Paper: CS-Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard (SU); DP-from stash
Accessories & Tools: paper piercer, "Leafy Branch" Sizzlit (SU), Scallop Square Nestabilities

If you are ready to see more of the sentiment from this new set head on over to any of the other PMS Makeup Artist's blogs, or just drop by the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Post for today!

See you tomorrow for Day 3 of the DON'T want to miss it! It's my favorite category release for this month! And don't forget that the big Paper Makeup Stamps Release Party is scheduled for Saturday, November 7th over on our PMS Forum! Make sure you come and have some fun with us! There will be contests and challenges and chit-chat!
