poppystamps Rudolph Collage, Greenery Bundle and a tip…

Hi everyone!  Have you seen this Rudolph Collage die yet?  What did you think of when you saw it?  Well, first thing I thought was ‘thumbprint’!  So that’s what I did. I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink to print my thumb.

I die cut in white, kept the circles and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers and coated them with Ranger Glossy Accents.

His glittery red nose is a glitter dome…linked below. I die cut a kraft color circle for behind and inked it with Distress Oxide inks, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain and the ink blending tool.

Merry and Bright are from the Christmas Greetings stamp set.  I did stamp surgery, they go right back together.  : )  Inked, stamped with the MISTI and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I die cut the Ava Snowflakes and Greenery Bundle in white card-stock.  I colored the Greenery Bundle with Copic Sketch Markers and yes, I remembered to take a picture of the back to show how I placed the foam mounting squares!  This is how I hold the pieces in place.

Holler if you have any questions about it…

This is an A2 size card.

Two boy birthday cards…

Hi everyone!  How’s your end of Summer going? I keep getting sidetracked! lol  Trying to make more room here and there and clearing out stuff but really not ending up with that much more room!  Why?!  I think I’m pretty good at it! lol Oh well….I’ll keep trying.

And the other thing…how come if you use one scrap it seems like two more appear! lol

This is Corrin’s birthday card for this year… He turned 8 years old!  and yes, he is a cute blonde…that Summer bleached blonde funky hair cut kind of boy, concerned about the frogs etc. lol

I linked up to this stamp below but it’s discontinued…sorry about that but I have to use my stash too and I have to show you anyway cuz it’s a cute card! lol

I stamped him with Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Copic Sketch Markers and cut him out by hand but hey, I got a really good deal on a Scan n Cut 350 machine and I really like it you guys!!!  Shirley has been telling me about it and you know how we influence each other!!!  Thank you Shirley! lol  So next time, I’m cutting these bad boys and anything else I don’t have the dies for, with this new toy!  I cut out some digital images and the granddaughters cut out some hand drawn images with it.  Gena’s clouds were super cute!

Here’s a picture of the digital images I cut out with it…

ok – back to birthday cards…

This is Henry’s birthday card for this year…he turned 11!!!  Doesn’t seem possible!  He loves games! He’s great driving the gator around too, mowing the lawn and loves to read.

Shoot me now! lol  This is another die set that is discontinued and so is the stamp set. boo.  The die set is called Game Controller and the stamp set is called Level Up, both by My Favorite Things…so don’t be mad at me! lol

I saw a card made up when I googled the stamp name,  I loved it so I made it very similar to Elaine’s!  Thank you Elaine for the inspiration!

Both boys liked their cards!  yay!  June and July are both big birthday months for our family…September we have 3 so a few weeks break from birthday cards!

Although, I made a card, copied myself, that a friend requested for her aunt’s 90th birthday.  She started dairy farming when she was 50 yrs old!  Click on over to my Instagram to see a super short video of it. I put the tractor on a wobble this time.  Guaranteed to make you smile!

Thanks so much for stopping by stamping friends!  I appreciate it so much!

I’m trying out the new LinkDeli links today…a trial to see if they will work on a wordpress.com blog….so click away! lol Pretty sure it won’t blow up! lol

Memory Box Candle Centerpiece CAS card…

The days are getting away from me again!  How are you? This is ‘take two’ for this card…the first one…well, it got trashed! lol  I used a couple more dies and pattern paper and yikes…back to CAS! haha

I love this combo of candle, pine and holly.  I die cut it in white…heat embossed the outline with gold embossing powder twice, then colored the pieces with Copic Sketch markers before I inlaid them back in.

To keep the pieces together, I piece them from the wrong side and use 3L thin mounting squares to hold them together.  I cut the squares into 3 strips and it really works quite well.  You could do this with any foam type mounting adhesive. I’ll have to take a picture of what it looks like next time I do it. Take for example, where the holly is coming off the side of the candle…great place to stick one and it holds the inner leaf to the outline of the candle and to the candle.

The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas Sentiments stamp set HERE.   I just started using the Tim Holtz Stamp Press HERE….I like it a lot!  The die is called the Candle Centerpiece HERE and the strip of pattern paper is from Pebbles Merry Merry Collection, HERE.  (it’s from the strip on the bottom of the paper where one side has the name and the other side is complementary to the pattern, on the Holly Berries sheet)

MFT Warm and Fuzzy Birthday card…

Hi and welcome to a beautiful Summer’s eve campfire! This set is so cute, can’t believe it’s the first time I’ve used it.  The kids have used it but me, I’m the last one!  Now it’s retiring but we know there’s always more cute coming… You can still find it HERE and the dies HERE…hurry if you want them!

This was our grandson Cedryk’s 5th birthday card.  They live in the country and at night they’ll go visit the cows in the gator… the cows love to come talk to Cedryk! lol  Actually Ced talks to them and they listen!  lol

I used Distress Oxide inks for the sky and grass ink blendingwater dripped on and dabbed off for the faint spots in the sky.  Puffy cloud dies, you can find them HERE.

So cute!  Love that little hedgie!  I colored the images with Copic Markers on MFT  Sweet Tooth Card stock.  I have a little trouble with the copics bleeding on it but I like how easy it blends. A basic A2 size card.

Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!

 

I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.

 

I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe

I love these cute characters from Simon Says Stamp!  This is the Happy Swimmers stamp and die set, out of stock right now though. I linked it anyway. You can always sign up to get notified when it comes back in stock.  The sun die is from Lawn Fawn, the waves from My Favorite Things and the sand from Taylored Expressions but I’m linking you up to the poppystamps Stitched Landscape die set.  The sentiment is from another Simon Says Stamp set called Happy Block Greetings.

Just a fun, cute card for Gena who’s turning 10 this month!  Doesn’t seem possible! She’s still a little girl at heart though and she loves hugs from Grandma, making cards, her chicks and kittens!  Oh and swimming! lol
