Forgetful Riley...

For some reason, I can never remember when my soon to be sis-in-law's Birthday is. I usually remember when it is too late to send even a card!! So, this year I am getting better. Her Birthday is today and I just popped this card into the mail today so hopefully she will receive it only a few days late.

I received these adorable hammock Riley images while playing in the PIF (pay it forward) forum. I even coloured a few images while in bed last week so needless to say, this card came together very quickly. I coloured Riley with prismas, gamsol and stumps. I used some of my scrap summer picnic designer paper, added some real red and green apple ribbon, and embossed the sentiment for the finishing touch. Riley's panel is popped up on dimensionals.


Stamps: Hammock Riley (Hanna stamps). CS: green galore, real red, white and Summer picnic designer paper. Ink: black and versamark. Access: real red and green apple grosgrain, white emboss powder, heat gun, dimensionals, prisma's, gamsol and stumps.

Afternoon tea bookmark card...

I have an upcoming workshop this weekend and needed to decide what I was planning to make. A friend of mine suggested making a bookmark card that she had seen on Splitcoast a looong while ago. What a great idea! Especially seeing as the ladies were wanting "Mother's Day" theme. I knew that I wanted to use the "live your dream" set from the mini and incorporate the afternoon tea designer paper. Then, I stumbled across the featured stamper challenge on Splitcoast and fell in love with a card by Michelle (sf9erfan, the featured stamper). This is the card I was inspired by here.

I stamped the flowers using markers, added the ribbon (skipped the bow as there was not enough room due to the main image being so large). I added the rounded tab punch with "Mother" stamped on it. I decorated the bookmark, which folds right into the card so when the recipient opens it, they have a nice surprise (and it mails in a regular envie too which is always a bonus!). I typed out the sentiment as it would not fit on the tab if I had stamped it. I simplified this design somewhat from Michelle's as like mentioned above I plan to use it at a workshop and don't want to overwhelm them! To make a bookmark card, cut your cs to 5.5 X10.5 and score as you normally would at 4.25, this leaves 2" overhang. Score this and use your perforating tool so that the bookmark can be torn out from the card.


stamps: Live your dream, everyday flexible phrases and It's your Bday (sentiment for inside of card). CS: wild wasabi, soft sky, whisper white. Ink: wild wasabi, groovy guava and markers: old olive, bashful blue and cameo coral. Access: bashful blue grosgrain ribbon, ticket corner punch, rounded tab punch, brad, computer.

Jungle inspiration...

I combined 2 challenges to make this card. I took part in the inspiration challenge on Splitcoast today and Amy Rysavy's weekend sketch challenge. Check out the inspiration challenge here. Here is a link to Amy's blog and here is the inspiration piece that sparked this creation.

I have had this paper sitting around for-evah with no idea what to do with it. One of those paper purchases that you think are cute but once purchased think "what in the world do I do with it now?!" You know we all have those papers stashed away somewhere. I unfortunately do that waaay too much and regularly have to go through my paper stash and donate it to my daughter's pre-school.

Anyways, back to the card: not too much explanation needed here as it is a pretty straight forward design. The whole lion panel (mustard, burgundy and circle panel) is popped up onto dimensionals. I used the horizontal slot punch to weave the ribbon through. I stamped the lion out 3 times, twice with cocoa ink and once with mustard ink. I cut out his mane and his face and popped them up with dimensionals as well. The sentiment was done using white emboss powder.


Stamps: wild about you. CS: garden green, more mustard, bravo burgundy, whisper white and Karen Foster patterned paper (zoo stripes). Inks: close to cocoa, more mustard, brocade blue, creamy caramel and versamark. Access: old olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, white emboss powder, heat gun, horizontal slot punch, and dimensionals.

I am off to Victoria for the night to visit my Grandma for the night. With any luck, I will get a shopping trip to the Lululemon store and hopefully a large stamp store....

Elegent limbed blossoms...

For this card, I combined the colour challenge and sketch challenge on Splitcoast this week. The colour challenge was pretty in pink, chocolate chip and certainly celery.

I used one of my PIF images I received the other day (out on a limb by Paper trey ink) and matted it onto chocolate chip cs. The card base is pretty in pink, I boosted the chocolate chip panel, pretty in pink stamped with canvas, celery panel and main image up (as one) onto dimensionals. I added some chocolate organdy ribbon with a pearl ribbon buckle. The sentiment "to the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world" I punched with the large oval punch and then mounted it with some circle punches and popped it up with dimensionals.


Stamps: out on a limb (papertrey ink), canvas bg. CS: pretty in pink, chocolate chip, certainly celery and white. Ink: chocolate chip, pretty in pink. Access: chocolate organdy, ribbon buckle (lil' davis), dimensionals, oval punch, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8" circle punches.

I think this would make a sweet Mother's Day card. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Lemonade anyone??

I happened to see a card that someone on Splitcoast made using the tart and tangy as a lemon and stamped their background like this. I was so inspired to pair it up with these Amuse lemonade stand images someone sent to me as a gift early this year.

I coloured the lemonade stands using prisma colour pencils, gamsol and a stump. For this first card I mounted the image onto a mega scallop punch in yo yo yellow and added some ribbon. The card base is so saffron and the lemon panel is matted with a narrow yo yo cs mat. I added a little saffron scallop strip and then popped the main image up on dimensionals. The sentiment " when life hands you lemons..." was done on the computer. The inside says "make lemonade" (of course!) and I plan to enclose a packette of kool aid lemonade.

For the second card I used the sames base and mat colours.
I punched a giga square into the lemon background. I layered the yo yo mat and then used an exacto knife to cut away the inner square (leaving a small edge to continue with the mat). I added some ribbon and in the center of the knot sewed a small yellow flower button. I raised the lemon and yo yo panel up onto dimensionals so that the lemonade stand is "sunken". Once again, I used the computer for my sentiment "lifes simple pleasures..."

Stamps: Tart and tangy, lemonade stand (Amuse). CS: so saffron, yo yo yellow, whisper white. Ink: yo yo yellow. Access: prisma colour pencils, gamsol, stumps, dimensionals, yellow grosgrain ribbon, horizontal slot punch, slit punch, mega scallop circle punch, 2" circle punch, giga square punch, flower button, and computer for sentiments.
I adore the way these cards turned cute and summery. I will have to find someone in the PIF forum with this stamp on their list and stalk them for awhile...hee hee!
Thanks for checking out my latest!

Close rocky beaches...

I made this card over last weekend following Mytime's weekend sketch challenge. You can check it out here. I stamped the retired cheesecloth bg in close to cocoa onto my soft sky cs, and stamped it onto an angle. I distressed the edges of the cs using my paper distresser. I stamped the conch shell in choc. chip ink and then carefully watercoloured it. I cut the conch out, leaving parts of it overhanging the square. I matted the sky panel with the river rock cs and also distressed the edges. I added 2 jumbo eyelets and wrapped hemp twine around the card. I spritzed it using the spritzer tool and then added a cut out starfish. I typed and printed the definition of "treasure" over top of the conch shell as a finishing touch. (note to self: must purchase define life set from the catty soon!). This is a 5X5 card. I love the colours in this "beachy"
Stamps: Seaside, cheesecloth bg. CS: close to cocoa, river rock, soft sky, and very vanilla. Ink: chocolate chip, soft sky, river rock and close to cocoa. Access: jumbo eyelets, hemp twine, watercolour brushes, crop o dial, paper distresser, colour spritzer tool.
Thanks for stopping in!

GinaK release party challenges...

Gina K designs celebrated with a release party this weekend and posted some fun challenges. I decided to take part in them and have 2 cards to share today. Both challenges were sketches. I don't have very many Gina K sets, so was quite limited as to what images I was able to use. For the first one, I used up some scraps of some old paper I have had kicking around for at least a couple of years. I coloured the main image using my prismacolour pencils and then added some "snow" using my liquid applique. I stitched all the paper down to add a "warm" feeling to the design. I added a ghost shape (Heidi Swap) snowflake and used some paint to make it a little more visible and then added this pearl brad I found in the wedding section of M's to finish it off.

For the second sketch card, I pulled out my "way to go" set
and decided to go with a very humoures Father's Day card.
I pulled out some Basic Grey patterned paper I have had
stashed for a while and went to work. I stamped the toilet and covered it with crystal effects to give it a porcelain look. I added a slit in the toilet so I could put the toilet plunger right into the "bowl". The dotted bg panel is up on dimensionals as well as the toilet. I added the crown from the retired pretty princess set and added a sentiment with the computer, unfortunately the sentiment is not very visible. It reads " KING of the castle". I finished the design off with some ribbon.


card 1: stamps: Got snow? (Gina K). CS: wild wasabi, elegant eggplant, real red, Autumn leaves patterned paper. Ink: blk staz on. Access: stitched wasabi ribbon, ghost shape (Heidi Swap), paint (MM), pearl brad, giga scallop punch, mega circle punch, liquid applique, prisma colour pencils, gamsol, stumps, sewing machine.

card 2: stamps: Way to Go! (Gina K), pretty princess. CS: night of navy, whisper white and basic grey patterned paper. Ink: blk staz on, night of navy, barely banana marker, river rock. Access: navy grosgrain ribbon, crystal effects, Sakura gelly roll pen, blender pens, dimensionals, exacto knife, computer (for sentiment).

Blooming featured stamper...

I made this for the featured stamper challenge on Splitcoast yesterday (you case a card in the featured stamper's gallery and change at least 2 things about the card). Sparklegirl was the featured stamper and this is the card of hers I cased here. I love the clean lines of her design and how the colours of her flowers add such a beautiful contrast to the dark colours.
I started with very vanilla and chocolate chip as my base. I used the retired big blooms set to do my flowers with and embossed and cut and layered the blossoms to get a similiar effect as to the featured stampers card. The 2 largest blossoms are up on dimensionals to add some depth to the design. Hodgepodge hardware, some ribbon and snap stamps finish off the sentiment. I love the colours in this design and the stunning simplicity of it.
Stamps: big blooms, Karen Foster snap stamps (1/8"). CS: very vanilla, chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, summer sun, and pink passion. Ink: chocolate chip, versamark. Access: pumpkin ribbon, hodgepodge hardware, brads, clear emboss powder, heat gun and dimensionals.

Bashful Riley...

I made this card following Beate's weekend sketch challenge and using an image I received in the PIF (pay it forward) forum on Splitcoast. This image is Riley and he is available from Hanna stamps (isn't he soooo cute?!). I coloured him in using my prisma's, gamsol and a stump and paired the sketch up with the Stampin Up picnic designer paper. I adore this paper! I added a sentiment from the computer and added some crystal effects on the cherry atop Riley's cupcake and his coffee. An olive button finishes off the card nicely. I kept this design simple.

Stamps: Coffee Riley (I received the image in the PIF forum). CS: kraft, real red, bashful blue, white, picnic designer paper. Ink: black. Access: crystal effects, earth elements buttons, prismacolour pencils, gamsol, stumps, computer for sentiment.

I think this makes a sweet Mother's Day card. Mom's always deserve a break and some relaxation

Basic Guava appeal...

Ever since I read the colour challenge on Splitcoast on Tuesday, I have had this card in my head. Unfortunately, today was the first chance I had to execute it and get it onto paper. Once I finished the card, I realized that the colour challenge was actually groovy guava, basic grey and blush blossom. I mixed up blush blossom and used apricot appeal instead....whoops! Oh well, I decided to post it anyways as I still like the way it turned out.

I paper pieced the girls dress using the hostess prints pack paper and also used the same print for the bg paper. I used my new "swiss dots" cuttlebug emboss folder for the guava panel and added a narrow matt of basic grey to make it really stand out. The main image is paper pieced, coloured with markers and I roughed up the edges with my paper distresser. The sentiment is from "always" and I added a few pieces of ribbon to finish off the design. The girls hat and guava panel are both popped up with dimensionals. The little blossom is from Michael's wedding section. They are called wedding confetti and come in little paint buckets. I coloured this one with a blender pen and ink to match my card.

This will be added to my Mother's day cards sale basket.


stamps: summer by the sea, always. CS: basic grey, groovy guava, whisper white and appricot appeal hostess print pack paper. Inks: basic black, basic grey, appricot appeal marker, groovy guava. Access: cuttlebug, swiss dots emboss folder, wedding confetti flower, blender pens, basic grey taffeta ribbon, paper distresser and dimensionals.

Hope everyone has a super weekend!

Basic sky wedding...

This card started as this brilliant idea in my the time I started it onto paper....UGH! Not at all what I pictured. So, I changed a little of this, a little of that, added here, added there and this was the final result of massive fiddling. Not at all what I originally had in my head but finished none-the-less. The painful trials of this card combined with a "internet service outage" in my area was a recipe for major But, the internet is back up (after being down for almost 12hrs), and the card is finished so happiness is restored...YAY. Oh! and add in some fabulous stamp shopping I did online the last few days and I am happy, happy, happy!

The basic black base is stamped with versamark and embossed with silver using the swirl from baroque motifs. The sky panel is cuttlebugged and the basic grey panel is stamped in co-ordinating ink using the baroque background and popped up with dimensionals to really add some dimension to this card. I embossed the circle design in silver (from Baroque motifs) cut it out, popped it up onto dimensionals and added a white brad to the center.

Do you ever wish you had a certain colour of brad, but have the colour in your embossing powders? Now, you can have that colour brad. Simply (using tweezers or scissors) heat your brad using your heat gun and once it has heated up, dip it into the emboss powder and re-heat again. I had to do that process a few times to get solid coverage for the white brads but, it does work perfectly!


Stamps: Baroque motifs, Baroque background, happy harmony. CS: basic black, soft sky, basic grey, and whisper white. Inks: versamark, basic grey. Access: ribbon (May Arts and Offray), brads, silver and white emboss powder, heat gun, giga square punch, cuttlebug, emboss folder, ticket corner punch, and dimensionals.

Ciao for now!

Celebrate you...

I made this following one of Beate's weekend sketch challenges a few weeks back. You can check out the sketch here. I had this image sitting around that I got in a stamped image swap a few years ago. So, I pulled it out and coloured it using my prismacolour pencils, gamsol and blending stumps. I was really happy with the way it turned out. I stamped over the image with the weathered bg. The patterned paper is from the hostess level 1 paper pack. The colour combo came from the the main image. I added some rub ons for my sentiment and some ribbon. Supplies:

Stamps: long-time friend, weathered bg and canvas bg. CS: night of navy, so saffron, very vanilla and hostess designer paper pack. Ink: black, close to cocoa and so saffron. Access: grosgrain ribbon, prismacolour pencils, gamsol, stump, rub ons.

Fly Father...

I finally ordered this set, it had been on my wishlist since the new catty came out. I have in actuality had the stamp for a couple of weeks and finally got it inky the other night. I LOVED watercolouring this image!! It was so fun and it was also the first time I ever blended and layered different colours together while watercolouring....Oh I know, the adventurousness never stops around here....snicker!

I stamped the fly fisherman in blk staz on, onto watercolour paper. I stamped the weathered bg over top of the whole image (after stamping off once) so the effect would be very subtle. The base layer (sage shadow) is stamped in corresponding ink with the canvas bg stamp. The colour combo for this card came directly from the wanted designer paper (from last years catty). I added my Sakuras stardust gelly pen onto the fish so he is sort of shimmery like the scales on a real fish. He is popped up on dimensionals and attached to some hemp twine. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.


stamps: on the fly, weathered bg, canvas bg, flannel plaid bg, sentiment (Hero Arts). CS: sage shadow, chocolate chip, creamy caramel, watercolour paper, wanted designer paper. Inks: Blk staz on, sage shadow, creamy caramel, chocolate chip, old olive, always artichoke, blue bayou and blush blossom. Access: hemp twine, watercolour paint brush, dimensionals.

This is non stamping related info from here on it so, feel free to skip I was tagged by Sandy (check out her wonderful blog here) to list 7 random things about here it goes:

1. I love the ocean, any images, stamps, and just being there (especially lighthouses!)

2. I dislike coffee! cannot stand it in the very least, but LOVE coffee stamps and images. I am a tea kind of girl.

3. I constantly change my hair styles, cuts and colours

4. I am an outdoors kind of girl but wish I had more time to be out there...camping, snowboarding, hiking, and cannot wait to learn how to surf, and start biking!

5. I swear I have forsight and esp sometimes

6. When I was a child I was a gymnast and used to take part in competitions and placed twice in the local newspaper.

7. I swear I am ambidextrous. I am right handed but use my left more than I should. If I open a jar or twist tie, I hold the item in my right hand and twist or open with my left...

Thanks for the tag Sandy!

Simple Pleasures...

Oh how I love my Rubber Romance girls...

I started by paper piecing retro Robyn's pants and hat. I coloured her skin, hair and leash using prismas, gamsol and a stump. I incorporated the patterned paper in her outfit as the bg paper on the card and also made a matching button as an embellishment to "tie" it all together. For the river rock panel, I stamped tres chic on it for some dimension and included some May Arts ribbon. For the sentiment, I used my computer and then popped her hat up on dimensionals as a finishing touch.


Stamps: Retro Robyn (Rubber Romance), tres chic bg, Large oval (Amuse). CS: basic black, river rock, whisper white, crate paper. Ink: Blk staz on, river rock. Access: clear button, May Arts ribbon, dimensionals, stamp a ma jig, prismacolour pencils, gamsol and stump.

I actually stamped 2 cards last night so was very pleased with myself...YAY!

Cherished Bareback...

This one's for you Tanya....ha ha ha!!!!
I have not been creating anything new the last while. (besides the vsn card I posted). I have been busy trying to get a broken car fixed, supplies ready for my upcoming class and a bitty board album ready to display at my upcoming class. Ohhhh...the excuses, the
Anywho, I knew I should have purchased this set from the last catty when it retired but didn't. Then, I had to go online to get it. I actually got it for a very reasonable price and it was unmounted so, I really lucked into this purchase. I paired it up with the wanted patterned paper from the last catty as well. Distressed the edges with the paper distresser, added some hemp twine, ribbon and star spiral clip to finish it off.
stamps: bareback, warm words. CS: basic grey, chocolate chip, really rust, very vanilla, wanted patterned paper. Ink: chocolate chip, basic black. Access: chocolate chip grosgrain 5/8, narrow grosgrain, star spiral clip, crop o dial, hemp twine, paper distresser.

VSN and a giggle...

This weekend on Splitcoast, it is VSN weekend. Which means, virtual stamp night. The whole weekend, various challenges are posted and they all have a common theme. This months theme is "fashion". I don't usually take part in these, or if I do, I just do a challenge here and there, so, I don't have a lot of experiance doing these. I am gonna tell you about my "whoops" incident. So, I read through the challenges that have been posted and see one about faux silk technique and decided to run off and do it. I actually made 5 (all the same), to sell for Mother's Day. As, I am getting ready to upload I notice that this particular challenge is actually from March's mini VSN and they had closed that thread due to confusion...ha ha ha. So there I am working so diligently, proud of myself for taking part and the challenge is old. Typical me....hee hee!
Anywho, I love the way this one turned out so figured I would share it here anyways. Beate has an awesome tutorial for the faux silk technique and I highly suggest trying it out. It is such an elegant look! Check out the tutorial here.
I started out by stamping the "blossoms abound" stamp in pretty in pink onto the white tissue paper. I 2 step stamped it with the regal rose. The leaves were done with mellow moss and certainly celery. Then, I used my sentiment stamp from Hero arts and stamped that over everything. I crumpled up the tissue paper and then used my glue stick and glued it onto a white piece of cs the same size as the tissue paper. I added my coloured mats, my ribbon and
added a long hat style pin (I bought off ebay years ago) and added some tiny beads to it. Just the right touch of elegance.

Stamps: blossoms abound, sentiment Hero Arts. CS: regal rose, certainly celery, basic black, white, tissue paper. Inks: pretty in pink, regal rose, mellow moss, certainly celery, and basic black. Access: Organdy ribbon (May Arts), gold cord, T pin, beads, glue stick.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

House mouse Gift card holder...

I came across this awesome gift card holder designed by Lisa Johnson on her blog. She also includes a template on how to re-create it. Check out her blog here. As soon as I saw her gift card holder I knew it would be perfect for my niece's Birthday card.
I received this stamped image in an image swap a long time ago (maybe 2 years ago?) and decided to colour it in using my blender pens. Looking at it now, I wish I had used prismacolour pencils and gamsol instead but, no use whining about it Once I coloured the mice all in, I used my Sakura stardust gelly pen and made the balloon and mice all sparkly, to really make them
pop! I love this colour combo and was inspired by this super cool blog, that was recommended by a fellow blogger. check it out here. I stuck with just the pinks and black though. I found this super cool matching ribbon in my stash and think it was the perfect addition to the card.
For the inside, I used the same sentiment that Lisa used except, I don't have the stamp so used my computer instead. The sentiment is from Papertrey Birthday basics and is a set I HAVE to add to my collection. As we all know, one can never have too many sentiment sets! For the background panel under the gift card, I stamped "seeing spots" in pink and black. I added a spot from seeing spots, punched out and matted onto a black circle, a black brad in the center to secure it onto the ribbon as an added charm over the gift card.

Lisa's gift card, is definately one I will make again in the future, so easy and very eyecatching and a fun way to present a gift card!

Stamps: house mouse, seeing spots, cute converse. CS: basic black, regal rose, pretty in pink and blush blossom. Inks: basic black, regal rose, close to cocoa, pretty in pink, creamy caramel, blush blossom. Access: ribbon, horizontal slot punch, ticket corner punch, rounded tab punch, prima flower, brads, Sakura stardust gel pen, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, slit punch, and computer.
Thanks for checking out my latest!

Pretty lavender princess...

I was just playing around with the new number collage embossing folder and decided to put together a girly Birthday card to have on hand. I started with a pretty in pink base, barely banana mat, I embossed the lavender lace panel with the emboss folder. I actually traced along the numbers with my sakura gelly roll stardust pen so it is very sparkly and pretty in person. I added a patterned paper panel from the Basic Grey 2 scoops line. For the main image, I actually scored 2 lines on each side, to give it a sort of "nestabilities" look. The ribbon in the picture totally came out a weird colour in the photo and upload it is actually eggplant and matches really well. For the princess, I coloured her using the soft subtles markers and then added the gelly roll pen all over so she is super sparkly as well. I used my computer for the sentiment on the scalloped circle. It says " once upon a time..." and I stamped the "wand" image to finish off the look.
Stamps: pretty princess. CS: pretty in pink, barely banana, lavender lace, whisper white and Basic Grey patterned paper (2 scoops). Ink: basic black, Markers: pretty in pink, lavender lace, barely banana, and blush blossom. Access: number collage emboss folder, cuttlebug, eggplant grosgrain ribbon, sakura gelly roll pen, scallop punch, 1 3/8" punch, dimensionals.
