lovely package inspiration...

For today's inspiration challenge Stef found this incredible site of packaging called lovely package. I could seriously spend hours pouring over this site. In fact, I have added it to my favorites!
I actually decided to use the "tasty bone" package as my inspiration. I knew I had some treat bags in my cupboard waiting to be used and I went from there. The bags were white so I just went with it and decided to paper piece kraft cs bones all over the bag to tie in the "kraft" look of the inspiration piece. I stamped the dog walker and dogs, coloured them, paper pieced the lady's skirt and adhered them on to the bottom corner of the bag. I used dimensionals for a few of the pooch's.

I covered a chipboard tag with the same patterned paper as the dog walker's skirt and added a sentiment. Some thick red grosgrain ribbon and a dog bone shaped clip finishes off the treat bag. I didn't have any treats on hand so for the photo I filled it with dog food...ha ha ha! So pretend it's some lovely home-made dog treats.
Stamps: Gone to the dogs, friends fur-ever (My Favorite Things). CS: kraft, neenah solar crest cs, Basic Grey patterned paper. Ink: Momento. Access: treat bag (Papertrey Ink), dimensionals, crop-o-dial, bone clip, grosgrain ribbon, chipboard tag, hemp twine, Copic markers, and sanding files.

And here is who that dog food actually belongs to. This is our new member of our family "Boots". He is 8 1/2 weeks old and a real sweetie! His Mom is shitzu crossed with yorkie terrier and his dad is purebred lhasa apso. Needless to say, my daughter is in puppy

water + sand= Father's Day card...

Today's limited supply challenge was to use only "beach" colours (blue, grey, sands) and you had to use all of the following: Ribbon, hemp/twine or fibres, brads and piercing on your card. I immediately knew I wanted to use my coast to coast set and make a card for my Dad for Father's Day. I decided to also combine this week's sketch challenge as well.

I started out by stamping my main background with Papertrey Ink's Father know's best set (the compass image) in night of navy and at every center of the image I added a silver brad. I stamped the lighthouse the same way and then inked up my sentiment in black and stamped it over the main image. Sentiment reads " any man can be a Father, it takes someone special to be a Dad". The patterned paper is from the 3 bugs "playtime" line. For the square panels under the main image I paper pierced the edges to sort of "frame" the main image. Red isn't really allowed in the colour scheme for the challenge but it really was what looked best and I think red is very nautical, cape cod, beach cabana's....ha ha ha! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. For the final touches I added some navy grosgrain ribbon and stitched little X's with hemp thread and then mounted the whole works onto a kraft card base.

Stamps: Coast to Coast (Stampin' Up), Father know's best (Papertrey Ink). CS: kraft, whisper white, riding hood red, night of navy and patterned paper by 3 bugs playtime line. Ink: Night of navy, Momento. Access: brads, mat pack, hemp thread, grosgrain ribbon, paper piercer.

Hope everyone has a stamp happy weekend!

Just magnolia challenge week 8

While I was surfing some blogs I came across the just magnolia challenge blog and decided to join in the fun. The due date is tonight 11 pm UK time so I have probably missed out but I loved the sketch and wanted to take part anyways.

I had coloured dragon fly Tilda a few days ago and already had the papers I wanted to use with her laid out so literally all I had to do was follow the sketch and put it all together. There is a ton of dimension to this card so you would definately want to hand deliver this The yellow flocked paper is up on dimensionals, and then the nestabilitie circles are on dimensionals and lastly Tilda is popped up as well. I coloured her with my Copics and added a little glitter with my Gelly roll pen to her wings.

Supplies: Stamps: Dragonfly Tilda (Magnolia Stamps), sentiment (A Muse). CS: Staples brand 110# cs, Neenah solar crest cs, always artichoke, so saffron, embossed blue cs (not sure who makes this, but I LOVE it!), and patterned papers by Chatterbox. Ink: Momento. Access: Copics, white gel pen, Sakura gelly roll pen, buttons, hemp twine, dimensionals, glue dots, ribbon, and word window punch.

Simple cherry gingham Anya...

I have developed a new bad habit....colouring images and leaving them on my desk....ha ha ha! I need to stop just colouring them and complete them into cards! I received this uber cute snow, rain, shine miss Anya image from the Canadian PIF thread and immediately had to colour her. She is sooooo cute! Once coloured I managed to talk myself into making a simple card to finish her off!

I added some scraps I had in my box, added a few simple embellishments, a sentiment and some paper piercing and voila! Card complete. Miss sunny Anya has crystal effects on the lenses of her sunglasses and is popped up on dimensionals.

Supplies: Stamps: snow, rain, shine miss Anya (the greeting farm), sentiment (A Muse). CS: whisper white, riding hood red, kiwi kiss and patterned papers by Stampin' Up. Ink: Momento. Access: Copics, white gel pen, dimensionals, crystal effects, blossoms, glue dots, button, rafia and paper butterfly.
