Peachy Keen Challenge 32 – Sketch – Aug 2012

This week over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog a Sketch Challenge is going on. I love Peachy Keen stamps, since my drawing talent is stick men and stick woman.

Peachy Keen Challenge 32 – Sketch –  Aug 2012

So here is the card that I made:

I used the Cricut Lite Recess cartridge for the little school girl sitting at her desk. The cardstock comes from Recollections Back to School collection.

I used the Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids Assortment for her face. Then used my Sukura Gelly Roll Pen in White for her eyes and my Bic markers for the rest of the face.

The sentiment is from Pink By Design’s Simply Everything. This is a great stamp set full of sentiments for every occasion.

The Tree stamp is from a local Dollar store which I colored with Copics and added some Glossy Accents to the apple to give it shine.

The inside sentiment is from a Studio G set that I got at Michaels.

You should head on over to Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge Blog and check out the other entries, there are many very talented crafters out there.

Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone.

I just got home last week from a well deserved holiday and straight back to work I went. I didn’t want to leave the sun behind and head back to the real world but I had to.

Well this week was my friend’s birthday and every year we go camping to celebrate the occasion. Camp fire, food, drinks, stars and of course s’mores.

I bought her a balloon and whipped up this simple birthday card for her.

I used  Recollections cardstock and my Indentz Vine 1 folder to emboss the background, then stamped one of the butterflies from Inkadinkado Butterflies stamp set in StazOn Teal Blue ink. I decided to cut out the butterfly with the Spellbinders Peony Die set and added some popdots.

The sentiment is from Pink By Design’s Sibling Love stamp set, cut out with the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and attached using Divine Twine in Aqua.

The inside sentiment comes from Studio G, I think.

So here are some Butterfly Birthday Wishes!!!!

To another great year of new adventures and treasured memories.

I love my Dog!

I love my Dog! He’s not really my dog, he’s my neighbor’s dog but I love him too. It’s like having a dog but without any of the associated costs….. it’s great!

He comes and goes as he pleases, he knows he’s always welcome here.

Anytime I put something onto the BBQ, he’s right by my side giving me that face that says ” LOVE ME, LOVE ME, LOVE ME”. He’s too cute.

Often when I am outside working on a post he is lying quietly beside me, keeping me safe while I write away.

He is a great dog and I love him.

 For this card I used Recollections cardstock and the Crafts Too – Bone and Paw Print Embossing Folder.

I used the Woof Woof Dog stamp set from Recollections that I got at Michaels with black embossing powder for both the dog and the sentiment. I used my Spellbinders Classic Inverted Scalloped Squares to cut out the dog and the Spellbinders Tag Trio for the sentiment. I added some color with my Bic markers and some popdots for dimension.

Then used my Stud/Deco Corner Chomper and added a few Recollections Paw brads and gave the dog a couple Bone brads.

For the inside sentiment I used the Pink by Design February Stamp of the Month Rain or Shine. Is that sentiment not perfect or what?!

I also stamped the fire hydrant on red cardstock and cut it out with my Honey Bee Scissors….couldn’t live without these..they are awesome!!!!

I will be entering this card in the Cardz TV Challenge #12 Anything Goes. You should head on over to Cardz TV and check out Mary and her new Design Team have been up to.

Birthday Slider Box

Just over a week ago it was the Pink By Design July Stamp Release but I was at work and had to miss it 😦

Darn work, always getting in the way …lol.

Well that night they made a Slider Box, perfect for many things. It’s fun, quick and easy to make and the only limit is your imagination when it comes to decorating the box.

 So here is my version of the box…. a Birthday Slider Box.

I used 110# Cardstock that I purchased at Staples for the slider box to make sure the box was nice and sturdy. Then added some Recollections cardstock and DCWV Birthday pattern paper.

I used my Martha Stewart Balloon punch, attached 3 together and stamped my sentiment right on the balloons. The sentiment is from Pink by Design’s April Stamp of the Month – My Favorite Kind.

I used some Divine Twine in Aqua for the balloon string.

Now slide it open and SURPRISE!!

I added some tissue paper and some candy fish  for some sweet birthday wishes!!!

Yummm. I may have had to try a few for quality control purposes only…lol.

 The inside sentiment is from Pink by Design’s Say it Sweet.

 What a great little box that you can use for any occasion, just create, decorate and fill with whatever your heart desires.

 I will be linking this to Link Up Tuesday over at Sarah Hamer’s Blog.
