Boy Flip Book

Today, I'm posting the second of the two flip books I made over my break. This one is for a boy. For this one, I was able to use papers and embellishments from my stash except for the buttons. I didn't have any buttons with me when I made the book, so it was a great excuse to buy some more. I really needed those buttons, because I am down to a mere 50,000 or so in my stash which puts me in severe danger of running out! :0) So here's the book!

I plan to see 2010 out by stamping and crafting and then bring in 2011 the same way. Headed of to the LSS (Priceless) both days to spend a little creative time with my stampin' besties!! Happy New Year to all!!

Baby Girl Flip Book

I had to make a couple of flip books over the break. Actually had these done before Christmas, but didn't have them photographed before they go off to their owners. Both are very late!!! I will show you the girl book today. It was made primarily in purple, with touches of green for a secondary color. The papers actually all match very well, but I couldn't get them to photograph or adjust correctly...probably all in the operator :0)
I really love making these books and they seem to be very well received when I give them as gifts. Most of the papers and embellishments are by DoodleBug along with some other misc. papers from the LSS. Had a hard time finding matching stuff in purples. I'm amazed I didn't have anything in my stash. Who says I have too much stuff? Obviously I don't or I would have had everything I needed for this project in my stamping room!! Thanks for stopping in today!!

Santa Kitty Ornament

Another ornament I made, and probably my last Christmas project for a while. I used a Penny Black image that I just love. In the image, the three kitties are in a row, but I punched them out each into an individual circle. I dug out some candy-striped ribbon that I picked up at an after Christmas sale last year and another of those charms from my stash was added to the bottom. The back has dsp that has tiny flocked Santa hats. The middle one says Christmas 2010 on the back.
Now I'm ready to dive into some other projects while I'm still on Christmas break. I got lots of cleaning out done and even picked up the crochet hooks and yarn last night and whipped up a couple of dish cloths. Who knows what I'll get into over the next five days.....

Recycle It!!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas with friends and family. I know we to see all the kids over the two days and most of the grands, too! It warmed up nicely for Christmas day, but got really cold again that night and never warmed up yesterday....freezing again today. I hear that there were reports of snow all around us, though I never saw any of that nasty white stuff, and very glad I didn't!!
It seems like everyone gets in the mood to start over and get things cleaned out with the approaching new year, so Totally Stampalicious has a very appropriate challenge for this week, and they even started things up a little early. This week's challenge is to grab something headed for the trash, or maybe even out of the trash, to make your project. I had some ribbon spools that I had thrown away that were in three parts...a small plastic bobbin, a foam ring, and two cardboard disks. I grabbed the first two parts back pretty quickly thinking there must be a use for them in the crafting world. Before those cardboard disks hit the big can, I pulled them back, too. No wonder my room is always such a mess!!
I used the plastic bobbins and foam rings to make Christmas tree ornaments for the grands.  I used the Angel Bear set and colored them with Copics. I used punches and Nesties for the various layers. Added a bunch of sparkle with tiny gems or pearls and Stickles. Found the little charms in a box of Christmas embellishments that I buy and rarely use, so they are almost recycled, too!!

Priceless swap card

Sharing a card I made for a swap at the local scrap and stamp store, Priceless. We had a Christmas party there a couple of weeks ago on a Friday night...lots of cards, food, friends, and fun. This image is from Penny Black and the papers are Bo Bunny. I made lots of these to swap with everyone and used different combinations of papers for them. the snowflake is covered in chunky glitter and lots of stickles on the image.
My  relaxing holiday has been anything but the last few days. Off again today for an unplanned shopping expedition. I'm done, one of my family members who doesn't drive isn't, so off I go to do my good deed for the day. Enjoy your time over the holidays. This will likely be my last post until after Christmas so MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

I made this card for a blue and silver swap I participated in. The image is from Just Right...I just love the sentiment!! Embossing folder is from SU!. Hope everyone is keeping warm...

Just Fake It!!

Woo hoo!!! I'm officially on Christmas vacation!! Lovin' it and hope to get lots accomplished during my break. To kick things off, I made this card for the challenge over at Totally Stampalicious this week. The challenge is to use a some kind of faux technique and I used one of the many versions of faux wood to make a background for Gus and his pick up truck. This technique is done by simply dragging a color or two of distress ink pads directly over a piece of card stock. Then I used a ruler to draw in lines with a marker and add "nails" to finish it off.

Frosty Blue....Brrrrrr!!

Here's a card I got to make just because I wanted to!! Always a fun concept and I got to use this cute little image that I picked up last weekend!! Put a dog in the picture and I will probably buy it!! Add a chubby little munchkin and it's guaranteed!! This set is from My Favorite Things and I picked it up at Priceless, the LSS. I colored him with Copic markers. I was trying something different with the shading and I don't think it looks right, but I will chalk it up to a learning experience. just have that great eye for color and light that the great colorers have.

The papers are brushed silver, night of navy, marina mist and the dsp is from Bo Bunny. Tried to keep things fairly simple, but it started morphing out of control, as usual.

Make it clean

Clean and simple...a tough concept for me and in my world, this IS clean and simple. It looks like it has lots of layers, but it's actually no more than four layers at it's deepest point. I used papers by Bo Bunny to make it appear to have more depth. The green scallop and border around the image layer are part of the paper's design. The only embellishment added is the single bling in the center of the flower. I used Attitude Ruby colored with Copics for my focal image. I made this for the challenge at Totally Stampalicious this week...make it clean! You should definitely head over to see what Becky and Joycelyn are offering up this week for a prize...they've been going a little crazy lately with great prizes, so it's definitely worth checking out!!

Another TriFold gift card holder

This is another of the double gift card holders I've made lately. This one had a matching card to go with it and was made as the sample for a class at Priceless Scrapbooks. The papers are Bo Bunny and the stamps are from Hero Arts. Here is a shot of the gift card holder in the open position:

Wrap It Up!

Christmas is getting close and it's just about time to get things wrapped up! That's the challenge for this week over at Totally Stampalicious...the make come kind of packaging or topper. I used a tutorial I had in my stash from a technique challenge that was done several years ago on SCS by Lynn Mercurio. My project is a double gift card holder and I used Santa Called Stella and colored her with Copic markers.
The folder opens up to reveal two pockets for holding gift cards. I am not sure, but I think this will go to my DIL. My son bought her an e-reader for Christmas, so I can get her a Barnes and Noble gift card to load some books onto it and also get her a gift card to one of her favorite clothing stores. I will add sentiments when I know exactly where I will use it.

This is a fun project that seems difficult the first time you do it, but once you have worked your way through it, it's not bad at all!
Thanks for stopping in today!!

Reindeer on a Little Yellow Bicycle

Wanted to quickly share this card with you. I made it a few weeks ago and never posted it. The reindeer image is from little Great Impressions. Had to have him!! Those stars on his butt are just the cutest!! The papers and felt accessories are from Little Yellow Bicycle. Everything on this card came from Priceless Scrapbooks...the LSS.
Can't wait to finish some things with the new glitters we were playing with down there!! So pretty! A bunch of us got together and bought a few colors each and then split up the colors in little jars. One of the girls had a little electronic scale so we could weigh them all out...too funny. Got a lot of weird looks until they understood what we were doing. Then people were setting up their own little groups to try to do the same thing. When it was all done, we had 14 colors and had only bought 3 jars of glitter (one of the girls missed the second buy, so the math doesn't seem to work out). Probably won't get to play with the glitter until next weekend.
I'll be posting a new challenge card for Totally Stampalicious tomorrow, so stop back by to see what the girls over there are up to. Thanks for stopping in!

Woo Hoo...Anything Goes!!

It's time for another challenge from Totally Stampalicious and Anything Goes!!! How's that for a simple challenge. And here's a direct quote from the TS blog....
Now we expect to have quite a few players for this one...
but we've NEVER had 100 players or more! Soooo, if we go OVER the 100 player mark, we're going to give away a PRIZE valued at OVER $30!
  Now, how's that for a deal???
  For this one, I pulled out one of the new sets in the Bugaboo line from Totally Stampalicious. I colored the image with Copic markers. I stamped her twice, once on white and once on the dsp. I fussy cut the white layer and placed her over the other to match the tiny details on her outline that I couldn't cut out. Added some tiny half-pearls for her earrings. 
The dsp is from BoBunny and is part of the incredible bargains I got at Priceless, the LSS, on Black Friday. That's the only place I went on Friday as I don't like crowds and lines well enough to do the whole shopping thing. I just hung out there all day and played with new toys among some of my favorite people! Trish had these awesome paper packs for $11.99. Each pack included 50 sheets of Bo Bunny papers, most of them double sided and some doilies with cute edges, two sheets of chipboard, two sheets of rub-ons, a shaped book kit, and a package of buttons or bling!!! I guess I did do some Christmas shopping because I bought several of them!! I used one of the doilies and coordinating papers to make this card. I cut the doily so it covered most of the card with a right angle in the corner.
The sentiment was added by using a scalloped oval punch on a scrap of card stock that was folded in half. I didn't insert the paper all the way into the punch, meaning I left the folded edge partially unpunched. That gave me a flap under which I could hide the second half of the sentiment.
I'm pretty happy with this. After I made it, Bonnie and I were running around the whole store coming up with ideas for using some of those other oddly shaped papers that we never knew what to do with! Great...something new to collect!!!

Black Friday creations....frosty

When I got to Priceless on Friday (the LSS) she had just gotten in some wonderful new papers and accessories from Bo Bunny and it was love at first sight!!! The line is called Midnight Frost and I immediately snatched up the 6x6 pad, bling, stamps, brads, and some other goodies to match. The top layer is stamped up with blue chalk inks and silver embossing powder using the stamps. The sentiment is also stamped, but I used a recently purchased set from Close to My Heart. Ribbon is May Arts. And lookie!!!! I even finished the inside!!!

Thanks for stopping in today. Off to play with the grandbaby and Play-doh!! Have a wonderful day!!

Something to warm you up!

I attempted something a little different for this week's challenge at Totally Stampalicious to make a card or project with the theme of a hot cuppa.... I used an older set from Totally Stampalicious, but one of my favorites...Coffee Brawd. I used the digi version to print the images on computer printer iron-on transfer sheets that I picked up at one of the craft stores. It really worked pretty well! The images transferred easily and colored up nicely with Copic markers. The only glitch I had was forgetting to reverse the sentiment image when I printed it. It was easy enough to trace over the outline with a black Copic and then color in the other side. Since the Copic color is visible on the reverse side anyway, it really didn't matter.

Here's a peek at a creation using the new Old Truck Gus set. 

I decided that Old Gus wouldn't be driving around in a shiny old truck, so I added some rust spots to his ride. The image colored with Copic markers. I used a combination of images to create my background and sponged everything up to age it.

My second project for the hop is this card made with the Stella Cupcake set, only in this case she has a cup of coffee. There are actually two images with this sets and plenty of sassy sentiments to go with both of them. 
For this one I used some Bo Bunny papers to paper piece some coffee mugs from the Coffee Brawd set, a TS classic in my opinion!! The image is again colored with Copic markers. Can you see her glittery accents and the sparkly steam on the coffee cups?

Picking up the pieces...

Seems like that's what we've been doing around here for the past week. We woke up a week ago today to the tragic news of the loss of five neighborhood children in a horrible house fire. The children ranged in age from 6 to 15 and the oldest three went to the school where I teach. The oldest boy was in the classroom next to mine and had been with that teacher for three years, so it was especially hard on that teacher who is also one of my dearest friends. Yesterday, we attended the memorial service and cried yet again. The mother and father of these children lost all of their babies and I can't imagine how they will find the strength to go on. The family will need the support of many for a along time to come to survive this tragedy so if you find it in your heart to send some extra prayers to the Jordan family, I know it will be greatly appreciated!!
With things being such a mess here this past week, I am a little late getting my card posted for this week's challenge for Totally Stampalicious. The challenge this week was paper piecing and I just don't use this technique nearly enough! I used Shopping Cart Stella for my card and some new papers from Basic Gray. Had to fussy cut the layer around my Nestie label as the next size was just too large for my liking. The layout is from one of the sketches I spotted this week out there in blogland and I'm sorry to say I can't remember which one. But rest assured...the layout is scraplifted!! The ribbon is some new stuff that just hit the shelves at the LSS, Priceless Scrapbooks. It's from May Arts and has such a gorgeous shimmer to it and makes perfect bows!! Comes in like a kagillion fabo colors, too and I had to have every single one!!!
There is also going to be a new release this Thursday with a blog hop to celebrate. Join us at 9 pm Thursday for some fantastic eye candy from the design team and some fabulous prizes from Totally Stampalicous!!! The new release will feature four more new sets of Bugaboo images available in acrylic for the first time! These are some of the cutest sets yet, so be sure to stop back in for the blog hop!! See you there!!!

Monochromatic Blue Challenge

Wow!! I actually got a card done for this week's challenge at Totally Stampalicious and got it uploaded in the same week! This week's challenge is to make a monochromatic card in blues. I used Let It Snow Stella for my card from the Bugaboo line. The card stock is Pacific Point and Neehah super smooth white. DSP is from a Tim Holtz stack I picked up at Micheal's on the clearance rack. I used Copic markers to color the image and added some stickles and glittery flocking. I used a a sketch from I (heart) to Stamp for the layout.
There is some exciting things happening at Totally Stampalicious and you can get all the details on their blog but I will tell you that they are looking for guest designers and you could be one of them. For more information on how to apply for a guest designer position, just go to the TS blog and read up on the details. There is more excitement to come, too! We will be having a new release blog hop in the near future with some super cute new images for the Bugaboo line! Be sure to check back for more details!

Purple and Teal Magnolia

This is a card I made just because I wanted to!! I don't get to do this very often. I picked up these papers at a sale at Priceless over the summer and just built my card around them. The image is one of my neglected Magnolia images that had never seen ink. Thanks for stopping in!!

Case a DT member....really late!

A couple of weeks ago, I made this card for the Monday challenge at Totally Stampalicous, but I never got it uploaded. Things got so crazy around here....couldn't believe it!! Anyway, the challenge was to case one of our DT members and I decided to case this card from Pat aka Kokirose. I used Bubble Bath Scarlette and Linen Closet papers from DCWV.

Angel Bear

Where does the time go? I had this post hanging in cyberspace for over a week!!! I never even got my TS challenge card posted last week and now it's time for another one!! Things have been sooooo crazy here. Adult children moving, switching out major appliances, planning trips out of state, being voted Rookie Teacher of the Year at my school....sheesh!!! I hardly know which end is up. I am so far behind on my stamping commitments!! I'll go ahead and get this one posted and then maybe I'll get last week's challenge card posted later this week. I know there is no hope of getting one done for this week's challenge before the next one arrives! 
Here's another card made with one of the new sets of stamps from Totally Stampalicous featuring their Bugaboo line. I stamped the bear on kraft card stock and colored him with Copic markers and white Smooch paint. Yes, I finally bought another Momento ink pad, so I was able to color with my Copics again!! I've missed them!!
The papers are from Bo Bunny and are actually the scraps from the card I made a week ago that was inspired by the shirt of one of my students. The flower is made from punched card stock and shaped while wet. You can't see the shimmer that is one this flower. I sprayed it with pearl glimmer mist.

A Summery Magnolia in October

I stamped up this cute Magnolia image that I've had for quite some time to go with my newly acquired Magnolia butterfly die. I doubled the layers to get a butterfly with both pink and purple on it. Lots of pink, purple, and bling on this card! Papers are SU! Image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.

Snowflake Challenge

Hi all!
After a glorious weekend of chamber of commerce weather, it almost seems a shame to think about the upcoming cold that will soon be upon us. Today's challenge at Totally Stampalicious is make a card with at least three snowflakes on it. Here is my sample for the challenge. i used Let it Snow Stella from the newly released stamp sets from Totally Stampalicious' Bugaboo line. I love the sentiments that go with this set because they pretty much sum up my feelings about snow. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty stuff....on the news, on a calendar, on a Christmas card...but I moved to Florida at the tender age of 18 because I knew I didn't want to deal with the dreaded white stuff! I have never put the Let it Snow sentiment on a card before, because I really don't want it to. But this set allows for the exception because on the inside I was able to add...."somewhere else!"
The big fuzzy snowflake in the background is a dollar store find. There were six of these babies on the card and I knew it would be perfect for this challenge. The little ones on the front were punched from a shimmery brown paper with a Martha Stewart punch. The papers are some SU! dsp from years ago called Wintergreen. I loved this paper so much, I hoarded it and used very little of it. I uncovered it in my stash of Christmas papers when I dug them out of the closet this weekend. I think I'll be using them again before the season is over!!!

On Blitzen!

Another card using one of the newly released Totally Stampalicious images from their Bugaboo line. This time I used the second image from the Christmas JJ set. After I had almost completed coloring the image I realized that her dress is a reindeer costume, so my colors are exactly accurate for a reindeer....oops! Added lots of sparkle to go with the sparkle on these papers from SEI from last year's Christmas line. Still love 'em and have tons of them. The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The fibers are from the same SEI line.
Looks like it's going to be a great Sunday. Kyli is here and the weather is beautiful. On top of that, DH ordered BBQ ribs and chicken from one of the local kids' sports leagues, so I won't have to cook this evening! Yeah!!! Happy Sunday to all!!!

Naughty Stella

What a wonderful weekend this is shaping up to be!!! Got to play with the girls at Priceless last night, going to get that sweet little granddaughter in just a little bit, and I didn't bring home one piece of work that had to be done for school!! I can just relax and do what Lynnor wants to do for the first time since school started back!
Here is a card I made last night using some of my new toys and some stuff that has been in my stash for a really long time. The image is from the newly released stamp sets from Totally Stampalicious' Bugaboo line. This image is called Naughty Stella.....hehehehehe!! The other new stuff is the Nestabilities die I added to my collection last night. I punched all of the holes going around the border by hand, so they are not all perfectly aligned...but that's what makes it a handmade card...right?
I packed up all my papers from Christmas past and used some of them on this card. The pink snowflake paper has the prettiest shimmer to it and I love the big glittery snowflakes on the bg paper that is by Reminisce. Swapped a couple of Dollar Tree snowflakes I had picked up the other day for the pink double-sided ribbon and my card was done! Oh yeah....added stickles too to go with all the glitter on the snowflakes!
Well, off to get my sweet girl. I think we'll stop at the park and play a little before I bring her back to the house!! Another gorgeous day, so I think we should enjoy the fabulous weather before the cold stuff gets here!! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Thankful Challenge

The challenge for the week at Totally Stampalicious is to make a project or card with the Thankful theme. Well, I have to admit that the theme is a stretch for this project, but it was the first thing that popped into my head, so I went with it. I immediately thought of this cute Shopping Cart Stella image from TS when I saw these 5 x 7 inch photo sleeves to go on the fridge. I thought it would make a great place to jot down those things you need to pick up from the store. While I hate grocery shopping, I am so thankful that my hubby and I have the means to purchase our own groceries and provide our own transportation to the places we need to go. So many people don't have these options.
The colors for my project were inspired by the shirt that was worn by one of my students on Friday. I just loved it and he was so tickled that I wanted to take a pic of it to use as a color guide for my stamping that night. I used BoBunny papers to match up the colors that you can see in my student's shirt below:

The blue-ish green in his shirt is a little brighter than those in the papers, but it works for me. Nestabilities and an EK Success punch provided the shapes for the project. The clear sleeve works perfectly with a dry erase marker that is kept handy with a couple of Velcro dots.

Another Halloween card

I made this a few weeks ago and never uploaded it. I had gotten some new toys at Priceless and decided to play right away....I love this purple tulle!!! The image is from Great Impressions and has very little coloring on it, so it made up very quickly. I'm pretty sure the papers are by Echo Park. I used a Coluzzle to cut a small frame around the image, stopping when I got to parts of the image. Then I went back and fussy cut around the parts of the image that went over the frame. Nothing too fancy here, but it was fun to make. The sentiment I put on the inside says "If the broom fits, fly it!" and is also from Great Impressions.

Witchin' Halloween Challenge

Totally Stampalicious is having a Halloween challenge this week and they have really gotten into the "spirit" of things. They are offering lots of great incentives for participation this week, so head over to check it out. The regular prize is bigger and there's a way to get the digi file for the Witch Brawd image I used for my card for free!!!
I used one of the sentiments, the witch, and the cauldron images for my card and colored them with pencils and Gamsol. The background was made by using a portion of a piece of scrapbook paper that I got back when I had first started stamping. It's been sitting in my Halloween collection for years!! I added some Stickles to some of the branches and some of the witch's clothing. I popped up the images with dimensionals and that's it for this spooky Halloween card.

Vintage Snowman

Most of what I've been making lately is Halloween themed and I really needed a break from it, so while I was at the crop at Priceless Friday night, I went down and picked out this cute snowman image from Impression Obsession. I have been wanting him since he showed up in the store a couple of weeks ago. I didn't bring any Christmas stamps with me that night, so it was the perfect excuse to add this cutie to my collection of about 5000 snowman images!! Well, it may not be that many, really, but they do take up a whole corner of my closet in the stamp room!
I was also excited to see that Trish had gotten in the 8 x 8 stack of the Graphic 45 Christmas papers. I had gotten the 12 x 12 stack, but for cards, I really prefer the smaller papers. Makes the patterns closer and better for small projects. Into the basket it went! She had also gotten in some new Nesties, so I added a set of those to my collection, too!! And here's the card!! Still haven't found my Momento black ink, so I am still working with the Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol for coloring. My Copics are feeling very neglected!! I guess I'll just have to buy a new ink pad! It's probably hiding in the same place as all four of my paper piercers!!!
Well, have a great Sunday! I'm going to spending some more time with granddaughter Kyli and then get some lesson plans done. Maybe even some stamping!!!
