JFF


Playing around with my Brushos last night and I came up with this. I got really lucky when the ink dripped down the right hand side of the card. It formed a perfect shadow of a tree. I then used my white gel pen to high light the trunk and branches. I love the sentiment. It is stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed in White embossing powder.

I chose Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Daffodil Delight cs for my card. I Stamped the medium size star from Stampin' Up! set Bright & Beautiful on Whisper White with Versa Mark. Then I heat embossed Scotch Broom Yellow EP from Lindy's Stamp Gang ( I love Lindy's Stamp Gang eps because they have a little shimmer to them. Then I stamped my SU! sentiment in Versa Mark and heat embossed in White. Added a few rhinestones and called this one done!

FM189

Today's card was created using the sketch at Freshly Made #189.

For my card I handcut a tag from SU! Whisper White cs. I started out by stamping SU! Beautifully Baroque in Versa Mark onto my tag and heat embossing with clear embossing powder. I used Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink to smudge onto my tag. Lighter in around the embossed image and darker around the edges. I used a SU! doily for my round element. I handcut a piece of scrap cs for my rub on sentiment. Rhinestones are from SU! I just colored them with my Sharpie markers. Added a scrap of ribbon and called this one complete!

SundayStamps Neutral 103

Today's card is for the Challenge at Sunday Stamps #103
Their challenge this week is Neutrals in blue, white, and two shades of brown. For my blue I chose SU! Soft Sky and Adirondack Stonewashed. The browns I used were SU! Early Espresso and Crumb Cake. 
The stamps are from SU! - Walk in the Wild, Bliss & Engraved Greetings. 
I stamped the moose twice one on my cs and one on post it note to make a mask. I placed the mask over the moose and added the blues to the sky. Then I came back and stamped the bird. I colored in the moose and the bird. the I made my easel card from kraft cs. 
To make my sentiment on the inside, I stamped with sentiment. Let it dry then sprinkled blue Bistre and spritzed with water. This gave me the perfect mix of blue and brown to match my image. I punched a hole and added a brad to make my easel stand. 


All done!

Below is the inspiration for the challenge in case you'd like to play along, here is the link.



My card was also entered into the AAA Cards Challenge #41. Woodland Animals

FERGUS BOBBY MAGEE

We made a new addition to our family on Sunday, May 17, 2015. 
Meet Fergus Bobby MaGee. He's pure Airedale Terrier and he has warmed the cockles of my heart. Although he is probably getting pretty tired of hearing me saying "NO!"
 In the van on our way home to Texas with our little Fergus.

Checking out his new yard.


Below, first bath.


Fergus and his dad.


Mom, stop tying your shoes and pay attention to me.


Another shoe?


Watching Mom do all her getting dressed business in the morning is very tiresome on a puppy.

Freshly Made 186


My card for Freshly Made Challenge #186. Die is from Tim Holtz. DSP and whisper white cs are from Stampin' Up! Die cut piece is water color paper with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Paint in Seedless Preserves. Butterfly is from a SU! set and he is stamped in versa mark and black ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I colored his with Copics. The sentiment is a set that is loose in my stash. I don't know who makes it. Between the watercolor die cut and the DSP is a piece of clear acrylic.

Below is the inspiration from Freshly Made.

Have a blessed day!

Play Date with D & L

The first card you see below is actually the last one I made on our play date. But I am falling hard for Brushos. This card has heavy and light sprinkles of brushos in Turquoise and Purple. The background I sprinkled heavily the Brusho powders and spritzed with water. Then the flowers were done on a separate piece of cs, lightly sprinkled with Brushos then spritzed. The stems and leaves are from my SU Build a Bird punch. I just used Rangers liquid pearls to add the veins.

The next two cards were designed by Lorna on the left and Deb on the right.
Believe it or not, Lorna little patchwork pinwheel is made up of little squares! So cute!
Deb's card was created using dies, papers and stamps from a kit she brought along for us to play with. Love both of these cards!


The next two cards were designed by Lorna on the left and me on the right. Lorna used Stampin' Up! stamps and inks to create this super spring look! We added Wink of Stella to the flower petals and little rhinestones to some of the flower centers.
The card I designed was really quite simple. I used a deep plum colored cs as my base. Then with scraps I started making little pendants in varying sizes and matted them with contrasting colors. I used a piece of white twine to make my string. Added a few rhinestones colored with Sharpies to give a little flash. The sentiment is stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed in white. The stamp is from SU! stamp set Feel Goods.


I love these gals so much. They pick me up when I'm down. They make me laugh. They inspire me. They love me unconditionally. Life is good!

RAK

Random Act of Kindness.

I made this card to send to a 4 y.o. boy with Leukemia. Just a little bit of encouragment.
The face of the card represents the sky and the globe with a plane flying overhead. The plane is on a button and rides in a trough between the center circle and the frame. The plane can fly in a complete circle around the globe.

 On the inside of the card I used a piece of bright yellow cs to keep it light and cheerful. The sentiment reads "Hope is a place somewhere between takeoff and landing."

"I hope today you are having a terrific day!"


Do something KIND for someone today!
