MoJo 341 - CurtainCallInspirationChallenge

This card was creating for 2 challenges MOJO MONDAY with Verve and Stacey's Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge -- Confetti Crush. I used very old stamp from Conners Collections to make the flowers. I stamped them in Versa Mark then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I used my Copics in 3 shades each of pink, blue and yellow. The leaves are punched from the Build a Bird punch from Stampin' Up! I colored them with 2 shades of green Copics. The polka dotted velum is from Stampin' Up! The sentiment is from Sweet & Sassy Stamps #1074 Easter Lily.

Thanks for Looking.

ColorThrowDown 286

Close Up!

Color Throw Down #286 - Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. I didn't have any masking tape so I used Post-It notes, sitcky edges to pick up the ink from the pad and transfer it to the cs. It took several Post - Its to for each color but it was fun and I was impressed with the look. The tree stamp is from Inkadinkado.

Thanks for Looking!

Crazy4Challenges #223 - sketch.

I am crazy 4 challenges!!! I loved this sketch. So fun and I recently purchased a Grand Calibur machine and some new dies and embossing folders. The flourishes on my card are one of the "free" dies that came with my purchase. It's a tree. I just poked the trunks up underneath my panels, added some bows and seed beads and I'm lovin' it!
I sponged some SU Strawberry Slush ink and spritzed with some Old Olive ink mixed with alcohol, and Champagne Mist. I used my markers to dab ink onto my stamp and then huffed and stamped.

If you enjoy challenges or sketches or both, head on over to Crazy 4 Challenges.

Put Your Hands Up

That's right! That's what I said. Put your hands up, Pilgrim! LOL
Whoo doesn't love this guy???

I purchased a template last week for this little guy and his friends. I'll post them when I get to making them. Lynn Pratt is such a talented designer! The minute I saw this "Sheriff" I knew I wanted to create him. And I am so happy with the way he turned out! I followed Lynn's directions as closely as possible. I didn't have all the punches she used and all the same colors cs but I made do and I think he's perfect!
If you'd like to get your own "posse" check out Lynn's designs at

Loved this soft color combo. The colors just play so well off of one another. I've used my fav Tim Holtz stamp (older stamp) with 2 SU punches, ink, pearls, cs and some decorative paper from a Crate Paper stack designed by Maddie Holmes.

Get Inspired @ Dynamic Duos!!!

Another fun play date with my gal Deb. She bought these fabulous dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs and we just had to play with them today!!!

The first one is poles with little banner hanging. Too cute!

The second one is a park bench and I have to say, I liked making both but my fav is the park bench.

We did manage to get a couple other cards made as well but I didn't get pix of them.

Below is my happy buddy, Seamus Bobby MaGee. He had just gotten back from the groomers and was looking too handsome NOT to share.

JFF in a week

Over the past couple of weeks I have had a U.T. Or Bladder infection and haven't felt my mojo working. So the fact that I created anything in that time period is amazing to say the least. Still I managed to crank out these beauties!

#1 My grandson, Zackary participated in a Geography Bee in his elementary school. He WON!!!
The very next day he had to compete in a written Bee for National Geographic! we participated in the bee the next day but we haven't gotten the results yet. 

I received some new supplies in the mail last week and this and I did play a little while. Also, my wonderful hubs stopped in at Big Lot and bought me some marked down crafty items. 

In the card below, I used my Unity Stamp of the Week. I love these little rubber rain boots. They are just too cute! I stamped the image onto a polka dot dsp. Then I used Ranger Pearls and dotted the petals of the flowers on the boot stamp. Then I went over the entire image with my crystal effects.

The card below was created using products from a kit I purchased from My Craft Channel.
Loved that little bird! The ribbons are from the goodies hubs bought me. The paper doily is from Stampin' Up!

This one was created using some of the decorative CS my youngest daughter gave me for Christmas. The stamp is from Stampin' Up! I colored with Copics.


This Geisha is from an old set but I lost the packaging so. I don't know who it is from. I started coloring with my Prisma Color Pencils. 

Still coloring

Finished coloring and putting it all together.


Top view!

All done! Hope you found something inspiring here today.

Fun in the New Year

Hubs gave me the new 25th Anniversary set of Copics for Christmas as per my Wish List request! So excited! I am really enjoying playing with them.
Fence scene is a printed RAK from my Friend Debbie A. and the flowers on the right are from a stamp set my friend Deb S. let me borrow.

Another printable from Debbie A. below.

Play Date with Deb S. resulted in the following beauties.

I'm sorry I haven't been very vocal lately. I have two excuses... I got a bad cold before Thanksgiving that is still hanging on and the holidays just kept me busy, busy, busy!

I hope you were all blessed with beautiful holidays spent with those you love and hold near and dear. Happy New Year Yall!

Blue Jay

This is a blue jay stamp that I borrowed from my friend Deb.

This is my interpretation of the stamp. I stamped on regular white cs. Then I colored with Copics. When I had completed the coloring with Copics I added white gel pen to make the snow on the branches. Then I used a dauber and shaded in the edges. 

Then I used my Versa Mark pen and wet the entire bird, sprinkled SU! Irredescent embossing powder on it and heated it up. This was so the bird would look wet in the winter snow. I added stickles to make my snowflakes.

This is my completed card. Hope you like it!

Merry Christmas 2013

Last week, my gal pals and I got together for our annual Christmas shindig at my friend Deb's house. We ate, we drank sodas and coffee and we generally got Merry!

We exchanged gifts and we made cards. Below are the cards I made that day.

#1 Is a Christmas card I made for Deb. It was a lovely flat dsp. But add some stickles and some glittery stickers and a hand stamped and hand colored red bird and it just takes on that "Christmas" spirit!

#2 is a Christmas card I made for my friend Lorna. Island Indigo has long been a favorite color cs for me. Mix it with silver, a snowflake embossing folder, a blingy snowflake sticker and some stickles and voila! a wintery Christmas card!

#3 is a mishmash of cards I made that day. The reindeer and Santa cards were my own creations. The Snowman and the ornament were designed by Lorna and the 3 little mice was designed by Deb.

#4 Is another mishmash of cards.
The cream and pink card was designed by me. The other 3 are designed by my other friend Debbie A.

That was such a F U N day! We laughed and enjoyed each others company and shared our own Christmas spirit with one another.

Merry Christmas Y'all!
