OWH --- SPECIAL REQUEST

Special Request for a Special Unit: Mail!
Cardmakers....we have some sad news for you, and yet an opportunity that we can't pass up!

Captain Dale Goetz, Chaplain, was killed in action just weeks ago, August 30, 2010, in Afghanistan. He is the first Chaplain to die in combat since the Vietnam War - almost exactly 40 years ago. Chaplain Goetz leaves behind a wife and three boys, ages 10, 8, and 13 months.

The Chaplain and his unit had not even been in-country for a month when he and four other Soldiers were lost when their Humvee was hit by an IED. In all, this unit lost 10 Soldiers in their first month - and are dealing with deployment without the one whose job it is to keep up morale: their Chaplain.

OWH is taking on Chaplain Goetz's unit to receive cards, and a box is going out to his Chaplain's Assistant immediately - packed with the best of the best for them!

trick or treat - SP6

Image
trick or treat - SoftPencil Designs. For lack of a better term I call this a flip flap card. I used the tutorial from Natalie with Chi Chi Memories. Although mine didn't turn out quite like the tutorial as my die had a different shape and it was a little difficult to figure where to mark for cutting. But I think it's still very cute. The top image in the photo is the front and the outside of the flap (which will get flipped). The bottom of the image is the flap, flipped up and exposing the inside of the card. I printed extra bats for the inside and the sentiment is a plastic embellishment. All the bats and the little cute kiddoes in Halloween costumes are available in SoftPencil's shop.

Ok, I am not sure how I feel about this card. I think it could be very pretty, but then, I think it may be too busy. Oh well, it's done and that's the best thing I can say about it. I used the color combo for Color ThrowDown112 - red riding hood red, pumpkin pie, and old olive. Stamps are all from Stampin! Up.

fA-LA-LA - Chi Chi Memories Sketch Challenge #15. This sketch was pretty clean and simple. But I punched it up another notch using an oval scallop die. I love this cup and saucer from Chi Chi Memories shop. And when I saw it I knew I wanted to make it into a Christmas card. It reminds me of a cup of hot cocoa and that puts me in the mind of fall and winter, thus my Christmas - y themed card. The randomly picked winner this time will win two adorable images from Chi Chi's a little boy in a bee costume and a little girl in a ladybug costume, just in time for Halloween crafting. Striped cardstock is from Pink Paisley. Embellies are from Keep in Touch kits.

Touch the Hearts - PPC-CC32

Touch the Hearts of Others, as Angels do - Picture Perfect Creations - Color Challenge #32 - pear pizzaz, cajun craze, more mustard. I really like this color combo. I am a FALL person so these color suit me to a T. The stamps I used are all gifts that were given me when I left Houston and moved north of Dallas. So they don't have labels on them to stay who makes them or where they came from. But this Angel stamp is one of my all time favorites and I haven't used it in ages. Sooo. Well, there aren't really any deets for this one except that I have entered it into the challenge at Picture Perfect Creations for this week. TFL T%dles  Peeps! Betty aka ZacksNana

Best Witches - Ward Digis - CHALLENGE w/ Prizes!!!

Image
This little image is called WitchyWoman and it is one of Ward's Digis that we are featuring this week. There's a challenge this week with prizes!!! She really makes a cute little Halloween card whether you want to go all out and glitz her up or even if you want to keep her CAS. I used my computer to color her and I added a cardstock cut out of a bat.  The base of my card is DCWV glitter cards. I added a red tag under the image just to raise it up a bit. The ribbon slide tag is from So Sophie and the ribbon is from Keep In Touch Kits. I am about petered out on Halloween cards. I need to make about 5 Thanksgiving cards and then get really busy with more Christmas cards. I send out about 45-50 Christmas cards every year and I make them all myself. I have also volunteered to make Christmas cards for our service men and women. I believe I have a little over a dozen made so I need to get to crankin' on those. TFL T%dles Peeps!

My Deer, Happy Anniversary - Picture Perfect Creations - Color Combo #31 rose red, river rock, perfect plum, and riding hood red. My plum doesn't show up very true in the photo but it is plum. I stamped my deer and then heat embossed. Then I used my aqua painter to fill in the body. I punched two small holes on either side of the deer's neck and added a very narrow piece of red satin ribbon. I used the same ribbon on the card base. I Used my Scor Buddy to score lines on the river rock cardstock and then I punched holes and added the brads. The deer stamp is from Layers of Color and the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. All inks are Stampin' Up.

Snowflakes - Oh! Alice #32 - Down the Rabbit Hole.Use a hole or circle on your project.  I chose a pre-cut card face for my project. I stamped the 3 snowflakes (flowers from Kaiser Craft CS720 Flowers set). I stamped 2 in pale blue and 1 in light grey. Then I head embossed with clear eb powder. I added the little siler stickers to the centers and attached to my cardstock. The 2 in the back are attached directly to navy cardstock. The one in the front is popped up on dimensionals and I added a little piece of silver twine to give it an ornamental feeling. I stamped Merry Christmas with the Satmipn' Up! Party Punch. I like the poast stamp look of it. 
This card is also entered in the wee Memories challenge CAS and/or Tags. The wee Memories challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week.

Blue Christmas - the sour cream and salt process

Image
Blue Christmas - the sour cream and salt process. Created for my PaperCraftPlanet Cuttlebug-ers Challenge #87. Which is to use your bug to cut a metallic tag ( I used Spellbinders Labels #9). To cut the tag you may have to shim it up quite a bit. But start thin and work your way up. My sandwich is A Plate, B Plate, die, metal, B Plate, Two Tim Holtz grunge board sheets and two pieces of cardstock. I had to run it through my bug two or three times to finally get it cut all the way around the die.
The Sour Cream and Salt Process - Before I get to my card I really want to explain my technique. You see, I know acid will tarnish/distress copper. But, THIS card wreaked havoc on my brain. I just couldn't get it to look the way I wanted, sort of an antiqued copper with some verde de gris. However, that said, I am mighty pleased with my finish product. I took my Copper and cleaned it up with some Ranger Inkssentials water - based Stamp Cleaner. Then I stamped the Reindeer from Layers of Colo…

He started cutting the grass around the church, even painted it and was faithful to be first to attend church on Sundays!
Father Thibodeaux asked him what about dis wonderful change that had done overtook him.
Boudreaux explained, "I heard "Crisis in the Gulf" and if He's dat close, I wanna be good to go!

I added some silver gel pen to the curtains and then I hand wrote the word PEACE and punched it out and added a little black cs for a matte.

New Sheriff in Town - CSCC95 - High Noon

Image
Happy Birthday to the New Sheriff in Town! Today's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge is the movie High Noon. The story of a sheriff who stands alone against a criminal who vows to kill him. Not the town, not even the beautiful Grace Kelly his love will stand up and support him. My card has a lighter theme. I think it's perfect for a young man who's coming of age, "the new sheriff in town" so to speak. I used some red plaid dp to make my western style shirt and I used a piece of red cardstock to make the bandana in the pocket with my SU set Wanted stamps. The star is a piece of rhinestone studded jewelry. It may sound feminine but it looks great as a sheriff's badge. The button is an old Levi's button. TFL T%dles Peeps! Betty aka ZacksNana

Traditions - Cook Up A Card Recipe Challenge

Image
My dear friend Monika Reeck is a DT member @Cook Up A Card Recipe Challenges. She invited me to join in the challenges and this week the challenge RECIPE is this:
3 ~ Autumn Colours
2 ~ Ribbons
1 ~ Poem or verse

I was able to work out the 3 autumn colors and the 1 poem or verse, but for my card only one ribbon cut into 2 pieces would work. Hope that doesn't disqualify me. :O)

I used DCWV and cut out the sunflower and leaves. 7 Gypsies furnished the stickers for my poem and traditions tab. Hambly and My Minds Eye provided the background.

Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the changing of the leaves and the way the world prepares for it's long winter's nap.

If you like recipe challenges then be sure and check out the ladies at Cook Up A Card Recipe Challenges. I'm sure they'd love to see what you come up with using their recipes.

A wise owl once told me... never sleep in a hollow. Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #94 - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I love Johnny Depp and he and Christina Ricci are the best picks for their respective roles in this film. It worked perfectly. There are so many versions of Sleepy Hollow on the market. But if you haven't seen this one, YOU MUST! For my card I used Unity Stamps' - My, What beautiful tree! The owl and the sentiment are from Technique Tuesday. The moon and ribbon tag are from Stampin' Up! The shimmery sky was made using a silver glitter gel pen. I added some wiggly eyes to the owl. The pumpkin and headstone are pieced from an old Halloween (store bought) card.

I used some rubons from Kaiser called Enchanted. I rubbed them on one side of the plastic and then on the other side I used my Permapague markers and colored the images. Then I took my Scotch Craft Stick and put glue on a piece of pale pink cardstock. Then I placed the birdhouse rubon side up on the cardstock. I trimmed around the edges and set it aside to dry. Ribbon, brad, crepe paper, paper flower, cherry dp and the sentiment are all pieces from a kit from CupCardsToGo.

Michu & Ratiny Go To School - SoftPencil & PaperStar Challenges #11

Image
This stair card was inspired by several of SoftPencil's Designs, ALL of  the little animals on the bus are friends of Michu & Ratiny. Even the school is a morphed image of Elizabeth's little house digi. I used Paint Shop Pro and took one little house and placed it on top of another, then I kept adding little houses to the left until I had enough to make my image fit a piece of cardstock 5.5 inches across. I colored the school image with the Paint Shop Pro program. The grass is a couple of scrap pieces of dp I found in my stash. The animals on the bus and Michu and Ratiny are all images from SoftPencil. The bus was cut using my Cricut and the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge (THIS IS THE PAPERSTAR CHALLENGE PORTION OF MY CARD). No animals were harmed in the creating of this card, but they were all colored using Copics and American Crafts markers. Please visit my fellow dt members' blogs and leave them some love.
