Caffeine Trip

Hi everyone! It's Monday, but that's ok because it's going to be a short week for me! We have Friday off, so I'm looking forward to a short week.

The Saturday Spotlight blog has a challenge going on to create something with coffee in mind. They even provided this picture as inspiration.I just got a coffee-themed set from Paper Makeup Stamps called Caffeine Trip, so I thought I'd play. Crazy 4 Challenges has a nice sketch challenge this week (love them!), so I thought I'd use that as well.So I combined the two challenges and came up with this.I wanted to use the blue and brown from the inspiration picture, so I went with Basic Grey's Marrakech dp. I pulled the colors out of the print to color the coffee cup. The steam is popped up for more dimension. The sentiment is from the same set.

Pretty simple card, but I'm very happy with it (probably because it was so simple to make)! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Our Creative Corner Challenge

I read on Silke Ledlow's blog that this was her last challenge on Our Creative Corner, so I had to play in her honor! She created a sketch for the challenge, which I love! I loved the sketch, but changed it a bit to accommodate the image I wanted to use. I turned the sketch on its side and placed the sentiment differently. I think that will be ok, don't you?This stamp set is from WPlus9 Design Studio and it's called Just A Note. They sponsored our Just Us Girls challenge a few weeks ago, and I loved this set so I purchased it.

We were invited to our friends' house for dinner a few weeks ago and I needed to send a thank you card. They are very musical....they have their own band (he plays base and she is the lead singer) and perform frequently around town and she is a piano teacher as well. So I thought a music-themed card would be in order.

The dp is from Making Memories called FaLaLa. I stamped the music staff in chocolate chip on PTI's vintage cream and the sentiment in riding hood red. I then aged the piece using creamy caramel and close to cocoa inks. The ribbon is from SU called Alpine (from last year). The brown piece under the image was run through the distressed stripes folder, and the red layer was punched with SU's new border punch.

That's it for today! Have a great Sunday, and thanks for stopping in today!

Just Us Girls - Template Challenge #26

Are you ready for another Just Us Girls template challenge sponsored by My Time Made Easy? Mona is our hostess this week. Have you been to her blog lately? Fabulously talented girl!Lauren Meader has generously given the JUGs DT a new template to peek called Slip Cover. It will be released on April 1st. It's a cute box that's intended to hold cards, but you'll see the DT and Lauren using it in a variety of ways. Here's mine.Lauren's templates are SO EASY to make (thank goodness!)! However, this cute little box took FOREVER to make! And NOT because of the template! I knew the color palette I wanted so I pulled up the template in the SCAL software (that I purchased at Canda Craft) and printed it out on my Cricut. I also cut the navy mat out and then reduced the size a bit (on SCAL) to cut out the white piece. The box came together in litereally minutes! Very little adhesive was needed as well. So what took so long? That little bit of a white mat! I redid it 3 times!

First, I stamped the grid in navy ink using Argyle Amazement from MTME. Then I stamped the floral image, also from Argyle Amazement, in Memento tuxedo black. The flowers were individually colored with copic markers. Now in take one, all the flowers were colored green. But when I put the pretty ribbon (probably a $1 find at AC Moore) on the box, it didn't look right. On take two I used the three different colors for the flowers and loved how it matched the ribbon. But....I stamped it on the wrong side, so the bottom edge did not match the edge of the box! UUGGGHHHHH!!!! Take three is what you see above, finally!! After coloring all the flowers, it was too white, so I overstamped it in Green Galore ink with a small script stamp I have (company unknown). I loved the way that looked! Each flower center was embellished with star dust stickles.

The flowers are Primas, and the coral one beneath all of them was cut with the Fanciful Flowers cut file from MTME. It was really cool to cut just one of the 8 images on that cut file. I ungrouped them in SCAL, then deleted all the ones I didn't want. Then I put a scrap piece of coral cardstock on the Cricut mat and cut! Just like using a punch with a scrap!

The bow was made with the Bow Easy tool (you can google it to find a variety of places that sell it...I got mine at a stamp show). I finally figured out how to use that thing after watching video tutorials and practicing making bows! This one is a double bow, which I think looks extra special. The sentiment is from So Sentimental, again from MTME. I stamped it in navy, punched it with a scallop punch, and then sponged green ink around the edge.

I think that's it! Whew...lots to say! Now if you want to play our JUGs challenge, you do not have to use a MTME template (although MTME has one for free called Cutesy Cover which you could use). All you have to do is use a template to make a 3-D project. There will be one randomly chosen winner who will have their choice of a FREE template from MTME! They are really so much fun to make! You can get all the details and see what the JUGs DT has done on the JUGs blog. Here are direct links to the DT blogs to leave them some love and see more details of their projects:

This is Stephanie's last week as our Featured Designer and I'd like to thank her for all her wonderful projects! Thanks for stopping by today and reading through this long post! Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Yesterday was my Mom's 81st birthday (and I forgot to take a picture of her....ugghh!). But here is a picture of her in December with her new great-granddaughter, Ava.I had her over for her favorite dinner that I make...Wingless Buffalo Chicken Pizza. I got this recipe from Rachael Ray and we all love it! Being from Buffalo, we all love our chicken wings! I also had her sister, my favorite aunt, Joannie over for cake and coffee. Anyway, I made this card for her. My mom loves yellow and so I thought this floral image I just got from Gina K designs called Spring Florals, was perfect.I used a dp from Basic Grey's Origins and the yellow piece (PTI's Lemon Tart) was run through an SU folder. I used some Certainly Celery twill ribbon to tie it all together and some PTI buttons as an accent. The sentiment is from the same Spring Florals set. I added some yellow and star dust stickles to the image and swirled some Certainly Celery ink around the image and sentiment. The card is a 4 3/4" square to fit my 5" envelope. My mom really loved the card and what was in it...a gift card to her favorite grocery store (it's what she always asks for!).

It was a really nice first day of spring yesterday, and I'm hoping today will be just as nice (although I think it's going to rain...better than snow)! Enjoy your Sunday, and thanks for stopping in today!

Stamps: Spring Florals (Gina K designs)

Just Us Girls - Color Challenge

Happy Spring everyone! Today at around 1:30 it will finally be Spring! I'm hostessing the Just Us Girls challenge this week, and I thought Spring colors were in order for this week.I surfed around the Pottery Barn Kids website to find something in the colors I wanted, and found this picture. It was perfect for what I was looking for! I loved all the pale colors! Here's what I came up with.I have a bunch of Magnolia stamps and just do not use them enough. I purchased a few Magnolia Easter stamps last year, but never used this one. I just love that little bunny she's holding! She's colored with about 20 different copic markers (so I did not write them down!). I used Basic Grey's Urban Prairie dp. The floral dp is more green than it looks in the picture. The sketch was based on Mercy Kerin's sketch from a couple of weeks ago. I feel my sewing straight stitches needs work! They are a little crooked! The roses are Primas I picked up at my LSS a few weeks ago, and the nesties are new as well. I think this is a very interesting shape.

The Just Us Girls team, as well as Stephanie Kraft, March Featured Designer, have done a beautiful job with these colors. You can see their work on the JUGs blog, but here are links to their blogs.

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a great weekend!

Lucky Me to Have You!

Hello everyone! It's Monday...again! The beginning of a new week and I have a card I made for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I wanted to do a St. Patty's Day card for my MIL. She always has all of us over to her house for Reuben sandwiches on St. Patty's Day! Yum!!! The sketch was perfect for this very simple card. The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps new release called Lucky Me. I altered the sentiment a bit...the stamp says " Lucky me to have a friend like you!" I took out the words "a friend like" because I'm giving it to my MIL. Very easy to do with a marker and a stamp-a-ma-jig. The shamrock image is from a Studio G $1 set. The dp is from Basic Grey's Origins that my friend Cheryl gave me. I purchased the ribbon in the $1 bin at Michael's on a shopping trip with Cheryl too! I just picked up the flowers today at JoAnn's, and they reminded me of carnations, which my MIL loves! So they found a place on this card for her! I felt they needed some leaves, so I punched some with a MS punch out of celery and garden green card stock.

On a side note: my dh and I went to the Irish Center in South Buffalo (a huge Irish community) to have some Guinness and Harp beer, listen to some Irish music, and watch the girls do some Irish dancing. These girls (and two boys) are always so amazing to watch. This group has travelled many times to Ireland for competitions and have won!

Well, that's it for me today. I hope you are celebrating St. Patty's Day this week! Thanks for stopping in...have a great week!

My Last Post as an "INK" Girl!

Happy Sunday everyone! Sundays have been my day to post for Artful INKables, and today will be my last one! My term as an INK girl has ended and I have one last project to share with you. I used one of the newest sets called Sexy & Sweet.
I've had this idea to make a mini notebook using this set. I covered the front of the notebook with paper that looks like notebook paper (I just bought it at my LSS, but I can't remember who makes it!). I colored only part of the sentiment with a red marker. The actual sentiment says "You're on My To Do List". I cut the image and mat using nesties, and added the ribbon and glitter dots. The back is covered with navy cardstock. I have one of these in my purse that I use as my inspiration notebook. How many times have you gone into a store and liked a color combo or the layout of a card at the card shop? I jot these things down in it to use later. This set has a lot of suggestive sentiments and other images that I wouldn't use, so I wanted to show how you can take this set and use it in other ways. I like that!

I'd like to thank Kristin, owner of AI, for asking me to be a member of her Design Team this term and the other INK girls on this team for a fun ride! And I'd like to congratulate and send best wishes to the new INK girls! Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by today! Love your comments!

Just Us Girls Challenge

It's another Saturday and another challenge from Just Us Girls. Today, Pam Imholz has challenged us to do a flap card. You can find a great tutorial on SCS here. They are very fun to do and are very petite! So cute! I just purchased this dp from My Mind's Eye called Bloom and Grow from my LSS. I just loved the colors! I paired it with apricot appeal and old olive. I chose this image from Our Daily Bread called I Am the Way. I purchased this Easter set last summer because of this lily. I love Tiger Lillies. My dh gave me some when we were first dating, and I've loved them ever since. I even had some in the flower arrangements for our wedding! Anyway, I colored the flower with copics and added some yellow and star dust stickles on it. The flap was cut with the new Labels 13 nesties and embossed it with an embossing folder. It's held closed with magnets from Basic Grey. I made this into a sympathy card (I need about four of them unfortunately). The sentiment is from PTI's With Sympathy. I stamped the flower image in the corner and swirled some Apricot Appeal around the edges of the white panel.

The JUGs girls have some really great flap cards to share with you on the
JUGs blog. Stop by to get some inspiration, then do one yourself and play along. Here are links to the girls' blogs....stop by and say hello!

Makeup for the Weekend - Paper Makeup Stamps

It's Friday! Sooo glad for this day to arrive! Now I just can't wait until 3:30 when I can start my weekend! :-)

Today Paper Makeup Stamps has another challenge for you. Maria Gurnsey came up with a fabulous color challenge: Red, Blue, and Kraft. For some reason, a nautical theme came into my mind. And as luck would have it, Paper Makeup Stamps has a set that fit the bill: Sailing By.
I love these colors with this set! I started my process with a sketch (of course) from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #59 by Karen Giron. I took the largest of the two anchors from the set and stamped it onto a piece of Boxer dp from Basic Grey. I cut it out, ran it through my Xyron machine (great for paper piecing...dust that little machine off!), and placed it on a piece of kraft paper which I cut with a circle nestie. That was placed onto a real red piece which was cut with another nestie. I swirled some Night of Navy ink on both kraft pieces. The sentiment (also from Sailing By) was stamped in Night of Navy. The navy polka dot piece is from Basic Grey's June Bug dp. I layered all that on a real red piece, added some navy and red ribbon, and placed that on a kraft base. The brass accents are from the jewerly department at Michael's. I just attached them with glue dots.

So do you love this color combo? Why not stop by the PMS blog and participate in the challenge. You can also see more examples by the DT to get some inspiration.

Thanks for stopping in today and I'll see you back here tomorrow for the Just Us Girls weekly challenge...we have a great technique challenge for you so stop by! Enjoy yor weekend!

Think INK Tuesday Challenge

Happy Monday everyone! My LEAST favorite day of the week., but I guess it's needed to get to Friday, Saturday, and Sunday right? :-)
I have my next to last post as an INK girl for you today. The Artful INKables Think INK Tuesday challenge this week is a sketch that Holly McMillen created. LOVE sketches and this is a great one!This image and sentiment are from the new set called Sexy and Sweet. I used two of my favorite spring colors to work with this and purple. I picked up this Doodlebug Designs dp called Plum Blossoms from my LSS a couple of weeks ago, and it was just sitting on my table waiting to be used. I used certainly celery and lavendar lace card stock which matched up with it perfectly. The ribbon is also certainly celery.

I think the sentiment is a hoot! And it's so true! Have you been to the lingerie department lately? You can really spend an awful lot of money for that stuff!If you like sketches, stop by the AI blog and link up your card for a chance to win a grab bag of AI stamps! Thanks for peeking in at my blog today, and have a great week!

Just Because

***If you are looking for the Paper Makeup Stamps blog hop, please read this post then scroll down to the next post where you'll find the PMS post. Thanks! :-)***

I only have a few more posts to share with you before my DT spot on Artful INKables expires. I had an idea to make a cute little candy/mint box that you could give to someone "Just Because". Here's what I came up with using the new set Any Birdy Home?
In this set there are two flowers and one leaf to compliment the three beautiful birdhouses (see my posts using two of them here and here). Here is a way to use them individually. I just stamped three flowers and seven leaves, colored them, cut them out, and created this sort of swag on the top of the round tin container. I covered the clear lid with this dp from SU called Sweet Always. Since the lid is clear and I wanted the same dp to show on the inside (and not the other side of this piece), I put another piece on the inside of the lid as well. I took my colors from the dp to color the flowers. I like this combo! You can really see the star dust stickles on the flowers and leaves. The "Just Because" sentiment is from another new mini set called Fanciful Flowers.The sides of the tin were covered with SU ribbon in Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink grosgrain. I put some Cadbury Mini Eggs inside the tin. You could also put some mints in there. I'll be back maybe tomorrow or Tuesday with a Think INK Tuesday challenge. My favorite type of challenge....a sketch! Thanks for stopping in and have a great week!

Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop and Release Day!

Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to the Paper Makeup Stamps March blog hop! We have a "Monster of a Hop" for you today....we are sneaking our new monsters! You should have arrived from Dawn Knight's blog. If you just happened to stop by (thank you for that), you should go to the PMS blog to follow the hop and pick up the letters that will spell out a code to get you 15% off the entire March release! It's a great release, too!

The cute little monster I have to share with you today is Buzz.

This image just makes me smile! Buzz comes as one stamp with one bee and a trail. I cut the bee and trail off to be a separate stamp. Then I inked up the bee several times and then pierced the trails behind them. I chose this Basic Grey Lemonade dp because it sort of looked like a honeycomb pattern. I paired it with SU's Bermuda Bay cardstock and ribbon. The sentiment is actually positioned horizontally, but it didn't fit that way on my card, so I got out my Stamp-a-ma-jig and inked one word at a time to stack the words. It worked better for me. I guess I could have just cut it in half instead of going through all that! Oh well! I swirled some Bermuda Bay ink around both circles, and then added the silver pearls. This sketch is from Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try.

My letter for you to take with you on your hop is the letter "K". Your next stop on the hop is
Katie's blog. She always has something fabulous to share.Don't forget the release party tonight at 8:00 pm CST in the PMS forum. Hope to see you there!

Paper Makeup Stamps is previewing their Moody Girls today, and there are two new ones! I have Moody for Flowers to show you today. I LOVE this Moody Girl! I have to admit I love them all! I started with the dp (I bought it at my LSS, but I do not know who makes it!). Makes me think of Spring! I was going to add another piece of coodinating dp that had green in it (but it never made it on the card), hence the green on the Moody Girl's top! The cardstock base and the ribbon are SU's Melon Mambo. I swirled some Pretty in Pink ink around the Moody Girl and the sentiment (another new one this month).

Just Us Girls - Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday favorite day of the week because it's the beginning of the weekend and a Just Us Girls challenge day! I LOVE my JUGs challenges...don't you? It's the first Saturday of March (already?) and a new month of challenges and a new guest designer.

The first Saturday is always a sketch challenge, and the divine Dana Gustafson has a great one for us today!

It's also a special week because we have a new sponsor. A brand new company called WPlus9 Design Studio. The JUGS girls are featuring their first 4 new stamp sets. I was given a set called Love Birds to work with and it was so fun to use! These are very good quality acrylic stamps.

I wanted to use this Basic Grey dp called Origins that my good stamping friend, Cheryl Rowley, gifted to me along with some great images to color and use! Such a sweet gift! I liked this paper because it had the colors I wanted to use in it: yellow for the birds, brown for the tree limb, and green for the leaves. The birds were colored with a Summer Sun marker, stamped and cut out. I then sponged Close to Cocoa around the edge to tone it down a bit and give it some definition. They are popped up on the limb. The leaves are a cluster of hearts that comes with the set. (This set can definitely be used for Valentine's Day!) I added star dust stickles to the leaves for the sparkle I love so much! The sentiment was stamped in the same Certainly Celery as the leaves, and I added some Kaiser pearls underneath it. The strip of flowers was created using an EK Success punch (love that one!) in Summer Sun. The ribbon is a strip of Certainly Celery twill from SU's Sale-a-bration last year. I used a decorative edge punch for the corners. That's it!

Would you like to win two sets of your choice from WPlus9 Design Studio? Enter a card on the JUGs blog using the sketch and you could win!

And since it's the first Saturday of the month, we have a new guest designer...Stephanie Kraft. She has faithfully played in the JUGs challenges and has such a lovely style. Please welcome her. I also hope you stop by the JUGs blog to see what the girls have done. Here are the links to the DT blogs so you can stop by and say hello.

Paper Makeup Stamps Sneak Peek Day 3 - Fairies

It's finally Friday and we are already at day 3 of the sneak peeks for Paper Makeup Stamps March release! You can see all three sneak peek days on the PMS blog. We've had a Word Art sneak day and a Lucky You sentiment set sneak day. Today we are sneaking the Beautiful Day Fairies illustrated by Diem Pascarella. I LOVE the fairies! Here's a new one called Carma Fairy.I love this fairy with the little chicks. So fresh and fun! Just in time for Spring! I think everyone on the east coast is ready for Spring!

I wanted my colors to play off the chicks, so I chose the yellow, brown and white in this SU dp called Good Morning Sunshine. I colored Carma (named after Katie's mom!) accordingly and added some flock to the chicks. I think you can see the flock in this closeup picture. It was so easy to apply. I just used applied some glue using a Quickie Glue pen, then sprinkled on the flock and removed the excess. I like how it was sort of translucent so you can still see the detail on the chicks. Oh, and the sentiment is a new one being released this month as well!

We have another sneak planned tomorrow and Sunday (which will also be our blog hop). The hop will be happening all day and the release party will be at 8:00 CST in the PMS forum. We hope you stop by for some fun and games! And don't forget to comment on the PMS and DT blogs to have the chance to win the entire release. Here's what Katie said on the PMS blog:
