Prize Package

just thought i would brag on how generous the Moxie Fab blog is with their prize packages. i won a package from Little Yellow Bicycle that includes scrapbooking paper; clear cut shapes & frames; chipboard, cardstock & epoxy stickers; fabric popups; journal tablet; 12 mon cards; and a set of baby announcements (which i gave to my husband's cousin's wife who has a baby about 3 weeks old.) i need to pass on a few of the other things, as it has to do with baby scrapbooking.
this is the first card that i made with their paper. the "little one" is fabric covered, and so is the red polka dot button. too cute!

JustRite Friday Challenge 32: Color

this was the color challenge this week over at the JustRite blog. i really like these colors together. they are giving away copics. i would love to win some, i still only have the one skin tone.
so this is my card, i used my nestabilites to cut it out, and i popped up the olive ring around the image, and let the main daisy image stay level with the card. i left the nestie on the ring when i used my dauber to sponge the olive ink, i like the bright white edges, it looks like there are extra layers there. and the designer paper is Mellow from Basic Grey.
the daisy is watercolored with my aqua pen and SU pumpkin pie and really rust inks to give a little depth.
then i used my glaze pen at the end for just a little shine.

i recently won some paper from the Moxie Fab blog and it was a terrific prize package, loads of goodies all from Little Yellow Bicycle. this is the paper, with some of the stickers. i used a dauber to sponge some ink on the edges to add a little depth.

Plain Ol' Toile?!

I was going to add something to the center, but it covered up this beautiful scene! So I ended up just making plain note cards. I matted it in a charcoal textured mat, and it adds some richness to the overall look.

Pink Zebra!

I just love the Fillable Frames from Papertrey!!! This one is #4, and I used raspberry fizz paper with a swatch of zebra print. I love the pink with the black/white! I even stamped the frame on the envelope! Now, I have to write small enough to get the whole address in it. ;)

Tree Tops Supplies Organizer Class

Here is the new class that I will be doing Sept 17, 2010 at Scrapbook Haven in Owensboro, KY. There will be 2 classes that day, 10:30 am & 6:00 pm. We will be using this brand new paper that Vickie has in, called A Walk in the Park by Echo Park Paper Co. This paper line is double sided. I love double sided paper, I usually just have to buy double, tho, to use both sides equally. ;)
The back side of the green polka dot is the tree tops side. I also used some mango paper to stamp on using the Curlz JustRite alpha set, and as a divider sheet. And there is also some BoBunny Back to Backs called Buttercup Dot(yellow polka dot).
You know, I love dewdrops!
And, in case you are giving this as a gift, we must have a gift card with it. I used Nestabilities with this one.
I love those trees so much, I just had to cut a few out for the back side. And the green strip on the back of the book, just finishes it out nicely.
I would love to see you in class! The phone # is on the side bar, so please reserve your spot before they are all gone. :)

Dave's Shirt Card & SSC 162

This is for Stamping 411's Saturday Sketch Challenge.
I recently bought a book on how to make stuffed animals for my cutest nephew Ian. Every pattern in the book uses old shirts or sweaters. So when Dave got a spot on his green polo shirt, I saved it to make something cute. Little did I know it would be used on a card, and not an animal first.
I also checked out a Threads magazine at our local library. It had instructions on how to make these wonderful leaves, of course, they folded the edges under, sewed them shut, turned them right side out and then hand stitched the pleats. I needed an easier way to simplify this for card making. So, I used my round nestabilities to cut these out, and just hand stitched the pleats. I prob need to get some kind of fray check for the edges, but I think it works for now.
I used SU certainly celery paper and PTI Take Three: Summer & Fillable Frames stamps. I am not sure what happened to the color in the last pic, I am sure it is the camera, and not the photographer. LOL
