A couple of weeks ago I was asked if I could make a really FANCY card for an anniversary.

Hmmm, is that something I could do?  Well of course!

The “husband” said, she is from a tropical place, and loves flowers and get this…LADYBUGS!!

Oh, I can do ladybug cards alright and he said I could go HEAVY on the ladybugs, so I did!

This is a Tri-Fold card, this is the front.

This is opening up the front piece.

This is the inside of the card with his message..

This is the back of the card.

He wanted a large card.  So this ended up measuring 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.

What do you think.  When I delivered it, he was all smiles and gave me such a nice compliment. He said he could tell by looking at the card, I really enjoy what I do.

He is right, making things, especially for others, yep, that is where it’s at!

I hope you enjoyed this special card, it really was quite a masterpiece.

Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific week.

Back to School Time

3 Sep

I am not one of those parents who will lament that Summer is over.

Nope, I have been counting the days down till they go back.  (Sigh)

I have to be especially thankful for those Angels on earth, called teachers, who devote their days to teaching (my) kids.

Over on the Bloom Girl Design Team Blog is my Post today, celebrating Back to School, but also celebrating my thankfulness for their time.

Here is a peek, but you’ll have to visit the blog to see the whole thing.

Bloom Girl August Challenge

1 Aug

 

This is my first ever post for the Bloom Girl design team!!  Hooray!  I am so happy!

http://bloomgirlsdesignteam.blogspot.com/

We are going to have monthly challenges, and this is out very first one!  Below you can see the inspirational colors and palette for the challenge.  Go to the Bloom Girl Design Team Blog for the Challenge specifics.

I have told you in previous blog posts that I my 7 yo is currently battling Trichotillamania.  You can read about it here, Trich.org. It is my preferred go to for information on this disorder.

My little one REALLY, REALLY, wants to get her ears pierced, which  am totally fine with, her dad…well that is another story.  He has let her know as soon as she can get the little eyelashes growing back on her eyes, she can get her ears pierced.  She is TOTALLY on board with this.  So, what my project here today is a calendar to help her track her progress.  Every day we can still see evidence that they are sprouting, she gets a sticker.

I will probably reward her weekly, since she is young and waiting for her GRAND PRIZE(her pierced ears) will take a long time.

So, this is the 1st page for her calendar, and the words are perfect because we wants those eyelashes to “Bloom & grow”

 As for supplies I used…where do I start??

IMG_5998

 The, Bloom Girl, stamp I used is called GARDENIA.  The Bloom Girl Stamps are HUGE!!  Be sure to invest in getting a 6″x8″ Prima Stamp Block.

Watch this thing in action here!!

Here is what the calendar looks like opened up…

Other Bloom Girl Products I used are as follows, Clear Acrylic Stamp Two, Bloom Collection Brads, Tiny Alphabet Stickers, Optimist Paper 6×6 pad and Bloom Girl Chipboard Pieces.

This was a fun project to make..not  one I’d want anyone to have to make, but, you do what you have to do for the ones you love.

I hope you will join along in our challenge.  I know there are going to be some fabulous projects that we will see!

Make you week a great one and do something fabulous for someone you love!!

This has been me, Jeannie with The Polka Cabana for Jamie Dougherty‘s Bloom Collection.

Happy Birthday with RubberMoon Stamps…

28 Jul

 

 

Today my oldest son turns….23!!  I can’t believe it!  This birthday card is for him..because he loves elephants!! )

I am using this stamp, called eluvphant.

First I got all my stamp colors out.

IMG_5966

I stamped the elephant 2 times per color.

IMG_5967

I used an exacto knife to cut along the line for the ear, so I could make the ear more 3-d.

 

IMG_5970

As you can see, for each elephant, one got to keep the tail and heart, the other is minus the tail and heart, but has it’s ear 3-D’d. I hope that makes sense.

On the base elephant, I put some dimensional foam.

IMG_5971

The result is that you get a 3-D elephant that even stands on it’s own.

IMG_5974

Here are all the elephants ready to go.

IMG_5976

Next, to create the card base…I had the idea to make the white portion, mimic the sky by sewing random swirls on the paper.

IMG_5980

Instead of cutting all the threads, I gathered them all up and taped them on the backside of the paper.  By doing this the threads don’t loosen and become a nuisance.

IMG_5985

To space the elephants, I eyeball it, before attaching them all to the paper.

After attaching everything, I added a clear Happy Birthday Sticker, and here is the final product.
