Wednesday Wowzer

30 May
It has been a whirlwind of a week for me and things have calmed slightly enough for me to create for today’s post.
Today I am using one of my favorite {ippity} sets called:
I made this card to go along with the challenge over on the
I call this card a 4 square card.
By no means did I make the card up, but the directions I had from a well published book were so lousy,
I had yo recreate the card by sheer luck.
It gathers and closes and opens like a box lid.  Here is what it looks like on the inside opened up.
You can put what ever kind of sentiment or note you want to on the inside.
On the front you have 4 mini panels to decorate.
You can use it as a large panel or break it down into 4 small ones like I have.
What do you think?
Isn’t this a cute card and pattern?  And those flower stamps??  Get OUT!!  They are the best!!
Gotta love {ippity}!
I also want to point out the delectable goodies from these other companies I am using with this project.
All embossing powders are by Wow Embossing Powders.  Love the glitter ones especially!!
All paper is from Momenta. Kaleidascope
Square die and floral embossing plate by Cheery Lynn Designs.

Mary Engelbreit meets {ippity}, Polka style!!

9 May
For those of you who know my tastes and styles a little, it should come as no surprise how much I over the top, totally and forever LOVE MARY ENGELBREIT, right?
Well today I am using a card pattern I have from one of her books.
It is a tri-fold card.
Here is the front of the card.
I am using the set called Something Groovy.
One of my favorite things to do is to use my Mary Engelbreit calendars for my cards and things
I was not quite sure if I could find a picture that went along with this 70’s inspired Something Groovy stamp set…but I did! (I think the girl is PERFECT for this card!)
The center portion of the card is a pocket.
All my bright and fun paper is from
This is the saying that was on the calendar page I used, it goes perfect with the theme of the card.
Here is the card all laid open.
Here it is folded back up.
Standing up, so you can get an idea of how it is made.
This was such a fun project to make!
I hope you have enjoyed this card!

My project is up at MAY ARTS CHALLENGE!!

17 Apr

I am soooo excited!  I was chosen to participate in the current May Arts Challenge..

Here is the ribbon we had to work with.

We needed to use all the ribbon in the challenge…here is what I came up with.

I was given this display tree from my local pharmacy that did not need it anymore.

It was originally gold, red and white, but look what spray paint can do in a matter of seconds!

My idea is that this would be perfect for some sort of shower.  Bridal shower, baby shower?  The tine shopping bags could hold small trinkets to give away.

Or even if done all in white it could be like a money type tree at a wedding.

Don’t you love all that yummy ribbon?  AHHHH MAY ARTS, I LOVE YOU!!

I big I love you also goes out to MOMENTA PAPER, all the paper here is paper from their company.

Search the word KALEIDOSCOPE for some of my FAVORITE Momenta products!

 The papers I chose are a perfect match to this fun color palette that May Arts has for this challenge.

Head on over to May Arts and see what everyone else did!  You will get some fabulous ideas!  Leave a comment for a chance to win the prize which is 1 roll each of all these fabulous ribbons I have used!  Be sure and tell them The Polka Cabana sent you over!

2 for 1 card with Cheery Lynn Designs

13 Apr
Today I am sharing 2 cards I made, just for this post.
On one of the cards I have used a new stamp I just got from {ippity} stamps, so I decided to use a sketch on an {ippity} challenge blog.  Here is the sketch.

Here is my first card.
It is a pretty simple sketch.  Since I am using some very bright and colorful MOMENTA papers, I kept my embellishments to a minimum.
Let me know how you like my flower.  If I get enough responses..maybe I can do a tutorial on how I made it!  Leave a response in the comments if you’d like me to do a tutorial.
 Here is the card I made with my itty bitty Unity stamp set called Adventurous.
I used the same sketch.  The dies I used are as follows:
Here is a picture of them both together.
All my papers are from Momenta and all my embossing powders are by WOW EMBOSSING powders.
I am so thankful I have so many fun products to work with.  I hope you enjoyed how I combined different products today and that you also enjoyed the cards I have shared today.
Be sure to say YAY or NAY to the idea of a tutorial on the flower in my first card on this post.
Have you visited our new CHALLENGE blog yet?
Here is the web address:
Our current theme is THINK SPRING.
I think my cards were also inspired by the theme!
Thanks for stopping by today.

Gel A Tins Stamps – Elefuntastic Card

12 Apr
Hello everyone..
I am here with a cute card today.  I am using Mojo Monday’s Sketch #236
Here is the sketch.
I turned the sketch and used it like this:
I am using the set called:
Here is my version of the sketch from above.
It think this is such a sweet set. There are so many possibilities since there are so many stamps.
I took one of the largest elephants and embossed it with a glitter embossing powder.  It created a nice effect for the background.
I am using all MOMENTA paper products.
All of these wild prints are from a paper pack called:
I also used some ABC stickers from a Momenta 12 x 12 Super Paper Pad.  If you don’t have a phrase that matches your stamps, make one up!  That’s what I always do!
I hope you have enjoyed my sketch tweak today!  Do you use sketches?  I am new to using them but I am hooked!
What sketch sites you do like?
I would love to hear what you have to say.

Wedesday Wowzer with {ippity} and Momenta

11 Apr
Today I have teamed up with a ton of my paper products from MOMENTA and have made a very bright and cheery card for you.
Here is the sketch.
I turned it upside down, like this, for my card.
I am using the {ippity} set called, Flowers + Friends = Priceless.
My decorative papers are from a pad called Kaleidoscopic.
It was so fun to match the inks to the Kaleidoscopic colors scheme and the flowers from the {ippity} set matched the papers perfectly.
The colors are so bright and cheery, don’t you agree?
Here is one more look…
Have I told you lately that I love {ippity}?  So much so, I did try out for the Unity Design Team call…whether I am in the right league or not, I don’t know.
But for me, I have to really love something to try out for their team.
Unity Stamps are just so much fun to work with.
I will have some new sets to play with by next week, so come back and visit then

JW Illustrations + WOW Embossing + Momenta = Amazing!

12 Mar

I have a new card to share with you with and added technique.

I want to shoe you how I took a digital stamp and used multiple embossing powders to create a One of a Kind card.

I used the Digital Stamp from Jessica Weible Illustraions called HOT AIR BALLOON

What I did first was to print the image out multiple times and used an embossing pen to lay done the embossing ink and then embossed the Hot Air Balloon in the following colors.  I am using all WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS from the line called Candy Counter Collection.

After I embossed all the colors, I carefully cut each one out and pieced the Hot Air Balloon back together.

Because I am lucky enough to work with Momenta on their D-Lite team, I had some paper and products that matched my balloon perfectly.

The papers I used are from this 5 x 7 Cardstock Pad and stickers from their Kaleidoscope line.

Isn’t this just a bright and cherry card?

Multi layers and flowers with Cheery Lynn Designs

2 Mar
I was visiting blogs the other day for Cheery Lynn Designs, Lots of Layers, challenge entries and one lady’s blog post really stayed in my mind.  She was talking about Cheery Lynn Designs challenge and said, “I can do layers.”
I thought that was so cute, and she did do a fabulous job on her entry too.  I felt the same way about the challenge this week, “I can do layers, (too!!)”
I have used a lot of dies and I do have a lot of layers, so brace yourself! I am also using some really great papers from MOMENTA.
To start, I took the FRENCH LATTICE SMALL cut it out in a patterned red, backed it with ad nice textured white and mounted that on a kraft card front.  I added some machine stitching, because I think it adds a lot of flair to a card.
Next, I took the SWEDISH SPRING OVAL and cut it out in a patterned blue and layered that on top of the lattice. Both the red and blue papers are from the 5 x 7 Cardstock Pad.
The last time I used the FRENCH LATTICE SMALL die, I thought all those cut out squared would make a cute something, I just didn’t know what.  But today when making my card, I knew they would make perfect flowers and mini pinwheels.
You can see my finished card here.  The stems and grass are made from paper from the 5 x 7 Textured Cardstock Combo Pad.
 I also used the basket from BUNNY IN BASKET, CUTIES 4, MEDIUM ROSE, DARLING DAISIES, LACE CORNER DECO D and DOTTIES RIC-RAC to complete this card.  The ladybugs are also from Momenta and are called Lady Bugs Dimensional Sticker.
The fluffy yellow flowers are made out of piece of tissue paper my 7yo brought home from school for me.  I made the yellow flowers with the MEDIUM ROSE and layered them on one of the DECO CORNERS.  The stems are made from DOTTIES RIC-RAC.
The mini pinwheels and pinwheel flower are made from the leftover squares from the FRENCH LATTICE SMALL as I mentioned above.
Here is a close up of the fluffy roses.
 The flowers in the basket are a combination of the leftover LATTICE squares and the
DARLING DAISIES . Just by layering a lot of the squares and daisies, I was able to make these adorable flowers.
Here is one more look at my card that I am sure you will agree has LOTS OF LAYERS.
I hope you have enjoyed this fun card I have come up with.  Be sure to join in on our challenge, like I have mentioned, the theme is LOTS OF LAYERS.
You can find all the details here.
To view any of the Momenta products I have used, be sure to visit their site which you can find here.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great weekend!

New Dies From Cheery Lynn Designs **FAINT**

24 Feb
Today I am using the LACE OVAL REFLECTIONS die to make a unique banner.
To start out I cut a lot of ovals from the largest die in the LACE OVAL set.
I use the Sizzix Big Shot and I can still use the largest die, by folding my paper in half and cutting the shape.  I will have a fold line down the center, but for this project, that doesn’t matter.
Here you can my folded ovals, cut, still in half, and then I scored the ovals at 1/2″ increments.
Here are the same papers, opened up at their full size.
Can you believe how big those are and that I cut something that big from a Big Shot?
Once again, here the oval has just been cut, the paper in folded down the middle…
…voilà, here the same paper from above has been opened to it’s full size, it’s like magic!!
I am making 2 different shapes for my banner.  To make the flower shaped base, I need 3 of the largest ovals.
Here they are cut, and scored at 1/2″ increments.
Here the same ovals are, folded accordion style on the scored lines.
Fold the accordion folded ovals in half.
Hot glue the centers of each oval.
Then hot glue the 3 ovals together, they will look something like this.
Fan the outer edges open to meet each other on the other side and hot glue the remaining edges to form the flower shape.
The other banner shape I created is a butterfly shape.  For the butterfly you will need 2 ovals, folded, scored and glued in the same manner as the flower shapes.
Because we I only have 2 ovals, when I flair the ovals around to glue, the ovals create this butterfly shape instead of the flower shape.
To string all the shapes, I cut a paper towel tube up and glued them to the back of each shape.
After embellishing the fronts, I strung 2 layers of tulle through all the shapes to create the SPRING banner.
To embellish the fronts, I used the SWEDISH SPRING OVAL in the centers of each shape.
I had some large letters that I used to spell the word SPRING and then added lots of Cheery Lynn Designs flowers from The Floral Shop.
All the bright and Cheery paper is from Momenta.
Here you can see the letters more close up.
I just love all the colors and patterns!
Here is one last look!
I hope you have enjoyed this post today.
Hopefully you can see just how versatile the REFLECTIONS dies are.
You can just do anything with these dies, at least it seems like that to me!
Have you checked out or current challenge?
The theme is FRAME IT.

I Heart {ippity} Wednesday Wowzer

22 Feb
Hello??  Is there anyone out there?  I hope so, because…I stayed up late creating a mini masterpiece to show you all today.
I am using one of the new release stamps by {ippity} called:
Sucks to Get Old
I wanted to show you that these duos are so wonderful, and you don’t have to get hung up on the phrase that your image comes with.  #1, the phrase and image are 2 different stamps and #2, because they are 2 different stamps you can mix an match and the possibilities are endless.
For this project, I only used the Image, the lollipop.
I paper pieced it using my brand new, super dee duper, Momenta Cardstock Paper.
For the phrase, I used some letter stickers from my Momenta Super Paper Pad.
I took the time to make sure that the candy jar still looked cute even after the tag was removed.
Sometimes it’s the little touches that make a projects really stand out.
I also wanted to show you I fixed my annoying error from my project last week.
I put a lot of time and effort into this card and took the pictures and while editing the pictures it hit me that I should have made the card front so it opens while holding it as a rainbow shape.
So, I took it apart and fixed my error and I am so much happier with this card now.
I had a giveaway for this and my wonderful friend, Donna, is the lucky recipient of this colorful card.
This card was made with the stamp set called:
Friendship Rainbow
I hope you have liked my projects today!  Check out my blog post today…I am giving away the TAG from the Candy Jar project…so you know the drill:
