Wowed by WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS

11 Jan
Hello blogging world, today I am sharing my first project here for the fantastically yummy embossing powders by WOW.
I created a fairly simple layout so that the colors of the powders would really stand out.
I started with a picture that I manipulated in PSE.  I wanted the picture and my title to be the background paper.  Here is what I started with.
Yep, that’s me..goofy I know but it is what I wanted!!
I had the image of what I wanted to do in my head, and here is what I dreamed up!
When I look at this layout, I am just giddy.
I used the Wow Beautiful Clear Stamp set called GRATITUDE.
All the embossing powders I used are from the CANDY COUNTER COLLECTION–Berrylicious, Whirly Pop, Sour Lemon, Gummy Bear Green, Bubble Gum & Cotton Candy.

This is for a book I have decided to do about me.
We all have things that are unique, things that make us who we are.
I am a Sunday School teacher for teenagers and this past Sunday I was talking about the importance of journaling.  I had this MOMENT while planning my lesson that I wanted to do a book about the nuances that make me who I am.  I told my class about this and told them that journaling can be really fun.
I told them it was my promise I would start myself and that I would create something and bring it to church the following Sunday.
Now that I have my first page I can’t wait to do others.
The WOW embossing powders will come in very handy during this process!
Sorry, for my ramble…I just thought I’d let you know what my page was all about!
Thanks for the visit and I hope you get a chance to play around with these fun powders!

Trio of Cards with Cheery Lynn Designs

8 Jul
Every once in awhile I do my projects for a blog post and I want to explode with excitement because I am so happy with how my things turned out!
This is one of those times.
I was challenged to use dies I have not used in awhile..well I decided to use a die I have never used before! The die is called: FISH.
Here is phase 1 of my card: I could have stopped here, what do you think?

Initially I was going to have fish strung across the front, but it covered up the beautiful abstract background I had just made.

So I settled for enhancing and complimenting the background instead.

Using wire and glass beads, I kept with the ROYGBIV color scheme and created this mini masterpiece.

I just love how this turned out!

I had all these ideas for this simple die, so I kept going.

I have a blast looking up different quotes for cards I have in mind.

This one I came upon quite by accident. I was having my 16yo help look up fish quotes and I did not like any he was finding, so I told him never mind and let him know he was “Off the hook,” and well I laughed out loud, because I thought hey..I can make a card with that!

Remember on my 1st card I said I had the idea to string the fish along the front?

Well, this is what I meant. See how they would have covered the whole background of the 1st card?

This would be a fun card to make for a friend having a bad day.

Nice bright colors to cheer someone up and this is what the inside says:

Amazingly, I only used a couple of dies with these cards. The FISH die is a fun die as it has that outline that can stand alone. There are many other dies like this. To see them all, here is the link, they are called LAYERING CHARMS:
I hope I was able to show you how fun this simple die can be, go and check out the other shapes in this family of dies.
This has been Jeannie with THE POLKA CABANA with today’s cards.

It is me, on a Tuesday sharing a new card I have made with Sweet Stamps.

If you are here for the PAPER ISSUES BLOG HOP, Click HERE.

This card is called a CENTER STEP card.

If you like it and would like to try it, I will include the pattern at the end of this post, courtesy of Sandy Hulsart.

I really enjoyed making this card.  The pattern is very easy and after making one, I am sure I will use this pattern again.

Here is a side view so you can see how the center portion of the card POP up.

The card has many surfaces to embellish, which was really a ton of fun.

The Sweet Stamps products I have used are:

Oval Lace Frame Small

Butterfly Kisses

Cheery Lynn Designs – Butterfly Bundle

I love the color scheme for this card.

I have used 4 lines of paper on this card.

The Blue patterned background is from the DEAR LIZZY ENCAHNTED line, the base is from STAMPIN’ UP!

The Yellow is from THE PAPER CO.

Lastly, all that GORGEOUS fun paper yum in from Crate Paper, EMMA’S SHOPPE.

Lots of stuff on such a small card:)

I hope you have enjoyed my version.

Head on over to Sweet Stamps Blog, to see the other Design Team’s cards.

I have had a peek and you won’t be sorry!

Come visit me on Friday…I will be showing off some new Cheery Lynn projects!

Here is the pattern!  Have fun!

 

What does AMAZING mean to you?

19 Nov

a·maz·ing

[uh-mey-zing] –adjective

causing great surprise or sudden wonder.

As most of you know…I am a mom to many kids.  Each one of my kids has their own, outward talents.  I have one who, if asked, would say, she has no talent.

This 2nd oldest child of mine, has at times felt overshadowed by her older sibling, for his accomplishments in the creative sense.

My oldest daughter, who had been home schooled for quite a few years, is back in public school as a SENIOR!!

Whenever she has an assignment, in a class she really likes..she has always gone, WAY BEYOND what one expect.

She had a project for one of her classes, I think she needed to do a drawing of a conflict or scene in the book.

She could have done..just a simple drawing and handed it in..but no!  She did her project a’ la SOFIA.

She fretted so much about this and I am sure that she was very uncomfortable with the way her FINAL project turned out.  She is not one to bring attention to herself, but when she puts her heart into something..

**”The whole world stops and stares for a while”

This post is to pay tribute to her,  because…

**”When I compliment her
She wont believe me
And its so, its so
Sad to think she don’t see what I see”

** ~ from  Just The Way You Are Lyrics by Bruno Mars~

I created this page for this weeks challenge on The Lollipop Spot.  The challenge this week = YELLOW.

You can’t really see the detail of her picture, so here are some larger images.

LOWER

One more time, the whole Image..

 

Sadly,  here teacher wants to keep it(sad for mom)..she also did this on poster board..so I am a little worried how it will age(weird mom!)

What do you think??  Well, that is my definition of AMAZING!!

For some unrelated news…here is a card I did as part of a Design Team Submission I did for the company IMAGINISCE.  I am hoping they will view my whole portfolio on the blog, but they asked for us to create a project using at least 75% of their stuff.  So here is what I came up with.

Side View

Parting view…

Talk about competition….wish me luck.  This would be like a DREAM TEAM…but competition is steep and numerous.  I am sure.

That is it for today…I have some fun ideas for tomorrow and next week!

Just Lollipopping along!

6 Aug

I have to tell you, seeing the colors of the rainbow all lined up, makes me giddy.  I mean I feel a surge of happiness just looking at something based on the simple colors of a rainbow.  I entered a swap for some ATC cards.  I needed to create the cards based something that is ME!  I have NEVER done these before..so I just made mine like a mini card.  I found a wonderful phrase to go with my design and of course, I added some POLKA DOTS and voilà, here is my finished project!

I found this wonderful product on ETSY.  I think the commercial name for them is DEW DROPS.  They make any project sparkle and add a little pizzaz.  I have tried to take a close up so you can see them.

You can really see the 3D effect on this one.  Such a happy project!

Can you believe I made 20 of those?  They were A LOT of work.  All the scraps are sewn first, then I sewed all the flower/button accessories, added sparkle, dew drops and polka dots!!  Lots of love in these.  I really enjoyed making them!

In the next few days I can reveal my PK GLITZ design team projects, I have to wait for them to post them, then I can show you!!  I also have to show you another finished project, the one I was calling the “MANTEL PROJECT”  It is done..pictures soon!!  Let me know how you like the ATC’s!!!!

My very first Design Team Challenge

18 Jun

One of my new best friends makes the most adorable SVG files and has a store on ETSY called Paper Faces Designs.  You can find her blog at http://theresetravis.net/ I have been honored to be part of her all brand new start-up DESIGN TEAM and I am GIDDY.  This is my project using one of her designs.  The file is called “CHLOE” in her ETSY shop.  If you have a CRICUT and a little girl, you have to visit her blog and  ETSY store.

My project will be one of a total of 7 you will see over time.  I want to keep this short so I will not explain what my project will all entail, but my project I am posting here is Phase 1 of 7 phases (think kids).  I hope you enjoy.  Please leave me some feedback and critique the project, ok?
