I am back…..Valentine inspiration

30 Jan
Hello Everyone!
It is me, Jeannie.  I am back today with a fun project I hope will get your attention!
I am using products from a fabulous kit from Clear Scraps February Kit club.
This little project I’ve made is a home decor piece.
I am using the itty bitty Unity set called You Make me Mushy.
This is done on a leftover 6 x 6 acrylic page I had from February’s kit.
I also used some Inktense pencils to shade the mushrooms.  I am hooked in those pencils after my first use,
Don’t you love how colorful and happy this looks?
A special thank you to Jamie for my mushroom embellishment on top.  I only use them on the most special of projects!
I hope you like this!  It’s good to be back making things!
I will be back next week with another WOWZER!  Until then!
Ta ta for now!

Wednesday Wowzer Time

25 Jan
Today I am sharing a card that our own {ippity} Heather has challenged us with.  You can find the challenge HERE.
Here is the sketch for the challenge.
Here is what I have created based on the sketch.
I have used 2 different sets on this card.  The sets are called,  Time for Friends and Your Friendship, My Cup of Tea.
I am also using my super yummy Embossing Powders from WOW Embossing Powders.
I loved the sketch.  I hope you like this card, I LOVE IT!  Polka Dots & Cherries, how can I go wrong with those, right?
Well that is it for me today!
ALSO….A BONUS CARD!!
This is using an itty, bitty, {ippity},(say that 3 times fast!!) called HAPPY.
You all know my love affair with Roy G. Biv and this phrase sang Roy G. Biv to me!
All those flowers are hand made by me using the fabulous die called Cuties 2. Th background flourish(my favorite) is called Fanciful Flourish. Both dies are by Cheery Lynn Designs.
This card I plan on entering into the NEW BEGINNINGS Challenge. You can read about that challenge here…wish me luck!!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
  See you next week!

Cheery Lynn Designs Tuesday

18 Jan

This is another installment of Valentines and Leaves.  I had shared with you that Cheery Lynn Designs just released their newest set of dies, DIMENSIONAL LEAVES in my Saturday post. 

I keep thinking of things to do with these leaves to use them beyond being LEAVES.  I think it is very important to use items to their full capacity.  Hopefully my cards today will show you some examples of what I mean. 

We will start with the Valentine’s card.  Who’d have thought to make a Valentine from leaves?…..umm…………..  ME!!

Here is a close up.  I used a metal Piercing plate to create texture on my papers.  In addition to creating texture, the Piercing plate created all these holes that allowed me do all the hand stitching on this card.  The holes made it easy to just feed the needle right where I wanted to.  No punctured fingers for me on this project since the holes make hand stitching so easy.

Next, I will show you how I used the leaves to create a background for this colorful RAINBOW card.

I created a lot of detail and dimension on this card with dies, paint, and paper layering.

Isn’t that little Philippe Pea from Veggie tales the cutest?

Well, head on over to Cheery Lynn Designs.  They have some fun contests going.  Chances to win free product from the Cheery Lynn Designs Store.  They are also showing some of their new releases as they gear up to go top CHA down in Los Angeles!

Mixing and matching all these dies is so much fun, you should really try it sometime!!

Products used on these cards: Jean Claude and Philippe Pea, Dimensional Small Leaves #1, Dimensional Large Leaves #2, Lady Bug Frame, Scalloped Rectangle, Scalloped Oval, Scalloped Square, Buttons1 and Optimistic 1/2″ Tall Upper/Lower Case.

 

Valentines for the St. Jude Children

16 Jan

 

I was invited to participate in a Valentine Card drive.  It is a special event, since the recipients of these cards are the children of the St. Jude Children’s hospital.  Some of us from TIFFANY DOODLES are joining Winter Wonderland for this drive. 

Those of us participating today are:

Tiffany – TIFFANY DOODLES

Karen – THE BALD DRAGONFLY

Me - THE POLKA CABANA

Kim – PAPERIE PETALS

Collette – HEAVENSENT FOR YOU

 

 Tiffany of Tiffany Doodles was kind enough to let us use some of her digi stamps for this card drive.

  To view all the guidelines for the card drive and to participate, head on over to WINTER WONDERLAND.  There is still time and I am sure that every card that St. Jude’s receives will be loved and appreciated.  This is just a quick post to show you some cards I came up with using Tiffany Doodles digi stamps.

This is made with the digi stamp called: CURLY TREE, and is actually not a Valentine digi, but I made it into one.

This one was made with the ELEPHANT  and Cupcake digis, also not Valentine digis, but you couldn’t tell, could you?

I know a lot of people out there are participating in the PAY IT FORWARD thing, this is a great way to pass on some kindness and PAY IT FORWARD to some little ones that could really use a little pick me up.  So if you have some spare time, go and make a couple of Valentines, following the guidelines of course and get them mailed off to Winter of WINTER WONDERLAND no later than January 31, 2011.  Allow time for them to get there, since she lives in Texas.  Once again here is the link to her blog to get all the information.

  WINTER WONDERLAND.
