What do creative minds do on rainy days??

20 Jan

As my title asks, what do creative minds do on rainy days?

Do we cook? NO!!

Do we clean house? NO!

Do we catch up on laundry?  HECK NO!

We …..  CREATE!

It is a rainy, I am so happy to say that, we need it so badly.

Today I am going to show you a card I have made for JW Illustrations.

JW stands for Jessica Weible, just so you know!

I am using her Valentine Car Stamp, that just so happens to be ON SALE right now!!!

Here is what I came up with.

I am so blessed to have so many different items to play around with.

What I mean is, this card is a compilation of many companies that I work with, love and happily endorse!

As already mentioned the adorable car is by JW Illustrations.  I love digital stamps because there is so much you can do with them.

You can use your favorite papers or stamps, the possibilities are endless.

As for the products I have used today here is a little list:

Stamp – Valentine Car Stamp – JW Illustrations

Paper – Authentique Papers – Freebird – Delight

Letter Stickers – Authentique Paper – Miracle Collection

Stamps – Unity – Authentique Paper – You + Me = Bliss

Embossing Powder – Wow Embossing Powder – BUBBLE GUM, WHIRLY POP & GUMMY BEAR GREEN

Rhinestuds – Rhinstone Hues – Etsy

What do you think?  Do you use Digital Stamps?  If so, what is your favorite thing to do with them?  I’d love to know!

Ok…I am done for today!  I might make another something for tomorrow…you never know!

Have a great day!

Cat Fancier, yep that’s me!

When you first take a look at this, it might seem like a strange title.
Let me explain.  I made this for a challenge that challenged us to use a title of a paper line and we had to use the paper line name as our TITLE.
This is for the Survivor Challenge going on at Tally Scrapper.com.
We are in week 2.  So much fun….
A couple of weeks ago, we rescued this kitty from a storm drain under the street about 2 hours from where we lived.
 I have fallen in love with her, and named her Luna, sadly, we can’t keep her.
Thanks to allergies the hubby has:(
What do you think of my fat black cat?  She is made entirely from Scalloped Circles and some smaller circle punches.
Another part of the challenge for this page was that I needed to use at least 3 colors from the paper line who’d title I am using.  Here is the palette I was working with.
The other dies I used on this layout were:

Thank you also Canvas Corp for the wonderful Red Jute, the perfect finishing touch for this page.

Printed Papers and Letters:

Authentique Paper

I hope you like what I have made today.

Thanks for stopping by.

What was I thinking?

23 Sep

I had some very important things to share and forgot to yesterday!!

Guess what?  I have WINNERS!!  WINNERS to announce!!

Well 1 winner..

Donna Woods…COME ON DOWN…(in my best Bob Barker voice)

Donna is the winner of my prize package for the Paper Issues Blog hop.

She has won a sampler pack(put together by me) of Authentique Paper.

Donna…believe it or NOT..I have your address….

PS..I will send you Pennies for the Ferry Man too!

Plus your special order card:)

Ok…also I need to give a HUGE thank you to CANVAS CORP.

I have been making some fun things with their products.

They have the most UNBELIEVABLE variety of things.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be posting things as I get them done!

Here is my first card I have made with their Black & Kraft Papers.

This card is yet another Shelf Card.

Do you remember my 1st one?

You can see it HERE.

When I first attempted this pattern, I was using a normal grade of card stock (not Canvas Corp).  I have to say, I had a terrible time assembling the 1st card, because of the lack of durability of the OTHER card stock I was using. Also the pattern was messed up.  I sent it over to my friend Christina of CG SAYS, and she tweeked it…but I will have to let her know what else needs to be fixed…we are ALMOST THERE with this pattern!

When making this card, I had no problem what so ever.

 I used Canvas Corp Black & Kraft Gourmet Sampler, Bon Appetit Reverse and Ribbon Stripe.  The Black & Craft paper is very sturdy and perfect to make 3-d types cards with.

I wanted to create a card that went along with the theme of the paper, so I embellished it with kitchen cut-outs.  The phrase says “We knead some mix thoroughly time soon.”

This is perfect for me to give to my hubby because with 7 kids, there is not much time for the 2 of us.

I have to tell you about the other items I used to make this too.

I think I would be lost without all my AUTHENTIQUE PAPER  PETITE TYPEs.

They are always the perfect finishing touch on so many of my creations.

All the paper cut outs come from the Cricut Cartridge called FROM MY KITCHEN, a fun, fun cartridge!

My finishing touch is the sticker of the babies in front.  Isn’t that the perfect touch.  I have a lot of these stickers by Jone Bergquist Hallmark.

I hoard them an only use them on the very special projects of mine, since I am pretty sure they are out of print.

Focusing back on CANVAS CORP, I have to say their papers, (I like to think) were designed with me in mind.

They have (HANDS DOWN) the best black and white polka dot paper in the WORLD…I will never regret saying that!

Here is an older card I made and can you believe how that polka dot paper just pops out at you and totally MAKES this card?

How do you like the cherry die cuts?

I picked up that die at a thrift store for $.25.  What a steal!

I will be back in the next couple of days with more things.  Be sure to stop by on Sunday August 25, 2011, for my tutorial with Authentique Paper.

My plan for that post is to leave you speechless…tell what you think after I post!

For now…have a great weekend!

Sweet Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs Vintage Touch

20 Sep
  This is somewhat of a combined post for me as I have made today’s project for both Sweet Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs.
I am helping a Cheery Lynn Designs DT member and we have traded days, just for this week.
Normally I make cards for Sweet Stamps, but today Sweet Stamps new theme starts and the theme is:
So, I made a Scrapbook page.
I have put so many fun things on this layout I do not know where to begin.
All my flowers are made with our new STACKER FLOWERS.
In addition to the Stacker Flowers, I have also used the following dies:
That Gorgeous floral swag is Sweet Stamp’s
By cutting of the oval outline, I was able to create these floral swags.
I also framed the first letter of my saying with the POSTAGE STAMP stamp.
Here is a side view to see all the dimension in our new Flower Stackers.
These flowers are just gorgeous and so easy to assemble.
Most of my paper supplies and embellishments are from my September Tally Scrapper’s Monthly Kit.
I am also entering this in the Tally Scrapper’s September Kit Challenge .  I have to use at least 75% of supplies for the page from my Tally Scrapper kit and my theme has to be VINTAGE.  So, how do you think I did?
The saying is from a song by a funny little group called Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes.
The line I used is “Home is wherever I’m with you.”
My hubby and I just had this picture takes at his 30th high school reunion last weekend.  It was the perfect picture for this layout that just dreamed up.
I could not have done this layout with out all my Alphas and Tiny Types from Authentique Paper.
I hope you have enjoyed my post today.  I had so much fun putting it all together.
I will be back next Friday with another fun project for Cheery Lynn Designs, so until then..bye for now.
This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
