Happy Birthday RubberMoon Arts Style

16 Jun

 

It’s birthday time of year and I thought I’d combine this post with a little gift I made for a certain birthday boy who celebrates a birthday this week!

 This is to match something that he wants for his room, so although he has seen THIS project, he hasn’t seen what it matches.

I used my Deena Ziegler Sizzix Banner Die, which I totally LOVE by the way!!

Here are my papers all cut and ready to go.

I used the Mixed Media Splatter stamp on all the papers to start.

For one of the banner pieces I used this LOVE stamp.

On another piece I used the NEW MOON stamp.

On the NEW MOON banner, I used this phrase.

Here is how I cut out the phrase and moon to make them stand out.

For another banner piece I used this Denise stamp.

What do you think?  This was a ton of fun to make!  I love making banners and using stamps on them is such a great way to personalize them and make them more unique!

I hope you have enjoyed my post today.  This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana today’s RubberMoon Arts post!

Have a great week!

Wednesday Wowzer Banner

16 May
Today I am using the {ippity} set called New Season, New Wonder.
I am using these mini gift card sized bags from CANVAS CORP as my base.
I thought this would be so cute using nice bright summer colors.
Using powders from WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS was the perfect touch since I had some vibrant colored powders to choose from.
I embellished a little with some puffy stickers I had from MOMENTA.
The puffy fruit stickers were the perfect finishing touch.
These bags are the perfect size to create a banner that is not overwhelming in size.
I hope you have enjoyed this idea of mine!
Do you love banners like I do?
Now…where should I hang this?? hmmm??

Bunnies and Blossoms Banner Hop for Special Needs Children

23 Mar

Welcome to the Bunnies and Blossoms Banner Hop for Special Needs Children.

Today and tomorrow (March 24-25), 30+fantastic papercrafters have come together to create Spring-themed banners.

They will then donate these banners to Ellen (CardMonkey), who works asAdmissions Coordinator at Pediatric Specialty Care (PSC), www.pediatricspecialty.com.

PSC is a long-term care facility for specialneeds children who are medically-fragile and/or technologically-dependent.

 The babies, children and youths at PSC range in age from birth to 21, and areadmitted from all over the country.

Some are infants, born prematurely and before their lungs have had a chance to mature.

Others have serious birth defects, illnesses or injuries from accidents that cause them to need tender loving carein a home-like environment — many for their lifetimes.

Having had 2 preemies myself, this is kind of scenario is close to my heart.

This is my 7th child and she and my 6th child were both preemies born 3 months early.

I am well aware of the thankfulness parents have for the special things that are done for these babies and children during their long hospital stays.

I hope that all our banners ease the stress and bring a smile to the families we are donating these banners to.

Our banners are meant to cheer the young patients, their families, and the staff at PSC.

Here is the banner that I made and will be sending to Ellen to decorate a child’s room:

I do have some blog candy to give away along with the BIG PRIZE you can see on our HOP HOSTESSES BLOG:

Here is my prize a bright and colorful embellishment kit.  I will pick a random winner from Random.Org.

As for the BIG PRIZE for visiting us today, how about a beautiful handmade (courtesy of our Blog Hop Hostess, CardMonkey!) Cricut Cozy Covers?!

Each one is individually styled in your pick of colors and embroidered words!

These are RARE because CardMonkey does not make them for sale and she usually sticks to paper, not sewing!!

To qualify, there are two steps: 1. Comment on as many Bunny & Blossoms Blog Hop blogs as you wish — the more blogs on which you comment, the more chances you have to win. There will only be one winner, picked at random by Random.Org.

2. Follow and comment on the CardMonkey blog … Leave a comment on our Hop Hostess’s site (http://cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com) and let her know if your name is picked, what 2 accent colors you’d like on your Cricut Cozy Cover, andw hat text you’d like embroidered (up to 3 lines). You MUST be a follower of the CardMonkey blog to win and you MUST leave a way for her to contact you if your name is picked.

So now …. onto your next stop on the Bunnies and Blossoms Banner Hop:

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.
