Sweet Stamps goes Back to School

30 Aug

It is Tuesday which means….It is time to issue another Sweet  Stamps Challenge.

This week we are challenging you with a sketch.

Here it is.

On my card today I have used the very fun stamp called:

Umbrella 244.


You know I love to paper piece and today’ s card is proof.

I have used paper from the Authentique Paper line called Blissful.  You can see all the products for this line here.

For my apples, I just used a heart punch and cut the bottoms off to make them look like apples.

Well, what do you think?  I am rather excited how it turned out, sometimes sketches make me nervous, but not this time!

Now it is your turn!  Head on over to the Sweet Stamps blog and play along with us!

As always you will be playing to win a $20.00 Sweet Stamps.com Gift Certificate!

Have a great Tuesday!

I Heart {ippity} Fruity Fun!

24 Aug

I am so lucky to be on the I Heart {ippity} design team.  Making things for my Wednesday post is always a joy.

Today’s project I made to qualify for the Unity Opportunity Blog.

The challenge is to use banners and or flags.

I have always loved fruit stamps, so the New Season, New Wonder set is perfect for me.

Don’t you love that layered banner?  It is called the Pennant die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

My fruits are some old dies I had and of course that is some twine from The Twinery.

What do you think?  Do you like it as much as I do?

Ok, enough chit chat, I gotta get in the car and get my daughter back to school…college…faraway…different state….LONG RIDE!!

Think of me!  In the car, looking at miles and miles of desert!  UGH!!!

Until next week, have a Wonderful Wednesday

 

 

What happens when Authentique Paper and Tally Scrapper collide?

17 Aug

When Authentique Paper and Tally Scrapper collide, you get ME creating cards for a Tally Scrapper Challenge with all Authentique Paper, of course!

I had to post these pictures.

When I am making things, my kids are always right there by my side.

They have learned to ask if certain papers and supplies are for a “COMPANY” because if so, that means Do Not Touch!

I was busy making a set of 4 card for a Challenge on my favorite scrap place, Tally Scrapper.com

My little one saw me working with these tiny beads and said she wanted to do one. Normally I would tell her, “No, it’s a mommy job”, but for some reason today, I said, “Ok, you can try.”

I was floored that she was able to thread that tiny glass(seed) bead on the thread.

After, the first one, she just kept wanting to help.

I told her to “point” to the bead she just did, can you see it?  The card we working on is card #3 in this post today.

Card #1

I should tell you the challenge I made these for on Tally Scrapper can be found here: http://www.tallyscrapper.com/scrapbook_gallery_challenge.php?category_id=2&challenge_id=1235

 For this card I used my Authentique Paper – Glowing Hours stamp.

It was hard to get a good image of this since the chandelier is stamped on a shiny silver paper.

I dangled beads from it to accentuate the stamp.

I added spots of clear glass beads and the flower is made from a really old piano book I had a duplicate of.

 Card #2

I had done a blog post about this one already.

I was going to gather the paper.  I did the basting stitch and loved how it looked all 3D, so I did not squish it down to complete the gathered look.

 Here is a close up of the rippled ribbon paper.

 That cute butterfly is from {ippity} Stamp’s, Thankful for You.

Card #3

I added a lot of little extras to this one.

 Some exquisite fibers from my sweet mom’s things…

Some lace I gathered and sewed on the front, corrugated paper and finished off with a custom flower.

 Card #4

This card is just delightful to me.  Those are the glass beads my princess was helping me with.

 That gorgeous butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Design die called, Exotic Butterfly Medium #2. The silver in the back is cut from coordinating Cheery Lynn Designs Die called: Medium #1 Angel Wing.  This die cuts the perfect background layer for the Cheery Lynn Designs Exotic Butterflies.

 I added some extra dangling beads to make the card really stand out.

Don’t you think this is beautiful?

Let me know what you think of all today’s cards.

Here they all are together.

UNCOMMON is such a wonderfully fun line to work with.

There you have it…my pretties for today!

I hope you have enjoyed today’s post as much as I enjoyed making these cards to show you all!

Have a great Thursday…more fun stuff tomorrow with Cheery Lynn Designs and Cord’inations Paper!  YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
