Wednesday Wowzer, Hooray!

14 Nov
I made it, not even late!
I was inspired, today, since I saw an old friend, sort of, today, and I hope that I will see her again tomorrow to give this to her.
I manage a small gym in my very small town and I have not seen this one lady,that I adore, in awhile because **GASP** she has been going elsewhere for her workouts!  I know small town scandals, I could tell you a few! Any how, I saw her today but just missed her, so I’m hoping tomorrow I can catch her and give this to her.  She is the epitome of STYLE and this card is especially for her!
I have used the Love in an Instant – KOM May 2012 set for this card.
For the sentiment I have done one of my favorite things which is to just cut and piece phrases from ones I like to come up with a phrase that suites my needs.
I had the pewter charm that says
“be yourself”, which fit this card perfectly.
Here is one last look at my “couture” stylin’ card.
I hope you like it!
I’ll be back next Wednesday to WOW you again!

Wednesday Wowzer & Tribute

26 Sep
Today it’s all about Amy.
We here at I Heart {ippity} are not just team mates but buddies.
We have a forum where we chat and check in with each other, lift each other up when needed, etc.
Well I felt a need to dedicate today’s post to Amy.
Now that might sound silly, right?  I mean you could say, you guys just are on a team, you’ve never met!!
Well there you’d be wrong!!
Here we are
I got to meet Amy earlier this year!
I just felt like I lived closer to her, she’d be someone I’d hang out with all the time!  She is such a doll!
(Left is me, right is Amy)
Here is a cute thought I came across to go with this post.
What better kind of helmet, than a CROWN?
I vote AMY, QUEEN FOR A DAY!
I am using the {ippity} set called Dream a little Dream.
What do you think?  Perfect to cheer someone up?  Right?
Now I’ll have to figure how to whisk her off to this Spa in Tuscany and I will have truly made her Queen for the Day!
I hope you have enjoyed my little Amy tribute and Wednesday Wowzer!
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}, have a great day!
This is me today….

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??
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

New {ippity} sets make me HAPPY!!

19 Oct

Borrowing the word from Heather @ I Heart {ippity}, I have some new rub-bah to show you!!

For this card I have used the new set called Loads of Love.

My paper is the new line from Authentique Paper called GATHERING.

I am short on time and words today, so I will not bore you with the mundane details of how I created this card, but if you have any questions, all you have to do is ask!

You know where to find me…right?

I am so in love with {ippity} stamps and creating for I Heart {ippity} is never a chore…only a pleasure!

I feel the same way each time I pull out any of my Authentique Paper products!

I am a thankful person today!

Stop by I Heart {ippity} to see what the Design Team has come up with on this Wednesday Wowzer day.

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.

https://polkacabana.wordpress.com/2011/08/10/i-heart-ippity-keep-it-simple/

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Heart {ippity} Sweetest card EVER!!

17 Aug

Sometimes I go crazy putting everything I have into a project!

Today’s card is utilizing the {ippity} set called:

New Season, New Wonder

I adore this set.

This started in my head as a pretty simple card.

But then what sometimes happens is that these cards take on a life of their own.

 I get caught up in my supplies, not to mention the fabulous stamp set!

This has elements of about all my favorite things in the world!

Authentique Paper(blue), American Crafts Cardstock(white), Canvas Corp Paper(polka dot), Cherries, Beads and Chipboard!

I have to point out how thrilled I am with Authentique Paper‘s durability.

 By far it stands up the best to embossing and sanding compared to any other paper I have used!

 Bravo Authentique Paper!

Don’t you love that glass cherry in the center?  I have no idea where I got them!

I also love the color combo or blue and red together, so there is another favorite covered!

I would love for you to visit the I Heart {ippity} blog and see the other fabulous designer’s cards!

Have a great day and I hope you have enjoyed my post today!!
