challenge 5. for this challenge we had to use a solid image to make a faux border. I used a star to make the border. I thought it looked like a banner so I grabbed a cupcake stamp and birthday wishes stamp. This was a very fun challenge and I can’t wait to find more solid images to see what other borders can be created. Images are Studio G, star is inkadinkado, inks are colorbox chalk.

challenge 2. we had to use hot pink and charcoal…which was a little out of my element as I don’t do a lot of pink. The card looks better in person…lighting was difficult to get a good picture. I didn’t have any charcoal grey paper so I cut down white cs and stamped it with my charcoal colorbox chalk ink pad. The inside is stamped with “you brighten my day”.
Here is the card I did for Make it Monday over on Nichole’s blog for PTI. I had lots of fun with this technique and will definitely be using ot more often. I used On My Couch and On My Couch Additions from PTI. The designs on the chairs were done with images from BoBunny Jazmyne that I picked up at the local scrapbook store. I used the following Colorbox Chalk cat’s eyes inks: mint, celadon,apple green, fresh green, moss green, and olive along with Stazon Jet black. The inside as a white layer with an image stamped on it as well as the envie. You can see another card I made using the chair from On My Couch and the same technique here. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday. This isn’t the best picture either. It’s a 3×6 card. I got the idea for the card size from card a la carte. It’s a very fun size to play with, give it a try!
Hello all! Today I sat down and created this card for the PTI inspiration blog hop. I just love this photo. I decided to go with the On My Couch set. I have been using Erin Lincoln’s reverse masking technique that was shared for this weeks Make It Monday #20. I have been having so much fun with it! If you have not played around with this technique, you have to give it a try! I have do reverse masking in the past but have never added another image to an image in this way before. So quick and fun! I did each chair on the card using this technique. The bottom chair is cut out and adhered to the top of one that was stamped under it (I messed up that chair and didn’t want to scrap the whole card since that was the last chair to be done so I decided to “hide” the mistake instead The sentiment is from On My Couch Additions. This is one of the first sets I got from PTI and I just love it. The thread is DMC 327. I used black csw for the base with the white layer on the outside and inside of the card. On the inside I stamped the image that’s on the bottom chair in that same color. I did the same on the envelope. I like to stamp a little something on the inside of my cards as well as the envelopes. I think it gives them a little ‘sneak peak’ when done on the envie The masking was done with images from the BoBunny Jazmyne set. I used the following inks from Colorbox Chalk Eyes: ice blue, french blue, ice jade, aquamarine, wisteria and warm violet and stazon jet black. Make sure you stop by Nichole’s blog to check out the blog hop if you haven’t already.
Sorry the picture is a bit dark. It’s been cloudy here and this was the best one I took.
Yesterday my baby sister had her first child. Her and her husband were blessed with a beautiful, healthy baby boy. We drove up to see them yesterday and here are a few of the many pictures I snapped of him. Look at all that hair!

Two teachers at my school had babies and there was a combined shower for them. They both had girls so I decided to make the same gift for both of them. Here is a picture of the whole package…sorry the photos are dark again. We had several weeks of cloudy skies and rain. I stamped the bunny image onto a onesie with ColorBox chalk rouge ink and then heat seat it. I just love this image. The set has other cute images too. It’s a shame I had to get it in Omaha because out Michaels does not have a very big collection of stamps. They are just started to re do it and it’s about time! The first time I saw this set was when we were at the Sioux City, Iowa Michaels….which has a huge collection of stamps. I bought the boy set because it’s mostly boys in our families. But then I continued to think about this girl set and really wanted it. We took the boys to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo for Gaven’s birthday and I was able to swing in to one of the Michaels and pick this set up! I am so happy I did…isn’t it just the cutest image Then I stamped some labels and wrapped them around the nuggets. I stamped the pink image several times on white cs, punched it out and then stamped congratulations on it.
Here is a close up of the onesie and chocolates.
Here is a close up of the tag I stamped.
Supplies: twine- PTI, Colorbox chalk rouge ink and StazOn jet black ink, EK punch, clear bag, ribbon was in my stash, onesie, image and sentiment on tag-studio g, bunny image-Sandylion girl clear stamp set
For Teacher appreciation at our school we don’t do teacher appreciation but rather staff appreciation because it takes everyone to make our school a school family like it is. So I whipped up these little baskets of goodies for the educati0n assistants in my room. It’s a little ceramic dish with lotion and hand sanitizer from Bath & Body, Hershey’s nuggets with labels on them that are the same as the tag. Sorry, the photo is a bit dark

I wanted to say thank to the custodians who take care of my classroom and students. I wanted something simple and masculine, yet springy. I decided to make this card for each of them. I stamped the screwdriver image first and then came back and stamped the lines. Then I added the sentiment from PTI’s fillable frames set #1.
Supplies: PTI fillable frames #1, Close to my Heart Tool Time, Colorbox Chalk Ocean Breeze Paint Box, white cs
My little sister is having her first child in a few months and wanted to decorate some onsies for Baby D (they don’t know what they are having). We spent this Saturday stamping on 10 onsies (which was wonderful because she lives 2 hours away so we don’t see each other as often as I’d like to). It was a lot of fun and they turned out great!
Supplies: Great Impressions- D341 (monkey), E352 (mouse on tube), imaginisce snag’ems- giraffe, frog, panda, bird, hippo, Craft smart- bunny, Stamp Craft- teddy bear, We R Memory Keepers- hippity hoppity- buzzz. Other: onsies, iron, freezer paper, ColorBox Chalks ink pads.
Ok, so I have seen Dawn McVey build these flowers from paper punches and have been wanting to try them for months. I finally tried it out and I had so much fun making the yellow one that I decided to make 5 more in different colors. I am always in need of birthday cards and thought it would be nice to have some on hand when I don’t have time to make them. I think I might make up a bunch of the flowers to have on hand to make card making go a bit faster too. These would be perfect to make while watching Greys Anatomy
This is the first one I made. I used my EK success punches 1 3/4, 1 1/2, 1 1/4 and 1″ circle punches. I inked the edges in a darker shade of yellow and then crumpled them up and unfolded them. I glued the circles together and added a button with PTI twine for the center. The border punch is Martha Stewart and the leaves are Stampendous - Sunny Flowers that I stamped and cut out. Sentiment is TCP Studio-Greetings.
Here’s a close up of the flower. Makes me think of spring!
Here’s another set of cards I made to have on hand. I needed three and didn’t have much time so I made about 10 of these since they were quick and I really liked how they turned out. I used box of dots by Hero Arts and the sentiment is the same as above.
Here’s some masculine birthday cards I made to keep on hand. I gave one to my 15 year old cousin and one to a co-worker. Again clean and simple and very happy with the look. I used Hero arts- snippets and the sentiment is also Hero arts- for him.
Here’s a card I made for my cousin’s daughter. The sketch was from the pink elephant challenge from last week. Image is imaginisce and paper was in my stash. Rhinestone from Queen and company.
Well that’s all for now. What did you think? I’d love to read your comments. Thanks for looking and enjoy your Saturday!
