Woohoo happy birthday

Lately I seem to have an obsession with owl stamps - especially the one from Paper Smooches 'cubby chums' - It think because it is easy and fun to color :)

here is a close up ...
I made this card following the photo inspiration from Paper Smooches Sparks -

I think I was drawn to the pink and white chequered paper!  I used an owl as my image for both challenges at CRAFT and Cupcake Crafts and followed the sketch from The Pink Elephant.
materials - white cardstock, C'D sunrise orchid; Basic Grey 'sultry', Echo Park 'country drive', Cosmo Cricket 'mitten weather', Fancy Pants 'baby mine' papers; Paper Smooches 'chubby chums' and 'spring groves', AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' (happy birthday title), Unknown chequered background stamp; Versa Color black and orchid inks; MFT wavy banners; Crayola pencils; Liquid pearls white opal and ruby red.
Thanks for looking and enjoy the weekend.

Big birthday wishes

Sometimes when completing a card ... you look at the time that it takes you to make it and sometimes it is only 15 minutes and you begin to think ... no there has to be more to this card ... it is not good enough (even though you like the look of it!) You start to wonder how can you have satisfaction in a card when it only takes you 15 minutes?  Honestly this was one of those cards ... it just came together very easy ... in fact too easy for my liking that I did doubt that it was good enough! but in truth I actually like this card the elements came together nicely ... mind you the sketch from Card Positioning Systems and the theme from Top Tip Tuesdays - stars and stripes helped!

materials - AC blue jay cardstock, Bazzill pear cardstock, C'D brownie cardstock; Kaisercraft 'lone ranger' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'boys party'; Brilliance coffee bean, Versa Magic night sky ink; AnnaBelle cuts by design shapes 1 die; Spellbinders standard circle large nesties; glossy accents; white gel pen

Diaper card

Hi ya all, I didn't manage to post this yesterday evening (ran out of time!) so I will do it now.
One of my sisters is pregnant and is due soon, I have already made a card for her and the new baby and I wanted to make another baby card just for her other son Caleb ... my nephew who is 12.  I was chatting to another sister the other day who mentioned a conversation she had with Caleb and it goes something along the lines of Caleb saying that he is not getting up at 2am in the morning to change the babies 'pooey' diapers and that he can't do it as he has other important things going on like school, rugby league, kidsville etc ... so this just cracked me up and we all had a good chuckle at his expense (unbeknownst to him :)  What grabbed us all in this conversation was the fact that he used the word 'diapers' now here (down under and NZ) we call it a 'nappy' ... so obviously he watches too much 'the simpsons'!  But this conversation did inspire me to make a 'diaper' card especially for him ...

I tried to make it as 'teenage' as possible ... but the tabs open and inside is a tag and also the 2nd part that continues on from 'yo bro' ...
LOL and here is a young teenager saying "I don't do diapers" which is suppose to represent Caleb and then the little bee is ME saying "neither do I" and then I provided a list of names for him to call if he ever finds himself in a 'pooey diaper' scenario! ...
now the list is in order to ring and if the top one is not available he is to ring the next person on the list.  It is rather funny because before he rings me (I am in Australia while he is in NZ) he will have to deal with the nappy himself!
I enjoyed making this card because it is so specific to a person and I am sure, with his sense of humour, he will understand that it is meant to be funny ... it is hard to tell with teenagers :)
I am submitting this card for Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes and Crafty Creations - embellish it, use at least 3 embellishments ... even for a boy card I managed to embellish it with brads, flowers, rhinestones, ribbon and twine ... just in small amounts!!!
materials - Bazzill dark sky cardstock, light blue card; Jillibean Soup 'spotted owl soup' papers; Marianne design 'snoesjes boy with cat' stamp, Studo g 'bee' stamp, Paper Smooches 'alphadot' stamp, MFT 'mini banner day alphabet' stamps; Staz On jet black ink, Versa Color black ink, Brilliance rocket red ink; Crayola pencils; Bazzill brads; Carl scallop scissors; heart eyelet 3/16"; velcro; ribbon; flowers; Kaisercraft rhinestones; MFT chat bubbles.

happy birthday slider box

Hi All, I was browsing through the Splitcoast Stampers Newsletter (#317) and there was a tutorial on slider boxes and I thought how cool was that!  So reading through the instructions etc. I thought yup I can do that with a few modifications as it is all in inches and I am a "metric girl".  I have made slider cards before so it is along the same principle ... in the end it turned out quite good I thought and alot easier than what I had anticipated ... here is the view looking down on it ...

a view from the side ...
and here is the box opened - basically you pull open the box and a message tab shoots out from the opposite direction!
I have made this for this weeks challenge over at AnnaBelle Stamps blog - say it in "grey, blue & artichoke"
and I have followed the sketch over at The Sketchy Challenges blog

materials - AC blue jay and olive cardstock, black, grey and metallic white cardstock; AnnaBelle Stamps 'square posies' and 'background by design 2' stamps; Staz On jet black, Versa Color frost white, bamboo, Versa Magic night sky inks; Crayola pencils; MFT small rolled roses; Kaisercraft pearls; Spellbinders standard circles large nesties; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; black 3/16" flower eyelet, black satin trim.

Recycle your age

Hi ya all, a quick clean and simple card that I made this morning following the sketch from Retro Sketches, incorporating a here comes summer theme - cycling (mind you I cycle all year round here!) for Cute Card Thursdays and including some pink for CAS-ual Fridays.

The other day I found this cute Cheery Lynn Designs little pink bicycle die (it is 3" x 2" in size) in The Stamp Spot online store and I so loved it that I just knew it had to go in the shopping basket ... even Neil was excited about the die since we are both very keen cyclists (and collect everything and anything bicycle orientated!).  I loved making this card and said to Neil that he can give it to me on my next birthday :)
materials - C'D sunrise orchid cardstock, white, grey and black card; Jillibean Soup 'blossom soup' papers; Practicing Creativity Designs 'the whole cycle' stamps, MFT mini banner day alphabet stamps; Versa Color black ink; Cheery Lynn Designs little pink bicycle die, MFT wavy pennants, Spellbinders sprightly sprockets and standard circles large; paper flowers, Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Fiskars round the bend punch.

The Stamp Spot DT - smooches

Woohoo! it's the weekend and today is my turn to post at The Stamp Spot blog. 
I enjoy making little scenes with stamps and dies and using MFT woodgrain fence and flat bottom clouds I teamed it up with Paper Smooches 'chubby chums' and 'spring groves' (which can be purchased from The Stamp Spot) to make this cute little card ...

I loosely based this card on the sketch from Feeling Sketchy - unfortunately the cow wasn't quite big enough to represent the rectangle in the sketch! but you sort of get the idea of it!
It is a great sketch to use and is very versatile.  One thing that really inspired me about this sketch is the position of the 'sentiment' on the sketch - I created a little sign 'xoxox' in a frame and hung it on my fence!
materials - AC pacific cardstock, Kraft cardstock, white cardstock; Cosmo Cricket 'tea for 2' papers; Paper Smooches 'chubby chums', 'spring groves'; Staz On jet black ink; MFT flat bottom clouds and woodgrain fence dies; Quickutz polka dot embossing folder; charcoal twine; Kaiser ice blue bling; crystallina kindy glitz.

Woohoo! Paper Smooches Sparks challenge

Okay a quick Clean and Simple card this afternoon ... I was inspired by the 'cool shades' challenge over at Paper Smooches Sparks blog ... in fact I saw the colours chosen and then the fab DT cards and thought wow they really pulled of this odd colour combo ... so I thought I would challenge myself this afternoon using these colours ...

following this weeks sketch over at Card Positioning Systems I made this card ...

A little something just for you

It has been a few days since I have been in the craftroom and managed to get in here this morning!  I enjoyed making this floral card and drew inspiration from a few challenge sites - the floral theme comes from Quirky Crafts - handmade flowers and ribbon, what I did with the flowers comes from AnnaBelle Stamps - paper piecing, what I used came from Papertake Weekly Challenge - bingo and I used ribbon, diecut and button, I followed the sketch from Card Patterns #170 and included embossing for Crafty Catz.  Here is my card ...

for my handmade flower I stamped AnnaBelle Stamps 'daisy delights' on patterned papers (2 medium and 1 small), fussy cut all removing some petals from the 2nd medium and smallest flower, applied a broad tip embossing tool to the back of each flower so it curls and assembled togther with silicone sealant beneath the petals so that when the flower dries it still maintains its curvature even through the posting process! (using foam tape it tends to flatten out once it gets to its' final destination in the post) here is a close up ...
... an another showing the curvature - I even curved the 2 leaves and again used silicone sealant so that the curves in the leaves don't flatten out.
materials - wheat card, C'D dutchess cardstock; Cosmo Cricket 'tea for 2' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'daisy delights' and 'squared posies' (title); Staz On timber brown ink; MFT little open scalloped edge die; Quickutz polka dot embossing folder; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Shamrock buttons; AnnaBelle Stamps natural cord; Twill - natural; silicone sealant.

berry cherry christmas

This is the first of my christmas cards for this year!  I was out walking yesterday afternoon and I was mulling over in my head how I was going to tackle the sketch from Paper Smooches SPARKS designer drafts sketch this week ... so I am mulling it over and I had the idea that I wanted to use the Fruitastic stamp set (I don't own too many PS stamp sets!) and then all of a sudden it hit me why not make it into a Christmas card ... you would think that it is not exactly 'christmassy' but down here in the Southern hemisphere our Christmas is in summer and berries and cherries are in season and are a common occurrance on the christmas table (especially cherries you could say they are our christmas fruit) so this card is perfect for christmas :)

and no I haven't mispelt 'cheery' I deliberately wanted it as 'cherry' because of the cherries!
materials - black and white cardstock, Bazzill romance; Paper Smooches fruitastic and alphadot stamps, MFT christmas ornament stamp set; Staz On jet black ink; Crayola colouring pencils; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Carl scallop scissors; Creative Imaginations ribbon

(I also have my first christmas card of the year to post up after this one ... so how ahead do I wish to get? :)
I have used a Bugaboo digital stamp for this card (fish whisperer) ... I really enjoyed making this card and creating a 2nd title for it ... I know my father is going to love this image as he is a keen fisherman (mainly fishing from a kayak) and he is either not all that great at it ... or they get away ... because he always has to buy his fish in tins :)

I have followed the sketch from Sketch Saturdays, made it a fathers day card for Secret Crafter, a masculine card for The Pink Elephant and CRAFT and also 'one for the boys' for There's magic in the air with Cupcakes.  I would also like to submit it for the challenge over at Pixie Dust Studio - 3 plus patterned papers.

I was a little worried when I saw the first photos - I thought crikey I'm going to have to do a male card (which I find I have to be in the mood for making those!) and then I saw the colours squares and I love aqua green and yellow together and then that wonderful cake ... sighing!

juice 4 U

Thought I would take a break from cards and I made a little tag for the challenge over at Cupcake Crafts, tags are great to use up your paper scraps.  I also made it for the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge - patterned prints.  I have to admit I loved making this little tag using Paper Smooches 'fruitastic' stamps.  They are so versatile and also the 'alphadot' stamp set is great to create your own unique title ... hence 'juice 4 u' :)

You are berry sweet

here is the 2nd card from this afternoon - I have based it on the challenge over at Paper Smooches Sparks blog  - this week is trend watch ...

... I was drawn to the colours from the 2nd line - brown, fuschia pink and green - I was a bit off with the green I think! and the theme of my card is Letters for the CAS challenge this week at Split Coast Stampers. 

I have used old chipboard letters as my stencil for the word 'sweet' and traced around them on the edge of my card and cut them out leaving the top part of each letter attached to the card.  The 'you are berry' is Paper Smooches 'alphadot' stamps and the strawberries is from 'fruitastic' set.  I love the alphadot set as that gives me the freedom to create any title I like!

You're the Best

Hi all, bit a flat day when it came to cardmaking today - it was (and still is) a miserable day outside and the rain has now set in.  My first card of the day was an absolute flop and this is my second - which I have to say is not normally my style of using premade flowers (I tend to make my own!) but I got these Prima flowers in a prize pack and I thought I would try to use them ... now also in this prize pack I got some blue skeleton leaves ... do you remember those ... I haven't seen them in ages!  And it came to me the other day to use them and try to make a butterfly ... well here it is :)

these are 1" leaves and were a little bit so I trimmed and squeezed the ends to give the wings a little body to them ...
I was quite happy with the way the butterfly turned out  ... it just goes to show don't throw anything away ... ever ... because there comes a day when you will think of a use for them, as I know I threw some out years ago :)
So this card is made following the sketch from Card Positioning Systems.  The theme is from Hero Arts 'thinking of you', the butterfly is inspired by the challenge from Quirky Crafts 'up up & away' anything that is related to the sky (a butterfly flies!!!) and also for Party Time Tuesdays and Secret Crafter which both have anything goes this week.
materials - C'D blue moss card; Cosmo Cricket 'tea for 2' papers and s.e.i pear paper; Hero Arts 'sending smiles message' stamps; ColorBox chesnut roan chalk; Sen Plus blue 1" skeleton leaves; Kaisercraft chino pearls; Prima innoscence collection flowers; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Carl corner punch.
