I <3 Papertrey

February.5.2010

Have you been following along with the Papertrey Ink birthday celebrations?

They have been giving away some awesome prizes.

So generous!

For the contest today you had to make a card using the emboss resist technique.

This is the first time I’ve tried it.

I don’t think it turned out too bad.

I really wanted a blue ink that would cover the brown that I stamped the Distressed Music stamp (by Unity Stamp Co.) with.

I used a distress ink by Tim Holtz, but it didn’t cover it to my liking.

I didn’t have time to try something else, so that just has to do.

I actually started my sewing machine up tonight.

Kind of disappointed that you can hardly see it on the card.

I Love Earth Love

January.21.2010

I was talking to my crafty internet friend, Katy early today.

I gave her an assignment.  I told her she either had to make a baby card using her Basic Grey chipboard stickers or she could make a Valentine.

Haha.

I’m the boss.

She told me I had to make a birthday card and I had to use my Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper pack.  I wanted it soooo bad, then I got it for Christmas and hadn’t opened it before tonight.

When I was blog surfing today I saw a sketch challenge over on the Limelight blog.  They were also trying to get everyone to incorporate canvas into their projects.

So here’s what I made:

I cut that piece of Ranger sticky-back canvas out with my handy Cuttlebug and the Label 4 Nesties.  Then I inked it up with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink.

After that I stamped the border with a Waltzingmouse stamp using some new Papertrey Ink ink that I just got today.  I love it!  Then I stamped the flower image from Unity Stamp Co. with some brown Memento ink.  I colored the little leaves in with a Copic marker.  It bled a little bit, but you can’t really tell.

The sentiment is from Through the Trees by Papertrey Ink (I HAD to play with my new toys!)

As I did in the last card I shared, I put a sentiment inside this one too.  I stamped the Unity flower again and then added a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages by Papertrey Ink.

Just so you know, I love this card!  LOL  Aren’t the colors so calm and soothing?

Can it be true?

Did you think I fell off the face of the earth?  Quit making cards?  Just plain disappear?  Really?

Well no, I’m still here.

I blame it on a combination of the holidays and pure laziness for my lack of blog postings.

But I have 2 cards to share tonight.

Let me know what you think.

Just wanted to mention two stamp companies that I am totally loving at the moment:  Papertrey Ink and Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I have had this Sassafrass paper pad practically forever!  Special thanks to Katy for helping me think of a sentiment.

Where am I?

Little blog, I’ve been neglecting you.  Just so you know, I’ve been thinking of you.  Here’s a card:

Guess Whoo

Forgive me if I’m wrong, but I believe all the stamps used on this card are by Studio G.  You have to see the inside too!

Guess Whoo 2

 

 

Random thought for the day:  Nothing stinks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

I made this card several nights ago.

It struck me that something was wrong with it, but I didn’t know what.

Hmmm….

 

 

 

 

Silly Turkey

 

 

 

My turkey breast has nipples!

Oh my!

 

 

Wow, I was on a card making roll last night!  I made all these (+ one) before I went to choir practice.  Didn’t know I could make them that fast!  I was trying to get some use out of my American Crafts paper.  Which one do you like best?  I like the one with the cork letter stickers.Scalloped Blessings

Ho Ho Ho

Tis Christmas

 

The Lizzie Anne Designs sketch for this week (I think it is #102) is a tag.  I don’t do tags.  I don’t really have any use for a tag.  So I decided to turn the sketch into a card.  This is what I came up with:
