Just A Couple "Plane" Cards.....

Hello everyone!  I am back today and actually have a couple of projects to share with you. I couldn't resist going a little "punny" as you know I LOVE to!!  I did not plan to use only planes today. I had everything cut, looked down and noticed I went plane crazy!!

My first card I used My Creative Time's "Thanks for The Lift" stamp set. I stamped the "love you" sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The background paper is Baja Breeze from Stampin' Up.  The white cardstock is Powdered Sugar from The Stamps of Life.  I used my Misti to make sure I got a beautiful stamped image.  The airplane was colored in with my Spectrum Noir Markers.  I used D3 for the plane and TB1 for the windows.  I didn't do any shading today, just kept it "plane" and simple, lol!  Sorry, couldn't resist!!  I did take my clear Spectrum Sparkle Pen to the windows on the plane.  I held back and stopped there!!

I used the Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies, also from My Creative Time.  In order to get more out of my dies, I simply inverted the cloud in the top. The great thing about clouds is there really is no form to them.  You can kind of tweak them how you need them.  The inside I will simply mat a piece of white cardstock to jot my note to my dad.  

The second card I made today was made from two sets by My Creative Time.  I used the "Fun Paper Airplane Die" and "Plane and Simple....."stamp set.  The image/sentiment were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  The "loop" was not long enough, so I masked off the image and stamped a few additional lines to cover my card.  I used my Misti to make sure I got the perfect placement.  

On the inside I used two of the sentiments.  Again, LOVE the Misti!!!  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Until next time, happy crafting :)

Thanks From The Bottom Of My Heart

Hello all!  As I mentioned previously, my fur-sister Lily just passed away.  My mom wanted cards to send to the veterinarian and to the crematorium.  They were amazingly supportive on an EXTREMELY difficult day.  

I used The Paper Studio Cardstock.  I took the large paw print from My Creative Time's Live Love Bark.  I randomly stamped them on the front panel and on the side of the envelope.  The envelope I wanted to make look like a dog had walked across it.  Each of the panels is 1/4" smaller starting with an A2 sized base.  The die cut bone came from the same set as the sentiment.  On the ones in the photo above I used Spectrum Sparkle Pens.  I did not end up using those, the glitter for once didn't look appropriate.  

On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Thanks A Bunch.  

The one on the left is the one we ended up using.  The one on the right was just layered on top without adhesive to show you both. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm hoping to have more creations coming sooner than later.  It's all dependent on my pain.  

Until next time, happy crafting :)

Mother's Day

Hello all!  It's been awhile, looks like about 2 months.  A lot has happened in the two months, mostly I've been in a lot of pain.  Last month, unfortunately, we had to put my fur-sister Lily to sleep.  She suffered from a horrific disease called Cushing's.  I'm heartbroken, but know it was what had to happen.  It really stinks to be an adult human sometimes.  

But amidst all this, my mother means the world to me and I wanted to make her a card.  So, I told the pain to be quiet (didn't work) and I got to work.  I went with a pretty simple card, but still took some time to get the creative process to kick in.  

I used Simple Stories DIY stack because my mom loves bright colors, especially pink!  I used my Stampin' Up heart punch on SU Melon Mambo cardstock.  I then attacked it with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle, who doesn't love glitter and shine?!?!  

The banner and sentiment are from My Creative Time.  I stamped the sentiment in My Pink Stamper Snowflake White Ink.  

On the inside I used My Favorite Things Gift Card Grooves Dies.  The sentiment comes from My Creative Time's Tweet Me Stamp Set, same as the sentiment on the front.  This was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I actually masked the stamp off as my son and I are giving one card.  As a side note, I love how the gift cards together say "Love Wendy's".   Cracks me up :)

Thank you so much for stopping by to see my creation.  I'm hoping to get back to creating soon, it all depends on treatment for my current predicament.  

To all you Mother's out there, Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!   

Until next time, happy crafting 😀

Coloring Bugaboo Stamps Theodore - Easter With Spectrum Noir Markers

Hey guys!!  Long time, no talk.  I can simply say that life has gotten in the way.  It has been a busy couple of weeks that I haven't been able to steal some time for me really.  So, I finally did!!  

Over on my YouTube channel I received a comment from one of my awesome viewers asking about my coloring videos.  Well, I have no coloring videos!!  I have never colored in a video for really many reasons.  The ultimate reason would be that it is really my downtime where I turn on tunes and go where the colors take me.  It's as close to a Zen zone as I will ever get!!  

I have done a few videos for you guys showing the coloring of some images.  Once the coloring video is published, I will next post a video doing a project with that image.  That way you literally have a start to finish with the image.  

I won't be doing a coloring video for every image I do, but will definitely make sure to start adding them to my video list.  

I apologize, in the video my camera slips down for a few minutes.  You can still mainly see what I am doing.  

The image I used it Theodore - Easter from Bugaboo Stamps and I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color him in.  One of the images is die cut with the Darice Rounded Rectangles dies and the other are my favorite The Stamps of Life Stitched Rectangle Dies.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Until next time, happy crafting :)

Valentine Series 2016 #7 - Cricut Teddy Bears

Hey guys!  Here is my last creations for my Valentine's Series.  

When I was working on my Frog Prince card I saw the bear with the heart and had to make a card with him.  I used Create A Critter 2 Bear (M#41D4D).  The bear and the card base were made from Recollections cardstock.  I used patterned paper from K&Co Ka-Zoo collection.  I was still on my "throwback" to how I used to make cards, so I just ran some ribbon as a border across the front of my card.  For my sentiments, I used My Creative Time's I Love You Beary Much Stamp Set.  I stamped the sentiments in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  To finish off the image, I added Crystal Effects to the heart and the bear's nose. 

Thanks for visiting!  Until next time, happy crafting :)  

Stella Says Sketch #403 - Happy Easter to Ewe

Hey guys!  With Valentine's Day over I decided to start working on some cards for Easter. Hopefully these cards will actually make it to their intended recipients :) 

For this adorable card I started with my image from Bugaboo Stamps, Happy Easter to Ewe.  I layered the image onto Blushing Bride cardstock from Stampin' Up, which is also what I used for the base of my card.  The patterned paper is from The Stamps of Life Blessings paper pad.  I also used The Stamps of Life Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut my image and layer from.  My sentiment comes from To My Best Peep Stamp Set from My Creative Time. I stamped it onto So Saffron Stampin' Up cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The image was colored using my Spectrum Noir Markers.  The ribbon is from Dollar Tree and the bling is from The Paper Studio. 

Thanks for stopping by!!  Until next time, happy crafting :)
