Celebrate Summer Book Mark

I made this bookmark for Kona Kid Krafter's " Summer" Challenge 3.  Pink Cat Studio is our sponsor, they have some really cute stamps!  As a DT we get to pick what images we want to use for our projects.  I picked the cute Lady Bug Flower Tower.  I decided to make it into a bookmark, the image is just perfect for it.  My mother was here when I was making it.  She thought it was soo cute and hinted that she could really use a bookmark.  Yeah she took it home with her before the ink dried...LOL.  This little creation took less than 30 minutes to create.  That included using the cricut to cut out the tag!  It is pretty basic.  It was a lot of fun to make and turned out really cute.  I am posting both mine and Maddies before the challenge...I have no choice..I hate being rushed, I cut it a liitle close last time.  Better to be early than late..hehehe.  I entered this little quickie into the following challenges:


Here's what I used to create my little, oops my mother's little bookmark:
    • Ladybug Flower Tower Digi/Pink Cat Studio
    • Cricut, Gypsy, Bags Tags cart to cut out tag
    • Crop-a-dile and eyelet
    • Ribbon
    • White cardstock, DP scrap
    • Ink/sponge
    • Celebrate Summer Hero Art Stamp
    • Copic Markers, Sakura Gel Pens

Happy Day Flower Wall Hanging

I made this Happy Day Flower Wall hanging from a plaque I bought at an Estate Sale and revamping a card that I just started last week at our last crop.   Stacia showed us how to make all these different cool flowers and 4 different cards.  I decided to change the card into a wall hanging.  I kept all the details the same except for the card base.  Stacia was kind enough to supply all the materials too!   The only thing I used that was mine and part of my stash was my happy day stamp, funky scissors, eyelets, brads and the plaque I got at our coast weekend crop.  I really like the way it all turned out.  The flowers are better showcased on the wall hanging and can be enjoyed all the time.  I entered my creation into the following challenges:



Everthing except the plaque, happy day stamp, eyelets, and brads were provided by Stacia, so new supplies to me..Thanks Stacia.  Heres what was used to create this project:
  • Scallop punches to cut out flowers
  • Stamins, toothpics
  • DP & Cardstock
  • Nestabilities
  • Funky scissors

Everything came from my stash except the Digi's, they are slightly newer.  Here's what I used to create my card:

For the Bride and Groom/Happy Wedding Day Card

It amazes me how a color I normally do not like can look so good on a completed card!  Blue is not one of my fav's.  I made this card for a good friend who is getting married next week.  Her new hubby to be doesn't seem the type to like a girly girl card so  that's why I used  the color blue as the main color.  I know, I just couldn't help blinging it up just a bit...lol  The matching envelope  may not be to his taste but the card should pass.  I am hoping they will both like it.  My DH still say's I can't ask for it back if they don't...ROFL  The cuter my cards turn out the harder it is to actually give them away...and OMGosh I gotta let them go...  Who would have thought that I would come to appreciate the color blue.  Anyway's I entered this card into the following challenges:

 

 
 
 
 
Everything I used I had in my stash.  It think my DP stash is going to last forever!  I may  have to start decorating all my envelopes just to use it up faster...then I can buy lot's of new stuff..yeah!  Here's what I used to create my card:
  • Cuttlebug and  Valentine embossing  folder
  • Greeting Farm Digi Stamps ( Aren't they soo cute!)
  • SU Happy Wedding Day stamp

Make a Wish TeePee Card

The inspiration for my card are these new Magnolia Stamp's...aren't they just the cutest!  Just got them and had to create something right away.  I guess you can tell that Tilda's are my fav, fav, favorite stamp.  Actually I love all things Magnolia..LOL  To be honest I love all things stamping, Magnolia just a little more. I think my soon to be Married friends will love it..I know she will.  It's strange how my favorite color pink goes so well with my least favorite color BLUE.    Blue may have just moved up a notch.  Edwin doesn't look bad in shades of blue.  This little jem has something old, (Cuttlebug embossing) something new, (new stamps)something borrowed, (the ink from Maddie) and something blue (paper and color, not so hated anymore).  I jazzed up and altered the bling flowers  by adding the tiny silk flowers to the centers.  I entered this into the following challenges:




Here's what I used to create this card:
  • Magnolia Tilda & Edwin Stamps
  • Sassy Studios Digi Sentiments
  • Cuttlebug,  Swiss Dots Embossing folder, Spellbinder's Nestablities
  • Copic Marker's
  • Bling flowers and Butterfly
  • Tiny Blue & Pink Silk Flowers inserted into Bling flowers
  • Sakura Gel Pens
  • Funky Scissors
  • Maddies Ink
  • Velcro
  • Pink, Red and Diamond Stickles
  • Pink, Purple & Blue Polka Dotted Pattern Paper
  • Pink, Purple, Blue & White cardstock

Father's Day Card for Billy

I made this Father's Day Card to give to my son-in-law Billy.  My little grandaughter Gracie loves to go fishing with her Dad.  What can be more fun than fishing with your Dad on a hot summer day!  I fell in love with the Tiny Tiddler SugarNellie stamp so of course I had to buy her.  She is such a little cutie, and so is Gracie.  I think he will love it.  It is not your typical Father's Day card, but I think it is perfect.  It may have a little girl on it but it is not a girly card.  I entered this little fishin' darling into the following challenges:


Everything except the Sugar Nellie stamp came from my stash.  Here's what I used to create my card:
  • Tiny Tiddler Sugar Nellie Stamp (new, she's so cute!)
  • Cuttlebug, embossing folders and Spellbinder's Nestabilities
  • SU Happy Father's Day stamp
  • Copic, SU markers, SU Ink Pad
  • Brads, butterfly,buttons
