Cute Card Tuesday Challenge 35 - Cheers

Here is my "drink"card!
I am making a card with the new (to me) paper. This paper is part of the Amberley Grace collection by the Angel Company (TAC). I used two different patterns and a tag from the paper pack - the stamps are from Oriental Trading winter collection, colored in with Koh-i-nor Pencils, I added some fiber, staples and hand doodling.

KWerner #28

Love the bag and the colors were fun to play with --- this is the simplest card I have made in ..... lets just say a long time. I always seem to have so much trouble with negative space but here I went for it and embraced it!
The paper is Bazzill, the rub on is American Crafts, the orange flower is Prima and the rest is from my stash. (Sorry the last pic is washed out)

So what do you think of my "negative space"?

Saturday Cinema Challenge

I am just LOVING these challenges. This week is Nightmare Before Christmas what a fun movie for a challenge. I went for a 5x7 card for this one so I would have lots of room to play. I used Bazzill paper, Tim Holtz stamps (swirls and lines on the tree) Clear embossing powder (it has a little black in it too that makes it silvery) I used my new dimensional pearls on the tree and Tim Holtz ink for some shading. Also misc. brads etc for the tree. The inside of the tree is 4 layers of UTEE with the swirl stamp pressed in it. Well here is the card:

4 Cards - and a crop report

I went to a CKC crop --- I am used to either cropping at home or doing all day, weekend or week long crops. I went to one that was like 3-1/2 hours long. Talk about frustrating. I actually did get one two page layout mostly done but with all the contests and drawings and so on I REALLY had trouble concentrating --- (I did win a paper pack WOOHOO!!! -- I usually never win anything!) So I gave up on layouts and made cards --- since I had so little space (ACK - I need to spread out!) I just used what was in easy reach. And here is what I created.

This one has Bazzill paper, BG Ribbon, Hero arts Stamp, SU stamp and ink, Flower stickers (yes I said it -stickers hehehe) and bling

Lots of Marah Johnson stuff on these --- I just love her!

Sankaris Movie Challenge

This was my inspiration for breakfast at tiffanys
the challenge is located here:

I loved her coat! and that funny cat mask - and here you go!

Birthday Cards

Here are the two cards I made for this party --- I used one card from my stock too (three birthdays in one party -- it was kinda fun!)

Anyway here are the cards:

This was made to match the vase - the Celebrate is from SU.
I clear embossed the flowers to give it more interest. Mom said she thought it was beautiful. (Yay!)

This is basic grey paper and chipboard elements --- I added a lot of bling and bright colors because that is what Jenni likes - I "over decorated" the card for her. She brought it back to the dorm with her because she wants to show it off (Another Yay!)
It was a fun party and then we went to a Halloween party after.
We had a busy day!

Vase Filled

Here is the complete gift for my mom - who is turning 80.

The "flowers" are candy coated spoons -- there are 5 different "bouquets" all different flavors, 1. chocolate with marshmellows, 2. chocolate with mint, 3. chocolate with white chocolate, 4. butterscotch, 5. chocolate, white chocolate and butterscotch. The are for dipping in coffee or hot chocolate or just eating!

I am really hoping she likes this!
I still need to make her card

This is what I made for part of my mom's present

This was made using Tim Holtz fragments


This was fun to make - sorry I have been so quiet work has been nuts!

Kimono Cards

Got this idea from Michelle's Rubber Room (thanks!)

Little Kimono cards with Obis and everything.
I used Bazzill, a Studio G stamp. and Bazzill ribbon the the lavendar ones and 7 Gypsies with SU ribbon on the red ones.

card set

Using the theme of the pink and green cards I made a set of 4 cards and a box to put them in. I used my nesties I just got in the mail and the swiss dots embossing folder too. These are Bazzill and Basic Grey papers - Of course pop dots! hehehe

and the box to store them in:

KWerner Color Challenge

These colors were a HUGE challenge for me. ACKKK!
Well here is what I came up with.
Bazzill and American Craft Paper, Misc stash items.


I made the first one for Kadee Morrisons challenge and the second one to match.

Bazzill, basic grey,Changito and pop dots for both!


I made these two notebooks for special orders and the one on the right sold too.
WOW It is soooo cool to sell something you have made by hand.
The request was Red, Black and Skulls
DCWV & BoBunny Paper& SU ribbon.

The request was dots and rainbows - NO PINK
MME Paper and Bazzill Ribbon and Dew Drops

3 Notebooks

Ok - I am showing them in bunches --
These are extras that I made.
Still trying to decide what I am going to with these.

Queen Kat - last two challenges

This one we had to use purple, black, white and orange but the theme could not be Halloween -- since that is "crazy" I picked a crazy pattern tp gp woth the "I'm crazy about you" saying. The orange flowers are stamped on using Tim Holtz ink with Scrappy Cat stamp. Bazzill and DCWV paper - lots of embellies!

This is a sketch - I changed the top portion from rectangular to circular - coz... I wanted to. The stamp is SeeDs Paper is Basic Gray.

OK - I am tired - wow - see you all tomorrow!

Queen Kat - Cut itOut Challenge

This is my cut it out challenge answer. I ran this through the cuttle bug and chalked it - more non-traditional Christmas colors

Queen Kat and SF Challenge 3

Ok -Challenge 3 for SF and the Queens Challenge - Fall theme with at least two stamps
I stamped the leaves then cut them out to use as masks. I placed them on the vellum and sprayed with a mini mister using perfect pearls and tim holts reinker mix. Then I stamped the leaves onto the vellum. I stamped the pumpkins - masking as needed and then sponged in the ink and embossed them. A little ribbon, a decorative paperclip, bling and pop dots and thats it!

Second half of the Queens Challenge the recipe page: I used the sprayed mask pieces ( each one individually stamped!) coz they looked so pretty and Stickled the apple. My first recipe card ever.

SF and BG Challenge

This is Challenge Day

I am soooo needing some inspiration so I am VERY thankful to the ladies that came up with these challenges. Since I missed my scrap weekend I have been using these Challenges to get my Christmas Cards done.
The MSN group I am a member of is called Scrapping Friends. They have five challenges for this weekend. This meets the first challenge which was a layout.

This also meets the Basic Grey Challenge as it has scallops and Basic Grey.
This uses Basic Grey, DCWV and Bazzill paper, ribbon, stamp from OT (Stazon ink), inside stamp from Art Warehouse (Ranger Ink), Dew Drops (thanks Nicole!) Oh and don't forget the pop dots!

and a peek inside:

Another WCD Challenge

This one is to use blue, black , stamp and emboss
I am focusing on getting my Christmas Cards done so it was a bit of a challenge
The base of the card is embossed --- using the Art Warehouse stamp (and Versa Mark ink) The paper is Bazzill, and some from my stash - the lace is from my stash too. I inked the edge of the paper and stamped in Tim Holtz silver paint Dabber using Fiskars letter stamps to spell out Silent Night the brads are from OT and Pop Dots!

here it is:

and the inside

Queen Kat's Challenge Card

I wanted to at least make one card for World Make a Card Day - so I did Heathers challenge (use Silver or Gold) for Queen Kat -- her blog is:
This also meets the Use black Weekly challenge on Penny's Blog
Here is the card:
I used Bazzill and Basic Grey Two Scoops (thanks for the RAK Alana!). The tree is Hero Arts, the Noel is Studio G and the dots on the ribbon are Art Warehouse all embossed in Gold Tinsel from Stampendous using Versa Mark. The ribbon is from Sharon's stash (thanks for sharing!) and the brads are from Oriental Trading. Oh and Pop Dots!

KWerner Color Challenge

I am having fun creating in my studio today. I gave KWerners challenge a try - here are the colors:

Here is my interpretation:

I used clear emboss and the resist technique -- I inked with Tim Holtz inks (the stamp is from Hero Arts) The ribbon is from Stampin Up and the paper is from scraps and of course Bazzill --- and Pop dots!
It is a pretty simple card but I like it.

Cute Card Thursday

The challenge was Christmas Animals ---- ummm nope ---no stamps
So I used my Changito stamp and Christmassy'd it up with a hat stamp from Northwoods (as well as Studio G for the words).

The paper is Bazzil and Imagination Project . I colored the Monkeys and Hat in red and green with my Koh-i-noor pencils. Then I added some stickles --- used my CM oval cutters and small circle punch. Some Stampin Up ribbon, bling and Pop Dots!


My daughter wants to have her friends over for trick or treating

Here are the invites I made -- kept them simple as I made 12 of them.

I embossed them all using the cuttlebug-- stamped the title using some of those Target dollar stamps - woo hooo -- and added a little ribbon.
My daughter Bella wrote a poem for the inside

Grab your candy bags
dress creepy and cunning
shivers will run down your spine
as we continue running

Just a Card

Here is a card I made this morning just cause I love this paper. I picked it up at the Fiskars booth at the Scrapfest (the lady gave me a 4 x 12 piece YAY!) Can't remember the brand name but I loved it.

I added some flowers I got in a Marah Johnson class and some Miss ELizabeth ribbon - The stamps are from CTMH and I embossed them. Oh and You Guessed it! Pop-dots!

Blog Candy

VERY cute paper and teddy bear stamp - you need to link and post to here by Oct 5.


This is a card I made for the Harvest Challenge
Found here:

The pumpkin stamp was from Target's dollar spot -- score! The Happy Thanksgiving is from Stampendous. The pumpkins are colored with Koh-i-noor pencils with a blending stump.
The rest is Bazzill cardstock and items from my stash. Oh pop dots of course!

Not another notebook!

This one is for my 3 year old great niece - she loves the color green and has a younger brother in the house. SO I needed to use green - something fun for a 3 year old - and keep all the item attached to the notebook in case her brother got a hold of it.
SO here is what I came up with -- the ribbon is taped down the whole length

The paper is DCWV - All dressed up stack - I thought the animal prints would be fun. I used cloth flowers attached with brads to hopefully keep them more durable.
Here is the inside:

I am hoping to get some time to do card challenges this week. Work has been C_R_A_Z_Y!
