The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - (CAS) Clean and Simple

Hi everyone!  It's time for another challenge from The Sisterhood of Crafters.  This week, our host,  Nancy has challenged us to design a CAS (Clean And Simple ) card.  I sometimes struggle with clean and simple given the fact that I like to add too many layers and a few embellishments.  I now have a mantra I keep in mind as I'm making a clean and simple card and that is, as much white space as possible.  It seems to be working.  The Design Team has some wonderful projects to share.


Stamp Sets:  Colorful Seasons - sentiment (Stampin' Up!), Lots of Lavender (Stampin' Up!); Distress Inks:  Black Soot, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Wilted Violet (Tim Holtz); Cardstock:  Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions); Dies:  Stitched Oval Stacklets Dies (Taylored Expressions); Other:  Sugar Cube Enamel Dots (Taylored Expressions)

Happy Birthday in Stitches

Rain and snow and ice, oh my!  Yes, that is what is on the weather agenda for me tonight, tomorrow and Saturday.  I am so ready for spring to get here.  I want sunshine and blue skies and windows open to let in the fresh air.  In the meantime, I'm playing along with challenges and keeping myself busy.

You know, I do love to sew but haven't done so in years.  I actually sold my high-end Pfaff sewing machine machine that did everything but the dishes and bought a simple, easy to use Brother sewing machine.  Sigh...I've never used it.  I think it's time to get it out of the closet and learn how to use it.  I want some new clothes for spring and I only have two huge totes full of fabric.  I think a new wardrobe is in the making!  


Stamp Set:  Sew Happy (The Craft's Meow); Inks:  Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!), Faded Jeans, Gathered Twigs, Vintage Photo (all Tim Holtz); Cardstock:  Chocolate Chip, Whisper White (both Stampin' Up!), Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions); Dies:  Sewing Elements Dies (Spellbinders), Stitched Rectangle Stacklets (Taylored Expressions); Other:  Harvest Sequins (Taylored Expressions), Mellow Ribbon (BasicGrey)

The theme is I used is from The Paper Players Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.

Hello and welcome!  It's time for a new challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Helen our host and it's our Masculine "Anything Goes."  As you can see, my card has a little twist to it which is why it's called a Twist Pop Up Card.  When you open it, the inside spreads out and reveals what's inside.  They are super easy to make and I know my kids and grandkids will get a kick out of it.  The tutorial I followed can be found HERE.



Stamp Sets:  Epic Celebrations (Stampin' Up!), Wetlands (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Cookie Monster (Taylored Expressions), Poppy Seed (Taylored Expressions); Cardstock:  Cookie Monster (Taylored Expressions), Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions), Whisper White - for the twist mechanism (Stampin' Up!); Patterned Paper:  Hello Happiness (Taylored Expressions); Other:  Postage Stamp Punch - retired (Stampin' Up!), Sugar Cube Enamel Dots (Taylored Expressions)

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #260

This week we have a color challenge at the CAS Colours & Sketches and the Design Team has some wonderful inspiration to get you started.  It's a beautiful winter's day here in sunny Iowa with temperatures in the 50s.  Don't get too excited, though, come tomorrow the rain and snow and ice are back and power could be iffy at times.  Sigh... is it spring, yet?

The colors for our current challenge had me stumped.  How was I ever going to put them together?  Here's what I did.  I started with a Sugar Cube card base.  For the Sweet Sugarplum, I cut a stitched rectangle out of the Succulent Garden patterned paper.  To that I added a strip of Marina Mist cardstock and added a strip of the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape.  The sentiment is from the Apron of Love stamp set and stamped using Poppy Seed ink.  For the flower, I stamped it from the Amazing You stamp set in Peekaboo Peach ink onto a piece of Peekaboo Peach cardstock and fussy cut the flower.  For the finishing touch, I added a Glitter Gem.


Stamp Sets:  Amazing You, Apron of Love (both Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Peekaboo Peach (Stampin' Up!), Poppy Seed (Taylored Expressions); Cardstock:  Marina Mist, Peekaboo Peach (both Stampin' Up!), Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions); Dies:  Stitched Rectangle Stacklets Dies (Taylored Expressions); Patterned Paper:  Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper - retired (Stampin' Up!); Other:  Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape, Glitter Gem

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #252

Hello and welcome to another sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  Today's card was so much fun to make.  It's a Twist Pop Up Card.  As you see, the front looks quite normal but when you open it, out pops the inside of the card.  This one it for my oldest granddaughter's birthday which isn't until May but I do like to plan ahead.  I like to get all of my cards done and filed by month.  When needed, I add a personal note and send them on the way.  It's an easy way to never forget a birthday or anniversary.  You can find the tutorial I followed HERE.



Stamp Sets:  Amazing You, Beautiful You - sentiments (both Stampin' Up!), Stitched Stems Stamp & Die Combo (Taylored Expressions); Inks:  Crumb Cake (Stampin' Up!), Poppy Seed (Taylored Expressions) ; Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Sweet Sugarplum, Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi (all Stampin' Up!); Patterned Paper:  Curtain Call 8x8 Paper Pad (Graphic 45); Other:  Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate (Taylored Expressions), Leafy Branch (Taylored Expressions), Stitched Stems Stamp & Die Combo (Taylored Expressions), Clear Wink of Stella Brush, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Daisy Thank You

Today I'm playing along with the Color Throwdown Challenge.  It's been a while since I've done so and I loved the colors they had for this challenge.  I decided to do a one layer card so the first thing I did was emboss the image of my Big Blooms - Daisy from Taylored Expressions with white embossing powder.  Then, I used my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to watercolor it.  I was pleasantly surprised that the Crumb Cake cardstock from Stampin' Up! held up to the water as well as it did.  The sentiment is actually stamped in Basic Gray ink but it looks black in the photo.  I love those oxide inks.


Stamp Sets:  Big Blooms - Daisy (Taylored Expressions), Background Bits - sentiment (Stampin' Up!); Ink:  Basic Gray; Distress Oxide Inks:  Black Soot, Peeled Paint, Wilted Violet (Tim Holtz); Cardstock:  Crumb Cake; Other:  Whisper White Embossing Powder (Stampin' Up!)

WWC157 - Heidi's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Wednesday has rolled around again and that means it's time for a new Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Heidi is hosting our "All About Occasions" Challenge.  When spending some time looking over various blogs I follow, I came across a wonderful design done by Nance Leedy.  She made her own designer paper which you can see HERE.  I loved it so much, I just had to give it a try.  I didn't have some of the colors she used so I substituted and I changed up the images.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #259

This week we have a sketch challenge CAS Colours & Sketches and the Design Team has some wonderful inspiration to get you started.  As you can see, rather than place my sentiment at the lower right, I put it on the tag.  I wanted to keep it as clean and simple as I could.  What you can't see in the photo are the two strips of sparkly washi tape on each end.  It just does not want to photograph well.  And, on top of that my digital camera is no longer working.  I used my new cell phone and it didn't do a very good job.


Stamp Set:  Colorful Seasons - sentiment (Stampin' Up!); Ink:  Dapper Denim (Stampin' Up!); Cardstock:  Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions); Other:  Tags, Scallop Combo #2 (Sizzix), 1/4" White Ribbon, Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape (Stampin' Up!)

The Hearts Have It

Whew!  A new challenge that has you make two different designs using the same stamp or die and different occasions.  The Twofer Card Challenge should be a fun one.  I played along with it as well with the CAS Watercolour Challenge and The Paper Players Challenge.

The card on the left is done using Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide inks to make a watercolored background for the heart.  Actually the heart was cut out of my first attempt and I didn't like it but it did beautifully as a die cut.  The stamps I used are both from Stampin' Up!  The sentiments are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and the other is the Amazing You stamp set.  They were stamped using Poppy Seed ink from Taylored Expressions.

For the card on the right, I used the colors from The Paper Players.  I made my own background paper by stamping Real Red ink and Crumb Cake ink using the little heart from the Jar of Love stamp set by Stampin' Up!  I stamped it off so the colors would be softer and stay in the background.  The sentiment on the bottom right is from the retired Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent stamp set.  It was stamped using Poppy Seed ink from Taylored Expressions

The hearts were cut using the Sunshine Wishes Dies by Stampin' Up!  For the labels I used the Modern Label Punch and the Word Window Punch both retired from Stampin' Up!.  The finishing touches were adding some Nuvo Winter Blizzard Glitter Drops to the birthday card and Pearl Basic Jewels to the anniversary card.


Both of my cards have been entered in the Twofer Card Challenge.  I've also entered the card on the left in the CAS Watercolour Challenge and the card on the right in The Paper Players Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your projects, click the images below.

WWC156 - Penny's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

It's a snow covered Wednesday here in Iowa but that doesn't stop this week's new Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Penny is our host this week and it's time for our Feminine "Anything Goes" challenge.  For my card I decided to try my hand at a never ending card.  I know they have been around for a very long time but it is my first attempt.  I still have some things I want to add to it but am not certain what occasion it will be for so I'm going to wait for those.

I tried to make a video of how it looks on the move but it just didn't work out.  I don't have a stand for my phone and my digital camera has quit working.  I hope the photos give you somewhat of an idea.  I followed a tutorial by Dawn Griffith and you can she how hers opens up HERE.





Stamp Set:  Sunshine Sayings (Stampin' Up!); Ink:  Always Artichoke (Stampin' Up!); Cardstock:  Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla (both Stampin' Up!); Patterned Paper:  Once Upon a Springtime (Graphic 45); Other:  Lots of Labels Framelits Dies (Stampin' Up!)

Crafty Calendar February Challenge - Two or More Layers

Wow!  Where did January go?  Here we are in February and ready for the next challenge at Crafty Calendar.   The challenge this month is to use two or more layers on your card.  Our sponsors this month are Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and Crafty Ribbons.

For all the challenge details and to share your project at the Crafty Calendar Challenge, just click HERE.

So, let me introduce you to Keith the Cool Koala from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  Don't you think he is adorable?  He was such fun to create.  I printed him onto a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and a piece of Shimmer White then, fussy cut the inside of his ears and belly from the Shimmer White and added those to the Smoky Slate image.  Then, I fussy cut the whole image.  Oh, his nose was fussy cut from the white one and colored using a Black Wink of Stella Brush.  His nose does have a wee bit of sparkle.  I also added a touch of SU Blush Blossom to his ears.  I added Keith to the card using a Mini Wobble Spring.  He's such a jolly koala!

I started with a card base of Taylored Expressions Sugar Cube cardstock.  I used the TE Splatter Embossing Folder to add texture to the layer of TE Cookie Monster cardstock and added a piece of patterned paper from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack from TE.

The sentiment is from the Epic Celebration stamp set by Stampin' Up! and stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Poppy Seed ink from Taylored Expressions.  The banner was made using the Triple Banner Punch.  The finishing touch was adding some TE Cookie Monster Enamel Dots and some TE Sugar Cube Enamel Dots.


Here's a short video I made to show the wiggle and the wobble.  It's my very first video and I have no idea what I'm doing.  ☺  Hopefully, it works and you all get to see Keith's moves!

Thinking of You

Well, it looks like I'm going to be forced to get a new camera.  I'm not sure if it's the battery, the charger or it has simply worn out for all the use I give it.  I'm headed for the camera store in a day or two to have them check it out for me and I'm hoping it will be an easy fix, like a new battery.  In the meantime, I'm using my cell phone.  It's not doing too bad a job but I much prefer the camera.

My card today is a very simple one.  I used my Water Droplets stamp set by Designs by Ryn and stamped directly on the TE Sugar Cube card base using Marina Mist ink from Stampin' Up!  I cut a strip of Marina Mist cardstock and added it to the card front.  The sentiment was stamped on TE Sugar Cube cardstock using Poppy Seed ink from Taylored Expressions.  It's from the Colorful Seasons stamp set by Stampin' Up!  Next, I punched the ends using the Banner Punch from Stampin' Up!  The finishing touch was the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  As I said, simple but I think pretty.  I love those water droplets.


The sketch I used is from the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
