Candy, Candy, Candy…

Second Post for the Day

If your looking for the a2z Scrapbooking Design Team Challenge, click here

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with CASology Week 117.  The theme is CANDY!!  I love this theme.

Week 117 - Candy

I haven’t played with them in such a long time.  I really miss being apart of the different challenges.  I’m really going to make a big effort to participate more.

So, onto this challenge.  Candy!!  When I saw the cue card, I smiled because candy is such a perfect cue, since Halloween is on the way.  In my thinking, I felt like everyone would do a Halloween theme and as you know, I try to be as different as possible.

My mind went straight for the new stamp set that I just order and received from Newton’s Nook Designs called Apple Delights.  I ordered this set because of the “Candy Apple”!!  Perfect!!!  This set came right on time.

Take a look at my card:

Candy Apple

Can you see the shimmer on that caramel!!!  It makes me want a candy apple!!  I might have to go over to Coney Island today to get one.  I know the perfect store.

In any case, what do you think of my card?  Does it fit the criteria for CAS?  I think so.

Let me know what you think?

Guest Designer for October!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here again today as a Special Guest Designer for October for V’s Sweet Ideas blog today!!

VsSweetIdeas-logo-lg

For those of you who do not know, Vanessa is the owner of V’s Sweet Ideas Stamps!! You have to check out her store.  Its full of all sorts of crafting goodies!!  Vanessa’s stamp sets are so cute and wonderful to use.  I found Vanessa on Instagram, (just gotta love Instagram) and fell in love with her stamp sets, especially the Robot Girl stamp set.

When Vanessa reach out to me and asked if I could be a guest designer for October, I couldn’t believe it.  I was over the top excited.  I couldn’t stop smiling.  So many ideas, were swirling in my head, LOL!

Take a look at what I came up with:

Little Robot 2

Isn’t that Robot girl just the cutest thing you’ve seen this afternoon!   I had so much fun coloring her.  I must admit I colored her a couple times because I wanted to make sure she really looked like a robot. I’m pleased with her color.

Here is a closer look at the shimmer that was added so she could shine:

Little Robot

To create this card:

1. I embossed my card front with the large polka dot embossing folder from Stampin’ Up!

2. I cut some 1′ squares out of some scrap cardstock that I had lying around.

3. I attached each square to my embossed card front. Then I stamp the small images from the set onto my colored cardstock.

4. I colored my little robot with Copic markers: Body: W3, W5, W7 Dress: BG11, Bg23, BG49 Bow and Shoes: R20, R24

5. I added my daughter’s favorite craft tool, Clear Wink of Stella to give her some shine.

6. I stamped the sentiment on a banner I cut using Mama Elephant Bold Banner Creative Cuts.

7. I added some sequins and rhinestones to finish the card off.

What do you think?  Head on over to V’s Sweet Ideas blog and store and show her some love.

It’s Christmas In October…

Hello everyone!!  I’m back again with another card for the Lawnscaping Challenge No. 91: Patterned Paper. This challenge was fun to play with.

91

I received my new Clearly Besotted Stamp Set made exclusively for Simon Says Stamp Winter Friends and Die set that I had to use.

This set is so cute I can’t believe it.  4 animal images and Santa Claus are the cutest things I’ve seen in awhile.

Take a look at my card:

My Deer Christmas Card

Tell me that reindeer isn’t the cutest little thing you’ve seen in a long time.  Look at that nose, so nice a red.

Look at how he matches the pattern patter behind him.  Those little tiny reindeer’s are adorable.

This card was very easy to make. Here is how I did that.

1. I cut my card base the A2 card size (4.24 x 5.50).

2. I cut my Doodlebug Home For the Holiday paper to fit on the front of my card front.

3. I cut my Neenah Solar White cardstock with my Lawn Fawn Stitched Banner Die, the smaller one.

4. I stamped my Reindeer from Winter Friends using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then I use the Die to cut him out.

5. I Copic markers to color my reindeer: Body: E40, E41, E43, E44, E49, Nose & Ears: R24, R27

6. I added Clear Wink of Stella to his nose so that it could be a shiny nose.

7. I adhered my Reindeer to my cardstock with foam adhesive. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

8. I added Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine to the stitched banner.

9. I adhered the banner to the patten paper with foam adhesive.

10. I added Rudolph Red Skittles (how perfect are those and the name) to my banner.

Nice and Simple!!

What do you think?  Don’t you just love that little Reindeer!!

Multicolor Leaf Stamping

Hello everyone!!  I’m here again with  the CS Take It Make It Design Team for our October Challenge!!!

This month’s theme is Multicoloured Stamping!!!  This is my inspiration card!!  My first card can be found here.

Hello Friend

For these multicolored leafs, I used the same baby wipe technique.

I added a couple of different re-inkers to the baby wipe and stamped the image onto it, then onto my card panel.

I remove my mask, stamped my sentiment in the center of those leaves and added dash lines.

For added interest, I added rhinestones and some sequins to my card panel.

Nothing to it.  I hope this card inspires you to come an play along with us.

What do you think?  Will you give this technique a try?  You should!!  The prize for this challenge is amazing.

Birdie Love Letter…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with a new challenge that I’ve wanted to play along with for awhile now but haven’t had a chance.  So, today is that day!! I’m a bit excited about it.

The new challenge is Lawnscaping Challenge No. 91: Patterned Paper.  How much fun will this be! I have so much pattern paper that has never been touched.  I’m hoping I can really search my stash an come up with some great cards.

91

I decided to use some of my retired Stampin’ Up! Welcome Neighbor DSP for this challenge.  I have tons of it and this is such a great way to use it up.

Take a look at my card:

I love you so much

Don’t you just love this little birdie!!  I do.  This image is from Gerda Steiner Designs and its called Cute Bird with Letter Digital Stamp.   Gerda’s images are so cute, you must check them out.

I added some new DoubleClick Skittles Sunshine Yellow for added interest.  Are they just the cutest thing you’ve seen.  That yellow color is awesome.

So, I have another first that I can’t wait to share with all of you.  I videotaped myself coloring with my Copic markers!!

Take a look at my very first video. I am truly excited about this.  I’ve wanted to create videos for a long time but was afraid and now I’m super excited about it.

So what do you think?  Let me know.
