Congratulations!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!  I’m super excited today!!  My first born is graduating from high school today!!  I’m super excited and overcome with emotion.  I feel happy, excited, sad, scare and curiosity all at the same time.  I knew this day would come but it sure seems like it came so super fast.  Just yesterday he was walking with me to my college classes. Now he will be off to his own college.  Totally a full circle moment for me.  I love him with all my heart and soul!!  I know that he will do well on this new journey in his life.  I hope he loves college as much as I did!!

CONGRATULATIONS E!!

Sticking to the CASology challenge, I created a fun card for my son to let him know that he made it and this is just the beginning!!

Take a look at my card:

Hooray (CAS)

I’m having fun with this cue card this week.   I’m not sure if you know, I love owls.  My favorite one is the white owl from Harry Potter.  I wish I could have one.  My daughter said she would buy one for me some day.  Yes!!

For this card, I used Gerda Steiner Designs Graduation Owl.  Its a free digital stamp from her store.  Super cute and fun to color!!

  1. I downloaded the image and used photoshop to place him on my cardstock.
  2. I printed the image onto the heavyweight cardstock, cut and scored to create a top folding card.
  3. I used Copic markers to color him in: Body: E31, E35,E37, White Gel Pen Stomach:R20, W0, W1, White Gel Pen Nose: 100 Eyes: BG0000 Cap: N5, Clear Wink of Stella
  4. Then I stamped the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Lunch Box Notes using Versafine Black Ink.
  5. I used the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners.

Nice, Easy, Clean and Simple!

I’m playing along with Gerda Steiner’s Share Your Design Challenge!

CASology 174 – Owl

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is :

Week 174 - Owl

Take a look at my postcard:

Thank you Owl

Oh man, I’m super excited about this postcard!!  I love how this turned out.  This image and  is Flora (Winter Owl on Tree Stump) from Purple Onion Design and I LOVE it!!

When I first saw these images I thought they were super cute but two small to color or watercolor so I was afraid to buy them.  Then I saw my good friend Julia from Just One More Card use them and she convinced me to give these stamps a try and BOY I’m glad she did.

For this postcard, I watercolored my stamped image.

I used Prima Watercolor Pencils:

  1. Scenic Route #62 and #58
  2. Hair & Skin Tones #16 and #90
  3. The Basics #91 and #22
  4. Earth Tones #119 and #114

The “thank you” sentiment set is from Purple Onion Design as well.

I’m super proud of myself and this postcard.  The colors are amazing.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

I Love Owls!!!!

OMG, I’m so excited about my new 3-D project.  I saw this project at my upline Yvette Sanchez’s meeting two weeks ago and feel in love with it; that I had to make one for myself and you!  Please do not get to excite, wait yes, get super excited.  So here you go:

Owl Gift Box

Tell me this isn’t the cutest Owl you ever saw.  I know that’s what I said.  Paper-crafting is such a wonderful craft.  Look how I transformed a kraft box into a cute, lovable owl with paper, candy and no stamping.  My make and take class at work will learn how to make these in two weeks.

This box can be given out as teacher gifts, students gift, gift for individuals that do not celebrate Halloween traditional or just because it’s so cute! This would put a smile on anyone’s face.  I’m selling these at the craft fair this weekend.

Supplies:

Cardstock: Basic Black (121045), Crumb Cake (120953), and Pumpkin Pie (105117)

Accessories: Decorative Window Gift Box (132146), Scallop Oval Punch (119856), 2-3/8 Scallop Circle Punch (118874), 1-3/8 Circle Punch (119860), Blossom Punch (125603) and Googly Eyes
