last day to itty bitty




today is the last day to enter a card into the itty bitty challenge,
that Unity has been doing all month long.

Today's card is about two things, first I noticed when I was sorting my cards,
I really didn't have any baby boy cards and two I hadn't used my Bundle Congrats set yet!

Lisa Arana is the artist who designed the stamp, and its weird to me,
but I never paid attention to who the artist who until my friend Andrea mentioned it.

After going through my stamps, I realized that I had a lot of Lisa's without knowing it!
I guess I just like the way she thinks! lol...
I am also hoping along with Unity

Well... lets talk about my card I have a simple clean white card base Simon Says Stamp 120lbs cardstock. With the paper pad from Studio Calico Wanderlust collection.   I stamped my images, and then water colored it in blues and grays. I did a bit of the splatter in Wink of Stella Silver! I added a raised flag with the sentiment.

Well thats it for today... I think :) ya never know


Until next time

My first TE stamp


This is some exciting stuff... got my latest Simon Says Stamp order and WOW!!!
I love the Taylored Expressions stamp set I got...
You've Got Mail - Fall is so flipping cute... I want them all!!!


lol...
Here's what I did



my bestie Laura gave me a paper stack from Multi Craft, I picked the orange sheet with all its texture I love how well it went with the stamped layer... Oh and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling clear sequin came in handy, love those!  Used my Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp too... and my washi is from SU.  Went all out on coloring in my image, I tried new paper to color on Copic Blending paper, even though I used my Spectrum Noir markers instead, it worked like magic!! Will be buying more of that! My cardbase is 120lbs cs and Friends die is from SSS...

I've entered this card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge No pattern paper
Using Taylored Expressions 

That's my quick post for the day.. see you again tomorrow when I do my CYCI weekly post!

Until then...
Eva

and wishing

just a super quick post before Butter's bowling starts....

this is one of the test pieces I did for yesterdays video, hope you like it!


I added a simple Simon Says Stamp (SSS) die called Wishing along
with a few pieces of vellum covered with Glossy Accents...
on a white cardbase SSS 120lbs

Have a wonderful Saturday!!!

Until tomorrow

Badass

Unity Stamp Co has a line of stamps called ittybitty
They are individual stamps and sentiments that pack a punch of fun and touch many peoples (he)art!

Today... I'm sharing a project that took me a bit to put together, as I tried new things to get the background the way I wanted... and I love how it turned out and I hope an ittybitty you do.



I did this one for me... some days you need to be a badass!



I'm pretty good at making card, less so with video's but..
some folks wanted to know how I did the background..
So with Butter (my son) holding the cam I went to work to show how I did the background.

Like I told my friends, if you heat emboss clear or white under the colors it would be epic!

Until next time...

Faux Shaker


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

Hey just getting around to posting this to my blog...but here's the card I did last night for the Wednesday Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp.


I made my own faux shaker card for this challenge where Simon Says Stamp is calling the shots on not using paper pads or  Printed paper.  You can make your own.. I did a blue wash with white glaze on my cardstock.  I took out my  Frozen Friends from Newtons Nook and some of my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  My favorite part of the card is from first glance, you'd think this is a shaker but its not. I laid out my card with SSS Stitched Rectangle dies on 120lbs white cardstock.


I added foam tape squares on the back and began attaching my Assorted Moonshine sequins on to the card, as it would look between the layers of a shaker!  By gluing tons of them at the bottom, and smaller groups in the upper areas its been given it that shaker look.

Well thats what I've got for today

Until next time

I added a sentiment from my Simon Says Stamp collection called Big Birthday Wishes, in Memento Black, and added some twine left over from one of the tag a bag kits!  Hope you have a wonderful day...

Unity Stamp Challenge 32



Haven't done a Unity challenge in a while,
so in between Butter's classes today I put this card together.

I hope you'll like it!


Started by stamping "going to be OWL-RIGHT" from Unity Stamp Co. on some Simon Says Stamp 120lbs cardstock (white) and picking which colors I was going to use on it.. Spectrum Noir.
For the body and branch I used EB1-EB8, the leaves are DG1-DG3, acorns are BG8, LY2. While the little bird was done in CT1-CT3 and LG2-LG4. The background was done in BGR1-BGR5. I did the owl and background in a dot style ink pattern.

I used Memento ink (Black Tux) for the both stamps.
I added a couple of layers behind the top layer, the Leaf pattern paper is from Doodlebug "Happy Harvest" and DCWV Burlap stack! I also added a simple yellow ribbon.

Until next time

CYCI#87 A Color Challenge



Love this color challenge... so many blues to chose from....
I went with Stampin' Up! Marina Mist, Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon.. 



While I did use my reInkers for the main area of color which is a single layer I also added the Thanks from Simon Says Stamp's Hand Lettered Winter Wishes, in Stazon black, and I went over it in Wink of Stella Black...and for my splatter too!  Then I added tons of SSS and Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Moonshine and Sparkling Clear. I added a simple black cardstock backing, mounted onto a SSS 120lbs base card!  I've kept my design clean and simple to really show off my blue colors!

Until next time

Birthday Wishing



Here's a little something I threw together over the weekend...

Lots of Simon Says Stamp... and a dash of Doodlebug

The background was made using my Spectrum Noir markers and the Sparkle and Shine stamp set from Simon...  I did all the circles in Memento Black, and went through with my colors... making sure to leave some white space! I also used the Stitched Rectangles and the Wishing dies from Simon .... yup I loves me some Simon!

I threw in some Doodlebug cardstock for the Wishing die, I love the texture that it has and three Beetle Black sequins. The last thing I added with the sentiment from Birthday Messages... again SSS...

I love the way it turned out... hope you do to

Until next time,

Happy Mail indeed


Butter grabbed the mail today and lucky me... my little order from Unity Stamp Co. was in there... such a lovely surprise to get some new stamps... I'm sure I'll be posting lots of cute stuff early next week!




Every time you order from Unity... you get a little bad of free goodies!!!
 This time I received some pink crepe streamer and thought what am I going to do with that?

When I looked at my party monster stamp set, I knew what I was going to do...  Everyone has a little green eye'd monster in them... and with the pink crepe.. It was going to be a "she"!!!  So I took out my Spectrum Noir markers in LG 2, 3, 4 for the body and BP 1, 2, 3, 4, and 7 for the present w/bow, hat, her toes and DG 2, 3 for the grassy area... I finished it off by using BGR 1,2,3 for the background/sky areas.  I folded the crepe in quarters and snipped it to create a fringe.. added a few candy dots from Stampin' Up!. Next came my Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies I used the larges and 3rd larges for the layers!  Lastly I added the sentiment, some white twine from AC and then used adhesive foam to attach it to my base! 

I really hope you like her... I think she is ready to give to any party girl, regardless of age!
This is a card worth giving!

Until next time,
Eva

OSAT Blog Hop - Designer's Choice




Welcome back to another hop with OSAT!!! I'm first this month WooHoo...

But if you just came from Andrea's blog, I know you loved her stuff!
That card and project was incredibly cute! I hope she sends them too me!!
(Just sayin' Andrea... if they need a home, I have room for them).

This month we've got an awesome line up of designers from all over the place and
I know you're gonna love what they've put together!

This month is all about Designers Choice!

So lets get this hop started!!!

I started with my card very clean, and I threw in lots of fall colors for warmth!

I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves and Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to liven up my plain card, I also added tons of seed beads and sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Doodlebug!!! The sentiment in the center is from Simon Says Stamp and its called Flowers On My Mind which I did in the awesome Cajun Craze colored ink from Stampin' Up!

I just love the texture that the Lawn Fawn dies give my cardstock from Doodlebug!

I continued on with my leaf theme, and created a small 6 inch wreath
that I intend on giving to a friend!

I used a 6 inch MDF craft ring... and went to work adding layers of leaves!
I finished it off with some Doodlebug Bumble Bee Sequins and some Brown ribbon I picked up at the Walmart! lol....  Any how I hope you like my projects...  Oh yeah... Butter worked his butt off and ran all those leaves through the big shot for me.... we're calling that Gym for today! I <3 home-school!!!

CYCI#85 A Color Challenge


Hey welcome back to another Sunday...
its the last free Sunday before another school year starts,
and we are enjoying the last lazy weekend!

We've got another all new challenge from CanYouCaseIt.com

I went with water coloring for this weeks challenge!
and I really enjoyed it too... here's the dets!


That awesome yellow cardbase is actually a white card base that I washed the edges in a super bright yellow.. pretty cool huh?  Just remember you don't always have to have the correct color cardstock (not that I didn't) you can make it yourself, with some patience and a bit of hard work and fun! I used  Bazzill White for this card.

Next was the water coloring layer.. I started by coloring the blue circle shape.. Which I used an old glue dots cardboard as a guide... yep... and gave it a quick wash.. being careful to keep the color bright and vivid!  My Zig Clean Color real brush watercolor pens can in super handy to get the colors just how I wanted them. Next was the leaf... which I did again on watercolor paper, and washed it in browns and yellows to get the finished look you see.  Then I ran it through my big shot with Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves. After it dried I applied a bit (super thin layer) of Ranger Glossy Accents on it, which dried in no time.

I added the sentiment "Thank you" from Simon Says Stamp - Flowers On My Mind in a dark brown.
My final touch was adding some Doodlebug (yep you knew it would be in there somewhere, tehe). Which I cut using SSS die called Medium Dot Line Wafer Die.  Then I layered them to really get some dimension from it.

until next time...

Snow Angels


okay... I got the idea in my head to do a shaker...  my new stamp set by Unity Stamp Co. called Make Snow Angels and some of my fun sequins!
I used one of the sleeves from Simon Says... which is perfect to use along with a sewing machine. I have a craft (kiddie sized) sewing machine, that I use only for paper!  As you can see... I'm not the best, but not the worst at it! LMAO!!!  Anyway... I used my Zig Clean Color watercolor set, on watercolor paper and lots of Stazon ink so it won't run!   The sequins is a mix of Simon Says Moonshine, Martha Stewart Blueberry Slush, and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear (flat). I think its a great way to showcase something fun...
Until next time
