MOJO454 ~ TDLLC "HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~ IT'S YOUR SPECIAL DAY" card using Tim Holtz Crazy Cats, Talk and Things **PLUS A GIVEAWAY!!**


Happy Thursday Everybody!   I have a TupeloDesignsLLC Design Team card project for you today. I pulled out some stamps that are just too dang funny!!  The stamps are from the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection:  Crazy Cats, Crazy Talk and Crazy Things.  These stamps are red rubber and stamps sooooo nicely. I hope they come out with some more Crazy Talk and maybe some Crazy Dogs ~ haha!!



This "crazy cat" is hilarious ~ haha.  just a fun image to stamp, color and die-cut.



The cat image was so easy to color as well as a lot of fun ~ laughing happened all while doing so!

 Here's how I colored it in using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens after stamping it with Versafine Black ink:

Step 1. Color the whole cat less his eyes and nose in 900 Warm Gray 2.
Step 2. I then took 67 Mustard and colored in some random spots.


Step 3. I put some more spots beside others and some in random places using 72 Beige.
Step 4. *NOTE: I have the wrong marker in the picture. I then colored over the areas on the stamped image that show shading (slanted lines) with 901 Gray Tint and put some pink in it's ears with 028 Pale Pink.
Step 5. I colored in some half moons in his eyes with 302 Haze Blue



The dies as so easy to line up to cut out the images.  This cat cracks me up every time I look at it.



I used this week's MojoMonday Sketch #454 ~ I flipped the sketch:  MOJO454


These are all the fun stamps I used ~ I also used the coordinating dies for the Crazy Cats and the Crazy Things.

MOJO453~"WISH YOU THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DAY" card using Altenew stamps ~ PLUS A *BLOG GIVEAWAY!!*


Happy Thursday Everybody!!  Today I have a TupeloDesignsLLC Design Team project for you.

I am on Day 3 of unpacking my stamp room. I almost have all the boxes unpacked that I shipped last September. After I get all that stuff put somewhere.. I have 4 large tubs and two boxes of stamping stuff that I kept in Missouri that I will need to find a home for.  I have a LOT of stuff ~ way more than I really need. I am hoping to share some things along the way with others and will be trying to do a weekly giveaway. All you need to do is to leave a comment with your email address ~ but please spell your email out instead of how it should be.  That way it doesn't get picked up by others who have nothing better to do than to spam others.   ~ On to my card!!

I used another of the Altenew stamp sets ~ Beautiful Day ~ I LOVE to say to people "have a beautiful rest of your day!" ~ so this set was a "must get" to have the sentiment itself ~ of course the flowers are gorgeous as well.

I used an awesome stamping tool to stamp the flowers and leaves. After stamping I cut them out leaving some white around the edges.

MOJO452 ~ TDLLC DT "WELCOME LITTLE ONE" baby card using Lawn Fawn Little Bundle stamps & Dies


Happy Thursday Everyone~!  I have a TupeloDesignsLLC Design Team card project for you.   I pulled out another Lawn Fawn set, this time it's Little Bundle.  My stamp room still isn't unpacked, so I'm working from what I had with me in Missouri and Lawn Fawn is very accessible to me ~ haha ~ love their stamps and dies!!

*GIVEAWAY!  I would like to send this card to someone.  If you are interested, please leave a comment with your email address (not all spelled out ~ but like   something AT gmail DOT com) ~ I'll pick a name next Wednesday and mail it out to you!

I stamped all the images (except the clothesline poles) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some Neenah White card stock and then colored in all the baby clothing pieces with Copic Markers. I put all the little pieces on Foam Tape.  Look at all those fun little clothespins. I glued each of them on with a dot on glue on the ends of each of them.   I lost one in the making of the card and luckily I had some extras stamped, so I just had to die-cut another set.  The Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid papers and Let's Polka in the Meadow papers are such wonderful papers and so easy to pair with any of the Lawn Fawn stamp sets.



I used this week's MOJO Monday Sketch:  MOJO452

I think I am allergic to the state I now live in...  sneezing, sneezing.. MORE sneezing..  watery eyes~ I'm a hot mess on a daily basis.  My allergy meds aren't doing that good of a job and that's why I'm thinking I'm allergic to my surroundings~ haha!   I think this is why I haven't started in on unpacking my stamp stuff just yet.   I plan on tackling it this weekend.  ~ wish me luck! ~


Thanks for stopping by..  remember if you'd like to put your name in the drawing to receive the card be sure and comment with your email address.  ~ hugs!!

card stock:  Neenah White, Black, MFT Blue

MOJO451 'WE'RE MERMAID FOR EACH OTHER" card using Lawn Fawn Mermaid For You stamps/dies



Happy Thursday Everyone!! I have a TupeloDesignsLLC ~ TDLLC (using that link earns me points and you 10% off your first order ~ thank you)  Design Team card project for you today.  I used some stamps and dies from a new Lawn Fawn set called Mermaid For You.  The images and sentiments are absolutely adorable.  The heart is from the Lawn Fawn set called Party Animal.  I used some Copic Markers to color up the images.

I haven't felt too good the last few days. Dealing with an off and on tummy ache ~ which always seems to hurt when I need to be getting something done.  I have a crazy rash of bumps on my arms, wrist and some on my legs, that I have no idea what they are.  I had a doctor look at the today and they recommended putting some hydrocortisone on them.  We are attending a Military Ball tomorrow night so I'll look really suave with my bumpy arms..  haha!    Anyways ~ after tearing through stuff in the garage tonight looking for what I needed to make my card, feeling frustrated because I didn't feel well..  my husband says to me "I'm really proud of you keeping up with your Design Team cards with all that's been going on"..  made me feel like a million dollars..  well, maybe a 50!  haha, but it did make me feel good that's for sure.  After posting this I am taking two Benadryl and applying some cream and heading straight to bed. Hopefully they'll disappear overnight.  ~ hugs!


Back to my card................ After I stamped and colored up all the images, I lined up the dies and used some Post-It tape to keep the in place when I ran the through my BigShot machine.  These dies are soooooo easy to line up and they cut like butter!


After die cutting everything I started putting the card together. I layered the white banner with one I cut in black to help it show up more.   I stamped the sentiment onto the banner by cutting it apart between the word "mermaid" and "for" ~ it's really easy to line them back up if you needed to after cutting the apart.




Here's my happy couple!   I noticed the mark on the boy's hair after I put the card together. My cutters that I use to trim apart dies is buried somewhere in the garage. I think one of the pieces on the die must've poked in the paper ~ when the rest of my stuff is unpacked, I'll trim up the dies and get them stored on a piece of magnet.




 I used this week's MoJo Monday Sketch:  SKETCH #451
I flipped the sketch around for my card.

I wanted to share my messy mess that I made while I set out to make this card.  I'll be SO happy when I get a chance to get my stamp room unpacked and I can make cards in there instead of digging in tubs out in the garage..  haha!  hugs~ Pam



SUPPLIES:

card stock:  Black, MFT blue, Neenah White
pattern paper:  Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh paper pad
stamps:  Lawn Fawn Mermaid For You, Lawn Fawn Party Animal

TDLLC ~ Patriotic "THANK YOU" card using Altenew Peony Bouquet and Label Love stamps



Happy Thursday Everyone!!   Today I have a Design Team card for TupeloDesignsLLC  (*using that link earns me points and you get 10% off your first order ~ thank you!!) for you.

My family made a 4 day journey across the country last week and I haven't unpacked all my stuff yet ~ I'm still working on unpacking a whole house!  I didn't get a chance to make and share a card for Memorial Day, so when I went to make a card tonight I knew I wanted it to be Red, White and Blue.

I used the flower and leaves stamps from the gorgeous Altenew  Peony Bouquet set.   I own the coordinating dies that go with this set, but my Big Shot is still packed up so I had to hand cut the flower and leaves.  I highly suggest getting the dies  ~ it makes it sooooo easy to cut these out.

After stamping the flower outlines on the top layer, I stamped the solid flower on top of them. I stamped the "Thank you" stamp from the Altenew Label Love stamp set a couple of times, trimmed it out and then layered it onto a blue piece of card stock.     The silver sequins are an added touch.  I usually use my Multi Medium Matte, but it's packed, so I used some Scotch Tacky Glue to attach the sequins.


Sorry for the short post today. I had to unpack a trailer today to get to my craft stuff, then trying to get dinner for my family, unpacking some stuff and then working on the card just wore me plum out!   Hugs to you all!!



SUPPLIES:

card stock:  Neenah White, Red and Blue
stamps: Altenew Peony Bouquet and Altenew Label Love
ink: Versafine Black, Altenew ink cubes Blues, Reds and Greens
accessories: Scor-Buddy, Foam Tape, Silver Sequins

"YOU TURN ME ON!" card using Lawn Fawn stamps & dies



Happy Thursday Everyone!  When this post goes live I should already be to our destination and getting settled in.     Today I have a Guest Designer post for Tupelo Designs LLC.. (using that link earns me points and you 10% off your first order)

I have a quick and super easy to make card.  This was so much fun to make.   I took a piece of plastic, rubbed a Mustard Seed Distress Ink Pad on it, spritzed it with water in my Ranger ~ Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer and smooshed it onto the watercolor paper. I would push it down while bending the plastic in half, then push it down in another spot. Super easy and the results are so neat.    I dabbed up any excess with a paper towel and set it aside to dry ~ you could heat set it with a heat gun, but mine is in storage so I had to let it dry naturally.

I stamped the "lightbulb" from the You Turn Me On stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink then colored it with some Copic Markers. The yellows I used are: Y06, Y18, Y35 for the metal part I used: N3, N4 and N5.  I then die-cut it out.   I stamped the sentiment  with Versafine Black ink on a white piece of card stock, trimmed it down, layered it on a black piece of card stock and put the card together.   The bulb is on foam tape.

I hope everyone has a super wonderful day!


SUPPLIES:

card stock:  black, Neenah White, Tim Holtz Ranger Watercolor paper
stamps:  Lawn Fawn You Turn Me On
ink: Memento Black, Versafine Black, Copic Markers, Mustard Seed Distress Ink
accessories: Scor-Buddy, Plastic, Distress Water Sprayer, Lawn Fawn You Turn Me On dies and Foam Tape

MOJO447 "I LOVE YOU S'MORE!" card using Lawn Fawn stamps/dies *W/MEASUREMENTS



Happy Thursday Everyone!!  Sadly, this will be my last Guest Designer Post for Tupelo Designs LLC. (using that links earns me points and you 10% off your first order.)  I have had such a fun two months sharing cards using products from their site. I hope that I inspired you with the cards I have shared.  **UPDATE:  I am staying on the DT ~ but will be away from posting during the move ~ I do have some cards that I will schedule.  Thank you TDLLC for asking me to stay on!!

  I will be moving in about two weeks.  It's a long journey across the country and my crafty stuff has to be packed up. As soon as I get there and get things unpacked, I will be back to posting and sharing card projects ~ and maybe even some scrapbook pages!!

The reason I haven't been so active online is this kid below..  he is my youngest son and he is a high school golfer. He has made it back to the MO State Championship another year in a row.  Several colleges want him to come play golf for them, but we've narrowed it down to one.   I have been so blessed to have been able to watch him play and hone his game into what it is today. During his Freshman and Sophomore year I went to all his matches/tournaments that I could. The last two years I haven't missed a swing of the club.  I will miss this time of year when he goes off to college and I won't be able to watch him each week.........  I better get to the card!!!


Now.. let's talk about this fun "I LOVE YOU S'MORE!" card ~ I just love the adorable Lawn Fawn images and their dies that cut like butter!  I also used some Lawn Fawn pattern papers.

When I started on my card I had cut everything and was laying it out to make sure it would all fit. I had stamped, colored and die-cut more pieces than I needed.  I've already put the extras in a small container I have of stuff that I'll use on cards when I get to our destination.



I took some pictures along the way of the coloring ~ I didn't take a picture of the bear because I wasn't a fan of my coloring on him ~ but I sure did like the way the flames came out!  I stamped all my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic Markers.

For the biggest flame:  I started with the red at the bottom, then the orange, dark yellow and then the lightest yellow. Blending each color as I went up.


For the middle flame: I colored the darkest orange at the bottom, then the darkest yellow, middle yellow and then the lightest yellow. Blending each color as I went up.


For the smallest flame: I colored the darkest yellow at the bottom, then middle yellow and the lightest at the top. Blending each color as I went up.


For the moon: I colored the darkest yellow in the bottom third of the moon, then colored in the middle yellow and then the lightest yellow on the top.

I used this week's MOJO Monday Sketch:  MOJO447

SUPPLIES:

card stock:  Black, Teal, Light Green and Neenah White
