Create along with me

We finally have the new room looking more like a room ready to create.  The girls and I are getting excited for Stamp a Faire!  Our goal was to have the room ready to boogie in time for the huge stamping event.  

So as they went to sleep tonight, I got a card made for the Create along with me challenge.
This is Betsy's card that I used as my jumping off point.  I really liked the polka dots and the colors scheme.

 I had a polka dot stencil in my stash that I busted out.  I used the new ranger oxide inks, so I didn't have as rich of a color scheme, but stayed with the same colors.  I added some wink of stella as a fun accent.

While we are'nt done yet, here are some shots of different areas in the room.  I have a stamping section, reading section and knitting/tv section.  At some point I will give an official tour of the room.
 With the new oxide inks, I am going to need a new ink storage system!
It's a good life!

MIM in the new house!

Well we aren't 100% packed in the new stamping room, but we have some things done.  One of the first things we have done was sending out cards from the really large card stash.  I mush admit it feels really good to bust some cards out.  We are being intentional about sending out mail and it feels AWESOME!

This was made for a sweet friend who is expecting her second child.  I loved this MIM emboss resist shadow sentiment challenge and went close to the inspiration from Ashley because I am rusty with my card skills :)  This was my first time using this technique.  Oh, why the gray shadow you ask?  Well, we didn't find the stamp cleaner yet so I used water and it didn't get that black all the way off.  Oh well, it still turned out fun!

It's a good life!

PTI Blog Hop

PTI blog hop is underway for April.  I don't often have time to create during the day, but I did today.  Here is the inspiration photo.

I wouldn't have ever put this color combo together, but I was loving the end result I have.  So much fun.  



I'm embarrassed to say that this is the first time I pulled out my color pop butterflies.  I have had it for months.  The color pop series never disappoints.  I can't wait to make more with this set and color combo.

It's a good life!

Zappy Patterns behind a window

So this is for the MIM Patterns behind a window challenge.  I have no idea why this was a hard one for me.  I started a few days ago for Logan's birthday and nothing would work for me.  I had to give him a watercolor card I did instead bur this will be good in the stash.  Everything is popped up on foam tape and the pattern paper is peeking through behind the cut out.

It's a good life!

Create along with PTI

Well, I have had the box from last month here for some time and I still haven't cracked it open.  I had a bit of time today and was able to make this card.  I was inspired by Nicole's card for the new quoted stamp set for the Create along with me challenge.  I love the loose watercolor look.  This is hitting home for me and some close friends.

It's a good life!

Think Sprig!

This is a beauty I made for the PTI MIM curved sentiments challenge.  I had this background that I made extra of from the anniversary challenge and thought it would be fun to incorporate this for this week's MIM challenge.  I did find that some sentiments were easier to curve than others.  So glad I got this stamp set.  I am making Mother's day cards to invite everyone over for a dinner at my house and wanted to get a jump on it.

It's a good life!

Cece and Daddy love

This is my last entry in the PTI Anniversary challenge to use a photo in a project.  This is for Randy and his girl Cece.  He is going to be away for about a month and she misses him horribly when he is gone.  I am sure she will be keeping this for a while before giving this to her Dad.

It's a good life!
