I was surfing around and found Joy's blog. She has a really neat challenge going on right now about finding inspiration from others. I LOVED this idea. As everyone knows, I love Dawn so much. I am inspired by here all the time here is her card that I was inspired by Here is my card
It uses tons of Dawn things as well. I am in love with the wood grain impression plate. There just isn't enough time in the day for all of this crafting LOL!
Okay in this house it is more like make it Sundays LOL! Izzy and I are on a bend in the stamping room. I am working on organization big time along with going through all of my PTI stamps and putting them in a organization system. While on this mission, I stamped out my Out on a limb stamp set. Today we baptized my niece Ellie and I didn't have a card for her, so this worked perfectly! Out on a limb is one of those sets that I was so excited to get and then before I even busted it out they decided to remake it with the sentiments 25% bigger. Instead of using what I had I just put it away. I tell you, if I ever do win a stamp set from PTI, I will get the sentiments for sure. There are some gems there and I think it really works for a baptism. The challenge of this week was to color with copics on colored cardstock. I used the leaf outline and then colored with 3 different green copic markers. It was fun and I really liked my end result. I did use versa mark and polks dots basics to add some fun to the background. It's a good life! Terri E.
Wouldn't it be great if that was really the theme of our lives? My hubby has been away at an outage and it has surely not been easy peasy around here LOL! This little one my daughter took in a heart beat and sent to one of her little friends. Knowing Izzy it is up in her room still LOL! Have a great one. Oh, if you haven't listened to the PTI podcast I would encourage you to do that. They had a segment on organizing your stamps that was super interesting. Leah said she stamps every image right as she gets it. It allows her to see exactly what she has and how they will stamp for her and it also allows her to get them inky and get ideas flowing. I have cough *a lot*, but I did start this and as I was doing it I just had to stop and make two cards. How fun is that? Actually I liked them so much that I wanted to keep them and send them out for a publication call. Crazy! It's a good life! Terri E.
Well, it has been a HUGE work week and the first week of Randy's outage. WOWZIERS, I have been super overwhelmed and that means not much time to stamp. Well I did get to two challenges. The first is the SFYTT challenge. Here is my card
The other is a big challenge over at Joanne's blog for her anniversary. I go the color combo, grid paper, kraft and twine from her. How much fun is that? I don't often use orange and pink together, but it worked for this cutie. Sorry about the picture, it was dark here and I needed to get this cutie up.
I have a fun card to share today. I made this a while ago and I am so happy to be able to share it here today. This is for my bible study girls. It is my mission to give each of them a card that has my special prayer for them. This card if for Kim. I am hoping by sharing my mission here I will actually get it done and out to them. My next one is Julie and I am hoping to get her card made and out next week. I would love to hear if you have any special group of women that you meet and pray or study with? Do you do anything special for them? I am always looking for new creative ideas for them.
Okay I just had to try using the fun foam as a stamp. It was interesting. The ink seemed to soad into the foam and it took quite some time to dry on my card, but it worked okay. Here is my card I really like the font on this stamp set everyday blessings. It was from the free set from a few years ago. I added the fun foam on top of the flowers and then added the buttons as well.
I am sure all of you have seen the make it monday challenges on PTI's blog. I am all about trying new things and the chance to win some PTI goodies! This week it was a fun foam challenge. Here is my first card
I was super surprised how easy the fun foam was to cut on the big shot. I found some fun foam that had adhesive backing on it, so it was easy to put the card together. It is a 3.5 X 3.5 square.
I had to share a card tonight because I am so excited. I just got another card accepted by Papercrafts Magazine. Isn't that fabulous! I used shimmer paint on this beauty. I am super tired and have a class all day tomorrow, so I am going to let you go.
