Less is more Challenge

Happy Sunday friends. I wanted to post another challenge card before I went to bed tonight. I think I am going to create  plenty more of this card for a craft fair that I am doing in November. Simple but oh so cute!!
 Here is an easy card that I created for the challenge at Less is more The challenge was to be 1 layer and 2 of something. These little guys are so cute with their googley eyes and bling red buttons. I also heat embossed them with "primary bark" WOW embossing powder. I sporadically added the red and green sequins. The stamp set I used is scentsational seasons by Stampin Up!  I hope you enjoy what I have created, Don't forget to let me know that you were here!! Have a great Monday everyone!!
Repost, Here is one that I completed that is only 1 layer. Although I did heat emboss the gingerbread men.

I'm checkin in with a challenge

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all. I completed this challenge card from Mojo Monday on Tuesday but this is the first chance I have had to load it up and share it with you all. I love the colors on the card. I used a paper pad from Simple Stories, "Vintage Bliss" The colors are really summery(even though we are at the end of summer) I wanted to get one last summer card in! The "hi" is a wood embellishment that I colored using magicals from Lindy's stamp gang. Let me tell you, they are so sparkly and pigmented. I took a little scoop out of the little pot and added a drop or 2 of water and wow, So pretty! I then went over the piece with paper glaze. I added a little silver butterfly charm over to the right and attached it with the pink twine. I hope you enjoy my creation and hopefully, I will be back soon!!

Another Monday down...

Hello there everyone! Well, here it is, almost August. Please let time slow down just a bit. 
We have had the most mild summer here in Nor Cal. I mean, the next few days we are supposed to get 100° days but we really haven't had too many of those this summer and I am OK with that.
So, onto my challenge card. I played along with the sketch over at Mojo Monday and it was supposed to be
tall and skinny so this is my tall and skinny 3 1/2 X 9 1/4 creation. 
The paper I used is from Prima's Princess Collection.  The sentiment of from A Stampin Up! stamp set called Whimsical words. The flowers I punched out with one of my flower punches and I added some stickles around both of the flowers. I put this one together rather quickly and I am really happy with how it turned out. Go on over to Mojo Monday and check out all the other great creations that some really talented ladies came up with. Thanks for looking and don't forget to let me know that you were here. Have a wonderful week!!

Mojo Monday #353- Yayyyyyy!

Hello Friends, Today I have a challenge card for you that I created for "Mojo Monday"
I haven't played along in any sketches lately so it's time for me to pick up where I left off. Mojo Monday is one of my fave sketch challenge sites. 
So, for the details, I used an ivory for my base and also used Garden Green and pretty in pink card stocks from Stampin Up! The DP I used is from a 6X6 stack called "Anthologie" by We R Memory keepers. I added an antique brad and some twill trim and at the bottom is some green ball trim from my stash. I used my oval  nesties and stamped "Just a note to say Hello and i heat embossed that in green. I then inked the edge of that oval piece.

There you have it, What do you think? 

Well, That's all for me now. I will be back real soon to share some more of my creations!

Whew, It's been a while

Hello Friends, I have been gone for a long time now and I think it's time for me to get it in gear and share what I have been up to the last couple of months. Well, first things first, I am on summer break right now, Woo Hoo!!!!! Oh, did I think that out loud? LOL! Well, I was very ready for summer break. So, on top of being on summer break, I did get a part time summer job, I am a cashier at (drum roll please.....)  Hobby Lobby. Concord, Calif. finally got a Hobby Lobby. It's a fun place to work and we are closed on Sundays so I wont miss the swap meet that my husband and I go to every week, yayyyyyy!  It is so much fun to see the new paper crafting goodies that come in and even better is getting my crafty,inky little chubby fingers on all of the Clearance goodness! Even though we are a newly opened store, We have the most beautiful clearance wall. I try to refrain but c'mon, it would be so wrong for me to pass up a Tim Holtz banner die for $2.00, Now wouldn't it? 
So, anyways, that is how I have been spending my summer break so far, I actually started working at HL in May so I was really really part time but now that break is here I am working not too shabby hrs. 3 days a week 8-5.
So, onto my crafting, I have a couple of swaps that I have been working on. One was a 4th. of July Shabby Chic #8 tag. 
This is the tag that I made for a swap I hosted on "Swap-Bot"  I had fun working on this one.Not only was I hosting the swap but my really sweet friend Shawnee was my partner.
 For the string of flat back pearls that are on there in red,white & Blue, I actually didn't have any blue ones so I threw some white ones in a zip lock baggie and squirted some Adirondack alcohol ink in the color "sail boat blue" and let it sit for a while and Voila, red,white & "Blue" flat back pearls. 
The flags that I used are ones that I got at HL. They are actually made for cupcakes but they were perfect for what I needed them for. 
As for the scrabble letters, USA, I actually purchased 2 scrabble games at the flea market, 1 for $1.00 and 1 for 75¢ and all I wanted were the letters. Not too shabby for $1.75!  oh how I love the flea market!

Well Friends, That is about all I have for now. I will however be back tomorrow night to share another swap that I am in before I send it off! Have a safe and wonderful Friday night!

Hello Friends, Just wanted to drop a quick line to let you all know that I am still around. I have been super busy and just couldnt find the time to get a post out to you guys. So, I have finished a few projects lately, Just doing some playing around. 
So, this first card is one that I created and really, just playing around. I had purchased a roll of 10 yards of 2mm. bling, Oh how I love Bling. I just wanted to use it on something so on the sentiment is where I chose to place it. It just adds a little bit of something to an otherwise flat card. 
For this next photo, I have been really having some fun creating chunky charms. This is one of my first charms and I really had fun creating it. 

This next creation is a tag that I created for a swap that I was in. Now, I love love love these Prima doll stamps, The possibilities are endless as far as dressing them. If I am ever bored or cant quiet find the creativity in me, then I color and dress a Prima doll. That gets the ball rollin,Funny, isn't it? 

And now for my final creation, I actually went off of a passed sketch from a sketch blog online and I LOVE how this one turned out. I actually used a chip board letter of which I have never used in my cards. I am trying to find new things to use in my "old" stash. Does that make sense? I have SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many supplies and embellishments that I don't even know what I have. Really, Sometimes it is a little overwhelming. I just cant control myself when it come to paper crafting supplies, or beading or mixed media. Oh boy, oh my! ☺
So, those are a few of the things that I have been up to. I have a few more things to share with you all, One being a contest that I won with Tombow while at CHA back in January. So much fun! 
OK, it's off to bed for me but I will return real soon my friends!!
