One Big Meaning and Chocolate Chip

Hello Ladies ~ are you ready for my One Big Meaning and Chocolate Chip creation for today.

I managed to get the Apple Crisp for Jess’s birthday made yesterday morning.  I had Remi again as she is still sick.  She will be home again today but I have appointments and a call and then another workshop.  I think Jess is going to stay with her most of the day.  The poor thing has a horrible cough and she is still running a fever.  Not sure what is going on.  It could be just a bad cold.  Hopefully the rest of us will not get it.

Last week I chose the stamp set One Big Meaning and Chocolate Chip for my One Color Wonder creation this week.  I used the stamp set to create a background and then one of the stamps for the sentiment.  Here is the video I created for my card.

Simple Hello Friend

Good Morning Ladies ~ sometimes we just need a Simple Hello Friend card to send to that special friend.

I did not get as much done as I wanted to yesterday.  I got a phone call from daycare that Remi was sick.  I had to pick her up.  She was running a low grade fever.  She came home an proceeded to play and eat like she was starved.  I think she is catching a cold.  The day care has a rule that they have to be fever free for 24 hours.  I will have her again tomorrow as Jess has started her new job and does not have any leave.  I also have a workshop this afternoon so I may be wearing her on my back to get things done.

Today is our challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. This week we have a color challenge.

I opted for another Fall card.  This time I used the Colorful Seasons bundle.  I began by stamping the solid leaf on Whisper White.  I used a second generation stamping for the Always Artichoke since it is a strong color.  Then using the outline stamp I stamped the outline on the solid image using the same color.  The framelit was used to cut them out.  A piece of Night of Navy card stock was embossed with the Brick Wall embossing folder.  I used the Encore gold ink pad and swiped it across the raised area to make the raised lines pop.  The embossed piece as added to a Whisper White card base.  The cut out leaves were added to the card front with glue dots and dimensionals.  I used some select inking for my stamp set and stamped it so the words were stacked.  I punched it out with a 1″ circle punch.  Using the 1 1/4″ circle punch, a So Saffron circle was punched out and the sentiment was mounted onto it.  The sentiment was added to the card front using dimensionals.  Here is my completed creation.

Fall Card

Happy Monday Ladies ~ Here is my Fall Card I made using some color block blending.

Yesterday I helped Jess move some furniture that was given to her.  We made 3 loads but we got everything and put it in her storage unit.  She is planning on beginning to look for a place of her own in December or January.  She has been checking out listings and has found a few things that she likes so she knows there is something out there for her.  It will be interesting to see what she can find when she gets serious.

Our challenge at Make My Monday challenge blog is

                                                              Autumn Colors

I decided to create my own leaves using the color block blending.  I started with a strip of Whisper White.  I had Crush Curry, Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango, and Island Indigo ink pads.  Using my sponges I applied color to the strip in blocks making sure to blend the colors when I added a new one.  I covered the whole strip in this manner alternating the colors so they were mixed.  Here is what my strip looked like when I was finished.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using the above strip I then stamped the outline image from Colorful Seasons stamp set using Versamark ink making sure to vary my leaf placement so my leaves would have some variety.  I then used some Copper embossing powder to heat it.  The matching framelit was used to cut out my leaves.  I took a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and mounted it onto my Island Indigo card base.  Thin strips of the retired Copper colored glimmer paper were cut and added to the card front in a crossing pattern.  My leaves were then added using glue dots and dimensionals.  Here is my completed creation.

10 Minute Creation for Halloween

Hello Stampers ~ want a 10 Minute Creation for Halloween today?  I have one for you!

I had a hard time getting going yesterday but when I did I was productive.  I managed to get my Daisy mini album completed and a quick video about it, my video for Wednesday completed, edited and uploaded my video for today to You Tube, set up a new photo taking system which I tried out for the photo for today, and made my card for Tuesday.  And I completed all this before 5:00 pm.  I also tried out a new mic system and hope it helps block out some of the background noise.  Let me know if it works.

I decided to try a Halloween card for my 10 Minute Creation for Halloween today.  Since I did not have any current stamp sets I decided to try a technique that I have seen quite a bit on the internet.  Everyone is cutting out images from the dsp.  I did the same for my card today.  Here is the video for the card.

 

 

 

And just so you can see the card and check out my new photographing system (make sure you let me know what you think of it), here is my creation.

Dandelion featuring Stampin’ Up Balloon Celebration

Good Morning Everyone ~ today I have a Dandelion featuring Stampin’ Up Balloon Celebration stamp set.

Well the weekend is finally here!  I am looking forward to being able to sleep in a little.  The key will be if the girls let me sleep or if they come get me up when they wake up.  They think they need to ask me for their breakfast rather than get their mother up.  I hope they at least wait a little while before they come get me!

My card today was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.  I have always liked the idea but did not have the set.  When I went to visit my friend in North Carolina she had the set so I played with it a little.  The card uses the stamp that is supposed to be the string for the balloon to make the dandelion tufts.  To make my dandelion I stamped them in a bunch in a circle shape.  Then I stamped the image randomly all over the card layer.  I wanted it to look like they were blowing in the wind.  I used the stem stamp to add my stem that I colored in.  Since this is a whimsical card, I opted for some linen thread and made a multi loop bow.  This layer was added to a So Saffron card base.  Here is my simple creation.
