redpickupsig

I made this card using the Loads of Love SU! stamp set – I stamped the truck and the sentiment on watercolor paper using a Versafine Black inkpad and then embossed with clear embossing powder!!

I fussy cut the tag and the truck! I colored the truck in using Zig markers010 Black, 090 Grey and 022 Carmine Red and a Winsor & Newton Cotman round 2 brush

Using Backdrop Builders from Paper Smooches I cut the road and the grass from scraps and layered them with the blue cloud paper – using a Circle die from My Favorite Things I cut the layered pieces into a circle!

The yellow paper is from my scraps and I used a white signo gel pen to draw stitches around the paper and I used a Corner Chomper on the bottom right corner!! Tag and truck were added with foam squares and the tag was tied with black twine!

The DoubleClick Skittles colors I used on this are: Lemon and Pebble Glitter

I am still on my break – enjoy the rest of September!!!

Stepping Away for 10 Days

Hello there, to ALL you awesome people!!!

Thank you for your friendship and support!!

I have had some health issues lately and I have been more stressed than I needed to be!! I am stepping away from the computer for the next 10 days – until September 30th!!

I am going to be severely limiting my computer time – SO except for already written and scheduled Design Team posts I will not be posting for the next while – I also WILL NOT be commenting on your blogs, please don’t take it personally –  the time I do spend on screen will be limited to just checking emails!!

I am excited for when I return though, because —

with the month of October comes my 4 YEAR BLOGAVERSARY!!

For-Blogsig

So I will be resting up and preparing for that !!

I have twice weekly giveaways planned (that makes 8) and 3 Grand Prizes for the whole month’s activities!!

I will be posting on September 29th all the details that you will need to have to participate and celebrate this exciting achievement with me!! One thing that I would love is if you help spread the word and let people know about this – getting to 100 followers would be a SUPER BIG DREAM COME TRUE for me!!! Thanks!!

One of the things that I will be focusing on besides getting prepared for the Blogaversary celebration is catching up on sending out Happy Mail – so I have that to look forward to, as well!!

Please know that I cherish all the friendships I have with you and that when I return I hope to be BETTER than ever!! Thanks for your understanding!!!

Great BIG hugs to you & Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!!

R is for Reindeer

I was able to play for a little while this morning and I made this:

risforreindeersig

I used both sides of the same piece of Doodlebug Design paper from Home for the Holidays Collection! I used Ladybug Swiss Dot Washi Tape also from Doodlebug!! I die cut a circle of watercolor paper and stamped the reindeer from the Santa’s Gifts Stampin’ Up! set on it using a Versafine Black inkpad and then embossed it with clear embossing powder!!

I colored the reindeer ink by smooshing my ink pads so that ink got on the lid and then I picked up the ink with a wet paintbrush!! Becoming my favorite way to watercolor!!

Linking up to the following challenges:

Butterfly Birthday

Well, here I am, back with my third creation for today!! I have had to do things in spurts because of the lingering of this migraine!! I feel like the end is near, though!! Hopefully a good night’s sleep will find me ready for a new, feeling good day!!

As I mentioned in my last post the last two cards I made were CAS and One-Layer!!

My last and third card of the day turned out like this:

bdaybutterflysig

First thing I did on this card was use a diagonally striped stencil from Simon Says Stamp – I used Taken With Teal and Tempting Turquoise SU! inks and blended them to create the lines behind my butterfly!! The Butterfly itself was a gift from a crafty friend named Cheryl from Paper Panacea – I colored it all over with a Wink of Stella clear pen and glued it to my card with Ranger Multi Medium Matte! Added some sequins and a small Happy Birthday!!

This card is going to be linked up to these challenges:

With Love – A Heart-y Card

I’m back to share the second card I made today!! The next two were pretty simple one-layer cards with either masking or stenciling!! They made up pretty fast and easy!!

My second card looks like this:

purpleheartsig

This card features the Stampin’ Up! set called Happy Hearts and a couple of mini heart stamps that I do not remember where I got them from – I have had them for AGES!!! I used 2 purple inkpads and brush markers for this card -Lovely Lilac and Lavender Lace!! Also used a scrap of vellum for my sentiment and added Doodlebug Design sequins to jazz it up a bit but still keep it a flat, mailable card!! Masking was involved!! =]

I am happy that I can link this card up to these challenges:

Falling into Autumn

So for a little while today I was able to chill out in my craft room and create a bit!! I made three cards!!

Here is the first card I made:

mojoleafsig

To make this card I used a SU! set called Fantastic Foliage – the ink colors I used are Pumpkin Pie (orange), and Night of Navy (dark blue). The plaid paper is from my scrap box and the colors of cardstock are Night Of Navy, and Bordering Blue (light blue) and the card base and rounded square are kraft!! I used a Corner Chomper with the 1/4″ side to round the corners of my layers!

I am linking this card up to the following challenges:

Well, I am going to go back to resting – my head is doing better but I have to keep the meds up!!

Thanks for all your sweet get well wishes!!

I truly appreciate EACH & EVERY one of you!!!

Have a BEAUTIFUL Fall day!!

Thanks So Much

Hello, it feels like forever since I have been on here –

I have been plagued by the most painful and persistent migraine!!!

It finally subsided for awhile this afternoon so I made a card!!!

A Thanks SO much card:

thankssomuchfallsig

Please click on the picture to see it in High Definition!!!

This card was my first attempt at NO-LINE WATERCOLORING!!

I stamped Thanks from the Paper Smooches Chit Chat set in Creamy Caramel ink that had been stamped off first!! I stamped on watercolor paper and then picked up ink from Really Rust, Old Olive, and More Mustard inkpads with a paintbrush and water! The Scalloped Frame is also from Paper Smooches and I cut it out of Really Rust paper – the plaid paper was from my stash! The words So much (also from Chit Chat set) were stamped with Really Rust ink directly onto the plaid paper! I die cut the maple leaves out with the Seasonal Tree die – also from Paper Smooches! Once they were cut out I painted on them the same 3 colors I used for the letters in Thanks!!

I am very happy to be linking this card up to these challenges:
