Card of the day 6/29/10

Here are the fun project/projects that we made at he workshop on Saturday. A Card folio from a cardstock circle, two envies and two cards.
For the cards we used the new FOTM Violets that is now available in the online store. Yea!
Two envelopes we created using our new Utlimate Crafters Companion. Boy did it make these super quick and easy!
We used the new BoBunny pattern cardstock collection Peacock Lane.
Here it is all put together.
On a sorrier note, I told you about our sick cat Jackie and we are having to put her down today as she has gotten worse and is paralyzed on one side now. She is not having any fun anymore down here on earth but know that God will take good care of her upstairs. I am a bit of a mess over it so if you think of it please say a little prayer for me and my family.

Card of the day 6/24/10

Here is another little number using the soon to be released set FOTM Violet. I created my own background on the card using two different colors of Adirondack ink pads: Wild Plum and Purple Twilight. I like how they look together.

The Ultimate Crafters Companions came in today, Yea! I will get them added to the store soon.

Card of the day 6/22/10

I am back from my trip to WI and a good time was had by all! But as always, it is good to be home. :) Unfortunately they had to put my sweet sheltie Sierra down while we were gone and then the night we got home our cat Jackie got terribly sick and had a couple seizures. She is having a hospital stay at the Vet's for a couple days and we are hoping that she starts eating soon so she can come home. Our animals (I am sure like yours) become some big parts of our lives and share such love with us, and it is so hard to see them sick.

But onto The Card of the Day. It is a Sneak Peek for you using a set that will be available on Saturday. It is the Flower Of The Month design my Brooke Smith called Violets. I think it is so pretty! Hope you all like it too.

Card of the day 6/8/10

Yesterday I showed you a little project that my friend Mimi made, and today's is my version. Mimi and I used different papers and inks and they both have a totally different feel, but are both the same in how stinkin cute they are. Ha! Mimi and I really had fun making these and if you come to the next free stamp club workshop June 26th you can make one too! I used some fabo GCD Studio's double sided pattern papers and the stamp sets "Butterfly Rounders" and flower of the month "Queen Anne's Lace" the little mini flower.
Here is the folio

and here is the card and handmade envie.
This is the last card of the day post until June 21st. My 3 boys and I are going to Wisconsin to visit my Uncle in Cambridge and then to Camp Hope at Lake Helen near Wausaukee. My brother Jonnie (along with other youth pastors and counselors) are having a camp for teenagers and my eldest son will attend camp, and I am going to help out my sister in-law Linda in the kitchen and the twins are going to do twin things and hopefully not get into too much trouble. Ha! Husband gets to hold down the fort here and at the Cafe and take care of all our animals. I will miss you all, but I know will come back inspired.
See ya all later alligators!

Card of the day 6/7/1- by Mimi

Remember I told ya that I was going to try and get together with a friend to stamp with this weekend? Well my friend Mimi was able to come over and play and here is a cute project that she made. It is a card folio (holder) made to hold 3x3 cards and envelopes. We did not have 3x3 envies on hand so we made our own.

The stamps Mimi used were Butterfly Rounders and Birthday Pixie. She colored the image in using Copic markers and added lots of sparkle with glitter pens. Too cute! I will post mine tomorrow.
Here is the card Mimi made to go inside and she used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and glitter pen. Simple but cute!
The boys and I are getting ready for our trip to WI later this week... lot's of laundry. Ugh! Hope you have a great week everyone!

Card of the day 6/4/10

Today's card of the day was made with artist Brooke Smith's FOTM Dogwood. It is pretty hard to see the details of the card but the solid image was stamped using Wheat VersaMagic ink and then I stamped the lined image in black over it. I created my own background paper on the white card front and glittered all the white parts, so it is a very glittery and sophisticated card using the neutrals and black and white.

This could be a birthday card, sympathy card, or just an all occasion card. Hope you all get to stamp this weekend... I am hoping to get together with a friend to do just that tomorrow.
Just a "heads up" by 3 boys and are going to be traveling from the 9th - 19th so no orders will be fulfilled, and there will be no card of the day until we return.

Card of the Day 6/3/10

I wasn't slacking with the Card Of the Day yesterday, I actually had this card made ahead of time, but unfortunatly I caught the stomach flu bug that my 3 boys all had last week and boy did it hit me hard... still recovering actually.

This is a super simple card, but really fun to make!

Card of the day 6/1/10

Hey everyone! Did you all have a good holiday weekend? The weather was a bit rainy here in our part of GA but we had a good time hanging out and even caught Iron Man 2, which was great. We also had a 24 hour flu bug run through all 3 boys, but they all survived and are happy it is gone!

Here are a couple cards I made this morning use the sets "Musical Quotes" (saying and bird singing), and "Swirly Note Borders". These two cards are the same except for the pattern papers which is BasicGrey "Sugar Rush" 6x6 paper pad. I added a black paper flower with rhinestone middles in 3 colors for some flash. This was a fast and easy card with no coloring.

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
