Card of the day 7/30/10

Sorry this is a day late!... I started it yesterday and the rest of the day vanished somehow. Anyway, you can see I am on a "stamping things in a circle" kick. I know, I am weird but it is fun!

On another note... my eldest son Alec turns 14 today, and he is celebrating it in Honduras while on a missions trip with our church's youth group. I am so proud of him!
And did you ever have a day like I did today? The lens popped out of my prescription reading glasses a few days ago, and I really need them to see while I am coloring my stamp images in... so the twins and I go on a 55 minute drive into the big city (Augusta) and drop them off to go shopping at Wally World, we return about 30 minutes later to pick them up. Well they can't find them anywhere... and after I looked around, I see that they are still at the front desk where the lady forgot about them. (Ugh!) So a different, and very nice employee popped the lens back in and while adjusting it she cracked the lens. (Ugh again!) Oh well, accidents happen but now I have to go back next week to pick them up. Such is life, just happy I didn't forget what I needed at Wally World... nothing worse than going all the way there and forgetting something! Have a great weekend everyone!

Card of the day 7/28/10 by David

My son David (one of the twins) came up with this accordion spinner card yesterday while hanging out with me in the Studio. How clever... I have never made a spinner card incorporated in a speciality folded card. I am going to have to make one of these!
David asked me if this could be the card of the day... absolutely!

Card of the day 7/27/10

Today's card is another one of our new 5 stamp sets "One More Scoop?". I am partial to this image because my husband and I opened a coffee/ice cream shop this past December. This little mouse got into a carton of ice cream and had a grand time!
I am still in my purple phase... are you sick of it yet?
On a personal note, our 13 year old son Alec is on a missions trip to Honduras with our church's youth group. There are about 20 kids and adults on this trip and I am nervous, and really excited for him. They left Sunday and my Husband and I got to talk with him for a few minutes last night which was wonderful.

Card of the day 7/26/10

I had an idea and here is the fruit of my labors. Cute little owls all in a circle... and of course these are not ordinary owls, they are funky!
Here is the inside saying with an even smaller, cute owl!

Card of the day 7/23/10

I have been busy getting ready for the workshop we are having here tomorrow, but this stamp set has been on my table staring at me all day, so I just had to take time to stamp the furball out and make a fun card.

This is one of our new stamp sets "What?" by Blair Lambert and I just love how she captured the cat-a-tude. This set also contains the saying "who needs 9 lives when you look this good" Ha! Don'tcha just love that?

Card/Project of the day 7/22/10

Today's project of the day is another one of those fun corner bookmarks. I used our new set Sky's The Limit from Brooke Smith on this and also some BoBunny pattern cardstock which is double-sided. Double-sided = double the fun!

I also made a matching envelope using the Ultimate Crafters Companion... just because I could. Ha! And it is super cute wit the pattern paper liner on the flap.

This is the 3rd project that we will be making at the workshop on Saturday. I can't wait to see you all there... I mean here!

Card of the day 7/21/10

Here is another card I used the Ultimate Crafters Companion to fold, and then I had fun stamping using our new set from Brooke Smith "Sky's The Limit".
I stamped on the die cute (nestie and cuttlebug) and used the masking technique to mask the clouds and then sponged around them. Lift off the mask and you still have white fluffy clouds!

I also die cut a large scalloped square, and outlined the edges with a fine line black pen. This is a great area to stamp another message or write your personal message.
This card features lots of glitter and crystal rhinestones for some "bling". We will be making this card at the workshop Saturday. We still have room so let me know if you would like to join us.

Card of day 7/20/10

Finally a card of the day to post! This is a tri-fold card I made using the Ultimate Crafters Companion and our new stamp set from Blair Lambert #RSSBLAIR8 Wherever You Go. It was really fun coloring the little hummer with my Copic markers. This is a card we will make at the Stamp Club Workshop this Saturday. Let me know if you would like to join us. Card partially open
Card closed so you can see all the layers and the saying

Card open. You can't see it but there is a white space to write a sentiment if you want, and to sign the card.

4 new stamp sets!

I am so excited!... these 4 new stamp sets by Blair Lambert and Brooke Smith should be here today!!

On another note... the family and I went on an impromptu trip to the mountains this past weekend, thus no card of the day, and had a super time together! We went whitewater rafting in the Smokey Mountains as well as hanging out at the Dollywood Splash Country water park. The weather was perfect and it was great to get away for a little while with just the 5 of us. :) I hope you are all having a good summer too!

Card/project of the day 7/12/10

When Mimi and Elizabeth were over here stamping on Friday we also made this great project that we also found on a box/drawer that can hold cards or whatever you would like. It was really fun to make!

Tomorrow I am going to have a Sneak Peek stamp set for you!!!

Card/project of the day 7/9/10

My friends Mimi and Elizabeth came over today to play in the stamp room with me and this is something we made... altered Frappacino bottles. Aren't they the cutest? They would be even cutier with M&M's in them. :)

Card/project of the day 7/8/10

One more bookmark for you this week... I just couldn't help myself! This one I made using our "Warm Fuzzies" stamp set colored in using Copic markers.

Card/project of the day 7/7/10

I had so much fun making yesterday's corner bookmark that I made another one today! I used that great purple paper from BoBunny again "Peacock Lane" and FOTM stamp Anemone, and the "friends" word comes from the Friendship Quotes stamp set.
I used my Copic markers to color in the flowers; V12 and V15. Those are the only two I used but it came up looking like tree colors. I also used my colorless blender to remove some color on the petals and give it a molted effect... more like nature! Have you made one of these bookmarks yet?

Card/project of the day 7/6/10

Today's project I saw on a cute corner bookmark. It was so cute and easy I just had to make me one, and here it is. You could do this any style and it would make a great little giftie for someone.
I used our new Sweet Of The Month set Ice Pop by Brooke Smith and colored the images in using Copic markers and added a little shine using a Stardust glitter pen.

I hope you try and make one yourself!
