Dino Party Card


I just couldn't help myself, these dinos had to party!  *LOL*

I made this card to fit into a business size envelope.  It measures 3 and 1/2 by 8 and 1/2 when folded.

All the dinos come from the Stampendous set called Prehistoric Party.  I stamped them all and then colored them in using my Copics.  For finishing touches I added some Wink of Stella glitter brush and some Crystal Effects.  All the party hats are shiny along with the balloons.

I used a couple strips of patterned paper along the top and bottom of the card for more fun color and the sentiment.  I believe this paper was from DCWV.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you enjoyed today's fun card :)

Patterned Turkey Card

Here's a simple card featuring some fun patterns on an adorable turkey :) 

It's a standard A2 sized card using kraft card stock.  I rounded 2 of the corners using my Corner Chomper.

The stamped sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Harvest Season.  I stamped it using Latte Chalk Ink by Hero Arts.  The little brads came from Michael's - I'm not sure of the brand.

The ribbon is from Stampin' Up in Tangerine Tango - I got it free during the last Sale-a-bration sale.

Now for the best part, the turkey!  He's a Silhouette image.  The patterned papers I used for his feathers come from the Bo Bunny Garden Girl 6 by 6 pad.  I really wantdd to make the feathers unique and fun, but I made sure to only use one really "out there" pattern and the others are more simple patterns in more traditional colors.  Of course the little googly eyes just finish the effect.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoy this quick and fun card!  I'll try and do something fancier soon, but boy have I ever been busy.

Chalk Talk For You Card

The inking technique for the main panel on this card was a total blast!  I think it really enhances the embossing and softens the background a bit.  I purposely got ink in some of the lower parts of the card to give it a different look, and also so that I couldn't consider it a "mistake" when the ink pad slipped a bit.

For the full directions for this card and the ability to save a PDF of them for easy reference please visit this page on my new site!  http://stampinonstuff.com/chalk-talk-card/

I'll be posting at the new blog every day this week to really kick it off :)  Please consider following and subscribing over there.  I'll post the cards here to help catch more of my readers, but soon I'll stop doing that and keep these 2 blogs separate - so sign up over there now or you'll miss out.

Have a fabulous and very crafty day!

My Latest Projects - And My New Blog Announcement!

Click to see this project.
 Here's some of the awesome things I've been making lately.  I also have an announcement to make.  The reason I haven't been posting over here is that I was working hard to create a new website.  Why you ask?  I'm now a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and wanted a fancy new site to share all my Stampin' Up! creations.

Click to see this project.I'm using an entirely different platform to build that blog on so it's been taking me forever to learn the ropes.  I wanted everything to look nice and be easy to navigate before I announced the new site to all my fantastic readers and friends here.  I'm happy to report I love it now and I think the layout and navigation are working well.

I've been filming videos again!  Really nice ones with decent lighting and a new HD camcorder.  A step up from the videos I used to do.  I think you'll really enjoy them.  I'm also offering simple PDF downloads on my site with the instructions so you can save the instructions to your computer easily.  I'm also writing out directions the good old fashioned way.

Click to see this project.Am I giving up this blog completely?  No, I don't intend to.  However, the new site will be my primary focus from now on.  Starting next week on Monday September 8th I will be blogging there daily.

Sorry I've been out of touch with everyone!  I set up a new workroom, shopped for a new camera, had my husband build a custom video space, etc.  It's been a whole heck of a lot of planning, research, learning new things, and work getting to this point.  I will be trying to catch up with all my fab friends this week and show some love on your fantastic blogs :)

I would love it if you'd go check out my new site!  There are already a few projects and videos up.  All the photos you see in this post are of projects already posted to the new site.  I also have a whole page for new stampers, or stampers that may be having trouble that covers all the basics for you in videos.

I'd love it if you'd follow, sign up for my newsletter, etc.  I promise I'll have lots of great content coming and I think you'll enjoy the projects.

A Unicorn Card


My daughter is totally obsessed with ponies at the moment.  Not real ponies, but the "My Little" variety.  When I saw this image in the Silhouette store I just knew it would make a perfect little something for her.

The layers were a real pain, but I think the final result is pretty adorable.  I used some Stickles in Yellow and Cotton Candy for some added fun.

The sequins are just cheapies from the craft store.  I attached them with Glue Dots so no adhesive oozes out of the little holes.

I know I've been MIA, but it's because I've been working on something new and very exciting.  I'll be announcing it soon :)  You're going to love it.

Thanks so much for visiting.  I'll be preparing to make my announcement shortly.

*Hugs to all my fabulous crafty peeps*
