…in a Pear Tree

Happy Monday!! The Design team has had a great break but it is now time to get back to some sketchy fun. We have a new sketch today at From the Heart Stamps and it is a fun, simple one. Hahaha – the tWist today is to use watercolor and I accidentally missed it. I have done mostly watercolor lately and today when the tWist calls for it, I didn’t do it.Sketch114I have gotten into Christmas this July and decided to do another card with that theme – I went with a simple white background, but as I am want to do, I embossed it with a Days of Christmas embossing folder for some texture. I thought that would be a good fit since the pear tree is the first day of Christmas…

I used Washi tape for my sketch elements. My image is called: Pear and Whimsical Christmas Trees.

Happy Saturday! Hope all is well in your corner of the world! It is H-O-T hot here in Georgia today – I have gotten my chores done and am ready to PLAY!

I have long been a fan of Little Miss Muffet Stamps but haven’t really played with them much in a while. I thought  would join in on Challenge #116 – Anything Goes and today’s card uses a rubber stamp called Rusty – He’s adorable and a great addition to my fairly small stash of boy cards…

Happy National Ice Cream Day!

7-scoop-ice-cream-cone

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by over 90 percent of the nation’s population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

Today is that day so…

HAPPY NATIONAL ICE CREAM DAY!

In honor of this absolutely F-U-N day, I decided to create a fun card using Hambo Stamp’s Ice Cream Man and a shaker element. Now if I can just put it down and stop shaking it…

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas in July – Day 7

What a fun week this has been at the Bugaboo Christmas in July Challenges – the inspiration has been fantastic and the challenges have been great. Today’s challenge was to use the Friday Freebie and to “pick a present”. The freebie wasn’t working but he is pretty cute so I got him (50% off everything this month made it a pretty good deal).

CIJPAPImageI chose the second to last present and went with Image, Twine, and Charm. Image Rudolph – Rudolph. I decided that since I needed a charm for my challenge, I would make a Christmas light bulb to hang from my twine bow – you know…Rudolph had a very shiny nose…”like a light bulb” (haha). I think I love it!Bugaboo Rudolph copyRecipe:

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas in July – Day 6

Another day and another challenge – Day 6 of the Bugaboo Christmas in July Challenges is a photo challenge. It is also Oldie but Goodie Thursday – I hope my image selection is old enough…Photo

My image is called snowman star. I thought that the star and snowman would be a good take on the photo. I had to trim off the star so it wouldn’t cover my shaker.

Bugaboo Stamps Christmas in July – Day 3

Day 3 of the Christmas in July Challenges is a photo/color challenge.

ColorIt was a little strange creating a Christmas card in these colors, but I thought that the Partridge in a Pear Tree from the 12 Days of Christmas Set may offer the opportunity to bring in these colors and have a fun card. Now, I am still not sure that it Christmas-y but I’ll leave it on my desk top and see if it grows on me :)

I pulled out Copics to color my image [B0000,B00, B01, B02, B04, B05, B06, B39, YG00, YG01, YG03, YG05, YG07, YG09, G05, G09, G16, YR21, YR23, E44, E47, E49], For all my die cutting, I used my new Stitched Rectangle and Stitched Square Dies from Simon Says Stamps – I am seriously going to love these! A little fun foam mounted on white card from Papertrey Ink and that’s all there is to this one.

Thanks for stopping by!
