So for this card I had this Greeting Farm stamp girl laying around.  I was trying coloring using prisma coloring pencils, when I didn’t have copics.  I think it my coloring turned out great, if I say so myself.  So I colored her but didn’t put her on any card.  So when I got the Fashionable Friends set, I pulled her out and here ya have it!!  LOVE IT!!!

I just layered some pink and red glitter paper then embossed the pink top layer and scalloped the bottom of each layer.  The Simply fabulous! sentiment went perfect with it!!

Hope you like!

I had a few hours to myself to day and started to make a couple of cards for this stamp set. 

Today is your day! card:  I wanted something simple to show off this sentiment. I love it!  I used some Sassafras flowers on an embossed SU soft suede cardstock and added a knot to the corner , sprinkled some tiny pearls and there ya have it!  LOVE IT!! 008 (480x640)

Life is grand card:  I used some Kaisercraft 6x6 up up and away cardstock and rub-on’s but a knot ribbon and finished it off with Life is grand sentiment and LOVE IT!!

Simply Sunday Penned Challenge Video…

Ok, I so late in getting this video edited.  I was having issues with my Editing software. It just didn’t want me to make this video!  I was determined to get it to work, but in the end I didn’t.  I ended up having to use my Video Camera’s software which does not let me add stuff to it.  SO here is my video!

Splashtastic Summer

Howdy!!   I finally created 2 cards using Splashtastic Summer stamp set by K. Andrew Design from Getting Cricky. OMGosh.. do I love them!! they are soo cute!!  ADORE!

The 1st card I created, I used some SU A2 baby blue card stock that came in my “grab bag” I got a few months ago, I am trying to use up all that stuff I got to make it worth it. The stripe layer, is from an old DCWV Glitter Mat Stack I’ve had in my paper hoarding stash.  The background I created using some flip flop stamps of a small stamp set from MFT Hit the beach stamp set that I forgot I had.  I used several Tim Holtz distressing inks to create my own background and then colored in a beach ball with SU markers.  I also finally used my Irock.  I really like the way it turned out.   Then for the sentiment I used,  Splahstastic Summer stamp sentiment “ DON’T FLIP OUT”  LOL  I love it. 

Fernando & I been kind of grumpy at each other. Two teacher on vacation is kind of getting to us. UGH. I love him but goodness he needs to get away for a while! LOL

I really liked the way it turned out.. very Summery!

 simplysunday amazing you 003 (480x640)

My 2nd card, I created a video on how I made it.  I got my inspiration from VICKY P from LILY PAD Cards, I just love to watch her YOUTUBE videos of her technique she uses. YOu need to go see her videos.. omgosh awesome!!  I started to watch her videos when she was under her old youtube channel which you can see here.

Here’s my card.. then following is my youtube vid.  The sentiment is also from Splashtastic Summer stamp set from K. Andrew!  You definitely need to go buy her stamps. LOVE THEM!  simplysunday amazing you 005 (480x640)

I am entering the SUNNY Thoughts card for the CELEBRATE the Occasion Challenge #19: Celebrating Summer (must have a sun).

Thankful Thursday Challenge @ Crazy about Cricut..

This is my 1st time entering in Crazy about Cricut Challenges.. Their challenge was to create a project for father’s day.   Well I created this t-shirt for my brother in law.    I used my Yudu for the 1st time.. Well, let me correct myself, I used Fernando’s Yudu for the 1st time.  Guess what?? I did a better job then he did when he tried to screen a shirt! HAHAHA!  Why do you say my came out better?? Because I actually listened to the directions on the Youtube videos!  HA  typical man, who never listens to directions! 

Well, enough of me bragging!  Here is my Father’s Day project.  Sorry the picture is kind of  fuzzy, took the photo with my back up 90’s cell phone! heeh not really it’s the early 2000’s.  LOL .. It doesn’t even had android Sad smile . I can only text! ugh tragic!

This week I have been showcasing Kristal's “FREEDOM ISN’T FREE” set and been creating lots of cards! If you would like to see, just scroll down to the earlier post.

For today, I created 2 more cards. This 1st card I used Versamark ink and stamped the sentiment all over the card to create a background image on to white cardstock. Then I heat embossed it using white embossing powered and then put the heat gun to it. Once all dried, I used Colorbox “warm Red” chalk ink and blended it onto the white cardstock using foam on the blending tool. I then used white twine to wrap all around and topped it off with a red button!

bloghop1

My 2nd card I created using a technique I have seen Vicky P from LILY PAD CARD do by using Distressing Ink to make background images, landscape scenes and flowers. I’m liking getting INKY! I tried to make it look like the sun was setting and ya know that pretty purply/orange sky you get? Well I tried to create that. I think it turned on pretty cool! THen of course I used the perfect sentiment from “FREEDOM ISN’T FREE” set.

Well Kristal made this stamps set as sort of a lunch box stamps set to put notes into lunch boxes.. NOw this will make it easier for me to go back to those “GOOD OLE Day’s Fernando is missing! “  LOL he’s such a baby! LOL

Day 3 of 4 now!! Yep 4 stamp sets now!! yay!

Today’s set is called  Freedom isn’t Free! I so love this set!  I have a brother who a Chief in the Navy and most of my relatives are in the armed forces so Of course I love this stamp set! I can’t wait till my set comes in!!  

freedomisn'tfreeblogpreview

Isn’t it awesome???  OMGOSH I love it!!  Love that DOG TAG! 

Here is a bit of what Kristal has to say about this stamp set and the charity it will benefit… (excerpt from her blog)

Freedom Isn't Free to benefit Intrepid Fallen Heroes $14.99

“Intrepid Fallen Heroes is a non-profit organization that provides rehabilitative services to US military members who are severely disfigured from combat. (Imagine half a face blown off, or the loss of both legs). This charity is VERY dear to my heart, because there is nothing like being 20 years old, engaged, and coming home so disfigured you can't serve in the military anymore, and you don't even look like the person you were when you left. This is the price many of our service members make to keep us free. My hubby is an active duty military member, and I pray for his protection every time he is sent overseas; and I can't imagine what it would be like to fight and serve for my country and be horribly disfigured upon return, but I can imagine how amazing it would be to know there is help for you--this is my small way of helping those men and women who give up their lives so I can sleep peacefully at night.”

Her four stamp sets are: Fabulous Friends which $1.00 will go to Cancer Angels, Positive Thoughts which $1.00 will to to Storefront Children's Shelter , Freedom Isn't Free which 1.00 will go to Fallen Heroes, Food For Thought which $1.00 will go to benefit Storefont Shelter for Homeless Children.

Day 2 Stamp Release : Positive Thoughts

This is Day 2 of Kristal’s Stamp release.  Today we are showing off Positive Thoughts!!

positivethoughtsblogpreview

This stamp will benefite Storefront Children’s Shelter.. 

Excerpt from Kristal’s BLOG:

“Storefront Shelter is my signature charity in which homeless children are found, rescued, and reunited with their parents if possible. If not, they are found new homes and are given intervention so they do not return to the streets. There are youth and children living on the streets; it's been reported that parents will drop their child off downtown, to abandon them. The children have no idea where they are, and no idea how to return home. Children also flee from abusive environments, and live in the streets. Just thinking about if something happened to me, and my children were placed in an abusive children's home, and my children ran away..if they were living on the streets. I can't imagine what it would be like to be a young child on the streets, but I can imagine a way to help them, and this is my way.”

Her three stamp sets are: Fabulous Friends which $1.00 will go to Cancer Angels, Positive Thoughts which $1.00 will to to Storefront Children's Shelter and Freedom Isn't Free which 1.00 will go to Fallen Heroes.

Kristal will have 3 stamps sets coming out by MID JUNE and Pre Order can be done starting on the 31st of May, please <<Click here>> to order and get full details.
