You're a Classic!

Hey there ladies and Gents! Here is a little card to fit yesterdays Sketch Challenge and todays Ways To challenge...ways to use scraps was the challenge, and I used my scaps on the background as well as on the truck...I love how this little guy turned out!

It's a bit more shabby than I normally do, but this stamp totally called for it! It's a birthday card for my father in law and the stamp is called classic cars by Little paper shop...they are having awesome shipping right now...just a dollar for any order!

Anywho, I stamped the image on the very vanilla paper first and then I stamped it again on the designer paper (old Su! back from 05...it was a scrap!) and then I cut it out, I also used the exacto knife to cut out the windshield and window, and a 1/4 inch hole punch to cut out the headlight! I am not steady enought with the exacto for that! I then colored the lights barely banana and the windows sage shadow and applied Crystal effects to both...they look like glass...too cool! I adhered the designer paper right over the other stamped image, so now you can hardly even tell...I love paper piecing! It makes the whole thing look so awesome!

To finish off this card I used my Chocolate Chip craft pad and destressed all the edges and smudged it up a bit...made it look old! The sentiment was computer generated!

For the 3 strips behind the main image, I stamped the card on sahara sand using sahara sand ink and then sponged all the edges with always artichoke, added some hodge podge and called it a day!

What will you need:
Stamps: Classic Car from little paper shop
Ink: always artichokeclassic, shara sand classic, chocolate chip craft
Paper: Always artichoke, sahara Sand, very vanilla, retired SU! designer papers
Accessories: Hodge podge hardware, crystal effects, small oval punch, markers, sponges, 1/4 inch circle punch

Thanks for looking!

Tuesday's Teacher

Hey all...if you can believe it I had todays project done yesterday...all pictires taken and uploaded and resized all ready to go! So without further adieu, Here is today's Bible verse:

"The Lord is my helper; I will not fear..." Jeremiah 13: 6

This is one of those bible verses that I just can't help coming back to again and again! It always seems that I am worring or nervous about somehting...Will I be a good wife I thought before I got married. Will I be a good mom was my number one fear before I had kids. And now I just seem to worry about the littlest things...I have to trust in the Lord my God...He knows what is in store for me, I know I have to do my part to get whre he wants me, but I don't need to worry about all the little details...Like what my kids will be like in college, are they going to be good kids? You know the oldest is only 4, I have a long way before he gets to college and I should just focus on what we are doing today! The Lord is my helper...all I have to do is ask and he will answer my prayers...might not be in the way I think he should answer it, but he will answer! LOL

"Faux Ric Rac with scallop punch Tutorial"
Supplies: Su! Scallop border punch, 2 strips of paper(one) 1inch thick and (one) 7/8th of an inch thick...Mine are 5 inches long because that is what length I needed for my card!
You will want to start with just punching a scallop border with the new Su! scallop border punch.
This is where the magic begins! Once you have punched one side of the paper, you will want to flip it over and lign up the curve of one scallop with the point of the bottom scallop...so that they are NOT ligned up...am I making any sence? Once you figured out the placement of the paper you will bring it down so that it's flush with the punch and go for it!
I hope that wasn't too confusing!
See the ric rac forming as you move the paper and keep punching?
This is what the ric rac looks like after you have punched it...I tried to make an even smaller piece, but it fell appart...sp pretty much 7/8th of an inch is the smallest paper size you can start with!

And this is the fisnihed project! What do you think? The fold on the front of the card is called a blintze fold and was the Wt challenge yesterday on Splitcoaststampers. Thanks for looking! I hope you can make lots of your own ric rac too! I love love love this puch!
If you would like to order this punch or any other SU! merchandise please feel free to e-mail me at mabieme1999@yahoo.com
What You'll need:
Stamps: Much Apprecuated (no longer available after 8/10/08)
Ink: Stazon Black
Paper: Basic Black, Pretty in pink, Berry Bliss designer paper (no Longer available after 8-10-08)
Accessories: Blasck grosgrain ribbon, paper pierving tool, black Su! Marker.
This card also fit into another Dare to get dirty challenge from last week...Thanks Lindsey for the black and pink color challenge and faux stitching challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!

Another Dirty Challenge!

Here is one more card for the Dirty Dare 08 Challenges...I have had a blast making cards! Although I have combined a lot of challenges, I did make a lot of cards and it was fun working within the parameters of the combined challenges!

For this card I combined several of the challenges! I used Carole's Challenge to make a card using real red, yo yo yellow and Brilliant blue. Then there was Natasha's Challenge to make a card using her sketch and last, but not least, there was Amy's challenge to make a card that measured 3 1/4 by 6 1/2 (I cheated a bit, my card only measures 3 1/4 x6 because I wanted to make a top folding card to fit in the sketch!)
What you'll need:
Stamps: A little birdie told me
Ink: Staz-on Black, Markers in real red, yo yo yellow, brilliant blue and bashful blue
Paper: real red, yo yo yellow, brilliant blue
Accessories: ribbon, paper piercing tool, crystal effects and SU! SAB rub-ons
I don't know if you can tell or not, but there is a line of crystal effects dots under the brillian blue layer...I think it looks pretty neat, and uses the part of Amy's challenge to use somehting clear on my cards!
Thanks for looking!

Featured Stamper a day late...

Here is the card I made for the featured stamper challenge that is posted on Sunday's here. Yesterdays Featured stamper was Artystamper...Gallery. She had a wonderful gallery and I had a whole lot of fun casing this card.

For this card I used river rock as the base and foe the next layer I used real red...folowed by soime designer paper and ribbon. For the little medalion, I used old olive classic ink to stamp the tree branches and then I used craft chocolate chip ink to stamp the pine cone that I then covered iwht clear embossing powder and heat embossed...did the same thing for the berries, but with real red craft ink.

The sentiment I'm a little summed with...I FINALLY got something stamped staight, but it was too high...GRRR I also stamped that with chocolate chip craft ink covered it with clear embossing powder and heat embossed it...the crystal brads finish it off nicely and I think the scallop (made with the scallop border punch) finish things off nicely!

What You'll need:
Stamps: Peaceful wishes, Holidays and wishes
Ink: Chocolate chip and real red chraft ink, old olive classic ink
Paper: Real red, river rock, shimmery white, designer paper
Accessories: scallop border punch, scallop circle punch, ticket corner punch, coluzzle, rhinestone brads, heat tool, wide real red grosgrain ribbon

Thanks for looking! Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS! LOL

Challenged by Roseann, Kittie, Laura, Jen,Lauren, and Taylor

WOW...that's a whole lot of challenges! So I made a couple more cards today and all together these two cards fit into 6 challenges! Good grief thats some major multi tasking! Here is a link for the Dare to get Dirty 08 challenges...if you are not a fan club member at SCS think about joining...lots of cool things to see and some fun playing in the challenges!

This fisrt card covers 4 challenges all on its own...now I'm not sure about the designer paper on the bottom flap...wish I hadn't adhered it until I finished my little scene...but such is life! So this covers Taylors challenge to make a card with a cupcake, Roseanns Challenge to make a flap card..tutorial here. Kitties challenge to make a scene...how do you like my little dinning room table, chairs and the lovely mirror on the back wall? It has a gold frae...used my painty pen! And last but not least, Laura's challenge for Detressing...I sure did use my sponge and distressor!
I even used 4 punches and my coluzzle! Talk about using my tools! For my closure I actually used a little piece of velcro since I don't have any magnest strong enough to hold through several sheets of cardstock and not look bulky!
What you'll need:
Stamps:Mark the date (for sentiment) Sock Monkey (for cupcake)
Ink: stazon timber brown, temting turquoise, basic black marker, pumpkin pie marker, chocolate chip craft pad for sponging
Paper: Purely pomegranate, bali breeze designer paper, pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, shimmery white bella rose designer paper
Accessories: scallop circle punch, painty pen, coluzzle, sponge, circle punches, word window punch
This next card I made for Laurens Monochromatic challenge and for Jen's Sketch challenge...bith were quite fu and the mono chromatic just happened but chance...because I am NO good at Monochromatic! I do like how it turned out though and I especially love the rub-ons on either side of the card...not much Stamping, but still pretty cute! This card measures 5.25 square. Once I got all the paper cut out and placed where I like it, the card itself actually came together pretty quick...I think I figured out that I am pretty much a paper and ribbon girl...I do try to use ore embelishments, but I just love my paper and ribbon!
For the flower based paper, I used the bali breeze designer paper that I cut and the punched with the scallop border punch and then punched each scallop with the 1/16th circle punch. The white cardstock is the shimmery white and thats about it! I stamped my sentiment on the designer paper itself...it was just too pretty and went well with the monochromatic theme!
What you'll need:
Stamps: Mark the date
Ink: Staz-on timber brown
Paper: old olive, certainly celery, shimmery white, bali breeze designer paper
Accessories: Crop-A-Dial (to punch the holes) celery ribbon, western rub-ons, scallop border punch, 1/16th holde punch, 1.25 and 1 3/8 square punches
Okay and last but CERTAINLY NOT least, I got to meet Beverly AKA as Beestamper on SCS...here is her AWESOME blog! She was doing at workshop close to my house so off I went with all three kids in tow to meet her! She is such a nice person and I had a blast meeting her and seeing her wonderful projects!

Pacific Dreams

Don't foeget about the Blog Candy in this Post...good until Monday when I do the drawing!!!

So I didn't hav much time to work on a card today and I wanted to use Pacific Point (one of the new in colors 08) and so here she is! Not too much detail and stuff, but I really like the bling...the adhesive isn't that impossibly bright in real life...you can hardly see it actually, but you know how it is when you're in a hurry!

This card was made for several challenges...cuz you know that's how I roll! It was made for the WT176 Challenge Negative Thoughts. It was also made for a couple Dare to get Dirty 08 challenges. First the Sihlouette Challenge hosted by Joan and also the Stitching challenge Hosted by Julia S

I started with a piece of pacific point cardstock knowing that I really wanted to use this new color...and when I cut it I happen to lay it upon some Sahara sand and I though...hey this isn't so bad! So I went with it. I used that very piece and punched a 3 inch scallop circle out of it and used the negative (or left over) of the punch and stamped the sihlouette image on the inside and went from there. I then stamped the print pattern background stamp (which is only available until Aug 10th!) in Sahara sand on sahara sand...tied the ribbon, stamped the sentiment and did some sewing! And there you have it...a simple, cute and blingy card! Ohhh I also sponged the inside of the scallop circle as well as all the way arount he outside!

What you will need:
Stamps: Happy Harmony, print pattern
Paper: Pacific Point, sahara sand
Ink: Pacific Pount, Sahara sand, stazon Timber Brown
Accessories: Bling by Heidi swapp, Wide Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon (su!), Linnen thread, paper piercer, 3inch scallop circle punch

Thanks for stopping by!
I'm working on a journal with Taylors challenge to use a cupcake...maybe tomorrow!

Happy Stampin'

P.S. Don't forget about the Blog Candy Here...there are only a few more days to get in on the action!

5 Dirty Challenges 2 Cards!

So yesterday I didn't get any stamp time and now I'm playing catch up on the Dirty Dare Challenges. The first one actually also incorporated a challenge from JullieHrr on Tuesday to make a one layer card! I really do like one layer cards, they are fun to make and super cute...not to mention easy on the wallet! LOL

So for this card I have 3 challenges covored. JullieHRR for one layer, Lauren's challenge for Monochromatic cards, and Jenn Balcers Challenge, an inspiration challenge, I was inspired by the lush bow on that yummy looking cake, so I added a lush satin bow to my card!

If you notice near the top, I thought her clevage was a bit too low, so I made her wear a little lacy camie under her dress! I used the scallop punch and a 1/16th hole punch to create that!

I started off by sketching out a template on half a sheet of scrap paper and then cut it out of shimmery white cardstock (this is a full sheet folded in half), I then added the regal rose sponging and then the rose red sponging all around. The final step of stamping was to add the baroque motif stamp set stamped in purely pomegranate and the flower buds in regal rose.

Last, but certainly not leasy, I added the ribbon and these lush half pearls to make it look even more elegant. The ribbon turned out just like I had envisioned, but then I added the center pearl with too much adhesive (note to self, next time DON'T use pop up glue dots!) Maybe I can add some glitter to mask the huge blob of glue! All in all I'm pleased with how it turned out...I don't know who I'll be giving it to, but I hope they like it...whoever they are!

What You'll Need

Stamps: Baroque motifs

Paper: shimmery white cardstock

Ink: Regal rose, rose red, purely pomegranate

Accessories:ribbon, pearls (pretties kit) , scallop border punchsatin ribbon, 1/16th hole punch, sponges

This card was made for 2 challenges. Holly's Sketch challenge and Sharon's Stamp simply challenge. For this card it was mostly a paper cutting session and the card was done in a flash...I love how it turned out and I think the little birdie looks cute in that print!

What you'll need:

Stamps: A little birdie told me

Ink: Staz-on timber brown, really rust, chocolate chip

Paper: Chocolate Chip cardstock (su!) certainly Celery cardstcock (su!) really rust cardstock (su!) designer paper by BoBunny

Accessories: ribbon scallop border punch, sponge, 1/16th hole punch

Thanks for stopping by!

Tuesday's Teacher

Hello there,
I told ya I would be back after bed time! Thanks for comming back to see what I'm up to today! Here is todays Bible verse!

"Let those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You." Psalm 40:16

Let me just start by sayin that no one cares for a moody, sad, always down in the dumps Christian! Now that I got it out of the way...don't be mad at me! I say that it's okay to be sad, it's okay to complain from time to time and it's even okay ro cry and ask for prayer...but are you one of those people that just rains on everyone elses parade? You know the type...weather you go to church or not, weather you are a Christian or not, there are people out there that can not seem to be happy no matter what! Sure they just won the lotto, "but now I have all these taxes to pay" wahhh wahhh wahhh.

I just want to say that you really should be happy no matter what comes your way! The Lord wants us to thank Him for he good and the bad times we are going through. He has allowed us to go through those bads times not only to see how we persevere through them, but also to see if we can handle bigger and better things in out lives...I was just recently watching "Where the Red Fern Grows" with my son and the boy really wanted hunting dogs, he told his grampa that he had been praying for months for these dogs but he didn't think God wanted him to have them...then the grampa told the boy that maybe God just wanted the boy to show Him that he really wanted the dogs and maybe meet him half way! So the boy worked hard and earned enough money to get the dogs...God didn't not want the boy to have the dogs...just like God doesn't want you to have good things, sometimes you just have to work a little harder for the things you want and be HAPPY along the way!

So go out and show everyone you come in contact with the Love, Grace, Mercy and Kindness of God by always having a cheerful heart...like I said there are times when you should cry, be sad, upset, and share it with others because botling up those feelings, is after all unhealthy, just don't make it an everyday occurence!
Open Card Front Tutorial

Supplies Needed:
Stamps: (here Carte Postale and hugs and wishes)
Ink (here River rock, soft sky, stazon Timber brown)
-1/2 sheet of cardstock (here soft sky)
-4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of cardstock (here river rock)
-4x 51/4 piece of designer paper (here soft sky designer series)
Cutting system (here coluzzle)
Accessories (here ribbon, 1/4 inch punch, scor-pal, ATG adhesive, piercing tool, Pretties Kit *pearls*)
You will want to start by scoring your half shhet of soft sky cardstock in hald and then adhering the river rock on top of the soft sky.

The next step is to use your coluzzle cutting system and cut out an oval...I used the 5th one from the center and cut through both layers (tip: hold the cutting pen at a 90 degree andgle from the paper you are cutting)

Once you clip the little tabs, your card should look like this!

The final step with the coluzzle is to cut another oval...I used the 6th oval from the inside. I center the cutting system on the designer paper and it away.

I then used the center leftover piece to punch out 45 (1/4) inch circles and adhere the opposite pattern to the inside of the oval, adhered that to the card base and this is what it looks like...45 little circles seems like a lot, but it actually went really fast!

The final steps are to decotate and stamp as you wish! I tied a piece of wide vanilla grosgrain ribbon and then stamped the bird image twice... once with river rock and then again over the top but slightly to the side on stazon timber brown.

Added some Pearls from the Pretties kit and did some paper piercing.

And stamped the flourish and flur-de-lis on the inside along with a sentiment and called it a day!

What do you think? Do you like it? The colors are from todays color challenge 176 Soft sky, river rock and very vanilla. I think it turned out super cute and just perfect for some anniversaries I have coming up!

Thanks for stoppin by and don't forget about my blog candy here...you have until Monday!

Happy Stampin'

Dirty Dare Tuesday

I have been doing the Dirty Dare 08 challenges on Splitcoast Stampers and have been having a blast...today I combine all 3 challenges. Michelle's Challenge was to make a manly card. Christines Challenge was to make a card using water coloring. And the FAMOUS JulieHRR's challenge was to make a card with a white base. I hope I did the challenges justice...I don't know that I would call my card manly, maybe boyish, bit I still like it!

This card was actually super simple to make! I used my nestabilities to cut out my rectanglr opening and then embossed it with the number cuttlebug embossing folder. i then stamped tyhe image with black stazon ink and colored it in using my aqua painter and reinkers. Added some glitter, ribbon and punched out 3 1/4 inch circles and called it a day...So what do you think?

What will you need?
Stamps: Pun Fun
Paper: Shimmery white
Ink: Stazon black, wild wasabi and blue bayou
Accessories: Nestabilities, wild wasabi stripped ribbon (on sale now!) 1/4 inch punch, glitter, aqua painter

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Shadow Box Frame Challenge

So I have been working on this shadow box for the gal I did the birth announcements, although I have been a major slacker and have not yet finished them...so today in the middle of cleaning house, doing laundry and having napping girls (the boys had a day out together) I made this little beauty!
Right now on Splitcoast stampers they are having the 4th Anniversary of the "Get Dirty 2008" and all week they are doing challenges for Fan Club members to play along with...we had 2 today One was Lauries to use Vellum and the other was Jody's to use ribbon. So what;s a girl to do but play along! I actually had a blast making this project. I have pretty much known what I was going to do from the minute she asked me to make it for her, I just had to sit down and do it! This is a 9x9 shadow frame that I picked up at Ikea and then I used the Berry Bliss designer paper (which is retiring by August 10th) and some purely pomegranate double stitched ribbon (no longer available). I also used a strip of vellum 4.25x5.5 and ran it through my cuttlebug embossing folder using the polka dots folder and added it to the top...covered my edges with the ribbon so that it all looks seemless!

This is a close up of the Bible verse...isn't it just the most amazing verse to use on a birth announcement? I love how the fonts look so nice together! Also in the corner I used a rubon to add more texture and dimention to the empty space...I have issues with "white space"

I wanted to be able to see the info that was on the inside of the announcement without having to tear it appart...I like how it looks with the top flap a little shorter, so I decided to cut a piece of the paper to fit in my printer and printed the info right on the dotted paper...leaving off the name and Bible verse of course!

I also had a wallet size picture of the birth announcement picture so I cut it out and added it...isn't it just too cute! her little hand is just too precious hangin out there!

The final touch was to add the little hearts...they are actually a rub on that I added to the glass once I had finished the frame...I hope she like it! If you would like a personalized shadow box for any occasion please feel free to contact me at mabieme1999@yahoo.com I will work with any size or theme.

What do I need?

Stamps: None...gasp!

Ink: none

Paper: Berry Bliss designer paper, vellum cardstock
Accessories: cuttlebug, dots embossing folder, pomegranate double stitched ribbon, bling, rub-ons, pictures, and a picture frame

The Ric raqc was made by using the scallip border punchy on both side of a piece of cardstock 3/4 and the other 5/8 inches wide. Fisrt punch one side and then punch the other side making sure the scallops alternae...not even.

Featured Stamper Challenge

Well we went to church last night and I'm just waiting for the bread dough to rise, so I thought I would pop on to see who the Featured Stamper challenge (FS76) was. It was Suziestampalot. So I too a peek at her Gallery on SCS here. (go ahead, you know you wanna look!)

What was I inspired by? I was inspired by this little beauty! Okay so I know my card doesn't look anything like the one you see in the link above, but I really really wanted to make an explosion card! So I used the same colors and dots and I even used some glitter...aren't you proud of me?
Here is a side view of the card...on the right hand flap I stamped Happy Belated Birthday. The pink paper was stamped with the Wanted stamp set in close to cocoa classic ink.

And this is a top view...isn't this card impressive? I know I would love to get a card like this for my birthday...even if it was late!

Like I said, I have been wanting to make an explosion card for a while and couldn't open Dawn's AWESOME video tutorial found here So I took the measurements that she had given at the top and fiddled with it for a while until I figured it out...trust me you wanna see her tutorial...I hear it's super easy to follow!

What do you need?

Stamps: Wanted, Older and wiser
Paper: close to cocoa card stock, Berry Bliss designer paper
Ink: Close to cocoa, stazon Timer brown
Accessories: scor-pal, glitter

Let me know if you need any help, I can always make a photo tutorial if you would like also!

NSR-Everyday Chit Chat

We had ourselves a good ol' family reunion today...my mother-in-laws side of the family and it was sooo nice to get together with everyone! We hadn't seen most of them in a couple of years (which is ridiculous cuz we don't live that far apart) So we all decided that we need to get together more often!

Here is a picture of Me-Maw (center) and Charlie and Aunt Pat. We just love these people and are so glad they are in our lives...Me-Maw is such an inspiration and such a wonderful woman of God! I pray that I will one day be as strong in my walk with Christ as she is! And this is a picture of all the kids there...we were missing about 5 kids on top of all the ones that were there...we are a bunch pf procreating fools! LOL

Thanks for stopin' by

Happy Stampin'
