Today’s card (7-31)

Hello all!

I was in need of a sympathy card so today’s card is a bit on the tame side. 😉

That background paper was stamped with just one stamp from Technique Tuesday’s Irony set.  It was really easy to make it.

I selected one stamp.

I doused a piece of sponge with three inks. I used Shabby Shutters, Broken China and Peeled Paint from Ranger Industries.

I then used the sponge just like an ink pad and stamped the image over and over (and over) again. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back tomorrow! 🙂

Get ready.

Get set.

It’s time for another card.

I know, you’ve been waiting. 😉

Vine/Flourish/Swirly thingy from the Simply D’Vine clear stamp set by Technique Tuesday. I stamped it with ink. The stamp has kind of a cool distressed effect when you stamp it. The Thanks stamp is from Technique Tuesday’s Big Mouth set. The flower is from Prima. The brad and cardstock is from my stash of stuff.

Have a great day! Be back tomorrow.

Today’s card (7/29)

Today’s card is simple but fun.

It features some fun, fun new stamps from Art Declassified – Graph it! (that’s the graph paper); the girl (she’s from The Johnson’s set) and “hi!’ from the Hanging Out set. These stamps are all part of the ADC’s Summer 2008 release.

The conversation bubble chipboard accent is from American Crafts. I stamped the sentiment on it with Staz-On ink from Tsukineko.

Thanks for peeking! I’ll be back tomorrow. 🙂

Today’s card (7-28)

Do you ever see a popular color combo and think, “Um. Cool, but, um, yeah, not for me.”

That’s kind of how I felt when I first started hearing about the ever-so-trendy turquoise and red color combo. I was like, “Dude, it’s nice. But I don’t think it’s really Teri nice.”

And… so.. ha ha…  6 months have passed (at least) and the joke is on me because I find now I kind of like it. Sigh. Darn it.

And, with that that, I give you today’s card, complete with that ever-so-trendy color combo.

Yep. Joke’s on me. 😉

The bird from a piece of patterned paper from good ol’ American Crafts. The ledger spot is from Jenni Bowlin. The stamps are from Technique Tuesday. The border is from their O Christmas Tree set. The words are from the Enjoy Everyday set. Both are from TT’s Summer 2008 release.

See you again tomorrow.

Today’s project (7-27)

Taking a break from the card’s today to share with you a paper crafting project – a little notebook.

It started as just a small notebook pad.

I made  a cover for it by cutting a heavy piece of cardstock to fit around it. I glued the notebook to the folded piece of cardstock. I finished it up by decorating the front with patterned paper and letter stickers.

Easy peasy.

The papers are from October Afternoon and American Crafts. The letters are from American Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Today’s card (7-26)

Howdy friends!

Hold onto your hats. I’ve got another card for you today.

I used patterned papers from October Afternoon and a rub-on from Pebbles Inc. to make today’s card.

Time it took to make: 20 minutes. Time it should have taken: 5. I really struggled with figuring out just where I wanted that flower. 😉

Have a super day! See you again tomorrow.

Pardon the interruption…

… but I have to break up my “Today’s card” posts and share a little something on the personal side. 🙂

As many of my pals out there know, I love concerts and I am a John Mayer music junkie. Certifiable. Completely. 🙂

And, so, with that,  I present to you a few pics from J.M. Concert #5. Wooohoooo!  

 Somehow the stars shined and the earth moved because these pictures come from you about 10 feet away from his mike stand. So, so cool!

Awww, just looking back at these pics makes me happy. 🙂

My friend and I were probably the oldest people in the first 2 rows of our section… lol. But it was great show. I am so glad got to go with her.

Today’s card (7-24)

Today’s card is one of those ones that just came together.

It isn’t always that way, but it just worked out that way for me today. 🙂

To make this bad boy, I used patterned papers from October Afternoon. The sentiment is a rub-on from Pebbles.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back tomorrow.

Today’s card (7-23)

Some days, you hit homeruns.

And, some days, you don’t.

In all honesty, today’s card isn’t going to win any awards.

And it’s not going to known as the card that wow’d 1,000 people.

But it is going to be known as a simple, basic, “the fewer steps, the better” kind of card.

I think I’m good with that today. 🙂

The patterned paper and stickers are from American Crafts. The brad and the ribbon are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by. Be back tomorrow.
