Today’s card (8-23)

Hi all!

Meet today’s card.

I resisted posting it until late today since the Blogs 4 Boobies event was still happening.

This is one I worked up with a sketch this week for Skipping Stones Design. The sketch is one that I made up.

Again, artist I am not. 😉

I used stamps from a couple Skipping Stones stamp sets on my card: Dandelion Dreams and Everyday Blessings. The paper is from Echo Park Paper.

That’s all for now.

By the way, speaking of sketches, be sure to check out Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World this week. The editors from Paper Crafts are sharing some of the sketches from the new Card Ideas special issue.  It’s filled with a bunch of sketches and a whole bunch of different takes on them.

See you again soon!

Last Day of Blogs 4 Boobies!

Hi all!

It’s the last day to bid all the projects up for grabs as part of the Blogs 4 Boobies effort from Skipping Stones Design and friends.

There is still time to bid on my project in fact. Here is another look at it. 🙂

My project is a five card set.

The cards come with envelopes. They are blank inside.

Each card has a different sentiment on it.

I am also throwing in a Grunge stamp set from Skipping Stones Design (which I had an extra one of) as  a thank you to the winning bidder.

The auction will end at 8:00 p.m. Mountain time August 23rd.

The highest bid is currently $30.
To win this simply bid more than $30  in the comment section of THIS post.  YOU MUST INCLUDE your EMAIL ADDRESS with your $bid. ( This way Skipping Stones Design can get in contact with the winning bidder.)
Remember 100% of what you bid will go to the Komen foundation!!! If you are the top bidder you will receive a paypal invoice for the amount that you bid.

There is also still time to shop at Skipping Stones Design and benefit the Komen Foundation!!  Through midnight on the 23rd of August, Skipping Stones Design is still donating $2 (to the Komen Foundation) for every stamp set sold.

Together we can make a difference!!!

Lawn Fawn: Retro Day

Hi everyone!

Another day. Another Lawn Fawn adventure.

Today is Retro Day so the gang is playing with two of Lawn Fawn’s earlier stamp sets: Heebie Jeebies and Harvest Season.

I decided I was going to whip something up with Heebie Jeebies.

So meet today’s card. 🙂

I thought it’d be fun to make something not so Halloween’ish with the set.

I made the one spider’s line a little longer by first only inking the line and stamping it and then inking the whole stamp up and stamping it again. The tiny hearts are from My Silly Valentine.

The sentiment was made with a mixture of stamps from Heebie Jeebies and Smitty’s ABCs.

Be sure to hit the blogs of the rest of the Fawny bunch to see the new projects they dreamed up with Heebie Jeebies and Harvest Season.

Lawn Fawn: Many Thanks

Hi all!

It’s another fun day of Lawn Fawn fun!

Today, the Fawny bunch is playing with the new Many Thanks set.

So meet today’s card.

The conversation bubble is from the new stamp set. I just love it, and I am planning to make something in near future that pairs with with the conversation bubble from the Hello Friend set.

The cat and dog are from the Critters in the ‘burbs set.

Be sure to hit the blogs of the rest of the Fawny bunch to see more “in-action” shots of the Many Thanks set.

Lawn Fawn: Happy Haunting

Hi everyone!

Well, well, well. It’s time for another week of Lawn Fawn fun.

The folks at Lawn Fawn are releasing nine new stamp sets this week, and the Fawny bunch is playing with a few of them.

Today, we are all messing around with the new Happy Haunting set.

So, with that, meet today’s card.

I thought it would be fun to turn the ghosts into a ghostly family so I fashioned a bow with twine and then made a bow tie with cardstock and gem. Just a silly but fun thing to do.

To make the moon, I first flipped the moon stamp over and coated the backside with yellow ink and stamped it. Then, I flipped it over and stamped it with black ink.

The moon, fence, words, bats and ghosts are all from the new stamp set. I stamped the background on my card with the every practical Teeny Tiny Backdrops set.

Be sure to hit the blogs of the rest of the Fawny bunch to see more “in-action” shots of the Happy Haunting set.

Today’s card (8-19)

Word to my card digging friends! 🙂

Dummm. Dummmm. Dummm.

Can’t touch this.

Dummm. Dummm. Dummmmm. Dummmm.

It’s card time.

Meet today’s card.

I was working on some other projects yesterday. I had a few odds and ends left ofter so I put them together to make this.

It’s really just a fun experiment in playing with what I had on hand.

The papers and embellishments are from GCD Studios. I can’t get enough of these sweet flowers from their Funhouse collection. They are one of my very favorite embellishments from them.

The words are a stamp from Technique Tuesday’s Fabulous by Ali Edwards stamp set.

See you again soon.

Over and out,

MC “T”
