Meljen's Designs Challenge #112

Hi everyone!! I apologize that this post is a little late going up today. The first week of summer vacation has gotten off to a rocky start in our house! We wound up in the emergency room late Monday night because Andrew had a kidney stone. So we have been dealing with that over the past few days. I hope this is no indication of what the rest of the summer holds!

I kinda forgot about making my card for this week's Meljen's Designs Challenge until the very last minute, and so I was in a hurry. This is not my best work, but I do adore that little clown image. When I was a kid, I was TERRIFIED of clowns. I guess this one isn't so bad, though. In fact, he's pretty cute! 

This card layout is a Deconstructed Sketch. The image is one that will be released tomorrow by Meljen's Designs, so you're getting a little sneekie of it today! It's called Circus Clown. The challenge this week at Meljen's Designs is to use pearls on your card, and I added a lot of red pearls - including one for his nose! The paper is My Mine's Eye Lime Twist - Fly a Kite...love those bright colors! I added a ribbon to finish it off. 



Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Supplies:
Cardstock: New Leaf (PTI)
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite
Stamps: Circus Clown (Meljen's Designs), Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers
Embellishments: Kaisercraft pearls, ribbon

Stampin' Sisters in Christ #141

Hi there!! It's time for this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge! I am this week's hostess.

Scripture:
"The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?" Psalm 118:6

When I was a little girl, my Mama enrolled me in swimming lessons. I was terrified. By terrified, I mean screaming at the top of my lungs. At the end of the class, everyone had to jump off of the diving board. I never did it. Why? Fear. That's why. Today I'm an adult, and I'm still afraid of deep water among many other things. I'm afraid of heights, snakes, the dark, needles ( I won't look!), and oddly enough...fish (they creep me out). That's not all, either. Fear has kept me from doing a lot of fun things, like riding roller coasters with my family last year when we went to DollyWood. 

What are you afraid of? What's holding you back? What would you do if you weren't AFRAID? There are many things I'd do if I weren't so afraid of them! Maybe you want to try something new, but you fear failure. Fear could even be holding us back from things in our spiritual lives and serving God. Whether it's telling others about the love of Christ, praying with a friend, or even using talents to glorify Him...whatever you do, do it without fear and for Him! I know that I would play the piano more if I weren't so afraid of making mistakes! Whatever is holding you back today, put your trust in God, and KNOW that He is by your side no matter what! This is such a comforting verse to know that man or anything else cannot harm us as long as we have Him on our side! 


Challenge:
Do something on your card that you're "afraid" of! For example, CAS style, stitching, a vintage look, etc. Just do something you wouldn't normally do!

I'm definitely afraid of a clean and simple style! I try it every now and then, but it's never been something that I'm comfortable with. I decided to conquer my fear of CAS today! 




I embossed the Kraft card base with the Polka Dots embossing folder. I added a piece of patterned paper from the October Afternoon Farmhouse collection and rounded the bottom corners. I stamped the sentiment from Vertical Greetings by MFT Stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut it out with the coordinating Dienamic. I adhered it with foam tape and added a ribbon to finish it off. I also noticed that I have a little patriotic color scheme going on...perfect for Memorial Day weekend. :)


Challenge I Used:
Fab n Funky Challenge #122 - A New Beginning (my patterned paper is new)
Charisma Cardz Challenges #20 - no flowers allowed
52 Card Pick-Up
Craft Your Days Away #46 - Red, White, and Blue (I have cream, but there is white in my ribbon).

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed Sunday! Be sure you check out what these other ladies have to share with you today!

Christmas Card Challenge #26

Hi there!! This week's Christmas Card Challenge is to use bling! I have a whole drawer in my stamp room devoted to bling, so that's no problem for me! :)

I happened to see this awesome card by Debby Hughes at Lime Doodle this morning. I love and admire Debby's ability to pull off a clean and simple style so effortlessly, and I decided to CASE her card. Hope you don't mind, Debby!! 

I have to apologize about the photo quality. It is really hard (for me) to get a good photo of an all-white card! To make my card, I used a white cardstock base and rounded two of the corners. The square panel is from the Echo Park Winter Park collection, and I embossed it with the Snowflakes embossing folder. I added a blingy swirl and a ribbon. I stamped the sentiment from Sparkle and Cheer by Taylored Expressions in Memento Tuxedo Black, and that's it! 



Thanks so much for stopping by today!! :)

TSG Oh Crop Blog Hop Challenge


Hey y'all! It's the final day of sneak peeks this week for Release Week at There She Goes!! This set will NOT let you down!

Oh Crop is our second set from Melyssa this month, and it has STOLEN our hearts!! The flying pigs, the picturesque scene, that ADORABLE farmer…really, how could you NOT love this? You don’t have to be a country girl to know that THIS set is a Blue Ribbon WINNER!


Oh Crop is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 21 stamps and will sell for $24.00.

Okay, this set is my FAVORITE!!! We've always had all kinds of animals at my house, so this set hit close to home, and I just LOVE it! I made this card for my brother's birthday card. 

I sponged the sky background with Colorbox Ice Blue Chalk Ink. I colored everything with Copic markers and fussy cut the cute little farmer boy and popped him up with some foam tape. I cut out the fence and grass with dies. The sentiment is perfect because sadly, I did almost forget. LOL! I love all the funny sentiments in this set, and you will love them, too! I finished off my card by doing some stitching around the outer edge and adding two silver brads. I soooo wanted to add ribbon, but since it was for my brother, I opted not to. I was so happy with how this card turned out, and I don't say that very often about my cards!



In keeping with the theme of this stamp set, I thought I'd share a picture of the newest additions around here...just born last week! :)

TSG Cute as a Button Blog Hop Challenge


Hi there! It's Day Three of the previews this week at There She Goes! This set is definitely one of my favorites!!

What can we say about this new set from Torico, other than…it’s Cute As a Button?! The perfect sewing set for ANY crafter, full from top to bottom, end to end, with as MANY stamps as you could POSSIBLY need to make the perfect card or scrapbook page, this whimsically cute set is sure to have EVERYTHING you need to celebrate the crafter in your life!


Cute As a Button is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 33 stamps and will sell for $24.00.


My friend Kelly made me a pin-cushion frame that was adorable!! I was inspired to make one for my grandmother, who is a very gifted seamstress! I knew the Cute as a Button stamp set would be PERFECT to embellish it!

The frame is one that Andrew and I received for our wedding...lol! We got sooo many frames and I didn't have a chance to use all of them yet. I thought this one was so pretty and would be great for this project. I went to Hobby Lobby and picked out some fabrics that I thought my grandmother would like. To make this, I cut a piece of chipboard (or heavy cardstock) to fit in the frame. Then, I cut a piece of quilt batting the same size as the chipboard. I adhered the batting to the chipboard. I placed the fabric over the batting and wrapped it around the back and adhered it to the back of the chipboard. I placed it in the frame (without the glass, of course) and then replaced the frame backing. 

I made a few Yo-Yo flowers for the bottom corner. I stamped the sewing machine in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers. I also stamped the sentiment and sponged around the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I added some ribbons and a flower to finish it off. 

I LOVE how this project turned out, and my grandmother LOVED it, too! I gave it to her for Mother's Day. :)

TSG Flava Sava Blog Hop Challenge

Excuse me, I MUSTACHE you a question….is this NOT the CUTEST set?! Mustache’s, and puns about mustaches (lol), are all the rage right now and we couldn’t help but add a little TSG flare to this FABULOUS trend! The possibilities, and uses, for this set are endless…and just ENTIRELY too funny!

Flava Sava is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 14 stamps and will sell for $10.00.


I kept the design of my card pretty simple by using an older Mojo Monday sketch. I stamped the sentiment and mustache image in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut it out with Classic Rectangle Nestabilities. I accented the sentiment panel with a Cream Viva Pearl pen. The papers are from the Lost and Found Union Square collection by my Mind's Eye. I embossed the background with the Seeing Spots embossing folder. The scalloped border was cut out with the Simply Scallops Border Dienamics by MFT. I did some sewing and added a ribbon and a few brads to finish it off. That's it!

TSG ConGRADulations Blog Hop Challenge




Hi there! Welcome to Day One of Release Week at There She Goes Clear Stamps!


Melyssa is at it again, and just in time for all your graduation needs! This stamp set is PERFECT for ANY grad, young or old!! There is NO better way than to honor your favorite grad with a card, or scrapbook page, honoring their achievements!

ConGRADulations is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 17 stamps and will sell for $15.00.

Okay, first of all, let me just say that I LOVE this set! It cannot get any cuter! I have been needing a good graduation stamp set, so I was so excited about this one, and it came just in time because I needed to make two graduation cards for girls at church.  I usually don't duplicate cards, but to save time, I went ahead and made both of these cards just alike. However, I colored the other girl blonde since the recipient is a blonde. I didn't take a picture of that card since they were basically the same.

I made this card using the awesome sketch in this week's TSG #157 Challenge. It fits the image perfectly! You can check out all the challenge details here. We'd love to have you play along with us.

I stamped my image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending cardstock. I've been testing out a few different cardstocks for Copics, and this is my favorite so far. Now, if I could just improve my coloring skills, but I'm working on that. Seriously. I'm taking a class. :) I colored the gown and cap royal blue to match the school colors. 

The papers are October Afternoon Thrift Shop. I've been trying to pull out papers I haven't used in a LONG time. I loved the text paper that had words like "memories" and "moments." After all, high school is full of memories! The sketch had a place for a spiral clip with a ribbon and a sentiment attached to it. I was scared, let me tell ya! Jessie is AWESOME at pulling that off. I have tried and failed many times, but I was determined to get it right this time just because the sketch had it, and by George, I think I got it! What do ya think, Jessie?! This isn't something I'll be doing often, but I am happy I did it for the sake of the sketch. :) Oh, and I did some sewing (just cause it had been a few cards since I sewed on one) and  accented my image panel with a few little black rhinestones. That's it!

Happy Birthday, Jessica!

Hi there!! I am participating in a super FUN birthday blog hop today honoring the owner of There She Goes Clear Stamps - Jessica Knutsen!!! Her birthday isn't actually until later in the week, but since it falls during release week, we're wishing her a happy birthday a little early! That's okay...she can celebrate all week long! :)

Jessica, I hope you have a WONDERFUL birthday!

Here's a birthday card I made for you. It might come in the mail a little late, though! I'm sorry!

I used the Aim for the Clouds stamp set by There She Goes and colored it with Copic markers. I cut out the hot air balloon and popped it up over the landscape with foam tape. I used some Liquid Applique on the clouds. The patterned papers are from the Hello Summer collection by Echo Park. My cardstock background was embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder, and I used the MFT Simply Scallops Border Dienamics to add some trim to the bottom. My image panel is layered on a Lacey Circle Nestabilitie shape. I added a sentiment on a little flag and finished my card off with a few pearls and a ribbon. I hope Jessica loves it!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have fun on the birthday hop! Don't forget to wish Jessica a happy birthday! :)

Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #140

If you're looking for my Christmas Card Challenges post, please scroll down a bit. Thanks! :)


Traci is our hostess this week.

Scripture:
"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."
Ephesians 4:29

Challenge:
Build up your card by adding layers, paper-piecing, using stacked flowers, etc. 

Sponsor:
Tami Mayberry - One lucky winner will win a stamp set. Thanks, Tami!

I had a lot of fun making this card! I just kept layering it up! I used the A Happy Heart paper pad by My Mind's Eye. It was one I hadn't used in a long time, so I decided to pull it out from the back of my stash. I followed an older Verve sketch I found on Pinterest. The stamp is from Sentimental Thank You by There She Goes...love that set!! I sponged around it with Memento Cantaloupe to help it match the patterned paper and accented it with a blingy circle. I finished off my card with some Papertrey Ink ribbon and a Wild Orchid Crafts flower. 


Other Challenges I Used:
Friday Mashup #59 - ribbons and bows
Truly Scrumptious #80 - anything goes
Creative Card Crew #10 - sentiment as focal point

Christmas Card Challenge #25

Hi there! It's time for Christmas Card Challenge #25. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. It was a pretty easy one to follow.



I stamped the reindeer from Sparkle and Cheer by Taylored Expressions in Memento Bamboo Leaves. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out my image with Circle Nestabilities. The patterned papers are from the Tinsel and Twig collection by The Girls' Paperie, and I embossed the background with the Snowflakes embossing folder. I accented my card with a ribbon and some stick pins. The tree stick pin is by Maya Road, but the red pin is one that I made. I also added a few red pearls to the top corner.

That's it for me today! Be sure you hop over to the CCC blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the design team. I hope you'll play along with us this week. It's a great way to get all of your Christmas cards made in time for Christmas so you don't have all that extra stress in December!

TSG156 - Life's A Beach

Hi there!! Thank God it's Friday! It's been a fun week at school, and tonight I'm looking forward to having dinner with friends and catching up. 

I made this card for this week's There She Goes Challenge #156. The theme is "vacation." We're also featuring several older stamp sets this week for There She Goes Again Week - Life's a Beach, A Drink a Day, and Aim for the Clouds. All three sets are on sale right now in the TSG store! I used the Life's a Beach set for my card. 

I used the Echo Park Life is Good collection for my papers. I colored the drink with Copic markers and went over it with Glossy Accents for a "glassy" look. You can't really tell that in the photo, though. I also used Liquid Pearls around the edges of my image panel. I accented my card with some rhinestones and some horizontal lined ribbon that I picked up from the awesome RibbonCarousel.com!



Today the TSG blog is featuring new cards from the trendsetters using this week's There She Goes Again stamp sets, so hop on over and check out all of the inspiration! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!!


Supplies:
Cardstock: X-Press It Blending Cardstock, PTI Chocolate Brown

Meljens Designs #110 - Black

Hi there!

It's time for a new challenge at Meljen's Designs! This week's challenge is to use black on your card - a little or a lot! I think I used a medium amount. LOL! :)

I have a friend at school who is very dear to my heart, and she is retiring at the end of this school year. Not only is she retiring, but she's moving away from here, so I'm going to miss her! As I was browsing through my digis and trying to decide which one to use on my card today, I spotted this one and decided to make her a retirement card. 

This digi is Apple for Teacher. I colored it with Copic markers. The layout is Split Coast Stampers Sketch Challenge #385



I have to show y'all what happened with this card! I feel like goofy things like this happen to me all the time! I just wanted to CRY! I decided I wanted to put some red Liquid Pearls around my image panel, and a whole glob of it came out! A mistake in card-making is just an opportunity to embellish, right? That's how all those stars ended up on my card. I actually love the stars, though! :)


That's it for me! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll join us in the challenge this week!!


Supplies:
Cardstock: True Black (PTI), X-Press It Blending Cardstock
