MFTWSC78 - Congrats Grad!

Hi there! Happy Saturday! It's the last day of June. I can't believe how fast the first month of summer flew by. I know July will go by just as fast, and then I'll be back in school before long, but I don't want to think about that right now! 

A friend asked me to make a pre-school graduation card for her little boy, and when she asked me to make it, I knew the ConGRADulations stamp set by There She Goes would be PERFECT for his card!

I used the My Mind's Eye Fly a Kite paper collection. I chose it because of the bright colors, but I was so excited to find that it had this cute alphabet paper in there which looked perfect for a pre-school graduation card. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with Copic markers. I accented the image with White Opal Liquid Pearls and added a flag sentiment. 

I used the MFT Stacking Stars Dienamics to add some embellishments, and I coated them with Diamond Stickles. The trim was cut with the MFT Simply Scallops Border Dienamics.

This layout is the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club #78.

TSG Poultry in Motion Blog Hop

Hi there! Last month I was SO excited about the Oh Crop stamp set since I grew up around farm animals. I was hoping that someday there would be a companion set with even more animals! Little did I know that that set would be coming THIS MONTH! SQUEEL!!



When drawing up last month’s Oh Crop set, there were just TOO many cute images and sayings for one set, so we HAD to split it into two. Poultry In Motion is the companion set to Oh Crop, and includes SEVERAL new sayings, and more ADORABLE images you are sure to love! From the farmer’s wife, to several more barn yard friends, you will LOVE what you can create when these two sets combine.


Poultry in Motion is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 30 stamps and will sell for $18.00.

I made this quick and simple card for my daddy. He's had goats for a long time and has recently started raising sheep, too. I actually gave this card to him for Father's Day. I colored the goat with Copic markers and cut him out. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the Kraft cardstock base. The patterned paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety collection - a very old paper collection but perfect for cards like this, so I use it sparingly! I finished it off with some twine and red rhinestones.

Meljen's Designs #116 - Bookmark

Hi there!! 

This week's Meljen's Designs Challenge #116 is to make a bookmark. I honestly think that in all my time of stamping, I have never made a bookmark, so this was fun!

I bought some of these paper-clip bookmarks awhile back with intentions to make bookmarks for gifts, and well, I never got around to it. So, I pulled out one of these to do my bookmark with.

I used the Pre-Colored Penpal Mouse image and cut it out with Circle Nestabilities. I layered it on a scalloped circle and hot-glued it to the paperclip base. I added a ribbon to finish it off.
Super easy! These would make great teacher gifts! 



Thanks so much for stopping by today!! :)

TSG Stitched with Love Blog Hop

Hi there! It's Day Two of release week at There She Goes!


Last month, we released the CUTEST set by Torico, Cute as a Button. This month, we have it’s PERFECT companion-Stitched With Love! Full of additional images and sentiments, whether used separately, or together, no matter what you create, Stitched With Love will be PERFECT for the crafter in your life (or you!!)!!



Stitched With Love is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 24 stamps and will sell for $15.00. 

First of all, I have to thank the awesome Karen Giron. I watched her video tutorial on editing card photos yesterday, and it made a huge difference in this photograph of my card. My card photos have never looked this good, so I want to thank Karen for sharing her knowledge!! :)

I used this week's TSG162 Sketch Challenge for my layout. This was a really fun sketch, and there's still time to play if you want to! I used some  yummy My Mind's Eye papers - Dolled Up - for this card. I love the colors! I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black. I did lots of stitching on this card because a sewing themed card needs stitching, right? I had a knock-down-drag-out with my sewing machine, though. It did NOT want to cooperate. I used the TE Scalloped Eyelet Border Die for the scalloped trim. I finished my card off by adding a pearl in each corner and some grosgrain ribbon.



I was really happy with how this card turned out. :) I don't sew *fabric* at all (just on my cards), but my grandmother is brilliant when it comes to sewing, so I love to make sewing-themed things for her. She's always gifting someone with something she's sewed, so I think she'll love this card to give with her next sewn gift. The best gifts my grandmother has ever given me are the ones she's made herself. Here's a photo of her Christmas gifts to the girls in the family a few years ago.

TSG Scent-sational Blog Hop

Hi there!! I'm so excited because us girls at There She Goes have another FABULOUS release week for you. These sets are the best yet! I LOVE all of them, and I know you will, too! :) 


Sniff…Sniff…..Can you smell what Melyssa has created for us this month?? It is SCENT-SATIONAL!!! Full of super cute sayings, and the most adorable skunks EVER, well, there really isn’t anything stinky about this set! Adorable AND punny…just how we like it!! 


Scent-sational is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 23 stamps and will sell for $24.00.

I have to be honest, y'all. I never thought I would think that a SKUNK was adorable. LOL! However, this set is full of the CUTEST little skunks ever!! I especially loved the one holding the flower, so I used him on my card today. I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Cardstock and colored him up with Copic markers. There was a LOT of white space around my image, so I played around with adding some grass and shading him with a blue Copic. I like the way that filled up some of that white space. I layered my image on a black scalloped rectangle.

The paper I used is from the Crate Paper Random collection. I added some flags to the bottom of my image. I stitched around the edges and stamped my sentiment at the bottom corner. It's very hard to read the sentiment. I wish I would've chosen one of the "bolder print" sentiments. However, it says, "things would stink without you." Hehe...too cute! I finished my card off with some black rhinestones and some cotton twill ribbon from Ribbon Carousel.

SCS Journeys VSN - Baby Journeys

Hi there! I am a Virtual Stamp Night hostess at Split Coast Stampers, and it's time for my challenge!


The theme for VSN is journeys, so I decided to have a baby-themed challenge since having a baby is a big step in the journey through life. Of course, since journeys tend to have movement, my challenge is to incorporate movement/motion/travel into a baby card. For example, you could make a card/project with a baby carriage, stroller, stork, a mobile (since it moves), a rocking chair, etc.

I used this sweet baby carriage from the Bit of Stardust stamp set by There She Goes Clear Stamps for my card. I stamped it twice - once on PTI Vintage Cream and once on patterned paper - so that I could paper-piece the carriage. I stamped the sentiment underneath the carriage and accented the image panel with a Cream Viva Pearl Pen. The papers are Baby Steps by Simple Stories, and I stitched around my paper edges. I finished off my card with some cream ribbon.

My card layout is Freshly Made Sketches #39.


I hope you'll play along in my SCS Virtual Stamp Night challenge! Thanks for stopping by! :)




Supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Kraft, Vintage Cream
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories Baby Steps

There She Goes Challenge #160 - Circles

Moo! Neigh! Baaa! Oink! Moo! 

Haha!! Did that get your attention? I'm in a good mood because I LOVE this card that I am sharing. That seldom happens. I don't always LOVE my cards, but I LOVE this one. :)

I'm playing along with this week's There She Goes Challenge #160. Our challenge is brought to us this week by our Trendsetter of the Week, Debby! She is challenging us to use circles on our card or project in any way you see fit. From circle cards, buttons, and brads, just use circles in any way you can. 

I made this card for my grandfather for Father's Day. He has a barn and a herd of cows and grows veggies, so I know he'll love this! 

I used the Oh Crop stamp set. I love this set like cows love grass. I think it's my favorite. :) I used Freshly Made Sketches #39 for the layout. 

The sentiment that I used was computer-generated. I wanted to use the "whole herd" part, but the sentiment that came with the stamp set said "birthday wishes from the whole herd." I typed up "father's day wishes from the whole herd" and printed it directly onto the Kraft cardstock. Then I embossed the cardstock with the Seeing Spots embossing folder. 

I colored the images with Copic markers and masked the barn so I could sponge the sky. The patterned paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety collection. I fussy cut the cow and popped him up with some foam tape. I finished my card off with two red rhinestones. I have lots of circles going on in this card for the TSG challenge - even the spots on the cow! :)



Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have to run and get things ready for our Father's Day family get-together later this afternoon! I made Lemon Ice Box Cake and Ultimate Baked Beans. Yum! Bye y'all! :)

Cardstock: Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink), X-Press It Blending Cardstock

SNSS ~ With Sympathy

 Do you ever have one of those days where you just don't want to do anything at all? That was my day in a nutshell. I was totally lazy today. I had so much that I *needed* to do, but there was very little that I wanted to do. I needed to make cards and do that dreadful sink full of dishes from all my baking attempts yesterday, but instead, I read my Kindle and took a nap. Yup. 

I did cook supper, though. The best thing ever about living in the South is supper time in the summer. There's always something fresh and locally grown to eat. Tonight it was corn, tomatoes, and squash. That's good eating, y'all. I was pretty proud of myself, too, because I attempted to fry up squash for the first time. That's the only way I like to eat it. My MawMaw used to fry it up in cornmeal when I was a kid. I love it sliced extra thin and fried crispy. I used this recipe by Deep South Dish to fry it. I was kinda scared, but it turned it out awesome, and that first bite took me right back to eating it when I was a kid. You've gotta love food that brings back memories. As for the corn, spread it with butter, salt, and pepper, and wrap the ears up in aluminum foil. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for about minutes. Turn the ears during cooking. I won't ever boil corn again. I love it like this! 

As for the card I'm sharing, I made it yesterday. Our pastor's mother-in-law passed away last week, so I wanted to make a sympathy card for them. Our pastor and his wife are very special to us, so I wanted this to be a pretty card. I used the Morning Glory stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Secret...I'm scared of flower stamps. I'm not very good at coloring flowers, so I hardly ever buy them, but I couldn't resist this beautiful set. I told myself I'd just have to practice the whole coloring thing! So if my light source and all that jazz is all wrong on my flowers, well...oops! I still love how my card turned out, and I don't think the recipients will be looking to see if I got my coloring right. LOL! :)

The layout for this card is MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #75. The papers are My Mind's Eye Fiddlesticks. I colored my image with Copic markers. I added some pearls and ribbon to pretty it up a bit. I will leave it at that since I've already been running off at the mouth...umm...fingers tonight. :)



Challenges I Used:
Lollipop Crafts #83 - flowers as focal point


As always, thanks for stopping by! Have a good night!!
