Herd You Had a Birthday

Howdy partner(s)!!!  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Are you ready for another super fun theme this week at Always Fun Challenges???  If you’d like to see what I created for last week’s theme, which was One Layer, click here.  Now, for this weeks theme, this was totally out of my comfort zone, but I made it work.  The theme is Down On The Farm.

I didn’t even get this one completed until Saturday afternoon.  I had a heck of a time coming up with this one.  I’m so glad I did it though.  Like I said, this took me out of my little comfort bubble, but check out the result.

IMG_2144-copy

I used a never before used stamp set (AKA NBUS) called Lunar Animals by Mama Elephant.  I used a NBUS paper pad and a NBUS die from MFT.  Too bad Darnell wasn’t doing her NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) challenge right now, this one would totally qualify!!  It may not be going on now, but you should check out her blog for the NBUS challenge that she does a couple times a year.  It’s a lot of fun.

This was another one that I completely winged it as I went.  I had no idea how this was going to turn out.  While this is not my normal style, I still think it turned out ok.  I think it would be perfect for a kid’s Birthday.  The inside reads, “Have a Moo-tiful Day!!”

IMG_2145-copy

Another out-of-my-element fun fact is that I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to color these cute little farm animals.  I’ve had these pens for awhile now, but I’ve been quite intimidated by them.  I tried them when I first got them and I just didn’t like them.  Or I should say I didn’t like my results.  But the more videos I’ve seen of people using them, the less intimidating they seem so I decided to give them another try.  I was actually pleasantly surprised.  I really like them!!  As long as I had a water brush right next to me at all times and a super fine paint brush, I felt comfortable.  I felt like I could handle it without holding my breath the entire time.

Anyway, I hope you’ll join us over at Always Fun Challenges this week by clicking here and linking your “Down on the Farm” creation.

One Layer Card

Hi folks!!  Hope everyone has had a great start to the New Year.  I have a one layer card to share with you guys today.  I chose to use some adorable images from Purple Onion Designs.  They are one of my favorite stamp companies.

I chose Birch the Bunny because I had our rabbit, Thumper in mind when I made this card.  Unfortunately we lost him on New Year’s Day.  I’m still pretty heartbroken about it.  He was such a cool creature.  I had never had a rabbit before so it was definitely a learning experience for us, but he turned out to have such a cool personality and I fell in love with him.  Our dog, Bentley was “playing” with Thumper and we don’t really know what happened.  We thought he was in shock, I held him for about 10 minutes then was told to put him in his cage, where he’s familiar with the smell and put a blanket over it to darken it.  We did that.  I went to check on him about 30 minutes later.  I sat there with him and watched his breathing and the way he was acting, something was off.  Then his breathing started to slow way down.  Then he just quit breathing.  The boy’s were pretty devastated.  I’m still pretty devastated.  I feel awful for letting him down.

But enough with all this sadness.  Let me move on before I can’t.  I made this card in honor of my dear Thumper.  The theme this week at Always Fun Challenges is One Layer card.  I’ve made a process video, if you’d like to see how I made this.

Hello 2018 Shaker Card

Happy New Year friends!!  I hope everyone is as excited about a New Year as I am!!  I don’t necessarily do New Year’s Resolutions, but I do have some goals set up for 2018.  How about you guys?

Our elves have gone back to the North Pole, the bomb that went off in our living room that we lovingly call “Christmas Morning” is also gone.  No signs of it ever happening.  I’m taking our Christmas decorations down this weekend and the boys go back to school on Tuesday!  Looks like things will be back to normal in no time.  I like to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving so that I can enjoy my lights and decorations for a full month.  I love how everything looks when I first put it all out.  But by about now, I’m ready to have my house back, my living room, my normally lowered electric bill back…  It’s time.  I’m ready to move right on into 2018!!

I decided to do a “Hello 2018” card because I’m excited about this new year.  The theme this week at Always Fun Challenges is…. Something New.  (To see my card for the last challenge, A Christmas Carol, click here.)  Something New, New Year, I went with an easy choice, but I’m just really looking forward to moving on into a brand new year, with new expectations, fresh starts, you know what I mean?  Anyway, here’s what I came up with:

IMG_2088-copy

I thought I had made something similar to this, but I wasn’t even close.  I’ll add a pic down below of what I thought was similar when I was making this.  I have a HORRIBLE memory…

IMG_2096-copy

I love a good shaker card!!  I knew I wanted to do something kind of tlike shiny and sparkly and the best way to achieve that is with a shaker.  I thought about going gold, but the card I had in mind, the one I thought was similar to this one, was in gold so I went with silver.

IMG_2100-copy

It sure is sparkly and shiny, isn’t it?? Below is the card that I had in mind while making this, that I thought was very similar to the one I was making.  Click here to see my post featuring this card.  I was a little worried I was making the same thing over again and just didn’t fully realize it.  It definitely is similar, but not quite the same.  I made a few of these for a custom order from my Etsy store

IMG_1185-copy

I really like the Happy New Year card above, but I LOVE the not so traditional Hello 2018.  I just think it’s different.  I like that about it. And I just HAD to use these adorable WISH trees as props before I packed them up for the year.  My dear friend got them for me from a local store and I can’t stop staring at them.  They are gorgeous!!

IMG_2101-copy

I hope everyone has/had a fabulous New Year’s and I’ll see y’all again next week!!  If you’d like to add your project(s) for this week’s theme over at the Always Fun Challenges blog, click here to be redirected.

If you’d like to see my process, just click on the video below.

I couldn’t capture it in a photo, but the white paper I used for my card front was really interesting looking.  It was part of a glitter paper pad from Michaels, but while all the other colors were super sparkly, this one almost looked like a matte sparkle.  It sounds contradicting, I know but it really did look that way!  I don’t know how else to describe it.  I couldn’t find a few of the items I used to include in my products list below, including the matte glitter paper, so I’ve added them separately with a picture and a link.  I just googled these items and included what I found below.

Holiday Glitzy Solids

This is the paper I used for the card front.  You can find it here.

marquee-halloween-glitter-paper

This is the paper I used for the black and silver glitter.  You can find it here.

The number dies that I used I couldn’t add because it’s a Stampin Up item so if you want it, just ask your Stampin Up demonstrator about the Large Number Framelits that coordinate with the Number of Years stamp set.  I’m sure they can lead you right to it.

Everything else is listed below.

OH!!  I almost forgot to mention this, but Simon Says Stamp is having a HUGE year end sale right now.  Hurry over before it’s too late.  Click Come see our new arrivals at Simon Says Stamp!” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>here to check it out!!  Heidi is STILL adding items as we speak so don’t miss out!!

Happy Halloween!!

Happy (early) Halloween!!  I’m so excited to announce this weeks’ theme for the Always Fun Challenges blog.  Have you figured it out yet??  It’s HALLOWEEN!!!  I LOVE Halloween!!  I’ve been working all month on getting our road closed to traffic on Halloween.  Which, I’ve learned, requires an encroachment permit.  That means I had to get signatures from every house on our entire street!!  The good news is, the City has agreed to close it!!  WOOHOO!!  The population of Fort Bragg is a little less than 7,300 and we handed out candy to a little less than 1,300 kids last year…  That’s just crazy!!  No one knows why the entire town comes to this street for Halloween, but they do.  And we LOVE IT!!  It was just getting too dangerous to have vehicles driving up and down with that many kids.  At some points while I was handing out candy last year, I looked up and the line was out into the middle of the street!!  I wish I would have taken pictures, but we’re always soooo busy!!  They start coming at about 4pm!!  Here are a couple pix that I did manage to get from last year.

IMG_9379-copyIMG_9374-copyIMG_9377-copy

Speaking of Halloween, let’s talk about this card I made.

IMG_1610-copy

If you can’t tell by looking at this, I was greatly inspired by Vicky Papaioannou’s “Glowing Moon Technique” card.  She does this background MUCH better than I, but I still had a lot of fun making this one.  The card came together pretty easy.  First I made the distress oxide background, and then I created the moon and placed my Silhouette witch (design ID #65963) over the top and lastly I added my sentiment.  As you know, if you’ve read any of my posts or watched any of my videos lately, quick and easy are about all I have time for these days.

I added some Shimmer Spray to top it off.  Can you see it?  It looks really cool in person.  Pictures just don’t show the cool details sometimes.

IMG_1635-copy

Hello Friend

Hi guys!!  I’m back with another card and a new theme for this week over at Always Fun Challenges.  The theme this week is Black and White.  How fun is that?  You can do just about anything with B & W!!  I started off thinking I was going to be making a Halloween card, since Halloween is right around the corner, but at the last minute, I decided to go with a ‘Friend’ card.  If you’d like to see what I made for last week’s challenge, click here.

IMG_1584-copy

You can never have too many of these kinds of cards and I really wanted to use this embossing folder again, so this is what I came up with.

I had a little bit of a rocky go with the background, which you can see in my video below, but in the end, I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.  And I LOVE the little flower die that was included in last month’s card kit for Simon Says Stamp.  It was the perfect addition.

Well, it’s family night at the Elam Residence so I’ll leave you with a video and a list of all the products I used.  Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see y’all next week!!

Quick and Easy Monochrome

Hello crafters!!  Welcome back!!  Last weeks card had so much going on, that I’ve decided to keep it nice and simple this week.  (To see my card for last weeks’ theme, click here.)  Well, I didn’t really decide.  Amy at Always Fun Challenges decided because the theme this week is “Monochrome”.  Here’s my take on that.

IMG_1548-copy

I’ve never made a monochome card before.  I think I say that every week, but keep in mind I’ve only been making cards for 2 years now.  There’s a lot of things I haven’t done yet and a lot of stamp sets I’ve never used yet.  But don’t fret, all in due time, my friends.  Wow, I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years since I fell head over heals in love with this beautiful hobby.  And I don’t see myself growing tired of it any time soon.  Which is good, since I’m DEEPLY invested at this point.  I think my hubby would kill me…

Back to the card.  This was so easy and so quick to make that I plan on making several more in several different colors with several different sentiments.  Just to have some cards on hand.  I envy the people that have boxes of pre-made cards ready to go at a moments notice.

IMG_1551-copy

The measurements for the paper are:

Cardbase: 4.25″ x 5.5″, next layer (darkest purple) is 4″ x 5.25″ and the card front is 3.75″ x 5″.

If you’d like to join us at Always Fun Challenges, just follow this link and add your project!!  Simple as that.  I love seeing all the GORGEOUS entries each week.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you guys next week!!

Lots of Layers Featuring SSS Feb. Card Kit

Hi guys!!  Happy Belated World Cardmaking Day!!!  It was October 7th, for those that may not have known.  I just found out about 4 days ago, but unfortunately we were at an out of town football game so I didn’t get to craft at all.  That’s ok, I’ll make up for it this coming week.  The theme this week at Always Fun Challenges is Lots of Layers.  This is why I love being on this design team.  It makes me try things I normally wouldn’t try.  I don’t work with many layers very often so this was a little out of my league, but I did the best I could.

I mainly used everything from the February 2017 Simon Says Stamp card kit.  All the papers and sentiment are from that kit.  I wasn’t sure where to even start so I used a sketch to help get me going.  As you can see, this card was very easy to put together.  Here is the sketch I used.

Mojo397Sketch

Once I had this, the rest was a piece of cake!!

IMG_1539-copy

For the circles, the smallest circle I used was 1 3/4″.  The next one up was 2 1/8″ (craft cardstock).  The bigger set of circles start at a little over 2 1/2″ and the biggest circle I used is 3″.  The strip of pink card stock is 2″ wide.

The banners:  Smallest is 1/2″ x 2″

Biggest:  1/2″ x 2 3/8″

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Playing with Oxide Inks

Hi friends!!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  I had a crazy weekend, but I did find a little time on Sunday to play with the few distress oxide inks that I own.  I will say that after playing with these, I’ve gone ahead and ordered 7 more!!  I keep hearing people say how easy they are to blend and they are NOT exaggerating!!  These inks are AWESOME!!!  I’ve added a process video at the end of this post so you can see for yourself.

So in case you’re wondering what the theme is this week at Always Fun Challenges, it’s “Anything Goes”.  My favorite!!  I had so much fun playing with these inks, that I didn’t stop at just one card.  I made three!!!  Which is kinda crazy considering I didn’t even have a card made yet as of Saturday, the day I’m supposed to turn my project in (like I said, it’s been a crazy busy weekend).

IMG_1503-copy

I watched a video by Jennifer McGuire where she used stencils and oxide inks and it looked like a lot of fun so I gave it a whirl.  This is my version.  I only have 6 oxide inks at the moment so I started out using Cracked Pistachio and Broken China.   I spritzed some water on my stencil and placed it on top of my blended background and left it alone for a couple of minutes.  When I pulled the stencil off, I ooh’d and awed for a couple of seconds and then started on another one.

IMG_1454-copy

Once I got the feel for how these inks blend, I added in some Faded Jeans.  I absolutely LOVE how they turned out.  This next one I did, I used a more delicate stencil so I was a little worried that it wouldn’t turn out as good.  I made this stencil with my Silhouette Cameo awhile back and I think this was my first time using it.  The top part doesn’t pop as much as the rest of it, but I’m ok with that.  While less of the surface reacted to the water, I still love it.  It just has a more delicate look, is all.

IMG_1498-copy

I saved my favorite one for last.  I made this stencil with my Silhouette as well and even though I covered up a lot of the background with the vellum, you can still see the awesome reaction to water!!  I am in love with distress oxide inks.  Not only do they blend so seamlessly, but they have such a cool reaction to water!!  All distress inks do, but this is just sooo cool.  I can’t wait to get more colors now.  I added some vellum behind my sentiment, added a few clear Nuvo drops and tied some twine around the bottom and voila!!  Card complete.

IMG_1505-copy

Thanks for stopping by!!  Below is a process video where you can see for yourself how smooth these inks blend.  Below that is a list of all the products I used.  Until next time…

Build a Scene with Purple Onion Designs

Hi guys!!  Happy Monday to you all.  Hope everyone had a good weekend.  We had our 2nd football game out of town on Saturday and unfortunately we didn’t win…  Makes for a looong trip home, that’s for sure.

For this card, I used images by Purple Onion Designs.  Tell me this isn’t the cutest fox and frog you’ve ever seen!!  I absolutely LOVE all of Stacey Yacula’s images.  They are just so stinkin adorable.  All of them!  The theme this week at Always Fun Challenges is Create a Scene.  This background image makes it so easy to create a scene without even trying.

IMG_1394-copy

All I did was mask the “free spirits” image and then stamped the background and colored it.  That was it!!  I used copics and my polychromos colored pencils.  I’ll add which copics I used as soon as I can.  I didn’t have time to upload a video for this one, but I’m not sure I even should.  It really was that easy.  I may still add it to my YouTube channel, who knows.  I’m kind of a rebel like that…

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you’ll head over to the Always Fun Challenges blog and join us each week for a new theme.  There’s so much inspiration over there, you just gotta check it out.

Until next time,

Misty

Back To School

Hi guys!!  Hope all you parents are getting back into the swing of a routine.  We started school last Wednesday and I think we’re finally getting our groove back.  It’s amazing how every year, we seem to forget how to cope with back to school!!! We struggle with the getting up early, getting lunches made, early bedtime routine, as if we didn’t just do it the year before!!  This year is particularly crazy because my husband is coaching football and I took over as the Vice President of the football league (first year even on the board so I have no idea what I’m doing).  I’m here to tell you, it’s a lot more work than I thought it was going to be!!  That on top of everything else in our lives is making me a little crazy.  So school and football basically start at the same time.  We’ve had Jayden’s best friend, Bubby and his Mom staying with us for a couple of weeks now so it’s been nice having another Mom here to help us function.

Speaking of “Back to School”, that is the theme this week at Always Fun Challenges.  So bust out your back to school stamps and get crafty with them!!   I don’t really have any school/teacher related stamp sets so this was the closest I could get.  I absolutely LOVE these little birds from the Stacking Animals set from Simon Says Stamp.  They work for so many different occasions.

IMG_1190-copy

Look how CUTE they are!!!  And the glasses from the Geek is Chic die (by MFT) fit perfect on the biggest bird.  I just can’t get over how cute they are.  I added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle to the glasses and then topped them off with glossy accents.

IMG_1188-copy

This will go live after our hectic weekend, but right now  I’m desperately trying to get my house clean for Jayden’s Birthday sleepover that we’re having Saturday night (so when you see this, that would have been last night).  We just realized 2 days ago that we have to do it this weekend.  My son’s Birthday is next week but next weekend is Labor Day weekend and I’m doing a 2 day craft fair, then we have football games every Saturday night from now until November.  Our next home game isn’t until September 23rd.  And I just realized all of this 2 days ago…  Way to go, Misty!!  My hubby is at the high school football game right now with Jayden and 6 of his friends so I’m taking advantage of this childless moment to CLEAN!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  You guys always leave the sweetest messages for me.  I really appreciate it.  If you have time, head over to the Always Fun Challenges blog and check out last weeks participants.  We have some beautiful entries.  If you have some crafty time, I encourage you to join us this week for some Back to School fun!  As always, AFC is open to anyone and everyone who’d like to participate.  We have a fun, new theme each week.
