Cards from Precious Scraps box!

Do you remember that I got a package from Precious Scraps last week? See my box of goodies here. Well, it's been weighing on me that I haven't made anything from those papers yet...but gee, much of it was pink and I need boy cards...! What's a girl to do?

Well, I think I did ok! I have made 3 boy cards so far; I'll show the other two over the weekend.

Card base is a white A-2. First layer is one of SU's old In Colors, Bayou Blue. Next layer up is a green print from Memory Box Sweetbay. Sweetbay is all beautiful baby boy blues, so it's funny I used the green first! The strip of animals is from Little Yellow Bicycle, baby safari girl. The brads in the upper corners are from the matching Brad Assortment. The little tag is from a Studio 112 pack, bought at my local dis-dis-discount store.

You can get all of the papers and brads from Beverly at Precious Scraps. Tell her I sent you, lol!!

Isn't it amazing how well this stamp matches the safari animals?? The stamp is from Great Impressions, J92. If you click on it to make it bigger, you will see how well the images match!

I hope my card made you smile a teensy bit!

A Star is Born

Can't believe I didn't post this when I made it. Was one of the quick ones when I was sick earlier this month. Can't possibly be original since I am not that clever, so I thank whoever had this idea first!

Set is Papertrey's Second Anniversary set, Everyday Classics. Inks are Papertrey's Spring Rain, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart and Plum Pudding (well, coulda been Lavender Moon?). Sentiment comes from Favor It Baby. Punched with SU's big and little star punches.

Gosh, I should go make a bunch more of these right now!

Circles and Stars

I really need to write things down when I make a card, since I seem to forget pretty quickly what I used!! Where oh where did that sentiment come from???

For the past couple of years I have only used SU or PTI card stock for cards, but when I first started in card making, I bought lots of premade cards- this blue one has been sitting for about 3 or 4 years, I bet. I have been cleaning out to take things to a yard sale, and this fluttered out- unfaded like many were, and just asking to be a baby boy card and go up to the hospital! so, I complied!!

I love the new embossed papers all over, but wish I'd written on the back who made this one so I could tell you! the ribbon is a piece of the Dots and Checks series from Michael's, and the green layer is SU's Certainly Celery- they match perfectly!

The big star is stamped with SU's Nursery necessities, and the little stars are punched from PTI's bitty Dots in Lemon Tart with SU's smaller punch. Welcome is from PTI's 2008 Anniversary set, and I am pretty sure the 'little star' is from savvy stamps.

My stress levels are even higher this week after the long sleepless day of work and cupcakes- now I am working on a 6 hour lecture that I have to have done by next Monday. I haven't worked with Power Point in a long time... I know how to stamp yellow arrows all over my paper, and overstamp black letters... why doesn't Power Point do it the way I do it, lol!?!

I came across this great book in Michael's, Hello, Cupcake! If you love cupcakes, you already know about this book. If you love to surprise your friends with your humble talents, you need this book!

I covered a box with white freezer paper and colored coconut green with food coloring. Made the cupcakes, iced them, put the necks and heads together, and dipped the tails in chocolate before going to work on Saturday night. That part took a couple of hours. When I got home Sunday morning, I attached the necks to the cupcakes, and inserted the tails, then piped icing on for manes and spots. Packed everything up for the one hour drive... and we were off!

We had a few decapitations and smooshes in the car on the way over- I think the heat of the sun melted some chocolate connections... but they were great snacks on the ride over!

Assembled the scene on the table when we got there. yeah! It was fun!

31 years is not a long time!

Wednesday was our anniversary, we've been married 31 years. Funny, I think I look old in the mirror, but he is 10 years older than me, and I think he looks young and cute!

I wasn't going to make a card~ we generally do not do gifts and cards to each other~ but this week there was a conversation over on the Papertrey forum about not showing cards that are copies. The problem with not showing them is that the original maker never knows how something they did inspires others!

Anya made this beautiful, perfect anniversary card~ be sure and go see it here- and be sure and leave her a comment! I had to take the opportunity to make it and show Anya how much I admired it! The only thing different I did was added the heart square from Quilters Additions, and made little points on the sentiments to make it more like a banner-

Here's my inside, from Out On a Limb Sentiments.

All products PTI, made just like Anya said to!

Dark Chocolate, Kraft, Vintage Cream and Sweet Blush CS

Dark Choclate and Sweet blush ink (also some Linen Distress on the edges of the banner and quilt squares)

Sweet blush buttons, Fiskars threading Water punch

Boats and More Boats!

I have lots of brass stencils, but rarely get them out. I wanted to do some quick baby cards, and the stencils work well for that! Indeed, I made 3 cards the other day before noon, and took them up to the hospital before I photographed them. If I'm lucky, I'll remember what I did so I can do them again!

Sorry the color isn't correct here, but I had to play around with brightness and contrast to get the embossing to show. The blue used is Papertrey's Spring Rain- it's a lovely blue color, and the ribbons are just glorious! The boat image is from Men of Life, and the bitty baby is from, well, Bitty Baby Blessings!

Can you see the embossed sailboats? I hope so! The stencil says TSC Designs on it, TMB 306. I don't know where I got it, I've had it forever! The white paper is actually one of the paper package inserts -you know, the piece that tells you what color the paper is-from Papertrey, lol, it's just the correct thickness for embossing, but the same white as their cardstock.

The ovals are punched with Marvy punches, after the white piece was embossed with the Cuttlebug dots folder. Spring Rain ink was swiped across the raised dots. The sails were stamped with Versamark and white embossed. The boat hull was stamped with Papertrey's Dark Chocolate on their kraft cardstcok. The bitty flag is a snip from a piece of colorful stripes.

I made the 'Ahoy little sailor' tag, but couldn't figure out where to put it on the outside so it wouldn't compete with the embossing. Wait- why can't a tag go inside? Ahh, very cute!!

A box from Beverly at Precious Scraps!

How's this for a sweet afternoon?
I asked Beverly at Precious Scraps- contact her here- to send me some Memory Box papers and some Dew Drops that match (as well as some other things to make baby cards with) ~ look what I got!! I just cannot wait to cut into these things!!!

Laugh with or at me!

So yes, those funny little brown bears are what I saw when I looked at Papertrey's latest Background Basics: Spots and Dots. Do you see what I saw? Try it out here! I see them best when I look at the 2 right hand images at the top- if you can't see it, or see aliens, that's ok. I talk to my shrink all the time about the images I see in my ink blots, lol lol lol!!

That is SU's bear from Cute and Cuddly, stamped on Spring Rain with Versafine's Vintage Sepia. The 'bears' were stamped with Vintage Sepia, then colored with a Copic Marker, E77. They are on Papertrey's Kraft cs. Dots are from Papertrey, of course. Gingham ribbon is Papertrey's Spring Rain- such a lovely ribbon! The little tag is from my pile of didn't quite make it things- I know the file folder punch is from SU, but I forget where that sentiment came from!

So, I may or may not keep this one. It could come apart or be remade or just plain go in the trash; I guess it could just go in the baby card pile as is, lol! Someone might think it's funny!

I found a duckie!

Where did I find this Flower Soft duckie? Downstairs on the kitchen counter! Did it waddle down there all by itself? Guess so!! I worry sometimes what else might be stuck to me when I go out shopping, lol lol lol! Even the bank ladies know when I have been making cards- covered in glitter, of course!!

Nichole Heady showed how to do these bows on her blog; you can see her version here. I show you her entry knowing that if you click on it, you may spend so much time there you won't come back, lol! So here is my version of the bow made by tieing the floss around the ribbon, just scrunching it together. Easy!!

The center square was made by putting thinner cs (sorry, don't know what brand!) through the Cuttlebug with the little square embossing die. It then tears off of the cs easily- The little duck is punched with an EK Success punch from lemon Tart (Papertrey), then covered in Lemon Flower Soft, and adding a seed bead eye. The beak was colored with a SU marker.

I forget who made the sentiment at the moment, but it is punched out with the SU word window punch. The paper is a scrap I had, but the ribbon is SU's Brocade Blue grosgrain, ink is Brocade Blue as well.. Button is Close To My Heart white.

Bits and Pieces of Ocean Tides

Do you have bits and pieces sitting in a box or drawer just waiting to be made into something? I bet we all do~ and here's one that came together quickly the other day.

The Guidelines 1 Ocean Tides background layered on a piece of summer sunrise and with a strip of White twill came to me as a Thank You card from one of you~ who and why, I have no recollection- it was over a year ago, maybe 2?? I cut the card apart, and saved the layers!

The stork was a failed image over stamped with sentiment. The stork is from Anna Griffin/All Night Media, the sentiment is Penny Black. I think it is stamped in Palette's burnt Umber, when I first got that pad. I colored the basket with Ocean tides using a blending pen, the beak and legs are colored using one of SU's markers.

When I first did the image, I thought the sentiment didn't work, it is too close to his body. This week, when I had 2 hours to make 5 baby boy cards (wow, the ratio of boys to girls has changed significantly since the Iraq war, but that's another story!) and knowing they just pay for supplies, I think it looked fine!!

I layered it all on a plain Ocean Tides card, and used the satin white ribbon since it looked more formal than more twill.

An Inspiration Challenge

I was inspired by Papertrey's Casual Midweek Challenge Number 49- an inspiration challenge, see it here. Papertrey does not have these bright colors, although Palette's Beaux Arts Blue and French Lilac would have worked.

This piece had so much potential, lol, but I think I let it down! I had one of those Kaleidacolor ink pads- Riviera. I smeared the multicolored ink pad across the paper, then stamped some of the stems from Papertrey's Life in SU's Whisper White. I smeared clear Stickles around the flowers and let it sit overnight. When I came back the next day- Wow! The glitter had picked up all kinds of color!

Then the badness began- my dang hands messed up the purple layer, then I missed the spot I was aiming for with the sentiment (Papertrey's Birthday Basics).

This is just beautiful close up, with all of the different glitter colors~

Oh well, you get some right some days!

3-D carriages

Why does it always happen that no matter how hard I plan, 15 minutes after the Papertrey release and my order submitted, I decide I need at least 2 more things??? Gheese... And I have bought so much the past 3 weeks (I never did tell you about the SU order that came yesterday, lol!) I need nothing!

I learned how to make 3-D items from my favorite LSS, All About Paper, LLC. they sell a 'kit' of instructions, tag, and the thinnest batting you have ever see to learn how to do these. Let me know if you want her phone number to buy a kit- she doesn't have a website!

Papertrey April Guest Star Stamper

I'm headed out to work, so thought I would show you my GSS for this month- I entered this one in the Mother's Day project category. Of course, since I have been playing with Flower Soft, you knew this card would have some!

Flower stem from Life stamped on New Leaf paper with SU's Whisper White craft ink, rounded upper right corner. Card base is Stamper's Select, with Polka Dot Basics stamped in New Leaf. Single stem (from Life) stamped in New Leaf on Stampers Select, trimmed down (lol, do this before you add the flower!) and rounded upper cornera. Turns out the rounder is bigger than the corners- the flowers don't fit in the rounder, lol. I had to round off a scrap piece, trace the round arc on the back of the flower piece, then trimed with a scissor. Do not try this experiment at home!!

Next step the Flower Soft! I put dabs of glue on the flower 'buds' of the stem and added the Flower Soft, and made two flower stems from green floral wire as well. I used one of the vases from the Flower Soft line, glued it over the stamped image; when the glue was dry I added in the wires.

Stamped Happy Mothers Day from Women of Life on Berry Sorbet, and glued it behind the vase pieces. Layered the vase piece on the New Leaf and added a piece of Berry Sorbet twill knotted with a little cut of New Leaf Bitty Dots satin. Layered everything onto the base, and Voila!

Happy Mother's Day!

Made the color, not the cut!

I submitted one card for Papertrey's April Guest Star Stamper, and thought I might finish this one up tonight and get it in by midnight. But, no, not gonna happen. I slept late this morning, and all day have just wanted to go back to bed! Now it is almost 9 pm, and I am still waiting for my day's energy to arrive. So instead of a GSS, I have a card without a sentiment to show you~

I used dark floral wires and both light green and Sweet Pea flower Soft for the flowers and stems. The vase is one from the Flower Soft line. It's glued to a Stampers Select white Marvy oval, then placed on Marvy punched scalloped ovals- Spring Moss and Berry sorbet, both with little white dots on the scallops. the piece was then layered on one of the Pink Patterns papers, then onto Berry Sorbet with a SU border punched out, then onto the Spring Moss card. Finished size is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4.

As you can see, there is a tiny pink ribbon bow glued onto the vase. If you were more clever than I, you would put a gray 'shadow' line with a marker along the left edge. I will do that, as well as add a sentiment, when I go to use the card! I think it would be a very nice Mother's Day, birthday, or Get Well card!

Butterfly for a Baby~

I had a request for a card I've never made before; a 'Congratulations on your Pregnancy' card. without an image of a pregnant woman, and not knowing if humor was ok, I came up with this idea... well, that and a new stamp from last weeks shopping spree!

The butterfly image was stamped and embossed with gold on a piece of paper covered with Tattered Angels spray. I must say I have had very little success with this stuff, and am ready to pitch 5 bottles into the trash. I get nothing but blobs, and even blobs that spray a long distance, lol! Well, this little piece does look nice as a butterfly!

The image was then gold embossed on a piece of cream on cream patterned paper. Next layer down is a piece of Kromekote with Copic refills used as 'ink'. I was lucky to have some colors that looked similar enough to the sprayed colors. I edged with a gold pen, and layered on SU's Pink Pirouette textured paper. The little 'It's a Girl!' sentiment on a tag tied to the organdy bow is the only indication of what the card is for.

Inside is a leftover piece of the alcohol inked background, a leftover embossed butterfly, and a sentiment from SU (Full of Life). That and a wheensy piece of fuzz that snuck into the picture!

I used a SU flourish (Doodle This) and a Papertrey butterfly (With Sympathy) to finish off the envelope.

So, ok, I see the butterfly is crooked. I folded the wings up, which left just a bit of body to attach to the card with adhesive. guess I'll go realign it, and put some glue dots on to hold it better!!

Well, I've waited over a week, and the person who won my Anniversary Set Blog Candy never surfaced to claim the prize. How's that for anti-climactic? Shall we try again?

Wow. What an awesome blog candy!

sarah has no link attached to her name, and no blog I think. sarah, are you out there??

More bunnies!!

How's this for cuteness?? These are the bunnies I saw on Pines (Heather Nichols) site during the March Blog Hop. I get a lot of ideas from the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!
The card base is SU's Whisper White, with Pink Pirouette DP as the layer. The bunnies are punched with the blue Marvy circle punch, and the ears are punched from the DP with SU's oval punch. Two little dots for eyes, a pom-pom for a tail, and done!
Ribbons are Papertrey's Pink Blush grosgrain with Swiss Dots for the bow. The Sweet Blush ribbons match the Pink Pirouette papers perfectly! The card is finished off with a savvy stamps sentiment, and a little charm from who knows where.
I made this as a baby card for the hospital, but I am worried about those pom-poms. They are glued on with Tombow White glue, and may not tolerate all of the handling from the nurses. I may go shopping- gasp- and look for some Ivory Flower soft! After I finished the card, I tried making a tail using Liquid Applique, and that worked too; except it isn't white white when dry, it's a bit on the yellow side, so paper choices would be more limited.

It's Bunny week!

Why, I do believe it is Easter on Sunday! I guess that means I should go get some jelly beans and put some bunnies on my baby cards!

The first card is a direct CASE from Ashley, I saw her card during last months Blog Hop. Ashley is anew19 on Papertrey's forum; her blog is here There is a bit about hot links I don't know; I hope this link to your first page is ok, Ashley! Her baby card is dated 3/25/09.

My card uses the last bit of background I made for the March Blog Hop- I know I said that before, but I swear this time it is true! The bunny tail is a wee pom-pom glued on with white glue- I hope it stays! Papertrey's Sweet Blush polka dotted paper makes the bunny and the layer that was also punched with SU's lace punch. The bunny is just sitting in the middle of a pink organdy bow, attached with a couple of glue dots.
I had stamped out two bunnies, so might as well make two cards! Much simpler this time!! Welcome Little One is a great size for cards; it comes from Papertrey's Anniversary Set, Everyday Classics.

More bunnies tomorrow!!

Yellow & Green

Can you stand it if I just show some cards and don't describe them? I have tried 3 times to do this post, and now I am too tired to go back and see what stamps I used...

There are no Papertrey or SU products in the yellow card, lol, just some coloring with SU markers...

The bunny is a House Mouse Hopper, of course- paper pieced the carriage. Base card is SU Almost Amethyst, but the rest is just stuff from the paper file... except the Martha Stewart 'ittle bow!

Here's another shopping spree item- American Crafts green bitty dots ribbon, pretty narrow, and it matches the Papertrey New Leaf paper exactly!! Only cost $1.00 in one a markdown container next to the cash register- wish I could remember which store, lol, I'd go back for more!!!

Lemon (Tart) Flower Soft!

Can you believe it? There is more to show from our shopping spree! Below is the Lemon Flower Soft- it matches Papertrey's Lemon Tart! Look at the teensy ribbon they sell as well! It must be meant to tie around bouquets of flowers; it is about 1/16 of an inch wide! Superb for baby cards!!

Shall I stop talking in exclamations??

I punched out 3 ducks from my new EK Success punch. I also got a border punch with bats aligned in both directions. You do need to be careful with the border punches- the dinosaurs are sooo cuute but can't be a card lower border since they are aligned wrong. Well, of course they could be added on as a different layer, but you know what I mean~ anyway, then I applied the Flower Soft, and colored the beaks with an orange fine tipped marker. What to do for eyes??? I don't have black seed beads...


Here's the Flower Soft close up. Scratchy feeling... holds static... clumpy... but oh my, lookie below!!

How's that for cuteness? Lemon Tart & Ripe Avocado paper along with one of Papertrey's polka dotted papers. SU's scallop border punch. Marvy punches, and SU's word window punch. just arrived from savvy stamps, brads are SU. Ripe Avocado Twill ribbon. Black seed beads from Michaels.

Be sure and look at it closely by clicking on the photo, I think you can see the Flower Soft better. Forgot to say the flourished circle is from Boxes, Bags and Tags and is stamped in Summer Sunrise.

What's missing? That teensy ribbon tied in a bow at the ducks neck~ just need the DD to come tie the bow for me, and we're all set!

Brown Flower Soft~

2 more things I bought on my week of shopping~ a new Penny Black stamp and some brown Flower Soft.

I wanted to try and do animals in the brown Flower Soft, but nope, the House Mouse just looked like the DH's beard when I was done. If you click on the picture to make it larger you will see that a little bit of the Flower Soft went a long way, here. It looks very nice, but any more would be too much.

The image is colored with SU's markers, then is layered on Papertrey's Spring Rain and Spring Moss. The layers were then placed on SU's Almost Amethyst, after Papertrey's littlest butterfly from Butterfly Kisses was stamped in Lavender Moon and done over with purple Stickles. Sentiment is one of the Studio G $1.00 clear sets.

Be advised that the card is almost exactly as the card in the LSS where I bought the stamp- Ink About In in Westford, MA. It was the cutest card, so i cased it, except for the Flower Soft. My thanks to whoever first did this card!!

A Papertrey Challenge- What was that stamp?

Papertrey's Challenge 3 weeks ago, Number 47, was to make an image from a stamp not meant to be...use it differently... well, you know what I mean. Create a new image from a stamp. I would like to blame being late on being sick, but well, this one took some thought, lol, and I just haven't felt like thinking!
I used Recipe Box Labels, Green Thumb, and an i from the Simple Alphabet to make my Birthday card. I used Stamper's Select, Hibiscus, and Sweet Blush papers. Now a funny thing happened: I stamped the flower pot from Green Thumb in Vintage Cream on Sweet Blush. Did all of my decorating, but when I went to do my layers I realized the Sweet Blush wasn't Sweet Blush any more- the cream ink altered the color! Too funny! So, the second Nesty layer is actually SU's Pink Pirouette- phew! It matched!
The cake stand is made from 2 flourishes from the Recipe Lables set, stamped in Versamark and embossed with detail silver. I did the small case i the same way, then put teensy dabs of yellow liquid pearls on the tops of the 'i's' for flames.
I've had that beautiful flower ribbon for eons, and the seed beads are from SU's pink set. White liquid pearls did the cake decorating, and a bit of glitter finished it off. Well actually, some Hibiscus Bitty Dots ribbon and a birthday sentiment from Mixed Messages on a CB teeny tag finished it off!
Just for fun, I made it an odd size- 4.25 x 4.25.

Flower Soft and Papertrey, plus Buttons!

Oh la la, Shopping Spree! So, I've been cooped up for weeks, right? It's my BFF birthday, and she had $100.00 to spend. I had a $75.00 credit at the LSS, and a $20.00 credit at the not-so LSS. What are a couple of old girls to do in these circumstances??

Shopping spree! I have bought so many things over the past 3 days- counting 2 Papertrrey orders too, lol- that it will take me a week to show it all to you! First I wanted to try Flower Soft... the colors above are Lilac and the mix is called Fushia. I think they look good with Papertrey's purples, as well as SU's Almost Amythyst. I also bought some of the paper and ;'topper' they produce, just so I could follow the directions exactly. Some of those I did came out really nice, too!

Now, I hesitate to show you this card, since it is superb IRL, but the alcohol inked paper looks funny in the photo. Trust me! Ranger came out with new alcohol ink colors, and I bought 3- Cloudy Sky, Salmon Pink, and Mountain Rose. I was going for baby card backgrounds of course, but mixed with a gold Pilot Pen, this piece that matches PTI's Melon Berry popped up. Stamped PTI's Life in Spring Moss, then followed the Flower Soft directions and used Sweet Pea. Ha! You knew I would buy one with that name, right? Golly gee whiz, doesn't it look good with Melon Berry! The nice medium sized birthday sentiment is from Papertrey's new anniversary set.

I really hope you can see the beautiful Melon Berry colors!

Some of the folks on the Papertrey forum have been griping about the black buttons. Me? I tend to not gripe about little things like buttons, I only gripe about real injustices in the world. Well, maybe some people gripe about buttons because it takes their mind off of the real injustices? Oh dear, a digression....

Papertrey may or may not produce buttons to match earlier colors, so on my spree I came across brown buttons that look great with Dark Chocolate, and green buttons that look pretty good with Spring Moss. See the tiny jar? The label said Tres Jolie, that 's all I can tell you- no color label at all. That tiny jar was $3.75, and I bought two of each color. So, look at the Chocolate jar- that's $7.50 worth of buttons. The fuller jars are Papertrey's buttons of course- each of those jars is one bag that cost $5.00.

More shopping and cards tomorrow!!

Thursday, April 2, 2009


Two weeks ago when I was in the worst of being sick, I was way behind in baby cards- so! You know what to do- make easy ones! The blue card is I have no idea what blue, it's from my 12 x 12 stash, and was sitting on top. I rarely buy 12 x 12 solid colors any more, but the stash never seems to get smaller!! Any way, the giant Bundle of Joy stamp is from the dollar store, and has no makers mark on it. The stork is SU's Along the Same Lines. Colored with SU markers, and layered with SU's Apricot Appeal. The ribbon is a random but matching satin. the little charm is from Michael's, you get a bunch for a little bitty price in the 'wedding and showers' section.
Tthe girly card is made with random pieces sitting on the table. I do not know who made the card, but I think the scalloped oval is from one of the Nana's Nursery mats packs. The pink felt bunny-too cute!- is from Martha Stewart. I confess, I like the MS things! You see none of the pinks match here, but the randomness of it made it look ok. The pink felt bunny not matching is why some of the MS 18 x 18 inch pink scrapbook paper made it's way home with me today, lol! The sentiment is stamped on Papertrey's Vintage Cream, and the Vintage Cream Satin ribbon is tied in a bow along the edge- the paper and bow matching helped bring the card together, too.

My shopping excursion today brought me some Flower Soft, and Papertrey's Life set was in the mail when I got home! How lucky is that? I bought 2 colors of the Flower Soft, and after playing for a bit, I am ready to jump in the car and go look for more colors! Lucky for the wallet that the place I know has some colors is closed on Friday! One of the Papertrey GSS categories this month is Mother's Day projects, so tomorrow I will see what I can come up with using my 2 colors of Flower Soft!
