Delightful Dahlia

Hi!  This is my 3rd project inspired by PTI's Make It Monday Challenge to partially emboss/deboss.  One card was also inspired by Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger (See photo below).

This is actually my 3rd post of the day.  I would have posted yesterday but got too sick last night to craft.  Oh, the horror!  I wanted to but my body just wanted to sleep.  If you're interested in the first two posts, see HERE and HERE.

I made 3 cards with the fun foam and cardboard frame.  For these projects, the cardboard frame seemed to work best in not leaving any impressions in the middle where I wanted to stamp the flower from PTI's Delightful Dahlia stamp set.

This one is inspired by the colors and buttons from Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger.  I really like how everything is neutral with just a hint of color.  That's what I wanted to convey with my card.  The base is PTI's fine linen cardstock.  The top cardstock is vintage cream.  The dahlia and sentiment are stamped in Hawaiian Shores.  I love how these colors came together.

I used PTI's Book Print impression plate.

The buttons are from Stampin' Up, tied with some embroidery floss and attached to the vellum strip.  I also scored double lines all around the card.  It's my first time with their challenge.  Hope you'll get a chance to play along with the Tuesday Trigger too!

I followed the same layout and made a Mother's Day card too.

This one is just a bit different with the dahlia being raised.

And yet another one just slightly different. 

The book print impression just goes half way.  See, I did mention in my previous posts that I was absolutely obsessed with this technique and I had to try it every which way.

I will save the last project for tomorrow.  Thanks for reading!

These are incredible!! I love them all - the partial embossing technique is one I have yet to try, and now I feel like I NEED to go give it a whirl! I have a big feeling you have a Trigger Target badge in your future...that card is an amazing take on the photo :)

I really love all of the cards. I haven't tried the partial embossing but think I will give it a try, it looks so nice on your card.

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!
