We have been invaded....

by pirates and BEADS!!!!! Everywhere you looked there were pirates and beads, beads, BEADS! I had never been to a parade before where they threw beads out to the crowd instead of candy- that was until I moved to Florida. Here, the bead throwing is an everyday occurrence at a parade. The louder you scream to the floats, the more beaded necklaces they throw to you. It's crazy!
Now normally I try to avoid any parades and festivals here. There is just so much traffic that it just isn't worth the hassle, but today was different. I had to go. I needed to go. My oldest son, DJ, was marching in the parade with the school's band. So, Nathan and I applied our suntan lotion, grabbed our sunglasses and camera and headed off to the parade route to see if we could get a good spot. I had planned on taking pictures of DJ in his band uniform to send up to family in WI, but as luck would have it he was on the opposite side of the street we were and they marched by us way too fast for me to snap a picture of him. (I did manage to get the girl in front of him and the row behind him) So here are some pictures of today's festivities. Enjoy!
This is one of the pirate ships that invaded us today and threw beads. Nathan and I both came home with so many beads around that our necks hurt!
This is a picture of a blue train that Nathan thought looked like Thomas the Tank Engine.
This float would have been DJ's favorite one since it had a dragon on it. The entire float was very cool. It was in the shape of a castle with the dragon sticking his head out. Further back on the float you could see his body and tail.
This picture needs no introduction. Who would not recognize Ronald McDonald in his fancy car?
This was the HUGE balloon that almost took out Nathan and I. A gust of wind started blowing and the whole balloon tipped head first into the crowd right where we were standing. It was obvious we did not have the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade handlers here!
I hope you found something fun to do today (even if it didn't involve stamping!).
Happy Stamping~

Happy Day Friday

Today's card uses the SAB rub ons (unfortunately this great promotion is over). I admit I have stayed away from them until now. What was I waiting for? This card came together so quickly and was so fun to do. I will definitely be adding more of the Stampin' Up! rub-on's to my collection. I love them. If you missed out on getting them during Sale-a-Bration you can still purchase a wide variety of them in the Occasions Mini catalog and the 2008 Spring -Summer catalog.
One tip I do have for you when using the rub on's: Instead of using the Popsicle stick that is included in the package, try using your bone folder to rub the images on. I have found that it provides a more even pressure and makes it only necessary to rub over the image once instead of going over it over and over.
This card also let me use one of my punches that I don't use too often. Again- what have I been thinking??? This punch gives you 2 sizes of punches in one punching. It's a great way to add additional embellishments to your project without going overboard. You will be seeing more cards of mine in the future using the photo corner punch. :0)

Happy Friday & Happy Stamping~

Peep...Peep...Peep Bars?????

Well since today is the first day of spring I thought I would show you a "springy" project. :0) This is the gift Nathan took to school today for his home room teacher. I love the bright colors and these were super easy to make and make a great project to do with the kids. Nathan loved the fact that he could help me with the ingredients. This jar contains almost everything needed to make Peep Bars. The directions to make the bars is listed on the attached tag.
This is how the lid turned out. I wanted to have it match the Easter card that accompanied it. The card was from the post Here. I used another piece of a prints pack DSP from Stampin' Up! on the background and the eggshell. Isn't he cute? He kind of looks like the yellow peeps doesn't he?

This was the attached tag with the directions printed on it. I just had to add another one of the cute little chicks on the lower corner to tie everything together. The same DSP was used on the tag that was used on his shell. ( I just flipped it over and used the other side)
The idea for this project came from the gallery at SCS. If you haven't had a chance to check out SCS I suggest you do so. It is a great source of inspiration, templates and techniques. The thread that contains more information and directions on this project can be found here. If you'd rather - just drop me a line and I'd be happy to send you the directions.
Happy Spring~

Sky Simply Said

Hi everyone! Sorry about not posting, but I am busy working on several projects which all seem to be due at the same time. Isn't that how life goes? One project I am working on is a card for another demo only swap in which I need to make 50 +1 of the same card. I designed my card and fell in love with it, not realizing just how time consuming it was going to be to re-create 51 of them!!! Oh well- I sure hope everyone else likes them as much as I do.
Since I have been busy with that and making some taekwondo birthday cards for our Taekwondo school, I don't have anything new to show you so I went searching through my pictures. This is a card I had planned to use during one of my workshops, but the hostess decided she wanted me to demo a different set that she had already had. I aim to please so this card basically went into my "stash". For those of you who don't really know me- I am a cardaholic. Yes- I admit it. I keep at least one of every card I ever design or create. I also add a recipe to the back and file it away for future inspiration. I also tend to make a few of the same card at the same time and file those in another spot to have on hand when I need a card. I have them filed/sorted by event (IE: birthday, anniversary, get well, etc...)
This card uses the Simply Said set in the catalog. It is stamped in basic black onto whisper white card stock and then colored in with markers. It then is attached to a piece of basic black and black gingham ribbon is wrapped around it before attaching to the soft sky card base. The sentiment is stamped in basic black ink in the lower right corner. The larger flower image is stamped in basic black onto a scrap piece of whisper white, colored in with marker and then punched out using my 1-1/4" circle punch. This image is adhered to a 1-3/8" basic black circle and then attached to a scallop of soft sky. I used a rhinestone brad in the center to give it some depth and popped it up on dimensionals. As an after thought I used my paper piercer tool and punched a small hole in each of the scallops. Viola! Quick and easy card.

Sweet Strawberries

Don't these strawberries look scrumptious? Mmmmmmm...I love fresh strawberries. We have been eating them like crazy lately. They are so sweet and juicy. I made this card for a demo swap I am involved in. I had to make 10 of them and they were loads of fun to make. The rule of the swap was to use the Tart & Tangy set out of the new Occasions mini catalog. I just love how it turned out.

Can you guess what I used to make the white dots on the wild wasabi strip? It's the eraser of a pencil! I just dipped it in the whisper white craft ink and then stamped it on the paper. Neat huh? I really want the polka dot background stamp from Stampin' Up! but just have not placed my order for it yet. This gave me the same look for just pennies! The pretty in pink base was also stamped with whisper white carft ink using the Sprinkles stamp set. It was just too plain without something in the background.

The strawberries were made by coloring with real red and glorious green markers directly on the stamp before stamping the paper. I also stamped an extra image on scrap paper and cut out the stem. It is popped up on dimensionals as is the scallop strawberry. The strawberries are all glittery since I covered them in 2-way glue and sprinkled dazzling diamonds on them. I love how they turned out. They really make the card pop. They almost look like they were dipped in sugar.
Hope you're having a springy day! Happy Stamping~

Faux Leather Tutorial

Happy Friday everyone! I am sorry I am late posting the Faux Leather tutorial today. Better late than never right??? I have a sick little guy home with the flu today so he has been taking up most of my free time this morning. Last week my older son was home with the flu and I thought that since we had almost made it a full week we were in the clear- not so. Oh well! What can you do? This is my first attempt at a tutorial so please bear with me. If you have questions please feel free to email me at any time. I would be more than happy to help in any way I can.

Supplies needed: Card stock, choice of ink colors, masking tape, embossing powder, powder pal, heat tool

Step # 1: Apply masking tape in small pieces randomly all over the piece of card stock you want to look like leather. The color of the card stock won't really matter because in the end it will be completely cover up. Here I just used whisper white.
This is what your piece will look like once it has been covered in tape. Let the pieces go over the ends and make sure you haven't missed any spots.Step #2: Trim the outer edges of tape off the card stock.

This is what your piece will look after it has been taped and trimmed.

Step #3: Apply your choice of ink directly to the taped card stock. I found that twisting and rubbing the ink pad gave me better results. Others have suggested using sponge daubers to apply the ink, but this method didn't work the best for me. You'll have to experiment to find out your best avenue. You can also apply more than one color of ink if you'd like. I chose to use Close to Cocoa ink on one of my attempts and Chocolate Chip on another.
Step #4: After you have inked the taped card stock to your liking apply clear embossing powder over the entire piece. You do not need to apply heat & stick powder or Versamark. The embossing powder will stick directly onto the texture of the inked tape.

Step #5: Using your heat tool, heat the embossing powder. You will be able to tell when it is done by the change in color. In the photo above the right side of the card stock has been heat embossed.
Step #6: This is your finished piece of Faux Leather. Stamp, embellish and create with it as you choose.
Happy Stamping~

Faux Leather Technique

Today's cards feature the technique called "Faux Leather". This was such a fun and easy technique to do. I was so surprised at how easy it was. Looking at the cards, one would think that this technique was difficult and time consuming, but it wasn't. I am working on a step by step tutorial for this and hope to have it posted here for you tomorrow.

When I started playing with my Bronc Buster set I thought how wonderful it would be to have some sort of leather as a background. I didn't have any leather DSP or anything that even remotely resemblered leather so I started to search for an alternative. I stumbled across the Faux Leather technique. This is a technique using masking tape to create your background. I experimented with various shades of ink to get differnt looks. I am really happy with how these cards turned out. I,myself like the blue one, but hubby and the boys prefer the red. Which one do you prefer???

The DSP on these cards is the Western Sky DSP from Stampin' Up! I used this paper on the previous Bronc Buster cards I made. It just matches the theme of this set so well and the colors are just perfect for masculine cards.

Happy Stamping~

Bronc Buster- Yaaaahoo!

Aren't these cards just the cutest? I am always looking for cards that are more on the masculine side. This set makes it so easy to create masculine cards. Both my boys love these cards although they do not agree on which one they like the best. Go figure! When I first saw the set Bronc Buster in the Stampin' Up! catalog I was not too inspired to add it top my list. I admit- I had a little bit of a closed mind. I thought to myself- I don't live in the west or on a range so why on Earth would I want this? Well ... bit by bit people started posting thier amazing cards on SCS. I started looking and then I found that I couldn't stop. I was being drawn to this set. I finally broke down and ordered it on my last order, but didn't have a chance to play with it until today. What was I waiting for????

The base of each card is basic gray with accent color of Blue Bayou. The designer paper is the coordinating Western Sky DSP. I love how it matches the theme of the stamp set so well. This is one of the things I love so much about Stampin' Up! and it's products - everything coordinates and matches. There is never any second guessing on color matches because all the papers and inks are designed to match each other.

Happy Stamping~

A Fabulous Day!!

Saturday was a FABULOUS day for the Johnson boys! Both of my boys competed in the West Florida Taekwondo Championship tournament. They both did fabulous! DJ (my oldest son) moved up into the 14-17 year old division now. OH MY! I almost fainted when I saw the size of some of these boys. What do thier parents feed them???? There were 2 boys in this division who were well over 6'2" and weighed over 185 pounds! My son is about 5'2" and weighs 100 pounds. There is a big difference there! Thank goodness that they also break it down into weight classes when they spar. For those of you who know me, you know that this is one of DJ's first tournaments after being out for about 6 months due to a broken humerous. He did very well and we are so proud. He took 2nd in Forms and 2nd in sparring too.

Nathan also did very well. He moved up an age division this year, but also moved up a belt class too. He is now fighting in the 10 & 11 year old black belt division. He took 3rd in forms and 1st in sparring. Then he was asked to spar in 3 additonal exhibition matches. He won all those so he ended up coming home with 4 1st place trophies.

Okay enough bragging- on to some stanmping!!! Since we had such a fabulous weekend I was inspired to use the set Fabulous Flowers. These were 2 of the cards I came up with. It's hard to tell from the photos, but they both are very sparkly in person. I love using dazzling diamonds in my projects.

Here is the first card. The base of the card is river rock with groovy guava accents. I stamped the print pattern background stamp in river rock onto the river rock card stock. I then used my white gel pen to make small white dots between the diamond shapes. The flower images was inked in river rock and then sponged sporatically with groovy guava and stamped on whisper white. I used my 2-way glue pen to add the dazzling diamonds to the flower petal tips. The image panel edges were sponged with river rock before attaching to the groovy guava piece. The card is accented with the groovy guava double stitched ribbon and the rhinestone brads.

The second card uses the same color combo, just reversed. I stamped the print background stamp in groovy guava onto groovy guava card stock. I used the white gel pen to make the small white dots between the diamonds again. The flower images was stamped the same as above and dazzling diamonds were added to all the petals. I stamped the "Best Wishes" stamp from the Short & Sweet stamp set in groovy guava on each side of the flower panel before attaching it to the river rock piece of card stock. River rock double stitched ribbon was used on this card.
Hope you all have a Fabulous week! Happy Stamping~

Baby Shower Invites

We spent most of the night helping set up the gym for a taekwondo tounrament that our school is sponsoring so I did not have time to create anything new for you. I was able to find this card which I had made perviously for my cousin for her baby shower last year. It was just one of the samples I sent her and this is the design she ended up going with. (Yes we knew it was going to be a boy!!)
The base of the card is bashful blue. The barely banana panel was run through my Cuttlebug with an embossing plate. I love how this gave such depth and texture to the card. The handprint is from the retired Stampin' Up! set called "I'm Here". It was stamped in bashful blue onto whisper white cs and them punched out and added to a bashful blue punched scallop. The scallop was paper pierced in each scallop and then outlined with a white gel pen.
The "shower" sentiment was from one of the $1.00 stamps I found at Michael's. I only stamped the portion of the stamp I wanted to use. This was then punched out with my key punch and blue gingham ribbon was tied to each edge and around the barely banana panel.
Wish my boys luck at the tournament. Both of them will be fighting as black belts. I'll let you all know how well they do tomorrow.

You Crack Me Up!

I know, I know- another card using the same set. I just can't seem to help myself. I love this set! It is so fun to play with and the little chick is absolutely adorable. I decided that I wanted to make a tent topper card. I have only made a few of these but they have become very popular over at SCS. If you have never been to that site you need to! They have some of the most creative and beautiful card samples in the member gallery there. If you are in the need of some inspiration I guarantee you can find it there!

The chick is stamped in basic black and colored in using SU markers. It was punched out using a marvy punch and then attached to piece of barely banana which had also been punched using a marvy punch. I used my paper piercer to poke holes in each of the scallops and then outlined them with my white gel pen. The egg shell was stamped onto a scrap piece of Berry Bliss DSP and cut out. It was attached to the image using 2-way glue.

The background of the card is a piece of Berry Bliss DSP. The smaller piece of Barely Banana is stamped with barely banana ink using the Aida Cloth BG stamp. Using the paper piercer tool I pierced the upper and lower edge and created a faux stitch using my white gel pen. I then stamped the sentiment in the middle of the panel and added it to the card base. Pink dew drops were added to the left side as well as another cut out image of the egg shell which had been stamped onto another scrap piece of Berry Bliss DSP. It is popped up on dimensionals.

Easter Chicks

Can you say CUTE??? I sat down yesterday to come up with some Easter cards to send out to friends and family. I knew I wanted to use the set A Good Egg from Stampin' Up! and I also wanted to try and use some of the designer paper in my new prints pack I got. I tend to be one of those stampers who sees beautiful cards done using all the wonderful designer papers out there, but when I sit down to create a card of my own they turn out horrific! For once I am very pleased with how these turned out. My only problem now is that I don't want to give them away!!!

The card design was based off of a card I saw Dawn Griffith do on her blog HERE. I love how she folded the bottom end of the card up and attached her ribbon bow. I decided that I would use the same style layout for my cards. I used the floral print paper from the prints pack which is a level 1 hostess gift on each of the cards. I admit I ended up using a sheet of each color beacuse I could not decide which one I liked. Problem solved - I made one of each and now have a set of 5 cards. I still can't decide which one is my favorite.

The baby chick image is stamped in basic black ink and then punched out using the scallop punch. I stamped the image again on a scrap of the print paper I had left over after cutting and adhering the background piece. Then I cut out the eggshell and attached it to the scalloped chicken ( hmmmmm...that kind of sounds like something you could eat!!). I then finished coloring my baby chick in Barely Banana and mounted him with dimensionals onto a marvy punched circle of coordinating color card stock which was then mounted onto a marvy punched whisper white scalloped circle. This was attached to the card using dimensionals so the little guy actually pops out at you. The scalloped border was done using the same scrap piece of print paper and the corner rounder punch with the guard taken off. If you do not know how to do this you can find an awsome tutorial on Beate John's Blog HERE.

Fun Easter Baskets

Aren't these just the cutest things you have ever seen? When I saw them along with a video tutorial on Angie Juda's blog I knew I just had to make then for my Stampers 10 Club members as an extra special goodie this month and also a few for some special friends. Though they may look difficult to make and very time consuming, they are not. I sat down and made up about 12 of them in about an hours time. Once I got started making them I just couldn't stop! I adore the main image which is the little chick from "A Good Egg" stamp set. I think he is just the cutest darn thing.

To fill the baskets, I added some pastel colored jelly beans to a medium sized cello bag and tied it closed with some pink taffeta ribbon. They fit perfectly inside this little basket and made the perfect little gift. The baskets I gave to my club members had shredded, crimped paper inside and a few special chocolate goodies instead of the bags of candy. I wanted them to have more of an actual Easter basket feel to them. I will be making these for the boys teachers this year and filling it with some other special goodies for them. I think I will let the boys decide which colors they want the basket done in. I know I only took pictures of the yellow ones here, but I also used pretty in pink, certain celery and bashful blue to make up the baskets.

This picture shows just how cute the handles of these are. The handles are made from 1/2" x 11" cardstock. They are added to the box using the Soft Subtle brads. So quick and easy and so cute, Cute, CUTE!

Chocolate Birthday Whimsy

Todays cards feature one of the Sale-a-brations sets which are still available with a $50 purchase until March 17th. This set is called "Birthday Whimsy". I LOVE it!!! The set comes with images of a cake, a balloon, a present and 2 birthday sentiment stamps. It is such an easy set to use to whip up super easy and quick cards. My favorite kind of brithday cake is CHOCOLATE so I decided that I would use this set in conjunction with some retired Au Chocolate DSP that I had on hand. I am very pleased with how they turned out. Here are some closer views of each card:

I know it is hard to tell in this picture, but the cake was actually stamped 3 times. First I stamped the image on the main very vanilla panel. Then I stamped the cake image again on a scrap piece of vanilla. I cut out the entire cake portion and popped it up on dimensionals. Next I stamped the image yet again on a scrap piece of very vanilla and cut out only the frosting & added it to the panel with dimensionals. I used 2-way glue on the frosting and added dazzling diamonds to give it an extra special look. The chocolate scallop border was done using my corner rounder punch with the guard taken off.

The 2nd card also has a 3-d look to it. It too has 3 layers- same as the card above. The only basic difference to the cake panel is that I just added more of the 2-way glue & dazzling diamonds to the body of the cake.
