Simply Betty Stamps Facebook Fan Page April challenge

Good Morning my lovelies! If you are looking for my Drunken Stampers post, simply click here, or just keep scrolling down!

I was coloring this gorgeous image yesterday, and wanted to share the card I made with you all.

Here is the inside:

This is a free digi from Simply Betty Stamps called Elaine. You can get this for free (very generous!) when you join the Facebook Fan Page, and you must use the image! (no brainer there!) For the April challenge, you use the Elaine image plus ribbon and swirls on your card. I used a swirls embossing folder on the solid yellow panel and that gorgeous green crinkle ribbon. Finished the inside with the sentiment and another swirl stamp and I was done!

My card is based on sketch #83 by Freshly Made Sketches.

Thanks for stopping by! It looks to be a beautiful day today and I may spend it outside planting flowers (or at least getting the flower beds ready for planting!) Have a wonderful weekend!

Drunken Stampers #125: Up

Happy Saturday everyone! Today starts Challenge #125: Up, at Drunken Stampers!

As you may know, this term is all about the movies! Make a project based on the movie title, or the theme, in this case: balloons. Or you can really challenge yourself and incorporate BOTH! Ha ha! I Double Dog Dare ya! LOL! This week is Team Midnight Margaritas turn to play. Here is what I came up with:

and the inside:

I just lurves to WOW ya's with my inside sentiments! LOL! The house stamp I used is actually a cuckoo clock! Shut the front door! For reals?! Yepper! I masked out the dangling thingys and the clock face and, for lack of a better phrase, the cuckoo hole. LOL! (I'm all about the technical terminology here at Chrispy's Creations...NOT!) Except for the blue polka dot panel and the inside panel, it was all about using scraps on this card! Yay! I stamped, colored and fussy cut the 'house'. Used some yellow and white card stock scraps for the door and window and drew the door knob and window panes. (Yes, I know the vertical line in the window is off center. But who wants to be perfect anyway? HA!) The balloons are stamped on more scrap, then I cut some different colors of twine and stuck them on the backs with glue dots. Both the house and balloons are popped up with foam squares. Added the die cut grass, stamped 'moving?', and finished the inside with the perfect sentiment! And there you have it!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out what the other members of Team Midnight Margaritas came up with! I hope you get some time this week to play along with the Up challenge at Drunken Stampers!

Smeared & Smudged DT Throwdow #4: Leather and/or Lace

Good morning my lovelies! My design team, the Drunken Stampers, is throwing down on the Smeared and Smudged Forum!  Barb G.Lynne, and myself have been selected this time to represent our team for Throwdown #4: Leather and/or Lace! Man, this challenge is BOUND to be interesting! LOL! Here's what I came up with:

Some close ups:

So, I tried a new technique (to me at least!), and made my own 'leather' using masking tape! I know, right?!  I found a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here. (Thanks Beate!) I re-purposed a Christmas candle and made a Halloween inspired leather sleeve for it. I also have two different types of lace on it. Both are white, but for the smaller lace that I used on the edges, I tea dyed it first to give it a more aged look! HA! I stamped the tomb stone, coffin, and skull on white card stock, rubbed walnut stain over the images and fussy cut. I used a red marker to add some color on the tombstone then glued them on the sleeve. I had this big red Bazzill Bauble for ever, and wanted to use it on the sleeve. See that bow? That's tied with black suede! Yeah baby!

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment! I'd love to hear from you! Please stop by my drunken sisters, Barb G. and Lynne to see what devilish deliciousness they dreamed up! Voting starts tomorrow on the Smeared and Smudged forum. I love it if you'd vote for Team Drunken Stampers!

Have a fantastic day!

Love you more than coupons....CTS#24

Hello everyone! I have another card to share today! This is based (loosely) on CAS(E) this Sketch #24:

Here's the inside:

and the sketch:

As soon as I saw this sketch, the only thing that came to mind was the vertical lines reminded me of a UPC code and the zig zag could be where a coupon started to get ripped out. LOL! Good thing Kim Hughes @ Paper Smooches can read my future mind! HA! I had the stamp set that was perfect for my vision! Instead of ripping the coupon, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the scissors. I used an X-Acto knife and cut the corner and adhered the scissors to look as if they started to cut out the coupon. (I curled the corner a bit too!) This is another sketch that I'm sure to be using again. I already have a few more ideas and will make those into cards soon!

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment! I love hearing from you!

Cute Drac...DS#124/CTD#238/MFTWSC120

Good Morning lovelies! It's Saturday, which means it's time for a new challenge at Drunken Stampers!

This week is based on the movie "Twilight". You can either make a project based on the movie title, use the theme, in this case, Creatures of the night, or BOTH! LOVE this! It's Team Bahama Mamas turn this week, but I couldn't resist playing along with them! Here's what I came up with:

Here is the inside:

Isn't he the cutest vampire? (Other than Edward, that is! LOL!) I stamped him on Strathmore water color paper then colored him with my Marvy Uchida markers. Wow, trying to color to make the cape look 'shiny' was a major task! I think it looks ok though. ☺ He was fussy cut then popped up on some foam squares. I stamped the bat on the blue panel then used a white Gelly Roll pen to add some highlights. Punched some clouds, die cut a circle for the moon and adhered. The cloud in front of the moon I popped up on foam squares. Finished the inside and called it a day!

I used the sketch from My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #120 and the colors from CTD#238.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you get a chance to play along with the Twilight challenge at Drunken Stampers! Have a great day!

Deepest Sympathy.../RS59

Good morning lovelies! I have a card I'd like to share with you today. It's based on Retro Sketch #59:

the inside:

Here is the sketch:

I liked the simplicity of this sketch and followed it pretty closely. Yes, another sympathy card, I just made one last week. They're not kidding when they say bad news travels in threes. Unfortunately, I just found out about a death in another friend's family, so I'll be making a card for her also.

Ok, enough depressing talk. Let me show you a couple pictures I took a little while ago. When I let the dog outside, I noticed all this grass and weeds lying on my deck table.

It wasn't there yesterday. Then I looked up:

Some bird decided that our umbrella would make a great place to build it's nest! LOL! I hope it's not too mad when I get rid of what he started to build!

That's it for now. I hope that you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Go Boldly.../CFC98, CTS23

Hello and happy Monday! (?) I wanted to share a card I made using two challenges: CAS-ual Fridays#98 and CAS(E) this Sketch #23:

Here are the challenges:

I combined the sketch with using glitter and Stickles and came up with this beauty! LOL! I pressed alternating widths of red tape on the main panel and by peeling first the 1/4" strips, added the silver glitter. After burnishing then tapping off the extra, I repeated the process on the 1/8" strips with the gold glitter. The rocket I stamped, colored and fussy cut. I stamped the alien then the rocket again over it. colored the window, cut that out and glued to the rocket. I added Stickles to the flame for more glittery sparkle. I even tried to stamp the 3 star cluster stamp in Stickles. It's hard to see - it looks more like glitter blobs in the background. (oh well!) I stamped the outline star stamp in white a few times also. Made a little banner and used some glittery brads then stuck that on with some foam squares. Pretty fun card to make, although I have glitter everywhere!

I usually finish the inside of the card, but I'm waiting to see what I'll use this for. I'm thinking it's either going to be a graduation card or a moving-to-a-new-home card. I have three nephews and a niece graduating High School in June and my older brother just put his house up for sale. I'll have to wait a bit to see how to finish it.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great rest of the day!

Liebster Award...I am humbled

Hello lovelies! I was recently honored to be the recipient of the Liebster Award from Jessi at OneCraftyMama this past week. Jessi is one of my fellow Drunken Stampers designated designers. She shares my obsession, I mean, my love of all things Paper Smooches and has a wicked sense of humor: very sarcastic, just like me! Is it any wonder why I adore her?! :)

This award was designed to promote blogs that have less than 200 followers. Once the award is accepted, the idea is to pay it forward to five other blogs you enjoy, encouraging others to visit, leave comments, and hopefully follow.

To accept the award: Thank the person who gave it to you and link back to their blog. Post the award on your blog. Give the award to five other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

Write a comment on their blog letting them know they have been nominated.

This was such a hard thing for me to do, since there are so many incredibly talented creative people in blogland! So after much teeth grinding, here are my five choices to pass the torch to:

Donna of Yellow Dog Greetings. One of my fellow designers at Drunken Stampers. She is always there to cheer me on when I doubt myself creatively, she has a wicked cool creative style, and also shares my sarcastic sense of humor!

Lynne of Scrapbook Lynne's. Yep, another one of my fellow designers at Drunken Stampers. She is such a happy person, always smiling (yes you can tell that just by reading her blog!) and has a love of life that is as big as the universe. Her creative talent is off the charts!

Gaylynn of Neat Nook Creations. She has a great personality and truly loves making cards to give to her friends and family. I really admire her clean and graphic creations!

LindaLou of Our Mush Push. Ok, this woman is a triple threat of creativity: she's a card maker. She shares recipes (man do they look good!). She reviews movies! How cool is that!

Happy Dance of Gotta do the Happy Dance. She's a spunky Grandma with a heart of gold and has a great love of card making!

So there you have it. Please go visit their blogs, leave comments, and follow them! They deserve it! Have a great day!


It's All Good.../MM288

Pssst! If you are looking for my Drunken Stamper's post, just click here!

Good Morning lovelies! I hope you all are enjoying the gorgeous Spring weather we are finally getting (if you also happen to live on the east coast, that is! ☺) It seemed like we went from Winter straight to Summer last week with near 90 degree temps, then back down to 60's and 70's the last couple days. I think Mother Nature got her seasons mixed up a bit! LOL!

I just realized that talking of Summer is a great intro for the card I want to share with you! LOL! I made this based on the Mojo Monday's #288 challenge.

the inside:

and the sketch:

Yep, had to go with a beach theme! I was trying to figure out what to use for this sketch, but when I saw this banner garland, that's all it took! It's amazing how one element can dictate how you design your card. The stamp I used also had a beach umbrella, but I masked that off to fit the small circle element. (after stamping 3 times on the white, kraft and DP, fussy cutting and gluing down) That aqua panel is from a pack of pre-embossed card stock that came with the paper collection I used. (Lucy's Crab Shack by Bazzill Basics) I took a nail file to it so the image showed up a bit more.

Well, that's it for right now. It's looking to be another beautiful day out. I think I may be out there doing some yard work to get ready to plant flowers! Yay! I hope that you have a great rest of the weekend! Thanks for stopping by and stay crafty my friends!

Drunken Stampers #123 - Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

Happy Saturday my peeps! It's time for a new challenge at Drunken Stampers! This week is challenge #123: Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow!

I know, right?! This term is all about the movies. You can create a project based on the movie title, or the theme. (In this case - Steampunk!) Or you can go all out and combine BOTH! This week is Team Midnight Margaritas turn. Here is my take on this challenge:

and the inside:

I know, I went with my usual corny/punny sentiment on the inside of the card. But I just love doing that! LOL! So, I've been trying out digi stamps lately, and I'm happy to say I'm pleased with them. This little cutie is by Simply Betty Stamps and is called Steampunk Rio. (She came with the dirigible and skull key images also: BONUS!)  After printing out the image, I baked it with a heat tool so the inkjet ink wouldn't smear when I colored it. I found the perfect paper to use for this card (Love those gears!) and also embossed a card stock panel with a diamond plate design, then inked it so the diamonds were more visible. Added some silky ribbon and a few mini gears and it was done!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you play along this week with the Drunken Stampers! Make sure you check out the individual blogs of Team Midnight Margaritas to see what fabulous creations they dreamed up! Have a fantastic day!

Happy and Sad....

Hello and Happy Friday! This is my second post today after misplacing my mojo all week. Sheesh! I want to share a couple cards with you that I made, not for any current challenge, but for specific people in mind. Here's the first card:

and the inside:

I used an older sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch (#15), for the front of the card. I just love this sketch and will probably use it again from time to time. Just love the simplicity of it! I have a niece who is expecting her second child in July and knows she's having a girl, thus the girly card! I got these Tim Holtz hanger clips a while ago and thought it would look cute to hang the little dress on it! Love how this turned out!

Ok, now for card #2:

the inside:

On the flip side, I have a friend who just lost his mother and wanted to make a sympathy card for him and his family. After cutting my main panel to size, I masked and stamped the sentiment first. I then used a bunch of different stamps from the Recollections set to stamp around the edges. Some are stamped directly from the ink pad, some are stamped off first on some scrap paper before stamping on the panel. I stamped the butterfly on some more designer paper, fussy cut, adhered and added some rhinestones for the body. Finished the inside and was done.

It was a strange day. I made the baby card, then about an hour after finishing it, found out about my friends mother passing and immediately made his card. I don't know how to feel about that. It's like polar opposites.  Or some kind of zen thing. I don't know.

Well, anyway, I'm off to go make a salad and top off my wine glass. ☺ I hope that you have a great evening and a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Go to your happy place/PS Sparks Designer Draft challenge April 2013

Hello my lovelies! It's been almost a week since I last posted. I apparently misplaced my mojo, but never fear. I found it hiding under the pile of paper, stamps, embellies, etc. that were piled on my craft desk! Once I cleaned everything off and put things in their place, I was once again able to create! LOL! This card I made for the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge: Designer Draft:

and the inside:

Here is the sketch this is based loosely on:

I'm so ready for my annual girls week trip at the beach that I just HAD to use the Get Outta Town set for this card! LOL! Plus I also have a wreath on my back door made of silk hibiscus flowers so it was a no brainer! Pretty simple set up: I stamped the flower in 3 coordinating papers (recent winnings from the Create blog from Northridge Publishing. Thanks NP!), fussy cut and adhered to the Hexilong panel. It might be hard to see but I sponged some Broken China Distress ink on the white panel (with the die still in place so I got a white border around it!) The middle flower is popped up with a foam square. The inside was put together pretty simply. Stamped the sentiment. Stamped the flower again, fussy cut and adhered to the lower right corner. Done! Oh! I forgot to say that I used Smooch in Sundance to color the stamens. Ok. Now done!

Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for another post shortly! I hope that you have a wonderful evening and stay crafty my friends!

Enjoy this day.../PS Sparks challenge:Trend Watch

Hi all and happy Sunday! I have a card to share that I made for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Trend Watch. (Yes, I know it ends in a couple of hours. If there's one thing I excel at, it's procrastination!)

the inside:

Here is the inspiration:

I die cut the frame using Paper Smooches Duo Dies 3, doodled on it and adhered to the card base. I stamped the butterfly a couple times on water color paper then 'water colored' them with different colors of Glimmer Mist. Once dry, I fussy cut and adhered inside the frame. Yep, I got inky! VERY fun to do! Love trying new things! Stamped the sentiment and added a couple rhinestones. Finished the inside and done! A very CAS card.

That's all for now. I've got more crafting to do, yay! Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!

Happy Wednesday morning to you! I think Spring finally grew a backbone and is kicking Winter out on it's butt! Going to be in the low 50's today, but the temperature goes up everyday from now on! (at least for the next week!) BONUS! I can't wait to put away my winter coat, hat, and gloves! Bring on the Spring weather!

Today I'd like to share a card I made for both the Simply Betty Stamps March Fanpage Challenge and also for Mojo Mondays #287:

And the inside of my card:

Here is the sketch:

Ok, now that you've snorted coffee/tea/cola out of your nose, here are some details. ☺ For the Simply Betty Stamps challenge, she is very generous and gives you the digi image to use for free, plus some prompts. For this month (March, which this challenge ends on Friday), the image is Medusa and you have to create a card using black, cream and your choice of one color. I chose green. Now, in order to get the free image you DO have to join the group first, then request the image be emailed to you. And most importantly, you have to use the stamp for the challenge it's for. (It's only fair - she's GIVING you a free digi!) No problem there! I'm very new to using digi stamps. (This is only my second card I've made using one! You'll have to wait to see what I did using another Simply Betty Stamp! - future post)

Coloring hair is NOT my strength. I spent a good amount of time the last couple of days researching how to add highlights/lowlights to hair. Watched countless tutorials on YouTube. Stalked blogs. Really took a good look at other artists' work to get a sense of how to color. I got to tell ya, I am THRILLED at how well my snakes turned out! (Yep, patting myself on the back!)

So then, I had to come up with a sentiment for the inside. This kept me up for quite a while as I lay in bed, pondering what to do. Then it hit me! And I laughed out loud. And woke up my husband and the dog! I was so excited that I couldn't go to sleep. (I did eventually, but I'm barely functioning this morning.) All hail to Caffeine!

So there you have it. I'm going to go and admire my card some more! LOL! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Waving Hello.../RS#57

Good Morning and happy Tuesday! I thought for sure Spring was finally here. We've been enjoying warmer weather these last few days, but that didn't last. We are back in the 30's this morning. BLEH!!! So, to give Spring a not too subtle nudge, I made a card that is all about warm weather. This is based off the Retro Sketches #57 sketch:

And the inside:

Here is the sketch:

Except for swapping out one of the larger rectangles for a sailboat, I stuck to the sketch pretty closely. I made the white wave paper using the wave stamp in the set and three different colors of ink. The sailboat is paper pieced using bits of scrap paper. I even Googled how to tie that knot in the cord! LOL!

I hope you get to play along with this challenge, because it's a fun sketch to try! Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a fabulous day!
