LPS Monday

LPS_NeighPony_tbuIt is challenge time over at the {Little Paper Shop} blog again! This week we have an awesome sketch by Cindy Haffner (check out her blog here) – isn’t it the cutest? I inadvertently left out the long vertical piece on mine, but of well – it was just a guideline, right???

I just think this farmyard set that LPS makes is so stinkin’ adorable! This one reminds me of Butterscotch, my daughter’s animatronic pony. No real ones for her yet! He just looks so cuddly! And the sentiment cracks me up – don’t ask me why. It just tickles my funny bone in the right kind of way, lol.

Cindy_Haffner_LPS_2Here’s a copy of Cindy’s awesome sketch! I don’t think mine turned out too bad – I am bothered that I forgot the vertical piece because I’m silly like that. I might have to make another card to make it up to myself!

I colored my image with Copics and used Versafine Jet Black ink to stamp it with. I used Nesties to cut out my ovals. The dp came from Jacksonbelle’s store, but I don’t know what line it is – oops!

I hope everyone had a relaxing Mother’s Day yesterday, and I hope you all have a wonderful Monday (as far as Mondays go ;))

Etsy Sunday (yes, I’m a day late)

Etsy_Fairy_tbuI didn’t get a chance to post my Etsy card yesterday, because I was out of town all da. I had lunch with my mom, and then went to see my mother-in-law in the afternoon. So, I’m posting it today. My card is based on the sweeest little ballerina fairy from this weeks’ shop, I used the colors in it to inspire my card – it’s kind of a stretch, but somethimes my imagination leads me astray, lol.il_430xN.53240124

See – isn’t she just the most darling thing? She seems so carefree and happy. I am seriously thinking about ordering on for my daughter’s room – it has the perfect shade of green in it! I used a Stampin’ Up st I forgot I had on my card, and am so thrilled I found it in the drawer! The fairies wings are painted with Pixie Dust Shimmerz Blingz, and everything else is colord with Copics.

I sponged around the edges with Pale Plum ink and added the sentiment in the oval punches to the top. It took me a little while to decide on the placement of that, but in the end I chose front and center!

Have a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY everyone!

Color Combo Monday

color-challenge-2This is the fun color combo issued for this week’s challenge over at the LPS blog! How cute is it?

I immediately knew what I wanted to do with this color combo – and I knew I had the perfect dp for it! Thata was totally exciting. I left my layout simple, so both the stamps and dp could shine on their own. lps_asiancc_tbu

So, here it is. What do you think? I used the Inspired by Asia set by {Little Paper Shop}. You have to get it – it’s on sale for $10.08!!!!!! How could you not get it at that price?????

My dp is by Prima, and is it not drop dead goergeous? I hated to cover it up with such a large panel, lol.

I do love the image panel though – I adore corner stamps. They have the potential to add so much to a card!  To finish it up, I put large photo corners in opposite corners, and did some quick faux stitching.

Ok, I’m off to clean my stmp room. Somehow, even though I have a good sized table, I  only have about ten inches of workspace. I swear I don’t know how it happenend!taylorsig25

My Last Twinkling Tuesday….

mttsc14And my sweet little one is our Guest Twinkie today! I told her she had to pick one green, and then anyother other colors she wanted. After *MUCH* discussion, she settled on Garden Green, Close to Cocoa, and Whisper White. I’m so proud of her! For a three year old, she grasps the concept of matching very well!

emerald-angelHere is what she and I came up with. Of course, she picked the image, the dp, the label shape, and had to have a trinket hanging from the ribbon.  We filed the edges of the dp, to add a bit more white.

I stepped down from the Twinkling Tuesday’s team because there are quite a few people on it now, and I felt my absence would not be as noticed. I have a lot of DT work to do,and Tuesday is one of my busiest days. I will miss everyone so much!!

Another New Release!!!!

smallthingsI am totally in love with this set! I have never run across a Mother Teresa quote that doesn’t give me pause, and I think about it for awhile. They always touch my heart. Well, in this se, there are two!!!! I made this card in the Joy Fold style – I love to make those!

And something about the colors are so soothing, and springy. Love it!

Want a chance to WIN this set? Head on over to the LPS blog and leave a comment and your name could be drawn for this gorgeous new set! {Blessings} will be released tomorrow, Tuesday, along with {Bound by the Heart} at the Little Paper Shop’s website.

An Etsy Inspired Saturday

sunnybirthday1This week’s Etsy shop was TR Mack Studio whhich is full of excellent prints. They all have such brilliant colors and movement to them! My choice was easy though, because I had alread picked this card out for my stepmom’s birthday (the paper, I mean).

So away I went with the Lizzie Anne Damask set, lots of colored pens, Red Riding Hood ink, and a sponge. I don’t know that I captured the spirit of my inspiration piece – but this sure was a fun card to make!

Oops – I forgot to post!

chixlittleThis week the LPS team is challenging everyone to use digi images – and there is a prize involved!! Don’t have any? Go here, and get some super cute ones from LPS!

I made two large oval scallops, and used the cropadile to join them together with a large eyelet. I slid the small oval just under the eyelet, and adhered it. My chick egg is cut out and mounted on dimensionals. He’s colored with Copics, and there is Pixie Dust Simmerz Blings on his shell.

Sorry for the extra late post today!
