Uninhibited....

Good Morning! Here it is Wednesday already!  Time just flies by!  I have a class down the mountain this morning so I'm off and running!  Before I leave I wanted to share some creations that my Shascade folks made!  Remember, they are mentally challenged...but they've given me a different perspective on challenged...they are so UNINHIBITED!  I love this class so much...I thought I was helping them by volunteering, but really they have given me way more than I can ever give them!  

Last month we worked with the Stampin' UP! watercolor pencils and aqua painters.  What I want you to look at is how they put their colors together! Their choices are not always my choices.  I remember wanting to fix my kids artwork for them...but that's a NO NO!!!  So I don't do anything to change what they are doing as long as they are using the product correctly (and they always do)

Here's what they created....



Isn't it BEAUTIFUL!  If only we could rid ourselves of our inhibitions & just be!!

Tuesday’s Tip - Waterfront Series Tropical Sunset

Good Morning everyone! WOW...it's cold where I live and I'm heading to a baseball game...on the coast!  It's in a GROOVY little town called Ferndale...I LOVE it!  I'm going early because it has some FUN places to shop! It's a 2 1/2 hour drive so I better get busy!  I hope you have a TERRIFIC day and are inspired to create by today's video!



Here's a photo of the finished card in case you want to save it!  The colors I used for the sky are Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.  The mountains are stamped in Soft Suede and the palm trees are stamped in Memento Black Ink!  The water is Island Indigo and Perfect Plum! 

Now for the measurements .  My Whisper White cardstock  is 8 1/2" X 5 1/2".  The stamped image is 3 1/2 " X 4 1/2 piece of Shimmery White cardstock.  After stamping I adhered it to a 3 5/8" X 4 5/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Last, I attached it to a 3 3/4" X 4 3/4" piece of Island Indigo cardstock.

For the inside of the card I stamped a small image in the corner of a 3 3/4" X 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock and matted it onto a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Island Indigo cardstock.  

Isn't it a BEAUTIFUL card!  

Thanks bunches for stopping by!  I'm gonna hit the road now!  Have FUN playing with your Waterfront stamp set!  If you need one go to my store and SHOP!

Masculine Card Swap

Good Morning to all! Gosh...it's a BEAUTIFUL day today...cold, but BLUE SKIES...YAY!!!  I had a great spin class this morning!  I teach on Fridays and my husband is working 4-10's during daylight savings time so he came and took my class with the rest of the group!  It was a full class with eight of us!  It was really FUN having my hubby there, albeit a little bit intimidating!  

Last month I hosted/participated in two swaps, one was masculine themed and one was spring themed. Today I'd like to share the MASCULINE themed cards with you!  I shared mine back on March 29th (for details) but I'll share it here as well...(at the bottom)! I hope you're inspired to create one or two!





These are some GREAT cards don't you think?  I wish more ladies would have participated, but it was a busy time for a lot of people AND an intimidating theme!

Well...I'm off to a baseball game in McArthur, about 2 1/2 hours away so I'm gonna say THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by and hit the road!  Enjoy your Friday and your weekend!!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Good morning stampin' friends!  Top of the morning to you!  I woke up to snow on the mountain tops this morning!  It's SO BEAUTIFUL!  I have to go down the mountain to take my mother-in-law to the doctor so I'm really happy there isn't any snow at my house!  Hoping you have a terrific day!

I'm sharing another April class card with you today! I really wanted to showcase what you can do with designer paper...you've probably noticed that already with my other two cards!


This card has a Bermuda Bay card base that measures 5 1/2" X 8 1/2".  Instead of scoring it in the middle, I decided I wanted a fun fold and scored it at 2 1/8" and and 6 3/8".  Next I cut two panels from Picture Perfect Party 6" X 6" designer paper.  The panels measure 1 7/8" X 5 1/4".  This is the same designer paper pack that I used on the candle card a couple of days ago. You can make gobs of birthday cards with this paper! 

Next, I used my Layering Circles Framelits to cut a a Bermuda Bay Glimmer circle frame, I used a scalloped circle and a smaller circle inside of the scallop to make the frame.  You can't tell from this picture, but the stamped image slips into the sparkly frame.  I used the same circle framelit to cut another circle from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and my 1 3/4"circle punch to cut the sentiment circle from Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I added a couple of Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the B and the Y in Birthday and I also tied a bow around the glimmer frame using Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon.


Here's a photo of the card open so you can see how the sentiment circle slips into the scalloped circle frame.  It also shows that I added a scrap piece of the same designer paper that I used on the front of the card to the inside of the card.  It measures 3/4" X 4". 

I think is a super fun and cute birthday card!  I hope you'll find a few minutes to give it a try!



Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by!  Have a FUN day!

Wood Textures Masculine Card

Good morning everyone!  WOW...the morning's almost gone and I haven't gotten a thing done!  Well...a couple loads of laundry and I made my bed, but I wanted to be out in my workshop by now!  I hope your days is going smoother than mine!  

I'd like to share another card from my April monthly classes. It's a MASCULINE card! YAY! I have such a hard time with masculine cards, but I'm determined to make at least one a week! 

 I saw this card on Pinterest and decided it would be a good one to CASE (copy and share everything). I did change it up just a bit, the measurements, the sentiment and the ribbon, but that's it! I LOVE it!








Here's my take on it! It has a Basic Black card base with Wood Textures Designer Paper.  It's 6" X 6" and comes with 48 sheets.  A gal can make a bunch of masculine cards with 48 sheets...lots of mixing and matching FUN!  Anyway...my first layer is 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". Next (with scraps) I cut the two thin pieces.  The dark colored strip is 7/8" X 4" with a  1" X 4 1/8" Basic Black mat.  The light colored strip is 7/8" X 3" with a 1" X 3 1/8" Basic Black mat.  The sentiment is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set...it's a GREAT Happy Birthday! I stamped it onto a 1" X 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock and matted it onto a 1 1/8" X 3 5/8" piece of Basic Black cardstock.  I attached all three strip pieces with dimensionals and tied a piece of Linen Thread and Black Baker's Twine, into a bow, around the two wooden strips! I LOVE how it turned out and already have a birthday to use it for! YAY!!!

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by today!  I love sharing my creations with you and hope that you find inspiration here! Have a MARVELOUS day!

Tuesday's Tip - Waterfront Series....Desert Scene

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by today!  It's Tuesday's Tip time and I have a great video to share with you!  This weekend I am having a class centered around the Waterfront stamp set and I'm super excited! Here you'll see one of the cards we will be making!  I'm going to do a series of videos of projects created with the set! I hope you subscribe to my YouTube channel so you miss any!

Today's video will show you how to stamp a beautiful dessert scene! ENJOY!!




Here is the finished card and I also wanted to share the measurements of the layers!

My Whisper White cardstock  is 8 1/2" X 5 1/2".  The stamped image is 3 1/2 " X 4 1/2 piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  After stamping I adhered it to a 3 5/8" X 4 5/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Last, I attached it to a 3 3/4" X 4 3/4" piece of Cajun Craze cardstock.





Here is the inside of the card.  The first layer is a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock measuring 4" X 5 1/4" and the Whisper White stamped image measures 3 1/4" X 5".

After I stamped the inside I thought this would be really cool stamped on a Stitched Circle, maybe framed and added to a card front!  FUTURE PROJECT!



Well...thanks bunches for stopping by!  Have a great rest of your day!
