Make Today Beautiful Card

My new Newton’s Nook stamp sets were still on my craft table (ready to be put away), when I pulled out my *never been used* Lawn Fawn sunray coverplate die.

I had a Reese’s “You got peanut butter in my chocolate”, “no, you got chocolate in my peanut butter” moment.

The cut sunrays were staring at me, and the “make today beautiful” sentiment jumped out.

I added a few sequins, just to make the sunrise glint.

YAY!

Happy Friday!

Supplies:  Stamp – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn, sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Guess What? Chicken Butt Note Card

One of the offspring still says this to me!

I had trouble photographing this – the first photo I had the card taped shut, so you can see the chicken through the window. Overall gloomy day on Monday, the lighting was just never optimal.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Heidi Swapp, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens Brown (060), Carmine Red (022), Orange (070), Yellow (050), dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

What the Cluck Square Card

For this card, I pulled my inspiration from the rooster character, HeiHei, from “Moana”. I think he is lovely and clumsy (and I can relate!).

Back in November, someone in my life took a clumsy, awful spill. Injury ensued. But this card would have been perfect!

I used a Gina K. Designs wreath builder template inside my MISTI to get the placement perfect.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White. Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, inks – Copic BG15, BG23, R14, YR14, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

People Issues Blended Card

I ordered the 2nd set of snarky sentiments to go with this Essentials by Ellen Voices in My Head lady. And I had a day last week when I needed someone to send this card to ME.  😉

I struggle with the background for her. This time, I blended some Distress Oxide Ink over her (she was covered with masking paper).

In case you are wondering, the inspiration for the gray stripy hair is MY HAIR. I have been growing out my hair color (18 months now – still have some colored tips on one side – the longer side of the side part), and I now have brown & gray stripy hair. Not unattractive – I am glad I have muscled through the awkward stages with no emergency highlights or super short pixie and made it to the other side!

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Copic E21, E23, E37, E53, W3, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide Inks Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, VersaFine Onyx Black, Vintage Sepia, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Green and Turquoise Rawr-some Note Card

Adding this to the “animal” section of my card basket.

Supplies:  Stamps – Lawn Fawn, My Favorite Things, paper – Doodlebug Designs Boos & Brews, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Desert Storm, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise (retired), inks – Copic B002, YG0000, YG25, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.

World Card Making Day 2019!

Hello!

I didn’t know if I would have time to participate in World Card Making Day – but I did!  (it’s noon & I am still in my pajamas…priorities, right?)

I admit I watercolored the carnations last night (so it would dry). The background, sentiment, assembly were all done today.

This card is leaving with a batch of brownies in the morning.

Have a great day! Let’s all go get inspired!
