Fun in blogland!!

Okay, since I'm not able to do any stamping at the moment, I've taken to doing gallery- and blog-surfing (aka blurfing). My head is so full of ideas and goodies to do it's about to explode!! Can't wait 'til I can push down on some rubber again!!

First up: BLOG CANDY AT RYANN'S!!! Ryann is one of my Unity forum pals, and she's got some great candy on her site...you have until Friday (10/31) to go get yourself signed up!

MORE BLOG CANDY at SHIMMERZ! I stumbled on this website during my Unity forum-stalking/blurfing, and the owner there is holding a candy giveaway of her newest colors, also open until Friday! (Shimmerz is a sparkly, glimmery kind of watercolor medium, in case you're like me and hadn't heard of them yet....the colors she has are sooooooooo yummy!)

I'm definitely going to be doing this December Daily Album project by Ali Edwards. She's showing how to put it together now (on her blog all this week) so that when December rolls around, all you have to do is slip in some photos and journaling to have a wonderful reminder of Christmas. That woman is a genius...such a great way to catch the spirit of the season while you're actually *in* the spirit of the season.

And, last but certainly not least...I just found Elvie Studios blog from a post by Jessica Rose (one of Unity's stamp artists that, f.y.i., has some fabulous stuff in her Etsy store and some great freebie templates on her blog). Elvie Studios has some gorgeous multi-media inspiration that makes me want to take up painting and sewing! She seems to do a bit of everything...card-making, scrapping, book-making, etc., and she does it well. Definitely worth a look-see! Love this little dream house and this mixed media tic-tac-toe hanging.

So, what's inspiring you??

Hope you're having a great week! Thanks for stopping by!

Feeling a bit better...

Thanks for all the well-wishes and prayers! My surgery on Thursday (to have my gallbladder removed) went very well, and I'm on the road to recovery. I had a set-back Friday night at dinner, when I caught Jonathan (my 2-year-old) as he was about to fall out of his chair...THAT hurt! But I'm slowly feeling better each day, and will be taking off all the bandages today.

I wanted to show you all the cards I've received from friends, so here they are! (I'm hoping to resume some kind of crafting soon, but can't use enough force yet to even stamp an image, so please be patient with this poor little invalid! *wink*) Sorry about the strange light/funky shadows on some of these...

From Jonathan, my 2-year-old (with help from Grandma Chris):

From Daniel, my 4-year-old (with NO help...it's a rocket):

From Grandma Chris (aka Razzleberry) and Grandpa Bernie (my DH's parents... they're the boys grandparents, not *my* grandparents!):

From my sweet neighbor and stamping friend, Shannon: (notice the Unity stamps? Yeah, I take all the credit for that!! ....Sorry, Jay!)

From the amazing Melinda (aka PassionFruit):

From the sweet Miss Jennifer Taylor (aka JenMarie on SCS):

and a close-up, since the first shot doesn't show the glossy on the umbrella, or the little puddle she's standing in!
And thank you also, JenMarie, for the stamped images and embossed goodies! {Love} them!

Okay, I'm headed back to bed...catch you later! Thanks for stopping by!

Wednesday Challenge #9!

Today's Unity Customer Challenge is from Lori (ltechler on SCS), and is a 'Recipe Challenge'. We had to use 1) something clear...acetate, ghost shapes, clear buttons, Glossy Accents/Crystal Effects, etc.; 2) Ribbon; and 3) Something from our latest Unity order.

My 'something clear' is the little clear layered flower that I created using my Cuttlebug, flower dies, and the backing off of a package of embellishments (I had to add an extra shim to get enough force to punch through that, and thought I was about to crack my plate!). The ribbon is obvious, I used that black gingham from my stash. The something from my latest Unity order isn't from an order at all! That adorable little bee is actually a stamp I WON a couple Hip Hop Thursdays ago in the Unity Forum....so be sure to check it out!! The wonderful Miss Angela will post a thread in the forum at 10am CT, (that's 8am on the west coast, or 11am on the east coast), and start the blog hop from the Unity Stamp Company blog.

If you'd like to play along with today's Customer Challenge, be sure to post your creation in the Challenge Thread so we can all see and leave you some love! And be sure to check out the other Unity Junkies' blogs for more creations!

On a personal note, could I ask for your prayers tomorrow? I'm having laparoscopic surgery in the morning to have my gallbladder removed. It's a short, 'easy' surgery, but I'd still love your prayers, and prayers for my family while they deal with a recovering wife/mama! Thank you in advance!! *smiles*

Have a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by!

Paper: Real Red, Summer Sun, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla cardstock (SU!); flower dp (Bo Bunny)

A HHT Kid Challenge, and a card for the Juices...

First up: a card for this challenge, posted by Jeanne S in the Unity Forum on SCS. The challenge was to "Make a card using Unity Stamps that you could give to a child", and this is what I came up with:
The first thing I thought of was my new October KOTM from Unity, and the adorable images, but none are particularly 'kid'. Then I saw these adorable pumkins, and thought of the nickname my dad has for me, and inspiration hit! I started with a Pumpkin Pie card base, and stamped 'Cutie Pie' from Mix-Up of Cuteness all over the background. Then I spelled out my 'Pumpkin' using flocked letter stickers on a scrap of Very Vanilla, and stamped 'hi there' to make my sentiment. I cut a larger piece of Sage Shadow, and scalloped the top edge with my corner rounder. For the image, I stamped the pumpkins on a scalloped circle, and colored them in with my blender pens. I added two more scalloped circles (with the centers cut out using my Coluzzle) to the top, popping up the Wild Wasabi layer with foam tape. I tied on the ribbon, then added the image piece over the top, using more foam tape to adhere it to the card base.

This next card is for tonight's Creative Juices meeting. Again, the main inspiration was my October KOTM, and the colors of the adorable buttons:

The card base is a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Wild Wasabi, folded in half to make the A2 size. I stamped the image on a scrap of Whisper White, and used that to size the Apricot Appeal and Pink Pirouette layers, making them longer to accomodate the buttons. I colored in the image with my blender pens, and sponged the edges with Pretty in Pink. The white layer and the pink layer are popped up using foam tape. I tied on the ribbon, stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner using Wild Wasabi ink, and added the buttons with Mini Glue Dots.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used (Pumpkin card):
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Sage Shadow, Very Vanilla cardstock (SU!)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Versamark (Tsukineko); Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, and Chocolate Chip (SU!)

WOW! and Unity Christmas Swaps

Have you checked out Angela's Watch out Wednesday post yet?? Go look, then come back! I'll wait...


ISN'T THAT SO COOL??!?!?!? Yeah, I'm on Cloud 9...and I think I'll be here awhile! *smiles* Thank you so much, Angela, for featuring me on your blog (and for making me sound so good)!! You are just the sweetest, and I love love love Unity! (and just so you know, Angela, this: "{I think I may have to do that, MICHELLE! - I miss EDWARD!}" is exactly why I decided to re-read the series! *wink*)

Thank you to everyone who has given me such sweet comments on the WOW feature, too! I love 'hangin' with you all on SCS (and at Juices!), and so appreciate all the love you've given me! {{hugs!}}

OK, now back to our regularly scheduled program! I'm showing the card I made for the Unity Christmas Swap, so if you don't want to see it, look away now...

I think it came out super cute, but I wish I hadn't done something where *everything* was paper-pieced! I had to make 6 of these, and was covered with glitter! LOL I started with a base of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Soft Sky cardstock, which I scored at 3 1/2" and 2" to make an off-center gate-fold A2 base. I layered on a panel of Wild Wasabi that was 3 3/4" x 5", then a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" panel of Pink Pirouette, then a 3 3/8" x 4 5/8" panel of Whisper White. I stamped the WW base with 'silent night' from Bitty Christmas Tags, and accented it with a Stickles-covered pink brad. (The Wild Wasabi is only adhered to the card base on the left side of the fold, so that the card opens in the middle.)

I stamped the owl on Soft Sky cardstock, and the tree three times on Jersey Shore dp. I stamped the swirl from July's KOTM journaling block on Whisper White using my Essential Glue Pad, and sprinkled white glitter over the top for 'snow'. I also stamped the scarf onto Pink Pirouette with the glue pad, and used pink glitter on it.

Then, I cut everything out...that took awhile. Wish I'd considered that I'd be making 6 of these before I started!

I assembled the scene, using foam tape under the 'snow', two of the trees, and the owl to give everything a bit of dimension. I hope my swap group likes them!

Thank you for stopping by! And thank you again to Angela, AJ, the Unity crew, and all the Unity Junkies for making me feel so special today!! {{BIG HUGS!}}

Supplies used:
Paper: Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White cardstock, and Jersey Shore dp (SU!)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black and Essential Glue Pad (Tsukineko)
Stamps: July KOTM '...it's the Little Things", Giggle Grove, Bitty Christmas Tags (Unity Stamp Company); Cold Play (SU!)
Other: White glitter (Stampenous!); pink glitter (Martha Stewart Crafts); Stickles (Ranger); brad (Making Memories); foam tape (3M); *really good pair of spring-loaded comfort-grip scissors* (Fiskars)

Unity's Hip Hop Hubby Challenge!

That's right...today it was the hubbies' turn!! (Unity Hip Hop Hubby Challenge, UHC01) Philip made this 'treasure map' over the past couple of days using my Unity stamps, a Stamp-a-ma-jig, walnut ink, and a calligraphy pen. Didn't it turn out great? I love the medallion he created from the Everlasting Romance stamp, custom-colored to get only the scroll work. He did a wash over the paper with diluted walnut ink to get the aged look, and used walnut ink for the calligraphy writing.

Here are some pictures of Philip doing the stamping with the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig:
I'll be back later to post my Christmas swaps (this week's major project!), and hopefully a masculine card for the wives' portion of the Hubby Challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!

A Happy Combination

Why in the world do I wait for an hour before the deadline to make a card?? I think it must harken back to school, when I was always working for a deadline and seemed to be more focused when I was short on time. Anyway, I used two Unity Stamp kits (Daisy Days and August's KOTM) to make this card for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration (CI25):

I started with a 4 1/4" square card base in Ballet Blue, and stamped one of the flower images from Daisy Days in Versamark on it. Then I added a strip of Ruby Red, with one edge scalloped using my corner rounder, and topped that off with a strip of So Saffron, stamped with the swirl from Daisy Days in Versamark, and tied on a piece of Certainly Celery grosgrain. For my main 'image' panel, I used the quote from last month's KOTM (designed by Jessica Rose ...{love} her designs!) stamped in Ruby Red on Whisper White. I trimmed the panle close to the image, and adhered it to another panel of Whisper White using foam tape, then adhered all of *that* with foam tape to the card base I had 'built'.

This is also my card for Mattie...please check out JenMarie's blog for the full details (and see today's earlier post). *smiles*

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used:
Paper: Ballet Blue, Ruby Red, So Saffron, and Very Vanilla (SU!)
Ink: Ruby Red (SU!); Versamark (Tsukineko)
Stamps: Daisy Days and August's KOTM 'Remember Happiness' (Unity Stamp Company)
Other: Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon (SU!); foam tape (3M)

Hip Hop Stitching Challenge! and a request....

Jeanne (aka Jeanne S) posted a challenge yesterday for Hip Hop Thursday to make a card with stitching on it, and this is what I came up with: I was COVERED with pink glitter by the time I finished cutting out those 3 flowers! (and, for the record, the ribbon matches very well IRL, even though it doesn't look like it in the photo).

I started with a Wild Wasabi card base (4 1/4" x 11, folded in half to make a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" A2-sized card), and added an embossed piece of white cardstock, which I hand-stitched, using a Bazzill In Stitchz Flourishes template to pierce my design first. Then I stamped my sentiment and the three flowers onto a scrap of Whisper White, using my *new* Essential Glue Pad, and sprinkled with pink glitter. I adhered a glittered chipboard frame from Making Memories onto the sentiment, then cut it out and re-punched the holes. I threaded the satin ribbon through the holes and attached it to the card (and the three flowers) using foam tape.

Note: The ribbon, you may have noticed, is tied around the card and through the fold on the left side. When I want to do that (it usually ends up that way because I don't often plan my cards before-hand), I just take a tiny sliver out of the fold with my scissors, matching the width of the ribbon. That's a trick I learned from Kristina Werner's blog videos...that girl is FULL of good info!!

Now for my request: JenMarie is offering up blog candy to anyone willing to make a card for her friend's daughter, who has Juvenile Diabetes, and an additional chance to win if you also donate to the JDRF and their upcoming Walk to Cure Diabetes. Our very good friends have a son (age 4) with Type 1 Diabetes, and I know how difficult it makes even everyday things like going to a playdate. Would you go check out JenMarie's post, leave some love, and maybe make a card for Mattie? Thank you in advance! {{hugs}}

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Supplies used:
Paper: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi (SU!); embossed white panel (unknown)
Ink: Essential Glue Pad (Tsukineko)
Stamps: Daisy Days (Unity Stamp Company); All Year Cheer I (SU!)
Other: glitter chipboard label holder (Making Memories); pink glitter (Martha Stewart Crafts); Flourishes In Stitchz template (Bazzill); foam tape (3M); ribbon (Michael's); green thread (unknown)

IC148 Harrilu Butterflies

Three posts in one day! Can you believe it?! Not something you should get used to, but it's been one of those wonderful, creative sorts of days *smiles*

This card is one for Saturday's Inspiration Challenge (IC148). The challenge was to use one of the *adorable* tees at Harrilu as inspiration for a card. I chose one of the examples in the actual challenge, this tee called 'Butterflies':
I love the graphic look of the designs on this website...I may be doing another card for this challenge. Here's my card:
I started with a standard A2 card base in Pink Pirouette. I stamped one of the trees from Tiny Trinity in black onto Basic Black cardstock three times, and cut out the top portions to mimic the shaped of the leaves. I also stamped this butterfly from Unity's August KOTM twice in Real Red on Real Red cardstock, and cut them out. I used a ZIG Writer and a french curve to draw the stems for the leaves onto the card base, then adhered the 'leaves'. After deciding where to put the butterflies, I lightly drew in some curling flight paths with a pencil, then pierced along the lines and 'faux stitched' with a red ZIG writer. I stamped the sentiment (a portion of a stamp from the Unity September KOTM) in Real Red onto a scrap of Whisper White, then cut it into a strip and cut a dart into one end, then added a red epoxy brad to the other end. I attached the sentiment strip and the butterflies with some foam tape, and called it 'DONE!'.

It's amazing how these Inspiration Challenges seem to stretch me. I can look at my SCS Gallery, and pick out exactly which ones were IC cards, though I think they still have my 'style'. What do you think? What stretches you?

Thanks for stopping by (again)! Be sure to scroll down to see the Unity Wednesday Challenge card, and (some of) the specials and goodies Angela is offering up tomorrow for HHT!

Supplies Used:

Double-Challenge Unity USC7 Thank You!

It's WEdnesday, and that means Unity Challenge and Customer Blog Hop!! Be sure to check out this thread to see all the great creations! This week's challenge is from Jessica (jezirus) and is to make a non-A2 sized card..."non-A2 card... tall and skinny, square,big, small, round, whatever, just NOT A2 sized." So I decided to make a round one....
I started by cutting a Kiwi Kiss card base with the largest circle from my Coluzzle (leaving just a bit at the fold). Then I cut a Confetti Cream circle with the second largest circle. I stacked a strip of Tangerine Tango onto a 1/4" wider strip of Chocolate Chip, then cut them with the largest circle to match the card base. I adhered everything to the Kiwi Kiss base, added some Making Memories chipboard letters, and the butterfly from Unity's September KOTM (which was stamped in chocolate and then sponged with Pumpkin Pie), popped up on dimensionals. I tied on a BOW in satin ribbon, and then decided to make a matching envelope, since the card is just about 4 1/4" round. I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and punched all the way through the envelope, then lined it with a 1 1/4" strip of Kiwi Kiss, adhered everywhere but where the punch-out is. (Does that make sense? I'll try to find JulieHRR's instructions and give you the link)

Make sure you check out the other challenge girls' cards, and GO PLAY!! Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies Used:
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Confetti Cream, and Very Vanilla cardstock (SU!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie (SU!)
Stamps: Butterfly from September KOTM (Unity Stamp Company)
Other: chipboard alpha (Making Memories); foam tape (3M); satin ribbon (Club Wedd by Target); butterfly punch (Martha Stewart Crafts); make-up sponge

More craft bazaar items....part 3

Here are the last two projects to share with you. Both are wire-working examples. The first is a standing angel:
I've made MANY angels over the years, and they are easily the best sellers I've ever had a craft shows (and highly requested by friends). Typically I make ornaments, and thread seed beads on the 'filler' wires to add some sparkle. This one has an integral stand, and is approximately 8" tall. Each one is entirely unique, because I don't work from a pattern when I make the angels, unlike all of the other designs I've done.

Usually, I draw a pattern on paper, and use that to guide my wire-bending, holding the shape to the paper as I work, such as for this Amish heart-in-hand symbol ornament:
This is one of my favorites, and is also the symbol I chose for the stamp I carved for the back of my cards. The symbol is one the Amish use as a reminder: "Hands to work, Hearts to God". This is one of the few designs I've ever done that actually requires soldering, which my husband has always been kind enough to do for me (I can solder, but it's not as neat as he does...thanks, honey!)

For those of you in the area, since I've been asked, the craft bazaar is at 415 N. Hart, off of Fesler in Santa Maria, near Fesler school. The hours are: Thursday 11am-6pm, Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-6pm, and Sunday 11am-3pm. There are 15 other crafters with items there for sale, and many items (including all but a few of mine) are one-of-a-kind items that go quickly. SO, if you're in the Santa Maria area, it might be a good idea to get there Thursday.

Thank you for all the wonderful words and comments, and for sticking with me while I've not been doing my 'usual' crafting. *wink* Do come back tomorrow, though, as I'll have a card for the Unity Wednesday Challenge/Customer Hop! Thanks for stopping by!

More craft bazaar items....part 2

On to some polymer clay work... This is not something I've done recently, but are projects 'left over' from a craft fair two years ago. (In case you don't know, I've dabbled in just about every craft medium possible!). I enjoyed working with polymer clay, and love all the possibilities inherent in its makeup (which I have not even BEGUN to exploit). I'm thinking I may have to do something with polymer clay with my MOPS group, just to throw them off now that they think of me as 'the Stamping Craft Chick' *wink*

Anyway, onto the projects. This is a necklace made using instructions from the now off-air Carol Duvall show, from a project by the amazing Donna Kato:
(I'd give you a link, but I can't find it on the HGTV site or Donna Kato's site...I think it may not be archived any longer.)

From the scraps of the background I made for the pendants, I made several tiny pins to look like purses, with wire handles:

Next up are three sets of earrings. They all feature the same base design, a wire-worked chandelier base from a jig I made, but feature different semi-precious stones for the beads...Golden Jade for the first set, Sky Quartz for the second, and Black Obsidian for the third. I also have Turquoise and Blue Sodalite, but I figured you'd get the picture. (Did I mention I like to dabble in different mediums? Wire-working was one of the first I tried *wink*):

One more post of craft fair items to come...stay tuned!

More craft bazaar items....part 1

Okay, I have so much to show you, I think I'm going to have to split it up into 3 parts! For this first one, I'll show you the beaded jewelry. First up: a black/blue Mother of Pearl necklace with black obsidian glass beads (sorry for the funky lighting on all of these...took them in the early AM):
The closeup at the top is a bit better of a representation on the color of these MOP beads...mostly grays and black, with just a hint of blue like only sea shells seem to have. Love it.

The next one is mostly foil-lined red seed beads, with small vintage 'flower' spacers and a large vintage red bead for the pendant piece:
The third I just could NOT get a good picture of the entire necklace. For some reason the cracked-glass beads and the Mother of Pearl ovals confused the camera's auto-focus in the shots of the whole thing. It's a simple necklace without a pendant, though, so this close-up will give you as good an idea as any:
Love the deep charcoal tones of the MOP mixed with the silver seed beads and the clear cracked glass. I had forgotten how much I loved making jewelry... In some ways it is similar to card making (still dealing with composition and color choices and balance), but I missed the rhythm of the beading.

Thanks for stopping by!

Unity Challenge Wednesday #6!!

It's time for another Unity Challenge Wednesday! Today, Maggie gave us a sketch challenge, using this fantastic sketch:

Love it!! So many possibilities! This is the card I made today:

I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" card base of Bazzill cardstock (in Papaya, I think), folded in half to make a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card. Then I added a strip of striped 'darling' dp from Basic Grey's Sugared line, with the right edge scalloped using my corner rounder. Then I stamped the butterfly from Unity's September KOTM in Cranberry Crisp on white carstock, and again on 'Dreamsicle' from Basic Grey's Two Scoops paper line, and paper pieced the butterfly, using Dimensionals. I adhered the glittered frame to the white, cut around the shape, and attached it to the card with foam tape. Then I stamped the sentiment at the bottom, and added the three adhesive half-back pearls, and the ribbon over the striped border. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! I just {love} sketch challenges! *smiles*
