Pyjama Party - Challenge #4

Pretty woman yeah yeah this movie!! Wouldn't it be fun to go shopping for a new wardrobe with a gorgeous rich man's credit card??? Here is my rendition of Julia Robert's red dress:

Simple dress was coloured in copics, popped up for dimension, grounded and highlighted with light yellow and framed in black to make it pop. I added the score lines and piercing for a bit of subtle interest...wouldn't want to outshine the red dress, you know!!

Stamps: a muse (simple dress, what fun, clear ovals)
Ink: palette hybrid noir, moulin rouge, SU so saffron
Paper: SU very vanilla, basic black
Accessories: scor-pal, paper piercer, pop dots

Pyjama Party - Challenge #3

A card for a girlfriend...well I have been meaning to make something for a friend at work since I saw and bought this stamp from a muse. I have had to bribe this particular friend on several occasions with chocolate!!

This card turned out a bit frilly! I don't usually make frilly cards...I would rather work outside than do housework, I am the only female in my household and I am not a huge fan of the colour pink!! Frills I used on this card were:

1) scalloped border
2) scalloped punch for the main image
3) pink accents (coloured in some of the open spaces in the madeira paper with pink, stamped the clear oval with 3rd-generation-stamped palette hybrid moulin rouge to make a pink base)
4) velvet ribbon
5) rounded corners

Now I feel like I need to go play in the mud, climb a tree and make a long skid with my bike!!

Stamps: a muse (truffle, everyone has a price, frames, clear oval)
Ink: palette hybrid burnt umber, moulin rouge
Paper: SU very vanilla, close to cocoa, a muse madeira
Accessories: SU scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches, scallop punch, ek success corner rounder punch, pop dots, velvet ribbon (Mike's), copics

Pyjama Party - Challenge #2

I used to love sleepover parties for my birthday when I was my birthday is near Halloween, we used to tell creepy stories in the dark...EEK!!

This was the fastest card on the planet...I stamped the letters "boo" (made sure they lined up using my stampamajig), then stamped the ghost inside the "o" (SAMJ again to line it up). I coloured the polka dots in the alpha with orange, purple and green copics, outlined the ghost a wee bit and DONE!!

Stamps: a muse (polka dot alpha, ghost)
Ink: palette hybrid noir
Paper: PTI white
Accessories: copics

Pajama Party - Challenge #1

My favourite food/drink? Ice cream...pralines and cream preferable, but I'd take anything with caramel in it!! I kept these ice cream treats plain and simple as I only had 30 minutes to put this card together. You can imagine your own favourite flavours of ice cream for this card!

I have a small stash of twinkle stickers...they make perfect cherries, and provide a bit of colour pop here. A little bit of stitched ribbon leftover from last year's a muse peace and cheer kit serves as a ground for the ice cream bowls. A muse's new gingham paper works well as a table cloth. I need to raid the freezer!! Care to join me??

Stamps: a muse (sundaes, treat for you)
Ink: palette hybrid noir
Paper: PTI white, a muse (gingham)
Accessories: stitched ribbon (a muse), twinkle stickers (a muse), SU word window punch

Art Challenge!

I participated in the CAS (clean and simple) challenge on SCS this week...

The card I made was inspired by this piece of art by Alan Buckle called Teal Bubble Flowers. It caught my eye because it would be perfect for my bedroom...

I cut out a square of so saffron and ran it through a cuttlebug embossing folder. I inked over this with gold ink to make it stand out more. I added some random fuzzy teal brads (aren't they fab!!) and a sentiment. I matted this in chocolate and pierced around. Pretty simple!

I made it a birthday card 'cause I have 4 birthdays coming up in my family...must get shopping!! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: PTI faux ribbon
Paper: SU vanilla, chocolate chip, so saffron
Ink: palette hybrid burnt umber, brilliance galaxy gold
Accessories: cuttlebug embossing folder, fuzzy brads by creative cafe, paper piercer, SU small oval punch, pop dots

Cupcake Sunshines!

Here's a card to fit 2 challenges...AMAP #4 "SPOT!" and SCS's CAS22 "Hey, Hey, It's your birthday!". This card was done in 10 minutes tops! Easy to mass-produce!

I marked out a 3x3 grid in pencil for spacing of the sunshines, used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up, added the sentiment, erased my pencil lines and added popped up punched circles to the centres of suns. Pretty cool that the paper I used has spots on it, huh? Thanks for stopping by!!

Stamps: A muse (funnest birthday, Sun)
Paper: SU very vanilla, BG cupcake
Ink: Palette Hybrid noir
Accessories: SU 1/2" circle punch, pop dots, SAMJ
