I'm a Little Teapot

Hi Everyone! I suppose you remember the children's song - "I'm a Little Teapot." I was reminded of it when making this card. The challenge at Just For Fun this month is to make a shaped card, so I chose to make a teapot shaped card. Who doesn't like a warm cup of tea, even in the summer sometimes!

I used patterned paper from my stash and sponged Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges of the teapot. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the Brushed Floral stamp and added it to the teapot. I also pop dotted another flower to the top of the original one for dimension. The saying is from the Sentiments 3 unmounted sheet.

You still have a few more days left to enter the challenge. I hope to see you there!

Have a wonderful day!

Shabby Chic #11

Hi and welcome to my blog! I have always loved this sweet stamp from Stampa Rosa. I found this imge in my stash that had been smooshed with silver and gold metallics, but they brushed off! I wiped off all the silver and gold and used some metallic rub ons instead to make subtle colors on the image. This time the colors stayed on.

I cut out the image using the Spellbinders small oval die, the leaves are from a Memory Box die - Fresh Foliage, and the frame is from the Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 die. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day!

A Bouquet of Wishes

Hello! I hope you are having a good day. I made another shaped card, this time using a flowerpot shape. I stamped, colored and fussy cut these pretty Cone Daisies from Just For Fun Stamps to add to the pot.

I used a leaf punch for the leaves and the saying is from the Sentiments 1 unmounted sheet. I cut the saying in half so that it would fit on the tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by. The challenge this month at Just For Fun is to make a shaped card. We would love to see your cards. I hope you will join in the fun with us. 

Have a great day!

A Very Mice Day

Hi and welcome to my blog. I have been recently playing with a new type of card called the "impossible card." This card is not impossible to make -- it is actually quite easy! You can see how to make it here. I made two while I had all my stuff out and I know I will be making more!

I used this cute little House Mouse image and colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I stamped the saying and cut it out using a Spellbinders label die. 

Here is the other card I made using a die to pop up.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day!

Just For Fun Challenge

Another month has quickly passed and we are now in June! Time really flies. At Just For Fun  the challenge for this month is to make a shaped card. I made my card into a birdhouse and used the Just For Fun small Fashion Warbler. I stamped the bird and embossed with white embossing powder. I colored the bird using Zig watercolor markers and then fussy cut it. The birdhouse was run through a wood embossing folder. I swiped dark brown Distress ink over the raised areas. The leaf die is Fresh Foliage from Memory Box. I used the saying from the Sentiments 3 umounted sheet and cut it in two so that it would fit in the circle.

We hope that you will join in our new challenge. We would love to see all of your fun shaped cards. You might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
