Good Luck

WOW! WOW! WOW! It has been a while. I can not believe how long it has taken me to get back to normal after surgery. Granted I was moving around and such I just didn't have the energy or anything to craft. Finally I am back! Yahoo!

 I am sad to report that I will have to align my Cricut Imagine today and then later this week..

Later in the week is because I am having new flooring installed in my Craft Room, good bye carpet Hallejuah! So when I move everything out of my room this weekend, my scrap box, my new desk DH built, it will be a long a difficult task but soooooo worth it!

Back to Crafting....

I have been steadily working on crafts the past 2 days. I was in Cricut Craft Room and decided to just play around with some of the digital cartridges I purchased.


I really like how this card turned out, Fun & Quirky!
Though my Photo isn't the best, eh it will do

Cricut Craft Room
Good Luck Sentiment from Cricut Craft Room Basics
Arrows are from the Arrows CCR Exclusives
The pink paper is actually Post it Note that I glued to the front
The Arrows and card have TH Distress Ink Daubers

My interpretation of this card and arrows is
Whichever direction you choose

Wednesday Wowzer Time

I have a cute little idea to share with you today.
If you have a friend that is expecting or if you are looking for a creative way to make  your baby announcement...here is an idea.


 Create a large tag with {ippity}'s Preggo Good Luck set...


...and tie it to a diaper.


I created my own sentiment, I love the all occasion type sentiments, that can work for multiple occasions!


I used all the pastel baby colors and when you use them altogether, they are so sweet.


I hope you like my project.  These itty bitty {ippity} sets are so much fun, I just adore them all!

Tons of Fun Tuesday: Friendship Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!
Amy here to share a fun card that can be sent to any friend!





I used the friendship rainbow stamp (a new itty bitty stamp by Ippity):
Friendship Rainbow


 and stamped it on kraft paper twice.
I then paper pieced the rainbow together twice using patterned papers.
Finally, I added a rounded backround by punching borders and adding them to the base of the card using my Xyron X.
The bling was a fun added touch!
If you love this stamp and would like to own it, head over to Unity and order under Ippity Chick
Heather Flaherty!
Happy Tuesday!!

Totally Terrific Thursday

Hello, I Heart Ippity fans!
Shellye here with a Totally Terrific Thursday card for you.
I've used the Itty Bitty "Fabulous Girl" Stamp Set
IPPITY-IB-008
For my card, I used some older papers from Stampin Up, buttons, paper tape, baker's twine and I Bond Rhinestones by Imaginisce (little accents on the dresses)

I stamped the dress image onto two different patterned papers and then carefully cut out.  I layered the orange dress over the other image with foam dots. 
I had so much fun putting this together...hope you enjoy!

Wednesday Wowzer Time




Hello??  Is there anyone out there?  I hope so, because...I stayed up late creating a mini masterpiece to show you all today.
I am using one of the new release stamps by {ippity} called:

Sucks to Get Old


I wanted to show you that these duos are so wonderful, and you don't have to get hung up on the phrase that your image comes with.  #1, the phrase and image are 2 different stamps and #2, because they are 2 different stamps you can mix an match and the possibilities are endless.


For this project, I only used the Image, the lollipop.


I paper pieced it using my brand new, super dee duper, Momenta Cardstock Paper.


For the phrase, I used some letter stickers from my Momenta Super Paper Pad.


I took the time to make sure that the candy jar still looked cute even after the tag was removed.


Sometimes it's the little touches that make a projects really stand out.


I also wanted to show you I fixed my annoying error from my project last week.


I put a lot of time and effort into this card and took the pictures and while editing the pictures it hit me that I should have made the card front so it opens while holding it as a rainbow shape.


So, I took it apart and fixed my error and I am so much happier with this card now.


I had a giveaway for this and my wonderful friend,Donna, is the lucky recipient of this colorful card.


This card was made with the stamp set called:

Friendship Rainbow


I hope you have liked my projects today!  Check out my blog post today...I am giving away the TAG from the Candy Jar project...so go see how you can get in on that giveaway!!

Eat! Treat Bag...



Welcome to Tons of Fun Tuesday!
I have a treat bag to share with you today/
Jeannie LOVES polka dots, and I have been seeing them everywhere, so I had to make some dots on my treat bag. I used the end of a fat paintbrush and some paint and polka dotted my white lunch bag and my tag.
Here's the end result:


I am excited to fill it with some brownies and gift it to a friend.
This stamp set is one of the new Itty Bitty stamps.
Here is a look at all the sets:

Be sure to shop Ippity stamps HERE
Have a wonderful Tuesday.

Totally Terrific Thursday

Hello!
Shellye here with your Totally Terrific Thursday project.
I love, love, love the new collection of Itty Bitty stamps...the artwork is the sweetest!
I've used the FRIENDSHIP RAINBOW set
IPPITY-IB-006
for this fast, easy and clean 'n simple card.


I stamped the image four times onto three different patterned papers (Lime Twist by My Mind's Eye) and lastly onto the cloud paper.  I use Staz-On ink for the majority of my stamping (black...the images are always so crisp).  I then carefully handcut each strip of the rainbow from the patterned papers and glued onto the cloud paper, using its stamped image as a pattern.  After cutting the hearts from the paper, I added a foam dot before adhering.  For a little extra dimension, I stitched around the clouds and also added a popped up cloud, button, ribbon tab and baker's twine. 
Hope you enjoy the new stamps being offered by I Heart Ippity!
See you next week
Shellye

Wednesday Wowzer Time

Hooray it is Wednesday and I have a WOWZER for you today!
I have used some new release dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and a new release from {ippity}.
Be sure to check out my blog post for this card, since I am doing a giveaway for this card.  You can find all the details on my blog.

I am using the new stamp called Friendship Rainbow.
Here is the front of this fancy card.


Here is the inside when you open up the flap(the violet paper).

 Here you can see how all the layers look so beautifully layered together.


The next time I make this, I will create the card so that the flap opens when the card is being held in the RAINBOW shape.  But I did not even think of this until I showed it to someone, after the card was all completed.  Then it hit me, "Why didn't I make the card the other way. with the RAINBOW facing up?"
Oh well, just one of those days, if you know what I mean!
The card is still gorgeous bright and cheerful and the stamp goes perfectly with the shape and color of the card base.  
So if you like it, like I already said, head on over to my blog to see how you can win this bright and cheerful card.

I really love Vintage Valentines

I really love vintage items period. I was SOOOO excited this year to see Christmas Cards that reminded me of when I was growing up, of cards I had seen and or received. One in particular was from a childhood friend named Thea Nicholson and when I moved away she sent me Christmas card with Santa on it and I kept that card for years (quite possiblyI still have it).. This year I found a very similar card..

Sorry about the OFF Topic moment..
I hoe everyone has a FABULOUS Valentines Day

Better Together...

Welcome to Tons of Fun Tuesday!

I am a huge Jack Johnson fan. I've seen him live, and there's not much that beats it.
So when Heather sent me the "Better Together" stamp set, I was in love.

Here's a little Jack before we go much further, it is Valentines Day after all, and Jack live in Paris?
Oh my!
Jack Johnson in Paris Link

Ok, back to stamping:
This stamp set is adorable:

I am loving all the itty bitty stamps that are coming out.
Heather sent us the full collection of five that was just released (isn't she the best?) and I can't decide on a favorite:


 and here is the card I made for my sweet husband who spoiled me rotten this weekend in San Diego:

I stamped the bees all over the kraft cardstock with Jenni Bowlin Chili Powder ink, and then colored in the hearts. I then stamped the bees in black on sticky back canvas and colored in the hearts. Finally, I stamped the "We're better together" on sticky back canvas and drew a square around it. I tied some twine (my favorite) to finish it off.
Wishing you a wonderful Valentine's, I hope you get super spoiled!
xoxo
