Debossing with Make It Monday

The debossing on my card does not show up very well in this picture but it is there : )

The uber talented Dawn McVey has posed a new challenge at the Papertrey Ink blog to create a card using what she calls "debossing".  You can see her video HERE but I will give you the gist of it.

Debossing is basically using a die or a cutting plate to emboss on your paper rather than cut shapes from your paper.  This is achieved by changing up your "sandwich" that you run through your machine.

Here is a better - darker shot of the same card so you can see the debossing : )

For this technique select a die cutting plate with a coordinating stamp set.  For my card I debossed my card first with the PTI Hearts Die cover plate.  Then I stamped over a few of the debossed shapes with some heart stamps from the coordinating set.  It didn't work as smooth as Dawn's LOL I found the heart stamps to be larger than the impressions left after my debossing so it is not as "professional" of a look. 

Still, I like it and think it is a very pretty look that I would like to try with a butterfly like Dawn did or a floral image and die... I just need to shop! right!?! heehee

I love the challenges at PTI.  There is still time for you to join the fun and as always with PTI there is a prize to be won! woohoo so why not give it a try. Make it Monday link

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! We are enjoying a fantastic sunny - blue sky day! : )

Stamp swap

This past weekend when my friends and I got together to play with paper we did some stamp swapping.  Here are two cards I made with some of the images I borrowed  : )

Both cards use images by Unity Stamp - a company I had not heard of before.  For my first card I used "Shop. Lunch. Chat Gal" along with some DSP by Stampin Up.  I selected these patterned papers to coordinate with this new ribbon I just got.  Isn't it sweet!? It is actually elastic : ) I can't tell you the name of it because I got it from a local liquidator type store.  It was on a bolt but there were no markings to indicate the maker.  That store is wonderful but you know when you find something great - buy what you want because when it is gone it is gone forever : )

For my second card I duplicated a technique my friend, Theresa, was working on at our play day.  You simply cut your card base and another white cs piece and lay it directly on top of your card base. Then stamp your images on top of both pieces of paper. Lift off the top piece and layer a contrasting piece of cs under it and walla! Easy Peasy!! no eyeballing it up and hoping your images line up it works perfect : ) Maybe this is an old technique but I'd never tried it before. 

I used another image from Unity Stamp called "Let's Ketchup".  I layered it on top of my background created using "Wonderful Friend" from Close To My Heart. 

Our friends at Shopping Our Stash challenge blog have challenged us to create a background for a card using stamps! : ) My card works out nicely for this challenge so I will be entering it this week.  Why not join the fun at Shopping Our Stash and create a background using stamps for your next project?

These two cards bring my total to 54 cards completed with just 47 days left to go! I'm talking about a personal challenge I posed for myself to create 100 cards in 100 days.  I am offering BLOG  CANDY! as you cheer me on simply by leaving a comment on today's post.  See all the details HERE.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Cooking up some thanks

Before I begin my post today I want to welcome Carmen owner of Carmen's Creations.  Thanks so much for joining me : )

I also want to THANK YOU!! all for the wonderful comments you have been leaving me to cheer me on in my goal to create 100 cards in 100 days! With every comment is another chance to win my BLOG CANDY and who doesn't love Blog Candy!?! : ) See the details of my little give away HERE.

Plus I wanted to reply to all the funny comments regarding my wherewithal to do a photo documentary of my "House Mouse" visitor.  The fact is my husband is a photo journalist (by hobby not by trade) and has taught me well.  He was not home that day so I knew I MUST get the whole thing on "film" for lasting entertainment : ) heehee.   I once LITERALLY had an ermine in my house! I am not kidding!! I had left the door open momentarily while I ran out to capture a bag that was blowing in the back yard and it must have scooted in.  This happened just days before the first snow fall of the year so this amazing creature was in it's winter coat all ready for the snow - white as snow with a black tip on it's tail.  I freaked out! when I saw it in the house and did NOT get pictures! LOL I regretted that then and now.  All I had to do to get it to leave was open the door again.  It was MORE than happy to leave.  It was at least as scared as I was and it was probably a bit deaf from my blood curdling screams too. : ) ahhh! life in the country : )

So without further ado.. another House Mouse card.  This one I created for my friend's Mom.  She is a wonderful Mom who lives in another state and sends her daughter treats and gifts regularly. The practical kind heehee like tooth paste and tin foil.  I love it! I also love how she never forgets to include something for me when she sends her collection of great deals.  I made this card for her and will be sending it off along with some special salt! Something practical and delicious too.

I also created another card, almost the same, for my stash - you can never have too many House Mouse cards right?!

Have a wonderful day friends.

Button Boutique

I hope you enjoyed a nice weekend.  Ours was a long one for the Memorial Day celebration.  We had outstanding weather that got me on the golf course as well as the lake - woo hoo!!

Among the fun we had this weekend was on Sunday when some of my peeps and I got together to play with paper.  We sometimes have a planned cardmaking project but this time we just sort of each worked on our own thing.

I wanted to get some cards made up to move me along in my personal challenge to create 100 cards in 100 days.  I am offering BLOG CANDY to add some fun for my friends and followers who leave "Cheer me on comments" : )  (Which, by the way I GREATLY! appreciate and enjoy!! See my blog Candy deets HERE.

I used my "Button Boutique" stamp set and coordinating dies from Papertrey Ink.  I just love this set and plan to make many more cards using it.  I love how the button cards can look so authentic and "old".

 I had intended to make each of these three cards very different from one another but my third card refused to come together so I quickly just (almost) duplicated my first one : )   I couldn't bear to only get two cards done in one whole day of paper crafting! LOL

The sentiment on my first and last card is from Close To My Heart.  I don't own this set - but was using my friends so I forgot to jot down the name of it.  Maybe she will leave a comment and tell us the name : ) Hear that, Theresa? I thought it was such a sweet sentiment for a "vintage" card.  The inside reads:

but not your age

These cards represent a half way mark for me as I have now completed 50 of my 100 cards!! woo hoo.  And, I did not plan it this way, today marks exactly 50 days left to go before the drawing for my BLOG CANDY on July 16th : )

I cannot thank you all enough for all the encouraging and fun comments you've left.  I am having so much fun with this challenge made so much better by YOU!

Thank you so much for looking. Have a great day!

Antique card??

BLOG CANDY give away!! See the details HERE I have challenged myself to create 100 cards in 100 days! It is going great although I am noticing the nice weather, garden, golfing, boating and friends are keeping me away from my craftroom more and more!! A wonderful!! relaxing and fun distraction : ) which in this part of the country passes WAY too quickly!

I did not have anyone in mind when I created this card  - just one to have in my stash for future use.  The inside says:

...always make me smile

I used some patterned paper from Stampin Up's Sycamore Street DSP - which is retired, a Bella image from Stampin Bella - which is discontinued and a sentiment from The Angel Company that is not only discontinued but the whole company is discontinued! LOL So even though this card looks new and modern it is adequated on every side heehee just like me. ; )

Enjoy your weekend!

A story about a House Mouse

As promised here is a story about a "House Mouse" that visited me.

Living in the country definitely has it's advantages!! However, sometimes a field mouse will make it's way into the house.  This is NOT ok with me on any level.  Once several years ago I found droppings around the base of my dishwasher.  I immediately placed a trap.  The next day, having forgot all about it,  I got up and went to the kitchen walking around getting breakfast ready.  I am guessing it was at least a half hour before I finally saw this little guy.

Quiet as a mouse! 

I freaked out a bit - not screaming... just panicking!  My husband was gone for the day and I was left with quite a dilemma.  The way this kind of trap it works this is the back of the trap pinches down and stays open until the mouse goes for the bait.  When the mouse puts it's mouth on the bait the trap closes down on the mouse and kills it instantly.  In this case the little rascal got caught on it's foot only.  You can see from the white specks around the floor that it had spent some time trying to chew the plastic trap to free itself.

So my dilhema was how to pick the thing up and relocate it!  If I actually picked it up I was afraid it would get free and be alive in my house! I wanted to kill it but I never wanted to torture it! What to do???

I grabbed an old towel and covered it then scooped it all up and put it into a trash can...

From then on I knew I was home free as far as it getting loose in the house.  I carefully emptied it outside and then pulled the towel off.

I mean it! I really really do not like mice! I really really will not tolerate them in my house but I really really cannot torture anything either so it was hurting me that the mouse must be in pain and great fear.  I couldn't think of any way to kill it instantly so I just wanted to free it.

I ran for a broom and when I came back it had managed to get to the snow covered bush.  All I had to do was pinch the back of the trap with the end of the broom and freed the mouse! woo hoo!!

All this before breakfast!

Why do I love House Mouse? I have no idea LOL but I do : )  Today's card design was inspired by the gals at Mojo Monday challenge blog.

I created some watercolor ink splatters on the background of my white cs in aqua blue and lime green.  Once that was dry I placed two strips of some coordinating Washi Tape : )

This product from PTI is on my wish list : ) so I copied the idea and wrapped myself a little embie from a lime green rick rack - layered my sentiment on top and then added a little stick pin.

I hope you enjoyed the story of my  adventure with my own House Mouse!  LOL and my goofy little card.  I look forward to reading your comments : )  If you are new to my blog I wanna let you know that I am offering BLOG CANDY! Your comment today automatically enters your name in the drawing for a chance to win : ) See THIS POST for all the details!

Why not consider joining the fun at Mojo Monday and create your own card from this weeks sketch!  I also wanted to share this funny story and card with the wonderful folks at the House Mouse and Friends blog.  If you have not checked out these two blogs I urge you to blurf around and see what crafters from all over the world are doing with House Mouse and this neat sketch!!

Thanks a bunch for cheering me on! this is my 46th card and I still have 56 days left to go : )

Class Clown

Before I begin I would like to welcome Shanna my newest follower, the owner of The Stamping Banana  welcome!! welcome!! I hope you'll find something to inspire and entertain you here. : )

Class Clown is the name of this cute House Mouse image.  I am kind of goofy about House Mouse Designs, Inc.  : )  I love each one.  I think it is amazing how the creator makes the mischief of these fuzzy little rodents look like so much fun.  The truth is, though I actually HATE mice LOL and on the rare occasion I've had one in my house it is NO FUN! at all!!! LOL

Actually as I'm writing this post I am reminded of a time back in 2005 when I had a mouse in my house!... I can't take the time today but very soon I will share a little picture series of an event that happened at our house when a "house mouse" got caught in a sticky situation! : ) Stay tuned.

I created this card for a precious friend of mine who graduated from the 8th Grade last night.  She and I share the love of paper crafting so I knew she would get a kick out of this rascal as much as I did : )

In case you've not heard.... I am offering BLOG CANDY as my way of saying thank you for encouraging me along the way in my goal to create 100 cards in 100 days.  This card is my 41st card and I have 60 days left to go!! See the details of the candy offer HERE.

We have exciting plans for the day as we celebrate the birthday of my best friend and business partner, Diane, so off I got to set the party in motion!  I hope you have a wonderful day as well!!

Sing it if you know it!

Our friends at Shopping our Stash Blog have served up a challenge to create a card inspired by a song.  Happy birthday was banned from the line up but I didn't need it because of this sweet PTI "Phrase Play" stamp set and die combo : )

I used both sides of  a pp by My Mind's Eye called "Sunshine Lovely Plaid Paper" - the stars are cut from the reverse side of the plaid. Some solid yellow cs from my stash for the die cut and a swipe of yellow gingham Washi Tape.  The Kraft border inside and out are from CTMH.  It is hard to see in the picture but I added a few mustard colored star "tails" : ) and then  some gold sequins for a final bit of sparkle : )

Thank you all so much for all the wonderful comments and cheering you are doing to encourage me in my goal of creating 100 cards in 100 days.  I started thirty nine days ago and this will be my 40th card!  My gift to you is a chance to win my BLOG CANDY click HERE for all the details!

Do you have a song in your heart today? Why not join the fun at Shopping Our Stash challenge blog 

That is it for today! I hope you are enjoying sunshine in your heart - if not your skies today.

MIM - The OK, the BAD and the UGLY!

I normally start out my blog posts welcoming a new follower and or introducing my BLOG CANDY but today I thought I would change it up a bit and start out WHINING! You know, get it out of the way : )

The uber talented Heather Nichols hosted this weeks Make it Monday on the Papertrey Ink blog.  The challenge? "Cluster Stamped Sentiment" You can see her great video HERE.  I thought it looked both fun and easy!  Simply stamp a sentiment in Versamark clear ink then emboss it and finally surround your sentiment with shapes which "grow" from behind the sentiment to scatter over your paper like a burst of confetti... or something like that.  You better watch the video for yourself.

My card making Mojo has been terribly low lately but I can't actually believe that I am going to really post the cards I made for all blogland to see.

Here are my excuses:

1. I have a tremendous lack of ink pads - which with my birthday coming up may improve : )
2. I do not have a large thick-font sentiment stamp from Papertrey Ink which seems important for this technique.
3. ... Ok, I can't think of three but I was whining so much there really must be a 3.

It's ok.  I could send it but I don't like it.

I will start with the "good" card.  This was my third attempt! It is actually the best of the series but darn if I didn't have to use a Stampin Up sentiment.  I prefer using PTI products exclusively for their generous contest. Then red ink I used dyed the embossed sentiment and smeared the shapes behind it  so it looks pink! and spoiled the crisp clean look. : (

I could never use this card.

The BAD. This is actually the second card I made.  I had found on my first card that I needed a thicker font for my sentiment so this was a try for that.  The sentiment is still too little and gets lost.

I have taught card making classes for years and have always told my students that there is no mistake in cardmaking - only opportunities.  I lied.  LOL Ok, maybe not but about those "well placed" sequins? they are covering up all the smudges I made when I didn't realize the ink that was laying on top of the embossed sentiment were smeared all over the card!

The UGLY.  This was where I started.  I tried to select three ink colors that coordinate on the color wheel.  but I'm not wild about this combo.  Next I selected my sentiment - having no idea the poor sweet message would be nearly unreadable.

This one is ok.  Not in love with it but it will do

But in the end I covered up my invisible sentiment with the same sentiment stamped on cs to try to save it.

All in all I failed at this challenge --> but ladies - I worked hard so I decided to post these beasts even with all their problems. : )

Even though I came up short this really was a great challenge.  If you have some time I encourage you to blurf over to PTI MIM and see what others have done with this challenge.

Have a great day! thanks for letting me whine : ) I'm done now. LOL

Sweet Canning Jars

Hello friends : )

The week is well under way and I'm finally getting a post out! Where does the time go??  

Before I get started please join me in welcoming my two newest followers, Jennyfer from Jennyfer Creates and Beth from Beth's Beauties. Please stop by these two SWEET blogs, leave some love and tell them Patti sent you : )

Next - BLOG CANDY!! in case you are stopping by for the first time let me tell you about my the blog candy I am offering.  I have challenged myself to create 100 cards in 100 days! : )  I need your help cheering me on! simply leave a comment on this post for a chance to win - easy peasy!!.  See THIS POST for all the details : )

 I have been playing with some sweet papers from American Crafts today called Little Trinket and Dreamcatcher from the "Lucky Charm" collection. 

I just love these canning jars!  During the summer months you will find me canning as many fresh fruits and vegetables that I can from both my garden and the local Farmer's Market fare.  I not only truly enjoy the work of canning I LOVE the delicious food all through the winter months.

My first card is for a dear friend of mine, almost like a Mom, who gave ME a Mother's Day gift!  I cut out the three canning jars from my paper and stamped a light pink MOM over the top of the center jar.  It is a bit too light but I didn't want to re-stamp it for fear of messing it up.  I layered a piece of clear acetate over the top of the jars only and stamped my sentiment right on top of the word MOM.  To attach the acetate to the (canning jar portion only of the) card I sewed a section of ric rac on the left side. This secured the acetate in place.  I then cut a lacy trim for the bottom of the "cupboard" shelf.  and glued that to both the bottom acetate edge.  Finally I attached a little ribbon and nosegay of flowers over the top of the ric rac.

For my next card I selected more of the same papers.  The patterned paper with the canning jars on has many many different jars.  The jar on the far left has the words "remember this" printed on the paper.  I wanted to use this as a building block for my sentiment.

Before attaching the jar section to my card face I stamped a sunflower image directly on the pp.  I lightly colored the leaves in the same color as the leaves in the background pp.  I stamped the image again and fussy cut out the head of the flower and colored it with Prisma pencils. I attached the head and then using CTMH  Liquid Glass filled in the flower center - while that was wet sprinkled some copper micro beads.  Then I attached my jar portion to the pp and finally sewed some authentic vintage trim to the bottom of the card face.  Finally attaching that to my card base.

Whew! long post : ) I hope you like these two cards which bring my challenge total to 36 cards completed with 71 days left to go.

Have a great rest of your day!  See you tomorrow : )

Happy Birthday!!

Today is my little sister's birthday : ) This card is not for her LOL I sent off her card and failed to photograph it first!? I can hardly believe I did that but Happy Birthday anyway Beverly : )

This card is actually for my great niece, Hayden, She will be 15 years old this month.  I wanted to create a "fun" teen card.  I hope she likes it - who wouldn't like that trendy polish? LOL.

I embossed my Happy die from PTI twice on the white portion of the card and then cut the black "Happy" from the same die.  Next I layered some neon nail polish bottles from an old Sizzix die and then again I cut out the top portion of the nail polish bottle from black paper.  I added a quick bow from Wally World and there you go!  I also stamped "Birthday" inside the card. : )

BLOG CANDY for your sweet tooth!! see the details in THIS POST.

And last but not least please join me in welcoming my newest follower, Kirsty from Little Hand Made Things blog. Please pop over to visit her.  She has is adorable and so are her papercraft projects!! : )

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Hexagons - Thinking of you

Hello friends : )  I'm excited to be getting inky today! I've been super busy preparing for our big Mother's Day Sale at neckStyles™, my little scarf biz on Etsy, that I've had to turn my attention from my beautiful papers to some beautiful fabric instead : ) But everything is running as it should so I'm back to playing with paper today!

Before I continue with today's post I want to send a BIG shout out!! to my newest followers!! Jenny B from Owl Be Crafty, Jenny from Jen's Paper Obsession, Elly - all the way from the Netherlands! : ) at Elly's Creations and a great big (((Hug))) for Shawna Standish! : ) Welcome welcome!! I hope you will visit often and be inspired when you do. : )

Today I wanted to make a card using my new Happy Hexagons Stamp Set from PTI.  I love how you can line these stamps up and create a quilt like pattern simply by eying it up. I used Real Red and Crumb Cake inks from SU.  I love how these two colors coordinate.  I chose a sentiment from CTMH "Card Chatter - Sympathy" and then went to my button bin to dig for the perfect buttons.

While I was going through my buttons I came across a sweet collection of buttons from Making Memories and decided to break my resolution NOT to think of anything relating to winter for at least 6 months! LOL and create a Christmas card.

Aren't these little buttons cute? I have had them forever!! and hate to use them.  But in an effort to begin USING my supplies I surrendered!

That is it for today.  I have been getting a bit behind in my goal to create 100 cards in 100 days but I am not worried. : )  so far I have completed 33 cards and I still have 69 days left to go before I complete my challenge and draw a winner for my BLOG CANDY! Thank you for leaving a comment on today's post.  In doing so you qualify for a chance to win.  See THIS post for all the details!

Happy Mother's Day

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog today.  In doing so you are automatically entered in a drawing for the chance to win my BLOG CANDY!  Please see THIS POST for all the details.

 With Mother's Day just a week away now I thought it would be fun to share a Mother's Day card I created for my friend Barb's Scrapbook Store.  You may recall that I have been making "Scrapbook Kits" for her to sell at her store.  I have now moved on to "Card Kits" : )  I will create a card like this then prepare all the same elements for a kit that she will sell to her customers.

 Just in case the card design is right but the sentiment is not appropriate I included an alternate sentiment in the kit. Here is a picture of the extra sentiment and one of the kits : ) I hope the picture does not look purple on your monitor.  I've been having some technical issues with my photography lately but just so you know it is a sweet soft "Baby Girl" pink : )

Thank you for cheering me on! 31 cards done!! woo hoo 73 days left to go : )

I hope you have a wonderful day!

A little more coffee please : )

I am having so much fun with PTI's Heart - 2 - Heart #1 Die and Stamp set  This time I used a wonderful two-sided pp from Creative imaginations.  I used both sides on this card.  

I am not a coffee drinker at all or much of a tea drinker either but I love the fun and fellowship of "going out for coffee". My friends do not seem to mind I'm not drinking coffee LOL

Short post today because I'm going out for coffee with friends... just kidding LOL No, actually we are headed to some good friends house to get our hands on their son who is a US Sailor and has been out to sea for SIX MONTHS! I can't imagine how they do that but I sure appreciate that they do!

I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday sipping something special with friends.

MIM - Paper Scrap Pie Charts

BLOG CANDY for your sweet tooth!! and to cheer me on in my goal of creating 100 cards in 100 days!  For a chance to win simply comment on this post : ) For all the details go HERE.

Today's card was oh so much fun to make!! The very talented Melissa Phillips, design team member at Papertrey Ink hosted this weeks Make It Monday!  She shares a great video HERE.  The challenge was to create a project using a "Pie Chart" made from paper scraps.

Let me share a bit about my process and a SURPRISE!

I started by selecting some coordinating paper scraps.  I wanted to use pastel colors in honor of Melissa Phillips because her signature style is soft and pretty - shabby chic - vintage. I hope I described it right.  I doubt she will see this post but I do not want  to misrepresent her. Please visit her blog you will feel like you fell into a bed filled with down and covered with pillows!

I used an Arrow Die to cut my scraps.

The next step is to arrange your pieces in a pie shape.  Melissa shared how to secure them with some tape on the back before you carefully align your die over it all to cut your shape.  For my card I created two pie charts and cut two different size circles. 

Isn't this just the sweetest idea!? What a wonderful way to use your scraps!

As a side note I thought it was funny that Melissa, who is a scrap saver like myself, said that she promised NOT to save the scraps from the unused portion of the pie chart. : ) But I had the sweetest surprise . Look what was left over from each arrow die cut after I cut the large circle....

I just couldn't resist creating a card from these scraps that look like little shirts! LOL I think Melissa would be so proud of me!! I even used the portion of my large circle that  I cut from the left side of my card! heeheehee

 What a delightful challenge!! : ) There is still time to join the fun! I'd love to see your Paper Scrap Pie Chart!

Thank you so much for stopping by! and thank you for cheering me on in my goal to make 100 cards.  So far I have completed 29 cards : ) only 71 more to go in 75 days. See why I need cheering?! LOL
