Stampin' Llama

Welcome to our mini hop! You may have arrived her from  Stephanie's blog but if you are starting here the buttons at the end of this post will help you along the way. Stephanie designs our headers and buttons for all of our hops her work is amazing.

Here is my first card is an Autumn Birthday card

  • The card base is Sahara Sand CS with the feathers from Fine Feather stamped with Versamark
  • The pheasant was stamped with Stazon onto Watercolor Paper and colored with Ink and an Aqua Painter. I ran it through the Big Shot and cut it with the Labels Collection Framelits. 
  • I mounted it onto a piece of Cajun Craze CS that had been cut with the next larger Framelit.
  • I handcut feathers from Very Vanilla CS, tied them together with Linen Thread. 
  • The sentiment is from Create a Birthday stamped with Cajun Craze Ink.

My next card uses one of the single Christmas stamps.

  • The card base is Crumb Cake CS 
  • I ran a piece of Very Vanilla CS through the Big Shot in the Flowers a Plenty Embossing Folder and added it to the card base.
  • I added a piece of DSP from the Season of Style DSP. I used a piece of Brushed Gold CS punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Boarder punch to cover the seam of the two papers.
  • I stamped Prince of Peace with Versamark onto Very Vanilla CS and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder, then cut it out and popped it up with Dimensionals onto the cards front.

So there you have it a couple of fun cards that I hope you enjoyed, Now hope on over to Debbie's Blog.

The Wacky Watercooler

Wacky Watercooler New Catalog(ue) Blog Hop

Welcome to our hop! You may have just come from Jeanne's blog and if you have I'm sure you enjoyed her projects. If you are starting here just keep clicking until you make your way back to me.

My first 3 projects use the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit(133507) on page 31 of the Holiday Catalog.
I made the create banner for my craft room. I used Sponge Daubers for all my stenciling. The colors I used are Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Rose Red. I strung the banner flags from Rose Red Seam Binding.

The next banner is a work in progress, I won't be finishing it until I hold my banner class because I will be using it for demonstration purposes.
I did this banner in Real Red and Encore Silver. I used the Red and Silver Glimmer papers and the now retired snowflake die. I layered the snow flake either Silver, Red, Silver or Red, Silver, Red. The centers of the snow flakes have a Vintage Faceted Designer Button with Rhinestone centered on it. Santa Banner stamped with Santa's List found on page 31 of the Holiday Catalog.

The Halloween Banner uses Most of the pieces from the Halloween Simply Created Accessory Kit, page 31. I couldn't use the Summer Starfruit pieces.
I made additional Lollies from DSP the Pumpkin Pie piece is from Quatrefancy Specialty DSP and Old Olive is from the DSP Stacks. I stenciled with Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant and Stazon.

My last project is a card using Truly Grateful stamp set found on page 19 of the Holiday Catalog.
The card base is Naturals White I stamped the panel stamp with Baked Brown Sugar. I cut banner cut strips of CS in Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler. I banner cut Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon as well as Cotton Ribbon. I Stamped Happy Birthday from Create a Cupcake on the Cotton Ribbon in Early Espresso. I layers all the banners together an topped the off with two stamped acorns I used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Cajon Craze for the acorn.

Hop on over to Terri's Blog and see what she has in store for you.

I Need Your Help

My boss bought a couple of wooden owls to decorate, she gave me one of them. I have started to dec
orate it but I am at a loss as how to finish it and that is where I need your help.

So far I have covered the owl with Epic Day This and That DSP. His Belly is Crumb Cake CS with the edges sponged with Crumb Cake Ink.
The eyes are Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip CS, the beak is Crushed Curry CS.
So I need help on how to finish it. Here is one idea that I have thought of but I'm not sure if I like it.
Please comment with any suggestions that you might have.
