Reverse Confetti Challenge, ‘fetti friend post…

A fun challenge opportunity to share with you today!  Another post from me as a ‘fetti friend for Reverse Confetti stamps this month.

Little Boy Birthday Card and Some Valentine ATCs…

Family Birthday time Sunday afternoon!  This is our youngest grandson Charles. hehe. He doesn’t like his picture taken any better than Grandma does!

He loves playing in his kinetic dirt with this big machinery so I had to make a fitting birthday card for him. So cute!

I tore and inked (Gathered Twigs Distress ink) some kraft cardstock for the hills.  I sponged the clouds with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink and a cloud stencil, it’s an old one, I think from Rosie’s Roadshow stamp co.

The panel is ATC size, 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  I matted it with black cardstock and stamped the Happy Birthday in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Black ink.

Loads of Love is from a Taylored Expressions stamp set, stamped in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Black ink also.

I used two Memory Box dies, one is still available, the Mighty Dump Truck.  The Little Dozer die is from 2016 and is now discontinued.  For some reason I ordered 3 of that die! ugh.  So I have one to sell if someone wants it $4. (EDA – SOLD)  Email me at the contact tab under the blog title at the top of the page. I can send it in a 5×7 envelope for one postage stamp I bet, unless you want tracking. Dump truck, links below.

We had a super fun party. Youngest and Oldest grandson’s birthdays and Valentines!  I’ll be back with oldest’s card another day.

Linking my birthday card to some challenges…

Seize the Birthday – anything goes

Addicted To Stamps and More – anything goes

HLS March CAS Challenge – special day

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – create a scene

Here’s some of the ATCs I made and gave to the grands for Valentines…

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share what I’ve been up to! 😀

Your Next Stamp, Hero Arts and MFT ATC’s…

Hi everyone!  Excuse me while I backtrack to Valentines Day but I just have to share these Artist Trading Cards I made for our grandchildren for V-day! I made doubles and triples of most because we need a lot for our awesome grandkids!  I know, I know, I’m bias! lol

Starlitstudio.net sells these little sacks, so I decorated them a wee bit with washi tape.  I’ll link everything below…

It’s impossible to get googly eyes to behave for a photo laying down! lol

I had a few versions of this cactus one…

These for the older girls…

These for the older boys…

I had fun making (so did they) and our valentine exchange party was so fun for everyone!  I took sheet protectors for all the sizes of cards so they can keep them in ring binders.

Well that’s it for today!  Holler if you have any questions!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you!

Paper Smooches and Artistic Outpost…

Now there is a contrast in companies!!! lol  oh well… both cute cards!  You know I LOVE cute!

_MG_6384

Yesterday was day one of the Clean and Simple Cardmaking 2 Class…. the heart tree card is my take on the homework we were assigned…

CS2_participant

I used five sets from Paper Smooches (to get enough different hearts) and a couple older clear sets from Hero Arts for the birdie and the sentiments.   Links below to the Paper Smooches sets…

Dot pattern paper is by Paper Studio.  The main image mat is cut with the Perfect Layers tools!  Link in the sidebar or below in the supply links.

This is an A-2 size card (4.25 x 5.5)

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

_MG_6389-001

Next up is a stack of snowman ATC’s (artist trading cards).  The snowman image is from Artistic Outpost, He is painted with Distress reinkers,  the sentiment from Paper Smooches,  the snowflake border is a Martha Stewart punch and the washi tape is from My Minds Eye!  Cute!  love him!

This ATC is 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in.

I’m linking my ATC to the Artistic Outpost January Referral Program…Anything Goes!  yea!  Hope I win! hehe

It’s a dreary day here (weather wise)… working on laundry…need to send a couple cards (imagine that)!  Are you like me?  Making cards but have a hard time getting them in the mail… ugh! Oh and then back to class!  I do love CAS cards almost as much as coloring cards!   Thanks for looking at my post again… I love hearing from you and seeing what you’re up to! Holler if something doesn’t make sense… ‘Email me’ tab under the header!

An ATC and two tags…

Merry Christmas to all!  Every year I’m more amazed at how fast time goes by!  ssssshhhh I don’t want to admit it’s because I’m older and just slower! pout!

Here’s an ATC (artist trading card) I just made for a “four for four” mail swap…had fun with the  In the Meadow stamps and dies from PTI (Papertrey Ink).  The Winter Town stamp is from Hero Arts.  I used Distress stains to ink up the stamp… can’t remember which two now…ugh!   Frosted Lace stickles for the glitter.

For stamping and die cutting the sledder, here’s what I did… I die cut the sledder,  tacked it down with a little tape to my craft mat.  Used the stamp a ma jig to stamp the image on the die cut.  I tried stamping it first and then cutting but I just couldn’t get it lined up good enough to suit me that way.  The partial silhouette of the snowman is an older Stampin Up punch. The sentiment is from PTI also.

A couple gift tags…

This was for our oldest daughter, Heather.  Her birthday is Christmas Day.  The nurses had sewn up flannel stockings for the Christmas Day babies…I have photos of her as a baby in that stocking.  When this Tilda image came out,  I had to have it!  Tilda is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.  Hair E30, 15, 08. 17 and 18 or 19,  can’t remember at the moment.  Skin E000, 00, 21 and cheeks diluted R20.  Green BG93, 96, Red W3, R35, 37, 39 and 59.  Fluff E40,41, 42, 43 and a white gel pen.

I stamped this Hero Arts typewriter on kraft card-stock and on natural card-stock too.  I cut out the natural and adhered it to the typewriter after I stamped the message on it with the stamp a ma jig.  The two holly leaves are an EK Success punch and the bow is an old quickutz die.

I could go on creating for Christmas for months and still have new stuff to use!  Crazy!  My favorite time of year!  What a mess I have in my stamp room! EEK!  oh well,  I’m resting up today and enjoying the Christmas tree a little bit longer!

Here’s what 1800 lights on a 9 foot Christmas tree look like at night and it didn’t tip over once this year!  yea! lol  (my photo skills don’t do it justice!)

Merry Christmas and God bless you!  I appreciate your friendship and support through this blog!

Darby comes with an accessory stamp,  a bird named “Pudge”!  Cute!  Darby and her friend Penelope will be available to purchase in rubber and as a digital image on November 1st. HERE

Darby is inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Paper Trey Ink card-stock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Skin – E000, 00, 01, 21,  Hair – E30, 31, 57, 59,  Eyes – B21, 23,  Reds – R24, E07,  Greens – G40, G85, Background – BG0000, 000, 01.
