CC Designs School Hansel…

This is School Hansel… can you just hear the story about why the paper is crumpled?  The puppy got it!  Hansel is one of the new images for August, illustrated by Christine Wooden for CC Designs.  He was really fun to color!  The pencil he’s sitting on, the “write on” sentiment and the two tickets are from the new for August, School Logos set. The tickets are cut out using the Ticket die.

I used two of the new for August CC Designs Cutters dies,  the banner and the apple.  I told Christine about my banner on this card and that we needed it as a die and this is the month!  YEA!  Lots of potential for paper fun again!  For this card I wanted it to be like the chalkboards we had when I was growing up!

School Hansel and his pencil are stamped on Letraset cartridge card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers.   The pattern papers I used are from the Basic Grey 6×6 Oxford pad. The Typewriter die cut letters are a Tim Holtz Sizzlet die called Typeset.  My paper pieces are all edged with Distress ink and the ink blending tool… layers are cut with the Perfect Layers Tools…

 

I’m not writing the ATS blog posts anymore but you’ll still find links to all the new stamps and dies in my posts here!  Thank you!

Thanks for stopping by today!

CCDesigns…A Little Bit of Magic Fairy and Sentiments Preview Day One and Printworks coupon!

Today the ATS DT is previewing a NEW whimsical, charming rubber stamp kit, illustrated by Amy Young for CC Designs …Sweet November’s A Little Bit of Magic Fairy and Sentiment set.  

 

“Thank you Fairy Much!” is from the NEW Fairy sentiment set and “have a magical day” is from the Magical Wishes Sentiment set.  I used my stamp a ma jig to stamp the sentiments… pull down the tutorial tab under the header picture for a video on how to use it to stamp sentiments.  The Mushrooms are from the Mushroom stamp set.

I had to use the Leafy Branch die too…

I used sketch #43 from Freshly Made Sketches  blog, HERE.

The fairies are stamped on Hammermill Color Copy 80# cover card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink  and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

Skin – E0000, 000, 00, 11 and diluted R20 for cheeks

Yellow dress fairy –
hair is E50, 51, 53, 55
dress and wings are E11, 13, 15, 18

Pink dress fairy –
hair is the E30’s
dress is R11, 12, 14
wings are BG70, 72

Green dress fairy –
hair is E50, YR31, YR21, YR23
dress is YG91, 93
wings are R11, 12

The background is BG70 colored all over…

I used an old Martha Stewart border punch,  cut it down to a size that would fit through the Quilling Creations crimper so it’s “ruffly” looking!  Makes me happy! hehe  The butterfly is an EK Success punch.

Thanks so much for joining me for this preview post!  I’ll be back tomorrow with another cute card you won’t want to miss!  Take care!

Start HERE…

Growing up we didn’t have a TV until I was in 9th grade… we played outside every spare minute and when we were inside we played church, library, store, school and oh, I loved playing table games! So that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw these new images for July illustrated by Christine Wooden. They’re called Meoples… well… that immediately brought to mind because of the rhyme…the pre-school Sunday School song where we locked our fingers, made a steeple and sang open the door and see all the people! Well, that translated to see all the Meoples in my mind! lol Next it translated to a game board! So here you have it from a non-candy eating person… Candyland meets the Meoples!!! Start HERE!

 NEW for July dies are the Olive Branch, two on the die,  going opposite directions!  Love that!  I only used one complete one behind the large Phlox Flower, the rest are parts… pretty cool I think! hehe  The 8 Petal and branch die… the centers on the Phlox Flowers are from this die… I’ll show the rest on Thursday.  The awesome thing about it is, there are two different flowers and multiples of each so you don’t have to run it through the die cut machine so many  times! yea!  There is also a stem for the flowers to “grow” on!!! woohoo! There’s a new Button die and Sweet Treats die!  You’ll see them some more this week during previews and everything will be up for sale in the store THURSDAY NIGHT at 8 P.M. CST

“Hey Cupcake and Have a sweet day” are part of the NEW AmyR Stamps SWEET Sentiment set!  So awesome!  Love the sentiment sets from CC Designs… so many ways to combine messages!  Scroll down for my video using the sentiments and positioning them on your creations.  It’s also listed under the pulldown tutorial tab at the top under the header.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

 ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

oh fun… I wanted a simple border… going along with the sketch I followed and I wanted to use something from the CC Designs Cutters die line so… I got out my magnetic holders and started looking…hehe… yep. that delicate little scallop border is from the Christmas Bulb Border die!!!  So lacy and feminine looking!  love it!  I had to use the Fence die!   Haven’t used it for a couple weeks.  Forgot to punch hearts in the pickets though! boo… My videos for how to’s on the fence are under the tutorial tab at the top of this page also.

This 6×6 pattern paper is from a Fancy Pants Summer pad… I doubt that it’s available anymore.  I can’t use this paper up fast enough!  I’m trying though! lol

Enjoy your special day…

This sentiment makes me think of my friend Annette (a very talented stamper, you can see some of her work on our stamp club blog HERE) who is celebrating 50 years of marriage on Sunday!  I think her DH is the gardener though but still… it is a very special celebration!  Congrats Annette and Dick!

This is a new gal, Tilly from the Sweet November Garden Gnome collection.  Bless her heart… workin’ away… I’m sure her roses are gorgeous and her tomatoes truly red and tasty!  There are two more of these cuties and you can see them in the Preview post if you click over to the ATS blog, HERE.  Four Preview days this week for All That Scraps!  That’s a lot of NEW and you can see it and purchase it in the STORE tonight at 8 p.m. CST.  YES, that’s earlier… yea!  I like earlier myself! = )

The sentiment I used is from the NEW All About Dad Sentiment Set.  Lots of great phrases and words that can be used all year round too!

I love stamping on the cloud dies… and there’s my fave Leafy Branch die… perfect for garden greenery!!!  Check out that sun!  That’s the Sunflower die!  Awesome CC Designs Cutters dies!   I pierced my papers and hand stitched with buttonhole thread.  The little rose is from Prima and the 6×6 paper pad I used is Pretty Party from Crate paper…very cool pad!  A pink piece with strawberries,  a piece with sewing pattern pieces on it… 2 each of 18 different patterns… I used five of them on this card!

I stamped Tilly on Canson Manga 150# Drawing card with Colorbox Wicked Black Archival ink and colored her with Ranger Distress Markers.  So fun!  love these markers… no I don’t love any markers better than another….. I LOVE them all!   = )

One last picture… yesterday was a family day here… makes a grandma so happy.  I have to share the artwork from Jace.  One of our grandsons that will be two in July!  He’s an artist!  He can make a masterpiece outside the lines!  Pretty sure that pink butterfly down there got colored by big sister with a marker…. she just couldn’t leave it! lol

Jace used AmyR Stamps Butterfly Sentiment set… I stamped them because it had to be waterproof ink and it’s on watercolor paper. Into the art museum a.k.a. mom’s smash book! lol

Sassy Emma…

Emma of Sugarplums fame is  back! Standing tall in the strawberry patch!  Love the sentiment too…part of the NEW Berry Logos cling stamp set.  The Strawberry die comes with the berry, the top and the blossom… so sweet!  I used the Dottie Trim Border die for the dirt.  The fence is the new die from last month… my video on how I shaped it is HERE.  The pattern paper pad is from We R Memory Keepers and the twine is from My Minds Eye.  The stitching lines stamp is from Sandylion… it’s discontinued but HERE is a picture of it, so you know what you’re looking for.

I colored Emma with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  Skin – ivory, vanilla, oatmeal, apricot and soft peach for her cheeks.  Hair – Champagne, Nutmeg and Auburn, all Flexmarkers.   Shirt and headband – Pastel Pink and Berry.  Jeans – Pastel Beige, Soft Khaki (flex) and Khaki.  Shoes – same as jeans only add Umber.

I love the dirt/Dottie Trim die cut out of the pattern paper but the fence,  not so much.  Funny how that works… ok,  not so funny when you’re all done! lol   I’ll quit looking at the picture and go eat some strawberries!

Sassy Emma, the Strawberry die and Berry Logos are all part of the May release… they’ll be in the store Thursday night at 8 p.m. CST, HERE.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the creations by the rest of the ATS Design Team HERE.  While you’re there be sure to link up on yesterday’s preview post and today’s!

Bee-trice… be prepared to smile!

Here’s A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E.  Bee-trice!  Bee-trice and Berry Beatrice are part of the May Release for CC Designs!  LOVE!

Beatrice is stamped with Colorbox Wicked Black Archival ink on Canson Manga heavyweight drawing paper and colored with Distress markers… I do love these markers!!!  So if you can’t decide but you think you want them,  I’m here to tell you…they’re GREAT!  I do think having the right paper makes all the difference though.

I used four markers for her hair…Scattered Straw,  teeny bit of Mustard Seed…thought it was a bit something, so I added in a bit of Antique Linen and finally Wild Honey.

For her face I used…Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Dried Marigold…scribbled on an imagine sheet from my Stamp a ma jig and mixed together with a wet #2 Grumbacher paint brush (Goldenedge 4620 Round).  Her cheeks are Spun Sugar scribbled on the sheet and a wet paint brush.

Her Body is Black Soot, Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed.

I painted the ticket with these same markers and edged with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.  Pretty much all my paper edges are done, the same way.

I used the NEW ticket die (comes with two sizes) that matches the NEW Bees Knees Logo set.  The Buzz Ticket and Happy Bee-Day are from that set also.  (Happy Bee-day is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink)  I had to use the Grass Border die and the Flower Border die… LOVE them both!  So… guess how I crimped the grass that I cut with the Grass Border die???!!!  There is an awesome tool (link below) from Quilling Creations… called the Deluxe Crimper… it does strips of paper up to approximately 3/8 in. wide and you can choose between two sizes of crimping…  oh me oh my… I fell in love!  I love little things anyway and just the thought of having little crimping makes my heart beat faster! hahahahahaha   So you’ll be seeing lots of little bits crimped for awhile!

Pattern paper from the October Afternoon Seaside 8×8 paper pad.

Holler if I missed any info you need!

Bee-trice and I are buzzing off to start another card for tomorrow!  Come back for a NEW Swiss Pixie and a NEW Sugarplum.

Thanks for visiting today….stampers are the best kind of people!!!  That would be YOU!

Penelope and Zip…

Penelope and Zip definitely brighten the day!  Super cute!  I stamped them both with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Hammermil Color Copy Cover,  cut them out and colored them with Copic Sketch markers.  Penelope’s dress colors are BG11, 53, 75.  Hair colors are E50, 51, 31, 34.  Shoes are E40’s.  Zip is colored with YG00,01,02,03.

I used my favorite die ever to look like tree branches up in the left corner and sprigs down with the sentiment.  The little flowers I used today are from a Martha Stewart border punch… teeny four leaf sweeties.  I lay them on a mouse pad and push down in the center with the smallest tip embossing stylus.  I did put a black mark in the center and a teeny bit of R81 too.

Amazing again how easy it is to layer with the Perfect Layers Tools/Rulers… I used my Omnigrid 1 in x 6 in. ruler and mini rotary cutter to cut around the sentiment… then cut the layers with the Perfect Layers Tools 1/16th in.   Sweet!  love them! (link on the right in my sidebar)  Yes,  I am an enabler… but I will never tell you about something that I’m not completely sold on too!

What a happy dragonfly!  I sparkled up his wings with Distress stickles.. the clear one… Man that stuff comes out in a blob!  I had to spread it around with my paper piercer… the hole is too big in the bottle or I just don’t know how to do it!   I do like how it looks though… whew… he’s so cute all cut out!

Woodland Wreath…

Oh, I had fun getting gluey with this new die set from CC Designs for February!  It’s called Acorns and Leaves. I used several CC Designs dies and Ranger black enamel in the flower centers.  The flowers are the smallest flowers from the Phlox Flower die and the Five Point Flower die.  I doubled the kraft paper cord and tied a bow,  so I’d have double loops on both sides of the knot.

The sentiment is from the NEW AmyR Stamps sentiment set called Be Happy.  On the inside I made another little bouquet with an acorn and leaves and stamped the sentiment from this set that says, best birthday wishes. 

Click over to the ATS blog to see what the other ATS designers created for today using these new dies!  Totally inspiring!  I love this Woodland theme that Christine came up with!  AND… be sure to link up for a chance to win… on all three posts! woohoo! Who swallowed a happy pill? me?  nah… just happy to be here!

Several months ago I finally took the plunge and ordered the Perfect Layers rulers!  I was so tired of cutting card mats and re-cutting card mats and trying to achieve the perfect margin on all four sides!!!   WELL… I can tell you the answer to the problem!!!  THESE TOOLS are awesome!!!  Time saving!!! Keep you from pulling your hair out wonderful!!!!! Hallelujah!  My sanity is still in tact!  Quit laughing! hehe

I will make a video showing how I use them but in the meantime… check out the video in the store.  If you order through my link you’ll save 5%!   If you love having perfect layers like I do,  you will LOVE these tools!

You can scroll through the cards on my blog and you’ll see I’m rather biased to the 1/16 th in. mat… oh,  it makes me HAPPY!  so very happy…just the time it saves alone!  I’m gonna ask Julie if they’d consider making a ruler for 3/32 nds…  now that would be divine!  Now you know… I’m crazy! lol  Well,  come on… don’t you think we need something between 1/16 th and 1/8 th inch too???!!!

ok – I’ll shut up about it…

Thanks for the visit!  ttul!

here’s what I used today to create this humdinger of a card! hohoho  – now where did that come from?!

I went with a CAS card today…although the simple part sure can’t count toward the amount of time spent! I find that clean and simple takes me almost as long as the other kind of cards I normally do!!!  Wacko! It doesn’t help when you make booboos!  haha!

The sentiment is from CC Designs AmyR Stamps Mixed Messages Sentiment set… the embossing is done with Nestabilities Labels 18.  Piper is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Papertrey ink select white card-stock and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  Hair E50, YR31, 21, 23, 24 and E37; Skin E000, 00, 21 and a diluted (w/R00) R20 for the cheeks; Present BG01, 02, 05; Bow W3, R35, 37, 39.  White Signo  Gel pen for the white dots.

Monkey Zoo celebrates!

Are you smiling?  This little monkey is new for CC Designs January release and called Monkey Zoo.  Comes with it’s own birthday sentiment too!  I was washing up a few pans, thinking…wanting something fun to create with this cutie and thought circus tent!  Well,  sure enough,  googled and found this card HERE.  So cute and easy to piece together too!

I printed Heidi’s pattern and then held it behind my pattern paper by my desk light so I could see through it to cut it out.  To make the card I used a piece of card-stock scored at folded at 4 1/4 in. wide.  I held the tent base piece on top of the folded card and cut on the tent pattern sides.  Adhered it to the tent top.  I used a toothpick on the top to hold the flag and bead.  On the back I cut a piece of card-stock the same color as the folded card and glued it over the top so that the back side is all covered and the same color.  Cute!  Easy too.

Inside…

another side view…

and from the front…

When I was in grade school…one of the gals in our class had a pet monkey!  Crazy….I’m not much of an animal lover, so of course I didn’t hold it!  eek! lol  They are entertaining in the zoo, that’s for sure!

Thanks for your visit and comments….I appreciate it!

I had fun again this afternoon playing with the NEW Leafy Branch and Phlox dies… I don’t think they’d hire me for flower arranging at the florist but I sure enjoy trying with paper!   The dies and new stamps are in the store now… links below!

On the inside I used the Friends sentiment from the Handy Greetings Amy R Stamps set.  I edged everything with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.
