Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Die With Inky Impressions Lili’s Chicks Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! I’m getting some birthday cards done for July and early August birthdays!  I know… we’re behind…it’s been a family upheaval Summer here! I wanted to share this card and a couple more tomorrow and then it’s back to Memory Box and poppystamps!  I’m so glad to be getting these cards done though and to the grandkids!  They’ve been troopers!

I love using the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel die set. The kids love it too but who wouldn’t!  I haven’t made one for an adult yet but I think they’re fun for kids of all ages!


I stamped Inky Impressions stamp Lili’s Chicks on 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Black Ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  This card is for our granddaughter Genevieve, we call her Gena.  She loves her chicks, chickens, kittens and dogs!  and her Grandma! haha

It’s been fun to spend some time coloring.  I used to color these images a lot… if you look in the Inky Impressions category over on the sidebar, it’ll take you to some of my other cards from years ago when I was on the Inky Impressions Design Team a couple times.  Some of my favorite cards!

You can find the Inky Impressions images on ebay … their online store isn’t open anymore.

You’re the pick of the patch!

Lili and I agree….YOU’RE the pick of the patch!  It’s that time of year!  Pumpkins everywhere!  So,  I had this “idea” yesterday a.m. (so glad when I have one! lol)  to make this old fashioned looking pumpkin.  Can’t think of what the stuff is called…seems like Martha Stewart sells it… oh, maybe it’s honeycomb???  That is the look I was going for anyway…

I  ♥  it!  I punched 7 Punch Bunch ovals and folded them in half and taped them together.  The stem is a piece of brown card-stock that I rolled around my paper piercer and then glued the end and glued it to the leaf behind… isn’t it just the clever – ist thing?!!! hahahaha…the silliest things make me happy!  The “vine”,  don’t tell anyone but it’s really a holly die cut from Sizzix…ugh… but I liked it as a vine, think outside the box…see you didn’t realize it was holly,  did you?! I don’t really want to know! lol  It’s a cool die…one of those 12 in. long Sizzlets,  has a NOEL on it and a cool frame. The item # of the die is 656293.

My card today is for the Inky Impressions Challenge blog post – “anything goes”… click on over and join the fun!  The challenge is for two weeks,  can’t wait to see what you create!  You gotta top my pumpkin!!! lol

A side shot… (of that pumpkin)  : )

This really is about Lili (leelee) and her pumpkin…not about my pumpkin but I guess I shouldn’t write posts at night cuz I get silly! *cough*  You will find this awesome Lili and the other new releases from Inky Impressions, HERE.  Lili is colored with Copic Sketch Markers on Papertrey Ink card-stock.  Her hair is the E30’s, jacket is BV01 & 02, jeans are E40, 41 and 42, pumpkin is YR00, 02, 04, 07, YG93 & 95, skin is E000,00,01 and diluted R20 (R000)  Do you know if you can dilute a color with blender fluid?

I used Oval Nestabilities HERE and Labels 10 HERE.  The super fun sentiment is from Amy R’s Autumn sentiment set HERE.  K & Co. pattern papers… Stampin Up Old olive and Cajun “something” card-stock. Making Memories brads.  All the papers are edged with Distress inks HERE.

I used the sketch from the Everybody Art Challenge blog and at Stamp Something Challenge blog, the theme is Something Punchy!

Happy Friday!  I’m off to our area stamp club Christmas party this afternoon. Looking forward to it!  Thanks for stopping by and happy pumpkin making!!!

Rolled flowers,  hand stitching, stamping, coloring and punching,  oh and a little distressing!

I used quilting thread and a quilting teeny needle (size 12) to backstitch around the oval.  I pierced the holes first.  I need to find a little heavier thread though…last time I did this the thread was too heavy…gotta find that happy medium!  This Lili is so cute licking her ice cream cone – She looks like she could be taking a break from working at a drive up ice cream shoppe…one thing about an ice cream shoppe,  you know it’ll always be cool inside!  So… “have some ice cream”  is from a clear stamp set by Hero Arts HERE.

I tried rolled flowers (how to HERE) …I like it!  A one and a quarter inch circle punch for the larger and one inch for the four smaller flowers. The branch is from the Punch Bunch.  The heart stick pin is from Fancy Pants and the pink heart pearl is from Hero Arts HERE.

You can buy Lili Ice Cream HERE,  the border punch HERE,  the nestabilities oval dies HERE,  stamping ink HERE,  Bazzill 3mm teeny brads HERE,  Copics for coloring HERE and the Tim Holtz distressing tool HERE.

Linking to these Challenge blogs…

Have a relaxing and thankful Memorial weekend!  ♥  I appreciate you coming by to visit!

Spring Cleaning…(did I say that?!)

My card for Inky Impressions Challenge #35….

yep, that time of year… I always find myself thinking when I’m cleaning…some kind of rescue mechanism!  I end up stopping and going to do what I thought of and then who knows when getting back to cleaning….been a long pause around here! lol

I used Lili’s Cleaning Day rubber stamp from Inky Impressions Rubber Stamps…I’ll tell you a secret…ha! you probably already know!  I colored the dots on her shirt with a white signo/uniball gel pen,  let them dry and then colored right over them with the pink copics!!!  Didn’t even have to go back and wipe off the white…the dried white ink repelled the copic marker perfect and made for easy coloring!

  • Lili is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (want a discount on your Inky Impressions order? Join us at the Inky Yahoo Group for details – link to the yahoo group is on the challenge blog)
  • colored with Copic Sketch Markers
  • K &Co. pattern paper
  • Bazzill card-stock
  • Martha Stewart Spring border punch – little butterflies are from this Butterfly border punch
  • Quickutz 4×4 flower die (a bunch on here and I layered them up)
  • Sizzix leaf branch (came in a set of four,  the medium size sizzlets)
  • Sentiment from Wordsworth
  • Itty Bitty 3 mm brads by Bazzill
  • background stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms
  • EK Success oval punch for the rug

Nickie’s Birdie from Inky Impressions…


Here’s a new super cute image to color by Inky Impressions… I loved coloring Nickie’s Birdie but I have never tried so hard to get a good photo in all my card creating life!  lol   Her shoes are sure cute in red!  I still remember the pair of red shoes I had in eleventh grade…oh,  I LOVED those shoes!

Maybe this close up will show the detail a little better….I hope! ugh!

Nickie is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I used the elongated rectangle nestabilities dies….I really use that size a lot…it surprises me! The border punches are from Martha Stewart, I just used the lattice part of the deep edger….pattern paper is Quite Contrary from My Minds Eye.  I made the flowers with Nellie Snellen punches.  The sentiment “a little birdie told me” is from Hero Arts.

I made this to play in the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog this week… a fun sketch,  although with just using the corner of the scallop 12×12 paper,  I had to take a little liberty with the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by ….Happy Weekend!

Birthday card for Lilli….

Pink….Lilli loves pink! So, I colored up this Lili (leelee) Fairy from Inky Impressions in ALL pink! I think she’ll like it!  I hope, she’ll love it!  The challenge right now at Inky Impressions Challenge blog is to use pink and hearts…gonna link up but I don’t have any hearts on here! bum…oh well,  we know these images are all “heart”! lol  Papertake Weekly Challenge blog is predominantly pink…well,  I nailed that and Cute Card Thursday’s challenge is fairy fantastic!

Here she is close up…SOOOOO CUTE! I love these Inky Lili stamps!


She is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copic sketch markers.  This is my first time to try the flourishy bling!  very cool!  I am surprised how easy it was to manipulate and get it in the right place!  I uesd the Spica clear glitter pen on her wings,  it’s so subtle,  the camera missed it! lol  I love the look IRL though…just the right touch.

The flowers are Nellie Snellen punches and embossers…very cool and available for pre-order at  They are from the Netherlands.

Here’s what I did inside…


There’s that Martha Stewart crown around the page corner… I used the border and corner punch set on the front.  The sentiment stamped on the front,  “Bright Wishes” and on the inside, “for a Birthday that outshines all the others“, in Versafine Onyx Black ink,  is from Printworks….tons of great birthday sentiments here... check out their clear stamp sets too….some of their images are available in both wood and clear!  I used the Stampamajig to get the placement of the Bright Wishes right where I wanted it on the front. Pearls are from Hero Arts.  Teeny brads on the front are from Bazzill (coming soon to 7Kids).  I think I purchased  the little silver things under the brads at JoAnns.  Thinking the ribbon is May Arts.


Now to finish a couple more cards for our family January birthday party on Sunday afternoon! Happy Weekend to you and thanks for coming by and seeing my “show and tell”! You know, it’s no wonder we liked Kindergarten! lol

Good NEWS…  a Magnolia card from the new release coming soon to this blog…but in the meantime… 7Kids has a big re-stock of images…I had to get some more yesterday and oh,  the pre-order for the Winter release is up too,  right here!  It’s called Raising the Ceiling
