Summer Camp!!! Summer Card Camp that is! – Day 1

SCC2_participant1

Hi Everyone!  Well, I’m excited today because Summer Card Camp 2 has started!  Unfortunately I didn’t participate in Card Camp 1, but I know I won’t be disappointed as I have LOVED every onlinecardclass that I have EVER taken.  I’ve tried others, but I just love the way this one is set up and so, if it’s not broke, you don’t fix it!

Anyway, I’m still a bit under the weather, but I was able to watch the entire class AND make a card as well.  I had high hopes of making more than one, but well… there’s this thing that gets in the way, it’s call … WORK.  We haven’t won the LOTTO, so off I must go.  I really enjoyed the class as usual.  Unfortunately I can’t share too many details with you other than my card itself, but, I highly recommend you check the class out.  Go… go right now!!!  Wait… check out my card first and THEN go check it out by clicking right here.

Here is the color palette I used for my card:

And here is the card that I made.  Have I told you yet how much I adore this stamp set by My Favorite Things?  Oh right.. yeah.. I have!  😀

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  I’ll catch you again tomorrow!

His & Hers – Day 4 and a Bonus Card!

HH_participant

Hello Everyone!  I know it’s been a few days or so, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been up to anything crafty!  I made these next two cards last week for His & Her’s Online Card Classes, but haven’t found the time to post them yet.  Yesterday I spent the entire day scrapbooking for National Scrapbook Day!!!  So, back to cards I am!  I’ve really been enjoying this class, but I’m not surprised.  I’ve enjoyed every one I’ve every taken.  Here are the cards I’ve made with MUCH inspiration from the beautifully talented Jennifer McGuire!  Here is my “HER” card:

And here is my “HIS” card!

I hope you enjoyed them.  See below for a list of supplies.

Now for my bonus card.  Izzy (my 5 year old) had a birthday party to go to today, so I made her little friend a card.  I hope she likes it!  Printed ribbon – Do you KNOW how difficult it is to tie printed (on one side) into a bow?!?!?  VERY! – but I think I managed it!  The image is “Gracie” by Kathryne and can be purchased at Whimsy Stamps. Enjoy!

Hello Everyone! This will be short and sweet today. I’m really liking OnlineCardClasses.Com – His & Hers! You really need to check it out. Anyway here is my contribution for today. I chose to use Operation Write Home’s Sketch Challenge for the week and make a His & Hers. Sorta kill 2 birds with one stone…Eh… what a horrible analogy. Anyway, you know what I mean.

Here is Sketch Challenge #170:

And here is my take on this challenge done as a “His & Hers”.

His:

I hope you like them! It was a simple card, but some nights simple is good! I’ve been thinking that I really need to win the lottery so I can stay home and craft all day! 😀 This work thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be!

And now for the bonus cards!  I had told you in my last post that I had attended a 3 day crop.  Well, here are a couple cards I created during that crop.  Enjoy!

His & Hers – Day 1

Hello Everyone!  Yes, it’s been awhile.  I attended a 3 day crop this past weekend and had a lovely time!  I met a few new scrap-booking buddies and I’m thrilled!  Really nice group of girls.  Anyway, I spent a few days or so before the crop getting ready, ya know… packing everything I own and then some.  So very thankful for my teenager that lugged it all up and down the stairs without hardly complaining at all.  I had a great time socializing, and getting a few things done, however… it was so nice to get back to my own bed!

Today was the first day of Online Card Classes –  His & Hers!!!  How exciting!!! I really need this class you see, because, well… I’m a her and I have 2 her children and well… I’m good at “her” cards, but no so much “his”.  I’m CERTAIN this class will help.  Oh and if you’ve never taken one of their classes you really need to check it out!

Here is my “HER” card.  I just *LOVE* this stamp set and well, I hope you guys never get sick of it because well… it’s my favorite and really has become my “go to” set.  I really think Kristina hit the mark with this one… all around.  This set coupled with Hero Arts – Mid-Tone Shadow inks – a match made in heaven.  I hope you like it.

Now here is my “HIS” card and I have to say… I really like it!  I used a shadow stamp technique – one I’ve not ever used before and well… I dig it!  I hope you enjoy it!

I can’t see what day 2 has in store!

Pattern Play & Some Challenges

PP_participant

Hello everyone! It’s been awhile or at least quite a few days.  I have to say, once again, I LOVED Pattern Play from OnlineCardClasses and I can’t wait for the next class!  I wasn’t able to make too many cards during the class, but the last few I have made are definitely inspired by what I learned. I like this card because it’s simple and it’s a great way to use up those large patterned papers that you’re just not so sure of.

IMG_6261

Here is another card that was inspired by Pattern Play.  I also used a sketch from RetroSketches and will enter it into their weekly challenge.  I can’t say I’m a fan of paper weaving, but… I gave it a shot.  Here is the sketch:

rs56

And the card I made from the sketch.  It’s okay… I do like the paper I chose!

IMG_6263

My final card for this post was inspired by the weekly sketch challenge at Operation Write Home.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card.  I don’t know about you… but I just HEART those Hero Art Mid-Tone Shadow inks!  They are YUMMY!

Enjoy!

Peace Out…
