Meljen's Designs Sketch Challenge

Before I get rolling with my post, let me apologize in advance if my post looks a little strange today. Blogger has been driving me crazy during the last several days by either removing my line breaks and adding extra line breaks where they don't belong. Since it is getting late on Wednesday night and I am trying one last time to fix up my post, I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.


Now back to our regularly scheduled programming....


It's Thursday so it's time for the Meljen's Designs new release and new challenge. DT member Diana Kronquist created a great sketch for us to use in our challenge this week. For my card, I used the new Victorian Bird Cage image paired up with my favorite October Afternoon papers.



Here is a look at the sketch for the challenge this week. You can see the challenge rules and link up your project on the Meljen's Designs blog.




Here is a peek at the new release. These will be available in the Whimsy Stamps store today.

Sentimental Sundays Cute & Cuddly

It's time for a new Sentimental Sundays challenge. This week our challenge is "Cute & Cuddly". Don't forget a sentiment! We also have a special guest designer joining our team this week. My 9-year old daughter has joined the fun. Please stop by her blog to check out her project (and leave a comment. She loves them!)




I made this flower using some old fabric and tulle that I found in the basement. The tulle is pink and was left over from a princess birthday party for my daughter from several years ago. I was inspired by this tutorial from Linda, the Funkie Junkie. The textured, brown piece was punched out of a Starbucks coffee sleeve. I love the texture of these things.

Music Saves My Soul

I have been on a Grace Potter kick this week. Grace Potter and the Nocturals has been one of my favorite groups for the last several years.

I couldn't decide which songs to share this week, so I picked two. The first is one that makes me want to move and my Jazzercise friends should recognize it. (If it makes you want to dance, come join us in class!) The second song is much slower but shows off her beautiful voice and song writting abilities.

If you have a song you would like to share, link up on Marcea's blog!

Have a great week end!








P.S. If you liked those two, HERE you can see the video for "Paris" which is starting to get some air play and I even heard in a commercial.

Warm Fuzzies

I am soooo ready for spring. I thought we were on our way. The robins and blue birds are back. Some of the trees are starting to bud. And then the temperatures dropped and *gasp* we even got a little bit more snow. I know, I know.... I should be used to it living in Wisconsin but what can I say? I was really hoping that winter was gone for awhile.

To remind myself that spring is right around the corner, I decided to make a card using some spring colors and this adorable caterpillar. I usually am not a big fan of caterpillars, but there is just something about this one that I love.





This little guy is no longer available in the Whimsy Store but you can find lots of other delightful rubber and digi stamps there.

I hope you have a wonderful week end. Thank you for stopping by.


Supplies:
  • Stamps: Warm Fuzzies from Bug Hugs Creations on Whimsy Stamps
  • Papers: Papertrey white & ripe avocado CS, My Mind's Eye Pretty Please papers
  • Inks: None
  • Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Lotus Border Petites, Big Scalloped Circles & Pose-Abilities Daisy Heads, Copic Markers

You're a Hoot!

Happy Thursday! How is your week going? All week I have had the feeling that I am forgetting something. I keep checking my calendar and I look clear but I have that nagging feeling.... I guess I'll see what pops up.







I am trying to stock up on boyish/masculine cards to send into OWH. (I am still working hard to fill my box and get it sent!) I used Fuzzy Owl from Meljen's Designs (on Whimsy Stamps) to make a campy/boyish birthday card.

I have liked this image ever since it came out but, for some reason, I have never used him. Well, I guess there is no time like the present. I was especially inspired to put him on card since I just watched the movie "Legends of the Guardians" with my family. Have you seen it? We enjoyed it and really liked the educational bit about owls included on the disc.

Be sure to stop by the Meljen's Designs blog to see the new releases for the week and join in our "Be Creative with your Punches" challenge. Here is a preview of the new digis. You can see the projects some of the DT created with the new images on the Meljen's Designs blog.



Stay tuned for more information on a blog hop starting on April 1st to celebrate the 1st birthday of Meljen's Designs. As always, there will be chances for you to win some Meljen's Designs digis. Watch for more information soon.

Sentimental Sundays - Let's Get Sentimental

Wow this week has flown by! I can't believe it is already time for the new Sentimental Sundays challenge. This week we are challenging you to "Get Sentimental" with us. Use a sentiment as a focal point for your project.



I love cards that use a sentiment for a focal point. I used a sentiment from the Gratitude Sentiments digital stamp set created by Raindrop Echo Designs (available on Whimsy Stamps). Verve Sketch VLVMar2011 (week 3) was the starting point for my card. Cream seam binding was dyed using an ink pad to match my papers. In real life, it is the exact color but the color changes a bit in the photo.
.
I hope you will join for our "Let's Get Sentimental" challenge at the Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog.

Thank you for stopping by!



Supplies:

  • Stamps: Gratitude Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs available on Whimsy Stamps
  • Papers & CS: PaperTrey kraft CS, Close To My Heart Perfect Day paper pack

Meljen's Designs - Feeling A Bit Dotty

Spring is coming! Melissa of Meljen's Designs is getting us in the spring mood with some new little baby bunnies!! These are just the sweetest, cutest, cuddliest little loves ever! I just know you're going to love them!




I used Cuddle Bun Love to make a card to welcome a baby girl. I have the sentiment "Welcome Sweet Baby" on the inside because I just couldn't fit on the front.

Have you noticed all the stitching on my cards lately. I am really loving my new little sewing machine. But, let me let you in on a little secret. I sewed the front of the card to the card base. Not only that but I sewed the card closed. No wonder the needle didn't seem to want to go through. I guess 4 layers of PTI card stock might be a bit much for my cheap little machine. Never fear, I made a new base to put my card front on. Of course I might need a second mortgage on my house to pay for postage.....

Here is a peek at all the images release this week. They are perfect for the new Meljen's Designs Challenge, "Use Dots".


Thank you for stopping by! Happy Friday and have a great week end!



Supplies:


  • Stamps: Cuddle Bun Love by Meljen's Designs on Whimsy Stamps
  • Papers & CS: Neenah crest solar white CS, Georgia Pacific CS, Graphic 45 Baby 2 Bride, misc. brown CS
  • Inks: None
  • Tools: Sewing machine, Copic markers

Pink Cat Studio - Baby Love

I was so excited when Melissa of Pink Cat Studio asked me to be a guest designer for the new release this week. The Gnome family has a new addition, Bibi.


I chose to use the Gnome couple with baby. Aren't they just the cutest? I plan on giving this card to my DD's teacher when she has her baby. Since we don't know if it is a boy or a girl, I tried to keep the card kind of gender nuetral. (**Edited - She had a baby boy last night!)

Here is a peek at the entire release of the gnome family and their newest addition. Aren't they cute?




Be sure to stop by the Pink Cat Studio blog to see all the creations from the PCS design team.

Whimsy Stamp Sneak Peek

To celebrate the release, there will be a blog hop with prizes starting at the Whimsy Inspiration blog on Wednesday, March 16th, at noon EST. You won't want to miss it!




For my card today, I used Benny & Joon Have Cake by Crissy Armstrong. I just love this fawn and bunny, they remind me of Bambi and Thumper. It took me a few tries to get the image colored how I wanted. I'm still in the learning curve with Copic markers, but I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. (Did you see it was used for the blog hop button? I know it's not much but it made me really happy!)

AmberInk - Fan Mail

Awww, I'm feeling kind of sad. This is my last project for my term as an Amber Ink torchbearer. I know I will still be using their fun images and papers but it just won't be the same. On Friday, March 17th, I'll recap my Amber Ink projects and the following Monday the new torchbearers will be announced.







This is another card that I made for Operation Write Home. I am really working on getting my box filled so I can ship it out soon. I had to use Mod Kitch Kitsch and Say It Like It's 1959!. These sets are so perfectly punny - I love them! If you aren't comfortable using digi stamps, they also come in clear stamp sets.

Before I go today, I wanted to tell you about a new line of digi stamps on Amber Ink. The line is called "Get Them While They're Hot - Sheen On" It is a line of sentiments inspired by Charlie Sheen and his recent rants. I soooo wanted to make a card with one this week end but I ran out of time. Go check them out HERE.



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week!

Feeling Green

It's time for the new Sentimental Sunday's challenge. This week we are challenging you to "Go Green!" You can interpret however you feel, St. Patrick's day, the color green, or even recycling, but be sure to include a sentiment.

I decided to make a card for St. Patrick's day using a new, precolored digi from Meljen's Designs and a sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs. Using a precolored digi made putting a card together really quick. These papers are out of my stash. I bought them a few years ago when a local scrapbooking store went out of business and they have just been sitting there waiting to be used.




I am looking forward to making my Guinness-Braised Beef Brisket & Quick Cook Cabbage and cracking open a Guinness while listening to my Celtic playlist on Thursday. What do you do for St. Patrick's day?

I hope you will join us in the "Go Green!" challenge at Sentimental Sundays. Thank you for stopping by!

I just stumbled across this and had to add it.

OWH Bunny Hop with Amber Ink + Blog Candy


Welcome to my stop on the Bunny Hop for Operation Write Home. If you came from Velda's blog you're on the track. If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, the hop starts at the OWH Stars & Stamps blog where you can find all the blog hop details and complete list of all the stops. You will want to read to the bottom of my post to see how you can win some Amber Ink blog candy.

For my card, I decided to use Jen Del Muro's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) which is being sponsored by Amber Ink for the month of March.




I used Bunny Hug from Amber Ink. I think this is just the sweetest image which can be used for all kinds of occasions. I actually love the entire Bunny Love line. The the bunnies are colored with Copic makers with a little Fun Flock added to their tails. Of course I had to use October Afternoon papers. (I love OA!)

I hope you will get a chance to play along with SFYTT this month for your chance to win some Amber Ink product. See the SYTT blog for the details.

Remember, if you would like to send in cards to OWH for the spring holidays, there are a couple of deadlines you should keep in mind. The Easter deadline is March 18th and the Mother's Day deadline is March 31st. You can check the OWH Mail Room for more information on how to send in your cards.

If you have time, check out the blog comments from our heroes who have received cards from OWH. They truly appreciate the cards they are sent. I love reading these messages.





Your next stop on the OWH Bunny Hop is PAPER ADDICT CATHERINE. If you get lost along the way or if there is a broken link, you will be able to find the complete blog hop list on the OWH Stars & Stamps blog.





Now for the details on how to win the blog candy. I am being sponsored by Amer Ink today and will be giving away the digital image, Bunny Hug, that I used on my project today to one random commenter.



Here's what you need to do to win-

1) Stop by the Amber Ink store and pick out your favorite product. It can be any Amber Ink product - digi stamps, clear stamps, or ipaper.

2) Enter your name in the linky tool below. After your name, include the name of your favorite Amber Ink product. (i.e.: Cheryl - Bunny Hug) If you do not have your own blog address, you can use mine but be sure to leave a comment with your email so I can get a hold of you if you win.

3) Please leave me a comment. You don't have to in order to qualify for the candy drawing but I love getting them. :)

4) Entries will end Monday, March 7th, at 5 pm CST. I will announce the random winner on my Amber Ink Torch Bearer post on Tuesday, March 6th.




Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week end!
