Another Card

Hey. I thought I would post again since I wanted to enter the Paper Playtime Anything Goes contest. About a week or two ago, I made a birthday card for my grandma.

Here it is:

This is the front of the card. I used Kate's ABCs for the flower pot. I put the same wide ribbon used on Kiely's page around the bottom of the card. I put some cream colored paper behind the ribbon and pot to make it look like the pot is sitting on a windowsill and then a square of blue is behind that to look like the sky behind it. I layered that on a striped paper and then onto the card back that is the same blue color. I also tied a bow of ribbon around the base of the pot. I glossy accented the flowers too.

Here is the inside of the card. I used George and Basics Shapes  for the sentiment. I used a very pale blue  for the font and then the same striped paper for the shadow. I also added an envelope to the inside since My mom was sending this with a gift card.

We have already sent the card to my grandma and she loved it. She's showing it off to everyone. I'm going to get the Thanksgiving one ready to ship too. I wish it was going to get there by Thanksgiving but that's not gonna happen since it's tomorrow. Anyways, I hope you like this card. TTFN. Ta ta for now.

Showing PBS Some Love!

Hey, everyone. WOW! I can't believe how fast this semester has gone. Only 3 more weeks of class. I did advisement already. Lots of new classes coming in Spring. Right now, I'm on Thanksgiving break until next Monday. I'm doing really well in all my classes. Nothing less than a B.

As for today, I make some charms from clay and did some scrapping. There is a polymer clay contest on YouTube that I really wanted to enter so I made some charms for it. I've working on the Teletubbies for a while. I made Tinky Winky and La La last week and today I made Dipsy and Po. They turned out alright. I wanted to make sure that Po was slightly smaller than the rest. He was my favorite Teletubby when I was little.

Since Teletubbies was a show on PBS, I tried to think of another PBS show that I could use since the contest needs at least 5 charms. I was originally going to make Clifford the Big Red Dog but I was thinking of a show that I watched when I was younger and came up with The Big Comfy Couch. I was always watching it when I was in the hospital. I think I even had a Molly doll. So I made a chibi Loonetta holding a chibi Molly doll. I think it is by far the cutest charm I have made so far.

Lastly, I have been wanting to make a baby book for Kiely for a while but I don't print pictures very often so I didn't have any pics to put in it. Recently, I was in a swap that required pictures so I printed some pics of Kiely while I was printing pics for the swap. Now, I can finally make a baby book for Kiely. Today, I started making the book. I already have a book with chipboard pages that I won last Scrapbook day from and I'm using that for her book. I jest made the title page today.

I used two Cricut cartridges for this page. Kiely's name is cut using Kate's ABCs. I just discovered the Cricut Craft Room so I used that to weld the letters together. The dog is cut using my newest cartridge, Create a Critter. I tried to make the dog look like Kiely right down to the pink collar with white spots. I also put her in a little pink shirt. I think the pink damask paper is by Pink Paisley I put a wide strip of white ribbon across the middle and added a flower that I inked with pink ink. You can't see it in the picture, but I put glossy accents on Kiely's nose and eyes. I'll probably work on some more pages this week since I have no school. If I do, I'll post pics for you. That's it for today. TTFN. Ta ta for now.

Thanksgiving's Coming!

Hey. I haven't written in a while. Been busy with school and making things for swaps. Today, I though I share a card that I made. It's a Thanksgiving card I made for my grandparents.
This is the outside of the card. The card base is brown cardstock. I layered foil paper and then another square of the brown cardstock. I cut a tree on orange cardstock. The tree is from my Heritage cartridge. I inked it with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo ink. I also cut a bunch of small leaves out of green, yellow, and orange and scattered them along the bottom and placed a few in the tree. I inked the leaves a little bit too.

Here's the inside of the card. I layered the same foil and brown paper and then stamped the sentiment on the same orange that the tree was cut from.Hope you like it. I'll try to post some more stuff soon. I might make some things with clay tomorrow. TTFN Ta ta for now.
