Greener Grass

Hi, I hope you are having a great Sunday. Here is WI, fall has started, the leaves are changing colors and falling and it is getting cooler. So you are probably wondering why I am posting golf cards. Well, we are on our way to Mesa, AZ in a couple of days to do a show with Rubber Stamp Events. Barb posted this card on her fb page. You can see her fb page here.
If you want to find out about the convention it is here.
This is a half easel card. I just folded it like a normal card then folded the top in half. I put pop dots under the saying so it sticks up and catches the folded half. It lays flat to mail. Hope you are having good weather where ever you are.

Hello Kitty

This stamp reminds me of our cat. Our daughter lives with us until she closes on her house. Rachael has 3 dogs, with our 2 we have 5 that need to go out a number of times a day. It is impossible to keep our boy inside. Plus during the nice weather she had the windows open downstairs so he could come and go as he pleased. Now, it's 40 degrees here in WI so the windows are now all shut and he sits by the patio door and windows wanting to get out, I think he think summer is out there somewhere.
I used Copic markers to color the image.

We have some new stamps that are not on our web site but you see them at the convention. We have new golf, football, baseball and soccer stamps. If you are interested, we can email you the images but stay tune, I have some more cards from these new stamps to show you later.

Button, Button, Who's Got The Button from Karen Schroeder

Vicky here to share a birthday bucket that Karen Schroeder did for a Stickles Hop. I love using Stickles and have for years, it is just so easy to add glitter using Stickles.  If you want to join the Hop go to Karen's blog here and you may win.
This is what Karen writes:

Buttons are fabulous embellishments to all types of craft projects, and what better than to spruce them up with some Stickles?!
Hi All!  Come visit my blog!  I made a Happy Birthday Treat Bucket for the All That Stickles Button Bonanza Blog Hop!
To be safe, only place wrapped food items in mini paint buckets.  Okay, now to the fun stuff...the buttons!  I rubbed the Stickles into the buttons while the shank was still attached...easier to set down to dry.  In the outer circle I used Burgundy, True Blue, Glam Pink, Midnight Blue, Purple, Firefly, and Orange Peel.  For the other buttons, including the one on the mini card, I used Ice Stickles-Crystal Ice!  The lid with covered by some tie-dyed sticky back fabric.   Once the buttons were dry, I cut the shanks off and attached them with Glue Dots.
I just love the Happy Feet (large) and Feet Flower stamps from Crackerbox Palace!  They remind me of life in college.   The Happy Birthday 1 stamp is also from them.  If I could have found it, I would have used their Back on Your Feet stamp and made this a Get Well bucket!   The Happy Feet and Back on Your Feet stamps are perfect for Get Well cards!  Now I just have to find it...or buy one and of course, then find it!
Adding the ribbons took the longest time to do, but it is so worth it.  When I tie ribbons I do not cut pieces and then tie them.  What I do is tie the ribbon while having one side attached to the roll.  It saves ribbon and it is much easier to tie...at least it is for me.  I also tied the ribbons one at a time (rather than a few together) in double knots.  
I hope you enjoyed my project!

I stamped the Poster on Wood twice and fussy cut the poster from the cream cardstock.  Then I distressed it with Vintage Photo Distress ink.  I also fussy cut and distressed the Barbed Wire Frame.  Three mini star brads were added to hold up the poster.  The frame was distressed with a distressing tool.

Become Who You Really Are

Hi Vicky here today. I have a card that I made for a friend who went through by-pass surgery. She loved it and wanted to share it with everyone so she gave it back for me to use it. I used Spellbinder to cut out the pic and saying then sponged color to on it. The rose is also a Spellbinder that I inked while the die was still on and who doesn't like to get flowers.
 This is close up of the lock and key. I thought of unlocking the inner you and let her out.
I have a background paper with numbers on it because numbers are important.
I also put on a measuring tape on the card.
Hope you enjoyed the card.

Spirit of Christmas Card from Crackerbox Palace


Karen H. here today and I am sharing a holiday card I made with stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I cut the front of the white card base in half and stamped the beautiful Christmas sentiment and a couple pretty snowflakes on the right side. I embossed a piece of Shimmer Sheetz (by Elizabeth Crafts) with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sanded it to bring out the embossed snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by the Crackerbox Palace blog. Please visit the website to see these and many other awesome Crackerbox Palace stamps.

My Favorite Crackerbox Palace Sentiment Stamp


Karen H. here today and I am sharing a card I made with my favorite sentiment stamp from Crackerbox Palace. I just love what this stamp says- it is just perfect for a card maker like me (and you!) I stamped it on a white piece in my favorite aqua blue ink and sponged the edges with the same ink. I am loving the ombre look with different shades of a color, and I cut out triangles in different shades of aqua blue to fit in the hexagon space created with a Nestabilities die. I added a butterfly (punch by Martha Stewart) and a couple gems to complete the card.

Buzzing Around

Vicky here today to share a get well card. I stamped the bee and cut it out. The bee hive stamp is a solid stamp. I inked it first with yellow then took a Dew Drop Memory ink pad and flicked the edge of the ink pad over the yellow ink.
I stamped the saying and cut it out with Spellbinder.
You can see the stamps on wood mount or cling mount here.

Coffee With a Friend

Vicky here today. This is a CAS card. I stamped the coffee pot and the cups twice then colored them with Copic markers and cut them out. The saying was cut with a Spellbinder and before taking off the die, I used a Spica Glitter marker to outline around the die.
Hope you enjoyed the card.
