Cafe Mocha Morning

Happy Friday! This has been one long busy week.  I sure am in need of my coffee this morning as this week ends and as I listen to the birds waking up and the streets are getting busy with traffic. So I thought I would put up the great card that Currie made. She did a little masking which made such a big impact. Grap a cup of coffee and sit down, relax and take a look at Currie's card.
This is the card opened up. She used the Crop-a-dile for holes and eyelets for the twill.
Currie used Copic markers and Large Helen (J04001) from Crackerbox Palace stamps.
The background stamp from Crackerbox Palace stamps is coffee stain D03808 and Valium Latte F03813
Did you notice the smile after her coffee? It gives Helen a whole new look. This is the one where she used the mask over her frown and drew in a smile on Helen as well as the smile on the coffee cup. 
The coffee stain was used again and After coffee C03825 from Crackerbox Palace stamps.

Currie's Cookie Sheet "Just A Note" Magnet Board

This makes such a cute magnet for anyones kitchen.  You could custom this into any theme that you have in your kitchen.  This is a smaller cookie sheet but has a lot of room for many notes. Wouldn't this by a cute idea for each child in the family to decorate their own for their work?
Currie spray painted the cookie sheet. Cover with paper, stamp right on to the patterned paper and color with markers.  She also stamped on the note paper on the top to look like notebook spiral and the word 'hello'.  Drill holes on the top to hang it. She used: K&Company patterned paper and brads, Copic markers, Papertrey Ink and note pad paper.

You Are My Sunshine by Currie

Currie's Wall Hanging
I used a tree template.  Get ready to spend some time on the tree.  It's not hard, just a time eater.  First cut out the tree trunk from the template, then tape it to the cardstock you wish to use for the tree.  Cut it out of the cardstock.  Do the same thing with the leaves.l  I put a shadow on the tree trunk by glueing it to a darker cardstock and cutting it out again.  Texture the leaves, these are done with Cuttlebug.  Stamp birds, bird houses, color and cut out.  Arrange as you like.  I used a piece of cardboard on the back to make it stronger.  Finally, use a Crop-a-dile for holes to hang. 
I used: Copic markers, K&Company patterned paper, Cuttlebug, Cordinations paper, Gelly Roll Pens.

Directions for Currie's Pocket Card

Directions to fold the pocket card:
Cut a sheet of double sided card stock to 11 X 11

Step 1:
Fold in half-5 1/2 and crease.

Step 2:
Open and fold in hald the other way. Now you will have the cs folded in quarters.

Step 3:
Cut on one of the creases. To cut a straight line, I put my paper in the corner of my Scor-Pal and used my Tim Holtz ruler because the ruler fits in the Scor-Pal. I cut the line up to 5 1/2.

Step 4:
Fold the upper left corner (the corner above the cut). I folded it at 3 1/2 on the Scor-Pal using (what I call my corner tool) to get the fold straight. You can make this fold as big or small as you wish. This is the plain color tab on the card.

Step 5:
Flip the cs over and fold the bottom right corner to the center where the two creases meet.

Step 6:
Turn the cs back over so the smaller fold is in the upper left corner.
Fold the left side over to the right.

Step 7:
Fold the bottom of the card over the top of the card.

Step 8:
Fold the left flap under the card.

Step 9:
You can either glue the back flap to the card and only use the front for tags and/or cards or you can also use the inside of the card for more messages.

Currie's Happy Anniversary Folded card

Currie made a beautiful Happy Anniversary Card. She added flower seeds, the packet was made from "Wild Card" Cricut cartridge then stamped with Crackerbox Palace stamps. The flower image is also a Crackerbox Palace stamp and Currie colored it with Copic markers and Prism colored pencils then used a edge distressor around the image. I like the flower seed, planted, growing, blooming!

Spring is Popping

Chick Alizadeh used the the word Spring from Crackebox Palace rubbe stamps. The large egg is a Spellbinder as well as the what the saying is on.  The small chicks and egg are from the new borders from Spellbinder. She drew the eyes on the egg and put white applique on the egg but did not heat it. She then drew around the eyes and add the cracks with the Copic .05 pen. She also added eyes on the chicks and colored them with Copic markers.  The grass is a Martha Stewart punch as well as the white bunnies. To add texture, she put both of the grass green paper through the Cuttlebug.

Easter Napkin

Chick made this card from a napkin that a friend gave to her.  She seperated the two layers of the napkin.  Layed the printed napkin on a sheet of meat wrappping and ironed it. She cut out the image and paper shaped the flowers (which is hard to see in this flat photo). Colored over the flowers with Smooch so they are shimmery. She also ironed the white piece of napkin to meat wrap and ran it through the Cuttlebug and inked the embossed image. The saying was stamped and cut out with Spellbinders. She took a Copic glitter marker and outlined around the saying before she took the Spellbinder die off.
I just wish this picture looked at good as the card!

Currie's Bunny Basket

Happy Easter to all!

Currie made this basket that you can use for Easter or any other occasion.  It will cost less than a bag you buy at the store and you can coordinate it with the card and occasion.
She used Memories ink. This is a nice and quick way to give any kind of gift. I just used the template for a shower gift.
