Oopsie....looks like someone got carried away while painting with their friend...Love that painted tail...truly friends to the end!


When I saw this stamp, I immediately envisioned it paired with paint splats of some kind.  It was fun to find this big splat frame that I could frame my adorable Painting Pals stamp.  I resized it and cut several frames-gluing them together for strength and then cut two 'splats' without the center cut out to fashion the card base.

I did hand cut around the paint brush handles to bring them outside of the frame.  For the finishing touch I added a sweet little sentiment from Penny Black Snippets sentiment set.

Graduation cards for Camy



My sweet grand niece Camy is graduating tonight-the Class of 2016!  
Since I am the resident family card maker...I made several cards  so her Grandpa, and Great Granny and Gramps could each send one as well.




I made my own shaker card by designing two rectangles that I matted together and adding the Grads Throwing Caps (Sarah Bailey) silhouette cut file inside. Super fun...


I used this four step card designed by Lori Whitlock and Graduate Girl by Snapdragon Snippets.  The sentiment and numbers were generated in Silhouette. On the front of this card I added her name in the same pretty gold paper I used on the inside.


 For this card is used a file designed by Lori Whitlock-A2 box card:Graduation. I also added her initials on several frames as well  and the happy graduate file Graduation by Studio Ilustrado.




 Well there you go! My Graduation cards for 2016!

I am sharing these on Silhouette Challenges blog.

Thanks for stopping in today!

Penny Black Blog Hop-Happy 8th Birthday

We have an exciting blog hop planned for you for the Month of June!  Besides our normal wonderful  1-2-3 Stitch Sponsor, each team mate will have blog candy on their own blogs! All you have to do is hop to each blog and leave a comment!



Today I am showing off a cute cling stamp named So Kind.    I stamped the image on express cardstock and colored with copics.  I added Lawn Fawn grass and a Sizzix die cut sun. Off to the side I added a few Impression Obsession tulips. The tree was cut with my Silhouette. The die cuts were added on to the card with foam stickies for added dimension. I stamped the happy birthday sentiment on with my Misti.  The sentiment is from the Penny Black Snippets clear set.

If you are hopping and have stopped at my blog, your next stop is my wonderful teamie, SYLVIE.

Toad-ily Open-HMFMC 220 -Toofies!





Mid-Way Reminder #220


The Challenge THEME is
   "Something Old...Nothing New"
  I challenge you to raid your coveted stash of crafty goodies and use  
ONLY OLD STUFF FROM YOUR STASH
 ...nothing new (except maybe adhesive)
In fact... I'd like you to use supplies you already have that are at LEAST 1 year old. The older the better. This includes paper, dies, embellishments, stamps, even adhesives. If you use supplies that are 10+ years old...you get bonus points, and perhaps...a prize for the oldest supply used!



Of course, you also have the "ANYTHING GOES" option too, so join the fun!  As long as you use a House-Mouse Designs(R) House-Mouse Friends /Happy Hoppers, or, Gruffies image stamped/decoupage or CD rom.
http://www.house-mouse.com/images/banner120_02.jpg






Hmmm...Something Old/Nothing New!  Let me see...

I decided to look through my older stamps and by golly-I found this wood mount stamp I had NEVER used-and I have had it forever! Not sure how that happened! Toad-ily Open (old Stampabilities stamp).

I stamped this stamp onto the white toofie and added it to the tooth gift box.  Wouldn't this be cute to use for a  dentist gift box or for a first trip to the dentist bribe prize?    I could not believe I even had a brand new toofie brush the right color to add to the picture.  I found the perfect sentiment from the Pure Innocence Spa Day set from MFT-another oldie but goodie.

Father's Day Fisherman-Silhouette Challenges



Silhouette Challenges




Challenge #37 "Anything Goes"
Starts: May 1
Ends: May 31








Doesn't this character tickle you? I just grinned when I first saw this cut file created by Snapdragon Snippets and purchased through the Silhouette Store.  My Sweetie's Father is quite a Fisherman-so this card was just perfect for his Father's Day Card. He's one of those guys that watches the mailbox for his special card! I just love that!

I used some SU! craft for the base of this card and then The Paper Loft Hooked on Fishing 6x6 patterned paper.  The fun part of this card was searching through all my scrap drawers for just the right color of browns and greens to use.  It has a gazillion pieces, but was so fun to put together!







 I couldn't stop at Mr.Fisherman, I had to make his  'wife' too. Meet Gardener Gal. I made her for Fisherman's wife's birthday! These cards look so fun sitting side by side. They are rather large...A7 size. about 5.5 x 7.25, so they take a special envelope.

I used a yellow base and different pieces from my scrap drawers for Gardener Gal. A fun part of these files was deciding which pieces to add pop dots too..such fun dimension!

There are a whole series of designs like this, so you will probably see more down the road!

I am entering these in the following challenges:

Quirky Craft Challenge Blog:April Showers Bring Quirky Flowers 5/28
2 Creative Chicks-ATGoes-5/31
Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge-5/31
World Wide Design Team Challenge-ATGoes 6/14

Penny Black Masculine Challenge















Mid Way Reminder

Masculine





I adore this Charlie Chaplin cling stamp!  He looks so happy dancing around with his pointy shoes!  


I found some Chaplin quotes online and printed this on to my card base. I colored Charlie with lots of browns and then cut him out with my ScanNCut2 machine. I added him to the card with pop dots and that was it!!!
