GSF – The Neutrals

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy!

It’s the first Friday of the month, so that means the amazing Demos of the Global Stamping Friends are having another hop! This month we are showcasing The Neutrals.

What are the Neutrals you ask? The Neutrals are, in order of appearance, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, and Soft Suede.

neutrals assorted ink pads

These are some very useful colors and most can be used in combination with any of the other color families that Stampin’ Up! has to offer! 

The stamp set I used is Geared Up Garage. Yes! I really do love this stamp set and framelits…A LOT! If you have any doubts, or need other ideas on how to use it, you can check out the other posts here, here, here, and here! 😉 It’s just a perfect set for the guys in my life! 

Here is my newest card creation:

Then on the inside, it looks like this. The top flap of the card was trimmed off a bit so that the smudge and navy line were part of the inside, too.

  • Cardz 4 Guys – #216 Let’s Get Messy
  • The design for this card actually came from a new Challenge site I found…Freshly Made Sketches.

    However, since I still have not learned to pay closer attention to closing dates of sketches, I missed out on this one because it closed before this blog post went live. Bummer! I will learn, truly, I will! 

  • The Male Room – #107 DIY (I had also designed this card with this challenge in mind, but it also closed before this blog hop went live, so I missed out. Bummer!

ICS – It’s a Spring Thing!!

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy!

It’s the 1st Wednesday of the month so it’s time for the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop! I love hopping with these lovely ladies!

This blog hop is all about Spring! It’s here according to the calendar…just not according to our actual weather, although the snow is melting.

Since I have 3 Mother-in-Laws (Mom, Step-mom, Father-in-Law’s partner) and 1 mother of my own, I have Mother’s Day on the brain already. So, here is a card I made for one of the Mother-in-Laws…won’t say which one in case they see this. 😉

It started off as a sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and a Color Throwdown combination 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and turned into this:

I like how it turned out! Soft and pretty, just like the lovely lady who will get this card! I even used some Wink of Stella on the embossed flowers. You can kind of see the sparkle in this photo. Subtle, but effective.

1554010074012.jpg

Materials used on this card are:

 

Now you can hop along to Tricia Butts blog and see what she created for her Spring Thing! Enjoy the hopping!

Sketch + Colors = Mom?

Howdy!

Was on a good creative roll this weekend and wanted to get the cards blogged before the challenges run out…seems to happen a bit to me lately!

So, here is the color combo from Fab Friday and the sketch from Sketch Saturday. They were some great inspiration for this card!

 

 

And here is my creation using these 2 wonderful inspirations!
1553993309064.jpg
I used Wink of Stella on the wreath and the bow to give it a little more pizzazz…who doesn’t love a little sparkle, right? Here is a closer look…
Over all, I love the bright springy colors on this card! I am sure my Mother-in-Law will too!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Poppin’ Birthday

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy!

Well, it’s Spring Break for us here in Whitefish, Montana and I am loving not having to go to school! Haven’t gotten to sleep in, yet the days are more relaxing and it makes me so very ready for summer vacation! Bring it on! Ready to craft my heart out!

Today is our monthly blog hop for Paper Pumpkin Possibilities! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this 1 stop box of fun creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this March Paper Pumpkin kit: Poppin’ Birthday.

Here are the cards that the instructions were for:

I normally make each of the instructed cards and then make alternates. Today I just dove right in, so this is a photo from Paper Pumpkin of what the cards look like. I will make one of each…later. So many ideas running through my head and all over the internet!

The card I made for today actually came to me in a dream last night! Yes, crazy, right?!? I was thinking about what I would make today and I fell asleep and when I woke up I remembered making a card in my dream…so I made it for real!

Here is it!

1553642561951.jpg

 

It’s a tad dark because I had to lay it back a little so that the sequins wouldn’t all fall to the bottom. Yep, it’s a shaker card! Learned a few things…first, make sure you put the plastic sheet on the back of your cake BEFORE you put down the double sided foam tape! 🙂 Yeah, I didn’t…ugh! That wasn’t fun to pull back up. 

My goal is to always make Paper Pumpkin Alternates using as much from the kit as I can. I don’t want you to need to buy extra product if you are not in a financial position for it. Been there, done that. The only materials or items I used that were not in the kit this month were:

Oh, before I sign off and have you hop on over to Anastasia’s project, here is the inside of the card…just as dressy and fun! Picture a tad dark…something is up with my phone or my lighting today. I’ll figure it out before the next post!

Happy Tails are Meant to Be!

Howdy!

How are you all today?! I am on my first day of Spring Break and happy for it! What better way to start it than telling you about this cute card I came up with to enter into the Sketch Saturday Challenge? I have fun with sketches and this one turned out cute!

Here is the sketch:

I figured I would change it up a bit and instead of going with circles, I went with a heart and puppy dog! Here is mine:

1553208383820.jpg

And, since I am into different ways of folding cards lately…I went with a new fun one that I learned…it’s a double door kind of fold. First card I made I had the heart straight up, half on one side, half on the other. Then at my card class this week, Crystal said she was going wonky and I really liked that idea…so I went with a wonky heart too! I like this one better!

Materials used for this card are:

Here are 2 pictures of how it looks when you open it:

I left the inside blank so that I can write whatever to the person who gets the card. I may choose to put Very Vanilla cardstock inside to make writing easier because the inside is textured as well. Oh…when you use the paw and bone to stamp all over the front…stamp before you emboss…it’s easier! Just saying because I forgot to do it that way. 😉

Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Blessings, June

Last “Geared Up for 50” card

Howdy!

Finally, here is the last 50th birthday card I made from the Geared Up Garage Bundle and the Classic Garage DSP! Such a fun set! I really love this set and plan on making more cards and scrapbook pages with this set! Ok, not for awhile. I need to play with some of the other stuff I have gotten from the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure!! Speaking of which, can you believe we are in our last month of Sale-A-Bration?! Oh, no! If you haven’t gotten all the things you want, you better get on it! Click here to place your order and get FREE stuff while you can. It all ends March 31st! Occasion catalog goes until June 3rd, so you have a bit of time for that…although it makes sense to order what you want from the Occasions Catalog and get the FREE items from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. And, have you seen all the Sale-A-Bration Coordination items? So fun! You can see one of them here. Alas, they are all selling quickly and some are sold out. So, again, DON’T WAIT!! SHOP NOW! And please remember to use the March Hostess Code (4X6BB23E) if you are under $150.

On to the card!

1551153300857.jpg

And here is what it looks like opened…

Pretty cool, don’t you think? I was pleased with all three. The only thing I think I would do different would be to distress the balloons to give them depth. If you missed the Pop Up Box for my Hubster, you can see that here. And the spin fold card you can see here.

The colors I used were all the same: Crushed Curry, Real Red, and Basic Gray. For this car, I changed it up a bit and used the framelit to cut out one of the sports cars from the DSP. For my hubby I had embossed it in white and then used the framelit. This one has more of a chalkboard feel to it. The Happy was cut from the Happy Birthday thinlit. The Birthday was too big for the card. I am sure I will use it elsewhere. I don’t like to waste anything, so I keep all that kind of stuff. Just need to get it more organized so I can find it when I am looking for it! 

That is all I have for you today. Tomorrow I get to go scrapbook with some ladies whose group I just got invited to! I am beyond excited and happy to find a crafty group in my new town! It’s taken me 2 years, but I am rolling now meeting crafty folks and making new crafty friends! WooHoo! I’ll take pictures of my pages and share them here next week! Enjoy your weekend! I know I will!
Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!
