Quickie card – I heart you

I have some new CraftsUPrint cutfiles, a tonne of new stamps and dies and … oh dear.. it’s been a busy month… for shopping haha.  I have a huge basket of goodies to  play with … and not enough time to play with them all.. but I am sure gonna try..and my son seems to have been bit with the crafty bug bad this month..so I shall be in good company.

So going to start off our mega marathon of craftiness with a quickie card featuring a super quick and cute cut file and a Satuarate Canary stamp I picked up in my first.. yes I said first batch of stamps I grabbed from LDRS Creative this past week (see previous post).  I loved the ones I got so much…I went back for more.   At $1 a pop on clearance, there is no way I wasn’t taking good advantage of this sale …. the stamps are fabulous. I found some long searched for scenic stamps which I can’t wait to play with.  This was my first time shopping with LDRS and I have to say I am impressed.

Ok so here she is.. this is Alice, supplies list is super simple and listed below.


Card base is 110lb Georgia Pacific card and was cut on the Cricut Explore using a CraftsUPrint cut file by Apetroae Stefan  called OVER THE EDGE HEART BORDER CARD

Insert is Black Recollections Value pack 65lb card, contrasts great through the cut outs
Black layer is also Black 65lb Recollections card
Image was stamped on Canson Mix Media using black Stazon Ink and colored with Chameleon Pens

… both layers were given a shabby cut, I have an old cutter that  does this to the paper/card if you only cut one layer and I love it, because I suck at paper tearing/ripping  but like the shabby edge look for some projects…so this is my compromise.

I used Zig Photo Tape runner adhesive to attach my layers.

Humorous 3 Column Stepper card

Oh what fun I had with this one…. another one of the fun cut files I picked up with my CraftsUPrint winnings  🙂

This card design has so many possibilities; I kept this one pretty “PC”  but the potential for sarcastic humor …. limited only by your own imagination.  The base card itself is so versatile for any occasions… cute, sweet, sassy and downright naughty…. and suitable for any occasion.  I can see me using this design in future projects.

The images, as I am sure most of you are already aware of ….Bugaboo Stamps.  How could I not include good ol’ Stella in a card like this.  These were colored with Zig Kurecolor and Chameleon markers and a touch of Marvy detailer & Wink of Stella.  I then scanned and reprinted them with the border at the size I needed for the columns. I left the space below the images blank specifically for  adding in other  less PC humor,  but of course that is entirely optional.

The CraftsUPrint cut file  by Rae Carr was cut on the Cricut Explore, on an 11×17 sheet of Neenah 110lb card stock to create an oversized card.

The title was designed in PSP and printed  then layered on.

The speedometer features a moving needle for that personal touch..with a cute inlaid pearl heart brad .. to soften the blow LOL.

Faery Ink WIP project for a budding hairdresser

I’ve been playing around a lot lately (.. as you may have noticed lol), with various new pens, pencils and paints etc and lots of different artists.  This is just a WIP, there is absolutely no. …no ..NO ..way I could managed a  new project for every spotlight, but I can share my WIP’s, colorings and  showcase the images I have, or want to have in my collection.

Make sure you swing by the  main intro post  and  this of course is Faery Ink…. my Day 1 spotlight guest 🙂

This is one I started playing with last week “Bella Spring Magic“,  obviously things have  been a bit crazy hectic round here..<<INSERT STAGE LAUGH and major understatement HERE.  but I wanted to try out my new Zig Kurelcolor and Chameleon pens sets.  I just recently got the Chameleon Skintone set from their new extended palette and the Kurecolor Hair and muted tones pack… loving  both of these pen sets.

Throw in a little Tim Holtz Ranger Distress, Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust and a wizz over with some white & clear Wink of Stella… and we have a twinkle twinkle fit for a little girl I know in Canada who just became a big sister last month

…. and just happens to be a blonde.  I shall post the finished card later when it is done… 🙂

Funny Story:  Aforementioned young lady also has, or should I say HAD lovely long hair too…. which trust me her mom waited FOREVER for it to grow. The morning of her maternity photo shoot a few months back…. her daughter went in the bathroom and hacked chunks of it out with scissors.

Her reasoning, she “wanted to look pretty for the photoshoot” LOL

Fast fwd a few hours later; so they get home and my friend goes to do something in the kitchen…. next things she knows, her daughter has once again decided to go at her hair. Now this is a kid who has had access to scissors for play and craft for well over a year with no incidents at all…. well not with scissors anyway…. lol…. we shall leave it at that haha.

Let’s just say I consider myself highly fortunate, my son and her daughter were born at the same time…. we were on a pregnant chicks board and that is how we met… .and I have not had to deal with half the things her daughter has got up to.  She’s a wee monkey at times lol.

Anywho, back to the hair, we have come to the conclusion that after having her first “real” haircut a few weeks earlier… she was probably role playing at being a hair dresser.

Its shall grow back…. I’m just waiting to find out what her next escapade will be  LOL.

Thank you Faery Ink for this fabulous image, I think I have the perfect CraftsUprint card base cut file for this one… 🙂
