SIP113back2school

Welcome to the "Back to School" card challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper.

I don't have a lot of school related things, cuz - no kids.  Well, my kids have paws, and don't go to school....  :)


But, I did find a few things in my stash that I think worked..... I do have a sister that is a teacher, so there are a few items related to school lying around..

The stamps are from "Oogloo" and "Cooke Scraps".  Weird names for stamp makers, but that is what the blocks say.  :)  I colored the images with my copics, and attached them to some paper I thought was appropriate.  It is hard to come up with ideas when you don't really have a lot to choose from, but I think I did ok.


Hope you can ind time to share your creations with me!!  Maybe your ideas can inspire me to make some cards for my sister throughout the year!!

Make it a great week!!
Hug your pets,
Lisa

SIP112travel

Hello there fellow crafty folks!!!
Thanks for stopping by.

This week's Stamp, Ink, Paper theme is "travel".
Thanks, Justin.  Now I want to go on vacation!!


I used some paper from American Craft for the background and the smaller circles.  The image is from Unity Stamp Co, and is called "Let's Be Adventurers".  The little wooden airplane is what started the whole card idea (funny where my 'jumpin off' points come from sometimes!!).  I am not sure where the plane came from, I believe I got the baggie of shapes from Hobby Lobby.  It also contains bikes, cars, and sailboats.

So, take some time to make a travel themed card, and go "on vacation" with me...... this may be as close to a vacation as I get. lol

No automatic alt text available.




Make it a great day!!
Hug your pets.

OSATbloghop-kids



OMGeeeeeee......  Who remembered to finish her blog post like at the last possible minute??  THIS GIRL!!  lol  Hope I make sense, cuz I am tired!!

So, I don't have much "back to school" stuff geared towards kids, so I went with a birthday theme for a little guy I know who has a birthday coming up, and he happens to like trucks, so.....


I had the gift, and gift bag, with all the dots, which I thought was fun, so I wanted dots on the card, and, as I mentioned he likes trucks. 



The images are from "Little Trucks" which is an oldie, but goodie Stampin Up set.  The sentiment is from the Mini Treat bag die set.

I hope he likes it, and the trucks inside.  I will also give his mom the rest of the box of crayons, cuz the leftovers do me no good.  :)

Next up on the hop is Rick Adkins.  I am sure he will have you something fun to check out as you hop along!!

Make it a great day,
Hug your pets!!

SIP111beach

This week at Stamp, Ink, Paper, we are heading to the beach!!!  I have never been a beach goer, I am more likely to be found camping, or on a a hiking trail, but I could certainly use a vacation, so off to the beach I went.....


Since I don't frequent the beach, I really don't have any "beachy" card making supplies.  But, luckily. I happened upon some fun paper in my stash that did the job!!  My friend Cathy bought a paper pack that was beach themed, and she had asked if I wanted a few sheets from it......so, I knew they were somewhere in my crafty corner, and it only took me two paper piles to find them. YAY ME!!  :)


So, the top piece, with the image and sentiment, as well as the chevron layer below it, are from Cathy's paper. The card base is Sahara Sand.  I looped some linen thread around the bottom of the top layer.  And done.  Such a simple, quick process, but I just don't feel it needs anything more.

It is good to "get my feet wet" with card making, as I haven't been doing much these last two weeks.  My father passed away two weeks ago, and life has been a bit crazy for me ever since.  Hoping to get back on schedule soon.  It's good to be back to blogging and joining in the weekly SIP Challenge.
Hope you can find some time to join us as well.......maybe ya'all will inspire me to go to the beach!


Make it a great week everyone.
Hug your pets!!

SIP108floral

Thanks for stopping by to check out this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge!!  This week it all about flowers.....


I am loving this new "ruffles" embossing folder!!  It is so pretty and fun. I embossed some Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, the flowers are from "Grateful Bunch". The leaves were punched out with the retired bird punch.  Not sure where the shiny ribbon came from (I just happened to find it in the ribbon drawer).  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.


I also made this guy......


I used some of the new daisy dsp, which is another new favorite of mine!!

Hope you can find some time to join this week's challenge....who doesn't like flowers??  :)


Thanks again for stopping by!!!
Make it a great day...
....and hug your pets!!

SIP107tictactoe

Hello!!!! 
And thank you for stopping by to check out this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge.  We have a great tic tac toe board for inspiration this week.

This is what I came up with.....


I have to give a huge "shout out" to Andrea Tracy-Tucker for making my new watermark!! I just love it....love the little tricycle!!!!

The image is from the Unity set "Don't be like the rest of them....."
I heat embossed it with the copper powder from Stampin Up on to Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.  I sponged the edges with BBS ink, and put some matching ribbon along one edge.  The roses are a retired Stampin Up item.


The "hello" is a Stampin Up thinlit die.  The patterned paper is from my massive paper stash and I have no idea of it came from.  :)

Here is the challenge badge.....

SIP106JulyChristmas

Merry Christmas!!!!!
Thank you for stopping by to check out this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge. This week's challenge is "Christmas in July".  It was weird to try to think of Christmas things while it is sunny and nearly 80 degrees outside......but, I got through it!!  :)


I used an old Hero Arts set for the images and sentiment.  The embossing folder is a retired Stampin Up item.  I colored the images with copics.


And a little closer look.....


Aren't they cute??


Hope you can find some time to join this week's challenge!!  Who doesn't love Christmas??

Have a great week.
Hug your pets!!!!!!!!!!!
