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,

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!!
