Mojo, where did you go?


Okay, so I know I've been a slacker! I have a card swap coming up next week and stupid me, I decide on coloring not one, but FIVE stamped images per card! That's a total of 45 stamped images (one to keep!)!!! What a bonehead. So, that's what I've been doing. I have carpel tunnel from cutting all the stinkin' images, too! I still don't really know what I'm going to do with it yet. I have an idea, but I'm not sure it'll come to fruition. I have to play around with it this weekend. So, wish me luck and lots of creativity! I'm going to need it!

PPD Challenge #1

Here's my take on the PaperDolls challenge! It's a "shaky-shaky" card, where the little butterflies and glass beads move around. For some reason, the yellow and pink butterflies are sticking together. Oh well, I had fun making it...and it's even more fun shaky-shaking it! LOL.

Card Deets:
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams (PTI)
Ink: Fresh Snow (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, New Leaf, Raz Fizz (PTI), Bumblebee (Creations Unlimited), dunno the black polka dot one (Lasting Impressions)
Other: paper flowers, transparency, silver glass beads, black rhinestones, rickrack die and butterfly die (PTI)

I am soo loving the Cheeky Cheery Collection from The Greeting Farm! I was having issues with the Glamour one, but I went in to my art teacher at school and asked for help. ;) Here's my first card using the Shooter one! I had so much fun with this one. I cased someone who used black rhinestones as bullets! SOOO cool.

I don't know about y'all but sometimes, when it comes to paper, I have such a hard time using my 'stash'! I finally sucked it up and took out PTI's enchanted evening. Love it!

Card Deets:

Stamps: Cheeky Shooter (TGF)
Ink: memento tuxedo black
Paper: Kraft, Pure Poppy and Enchanted Evening (PTI), ALL ABOUT BOYS stack (DCWV)
Other: Nesties Labels 1, black rhinestones, misc. ribbon, copics, spica

Burfday Card...

About a month ago, we had a card swap at work. Some of our friends didn't want to play because they claimed that they "didn't know what to do." We all know how creative they can be. Here's the card they made for my birthday! HILARIOUS! And, they did follow the requirement of having an embellie!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I got a whole bunch of The Greeting Farm stamps for my birthday. I kinda get completely engrossed in coloring these cuties! I figured I'd better start using them for something, so here's my first Geisha cards. I saw some fan embellies at Walmart, but they were expensive, so I improvised and made my own. LOL. I wanted to jazz it up the hair a little bit, so I strung silver and gold thread with little seed beads thru her bun.

Card Deets:

Stamps: Geisha Anya (TGF), Butterfly Dreams and Dot Spot (PTI)

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Dew Drop Platnium Planet, Fresh Snow and Orange Zest (PTI)

Paper: Kraft (PTI), Black Linen (Creations Unlimited), American Crafts

Other: gold and silver thread, seed beads, copics, spica

Here goes nothing...

Just some colorin'

I got some new Greeting Farm stamps for my birthday...(yes, i have wonderful friends who feed my addictions!) I was itching to ink them up and play with the coloring. As you can see, I had a reallly hard time with the 80's Anya hair! I'm not too sure about the Geisha color combo, but she's really fun to color. Now I just have to figure out how I want to use them.

Oh, and I can't wait for my new copics to come in! The waiting just kills me!
