Back to School Challenge at Melonheadz!

The new challenge is up at Melonheadz Friends! I love back to school, so this was a super fun one for me. I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge, too. :)

I used the School Subjects Kidlettes set for my card. This is the library girl....most of my grandgirls are library girls, so I thought this would be perfectly fitting. Besides, isn't she adorbsies!?

I colored her with copics, added a pearl to her hair bow, then cut her out and attached with foam tape to my card front. Then I decided she needed a wink of stella, so a little bit of sparkle was added as well. Love that stuff.

Be sure to link up with us to be entered in the prize drawing too! :) See you there!!

Product List:
Melonheadz Illustrating, School Subject Kidlettes bundle
Copic markers, Wink of Stella glitter marker
My Creative Time, Love to Learn dies and stamps
October Afternoon, Schoolhouse 8x8 paper pad
Paper clip, pearl bead, chalk, white pen

Scrapping the Little Things

Good morning, it's MONDAY and time for Scrapping the Little Things with the My Creative Time Design Team. Hope you had an awesome weekend, and Monday is being nice to you. :) I'm happily enjoying my Monday morning coffee. But let's get down to the biz.

I made -- are you sitting down???? -- my very first ever SMASH BOOK PAGE!!!!! Check it out. This is my hubby at one of his favorite fishing holes. Can't really tell but he's up high above the water on a cliff looking at the lake below.

The water is so clear you can see if there are fish or not. This day, unfortunately, there were none. Boo. But I got a few awesome pictures and honestly that's all I cared about. LOL

Day 10, SYS2, Cards 2 & 3

Two more techniques from class today! This one is colored embossing - yummy.

And this is layered vellum stamping. Pretty cool - of course much better in real life. ;)

Day 10, Stretch Your Stamps 1 of 3 cards

This card was such fun for me as I got to make my own faux chipboard letters. You probably know, if you are a follower, how much I love my dies and making chipboard shapes/letters with them, so this one is right up my alley. :)

 Letters are Quickutz Alpha, Diesel Classic, upper case.

Day 9, Stretch Your Stamps2, Post #2

My second card is stamping on dark cardstock and embossing with a die. I love this look and embossing without cutting is a technique I really like and don't use enough. After I embossed the sentiment box onto my card, I stamped all around in an ink color a little darker than the cardstock. I then went back and added just a few shadows using the same color in a different shade. 

My sentiment and double hearts are by Verve Stamps; the foliage is by WPlus9.

Day 9, Stretch Your Stamps2

I fell in love completely with Dawn Woleslagle's sketchy outline style for this card!!! 

Isn't this fun?! I LOVE this look!!

Day 8, Stretch Your Stamps2

More graphic designs. This card is a total rip-off of Nichol Magourik's design. I LOVED everything she did - ink colors, stamps she chose, and bling. I did, however, change the sentiment, but HAD to make it. :)

Avery Elle Rounded Diamonds stamps and coordinating dies

Sequins, pearls, silver embossing, white fabric paint

Day 8, Stretch Your Stamps2, repeat graphics

My repeat graphics design for class today. I'm not sure I like mine that well, but it will do. ;) I love the colors; the same Stampin' Up inks I used for yesterday's card; So Saffron yellow, Pumpkin Pie orange, and Old Olive green. Again, the Avery Elle Rounded Diamonds stamp set.

Try it Tuesday - fun project!

Welcome to Tuesday with My Creative Time. Today is our Try It Tuesday where we share a technique you may not have tried before. This one is so much fun and super easy. All you need is some wire and washi tape! Here's what I made for my project.....

and here's how I used it. Fun little treat bag with a lined notebook and matching pencils.

I even matched the washi tape to the pencils! :)

and spruced up the front cover with these cute stamps and dies from the Fun Speech Bubbles set.

Because it was so much fun to make matching twistie ties, I went a little nuts and made a bunch more. Look out Christmas presents......there may be washi tape overload this year. hahaha!

Product List:
My Creative Time, Fun Speech Bubbles stamps and dies
Washi tape, wire, treat bag, goodies to put in the treat bag
Embossing ink, embossing powder

It's Day 5 of Stretch Your Stamps2 Class

Oh, foam tape, how do I love thee??! A lot. Really. :) So today's card was extra fun for me and I really love how it turned out. Dimensional flowers and pearl bling are my favorite!!!

I used the Bo Bunny, Weekend Market 6x6 paper pad for this one. I really wish the images could show you how pretty it is in real life. I just love the color combination and deep, rich tones and thought they would be awesome in flower form. Turns out I was right....again! ;) Haha! Combined stamp sets from My Creative Time and Technique Tuesday make up my sentiment.

Layered flowers. The pearl bling is also by Bo Bunny.

  Foam tape, layers, and a little Wink of Stella.
