Trying new things



Happy Sunday, hope you all have had a beautiful weekend.  We went up to Punta Gorda, FL yesterday and had a nice morning at the Farmers Market ending up with lunch at Laishley Crab House, looking out over the Marina.  I have a quick share for you today.
I love love love trying out new techniques and fancy folds.  This is my first attempt (well actually 2nd) to do the Direct to Paper Technique.  I got the pattern for this card from Michelle Zindorf who is the Queen of creative paper coloring techniques.  Direct to paper is using the ink pad to color your background.  My card was done directly from Michelle's tutorial using Weather Together Stamp set and the Umbrella Weather Framelits (sold in a bundle 142319). 



Well, off to take care of my chickens.  We have a Malaysian Serama rooster named Buddy who is looking for a new home.  He was the sole survivor of a racoon attack on my small pen we keep the Serama youngsters in.  I hand raised him but we can't keep another Rooster.  Lil Bill is the king of the roost and the girls (even the large Hens) look to him.  I am hoping someone takes him home soon, so he doesn't have to go to the auction.  
My Buddy

Have a wonderful week, be kind, and DO ONE THING TODAY THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!!!

Our Wednesday Class

Here is a card we did in our Wednesday class here in Fort Myers.  My ladies meet the second & forth Wednesday.   We do three cards for $7.50, no other purchase required.   


This is done with our Lift Me Up stamp set and the Balloon Adventures Thinlits dies.  I have to admit this card is a CASE from Connie Stewart who is one of my Stampin' UP! Heros.  She is fabulous.  It is done in Navy Smoky Slate and Whisper White.  The Designer Paper is from the Sale-A-Bration flyer and was free with a $50 purchase.  I love love love this navy paper with the clouds.  Super cute!
If you are local and interested in attending one of our classes, just contact me, and I can give you further details.

We will be doing a 3 super cute Birthday Cards next time.

A couple of shares

Sale-A-Bration is well underway and this first card is one of the free sets you can get with a $50 order.
Hey Chick (143331 Clear mount), (143328 Wood Mount) is the first one I got but I have not used it until now. 
I saw a card similar to this online and used what I had on hand to complete it.

The card base is black with teal mat, the top mat is done in Natural White Card Stock (retired).  The grass and sky were done with a watercolor pencil & blender pen.  The fence is stamped in Early Espresso.  The chickens were puffed out by rubbing a stylist around the back to break the fibers.  The chickens were colored with our new watercolor pencils. 

The second card was done with Hostess set Love You Lots (141801 clear) from the Annual Catalog & can only be purchased with Hostess benefits.

This card is done in Melon Mambo Black & White.  The balloons were punched from Pop of Pink Specialty Designers Series Paper.  The Ladybugs were stamped on the white paper then again on a scrap of Real Red and fussy cut I used the ribbon die from the Mini Treat bag framelits to add a little fufu used the grey watercolor pencil to add a little shadow to the ladybug.  Stamped my sentiment & inside with Melon Mambo.   I used the confetti heart punch on the inside along with a sentiment from Suite Sayings set.
Have a wonderful week, be kind and Do One Thing Today that Makes YOU Happy!

A quick share

Good Morning all!!
I am in love with the Falling in Love Suite from the Occasions Catalog.  For today share I used a pleating technique and altough the Designer Paper is from the Blooms & Bliss Suite from the Annual Catalog it still feels right with the Falling in Love Suite.  It's great how Stampin' UP! products blend together.



The colors are Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugar Plum and Whisper White.  To make the tag I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits Die (currently on Backorder).  They have become my go to shaped dies.   I used the So In Love Stamp Set for the sentiment and stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink.  The pleate uses a 10 x 5 piece of DSP,  to get the full instructions contact me and I will sent you a copy. 
Until next time
