Art Impressions Humorous ICU Step Card

Hello, dear peeps!

I’m glad to be back home recuperating from my surgery. Thank you all for your kind wishes and notes!

I wanted to share with you the fun step card I made for the very caring nursing staff at the hospital:

Hahaha! Ahhh, those breezy hospital gowns!

(Oops, I see I took this pic before I took out the temporary gathering stitches on the curtain. Ha! I was rushing to get it done before I left for surgery, and the card’s gone on to its new home now.)

The current Art Impressions challenge (#212) is: Bling, Glitter or Glossy. Take a closer look at her glossy patent leather bag and shoes and glittery coat, eyeshadow and hair, and bling earrings:

She certainly makes a bold statement & fits Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge: Red, White and/or Blue. 

To make the step card easily, I used the Sizzix Hearts Step-Up die, but folded the first two hearts back down and used the third to help hold the curtain. Easy-peasy! I was in a bit of a quandary about the curtain… With the card open, it looks taller, but folds up it’s even with the left side. I could have made it a smidge shorter when it folds up so that it sits even when opened… what you think???

Materials used:

  • Art Impressions Get Well stamp set
  • Sizzix Card, Hearts Step-Up die
  • Spellbinders Conversation Speech Bubble One Dies
  • SugarPea Designs Heart Beat SugarCut die
  • Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite Paper Pack
  • Core’dinations cardstock: red, blue & white
  • Memento dye ink – Tuxedo Black
  • Copic Markers: B21,29; BG13,15; C1,3; E00,02; R21,25
  • Pebbles, Inc. Chalk
  • Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops: Gloss White & Morning Dew
  • Kuretake Zig Wink of Stella clear
  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L tape runner
  • Simply Defined ‘Stay Put’ Glue
  • Misc. Seafoam gauze material (Hobby Lobby), thread

Thank you for stopping by today. I’ll be back as soon as I’m back on my feet!

Newton’s Nook Find Your Paradise Tropical Kitty Card

Hello, and welcome back!

It’s hard to believe the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Hop is more than half over!

  

Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge is Stencil It and Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge #49 is a sketch challenge:

Here’s what I came up with:

Yep, when I imagine paradise, I’m definitely going to want a hammock!! Of course, I’ll want a jaguar or bobcat to cuddle with, too! >^.^< Can’t wait until they’re peaceful critters again!

I like how the embossing of the Art Deco diamond die kind of looks like sun rays! The shimmering cardstock looked more of a golden-orange-yellow on its own, but I still like the cool accent.

A couple of small details:

     

I love the shine of that BoBunny embossing paste on the fun Ocean Spray stencil! And the Flower Soft on the anthers of the Hibiscus stamens adds a little dimension. Did you notice kitty’s claws have snagged that cup, but are loosing their grip? At least it’s not going to spill on him!

Materials used:

  • Newton’s Nook Designs: Aloha Newton, Newton Loves Coffee, and Paradise Palms
  • Spellbinders dies: Art Deco Ritz Decorative Elements & Card Creator A2 Valiant Honor
  • Die Cuts and More (DCAM): Ocean Spray stencil
  • Memento dye inks: Bamboo Leaves & Tuxedo Black
  • Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Peacock Feathers
  • Copic Markers: C3; E11,23,25,33,51,74; G24,99; R20,22,24,29,32; RV02,17; Y13,15,28; YG61,67; YR02,04,24,31; W1
  • BoBunny Caribbean glitter paste
  • Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops: Morning Dew
  • Flower Soft: Daffodil
  • Simply Defined 80# Heavyweight Cardstock
  • Core’dinations white cardstock
  • DCWV Shimmer Stack
  • 3m aluminum oxide 150 grit sandpaper
  • Tombow Xtreme permanent adhesive
  • Simply Defined “Stay Put” All Purposed Liquid Adhesive
  • Therm-o-Web Zots Medium clear adhesive dots
  • Misc. ribbon

I am playing along with the following hops and challenges… click on any one of them for more information on how you can join the fun.

This will probably be my last post for the Coffee Lovers Hop as I’ve caught up with my pre-made cards for this hop and probably won’t be able to make up any more. Y’all TRY to have fun without me. Wink-wink, I KNOW you will! Craft til you drop is the real theme of the hop! Thanks again for stopping by and for all your sweet comments!

One last bit of humor before I go:

Stampendous Laurel Burch Coffee Mug Card and Gift Set

Good Monday morning my coffee deprived peeps! I have another fun card for you for the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

  

I actually got up in time to see sunrise at the beach this morning and I took along my Laurel Burch umbrella to show you (you’ll see why in a minute):

A friend of mine has that same bag and since Bealls, FL, just had a sale on the matching umbrella and mug, I got them for her and then pulled out my Stampendous Laurel Burch stamps and made this mug card to go with them:

I printed the template for the card from Splitcoast Stampers HERE. I cut it out twice to cover the backs of each side where the Copics bled through. (Don’t forget to color it OPEN let your Copics bleed onto the sentiment page! Wonder how I know that?!!)

And here’s the detail. I HAD to throw in that pup with the butterflies on him… too stinkin’ cute! I love how the IrRESISTible Pico Embellisher adds those fab shiny dots! Both Stampendous sets come with stencils to help you color. I used the circles and triangles from the Indigo Cat set.

Supplies used:

  • Stampendous stamp sets: Laurel Burch Indigo Cats, Laurel Burch Dog Park, Thoughtful Wishes
  • Core’dinaations white cardstock
  • Tsukineko Versamark ink
  • Zing! gold embossing powder glitter finish
  • Imagine Crafts IrRESISTible Pico embellisher: gold
  • Copic markers: B21,24,29,69; BV02; G24; R22; V04; Y17; YR02,04
  • Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink
  • Pebbles, Inc. Chalks
  • iCraft Therm-o-Web adhesive runner

I am playing along with the following hops and challenges… click on any one of them for more information on how you can join the fun.

Thanks again for stopping by!
