Penny Black Saturday Challenge Mid Way Reminder-Designed by Me





January Mid Way Reminder

Anything Goes!






Hello! Time for a mid-way reminder for our January challenge-Anything Goes!

For my card today I used 3 Penny Black Stamps Designed by Me 4388K
with sentiments from Snippets and 
fun in the sun. To complete my card I used two files from the Silhouette store...one for the card base and one for the paint brushes.

Adorable PB image was colored with copics and several elements of the stamp are cut out and added on with pop dots.

House Mouse Monday Challenge 232-NEW Friends Mid Way Reminder











Challenge  #232 Mid Way Reminder


Lots and lots of New Designs and Products!
Interpret this anyway you'd like and just tell us what is NEW about your project! Could be anything New, New theme, New Year, New Celebration... up to YOU. As always, we have the Anything Goes Option!



New Friends

Hello mousie lovers!  My card today is a throw back from the "olden days" of my stamping years.  In the beginning of my stamping days, I only had these little single meece stamps and I would put them in all types of scenario's-they were at my mercy!  I belonged to a Yahoo House Mouse group and that was sort of standard practice with us all. I stumbled across a card the other day made by Dorothy Spier-she was the master of getting the most out of her single stamp meecies-bless her heart. Dorthy has since passed away and I cherish each of her creations!

 I decided when I saw this fun Valentine Cut file from the Silhouette Store, it would be perfect to slip in a few meece! I did enlarge the card so I could invite a few more critters to the party! (The finished size is 4.25 x 6)



 Here is just a small pile of my individual house mouse stamps.  You could use meece cut out of scenes as well----if you are needing just a  mouse or two!


I had my Scan N Cut2  cut out the meece...quick and simple, although there were a few casualities in the cutting of the meece-a couple lost tails and..can you find the poor mousie that lost a part of his ear?  Normally I would just rescan the images to have them cut right, but because I knew they would be tucked in under the hearts I just went with it! 



I am sharing with the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge-Anything Goes!







January

Anything Goes!










Hello! Boy I have been gone a long time...holidays always get the best of me... 

Today I am here with a cute little  h.e.l.l.o. card.  I used a little Bear Blank 1 stamp and a cute little h.e.l.l.o. stamp from the Penny Black Snippets set. 

I like to use fun fold type cards when using smaller Penny Black Stamps-they seem to  highlight a small image and bring them front and center. This fun fold is named Peek-A-Boo Birthday Owl Card by Lori Whitlock. I did not use the owl image but instead added my little bear-stamping the sentiment in the message box.  I added a little twine to close the card. I chose Pebbles 6x6 Be Mine paper

 You can open it up and write your message inside.

Penny Black Christmas or Winter Challenge






Christmas/Winter

Mid-way Inspiration


Welcome to our Penny Black Saturday Challenge midway reminder. 

I have soooo many fun images to choose from, it was hard to choose just one for my tag.  I chose to use this cute Snow Kiss stamp and a fun cut file from the Silhouette StoreEvergreen Round Tag. The words were cut using a font named Japan. I used some pretty old fashioned designer papers from Authentique named Wonder and Bo Bunny Father Christmas Collection.


That's it for me tonight...heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to bed I go!

Hot Java Mama-Art Impressions







When I saw this stamp set, I knew I just had to get it. It is so me! I have several "older than me friends and family (if only by a few days)" that it would be perfect! I actually called my daughter in the big city and she picked it up for me!  She knows my stamping addiction!



You know how you text and you get extra letters and funny auto correct messages??...well I am the queen of weird messages and my "older" friends totally get it-they send them too!

I kept the card very simple because the image and sentiment are so darned fun.  Simple-I paper pieced her robe and colored the rest with copics. 

I am sharing with the following challenges:


Now-back to baking Christmas cookies!

Birthday Panda Bear













                                       

Brooklyn turns one!


I made this sweet little Panda card for my grand-niece's birthday last weekend. Darn-I as look at this picture, I realize that Ms. Panda is missing her eyelashes...oh welllllll....and they were so cute!


I used this file from the Silhouette Store:


I made this as a card, so I cut the body twice and made an inset body piece in white for the inside of the card so I would have something to write on. 

Well that's it today for my quick and easy little project.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Christmas or Winter










Christmas/Winter



Hello!  Sorry to be a little late with my Saturday Penny Black card-life sometimes gets in the way!

Well here I am----finally---with my card for the December Challenge-better late than never!

If  you are a a Penny Black fan-you must be familiar with Snowy!  I always get tickled at the stories Judy Jung tells  about Snowy on the Penny Black website blog-she's quite a character.

For my card today I am using Snowy from the transparent set Jolly Friends.  He is colored with copics and mounted on a Lawn Fawn stitched  oval mat. I used a Signo white pen to add little dots of snow for a little something extra.  The sentiment is from another new stamp set that I just got-Warm Wishes. Can't wait to color that one up-it's a cutie!

The base of my card is made with a lovely Sizzix/Tim Holtz thinlit die set Holiday Knit.  I used two of the dies and  alternated the cuts and added alternating colored strips of paper behind each one. A little time consuming, but such a pretty effect!  

That's it for today-I hope you will join our December Challenge-we love to see your creations!
