Here’s the new 3D Fireplace Card that was so easy to put together, using either the pdf or a digital cutting file:

The 3D card folds down flat for mailing!  Too cool.

Just use Adela’s template and I had some fun with cutting rectangle shapes & using a masking technique to create an old fashioned fireplace … the same one my parents still have!

Hard Knock Life

So, I’m pretty sure I’m past the deadline, but it’s Thursday here & here’s my go with Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #93, Annie.  Such fun songs in that musical & this was my favourite song of the movie.  It’s drawn up in illustrator using Clarendon Type.  Quick & simple & great for a friend who’s having a rough day.

Just had to have some quick fun with this challenge because, when I was about my DD’s age, Annie was the big musical.  Here is an ancient photo of in a ballet adaptation of Annie. LOL.  I love musicals!


Piano Pocket

So this is a challenge for this week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #92, Napoleon Dynamite.  To be completely honest, I have not seen the movie.  I have seen clips of the movie, where he’s dancing on the stage.  So I guess that’s where I was going with this interpretation … dancing…music…piano?  Bad segway, but there ya go.

My card on the front, probably THE most plain card I have ever made.

Inside, it’s a Piano Pop UP Gift Card Pocket card!  Whew, that was a mouthful.

Gift Card for coffee, baby!

The template is from Extreme Cards!  No special cutters used, just an exacto knife & a ruler.  Straight lines & the template.  I did have some problems (as you can see) with Black Embossing Powder going EVERYWHERE.  What a mess.   I did my best to cover up the mess with brown CS.

You can still see a bit, but it is what it is.

And it POPS UP!  Too much fun!

I did re-drawn Extreme Cards Template again in mirror, so that when I printed it out on the card stock, you wouldn’t see the lines.  (once cut, just flip it over)  Here ya go …

Not Unnoticed

I was checking out this week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #91, and the movie was Gandhi.  Ben Kingsley, acting as Gandhi, was completely convincing.   I wasn’t sure what do to with this challenge, so I decided to focus only on the sentiment, to encourage serving & volunteering.

Sometimes the most difficult cards for me to do are the simplest cards, kwim?  I print out this sentiment, then just used a scoring board (my Martha Stewart one, which I find so easy to use), and this is what I came up with.  I think I might use it as an encouragement card for my DD, who has been helping me out with some non-paid chores around the house much more then her younger brothers.  I want her to know it doesn’t go unnoticed.


Holiday Stars

I went with a quick card for this week for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #87, The Holiday …

Here’s where the inspiration came from.  I’d link in the video here, but if you start watching the movie midway through, it ruins it.

here’s the inside of the trifold card …

The papers are from Stampin’ Up!, (ink Cameo Coral) as well as the Star Punches & the sentiment (Quick & Cute), the eyelettes are from Making Memories.

i {♥} papers

My appologies, but  better late than never!  We have a really special blog hop and challenge going on all around Paper Craft Planet (that started Sunday, and Tuesday for my belated Canadian readers, thank you Customs Canada) It’s all about BLING! You can call it paper make-up, jewelry, bling, whatever — it’s that little bit of glaze, glitter and glam that you add to your cards to give them that “finishing touch”. The Supernovas are using the new Petal Press stamps, Summer Garden , for our projects from i{heart}papers.

OK, now it’s your turn! Make a card with a lot of dazzle and you could win the new Petal Press stamps, Summer Garden , for our projects from i{heart}papers. All you need to do is tag your card “iheartbling” and upload it to the Planet. We’ll be keeping an album for everyone that shows off all the entries so far!

Here’s my go with this lovely set that to me called for some pearls …

Armani doesn’t make a blue tuxedo

I am having some fun with being one of the guest designers on Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #84, Father of the Bride.

Isn’t this a clever card?  A Tuxedo Jacket!  HA!  Loved it when I first saw it from Angela Sgro.  It was published, along with a free template in Scrapbookstrendsmagazine.

I had seen this template a LONG time ago, but one of those cards you tuck in the back of your brain & then when I found out what the movie was this week, I had a flash to this scene:


Franck Eggelhoffer: Uh-oh, I bring the wrong color thread. I assumed you’d be wearing a black “tuxado.”
George: It is a black “tuxado.”
Franck Eggelhoffer: I don’t think so, babe. This tux is “nuffy” blue. No doubt about it.
George: What’re you talking about? Armani doesn’t make a blue tuxedo.
Franck Eggelhoffer: Armani don’t also make “polyaster.”

I thought ‘Father of the Bride’ was such a cute movie.  My fellow Cannuk, Martin Short, did a ridiculously funny character of Franck Eggelhoffer, IMO

Just too much fun!  Good for Father’s Day or A wedding or Graduation maybe!


Ooh La La!

There is my go at the Reader’s Choice Colour Inspiration Challenge!  Which one?  Well, Kristina Werner had a fun {2} part Colour Inspiration Challenge.  Part {1} was to submit your own photos & then the votes then led to part {2} of the challenge … the Colour Inspiration!

I’m hoping there’s enough light gray in the mirror copic colouring.

Here was the inspiration photo, taken by Be Creative with Amy.  Good name for a blog :D , btw

Shadow Box Goin’ Nuts

The 3D challenge this week is from Tammy for, 3D61, a Shadow box card .  The super talented Tammy Hershberger has all the instructions & it’s really quick, easy, & fun to throw together.  Give it a go & be sure to add it to Paper Craft Planet with the tag 3D61.

Here’s my go at it:

This is a stamp by Janet Dunn from Studio G.  It came with the cute caption ‘totally nuts for you’, but this week with all of the kids activities in high gear for year end recitals/practices, I’ve been sick & the house looks like a bomb went off … I changed my mind of what I wanted the sentiment to say, so here it how myself & a couple of my close friends who are all in the same boat are feeling’  (in Wendy font) …


Summer Card

Time for a fun summer time card.  I’ve had these flip flops for years, only for at the pool.  Can’t believe I haven’t broken or lost ‘em.  They apparently also serve as inspiration for a card.

Very quick to put together & would be great for a GF!

Here’s a quick sketch for ya.

Be sure to check out Paper Craft Planet’s May Design Team album for more fun summer cards.

The stamp Set is from Stampin’ Up! called A Little Love, Pink Passion Ink & Marker, Paper:  SU Green Galore, SU Tempting Turquoise, Light Turquoise, Sweet Treat Ribbon.
