My DD isn’t into the ribbon thing, she’s more grungy–raggedy-denim & that’s where I started with this project.
I repurposed this old watch that for whatever reason, I hadn’t thrown out. (Anybody remember the Oprah watch-ribbon craze? Well this was my cheapy watch that I had some fun with & then the battery died & I think it was more expensive to change the battery than to replace the cheapo watch). lol
and just made the soft side toward the wrist & the bumpy side is where I adhered the flower.
And Bob’s Yur Uncle, a little shabby-chique brooch-bracelet for DD.
Here’s a link, for those who want the svg, of the “marigold-ish” type layered flower I drew.
Oh my last day of the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, this week’s challenge, #66 was Clueless.
Here’s my Plaid Card …
Here’s a close up of the Stampin’ Up Sentiment: That Fine Print, in Basic Black Marker. The Paper is from DCWV Matstack: Safari Kids & the Flowers are from Ka Jinker.
Thanks for the fun Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge folks!
I’ve been having bunches of fun with the Moxie Fab World Trigger Tuesdays lately. This week’s inspiration photo, You’ve Been Pinked, was chosen by Julie Masse with this Girl’s Birthday Party Candy Bar Photo:
I knew what I wanted to do with this challenge. I must say, It took me forever to find where I first saw the blooming hearts idea. What a pain, I should have book marked it, because it obviously stuck in my brain when I made the card. Here is a Blooming flowers idea, although I’m not sure that that’s where I first saw the idea. Sorry whoever it was, but this is my take:
Used: Stampin’ Up Sweet Heart STamp Set, K & Company Wild Raspberry Dsigner Paper, ColorBox Brown Chalk Ink, Dimensionals, White CS, Martha Stewart Scoring Board, Corner Rounder, Tim Holtz Stamp, White EP, Versa Mark Ink, Pink Rick Rack.
So I have a couple of quick crafting creations to share. The first one, is a Flower Pot Lollipop Valentine. I’m not sure where I first saw it, because I remember making them for my DD JK class like 7 years ago. Oh my time flies. When I googled it, I found a tutorial from Dawn Olchefske’s blog.
That’s it. It’s pretty straight forward & would be a fun Valentine’s gift for a child’s classmates.
This was a fun technique & a new twist on the Basic Pop Up Card …
My DD is the dancer in the family, so I thought she’d like this. There are more fun interpretations of the Pop Up Twirl Card at the SCS Gallery.
Used: Lollipop, reative Memories Heart duo Heart Punch, Vanilla CS, Stamp from Michaels Dollar Bin (Kolette Hall G Studio), Stampin Up Markers ruby Red & Basic Black, My Mind’s Eye Bohemia Blossom Angel Small Damask/Pink Paper, Offray Ribbon, Tacky Tape, Making Memories Antique Brads.
Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch, Marvy Punches, Bella Rose Stampin’ Up! DSP, En Pointe SU Stamp Set, Bamboo Skewer, Embroidery Floss, Pink Pirouette CS, Close To Cocoa CS, Corner Rounder.
Time for Kristina Wern’ers Colour Inspiration #55! This week’s photo comes from this fabulous skirt & shoes:
No stamping, just some left over material cut in a circle, with a running stitch around the outside & then gathered in to make a fabric yoyo. Apparently they sell templates to make yoyo’s, but I’ve never understood why. Maybe it’s faster. Anyhoo, here’s my card:
Used: Vanilla CS, Really Rust CS, Grey CS, Buttons from my stash, EKSuccess Edge Punch, Unknown PP, Grey & Rust Cross Stitch Embroidery Floss, Fabric left over from an autumn table runner I made a couple of years ago.
Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #36! Beauty & the Beast. I had the privilege of finding out the movie ahead of time & guest for the super fun Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!!! Can you tell I was excited to be asked?
Being 30-something, I didn’t see this movie as a child, but my oldest daughter went through the disney stage & yes we own the DVD. I do love musicals and this movie came rushing back into my head with images of the enchanted rose. That & humming “be our guest” each time I’ve set the table this week.
I’ve been wanting to try this Coffee Filter technique I saw over at Martha for over a year now & this was a great excuse to try it. I used Copic Markers, instead of water colour paints. I think I would use paint next time, because now I have to buy refills for my Copic Markers. Not the end of the world, but it uses a lot of ink. Here’s my go at making a “rose card”.
The Petals of the flower, after painted (or markered in this case) need to be curled into a point. See Video instructions.
You wouldn’t be able to put this into a regular envelope. Honestly, I can’t take a good picture of it, but the technique is just so cool, because it really does turn out like a real rose.
Used: Always Artichoke DSP, Always Artichoke CS, Martha Stewart Satin Putty Ribbon, Eight #4 White Paper Coffee Filters, Copic Markers: R59 Cardinal & E07 Light Mahogany, Bamboo Skewer (to curl edges of flowers into a point), Martha Stewart Doily Edge Punch, Flower Wire for Stem, Super Sticky Tape, Template from Cassie Chappell, mommymakesroses.com as seen on Martha Stewart.
This week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, CSCC31, is Steel Magnolias! A great pick for Mother-Daughter Movie!
This is one of those kleenex box movies, laughing & crying. A great hormonal release LOL. There are so many memorable scenes from this movie that it was hard to choose something to go with for a theme.
I chose to hand write (yes, in my chicken scratch, so I’ll translate for ya!) a verse from Matthew 28:20. ”And surely I am with you always to the very end of age”. I find that Verse quite comforting and reminded of the deep sorrow in the movie and how you can be comforted in all situations.
The texture on the tree is called Sweet Pea Flower Soft. It’s kinda like a rubbery foam, I guess. It comes in a tone of colours (this is Sweet Pea) & is like flocking. It’s just a little container, but I think it’ll last me years. You don’t need very much. When I was at Heather’s Stamping Haven, Heather told me to try it with their High Tack PVA Glue. It dries clear, but when I took this picture, it was still wet.
Used: Brown Embossing Powder (SU retired), Versa mark Ink, Flower-Soft Snow Peas, Flower Soft PVA Glue, Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, Always Artichoke DSP, Kraft CS, Mat Pack & Piercer, Crafts Ribbon, Bible.
