Click Clack

There is a new stamp company called Lawn Fawn - they have the cutest stamps! I bought 2 sets: Just My Type and Just My Type, Too from Limelight Papercrafts (they are having a Memorial Day sale btw!).

I've been seeing cute shaped mini-cards, so I thought I'd try it out with these sets.
For this card I did some masking and repeated the "click clack" in Colorbox Charcoal ink. I clear embossed the typewriter and colored in the keys with a Uni-Ball white opaque pen. Thank You was stamped with PTI Raspberry Fizz ink (you can see I first tried to stamp with chalk ink but since the Bazzill paper is textured it didn't take it well). I added some Raspberry Fizz polka dotted ribbon to finish it off.

For this card I used some new October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper (bought from Die Cuts R Us - great service from this online store as well!!) I embossed the typewriter with white embossing powder on black paper and blue Bazzill paper. I added some ric-rac ribbon attached with the Tim Holtz mini-stapler. Love that thing!

Hope you are having a great long weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello My Friend

Hopefully you can stand another Stella card! I made a quick card - love paper piecing her dress! I misted some mini Maya Road chipboard letters spelling out HELLO, but then messed the whole thing up, so I had to redo the "Hello" using stamps. I can't wait to use those letters again - they are so cute and small - I'll show you soon.

Have a great long weekend ! Happy Memorial Day!

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Stella; Studio Calico Storytime Alphabet
Paper: SU! Vanilla; Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety
Other: Corner chomper; Cosmo Cricket Tiny Alpha letters; Jillibean Soup ribbon; SU! mini paper clip; EK Success Fancy Flight border punch

Wedding Wishes

Here is a wedding card (sorry for awful photo - took it in the evening!) using a wood stamp from American Crafts called Bride and Groom. I thought it was such a pretty image. I found a great blog via Lawn Fawn Stamps called Off The Wall Craftiness. She had a fun challenge #8 inspired by showers, weddings, babies, rain, and umbrellas with this beautiful image below. I used some PTI Aqua Mist paper and SU! Barely Banana. You can win a Lawn Fawn set if you play along!

Products used on my wedding card: Sizzix embossing folder, EK Success border punch, pearls, corner chomper, satin ribbon. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

La La La

This is Chelsea! She is adorable in her own little world listening to music. I love her long flowing hair :). I don't think I've used her before. A few new products used here: Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety pattern paper, EK Success Fancy Flight Border punch, and Spotlight Kit butterfly image on upper left.

The sketch is Club Anya and Friends Saturday Sketch 19. This was a really fun one to use!

Kokuyo Adhesive Comparison

I was very disappointed (like everyone else) when Kokuyo Dot 'n' Roller was discontinued! From various blogs, I found out that the adhesive is available from other sources. :)

I just received an order from Jetpens with refills called Kokuyo Dot Liner Acid Free Original Tape Refill - 8.4 mm X 16 m - Permanent (KOKUYO TA-D400N-08). I'm happy to say that these fit in the original cartridge and work exactly the same. It just looks a little different and you get 9 feet more (width is about the same). I did the ft/m and mm/inch conversion lol! The price from Jetpens is $4.67.

Here is a picture comparing the Dot 'n' Roller and Dot Liner (from Jetpens) adhesive:

Just to let you know Jetpens has free shipping over $25 and they have the Uni-ball Signo Broad white pens. My 1st order was a couple of months ago when Kristina Werner talked about how good this pen was. They have some adorable pencil cases too :). I placed the adhesive order on 5/20/10 and I received my package today! I am not affiliated with this company at all. Just very happy with their service and the products! Hope this info helps!!

Hugs to You

I was going through my button collection and realized I had some Basic Grey Ambrosia buttons and papers that I had never used (I don't think!). The bright orange matches her hair! I was getting bored using browns. I'll admit this is waaaaay bright!

Such pretty and elegant patterns in this collection. This Stella image I think is adorable to send cards to friends. I have collected some gorgeous Maya Roads and Jenni Bowlin pins (used here) and finally used them. I'm afraid people will stick themselves lol ! Anyways, hopefully this card won't hurt anyone.

I got a new EK Success border punch called Fancy Flight - so pretty! Ribbon is A Muse stitched ribbon and sentiment is from Hero Arts. The sketch is a great one from this week's Sketch For You To Try. Jen has really fun ones to try every Saturday.

My Friend Stella

I love Stella's bob - wish I could have that haircut and look so adorable!! I had a bunch of her colored in and paper pieced her outfit (and rest of pattern paper) with Basic Grey Kioshi pattern paper. Love the soft colors. The base paper is SU! but the Papertrey Ink ribbon (Lavendar Moon) is a good match. The sentiment is from the Spotlight Kit which I gave in and bought :) . So many cute stamps in that set!

Sketch is Farm Fresh Friday's Mary's Sketch here.You have until Wednesday to play!

Hope you had a great weekend! I had time to make a few cards which I'm very happy about!

Happy Birthday Baby!


I inked up The Cat's Pajamas set called A Beary Good Year. PJ is wishing Asher a Happy 1st Birthday (which I have to leave for in a little bit :) ) I used Basic Grey 6x6 Kioshi paper pad, Making Memories letter stickers, and American Crafts alphas (for the 1 on the cake and exclamation). 

The sketch is from TCP Tuesday. You still have time to play !! 

Have a great weekend!!

Welcome Baby Boy!

It's been almost a month since my last post! Yikes! It has been awhile since I've crafted - mostly due to the fact that my craft area was a huge mess. Fortunately I did some clean up this past weekend and I will look forward to stamping more now!

Well here is a card I made last night - trying for that simple and clean look. Not quite happy with it though! All stamps are from Inkadinkado clear set called "Baby Boy." Added a button and some Hero Arts gems. The base paper is A Muse cardstock. Inka stamps are not my favorites at all (quality not as good because I don't believe they are photopolymer) but Colorbox chalk inks and Versamagic inks work best on these stamps.
