1 Any occasion card or Easter

Another Penny Black rubber stamp.  This is a rather large stamp, covering almost the entire front of this 6 x 6 card.

 A bit of stitching, fibers, die cuts and Copic coloring.

 Inside has a simple die cut and leaf stitching.

Thanks for looking today and hope all is well in your world.

0 Life is good (redo)

Before putting this card up on eBay I decided to rework it a little.  I actually made it back in July 2012 (original post here).  I wasn't totally pleased with it and wanted to change it a little.

<=== this is the original card.....

I moved the acrylic stars around and then removed the original bow and replaced it with a metal moth (or is it a butterfly?)  Also added a gem eye on the bird, a flower and gem on top of the birdcage and a bigger loopier bow at the bottom.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

1 Penny Black any occasion card


I dug out my rubber stamps!  Took me a bit to refresh my stamping and Copic coloring, but it was fun.   I even used some texture paste on the lower right (the big leaf and stem looking area) - gave it a little more dimension/texture. This card can be for any occasion, to include fast approaching Easter!

Be well and thanks for stopping by!

0 St. Patrick's Day card

I've been working on a few cards lately.  I always feel like vintage images make the best St. Patrick's day cards.  Have also gone back to listing some of my things on eBay - here. 

Added some flowers and ribbon and other little embellishments to include my usual stitching.

Thanks for looking and I hope all is well with you! Pin It

0 I'm so dancy

Ella started dance classes this year and loves it!  I made this shirt for her as a spoof on a favorite song line of hers "I'm so fancy."  I changed it up to "I'm so dancy" and made it in reverse so she and her teacher could read it correctly in the wall of dance mirrors.

 Selfie in the dance mirror.

For those interested in the crafty part of it:   I used Siser easy-weed heat transfer vinyl.  Image was designed in Make The Cut and cut on my KNK Maxx Air.

2 Zebra Stripes, no Zebras, birthday party

We had Ella's 9th birthday party this weekend and it had been a few years since she has had a party so we tried to make it super special for her.  She chose the theme of zebra stripes, black and pink, but no zebras.  I had no idea how much stuff was out there in zebra stripes!  It's everywhere!

A quick banner for the birthday girl.  I started with a blank banner and cut the vinyl wording in removable vinyl so it can be changed to suit the next party or occasion. No zebra stripes on it.  It was a last minute creation and I didn't have the time or vinyl to make it fit in with the theme.

 While I was finishing up the cake decorating, Ella and daddy were finishing up the balloons.... 50+ helium balloons.

The cake and cupcakes!  I can't remember the last time I baked a cake.  Decades ago, I'm sure, and even then it was always sheet cakes, never layers, never nicely decorated.  This one scared me, but I wanted to give it a go for Ella. 

Stripes inside, too!  Wasn't sure if they came out or not until the cake got cut!  Looks like stripes to me!

Goodie bags with the kids names on them and put some of their name stickers inside, too.

Just a few of the zebra striped gifts!

....and the zebra striped pinata.  Almost forgot she asked for a pinata so had to make this for her.  First time making a pinata.  Wasn't difficult but did take a couple of hours.

She had a great birthday! and I'm glad to be done shopping and thinking in zebra stripes!

1 National Teacher Appreciation Day

National Teacher Appreciation Day is coming up, Tuesday, May 6th.  This is a simple little teacher gift that shows a child's admiration for their teacher.  For their teacher with super power!

After designing an apple shape with a heart cut out in Make The Cut software, I cut it from craft plastic (0.20 PetG) on my KNK Maxx Air.   I then created a 'super' insignia and cut it from red vinyl.  It's now ready for the young student to create the card and add their own art and wording for their Super Teacher.

The teacher can add it to a key ring, purse handle, notebook wire, etc.
