Birthday 44 - MDSM106

So, my birthday was yesterday! As I am an identical twin... my sister, Debbie shares this special day with me.  I miss those special years of celebrating that day together.

And YES! The title is correct - I am 44! I am forever reminded of that Ickey Woods TV commercial -- where he's in the deli and they call number 44.... and he shouts "whoo number 44, that's me!"  <---Well, that's me! lol!

My husband brought me tulips and we tried a new bakery (Nothing Bundt Cakes). Wow! They were delicious.  We had the Carrot Cake and the White Chocolate Raspberry -- both had cream cheese frosting. YUM!

I used the sketch found on the MDS Monday Blog.  Thanks Beth! You may view the sketch challenge here:
 MDS Monday - MDSM106

Oh Wait, here's the sketch:


I realize after I created it that I chose spring-like colors.  For those that remember... the previous MDS Monday Challenge and sketch called for a spring page...and I didn't follow that.  Well... I must have felt guilty...so here's my spring page Anita! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Background - Pear Pizzazz
Stamp Brush Set - Decorative Overlays (Whisper White); Enjoy Every Moment (dotted circle - Whisper White); Beautiful Birthday (words - Pear Pizzazz); Handpicked for Mom (tulip - Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White)
Punch - Square (filled w/Pink Pirouette DSP)
Embellishments - Poly Stitched Ribbon (bow cropped); Soft Blooms and Festive Blooms(flowers); Twitterpated (buttons - Pear Pizzazz)

Happy Ladder Day

LOL! My brother needed a card for his boss, and he wanted to incorporate the ladder safety warning image on it.  I told him that I would be happy to come up with something for him.

As it turns out, March 24th is actually "Ladder Day".  Here's what I found in the 'Urban Dictionary' :

Ladder Day is a non-denominational holiday that falls on the 24th day of March. It is celebrated in the United States, with origins traced back to the southern hamlets of Rockland County, New York. Celebrators of all religions and walks of life gather to share in the joy that is Ladder day, usually by consuming large volumes of champagne and orange juice. This holiday is the first of the spring season, and is an opportunity for patrons to lift their spirits in anticipation of warmer weather and the end of winter.
I created this in My Digital Studio, and printed it on Naturals White Cardstock.
Supplies Used:
Punch - Square (filled w/Summer Sun)
Embellishments - Glimmer Kit (frame recolored Basic Black); OSHA Ladder Safety Warning Label (from the internet)
Font - Arial Bold (Basic Black)

Sweet Lotus




Wow! So happy to have received my new goodies from Stampin' Up! New stamp sets, paper and washi tape! LOL!

I have to say... I was a little apprehensive to try the new Lotus Blossom triple-step stamp set, as I wasn't sure about what colors to use! Ha! There are so many possibilities with this set.

I used Strawberry Slush and So Saffron on my flowers and Smoky Slate on the stems.  I first stamped the 1st stamp in Strawberry Slush, then stamped off (on a scrap piece of paper) then stamped image on card front. Then, I stamped the 2nd stamp in So Saffron and stamped it onto the card from lining up the two points on top. Finally, with the 3rd stamp... I stamped it in So Saffron, stamped off (on a scrap piece of paper) then stamped onto the card front. Whew! I lot of work, but the final product is amazing!  I did the same with the stem. With the 1st stamp in Smoky Slate and the 2nd with Smoky Slate too, but I stamped off on a scrap piece of paper.

This is the first time I used washi tape on my cards.  I believe it really dresses it up quite nicely... the washi tape is adhered to black cardstock, so it looks gray in the background instead of white -- pretty cool!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamp sets - Lotus Blossom, And Many More
Ink - Strawberry Slush, So Saffron, Smoky Slate
Paper - Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories - Sweet Sadie Washi Tape, Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon

Thanks for taking a peek!

Beach Fun - MDSM105




I'm playing with the sketch challenge on MDS Monday today. You may view the challenge here:

Anita asked us to follow the sketch, as well as to make it a spring-like theme with flowers or plants. Well, my page is more summery than spring-like.... hope that's ok.  It does have flowers and plants! =)

I decided to group my photos together to create one great photo.  My husband and I love this photo... we were certainly not expecting the big wave when this photo was taken.  It almost took out our camera too, but luckily the camera was on a high enough rock -- everything was ok! lol

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Background - Crumb Cake
Embellishments - Paradise Found (flowers)
Stamp Brush Set - Paradise Found (leaves - Lucky Limeade; palm tree - Close to Cocoa and Lucky Limeade; words - Whisper White, Pool Party and Calypso Coral); Natural Compositions Overlay (Sahara Sand)

Sammamish River

I believe this is the first time I didn't create a double-page spread that had coordinating pages! (This page will be next to my previous post.  I hope they won't look too different next to each other when printed.  I only had this one photo taken in July, and wanted to include it in our 2014 photobook.

I was inspired by a layout on the Sweet Shoppe blog, but I believe I changed it way too much to be considered actually using it.  I'll show it here anyway, and you can determine if I did or not. LOL!

If you can imagine it.... I sort of used the bottom layout! =)

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies Used:
Background - Very Vanilla Textured Cardstock
Embellishments - Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (Cherry Cobbler cropped); Glimmer Kit (frame, scallop trim, dot trim, heart)
Stamp Brush Sets - Vintage Overlays #8 (Basic Black)

Snoqualmie


I decided to continue working on our 2014 photobook with our trip to Snoqualmie Falls in July 2014. I did create a 12x12 calendar page (mirrored image of this layout), but wanted to include it within our photobook too.  I did change a few things... the stitching is not all around the photo in this one and I added the journaling to this page rather than leaving it blank (as in the calendar page).

You may view the 12x12 calendar page here to see it: Falls - DGSC120

Thanks for looking!

Supplies Used:
Background - Very Vanilla Textured Cardstock
Embellishments - Staples and Stitching (zigzag stitch - Very Vanilla); Baker's Twine (Early Espresso); Soft Blooms (Crumb Cake recolored Mossy Meadow; Very Vanilla; So Saffron)

Forever Love - MDSM104

 
I was a little bit intimidated by the sketch challenge found on the MDS Monday blog this week. Not sure why... maybe it was all those boxes with paper rather than photo boxes.  Well, getting out of my comfort zone it good - right!  YES! The more I worked with this sketch...the more I felt comfortable with it.  Thanks Jeanna!

What worked perfectly with this sketch were the Project Life cards... each box (excluding the photo) is a Project Life card! The digital download kit that I used for this is the 'Love Story Project Life' kit, and most all the stamps are from that kit too (excluding the background overlay stamp).

A few details I'd like to point out. I layered a punched heart on top of the black heart in the upper-left Project Life card.  With the bottom-middle Project Life card... I added a stamp heart (the card had the same heart, but in black), I used an 2 arrow stamps and cropped them to make them look like it was going through the heart, and I added the word stamps 'Love' and 'Always'.

The photo is a picture of Mike's parents.  Back in December 2014, his Mom got the whole Malcor family together to take family photos.  I absolutely love this photo of them.  I changed the photo to black & white to keep the colors on my page Red/Black/White combination.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Background - Raspberry Ripple
Embellishments - Love Story Project Life kit (3 3x4 cards and 1 4x6 card); Staples
Punch - Heart (Raspberry Ripple); Flag (Basic Black); Square (Raspberry Ripple)
Stamp Brush Set - Decorative Overlays (Basic Black at 30% opacity); Love Story (arrow - Basic Black; hearts and heart string - Basic Black and Raspberry Ripple; words 'love' and 'always' -Raspberry Ripple)
Font - Adorable (Whisper White)

Rainbow State - MDSM103


Playing along with the MDS Monday Blog Challenge (MDSM103), with Yapha's and Tami's great sketch.  I had these beautiful photos of Hawaiian rainbow's that I wanted to scrap, and their sketch really provided a great layout! Thanks Yapha and Tami!

At first I started out with a yellow/blue background, but that didn't draw out my photos at all. Then, a lightbulb went off... why not use Red, Orange, Yellow (and the photo provides the Green, Blue and sort of Purple. LOL!).  I finished off my page with Sunshine and Sprinkles embellishments, as well as Marina Mist ribbon and brads.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Background - Real Red
Punch - Square (filled w/Pumpkin Pie DSP, Daffodil Delight Textured Cardstock)
Embellishments - Sunshine and Sprinkles (sun and rainbow); Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (Marina Mist); Flower Brads (Marina Mist)

Fabulous Petals - CTS112


I am always looking at cards and sketches online to help get my creative juices flowing! I saw this sketch on the CAS(E) This Sketch blog (CTS112).  You may view their blog here... along with all the cards that have been created with this sketch... : http://casethissketch.blogspot.com/2015/02/case-this-sketch-112.html

It took me just a few minutes to decide which stamp set to use -- 'Fabulous Four' was perfect for this!
I used white embossing on the Early Espresso cardstock and just Early Espresso ink on the Whisper White cardstock.  After creating the sentiment, I thought it looked a little plain... so I added my leaves and ribbon to the lower left of my card.  I love how it turned out!

Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets - Fabulous Four, Peaceful Petals
Ink - Versamark, Early Espresso
Paper - Early Espresso, Whisper White, Early Espresso DSP
Accessories - Heat Tool, White Embossing Powder, Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon, scissors, stamp-a-ma-jig, glue dots

Wallace Falls State Park

 

Moving along in our 2014 photobook with our trip to Wallace Falls State Park in Washington State. Mike's Auntie Grace and her friend, Liz, drove up to see sights in Washington State, so we decided to meet up with them here.  It was a gorgeous summer day. The hike to the falls was listed as 2 miles, and it stated it was a medium hike... well, it was a bit strenuous for some.  So, we decided to take the Old Railroad Trail back... which was longer, but less steep.  All in all, I'd say we hiked 5 miles that day.  It was so worth it to view the falls though. Beautiful!

Thanks for looking!

Supplies Used:
Background - Island Indigo
Punch - Square (filled/w Watercolor Wonder DSP #7); Scallop (Whisper White)
Embellishments - Festive Blooms (flower - Whisper White and Gumball Green); Ruffled Ribbon (Island Indigo); Grosgrain Ribbon (Lucky Limeade); Brads (Whisper White); Flower Brads (Whisper White)

Skunk Train - Part 2

 

Here's part 2 of our Skunk Train trip. WOW! What huge trees!  Now, for some of you who view my blog A LOT, you will notice that the first page is the same page I used in our 2015 calendar -- Just shrunk to fit 8.5x11 paper instead of 12x12.  I love that I can just insert from other projects in My Digital Studio.  Now, I did have to tweak a few things, as they transfer just slightly smaller or larger depending on the element. But, whew... it beats recreating the whole page! lol!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Background - Early Espresso Textured Cardstock
Embellishments - Timeless Taffeta Ruffled Ribbon (Crumb Cake)

Fabulous Borderettes

I really like the look of the Borderettes stamp set.  It is a bit tricky to get them straight on the clear block though.  The way that I got them straight was to place the edge of the plastic case on top of the clear block, then place the borderette stamp along the edge of the case.

I did use my Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure I got the rows exactly perfect on my card. (I will say, I tried to accomplish this without the stamp-a-ma-jig without good results! lol!)

I covered up the words on Fabulous Four set, so only 'Thanks' was inked -- and again with my Stamp-a-ma-jig -- I stamped onto the card above the borderette.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set - Fabulous Four, Borderettes
Ink - Strawberry Slush, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Memento Ink

Simple Border

Hi there! Working on a few Thank You cards today, and decided to use a few of the new stamp sets that I purchased along with some new washi tape too. I'm really liking the washi tape... why didn't I jump on this when they first came out?

I used the 'Sweet Dreams' washi tape -- not sure what colors are in the set, so I paired this particular tape closely with Bermuda Bay cardstock. Close enough! LOL!  Oh darn it... I just figured what the colors are with this set... this tape is Lost Lagoon! I'll remember for next time I use it! haha

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets - Simply Wonderful, Borderettes

Flower Greetings

I needed a card to go along with some curtains I made, but didn't have a generic "Hello" sentiment.  So, with the 'Good Greetings' stamp set... I used the 'Hello' from 'Hello Love' and the 'to you' from 'Boo to you'.  Clever huh?

I knew I wanted to use the Hello Honey cardstock with the honeycomb embossing, but wasn't to sure about the inside of the flower.  I had chosen a Coral at first, but that just didn't look right. I then tried Black Staz-on.  Perfect! I added Wild Wasabi for the leaves and it went smoothly after that!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets - Flower Patch, Good Greetings
Paper - Hello Honey, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, Whisper White

I'm working on our 2014 photobook with our trip to northern California with Mike's parents.  This happened in April 2014.  We had such a pleasant trip traveling up the coast and staying at the Beachcomber Hotel before going up the coast to see the Redwood trees (that will be my next several pages of our photobook, so stay tuned!).

More Birthday Kindness


I really love how this card evolved.  I wanted to use just the image (not the words) in the "Love is Kindness" stamp, so I masked the words before I ink it with Memento ink.

I was looking for a sentiment that would fit in the lower left (as the image was standing up at that point).  I finally realized that I could lay the image on it's side....thus giving me plenty of room for the sentiment (from the "And Many More" stamp set. Perfect!

I had first thought to dry emboss the white background, but figured that would be too plain.  So when I saw the dots in the "Endless Birthday Wishes" stamp set.... I said that would work better.

Voila! It's a beauty!
