Challenge 178 Add an Insect!


Happy Friday to everyone!  I hope you're enjoying the dreadful heat and humidity!  At least, that's what the weather here in Northern Virginia is.  That's ok...perfect reason to stay inside where there's AC and CRAFT!

So today's share is for this week's LNS Challenge.  We have a great challenge this week to welcome in Summer.  We all know that Summer means more insects-bees, ants, ladybugs, etc.  So in honor of Summer having begun on Wednesday, we will be celebrating insects!

Challenge 178
Add an insect
This week you must have an insect on your card, scrapbook page, project or any thing else you can think of to papercraft.

As has been very popular this week, I too used the butterfly as my insect.  I've always kept a good distance from anything that crawls, buzzes, or scurries, so...I went with the "girly" insect...

I CASEd this card from Stampin' Connection, but can't remember whose work it was, so if you can identify it, please, let me know so I can give credit where it's due!

Need some inspiration?  Check out the design team creations HERE    

When you get your creation made you can upload it HERE    

Can't wait to see what insects you include in your projects!

Thanks for looking!

Ink:  Early Espresso
Accessories:  Daffodil Delight 1/4" stitched grosgrain ribbon, Pool Party, Gumball Green, and Raspberry Ripple Stampin' Write Markers, Mat Pack, Decorative Label Punch, Basic Jewels Rhinestones

So, here's the Mojo Monday Sketch:

And here's my card:

VC Rocks Blog Hop and BLOG CANDY!

Hello crafty hoppers!

Are you enjoying the hop so far?  I hope so...there's a lot of fabulously creative ladies in this group, and I love a reason to visit each of their blogs all in the same day.  My "ideas" folder is overflowing!  If you arrived here from an email, and not from the blog hop path, you're probably wondering what I'm talking about.  This weekend is the first Blog Hop for the VC Rocks group's 2012 Season.  This is an amazing group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who get together online and host all sorts of challenges, blog hops, and lively conversations in an effort to celebrate the release of the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.  It's really alot of fun to see what the ladies have to post, so please, check out the hop.

To start from the beginning, click HERE to go to the VC Rocks group homepage.  
Or you can just continue from me, and it will eventually loop you back around. we go!
Today's share is a set of coasters I made using the Beau Chateau DSP, which of course will be retiring in just 13 short days.  This was one of my favorite paper packs of this year's catalog, and I will be sad to see it go.

To turn these tiles into coasters, I used a Mod Podge-like glue to adhere the DSP to the top of the coaster.  Then I applied 3 more thin coats of the glue on top of the paper, drying in between each coat with my heat tool.  This not only adheres the paper to the coaster and gives it a glossy look, but it waterproofs it from my sweaty ice-cold sweet tea glass!  To give the coasters a more finished look, I used my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker to color the edges of the coasters so they wouldn't be such a stark white.  Finally, I applied cork feet to the bottom to make them more stable, and more end-table friendly.

I hope you like today's project...and at the end of the weekend, I will draw a name from all of my current subscribers/follwers, and the lucky winner will receive a set of these coasters and a few other goodies as blog candy!  So, if you like what you see, please be sure to sign up as a follower! you go to see what Tania has in store for you over at Something to Scrap About.

Click HERE to go to the next stop-and Happy Hopping!

Supplies Used:

Beau Chateau DSP
Mod Podge Glossy Decoupage Liquid
Stampin' Write Marker (Crumb Cake)
Cork "feet"

Going, Going... GONE!

Every year, Stampin' Up! releases a list of stamp sets and accessories that will retire to make room for all the new goodies coming. This year, the only difference is, the list is longer than usual.

Simply Soft Sympathy

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been away for a bit, but several of my kiddos have been sick, and I've been super involved in a project at the Middle School here in town where two of my girls attend.
Today's share is in participation of the PPA 129 Challenge. You'll remember that PPA has decided to alternate between a color challenge and a sketch challenge, and only do a challenge every OTHER this week's challenge was a sketch.

Here's the sketch:

I always take a few liberties with the sketch...turning it, or using a different shape, but I rarely will completely delete an element like I did today. I tried and tried and no matter what I created with that scalloped area, I didn't like, I skipped it. I did add that Lucky Limeade DSP layer in there where the scallop should be, so didn't skip the layer, just didn't scallop it. Also, layer 3 is actually UNDERNEATH as the ribbon. Soo...let me know what you think, and Thanks for Stopping By!

Stamps: Simply Soft (Hostess)
Ink: Lucky Limeade
Cardstock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Texture Folder, Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon, 2012-2013 In Color DSP Pack, Melon Mambo and Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write Markers, Basic Pearls, Glue Dots, Dimensionals

Sheet Metal Magnets-Craft Show Creations

Hello! Today's share is not a card, but a bunch of 3D items I created this evening to sell at an upcoming craft show and scrapbooking crop! They are all magnets made from sheet metal. For the sheet metal, you can either use flashing (found in the roofing aisle of your local home improvement store), or you can actually cut apart soda cans and use them. Soda cans give you a nice variety of colored metal to work with keep that in mind if you're looking for colorful. I used glue dots and Stampin Dimensionals in a lot of places, but I definitely recommend attaching your magnet to the back with hot glue. I like to use the thick, nickel-sized magnets because they have a good strong hold. Another option is to die cut Stampin' Up! magnet sheets into the shape of your bottom layer, and adhere it to the back. Then the whole backside would be magnetic. I suppose it just depends on personal preference and what you plan to use them for. Another tip: Use the Crop-A-Dile to punch the whole through all the layers at once if you plan to insert brads. The paper piercer is just not tough enough to poke holes in sheet metal! I hope you like my project, and thanks for looking!

Stamps: Filled with Love
Ink: Pear Pizzazz and Real Red (markers)
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz,Whisper White,Poppy Parade,Island Indigo,Pacific Point, Concord Crush
Accessories: Flashing Sheets, Round Magnets, Hot Glue Gun, Big Shot, Rectangle Clearlit, Blossom Party Die, Beautiful Butterflies Die, Glimmer Brads, Crop-A-Dile, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals

Mojo Monday #226

Hey everyone!
It's Monday, so that means another Mojo Monday sketch for ya...

I really liked this one as it gave us the choice to go round or square. I ended up going square, but my twist was that the main image area on the front is actually cut OUT of the front of the card window-style, instead of being another set of layers ON TOP of the front of the card. I tried to give it just a little bit of bling with a glimmer brad and some smooch spritz, but didn't realize that my smooch spritz was close enough to empty that it made big splatters on my card...sooooo...I'm sorry about that!

I hope you like my card, and thanks for looking!
Here's the sketch:

And here's what I did with it:
Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Happy Greetings
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Blushing Bride
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Accessories: Twitterpated DSP, Basic Gray Satin Ribbon, Blossom Punch, Glimmer Brad Subtles, White Bakers Twine, Big Shot, Framelits, Smooch Spritz Vanilla, Color Spritzer, Basic Gray Marker, Crumb Cake Marker

    Faux Quilt

    So today's share came from a challenge I saw somewhere last week to use a Technique that I don't use very often. Well, this faux quilt is a technique I learned at a swap I crashed at Convention this year. It is the quickest, easiest thing EVER...and looks so cool! Don't you think? I also used one of my favorite stamps for the sentiment.
