Bella and Friends Skittles Card

 Bella and Friends Skittles Card

Bella-and-Friends-Skittles-b

I have a super simple card for you today and I’m using the Skittles image from the Bella & Friends Stamp Set.

bella stamp set

To be honest I made this card using some scraps left on my desk …. The thick Whisper White card front measures 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 (8-1/2 x 4-1/4, scored @ 4-1/4).  The Old Olive Designer Series Paper is from the Brights Collection and it measures 2 x 4 (it was laying on my desk left over from making Bella cards last week).

Skittles was stamped with Black Stazon ink and cut out with the 1-3/4 Circle Punch.  I colored her with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  And then added it to the 2″ Circle with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

The Real Red Strip measures 4 x 1/2″ and the greeting (“I Love You”) is from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set.

Stampin’ Up! Supplies:

Skittles stays with me on Tuesdays and Wednesdays because Chase has work and school on those days/nights and that would be too long for her to be in his apartment alone.    And on my watch last week we had a scare.  I let her stay on top of the cage all day … and she LOVES to pick up her swing and toss it … but  ….. last week when she tossed it … she went with it.  I knew she was hurt but Chase thought she was fine … until Friday came along.  So …. Chase, Brooke and I took her to the vet.  She’s okay … just a bruise …. thank goodness!  And, I’ve taken away the swing until we can find a way to bolt it down.    This explains where I was on Friday when I should have been working … sorry about that!  (I was also at the eye doctor at 8am getting the darn stye lanced … sadly I need to have it done again ….. grrrrr!) 

Back to Skittles … here’s a picture of her today.

Thank You Note Cards

Thank You Note Cards

 Thankyounotecardsb

My project for you today is some Note Cards … I’m not sure about you but I am always needing thank you cards!!

And …. I always have left over strips of Designer Series Paper … so these cards uses your left over strips that measure 1″ (cut to 1 x 4-1/4). 

I used the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set with Memento Ink and I used three punches … the 1-3/4 Circle Punch, 2″ Circle Punch and the Blossom Bunch Punch.   You could make them in any color and they would look good!

In my video I mentioned that I had made these type of cards before … click here to see one example … Monogram Note Cards …. made many years ago (2010).

Paper and Ink Sketches 2

 Paper & Ink Sketches 2

PaperandInkSketches2b

Here’s the card I created using Sketch #2 with the Better Together Stamp Set and the Neutrals Pack of Designer Series Paper.

I used the Smoky Slate DSP and I made one small change to the Sketch with measurements … I changed the Designer Series Paper to measure 2 x 5-1/4.

I stamped the image with Black Stazon ink and then cut it out with the Layering Ovals Framelits.

Pokemon Go Ball

How to make a Pokemon Go Ball

Pokemongoballb

My project today is how to make the Pokemon Go Ball and a Pokemon Explosion Box.

If you have grandchildren or children that are playing … I bet they would love to receive a handmade card or an explosion box … or better yet a battery charger to charge their device. I have a box later this week that will hold one of those.  

PokemonBallCard

To create the Pokemon Ball  you have two choices … 2-1/2 Circle Punch  that is retired or you can use the Layering Circles Framelit.  I have a smaller version too 🙂

You need Real Red Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock and Basic Black Card Stock.

The punches include:  

  • 1-1/4 Circle
  • 1″ Circle Punch
  • 3/4″ Circle Punch
  • 1/2″ Circle Punch
  • 2-1/2 Circle Punch (Retired)
  • or Laying Circles Framelits

Pokemon-Ball-Explosion-Box

Pokemon Go has taken over our streets and neighborhoods and over the weekend I personally encounter lots of people wanting to talk about the game. Since I too am playing (in my spare time) I was happy to chat with them.  Dave and I went to our park Saturday night because I needed more Poke balls and on the path everyone we encountered not only were playing but also ask if we were playing.  Two weeks ago they may have just said hello (or nothing at all) now they are engaging.

Paper Pumpkin and Sketches

Bella-and-Sketch-1

This card was designed with our Paper & Sketches #1 in mind.  Although the sketch had the Designer Series Paper on the top and the accent on the left …  I just turned it upside down and switched things around … cute isn’t it?

I used the Playful Palette DSP Stack with the Bella and Friends Stamp Set and the color is Sweet Sugarplum.  

Our next Sketch will be released on July 20th and if you’re a member of my downline (Chics Paper Ink) you’ll receive the sketch on the 15th.

Pokemon  Go

I’m sorry I didn’t post yesterday!  I had plans to post at least three or four times this week and a crazy headache had me on the sofa most of the day (sadly I still have it … pretty sure it’s this crazy weather).  BUT …  one positive from being on the couch was a snagged a Venonat while playing Pokemon Go and advanced to Level 5 (if you use incense in the game you can bring the Pokemon to you verses you going out and finding them). Chase and Brooke have always been Pokemon fans and I’m playing along with them …  just to have fun.

Personal stuff

Laura and I are both back from vacation and we’ll do our very best to get caught up on everything in the next couple days.  I was able to stay on top of email … but I’m behind on pretty much everything else.   Not only was last week our family vacation but also Chase and Skittles moved out.  As you can imagine I’ve cried every single day (multiple times) but I’m very proud of Chase and I’m happy for him (even though my heart is broken)!!
