December card club

Well I finally got everything I want planned cut and ready to go with two days to spare lol. I think I out did myself. The theme for the month is last minute gifts. Just small quick gifts that you could give in a pinch. First I planned a 3d ornament nothing fancy I just cut 6 ornament shapes at 2 1/4 inches off art philosophy 4 out of partridge and pear, 1 out of green and 1 out of red. You fold them all in half and glue. Next up was a simple candle that I stamped using Stazon ink. I then mod podged glitter around the bottom and tied a ribbon around it. Last but not least is a calendar using the stamp Of the month set year round cheer. The calendar was a great way to use up a lot of my scrap i have been collecting. All are fun easy projects that can be put together quickly.

1st semester almost down

As of this moment I have literately 2 classes left of my first semester of school. It's been a whirlwind I love it and hate it. And now that its finishing up I'm starting to come down with a cold blah! Oh well I will drink lots of tea. I have been able to make some cards for some special events the first is pretty exciting for me my brother and sister in law are expecting their first baby so I will be an auntie again. I made them a congrats card using a unity stamp set. The second card was for a 25 year anniversary. I'm also in the middle of making my christmas cards ill share those soon.

Polka a dot tea cards

I have been playing in my craft room all day. Trying to work myself out of a funk. I haven't liked most of what I have done today, but these two cards came out too cute. I used Kraft cardstock and embossed it using my new polka a dot embossing folder. Then the rest was history lol.

A cute and quick Christmas present

I picked up little notepads at the dollar tree the other day they were two for $1 so not bad. I already had an idea in my head for them. I want to alter them a little with CTMH paper and use my new monogram H that I got from ctmh. All I did was add a little paper to the top to cover the ugly pattern that was there, stamped the H in the corner of every sheet of lines paper and add a little bit of ribbon to the side for a pen holder. Depending on how much paper you use to cover the top you can get quite a few out of 1 sheet of 12x12. I used 2.25x5 inches to be honest 2x5 inches would have probably been plenty. But using the size I did I got 12 out of 1 piece of paper I had to use the decorative strip (the extra quarter inch on our papers with pretty designs on one side and the paper info on the other). I think it came out pretty cute.

Cross stitch looms

I have had this collection of cross stitch looms forever and I have wanted to do something with them. They have been hanging on the wall for at least a year just blank nothing in them. About a week ago a friend gave me a dcwv stack that inspired me to finally do something with them the colors in the stack were perfect and went well with my room, so I started cutting the designs to fit the looms and there was a sheet of tags you could cut out and use as embellishment. I decided to use my favorite Tim holtz quote stamps and stamped a different one on each tag then I started to pull this from my stash. Bits of findings and jewelry reused, some very old scrapbook embellishments I have saved for a special project. Over all them came out pretty cool. It was the perfect distraction from hurricane sandy and my head feeling like its going to explode and my runny nose that sandy has caused. Tomorrow I'm back to getting homework done. And at the moment time for sleep.

A quick and easy Halloween treat

So I got called into a class for today. I have been in a few times and I have really enjoyed the students and I had bought some Halloween pencils at Walmart the other day for my teacher bag. So this morning I got an idea to make little tags to put on the pencils to say they were from me. I took a dcwv mat stack I bought a couple months ago which is 6.5 x 4.5 and I cut it into three somewhat equal sections which works out to be a little over 2 inches x 4.5. I cut orange paper to fit on top of the pattern which is a little over 1.75x 4. I stamped this cute pumpkin and "boo to you" on the orange in black ink. Glued the orange paper to the patten and punched to circles on the side for the pencil to slide through. I was able to finish 24 of them in maybe 15-20 minutes. I left them for the classroom teacher to pass out. And it cost only like $2 for the pencils everything else was in my stash!

Steam punk girl stamp

Michael's had this stamp for sale with their Halloween stuff this season. As soon as I saw her I fell in love and figured she wasn't overly Halloween-y. I kept putting off buying her because I don't buy as many stamps (especially wood mount one) that are not ctmh. But after looking at her for a few visit I made the purchase. So far I have used her on two different cards one a general themed card (using dcwv tattered times stack) the other more Halloween themed (using ctmh moonlight paper pack). She is just fun to color.

Breat cancer/support our troops cards

I bought this awesome ribbon stamp this summer from Unity stamp company. I have been wanting to use it since, but other new supplies came in and other must do projects had to be done. I no longer have a list as far the craft room goes. Of course school comes first, but I got my homework done before I played. I came up with these cute cards the breast cancer cards I cut a pattern paper with big swirls to size. Then I covered it in adhesive and ribbon. The first one I just used random pink ribbons. The second one I just used sheer ribbons which allows you to see the swirls on the paper behind the ribbon.

The yellow ribbon card I simply stamp the ribbon cut it out and mounted it on red cardstock and cut around it leaving a thin rim of red around the image. I put in on a mostly yellow pattern paper which was also mounted on red. I stamped thank you on a scrap of the yellow pattern (which I also mounted on red) I added a little bling on the ribbon. It great for a female service woman just to tell her thank you! (The ribbon has a flower pattern to it.)

Altered witch hat work in progress

So at our last art gathering we were each given a witch hat to alter mine has been sitting around neglected ever since. Today I got my homework caught up for the week and a good chunk of boxes cut for my friend Deb's wedding in a few weeks, so I treated myself to a little while of play. So far this is simply what I have done. I started with a base coat of copper paint then I sprayed with slate glimmer mist. I painted the brim copper then black and painted bubble wrap with copper paint. I decided to add seam binding (which is not permeant yet and I added a bling bat. It needs some more work but I haven't figured out what it needs yet and I'm really not sure when I can play again. I'm swamped with work and homework lately. My life consist of work, class, homework, eat sleep start all over again. Speaking of sleep that what about to do. Till next time.
