It's Flutter By Wednesday Time!

Hiya, Kids!

Welcome to this week's Flutter By Wednesday Challenge!  Our task this week was to use any butterfly or fairy AND to decorate the inside of the card.  I, for one, am thankful for this challenge.  I find the insides of my cards horribly neglected.

I used Tiddly Inks' adorable new Flutter By to Say Hi digi.  Fitting, right?!  Basically, I've been waiting for an excuse to use this stamp.    =o D


The pattern papers are all from the DCVW Kids Paper Pack.  The intention was to follow the Operation Write Home Sunday Sketch, but I deviated too much.  So, I don't think it counts.

I colored the image using Copics.

Hair:  E11, E13, E15, E17, E19, R27
Skin: E00, E000, E11, R20
Clothes: B00, B02, G00, G02, E55, E57, E59
Wings/Butterflies: RV10, RV13, BV00, V12, G00, G02
Flowers: YR06, Y15, Y11, YG09, YG07

The embellishments are Recollections.

Now, to the inside of the card!

 The strip along the top is from the scrap bin, so I can't give you the manufacturer.

I colored the flowers using the same Copics listed above.  Both of these stamps are Unity Stamp Co and the sentiment is stamped in Stampin' Up!'s Garden Green.

Exciting, yes?  Time to get out your supplies and play along.  Can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Friendly Flutter By Challenge

Hiya, Everyone!

Welcome to this week's Flutter By Wednesday Challenge.  The theme is Friendship.  Check out the FBW Challenge blog for all of the details and to play along!

Our Friendship challenge is sponsered by (*insert introductory trumpets here*):

These digis are so stinkin' adorable!

I used Noel for our Friendship challenge:

Isn't she wonderful?  The card base is Papertrey Ink's Stampers Select white cardstock.  The polka dot pattern papers are from DCWV's Butterflies and Blossoms paper pack.  The blue flowers and plaid paper (one paper, two sides) is Stampin' Up!.

I cut out the butterfly using Papertrey Ink's Butterfly die and adhered Recollections pearls.  The flourish is from the Picturesque Cricut cartridge.


 The sentiment is from Impression Obsession. It's printed on Stampin' Up!'s confetti cardstock and cut out using Papertrey Ink's Half and Half die

I colored the beautiful Noel using Copics:
Clothes: B14, B12, W06, W04, W02, W01, W00, G82, G40, G24, BV01, BV000
Skin: E000, RV20, BV000, White Gel Pen.
Hair: E19, E17, E15, E13, E11
Eyes: G05, YG03, Y11
Sheet Music: C3, C2, C1

Alright, kids!  It's that time.  Get out your supplies and come play!

Welcome Back To The Flutter By Wednesday Challenge!

Hiya Everyone!

Welcome back to the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge.  Hopefully you made it over here from Michelle's blog, but if not, head on over to the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge blog to hop along from the beginning. Believe me, you don't want to miss anything!

First, I want to say how truly thrilled I am to be a member of this team. A *huge* thank you to Danni for choosing me to be a part of it.

To get things started, I wanted to take the opportunity to make a card for all of our friends that will be playing along with us. So, to all of our fluttery friends, WELCOME!  This one's for you!

The card base and white cutout are Papertrey Ink's Stampers Select White Cardstock. All of the pattern papers are from DCWV's Butterflies and Blossoms paper pack.

I used Some Odd Girl's Rainbow Fairy; I colored her using Copics:
Hair: Y28, Y26, Y18, Y15, Y11
Skin: E11, E00, E41, R83
Dress/Flower: R86, R83, R81, G05, G02, G00
Eyes: B02, B00
Rainbow: V17, V15, YR07, YR06, B14, B12
Wings: BV01, BV00 and ICICLE STICKLES!  

Who loves Stickles?  *points at myself*  This girl!

The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co's Art and Possibility set, and it is the most important part of this card.  "Why", you ask?  Because art isn't about being the best.  It's about having fun!

Now, don't get out your butterflies and fairies just yet.  Head on over to Jenée's blog to see what she has in store for you! 

Once you've had a chance to hop, get out the crafty stuffs and play long.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Lillybean! ...Again!

This time last year, I posted a Happy Birthday, Lillybean card.  I can't believe that Lillian's birthday is here again.  Time goes so fast!

My dear friends, Jay and Rachel, and the most adorable little girl.  She turned three a few days ago and her party is tomorrow.  Much like me, Rachel has a tendency to rock the alternative side.  I took the opportunity to use one of my favorite Tiddly Inks digis.  I don't get to use this stamp near as often as I would like!

Using Tiddly Ink's Pinkie, I'm here to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY LILLIAN!


The card base and white frame are, as always, Papertrey Ink.  The pattern papers are Signify Pink.

I colored her using Copics:
Hair: RV10, RV 13, C5, C7, C9, and C10
Skin: E11, E00, and E41
Dress: Y06, W6, W4, W2, and W1
Cake: RV14, RV13, C10, N4, N2, N1

The '3' is a chipboard cutout that I stained pink using Tim Holtz' Worn Lipstick distressing ink.  The butterfly is Flora Doodles.

I'm also submitting this card for the August SFYTT:

Seriously!  So excited to color this stamp!  I love Pinkie!

Thanks for looking!

Rizzobear is off to school!

I cannot believe my little Rizzobear is going to be four years old on August 30th.  Where did these four years go?!  Along with the excitement of her "Princess Hello Kitty My Little Pony Rapunzel" Birthday Party that I have the pleasure of planning (this is the last year that she gets to pick the theme!), she's super excited about starting big girl preschool on August 21st.

I really love the school district we're in.  Her preschool teacher asked to for an in-home meet and greet, where she got to meet Rizzo and overload me with paperwork.  #1 on the list is that she needs a folder.  The left side is for transporting important papers home, and the right side is for returning things to school.  I was going to go to the store and pick her up a generic Hello Kitty folder, but I couldn't dare send her off to school with a boring ol' Hello Kitty folder. 

I decided to do this instead:

She needed something personalized. I've cursed her, really...never will she walk into a souvenir shop and find a mug or key chain sporting her name.  So, I dusted off the Cricut and made some letters.

 Then I made her "home" and "school" sides.  For the "home" side, I used Some Odd Girl's Little Love Tia.

 For the "school" side, I used Some Odd Girl's Teacher's Pet Tia. 

After I got everything laid out, I put a layer of Mod Podge over the inside and out, to ensure nothing gets ripped.

Hopefully, she loves it!  My luck, she'll ask for a Hello Kitty folder.  =o D

Thanks for looking!
