Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #11

Retirement Update #104:  “Where has the time flown!?”  Seriously, I’m enjoying this thing called retirement.  So much so that I’m ear deep in custom orders (I’d say knee-deep, but I’m height challenged and it wouldn’t be a lot).  It’s evident I’m so busy that I haven’t had time to stop by and tell you what I’m up to.  But you will find out in due time, where I’m headed (lol).  Until then, let’s continue with today’s card and challenge.

SIP#11My buddy’s down at the Stamp Ink Paper Crew really did a super challenge for us this week.  I can’t believe that I’m really diggin’ this challenge.  It gave me a choice to choose all the three things that I so dearly enjoy….birthdays, die cuts, and especially my all time favorite—a butterfly!  I’ve shown you mine now show me yours at Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #11.

MAGGIE MADE TIPS:

  • Clean and Simple.  When you’re short on time and you want to throw a really sweet awesome card for a birthday you may have forgotten turn to clean and simple.  A quick frame and large sentiment will fill up the card and hey, it’s a card worth framing (ha!).

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #10

Condolence

What’s my card style?  A question I’ve asked myself hundreds of times, if not thousands…LoL.  I often wish I had a style, but I just simple do not.  I mean, I’ve convinced myself that I had a style, clean and simple, but I just do not have one.  Well, until I asked my friend Pam.  I write about it below…go on see if you agree with her, pretty please. 

SIP 10

Tell me, what does this photo inspire you to do?  Wait, no, don’t tell me, show me!  So, take a look at the photo and create a card of the first thing that popped into your mind.  I can’t wait to see it at Stamp Ink Paper.

What’s My Style?  Whether you think you have one or not, you do.  I’ve answered that question several times (to myself) and I don’t think I was listening…LOL.  I’m indecisive and I should’ve asked someone else before believing myself (HA!).  Note to self: Never believe your own answers.  So, I asked my friend Pam. Her response, “You’re eclectic, just like your house.” She added, “everything goes together, but it’s all different.”  True words spoken, I do a little bit of everything.

MAGGIE MADE TIPS:

  • Windo Frame.  Are they really the direct link to our soul?  Stampin’ Up! must’ve been hearing our words…we want windows. So, in the Holiday catalog they’ll give us Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies and I assure you, you are going to love them!
  • Window Image.  I sponged a piece of the new upcoming Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack with Pacific Point ink and then stamped a window sheet with the Thoughts & Prayers tree stamp (just the leaves) and layered the window sheet on top of the vellum stamped side down (to prevent smudging).  The glare in the photo is from my window, I didn’t make any magic, except the card…LOL>
  • Flower Pots.  I’ve got a tiny trick up my sleeve and found the tiny flower-pot here.  I downloaded it, resized it about three times before I cut out a template.  I used Cajun Craze card-stock to cut out the little flower-pot. Cute right?

Back to School with PPA 263

High Five

Summer isn’t over yet, but for many kids across the country they returned to school this week and many more start the new school year on Monday.  While thinking about today’s card I was reminded of Pink Floyd’s, Another Brick In The Wall song…LOL.  I can’t say I agree with the lyrics, but way back in my younger years, you know I used to sing this song a whole lot.

PPA263

 This week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge is very fascinating and leads to tons of thoughtful ways to come up with something with these colors.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
