The Cuttlebug Challenge July 27, 2009

This weeks challenge was to show the inside of our cards. I have sometimes neglected the insides, but it is starting to become trendy to decorate the insides. I make alot of cards for work so everyone signs the card and makes remarks so I really can't decorate the insides like the outside.

This card was actually the inside of a card I did for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Friday Challenge. Yahoo for working smarter this weekend. We have been having very warm temperatures so I can't be in the studio for long periods of time without breaking a sweat. The outside is actually cooler than out!

Thanks for looking.

TECC75 Challenge

This is the newest challenge from the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Friday Challenge. Good thing you don't have to use cupcakes cause I think shoes are just as yummy as cupcakes.

I paper pieced the stamped image, which I can't remember the maker of. I used DCWV cardstock and paper from Provocraft made for the Cricut. The ribbon was a gift and I don't know who it is by.

Anyway, I hope you like it.

The Cuttlebug Favorite Technique Challenge

Welcome to The Cuttlebug Spot Blog Hop! Our blog hop is sponsored by Kathe from Katz Designs.

Now hop on over to Marcelle at Stamping Thyme!

This week the challenge for the design team was to pick a technique previously done. I choose the double embossing for two reasons. First, I wasn't on the design team when previously done and second I really think it is neat. Please click here for Nilda's video. This video was great and I stopped and started it for each step. It was very helpful.

I stamped my Sweet Nellie image with Memento Tuxedo ink and colored her with my Copic Markers. I used the Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment. The papers used are unknown since I received these at a SWARM.

I am sorry that you really can't see the embossing, I am no photograhper LOL! You get the idea.

Mojo Monday Challenge

This is the first time I have participated in this challenge. You can see the fabulous cards here at Mojo Monday Blog.

I stamped this cute High Hopes little girl with Memento Tuexedo Black Ink. I colored her with my Copic markers.

I wonder where she got her watermelon because I cannot pick a good one. I have tried all of the tips and tricks and still find it's a crap shoot.

Cuttlebug Spot Challenge

Our challenge this week is to make a bag or box. This fit so easily on what I was doing for Easter. This bag is a template from Scor-Pal called the 2-4-6-8. It is so super easy and the results are great. I filled the box with the mini bags of jelly beans the tag reads:

The Jelly Bean Prayer

Red is for the Blood He Gave
Green is for the grass He made
Yellow is for the sun so bright
Orange is for the edge of night
Black is for the sins we made
Purple is for His hour of sorrow
Pink is for our new tomorrow

A bag of jelly beans colorful and sweet,
Is a prayer,
Is a promise,
Is a special treat

May the joy of Christ’s Resurrection fill your
Heart and bless your life

Hope your Birthday Rocks

This was a gift ensemble that I did for a guy at work. He always comes into my office for mints, so I recycled this Chinese take out box and filled it with mints. I used this guitar stamp form Safire Designs. The sentiment stamp is one from a birthday kit from Michaels. The paper is DCVW Glitter Stack. Ribbon is from the Fabric Barn in Long Beach.

Here are the close-ups.

Serendipty Challenge

Here is my entry for the Cuttlebug Spot Serendipty Challenge.

I stamped this High Hopes tea girl and colored her with my Copics. I used the airbrush system around the image and the green parts of the card. I did choose to be organized with the random patterned paper rather than tearing bits of paper.

Buttons Challenge for TCS

This card is for this weeks Cuttlebug Spot Challenge.

I used this darling image from Sweet Nellie Stamps. I colored the image with my Copic markers and of course used 2 different Cuttlebug folders. The buttons are vintage from my mom's button stash. She had so many buttons so I will need to try to use buttons on all of my cards. The paper is from DCWV and the polka dot ribboon is from Michaels.

In Honor of my Mom

My mother passed away the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday has a new meaning to me now. My mom was diagosed with renal cancer in March 2008 and had surgery to remove her kidney, spleen and part of her pancreas. After undergoing surgery she went thru radiation and chemotherapy. September 2008 she had a follow-up and was then told the cancer spread to her liver and lungs. She was admitted to undergo a drastic form of treatment called IL2. This treatment required her to be hospitalized for this type of chemo. She then went into a coma and we were called since my brothers and I live in other states. She did come out of the coma and was sent home with hospice. Well her battle ended on November 28, 2008.

Above is the card that I made that I sent to everyone that showered my family and I with gifts of love, time, and money. This card was inspired from one of my favorite blogs Amazing Paper Grace.

Great News!!!

I have been selected to be a member of the Cuttlebugspot Design Team! This is my first design team and I can't wait for all the challenges. Here is my entry that was submitted for the design team try-outs!
