You stole my heart...

For the Grandsons' Valentines - I did a quick and easy version... a Mo Manning image that only required Copic coloring for the skin and the heart.  A Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper gave me the 1/2 inch corners for the focal panel and the mat.  Done and done!  The computer generated sentiment was cut down, matted on black and adhered even with the left margin.  A grosgrain black ribbon is the only embellishment... CAS and fast for the boys.

Create wildly and color with abandon!

One in a Chameleon...

This image was a freebie called 'One in a Chameleon' by Lawn Fawn that came with my mail order.  I felt the sentiment that came with it is perfect for my Grand-daughter's Valentine.  My 14 y.o. neighbor, Gena, made the great background after a lesson on using a straw to blow alcohol inks on glossy paper.   The background became the inspiration for the card.  It reminded me of a beam of sunlight peeking thru the clouds - perfect for a Chameleon warming itself on a stump. The little stamp set has only the one limb on which he is standing - I drew the rest of the tree stump attached to it.  The Copic colors for my lizard were matched to the background, it was fussy cut and glued down so he was in the full sun.  The panel adheres to the white card base which had been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The diagonal lines mimic the sunbeam lines in the sky.  A tiny 'diamond' was centered in his eye.
The sentiment was mounted on 
a slender strip of the background 
cut off the front panel.

 I had already started a personal note 
before I took the photo - so I 
cropped out my message.

Non-traditional Valentine colors...


613 Ave C has a new challenge... "ATG/ optional Twist: Love".  You have the month of February to show your creative talents!  For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas - check out the DT inspiration concepts HERE!

I like to see this image as a Hawk and a Snowy Owl... thus the coloring choices.  Coloring with Copics, I added mountains and craters using a blender pen and a darker YR on the moon.  A blue transparent ribbon was added over the vertical strip of DP and then I sewed it on with brown waxed linen from my bookbinding supplies.  The image and all the papers were rescued from the pile on my desk... you know "the one where things are shoved to the back to make room for each new project for months till it is way too cumbersome to deal with and must be dealt with" pile.  Long story shorter - I have no source for either.

Love is in the AIR!




Pulled this card out of my 'Post' file... so many cards in there ready to go, but other priorities I guess. When I ran across this freebie image by Elizabeth Dulemba, it made me laugh and I just knew I wanted to color it up with Copics for a quickie card. A second print allowed me to fussy cut and layer the pool toy - creating the depth.  Glossy Accents over the spots really enhanced the 'made of plastic' look for the floating toy and die cut clouds on foam tape added to the dimension.   Copic colors I chose were pulled from the background paper - a scrap from the Blue/Green drawer.






Which leads me to this digression:
One of my organization tools that I find really helpful is this small [approx 18" x 7"] plastic set of drawers labeled with five color groups [Metallics, Reds/Purples, Yellows/Browns, Blues/Greens & Whites/Blacks].  It sits on the back of my desk and when I clean my desk off, [which occurs when the available workspace is reduced to a 6"x 6" space], then it is easy to separate all the papers into the five groups and into the corresponding drawers.  When the drawers get full, I go thru and weed out the sizes or colors that I would least likely use.  This builds in an automatic limit on my scraps collection - definitely a welcome plus for an out of control paper hoarder.


When I need an accent color, a colored mat or need to stamp a sentiment, these are at my fingertips.

Gena as Dog sitter...


My 13 y.o. neighbor girl  watched our house and our dogs this last summer... Her first paid job!  She loves our dogs and is wonderful with them!  I am just getting around to posting the thank you card I made for her.  She likes to wear mismatched socks and a grey hoodie which is pretty much her uniform of the day.  My hubby calls her the Princess Sparkly Unicorn - she LOVES glitter.  We paid her - but the best part for her was getting free reign in my RubberRoom!  I thought this Mo Manning image was soooo appropriate!
I colored her with Copics, added 'buttons' to the image panel and mounted it on Desert Storm Neenah CS.  Corners were rounded with a Making Memories "Corner Chomper" - one of the top ten most used tools in my studio.

Something New...

613 Ave C has a new challenge... "ATG/ optional Twist: Something New".  You have the month of January to show your creative talents!  For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas - check out the DT inspiration concepts HERE!

I enjoy these really unique dies from The Stamp Doctor - this one is "Snowflake Pop-a-Top."  It is placed across the midline of the front of a top fold card and it will cut the snowflake shape out of the card and create a new fold line across to each side.  

Below is a pic of the front of the card folded flat with the pop-up snowflake fitting back into the card stock.  
You can't even see the cut line in this photo - but as you fold at the crease, the snowflake pops up leaving the negative hole in the front of the card. 












  

This photo on the right actually does show the negative of the die, but without the right contrast my eye only sees the white as a second snowflake on the front of the card... that's weird when you know what it is and your brain still can't see it!
This photo lets you see it is an easel card.
The paper is from Holiday Cheer by Traci Smith.  It is double sided 6 x 6" pack by Photoplay Paper.  I die cut a second copy of the snowflake out of that DP to make the pop-out show up against the dark background of the base card and then Wink of Stella was applied to all of the Pop-up.  The DP was also used for the front and inside panels with a hand doodled border created on both.  A white pen created the lace for her petticoat.
Copics were used on the Mo Manning image to match the DP and Diamond Glaze was applied to her eyes and buttons on her coat.
The sentiment is a 2004 stamp from River City Rubber Works.  And finally, the small white snowflakes were punched with a Martha punch.

Santa's Little Helper...

Santa's Little Helper
                                                                    

This is one of my favorite Christmas cards so far.  The image is fun to color and is capable of standing alone with minimal embellishment.  Definitely a plus for me.

It's a Mo Manning image - printed out three times.  The first is the base panel, the 2nd and 3rd are used to create the added layers to the image with paper sculpting.  You are able to see more of the depth in the photo below.  I colored with Copics and used Diamond Glaze on the tape dispenser to create the shine.  The elevation of all the parts is achieved with foam tape.  The panels, inside and out, were pierced around the edges to create faux stitching.      


INSIDE
The sentiment on the inside is a very old rubber stamp by Rubber Stamp Ave.

Let the Bells Ring...





613 Ave C has a new challenge... "ATG: optional Winter/Holidays".  You have the month of December to show your creative talents!  For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas - check out the DT inspiration concepts HERE!


















This image and the sentiment are both from AI, Art Impressions [Bells Ring Set #4682],  it comes with the three unmounted rubber stamps, a die cut and one Action Wobble. 

  • Used a Sizzix embossing folder for the cover 
  • Colored the image with Copics and used white gel pen to add dots on the scarf & gloves  
  • Die cut out the extra 'bootie' to mount on the Action Wobble spring
  • Gold Wink of Stella used on the bells for sparkle
  • A 1/8th inch hole was punched to insert the ribbon on the left front panel - it was brought around the edge and tied in a bow
  • Used SU! punches for the sentiment and it's mat - this was layered over the ribbon hole to hide it

As you can see the you can shake his rear and make the bells 'ring'!  Amuses me - LOL!  If I can find really tiny bells I would love to glue them on.


  • Inside has been embossed with a Cuttlebug E-folder that leaves a space for a personalized message 
  • The sentiment from a 1994 Annette Allen Watkins rubber stamp has been die cut and elevated on foam tape

One exhausted Fairy...


When I saw this image I was sooo excited to color him using my Copics - very soothing for my harried soul!  Amazing how your mind goes lazer focused and all else fades into oblivian.
Then I finish the card and lo and behold, the christmas decorations are still not up, don't have my presents purchased yet, and my husband's birthday is next week... heavy sigh.  Think my priorities are messed up??  Ya think??












Back to the card... don't wanna think about the other...

  • I matched the blues in the image to the base card and then added in the traditional reds and greens.
  • Mounted panel on a 1/4" black mat.
  • Sprinkled on the ultra thick white EP and heated it from the bottom to create a little snow.
  • Fussy cut the bottom of the wings, candy cane and his foot so they would hang off the edge.  
  • Used a Corner Chomper to round three of the corners.  
  • Added a very sparkly blue fuzzy ribbon and layered the matted panel over the top.






I also did this version that has been covered with a dryer sheet and fine glitter. Way too much glitter layered on and the image is lost in it - wasn't happy with it at all!

Kit xChange to the rescue...

I have been stamping for 40 years and I have a 'RubberRoom' that is about 100 sq. feet [10' x 10'] - you can understand that I am constantly looking for ways to organize and utilize every square inch!
These are three ways I have tried to organize my thin Die Cuts... [left to right] a binder with magnetic sheets, a wire desk organizer and a box with magnetic sheets layered in it.
 OLD SYSTEM
This is a close up of the wire basket... you can see it is a pain in the wazoo
 to find the die I want - or just to look thru them for an idea!
So here is the deal... there was a Scrapbooking Convention in Sacramento recently and at the Kit xChange booth I spotted the word "Organization" and stopped to talk to the very personable owner and designer, Alicia Klein. Her idea and product arose from a need to organize her jewelry, but the product has sooo many other possibilities!  As we exchanged ideas and I told her of my need to organize dies, Alicia graciously offered to set me up with a system to review.  
It has taken a while to start the organizational process - but I finally have some pictures to share with you:


Kit xChange System

 









This is what I came home with - a binder, three 'pages' of felt covered boards and two packages each of a set of medium and a set of large specially made bags - all designed by Alicia.  

Small bags
These bags have a zip seal to secure even tiny beads and Velcro melded into the tops that will adhere to the pages or the inside cover of the binder.  As you can see on the right, the bags will layer nicely, one right after another.  
I cut out the picture of the dies and the manufacturer from the original packaging to file with the die.  TIP: I could usually get two dies in each bag so that as you lift each bag you see the picture of the other die in the bag [pictured - two different 'Happy Birthday' dies in the same bag].
My system will be to label each row with subject matter: 'Sentiments', 'Shapes', 'Flora', 'Fauna', etc.



Large bags


I even started a row of rubber stamps and their coordinating dies.  The large bags were big enough to hold either sets of acrylic or fairly large red rubber stamps as in the cup cake seen on the right.


Add caption

And...
If the binder doesn't work for you for reasons of space availability... you can take the individual pages out and attach them to a hanger or rod.  You have the front and back of the hanging boards to use and the hanger can be hung on a wall, in a closet or even over a door [my choice]!  

My opinion?  This system will work nicely for my smaller die cuts.  I am able to organize so many on this hanging board system and as you can see it takes up so very little room!  Also, it certainly appears that the hanging boards are strong enough to accommodate the weight of front and back covered with dies - and even to add another two pages hanging off the bottom!  
My only suggestion is that larger bags would be very useful.  My plan instead will be to use magnetic pages in the binder to store the larger [thin] dies.  

 I encourage you to go to the Kit xChange web site ASAP because there is a

Fall Apples in 3D...


Featuring another Mo Manning image called "Apple"... this card utilizes 3D paper sculpting to allow the image to pop off the page and give it depth.  The 2nd layers here are her head & hair, both forearms holding the apple, the cuff on her jeans, the apples on the ladder and, of course, the basket full of apples.

  • image was printed out two times on Neenah CS 
  • colored them with Copics
  • fussy cut & sculpted individual sections to be elevated
  • the edges around each cut piece are all individually colored with the darkest Copic color being used for that section of the piece.  
  • mounted sections from 2nd sheet using foam tape
  • the image panel and mat were die cut using Lil Inkers stitched circle dies  
  • the mat circle was embossed with an E-folder to provide a little texture  
  • a slot punch was used to punch two holes in the front of the base card [2nd hole is under the little bow]
  • ribbon matching the apple colors was run thru the slots, gathered & tied with matching cord that is tied in a small bow 
  • two corners of the base card are punched with a 1/2 in. Corner Chomper 


A little easier to see the depth with these two photos.
The inside has two stitched ovals by Lil Inkers stamped with the sentiment by Country Impressions.

Halloween 5/5 Boo-Frickity-Hoo!

Saved my favorite for last!  Another Mo Manning -  and my favorite of her Halloween images.  The base card is a dark purple and has been embossed with a cobweb folder by Cuttlebug - can barely see it - but it is there!  Colored with Copics & Prismacolor Pencils, mounted over a ribbon & called it done - clean and simple!  I think I spend so much time coloring that I don't have the patience for fiddling - not to mention how many I made all together!
Inside sports some leftover DP and my all time favorite Halloween sentiment - 'Boo-Frickity-Hoo'!

Halloween 4/5

Gena, my 'liddle' [she is actually MUCH taller than I am] pal from down the street and I were playing with bleach one day and we used some bleach on black CS.  The Skull and candle [Rubberstamp Ave.] were first heat embossed with black and we used white EP for the Halloween stamp [Craftsmart/Michaels].  There is another stamp of a candle in a candlestick on the far right under the ribbon - but I can't read the name on it.  Won't matter since you can't see it anyway.  I really like how the card looks in natural light - the contrast is more apparent and the images show up nicely.  I made two tags, one white & a slightly larger black one and stamped the 'boo!' using a set by All Night Media.  The font is 'Jazz'.  It is topped off with a snippet of ribbon with orange and black flowers and tied with black waxed linen in a bow.  Tags were mounted on foam tape for elevation.
All the papers used are leftover from previous projects including the base card which is an off cut.



I already wrote a personal message - so won't show the inside - I just know you are straining your eyes trying to read that!

Halloween 3/5


This Oddball Art image of a child Zombie is probably the ooogiest image I have done all season!  Perfect for a young person who is really into blood and guts and the Zombie Apocalypse.
The image was colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils.  The front of the base card was cut off and a double sided Designer Paper was adhered to the front flap.  The sentiment, which comes with the image, was punched and mounted on a 2nd larger punched shape.  A small hole was punched in the top and then I used a small quilters tool to insert a plastic 'hanger' [similar to how retailers attach a price tag to a piece of clothing.]  This allows the sentiment to swing freely on the front of the card.


INSIDE
The inside utilizes the black strip from which I punched the mat. This created a 'window' for the "hello..." sentiment and a mat behind the message panel.  LoVe when I can use my scraps like this!! 

So - here is the behind the scene story about this card...
Oddball Art offered a free image to anyone who would color and send a card to a 9 yo boy who had health problems.  I'm thinking  - ok 9 yo, a boy - he will love oooogie.  So I ordered this image and got it ready to send and got to thinking about his health problem... he has brain cancer and PROBABLY would be facing brain surgery!  OMGawd!  What was I thinking!  Just LOOK at that image - soooo inappropriate!  So I switched out another card and quick emailed the Oddball people and told them of my poor taste in choices - heavy sigh.  The kid got a card, I caught the problem in time AND I got a free image.  It was a very good day afterall.

Halloween 2/5

Another Mo Manning image - I feel these images can stand alone with her wonderful detail!  Copics are my go to coloring medium with occasional use of Prismacolor Pencils for detail work and shading.  I did use a "Floating Image" technique on the card base to create a more interesting frame since I did not use embellishments. 

This technique is so simple to do...
  • Cut CS 11" x 4.25" - fold in half with a top fold
  • From the front panel - cut 1" off the bottom and then a 2nd 1" piece so that you end up with two strips, each 1" x  4.25"
  • One strip ends up in its original position at the bottom as you see in these photos 
  • The "magic" key to holding all this together is the 2nd strip that is turned vertically and connects the upper and lower portions of the front panel.  This should be affixed with a strong double sided tape as in a red liner tape or the like. 
  • The focal image panel is then laid over that strip, again use a strong adhesive, and place it to hide the strip.
  • Note: the vertical strip does not have to be centered, you could move it slightly one direction or the other - perhaps to reveal a sentiment on the inside.
