Rainy Friday

It is a rainy Friday here, but I do enjoy rainy days once in a while, and it gives me an excuse to stay home and spend time in my craft room and to spend time with the kids who are all home today.

Just got the Unity April KOM, and I love these stamps. This is the first one I inked up, but I cannot wait to use more of these later today.

Have been spending some time cleaning and getting ready for the post wide garage sale on April 30. I am pretty sure that I own way too much paper (and other craft supplies), and I am going to make an effort to use more than I buy for the next few months.

The flower stamp is from Unity, I like how this came out, it is simple and pretty.

This dp is from SEI and the sentiment stamp from Amuse.

And here is a picture of my little guy, he is a handful, but lots of fun too.....

Made one similar to this, but I like this one much better....

Again a card that I love, and usually it takes me a day or two before I like most of the stuff I make. I think that the bird goes really well with this sentiment, and as always the stamps are from Unity and papers from PTI.

The Be Mine collections from Echo Park are so pretty and I never get tired of using these papers.

Monday again.... Why do weekends seem so short? At least the weather was excellent here and we were able to spend a lot of time outside. And ofcourse I did make a few cards too.

I love how this card turned out, I used stamps from Unitys March KOM and the sentiment is from Amuse. The cardstock is from PTI and the dp that I made the rosette from is Echo Park Be Mine (still some of my favorite papers).

This one was pretty quick to make, I left it blank with no sentiment, so I can use it for anything. Again the stamp is from Unity cardstock and ribbon from PTI.

TFL, and have a happy week!

More cards:

All stamps used are from Unity (yes I love Unity Stamps), papers are from PTI and MME, and nestabilities was used for both cards.
Following are a few cards to share:

Stamps are from Unity and sentiment from Papertrey Ink, the paper is from Papertrey Ink, and divine twine that I got from I Heart Papers.

This one was pretty quick to make. Stamps are from Unity, ribbon from PTI and the pin is from Maya Road.

Papers from DCWV and stamps from Unity, ribbon from PTI. I think that I have made one similar to this before, but I do love these papers and think that this is a pretty card, and it would be so easy to change the sentiment and make it for any other occasion needed.

New Puppy Blues

We finally got the puppy that everyone wanted (I did want a small white dog, but we ended up with a large black one), and the kids are all so very happy, so why am I feeling so upset and stressed about getting the dog? I feel as if I have postpartum depression, and go from liking the puppy to feeling really down and depressed about the new responsibilites. I sure hope this gets better soon....
Vaughnie loves the dog most of the time, but sometimes he seems a little afraid of Ranger too....

Oh well, at least I can escape to my craft room and spend some time relaxing and making stuff at night.

The stamp is from Unity, and the paper is DCWV, the flower trim is from American Crafts. This was super easy, and I love how it turned out.

I am having issues with my sewing machine, but tried sewing this anyway, and it did not come out as I had hoped. Stamp is a Unity Itty Bitty, and the sentiment is from Unity too (don't remember what set at the moment), the paper is from PTI. I used black sparkly stickles on the heart, which is hard to see in the picture.

I stamped the background (Inkadinkado) in purple and then stamped the dress form in VersaMark, embossed it and sponged purple ink over it. Embossed the yellow card with dots and used divine twine. The papers are from Papertrey Ink and Bazzil, and I am not sure where the epoxy sticker came from, just had it sitting around on my craft table and decided to use it.

When I saw a tutorial for the Bargello Technique, I thought that it would be a great way to use papers from my ever growing scrap basket on my craft table, so here is my first try at this, it was a lot of fun, even though it did not turn out exactly as I had imagined it, but I will play with this technique and try again. As usual though time is scarce, especially since we got a puppy 3 days ago, he is way more time consuming than I thought a puppy would have been....

As mentioned I used papers from the scrap basket on my table, they are all from DCWV, the stamp is a Unity itty bitty called Marah Love. I die cut the bargello piece with my Grand Calibur and attached it to a card that is just slightly smaller that the front.
