Blooming Pink

there are a number of challenges using pink for breast cancer awareness this month. i’ve mentioned before that i love pink but i’d like to raise awareness of the think before you pink campaign that “calls for more transparency and accountability by companies that take part in breast cancer fundraising, and encourages consumers to ask critical questions about pink ribbon promotions.” as one who has lived the experience i ask more questions and check more labels; i hope you do too.

on to my card.

pink flower thank you card

i painted the marianne design die cut flower with twinkling H2Os, added a marianne design branch and die cut sentiment from penny black. the dark green card stock and pretty background papers were included in the simon says kit of the month for may but these pretty papers are still available.

i’m playing along with these challenges:

pink floral birthday card copyright linda snailzpace.com

i usually paint images for focal points but this time i cut the memory box verona bouquet from watercolour paper and sponged with distress inks. i also used distress ink for the magenta stencil background and stamped a clearly besotted sentiment.

Have A Mice Day

since it’s the first sunday of a new month, we have a new theme for you at the Penny Black And More Challenge – Pretty in Pink – Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Penny Black mice copyright linda snailzpace.com-1

having lived through cancer, my feelings are strong; i like pink but i loathe corporations using pink ribbons for a feel good promotional tool without actually contributing to the prevention and eradication of the disease. sure, mammograms can detect the disease but if more than 5% of all the millions of dollars raised went into researching prevention, maybe less women and men would be diagnosed in the first place.

on to my card – i painted this penny black image, especially micey, with twinkling H2Os on hot press watercolour paper; i thought the lawn fawn quilted background die paired nicely with the embroidery. remember the focal point has to be hand stamped to play along for a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes from our generous sponsors: Penny Black, Lost Coast Designs and Visible Image Stay Strong stamp.

Thanksgiving Pumpkin

i’m cutting it close to the deadline for the new Impression Obsession Challenge – Pumpkin Spice!

pumpkin thank you card copyright inda snailzpace.com

i painted the background and pumpkin (CL980 holiday icons) with daniel smith watercolour paints on hot press watercolour paper, stamped the sentiment (CL549 more basic greetings) in versafine clair acorn ink and added some brown gingham ribbon. to finish off i sponged the edges of the kraft base with brushed corduroy distress ink.

our canadian thanksgiving is october 14 so this small card will be used then.

Sending A Big Hug

a sketch challenge is a great motivator for when i have difficulty designing a card so i used the Paper Smooches September 2019 SKETCH challenge layout.

puppy hug card copyright linda snailzpace.com

i opted to use both the colours and the sketch. i fussy cut and painted the cup from the SugarPea Designs Mugs & Kisses stamp set with twinkling H2Os on hot press watercolour paper and attached it to a silver shimmer cardstock circle. the blue mats were sponged with chipped sapphire distress ink and the merry was cut from the back of this photo play lost mitten paper. both the image panel and sentiment were popped on foam tape.

it’s my DT month off at the Rudolph Days Challenge but i’m playing along for fun to continue my monthly christmas card creations.

scarecrow and pumpkin card copyright linda snailzpace.com

i’m playing along with the My Favorite Things 2019 Card Design Superstar: Colouring Virtuoso challenge.

i started this card by stamping the centre pumpkin on Arches hot press watercolour paper and masking it to stamp the other two and the scarecrow. first i painted the sky with twinkling H2Os and then all the images from the My Favorite Things Fall Friends stamp set. i fussy cut the hat to add the plaid ribbon, the crow to pop him on the hat, and the leaves from the MFT Harvest Buddies stamp set. i attached the image panel to some purple cardstock and then to a beige base.

Small Christmas Cards For Rudolph Days Challenge

it’s my turn to create a project for the August Rudolph Days Challenge, hosted by Maureen.

i was going to post each little card individually, but i think they show up well enough in the group photo.

i love using small images on tags but this time i made a set of six 3 inch cards and a box following this tutorial. these cute little images are from the Clearly Besotted ‘shake it up’ clear stamp set that i painted with twinkling H2Os on hot pressed watercolour paper and fussy cut. the pretty papers are from the Penny Black Christmas 6 x 6 Paper Pad Festive and Frosty and the sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder. i used a white gel pen for the snow and added glitter to each snow mound. the dots were made with a mama elephant border die.

remember you have until the end of the month to play along for a generous prize and, as always, it’s an anything goes christmas theme. i know, it’s summer and maybe it’s too early to think about holiday cards, but there are only 3 Rudolph Days Challenges before Christmas – will you be ready?

Penny Black And More Reminder – Masculine

i’m back with a reminder that you still have plenty of time to join the Penny Black and More Challenge where we’re focusing on cards For Boys and Men this month.

birthday card with cat in gray and blue

once again i used caran d’ache luminance colour pencils on a light grey card stock; this happy cat is from the penny black birthday critters clear set and the sentiment is a penny black die called sweet wishes. i sponged distress ink around the edges of both the image panel and the card.

our rules are easy – the focal point must be hand stamped and must follow the theme to be eligible for a prize from one of the generous sponsors: Penny Black, Crafts U Love plus A Clarity Art stencil.

thanks for popping by.

Interactive Mini Album

it was so much fun to create this little album even if i did make a big mess. the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 58 is INTERACTIVE so i had to be creative with their products since i don’t have many of their interactive dies.

mini album

i used lawn fawn’s spring fling papers, the LF Stitched Gift Card Pocket to create the pocket fronts and the front flap shape and a variety of embellishments all listed at the end of this post.

i used the LF Tag You’re It die to cut the pages, trimming off the top portion and turning them upside down. i used random cute images and painted them with twinkling H2Os on hot pressed watercolour paper.

the lemons were fussy cut and the chipmunk masked to allow for splatters.

i used a silver glitter pen on the flute and a clear gloss pen on the horn.

the floral card opens up and this is the inside:

the flap was sponged with distress ink and opens to reveal these little cuties, fussy cut, along with the log and two yellow flowers cut from the paper:

the album closes with a small magnet.

i’m also playing along with Scrapy Land Challenge #119 and its anything goes theme using dies sold at their store.

Product Review – DYMO Label Writer

if you follow me you know i have posted about products that are useable by me along with reasons why others are not. in addition to having severe RA i’m still trying to find the right balance between playing creating and working staying organized but my new label printer has been a big help.

i’ve been using the DYMO LabelWriter Wireless Label Printer since i bought it during boxing week specials at staples.ca last year and i love it:

  • it’s wireless
  • it’s a thermal printer so no ink or toner is used
  • i can use the software on my mac with my full keyboard
  • and an app on my iPhone and iPad with my apple keyboard and/or dictate
  • it’s fast! according to the advertising, it prints about 71 labels per minute
  • the labels are easy to separate from the backing paper
  • no batteries
  • easy touch buttons

why not other machines?

my first labeller was the Brother p-touch 90, but i wasn’t using it very much. any task that requires fine motor skills is difficult and sometimes painful, not to mention very time consuming – it took me just over 3 minutes to create one label. in that time, the DYMO LW would have printed over 200. the keyboard is so small, there is not enough of a contrast on the view screen, and separating the label from the backing paper was extremely challenging.

i did try label sheets but aligning portions of sheets was difficult, also very time consuming and used ink and/or toner.

i want to spend my time and energy doing what i love so for me this is the ideal label printer.

Make A Wish – Penny Black And More

it’s the first sunday of a new month, august already, so we have a new theme at the Penny Black and More Challenge: For Boys and Men.

birthday card with spotted dog

i coloured this cute dog from the penny black birthday party set with caran d’ache luminance colour pencils on a light grey card stock this time; i’m testing them out on different papers. i used the avery elle wonky stitch die and added the sentiment.

our rules are easy – the focal point must be hand stamped and must follow the theme to be eligible for a prize from one of the generous sponsors: Penny Black, Crafts U Love plus A Clarity Art stencil.

Strawberry Hedgies

this was a quick and easy card and fun to colour.

hippos going back to school card copyright linda snailzpace.com

these cute hippos from the Clearly Besotted being schooled clear stamp set were painted with daniel smith watercolours on hot press watercolour paper that i custom mixed and then fussy cut. i used the sunny studio staggered circles die and layered the piece over another white card stock piece that i sponged with mustard seed distress ink. i also sponged the left border of the white base. the sentiment is from the Clearly Besotted mini calligraphy stamp set.

Smiling Kites

since i had my Impression Obsession  ‘signs of summer’ stamp set out, i used the smiling kites to create another card for the Impression Obsession challenge theme of Things That Fly (not just birds and butterflies!)

IO kites copyright linda snailzpace.com

i painted again with tombow markers on hot press watercolour paper and added nuvo shimmer pen to the kites on this small notecard. the shimmer pen seems to have lifted some colour so i added more colour after this photo was taken. the sentiment is from the IO ‘more basic greetings’ (CL549) clear stamp set.

Flying Frisbees

it is way too hot to be outdoors so i’m keeping cool while i create summer cards.

summery card in yellow and blue copyright linda snailzpace.com

i sponged three yellow distress inks onto cold press watercolour paper and spritzed it and used a leftover scrap of watercolour paper created with turquoise nuance powder to cut the impression obsession sandals (DIE190-C) and the IO hello sunshine (DIE691-C). the chair, part of the same die set as the sandals, was just cut from plain watercolour paper.

i added a beach ball that i painted free hand. i used the dot of the i to cover the beach ball valve and i added a drop of glossy accents to it.

my summer colours are green grass and blue skies so i carried the sky in the image circle out to the front of the card. i painted this cute penny black mouse from the ‘critter fun’ set with twinkling H2Os and used the impression obsession die cut sentiment. the wonky stitches rectangle dies are new to me; i really liked them on my teamie’s cards; thanks ellie.

Camping Critters

i made another card for the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 55 MOOD BOARD & COLOUR INSPIRATION:

look who’s peeking out! i cut around the door with a kraft knife and added a piece of paper from the lawn fawn spring fling paper pad behind the door opening.

i’ve been having fun with the lawn fawn happy trails stamp set so this time i created a 3 inch card, painted with twinkling H2Os and added these cute little critters from the LF smooth sailing stamp set. everything was fussy cut, a challenge in itself with my RA hands so after i finished the card, i ordered the coordinating die set. then i’ll be a happy camper. i know.

i sponged distress inks: peacock feathers for the sky and twisted citron for the grass, cut with LF stitched hills die set. i stamped the sentiment from the LF oh what fun stamp set and stamped two suns from the LF so much to say stamp set so i could layer it.

thanks for popping by.

You Drive Me Happy

the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 55 MOOD BOARD & COLOUR INSPIRATION is full of summer items and bright colours.

summer camping card in bright colours

i painted the car and trailer from the Lawn Fawn happy trails stamp set with tombow markers bright set on hot press watercolour paper, cut with coordinating dies and added glossy accents to the windows. i stamped the line markings on grey cardstock and masked the two sentiments from the happy trails set to create this one. the sky was created with nuance powders and cold press watercolour paper and die cut clouds from the into the woods die set. to finish my card, i popped the vehicles on foam tape.

In Loving Memory

today’s card was created in memory of my son, who passed away ten years ago; it’s hard to believe so much time has passed while at other times it seems to stand still.

wizard card in grey and purple

every year i focus on one memory and create a card around it. this penny black mo manning wizard resembles my son’s art, especially his comic book art and his colouring. gandalf came to mind; my husband took our son and daughter to see lord of the rings nine times when it first hit theatres in december 2001. yes, big tolkien fans so i had to use gold mirri for one of the mats.

i painted the sky and image on hot press watercolour paper with custom colours i mixed of twinkling H2Os. to this day, i thank my son for sharing his art supplies with me, especially a watercolour paint brush and some of the ‘rules’ along with a lot of encouragement. i got messy and created the background with alcohol inks.

i’m sharing my card with these challenges:

Challenge #280 Anything “Mo” Goes (Optional Theme: “For the Boys/Guys”)

As You Like It Challenge Favourite Stamp Brand (& why): if i could only pick one brand, i’d choose penny black as it was my first clear stamp set. i love the quality of the illustrations and the cute critters make me smile while i’m painting them – sometimes, they’re a bit mischievous which makes them all the more entertaining. also, i like that a lot of the images are generously sized so that my style allows them to be a major part of the card’s focus. i’m fortunate to be a design team member for the penny black and more challenge where we all share our love of penny black stamps.

thanks for popping by.

Hip Hip Hooray!

i couldn’t be more proud of my daughter for earning her second degree; this is a spinning graduation cap tag i created to attach to a gift for her graduation party.graduation spinning cap tagi painted the lawn fawn smart cookie stamp graduation cap with my favourite black watercolour paint from sennelier and purple paint for the tassel then used the coordinating die.

i die cut two lawn fawn stitched circle tags: one from the spring fling paper pad and one white cardstock for the back that i stamped with ‘you’re one smart cookie’ from the smart cookie stamp set.

the slide on over circle die set was used for the interactive element; i stamped the sentiment from the tiny tag saying birthday stamp set, and layered with three pieces of yellow foam to create the channel. some of the foam needs to be trimmed from the edges to allow room for the penny/disc to move and spin the cap as it travels along the channel.

i’m playing along with the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 54 – PERFECT FOR PARTIES.

Numbered Thank You

i needed a masculine thank you card for a number cruncher so i kept it clean and simple.

Are We There Yet?

i’m playing along with the LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 53 – SPECTACULAR SKIES.

lawn fawn happy trails copyright linda snailzpace.com

campers at dusk; remember those long road trips?

i used 140 lb. cold press watercolour paper for lawn fawn’s stitched hillside border and sky; i swiped wild honey and worn lipstick distress inks on craft mat, spritzed with water and pressed the paper into it to create my background. lawn fawn’s happy trails images were stamped on 140 lb. hot press w/c paper and painted with my new daniel smith watercolour paints that i treated myself to; for years i’ve painted with twinkling H2Os so i need more play time to get used to these.

the hill was popped on foam tape, as were a couple of the trees and the vehicles. to finish it off, i cut a strip of paper that was sponged with black soot distress ink and i added the lines with a white gel pen.
