When I got the e-mail about the MFT Wednesday Challenge I had to make something. I love sketch challenges because sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a rut with my card layouts. So I used Here's the Scoop stamp set. I just love the little ice cream in this set so I knew it was perfect for the Hello Kitty polka dot paper. I don't have a scallop punch for the bottom so instead I used a little lace.
It has been a while since I pulled out my monkey stamps. So when I saw this little guy in the drawer I decided to give the cloud coloring technique a try. My clouds didn't turn out anything like Arabella's but I don't think it is too bad for my first try. I can see that I need to get more Copics. :) I didn't have the colors she used so I might just have to see about getting those colors and giving this another shot.
This picture isn't the greatest because I took it with my iPad (nothing as great as my DSLR camera). I was excited about the card and couldn't wait to drag the camera out. I used Romantic Gwen from Some Odd Girl. This is the last of the new sets I got a few weeks ago. I made this card to match the goodies I've been making from Pinterest this week.
This is a picture frame and I just added some ribbon to it. I "framed" a white piece of card stock. The plan is to put this on my desk and use an Expo marker to write my to do lists. This will be so easy since I always have an Expo close by at school.
My other Pinterest project this week was this ribbon wreath for my classroom door. Can you tell what color my room is? I decorated with black with white polka dots and a touch of red when I moved to a new room last summer. I love it so much and plan to keep the colors for the upcoming school year. I picked these colors because they match my Canon strap. Silly right?
To make this wreath I got a styrofoam wreath form at Michael's. Then I cut the ribbon into 4 inch strips. I used straight pins to pin the ribbon to the wreath. I was going to use hot glue but for some reason hot glue doesn't seem to hold real well around here. So I went with the pins with the hopes that they will stay put.
So the Some Odd Girl Facebook Challenge today was to make a card where your girl has nontraditional colored hair. I went with blue but I hope that doesn't make you think of old ladies with blue hair. :) This was something different I hadn't done before but I like it. I normally make all the girls I color look like me- brown hair, brown/red hair. This one was fun!
That's Prima's catch phrase. Well, I got flower and got flowers and never did anything with them. So this week I challenged myself to use some of those flowers I've been getting. I have a ton of them and never use them because they just don't look complete to me. I added a few dew drops to the middle and I think I like the way these turned out. See what you think!
This is a new stamp I got from Some Odd Girl! Isn't she cute?
And this one is from The Greeting Farm. I used my letters to add "i'm nerdy and i know it" because that is so fitting for me.
Are you tired of seeing my Greeting Farm stamps yet? I just love these girls and I found another stamp company I love just as much. Have you heard of Some Odd Girl stamps? Oh my, love at first sight for me. I ordered a few clear stamps and I'm thinking of getting a few digi images as well. I can't wait to get some time for stamping and show you what I've done.
Here's another card I made with my Greeting Farm stamps. I colored it with Copics. I can't tell you how much I love those markers. I haven't even touched my colored pencils since I got them. I guess I shouldn't neglect my pencils but they just don't give me the smooth color the Copics do!
I've been stamping and just haven't posting anything in a while. So since summer is here I've decided to update my stamping blog. I have a school blog and photography blog too. This is one of the cards I made with a Greeting Farm stamp. I love these little girl stamps. I'll be posting more cards soon!
