Battle Cancer

Howdy!

This week my uncle lost his battle to cancer. He fought it bravely for 4 years. My (step) Dad was diagnosed shortly after my uncle. And my dad passed away first; in June of 2016. My first dog, Einstein, passed away at the end of that year from the same cancer that killed my dad. And yet my uncle still battled the illness. My youngest cousin, his baby girl, got married in October 2018. At that point my uncle was spending half his week at home and the other half in the hospital. But, this week he couldn't battle anymore.

I'm glad my uncle is no longer in pain. And no longer has to endure the treatment to battle his cancer. It's so hard to believe that there's still no cure for cancer. Other than going through Chemo and radiation.

So when I saw this week's sketch, Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 477, over at the My Favorite Things blog. There was only one stamp that I thought of using.

I am also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Add A Sentiment Challenge.

For this card I started out by die cutting the card. Then I stamped the mouse onto some White Daisy cardstock. After I was done coloring this image in I fussy cut it out. Before placing it onto the card, I stamped half of the mouse on the card and then I glued the mouse down. For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment on first before putting the card together. Once the card was put together, I thought it was missing something. So after doing a little stamp surgery. I stamped the little confetti pieces under the sentiment, and then I colored them. The rest of the instructions on how I made the card come with the die cut I used.

Owl Wish You a Happy Birthday

Howdy!

Today's card is being entered into these challenges:

Your Next Stamp Challenge #132 – Create Your Own Background
A Blog Named Hero - Birthday Challenge
AAA Birthday Card Challenges - Game #10 Cute
Time Out Challenges - Challenge #155




For this card, I did quite a few techniques. The first was stamping the owls onto the watercolor paper. Then heat embossing them. After that I sprayed the paper down with my water bottle. I found that the best was to get the Arteza watercolor paper to work is to spray it down first. I then used my Arteza pens to color them in and blended that out with my waterbrush. Once, I was happy with how the owls look. I next created a mask by stamping the owls onto a Post-It note and the fussy cutting that out. Then I placed the mask over the owls. Next, I took out my homemade stencil, part of a sponge, and my distress oxide ink pad. I then used those items to create my cloudy background. After that I sprayed the oxide ink with my water bottle. This was my first time using the oxide ink to create cloudy background. But, I like how it turned out. What do you think?

Peaceful Garden

Howdy!

Today's card is being entered into these challenges:
AAA Cards CAS Game #159 - One Corner + optional twist Love Those Older Supplies
For the older supplies that I used, I would have to say my various stamp pads. As I rarely do cards that I don't color in myself.
Altenew 2020 February Inspiration Challenge



This image reminds me of my mother-in-law's garden. Although, to actually do her garden justice. I would have to stamp out a series of cards. You see my mother-in-law doesn't have only a flower garden. She also has a fruit tree and vegetable garden. And now she's been expanding her garden into growing herbal medical type plants. That of course is underneath her various trees. It's almost like visiting a state park when you go to her house.

For this card, I did a good deal of masking. But first, I started out by stamping the flowers onto the card base. Then, I stamped them onto some Post-It notes that I then fussy cut out. The flowers cut from the Post-It notes were then used as masks. I couldn't think of a sentiment to put onto this card so I left that part off. The good thing about that is you can stamp whatever sentiment you would like to onto it later.

In Memory of Bill Blog Hop


Howdy!

This hop is to support our friend and fellow design team member Sue Trembeth. Sue recently lost  her brother to esophageal cancer. The color theme for this hop is periwinkle, which is the color of esophageal cancer awareness.

If this is your first stop on the hop please start at
Mynn Kitchen's blog - On a Stampage

If you are on track with the hop the next stop on the hop is

Cancer is a terrible disease and it's hard to believe that people still die from it. We lost my step-dad to liver cancer in 2016. More recently my younger brother passed away last month. So I empathize with Sue.

As for the details on how I created this card. Sorry, I won't be providing those today. But I will have a YouTube video available later detailing how it was created.

My inspiration for the card. And one of the lights of my life is my sweet girl Samantha. She's a very sweet girl unless she has a toy or is playing with one of our other dogs. Then she's a real terror. Also, it's quite hard to get a good picture of her. Because when they were coming up with Vantablack, aka the blackest black. They must of used her as a reference, LOL. When we go downstairs at night, with the lights out. We find her by looking for the black hole looking area. But, I wouldn't go putting anything on her back. Well except for a dog toy or treat.

Mistletoe Love and Kisses

Howdy!

Today's card is being entered  into these challenges:
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #309 Anything Goes with the option of Love and/or Valentine's, Hostess Bunny. 

Although it is a Christmas stamp, it does have a romantic feel. And to help emphasize that more, I added the hearts surrounding the mice.

I hope y'all are having a wonderful Valentine's Day or a great weekend! I love this stamp because it shows how much work can go into that special kiss.

The first Valentine's Day I had with my husband was wonderful! We were still dating at the time. We had only been dating since Thanksgiving. And one of the things we enjoyed doing was going on walks through the grounds of the State Capital. (We live in Austin, TX) So that Valentine's evening he picked me up for our date and before dinner we went on a walk. While we were on our walk he sat me down on one of the benches. And he proposed. We will be celebrating our 19th Valentine's Day today.

And although he will be resting from having laser eye surgery today. We still love each other now as much as we did back then. I'd say even more, as we've grown together a lot in all these years.

Writing Love Notes

Howdy!

Today's card was submitted to Paper Smooches February LOVE Challenge. For the card, I started with some book paper and stamped the ink bottle onto it. I then took out some white cardstock and stamped the letter and quill pen. Then I fussy cut both of those stamped pieces out. Next, I glued the letter onto the book paper. After that I stamped the quill pen onto the letter piece and the book paper. For the quill pen I sprayed ink onto it and then used foam tape to pop the feather part up. You see when I fussy cut the quill pen, I only cut out the feather. Once that was done, I then applied liquid glass onto the stamped bottle. To give it a more glossy look, creating the illusion of a real bottle.

Here's a close up to help illustrate what I'm talking about.

Water Colored Birthday Cheers

Howdy!

These two cards were entered into the Simon Says Stamp Instagram Challenge #SSSIGChallenge.
To create them I used my favorite technique of ink smooshing. I then die cut the word CHEERS from the watercolor paper. The first card, I then die cut the word CHEERS from a scrap of dark cardstock. At which point I inlaid the dark cardstock into the watercolor paper. And then I stamped the ink, applied the embossing powder and heat embossed it.

For the second card. I cut a smaller piece of watercolor paper and did some ink smooshing. I then die cut out the word CHEERS. And then applied that to black cardstock. Then I stamped, applied embossing powder and heat embossed it.

Hearts Knit Together

Howdy!

Today's card uses my favorite techniques of ink smooshing and using a stencil. This creates a beautiful CAS (clean and simple) look. I am entering this card into the Impression Obsession blog challenge which is Hugs & Kisses. It is also being entered into the Simon Says Stamp With Love challenge. And into the  CASology Sweetheart challenge.

The stamp that I used is Impression Obsession's Sock Bunny stamp.

I do have one thing to say though. And it's because I've been trying out a few other watercolor papers. Hands down Canson XL Watercolor paper is the BEST for ink smooshing with a stencil.

Puppy Love

Howdy!

Today's card is being submitted into the Lawn Fawn blog challenge 70 Which is the Lots of Love Inspiration Board.  I am also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp With Love challenge.



I love today's card. It might be because the dogs in it remind me of my own. Or it may be the rainbow hearts. Either way, I do.

This is a gift my sister-in-law and her husband (the artist) created that helps give an impression of our dogs.

To create this card, I'll start with the watercolor piece. I started that by pulling out my watercolor piece and laying it onto my Make Art Stay-tion. Which let me tell you is one of my favorite pieces in the craftroom. It's as important a tool as my stamp perfect tool, paper trimmer and scissors. I then pulled out my stencil. After setting it up on the stay-tion. I pulled out the inks and ink daubers that you apply to your fingers. After the ink was applied, I then used my water bottle and sprayed.

The next thing I did was to stamp the dogs and color them in. Once that was done, I then fussy cut them out. I also stamped the dogs on the watercolor piece. After I popped the dogs up with foam tape. I then realized they were missing something. Which is when I stamped, colored and fussy cut the ball. And finally I glued the ball onto one of the dogs. The last piece is the sentiment. Which I die cut. Then stamped and applied embossing powder onto. With the embossing powder on, I put the rest back in the bottle. And then I used my heat embossing gun and glued that piece onto the card.

Sending you Love

Howdy!

Today's card is for the Rainbow Challenge Blog's Fiercely Fuchsia challenge. For the die cut LOVE sentiment, I did the direct to paper technique. Where you apply the ink pad to the cardstock and swipe, which creates fuchsia cardstock. Then I used my Xyron to run some foam sheet onto, I did this twice. The first time, I placed the cardstock onto the side with adhesive from the Xyron. And the second time, I ran the foam sheet with the cardstock on top through the Xyron to make a sticker. After this step, I then ran the cardstock sticker through my die cuttter and the LOVE die cut.

I am also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp With Love challenge. Along with the Time Out Challenges Affectionate challenge. And the Try It on Tuesday Share the Love challenge.
