Day 11 Copic Coloring "YOU'RE GREAT!" card using MFT stamps/dies MFTWSC267

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 11 coloring project




I received an order yesterday and in it was this adorable My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamp from the Roarin' Good Day stamp set.  

I stamped the image using Memento Black ink onto some white card stock. I then stamped the image on Orange MFT card stock in Versafine Black ink.   I cut the image out of the orange card stock, colored the face, hands of the image on the white card stock, cut them out and put them on the cut out image.   Then I went looking for some card stock and realized that so much of my favorite papers are sitting in storage.  I went with what I have on hand.!   I'm going to mail this one off to a "Tigger" that we have in the family. When I showed my card to my husband he said it reminded him of the Tigger we had running around the house.     I used all MFT dies on my card.




I used this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge MFTWSC267:

OSAT FEBRUARY BLOG HOP


It's the second Thursday of the month so you know what time it is???   One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop!!!

This month's theme is "LOVE IS IN THE AIR" ~ when I first saw what the theme was I started singing the song:  Love is in the air everywhere I look around ~ Love is in the air every sight and every sound ~ And I don't know if I'm being foolish ~ Don't know if I'm being wise ~ But it's something that I must believe in ~ And it's there when I look in your eyes..........

okay..   enough singing..   on to my card.     I made this card about a month ago. It's been sitting on top of a rack that sits on my desk.  This week I wanted to drop it in the mail to send it off to someone special.. and I looked all over the place for it and couldn't find it.  I mailed that person off a different card, then sat down only to look up and there it was!!!   Do any of you all do the same thing? Something you are looking for is right in front of you and yet you can't see it.   

I used the Art Impressions Unmounted stamp 4215 Tina Set. I colored this fun image up with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, cut her out and layered her onto my card using Foam Tape.  This image makes me smile every time I look at it.



I have been a very busy lady today putting together two projects for a Valentine's Day party that I am going to on Friday. My oldest daughter has Cerebral Palsy and attends a day program here in town.   I filled mailboxes with a bag full of all kinds of candy, treats and goodies.  After filling all the mailboxes, I started on the pudding Minion Valentine's.      

NOTE: This is not my original idea. I saw a post about these adorable Valentine's and just had to make them for everybody.   Here is the link to where I read about how to make them as well as download the Printable Valentine that I added to each of them..  THE TIP TOE FAIRY

Thank you Stephanie for such a wonderful idea and for the adorable printable.


One of the people that go to the center is diabetic so I bought Sugar-Free vanilla pudding and put two together taping two of the sides to keep them on top of each other. 



Since I shipped all my punches, I asked a friend if she had some punches I could borrow to make these. I have dies, but the punches made it SO much easier.    I have no gray card stock on hand, nor did my friends and neither did the two local printers. I saved a gray card stock color and then opened it up to print, printed it to fit the page. It printed off the whole piece of card stock in the gray color I needed.
**note..  you could buy the big googly eyes instead of using the black and white circles. I figured that the puddings are going to be eaten and the containers tossed out, so I went with the paper punches instead and used the money to buy some other goodies for the party.



These fun tags are available for free download on the The Tip Toe Fairy site:

Day 10. Distress Inks "They Say GOLF is like" .. fail.

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 10 coloring project



I am taking part of a Blog Hop that starts tomorrow. After getting my blog post ready I thought I'd play around with a new stamp set that arrived today.   I sponged distress inks onto watercolor paper and then stamped..  stamp didn't stamp well..  inked up another piece of watercolor paper (R) by rubbing ink pads straight to paper.. didn't step well again.. so I do it again this time with white card stock. I then put water on the stamp of the golfer and stamped it on top of the saying..  not sure I like any of them, but oh well I tried.  I'm off to bed. I'll try something different tomorrow.   night

Day 9. Copic Coloring "I MISS YOU SO MUCH" card using MFT Pure Innocence Soldier Girl

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 9 coloring project






I was in Wal-Mart today looking for some black tape and silver paper. I found the black tape but no silver paper. I am making Minion Pudding Valentine's to take to a party at the center where my oldest daughter attends.  While looking for the silver paper I noticed a paper pad of Patriotic paper.  I had to buy it ~ after all the label said it was $5.00.  It ended being only $4.00 ~ score me!!

My daughter asked me last night if I could crochet a scarf for her dorm mate at college. Her dorm mate then asked me "pretty please" if I would make her one.. of course I would.  I started on it earlier tonight and said I would crochet until 9 and then get to my desk to make something.  At 10:20 I finally moved to my desk. 

 I colored the skin, hair, hat and shoes of this adorable My Favorite Things Pure Innocence image and then paper pieced her dress.   I had to use papers from my new paper pad. I had already printed off this week's MoJo Monday Sketch this morning so I was set to go.   

I used this week's MOJO Monday Sketch #434:




SUPPLIES:

card stock:  MFT Kraft, Red. Bazzill Navy Blue. White

Day 8. (Part 2)(W/A Tip) Zig Pens Coloring "YOU'RE A HOOT!" card using Taylored Expressions Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp set

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 8 coloring project Part 2.




Earlier today when I colored up the owls for this >>CARD<< ~ I only used two and had the yellow one I used on this card leftover.   I still had papers and such laying out on my desk so I thought I'd make another card.  I was going to use the same CYCI#106 sketch for this card, but decided to put the squares in different corners instead.

A tip to share..  when I have a piece of pattern paper that won't fit across an area that I need it to. I lay it on my card and then lay the piece on top of the strip so that I know where I can snip the strip.  I then put each end on a layer and then put it on my card, put the piece on the card covering up where I snipped the piece and waalaa.. it fits!   This particular piece was long enough, but the strips on it didn't go all the way across.


SUPPLIES:

card stock:  brown, Tim Holtz Ranger Watercolor Paper
pattern paper: Echo Park "The Story of our Family"
stamps: Taylored Expressions Hoot Hoot Hooray
ink: Versafine black, Asst. Yellow Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens
accessories:  Scor-Pal, Stampin' UP! Vine (?) Embossing Folder, MFT Square Stax Die-namics, Taylored Expressions Hoot Hoot Hooray Dies,Brown Brads, Hole Punch, Scor-Tape and Foam Tape

Day 8. Zig Pens Coloring "YOU'RE A HOOT!" card using Taylored Expressions Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp set

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 8 coloring project.




I found out about a challenge blog yesterday ~ Can You Case It.  I love challenges and so I thought I'd use their sketch for this week for my card.    I cut everything and then picked some stamps.  I wish I had cut the panels a tad bit smaller, but they were already cut, embossed and adhered to the brown layers so I just went with it.  

I was gifted this adorable stamp set by my good friend Beverly.  I thought I'd use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color in the owls.  I colored in a third owl that is smaller than these two, but it's eyes were facing in a different direction and it looked kinda funny, so I left it off and went with using just these two.

Here is this week's Can You Case It Sketch:   CYCI#106




SUPPLIES:

card stock:  brown, Tim Holtz Ranger Watercolor Paper
pattern paper: Echo Park "The Story of our Family"
stamps: Taylored Expressions Hoot Hoot Hooray
ink: Versafine black, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens: 60, 62, 65, 22, 28, 230, 36, 42, 400, 31, 302
accessories:  Scor-Pal, Stampin' UP! Vine (?) Embossing Folder, MFT Square Stax Die-namics, Taylored Expressions Hoot Hoot Hooray Dies, Scor-Tape and Foam Tape

Day 7. Distress Inking Embossing Folder "ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU..." card using Stampin' UP! For Your Country

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 7 coloring project.




What a day today has been.  My son and I watched a golf tournament and was pulling for Rickie Fowler, but he ended up with what I call the "Bubba Watson" award, second place. Then we went right into watching the Super Bowl.  What a game. Congrats to the Denver Broncos on being Super Bowl Champions. Their defense was awesome.  

Now for my card..  nothing hard at all and so much fun to make.     I grabbed a Darice Star embossing folder and inked up the inside of it on the side where the stars are depressed.  I inked it up with Blueprint Sketch and Candied Apple.  Then you spray the inked folder numerous times, insert your water color paper, close the folder up and run it through your machine. After it's embossed and you take it out of the folder you will need to take a paper towel to wipe up any excess ink and waalaa.. you are done!

I stamped the silhouette of the soldier, cut the strips, stamped the sentiment and put it all together.  As soon as I was done I showed it to my 17 year old son and he said "I like this" I asked him if he would like it and he was "oh yes!".  He asked me to stamp the back of it and took it to his room.  That makes me one very happy Momma!!

Have fun inking up your embossing folders and make some cards with your embossed pieces.


SUPPLIES:

card stock:  white, red and  SU Brillant Blue
stamps:  Stampin' UP! For Your Country
ink: Versafine Black ink, Distress Inks Blueprint Sketch and Candied Apples
accessories: Scor-Pal, Darice Stars embossing folder, Scor-Tape and Foam Tape

Day 5. Dylusion's Ink Sprays "MISS YOU LIKE CRAZY" card using My Favorite Things Stamps & Dies

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 5 coloring project.



A year or two ago I bought three 2 packs of Dylusion's Ink Sprays. I hadn't even opened the packages until earlier today.  I sprayed a big piece of watercolor paper and a smaller one.  The one I used on the card is the smaller piece. I sprayed Orange and Blue and then one of the White. The White seemed to blotch up the texture.  I wasn't really sure what to do with the pieces because I really didn't like the way they turned out. I didn't want to waste it,so I made something up.    

I used a My Favorite things Scallop border die and used the negative of the cut. I stamped the "Miss you like crazy" sentiment using a stamp from a My Favorite Things Bold Statements stamp set.  I added some orange brads and that's about it.
