Coding…

Hello

Today I am sharing my card for the current Challenge at Unstampabelles here

Layering and borders

Here is my card

“0

I used ME Pizzaz pieces (my border die), Memory Box Classic numbers, PTI birthday die and Stamplorations Happy die cut from fun foam.

Now if you have followed me for a while you will know a lot of my cards are made as per my Kiddos requests.  This one was no exception.  However it is not as first requested.  Mr M (19) requested a 21st card with the sentiment “Happy 21st Birthday” in computer coding – a series of “0” and “1”‘s that computers speak in. I started die cutting the mammoth task of all those 0’s and 1’s to quickly realise it wasn’t going to fit onto an A4 card front easily – then one of the dies moved whilst cutting even while using tape. The solution cut the panel down and put it on a normal size cut front as a background and add the die cut sentiment.  Mr M was still happy.

Hope you get a chance to play in this challenge there are still a couple of weeks to go.

Until next time

Cheers

Julie Nutting party girl…

Hello

Today I am sharing a card made using Julie Nutting Party Girl stamp set.

I stamped the image from Julie Nutting Party Girl stamp set onto express it card stock and coloured with copic markers. The sentiment is from PTI Birthday Tags. I mounted the coloured image onto black cardstock and SU pattern paper. I was taking reference to the quote on the SBB mood board along with the pastel colours.

A little Easter Treat or 7…

Hello

Are we all in a sugar coma this morning?

I think some people at my place might be!

The April challenge at Unstampabelles is on now here

Unstampabelles Challenges

To ‘die’ for…….

TWIST  add a bird or two or three….

Yes, there is a Prize – two small die sets

IO Dies – Bunnies
AND
Cheery Lyn Dies – chicks
I made these for my Kiddos + Ms S’s boyfriend and his siblings – 7 in total for Easter. They were filled with flavoured eggs, smartie mini eggs and milkybar mini eggs. So for a little box you can fit a decent amount of yummy goodies.
They were pretty quick to make with 6″ x 6″ paper and the gift box punch board.
I made the tags using PTI die (and those little bits of white cs I know you must have about too!) and ABS Cuts by design Easter Chickadee (now Sprinkleberry).  This die set does have a co ordinating stamp but as this is a no stamp challenge I hand drew the wings and eyes.
Now I am back to reality tomorrow with 6.30 am athletics training, work/school and then swim squad to round out the day. It is going to be tough getting up.
Thanks for stopping
Until next time

What have I been upto?…

Hello

Well we are nearly to the end of the school holidays and I have not been as productive as I would have liked!

I have a long list of projects and I am not ticking them off fast enough! Sound like anyone else?

I have finished these

Perfect fit socks you can find the pattern here

and started this

Been working on this

And a couple of cards for a friend in my knitting group.

I used SU Number of Years stamps and dies.

I have my Easter baskets/boxes to make. On the to do list for today.

For my last birthday a few months back my kiddos gave me 2 close up encounters at Melbourne Zoo.  I chose Giraffe and Squirrel Monkey.  So yesterday hubby, myself, 4 kiddos + Ms S’s boyfriend all spent the day at the zoo so hubby and I could enjoy the encounters.  Yes the kiddos all had to watch from the other side of the fence!  You aren’t allowed to pat them just “stand like a tree”.  They just sit on your arms nibbling their treats.  We did get to give the Giraffe lettuce leaves.  You stand on a platform and they come to you to grab the leaves in their long tongues.  This was over all too fast!

Hope you all have a lovely Easter (if you celebrate the occasion) and you get a little spoilt with yummy goodies.

Until next time

Cheers

My Boo Boo…

Hello

When I saw Darnell’s new Boo Boo challenge and her card I remembered I made this recently perfect to share here.

Head over and check it out.  I also think Darnell took a peek in my craftroom! Mine has a similar look most of the time! Hubby just rolls his eyes when he visits. My answer is if it bothers him so much don’t come in!

Coming April 1-11, 2017

I will also link up to Seize the Birthday current challenge here

My card

Now the Boo Boo may not be obvious at first.  But I did exactly what Darnell did. I placed the pattern paper pattern upside down! The little banners are meant to be more like “W’s” then “M’s”.  Thankfully none of the kiddos critics noticed this.

I used SU Up and Away paper, CS and a NBUS stamp set SU Any Occasion.

Off to do some tiding up so I can play in my room!

Until next time

Cheers

Soccer and a finished knit…

Hello

Popping in to share a quick and easy card as requested by Mr M (19).

I am also linking up to the current challenge at Seize the Birthday here

A pretty quick make.  I die cut a white circle and ran through my honeycomb embossing folder.  I also ran a small piece of black cardstock through and fussy cut a few pieces to add back to make my soccer ball. Popped up with foam tape on my card front and finished with a sentiment from Jane’s Doodles Birthday wishes.

Also sharing a finished knitting project

Nothing like Mum asking you to model when you are on your way out the door to go to work teaching kids to swim.

I used BWM Aurora Stirling

You can find the pattern here

Until next time

A little more sparkle…

Hello

Another kiddo request forefilled and a little more sparkle.

This card is for the current challenge at Unstampabelles this week.

Check out the challenge here

Challenge #66: Use a Punctuation sign in your work somewhere

This means you need to Use a Punctuation Sign somewhere in your work with the TWIST being to be amusing as well –  if possible!

Unstampabelles Challenges

I have used appostrophies in my computer generated sentiment. This was exactly as requested by Ms E (21) for her friend’s 22nd birthday.

Don’t you love the how the sun caught the sparkle of the glimmer paper? The numbers were die cut with my number of years dies and fun foam.

Until next time

Cheers
