Pajama Party…

Hello

Hope your week is going well.

There is a Pajama Party on at Waltzing Mouse Stamps

I took this sketch and flipped it so the circles are on the right side of the image

I am also linking to  the challenge at Muse

Muse Challenge #89

This is an attempt for me to use some of the patterned paper I have collected.

Thank you Therese for the inspiration.

Before I started I consulted Ms 9 on which image she liked best and colours to use.

She chose the elephant from WMS Half Pint Heroines which I stamped onto blending cs with memento tuxedo black and coloured with alcohol markers.  I chose some patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Mini deck Baby Jane to create the card front and banners. I added SU Pool Party ribbon. The sentiment chosen by Ms 9 is from the same set again stamped with memento tuxedo black and popped up with foam tabs. I used a 1 1/4″ circle punch and layered into on Artisan label punch. The banners are a mix of free hand cut and the SU Banner punch. After playing with buttons and paper flowers I settled on hearts punched from the patterned paper with SU itty Bitty Accents heart punch and finished with some glossy accents.

 Today I’ve booked tickets to the girl’s dance concert in November then I joined a relatively new group of friends at the local library for 2 hours of crafty time. These ladies are so inspiring. I am in awe of one lady who is 95 hand stitches beautifully, doesn’t wear glasses and is more mobile than some half her age.  I wish she would share her secret 🙂  We come together in the middle of the library for 2 hours (or whatever we can spare) and do a crafty project with a cuppa and a chat. Some are making hand stitched quilts, one lady makes envelopes freehand, some crochet and some knit. Today I started a doll from Knitted Babes – Claire Garland. Here is a link to the ravelry page

Some have been creating for a long time others are new and come to learn.  Miss 9 had so much fun coming with me in the recent school holidays I have to take her crafty projects for show and tell so the group can see what she has been creating.

Until next time

Thanks for stopping by

I have used Waltzing Mouse Half Pint Heros coloured with alcohol markers. I cut my shape using Fiskars shape cutter and template – about time they were shown some love.  I sponged using Stampin UP! Pacific Point, The card stock is from My Minds Eye Party Time – something else needing some love.  The red stars are die cut from PTI die in Stampin UP! real red. Lastly the lovely buttons are hand made from Jane of http://janesdoodles.blogspot.com.au/. I was lucky to get some happy mail last week. They are lovely and bright perfect for this card.

I have had a great day watching primary school children sing, dance, act and the odd joke at a performing arts afternoon. Miss A did a good job in the choir. Miss S had her first dance concert for the weekend earlier – off to see that tomorrow night.

Enjoy your weekend

Pajama Party…

Waltzing Mouse Stamps are having a Pajama Party this weekend. Last week I received my first order of their stamps so I’m joining in. Warning this is pic heavy!

Challenge 1 – Knot or twine

IMG_3662

I have used Half Pint Heroines stamped onto various papers including Kaisercraft La Di Da Collection 6″ paper pad and scrap papers and fussy cut.  I masked the clouds and sponged on some colour. I then used glitter for the clouds – it needed a bit of sparkle! The sentiment is from Half Pint Heros and is punched using Stampin UP! Modern Label punch. I also used Calypso coral cardstock. This challenge needed a knot or twine. I used some twine from the Rusty Rose on the hot air balloon.

Challenge 2 – Nautical

IMG_3663

I used Half heros coloured with alcohol markers. I made the life buoy using 1 3/4″ and 1 1/8″ circle punches and scraps of cardstock.  I added twine from Hemptique which is threaded through a button from my stash.

Challenge 3 – Colour Challenge

I used stamps from Teeny Trees stamped in Stampin UP! Basic Black, Pacific Point, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler. The mount cardstock is pacific point.

Challenge 4 – Oldest stamp or oldest WMS

IMG_3666

I think my oldest stamp is a Stampin UP! wood mount seeing spots. I still use it sometimes but seeing in this challenge I could opt to use my oldest WMS and seeing I only just got mine I had to ink up another set. For this card I used Eat Cake with silver and white embossing powder some punched flowers (punch brand unknown), some rhinestones and Pacific point ink and cardstock.

Another pic – bit hard to get a pic of the white embossing.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping.
