Meant to Behave Cat

Hello all!  I have a short post to share today.

Isn't this cat just the cutest??  I didn't want to go with the toilet paper shortage kind of card, but instead something just for fun.  I found this image at Ikes Art Facebook Page.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  I used a layout from a really old papercrafts magazine as a jumping off point since I've been struggling with creativity lately.

I added just a touch of glaze, but for the most part kept this flat for mailing.  So that is it from me!  Thank you for taking a look and have a wonderful week.

This meets the following challenges: Ike's World: Round/Dots (or Anything Goes), Show Us Your Pussycats: Furrything Goes, Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, and 2 Crafty Critter Cazies: Anything Goes with a Critter.

Mermaid from Outer Space Card

Hello all!  Today I'm here to share a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge blog: Anything Goes.

I'm featuring a stamp by Oddball Art titled Mermaids from Outer Space.  I actually tried to make the entire background, using distress inks.  I've used inks before, but I also put in stars and for me, to freehand anything is a really big deal.  Plus, I did a bit of heat embossing but I obviously chose the wrong color.
I should have maybe went with a white, or....I don't know, but I think the gold sentiment is hard to see.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Trendy Trees.  Either way, I was trying to be a little more adventurous using seldom used inks.

That's it from me today.  Thank you for taking a look and have a wonderful day.  Please join in this month at Corrosive Challenge if you get a chance.

This meets the following challenges:  Digi Choosday: Anything GoesThrough the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, Get Creative: Fantasy, and A Bit More Time to Craft: Anything Goes.


Dad Grillin Father's Day Card

Hello and welcome to June!  I feel like I have missed a lot of time and skipped straight to summer.  I guess with the way things are, it's ok to skip a few days here and there and just move on to 2021.  But for today, I'm sharing a card for the latest Papercraft Business Challenge: Father's Day:


There are lots of images out there but I went with Bugaboo Stamps A Kids View Barbeque since it most closely relates to a dad in my life.

I went really simple and avoided sequins :)  The most I added was a bit of sparkle to the grilling utensils.  The banner and star are popped up, but the rest of the card is flat.  I tried to be as simple as possible I guess as my way of going masculine.

That's it for my simple creation today.  Play along in the challenge for a chance to win a cute Lawn Fawn stamp set.  Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day.

This meets the following challenges:  CRAFT: Masculine (fits in with Dad sentiment and male image), Simon Says Wednesday challenge: Masculine, Use Your Stuff: Masculine (using all stash, nothing new), and Cardz 4 Guyz: Father's Day.

Forest Mouse Sipping Coffee

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  Today I would like to share a card for the latest Anything Goes challenge at Corrosive Challenge blog.

I'm featuring Forest Mouse by Fabrika Fantasy.  I felt this mouse looked wise, holding his cup, so I tried to match a sentiment using Stampin' Up's Sip by Sip.  I've been going through my stash - it's almost like shopping for something new since I can't actually visit a store - and found a pack of doilies also from Stampin' Up.  I don't believe I have ever used a doily on a card before, so this is new for me.

I'm not sure if you can see, but I added some thin gold twine beneath his feet.  Mouse is popped up while the rest of the card is flat.  I've made this for a "friend" and hope to get it out this week.  I've been lazy about getting cards out in the mail lately, but feel this is the best time to do so, so I'm going to try my best to put a smile on a few faces soon.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope good health to all.

This meets the following challenges:  Crafty Creations: Anything Goes, Fab n Funky: Cute Critters, Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.


Mother's Day Ladybugs and Flowers Fancy Fold

Hello and welcome to May!  I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy.

Today I'm here to share a card for the latest Papercraft Business Challenge: Anything Goes.  Always an easy one!

I'm featuring Ladybug Floral Collage from Bugaboo stamps along with a sentiment from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  I haven't used kraft in a long time, but I think it works.  I added a few swirly dies and gems for fun - and some glaze that you can't see in the photo.

Also, I managed another fancy fold from CardzTV.  Her videos are straight forward and easy to do.  I know it looks a little crooked in the photo, but it's actually straight and holds up well.

So please join in the Papercraft Challenge if you get a chance.  It runs all month long.

This meets the following challenges:  CardzTV: Anything Goes #113, Cute Card Thursday: Feminine, Krafty Chicks: Anything Goes, and Watercooler Wednesday: Anything Goes.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation.
