Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight

Thanks for joining me today at  Kitty Bee Designs. Today I'm sharing a Halloween card for my spotlight day-

Isn't this little cow adorable? This Pumpkin Cow (colored with Copics) is mounted on a spider web easel card from Bird's Cards. If you are able to cut SVG's, everything on Bird's web site are FREE! The spider web highlights Pumpkin Cow beautifully! The bats are from Spellbinders, the sentiment from Unity Stamps, and the stopper was made using My Favorite Things Pierced Rounded Rectangles.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

Kitty Bee Designs Challenge #57-Buttons

Today is Kitty Bee Designs Challenge #57-Buttons! I had a blast going through several button boxes that belonged to my Mom & Grandmother. So many old and beautiful buttons, along with some wonderful memories. Today's challenge is sponsored by-


So make sure you enter our challenge! Here is my card-

Here is a list of materials-
  1. Paper-beige cardstock, patterned paper by Jillibean Soup.
  2. Stamps-Unity Stamp Co. (sentiment), Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous (dress form).
  3. Ink-Versafine black onyx.
  4. Buttons-stash.
  5. Sewing machine with black thread.
I like the texture of the beige paper under the dress form, and the old buttons and patterned paper remind me of vintage dresses my grandmother liked. She was a professional seamstress, and passed on the love of sewing to my mother, and then to me.

Thank you for visiting!

JAS Wedding Card

At Just A Scrappin' this week, the challenge is to make a wedding card. Here is my project-

Very, very simple to make! The white panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug Damaskene embossing folder (part of the Cricut Sentimentals collection). I cut the sentiment with my Cricut using the Artiste cartridge, then used a Spellbinders die (Labels 16) to die cut around the negative space. Then I  cut a larger die in a color that matched my ribbon.

The great thing is that the label shadow and ribbon can be changed to suit any wedding decor color!

Thanks for visiting!

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers-F is for Fart Challenge!

I have the best time with the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! I was chosen to be Queen, and I get to be Guest Designer for this challenge-

Oh, how much fun! Here is a card I made for the F is for Fart Challenge-

Pretty simple card to make! I found both the Betty Boop image and the joke on the internet! After I printed everything, I used an OLD Stampin' Up word bubble stamp for the question. I used Studio Calico's Wanderlust paper for the front along with the yellow 1/8" ribbon, and the inside I used the same paper to frame the image and sentiment. Spellbinders circles die cut the window.

I hope you enjoyed this card!

SoSS-I is for Image!

I just had to participate in this challenge!! At Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers the challenge is I is for Image-no sentiments on the front! Well, I made a penny slider card with some OLD paper I found in one of my many stashes-

I have no idea who made this paper, but it used to be 12" x 12". I bought it to document some of the dumb stuff my husband used to do! The image is by Artistic Impressions and colored with Copics.
And on the inside, snark of course!

And boy is that true with nurses! Always poking and prodding you! Here is a little video of the card in action-

I took a video of this to show you how funny it looks rolling through the card -it took a while
 but I finally got this sucker posted!
