Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight post-June

Hello! Today I'm sharing with you a masculine birthday card using the Hello Pup from Kitty Bee Designs!

I colored the image with Copics, and used My Favorite Things Dies (Stitched Squares, Stitched circles) to cut out the sentiment (Avery Elle, Thanks a Bunch set) and image. I have no idea who made the large plaid paper because it's been in my stash forever! The sand cardstock is Bazzill, dark grey is Recollections, light grey is DCWV Black Currant stack. I also added a small bit of glue to the dog tag and used gold decofoil to make the tag nice and shiny. I didn't add any additional embellishments because guys really don't care about those things-thank goodness. Nice & Simple!

Thanks for visiting.

V is for Vroom!

At  Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, the challenge is V for Vroom! Make a project with two or four wheels, and here is my project:

I wanted to do something different, so I chose an easel card. There are a ton of tutorials out there if you've never made one. Here's the process I did:

  1. Make easel card. I used Wild Asparagus cardstock.
  2.  I covered the easel portion with the blue polka dot paper, and added clouds from the Cricut Groovy Times cartridge. The motorcycle is also on the same cartridge, and this was cut @ 2 3/4" out of scrap paper.
  3. The easel "stop" I made by stamping the road from Papertrey Inks School Time set onto black cardstock, and embossing in white. Use pop dots to elevate the road.
  4. Sentiment is from my OLD Creative Memories Mod collection, cut in half and positioned on right hand side of card.
It's kinda fun making a different type of card, don't you agree?

Shopping our Stash Coffee or Tea challenge

Shopping our Stash has a Coffee or Tea challenge! Which saved this poor little canvas from getting thrown away. Probably 4-5 years ago, I painted the canvas and added the coffee cup (Cut with my Cricut). Then I couldn't figure out what to do with it, and so put it away. Here is how I finished it-

I found a stash of Zva Creative rhinestone flourished that I had hidden from myself (arrgghhh!). I thought they resembled steam. The sentiment is actually one that I have on a tea towel! That would cut using my Cricut as well, using a font I found on the internet. I love brown and teal color combos!

Thanks for visiting.

SoSS Not a Card Challenge!

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers are having the N Challenge-not a card! So I thought this would be a good time to make a present for my brother, who is a CNA-

(Disclaimer: the following contains profanity and gross situations. Continue at your own risk!)

Here is my project:

He has told me so many stories about patients, I thought I would add just a few of the things patients have actually told him! And of course, after I was done I thought of a bunch more! I found the picture of the hospital on the internet, and cut it up to resemble one of those days when the shit hits the fan over and over again! The word bubbles are from Stampin' Up (one of those 99 cent deals at Goodwill!), the nurse is from Art Impressions and colored with copics. The main word bubble is an Action Wobble stamped with words from the Oh Hell No set from Snarky Stamps.

I hope he likes it!
