Birthday Turqouise & Cocoa Combo

Howdy! Since all of my other projects are still in my head making big plans, I thought I would post this birthday card instead. I added Mr. Owl with dimentionals, but he still doesn't pop off the card enough. I think I will go back and add some Glossy Accents to him, and maybe outline the Happy B-day squares too.

Some more shots of the details and the inside~

For the bottom, inside border, I used the "negative" of the oval chain die cut. It was the left-over just crying out to be used. (The peaks from the scallop die cut were too close together.)

My working surface was just as organized as this photo depicts. I swear.

Acrylic block: Lawn Fawn
Ribbon, Michael’s Crafts
Ballpoint-tip glue pen, Martha Stewart
Foam tape used for owl, Scotch Mounting Squares, cut to size
Dies: My Favorite Things, Simply Scallops & Oval Chain Border
Cling Stamps: Stampin'Up Punch Bunch **(Sale-A-Bration); Create a Cupcake
Ink: Stampin’Up Classic, in Tempting Turquoise & Close to Cocoa
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Aqua Mist
Patterned paper: K & Company, Best of Brenda Walton
**note: Sale-A-Bration stamp set is only available as purchase w/purchase.

I realize this post is kind of "dry" but I just don't know what to do about it! I have got to get going! If you have any questions, just ask. :)

Glittery Chipboard Letters and a Giggle~

Chipboard letters can be made into anything, they are a fantastic starting point for any number of ideas -especially in Blogland. These glittery LOVE letters were created by none other than Miss Mustard Seed in preparation for Lucketts Fair next week. They are even magnetic! MMS is so generous that she even shares her methods, tips, supply specifics and ideas for creating such letters in this video posted on her blog. After watching you will feel absolutely brilliant with knowledge and totally inspired! Thank you Miss Mustard Seed!

And now on to the day's giggle. A use maybe you haven't thought about for those chipboard letters... :)

Working with a Dark & Beautiful Face and Showing Off My New Chair!

Hi, I'm Staxie! ~Here to tell you that I do indeed have a beautiful face, even though you cannot really see it! My body is beautiful too, if you were wondering. And, today, I have something new to show you - I have a new chair!! My mom thinks it is a photography prop, but I plan to use it when my family isn't even around...... Want to see it? Here it is...

I swear, that is me! Giving a shadow a run for it's money. We tried the flash, but it just turned my eyes blue. And since the gray clouds are not allowing much light through the sky light, this is as good as it gets.

I am sharing my chair over at Lucy's Party at Debbiedoos. Come see all of my furry friends! Hope to see you there!

ALSO... a quick note from Peanut. "I know, not the best quality pic of me -I am actually WAY more photogenic.... So let's just go with it~ Happy Cinco de Mayo!"

Mother’s Day Inspiration via Lawn Fawn's Video Series

Well, seeing as I have not yet come up with a Mother’s Day card to share, and that MD is this coming Sunday... I thought I would share a creation from Lawn Fawn's "Lawn Clippings" series on YouTube! In creating this card, 5 stamps sets are used. Yep, I said, 5. How often are you able to incorporate that many all in one card? FYI: stamp sets used: Lunar Lights, Critters in the Forest, Fly Free, Say Cheese and Say Cheese.

This is such a cute idea! The designer creates a Polaroid photo card, “developing” right before your eyes. Her card size fits a standard size business envelope, great for first class postage and the video is entertaining as she shares her thought process and ideas. Enjoy!
