Stampin Up's Mixed Bunch

Hey, Happy Thursday. Funny finding me posting on a Thursday, huh? Well, I have lost a couple of followers, which makes me sad, so maybe if I post more often, I will get more of them. "Post, and they will come", a little voice told me. Yes, I know, I am just way too funny. As you know I love Stampin Up products along with many other products out there in the crafty world. I haven't posted anything Stampin Up in a looooooooooooooooooong time. They had this stamp set called Mixed Bunch, that has a coordinating punch! Yay, love punches! It just so happens that the Clean and Simple Blog has a sketch this week that works awesome with these stamps and it is very quick and simple to make. Here is the sketch:
Here is the card that I made with it:
Hope you like it! Until next time................Blessings, Lisa

Stamp-n-doodle Wednesday!

Hello, welcome to Stamp-n-doodle Day! Since we are starting with some new DT ladies and a new posting schedule, please be patient with us if we are not all on the same page yet. Keep watching the company blog for all the details. The challenge this week is to make a masculine card! This one is always a challenge for me as I am sure it is for all of you, especially women. We ladies seem to like to embellish our creations with lots of pretty papers, ribbon, buttons, faux pearls and gems, you know, girly stuff! So, I kept my card extremely simple this week, a little masculine paper, masculine colors, some dry embossing and of course I couldn't help myself I used a few sticky gems (in a masculine color of course). I used the image called "Puddle Jumper", and here is my creation with it:
Don't forget to go visit the Stamp-n-doodle blog, you will find a link on my sidebar. Please join in the challenge and maybe you will win some freebies. Until next time..............blessings, Lisa

Soft Pencil Tuesday!

Welcome to Soft Pencil Tuesday! Stamp-n-doodle Day has been changed to Wednesdays! As you may remember, Soft Pencil Studios has more than just Digital images now, they have stickers, rub-ons, clear stamps! Love them all! I decided to make a couple of scrapbook pages using one of the sticker sheets called "Best Friends" in Blue. I thought it would make some cute baby pages for my nephew's baby pictures. Now that he is all grown up, I am starting a scrapbook of his pictures. Ha Ha, better late than never. I actually already made one of him, but gave it to him as a gift. So this one is for myself. Anyhoo, here is the first page:
Here is an enlargement of one of the stickers:
This is page number two:
Once again an enlargement of one of the stickers:
Last but not least, this is what happens when you try to take photos of your creations on the floor and you own a kitty: Couldn't resist posting this one.
Now, go visit the other DT ladies blogs, and leave them some love, then go visit the Soft Pencil Studios Blog where you will find a link to their store! Look on my sidebar for links to the other blogs! Until next time..........Blessings, Lisa

Soft Pencil Tuesday!

Welcome back to Soft Pencil Tuesday! I created a card today with the image "Michu and his Mom", for Mother's Day! I usually color Michu gray, I think because my own kitty (Mittens) that ran away last year is gray. So, I tried very hard to step out of my comfort zone today. Hope you like it.
The pretty papers that I used in the background are from Colorbok, the rest are from Stampin Up. The sentiment is also from Stampin Up. Of course I had to embellish a little, so I used on of the butterfly stickers from Soft Pencil Garden Friends sticker sheet. Love their stickers, I am going to order more real soon, so keep visiting my blog for more inspiration using them! Now go visit the other DT ladies blogs for more Soft Pencil inspiration! Until next time...........Blessings, Lisa

Stamp-n-doodle Tuesday!

Welcome to Stamp-n-doodle Tuesday! Lynne has created some new Mother's Day images and put them in the store, so we are showing one of them to give you some Mother's Day inspiration! This image is called "Cooking", it reminds me of me and my grandmother. I spent so very much time with her growing up, I am very blessed! Here it is:
I colored the image with Stampin Up markers, Copic Markers and some SU pastels for a soft background around the image. The paper and card stock is all Stampin Up. The two types of ribbon has been in my stash forever, it from Making Memories. The interesting embellishment on the ribbon has a unique story. It is a button that I cut the back off of. One day after we moved last summer, I found a little baggie full of buttons. I have absolutely no memory of where it came from, but it is fabulous! I had to chop the back off of alot of them, and then they were ready to use. There is such a huge variety, I felt like I got a new toy! Here is a picture of them all:
Gotta love them! Go visit the other SND DT ladies blogs then join in the weekly challenge on the SND blog to win free digi images! I gotta go. Come back later today for Soft Pencil Tuesday! Until next time..............Blessings, Lisa

Soft Pencil Tuesday

Welcome to Soft Pencil Tuesday! Elizabeth is releasing some Mother's Day digital images, so I thought I would create something with one of them to help inspire you. I used Michu and Ratiny in a heart. The great thing about this one is that you could also use it next year on Valentine's day!
