LCI Grand Finale!!


Mornin' hens!  I'm so sad about today's post, as this is Ladybug Crafts Ink grand finale.  Kerry has decided to close her store and has invited all past and present DT members to participate in this last challenge.  The challenge is "use your favorite image".  You'll want to check out the LCI website too because Kerry's having a phenomenal sale! 


Ok, so I dug through my LCI collection and found this little ol guy from the Wrinkley's collection.  Isn't he cute with his little combover!!  Bwah-ha-ha-ha!  I stamped the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and color him with my Copics.  Then I stamped the image onto two patterned papers for both the chair and the rug and paper pieced the image together on the card base, and embossed the stamped sentiment below.  To finish, I rounded the corners and added some Glossy Accents to his spectacles.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today!  Don't forget to pop on over to the LCI website and check out the sale!  You can never have too many stamps right??  Tee-hee!!

Happy Birthday Ene!

Mornin' hens!  Today is my co-worker Ene's birthday!  Ok, so if you haven't figured it out by now, I've got lots of birthdays occurring in August/September.  LOL!  Oh, and there's more coming....


This is one of the new Art Impression stamps that are available in Michaels.  I think there are 5 in all, and yes, I have them!!  Tee-hee!  Oh, I could never resist an Art Impressions stamp!  Love 'em!  I think Ene will love this one!  Ok, so I started by stamping the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored it with my Copics.  I created the clouds by die cutting a cloud template and then sponged some distress ink lightly on the top.  I repeated this several times until the background was complete.   Next, I cut the image out and adhered it with a few foam dimensionals.  To finish, I rounded the corners and stamped the sentiment on a die cut flag.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a GREAT day!  {{{hen hugs}}}

Happy Birthday Bayley!

Mornin' hens! Today is my Grand-dog Bayley's birthday.  He's a white lab and is just the cutest fur baby ever!  I wanted to use a stamp that sort of resembled him, so I dug through my stash and found this one from Eat Cake Graphics and I thought it was perfect!   OMG, is this card too cute or what?  Love, love, love it!  And it's SO Bayley too!! LOL! 


I stamped the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored it with my Copics.  I cut the image out using my Nesties and sponged some chalk ink around the edges.  Here's a tutorial on this if you haven't seen it.  Then I stitched around the edges of each panel and tied some grosgrain ribbon around the middle.  


I added some Glossy Accents to his mask and water splashes, and then rounded the bottom corners.  To finish, I stamped the sentiment and added a few DIY enamel dots.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today. I hope you have a GREAT day!  {{{hen hugs}}}

Happy Birthday LouLou!

Mornin' hens!  Today is my good friend LouLou's birthday!  She has an adorable four legged friend named Ginger so when I saw this stamp in the dollar bin at Michaels, I knew I had to have it for her birthday card.  


This was a super simple card to put together and I thought it turned out adorable! I stamped the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored it with Copics.  Then I cut the image out and adhered it to the card base using a few foam dimensionals.  I added some grounding using my Prismacolor pencils. Then I used a curved edge die and cut the bottom edge of the balloon from some polka dot DP.  I adhered this piece with foam dimensionals as well, then I trimmed the top edge of the balloon to match the top edge of the card.  


 I free hand cut a triangle and attached it to the bottom of the balloon and attached some string to it and to the pup's paw too!  To finish, I stamped the sentiment and added some faux stitching.
That's it for me today!  I hope you have a GREAT day!  {{{hen hugs}}}
