DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #112

THEME:   PATRIOTIC


                                                                         




The papers I used are  AC card stock and DCWV and the cricut cartridge I used is Stand and Salute.

That is from memory because I made this card 2 years ago. 

I spent two hours with the silhouette this evening and nothing seemed to come out the way I wanted it to and I really needed to get to bed, I was so super tired. 
Because this is one of my old cards I won't be entering this in any challenges, but I may case it tomorrow and enter it in something. I hope you like the card even though it is old and I hope I have inspired you to enter the challenge.

Good Morning Friends,


The roofers came back yesterday to touch up the nicks and marks they had made to the paint on the house, but then they had to leave, do to the rain.
I got in my art room once yesterday.  There are lots of building codes and rules in CA., so to get the roof signed off, it is necessary to have smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in various places in the house.  When our  home was built it was up to code, but the laws have changed since, so my hubs spent the day putting the alarms in.  So now we are up to code -- and now, Wednesday  I can get back in my art room. I have a busy day today. I stayed up late last night to make this card and get a few visits in.

My card has nothing to do with the painting of the house, except that I would love my hubs to fly away with me somewhere,  I would love for us to go on  a vacation.

Papertrey ink June blog hop challenge



I used PTI  true black, aqua mist. the butterfly print paper is DCWV mariposa.  The Ink I used for the sentiment is memento tuxedo black. I inked the edges of the tag with encore metallic gold ink. The butterfly embellishment is from creative charms.

 

The sentiment stamp is from up up and away.


Have a blessed day, Diana

Happy Monday morning,

The roofers are finished.  Now, for the touch up on the paint, there were are few areas where it just could not be avoided. The last four years have been one major repair after another. Now we are hoping to have some peace and quiet for awhile. This morning I was able to peacefully make this card. Except it is raining, perfect timing to have the roof finished. Now, we can find out how good of a job they did. Funny how that works.
When we first moved in this home we had a lot of roof leaks even though it was a new home, it had gone through the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989 (the one most people call the San Francisco earthquake). The epicenter was actually 6 miles from where we live.
Do you have any drippy roof stories?

Oh Happy Day!!!

Good Morning Friends,

Whenever, I hear those three words I start singing that song. I am singing it right now.  Sing it with me if you know the words. 
Anyway, I hope you all have a "happy day". I am really late with my MOJO this week, but that is a good thing, because  Before I made the calendar card I looked around to see what other challenges I could work it into, now I have made it fit some other challenges.  For Moxie fab it was mixed patterns.  If you look closely, you will notice I have 11 patterns on this card. It took awhile to get them to work.  I switched out quite a few. I was trying to work from my scraps to-- That was my own personal challenge 
The paper I used is  MME's Lost and found-- Rosy and I think I put of few scraps from Carta Bella Beloved.
The sentiment and flower stamp is from Happiness in Bloom. The bow is made from a piece of burlap thread that was on my work space. The print was done with a sharpie marker and a Sakura white gel pen.
I used momento Tuxedo black ink on the vellum flower and colored the stamped image in with copic markers. Tim Holtz walnut stain  around the lightest piece of paper

Good Morning Friends,

I have had the Tim Holz Alterations in the bag Die for sometime, and I thought this might be a quick way to make some goodie bags.  The stamp is from Docerela " Je t'aime Paris. The three elements to the right are skittles from my friend Carri's shop, you can get them here. The burlap is from  my huge stash left over from an art exhibit. I have a show coming up next month. So I will be very busy in the next few weeks doing production type stuff, but also trying to keep everything unique and one of a kind except for multiples  ( like dozen of something order).


The  twine is from the Twinery, from shop Pumpkin Spice  when I was on the design team


 Here is a side view so you can see it is a bag, also it is a good wight, not a flimsy little bag

Challenges:
Docerela: use Kraft
Simon Says stamp and show: Kraft

Hi Friends,

Fathers day has come and gone, but you can still make a guy card. I have some more inspiration  for you.

DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #111

THEME:   Fathers day/ or card for a man


                                                                         
 Do you find making guy cards difficult?

Challenge yourself

Remember  last week I told you,  this past march I was at the scrapbook expo in Pleasanton.  I took a work shop from a woman  named Michelle who owns Avocado Arts stamps.  Wonderful whimsical stamps. "The perfect blend" was  the stamp set I received for part of the class kit.  I love it. When I got home I was able to order the cut file for the dies that match the stamps.   I  die cut every single stamped image and I have almost used everyone from the stamp set with these three cards.


The strip of paper is from AC Studio Calico, darling dear with gingerbread crinkle ribbon from  My Craft Spot. I used Jenni Bowlin malted milk to stamp the cup. The heart and the tea bag are colored with copic markers.   Does this look like a face with lips? It does to me.


I used Kraft card stock for the base, PTI dark chocolate ink and green copic marker to color in the cup. I used the cup dots to add the design to the take-out cup. I used a die to cute the flower shape out of the burlap. The flower brad is from making memories

The papers I used are recollection
the Base card stock is PTI,
ink is PTI dark chocolate

Hi Friends,

The roofers are still at it.  Can you believe it I took a nap, while all that was going on.  The hammering is noisy, but not that bad. They are really nice, there is one guy who keeps singing, he has a beautiful voice. Last year we had the singing painters, this year the singing roofers. How blessed can a person be?



I had so much fun with the zentangle I did another in color and other elements to fit some other challenges.

Good Morning Friends,

The roofers arrived at 7:15!!!  They are not as noisy as I anticipated. GOOD NEWS!!

My Mondays are usually peaceful and quiet.  Monday is the day of the week I normally keep to myself and rejuvenate for the week.


The flowers are embossed with white embossing powder and then I colored each one with PTI Kraft, canyon clay and winter wisteria. I used a cuddle bug folder for the embossed background (I have no idea which one)on stampers select white. the flowers are placed on PTI lavender moon with ribbon from my stash. The stamps and the sentiment are from beautiful blooms. I used brads from my stash for the centers of the flowers. All this is on top of an A2 card base of enchanted evening.



I stamped the leaves with PTI ripe avocado on heavy vellum and then I fussy cut them out

 I absolutely love how this card came out, although my fingers are ripe avocado.  The ink smears on the vellum. Next time, I will give it a day to dry before fussy cutting.

Good Morning Friends,


Happy Monday, it is early in the wee hours. We are getting a new roof today the roofers will arrive in less than 7 hours so I thought I better get this post in and get some sleep before they show up.  I have no idea what my day will hold, but I think it is going to be noisy...
I am still working on getting the guest room cleared out.

The  image on my card was a basic stamp of a cupcake from serendipity stamps ,  all the design that is on the cupcake is zentangle, organized doodling. For the zentangle, basically I basically used alphabets, can you pick them out?

I am entering this in a zentangle challenge at Serendipity Stamps


I used basic black SU taffeta ribbon, on PTI's lavender moon, mounted on an A2 card base of true black. The sentiment is also serendipity stamps. The ink is versamark onyx black.

Hi Friends,

I know  I have been MIA---- so sorry. Here is a video for you. I have just been super busy.  We are getting a new roof on Monday, so clearing the attic out was a must.  We gave almost every thing that was in there, to the women's shelter and Good will.  I am exhausted and now I am working on the guest bedroom.

I also found a hornets nest in the storage area off our dining room deck - eeks!! I don't care for them that much.

Yesterday when I came home   I found a fawn sleeping on my porch



Be blessed, Diana

Hi Friends,
I totally missed my MOJO last week
So, I will make up for it this week, and get it done early . Last weeks sketch was easier.
Still just the same, they are my favorite sketches.  I may start looking at the CAS sketches in the future, along with the MOJO.

We were so cold here along the coast yesterday. I don't think we got over 62 degrees, the weather folks had promised us 78.   It is looking like the same kind of weather today








I used Kate's kitchen for the daddy chef 


For the camper background I used the Good Old days cart, for the banner I cut it out of scrap and used a sharpie marker to write Happy fathers day on it!!
My green dotted background paper is MME lost and found Rosy.  The black triangle border shapes are from a Martha Stewart border punch. The scallop circle is from the basic shapes in the imagine machine and the color fill is from the good old days PTI Kraft card stock for my base.

Enjoy!!

June is a quieter month on the birthday front for our family. However, I do have one nephew with a Birthday, toward the end of the month.  This card came together so quickly, I may make another one or two or three.

Here is how I put it together:

Base PTI Kraft card stock 5.5 x 8.5
fold in half
cut one piece 5 x 4 PTI fine line- You will be stamping on this piece
when you stamp make sure you overlap each stamp on to the previous one
Use PTI stamp set Happiness in Bloom
start stamping 1 1/2 inches from top at right side of card stock
Top Happy stamp in Jenny Bowlin soap powder
middle happy stamp in JB soap powder and denim ( with the majority of the color still light but darker than the previous color
bottom happy stamp in JB denim
underneath all the Happy's use PTI dark chocolate and stamp birthday
On the left side stamp the image in soap powder 5 times tie three layers of twine (mine is from queen and co.
ATG tape it on to the base and your ready to go.

Hi Everyone,

I felt like making a fathers day card.  My father passed away years ago, but I still have fond memories of him  and he was one of a kind. So this card is to him and probably for a few challenges out there.

I used my scraps from MME Indie Chic nutmeg and added them to a PTI stampers select  (white) base, and the pennants were cut from sketched shapes die set.
Don't you just love it when scraps work out so well?




The stamp set I used was "Deep in the Woods"
from The Alley Way stamps with versamark onyx black ink

Challenges:
TAWS: photo inspired
Crazy 4 challenges: Fathers day
HIMCR: super scrap Saturday!!
MIM: AG
My sherie crafts: summet solstice



Have a great and blessed Sunday everyone, Diana.

WINNER OF THE DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY MAY LINKY CHALLENGE


CLICK HERE for the DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY JUNE LINKY CHALLENGE,  ending 11:55pm PST June 30, 2013




Good Morning Friends,

I am a day late on this month also, (just like last month) because I had a design team post yesterday. I really don't want to let the team down. This was quite a busy week. It was a lot of back and forth to the car repair center. The AC went out, they can't pin point the problem it has been in 2x now and back in next week, when the part will arrive, that they "think" will fix the problem.  yeah!! I hope they are right.  Isn't it Murphy's law, summer is coming up and it is going to be AC weather.
My car is purring like a kitten (hint), but  this is the Hubster's car- Glad to be of service to him
