Drawn Together ~



Amber of Damask Love has started a fundraiser for the survivors of the school shooting in Newtown, CT.  She's asking for stamps, ink pads, markers, crayons, paper, etc. to help the children and families that have much too much grief to deal with.  If nothing at all, I'm sure that I can clean out some of the supplies that I don't use and donate to this amazing cause.  Please go to Amber's blog to find out more!

Pint of Interest #1 ~

Hey there!  About a week ago, my friend Wida and I decided to take an inspiration photo, make a card and share them on our blogs today.  I’m thinking we may continue this, so we’ve decided to give it a name – Pint of Interest.  This name stems from two things: 1. the first time I saw this pic was on Pinterest, and since that’s where we get a ton of inspiration from, it’s a play on words. 2. “Not really, but kinda” We’re not really, but kinda taking it seriously!  Fun, eh? 

I thought I’d be super crafty and make mine into a Christmas card…you know, kill two birds with one stone type of thing. Here’s our inspiration photo.  I just love these boot socks!  So stinking cute!  I have a similar pair on order – one for myself in aqua and one for my step-daughter in linen.

I took the texture and color of the sock, the buttons and lace as my inspiration.

wida xmas

The base and buttons are Smokey Shadow – a warm grey with lots of brown tones.  The buttons are turned so you can see the writing on them because I liked the extra texture it added.  The button with the bow is a slightly larger size just to draw even more attention to it.  It’s all pretty self explanatory, I think.  The funny thing is that I didn’t even notice all the colors in the quilt that I could have drawn inspiration from until I was typing up this post!  Too funny! 

Here’s where I think I’m really funny though…I made this for Wida and sent it so that she either got it yesterday or today! Ha!  (It’s really Wednesday as I’m typing this, so I don’t know when she got it.  Go me for actually scheduling a post early! lol)  I’m also going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to use your favorite – I love buttons!  I haven’t been using them a ton lately but they are my go to embellishment.

So here’s the fun part, go to Wida’s blog, Beachorado, and check out the fabulousness that she made!  Then stick around and see how fun and amazing her blog is!  Feel free to play along and link up a card you make with this inspiration photo in the comments.  All righty, off to finish a couple more Christmas cards!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  :o) lyss

Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop Day 3~

Welcome back to the Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop!  I have a couple more cards for you today using Stitched Squares, Winter Greetings & the Snowflake Dies.  I absolutely adore these new products!  I love to make square cards and can’t sew…I can’t even thread a needle!  So the stitched squares add just that little extra umph! that takes the card over the edge.  Don’t believe me?  Take a look-see
happy holidays snowflake
This card uses the second and third largest square dies on the red and birch wood layers.  I cut out a square in the rustic cream and lined up the stitches on the birch wood after stamping it with small polka dots.  These are the two smallest snowflakes – the first layer cut out of birch wood and the second in cupid’s bow.  The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly set.  A couple of cream flat backed pearls finish this traditional colored card off.
Now for one that’s a little more bright and fun!
dashing 2
Say hello to raspberry fizz, hawaiian shores and royal velvet all on a smokey shadow base.  Yum!  The focal layer is up on foam tape over the white background.  The darling sentiment is from Winter Greetings.  The embroidery floss is in coordinating colors and is tied in knots to go with the CAS-ual Fridays challenge #81.
Ok, this is a hop, so you should comment for your chance to win a gift certificate to the LID store.  You should have arrived from Jen del Muro’s fabulous blog.  If not, bop on back to Laura Pryor’s to start off in the right direction.  Your next stop on this hop in the incomparable Emily Leiphart!  Have fun!  Thanks for stopping by!  :o) lyss

Lil’ Inker Designs Release Hop Day 2 ~

Hi there!  Hope you’ve arrived from Alicia’s blog which I’m sure was full of wonderful eye candy!  If not, you can bop back to Laura’s blog to get off on the right foot.  Don’t forget to comment here first though for your chance to win a gift certificate to the store!
Ok, so I must start with a disclaimer - I am a snowflake freak!  When Laura asked if the color team wanted to be included in the December release and showed us a preview of these dies, I was sitting at my computer waving my hands in the air.  Pick me!!  I absolutely adore these new dies and have currently made 10 cards with them in the past week.  Granted, some are the same design, but that’s a lot for me to crank out in a short amount of time!  This first one was inspired by a sketch challenge last week.  Just perfect for the fabulously amazing new stitched square dies!
winter greetings sq 
I began by cutting a large square as the mat focal and then cutting the four squares out of the middle of it.  It’s backed with patterned paper and topped with a banner sentiment from the new Winter Greetings set.  Again, in love!  This font is fantabulous!!  The stitched snowflakes actually come on a wired die together and I cut them apart for the ease of using multiples of just one flake on a card.  I think this one is my favorite flake.  :o)
These next two are helping me to use up some of my ridiculously large pattern paper stash.  I always have about a two inch strip leftover of each design, so I came up with this little layout.
dashing
It’s a bit hard to see, but the pp has green dots in it.  I took that color and stamped some of the sweet little snowflakes from the Winter Greetings set all over the front.  Would you just look at that wonderful stitching in that gorgeous snowflake!?!  The sentiment is just too cute as well. 
winter greetings
Another color scheme here.  This stitched flake is a bit smaller than the one in the previous card.  I couldn’t get a good pic of the insides of the cards, but I added another sentiment from the set – May Your Holidays Sparkle & Shine – along with some more little stamped snowflakes. Here’s a look at all that I used

Ok, that’s all for today!  I’ll have a few more tomorrow.  It’s time for you to hop on over to the lovely Amy’s blog!  Have a fun hop!  :o) lyss

Gold Poinsettia ~

Hi!  How are you all?  I’m bopping in real quick with a card I made today for my in-laws for Christmas.  My FIL’s birthday is in a few days, so I needed to send his card, and I thought I may as well send the Xmas card along with school photos all at once.  So I hopped on line and found a couple of challenges to play along with. 
My new buddy, Wida, is the guest designer for this month with the CASE study challenge blog.  She’s amazing and funny and insightful and analytical, and hopefully, I’ll get to meet her for reals one of these days since we only live about an hour apart.  :o)  Anywho, this month the muse is Go-to-gal Windy Robinson.  Challenge #120 is this little ditty
IMG_0159
I used the flower focal, sentiment in the lower right, as well as the dry embossing with dies as my inspiration.  Also, the ladies over at JUGS are challenging us this week with embossing – dry or heat…I went with both!  I’m not a fan of gold, I’m more a silver kind of gal, or platinum ;o) But I’ve been embossing with gold ep lately and loving the effect, so I tore out my YOF Poinsettia dies and stamp set and went to town!
gold poinsettia
Sorry for the photo.  I can’t find a great spot for taking photos, and I think my favorite little camera is about to go kaput!  :o(  There are two layers of the smaller size and one larger stamped and embossed in gold.  I added some spring moss leaves embossed in clear.  I have these fun gold beads that are added to the center with glossy accents. 
gold poinsettia d
Each layer is up on a thin foam tape, as is the matted front portion.  Lots of levels here! ha
This was pretty darn easy to do, so I may have to make more this week.  I think I may play around with shading in the leaves and petals a bit though.  You know, because I need to add more to my creative plate!  Hope you’re having a stellar Monday…come back tomorrow for a lot of Lil’ Inker Design goodies!!  :o) lyss

Classic ~

Hiya!  I don’t know about you, but I tend to make cards for fun and challenges and then have to make special cards for people as their birthdays come up, even though I have 20 or so birthday cards in my stash.  Such was the case this past weekend when I realized it was no longer November and my dad’s birthday was just a couple days away!  Ridiculous, I know, but I don’t think my dad wants a card with a little boy holding dinosaurs on it.  lol

dad bday 12

I found this card on pinterest and knew I had to do my own version.  I used the new Instant Camera die from Lil’ Inker Designs to create a fun frame for the little slug bug.  My friend sent me a few of these little cars from PTI’s Enjoy the Ride a while back, and it fit perfectly!  I sliced out the windshield area and went to trace the line with a Memento marker (I think it looks better to have the outline), when I swiped it right up over the roof of the car.  Grrr!  But I didn’t have time to re-do it, so I had to go against my perfectionistic ways and just go with it.  Once it was all colored up, I stamped in the FATHER license plate (PTI Mixed Messages) and added glossy accents to the headlights and blinker lights. 

dad bday 12 d

The sentiment is from PTI Mod Squad and is embossed.  The letters were cut with PTI alphabet dies.  I added them to the double twill ribbon with glossy accents as well.  I use that stuff for everything!  I fix all my kiddo’s toys with it even!  It’s awesome ;o)

My dad never wanted to get *over the hill*, so I still tease him that he’s 39.

dad bday 12 inside

I used the stamps that I cut from fun foam to add the age.  Super fun! 

I’ve changed some things and cleaned up the sidebars on the blog today.  Holy moly that took a long time!  I’m glad it’s done though…it doesn’t feel so cluttered now.  Hopefully, I will go through my stamps soon and add something to the For Sale page. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a super day!!  :o) lyss

You are Special ~

Hola, mis amigos!  I decided to play along with a little challenge today…CASE Study Challenge #118.  I was pretty literal in my interpretation.  Here’s the challenge inspiration

Thanks-1

I’ve had the Harvest Berries set from PTI for a while now and only inked it up a couple of times.  I love all that is done with it but have too many stamps, it seems, to give it adequate love.  I need an intervention!  lol

case 118

To begin, I stamped a background text in antique linen, the sentiment went in next.  Then the ginkgo leaves in walnut stain.  I added some berries in wild honey and then sponged the edges.  I added Glossy Accents to the berries to help them stand out a bit.  After everything had dried, I added it to the card base with foam tape.  After all that, it just looked blah blah bland!  So I added the leaves from Turning a New Leaf in fired brick.  Ahh, much better!

I’m sending this one off to Operation Write Home.  It’s a bit smaller size than they ask for (it’s requested that cards are the regular A2 size, but hopefully, it can be used and enjoyed.  I have a box of about 30 cards getting ready to be mailed.  I think I’m going to try to turn some scraps that have been laying around forever to some more cards before I send the box off though.  Hope you’re all having a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!!  :o) lyss

Lil’ Inker Designs November Hop Day 5 ~

Welcome back to the final day of the Lil’ Inker Designs new release hop!  You should have arrived here from Emily’s blog.  If not, head on back to Laura’s to start off right and see all the amazing talent along the way!  I chose to work with my favorite new stamp from this release – Dear Santa – and make a quick tag to pop on a gift bag that I know I’ll end up using (yes, because I really hate to wrap presents!)

dear santa tag

I colored him up exactly as I did in the beginning of the week down to the white fluff on his beard and liquid applique on the hat and suit trim.  Hey, when you find something you love to do, just keep on doing it!  lol  The To: and From: is actually from the No Peeking set.  The little bow up in the corner is the new mini bow stacked on top of the small bow and tied together with a little red button.  Good enough to pack a punch and be done in no time!

Your next stop on this hop is the wonderful Debby!  Leave comments along the way for your chance to win one of the four $10 gift certificates to the Lil’ Inker Designs store!  A winner will be chosen at random from a random blog, so the more you comment, the better your chances.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have an inky weekend!  ;o) lyss

Lil’ Inker Designs November Hop Day 4 ~

Hi there!  I’m back today with another new Sugar Kissed Cottage stamp set, A Snowman’s Soul.  Another sweet, vintage scene of two children building a snowman with their pup in tow.  When I have an image with this much detail, I like to leave it as the focal point…that also makes it easier to choose colors and not have to match to a patterned paper.

snowmen

A little scene was created with Stickles lined hills with each layer up on a very thin foam tape.  The sky was added by sponging on some Distress Tumbled Glass ink.

So darling, right?  Gotta love those sweet scenes!  A quick view of the set:

Lil’ Inker Designs November Hop Day 3 ~

Welcome to day 3 of the new release for Lil’ Inker Designs!  I have a couple of goodies to show you today.  I’ve got a new set from the Sugar Kissed Cottage line called No Peeking, as well as the new mini bow die!  Hopefully, you’ve bopped on over from Jen’s blog.  If not, head on back to Laura’s to get on the right track!

I decided to make another little gift set for today. 

no peeking mini bow duo

Both the box and card base are stamped with the *No Peeking!* sentiment from the set, as well as some cream polka dots. 

no peeking d

These little guys are so sweet!  I love how she’s shhhsing him.  The image is colored with Copics and Spica pens for lots of glitter and shine!  The ornaments on the tree were dotted with liquid enamel and glitter nail polish.  I did something a little different with the mini bow die…did you spot it yet? 

mini bow present

I cut the looped part of the bow 4 times and put them all together to make a large topper for the present box.  A little button is tied to the center with some embroidery floss.  A little sentiment flag hanging off the edge reminds just one more time to not open it till Christmas!  LOL 

Once I’d made this topper bow, all I could think about was a felt flower for my new purse.  So off I ran to my crafty cave to make one!

mini bow flower

I really wanted this to hold together for a long time, so I actually threaded a needle and sewed the pieces together!!  If you know me at all, this is a very large feat! ;o)  I used 5 of the loopy bow pieces…after it was all done, I didn’t like the knot of the thread, so I glued a button down.  Now I can’t wait to make more of these in lots of sizes!  How cute would the trio of sizes be together!?!  Here are the products I used today

Ok, so this is a hop!  And this hop has prizes, so don’t forget to comment along the way.  Two secret blogs will have a $10 gift certificate to the Lil’ Inker Designs store picked randomly from the comments.  The more you comment, the better your chances!  Your next stop along this hop is Alicia!  Have a blast, and thank you for stopping by!  :o) lyss

Lil’ Inker Designs November Hop Day 1 ~

Hi there, LID friends!  Welcome to the first day of the Lil’ Inker Designs release hop!  There are so many goodies for you this month including 3 new sets from the Sugar Kissed Cottage line.  Today I’m introducing you to Dear Santa – a darling vintage Santa along with 7 sentiments.
I chose to put this little guy on a gift box.  I truly hate wrapping presents, so this will be easy to pop something into at the last minute and maybe use year after year.  Yep, I’m lazy like that!  LOL 
dear santa release
The papers are from Echo Park: This & That Christmas.  Love them!  If you hurry, some of the paper pads may still be available in the store!  The Ho, Ho, Ho sentiment is actually in a straight line.  I just inked up the first *Ho* three times and fit it into the jolly old guys lines.  It’s also embossed for a little extra umph.
dear santa release d
  He is colored with Copics.  I added some white fluff to his beard, hair and eyebrows.  The only stuff I had left had some glitter in it, making him a little more *magical*!  The trim on his hat and suit is covered in Liquid Applique.  You just let it dry overnight and then heat it with the heat gun to make it poof! 



dear santa release tag
The silk bow on top needed a little something, so I embossed another of the sentiments from the set on a Spellbinders tag.  A few little jingle bells – both rusty and red – tied in some twine finish this little package off!



Here’s the set in it’s entirety

Super cute, eh?  Ok, so this is a hop!  And this hop has prizes, so don’t forget to comment along the way.  Two secret blogs will have a $10 gift certificate to the Lil’ Inker Designs store picked randomly from the comments.  The more you comment, the better your chances!  You should’ve arrived here from the Lil’ Inker Designs blog…if not, go back and start over!  ;o)  Hop on over to Amy’s blog next!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  :o) lyss

Good News ~

Morning, friends!  I have a few good things to share with you today.  '

1.  201211_bloghopbox2 

Lil’ Inker Designs is having a new release hop beginning on Monday, Nov 12.  The best part?  There will be prizes! ;o)

2.  Lil Inker Designs is having a great sale that is going on through November 11th.  There are lots of stamp sets and dies that are on sale for 25% off!!  Make sure you use code NOV25OFF at checkout!  Just follow this link to see the items that are on sale: http://www.lilinkerdesigns.com/category/sale

3.  I’m excited to say that the political ads are over!  I don’t share my political views…I’m not educated enough about politics to not trip all over my words, so I think it’s best that I keep it all to myself.  However, I do have to say that I am super proud of my fellow Coloradoans that have decided that marijuana should be treated like alcohol!!  In other words, adults 21 years of age and older can partake in the mary j by state law.  Now, I don’t partake in it, but I have tons of friends and family that do.  It’s better for you than alcohol, doesn’t make you all angry (like alcohol can do) and isn’t the *gateway* drug that has been pounded into our brains for so very long!  I could go on and on but I won’t bore you with all the details of it.  I hope this leads to some new discussion in our wonderful country about the classification of this drug and how it should be regulated…talk about saving some money and time of our officials!!  Not to mention keeping the money here in the US and not with the Mexican drug cartels.  The best part of this amendment is that the first 40 million annually gained in taxes from the sale of marijuana will go to our public schools. 

All righty, tighty!  That’s all I have for you today!  I’m hoping to get some good crafting done this week, so maybe I’ll see you sooner rather than later!  Have a super day!!  ;o) lyss

Need help catching a little love? ~

Hello there, my crafty friends!  How’s your mojo flowin’?  Mine is spent!  I’ve had a goal to have more than one card in a publication for 2012 – well, I just have to get the happy email in 2012.  I have been submitting like crazy – even making stuff I don’t really like that much – just to get a ton in, in the hopes that I’ll get one of those emails that says, we want x, y and z!!  Well, the past few calls, I haven’t even gotten a happy email.  Ugh.  My first love is coloring, as I’m sure you all know if you follow this blog; however, I don’t ever see very many things that are colored on the pages of the magazine that I tend to submit to.  So I submit things that just aren’t my style a lot of the time.  Oh well!  I’m sure I’ll get back in the groove one of these days…
So after that uber uplifting paragraph, how about a fun little card??  LOL  When I first was accepted for the Lil’ Inker Designs Color Team, I chose to color up this darling little Hamster Cupid from the 2 Cute Ink line.  If you need any help catching a little love, I’m sure he’s the fella to get the job done!
hamster cupid
He’s in some warm greys with little dots of blue and blue violet around him to give the image a little more depth.  The back mat has a few rows of a heart border die in the whole white on white effect.  Plus I added the sweet stitched hearts to give the little guy something to aim at!  I don't know if this really works as CAS but I'll add it to the CAS-ual Fridays challenge #74 - Put your heart into it!  I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp challenge to use dies or punches.
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!  I’m pooped!  Went to the little man’s last soccer game – in the freezing rain – complete with pizza and award party after, then to his girlfriend’s birthday party at a gymnastics academy, and I’m sick to boot.  Tired!  This little mama needs to put up her feet and *rest my eyes*  Thanks so much for stopping by!!  :o) lyss

World Card Making Day Hop ~

WCMD_2012_FINAL LOGO

Welcome!  Tomorrow, October 6th, is the best holiday of all!  World Card Making Day is a fantastic holiday that celebrates what we all love to do best – play with stamps, ink, glue and paper!   Today, many of the winners of World Card Making Day 2011 are presenting you with cards from the categories that we won in.  Hopefully, you’ve arrived here from the wonderfully talented Kelly Rasmussen’s blog.  You’ll also want to make sure to continue through the end – Holly Anderson will be giving away 3 separate prizes on the Paper Crafts Connection blog.

I happened to win in the Thank You category.  I chose to play with my Copics, which is one of those things I love to do best!  I used the Waterlilies and Humming Along sets from Flourishes.

To make it just a little more interesting, I popped the center of the flower up on dimensional foam tape.  The sentiment just says ‘thank you’ to me, as in ‘thank you for your kindness.’ 

THANK YOU so much for stopping by!  Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Stephanie Washburn.  Have a super time along the hop!  :o) lyss

Happy Birthday, Zaniac the Maniac ~

Hi there!  Sorry I was MIA for so very long from the old bloggo!  Thanks for all the emails inquiring if all was a-ok, as well.  We’ve had a lot going on around these parts – trying to re-finance the house has been more than a PITA, got to go on a fabulous two week road trip to Disneyland, Sea World and back through Vegas {pics to come soon!}, and release week for Lil’ Inker Designs once we got back.  My mojo was back in California I think!  It took me forever to make something.  So frustrating!  Oh well, I ended up getting it all done.  Now, my little guy has turned 5 – aack!  I turned 35 five days before his birthday.  My birthday was spent at the soccer field because he had a double header.  I can now officially say that I’m a soccer mom – what?!?!? Anyhow, Z totally loves anything and everything Army, so we had to have an army themed birthday party.  It was a blast!  But I am so glad that it’s over.  We can finally just settle back into life without so many big things going on!

I decided to make him a little 8x8 scrapbook layout for his birthday.  I pinned a couple question sets to ask your kiddos on their birthdays every year a while back and wanted to make sure I actually did it instead of talking about it/thinking about it and never getting it done. lol  I’m the worst about that!  So I printed out The General from Saturated Canary at about 5.5 inches tall.

This image is so totally Z!  I colored him for DH birthday card back in August also.  Z likes to dress up and play all the time in his Army BDUs, so I colored this kiddo up like that.  Hubby says I still need to work on leaving areas light to almost white, but it’s so hard!!  This page just says Happy Birthday with the questionnaire on the next page.

I used Papertrey Ink dies for all the lettering and numbers.  For ease and, hopefully, longevity of the piece, I ran the paper through a Xyron machine first and made them all stickers.  I added a couple of staples to be able to enter this in The Saturated Canary challenge #27 to use office supplies.

Here’s the second page.  I downloaded a free font called Top Secret to make his invitations and make the page with all his answers. 

I made a little set of dog tags for him as well.  I didn’t include a social security number or religious views, but they’re fun!  I hope I keep up with this each year.  It’ll be fun to see his answers!  Here’s the two of them side by side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope to get back to creating more now that the weather is cooling down.  Have a super week!  ;o) lyss

CHALLENGES:

1. Cute Card Thursday #236: Letters & Numbers

2. JUGS #156: Numbers

3. Oozak #7: Die cuts

4. Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes (It’s their 5th Bday too!  Happy Birthday!)

5. Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes {my favorite type of challenge!!}

Lil’ Inker Release Day 4 ~

Hi friends!  It’s time for another peek at a darling set from The Sugar Kissed Cottage line of Lil’ Inker Designs.  This one is called Best Witches – it features a sweet little witch image along with 5 fun sentiments in a wonderful font!

Isn’t she cute?!?  I used the September Sketch for You to Try.  Such a fun one!  Her little treat bag is paper pieced and shaded.  I also drew in a little sidewalk with a Copic multiliner.  Here’s a detail shot

I used the new *must have* for every crafter dies – Stitched Mats Rectangles.  I love these!!  I’m not a sew-er…oops!  I mean seamstress!  These give you the feel of the stitch and if you want, you can use a gel pen or marker to connect the stitches like I did with my pumpkin cuties earlier in the week!  So fun and oh.so.simple!
