Renaissance Card (Curtain Call 45 & 2S4Y 60)

Hi guys, a quickie post for today and then it will likely be this weekend before I'm back, as this week is shaping up to be a BUSY one! This is for Curtain Call 45 over at Stacey's Stamping Stage and also for Kazan's sketch 60 at 2S4Y. Here's my card. I just picked up this stamp last week at Target for SEVENTY-FOUR CENTS, yep, you heard me right, less than a dollar for this pretty pattern by Inkadinkadoo. The challenge colors are actually Concord Crush, Pear Pizzaz, White, and Crumb Cake (Kraft). I actually do not have either Pear Pizzaz or Concord Crush, so I used, Certainly Celery and Elegant Eggplant instead. So, to begin with I lightly stamped the SU! Medallion stamp in Versamark on my Crumb Cake card base. Then I embossed my bargain stamp using copper embossing powder on a piece of Elegant Eggplant. I matted the embossed piece with white cardstock after using the ticket corner punch. Then I adhered 2 Certainly Celery pieces together that had been die cut with a Spellbinders Netabilities die (the reason I did this, was to make the scalloped rectangle wider to accomodate my stamped image, look closely and you'll see the seam). At this point, I'm starting to think renaissance feel (sometimes my background in theater comes in handy....  :) so THAT was where I got the idea for the braided ribbon. I then adhered the braid down with glue dots, and used dimensional dots (stacked 2 high) for the decorative panel. I also had embellished the panel with a couple of Prima flowers and a copper brad. To finish the card I stamped the flowery circle from SU! "Just Believe" in Certainly Celery ink, and then layered the "just for you" sentiment from the same set in Eggplant ink. That's it for me, have a STELLAR week!! -Noelle

Pinwheel Card (GS #53 and CTD #107)

Hi all! I am starting to feel better and hubby has to work today :( so I am mostly planning to be in with the boys today. Maybe a trip to Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte (my best friend Rachel told me they are BACK!!:) But, while I wait for Ian and Collin to clean their rooms (it could take DAYS!!!) I thought I'd get a couple challenges in for you & for me:) So here's the deets on my card. It's for Get Sketchy #53 and for  Color Throwdown #107. I am LOVING all the fun pinwheels I've been seeing on cards lately! . I have made them before but not on cards. I made some 4th of July pinwheels for all my kids, nieces and nephews on Independence day '09. SO fun! But I think they are super happy and fun on cards. So, when I saw the 3 circles on this sketch, all I could think was "pinwheels!!" and the fun colors in the color throwdown challenge just added to it. So, I made the pinwheels out of some fun papers by Basic Grey (that patterned background paper is also Basic Grey) and October Afternoon. I used a solid premade card by DCWV. The center star brad is SU! as well as the Certainly Celery piece which was embossed with an SU! exclusive texturz plate by Sizzix and punched with an EK Success large curved embossing punch. The Pretty in Pink cardstock is also SU!The jumbo brads are old, I don't remember where they are from.... I then stamped the sentiment from 'A Little Birthday Cheer" and it was CROOKED!!! Grrrr. So I stamped it again on the Pretty in Pink scrap and popped it up with dimensionals, then going back in with a pen to "correct" the brackets a bit. Well, that's it for now! I hope to be back later today with some more challenges!! Have a GREAT day! :) -Noelle

Mojo Monday/Create with Connie and Mary Challenges card

Hi everyone! Here are two last challenges I was hoping to get done this week. They are Mojo Monday 153 sketch 
Create with Connie and Mary color challenge

I love these colors, but I think there's only less than 24 hours left for the color challenge. The colors are: Pacific Point (yea!!!), Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Daffodil Delight, and black. The Mojo Monday challenge was a simple, modern sketch, and the art inspiration for the color challenge was also modern, so I decided to link them. It's hard to see here, but the white background is glossy white, I liked the added dimension it gave to the card. I stamped the swirl from SU! set "Priceless" in the UR hand corner, I then punched a small square out of each of the colors for the challenge, and then 4 larger squares in black. I dry embossed the colored squares with my Cuttlebug embossing folder, being careful to center the squares on the flowers in the folder. I added colored rhinestones to the center of each flower. I used this fun ribbon from the 1$ bin at Michaels, and did the loopy thing with it. To try this: run a strip of adhesive down on your card, stick down one end of the ribbon, and then loop it up as you go along, sticking it back to the adhesive after the loop, do this as many loops as you want, then trim the ends. A fun (and easy!) no-sew ribbon technique. I stamped the "thank you" sentiment from SU! "Because I Care."  Finally I added the Prima Flowers, layered with a retired Pacific Point SU! corduroy brad. Ok, well that's it for me, Thanks SO much for all the nice comments, I am hooked on blogging for life! I will be sure to be visiting your blog as well if you leave a comment. Have a great day! :) Noelle

Prom Dress Card for 2S4Y

Hi all! Here's a quick post for today, this is for this week's 2S4Y. Here is the link if you would like to join in the fun:) Ok, this is a bit of a departure, but I am in LOVE with this American Crafts ribbon (even tho it's not blue;) I used before here. So, last time I used it, I put it on the top of the card and this time I put it on the bottom. I thought it looked like a ruffly skirt, that's why I'm calling it a "Prom Dress Card." :) Ok, so I broke out my sewing machine again today (this card screamed out for it!). I think everything is pretty self explanatory, so here's the supply list.... Bingo card: Jenni Bowlin Studio, Rose ribbon: American crafts, Border sticker, mini circle sticker and pink dotted paper: Basic Grey, Solid cardstock, vintage brads & "So Kind" stamp: Stampin' Up!, taupe dotted paper: My Mind's Eye, rose printed paper: K& Company and mini tags: October Afternoon.
Well, that's it for me today, have SUPER evening! And please comment or follow, I would LOVE to hear from you!! :) -Noelle

The colors are Tempting Turquoise, White, Poppy Parade (of which I have none, I had to improvise) and Daffodil Delight. My stamp is TCP, I love this little kitty! If you look close, you can see I gave her a beaded collar, lol:) The yellow dot paper is SU! from my NEW package of "play date" DSP, the red buttons are also SU! Those scallop pieces are :coral; SU! from the old shaped notes thay had and turquoise from Archiver's The Paper Company, it's got a bit of a sheen. That floral piece is from a DCWV premade card, the Citrus card box. The ribbon and glittery buttons are American crafts. I colored that pretty kitty with a combo of Copics & SU! markers.
Here is the link to Stacey's Stampin' Stage
Here is the link to SFYTT
and I found out I can submit this for the TCP blog hop as well:) yea! a card I can 3peat!

that's it for me tonight! 3 posts in one day, whoohoo!! :)

Hudson Holiday scrapbook pages

Hi all, another quick post for today, because these pages were already done. These are some quick pages I made last week (I'm still on my scrapbooking jag...) I used the new "pennant" look everyone seems to be doing for the title. I had cut out this little snow family (to represent MY family;) a while ago, so these pages were super quick & fun. I collect snowmen & I really love these colors, so it was a fun and quick 2 page spread. Again, a bit of trouble with the photographs, I've gotten pretty slick photographing cards, but the pages are still tough for me, any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Supply List: cricut cartridges: Snow Friends & Baby It's Cold Outside, SU! Riding Hood Red cardstock/inkpad, hemp twine, and Contempo Alphabet stamps; Basic grey Snowman paper, DCWV Background paper, felt accent sticker (K& Company?), EK Success rounded tag punch, library pocket Lil' Davis designs, mini buttons, glue dots, stapler.

Have a great day! xoxoxo Noelle
"Baby Evan snowman"

Get Sketchy #52 using paper charms

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well on this last day of our weekend, I know, I know, tomorrow it's back to the grind! I found a new challenge today, called "Get Sketchy." Here's the link to this week's sketch
It had fun dangly things on the sketch, remember my paper charms? Way back when I started blogging? If you do, you are probably one of about 4 people who do, so here is the link to way back when, but there's a little tutorial. So, I made these charms a few months ago & had only used one of them for a necklace I made for a birthday gift. SOOOO, when I saw dangly things on this sketch, I thought, "Yay!! I can use those paper charms;)" I made the middle one so it could be untied from the card and tied on a bracelet, or zipper pull or something.

So here we are, I used SU! "Urban garden" DSP and mini punch pack for the charms. The solid paper is Baja Breeze and Basic Gray (and a tiny piece of Kiwi Kiss). The birthday stamp is from SU! "A Little Birthday Cheer." (Thanks to my friend Kim who called earlier and said that she was ALSO making a card with those colors, we must be on the same wavelength:) Ok, blue ribbon is that Nature's Own biodegradable stuff (gee, are you sick of it yet, since it's like on EVERY card I've made lately, lol....), green ribbon is Creative Imaginations, button is from my random jar, the punch is Martha Stewart, the patterned paper is October Afternoon and the glittery green brad MAYBE American crafts, but don't quote me on that.

I'm still unsure about one design element, and please weigh in if you think I should have stamped something on the Baja Breeze in Baja Breeze ink or Versamark? I am just not sure if it needs a little something "more." just like that Medallion stamp, or some kind of a tonal background. I thought it might get too busy with the charms and all, but I'm still on the fence about that part. 

Ok, well, that's it for me, I'm planning on being back later this week with some more fun challenge posts! please comment (or follow, pretty please?) ;) I would LOVE to hear from you. Happy Crafting!!

xoxo, Noelle

Birdie card for Color Throwdown and Kazan's Sketch

Hi everyone! I'm back today with Kazan's sketch and a color challenge I haven't tried before. Here's the link for The Color Throwdown.. Here is Kazan's Sketch 59. I  hadn't stamped on the Presto Patterns paper before. I don't know why, but it never occurred to me to stamp on it before I brayered over it. Then when I was surfing, I saw Tracey Parrott's blog and saw a card where she had done that, on her blog Stamp for Joy . So, that gave me my jumping off point. I stamped the bird from SU! "Always" set in Basic Brown ink (I mean, really, who ISN'T in love with this little guy??) on the Presto Patterns cardstock, then I brayered over him in Certainly Celery, then I sponged the edges. I layered 4 strips of varying lengths that I had used the scallop border punch on & adhered them with eyelets. I sponged those as well. I layered up my bird piece with Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky and then dry embossed a Certainly Celery scrap with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then I wrapped some wide striped ribbon around the scallop piece and the dry embossed piece, and layered the bird accent on top with dimensionals. Added some Prima flowers and a NEW Making Memories metal flower (the white one near the bottom, I LOVE these!!) and I stamped the sentiment (from SU! "A Little Birthday cheer"). The challenge colors are : Kraft (card base), Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky and Certainly Celery. A TIP: If you don't have the Presto patterns cardstock, try the following for the same look; heat emboss a clear pattern on white cardstock, then stamp over it, like I did. You'll get the same effect, without the dinero;) That's it for me today, please comment or follow:) and have a STELLAR day!! ;D-Noelle

"Whale-come" baby Jackson!!!

Hi everyone! Quick post for the day. 2 very dear friends have had sweet baby boys within the last week! Yay!!! These 2 moms are also friends, so I am looking forward to watching Baby Dylan and Baby Jackson grow up together:) I shoulda snapped a pic of Baby Dylan's card before I gave it to his mom. It was a cute monkey card, since he's got a jungle themed nursery. Baby Jackson has a beach themed nursey, so here's his card. I used my new EK Success embossing BIG scallop punch for the "waves." The wave colors are, in order: Marina Mist, Bermuda Bay, Blue Bayou, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point (which I waxed rhapsodic about yesterday, so I'll spare you my passion for this color today, lol!!) ;), then Not Quite Navy and Tempting Turquoise. The whale is from the "Pun Fun" SU! set, the clouds are from the retired sat, "By Air" also, SU! as well as the ribbon. I colored the whale with Copics. The sentiment is stamped with the teeny-tiny Studio G letters, I believe I got them in the 1$ bin at Michaels. This is a 6" card, thanks for stopping by and please follow or comment, I'm trying hard to get my followers up above 4. I've had 2000 hits, so I know you are out there, please follow! :) Ok, enough with the shameless plugs, have a super day! Happy Crafting! - Noelle

Curtain Call Color Challenge 43 and SFYTT 42

Hi everyone! I hope you all are well. I try to do both of these challenges every week, and this week I thought I would combine them. Here is the link to the color challenge and here is the link for the SFYTT.Both very fun challenges this week! Truly, I am in love with these colors, I was crazy about them when they came out and I am still enamored;) Particularly Pacific Point. I'm a major blue lover (I know, I know, I've mentioned it a few times now, lol!) But this is truly my absolute FAVORITE shade of blue! Oooooo! Ok, this card, let's see..... all supplies are from Stampin' Up! except for those Prima flowers. Gosh, I am just having a major love affair with those right now as well! :) The colors are Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and White for the challenge, I actually used ivory instead because I really preferred the way it looked with my patterned papers. That stamp is from the new set, "Just Believe." Here's how I did the stamp technique. I stamped the image on Kiwi kiss cardstock with Ivory (Very Vanilla) craft ink, then using some little sponge applicators, I used my pastel chalks to color in each part of the image the color I wanted. For the "tangerine"
flowers I lyered Cameo Coral chalk and Pumpkin Pie chalk. For the blue flowers, i used Not Quite Navy and it seemed to blend fairly well.
Then, as a final step, I sprayed the image with gold Smooch Spritz. Of course, it's a little tough to see the sparkle here, but I really love the way it looks, it set the chalk as well as give added dimension, I will definitley use the Smooch Spritz that way again! Well, that's it for me, I'm having my aunt and uncle (& cousins) over for dinner tonight. It should be fun sisnce it's been awhile since I've seen them, yea! Have a great day & PLEASE comment or follow, I'd love to hear from you! :)

Hi all! Trying to sneak in one more card before the weekend hits! This is for this weeks Cat's Pajamas challenge TCPTUES122 The colors are Kraft, Denim, and Candy Apple Red. Here is the link if you want to join in the fun as well. Here's the little penguin stamp from my TCP birthday set, the sentiments are also from there. I used some of my blue/white printed paper (a little of each side!) that I'm just in LOVE with from TPC Studio's Mediterranean Summer line. The red "tablecloth looking piece is from BoBunny's Back to Backs, this is the Block Party line. That little tag is October Afternoon. And of course my punches from EK Success, gosh I would be just lost without my punches! (no, SERIOUSLY, I would!! ;) Well, that's it for me, have a lovely weekend! -Noelle

Nursing Home Project scrapbook page

Hi everyone! I hope you all are well. Another nutty week around my place (I know, no big surprise! ;) but I did have a scrapbook day with my best buddy Rachel last week & it got me in the groove. I don't know about you, I make cards all the time, but I seem to scrapbook in waves. Anyway, last week I mostly did Christmas pages, but I was kind of holding on to these pics here. I just didn't know what to do with them. These are pics from the service project we did with our church group. We all made cookies (3 dozen per family) and we got together one morning to ice them and decorate them. Then we drove them over to a nearby nursing home and passed them out. There are 7 kids in our group and so many of the residents just enjoyed seeing the kids so much. A couple of the little girls in our group sang "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" to some of the residents. And it's true that giving equals getting such a wonderful feeling in return. It was a very special day! So today I found this paper in my stash, and somehow it just seemed to fit the theme of "planting kindness." It's not Christmasey at all, but I think I like that. I love the paper flowers and accents I made. they were super simple, just a bunch of punches and some green jumbo brads. Thanks for checking out my pages:) Please comment or follow (I'm trying to up my 4 followers to more;) and as always, have a GREAT day!!
ps: fellow bloggers, if you have any tips for photographing scrapbook pages, I would SO appreciate them! I really struggled with these and they still are not the greatest. :(
Supply list: AdornIt printed cardstock, SU! solid cardstock in Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Gable Greean and Tangerine Tango. Block Party Combo stickers by BoBunny Press, Creative Memories lined journalling cardstock, Miss Elizabeth's mini black letter stickers, Paper studio white letter stickers, green jumbo brads, SU! Pacific point marker.

Spotted Canary Posts

Hi all, here's some posts I did for my Spotted Canary Craft Spot. The Spotted Canary site is run by EK Success Brands which include: Martha Stewart Crafts, K & Company, Jolee's stickers, and EK Success punches. They have some other companies as well, but those are the 4 I know. I LOVE this site. I've been on some of the bigger sites for years and haven't really met anyone new. I've met the nicest people on Spotted Canary! I have online crafty friends now, pretty cool :) They also do alot of really cool challenges that anyone can participate in. Anyhoo..... I use alot of Stampin' Up! product, so I thought I'd do a few cards using more of their product, tho, they make the punches that SU! sells and they are the BEST punches! :) Here we go.....
This first one is probably my favorite (see, I am getting girlier in my taste!!) This cool ribbon from American crafts makes a perfect foil for this K & Company paper, that reminds me of vintage wallpaper. I used 2 of my SU!/EK punches on here (gotta LOVE that little birdie!) I put Prima flowers accented with pink and white rhinestone brads in the centers of the roses on this fancy ribbon. I used the "Happy bird-day" sentiment from my SU! Pun Fun stamp set. The SU! solid cardstock used is Elegeant Eggplant and Crumb Cake.

Ok, numero dos: The patterned paper is K & Company, the big gem is from Jolee's Parcel line (VERY cool stuff!) The solid cardstock used is SU! Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy. The ribbon is Creative Imaginations and the Punch used is EK Success "Embossed Curve" pretty nifty punch!

This third one is a bridal card. The flowers are Prima again, but I ripped a couple apart and sort of built my own flower. Generic ribbon, K& Company fancy die cut mat. SU!/EK circle punches. The stamp is from SU! "All Holidays."
You can purchase the wedding card here.
Well, that's it for me today. Have a great one!!! :)

Dad's owly birthday card SFYTT

Hi everyone! I'm back- I actually made both this and the color challenge card last night and I wanted to post them then IN SPITE of the fact that my camera takes SO much better card pics during the day. I was so excited about these guys, I was willing to take bad pics anyway;) But, I couldn't find my camera, even after looking in all my usual haunts, so I had a little pout and ended up retiring and getting (at least a little bit of) sleep.Here's my Dad's birthday card, (Happy birthday, Dad! It's.... ALMOST in the mail!!) Try to ignore the fact that the "birthday wishes" is stamped crooked and that I had to go over the "hoot hoot hooray" with pen to make it readable on the pocket, ok? The sketch showed a bit if a larger circle. you can check it out here again- dumb links button NOT working. Who do you call when your links button is not working?? The links button police?? I think I am, unfortunately, just going to have to deal!
:(  I have done this "knothole" look a couple other times on cards in my splitcoast gallery. Here is an example (hey, it worked!!)  Well, that's it,I gotta fly, soooooo tired, a lot of late nights lately plus another big week ahead! Doing some scrapbooking tomorrow- will try to get another post or two in this week! Have a great one!! :) _Noelle

Hello there! (Spotted Canary Challenge and Stacey's Stampin' Stage color challenge)

Hi there! One son in school this morning, two to go!! Although, I gotta say, I got a wee bit weepy this morning, when my big 9 year old, did not want to be hugged in front of his friends:( He is getting SO big! I'm not ready. I know, I know, moms never are! His teacher seemed super cool and fun, so I'm sure he is having a good first day! I am multitasking again today. This is for BOTH the Spotted Canary August challenge AND Stacey's color challenge for this week. For Spotted Canary the challenge is to use the colors blue, green and brown on a project. I'm hoping the teal on the tag qualifies as green? Close, enough, anyway, I'm hoping. ALSO this is for Stacey's Stampin Stage color challenge. The colors are: Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Kraft (Crumb Cake), and white.  Here's those links Stacey's Stampin' Stage AND Spotted Canary. Ok, both links are currently on here, we will see if they behave and STAY PUT today! Ok, so, I know, you are thinking..."Hmmmmm, this looks somewhat similar to yesterday's card?" Well yes, yes it does! Same stamp set that Hero Arts Poly Clear set "Earth Flowers." then the same ribbon technique, I really LOVED the way it turned out yesterday, so I cheated and did it again:). Here's how you do the ruffled ribbon if you've never tried.... run a strip of adhesive along where you want the ribbon (I use that SUPER sticky tape with the red backing.... did you know that is actually toupee tape? Yep- fun fact for the day!) Then leave a tail, if you want the ends to stick out like I did, then loop your ribbon in even increments sticking it back down where it hits the tape, leave the ribbon smooth if you want to layer over it, like I did with this tag-if you like a more casual look, you can make the loops more uneven, or staple them in place. You can also iron or flat iron them down to make them flat. I keep my old flat iron in my supply bag for ironing ribbon. A great tool and you likely already have one at home. Ok, so this ribbon is an off brand, the tags (2 are layered) are October Afternoon, the button is from my random jar again, the brad and mini clip are SU! as well as all the cardstock and ink, and the mini letters are from Cosmo Cricket. I just got these letters at Archiver's and they are really affordable and fun! They come in a bunch of colors too, so that's always helpful. Well, I think that's it. Thanks for stopping by:) Remember, follow my blog and I will follow yours! And if not, please comment-I'd LOVE to hear from you! Have a GREAT day:)

Girly Flowery birthday card for Juliana SFYTT Kazan's sketch

Hi everyone! I hope you all are well- my hubby is out of town
:(...... visiting our new nephew:)
and the boys start school this week and next, so its back to the grind! Because I've been trying to squeeze in back to school shopping, laundry, and those last few fun summer activities, I'm multitasking. This card, for example, is a birthday card, a blog post and a SFYTT challenge for the week. And if Flutterby Wednesday does another open challenge tomorrow, I will submit this as well. We will see what they do- I posted on a whim and my card was featured!!! :) I'm sure all of you veteran bloggers are used to being featured, but not me, this is my VERY first time! I really couldn't be happier about it!! It's the card below, the fairy card that was featured.
Ok, back to today's card..... my friend Juliana is well known for being the girliest girl you could ever meet. She lives in CA and she's coming to see me this week, YEA!!! Her b-day was last week, so I am (LATE!) finally getting around to her b-day card. Here is this week's SFYTT link. ***After I posted, I realized this card would also work for Kazan's sketch! Here is the link for that as well:) AND I was able to submit it for Flutterby Wednesday as well. Click on my "I was Featured" button over there, and it will take you to that challenge. TALK about multitasking!! :)***Soooo..... NEW stamp set fresh outta the package. This is Hero Arts Poly Clear set "Earth Flowers." They say it stamps like rubber and it's really true. I like these FAR better than the image quality of regular silicone stamps. Paper is from SU! retired DSP "Cottage Wall." Ribbon, also SU!, also retired, Rich Razzleberry polka dot ribbon. Nestabilities die. Button from my button jar (most of the buttons I use are from those little packs on the clothes you buy? Yep- I save them ALL- a good money saving tip, if you don't do this!) The birthday stamp is from SU! "Upsy daisy" Lets see, what else, oh.... floral wire and mini rhinestones. Colors are: SU! Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulence. That's it! Have a great day, all! I'm making ALOT of cards today, so I'll try to get another post or 2 in this week. Please comment or follow. I'd LOVE to hear from you!!! :)
