Lawn Fawn Elephants

Good afternoon friends.  Today I have for you a card I made for my nephew.  I used Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie Stamps and Dies, and Lawn Fawn Wild For You Stamps and Dies.  The link will just take you to Lawn Fawn on-line store as they are sold out right now everywhere I look.  But if you go out to Lawn Fawn you can request notification when they are back in stock.

With Elphie Selfie I colored the profile elephants and mouse with Copic Markers. W1, W3, W5 for the mama elephant, W0, W1, W3 for the baby elephant, E31, E35 for the mouse.  R20 for everyones cheeks and ears.  For the camera I just used R24.

In the picture they took, straight on, I used all the same colors.  The inside sentiment is, You take the best selfies.  Cheeese on the front is done with clear embossing powder for a tone on tone look.

Thank you for stopping by.

Missed My Hubby

Hello Friends,

A few weeks ago one of my best friends, Pamela, and her mom, Pixie, drove almost three hours to come and pick me up and take me to their house for the week.  Pamela and I became very close as soon as we met two years ago at Jennifer Dove's Copic Boot Camp 2015, and kept in contact, then met up again in 2016.  This year we decided to have a little mini Boot Camp of our own in her house.  Her sons William and Nathan, and her mom joined us for some of it.  Pamela is so sweet she even had gifts to pass out like Jennifer does in Boot Camp.

Here is one of the cards I made while there, I decided to make it an I missed you card for my hubby who stayed home to take care of our three cats.  This is called a shaker card and it is the first time I made one.  We cut out 9 layers of the square frame, glued them together with acetate between the top two layers.  Used Momento inks to sponge the background, and sprinkled on the sequin mix I chose to match the background.

I then stamped and cut out a Wplus9 elephant from the stamp set called "Unforgettable".  I had such a fun time with Pamela and her family.  They spoiled me rotten.  Then they drove me all the way home.  Thank you to my adopted family, the Goodrich's, Pixie, Bob, and Pamela.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julie Nutting Doll Canvas

Back after being MIA for a few years.  This is my first post in a very long time, so please bare with me as it will take me a while to get back into the hang of things.

I fell in love at first sight with these Julie Nutting Prima Paper Dolls Stamps.  This one is called "Peasant Dress" as this was one of the first dolls to come out and they weren't given names at that time.

Her skin and hair are colored with Copic Markers, and her dress and hair band are paper pieced.  I used a 9" x 12" canvas that I painted with Dyan Reaveleys Dylusions paints in the colors Squeezed Orange and Fresh Lime.  Lace, flowers, and buttons were all in my stash.

I'll be back soon with another project.  Thank you for stopping by.

My parents and Make it Crafty

Hey everybody, its been a really long time since my last post.  I didn't want to wait any longer, so I'm doing this from my tablet.  Because of that I won't have any links, but you can find all but one digital image from the Make it Crafty store,

My parents are 83 years old and celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in October 2013.  I wanted to document moments in their lives with images I colored matched up with photos of them.  I used a 6 x 6 scrapbook kit.  The front page is an image by CCDesigns as this was a Christmas gift.


In the first photo they are only 15 years old and are standing in front of their high school.  The next photo of them they are 18 and just married.  The next is a group photo of them with all seven of their children, the baby in my dad's arms is me.  The last photo I'm just finding out was taken about ten years ago so that would make them 73 years young.  Thank God, at 83 they are both still with us that's why the last page says To Be Continued.  As I find more images that go with moments in their lives I will add to it.

I hope you enjoyed another post about my parents.  Can you tell I love them dearly?  Have a beautiful weekend.  I'm trying to post more frequently, lol.  Thanks for looking in.  Hugs, Julie.

Make it Colourful - Black and Orange

Wow, has it been forever since my last post or what?  Sorry, all I can say is Life Happens.  This is a card I did for the challenge on the Make it Colourful blog.  I've been working on this Zoe Celebrates image and thought she looked like she was happy it's going to be Halloween next month.

I hope you like her.  After coloring her up with my copics, I matched her up with some of my old papers from my stash.  Distressed everything and added a few flat pearls to her bow and center of the flowers on her jeans.

Have a great day,

Happy Fourth of July

Just wanted to wish everybody a very Happy Fourth of July.  Hope everybody has a great holiday planned, with lots of yummie food to indulge in.

Sorry I haven't posted in quite a while.  I have a lot of cards ready for you but I'm having camera problems.  I will be back as soon as I get my camera fixed or give up and buy another.  I hope you have some patience with me and give me time to return.
