Little Pumpkin!

It's already mid-week and some of you must be waiting for the long three- day weekend coming up..
We had no plans so I know for sure where I will be and what I will be doing- and that  is crafting...
I got alot going on my plate and I really need to get started.  I was asked to do a combo invitation for a 25th business anniversary and also a birthday party for the president of the company..  And we are talking 150 - 200 invitations .  Yep, I will have to rock on this one, the event will be for November so I have all  this month to get this completed between other projects I'm working on...
I finally got myself into a routine with my cardmaking, before I would prep my card when I'm done stamping and so forth.  Well I came up with a theory for myself and I think it is working out.   I've been cutting up my card sizes in between of my cardmaking I find this is easier than doing it the same time prepping after stamping.  Since I do alot of different styles of cardmaking, I've been cutting them up and just prepping the base of my cards.   So when I decide what stamp or digi I going to be doing at that particular time I already have my card base ready.  It makes life so simplier and easy for me this way..  As far as the DP that is done when I decide what card base I will be doing and what the image is. (This kinda makes sense, huh!)
Anyhoo, I have a RAK and Secret Sister Swap to share, so to start it off my RAK that I received was from a great blogger friend Margie she sent me this Sizzix Little Pumpkin set, so I decide to create a card with this and I used C.C.Designs (Love Lolita Pumpkin).  This stamp was inked up with MS and promakers, stickles, scraps, and yes did it on the recessed window style card.   Thank you Margie, and if you haven't been  to
her bog hop on over she does some fantastic creativity.   So here is Little Pumpkin:
Front view
Side view - also added pop up dots!
Inside of card
And here's what my secret sister swap for August sent me Colleen. For more deets on this secret sister swap hop on over and check out Kris she's been coordinating this as far as I know.
So thank you Colleen, this was a delish ice cream card and some goodies she sent me.... Oh yeh!
Well this will be it for now, I'm back with my bunch of cardstock....
Thanks for stopping  and peeping in!
Hugs to you all!

I think I got it!

First I want to thank my dear blogging friend Amy for helping me by making a video on how to paper piece..
It was such a great big help to understand the steps of doing it right.. For the daylights I couldn't seem to get it and found myself getting so darn frustrated..  Thanks so much for doing this for me and I'm sure their must be alot of crafter's out their  that probably was in the same dilemma as I was.  Hugs to you Amy!
So with  this tutorial that I learned I need to show you all what I've conquered.  I did not one but two paper piecing cards and I think I did pretty well .   I think I will be hooked in doing more of these on my cards, etc...
So here they are:

Wah la - here is Swiss Pixies ( Birthday Gretel)
I paper piece her polka dot top and the balloons.  How cool is that?
She was inked up with copic and MS markers, stickles, and scraps of DP
sentiment from Hero Arts and clear embossed it.

And here's my second paper piecing card - Sugarplums ( Holiday Emma)
I paper pieced her dress and bow on her hair. She was inked up with copic and MS markers,
my fence is a digi image and that was inked up with Promarkers, added stickles, MS butterfly punch,
sentiment  Dandelion Designs from the set (Hello).

  As for my last card this was a digi image that was stashed with my surfer dude that I did two postings back.  She is my PM(Precious Moment Hula Babe) isn't she a darling!  She got inked up with copic and MS markers, Spellbinders Oval large, sentiment ( can't recall where I got it from ) and papers from scrap.
That's all I have to share for now, will be back later with another posting
Thanks for peeping in...
Many hugs to you all and especially to Amy!

While blog hopping I ran into a lot of blogger's that were doing desserts (apple, blueberry pies etc.) so I thought of just creating something like that too.. I inked up a digi image that I found and turned it into a cherry pie, added stickles and I already had the DP from DCWV( The Glitter Sweet) ribbon and Imaginisce clear stamp (Cherish)and inked up with MS markers.  Here's my delish cherry pie!
And for my last card, yes it's another simple Christmas Card, when I saw this digi image I had to have him..

Origami Diamond Fold Card /R.A.K

Here's a new card pattern that I attempt to do today, since I like the way it turned out I made a total of three..  It was very easy to do, I'm not sure if any of you tried doing this pattern, but I found doing it with CS is a little hard to work with... So instead I used pattern paper and it folds and creases better and you get a better diamond shape on both ends of the cards... It took me two attempts with the CS and I said forget it, unless you use the thinner CS maybe that would work out - who knows until you try it... For the pattern paper it doesn't matter if it's double sided because with the folds you will only see one side of the pattern...
This also would be great to make for an invitation too!  So here they are:

Stamp is sitting Tilda, colored with copic markers, added Sandylion essential stickers, ribbon
Marvy Uchida Scallop punch and digi image for the stool.

Sentiment (Hello) from Hero arts and cleared embossed, MS scallop rectangular, digi image inked with copic markers,
sentiment inside of card is from Lawn Fawn and ribbon.

Digi image colored with copic markers, Spellbinders (Floral Doily Motifs), gems , stickles and
sentiment from Hero arts collections... BTW all the pattern paper is from Target...
My last card is a R.A.K. I received in the mail today, it was from a great BF Cyndi.. Thank you sweetheart for creating this pretty Thank you card.  Look how cute this is, love the coloring and she is one of my fav stamps too...Hugs Cyndi!

Well the weekend is already approaching, so wishing you all a happy & safe weekend..
For all you die hards - keep on crafting..
Toodles for now and be back soon!
Hugs to all of you!
