Welcome back to our September edition of Fancy Friday! .. I can NOT believe a month has flown by! We’ve all been plenty busy since we last posted and I’m not quite sure how a month has gone by without my coming back to share with you all but somehow it has!  I will come back to share some projects and some highlights of Founders Circle last week but in the mean time, have a hop through all of our blogs to see the fun things we have to share with you today!

This month, we have a sketch challenge to share with you! Jen came up with this sketch and while I did not create a card, I hope I didn’t stray far from what the sketch looks like on my Halloween Treat Box.

Here’s Jen’s sketch.

I used a variety of elements on this project and am pretty happy with how it all came together. Now, I won’t be making a whole pile of these but maybe just a few for a few special guys in my life! Here are some of the little details.

I colored the martini glass in with blendabilities.. not the most stellar job but until I was looking at it zoomed in on the camera it was looking okay! .. I’ll improve with the next one! One of the parts I love is the colored rhinestones.. I just LOVE that you can custom color your rhinestones to match your project with the Blendabilities markers!

oohhh.. and that Iridescent Ice embossing powder.. I love coating a piece of paper with that beautiful stuff! The circle that frames the opening in the top of the box is coated with clear embossing powder and then Iridescent Ice. My friend Cynthia created one of the most beautiful swaps with this technique for Founders Circle.. I know it will be a hit with my customers when I craft with them at Stampin’ Bingo on Monday and at my All Day Crop next weekend.  Thanks Cynthia!

What’s your favorite thing to color with Blendies?!

Now, don’t forget to hop along to see what everyone else has created! Becky is up next!  Leave a little love if you wish by making a comment and if you did last month along with a link you might want to know who won our challenge.  Lauren Reeves was our challenge winner! Congratulations Lauren! Be sure to stop by again next month.. there will be something in store for you!

Fancy Friday August Edition

Fancy Friday Button-Sleepless Stamper

 

Welcome to the first edition of Fancy Friday.

transparent

We had so much fun working together last year that we decided to stick together to bring you a Fancy new Blog Hop Challenge, Fancy Friday! On the last Friday of every month, we will bring a different/new challenge for you to play along with!  We’ll be bringing all kinds of fancy projects and fun challenges in a variety of themes.  Challenge themes will vary from color to sketch, to stamp set, to occasions, holidays or themes and all kinds of other fancy things! Our first challenge is a color challenge that was chosen by Becky.  I fell in love with this set of colors AND the piece of furniture in the challenge so I played this one rather literally and instead of just using the color palette, I created my card to look like the fabric on the chair.. Becky might have sparked something in me.. now I want to decorate a room like this!

transparent

Here’s the color palette you’re going to create with but don’t forget to read on to find out how to play along!

… and here is what I came up with to go with the challenge!

Here’s a closer up view of the coloring.

transparentFancy Friday-Sleepless Stampertransparent

I embossed a piece of Watercolor Paper with the Lovely Lace embossing folder and then colored it in (on the de-bossed side) with an aqua painter by dipping it in ink that I had smooshed on the lid of my ink pads.  I kept the tip fairly squeezed out so that the color was vibrant and not watered down much.  The centers of the Tangelo Twist flowers are cut from an embossed piece of Early Espresso Cardstock.  I am really loving this color palette and can’t wait to create more with it!

transparent

Now, a challenge isn’t a challenge without a prize and of course to give away a prize we need some rules.  Here’s how you can win the Seasonally Scattered stamp set (available in the 2014 Holiday Catalog):


1. Leave a comment on any one of the Fancy Friday Team member’s blog with a link to your creation. Comments/links MUST be left by Friday, September 19th 7:00 PM MST in order to be eligible for the prize.

2. Please use the color palette provided. You can use any combination or all of the colors provided as well as any neutrals. Although SU colors are listed, you can use any colors you have on hand as long as they are similar.

3. You MUST put a link in your post back to the challenge. *ONE lucky winner will be announced during the September Fancy Friday Blog Hop! (the last Friday of September)

transparent

I can’t wait to see what you create! Comment below with your link so we can all go have a look and leave some love in your comment section!  We’ve got plenty of inspiration here so be sure to hop along to Becky next and all the way through to the rest of the girls projects!

Artisan Wednesday Wow ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood

July Hop Button

Welcome to what is our final Artisan Design Team Blog Hop as your 2013-2014 ADT!

While we are here to provide inspiration to you all and I can guarantee you there will be, I can also almost assure you that there will not be a dry eye in the house tonight!  .. I also promise this isn’t the end of us so stay tuned.

Tonight’s project was created as a tribute to these girls who have each become like a sister to me, more than just my friends.  This page is in honor of these girls and is a Celebration of our Sisterhood!

AWW ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood ~ Sleepless Stamper

I have a little closer view here for you.

AWW ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood ~ Sleepless Stamper

Every. Single. One. Of. Them. has a truly special and unique place in my heart and always will.

AWW ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood ~ Sleepless Stamper

I used a variety of papers on this project.  I used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, I used Silver Foil, I used Silver Glimmer paper and more.

AWW ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood ~ Sleepless Stamper

I switched up the Amazing Birthday Stamp and made is suit the purpose of this page. These girls truly do create ridiculously amazing art!

AWW ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood ~ Sleepless Stamper

I used the Decorative Star Mask to create this spray of stars across the page. You may have seen the page I created for the convention display boards using this set and some brighter colors. I like how the stars fell on my page so I cased that and replicated it here in a monochromatic scheme. To help with that, I sponged some of the stars with Versamark and heat set with Silver Embossing Powder.

I also used the Project Life by Stampin’ Up!  Love Story Accessory and Card Kit to add a little something extra to my page.

AWW ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood ~ Sleepless Stamper

The Star Framelits are such a great accent for a variety of themes and went perfectly with this page!

AWW ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood ~ Sleepless Stamper

Now, Here is where the tears come in. I mean every last word. These girls mean the World to me! I’m grateful beyond measure to have them in my life! Thank-you to each of you for your special and unique talents and for what you bring to our friendship.  Some girls brought laugher, I’m sure we all shed tears, some girls needed virtual hugs and some were always ready with them, we shared in each other joys and sorrows, some were like a Mom and sometimes we all led each other astray and each of us was always there to have each others back or fit in the back of each-others pocket to give that word of encouragement or little pep talk we needed to get through hard times.  Needless to say, I think we’re stuck with each other.. and you may just be stuck with us in some form or other .. more on that shortly!

Here’s where I incorporated the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! cards.

AWW ~ Celebrate the Sisterhood ~ Sleepless Stamper

No words can sum up the impact that just one year of working with these girls has had on my life. One year ago, when I was called to the stage I had no idea how much richer my life would be for the friendships of each of the girls who had been called to the stage before me. I love you all!

Convention Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Scrapbooking

Display Board Samples ~ Inspire Create Share ~ Sleepless Stamper

Welcome back to another share of the samples that were created for the Display Boards at Inspire Create Share 2014.

Today I have a Scrapbook Page to share with you and if you make sure to hop on over to the Stampin’ Up! Facebook Page later today you’ll see another one that is very similar to it!  I’ve been in a bit of a practice lately of using the same idea or sketch over a variety of stamp sets or themes or using the same stamp set to create a variety of different projects.  I’ve really been trying to keep things simpler to accomplish by not re-inventing the wheel.  .. and sometimes I just really like an idea and don’t want to use it just once! I’ve been able to get a lot more done by following this practice too! ..give it a try!

So, here is the page I created with this set.. not a birthday page at all!

Convention 2014 Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Sleepless Stamper

These photos are of some summer fun my boys were having last summer while on summer break.  They loved to play ‘Man Tracking’! They’d get all dressed up in what they thought was Western or ‘Man Tracking’ gear and chase each other around the yard as the yard.. but not before having me paint their faces so that they could really play the part! It kept them busy for hours!

I tried my hand at some Cathy Caines doodling on this one to give the page a little something more around the edges and used my Stampin’ Write Markers to play around with my journaling and give it a little more interest.

Convention 2014 Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Sleepless Stamper

I LOVE that new Star Decorative Mask.. I have already used it quite a bit and it’s not leaving my table-side!  I used my Sponge Daubers to apply a variety  of colors of ink and co-ordinated that with the Be a Star stamp set.  … I did something  a little different on the page that you’ll see on the SU Facebook Friday post (our last one .. insert sad face here!) and will fill you in on that next week!

Convention 2014 Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Sleepless Stamper

I continued the spray of stars up over the left side of the page and added in some more die cut stars using the Star Framelits and used the ‘Make Today Ridiculously Amazing’ greeting from Amazing Birthday!  I do really like that stamp for a variety of purposes!

Artisan Wednesday Wow ~ Kinda Eclectic Swap Cards

July Hop Button

Welcome back to another week of Artisan Wednesday Wow! We are drawing to a close of our term as your 2013 Artisan Design Team and have truly enjoyed creating for you all year!

The project I have to share today is the swap I created to send off to convention for each of my fellow Artisan Design Team Members.

Before we get started today I wanted to congratulate three of our current team members for their achievement of being appointed to your next Artisan Design Team!  Mercedes, Becky and Cindy have all been selected to create for you again next year and I am so looking forward to watching for their projects along with the rest of their team! Congratulations to all three of you and the entire new team, I know you will all have an amazing year and will build friendships that are sure to be a blessing!  Each of these girls is truly a blessing in my life and this card that was created for them sums up how I feel about them.  While I have two versions to share, the gold version is the one that I created for the team and to go on  the Display Boards at Convention.  Here, you can see both versions.

AWW ~ Kinda Eclectic ~ Sleepless Stamper

Here it is in Brushed Gold Cardstock.

AWW ~ Kinda Eclectic ~ Sleepless Stamper

I masked off the bottom half of the sunburst and stamped it in versamark and heat set with Gold Embossing powder.

AWW ~ Kinda Eclectic ~ Sleepless Stamper

Here’s the Whisper White version.

I used another one of my Kinda Eclectic display samples to create to swap with the Display Stampers Team.  This is the one I created to swap with yet another amazing group of women and stampers.

AWW ~ Kinda Eclectic ~ Sleepless Stamper

I just love that gold sequin trim.

Convention Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday

Display Board Samples ~ Inspire Create Share ~ Sleepless Stamper

I’ve got a post packed with fun to share with you today!  I’ll be back later with our Artisan Blog Hop post, but for now, this is the start of my samples that were on the Display Boards at Convention.   Be sure to check back in the coming weeks and also make sure to scroll down for links to all of the Display Stampers. We’ve got a pinterest board for you to keep track of our projects in one easy place as well, just click on the Display Board Samples photo above to take you there.  It was an honor to be a part of this group of stampers and to create to provide inspiration for all of you at convention and here in our posts!

These samples all feature the Amazing Birthday stamp set.  When I was creating my samples I tried to create in sets so that they could be used and I could offer them as a themed class.  I’ll be offering this set as a class coming up soon so if you are local and want to come and join me to create this set, you’re welcome to come stamp with me!

Now, here is the matchy, matchy set of cards I created with the Amazing Birthday stamp set.

Convention Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Sleepless Stamper

I had set out with some different ideas on how to use each of the stamps in this set and came up with a variety of ways to stamp with them. I think this more obvious use of this stamp is my favorite from this ensemble!  I used Coastal Cabana, Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate and Basic Black.  After embossing the card front with the Big Shot and an this fun new embossing folder, I ran my Whisper White craft ink pad over the top to give it a little something extra.

Convention Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Sleepless Stamper

This next one, was a little more work. I punched holes that I would set the greetings behind, then filled in some of the black space by adhering colored circles to the black before embossing with the embossing folder.  The black layer is actually attached with dimensionals to pop it up from the greetings.  I love that Hand-Carved background stamp.  I stamped it with Whisper White ink and just let it dry rather than heat embossing it.

Convention Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Sleepless Stamper

The last two here I made as notecards.  Here’s one that combines a couple of the greeting stamps.

Convention Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Sleepless Stamper

For this last notecard-sized care, I used half of the banner image to make smaller banners so I was actually able to get enough for two cards from each stamp.  Since I planned to offer classes with all of these cards and many of my display samples, I made duplicates for myself to keep so this worked out great!

Convention Display Samples ~ Amazing Birthday ~ Sleepless Stamper

Let me know if you have any questions!

I hope you received lots of inspiration at convention and here with all of our samples on display on our blogs.  Keep checking back, each one of us has 24 samples with you! Click on each person’s name below to hop straight over to their blog!

Artisan Wednesday Wow ~ For the Tooth Fairy

July Hop Button

Welcome back again to another week … nearing the end of our run.. of Artisan Wednesday Wow!  The days and weeks can really slow down now. There is no need to rush things .. it’s summer after all and we love working together!  We are sure gonna miss being a team! .. all that said though, it IS convention week and while I am not there and am at home missing all of my SU friends and my ADT sisters, I am super excited to hear all of the exciting news and updates and to see who our next ADT will be! I’m excited to follow their creations over the next year too and hope that you’ve enjoyed this year so far!

Now, on with some more of my series of starry projects that I made to share with you! We’ve had a little one with teeth that seem to be falling out all over the place lately so I made him a tooth fairy container.. well, not to contain the tooth fairy, she certainly won’t fit in here but to hold his teeth until she flaps her wings and comes to deposit some money in exchange for those little teeth of his. Here’s the cute little container that put a big smile upon his face!

AWW ~ Tooth Fairy ~ Sleepless Stamper

When you get a better look at this, you’ll see that it is an altered Stampin’ Up! embellishment container.  I’ve seen some of these altered before (I’m pretty sure my fellow ADT member, Erica did a Valentine one this year that was super cute!) and I think I’ve even come across one done as a tooth fairy container.. but with some stars sitting around from a project I made to send to convention for the display boards and a whole tonne of these containers that I’ve been saving for projects, this little project just came together! We’re pretty happy with it’s cuteness!

AWW ~ Tooth Fairy ~ Sleepless Stamper

I covered the outside and lined the inside with some Island Indigo DSP  and Island Indigo Cardstock.  I cut them with the circle framelits and the Starburst Framelits.  Then, I used the Alphabet Rotary stamp to stamp ‘Tooth Fairy’. .. I really love that rotary stamp, whenever I need a word that I don’t have in stamp form, it’s super easy to make it myself with this fun jumbo stamp!

AWW ~ Tooth Fairy ~ Sleepless Stamper

If you’ve got little ones who are in need of a safe place to store those teeth until the Tooth Fairy arrives, you can recreate this one or custom make it to suit your little one’s favorite colors in a snap! .. this one would even be super cute done up in these colors and using the Photo-Poly set, Calling all Heroes to create fun party favors for little boys .. minus the Tooth Fairy title of course!

Now, let’s go see what Becky has to share today.. I wish I was going to see all the girls in real life this week but hope to catch up with them sometime real soon ….maybe a road trip one day?!

July Next Button

Have a great time and safe travels to convention if you are headed there! I’ll excitedly follow all the news!

Artisan Wednesday Wow ~ You’re Fabulous Box of Cards

July Hop Button

Welcome back to another week of Artisan Wednesday Wow!

We’ve got plenty more fun to share with you this week! My project comes to you in the form of this sweet little box.   This set of 3 x 3 is packaged up in the 3.5″ x 3.5″ Kraft Gift Box.  It’s the perfect little gift to give a party host or someone special.  Have a peek!

AWW ~ Fab Card Set ~ Sleepless Stamper

I used the High Five Stamp set and some Hello Honey ribbon to make the belly band. The line under-lining the ‘You’re Fabulous!’ is again stamped with the Thick Baker’s Twine with Block C and just one wrap around of twine.

AWW ~ Fab Card Set ~ Sleepless Stamper

Once inside you can see how perfectly these little 3 x 3′s fit inside that box.

AWW ~ Fab Card Set ~ Sleepless Stamper

You’ll notice that the pattern on the card front is not in the High Five stamp set.. Instead of using a stamp, I wrapped one of my clear blocks (B) in Thick Baker’s Twine and used that as my stamp to create a background.  See below for a simple tutorial on how to do this.

AWW ~ Fab Card Set ~ Sleepless Stamper

I also cut the ribbon in half to make it a little thinner for this mini-sized card.

AWW ~ Fab Card Set ~ Sleepless Stamper

Now, here’s how I stamped that twine background.
