SEPTEMBER 2016 BLOG HOP

Blog-hop-logo

Blog Hop


I got a late start on this challenge.  This has been my norm of late...
I am gearing up to make my Christmas merchandise, treat containers, bottle tags, gift card holders, gift tags and bags, hot cocoa folders...
LOTS of all of these things...

So, this is what I came up with.
Literal Susan! That is me!
But in my defense, Peaceful Pinecones is one of my all-time favorites.
I love, love, love it.

Thank you for looking at my blog!

Make It Monday #261

Masculine-still

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and florals on a masculine project.

I absolutely LOVE Autumn Adornments!
When I decided to use it for my floral, it really made me wish we had a die.


I don't make very many single layer cards...
Why should I? Hallmark does...


Anyway, this one is single layer, but I love the Autumn spray...a LOT!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

CREATE ALONG WITH US: SEPTEMBER 2016

I finally got around to making a card for the Create Along With Us.

We have had a rough summer at the Beauchaine household.
Out sweet Springer Spaniel Abby who turned 14 in July got really sick. She was sick most of the summer, much worse than we realized. Anyway last week we had to put her to sleep...It broke our hearts...we loved that dog SO MUCH. She was amazing!

So...life goes on. We know what worse is...we have been there, too.

I LOVE Dawns idea of cutting off the top of the Basic bookmarks and flipping them.
I did discover you cannot just use the part you cut off...you need another top!

 Dawns new set New Every Morning is such a great set.
It has some great scriptures and other encouraging phrases.

I used Spring Woods because, well, why not?


One of the Modern Stencil's and clear embossing paste made the background panel.
I just love that stuff...great subtle texture.

MAKE IT MONDAY #259 - OMBRÉ CLUSTER STAMPING

DSC_7798.1

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and ombré cluster stamping.

I really like this technique. I really LOVE Dawns card!
I am so glad she went with The blue/green colors. Then I could do the berry colors!!!

So this was my second attempt.
The first, Vintage Linen didn't turn out all that great.
The images were a bit large and it got crowded.

So plan B was Forget-Me-Not


I liked it a LOT better.
I still might have used too many flowers in comparison to Dawn...
I popped up 3 smaller blooms to add dimension.


I LOVE, love the Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Lovely Lady combo!

Here is my Vintage Linen card. It's ok but I just think the images are big so it lacks any randomness...


Fun technique Dawn.
I need to stamp up a bunch of these...
with smaller images, of course!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #258: COVER PLATE TAGS

IMG_3619

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and Cover Plate Tag.

Another crazy week with little stamping time.


I made 3 tags this afternoon.

For the first one I used In the Woods.  



The cover Plate on this one is from the Basket Die.
I added a Die cut from Just a Number


This last one is from Winter Woods Cover Plate.


It was fun to see what I had and what I could use for this challenge.
Great source of inspiration for tag making!
Thanks Laurie

AUGUST 2016 BLOG HOP

Blog-hop-logo

August Blog Hop

I have still been super busy and I didn't have time to make my card ahead of time...

Here is what I managed this afternoon...


I used Woodblock Prints Stencil and Lovely Lady ink.
I went a bit pinker than the photo...


Tulip Time stems gave me the look of the paintbrushes.
I did those in Gray...pretty un-classical for me!


I did want to work the creamy tan in, so I sponged a bit of Fine linen ink and I cut my Amazing word from Dawn's It's the Thought die from Fine Linen paper.

Not a bad interpretation for me...not totally literal! YAY!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

CREATE ALONG WITH US: AUGUST 2016

Create-along-with-us-heading
Create a project utilizing inspiration you've seen during release week. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product.


DSC_7716.1

I chose to use Dawns Bible journaling as my inspiration.

I bought the same bible she did.
There are not a ton of choices and I wanted a pretty one...

So...

I took a lot of pictures.
I am not done with these pages. I want to get a package of multi-color highlighters and go in and highlight the scripture I stamped.
The last couple of weeks have been crazy busy...


Colin left to go back for his Senior year at KU...:(
He is not far away, but I still miss him.
He helped me get some projects done around the house...so I haven't had a lot of time...


The above picture is the back of the page from above,
It does bleed through but you gotta let that go.


I LOVE using the outline images from Floral Sketches...
So soft and pretty


Praises and phrases is a great set to use.





You do get bleeding...let it go!!!








I LOVE the page above...the starburst is from Bloomers...


Berry Sorbet stamps really pretty but is really noticeable on the other side...


I still have a ton of stamps to go through.

I could spend all day stamping in my bible, but I have my mission work to do.
I totally consider it a form of worship.
This is not my study bible.

Thank you for looking at my blog!
