Loonie Stampers challenege #107 - rainbows

Today Dee selected for us to use rainbows and at first I thought she meant to use the colors of the rainbow, but she meant actual rainbows so please ignore the flower in the color map above. haha that was my blonde moment for the week.

But I did catch that mistake BEFORE I made my card so I thought I would dig out some buttons (turns out I have hundreds laying around) and used them in my own version of a rainbow.

thanks for checking out y card today and dont forget to see what bright sunshiny rainbows the girls have posted :)

Loonie Stampers Challenege #106

This week I cheated. Ok so I just wanted to admit that right up front and get it out of the way. We are "supposed" to be using fabric and I used felt. I just couldn't help it. I finally got my wonderful papertrey stuff and I HAD to try out the bookmark die with the felt. So I made this for my friend (I don't know if she will get much use out of it because she is one of those 'read the whole book the same day' kinda girls)

Anyway, even though I cheated, I adorned my bookmark with a great image colored with prismas of course! Now lets go see if I am not alone in the cheating department shall we?!

Wall art

So this is my new Wall Art and I plan on building a photo wall around it. I was blog surfing one day and came across this post and HAD to have one and so I emailed her and a short while later I was able to put this up on my wall. Now I am hooked and want to add my vinyl to my walls, I am just trying to think of what to put in my craft room.

This is a view down my hallway so you can get an idea of how big it is and how much wall I have to surround it with photos...I have a few new frames already I just need to hang them and print more pictures, you know!

It Started with this...

This image is where it all started.
While on the Loonies Vaca Last month, we went to the Bella Store and I bought this cute little image and later that day when we were back at the retreat I used some of Regan's prisma colors and she taught me how to use them! I am SOOOOOO in love with prismas now and the girls heard me say that enough times that they are probably all rolling their eyes now.

Of course I had to make this cute little critter into a GREAT card!
Maybe it will go postal soon *wink*

here is the pretty inside!

thanks for peeking in today...hope everyone is having a super summer

Strawberries anyone?

So this is another set I made...loves it!!!
It is inspired by a post a few months back from Mish Mash, I loved the jars use with the pinks and strawberries.

Well I am heading out to my daughter's 4th Birthday...I may have to come back and share some pictures. Now cross your fingers that we dont have another stupid thunderstorm because it is a beach party

more embellishments

Here is another set I made. I spent hours cutting out flowers using the papertrey dies and felt trim in all the PTI colors. You know what I learned? Those dies are awesome but give me a twitch in my neck trying to get the damn paper out of them after. Thank you Wendy for suggesting I throw it against the wall, she was right it worked every time

School is in....almost!

Well with school just around the corner I have it on the brain. I am also starting to prepare for the fall craft show and I decided to make some embellishments this year. Last year I met so many fellow crafters that I am hoping some sets like these will appeal to others. Now I just have to figure out how to put them on acetate sheets and what glue to use and the packaging as well!!

Loonie Stampers Challenge #104

Good Friday morning to you all!!
This weeks challenge was my picks and I decided to be a bit adventurous with my colors. It may look a bit mean but I did choose some great summery colors and provided the girls with lots of extras to make cheating easy. lol

This is the card that i made...i kinda likes it! I colored the image with my prismas (have I mentioned how much I LOVE PRISMAS?) Any who lets go see if anyone still found a way to cheat. Thanks for popping in! Have a great weekend!
