Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here posting for the month of May for She's A Sassy Lady. Thank you for having me again :) I hope you are doing well. Let me apologize for this post. I've had a crazy busy week. Thursday was my son's birthday (20) and it was so hard to celebrate because we got news in the morning that our Uncle had passed away in his sleep. It is a very emotional time for us because my husband was so close to him. It's so sad that we have no control over our loved ones being taken from us. We are not to understand why on this earth. We just have to go on living and remember them even though it's so hard to live life without them.
Well, my friend loves to bake cupcakes and for her birthday I found this darling apron on From My Kitchen. I used my Gypsy, picked the blackout feature, copied it and welded it to make a card. I then used the layer feature for the front of the card. I also found the cute cupcakes, muffin pan and oven mitt on the same cartridge. I adhered everything on to the card, then used stickles. When I took this picture, the stickles were still wet. The initials L.M.S. are her initials but they are also her cupcake name. Love My Sweets. I think the card came out so cute and she really liked it.
Thank you all for stopping by and I will try to post more regularly. Have a wonderful weekend.
Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for May. Thanks Pam for having me.
I use to paint when I was a kid, you know the paint by numbers kit and I use to put water in a bowl and use a paint brush and my paints to color in my coloring books sometimes instead of my crayons. I have been wanting to get the water pens from Stampin' Up for a while and finally got them. I love them. It is so much fun to use my inks to paint for a change instead of markers all the time.
I also got this adorable stamp set from Stampin' Up called Greeting Card Kids. It's such an adorable stamp set. My mother is always saying how she wishes we were kids again because that was the best part of her life. So I decided to use this little girl holding the heart to let my mother know how much I Love her. "Sniff, Sniff". :)
As you can see, I stamped her several times, just in case I messed up but I was glad I got it the first time. I didn't know how this paper would react, since it's just white card stock and not the water color paper. I will have to get some of that to see the difference. It didn't run or go through, so that was good.
I used Pink Pirouette for her dress and Pink Passion for the trim and bow. I used Chocolate Chip for her hair and Crumb Cake for her skin. I used Riding Hood Red for the heart. I also stamped the sentiments with Riding Hood Red. The sentiments are called My Little Valentine from Stampin' Up.
Here is a close up up of the darling image. I cut her out and added dimensionals to pop her up. I added a little rhinestone to her bow and dazzling details to the hearts and the XOXO. Lastly, I added stitching around the bigger heart with a white gel pen.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by. See you again soon.
Happy Saturday. I am so glad the weekend is here. After working a long busy week, I always look forward to the weekends.
I'm joining the challenge over at My Creative Time For Me (Emma). Glora is the Designer this week and came up with a really cute challenge. Make a set of 4 3" x 3" cards. That's it, easy enough right. I love making this size card because they make cute gift sets. If you are up to an extra challenge, make the cards with a critter theme. I used the small dots embossing folder and embossed each card. I decided to use Emma's cute stamp set called All Around Accessories. That dinosaur is so darn cute. (Are dinosaurs a critter?) LOL I used markers to color them. I added some glossy accents to the eyes, then I cut them out and popped them on dimensionals. The sentiment is from Robyn at My Pink Stamper called Punny-licious. It goes perfect. I used the die from Emma's set Build a Banner Kit to stamp the sentiment and also popped them on dimensionals. I used a cocoa colored ink to ink around the cards.
Go check out Emma's blog to see the awesome cards everyone made. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon. :)
Sheila asked if anyone was willing to take on another day this month and I obliged. :) Thanks Sheila for having me. This is Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room.
OK, so I figured I would do a little tutorial on stamping the Roses. It is a three step process or if you like, you can just do the two steps. I'm sure most of you, if not all of you, know that but, I just wanted to show how I did my project.
You need to stamp lightest ink to darkest, with three colors. I don't have three of the same family in every color, so the Purple Rose and the Red Rose are only stamped twice, but they still look beautiful and the great thing about this stamp set is, if you don't align things just right, no one will know because the roses are so gorgeous, you can't even tell they were stamped a little off.
This is going to be a longer post and picture heavier than usual. Sorry for those who don't like that :( I myself love looking at blogs with lots of pictures :) OK, on with the show.
These are the colors I used, the inks are from Stampin' Up. Red Rose - Real Red and Riding Hood Red, Orange Rose - Summer Sun, Daffodil Delight and Only Orange, Pink Rose - Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Pink Passion, Purple Rose - Lavender Lace and Perfect Plum, Green Rose - Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Always Artichoke. Isn't crafting a wonderful thing? You can make anything any color you like :)
First I cut out all the die cuts using my Cuttlebug. (This set is called The Sweet Life by Paper Trey Ink).
This is the first step. Getting ready to stamp.
This is the second step. Getting ready to stamp.
This is the third step. Getting ready to stamp.
Now for the leaves, that is done in two steps.
First step. Getting ready to stamp.
I ended up having two that were darker because I had the wrong stamp on my block
but, instead of doing them again, I just decided to use them.
Excuse my dirty mouse pad, that is the one that I use to stamp on. I like
stamping on a mouse pad because it works as a cushion and gives a
I used a Green Copic marker - G28 Ocean Green to color popscicle sticks.
I used a tape runner to adhere the leaves to the roses and hot glue to adhere
the roses to the sticks. I wrapped some green pipe cleaner around each stick.
I added them to this cute glass vase. I had dried babies breath from a silk rose and thought it would be pretty to add it to this
There you have it. A Bouquet of Roses. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today. Thanks again Sheila. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here sharing my project for this month for She's A Sassy Lady. :)
I ordered a couple of stamp sets from Paper Trey Ink and was so excited that they came in just in time for my post. I used The Sweet Life stamp set for my card. It's roses and what gorgeous roses they are. It's a three step stamp, you use three colors in the same family. I chose blue since this card is a Mother's Day card for my mother and her favorite color is blue. I also ordered the dies so that I wouldn't have to cut them out, that made it so much easier. Oh my, I can see these roses in every color, just beautiful.
The inks I used are Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise and Not Quite Navy, all from Stampin' Up. For the leaves, I used Crumb Cake and Chocolate instead of greens to get a different look. Isn't it just so pretty?
The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's stamp set called Happiest Moments. I cut out a piece of paper to add as a border. On the bottom layer, I used a punch from Stampin' Up and adhered it under the border.
Thank you Sheila for having me again and Thank you all for stopping by to visit. Enjoy the rest of the week, I think Spring has finally arrived. It's still a little chilly but the sun is shining, so that is a great thing.
Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for the month here at The Bugbytes and also on my blog. Thanks Pam for having me again this month.
My cousin is having a baby boy so I thought I would make a card for her baby shower, which is in June it's a little early, but at least it will be done. I still have to shop for gifts.
The baby bottle is from Gypsy Wanderings. I copied it and welded it together on my Gypsy. The size is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. I cut it out on blue card stock then again in a cream color card stock and cut off the bottom portion, then adhered the top portion to the base, sort of to resemble the nipple.
The cute little elephant is from Cricut Sampler. I added black diamond stickles to his eyes and outlines and Blush Copic marker for his ears and cheeks. The elephant represents my cousin's Nana who passed away, she loved elephants. The sentiments, Congratulations and for your BABY are from a My Pink Stamper stamp set called Happiest Moments.
For your BABY is stamped on a punch from Stampin' Up. The blue bow is hemp from Liz's Paper Boutique and the B is a letter bead from my stash. The baby's name is Robert, named after the Father but they call him Bobby, so I'm sure they will call the baby Bobby also :) if not, the B can stand for Baby :)
Well, I'm glad to share my project with you today. Thank you for stopping by. See you soon.
