A Little Inspiration Form Mom... (FMU129)

It's my week to host the challenge at The Friday Mash Up! When I began to think of a challenge for this week, I knew it was a little too early for Halloween, but most of us would be excited for the start of fall. I just so happened to be looking through my mom's painting blog and saw an older painting she had done of an apple. I love this painting so much and am always in awe of her talent.  I thought it would be fun to use something she created to inspire something for us to create! So, for this week, take a look and show us how this cute little painting inspires you!

Artisan Wednesday Wow- I {HEART} Candy Corn!

Hello! Welcome back to the Artisan Wednesday Wow Blog hop! Today is our last project from the "Halloween" box as I'm calling it.  I've LOVED everything in this box...

Today's project is a cute little banner I made with the Simply Created Banner Kit. I was inspired by a "dip dyed" banner on the SU blog about a month ago. I immediately thought "I can do that Candy Corn style!" I simply used blue painters tape and my Stampin' Spritzers. It was so easy and the tape really held the ink back from each section!



I once again created the word "candy corn" in MDS using the Typeset Alphabet Punches. I merged it into the Cameo and cut it out of a Window Sheet. I then used it as a stencil and inked it with Sponge Daubers. I did the same with the heart. The "i" is an already made stencil in the banner kit. 

I embellished it with some burlap ribbon that has the awesome Stampin' Glitter on the ends. I used my Two Way Glue and rubbed it right in. It worked beautifully!

I finished it off with a couple of bows made from Basic Black Chevron Ribbon and a few Designer Buttons. I hot glued it all together and put it on short dowel rods. It will eventually be stuck down in my giant candy bowl! I couldn't buy the candy this early... y'all know what happens to candy when it's bought a month early right? please tell me I'm not the only one!! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by again and now your off to  my good friend Jane Lee!  I can't wait to see her project this week! Leave her and the rest of the design team some love!

Ja Ja Ja... (HSS169)

Good morning! I'm back today with a great sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments!

I had fun with this sketch. I created a custom stamp for a very special friend of mine...
Ja Ja (apparently) means ha ha in spanish. My bestie Erin and I live in San Antonio where a large part of the population speaks spanish. But, we don't... So, we like to think ourselves bilingual sometimes and... nah, who am I kidding, we can't speak a lick of Spanish! But, we do like to say and write ja jajajajaja.. It's one of our silly "inside" joke. So, I made a stamp with the Undefined Stamp Kit that say's Ja and I stamped it on the inside and the outside of this card. And of course, the "I freaking" love you comes from the Yippie Skippie set.

Erin has been a great friend to me over the last couple of years and I wanted to make her a card to let her know how much I appreciated her. Sadly, I made this card over a month ago and JUST  put it in the mail yesterday... Sigh... And, a little bit of trivia, Erin and I both live in San Antonio, BUT we actually met at the SU Convention in Salt Lake City a few years ago. Crazy right? I love SU so much for the reason alone!!

OK, enough of my babbling... Hop over to HSS and see what my other friends have created! Don't forget, you have two weeks to make your own card! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
