This is the card I am submitting to the HOUSE MOUSE & FRIENDS
for their current challenge theme: 

Think I'll submit this view as it show the glossy effect I used on the glass and kiddo says it also makes the drink look fizzy. : )

Love this angle shot showing the backside of the card a bit too. Unfortunately it doesn't really show off the glossy effect on the glass though.

  1. Used a 'Summer' rub-on in the bottom corner of patterned paper. 
  2. Wrapped some cotton candy pink & white bakers twine around the patterned paper before affixing it to the card base. 
  3. Tucked a 'haute' pink ticket stub into a paper clip and tucked both to the edge of the patterned paper.
  4. The chipboard 'smile' sentiment pops up off the card with foam tape.
  5. The HOUSE MOUSE stamped image was colored with a combination of copics and other markers till I was satisfied with the results.
  6. The pink flower that finishes the card is sweet and it actualy came to me via a swap on PCP and I decided to use it here with the help of my kiddo who said it looked like a Hawaiin flower and fit the SUMMER theme.
  7. Voila!
Happy with the final result and love the HAPPY colors and patterned papers I used.  : )

Now to ' wish me luck !' in the challenge LOL HERE

'On a Roll' making - HOUSE MOUSE - Bday Cards

Funny how things work out sometimes.  The other night I decided to make a stack of blank solid colored card bases to have on hand when my mojo hits me.  Smack!  LOL  ; ) 

The next night I decide to dig deep into my never ending scrap pile and pull out patterned paper pieces to fit the bases.  Not giving much thought to a completed card, just grabbing a piece of patterned paper, plus a card base to stick together with my dwindling bit of double sided tape.

wOw,  not too shabby - now I have card bases with patterned papers already stuck to them how handy is that?!

Well pretty handy LOL

The next night I spotted some stamped images that could use some coloring with my teensy weensy supply of copic markers.  LOL  Needless to say I stayed up late cause I was having so much fun coloring in my new  HOUSE MOUSE stamp. 

Guess what happened next?

Yup,  I put 2 + 2 together after spotting the stack of card bases all ready to go and my stack of colored images.

Just before my friend flew off to her cousins for a little visit I spotted the bag of scalloped circles we did using her Spellbinders.  I don't own any yet - can U believe it?  I know, neither can I.  LOL  ; ) 

Well my MOJO hit me SMACK in the face and I got to work fast and with much enthusiasm with the card bases, colored images and the scalloped circles.  Now while I am on a roll I start to panick just a little (AH!) because my bestie (that's my word for a best friend) won't be back for over a week and I know I am going to run out of scalloped circles.  LOL  ; )  When I do, that's it - till she gets back and we can have another play date & I can use her Spellbinders again.  LOL

Well I kept going till I ran out of double sided tape and foam squares.  : )  Now I have lots of cute House Mouse stamped & colored cards all ready to go.  Some for friends & some for family Bdays, and some for my etsy shop.  Woot Woot!  : )

Here is a sampling of my cards made with
my new HOUSE MOUSE stamp


Father's Day Jacket Card

This is my first attempt @ a Jacket Card using a template from Lyn's challenge @ PCP as a jumping off point.  I made a few adjustments along the way.  I think it turned out pretty spiffy.  I used brown striped paper for the shirt, brown cardstock for the jacket and blue satin ribbon for the tie. 

Hubby and I had found a cute 'SNOOPY - ACE' tie tack @ Value Village earlier this spring and had to buy it for his dad because he flies airplanes and has a collection of  'Snoopy - Ace' items.  So this turned out to be the perfect way to present him his tie tack.  Much cuter than in a box I think.

I was so pleased @ how easy this was to put together and how well it turned out. 

I rounded the corners on my card @ the shoulder point and the jacket front bottom center.  It was an after thought - I like the idea of the shoulders being rounded off instead of sharp square edges.  Of course my corner punch couldn't go through all these layers so I hand cut the corners.  Next time I will round the pieces before hand now that I know I like the soft rounded shoulders. 

I also did a double fold ribbon for the pocket handkerchief and tucked the end of the tie tack safety chain into the pocket and thought it kinda looks like a pocket watch might be tucked in there too.  ; )

I made some modifications to the collar too - cut it longer and gave it some body to curve it and give it more of a 3d shape.  Only wish I had some teeny tiny buttons to add for even more detail.  Oh and I also did my own take on the jacket collar as I wanted it to carry upward and over the shoulders like a real jacket.

I made some Tim Holtz tickets and just hand penned the details.  I turned them into little coupons that dad can use for a home cooked meal and dessert on us.  The third just says Happy Father's Day and has todays date on it.

I will do this one again. 

I hope you will make one too and share a link here in my comments to see yours.  : )
