mama messy bun

 hi!

 

Sometimes you just have to make a card for yourself ♥ 

Wish me luck this week as I try to get Bree to get through all of her schoolwork early enough that we still have time to swim. And let's hope I can keep Emma from rioting ☺

inky paws challenge 132 happiness is a good book

 hi!

 

I have my second card for the Inky Paws Challenge #132 sketch today! Doesn't this card just look cozy?! I stamped my images from the Sips and Stories stamp set on a stitched rectangle I die cut from the Frames and Flags die set. I masked the images off to ink up the floor and then colored everything in with Copic markers. I stenciled my background with the Houndstooth stencil and I loved the color so much I just couldn't add any ink to it ♥

i made a teensy scarf!

 hi!

 Y'all. I knitted a teeny tiny little scarf with embroidery floss and toothpicks this week! (and for some reason I decided to use purple, my absolute least favorite color?) 

Anyways, I love how this turned out, dropped stitches and all. 

I'm off to the beach in North Carolina for a week today but I've got all of my posts done for next week! ♥

miss your face ♥

 hi!

 

This one is super clean and simple because i didn't want to distract too much from that gorgeous stamp! I love her ♥ and I love that whenever i color a cute looking chick with a brunette messy bun my daughter says it looks like me ☺

 

We're heading out for a week's vacation at a beach house today and Bree asked if i was bringing cardmaking stuff and i said there wasn't room in the car. She said i should totally bring it with us because it makes me happy and that she could hold it on her lap in the car, then she ran to her room and brought me a paper chickfila bag (that she had colored as a hand puppet) and told me i could put my cardmaking stuff in there and she would hold it for me 😂 I think if i pack any cardmaking stuff it might take a smidge more space than the paper bag 😏

happy (almost) fall!

 hi!

 

I love this little fall scene, although i kept the leaves and the background as one layer, and i definitely had regrets about my leaf masking choices when i was trying to ink up my background and the masks kept wiggling off!

 

Come on fall! bring on the chilly temperatures (ha! it usually doesn't even get cold enough for a hoodie until late November here), the colorful leaves, and pumpkin everything!

autumn fairy

 hi!

 

Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls, Senioritas, and Tiny Townies are probably my very favorite things to color ever. This little leaf-clad lady is definitely no exception, she's so cute! 

I've discovered that with a little bit of planning and prep work that I can still get a lot done while i'm sitting next to Bree for virtual school all day and i can not lose my mind. (well, not lose my mind any more than i already have...) I try to have my next 4 or 5 cards stamped and ready to color and fussy cut during the times when Bree's doing more independent work or watching school videos. I just carry my Ikea cart downstairs to our dining room (virtual school central) every morning and then it's easy for me to pick up my work whenever my full attention isn't needed and it's simple enough that i can always drop it immediately when she needs help again. Hooray for small victories ☺

inky paws challenge 132 pumpkin spice season!

 hello!

 

Today is the start of a new Inky Paws Sketch Challenge! I made a pumpkin spice card with a pretty monochromatic houndstooth background using the pretty new Houndstooth Stencil.  

I stamped my images with a little bit of masking from the Pumpkin Latte stamp set on a stitched rectangle cut with the Frames and Flags die set. I colored them in and added the sentiment. I added that panel to a card base i had stenciled with the houndstooth stencil and some ranger texture paste (love love love this new stencil!). I finished the card off with a wood veneer flag cut with the Frames and Flag die set and a small strip of ribbon. Hooray for fall!

inky paws challenge 131 pretty purple flowers

Hello!

 

Today is the start of a new Inky Paws Color Challenge with purple, orange, white, and teal. Link a card up to the challenge in the next two weeks for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store.

 

I blocked off a little rectangle of my background for the pretty Floral Lace stencil then die cut that piece with the scalloped and stitched rectangle from the Frames and Flags die set. Then I added some colored and fussy cut Peony Blooms. (purple is definitely not a color i'm comfortable with so i'm really happy with how the flowers turned out, also i feel like i got away with adding the teensiest amount of orange allowable ☺) I embossed my sentiment on vellum and fussy cut that out to finish the card.

This is our last week of summer, Bree goes back to (virtual) school the day after Labor Day!
