Mom's Day Ideas

I have been having an absolute crazy week and I was supposed to be a part of a Mom's Day Blog Hop and somehow I got bumped from the final line up, not sure what happened but whatever! I did create the card and a present that I am giving my mom for Mother's Day this year so I am ahead of the game! LOL
I made this card using the flowers in the pot from the Lettering Delights "Spring is Bliss" SVG set, I just love this svg set it has so many great images! I also used the print and cut feature of MTC for the sentiment and I used my Cuttlebug and the Sizzix Dots embossing folder to give the background some texture.

These are going to be the gift I give my Mom for Mother's Day this year. I grow many herbs and cook with them, my Mom doesn't but wants to start using more fresh herbs in her cooking, Parsley and Basil are two great herbs to start with. I used vinyl and MTC to embellish these two small ceramic plant pots. I am growing the herbs from seed outside and I will put the plants into the pots next Saturday so they can grow as much as possible. I think she is really going to love this give!

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday

Isn't this just the cutest card for a man card! I love it!! I used Joy's Live "You're So Punny" stamp set for the sentiment and DaVine swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder and my Cuttlebug to create the water. The wave on the boat is part of the paper piecing and that is from My Scrap Chick's "Bears Gone Fishing" Mini Collection. I used papers from my scrap collection and I hand cut the clouds and doodled the birds and the S.S. Minnow boat name (tee hee, I do hope he had a better trip that the original S.S. Minnow!) I also used some chalk ink to highlight the edges of the individual pieces of the paper piecing. I hope y'all like it. If you get a minute, please go over to my Facebook fan page and like me, I am going to do a giveaway when I reach 100 fans! (I also have not forgotten about picking the winner of the last blog hop, my life is crazy with my Husband having some emergency medical issues lately, I am going to get to it I hope this weekend!)

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday

I created this card in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Super Joy's Anniversary! I used Joy's Life's "Lots of Puns" stamp set for the sentiment. The hugging bears is from My Scrap Chick's "Valentine Bears" cut collection and the double loop mat is a Martha Stewart look alike svg file I have in my collection. The white mat on top of the double loop mat is embossed with hearts, using the Cuttlebug and then I used chalk to highlight the hearts, it is very subtle but a very nice touch. I used some twine from The Twinery and my Irock to attach some bling to complete the card! I hope y'all like it!Make sure you head over to Super Joy's website, she has a special giveaway for someone who comments on today's Design Team post.
Alos, y'all have until midnight tonight to comment on the Peeps Blog hop post to be entered into the blog candy drawing. I will draw tomorrow morning (if everything goes well! LOL) Have a great crafty day!!!

Peeps Blog Hop

I made y'all 5 projects today! The first one is this Peeps Train, I just love it and have it displayed as you walk into my front door, I plan on filling the cars with Easter candy so guests (and my 2 year old) can munch away happily! (I am gonna make sure I buy candy that I do not like! LOL) I used the "Santa's Train" svg set from SVGcuts.com for my train and the peeps are from the SVGcuts.com "Easter Morning Egg Hunt" svg set. The papers are Recollections for the solids, the printed paper is a digi paper from Lettering Delights " Eggstra Special" paper pack and the glitter paper is from Hobby Lobby it is Doodlebug Design Inc. paper.
My next project was a quick one, using a freebie from Lettering Delights and Peeps from SVGcuts.com "Easter Morning Egg Hunt" svg collection.I even used some real live peeps! LOL This is a great presentation to give some goodies to a Good Kid or Kid-at-Heart!

I also made a quick card using Lettering Delights " Peep" svg set (I used #4) , the sentiment is from Joy's Life "Wildlife Puns" Stamp Set and the Peeps are from SVGcuts.com's "Easter Morning Egg Hunt" svg set.

My 4th project is kind of tongue-in-cheek, Somehow, the whole Peep Corral idea popped into my head and refused to leave! I thought about doing an Easter explosion box but decided to just have some fun! I cut out a white picket fence twice and some grass twice. The grass is from SVGcuts.com's "Easter Morning Egg Hunt" and the Picket Fence is from SVGcuts.com's "My Happy Garden Hideaway" svg collection. I used Make-the-Cut and SCAL to make the "Peep Corral" sign. I prefer SCAL for working with fonts so I created the title in SCAL and exported it as an svg and then opened the svg in MTC to create the shadow and do the cutting. (sounds like way more work than it really is!) The font that I used is called "Fairlane" and I liked it, kinda 60's-ish to me. So my Peeps are all corralled and are no longer leaving colored sugar all over the house!
My final project was one of those, "I was tired and this silly thought occurred to me and I should have just gone to bed or the couch" kind of thoughts but, I ran with it so I hope it is worth a good laugh, I giggled and laughed a lot! If I was telling the truth (which I am NOT) I would say that both my 4th and 5th projects where goofy but they were fun!My Pirate Peep was created using Lettering Delights "Hat Hoopla"and the eye patch is from Lettering Delights "Aye Matey"  both are svg sets. I used a toothpick to hold on the hat. He is totally the cutest pirate I have ever met!! LOL
I do have some candy up for grabs, a pack of AC Cardstock Foil 5x7 size (perfect for card making), a Cuttlebug folder, a white gel pen and a couple of other goodies too (these are a few of my favorite things!)!! So leave a comment and check out all of the other blogs too, here is the list.

I used digital papers and scraps from my collection, a Peachy Keen face (from the PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment)and a gumdrop jewel (given to me my Kim from Cutter's Creek)and with some doodling with both white (on the flower) and black (on the brick wall) gel pens, I have a great funny Oopsy Daisy card!!

You're A Hoot

Isn't this the cutest card ever! LOL I just love it! I used the Lettering Delights svg set "Mulberry Lane" image #8 and Joy's Life "Wildlife Puns" stamp set to create this card/ I also made it a shaped card and the branch is from the Lettering Delights svg set "Felt Owl Right" image #14. The Lettering Delights Dollar Days ends mid month (so through this week anyway) We all need to go and make sure we have purchased all of the $1 fonts, graphics, paper packs, etc. and $2 svg sets that we want before they go back to regular price! Also Joy has new stamps out and they are available for pre order, her stamps are the best!! One more quick note, I have created a Facebook fan page for OBX Stamping & Crafting and I would just LOVE it if you would go over and "Like" me. If there is a problem with the link on the right side of the page, someone please let me know!, I can't tell since I already "like" the page! Thanks so much and I am saving up some great blog candy for when we reach 500 followers, so tell your crafty friends! Have a great crafty day!

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday

The Super Fabulous Joy has new stamps!! I used Joy's "You're So Punny" stamp set for this super cute Gnome card.  This card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and I used Tim Holtz distress ink "Faded Jeans", a foam applicator and a piece of scrap paper to create the cloud background and the grass is the negative of some Martha Stewart "Seasonal Cake Art" cartridge grass. The Gnomes are from Lettering Delights "Good Luck Gnomes" and since Lettering Delights extended their Dollar Days sale, it is only $2!!!!! The faces are from Peachy Keen's PK-490 "Everyday Character Faces Assortment. I am so osrry I am late this morning, my laptop is broken and we are waiting for parts, it is so hard to get into the office and to the desktop, not to mention I do not have all of my files on the desktop! I will be back later today to announce the winner of the April Fools Day Blog Hop! Have a Super day everyone!

Editing to add winner of April Fools Day Blog Hop!!
