Flutterby Special

Two posts in two days? There's some excitement here on the old blog-o this week! I know I haven't been here for a while. I was dealing with a few personal issues that left the mojo in a ditch. Not to mention a lost camera battery so photography was also on hold.

Then, wonder of wonders, I learned my mom was being honored for her contributions to education over the course of her career. So it was off to Jamaica for some family time and a little "sun in the fun". I got to see my sister and her kiddos, and of course, watch my mom receive her award. At this point, the camera battery had been found and charged and... left at home! LOL. Luckily I had my phone and my momma's camera so I was still able to get some photos of the happy event. Hurray. Hurray. But... if I share those photos I may lose "preferred daughter status", so here are a few cards instead.

The sentiment on this first card is absolutely meant for my amazing mom. I feel so lucky to have her in my life. And I hope I make her feel the same - when I'm not making her crazy. LOL.

I tried a little inlaid die-cutting using the SSS Devonshire and Paulina butterfly dies, white cardstock, and my Touch Twin markers. There is also some Distress inking and a|s Splash! spray on the top panel.

Here's my second attempt:

And, yes, this one also goes out to a very special lady. Love you momma!

Supplies Used
stamps: HA year round sentiment, flower bursts pattern, thank you definition
cardstock: PTI white, CTMH grey wool
ink: Memento london fog, SSS black, Distress dried marigold, a|s Splash! in bermuda & winter sky
other: SSS devonshire & paulina butterfly dies, ShinHan Art touch twin brush, glossy accents, corner chomper

Hugs and Kisses.

Shake Shake Shake

Hey there. Just a quick post today.

After looking at the many shaker cards taking the crafty world by storm, I finally decided to take the plunge and give it a try.

My first attempt actually turned into two cards. Look:

I made these cards for my coworkers, and now that they've received them, I can share here with everyone. Both cards feature Sushi Dolls stamp "One & Owl". She's coloured with Touch Twin markers.

So here's the blondie I made for my girl, "A":
Touch Twins Used
skin - YR26, YR27 Y36, R139, B67
hair - YR31, YR33, Y34
clothes - B63, B66, B67, R135, R136, R140
owl - YR25, YR27, YR33, Y222, CG2, R131, B171, BG1

And the brunette for "N":
Touch Twins Used

clothes - R135, R136, R140, B63, B66, B67,
owl - BR107, BR112, BR113, BR114, BR115

Both ladies are shaking up a storm so it's safe to say these cards are a hit. I may need to create some more very soon...
