Vertical Easel Card with Lost Coast Designs!

 The theme is Critters at the Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity! Challenge #126 is all about the Critters!!!!   I used the wonderful stamp Whimsical Flora and the sentiment is from Party Words!  The card is the vertical version of an easel card and I got the directions from Iced Images on Youtube.  Here are photos of it from above and folded flat.





I don't usually make cards that require me to think too much but the videos on this channel are quiet easy to follow along with!   So this one goes to:

July 24 Christmas in July Blog Hop with Leigh!

 Time for Yeti Claws to come to town!  

Yeti Wishes!
I tried my hand at paper blocking to make a nice background for a print from my Gelli plate session waaay back at the beginning of this blog hop!  Leigh's Yeti (Winter Yeti Build-A-Scene Set) is colored with Prisma colored pencils and staying warm with some accessories from A Very Yeti Christmas Add-On Set!  I also used a sign from the Yeti Senti Sign Post Add-On Set to wish all a festive Christmas in July!  Everything was fussy cut and glued on the embossed Gelli print with a final sprinkling of glitter and white confetti that I dumped all over my floor!😮  Before I get that cleaned up I am going to pop this in the Christmas in July Blog Hop presented by LeighSBDesigns!  All the deets and the linky party are HERE!

July 23 Christmas in July Blog Hop with Leigh!

 This little precious snowman is by Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  He is looking up and catching snowflakes on his tongue and this design is Catching Snowflakes!  This store has everything on sale for one dollar right now!  He didn't have eyes but I glued his nose too far down and he looked kinda goofy so I added some anime type eyes in Procreate to the finished card.  Yep, I cheated! 😔


I used the svg file with Cricut Design Space and didn't have any issues.  I say this because, as you know, I often do! :)  I used foam for his nose, clothes and tongue; it is blue cause the snowflakes are cold!  I sprinkled some glitter on the snowflakes to give them some shine and heat embossed the sentiment, which is from Lost Coast Designs, Party Words.  The background paper is from the set the little sloth was from (Making Cards and Papercrafting).   He is going in the linky at LeighSBDesigns!
All the details and linky party are HERE!  We have two more days to play!

July 22 Christmas in July Blog Hop with Leigh!

 I found this cute little Christmas stamp set on Etsy at YupiYeiGraphics.   I copied a few of the images on some cardstock, colored them up and fussy cut.  The papers are from a set gifted me by Gwyneth years ago and I think about her kindness each time I see these lovely papers!

The backdrop is from Pixabay (I want to say Pexels) and I just dropped my card on top of the lovely Christmas craft table!  The heart is cut from another piece of the papers and I tried a lot of faux stitching but Susan definitely is the pro!  I don't know how she makes me think every hop that I can pull off the stitching!😋  Also not sure how I am editing every yellow colored paper I own in this retina burning glow!  Grab those sunglasses and read on!😎  Actually, just need to tell you that this one is going to the Christmas in July Blog Hop presented by LeighSBDesigns!
And thanks once again to Susan R. for this cute challenge I keep forgetting to enter!

I answered yes to the two questions about Christmas preparations and a Christmas stash AND have a ribbon on the digital image holding the ornament AND for the Double Dare I am entering this at Heart2Heart's Christmas in July.   Here is there info for this challenge!  
It is all about Christmas in July!   For this challenge they are paring up with Double Trouble and suspending the requirement to use Close To My Heart products for this challenge ONLY.

Vintage Kittens Play

Mixed media art is one of my favorite things but I have been soooo lazy lately (well, a few years maybe?)!  I sit down and my mind goes to some neat techniques to use then the ultimate question pops up....Do I want to chase down all the supplies involved?  The answer is always NO 😞  I haven't given up on the whole process and to prove it I have this little project!

I kinda faked mixed media by stamping in a couple of different inks, using some stickle type things, using some glue mixed with pink Gelato through a stencil and gluing some beads and sequins.  The image is free from Free Pretty Things For You!  This image is included with 7 others and each one is so vintage and wonderful!  I am going to enter this at Ike's Show Us Your Pussycat Cat Lover's Challenge for July!





July 21 Christmas in July Blog Hop with LeighSBDesigns!

Tonight I am using a super cute little sloth freebie from Making Cards & Papercraft, November, 2020.  Let me say I absolutely LOVE sloths and this love has become visible only in the last couple of years???  Where was my love for sloths in my younger years??  Don't know but I love 'em now!  The freebie came with two snow papers that I would have used if that ole printer issue with ink had been fixed but it wasn't so I just used two papers from a really old Christmas pad.

I added some Glossy Accents to the lights and his little cheeks and some snow aka. glitter. This is going straight to the Christmas in July Blog Hop hosted by LeighSBDesigns!


 

ExPosed for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

 This one is for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers #189 X is for X-posed!  I always have a fun time playing here so I don't know how it slips my mind for months on end!  I took the whole exposing a medium as a fake for my take on this one!   The senti is coming from my own weight experience during the last couple of years! 😛  So here is to anyone who doesn't like my weight right now!

I enlarged the sentiment because I tried two different pairs of glasses and the top one was staying fuzzy!
The image is from Gecko Galz Fortune Has It digital collage sheet.  The rest was just some papers, glue and some bling with a touch of Distress Oxide Spray for some orbs on the sentiment!
And here just cause it makes me laugh is Edna on the badge for this challenge!
