Challenges & A Wild Thing Card 5

Hello.  Well, we are still getting freezing rain.  What a terrible day.  But it have gotten a few things done around here.

I wanted to work on some challenges today.  I feel like I have been missing more than I have entered.  Oh well, that is the way things go..  I will do what I can while still relaxing.

I was going to step away from the A Wild Thing set, but when I saw the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, I thought the lion would be perfect for the circle.  Instead of another strip of paper, I added twine. 

If you are coming here from a challenge site, I am using the same stamp set and making several cards from it.  I am working with Stampin Up's A Wild Thing.  I just fell in love with this set.  This is my fifth card and I still have a few more I want to make.  Here is the run down of the other cards.  I will be adding a few more as I get them done.

                  Card 1 - Gray Elephant
                  Card 2 - Back & Front Elephant
                  Card 3 - Back & Front Bear
                  Card 4 - Hello There Honey Bear
                  Card 5 - You are Here
                  Card 6 - ?????????

I am using this card in the following challenges:
   Double D Challenges - Twine
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #448
   Creative Knockouts - Lots of Layers
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes

Off to clean off my desk and see what else I can get made.  Chat with you soon.  Have a great afternoon.

A Wild Thing - Card 4

Hello.  How is everyone?  We are in the middle of a Winter Storm Advisory!  Will we ever get Spring weather?  I think we are going to skip Spring and go straight to Summer, I just hope it doesn't wait until June to get warm.  Unbelievable.

Here is another A Wild Thing card.  I actually made this one early last week, but it was in my to be finished cards.  I still have several more cards, I want to make.  I am working on the lion next.

            Card 1 - Gray Elephant
            Card 2 - Front & Back Elephant
            Card 3 - Front & Back Bear

A Wild Thing - Card 3

Hello again.  One more before I call it a night.

It is similar to the one before.  I did change it up a little.  I thought a yellow circle would make the bees and honeycomb pop.  I also added a beehive texture to the side.  I don't have a sentiment yet, but I will be adding something to the circle.

Don't forget, I am making a bunch of cards using the same stamp set.  Here is the run down on the other cards. I will be changing/adding as I post the other cards.
          Card 1 - Gray Elephant
          Card 2 - Front & Back Elephant
          Card 3 - You are Here
          Card 4 -Hello There Honey Bear
          Card 5 -Yellow Lion
          Card 6 - ????????

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Dies R Us - Anything Goes
   Dream Valley - Dry Embossing
   Fab N Funky - Critters

Off to finish up the other cards.  I will chat with you tomorrow.

A Wild Thing - Card 2

Hello.  How is everyone today?  It has been a extremely busy week for me.  I am so looking forward to the weekend.  I have a Stampin Up class on Saturday and other than that, I am going to relax and enjoy the weekend.  It sounds like a plan, but I am sure I will find things to do around the house.  Including doing some work for my husband's company.  Oh well, I will get some relaxing in.

I have fallen in love with this stamp set.  Yes, it has an elephant in it and that is part of the appeal, but not the only one.  The critters are front and back images and I can think of a dozen things to do with them.  Then there is the cute little bear with the bees.  It even comes with a honeycomb.

I have decided to make up a bunch of cards with it.  Hopefully similar to the 10 cards 1 kit videos you can find on YouTube.  Except I am not doing a video.    I will keep a running list of the cards so you can link to them from each post.  So check back for updated links....

            Card 1 - Gray Elephant
            Card 2 - You are Here
            Card 3 - Back & Front Bear
            Card 4 -Hello There Honey Bear
            Card 5 - Yellow Lion
            Card 6 - ?????

It may take me several days to get all of them done.  I hope I can get them all done....

Now about this card, it is the elephant again.  I used the front and back.   I used the circles on the inside of the card.  And stamped a small Happy Birthday in the white circle.  It is just too adorable.  It think the bow makes it girly so I will have to come up with something without a ribbon for one of the others.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   A Gem of a Challenge - Female Birthday w/Sentiment
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Dies R Us - Anything Goes
   Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
   Crafty Sentiments - For The  Girls
   AudSentiments - Birthday

Off to clean my table and start another one.  Chat with you soon.

A Wild Thing

Hello and happy Friday.  I hope everyone has plans for some crafty time this weekend.  I do.  Tomorrow is my craft day with my buddies.  I can't wait.  I have been making up my kits all week.  I have several cards, I just can't wait to work on.  Hopefully, I will get time on Sunday to post some of them.

My Stampin up order came in on Thursday.  I have several new sets to play with.  The first one is the "A Wild Thing".  I looked at the set originally because of the elephant, but after looking at it.  I just fell in love.  There is just so much you can do with it.  I love that there is a front and back view of all three animals and they match, so you can put them back to back.  The only thing I don't like about them, is that the front and backs are on one stamp so if you only want one side, you have to be careful not to get the ink on both.

I have one card made for today and one kit in my pack for tomorrow. And a few more I want to make over the next few weeks/months. 

I added an elephant to the inside of the card also.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
   Crafty Gals - Anything Goes
   Creative Knockouts - Anything Goes

Off to finish these cards and clean off my table.  Have a great afternoon.  Chat with you later.

Hello again.  Is everyone enjoying the evening? 

I have one more Easter card for you.  I still have a couple more to finish but I don't know when I will get them done.  Maybe next year, who knows.

This is another Stampin Up stamp.  I have had it for a number of years.  I think it makes the perfect Easter card.  I just love the bunnies.  The white shape is from Silhouette Online.  Then I just used textured folders on the color stripes on the back.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Craft Challenges - Anything Goes
   Simon Says Monday - Trio of Something
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Aud Sentiments - Easter + A Sentiment
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes

This is probably it for the night.  I will chat with you tomorrow.  Have a great evening.

Lettering Delights

Hello again.  Just a quick one before I finish up dinner. 

Lettering Delights has this cute little cup characters.  I saw them months ago.  One of them is an Elephant.  I just had to have the set.  I have had coffee cups sitting on the top of my desk since Thanksgiving.  Yesterday, I was looking for something to work on that wouldn't be complicated (I had a migraine).  I decided to make the elephants.  I won't use them until this fall but I will put them back with my football things. 

At some point I will make some of the others. 

Off to finish dinner.  Chat with you later tonight.  I have one more card from yesterday for you.
