a few gifts I made for my DD

 Merry Christmas I'm taking a little rest so I can share a couple things I made for my daughter for Christmas. When my sister-n-law and I went shopping for things she could get DD for a present this year one of the things she had thought of previously was the easy bake oven,so I told her I thought it would be a great choice this year. So knowing that she was getting that I thought about the one sad thing about easy bake ovens....the come with two sets of mixes and the refills besides being expensive are hard to find this time of the year we found. This was my solution to that little problem!
Easy bake sized cake mixes...about 64 of them! 
And then surfing the net I found a lot of recipes, there were two sets over at and so I added some in...she had great printable so but my stupid printer decided to not print black. Otherwise 
I also started collecting small tools of the trade for her like this
I altered the oven mitts and have to take up the ends a bit ,but that' okay. Oh and I made a CEOs hat
Since I am on a vinyl kick I fancied up the box a bit...
Just a fun little gift I made for DD. 
And now after a few hours of experimenting and cooking up a storm with DD, getting my bird and stuffing in, I am looking forward to relaxing for 5, have a Merry Christmas all!

A Light Up, Water Shaker card!

I don't know about you but I am crazy for an interactive project of any kind. I mean shaker cards are so FABULOUS and then when I saw the water shaker card...I was OVER the moon! So much fun!! Then I saw my first Chibitronic card oh how much fun are they??? Well, sometimes less is more right...sure but sometimes....MORE IS MORE!! So I figured I would have to combine the two and make a Light up, Water Shaker card!! and here it is!

 Oh but what fun is that I ask you? How about a better look?? Yeah that would be better! so here she is- the Light up Water Shaker card in action!

some Wild cards!

I am playing along with the online card class "wild Card" 
If you are like me and love interactive cards then this class is the class for you! Lawn Fawn's Kelly Marie Alverez is the teacher for this class along with many of her talented friends. This is my "shaped" card from Debby's lesson.
Then next up is a card inspired by Jennifer McGuire 's lesson. This is my gatefold card

This idea for the "pop-up portion of the class came to me in a dream...I rarely dream, or I guess I should say I rarely remember dreaming but this one woke me up at 2 am! 
It turns the stitched hillside pop-up into a stitched cloud pop-up! 
Thanks for popping in for a peek!

because of the texture of the hedgehog.(such a sweetie!)
So Here they are
And then....

I just love the Lawn Fawn slide on over dies!

Thanks for looking!

creative Chemistry 103- day 4

So I have another days worth of technique tags for you from Tim's Creative Chemistry class( still have one to do and hope to get that in by the deadline for the gallery closing. 
 So first up is the Distress Crayon smudge technique
And then I may have gotten a little carried away with the Distress Crayon Gesso Fresco technique
This one is only partially done as I had plans for it on using it on one of my day 2 tags. Then we have this
And this
And this one I wanted to try out using Watercolor paper
Just loved the look of this technique.

Okay this Distress Crayon Textured resist technique was so fun!
Is that cool or what!
This technique is called the Distress Crayon Watercolor resist technique, 

I did this as a card but will also do up a tag as I do keep my tecnique tags from class for reference.
Okay and next was this Distress Crayon Blended Background technique, I still need to add something to this one and add it to a tag...when I do I will share but here's the technique.
Alright I do have the one tag left from this day to share but my day 5 of class will just have to wait as I tried to buy Yupo for myself and a Friend but couldn't find it, but you can bet I WILL hunt it down because I loved that day of class!
 In the meantime... I wish you much I inkyness.








some leftovers

I had done the distress marker spritzed Watercolor technique from day 2 but it really needed something so this is the first water version
Thought I would do a foil edge and did the sentiment as well.
Then we have the second version
So this one I added onto a tag from the day 4 techniques!
Okay so now I feel better for catching that day up. Hope you had an inky day

Day 3 technique tags from Creative Chemistry 103

I have some more tags from Tim Holtz's newest class over at Online card Classes - Creative Chemistry 103 First up is a tag Tag from Tim's Distress Layered Collage technique
And then next up a little bit of play with texture paste coloring....I ended up LOVING this technique!
So much fun!
Next we worked with the texture paste embossing paste
And then we did a Texture paste resist technique
There was one more super fabulous technique that day but I didn't have any Distress grit paste, it is on the way to me as I write this and I will post that tag when I get the paste and do up the tag.
Seriously.....if you didn't take this class...I can't recommend it enough! Tim is just such a naturally gifted teacher!
Okay...the next post is going to be so much fun! 
As far as the arm goes...I can whip whip, but I can' t nae nae LOL, but again...not going to stop my playtime, I still have one good arm! 
Off to get inky-ER





some day 2 technique tags from Creative Chemistry 103

Yep, my shoulder is still out of commission but muscling through the pain is so worth it ....just love the results!
I couldn't even stand to cover this if I had to! Luckily I don't have too!
Next technique from day 2 is this fun one!
What fun! And last but certainly not least by any stretch of the imagination is this tag
Another really fun tag to do. I especially loved using the spray stains with this...I didn't really have much luck, because of my lack of experience with sprays in the past so I'm really thrilled with the results!
I also did the last technique with the spritzer but have to figure out what to do on top of them, so that will show up in the near future.
Until then, thank you for popping in,and now don't just sit there! Go get inky!!!

Tim's Creative Chemistry 103

These aren't even fully completed yet becausejust getting these done this far took every bit of power I had LOL  See I injured my shoulder catching my little gal coming off the water slide....but I just HAD to play along with all the uber inspiring ideas over at Online Card classes Creative Chemistry 103 with Tim Holtz. 
Here are the techniques from Day 1 though
First DIY Ombré technique

Then Distress highlight stamping
Offset stamping- this was tough because I loved the before version but I jumped in and embraced the imperfection!
(Remember I plan to add doodads to most of these but doodad hunting was the most painful part, LOL)
Distress Washed Watercolor
Micro glaze resist
Man I could play with this one all day if I had two working arms hee heeee.
Okay so that is all of the techniques from the first day of class please be patient while I work up doing the others, and until then...go on and get inky, you know you wannnnnna

Waving Hello

When Lawnscaping put up the new Distress Maniacs # 132 challenge I HAD to jump in! You KNOW how I love my distress, and my Lawn Fawn so a challenge with both things? I'm in Baby! So here is what I did up...I had this in my mind for the Mermaid for you so it was time to jump in and get inky

My card uses blended distress inks of tumbled glass, Broken China, peacock feathers and of COURSE Mermaid Lagoon. All of the stamps were stamped in distress inks or coloured in with distress markers. The stamps and dies used were the Mermaid for you, and Life is Good sets and the stitched circle dies.
I then added a little Wink of Stella, some Pretty Pink posh, clear droplets and sequins.
Thanks for popping in for a peek...I wish you all inky fingers!
