The Outlawz Crash your Stash Challenge: Corner Punches

What a snapshot is to your life, your life is to eternity, so wouldn't it be nice if eternity captured you smiling? ~Robert Brault, rbrault.blogspot.com

Good morning!
We have a new Crash your Stash Challenge starting at The Outlawz Challenges which will run through August 14, 2021

Our generous Sponsor this month is Twinkle Lane Designs with a prize of an 8£ gift card to store.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/TwinkleLaneDesigns
https://www.facebook.com/twinklelanedesigns/
https://twitter.com/twinkle_lane
https://twinklelanedesigns.blog/

Our cue this month is Corner punches

We all have those small corner punches that we bought back in the day to add a little dressing to a layer or hold an image. Well now is the time to pull one out and rediscover how amazing they can be!

The punch I am using is an old EK success punch. I don’t even know if you can purchase this one anymore that’s how long I’ve had it. And it is probably one of my favorite corners as it always takes layers up another level without overpowering the layout or image used.


Supplies:

Image printed on Stampin Up! whisper white card stock
Card stock from The Paper Studio (Base) and Stampin Up!
Diamond glaze from Judikins
Embossing folders from Momenta & Stampin Up!
Pro Markers
Rhinestones from Local Dollar Store

Sketch used for inspiration: Poetic Artistry/Mojo Monday week 3



Now come on over to The Outlawz Challenges to play along with us or one of the other challenges that are always in process!

Happy Happy Anniversary ...

What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life — to strengthen each other in all labour, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting? ~George Eliot (1819–1880), Adam Bede, 1859

Hi All,
Today I’m sharing an Anniversary card that I made for my daughter and son-in-law.

I really like how this card looks in real life. Since I used a beautiful shimmery type cardstock, I had a lot of challenges trying to photograph. I just did the best I could.



This card was inspired by a card I found on HERE on hmadeboutique.com

This is another card that I do not have a supply list for because it appears I threw it away along with several others during a cleaning frenzy. I’ve tried to remember what I can but I’m sure I’ll miss something.

Supplies
  • Cardstock from Stampin Up!
  • Die from Stampin Up!
  • India Ink from Memories
  • Sentiment ftom Unity Stamps
  • Shimmer paper from The Paper Temptress
  • Vellum scrap

Thanks for stopping by!

3-D Graduation

Don't live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable. ~Wendy Wasserstein, unverified

Hi All,
Using an Easy shadow box tutorial from Jennifer McGuire Ink found HERE, I made graduation card for my niece. She recently graduated NAU as a dental hygienist. We are so proud of her and I know she will do amazing things with her life!

This card was so easy to make dut it sure looks like it took some time to put together!



I’d give a supply but I can find it right now but will update post when I do.

Thanks for stopping by!

80th Birthday for the Mother in law

God gives you a life and says, Okay, what are you going to do with it? ~Alice Cooper, interview with Cal Fussman, 2008 August 2nd, for Esquire's January 2009 eighth annual Meaning of Life issue

Hi All,
Using a tutorial I found on Beccy’s place HERE, I made an exploding box card for my Mother-in-Laws 80th birthday celebration.

This is the first time I’ve attempted one of these and while not horribly complicated there is a lot of measuring and cutting to get the box base and flaps created.


I had all the kids, grandkids and significant others write out personal messages that I could put onto all the flaps. I had a couple left empty so I found a nice quote about turning 80 years old and the last one I added a picture of her when she got the news that my daughter (the eldest grandchild) had eloped. So much fun! And of course, she cried and cried and cried because she loved it!

Now, I can’t find the paper I wrote all the supplies I used so I have tried to remember what I could

Supplies
  • Cardstock from Stampin Up! and Bazzill
  • Conch on the big bow was a gift
  • Design Paper from Anna Griffen
  • Dies from fawn lawn
  • Pearl Clusters from my stash
  • Punches by Martha Steward
  • Roses from Prima

The Outlawz Crash your Stash Challenge: Twine

It's not about finding fun things to do. It's about finding someone in whose company, it's all fun. ~Robert Brault, rbrault.blogspot.com, 2018


Good morning!
We have a new Crash your Stash Challenge starting at The Outlawz Challenges and our Sponsor this month is Sheri West Designs with a prize of 2 images. This challenge will run through June 14th.

Our cue this month is Twine

I love the look of it on cards but it simply is not my first go to when I want something different for a card front. Needless to say I have a drawer full of twine that I need to make a concerted effort to use more!

For my card, the design paper I used is actually quite bright and I felt it overpowered my images. So using the same die set, only a smaller size, I cut a piece of vellum to overlay and tone it down just a bit.

I then threaded some alphabet beads onto my twine and wrapped around the cardstock a couple times before taping it down. This created a simple banner over the images. 


Supplies:
  • Images printed on Stampin Up! whisper white card stock
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio
  • Design Paper unknown
  • Die from Spellbinders
  • Pro Markers
  • Punch from Stampin Up!
  • Ranger Archival Ink
  • Sentiment from Unity Stamp Co.

Now come on over to The Outlawz Challenges to play along with us or one of the other challenges that are always in process!

Daisies ... sweet simplicity

Kind hearts are the gardens, Kind thoughts are the roots, Kind words are the flowers, Kind deeds are the fruits, Take care of your garden And keep out the weeds, Fill it with sunshine, Kind words, and Kind deeds. -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Today a new Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge has started at The Outlawz Challenges and will run through May 1, 2021.

For the month of April our sponsor is: Pattie's Creations with a prize of 2 digital images

The current challenge was selected by me.

Daisy Time
By Marjorie Pickthall

See, the grass is full of stars,
Fallen in their brightness;
Hearts they have of shining gold,
Rays of shining whiteness.
Buttercups have honeyed hearts,
Bees they love the clover,
But I love the daisies' dance
All the meadow over.
Blow, O blow, you happy winds,
Singing summer's praises,
Up the field and down the field
A-dancing with the daisies.

I made a slim line card with Patties “Gerber Daisy in a vase” image.


 
I felt it looked a little to bland but I only have a couple embossing folders that would have been big enough to accommodate the card base easily and none were good choices for this card.

After rifling around in my stencils I found a small daisy one that I think was just the right choice. Love how it turned out! It added some interest without pulling away from the focal image.

I added just a bit of gold stickles to the the flower center.


Supplies used
  • Image “Gerber Daisy in a vase” printed on Stampin Up! Whisper White cardstock
  • Card candy from my stash
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio (Base) and Stampin Up!
  • Daisy Stencil unknown
  • Dies unknown
  • Distress Markers
  • Distress Stickles
  • Ink from Stampin Up!

Spring is in the air ...

Spring in its fullness had returned. Its deep breath was blowing damp and warm, the flowers quivered within the seeds, and the round earth began to ripen like a fruit. ~Jean Giono (1895–1970), Regain, 1930, translated from the French by Henri Fluchè and Geoffrey Myers, Harvest, 1939

Today a new Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge has started at The Outlawz Challenges and will run through April 17th

For the month of April our sponsor is: Pattie's Creations with a prize of 2 digital images

The current rhyme was selected by Barry and reminds us if what Spring has in store for us once she is settled on the land. Where I live, this means cactus blooms but it's nice to think about the Spring spoke of in poems is really like.

Spring's Vivid Carnival by Elizabeth Squires

Spring's vivid carnival shall soon prevail
She'll be frocked up in the brightest attire
her floral shades so striking of detail
Gardens being clad by stunning avail
flowers displaying such a colorful shire
spring's vivid carnival shall soon prevail
Every aspect of the rainbow there to sail
glorious blooms that we can admire
her floral shades so striking of detail
The wow factor e'er innate in her trail
a seasonal dressing of which we'll not tire
spring's vivid carnival shall soon prevail
Great visuals she'll pleasingly nail
on paintings in a sensational palettes fire
her floral shades so striking of detail
Seeing what the fashion will entail
we'll be gobsmacked with is garb's quire
spring's vivid carnival shall soon prevail
her floral shades so striking of detail.

Phoenix Paper Crafters Paper Pack Challenge: You Arff the Best!

I had to have company — I was made for it, I think — so I made friends with the animals. They are just charming, and they have the kindest disposition and the politest ways; they never look sour, they never let you feel that you are intruding, they smile at you and wag their tail, if they've got one, and they are always ready for a romp or an excursion or anything you want to propose. ~Mark Twain

Sunday Song & Rhyme: Give me Wings

Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them. - Neil Gaiman

Today a new Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge has started at The Outlawz Challenges and will run through April 3rd

Our sponsor this month is Lizzy Love of Oddball Art
$10.00 Virtual gift certificate

The current challenge was selected by Margaret

The Butterfly Song (If I Were a Butterfly) Psalty & Ernie Rettino

If I were a butterfly
I'd thank you, Lord, for giving me wings
And if I were a robin in a tree
I'd thank you, Lord, that I could sing
And if I were a fish in the sea
I'd wiggle my tail, and I'd giggle with glee
But I'd just thank you Father for making me me
'Cause you gave me a heart
And you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus
And you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me me
If I were an elephant
I'd thank you, Lord, by raising my trunk
And if I were a kangaroo
I'd just hop right up to you
And if I were an octopus
I'd thank you, Lord, for my good looks
But I'd just thank you Father for making me me

I was inspired by everything here and since I love to read, I chose an image with books since that is a way to find out more about anyone or anything mentioned in this poem!


Supplies used
  • Image printed on Stampin Up! Whisper White cardstock
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio (base) and Stampin Up!

This is Annie, our sweet pup we adopted in August of 2019. The full size photo of her is the one that sealed my husbands fate when I asked about taking her in as a companion for my pup.

  • Black Manga Pen
  • Cardstock from Stampin Up! & The Paper Studio

Phoenix Paper Crafters Paper Pack Challenge: For the Dogs

Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear. ~Dave Barry

Phoenix Paper Crafters is running another fun challenge this month and I thought I would take a shot at this one too as it is simply picking a paper pad and making cards/projects with that specific pad of paper.

My goal is to make at least 2 cards a day but I only got one card done today and well a scrapbook page too

Scrapbook Page

This is an 8 x 8 page that I will actually layer onto a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock. However, I found I have no white or red 12 x 12 cardstock so it will be a trip to the craft store this week.

Also, I haven’t added the picture of my doggo yet and written out the info on the upper right-hand corner because I’m still deciding what picture I want to print and put in there!

They never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation. ~Jerome K. Jerome
