Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

Birthday Boy Frog

Happy Saturday everyone! Once again I spent part of Friday night watching Craft Roulette #220 live (replay HERE). This time the Twins baseball game (we lost - darn it) didn't start until after the show so I had plenty of time to create along! Finished my card shortly after the LIVE but waited until today to take a decent photo:

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio A2 card;
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Poptone Black;
Tim Holtz chart paper (collection unk);
Paper Studio Vintage Christmas (striped)
Stamps - Hero Arts Basket of Flowers & 
Sending Happy Thoughts (both retired)
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop Set
Other - Copic Markers; foam tape; Darice googly eyes;
preprinted sentiment - brand ??; Park Lane star gem

For this show Mary Gunn FUNN had Christine Bertram as a guest. Christine is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and does online classes (Cards by Christine). The old wheel spun some fun for us this week:

Project: A Dude's Card - I made a card for a boy's birthday.
Colors: Dragons - I googled & found Chinese dragon colors; red, green, black, white, gold.
Element: Basket(s) - I used a basket stamp. Thanks again to Jean (Right as Rain) who sent me the set!
Random: Chart - I used a chunk of a maritime chart from a Tim Holtz paper pack - I had cut up a few sheets and brought them to the satellite studio. No clue what the collection is but I think it had a travel theme...

I stamped and fussy cut the basket, mushrooms, frog & crown. Colored with Copics. Freehand cut around the bottom & right of the maritime chart and glued it to the striped paper. Die cut it with a stitched rectangle. Added a black strip & glued the panel to an A2 card. Added the other elements with foam tape. Gave Mr. Frog some googly eyes & added a star to the chart's center - done!

That's it for today, friends! Thanks for visiting & I hope you enjoy your weekend!!

Great card for a boy, Linda! I always love seeing how you pull together all the elements from the challenge to create your cards. I don't think I could pull it off the way you do!
