I’m Feeling…

excited for Fall. It’s my favorite season of the year and I love that the trees are turning beautiful shades of yellow, orange, and red. It is quite delightful to make the drive to and from work right now.

I’m Wishing…

that my house would clean itself. Yeah, that isn’t happening. LOL.

I’m Loving…

caramel apples. I could eat them every day!

I’m Creating…

starting to work on some Christmas cards. Maybe I will mail some this year? Maybe…

I’m Reading…

mostly science fiction/fantasy as I work out. I need something to keep from counting the minutes while using the treadmill or elliptical machine.

I’m Watching…

I don’t have cable so I’m a bit behind on the latest and greatest TV shows. I do have Netflix and at the moment I’ve been indulging in CSI New York and Holmes Inspection.

Hello, crafty friends –
I’m excited to share a fun project with you today using the fabulous Blow Me Away stamp set.
WhirlyDragonFeature_Finished1_DanielleLounds
I thought it would be fun to do a special treatment with the sentiment on this card by using it to create a background for the dragon.
WhirlyDragonFeature_Step1_DanielleLounds
To start I created a frame using a couple of shape dies. To keep them from shifting while running through the die cut machine I tacked them in place with a few pieces of washi tape.
WhirlyDragonFeature_Step2_DanielleLounds
Next I created the backing for the frame, by stamping the “You mean the whirl to me” sentiment on kraft cardstock with black ink. I kept repeating until the piece of cardstock was completely covered.
WhirlyDragonFeature_Step3_DanielleLounds
Stamped the dragon in black ink and then broke out the Copic markers to color the image. Once done I cut out using scissors.
WhirlyDragonFeature_Step4_DanielleLounds
Assembly time! I started by adhering the sentiment background to a white card base.
WhirlyDragonFeature_Step5_DanielleLounds
I attached the frame to the card base using foam dimensional. Easy Peasy.
WhirlyDragonFeature_Step6_DanielleLounds
A bit of ribbon or fibers never hurts. I glued a bit of burlap ribbon across the frame for texture.
WhirlyDragonFeature_Step7_DanielleLounds
Use more foam dimensional to adhere the dragon in place. At this point I whipped out the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen to add some shimmer here and there.
I finished the card with a few gold sequins and a touch of Glossy Accents to the pinwheel and dragon’s horn.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial into how I make a card. – Danielle

Tracy says “This is hard to pick!! I love Pizza My Heart and Tweet Friend….but I’m going to go with Pizza My Heart. Maybe it’s my Italian heritage but I have a thing for pizza guys and this one reminds me of an old friend of my dads who owned a pizza place. He had this big mustache that twisted around. He was built just like this lil’ guy too. We used to spend many a night at his restaurant growing up. Not to mention the sentiments with this set, like all of SPD sets, are so cute and punny!”

Today, I thought it would be fun for ME to take a turn at our Monthly Sweet Talk feature.

Sweet-Talk-Graphic-Me

I’m Feeling…

Crowded!  For the last few months, my family of 6 along with our new puppy have been living in a small apartment while we await the construction on our new home to be completed.  Space is very tight and privacy is pretty much non-exsistant, but we’re troopers and are making the best of the situation.

I’m Wishing…

For cooler weather!!   Central Florida experienced 3 GLORIOUS days of Fall last week and now we are back to Summer.  😉   I’d like to get a chance to wear the other 30% of my wardrobe soon.

I’m Loving…

The morning time snuggles I have with my two little ones.  Weekdays, I’ll snuggle up with each of them a few minutes before they need to get up and get ready for school.  On Weekends, they return the favor and crawl into bed with their Daddy and I.  Hugs, giggles and tickles.  My favorite way to start a day!

I’m Creating…

My new Office/Creative Studio.  Well, technically I’m just gathering ideas at the moment since the house isn’t ready yet.  But I’m having a lot of fun designing and window shopping for some of the furnishings I will want in my new space.  I just a little bit excited about it.  🙂

I’m Reading…

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon…for the 2nd time!!  The book has also been adapted into a TV series on Starz.  It’s one of my most favorite books EVER and is the first in a series of 8 books.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of reading this series, I highly recommend it. I’ve read them all except for the recently released 8th book.  And after getting only a handful of pages into it, I realized that my memory is a little fuzzy on some of the finer details so Idecided to start from the beginning and read them all straight through.

I’m Watching…

I honestly don’t watch much TV at all and I NEVER watch the news…it’s too depressing.  But I will make TV time for, The Walking Dead, Outlander, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey and Mr. Selfridge.

Mary says: “My all time favourite SPD stamp set is Rice Rice Baby. Apart from it being so appropriate for my Oriental relations, the sentiments are all perfect for lots of different occasions too. I particularly like this card using it as it reflects my CAS style plus my love of embossing folders and simple embellishing.”
