McMahon Five Designs 6/30/11 Telescoping Primrose


I have a little blog candy HERE

   For my McMahon Five Designs new release project for today, I used a digi called Primrose, and made a Telescoping card-  a Technique Junkies technique.



This fun technique is much easier than it looked initially.  I used Copic markers and a Starburst Gelly Roll pen for highlights.

Stampin Up workshop with Kim

 My friend Kim is a Stampin Up Demo, and I attended a workshop - here are a couple of the cards we made:

This interesting college uses Happy Birthday stamps from different sets. We cut the edge off of the striped ribbon and frayed the edge. We laid down sticky tape, and gathered the ribbon by laying it down on the tape. It is a very pretty card IRL.

 This card used the Rock and Roll technique for the butterflies- we stamped them two extra times and added butterflies that were cut out for dimension.  I love the woven ribbon on the edge.

We had a graduation party for our daughter Stephanie this past weekend- it was just beautiful out and we enjoyed visiting with family and friends. I decided to order food- so we had Chipotle and Jimmy Johns...and I made Mostocolli.  In the end the cost was the same as when I made it all myself.....here is a picture of the dessert table (the best part):
 Stephi did not want a cake- so we had cupcakes instead- Coconut, Cookies and Cream, Carrot Cake, White with Green Sprinkles (Go Spartans!) and White with Raspberry frosting and a Raspberry on top.....yum..... everything was gone but about a dozen of the chocolate grad hats and 3 cupcakes.

Ok off to pack- we are headed to Colorado this week!

Have a great day!

Mcmahon Five Designs New Release 6/23/11

BLOG CANDY ends tonight at 10PM CST

 I had a fun image this week for the McMahon Five Designs release- I was able to work with an image by Designer Solocosmo who sells her Digi images at McMahon Five Designs. It is that time of year where the beach scenes are appealing to our senses, isn't it!

Here is a closer view of the image:
 I made this card using Kraft cardstock and dotted on Close to Cocoa ink.  I then ripped pieces and made the sand- sponging the edges at the top. For the background, I used a Technique Junkies technique from April 2004 called Marbled Rainbow. I added a touch by running the piece through the Cuttlebug with a Fiscars impressions plate.  I highlighted that with Versamark Dazzle and a touch of white ink, and when that was dry I added a touch of Copic marker as well.  The sun was punched from an unidentified TJ sample- all I can tell you is that it is done on watercolor paper.....  I added sparkle to the dots on her swimming suit with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen- it just does not show up too well in the pictures. Sentiment is by Create with TLC.

  I also needed a Sympathy card tonight- and at McMahon Five there is a free digi this week- Sympathy sentiments:
  And, unlike me.....I made a CAS Sympathy card with the Modern Flowers Digi's released this week.  I used the pre-colored flowers and the digi paper and the FREE Sympathy sentiment.  I made three of these tonight in less than an hour.

Amber's Crafts and Stuff- Summer time (card #1)
Crafting for All Seasons -Summer
Fab n Funky-Summer Loving (swimming/snorkling)
