Where Ive been

Posted by Lena Nunn at 10:32 AM 2 comments
Ahhh I'm back ! Last time I posted I told you I was working on some baby shower invites. Well I finally finished them. 45 of them!!! This bella stamp which is called Teddy Bella is the only stamp I have picked up in a week. Isnt she darling? I love the idea of popping her tummy out with a pop dot ( thanks pal) . The lady who wanted these cards wanted Jungle theme but only Giraffes and Elephants and her baby shower colors are going to be lime green , teal and brown so this was a task! I made the Elly/giraffe paper myself using my scrapbooking program and a digi kit I bought . The bottom paper was also printed from the same digi kit. This is the first time Ive made hybrid card in a sense and ill be doing it a lot. I love that you can create your own paper using the digi elements and the colors people want. Its awesome!!! Now moving on to other stamps that have been neglected lately.

Recipe :
Paper~ Recollections, Digi created jungle paper
Ink~ Memento
Stamp ~ Teddy bella
Others~ Prisma Color pencils, oms, stumps, ribbon, pop dots

Long time no post....

Posted by Lena Nunn at 12:05 PM 0 comments
Sorry its been awhile since Ive posted. Ive just been having one of those weeks where I just don't feel like myself. Most of those who know me are probably going huh? You see usually I'm a happy girl. Always in a good mood and positive and this week I'm just....not. I don't know why. Ever have one of those? Maybe posting on this will cheer me up ? Perhaps.
I got asked to do 45 baby shower invites with Elephants, giraffs, this bella with teal , brown and lime green as main colors. As you can see I'm straying from colors a bit. Youi just cant do all those request with three colors. I love this Bella ( I should hope so it was 11.00 to ship her to me!!) I think she will get tons of use. I colored these ladies in with Prisma Color pencils and oms. I then popped her prego belly on a pop dot . So stinkin cute!!! I hope she likes them !

Long neck card

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:17 AM 6 comments
Jammie and I were making cards last night together via blackberry ( we stamp and chat on blackberry, snap pics and send each other) and decided to do the 365 cards Sunday Sketch, the Drunken Stampers Challenge which was to you Orange on a card and she threw in a challenge of I had to use some chalk. I had made some digital paper for some baby shower invites im doing so I decided to use some of those scraps on this card. I also had this girraff laying there so I decided to use it . I did the blue background using my chalks but then it looked like something was missing so I erased and E in the card so I could send it to my friend Emily who loves giraffes. I know the E is kind of sloppy but my eraser was square. Hope she likes it anyways.

13 Layers is too much work !!

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:01 AM 1 comments
Sometimes I am the biggest dork ( hey stop nodding yes!) . hahah I made this card for the 365 challenge which was 13 of something. I have 13 layers on this card. I was so happy when it was done I hurried and gave it to the girl I made it for without taking a picture . ggrrr. Thats where the dork part comes in. She did take a picture in black and white and post it on facebook before she left to get hitched so I snagged that one. Its just not the same in black and white :(

A birthday card for myself?

A card for myself? The challenge over at 365 cards was to make a birthday card that was fitting for yourself. This was harder than I though. Do I put fishing on it? Stamps? Western? As you can see I went with western because 1) I love this image and 2) I could keep it black and white to fit with the card. I adore this card layout which I found on The Deconstructed Sketch . This is the first time ive played along over there and I will for sure go back because I always need sketch INKspiration.

I think this is my last card for 365 cards tonight ( I know your tired of me taking up the blog roll). The challenge was use orange, green and blue! These colors say little boy to me. I was so happy I got to use my pun fun set because its been forever since I have. My friend Emily comes over to make cards often and I always ask " what should I make" and she always replys " make an easel card so today I did. She would be so proud!

365 cards is trying to kill me today!! I was looking back at some challenges I missed and there is one to use at least 20 buttons on card and 6 have to be stacked!! Luckily my friend Emily " cut it out" Wilson gave me a big jar of buttons a couple Christmas ago and could rummage through there. I used a whole jar of .99 cent buttons and some of Emily's . This card will probably cost an arm and leg to send because its so heavy!! But I enjoyed the challenge !

Bulletin board card

A bulletin board card? That was the challenge over at 365 cards !!! This was a challenge for me because all I have on my board is boring work stuff so I wanted this one to be cute! My step son just graduated so I'm in graduation mode and went with that. Although I wouldn't send him this card because its kind of girly I did make this card where you could personalize it !! The "tacks" are brads that I just pushed in . I looovveee this !!

I made this card for the 365 cards challenge which was to make a card in your favorite ice cream flavor colors. Mine is mint chip so of course this card had to be brown and light greenish color. I love this simple sympathy card and the colors together. Yummy just like the ice cream!
