FREE DIGITAL STAMP ~ JANUARY BIRTHDAY

Hello and welcome to Free Sentiment Saturday! Today's sentiment is the first in a series of birthday sentiments. This one is a little late for January, but I will try to post the rest or them on the Saturday before that month begins (so February's one will be posted next week).

HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #186 "MAKE IT MASCULINE"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! Our very talented Teamie, Pauline, is hosting and has chosen the theme, "Make It Masculine". For my card I decided to ink up these adorable mousey babies and make a Father's Day card.

I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and odorless mineral spirits and die cut it with Spellbinders Majestic Elements - Opulent Ovals. Then I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Gathered Twigs and Chipped Sapphire) and layered it over SU! Print Party Designer Paper. The card stock is Recollections from Michaels, the buttons and ribbon were from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the eyelets were from a package of goodies I won in a challenge a few months ago.

BEACH CARD ~ ALCOHOL MARBLING TECHNIQUE

Hello and welcome! I hope you are all well. We've had the flu bug here and it has not been fun. That's why you haven't seen many cards so far this year. I didn't want to contaminate any supplies or cards. I'm back in action now and I decided to try the Alcohol Marker Marbling Technique from Splitcoast Stampers. You scribble colors on a plastic bag (I used a ziploc), spray the ink with rubbing alcohol, then place glossy cardstock face down in the ink to make a background.

FREE DIGITAL STAMP ~ HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

Hello and welcome to another Free Sentiment Saturday! This week's sentiment is based on a sweet song my mother used to sing to us as kids. I used it to make this Valentine's sentiment.


Here's the deal: My digital stamps are available in jpg and png format. If you would like to have them, please send me an email and I will send them out to you.

Send emails to: snoopyshomemadefunblog (at) gmail (dot) com.

As always, my digis are free of charge because FREE is definitely in my budget and I know it's in yours too ...lol. One request though, please do not share these with others, instead send them here and I will be happy to send them the digis as well.

By the way, there's no expiration date on my digis so if you see one from the past that you'd like to have, send me an email at the above address and tell me the name of the digi or the date the digi was posted and I'll get it out to you.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to come back next Saturday for another Freebie!

Hugs,
Snoopy :D

HOUSE MOUSE & FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #184 ~ CHRISTMAS AND/OR NEW YEAR

Hello and welcome! As I mentioned yesterday, I wasn't sure if I was allowed to enter this challenge since I'm a Guest Designer but since they are looking for a full-time Designer this time around, Christine said she didn't see any reason why I couldn't make a separate project and enter it. So, I am beyond thrilled at having the chance to enter this in the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge HMFMC184 (DT).

For this card I decided to make a Screen Divider Card using the SU! Word Window punch to get the detail at the bottom of the screen.

For this panel I hand cut the House Mouse image and each of those tiny pieces of confetti so I could layer it all on the background paper.

I used a tiny alphabet set I got in the dollar bin at Michaels to stamp out my sentiment and added more hand cut confetti and some SU! bling to add a little sparkle.

For the next two panels, I divided one image up (again, cutting out all the pieces and hand placing them on the background paper) and added a printed sentiment to go with the image.

Finally, I tied it all up with some baker's twine from RRR and added a few gold peel-offs to the bottom of the screens to give them a finished look. This was so much fun to do and I'm so glad I get to share it with all of you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Snoopy :D

HOUSE MOUSE & FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #184 ~ CHRISTMAS AND/OR NEW YEAR

Happy New Year! I think I've finally recovered everything from my hard drive crash, my ankle is on the mend from my fall 2 weeks ago and this never ending cold may just be winding down so it's definitely time to start making cards again. So let's start the year off with a House Mouse card.

(click on photo for larger view)
This is a Double Dutch Fold card. The top flap lifts up and then the two side bars open up to reveal your message.

(click on photo for larger view)
I've made my card 5 1/2" square so the card stock measures 9 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 5 1/2") and the band around the bottom measures 11" x 1 3/4" (scored at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4").

(click on photo for larger view)
Here it is fully open. This was so much fun to make. I wasn't sure if I was allowed to enter this challenge since I'm a Guest Designer but since they are looking for a full-time Designer this time around, Christine said she didn't see any reason why I couldn't make a separate project and enter it. Needless to say, I am thrilled at having the chance and am entering this in the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge HMFMC184 (DT).

Thanks so much for stopping by!
