Tee pee Time


I knew exactly what my entry would be for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge, "folded."  A tee pee card; where you take three 6" x 6" pieces of paper, folded diagonally, attach them as shown below using your choice of adhesive.  It's a delicate task because you want the edges aligned perfectly and very important to have a sturdy paper, this way when the card is set on it's tee pee edges the paper can hold it's own weight.   These types of cards are so dramatic and fun to give as gifts because of their uniqueness.

side ONE
The fun part is the design, you have four sides to the card to design, see:
Side TWO--I melted the sequins with my heat gun, love it!

Side THREE lots of layers and colors

and the fourth side is the inside, where I added the sentiment:
note, I used velcro dots to hold the card together.
This card can be folded flat and mailed, see:
and here are some of the scrumptious details!
This key has been in my stash forever,I love the little cardinal.  

this bird and birdcage are delighful, I added stickles to the star.
This chipboard birdcage I painted, distressed and added the pearls.  The "love tag" I added the alpha stickers and attached to the birdcage with an old necklace.
(I have a thing for birdcages and birds)
The gold, silver and bronze "beads" are from a christmas floral arrangement.  I thought they looked terrific tucked in between the flowers.   


This card will be perfect for someone at the hospital where they can prop it up on the window sill or beside table. Note the butterfly stamp tucked under the flowers.  I love stamps, have collected them since I was a little girl and love to find little places to put them in my work.  

Thanks for coming by for some Puddin N Pie.

Weekly Round UP June 3rd

Come join along at the 
WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE

This week I found inspiration all over the web for card designs.  It's just amazing the talent and diversity a person can find in the blog world.
Look at this gorgeous Butterfly found at
My Creative Chaos


I so dig this summertime colors in this birthday card.  I am totally going to make something with this color scheme! Can we say Pinned!  Follow all my Pinterest boards because they are way cool.
Paper. Markers, Ink, Oh MY!


This takes a lot of patience(something I don't have a lot of) and even-handedness to color in a stamped image. Amazing!

Let's take a joy ride


I thought the Tim Holtz antique truck was so appropriate for this card(going to a friend who is opening a car shop).  I'm thinking I might remove two of the fussy cut street lamps and leave only one one on the card, what do you think? Keep it or take them off?


I'm entering this card into the Color Throwdown Challenge Blog, working with these colors. The pink in the card photographs more orange than pink.  bummer.  


Here's what was going on behind the scenes
Sookie our 4 year old kitten
I added the brad on the corner of the truck to follow the guidelines for this challenge blog, Butterfly Challenge Blog.  Where I followed the tic-tac-toe board with butterflies, flowers and wet(heat) embossing. The car and the fussy cut lamp posts are heat embossed.  The colors on this brad match perfectly with the color challenge, I couldn't believe it when I found this in my brad stash!  I have way too much stash.

Breaking News, Giant Cat photo bombs Puddin N Pie

This just in
Giant cat photo bombs
It's a great picture of our kitten(4 years old) Sookie.
Why do they always want to be in the photos, unless you're trying to take a photo and they don't want anything to do with it.
note, this is her chair-see all the fur?

I love hot air balloons, they seem so magical! I would love to go to New Mexico's Hot Air Balloon festival and experience it first hand.  I'm adding this whimsical card to the challenges at these blogs:

The Friday Mashup-moveable parts or stripes.  (I should've made one of those balloons moveable. dangit)
The Color Throwdown-these colors below.  (my pink paper photographs more orange-y)

You're a Dear!


I love these colors!! They just pop right off the page and say--look at me!
The Friday Mashup asked us to create something with trees and/or embossed.  I decided to go with this adorable silhouette image from the Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge.  It turned out CUTE, if I do say so myself.
check out this brad....

Thanks for stopping by for some Puddin N Pie.

Oh Deer Me!!

I used the Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge to create this sweet birthday card.  These photos really don't do it justice, too bad--because you would be ASTOUNDED by my talent!



The colors for this card are inspired by the Colour Me Challenge Blog

In this shot you can see the brown, pink, blue. I added some green distress ink to the trees and glossy accents to the deer and squirrel silhouette to make them more visible. 
I just LOVE how this brad from my stash goes so well with the colors!  At first the Happy Birthday was stamped and heat embossed on the brown paper of this card--but it didn't turn out well at all. (read: disaster)
So, I added the vellum with the hand stamped sentiment to cover that up.  I think it works pretty well for something that caused me quite a bit of anguish at first.
