Jude's 40th Birthday

Hello blogger friends! Just this past weekend was one of my good friends had his 40th Birthday. If you know my friend Jude, you will know that he is a little weird, so this card I am about to show you was PERFECT for him!

Here is a closer look at the Chicken....
The stamp I used was from Your Next Stamp (, and the copic colors I used were;
CHICKEN: C1, C0, R29, R27, R24, YR18, YR16 & YR14
EGGS: E43, E42, E41, E40
STRAW: YR26, YR24, YR23
I used an A2 card and covered it with Orange Bazzil cardstock, then layered on a Creative Memories Photo Mat. I backed the chicken with brown Bazzil cardstock.  Everything was liquid chalked with Catseye Chestnut Brown.  I also usedmy glaze pen to shine up the eyes.

And the inside (where the comedy is)....

The sentiment is also fromYour Next Stamp and I mimiced the colors on the inside as well.  Boy did we get some laughs from this card at the party :)

Hope you enjoyed this post and I hope to be back soon with some of the Christmas cards that I have made :) Have a great day, ttys :D

Baby Card For Lucas & Chase

Hello there, it's Friday!! Whoo hoo! Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all the Canadians!  The Weather this weekend should be summer-like, so get outside and enjoy before the snow falls!

Today I am going to post a Baby Card that I made for my cousin Richard when he had his baby boy Lucas and also a card I made for my friend Matt when he had his son Chase.  Both images are a Stampavie Baby stamp.

First is Lucas'
Skin: E01, E00 & E000
Pants: BG78, BG75 & BG72
Shirt: Y17, Y15, Y13 & Y11
Diaper: C01 & C0
Eyes and fingernails: used glaze pen to make them shiny
I drew a Onesie on a folded piece of white cardstock putting the seam at the top of the card.  I then traced the pattern on to the printed paper and cut it out with scissors (sorry I do not remember the name of the company for the pattern paper but I purchased it at "Scrapbook Queens" in Mississauga, ON.) 
Using the Square Nestabilities I trimmed the picture in teal and tan Bazzill cardstock and pop-dotted it on top of a strip of brown ribbon, then tied a bow in brown ribbon and glue dotted it on the corner of the baby photo.
I then added 3 brass brads to the bottom of the card to look like the snaps on the Onesie.

Now Chase's card:

Skin: E01, E00 & E000
Pants: E47, E44, E43 & E42
Shirt: B97, B95, B93 & B91
Diaper: C01 & C0
Eyes and fingernails: used glaze pen to make them shiny

I used an A2 card and backed it with a pattern paper from Creative Memories Baby Boy photo mats, used Creative Memories paper ribbon in brown and secured it with two blue safety pins on each end.  I added 3 buttons under the sentiment witch is an old stamp I have had for years. 
To make the baby pop I cut him out of Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 11 then framed him with Creative Memories paper from the same photo mat pack.

Here is a view of the inside of Chase's card and the envelope;
The sentiment inside the card is from Creative Memories velum Baby Boy pack, and the crib stamp on the envelope is from the $1.50 bin at Michaels.
Hope you enjoyed today's post (and I hope I covered everything). Enjoy your weekend and I will see you soon:)

Thanksgiving Card for Mom & Dad

I would like to start off by saying Thank You to all who commented on my first post welcoming me to blogland! It meant a lot to read your kind words and I look forward to forming great blog friendships with you all!

Now on to my first official "Pink Palace Creation".  With the fast approaching Thanksgiving Holiday in Canada this weekend I got into the spirit and made my Mom and Dad a card as they are so graciously cooking a feast for my hubbie and I.  The card I made is the first ever easel card that I have created and I have to say it was a success (well in my eyes at least).

I used the Kraftin Kimmie Stamp-Merry ( and coloured her with my copics:
Skin: E01, E00 & E00
Hair: E49, E25 & E35
Dress: E43, E42, E41 & E40
Turkey: E17, E15, E13 & a touch of Y26
Oven Mitts and accents on the dress: YR18 & YR15
The card is made from Recollection card stock from Michaels, the accent paper is from Creative Memories, the background square is cut from Basil using the Lacey Squares Nestabilities and the Square Nestabilities.

I printed the sentiment on the inside of the card from the computer and added a leaf button that I removed the button backing from to make the card stand up.  The sentiment on the front of the card is from a very old stamp I had and do not know where it is from.

I hope you enjoyed my first blog post as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you!
