Still in my jammies...

It's 3:00 in the afternoon, and I'm still in my jammies. I didn't have to go anywhere, and no one was coming around, so why not?! Spent the whole day in my craft room playing. Lots of birthdays within the next week or so, and I really needed to get those taken care of before any more time passed. Will just show you two of them today but I'm sure you'll see the others soon enough.

The first card up is for the current challenge at TIME OUT. It's been a while since I've played, and thought it was the perfect inspiration to jump back in. Amy Wanford has an inspiration card there that is just darn beautiful. Check this out:



*sigh*
Totally adore this card. My take is based on her snowflakes and all that beautiful white space


In real life it's delicate and lovely. The blue is more aqua-ish, but it's overcast and gray outside, which complicated my lighting... All the stamps are from My Cute Stamps. The inks are from ME, and there's a scrap of vellum under the snowflake panel. One dab of Stickles in the center of the snowflake and one sequin rather than the "o." Love the way this looks irl.

Next I've got a birthday card for sweet little Kaylin's 3rd birthday. I'll be popping this into Seize the Birthday. It's been some time since I've played there too. Dang! And it's such a fun place to play! Gotta do this more often.... Anyway, it's an 'Anything Goes with no toppings' challenge. I think this is perfect for a little girl's birthday:





All stamps are from PTI. I used a double sided paper for the tutu and the scalloped layer, it's from Doodlebug. VersaFine black, and Ocean blue inks. Some copics for coloring, an MFT pierced rectangle die, a ME scalloped die, and the #3 from Jillibean Soup. Fairly certain that Miss K. will like this. 

With that, I'll go straight to post. Happy dances everyone.

We are in the middle of a snowstorm so your first card perfectly fit's the mood here! (Although there are a lot more snowflakes whirling around than just one!) It's beautiful and CAS with the hint of stickles and the sequin!
And your ballerina card is simply adorable with the paper pieced skirt and Miss K. will definitely love it!

Your cards are so beautiful Bev, I especially adore that sweet little polka tutu!

Bobby said...

I love the raised circle on your snowflake card, Bev. It does look delicate and lovely. That little ballerina is darling and the 3 in her hand is perfect for your sweet granddaughter.

Hehe Bev... I am also still in my PJ's.... but the difference is, it is 7.30am here in the UAE!
You had a fab day in the craft room with 2 great cards to show!
Thanks for linking up that adorable birthday card at Seize the birthday!

Goodness, what sweet cards these are! Stamping in PJs sounds like a recipe for a good day in the craft room!

You Go Girl - or not since you are still in your jammies ;) -- Wonderful clean, fresh looking cards!

Colleen said...

Bev, love that little ballerina girl...and boy did that number pop out and hit me in the head! What a fabulous idea to have her hold the number in her hand!! Awesome! Love your snow card too!
Thanks for joining us at STB!

Deepti said...

These are so adorable :) Love the paper piecing on the little girl, happy colors too!

sandie said...

Sound like you are having a fun day and why not just be relaxed! So good to see you at Time Out and with such a elegant card. Love the soft colours and the single sequin x

OH Babs said...

Love the cards. But I have to say the idea of you still in your jams at 3, now that is my kind of girl. I fear when I really get old I may never dress unless I am going somewhere. There is nothing better than no bra. :)

Patti said...

Beautiful!! I love how your little ballerina is holding the number 3 : ) She is going to love this!!

I think your snow card is just lovely too. Funny how I never get sick of the white stuff!.

So glad you got to enjoy a day in your jammies.

(((Hugs)))

These are great, Bevie! That snowflake is pure as newly fallen snow! Breathtaking! And your paper-pieced ballerina could not be more adorable! So sweet to have her hold the number three!! I'm so happy you got to have a play day in your jammies!! Hugs, Darnell

Joyce said...

These are both so wonderful. That snowflake card is so serene and really suggests a cool snowy day. Your ballerina stole my heart, especially with that fab tutu.

Kim Heggins said...

How fun to spend the day in your jammies...so jealous! Yesterday we had a snow day at work because of the major rain storm and I wanted to do the same thing but I did not. Your cards are just so beautiful and adorable too. I love your sweet little ballerina, so precious. Miss you lots...take care!

OttawaMom said...

Fabulous collection of CAS cards! My fav has to be that sweet little ballerina with the fun sentiment. So happy you played along with us at Seize the Birthday!

Geri said...

The wee ballerina actually looks like Caylin! She is going to be over-the-moon excited when she sees this card - especially with the flowered skirt! Awesome idea to rest the #3 in her hand! You are so dang clever girlfriend!

Geri said...

Where did the rest of my post go? Sheeesh!

Stunning snowflake card! The velum looks so soft & pretty. Love the rhinestone "o".

Janet Zeppa said...

Awwww I love the sweet ballerina!!
Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday!!

cm said...

Your 'jammie crafting' has resulted in two absolutely delightful cards, my friend. The delicate snowflake in the first, amidst the lovely white space = swoon-inducing. The ballerina: LOVE it, as will Miss K! My Miss T has been talking ballet lessons since September; her first 'recital' is in March. She is so darn cute in her ballet outfit, with her hair tucked into a 'proper' ballet-bun. I 'need' to get some ballerina images for her...Smile-making post, Bev...BIG smile!

Karen King said...

Your snowflake card is delicate and beautiful!

Kim S said...

Jammie days are THE best!! I have a mixed family. My husband and oldest son get dressed, including shoes, right away every day. My youngest and I think there's nothing better than all day jammies!!

The snowflake is just lovely - so simple, pure and clean! And the ballerina is charming, especially with the way you included the "3" - it will be a big hit!

Marybeth said...

Sounds like my kind of day! Simply the best, but those days of going nowhere are too few at this time of year.
All three cards are simply amazing! Love the ballerina!

Anita in France said...

I'm planning a few days like this over the holidays, Bev ... you're an inspiration! LOVE your snowflake ... crisp, CAS and with the most delicious minute glitter centre ... and the sequin in the 'snow' is perfect ... LOVE that too! Such a cute card for sweet little Kaylin ... the ballerina holding the 'three' is completely adorable! Hugs, Anita :)

Anita in France said...

Oops, forgot to say how delighted I am that you played along with us at Time Out, sweet friend! Hugs, Anita :)

Kylie said...

LOVE jammies day and we should have more of them. lol

Firstly, oh how I wish I could create CAS cards like you do. The first is soooo elegant. And I LOVE how fun and cheerful the card is for Miss Kaylin! Pretty, pretty, pretty!
