Hello Spring ...

This cold snowy weather has been good for stamping.  This card will be entered into this weeks Mod Squad Challenge...spring forward.

Stamps:  Just Believe, Hello Spring, Sweet Summer (SU)
Paper:  Garden Green, White (SU)
DP:  Birght & Basic (Recollections)
Ink:  freshly cut grass, sunflower (Lawn Fawn); black (Versafine)
Accessories:  twine, pearls (Michaels); Copics; wink of stella glitter pen (Zig); Scan n Cut (Brother); sponge dauber (SU)

I inked the flower image with a sponge dauber and think it turned out well.  Tried something new and will use this technique again.  It goes much quicker than a marker.

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day!

My anchor ...

It has been a snowy day, so after shoveling this morning, I stayed inside and made some cards for a few challenges.  This card is for two challenges.  I'm entering it into the Pals Paper Arts for the layout and Simon Says Stamps for Anything Goes featuring Lawn Fawn products.

Stamps:  Float My Boat (Lawn Fawn); Itty Bitty Backgrounds (SU)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, White (SU)
DP:  Bold Basics (Recollections)
Ink:  Mermaid, Cranberry (Lawn Fawn); Crumb Cake (SU); Versamark
Accessories:  clear embossing powder; eyelet; twine; edge distresser; oval die (Spellbinders)

To emboss my sentiment, I inked the saying in Versamark first and then into the mermaid ink.  I was pleased with the way this card turned out.  Always need some masculine cards on hand.

Here are some pics of the snow at my house.  It is so pretty!

Hoppy Easter

Hoping to get this into the Mod Squad Challenge before it closes.  Seems I'm always cutting it close.  The good news, I'm also entering this into Tuesday Morning Sketches which just went up today. 


Stamps: Hoppy Easter (Verve)
Paper:  White, Baja Breeze (SU); Green (Recollections) 
DP:  Bright and Basics (Recollections)
Ink:  black (Memento and Versafine)

Went for something a little different by making a square card.  This one measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The bow tie and flower are 3D.  First time I've done this before and I do like the look.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day!

Benjamin Bunny

This card was supposed to be entered into the Tuesday Morning Sketch which closed at 7 p.m. tonight.  I got the card finished around 5 and went to show it to my hubby.  He was watching TV and I cuddled up next to him to tell him about the card.  To make a long story short, I fell asleep and missed the deadline.  Oh well, at least I got a nice head massage out of it and a cute card.

MOJO Birthday

Two post in one day ... hmm.  I was not going to add this card to my blog since the picture is awful.  The card itself is cute in real life.  The pic is bad because it was taken quickly on the kitchen counter.  My husband wanted to take it to work to show his co-worker the results of the Scan N Cut.  The friend's wife is into crafts also.  My dear hubby forgot to bring the card home Friday. So, here it is ...


Stamps:  Small Packages (Verve)
Paper:  Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, White (SU)
DP:  Just Add Cake  (SU)
Ink:  Versafine onyx black; Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi (SU)
Accessories:  Baja Breeze ribbon (SU); clear embossing powder; Copics; Scan N Cut (Brother)

This will be added to the MOJO Monday blog which also closes in a few hours. I stamped the Happy Birthday panel to add more interest to this already busy card...lol.  

Here is the inspiration sketch ...

Call me ... maybe

Popping in with a quick post for Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This challenge closes in a few hours so I'm cutting it close.  


Stamps:  Simply Labels Hello Friend (Avery Elle)
Paper:  White, Cherry Cobbler (SU)
DP:  Bold Basics (Recollections)
Accessories:  pearls, Cherry Cobbler bakers twine, flower punch (SU); Scan N Cut (Brother); corner rounder (WRMK)

This will probably be going postal to my daughter since it is an overload of pink ... her fav color.  The stamp set is new and I'm just loving all the fun sentiments in it.  Also lovin' my new Scan N Cut.  The label was cut out with that and the small border behind it.

Happy New Year

In between wrapping presents I sat down at my craft table and created my New Year's card.  I stopped by Tuesday Morning Sketches for my inspiration.

Stamps:  Adult Beverages (Simon Says); Warm Woolen Mittens (GKD)
Paper:  White, Black, Cherry Cobbler (SU)
DP:  Black & White (Paper Studio)
Ink:  silver (Stampabilities); Versafine
Accessories:  oval & scallop dies (Spellbinders); clear embossing powder (Stampendous); glitter (GKD); pearls (SU); Copic

Here is the sketch from Tuesday Morning ...


I stamped and embossed the glasses, added a touch of color with a Copic marker, put down some glue and glitter to make them festive.  Silver ink was added to the edges of the scalloped oval and sprinkled with clear embossing powder to match the glasses.  Happy New Year was also embossed to match the rest of the card. 

Thanks for stopping by and as always ... have a great day!

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to all!
