Santa Claus is coming...

Hi All,

So, I had a chance today to finish colouring Santa (it took me quite a long time) and put him onto a card. The Santa image and the chimney are both from Magnolia . I coloured them with my Copic markers...I used a lot of different colours, so I'm not even going to try to list them.

The colours of CS and papers I used are actually retired SU In Colours from 2 years ago! I mainly used Cranberry Crisp and True Thyme, and the DSP that was out then...I forget the name of it. And I used the Cranberry and Thyme Stitched ribbons (still trying to use them up!).

The Naughty or Nice sentiment is part rub-ons, part hand writing. The rub-ons are from Close To My Heart (thanks Sharon!), and I wrote the rest with my black SU marker.

The icicles are also covered in Crystal Effects for a raised, slippery feel.

I mounted Santa on foam circles, as well as raising up most of the other layers, too.

Lately, I have been decorating the inside of the card...I just feel like it adds a great deal more interest to it, and it's a nice finish.

I hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by!

Hi All,

So, I made a card recently that was VERY simple. I used Kraft CS from SU, DSP from DCWV (The Winter Mat Pack), my Long Rectangle Nestabilities, White Organdy Ribbon from SU (retired), and Holly Alphabet Stickers from Martha Stewart.

And Wham! The card is put together. I think it has a nice simplicity to it. Not too much goin' on...

The green DSP has some nice Xmas words on it and some glitter, but those are hard to see in the pictures.

Hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by!

Pink Poison Rocks!

Hi Again,

I absolutely love the stamps being put out by Pink Poison these days! I especially love the Anyas. Here is the new Elf Anya, and I used the cute Frosty Days DSP from SU. I love those colours because they are not traditional...and I LOVE Tangerine Tango!
Here are the Copic markers I used to colour her. (Click on the picture if you need to see a larger version.) She was stamped onto Whisper White CS with Versafine Black ink, and embossed with Clear EP. I find this is a good way to keep the image from bleeding when you colour (the embossing seals the ink in), but it is only useful for images that are very simple and have large features.

After I was finished colouring her, I cut her out, so that I could mount her onto my DSP. The DSP Classic Oval and the Bashful Blue Scalloped Oval were both cut out with my Nestabilities (using my Cuttlebug).

It's hard to see, but the right-hand edge of the card base was punched with a cute Martha Stewart punch (it also embosses - you might be able to tell). CS is Close to Cocoa.

Ribbon used was Tangerine Tango Striped Grosgrain from SU.
Hope you like her! Thanks for stopping by!
Feel free to leave a comment : )

Travelling Tilda

Hi All,

I decided to make a card where Tilda is travelling. Tilda is carrying a scroll here (not sure what I imagined it says), and I sponged her a ground and sky background.
The sentiment is from Verve, and the flower is from the SU set called Season of Joy. It is stamped with a glue ink pad, and covered in black sparkles (both from Martha Stewart). Then, I cut the flower out and adhered it with Mini Glue Dots.
Tilda's wings are covered in SU Chunky Glitter, and Tilda herself is coloured with Copic markers. The ribbon is Black Gingham from SU.
On the bottom, there are 3 clear Dew Drops, but they are hard to see.
On the inside, there is a pocket to put a gift card. CS colours used are Whisper White, Basic Black, and Pale Plum. The flower was stamped on Elegant Eggplant.
Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!

Close To My Heart Workshop Results

Hi All,

I just thought I would show you the cute cards we made at Sharon's house a couple of weeks ago. She is a Close To My Heart Consultant, so most products are from there.

As you can see, it was very seasonal. Fall/


Thanks Sharon, great job!!!

Frosty Magnolia

Hi All,

Wow, a busy week for me. I haven't had time to stamp or post anything. Anyway, I am still on my Magnolia + Copics kick, so here is another winter/holiday card with Tilda.
Sorry about the picture quality today. Probably had something to do with me taking them at night.
Well, I stamped Tilda onto Whisper White CS with my Palette Noir ink. I coloured her with my Copic markers. Isn't she cute? I cut her out, and set her aside (added her on later).
My card base is a 10 1/2" x 5 1/4" piece of Sage Shadow folded in half. From the front flap, I ripped the bottom edge off, and added a strip of Wintergreen DSP (retired SU), which was punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch. That was adhered to the back of the ripped flap, so that it lined up with the other flap of the card.
I then added a piece of Handsome Hunter to the front. For that, I used a ripped piece of paper as a mask, then sponged the bottom section with Whisper White Craft ink. That had to dry. But it kinda looks like a snowy hill!
The buttons at the top are from SU's Soft Subtles collection, tied with Linen thread, and adhered with mini glue dots.
For the letters, the "rosty" was stamped in Handsome Hunter ink, using the Whimsical Alphabet Lower (retired, but I will always hold onto that one!). The "F" is from a sticker pack by Close To My Heart. I covered the letter with Liquid Applique (white) and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and let it dry. Then, I heat set it, and it became puffy, like snow! I thought it made a cute addition.
Thanks for stopping by!

More Magnolias

Hi All,

Once again, I have been distracted by my Magnolias. There are some cute Tildas that have come out in the Holiday and Winter '08 Collections.

For the first card, I used one of my leftover Top Note die cuts, and stamped the icicle chimney in Palette Noir ink. I stamped Tilda on a separate scrap of white CS. I coloured the chimney with my Copic markers (E27 & E29, with the Blender "0"). I tried to colour all the bricks differently, so it wasn't too boring.
I added some blue (B00) to the icicles - that helps when you are colouring something that's white. It makes it look a little more crisp. Then, the icicles were covered in Crystal Effects, for a raised, glossy feel.

Whenever I am trying to choose colours for Tilda, I always pick my Designer Paper first. I knew I wanted to use the Bella Rose DSP, so I went with these colours for her (in Copic markers): YG03 (for the braid down her sweater), and R20 & R29 for her sweater and her leggings. Her skin is done with E000, E50 & E51, and her cheeks have YR00 on them. I also added some Shimmerz onto her leggings for a tiny bit of sparkle (you can't see it in the photo though).

I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the white "lacey" part at the bottom. The ribbon is one from the new pack in the Holiday mini catalogue from SU. It happened to match perfectly! The flowers are as follows: the top 3 are from Close To My Heart, and they are sponged with Pink Pirouette, Ridinghood Red, and Kiwi Kiss. The flower on the bottom is Ridinghood Red CS, punched out with the 5-Petal flower punch. They are put together with a Close To My Heart Bigger Brad in white.

The next card is also a holiday one. I chose the Frosty Day DSP (also from the Holiday mini) for my colour scheme. This is one of my all-time favourite Christmas Designer Paper packs - it might have something to do with the fact that I LOVE the colour Tangerine Tango. This time, I made Tilda a blonde.

For her outfit, the marker colours were: E27, E29, R02 & R08 for her sweater. For her leggings, I used B21 & B28.

For the ornament, I used E27, E29, B21, B28, R08, YG03 & Y11. I kind of regret making it look so looks kind of like a Yin-Yang sign. Oh well.

The ribbon is the Striped Tangerine Tango Grosgrain ribbon.
The flower is all SU this time. The bottom flower is Tangerine Tango CS punched with the 5-Petal Flower Punch. The next layer is a white snowflake from the Felt Flurries pack in the Holiday mini catalogue (so cute!), and the top flower is from the Flower Fusion 2 Accents & Elements pack from SU. They are put together with a rhinestone brad from the Pretties kit.
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

My Anyas

Hi All,

I have been playing with my stamps from Pink Poison. This first one is called Nurse Anya. I coloured all of my Anyas with my Copic Markers. For the nurse, I used Basic Gray, Basic Black, and Whisper White CS. The red paper is the Real Red Patterns DSP from the Level 1 Hostess paper pack from SU.

I added lots of dots with my Basic Black marker and white gel pen. The ribbon is Black Gingham.

The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations and punched out with the Large Oval punch.

The next one is Angel Anya. I used Pale Plum, Almost Amethyst, and Certainly Celery CS. Her cloud is made out of the ew Christmas glitter pack from Martha Stewart (it looks like snow). The background stamps are from Close To My Heart, stamped in Certainly Celery ink. I painted Shimmerz on her wings and her bow to add some sparkle (you can't really see it in this pic).

The purple velvet ribbon is a miscellaneous pack I found at a local scrap store.

The last one is Princess Anya. I used the sentiment from the set called Friend to Friend and punched it out with the Word Window Punch. The DSP is called All Dressed Up. It is a pack I got on sale from Scrappin' Great Deals (see "Where I shop online" on the righthand toolbar for the link). It is VERY glam. It has sparkles all over it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Last 2 October projects

Hi All,

Here are the last 2 projects from my October Stamp Camp. I realized, as I was putting everything together, that I "borrowed" quite a few ideas this time. Not a very creative month for me. Oh well, the projects were popular anyway!

The first card was inpired by THIS CARD on Patty's blog. I loved her idea of stamping the grass from the Inspired By Nature set, and making it into cattails by punching out brown CS with the Horizontal Slot Punch...brilliant!

I also LOVE Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip together. Kiwi Kiss was thrown in for good measure.

I made the charm by stamping the Thank You stamp from the Curly Label set in Staz-On onto shrink plastic, punching it out with the Curly Label Punch, and heating it with my Heat Tool. It shrinks down to a cute bite-sized charm to match the project!

The Vanilla piece was cut out with the new Top Note die from Sizzix (sold by Stampin' Up!). And that Satin ribbon in Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla is to-die-for! The butterfly is from the Priceless set.

The last project is a cute little treat holder. This is called the Diaper Fold, and I got the idea from Dawn's post HERE. All you need is 1 square sheet of DSP (I used 12 x 12, but I think Dawn uses 8 x 8), and it takes NO adhesive (except if you would like to decorate the outside).

For mine,I used a sheet of Holiday Treasures DSP, with the Deer Friends hostess set, as well as Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, and 1 1/4" Circle punches.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pocket Silhouettes, Urban Garden

Hi All,

Here is another card I will be doing at my October Stamp Camp. I try to use punches wherever possible, because it's less work for me, in terms of prep.

I got this sketch from Chat's Blog, but I changed the stampe set and the colours. I used the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set, as well as the Urban Garden DSP.

The colours used are Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, and Baja Breeze. I also used the new Scallop Edge and Scallop Square punches. I added some decorative dots to the scalloped edge with my White Gel Pen.

Also, the ribbon is the new Baja Breeze Double Stitched ribbon (extra wide). I tried to tack the ends down with some mini glue dots, so they aren't moving around everywhere.

The 3 main panels are popped out on foam squares.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kristina Werner's Colour Challenge #27

Hi All,

I decided to participte in Kristin Werner's colour challenge. It was to use Reds and/or Pinks, and the rest is up to you!

I decided to use Purely Pomegranate for the base, and then a layer of white. The top panels are from the Berry Bliss DSP.

I used some self-adhesive chipboard letters, decorated with Classic Ink (using sponge daubers).

The heart charm is from the Always stamp set. It was stamped in Timber Brown Staz-On ink onto shrink plastic and cut out, and then heated with the heat gun (down to bite size). It was tied to the pink ribbon with linen thread.

I wish I had a better camera, but you gotta work with what you got, I guess.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kristina Werner's 27th Colour Challenge

Well, Kristina has posted her 27th colour challenge. The challenge is to use reds and/or pinks as the main colour, and the rest is up to you!

Try it out!

Snowman Card

Hi All,

Here is another card I CASE'd from DAWN. She has got some great ideas! I used the same colours, but I switched out one of the stamp sets. My card uses the A Tree For All Seasons set for the main snowman square (punched with the 1 3/8" Square Punch), and the Season of Joy set for the sentiment and the background.
My main image is usually stamped on a neutral colour, so when I saw Dawn's card using Bashful Blue as the main panel, I had to try it. The tree image is coloured with markers and White Gel Pen. The background is stamped in black and also highlighted with White Gel Pen.
Colours are: Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Sage Shadow, Purely Pomegranate (supposed to be Rose Red, but I ran out).

Thanks for stopping by!

Hallowe'en Bat CASE

Hi All,

Here is a sample of another card we'll be doing at my October Stamp Camp. I CASE'd it from Dawn's card HERE. I used the stamp set Batty For You, and I left out the sentiment, but I thought it was too cute to pass up!

I used Tangerine Tango for the base, but I should have used Pumpkin Pie, so I'll straighten that out before the class.

I inked the bat up with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker, to avoid stamping the phrase that comes around the outside.
The white circle was punched with my 1" Circle Punch, the Tangerine circle was done with my 1 1/4" Circle Punch, and the Basic Gray circle (on the inside) was done with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.
After I Punched the 1 3/8" circle out of Basic Gray, I used that hole to punch out the Scallop Circle (so that the middle is missing). It looks great as a border.
The DSP is from the Ghostly Greetings pack of papers (sooo cute!).
Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Shower Card, but no gender?

Hi All,

Well, I have a baby shower to attend on Sunday, and my friend does not know the gender, so what was a girl to do about a baby card?

Well, I decided to put a boy AND a girl on the front...and we will all wait for it to be decided.

I used more Magnolia stamps for this, as well as one of the Hostess Sets from Stampin' Up!. I used the retired Wintergreen DSP as the colour theme, and used my Copic markers to colour them in. I also used a Chipboard sticker (got it from Michael's), and coloured it with Classic ink and my sponge daubers.
My SU cardstock was Soft Sky (retired In Color), Basic Gray, and Whisper White.

Hope you like it...thanks for stopping by!

Inspired By Nature Sunset

Hi All,

Today, I am showing my first card for my October Stamp Camp. I can't seem to find where I got the idea, but modified it slightly. It uses the new Top Note die and the Inspired by Nature stamp set.

I first covered White CS in More Mustard ink, then punched out a 1 1/4" Circle, and adhered it. Then I sponged all around with Bravo Burgundy and a little bit of Chocolate Chip. It is stamped in Close to Cocoa ink..I love this stamp set!

I outlined some parts of a flower with a Close to Cocoa marker just for some extra emphasis. All in all, it's pretty simple.

The sentiment is from the Hostess set Best Yet, stamped in black.
Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!

Cute Pigtail Tilda

Hi All,

I'm still on my Magnolia kick. Here is another one...I forget what she's called. She's the cute one with the dress and the pigtails.

I used my Copic Markers to colour her in, and she is stamped in Palette Noir ink. I mounted her on my Oval Nestabilities, and the striped ribbon in Tangerine Tango. The white oval is sponged with More Mustard ink. The background panel is Haiku DSP, Old Olive CS, and a Whisper White base.

I also used my Photo Corner Punch with the Haiku DSP and my Three For You Punch Box for the little flowers at the bottom. The sentiment is a Rub-On from the Chit Chat pack.

Pretty simple card...I wanted Tilda to be the main focus, so there's not much else going on.

If you want to know where I buy my stuff, here are the links (I get everything online):

- Magnolia Stamps (Tildas and others)

- Copic Markers

Farmer Tilda

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it has been so long since my last post. I was on such a roll, and then everything got really busy. Anyway, I recently got inspired to bring out my Magnolias and my Copics, so here we go.

I absolutely LOVE the stamps from Magnolia. This little girl character is called Tilda, and I think this exact stamp might be Farmer Tilda (or something like that).

I stamped the bale of hay first (separate stamp, also from Magnolia), and coloured it it with my Copic Markers. I get mine from Oregon Art Sales. Then I stamped Tilda on a separate piece of white CS (SU), and coloured her in. I also added some white Liquid Applique to her wings to add a little puff. I then cut her out, and mounted her onto the hay with Dimensionals.

I used some miscellaneous DSP, and some flowers I ordered from Scrappin' Great Deals. The brad is from SU's Pretties Kit, and I tied some Linen Thread around the bottom layer. I also used my Scallop Edge Punch, and my 1/4" Circle Punch inside the scallops. The cardstock is from SU (Whisper White and Ruby Red). Oh yeah, and there's a tiny Rub-On in the corner by SU.
Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

CC184 & SC194

So, it's been a while since I participated in an SCS Challenge.I decided (as usual) to combine the Colour and Sketch challenges.

Colours are Ridinghood Red, Always Artichoke & Basic Gray. I used my Bella Rose DSP for the red parts. I inked up my stamp with Ruby Red (close), Always Artichoke, and So Saffron Stampin' Write Markers. I painted on some Golden Wheat Shimmerz to the yellow parts of the flowers, but you can't really see it from far away.

I used 3 Dew Drops from the Lily Pad colour bottle and stuck them to the top right colour with Mini Glue Dots.

For the top photo corner, I stamped the Bella Toile BG on white CS in Ridinghood Red ink and punched it out with the Photo Corner puch.

The sentiment is from the Hostess set called Best Yet, and some Ridinghood Red Taffeta ribbon is tied to the left side.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!

The other 5 Xmas Cards from Xmas in September

This post is actually a part 2 to a much earlier post. I had posted 1 out of the 6 cards I made for my Xmas in September stamp camp, and here are the other 5. A lot of times (if I haven't got the time to design complete originals), I will CASE cards, or parts of cards from fellow stampers. This was definitely one of those times : )

This card uses the Big On Christmas stamp set with Holiday Treasures DSP.

Whisper White and Old Olive CS, as well as Old Olive Grosgrain and Ridinghood Red Taffeta Ribbons across the centre.

The Designer Label Punch was used with the Level 1 Hostess Set call Best Yet.

The ornament was stamped a second time, coloured in, cut out, and mounted on Dimensionals.

The second card uses the same colour combo. I punched out squares of DSP with the 1 3/8" Square Punch and scalloped the bottom edge of the Ridinghood Res CS.

The Level 2 Hostess set called Deer Friends was used here with the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Also used the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and the Scallop Circle Punch.

The third card uses my favourite Christmas set of all time: Holiday Lineup. Colours are Pacific Pointe, Whisper White, and Basic Black.
The BG is called Sanded, stamped in Pacific Pointe ink on White CS.
The snowmen were stamped on the main panel in black, then stamped on a white scrap, coloured in, and punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.

That was mounted on a 1 3/8" Circle of Pacific Pointe. This technique is called Spotlighting. It's easy and very effective!

The sentiment is from the Curly Label bundle using the Curly Label Punch.
If you click on the picture (to view the larger version), you will be able to see that I used Crystal Effects to make icicles and sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds glitter on them.

The fourth card uses Real Red CS with the Real Red Patterns DSP from the Hostess Level 1 reward. There is a wheel on the right side (hard to see) - it is called Jolly. The main panel uses a snowflake from Snow Burst. That is stamped on Very Vanilla CS in Real Red ink, and punched out with the 1 3/8" Square Punch. I added some of the Tombo adhesive to some of the points, then added the red chunky glitter.

I wanted to frame everything with black, but i thought that would be too harsh, so I used Basic Gray instead.

The last card uses the set Holy Triptych. I think this set is so beautiful, but I always worry about religious cards at my camps. Only because you don't know which guests will be okay with which cards.
When I saw the original of this card, I just thought it was gorgeous. The base is Baja Breeze, and the main background panel is Pacific Pointe, stamped with Encore Gold ink using the (retired) French Script BG stamp.
I also used Brushed Gold CS, and some black to make it pop. The image is coloured with Watercolour Pencils and an Aqua Painter.
I showed everyone how to use the masking technique with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (although we have done that before). Everyone is usually so scared to use that contraption because they have no idea what it's supposed to do. Sometimes it's a necessity when "eye-balling it" just won't do.

My Sample for KWerner's Challenge #23

WOW, huge computer issues today. I will have to post details later.

*Added Sept. 20*

OK, so here are the details. The card base is a 10 1/2" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White CS folded in half. Then, there is a 5" x 5" piece of Chocolate Chip. I used a polka dot stamp from Close To My Heart on the left side with Versamark, and embossed with dark brown EP (retired SU).

On top is a piece of So Saffron, and then some Chocolate Chip DSP (retired) with some paper piercing (paper piercer and Mat Pack). I used some of the Old Olive Rub-Ons (retired) from the SAB 2008 catty.
The piece of Whisper White has "Birthday Celebrations" stamped using Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers.
There is a Pumpkin Pie Circle and a Bravo Burgundy Scalloped Circle (both Nestabilities), and the flowers from Upsy Daisy are stamped in Pumpkin Pie, and highlighted with the White Gel Pen.
There is also some 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon around the base layer.

I didn't end up liking this colour challenge as much as in past. It's probably because I used the colours badly. I should have toned it down a bit...but what can you do when it's late at night?

Thanks for stopping by!

KWerner's 23rd Colour Inspiration Challenge

Well, I thought Kristina was regularly posting her challenges on Wednesdays, but lo and behold, here it is on a Tuesday!

My Sample for Colour Inspiration Challenge 22

I was too late to participate in the actual competition part of it, but I decided to post anyway. I only had about 40 minutes after work today to try my hand at it, and it took me an hour and 40 minutes. *blush*
Here are the details:
The card base is a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Whisper White CS folded in half. The Bravo Burgundy piece is 4 1/4" x 3 1/2". The Regal Rose piece is 5 1/2" x 2", and on top of that is a 5 1/2" x 1" piece of Rose Red. On top of that is a 5 1/2" x 1/2" piece of Soft Sky Prints DSP (retired). Then I used some of my white Rub-Ons that SU had in their SAB catty in 2008. I LOVE rub-ons!
I stamped 2 of the onesies from By Ones & By Twos (retired?) on white, coloured a TINY bit with my Blender Pen and my Soft Sky ink, cut them out, and adhered them with Dimensionals. Next, I inked up my sentiment from the same set with my black Stampin' Write Marker and punched that out with my Word Window punch.
Oh well, I will try to be earlier next week! Thanks for stopping by!

KWerner's 22nd Colour Inspiration Challenge

Well, I am clearly late in posting this week's colour challenge from over at Kristina's blog. In order for them to be considered for the top ten, or the random ten, they have to be in by Thursday (today) night at 7pm, MT. I think we are 3 hours ahead of them, so that would be 10pm, EST here. However, I will get home from work around 9pm, so not too sure if 1 hour will be enough.

Give it a try! Colours are Bravo Burgundy, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Soft Sky, and Whisper White.

Time to bring out....the Christmas Cards???

Hi all,

So, I have pulled out this year's first Xmas camp card. This one uses some new colours, it is slightly unorthodox. I did use my new Sizzix Big Shot Scallop Circle die though! The regular circles were done with my Coluzzle. I used colours Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and Basic Gray. The stamp set is Season of Joy, which I wanted when it was back in the Holiday mini catalogue, but didn't have a chance to get. YAY!

I also love the new ribbons...all different sizes, textures, and colours. This one is the wide grosgrain double stitched ribbon in Baja Breeze. This one is really hard to tie...I've tried, believe me. So, I decided to just wrap it around one of the layers instead.

I used my 2-way Glue Pen and SU's Cosmo Glitter pack (the green one) for the glitter on the tree.

Keep watch, as I will be posting all of the samples for my upcoming stamp camp (Xmas in September)! Thanks for stopping by!
