You're A Hoot- A CAS card with "Kissing" :-)



Hi Stampers!!

I have been having fun creating cards this past weekend and decided to create one more card using the CASology #157 “Wings” theme along with the Just Add Ink #272 Color Challenge, As You See It #98 Sketch Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers' WT538 Sequins Challenge (see details here and gallery here).

Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as the inspiration from their galleries!

To create this card:

Ink the owl image from the Lawn Fawn set, You’re A Hoot with Blackberry Classic Ink, the branch image with Crumb Cake Classic Ink, the leaves with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and stamp all of the images onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Lawn Fawn You’re A Hoot coordinating dies to cut out the images.

Ink the crosshatch stamp from You’ve Got This with Smoky Slate Classic Ink and stamp onto the Positively Chevron background stamp, “huff” to re-moisten the ink on the background stamp and stamp onto a Whisper White cardstock panel (this technique is called “Kissing”- love that technique name :-))

Stamp the sentiment with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, trim and mount onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock and trim once more to mount onto the Bermuda Bay card base.

Adhere a bit of looped Natural Linen thread and the leaves to the card front, mount the owl and branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add a few Bermuda Bay Sequins to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Stampin’ Up!- Positively Chevron (retired), You’ve Got This; Lawn Fawn-  You’re A Hoot


Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate

Sheltering Tree- Thinking of You :-)

Hi Again Stampers!!

This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created using the Splitcoaststampers’ SC551 Sketch Challenge (see gallery here) and Free For All F4A263 “Sheltering Friends” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) along with the CQC301 ColourQ Challenge, Just Us Girls #304 Autumn Challenge and Simon Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge. 

 If you have not done so, I hope you will have a chance to visit the above sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fantastic galleries!

This card was very simple to create- the stamp set does the work for you (I just love that! :-)):

Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Apricot Appeal, More Mustard and Calypso Coral Classic Ink to the foliage of the Sheltering Tree set, stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, ink the tree trunk using Night of Navy Classic Ink and stamp onto the panel, re-ink the foliage with the same colors and stamp again over the tree trunk.

Sponge the foliage colors onto the watercolor effect strip stamp and stamp twice to create the ground area, trim the panel and mount onto Night of Navy cardstock.

Use the Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool to score the diagonal lines onto the Whisper White background panel (per the sketch) and mount onto the Night of Navy card base.

Add the focal image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® along with the stamped sentiment layer to finish off the card.

Quick and easy for sure!!

DTGD15LuvLee My Soul Waits

Hi Again Stampers!!

Here is another card that I created as a sample maker for the DTGD15LuvLee Challenge  :-)

As I mentioned in my last post, Dare to Get Dirty 2015 has started at Splitcoaststampers- this is an annual event that allows the Splitcoaststampers’ Fan Club members to participate in several challenges hosted by the Dirty Dozen Girls (current and alumni, like me) in creating cards but also the possibility to receive prizes from the member companies. 

To participate in Dare To Get Dirty, you have to be a Splitcoaststampers’ Fan Club Member, and if you are not a Fan Club member, here is the link to learn more about joining.    This week long event (August 1st- August 7th) is a fun time of chatting in the challenge forums as well as being creative creating cards. 

While the Splitcoaststampers site is free, there are many benefits to becoming a Fan Club member and for the $25.00 a year membership fee (approx. 6.5 cents a day), you can help support this wonderful stamping resource!  I personally visit this site several times a day- so for me it seems to be a terrific bargain!!  And no, I do not receive a commission if you sign up- lol!!, I am just one of their unofficial “cheerleaders” since I am one of the Dirty Dozen Alumni and just love the site so much- between the galleries of wonderful inspiration, free tutorials, forums and challenges- this site has helped me immensely with my journey into the world of papercrafting!

One rule of participation in the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges is that the actual challenge details are secret to all except the Fan Club Members…I can share the card but not the details on the actual challenge (unfortunately, any details on this card will reveal the challenge details, so if you have any questions, please let me know in the comment area).

Sing to the Lord- Faith is Knowing that God Will :-)

Hi Stampers!

I hope all of you are having a great weekend so far!  My husband and I were able to go to Shenandoah National Park on Friday- it was a glorious day!  We love the vistas and viewing God's handiwork from the mountain- just gorgeous!!   

With that trip in mind, I wanted to create a card for this week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shine the Light ODBDSLC248 “Anything Goes” Challenge using two stamp sets I had not had a chance to ink up yet- Sing for the Lord and God Quotes. 

We love watching birds and the bird image in Sing for the Lord appears to be a finch so I decided to create a male American Goldfinch :-)  

Again, if you have not visited the ODBD challenge site yet, I hope you will find time to do so- fabulous Design Team samples and as well as their gallery!!

This card was a bit time consuming due to the “fussy cutting” but it is not too difficult to create:

Ink the images using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock (stamp a few extra blossoms).

Color the bird image using an AquaPainter™ with Daffodil Delight Classic Ink along with markers for the rest of the bird (as well as the blossoms)- Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Tip Top Taupe and Mossy Meadow.

Carefully cut out ("fussy-cut") the branches, blossoms and gold finch image and set aside.

Use the Big Shot™ with the ODBD Layered Lacey Square Die to cut out the sentiment and run the die back through the machine with the silicone mat and texture plate to emboss the die cut as well.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Vellum with the Perfect Polka Dot Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (I had this piece already pre-embossed in my stash) and adhere the embossed vellum to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Trim the panel, add the ODBD Beautiful Borders embossed and die cut Whisper White piece along with a strip of 5/8” Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Trim the panel and mount onto the Pretty In Pink card base.
Add the sentiment panel, bird and blossoms along with the pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: ODBD Sing to the Lord, God Quotes

Ink:  Stāz-On® Jet Black, Stampin’ Write Markers- Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Mossy Meadow, Tip Top Taupe

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink

Accessories: Big Shot™, ODBD Layered Lacey Square Dies, ODBD Beautiful Borders Dies, 5/8” Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Pearls


Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a fantastic day!

Amazing Grace- How Sweet the Sound :-)



Hi Stampers!!

I had a chance to stamp this afternoon and decided to create a card for the Our Daily BreadDesigns ODBDSLC247 "Floral Inspiration" Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers’ CAS307 “Use Your Words” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and Crafts4Eternity R#236 "Music".

Again, I hope you will take the time to visit the above sites- fabulous Design Team creations as well as gorgeous galleries and inspiration from all! 

I pulled out a few Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) stamps and decided to use Christmas Rose for a non-Christmas card :-)

To create this card- 

Stamp the Christmas Rose image five times using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink  (you do not need the entire image- just the main flower). 

Color the petals with Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo, spritz with water to soften the marker edges, fussy-cut the images and curl the petals upward.

Once the flower images are dry, color the center with the Hello Honey Stampin’ Write marker, add the white highlights with a Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen marker and set the flowers aside.

Ink the Amazing Grace Hymn stamp using Smoky Slate Classic Ink and stamp on an angle onto Whisper White cardstock.

Trim the background panel and mount onto a piece of Brushed Gold cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Always Artichoke card base.

Ink the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and use the Big Shot™ with the ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern Die to cut out the sentiment as well as a piece from Brushed Gold cardstock.

Cut the Brushed Gold die cut in half horizontally and mount behind the sentiment (allowing a bit to show as a frame).

Wrap a piece of Gold Thread into a large loop and adhere to the card front (I used a drop of hot glue).

Use the Martha Stewart Leaf Punch to punch out the leaves from Always Artichoke cardstock and adhere behind the flowers.

Mount the framed sentiment to the card front using dimensional foam tape and add the flowers around the sentiment.

Finish off the card with a few  Pearls in the corners and you are done!

FYI- This card was a bit difficult to photograph- the Frost White Shimmer Paint created quite a glare and made the flowers in the photo look different in the color as well as highlight the wrinkles in the paper from curling- oops!

Stamp Sets: Our Daily Bread Designs- How Sweet the Sound, Amazing Grace Hymn, Christmas Rose

Ink: Stāz-On Jet Black, Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Hello Honey; Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker, Frost White Shimmer Paint

Paper: Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Brushed Gold

Accessories: Big Shot™, ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern Die,  Martha Stewart Leaf Punch, Gold Metallic Thread, Pearls


Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- it is such an encouragement to me!  Have a wonderful day, my friends!

By The Seashore- Thinking of You



Hi Again Stampers! 

I had a chance to complete one more card Saturday evening and decided to play along with the Pals Paper Arts PPA261 Sketch Challenge as well as the Splitcoaststampers’ Mix-Ability MIX120 “Just Beachy” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and the F4A273 “Sand Between My Toes” Challenge (see details here and gallery here).

When I organized my stamping area (a while ago :-)), I found some previously pre-printed My Digital Studio (MDS) images that had already been colored and “fussy-cut” and decided to use for these images for the main design.   Of course, you could stamp the images if you do not have MDS...

Again, if you have not stopped by any of the challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- fantastic inspiration from all!!

To create this card:

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the By The Seashore images (re-sizing all a bit) and print out using Black Printer Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.

The sand has alot of shimmer and sparkle that is difficult to see in the photo :-)
Color the images using Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Markers.
Fussy-cut each image and use an AquaPainter™ to apply retired Frost White Shimmer Paint to each image.

Tear a piece of scrap paper to create the edge for the shoreline, mask a portion of Whisper White cardstock and using Sponge Daubers apply Sahara Sand Classic Ink for the sand area.

Remove the mask and replace over the sand (extending a bit for the “foam”) and sponge Pool Party, Marina Mist and Lost Lagoon Classic Ink for the ocean.

Mask the water area again and spritz Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (mixed with rubbing alcohol) over the sand area, lift the mask and re-mask the sand area to spray Frost White Shimmer Paint over the ocean area.

Ink the Gorgeous Grunge large splatter stamp using Sahara Sand and stamp over the sand area.

Add a few white highlights over the water with the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker as well as highlights on the shell images, etc.

Use a Faber-Castell® Black Pitt Pen S Marker to add the definition for the shore line.

Stamp the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and trim the panel, mount onto Tip Top Taupe cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Mount the seashell images using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  By The Seashore (MDS version), Wetlands

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stāz-On® Jet Black, Lost Lagoon, Marina Mist, Pool Party, Sahara Sand; Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand; Faber-Castell® Pitt Pen Markers- White and Black “S”, Shimmer Paint- Champagne Mist and Frost White

Paper: Whisper White, Tip Top Taupe

Accessories: AquaPainter™,  Sponge Daubers, scrap paper for masking


Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful and relaxing Sunday!

Choose Happiness - Feel Better Soon :-)




Hi Stampers!

This weekend I had a chance to play around in my craft room and created a fun Mixed Media card for the As You See It #97 Sketch Challenge using the Colour Me...!#81 "Colour Me Playful" Challenge along with the Friday Mash Up! FM218 "Let's Eat" Challenge (food and/or drink or use markers to color or both- I chose markers to color only :-)). 

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites yet, again, I would encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this Mixed Media card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Calypso Coral, trim again and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss, trim once more and mount onto the Pink Pirouette card base.

De-static a piece of Vellum and stamp the woodgrain banner image from Choose Happiness several times using Versamark™ ink.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and use the Heat Tool to heat set.   Once the powder has cooled carefully cut out the banners.

Mount the banners at varying lengths to the upper right hand portion of the card front.  

Ink the flower and stem images from Choose Happiness with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp two of the flower images as well as three of the stems onto Whisper White cardstock.

 Use Stampin’ Write Markers to color the images- Pink Pirouette and Calypso Coral for the flowers and Garden Green for the stems (scribbling the Garden Green onto a craft mat and using the AquaPainter™ for the first layer of color, then coloring direct with the marker).  

Spritz the colored images with water to help soften the edges of the marker and “fussy-cut” out the images.  

Use the AquaPainter™ to apply Frost White Shimmer Paint to the petals, and, if needed, the White Gel Pen to highlight the center. 

Stamp the bird, sentiment and border using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Fussy cut out the bird image and set aside.

Trim the border image and sentiment into strips and create the banner point using the Hexagon Punch.  Layer onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock, create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch, layer onto Calypso Coral cardstock and create the banner points once more with the Hexagon Punch.

Mount the banners to the card front per the sketch and add the stems.
Mount the flowers to the corner (using Stampin’ Dimensionals® for the second flower) and add the bird image with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Choose Happiness, Express Yourself (retired Hostess set)

Ink: Versamark™, Stāz-On® Jet Black, Blackberry Bliss; Stampin’ Write Markers- Calypso Coral, Garden Green, Pink Pirouette, White Gel Pen

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Hexagon Punch, Frost White Shimmer Paint


Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I will be sharing one more card shortly :-)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

Create shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker for the branches as well as a bit for the needles.

Stamp the pinecones using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and carefully fussy-cut the images.

Ink the sentiment with Perfect Plum Classic Ink and stamp onto the panel.

Bonjour- A Fun CAS Mixed Media Card :-)

Hi Stampers!

This Clean and Simple (CAS) Mixed Media card was created using the Splitcoaststampers’ CC540 Color Challenge (see details here and gallery here- dessert option "Birthday" but I skipped dessert this time :-)) along with the Way To Use It WT514  “Speaking Foreign” Challenge (see details here and gallery here), Free For All F4A281 “Think Big”  Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and SC518 Sketch Challenge  (see details here and gallery here).   

I purchased this owl stamp on sale a while ago and this is the first time that I have had a chance to play around with it....I love this bold image- it reminds me of a woodcut and the owl has such a bewildered and cute expression (I normally do not gravitate towards “cute” images but one of my friends absolutely loves all things “cutesy” and she is starting to wear off on me- lol!).

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites yet, again, I would encourage you to do so- great inspiration from all!

This card was fairly quick to create- de-static the paper with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the image using Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss White Embossing Powder, heat with the Heat Tool, color with Stampin’ Write Markers- Tempting Turquoise, Smoky Slate and Crushed Curry and wipe off the excess with a dampened paper towel.

I did modify the image a bit using a Spectrum Noir™ True Black alcohol marker to enlarge the pupil, added additional lines for the “iris” with a Faber-Castell Pitt Pen XS Marker and finished with the white highlights using Titanium White Acrylic Paint.

Trim the image and mount onto Tempting Turquoise cardstock, trim again and mount onto Smoky Slate cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock using Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink, trim the panel and mount onto Tempting Turquoise cardstock, trim again and mount onto Smoky Slate cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the Tempting Turquoise card base.

Add the owl image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.

 Stamp Sets:  Chère Amie  (My Friend),  Owl Stamp (Inkadinkado)

Ink: Versamark™, Tempting Turquoise; Stampin’ Write Markers- Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, Tempting Turquoise

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Tempting Turquoise

Accessories:  Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Rhinestones


Thanks again for taking the time to visit- I hope you have a fantastic week, my friends!
