Thinking of You- A New Technique for a Mixed Media, Technique and Masculine Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers!!

I decided to spend some time in my craft room today and created a card using the Splitcoaststampers Mix-Ability MIX 113 “It’s Hip to be Square” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) along with the As You See It AYSI080 "Try A NewTechnique" Challenge and the Friday Mashup FM202 "Sketch or Masculine" Challenge.

Not sure of the name of this technique- you stamp onto graph paper and color the squares...I just had to try it :-)  Normally you would use a large outline stamp, but I just received this stamp a while back  and had not inked it up yet...

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! 

To create this card:

Ink the Impressions Obsession image using Stāz-On Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of graph paper.

Using Stampin’ Write markers- Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Lost Lagoon and Bermuda Bay, color the squares in the sky. 

Using a Derwent® Watercolor Pencil- French Grey and Silver Grey, color the squares of the moon as well as the bodies of the geese.

Use an AquaPainter™ to apply diluted Frost White Shimmer Paint to the moon, rinse the brush and blend some of the marker background on the sky.

When dry, darken some of the branches and the feathers using a Faber-Castell Black Pitt Pen marker and add a few white highlights to the branches with a Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen Marker. 

Trim the image and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Mount a piece of Whisper White cardstock onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, adhere to the card front.

Mount the focal image to the Whisper White “frame” using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Stamp the sentiment with Stāz-On Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner points with the Hexagon Punch.  

Mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock (also creating the banner points with the Hexagon Punch) and adhere to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the retired Basic Black button (with a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock as “thread” in the center) to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Moon Lake (sentiment), Geese and Tree  (I/O)

Ink: Stāz-On Jet Black Ink, Stampin’ Write Markers- Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Lost Lagoon, Pool Party; Faber-Castell Black and White Pitt Pen markers

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay

Accessories: Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Hexagon Punch, AquaPainter™, Frost White Shimmer Paint, retired Basic Black button


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

TCC32 Pleasant Poppies- Just Because :-)




Hi Stampers!! 

It’s time for the new Card Concept #32 (Coral, Aqua, Green & White) Inspiration Photo Challenge- my Mixed Media card was inspired by the colors as well as the beautiful flowers.

I decided to combine our Card Concept challenge with the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It WT524 Tortoise or Hare Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and the Mix-Ability MIX112 First Day of Spring Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and Virginia's View Challenge #14 Layers and Dimension :-)  

I am normally a “tortoise” when it pertains to card making – especially my Mixed Media designs but that is what I love about stamping and creating….you are allowed to go at your own pace and it is so therapeutic:-)

The Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a number of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media. 

So pull your supplies together and come join in on the fun!! 

To create this card:

Apply a layer of Gesso to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and allow to dry (I prefer to use my Heat Tool to speed up the process).

On your craft mat, apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains- Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Broken China and lay your prepared piece of Whisper White cardstock over the stains, twist and lift.   

Repeat until you have the desired effect on your background, spritzing wi
th water and allowing to spread over the page and drying as needed between layers with the Heat Tool. 

Ink the retired background stamp, Ex Libré using Bermuda Bay Classic Inkand position the background panel over the image, “finger walk” the panel on parts of the stamp to allow only portions of the stamp to be revealed on the background, re-position the background layer and repeat (again, until the desired effect is achieved).

Once dried, apply Gesso® using the Balzar Designs® Well Rounded stencil- allow this to dry and add a few torn pieces of Graphic 45 Washi Tape. 

Stamp the Notable Notions script stamp with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink over the background and stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges and mount onto the Calypso Coral card base.   Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges.

Open My Digital Studio (MDS) and position the Pleasant Poppies background stamp (enlarge the flowers a bit) as well as the sentiment, Just Because from Notably Ornate (enlarging this a bit as well) and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the Pleasant Poppies using the Light and Medium Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin’ Blendabilities™.  Add a few shadows with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker and a few highlights with the Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen marker. 

Carefully “fussy-cut” the flowers and add to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Hand cut the sentiment away from the frame and use a Sponge Dauber with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age the paper a bit.   Mount to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Cut a strip of 1 ½” Burlap Ribbon, cut off the binding on both sides and remove a few strands of the Burlap.  Spread the remaining strands apart a bit and adhere the larger strip to the card front.

Weave a few strands of the burlap into the retired Designer Round Ribbon Slide and adhere to the card front to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Pleasant Poppies, Notably Ornate (both MDS Versions), Notable Notions, Gorgeous Grunge, Ex Libré background stamp

Ink: Bermuda Bay, Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Light and Medium Calypso Coral and Old Olive Collections,  Stampin’ Write Marker- Crumb Cake; Ranger® Tim Holtz® Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, Broken China Distress Stain, Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Printer Ink- Black, Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen marker

Paper: Whisper White, Calypso Coral

Accessories: Gesso®, Balzar Designs® Well Rounded Stencil, Graphic45 Washi Tape, Sponge Dauber, Distressing Tool, 1 ½” Burlap Ribbon, retired Designer Round Ribbon Slide


I have some good news to share- those of you who have been following my blog, know that my husband has been undergoing chemo treatments for a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (short name- Waldenstroms) and we found out yesterday that the bone marrow biopsy results show that the chemo has been effective and he will now be under a 2 year maintenance program- Praise the Lord!!  We are so thrilled to hear these results and wanted to thank all of you for your prayers, cards and support!  The Lord has blessed us so and we are so thankful!!

Thanks again for taking the time to visit, and again, I hope you will find the time to stop by The Card Concept to check out the rest of the Design Team projects as well as create your own to join in on the fun!!  Have a fabulous Easter Week and Resurrection Sunday!!

Butterfly Basics Birthday (with a Cat, of course :-))



Hi Stampers! 

Wow, this has been another very busy week, but I had a chance to design and create a card today for the PP238 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge (using Flowers, Die Cuts and Yellow) along with the FMS179 Sketch Challenge and the JUGS286 Inspiration Photo! :-)

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


To create this card:

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the Butterfly Basics floral (enlarging a bit), Honeycomb and Postage  images as well as the sentiment.  

Insert a punch image with a drop shadow (I used a square) and enlarge to fill the sentiment area, color fill with Whisper White and position the punch over the floral image.  Bring the punch to the “top” and position the sentiment over the punch, then bring the sentiment to the “top”.  

Print the arranged MDS images onto Whisper White cardstock.

Use the Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Old Olive (Light and Medium) Stampin’ Blendabilities™ to color the flowers and stems.  

Add shadows using a French Gray Derwent® Watercolor Pencil and add defining lines to the top and bottom of the sentiment using a Black Pitt Pen marker.  Use the White Pitt Pen marker to add a few highlights to the tall flower center.

Trim the panel, use the retired Crimper Tool to crimp the corners and round the corners using the 2 ½” Circle Punch.

Create the layered banner with Basic Grey, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock (punching the banner points on each with the Hexagon Punch) and adhering the banner behind the focal image panel.

Mount the focal image panel onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock (creating the rounded corners on the Basic Gray layer using the 2 ½” Circle Punch before adhering the focal image panel).

Mount a piece of Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Gray card base.

Add the focal image panel and mount the die cut cat from Basic Black cardstock.
Create a Basic Gray paper bow using the Bow Builder Punch with the Basic Black button in the center to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Butterfly Basics (MDS version)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Light and Medium Markers, Derwent® French Gray Watercolor Pencil, Pitt Pen Markers- Black and White

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray, retired Daffodil Delight DSP

SUO119 Trust God- A Fun Fold with A Color Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers!   

It’s time for the new SUO119 “Fun Folds” Challenge and I decided to use the Gate Fold technique for my “fun fold” and incorporated the JustUs Girls JUGS285 Color Challenge. 


I hope you will find the time to check the both challenge sites and create your own Stampin’ Up! “Fun Fold” project!!




To create this card:
Create the card base from Basic Black cardstock- I used the Splitcoaststampers Gate Fold Card tutorial located here for my base.
Layer the pieces of Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the front two panels and cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to fit the inside main panel.
Ink the flower and leaf image from Choose Happiness with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp repeatedly onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock as well as onto the Whisper White interior card panel (mask the flowers for the panel as you stamp).   
Ink the bird image with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Acetate, turn the Acetate over so that the wet ink is on the bottom and press onto the Whisper White cardstock (for a “mirror” image).  Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to darken the bird image.
Color the flowers using the Calypso Coral Light and
Showing the view when opened from the side :-)
Medium Blendabilities™ markers and use the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker to add shadows to the leaves.  I added additional Basic Black to the stamped areas to darken, but this step may not be needed (I think I need to re-ink my Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink pad- note to self :-))    Add a few highlights to the center with the White Gel Pen.
Carefully cut out (“fussy-cut”) three of the flowers and leaf stems along with the bird image.
Stamp the sentiment from Trust God and the border from Choose Happiness below the sentiment with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Chalk Talk Framelits™ to cut out the sentiment (cut another Chalk Talk Framelit™ the same size from Basic Black cardstock as well). 
Cut the Basic Black frame in half and adhere behind the sentiment.
Showing the view with the inside panel :-)
Mount the sentiment to the left “gate” panel, add the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals®, positioning the lower right hand flower to be used as the closure for the card.  Adhere the leaf stems behind the flowers and add the bird image to the lower left of the sentiment.
Stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and add a bit of “splatter” to the interior panel, mount the panel to the interior to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets:  Choose Happiness, Trust God, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink; Stampin’ Blendabilities™  Calypso Coral Light and Medium Marker, Stampin’ Write Smoky Slate Marker, White Gel Pen
Paper/Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Back to Black DSP
Accessories: Big Shot™, Chalk Talk Framelits™

Whispers of Smoky Wisteria- Pleasant Poppies for a Color and Sketch Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers! 

Here is the another card using the Pleasant Poppies background stamp for the Pals Paper Arts PPA244 Sketch Challenge and the CC522 Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (Smoky Slate, Wild Wisteria, Whisper White and for “dessert” a touch of green)- see the details here and gallery here .

Sorry about the lighting (the card does look better IRL)- it was a bit difficult to photograph since the Wisteria Wonder has a grey tint and with the Smoky Slate, the Wisteria Wonder tended to wash out a bit in the photo...I color enhanced it a bit for the photo above :-)

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

To create this card:

Adhere a piece of retired Wisteria Wonder Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and mount onto a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the layered panel, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base.
Add the vertical strip of Basic Black cardstock to the center of the card.

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the Pleasant Poppies background stamp image (re-sizing- this image was reduced a bit) and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the poppies using Stampin’ Write markers- Wisteria Wonder and Smoky Slate for the petals along with Pear Pizzazz for the stems. 

Carefully cut out the flowers (“fussy-cut”) and add a few white highlights using a White Gel Pen.  I had reduced the image a bit when I initially printed this out months ago to fill up my 8.5 x 11 blank document…if I had to do this over, I would use a larger image :-)

Punch out a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the 2 ½” Circle Punch.   Adhere all of the petals except the last one on the left using adhesive directly to the Whisper White layer. 

Layer the floral image circle onto a Smoky Slate cardstock circle (also punched with the 2 ½” Circle Punch and cut in half) and two Basic Black cardstock circles to create the layered frame for the petals.

Mount the layered circle directly to the card front and add the last floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Ink the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Punch out using the Word Window Punch and punch two additional Word Window shapes from Smoky Slate and Basic Black.

Create the banner points in all three punched pieces using the Hexagon Punch and cut the Smoky Slate and Basic Black in half.  Add the layers behind the stamped sentiment and mount the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Add a few Pearls to the sentiment layer to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Pleasant Poppies (MDS version), Moon Lake

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Stampin’ Write Markers- Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate, Pear Pizzazz; White Gel Pen

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, retired Wisteria Wonder DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Hexagon Punch, Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals®


Thanks again for visiting- I will be posting the new SU-Only Challenge early Tuesday morning so I hope you have a chance to stop by again soon!

Traveler- Three Challenges in One!



Hi Again Stampers!

I hope all of you are having a great weekend so far!  I rearranged my stamping area this week and did not have a chance to stamp until last night, so I wanted to share one more card that I was able to complete for a few of my favorite challenges- the SR271 Sketch Challenge using the FM201 FridayMashup! Color Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers F4A260 Double, Triple Challenge (three inks, three elements- see the details here and the gallery here). 

Again, I hope you have the time to stop by the above sites to check out the terrific inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the other entries!

To create this card:

Ink the ship stamp from Traveler using the Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the MFT Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the image. 
Color the image using an AquaPainter™ with Pacific Point Classic Ink for the ship’s hull and the ocean. 

Create a mask using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and sponge Pacific Point along with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink over the sky area (using the AquaPainter™ to blend over the moon, etc.).  Add color using the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker for the smoke, the Rich Razzleberry as well as Pacific Point markers to add additional detail to the ship and Basic Black to add waves and a few birds to the sky.

Sponge a bit of Pacific Point Classic Ink over the edges and mount onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Add the bitty flag with a scrap of DSP (I did not line up the stamped image low enough on the die- oops!) :-)

Create the banners with the retired Banner Blast set using Pacific Point and Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink and punch out with the Banner Punch.

Add the banners to the back of the focal image along with another one from Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

Use the Big Shot to emboss a piece of retired High Tide Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mount onto a piece of Pacific Point cardstock.  Trim and mount the panel onto the Rich Razzleberry card base.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ to cut a portion of a large circle from the retired High Tide DSP as well as Pacific Point cardstock. 

Mount the circles onto the card front and add a vertical strip of the High Tide DSP (Smoky Slate with anchors adhered to Pacific Point cardstock).

Add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere the three retired Circle Brads to finish off the card (FYI- I removed the brad points and used Hot Glue to mount the brads).

Stamp Sets:  Traveler, Banner Blast

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry; Stampin’ Write Markers- Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Basic Black

Paper:  Whisper White, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry; retired High Tide DSP

Thinking of You- Wetlands with Moon Lake :-)



Hi Again Stampers! 

Here is another card that I created this weekend using the CQC283 ColourQ Challenge along with the FMS178 Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. 

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time visit the above sites- wonderful Design Teams and inspiration from both galleries!

To create this card:

Using My Digital Studio, position the Wetlands Canadian Goose image onto a blank screen and print out onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image along with a circle the same size from Basic Black cardstock.

Color the image using an AquaPainter™ with Smoky Slate Classic Ink for the body (in place of Going Gray) and Stampin’ Write markers- Lucky Limeade (in place of Kiwi Kiss) for the grass and Basic Black to darken the neck and head areas as well as add a few more details on the feathers.

Split the Basic Black cardstock circle in half and adhere behind the goose image to allow just a bit of the layer to show.

Adhere two strips of retired Lucky Limeade Designer Series Paper (DSP) to strips of Basic Black cardstock and mount onto the piece of Moonlight DSP. Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Add the two strips of Basic Black cardstock (I had these in my scraps and they were previously embossed with the retired Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder). 

Add the 1 ¼” Burlap Ribbon strips to the retired Antique Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware and secure with brads to the focal image.

Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Create the points using the Hexagon Punch and punch another Word Window piece from Basic Black cardstock, use the Hexagon Punch to create the banner, split in half and mount behind the stamped sentiment.

Mount the focal image onto the card front and add the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
