Chalkboard Love Birds

I loved Beate's chalkboard tutorial so much I tried it today using these great love birds from Inkadinkado. I started with a black base and used my Cuttlebug to emboss. After using this fantastic chalk technique I punched the birds out and mounted on a scalloped nestablities circle. The paper on the bottom is a very shimmery, patterned paper by DCWV. Sorry I could not capture how cool it does look. I added black ribbon and some bling as well.
Do you love Ribbon? If so head to your nearest AC MOORE! At my local AC Moore in the ribbon area they have bags of ribbon for a dollar! I got like 6 bags and you get alot of ribbon. Not sure exactly how much but here is my bag filled with that ribbon. Here are a couple of photos of the ribbon....

Scalloped Layers - Starving Artistamps

I know I stink at the titles! Errr.... I need to be much more creative. Anyhow, this card was a stressful one. In the end it's OK but I am still looking at it thinking I'm really not sure perhaps too simple? Here is the thing... I started with the orange colors. I was going to use Cameo Coral/Blush Blossom and I did make something. But you know what I did? I took it all apart and kept just the orange flowers. This great image is from Starving Artistamps. It's from their new silhouette flowers. While I am on the topic of Starving Artistamps you have to check out the new Gallery. There will be loads and loads of fantastic SA samples there. You'll definitely want to check it out.

The base of this card is Stampin Up's Mellow Moss. I used my new scalloped circle nestablities for the layering. Can I tell you it still pains me to hear that "crackle" when you run it through the Cuttlebug to cut. The flowers were stamped using the Shades of Orange blending box by Marvy. I added some diamond Stickles to the flowers because you know I love the glitter. The black background I ran though the Cuttlebug using the script flower. The green background paper is from a DCWV stack pack and it is actually cool in person very shimmery (sorry the photo does not pick it up).
What do you think? In person I think it looks a bit better than I was able to capture on camera. I kind of like how the orange colors pop. BTW, the 3 layers of scalloped circles are all on pop dots so it all POPS out! Like I said just a tad better in person, I'm sorry I was not able to capture it. I am definitely not a photographer but I've been trying to work on that.

Don't forget the special at Starving Artistamps, where now through the end of March you can save 10% on your next order! Please see here for all the details.

Looking for my glass slipper


I haven't had too much stamp time the last few days. I have this cold which has been making me go to bed somewhat early. :-)
With my little ones turning two, my Grandma asked me to make birthday cards for them. I had this Cinderella stamp (All Night Media) that I thought would be great for my little girl.

I embossed the white background with the birthday saying. The blue polka dots paper is from Nana's Kids DCWV stack pack. I colored in using Copic markers and added some Ranger stickles for the glitter. I am not sure who the flower is by but I did pick 2 packs up at Michael's.

Well time to get dinner ready. I hope I will make some time later for stamping, but we just got a WII so I'm not sure about tonight! :-) I called Target 8am this morning and they had just rec'd a few in so I ran there to snag one! WOO HOO! But I really do want to stamp more, I have many stamps that haven't seen ink yet! I also really want to work on my designing skills to step it up a bit. Time is against me sometimes! But I'm sure most know that feeling.

Thanks for looking. Till later!

Got Carrots??

I had this great little bunny from Starving Artistamps that really needed to see some ink! I think he is so cute! My first impression was Easter card, but instead I came up with him "chasing" carrots! Although I suppose it would make a cute Easter card as well.
I stamped and cut him out using the scalloped circle nestabilities. Mellow Moss (Stampin Up) is the background and large circle. I stamped the rabbit on Vanilla. I pulled out my white flock (Stampin Up) to create a "fluffy" look and used diamond sickles for his tail and ears. The background paper is from a DCWV stack pack and the ribbon from Michael's. I didn't have a "carrot" stamp so I decided to make simple, basic looking carrots.

Don't forget the special at Starving Artistamps where you can save 10% off your next order. Details here.... Hurry, because you only have until the end of March. And if you act by Feb 27, you can receive a sheet of cling for FREE!

Lizzie Anne Sketch Challenge

I haven't participated in the Lizzie Anne sketch challenges in a bit so here is my take on the sketch from this past week.

I started with Stampin Up's Really Rust as the base for the card. The shimmery background is from a DCWC stack pack. I used LAD's set Far East for the stamped images. The "twist" this week was to stamp on your pattern paper. I really liked how the tree branch up top looked, but I had already stamped the "bush" on bottom so i just left things as is and added the embellishments. I think I would have preferred more of the cool branches instead but left it with my initial instinct.

Till tomorrow....

Springtime Basket Fun

Today we got about a half foot of snow and I'm making springtime baskets! After the wonderful challenges at Mothers and Daughters where one was to make a box (which for some reason I dreaded!) now I'm pumped up making boxes! Go figure! The only thing I should say is that I need to get a decent scoring tool. I have been debating the Score Pal so I may have to take the plunge soon.

For this basket I started with Stampin Up's Lavender Lace paper. I used one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock which is how I got the rectangle box instead of square. The pattern paper is from a DCWV stack pack. I used this great chick from Serendipity Stamps. Gotta love their images! I colored this cutie in using my Prismacolor markers and adding Rangers Stickles for the awesome glitter. Did I tell you guys how awesome my friend is? She had loads of Prismacolor markers that she had to buy awhile back for a landscaping class she took. Now she is no longer using them and gave me a whole bunch! How totally awesome is that, she rocks! I am still in the Copic Marker club as well but don't have that many yet. And yes I will practice blending!

Now that I'm not "afraid" of making boxes you may see more to come!

Spring Has Sprung!

Ok not yet, but soon enough. This little chickie is from Serendipity Stamps. Isn't he the cutest? I started this with Lauren's weekly sketch challenge in mind. I flipped her sketch and came up with this. This image is a bit larger than what she used but in the end it worked out.

I colored him in with prismacolor markers. Rangers stickles is what gives the glittery sparkle of the eggs and I also added some to his beak. Who says a duck can't have a glittery beak! The papers in the background are from DCWV. The green is a glitter stack where each page is all glitter! The flower in the corner is actually foam. I picked up some glittery "foamies" at Michaels.

Do you love Serendipity stamps? Did you know that Mothers and Daughters is carrying them now? Check it out here.

Back to stamping before the kiddies wake up from their nap.

Lauren's Saturday Sketch



Today I had time to work on Lauren's sketch challenge from last Saturday. This was the sketch. The only thing I realized just now is I didn't add the paper piercing, darn! Oh well. I used this cool Starving Artistamp flower. It's from the new silhouette flower line. These very bold stamps are just amazing.

For this card I started with Stampin Up Baroque Burgandy and embossed it with the script embossing folder for the Cuttlebug. The two background papers are from DCWV stack packs. The green one is very shimmery, not sure that the photo picks that up well. The ribbon actually from Walmart and I'm not sure about the paper flower in the corner, I believe it's from the Target dollar spot.

Don't forget the great deals over at Starving Artistamps. You have until the end of March to save 10% if you use my special code. See all the details here. Also if you ACT NOW you can get a free cling with your order.

NO STAMPS, WHAT?


I made this very simple card as a birthday card and didn't use any stamps! Can you believe that? I started with a cool sheet from a DCWV stack pack and embossed it with the happy birthday words embossing folder for the Cuttlebug. The ribbon is from Michaels as is the flower. As simple and plain as it is I thought that this came out nice.
I just love the Cuttlebug I can't wait to get some of the new embossing folders. I just recevied the scallop circle nestablities so I need to go play with that now!

MORE SILHOUETTE FLOWERS AND A CHALLENGE


I hope everyone had a good weekend, probably a long weekend. Our weekend was nice, we went out on Saturday night which was alot of fun. Reconnecting with the hubby after a long week with the kids is always a nice thing.

This is a simple card I made using one of the new silhouette flowers at Starving Artistamps. As usual I used my Stampin Up Baroque Burgundy. Seriously, do you think SU has extras of this color in their back room or something? I hate when stores take away things you love! Anyhow, I stamped this awesome silhouette on Baroque Burgundy and use large black eyelets in the corners. The base is SU Mellow Moss and all the patterned paper is by Basic Grey.

Remember you can save and receive free CLING at Starving Artistamps. Now until Feb 25st, buy one full sheet of unmounted rubber stamps, get one sheet of cling for it free! See the details here as to how you can save 10% on your next Starving Artistamps order. Check out all their new stuff here.

Silhouette Flowers - Starving Artistamps

Here is one of the new silhouette flowers from Starving Artistamps. For this one I started with Stampin Up Vanilla and used the script Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. The polka dot paper is from Making Memories. The ribbon is a beautiful satin ribbon I found at Walmart at year end 75% off and the shiny bling is from the Target dollar spot. I stamped the flowers using Stampin Up's Baroque Burgundy and mounted it on matching paper. I was so bummed with SU took away Baroque Burgundy and Eggplant Envy they were always my favorite colors. I don't know what I will do when I run out of the paper, which is going to happen! :-(

It's a Hoot!

This great owl is part of the Doodle Factory Animals set at Starving Artistamps. Isn't he the cutest! I colored him in using Prismacolor markers. He has glitter on the green part of his wing and on his beak and feet. You know how much I love glitter so I had to add some sparkle on him. I mounted him on Stampin Up Close to Cocoa. The brown "glittery" background paper is from a DCWV stack pack and the green patterned paper is from Basic Grey, Perhaps paper pad. The flower is a fabric one by Autumn Leaves.

Don't forget you still have time to save 10% on your next Starving Artistamps order. See the details here.

Mothers and Daughters Challenges - The Results...

I'm so excited! You may have seen my posts (here and here) for my submissions to the Grand Opening celebration challenges at Mothers and Daughters. The deadline was Wednesday and today they announced the winners for the challenges and the winner for the Guest designer.

Have a GRAPE Day!

I have some more wonderful images to share from Starving Artistamps. I used this bunch of grapes for this simple and sparkly card. I left it simple because of the sparkles; I thought it worked nicely that way.

I started with Stampin Up Vanilla as a base. The great background paper is from a huge paper slab by Provo Craft. This sheet was perfect because it had grapes on it and had the "aged" appearance I was going for. I stamped using Brilliance Graphic Black. I have to tell you this is great ink, in case you have not tried it. It is pigment but does dry pretty quickly. I purchased it as a "dew drop" because I thought of that like a sample and I will most definitely get a larger pad as well. These dew drop sizes though actually work well with inking a stamp no matter the size. I colored the grapes in using Prismacolor markers. I used 3 colors of stickles: Starry Night (purple like), Cinnamon and Diamond. I just love the way it sparkles and was psyched that this photo came out pretty good. I mounted the image on Mellow Moss (Stampin Up) and use pop dots to add some dimension in person.

I have more samples to come from the new images released as well. Don't forget you can save 10% on your next Starving Artist order, check out the details here...

Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes


I created this using a sketch from CPS. These great cupcakes are from Lizzie Anne Desings singles. I started with cardstock from Stampin Up and embossed it with the Cuttlebug. The patterned circle is from a glittery DCWV stack pack. The scallops I punched out with the scallop punch from Stampin Up. I used a 1/8 inch punch to create the lacey effect around the scallops. The "Warmest Wishes" sentiment is from Stampin Up. I colored the cupcakes using markers and used glitter gel pens to add some sparkle.

Valentine's Goodie Box and Card

Here it is the last challenge for Mothers and Daughters (challenges posted on the blogs for the DT members). This final challenge was Jennifer's and it was to make a small box and a card using a simple sketch. I was intimidated by the box, because in the past I didn't have much luck making these boxes. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the way it turned out and I'm happy with it. I decided in honor of Valentine's Day I would go with that theme and make the box and a matching card. I did not even use a stamp on this one, I hope that is ok. I had a bunch of Valentine's paper that I got at Target and the glittery cupid is from Target. The great puffy heart I picked up at Party city as well as the glittery heart cutout inside the box. I wanted to put some treats in the box but didn't have any in the house and didn't get a chance to buy some. I prettied it up with some tulle inside and added more hearts for fun. The ribbon is from Michaels and I added some heart brads as well.

After working on this project I do think I need to get a good scoring tool, perhaps the Score Pal. I have heard alot of great things about that one. So we shall see, maybe there will be more boxes to come. :-)

I was going to post this tomorrow but heck why not post it now! If I have time I may work on another card for Lynda's template challenge, but we'll see....

Mothers and Daughters - Layout and a Card


I have been busy working on the challenges at Mothers and Daughters Creations and it's been alot of fun. All the challenges were posted on the Design Team blogs. This card was Tamara's challenge and the layout (also Tamara's) is the bonus challenge. I am almost done with Jennifer's challenge as well, that one was indeed a challenge for me at first. It involves making a box, that means folding and measuring etc. LOL However, I think it turned out pretty cute I just need to add some finishing touches.

Here is the card for Tamara's challenge. Her challenge was to use the colors Red, Green and Pink. I used Rose Romance, Baroque Burgandy from Stampin Up and patterned paper from DCWV for the green. For my layout I used Lauren's Saturday weekly sketch and I think it really worked nicely. The ribbon I got as a bargain at A.C. Moore they were selling bags of ribbon for $1.00!!! I only got 3 bags, I should get some more it is very nice quality ribbon. I used the Stampin Up scallop punch and punched holes around the edge to give it a lacey look. In the center of each flower I added some bling. I colored in the flowers with Prismacolor markers. I am really starting to like the Prismacolor markers as well as the Copics. A good friend of mine gave me bunch of the Prismacolor's, how awesome is that? I am still in the Gina K Copic Marker club as well. I will have lots and lots of markers which I love!

Here is the scrapbook page. I did 8x8 sized, those are the sizes I have been making when I get around to making pages for my children. The challenge was to also use butterflies and have something pop out from the page. I used this great paper from Mothers and Daughters. It is brown and pink with lots of glitter. I cut around the pretty pretty flowers to create the "border" near the picture. I adhered it with pop dots so it does stand out. (I apologize if the photo does not show that well) The ribbon is by American Crafts. And of course a little girl page needs bling so I added some bling to the bottom. The base paper is Stampin Up's Regal Rose. The center paper is embossed and slightly shimmery which looks great, my apologlizes becaues I'm not sure who makes it. I buy lots of loose papers as well as packs, but with the single sheets I always forget to make note of the company before using it and covering up the credits on the back, errr. LOLOL

Lynda's Template Challenge

Mothers and Daughter Creations is celebrating their grand opening with some challenges. I have been working on all of them! This one is Lynda's challenge for the celebration. Her challenge was to use a card template. With it being close to Easter I chose to decorate an Easter Egg. I used the great little Chick from Imaginisce. I colored using Prismacolor markers, added stickles to give him glitter and then cut him out. The background paper is from a DCWV glitter stack pack. Can't you tell I love glittery things! The ribbon in the background was a fantastic find at AC Moore. It's by American Crafts and it came in a pack of 4, fabulous quality ribbon. Best part, I found it in the clearance section for $1.00!! The brads are also glittery by Making Memories (I believe). I used the Stampin Up scallop punch and a circle punch for under the chick. Both the circles and the chick on are pop dots so they stand out!

An Award for Me?

I couldn't belive it, but I have received the excellent blogging award from Lynda! I was so surprised and honored. And to be among the wonderful stampers she awarded makes it even more special.

Now it's my turn to present this honor to some excellent bloggers:

Jennifer - Glitter In My Hair
Meridith - Little Treasures
Becky - Hemidemisemiquaver


Now I must get back to working on all the challenges for Mothers and Daughters. I am really hoping I can get them all in on time! Part of one challenge is to make a box! It's not the design of the box that scares me it's the folding! LOLOL Without a Score Pal that will be challenging I think. YES I KNOW I haven't purchased a Score Pal yet what is wrong with me??? I have a scoring tool that works ok but does not measure so I hand measure and then score. In the age of cool gadgets I feel like I'm in the stone ages! Anyhow I will post the projects I get done for this challenge once they are all complete. Did I mention these challenges are for a chance at being a guest designer in March, pretty cool huh?

I'm going to leave you with a very simple but cheerful card I made using Stampin Up's Hedgehog Happiness. I like the layout but I could have used better colors, the Barely Banana on the Vanilla didn't quite work well. The green is Mellow Moss and the ribbon is from Michaels. I colored him in using markers. And of course the background is my handy dandy embossing folders for the Cuttlebug, gotta love the bug!

Announcing Grace......

Here she is Doodle Factory's Grace Girl. There are 4 available at Starving Artistamps, these gals are pretty cool. I stamped this image using Brilliance Graphite Black. I really like this ink it stamps so bold and beautiful. I colored Grace in using my Prismacolor and Copic markers. I am really starting to love both of these markers. I just need practice blending and shading.

I wanted to make this somewhat of a simple card because I didn't want to take away from the beauty of the image. My background is Stampin Up's Brillant Blue and Grace is on Yo Yo Yellow. The floral background paper is from a DCWV stack pack. I added some ribbon, fabric flower and glitter brad. I used pop dots to adhere Grace so in person she stands out on the card. The soft watermark image you see on the bottom is using another great new stamp from Starving Artistamps large silhouette flowers sheet. You will want to check these out and remember you can save 10% on your SA order. Check back I will have more samples to come! Maybe even a brunette Grace Girl.

Starving Artistamps - New Images

Yesterday I received a bunch of new Starving Artistamp images from their new releases. Let me tell you they are AWESOME! I have to admit I was not sure of what their sizes would be like, but they are big and stamp beautifully. These first two I have to share are from the Tulips and Orchids sheet. Check out this flower......


I know it's the same card layout. Initially I stamped the flower a few times and decided to color them in using different colors. I cut both of them out and just ended up going with the same layout. At first I was not sure if I would share both because I like the pink one better, but then I figured why not show you guys both. They are both colored in with markers. I added some glitter to the middles. The background is of course using the Cuttlebug embossing folders and the pattern paper is from my DCWV stack packs.

I will work more with this great flower some and see what other ideas I come up with. Stay tuned there is alot more coming from Starving Artistamps. Don't forget you have until the end of March to get your 10% discount! Check out the details here.

Congrats Giants....


So it did push 60 degrees today but it was a bit rainy so it was a damp chill. However I did go out in my new GIANTS Tee! I'm not a huge football fan, but my DH is a huge Giants fan so it was so awesome to see them win and I actually enjoyed watching it. Yesterday he made it to the city to see the parade and said it was awesome.

Ok, this card is not Giants related but it turned out to be a cute spring time card. I used this chick I picked up at the dollar spot at Michaels. The base is Barely Banana by Stampin Up embossed using my Cuttlebug. The patterned paper is from DCWV.

Today I received new stamps from Starving Artistamps, and let me tell you they are AWESOME!!! I've begun playing so I will have samples soon!!! Don't forget you have until the end of March to save 10% on your next Starving Artistamps order... DETAILS HERE......

Has anyone used the Fiskars Border punches? I got one on sale the other day and tried it and I had to stand on it to make it work. I actually wrote Fiskars and they said they would replace it. I was wondering what other experiences are with these guys. I love Fiskars cutting tools and have some punches so I didn't think it would be that hard to punch like some punches can be.

Verve Visual Sketch Challenge

Verve Visual is having a sketch challenge for their March Guest Designer. I was psyched to give it a try. They have a great line, I just wish I was able to have some in my hands for this challenge. I do have to order some soon. I used an old Stampin Up color Baroque Burgandy for the base. The cool background papers are from Cosmo Cricket. And the brown ribbon is by American Crafts. The great bird is from the Garden Collage set by Stampin Up.

Sunshine Chickie

Recently I purchased some great stamps from Mothers and Daughters, they are a new online company. These great clear stamps are by Imaginisce. I started with a Mellow Moss (Stampin Up) base and embossed it with the Cuttlebug. The great paper I used in the background is also from Mothers and Daughters. I stamped the chick on white cardstock and colored in using markers. I added pink glitter to his wing. I outlined the "sunshine" sentiment with my glitter gel pens in pink and adhered it with pop dots to make it stand out. Recently on a trip to Joannes I picked up some DCWV stack packs on sale because they were considered Christmas merchandise. One pack at Glitter paper, so the punched out "glitter" circles are from that pack.

Lizzie Anne's Weekly Challenge.

Lizzie Anne Designs posted their weekly challenge in their forum last week. It was a nice sketch with a twist, to use it and create a masculine Valentine's card. That is indeed a challenge. I have (and I'll bet most of you guys do as well) so many "foofy" (is that a word LOL, it's a Mariaism as my DH would say) stamps which I love but always forget to think about masculine ones.


Anyhow, here is what I came up with. I decided to go with a red and black theme for color. I pulled out my distress inks from Ranger to create the look that I stamped the main image on. The background papers are from Cosmo Cricket and Daisy D's. I felt like it needed something more so I added the black buttons. For some reason today I was having issues getting a good photo, maybe because I used dark papers. That's it the dark papers, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOLOL. Anyhow, I hope you can view it ok. Thanks for looking.

Crafty Secrets

This past week I told you guys about a new set I got from Crafty Secrets. I got the coffee and tea set. I love coffee and tea and thought this set was pretty cool. A while back I was into some vintage stamps and images but then went back to the cute stuff. I do have a bunch of the vintage images though and have been looking at them again. I want to use them and see if they can fit my current style. I remember Lauren posted a cute card using this set, which is probably why I remembered this great set when I saw they had it at my local scrapbook store. Anyhow, with the 25% off sale going on it was a good time to buy it. Here is my first creation using this great set.
