A Blushing Snowman

It was my turn to send out supplies to our CCEE group. So I sent this gorgeous blush colored decorative paper Tres Jolie by My Minds Eye, and some of my favorite Pearls by Kaisercraft.

Check out our CCEE stamper's blog to see what the other girls have done with these supplies.

I started off by stamping this darling Inkadinkado image on Vanilla Cream (Prismatics), with Tuxedo Black (Memento). I then colored it with my copics. The snowman head I colored with my Inkssentials white Opaque Pen, and added a bit of sparkle to the berries and flakes with my Quickie Glue Pen and ultra fine crystal glitter. The small rectangle pieces on the panel trio also have a thin stripe of glitter on them. Each panel is sewn, and I embossed the edges with my new Just My Type Cuttlebug embossing folder borders. To finish off the card, I added the satin ribbon, Blush Pearls (Kaisercraft), and cut the edges with my scallop rotary cutter (Fiskars) That's it.

I hope you had a fabulous weekend, and that your weekend is off to a great start!!

Supplies:
Stamps - Inkadinkado
Paper - Je Taime *Love* Damask (My Mind's Eye), Vanilla Cream (Prismatics)

Snow Owl in Silver

I love making elegant cards!! So, when I saw this Winter Birds set by Inkadinkado at Stamper's Dream, my heart went pitter-patter. I had to have it. This is my second card with this set, and you'll probably see more before Christmas is here.

This was really easy to make. I let all the products do the work for me...*grin*. To start, I inked up the owl image with Versamark and embossed it with Silver ep (JudiKins), onto Neenah Solar White cs. I layered it with Scotch Mounting tape onto ovals that I cut with my Oval Nestabilities and Cuttlebug. The white bg is also embossed with my swirls cuttlebug folder.

Now, the rhinestone stickers. I ordered them online probably about a half-a-year ago or more, without looking at the dimensions. OH MY!! Talk about HUGE swirls. Some were 6" long. I put them aside not knowing what to do with them at the time. Well, I've been organizing my stamp room lately and came across these rhinestone swirls again. When I thought about making a silver and white card with this owl...I thought how cool it would be to have them flowing down from the oval. Woila!! They were really easy to use.

Finally, I stamped *Christmas Cheer* (Inque Boutique) with Smokey Gray (Versafine) on the top and embossed it with Clear ep (Judikins). For a finishing touch, I added the wired Silver Ribbon (May Arts) and some individual rhinestone stickers (Me and My Big Ideas Icons) on the sentiment and corners.


Supplies: Stamps - Winter Birds (Inkadinkado), Sentiment (Stephanie Barnard Christmas - Inque Boutique) Paper - Metallic Silver, Basic Gray (Stampin' Up), Solar White (Neenah) Ink - Smokey Gray (Versafine), Watermark (Versafine) Accessories - Rhinestones, ep, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Corner Ticket Punch (Stampin' Up), Ribbon

We've been *Tagged*

This week, Carolyn (Cammie on SCS) challenged us CCEEers to make a tag. It could be for any occasion. So I left off the sentitment so I could use it for whatever.

I just received some *core* paper in the mail yesterday and wanted to play with it. I just sanded the black a bit and the lavender poked through. I embossed the Lilac (Flourishes) image with JudiKins Detail Black, and colored it with copics. I added a touch of glitter with my Quickie glue pen, some rhinestone stickers and fibers, and that was it. The edges have some Milled Lavender (Ranger Distress Ink) on them too to give a bit of depth.

I almost forgot to tell you...I didn't have the right colored pearl, so I colored one of my Kaisercraft ones with a copic to match. How cool is that?

If you'd like to see what the other girls have done, or would like to participate in this challenge too, click HERE for the details.

I hope you have a fabulous, fabulous week!! We're taking our son to college this week....18 hours away. YIKES!! I will have a few cards post dated while we're gone, so don't write me off completely!! LOL

Stamps - Lilac Set (Flourishes)
Paper - Black, Ivory, Core Paper

My Sweet Gingerbread Friend

I think this mouse is just the cutest. And this gingerbread man is darling. I made this card for the Color Challenge on SCS Tuesday, but had problems with the power in my house. So I wasn't able to photograph it until yesterday.

The My Sweet Friend (Impression Obsession) image was stamped with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Soar White (Neenah) CS. It's colored with copics, the bg is embossed with Swiss Dots and Argyle (Cuttlebug) embossing folders, and each panel is raised with dimensional tape. I also ink distressed the edges with Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink)


Here's a close-up so you can see the dimension.


Supplies:
Stamps - My Sweet Friend (Impression Obsession)
Paper - Iced Orange, Medium Blush Red, Suede Brown Medium (Prismatics), Solar White (Neenah)
Accessories - Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug embossing folders (Swiss Dots and Argyle), Copics, Brads, Dimensional Tape

Seahorse Shaker

I've been wanting to make a shaker card with this Ocean Seahorse (Impression Obsession) image since I got it awhile back. Thanks to Amelia (WendyBell'sGirl on SCS) I had the perfect opportunity today. She provided a wonderful Sketch. Thanks Amelia!!

The seahorse is colored with copics and has a touch of sparkle added with my Quickie Glue pen and Ultrafine glitter. I cut the frame with my circle nestabilites and mounted it with a piece of acetate and dimensional tape onto the seahorse image circle. The inside is filled with sequins (Hero Arts).



To finish off the edges so the tape didn't show, I took a 1/8" piece of the same colored cs as the frame and glued it around the circle. I then *caulked* the edges with White Opal Liquid Pearls and Ultrafine Glitter.

To make the embossed corners, I just put a circle nestability inside of a square one, ran it through my cuttlebug, and then again to emboss it. I love the look. Finally, I added a bit more bling with Adornit gemstones and some organdy ribbon.


Supplies:
Stamps - Ocean Seahorse (Impression Obsession)
Paper - Frosted Teal, Intense Teal (Prismatics), Shimmery White (Stampin' Up), Ally's Wonderland forget-me-dots (
S.E.I.)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories - Copics, Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Adornit gems, sequins (Hero Arts), Quickie Glue Pen, Ultrafine glitter, Liquid Pearls, ribbon, circle punch, dimensional tape

Poinsettia

I love poinsettia's, and I love Northwoods Images. So when I saw this Pot with Poinsettia, I had to have it.

First, I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with Black Onyx Versafine. I then embossed it with Detail Black ep (JudiKins).

I then watercolored it with Adirondack Reinkers and added a touch of Platinum Stickles to the centers and petals to give a bit of sparkle. I mounted it on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock base and scored the top and bottom half with my scorpal.

To top it off, I added a silver cord to the top and bottom. I wanted to keep the bg simple in order to show the beauty of this image.




I so wish I were a better photographer so I could show not only the depth of the petals, but of the colors too. Here's a close-up of the petal layers. I love Paper Tole because it makes the images come to life: so to speak.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your week is off to a great start and that you're finding much inspiration for your creations!!

Happy Stamping!!!

Supplies:
Stamps - Pot with Poinsettia and Pine (Northwoods)
Paper - Classic Solar White 110 lb (Neenah), Watercolor

A Rearview for Bertie...

I made this card for a dear friend of mine: Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) on SCS. She's having surgery on her hand tomorrow and will not be able to stamp for 6 weeks! Oh, the horror!! Well, to cheer her up, a member of our CCEE group thought it would be a great idea to send her get well cards. Click HERE to see what the other girls made for her.

Why a polar bear's butt you ask? Well, early on, when CCEE was just beginning, we all were given nicknames for various reasons. Long story short, Charlene ended up with Bert. She also claims she has a big butt do to all the M&M's she eats while stamping and commenting on people's cards. Well, we have it on good authority, that that's not the case, but she will always be *Big Butt Bertie* to us. Thus the cards with either M&M's or Big Butts.

For this card, I stamped this Polar Rearview (Third Coast Rubber Stamps) with Tuxedo Black (Memento) on Iced Teal (Prismatic) cardstock. I then took a Q-tip and colored randomly over the bear with my White Craft Ink (Stampin' Up), and then embossed it with Clear Detail Embossing Powder by JudiKins. Of course, when you emboss, you get a shiny look and I didn't want that. So I rubbed my sanding block over it gently!! Woila...texture without the shine!! Click on the photo for a larger view.

I then cut some snow pieces with Frosted Teal (Prismatic) CS and sponged some more White Craft ink over the edges. The Polar bear is cut out and mounted on a Nestabilities circle of Iced Teal. The Nautical Blue bg is pierced with an ornare piercing template in order to make it look a bit like snow flurries.

The sentiment is computer generated and punched out with the large tag punch by SU.

I finally dressed it all up a bit with of Crystal Stickles, and some winter brads (Around the Block)

Supplies:
Stamps - Polar Rearview (Third Coast Rubber Stamps)
Paper - Iced Teal, Frosted Teal, Kraft, Nautical, White (Prismatics)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Craft White (Stampin' Up)
Accessories - Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Tag Punch (Stampin' Up), brads, Stickles, dimensional tape, ornare piercing template, piercing tool, Clear Detail Embossing Powder (JudiKins)

CNFS - Stamps'nCoffee

It's time once again for our weekly CCEE challenge. This week was our CNFS (Catchy Name Featured Stamper) that we choose from Splitcoaststampers.

Stamps'nCoffee was chosen for this week. We were to have a coffee theme, and to receive a bonus we had to include a *stamp* somewhere on the card. Well, I'm all about bonuses even if they mean diddly!! So my stamp is in the bottom left corner of this tag card.

If you'd like to see what the other girls did with this theme, check out our CCEE Stampers blog. You can play along too. We'd love to see what your ideas are!!

Those of you who know me know I'm not a huge fan of monkeys. But this little guy is actually growing on me. I'm starting to really grow fond of him. Isn't he sweet with this warm cozy cup of coffee?

I colored this Changito with Cocoa *coffee...shhhhh* (Stampedous)with copics and used my Nestabilities to cut the framing out. Each panel is mounted with dimensional tape. I also sewed around the edges to keep the country cozy theme going.

Supplies:
Stamps - Changito Cocoa (Stampendous)
Paper - Intense Teal and Suede Brown Dark (Prismatics), Jade's Garden (Kaisercraft)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories - Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Copics, scallop rotary cutter (Fiskars), sewing machine, Circle punch 1", American Craft Ribbon, Tag Corner Punch (Stampin' Up), brads, dimensional tape, make-up sponge

Encourage Reading!!! Bookmark

I am an avid reader!! I LOVE to read! And I love bookmarks. I have a fun collection actually.

Unfortunately, neither of my kids have developed an eagerness to read. I don't know how that happened since I've encouraged them since they were very little, and set a good example by letting them see me read often....LOL

Well, here's the really funny part to how this bookmark came into existence. My oldest graduated from H.S. this past May and is heading off to college in a week and 4 days. He DOES NOT like to read. Well, for one of his General Classes that he's required to take, he received a book in the mail that had to be read by the time he started his first class. Homework? Over the summer? You've got to be kidding!!!

I LOVE IT!!! Anyway, he was just using a ripped piece of paper to keep his place marked. So, I made this simple, and not *frou-frou*, bookmark to keep track of where he stopped...which was only about 20 pages in. Who can stop after only 20 pages? Are you kidding me?

I thought these little magnetized bookmarks would make a great gift from a teacher to his/her students. They're easy to make, and use very little paper. I've found that the magnetized bookmarks stay put the best. Love 'em. So I just cut a 2 5/8" x 5 1/4" inch rectangle of black with an 1/8" smaller dp piece, folded it in half. I put Basicgrey Magnetic Snaps on the inside and put a circle on top that would stick out of the book; making it easier to find your page. That's it...You could use different colors, scrap pieces of cardstock, and a variety of Fonts.

To make this circle, I used my JustRite stamper!! LOVE this tool. To get the different colors, I used the Wooden Stamp Mount. The three sets I used for this circle are: Curlz Font "Fun Borders" for the border, Special Occasions Font for "READ", and the Small Letters for the year. I inked up the image with Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up) and colored every other border circle and the year with black.

Just Rite has a whole bunch of new sets now too, and Michelle at Stamper's Dream will be carrying them really soon. They are so much fun, and are so versatile!!

Supplies:
Stamps - JustRite Stamper Kits
Paper - Kaisercraft dp, Black, Suede Dark Brown (Prismatics), Neenah Classic Natural
Ink - Chocolate Chip (SU), Black marker
Accessories - Magnetic snaps (Basicgrey), Nestabilities

Nature's Dance

I loved this image Nature's Dance (Penny Black) the minute I saw it. It's sweet simplicity lends itself to so many color possibilities. I chose a mainly white card today with a hint of Baby Blue Medium (Prismatic) because I wanted to add Fun Flock to my Doodlebug double-sided adhesive shapes. I used glitter the last time, but I wanted a softer look for this card.

The image was stamped on Prismatic White with Tuxedo Black (Memento), and also with stamped off Bashful Blue (Stampin' Up). I cut out the blue bird and mounted it with dimensional tape over the black image, and coated the berries with Xmas Red Stickles.


I found the silver ribbon attachment piece in the jewelry section at Walmart. I have no idea what it's called or what it's for in regards to jewelry, but it worked perfectly to attach my ribbon. I just added Adornit jewels to the middle of the jewelry piece, and around the outside of the card.

I also put an ultrafine layer of crystal glitter on the bluebird with my Quickie Glue Pen.

Supplies:
Stamps - Nature's Dance (Penny Black)
Paper - Baby Blue Medium and White (Prismatic)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Bashful Blue (Stampin' Up)
Accessories - Stickles, Quickie Glue Pen, Ultrafine glitter, jewelry piece, adornit jewels, Stick with it adhesive transfers (Doodlebug), Fun Flock, Corner Ticket punch (Stampin' Up), organdy ribbon

Sending Happiness...

Rox always provides such awesome sketches on SCS. I always look forward to her Wednesday sketch each week. This week I flipped the sketch and added a strip of cs across the bottom third so I could make a Platform for this Night Owl from Clearly Wordsworth's set, It's Your Day.

For the background, I just took my Adirondack Dye Ink pads and ran them across Solar White Neenah paper. Always start with your lightest color. I started with Butterscotch, then added Caramel, Rust, and finally a touch of Pesto.

I then stamped the Baroque Leaves Background (JudiKins) with Tuxedo Black (Memento). The owl was inked up with Rust then rock -n- rolled with Espresso (Adirondack) and stamped on Sunflower Medium Prismatic Card Stock.

Finally, I ink distressed all the edges with Slate (Adirondack). All the CS is Prismatics. I used Sunflower Medium and Dark, black and white.

The dots are all rain dopts by Cloud9 Design.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies :
Stamps - It's Your Day (Clearly Wordsworth), Baroque Leaves (JudiKins)
Paper - Sunflower Medium and Dark, Black, White,
(Prismatics) Neenah Solar White

A challenging technique...

Whoooooaaa!! This was tough!! Frances (StampOwl) challenged us to try a new technique this week. It's called Black Magic.

I''m not happy with this card at all, but I have to post it due to the challenge.....*groan*. If you'd like to see what the other girls have done, go to the CCEE Stamper's blog. There are also instructions there on how you can play along.

The image is stamped with white craft ink and colored with color pencils. Well, it's hard to see by the photo...glittered images are atrocious to photograph...but the bird is red, and the *Joy* is green. Both are coated with Ultrafine Art Institute glitter. All the panels are edged with the white craft also.

Now for the white bg panel, I used a *new to me* product. Doodlebug Design Inc. has come up with double-sided adhesive shapes. The ones I used are called Fancy That stick with it adhesive. You just peel them off, stick them to the surface you would like, peel the top layer off and sprinkle your glitter on them. Way cool!! You could also sprinkle velvet flock on it too. Way too fun!! The Unity Stamps snowflake panel was stamped with SU's white craft also and has Creative Imagination's gems in their centers.

I finished off the card with some offray ribbon and a snowflake charm. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:
Stamps - Snowflake Joy (Unity Stamps)
Paper - Black, Crabapple Medium and White (Prismatics)
Ink - White Craft (Stampin' Up)
Accessories - Prisma color pencils, glitter (Art Institute), ribbon, gems, Stick with it Adhesive transfers, mounting tape, snowflake charm

Wisemen Still Seek Him

Michele (Shel9999) challenged stampers to use Jewels for yesterday's Ways to Use it Challenge.
I started this card yesterday, but my daughter got a new bedroom set for her 15th birthday, so most of the day was spent moving everything *old* out, and all the new in.

I stamped this Northwoods scene *We Three Kings* with Black Onyx (Versafine) on 140lb hot pressed Fabriano watercolor paper. I colored the image with my prisma watercolor pencils and blended with the Stampin'Up blender pen.

The star has some extra sparkle due to my Quickie glue pen and Ultrafine glitter, and I pierced the purple borders with an Ornare piercing template.

For the jewels, I used Amuse Creative Candy for the teeny tiny jewels, and Hero Arts Gemstones for the star center.

When I first saw this image I thought it would look great with the 3 Wisemen on the hill paper toled. Irl they really look like they're on a hill with Bethlehem a ways away. Here's a close-up so you can see the dimension.

Supplies:
Stamps - We Three Kings and Wisemen Still Seek Him (Northwoods)
Paper - Sage Medium and Majestic Purple Medium, Black (Prismatics), Fabriano Watercolor paper
Ink - Black Onyx (Versafine)
Accessories: Prisma Watercolor Pencils, blending pen (Stampin' Up), Quickie Glue Pen, Ultrafine glitter, Rhinestone stickers, piercing template, dimensional tape

My first Changito....

I don't always get to play in the SCS challenges, but I liked today's Sketch and picked out my papers and image last night. I finally got the opportunity to finish it this afternoon.

It's an easy one...no frou-frou, and minimal embellishing. I don't have much time today, but I wanted to use some of the images that Joy and Daisy (Eclectic Paperie) were kind enough to send me.

This little guy is Changito Shovel, and looks so darling as he works so hard. I colored him with copics, added frosted lace stickles to the snow, flakes, and hat, tied some ribbon, glued the flake to the center and added some stickles to that also. I *tagged* the corners with my Stampin' Up corner tag punch, and that is IT!! Woila...simple, but cute!

Supplies:
Stamps - Changito (Stampendous)
Paper - Isn't It Romantic (Inque Boutique), Crabapple Dark and Medium and Sage Medium (Prismatics)
Accessories - ribbon, copics, stickles, snowflake brad, corner tag punch (Stampin' Up)

Manger Kisses

SCS's color challenge today was a farewell to the last *in colors* We could use any neutral with one of them. I chose soft sky.

I thought it would be perfect for this darling image called Manger Kisses by Stampendous. This was a definite *have to have* stamp.

I wanted to keep the bg soft, so I used one of my absolute favorite stamping lines...Tres Jolie by My Mind's Eye. Yummy!! I also edged the bottom of the ivory panel with one of the new cuttlebug border panels. LOVE 'em!! The pearls are by Kaisercraft, and Michelle will have those in store really soon. Talk about GORGEOUS!! She should also have the new cuttlebug folders soon too. Be sure to check there often. New stuff is arriving all the time!!

I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black (Memento), colored it with my copics, and coated the wings with Lace Stickles.

This is a pretty straightforward, easy-peasy card, but I'm happy with the soft look and the simplicity of it.

I hope you have a blessed week. Thank you so much for dropping in. Hopefully I've been able to inspire you to ink up those stamps. What awesome therapy!!

Supplies:
Stamps - Manger Kisses (Stampendous)
Paper - Tres Jolie Mon Cheri (My Mind's Eye), Island Mist Light and Vanilla Cream (Prismatics)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories - Nestabilites, Cuttlebug, Pearls, stickles, offray ribbon, Tag corner (SU)

Best Fishes FS

This weeks featured stamper on SCS is Michelle (Shellapoo). She has a heart as big as Texas and uses it to encourage ill children. All while struggling with a debilitating disease herself. To read more about her generosity, click HERE. Her gallery can be found HERE. And finally, the card I cased is HERE.

When you case someone on SCS, you have to make at least two changes. I loved Michelle's layout and sewing, so I kept mostly to that...I eliminated one of the trios on the side. I also changed the colors, my stamp image, and added layers! LOTS of layers...*grin* Oh, how I love layering!! I also added dew droplets to the bottom left and a ribbon on the side...oh, and the circle over the rectangle piece.

The Ocean Fish (Impression Obsession) was stamped with Tuxedo Black (Memento) and is paper toled and colored with copics, with ultrafine glitter added with my Quickie Glue Pen. I added crystal Stickles to the bubbles too. The sentiment, Best Fishes, is also by Impression Obsession.

The stars are cuttlebug diecuts with SU's large eyelets in the center. The sewing around the panels was done with a green metallic thread. It fits with the sparkle of the fish. I like the distressed look with a bit of sparkle!





Here's a couple of close-ups so you can see the layers and the sewing a bit better.











Supplies:

Stamps - Ocean Fish and Best Fishes (Impression Obsession)
Paper - Baby Powder (Imaginisce), Nautical Blue Light, Spring Willow Medium, Birchtone Medium (Prismatics)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories - Copics, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities (Spellbinders), sewing machine, metallic thread, Stitched ribbon (Stampin' Up), Dew Droplets, Large Eyelets (Stampin' Up), Brads, Crystal Stickles, Quickie Glue Pen, Ultrafine crystal glitter, Scotch mounting tape

My first Acetate card...

Boy is this ever hard to photograph!! Kudos to those of you who have mastered photographing acetate cards, because I struggled with this...oh how I struggled!!

Well, it's time again for my weekly CCEE card. This month Frances (who I call Hoots...aka StampOwl on SCS) was in charge of coming up with the challenges. Her first challenge was to create an acetate card, and it must be goofy since Clown day is in a couple of days, and the 6th is Lucille Ball's birthday. Well, both of these were a stretch for me. Goofy? Not my forte. Acetate? Never done it. Well, I found it's not nearly as hard to work with acetate as I feared. I purchased these wonderfully thick Clear Card Sheets from Cornish Heritage Farms. This is TOUGH stuff!!

Here's my take on a goofy acetate card. If you'd like to see what the other CCEE girls have done with acetate, click HERE. We'd also love to have you play along. Just follow the instructions on the CCEE Stampers blog.

I stamped the Inque Boutique pumpkin with Tuxedo Black (Memento) on Papertrey white and colored it with my copics. The face has a touch of glitter that I adhered with my Quickie glue Pen. The swirls from the Halloween Distressed set were stamped with black Stazon and colored on the back with an orange Sharpie pen. I then stamped the web and spider on the back piece. I also added some black rhinestone stickers (K&Company) randomly on the card front.

Finally, I added orange ribbon that I got as a sample from Amuse. Thank you!!

Here's a close-up of the inside panel. I should have added glitter to the web. I think I'll do that later.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I sincerely hope you have a fabulous week!!


Supplies:
Stamps - Halloween Distressed (Inque Boutique)
Paper - Clear Card Sheet (Cornish Heritage Farms), Bazzill, White (Papertrey), Black
Accessories - Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Copics, Glitter, Quickie Glue Pen, Orange Sharpie, Scotch mounting tape, Rhinestone stickers (K&Company)
