Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year Pictures, Images and Photos

I just wanted to take a moment to wish all of you the happiest of New Years!! May 2010 be filled with joys and blessings beyond measure!

Also, I wanted to let you know that Michelle at Stamper's Dream has just put all of her Spellbinders on sale to make room for new product next year!! She also has My Mind's Eye (my all time favorite dp company) paper and all the JustRite stamps on sale among other things!! Be sure to check out her Sales and Specials section. Just Click HERE.

A Red Jeep


Isn't this jeep fun? My BIL LOVES jeeps and RED!!! So, when I saw this image from Incredible Stamps, of course I had to get it....and color it red with my Copics... LOL I then added some foliage with a wonderfully versatile Evergreen Branch by Inkadinkado. I think it adds a bit of warmth to the scene.

Now, I have to tell you about one of my new favoritest (that so needs to be a word :) sets by Tim Holtz. It's called Slight Alterations, and it's fabulous for creating bg's and dirtying up an image. I inked up the sanded image with Latte (Adirondack Dye Ink), stamped it off, and then stamped it directly over the image to give it a slight grunge look. I ended up covering most of the bg, but I used the other two images with Latte and Slate (Adirondack), to dirty it up a bit.

The sentiment was created by using the JustRite set Just a Note 1 5/8" Borders and Centers (yeah, I know.....I use that set a lot....*grin*), and the border was made with a Martha Stewart Border Punch. Finally, I ink distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink). btw....the card is 4" x 4".

Don't forget...Stamper's Dream has some awesome Sales and Specials found HERE.

Thanks for stopping in today!!
Hope you have a fantabulous weekend!!!
Happy Stamping!!

A Square Thank You



Happy Tuesday my friends!! I'm so sorry for the huge gap in postings, but I've been spending some quality time with my family. And now, since the holidays are over, I needed a few thank you's. I tend to lean towards my JustRite stamps for my thank yous, because there is such a variety of ways to frame them, and in a simple, yet elegant, shabby chic, or CAS way. I chose to go the elegant route this time because there were a few images I wanted to work with.

I especially love JR's newest Square Frame releases!! Talk about a variety of fun, gorgeous, and versatile designs. The 2" Square Decorative Frames have to be some of my all time favorites of all the JR images!! I stamped them onto 4 different Prismatic colors: Mystic Medium, Island Mist Light, Crabapple Dark, and Wizard Medium using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I then used the same ink, stamped the "Thank You" sentiment from the Just a Note 1 5/8" Borders and Centers set onto Neenah Natural White cs and popped it up with Dimensional Tape (Scotch).



FYI: Stamper's Dream is having a 10% off sale of all the JustRite stamps!! Including the newest releases! How cool is that!!?!? Click HERE to see all the sales and specials.

The Thin Striped bg was made with some ultra fun Background stamps from Impression Obsession. Stamper's Dream carries these fabulous Cover a Card 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" Cling images and the fantastic Mega Mount Rocker Block too. (She's out right now, but a shipment is on the way.) I tell ya, I love that mount!! I actually layed the bottom edge against the bottom of my paper and rolled it up onto my paper. By doing that I had no problems stamping the stripes perfectly straight!! AWESOME!!

BTW...the card measures 4" x 4 ", the border punch along the bottom is Martha Stewart, and the ribbon is American Crafts and PTI. I also added a hint of bling with some Icons Rhinestones by Me & My Big Ideas.

That about explains it!
I hope you have a fantastic week. Stop by in a couple of days, I'll have another card to share with you on Thursday.

Happy Stamping my friends!!

Tired...

I made this tire card for one of my nephews this week. It's ultra simple to make. All you need is the following Spellbinders' Nestabilities dies: Scallop Circle, Inverted Scallop Circle, various Standard Circles. For the center, I used my tried and true go to....JustRite. For this center I stamped the star sentiment from the set Just a Note 1 5/8" Borders and Centers with Tuxedo Black (Memento).

To get the "tire treads" you first use a Scalloped Circle die (Spellbinders). You then line up a slightly smaller Circle die (Spellbinders) over the scallops. Just enough so it won't completely cut off the scallop. I then attached the tire shape to a previously cut circle shaped card.

See...easy!!
Hope you're having a wonderful week!
Happy Stamping!!




Stamps:
Just a Note (JustRite)
Paper: Black (Prismatics), Neenah, Brushed Silver (SU!)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: Scalloped Circle, Inverted Scalloped Circle, Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Copics, Dimensional Tape

A CAS Silent Night...

I have a very simple card to share with you today. All I used was Spellbinders' Star and Square Nestabilities dies. Cut and embossed them, added some glitter around the star edges and popped them up with some dimensional Tape. I then stamped the gorgeous sentiment "Silent Night" from the Verve set Star of Wonder, with Versafine's Black Onyx.

You really should check out the sale, and darling free Digi image that Julee is offering over at Verve too. Click HERE!!!

Sorry I've been so absent lately. My son's home from college and we're doing a lot of family stuff. I do have another card to share with you again tomorrow though.

Hope you're enjoying this holiday season.
Happy stamping my friends!

Relax!


Christmas is almost here, and if we're not careful, we can let the busyness of it all suck the joy right out of this season. This sweet Penny Black image called In a Nutshell, just spoke to me today. Sometimes we just need to Relaaaaaaaaax!!!! This image would be darling as a baby card too. Either way, I just thought it was precious!! It's stamped with Versamark onto watercolor paper, embossed with Detail Black ep, and watercolored with Tombows. I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch as a starting point. The Melon Berry ribbon is from Papertrey, and the crocheted ruffle is May Arts ribbon. The Rhinestones are Kaisercraft, and the scalloped border was made with a Martha Stewart border punch. Oh, and I almost forgot, the gorgeous and sweet paper is from one of my all time favorite companies, My Mind's Eye. The Be-Loved kit is full of wonderful color combinations and charming patterns.

Also, I want to take this opportunity to let you know that Michelle is having a fabulous....and I mean FABULOUS SALE on her JustRite Christmas images!! So, head on over to Stamper's Dream and check it out.

That about sums everything up.
I hope you're having a blessed week. Our son comes home from college today for two weeks, so we're pretty excited!!
Happy stamping my friends!!!

Pure Innocense

Aren't these little girls just precious? Well, my dear friend Frances sent these to me for my birthday a month ago, and I'm just now getting around to putting them on a card. I colored them right away, but the mojo had left the building and I didn't know what to do. I decided that the sweet and simple style of the images warranted a simple layout so as not to over power the charm. So, I used my Labels 8 Spellbinders die to make the base, colored the images with copics, and ink distressed the edges with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink) The dp is from Anna Griffin's Sierra Collection. I added a couple of buttons (PTI), and some Ice Blue Rhinestones (Kaisercraft) for a little punch, and that's about it. Simple and sweet!!

Here's the card with the image called My Balloon:



Here's the card with the image Flower Girl:


I thought I'd share a quick photo with you too. This was the view out my front bay window yesterday morning. The dairy in the photo is our neighbor. That's really the color too. The sun wasn't fully up yet.

Thinking of You

I just had to make another JustRite card. I so love their images, and the new Decorative 2" Round Wide Borders fit beautifully with the Ornare Pierced design I wanted to use. The circle border and sentiment (Just a Note 1 5/8" Centers and Borders) are stamped with Vintage Sepia (Versafine) onto Desert Coral Light (Prismatics). I added a Suede Brown Dark Fancy Tags diecut (Spellbinders) behind the Circle medallion, and a border punched on both sides of a 1 1/8" strip of cardstock. I also added some Kaisercraft Chocolate Pearls, some Rose Silk Ribbon, and some Martha Stewart punched butterflies. The edges are all ink distressed with Antique Linen.

The weekend is coming fast. Woo-Hoo!! I hope to get all my Christmas gifts wrapped and cards addressed. Hope your week is going well and that you have a nice restful weekend!!

Happy Stamping!!

A Mojo sketch and California Snow

I love sketch challenges to help get the mojo flowing. I already had this darling Henry Mouse Whiff of Joy image, colored and cut out with a Spellbinder's Octagon Nestabilites die, but didn't know where to go with it layout wise until I saw Monday's MOJO sketch today. It just clicked...add a couple of Spellbinders snowflakes from their Create a Flake sets and it works!! I then added an icicle border to the bottom with a Martha Stewart Border Punch, a sentiment from one of Waltzingmouse's Gingerbread sets called Half Baked Gingerbread Joy, and there ya have it.

I also added some liquid applique to the marshmallows, some glitter with my Quickie Glue Pen and Ultrafine Transparent Glitter, and a PTI ribbon bow. The image was watercolored with my Tombows. Michelle is out of this particulare Henry Mouse image, but she has 4 other darling images to choose from.

That's it for my card, but I'd like to share a photo with you of our "California Snow". This is as close to snow as we usually get. It's actually snowed twice here in the 20+ years that I've lived here, but this type of "snow" (giggle) is not uncommon in the winter months......This is as close to a "White Christmas" as I'll get this year more than likely.

You're Too Kind

So did ya'll enjoy your weekend? I sure did! I spent Saturday shopping with a friend of mine, and ended it with watching the movie Blindsided. Talk about a fabulous movie!! LOVED it. Especially knowing it's a true story.

I really enjoyed stamping today too. My friend Laurie has made some gorgeous, gorgeous cards embossing black onto dark gray and black. I love this charming image from Verve's Thankful Accents set and thought it would work well embossed on PTI's Smokey Shadow cardstock. The circle frame was stamped with Cranberry Adirondack Dye Ink onto white cs. I added the word "Thanks" (Celebration of Thanks - Verve), and a flag with a sentiment from the Verve set Thankful Hearts. I added a bit of bling with some Rhinestones and pearls, and some decorated edges with some Martha Stewart border punches.

That about sums it up. Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy Stamping my friends!!

Labels 8 box tutorial for JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream

I fell in love with the Top Note box the first time I saw the tutorial by Angie Tieman on SCS. You can find it HERE. Isn't it adorable? Well, I don't own the SU! Top Note die, so I modified the idea a bit to fit with the Spellbinders Labels 8 die. It's so easy, and only requires two pieces of cardstock: 4 1/2" x 6", and 3" x 4 1/2" and a piece of ribbon about 18" long.

First let me show you the finished product.

The medallion was made with a JustRite image from one of the newest released sets called Decorative 2" Round Wide Borders, and the center image from an older set called A Merry Little Christmas Borders and Centers 1 5/8". Isn't that intricate border gorgeous? I stamped it with Versamark onto Desert Coral Dark (Prismatics), and embossed it with Ivory ep. The Rhinestones are from Kaisercraft, and the sparkle was added with a Quickie Glue Pen and Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. I also added some decoration behind the medallion with one of Spellbinder's Fancy Tags. The decorative Paper I used is by My Mind's Eye and is called Be Loved.
One of my favorite things about JustRite images is that you can mix and match so many of their sets. That means there are endless possibilities!!

Let me show you how easy this is to make. Here are the cardstock pieces cut and scored: (you can click on the photos for a closer look)



Here's the inside after assembly: First, I punched the slots for the ribbon with my SU! Slot punch. I then used Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to assemble because I'm terrible at lining up the scored Label 8 piece with the box half. The glue remains wet long enough to move it around until the fit is perfect. Glue it to the bottom half and the 1/2" scored side.

Candy companies are getting so creative with their packaging now days. This little snickers bar fit perfectly inside. I plan on giving this to my niece with some cash underneath it for Christmas. What little kid doesn't like money with a sweet little treat?

Finally, here's a side view of the box:
This is the final day of JustRite week for Stamper's Dream. I hope you've enjoyed the projects the design team has shared with you. Check out with these gals have come up with for today:
Michelle, Amy, Cammie.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you have the most fabulous weekend!
Happy Stamping!

Framed by JustRite


It's JustRite week at Stamper's Dream, and the Dream Team has some wonderful projects to share with all of you. I LOVE the new 2" Square and Circular Frames JustRite recently released. They're gorgeous and work well together and with previously released images also.

For this card, I used one of the new 2" Decorative Frames. I stamped it with Vintage Sepia (Versafine) onto Birchtone Light (Prismatics). I really liked how Laurie framed an image found Here, so I popped my frame up and Stamped the sentiment "Thank You" (from the set Just a Note 1 5/8" Borders and Centers) with Onyx Black (Versafine), on the bottom layer. I blinged up the frame a bit with Zva Creative Mini-Rhinestones and Pearls. They're so tiny and sweet!! ;o) The other pearls on the card are by Kaisercraft.

The punched frame was made with Martha Stewart Punches. I just took a 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Birchtone Medium cs, punched the four corners with the corner punch, then lined up the border punch in the center. The lattice punch and side scallops are also Martha Stewart, and the large scallops are EK Success.

The dreamy paper is from two of My Mind's Eye's newest releasescalled Life's Stories Collections. I LOVE these papers!!

I made my own brads with Chatterboxes Easy Brad Maker Kit. Stamper's Dream is sold out of the kit, but it has some refills left.
Oh, I almost forgot, the plum colored lattice and scallops were made with Wizard Dark Prismatics.

Whew...that's a lot of info for one little card. Thanks for hangin' in there with me. Now, you won't want to miss the other Dream Team projects, so I'm including the schedule:

Challenge Party at Verve!

Hello everyone!! I so hope all my American friends had a fabulous Thanksgiving yesterday. I had an absolute wonderful day with my two kids and husband. Good food and lots of games. My son's home from college for a few days, so we plan on squeezing as much fun in as we can.

Laurie and I provided a sketch challenge for this hour. As always, sketches are open to your own interpretation. They're meant to inspire. I added a circle to the top of mine using the new sets Heartfelt Thanks and Heartfelt Accents. The Circle frame is embossed with Vanilla Cream (CHF), and the heart with gold ep. I added some Kaisercraft Rhinesones, embossed with rectangle panel with a SU! embossing folder, and punched the corners with a Fiskars Corner punch. The side border is Martha Stewart.

Urban Tapestry


I was so excited when Michelle (Stamper's Dream) decided to carry some of Tim Holtz's images from his Stamper's Anonymous line. I LOVE these images, and they're so easy to work with. The Urban Tapestry set that I used has 5 images, and I used each one on this card with a different Brilliance Pearlescent Dew Drop Color. They have a subtle sparkle, which added to the rustic Kraft and Blush Red Dark Prismatics, gives this card a country elegance. Well, at least I think it does.

After stamping my main panel, I ink distressed the edges with Cranberry Adirondack Dye Ink, Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress), added the Martha Stewart punched border as a fence, and the Fiskars border along the bottom.

Here are the Brilliance Pearlescent Dew Drop colors I used for the bird scene:
Bird: Crimson
Flowers: Poppy
Create Script: Beige
Speckle: Rust
Corner: Olive

Now, it just so happens that I was talking to Laurie today, and she was working with this same stamping line: Stamper's Anonymous (Tim Holtz). But she was using a different set. To see what she did with these wonderful images, stop by her blog Just Give Me Stamps.

Thanks for dropping in today.
I hope all my American friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow.
I'll have some more projects to share with you on Friday.
Happy Stamping!


Supplies:
Stamps: Urban Tapestry (Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous)

Christmas Kisses

There's a project parade going on over at the Verve Blog, and today is my day to share a project under $10. This one totaled $6.67.

eta: I've been asked about the Petal Pot. It's made of Blank Board, and you can find it at Emma's Paperie HERE.

I wanted to try something a little different and use black as my base and make it clean and simple. I rarely use black or go the CAS route. But I like how this turned out. I used the sentiments "Merry Christmas" and "from our house to yours" from the Verve set Oh Christmas Tree. And the flake from the set Frosty Flakes was stamped with White Craft ink onto black cardstock. The cardstock is all Papertrey. For the finishing touches, I embossed the card and petal pot panels, and added some rhinestones and decorative borders with punches.

Here's a close up of the Petal Pot:
Here's a close up of the card:

So, now it's your turn! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your homemade goodies for the upcoming giving season! Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not use 'em? You could even win a $30 gift certificate to the Verve Store. So, head on over to the Verve blog to see how you could win.


Thank you so much for dropping by!!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

You can't catch me!!!

I think gingerbread men are just super adorable, and I have a SIL who collects them. So when I saw Claire's sweet Gingerbread sets, I knew I had to own them!! The set I used is called Half Baked Gingerbread Joy (Waltzingmouse Stamps), and it's like playing paperdolls stamper style. You can dress these guys in different outfits, and even make gingerbread girls. So, so cute!! Since my SIL has four boys, I made 4 little magnets too, dressing each a different way. But I'll get to that in a bit.

It's the 20th, and that means it's time for another DD/DDA Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers. Here are the requirements set up by sweety, Kim Teasdale:

The Challenge: Create a project for any holiday of your choice - even obscure ones

Required Element: Your ornament must hang from something or have a loop of ribbon so that it can hang (ie: from a christmas tree, door, etc)

Restricted Element: None

Keyword: DCHOHO1109 (Dirty Challenge Hanging Out the Holidays with Ornaments 11 09...with a slight Christmas infusion! lol - HOHO...get it? )

I made my ornament with largest Spellbinders' Labels 6 Nestabilities die. There are 3 of them just folded in half and attached together with that darling little gingerbread guy in the center. I glued two of him back to back, so the ornament looks the same when it spins. I used the image that looks like a sheet portion to the bed for a banner at the top, and added the year by hand. Check out the ornaments Claire made with the Season of Love tags!! How CUTE!! That's where I got the idea to fold the Labels 6 shape.

I stamped this little guy with Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress) onto Kraft cs (Prism). His vest was stamped with Cranberry (Adirondack Dye Ink), and the rest of the pieces were stamped with Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress). I then colored in the ric-rac with my White gel Souffle pen. The button is PTI, and he's hanging with Ivory Burlap String.

Click HERE to see this months DD/DDA gallery of ornaments. We'd love it if you added some of your stamped ornaments. Remember to include the keyword: DCHOHO1109
so we can find it.

Now for the magnets:
Aren't these little guys fun?!?!? They're stamped the same as my ornament guy, but I added Glossy Accents to them. Honestly, if I had time to do them all over, I would just add a coat of Clear embossing powder to them instead. I knew better too. The glossy accents made the color run a bit. But I do like the sturdiness of them. I cut each of them out and adhered them to some balsa wood. It cuts like butter and gives the shape support. I got the thinnest you can get at Michaels. Then I just added some magnets to the back. So easy.

That's it for today.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Stamps: Half Baked Gingerbread Joy (Waltzingmouse)
Paper: Kraft (Prism), The Paper Loft
Ink: Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain, Pine Needles, Aged Mahogany (Ranger Distress), Cranberry (Adirondack Dye Ink)
Accessories: Labels 6 (Spellbinders), Balsa Wood, Natural Burlap String, Magnests, Glossy Accents, White Gel Pen (Souffle), Button (PTI)
