Star Bright

Lily Pad Cards     Lucy's Lovely Lines Challenge-Sketch
Splendiferous Creations     Bloggers Challenge-Summertime

I stayed spot on to the sketch because when I saw it this set of CTMH stamps came right to my mind. I've had them for a couple of years, but they are so versatile, there are even a few more designs in the set and a couple of sentiments + this one. The only thing is I masked and stamped the words in a line instead of on top of one another.
For the Bloggers Challenge I chose to stay with the red, white, and blue summertime color scheme that always brings to my mind picnics, beach parties, and theme park visits. 
Everyone around here is trying to finish up vacations because school will be starting in a few weeks. Kids now days don't know how lucky they are to have air conditioned schools.  
Hope your summers have been fun.

Bloomin' Splendid

Our Creative Corner     All The B's!-Black, Bling, Buttons, and Bows

Love Enclosed

CAS-ual Fridays     CFC11-Here's The Rub-CAS with a Rub-On
Less Is More     LIM Week 25-Recipe-Button or Ribbon

Two challenges with clean and simple requirements. Usually, CAS means lots of white space, but since the only rub-ons I could put my hands on in my stash were white I decided to reverse the concept. A minimalist approach but very striking. 

Supplies: SU Basic Black card stock, CTMH rub-ons, SU Bakers Twine, and a white button from who knows where.

Beaded Ornaments

   Bah! Humbug!     Chalenge 29...Beads...
Jingle Belles     JB30-Oh Hole-y Night!

I've made an aperture card today using SU's Ornament Punch and the stamp set that goes with it Delightful Decorations. These ornaments just begged for some tiny micro beads, so after heat embossing them with silver and gold embossing powder I used my glue pen and a catcher tray to apply the beads. Be aware that if you are like me this is kind of like a glitter experience, I had beads every where. They are kind of like jumping beans, they have a life of their own ;-)
American Crafts Christmas Textured Foil paper was the perfect back drop for these ornaments, and one of my favorite corner punches. 
My photos will be off for a few days because I broke my right photo bulb and have some coming in the mail. 
Come join in the fun at these two Christmas challenges and you'll see you Christmas card stash rising each week.

Texas Box






Try It On Tuesday     Alter Something to make a Gift

A good Tuesday morning to everyone. Today is my Guest Spot on Try It On Tuesday.  First, I want to say Thank You to the team at Try It On Tuesday and especially to Angela. She has coordinated with me this week and made this Guest Spot experience go very smoothly.  They have created a fun schedule of different challenges each week to keep things fresh and fun.
The Craft Barn is generously sponsoring the challenge again this week with a £15 voucher to the winner.
                                    
The Craft Barn has a blog and they are having a challenge this week that would coordinate with this challenge perfectly. So while you are deciding what to enter this week at Try It On Tuesday be sure to hop over to The Craft Barn and check things out there also.
This week the challenge is to Alter Something into a Gift. As you can see above I have created a Welcome To Texas Box. We've got a lot of new people moving into our state and very recently we've had some new neighbors move here from Pennsylvania, so this challenge came at a very timely moment.
I've had this set of paper-mache star boxes for quite some time thinking of something Christmas, but since we're the Lone Star State what could be more perfect.
Sorry about all the pictures, but I put something different on each panel around the star. I used a paper pack from Provo Craft that I've had for a couple of years. I'm very stingy using the papers because I like them so much. I wish I had bought 2 packs now, I don't think they make it anymore. I have to mention SU Naturals White card stock, I'm in love with that right now.  The stamps I used are a variety, Stampabilities, Deadbeat Designs, CTMH, Texana Designs, because I like to spread the love around. There are so many fantastic stamp companies and products out there and it's one of my favorite things to do to mix and match. I used 4 inks, Ranger Archival Jet Black, Sepia, and SU Night of Navy and Riding Hood Red. My trusty Black Sharpie marker, some free Google images, a piece of Styrofoam, some hemp twine, a fee chop stick, lots of glue, and the various Texas goodies to fill the inside of the box.
We all need gifts from time to time so use the inspiration from the great Design Team at Try It On Tuesday to put a little something of yourself into a nice present for someone special in your life, and don't forget you could win some goodies to beef up your crafting stash at the same time.

Skull Bookmark

Forever Night Challenges     MDAM Challenge #1-Skull-tastic
DYSU Challenge Blog     SYSUC#29-Wings

Tonight I'm entering 2 challenges that are new to me. The first one is Forever Night Challenges and this is their first challenge. Sharon from Sharons Showcase has led me down this dark, creepy tunnel and with Halloween on the horizon what a better place to get in the mood for some creepy good fun.
The second challenge, Shar from Ill Tempered Ink entered this challenge and so after I clicked on the link she gave I thought this would be a fun place to play also.
These 2 Sharon's are a couple of fun gals and very talented. I don't think I will go wrong following them down any garden path.
Distress Inks, a flourish stamp, and a free Google image, and my own handwriting with some black lace and gold cording give you a Skull-tastic bookmark. I almost stamped Make A Wish on here, but I thought that might be to creepy.

Try It On Tuesday     Steampunk

Shutting things down this evening I leave you with an altered 6 X 6 canvas in a Steampunk theme.
I finally got to use my Cuttlebug die that cuts puzzle pieces. I glued some BoBunny paper and a free Google image to Grungeboard and ran it through, Viola, a puzzle, then I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I used my new Grommet Tags die, with some Kraft Glassine paper. The alphabet and numbers are still off one stamping of Tim's lg. alphabet stamp, also some of his gears, and some that I got at the Rubber Stamp show Sat. Of course, you recognize a couple of Tim's masks on the canvas sprayed with the sprays I made with Perfect Pearls and Distress Re-Inkers. I created the sentiment on the tag on the computer with an Edwardian Script font, very Steampunk, you know. Then it's just a matter of placement and gluing  and some people actually wait for all the glue to dry before they take the photo, but a little of my glue is still showing.
Don't forget to check out Mr. Holtz's web site for this and all his amazing techniques and over at Try It On Tuesday The Craft Barn is sponsoring again and they've got lots of neat supplies to accomplish some of those techniques.
The shower and my bed are calling my name very loudly tonight, so I bid you a good night.

Back Door/Front Door

ATC Challenge Blog     6th Challenge-Windows or Doors or Anything Goes

I got to go to the Rubber Stamp Show in Grapevine, TX last Saturday. I discovered a stamp company that I was not familiar with, Local King Rubber Stamp, they are from Canada. Lisa Yang, I believe is the owner and main designer plus she was demonstrating. I used the technique she demo'd. 
Color with different colors of markers in different places on your stamp, huff, and then stamp. For added interest, she used a very dry ink pad and stamped script across the whole thing. I just love the look this creates. You'll probably being seeing quite a bit of this technique here in the next few weeks, and of course, I bought quite a few of her stamps.

Graduate

Splendiferous Creations     Bloggers Challenge Sketch

Our Cousins daughter-in-law picked up her BS last weekend. Family met up for the ceremony and an evening out. I missed it because of preparing to bring my Mom home, but better late than never and I bet she'll like what's inside ;-)
Lisa's sketch worked perfect with this stamp set and this paper from a DCWV Glitter Stack just begged me to use this SU silver glass glitter for a fabulous sparkling effect.

Beat The Heat

Order of the Opus Gluei     Challenge #109-Beat The Heat
Tuesday Morning Sketches     TMS#103-Sketch by: Dawn Barghorn

Many of us are still experiencing record high temperatures all over the U.S. So the Poo-bahs at Opus are right on track with their challenge.
I stamped the little bunny on Pool Party card stock with black ink and colored him with my PrismaColor pencils and blended with Sansodor Low Odor Solvent. I couldn't resist stamping some bubbles on the background very lightly. This was the perfect stand alone image for the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. 
Speaking of Tuesday Morning Sketches--I bet you've heard the clapping--the team over there picked my Sunny Day card with the detachable bookmark for 1st place last Tuesday. I got a cool blinkie badge for my side bar and Melissa says I get a guest spot, plus I won 5 digis from Doodle Pantry, how cool is that! Those are some of my favorite digis, not to mention Laurie the owner and designer is one of the most generous ladies I've ever encountered.
Stay hydrated and cool wherever you are.

Oval Floral



Good Tuesday Morning--
There's a new challenge out here in blog land for all you guys and gals who love a good challenge.
Shar at Rogue Redhead Designs has created the RRD Rebel Challenge--for the first challenge she's given us the prompt--Bold-Colored Vintage--
I've chosen to interpret these colors as Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade, and Pool Party all SU colors. The inks I've used are SU also, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, and Sahara Sand. 
Once I had the colors I needed to come up with a base and when I saw Dawn's video over on YouTube at dostamping (I have not learned how to leave a link to that, so hope you can find it) where she created the cutest owl card using this gate fold with the SU Oval Scallop Frame die I knew this was it. Since you've already seen the picture you know what stamp set immediately came to mind, Yes, the Rogue Redhead Designs Floriculture set. For some reason every time after I stamp this floral stamp the words bling me start whispering. So after I stamped the flowers with Lucky Limeade and again with Calypso Coral, cut out the flowers, did a little sponging on the edges and popped them up with dimensionals I added some Rock Candy stickles to the centers. The scallop looked a little naked so I tinted the little pearls with the Pool Party marker and did some faux stitching with the Melon Mambo marker.
When you mount the top of the scallop to the top of the gate and the bottom of the oval to the bottom of the gate you've created a latch effect. 
I never would have personally chosen these colors to put together, but I have to say this created a very dramatic card. 
Now, I'm inviting you to come over to Rogue Redhead Designs and participate in this new RRD Rebel Challenge: Bold-Colored Vintage. You've still got time to jump in, the challenge doesn't end until Aug. 8 and then the winner will be announced on Aug.10th. We all like prizes and Shar has one waiting for one lucky winner.

Tee Pee Reindeer

 Bah! Humbug!     Challenge 28...Shapes
Jingle Belles     JB29-Reindeer Games


I'm so glad I was able to combine these 2 Christmas challenges.
This is called a Tee Pee card, hence the shape for Bah! Humbug! I have been seeing some of these popping up around blogland. I found an instructional video on the YouTube channel thenorsugirl. I tried a couple of ways to make this a link, but didn't work. Hope you can find it on YouTube if you are interested by the info above.
The first picture is the front, then you go around to the right in the next pictures. In the 3rd picture you can see the little velcro closure peeping. This allows the card to be opened up so you can write on the inside and it will also fold flat so that it can be mailed.



 I used some of my favorite Christmas paper that I've had for 2 years now, but this black, red, and cream WOW's me every time I use it.

 Of course, you recognize the frolicking reindeer for the Jingle Belles challenge ;-)
This was a fun little puzzle and not that difficult with the good YouTube instructional.
Supplies: Papers: Magic of the Season-Hobby Lobby, Stamps: SU-Cute & Curly, Hampton Art-Sentiments, CTMH-D1283 Say It in Style, The Paper Studio-Snowflakes, Ink: SU-Riding Hood Red, Black Sharpie Marker, VersaMark, SU-Curly Label Punch, SU dimensionals.

I'm really having fun participating in the Less Is More Challenges. It really gives your stamps and inks a chance to shine. 
I had been wanting this stamp set for a long time and just got it last week, so what perfect timing to get it inked up. I also have not been using Poppy Parade much, so thank you Paper Players and Less Is More for inspiring me to get busy using what I've got on these shelves.
A quick little announcement--I think you can hear the clapping--I got chosen for a guest spot over at Try It On Tuesday, I won with my Shades of Blue card. They will be letting me know the date for my guesting, so be sure to check back.

Money-Money


Gingersnap Creations     GC108: color challenge-The Color of Money
Card Patterns     Sketch 124

I believe this challenge is the last of the June Shopping theme at Gingersnap Creations. I keep saying I'm not a musical person, but a lot of these challenges bring songs to my mind and one of my favorite groups is Abba. They have a song called Money Money. Be careful once you hear the tune it's hard to get it out of your mind, very catchy. 
I had to show the inside of the card so you would know why the wooden nickels were on there. 
Free Google images and the birthday stamp is one of my new SU stamps. 
If you haven't played at Card Patterns you must hop over there and give their sketch challenges a try. I found them in 2009 and I don't think they have ever duplicated a sketch and to top it off they're a great bunch of people. They always have neat interviews with the Guest Designer of the week. It's fun to read about how other people got started in crafting and blogging.

Sunny Day

Gingersnap Creations     GCSP08: Recipe-3 Words, 3 Papers, 3 Buttons
City Crafter Challenge Blog     CCCB#65-Let The Sunshine In
Shopping Our Stash     SOS#8: Out With The Old or In With The New
Tuesday Morning Sketches     TMS#102-Create A Card with a Detachable Bookmark
                                                                                     
A totally appropriate card for today--Hot--Hot--and SUNNY!! 103 degrees.
Sometimes I complain that the 21st Century is not all it's cracked up to be, but you won't find me complaining about the invention of air conditioning.
Each day brings new challenges with Mom home from the nursing home, but fortunately she and I work together very well, so we are persevering.
For the Shopping Our Stash challenge we are supposed to tell what we used from our stash--as you see above we could use old or new, so I chose to use some CTMH Goldrush embossing powder and even though it is a couple of years old it is still embossing beautifully. The striped paper on the front is also an old CTMH paper. Three pretty new mini stamps: Inkadinkado, Studio112, MSE! This was also the first time I have used the perforater tool I got last year. The edge where you pull the bookmark off was kind of raggedy so I ruffed up the other edges so everything would kind of blend. (Creative covering up of mistakes)
For the Gingersnap challenge my 3 words are on the bookmark, my 3 papers are polka dot, stripe, and text on the inside panel, I also stamped and embossed the sun on the text paper, and I spread my 3 buttons out on the front for a little bit of pop.  I couldn't resist putting the little smiley face kite on with the sentiment. 
A lot of people are on vacation now, so wherever you are and whatever you are doing--Hope you're having a Happy Day!

White On White

Card Patterns     Sketch 123
Our Creative Corner     It's A White Party!

Today was a test. My Mom's first full day home from the nursing home. We've done pretty good. A few things have been tweaked and we may need to tweak a couple of more, I have gotten 2 cards made and posted. We'll be having some PT, OT, and Nurse people in 3 days a week, but I think I will still be able to get into my studio while they are working with Mom. The bathroom remodel is a huge success, YAY, for that. You always hope your theories will work in real time and not just on paper. 
I think you still have a day or two to hop over and participate at these challenges. If I can do it, you can do it.
I used 4 different white papers, 2 of which were already embossed. I finally got to use some of the white crinoline that I got from The Funkie Junkie's Etsy shop. I cut 4 layers of the 3rd and 4th smallest flowers on the Tattered Florals die, kind of scrunched them up and attached with the white button brad. 
Simplicity has been the key word around here today.

Supplies: 5 1/4" square card, Papers: SU-Confetti White, Shimmery White, plain white card stock unknown, Making Memories-Embossed Elegance, Stamp: SU-Define You Life, Ink: CTMH-Grey Flannel, Tim Holtz Alterations die-Tattered Florals, The Paper Studio Spare Parts-white button brad, Fiskars corner rounder, ribbon-Offray, glue dots.

Bug Legs Birthday

Less Is More     Week 23-One Layer-Something With Legs

Last week when I entered the Less Is More challenge I didn't leave enough white space. The gals were very nice and said how much they liked my card, but---
I think I got it right this week. I just stamped on the card blank and left lots of white space, colored the bug with markers and added just a touch of grass. 
I like this challenge because it reminds us that a very nice card can be made with simple stamping skills and minimal supplies.

Supplies: White Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" Halcraft, Stamps: SU-Love Bug, So Happy for You, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, SU markers.

Merry Mousie

Bah! Humbug!     Challenge 27...Meeces
Jingle Belles     JB28-Holiday Leftovers

I didn't think I'd get a card made for these two challenges, but today was a day on the phone and waiting for an inspector to approve the bathroom remodel. 
Plenty of time to cut and paste. Smilin' Stef from Ingenious Inkling inspired me with her bargello work and she even gave us a link to her great tutorial on the technique. I always say I'm not a puzzle person and this was kind of like a puzzle. Once, I had chosen my papers however and followed Stef's tutorial it all fell right into place. I don't think my left end is exactly right, but I like the way the strip of Ho's are in a line. 
I found these cute mice on free Google images, printed them on card stock, cut them out, popped them up, added the bows with glue dots, popped up the sentiment and I've got a pretty cute Christmas card.
All those strips of paper are scraps from my K&Co Let It Snow paper pack when I made candy bar gift card holders for family Christmas presents last year. I already have my idea for this year's presents and it's hard to believe I need to start working on them in the next few weeks. 25 of something you don't want to wait til the last minute ;-)

Steampunk Journey

Studio L3     GM#14-Tim's March 2008 Technique Challenge
Gingersnap Creations     GC109: Chestnut Theme Challenge-On The Road (Steampunk)

Linda from Studio L3 picked another super challenge this week. Tim's March 2008 Technique Challenge teaches us how to mix up scrumptious sprays with distress inks and perfect pearls. Stamping with the white paint dabber creates a ghosting resist effect. Pretty cool. 
I got the bottom right corner of the tag to dark, well, you know how it is trying out a new technique to you, live and learn. That being said the quote that I stamped on top of the image is from Leonardo da Vinci--For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with you eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.
Hence, the flying dirigible for On The Road challenge at Gingersnap Creations. Well, I'm going to fly over the road this week.  The month of July we're traveling with a Steampunk Theme. 

Supplies: Black Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: SU-brushed silver, Ranger Manilla card stock, Marco's Paper-copper card stock, Stamps: Scrolls Work Rubber Stamps, Artful Inkables-Steampunk Sarah, Ink: Distress Inks-broken china, walnut stain, spiced marmalade, fired brick, Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Adirondack Paint Dabber-Snow Cap, Perfect Pearls-Heirloom Gold, Perfect Copper, Forever Red, Blue Patina, Craf-T Products Metallic Rub-Ons, Elmer's Copper Leafing Pen, Spellbinders Nestabilities-Labels Twenty-One, Cuttlebug embossing folder-Clockworks, SU-ticket punch, silver metallic dots painted copper, Tim Holtz idea-ology game spinners, The Paper Studio-tiny heart brad, SU dimensionals.

Shades of Blue

Less Is More     Week 22-Colour-Shades of Blue
Try Stampin' on Tuesday     Challenge #22-Sketch
Tuesday Taggers    Card Week-Flower Power 

A sketch and a color scheme come together. Usually with less is more, a lot of white space is the norm. I have chosen the pattern papers  and a little bit of stamping with a border and flower punch. The sentiment is very subtle to keep things crisp and clean.
I have to mention that when playing over at Tuesday Taggers they Craft Barn as a regular sponsor with some wonderful prizes.

Supplies: White card blank 4" X 5 1/2" The Paper Studio, Papers: SU-Blueberry Crisp Designer Series Paper, Stamps: Am. Crafts-Bouquet, SU-Whimsical Words, Ink: SU-Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, Scallop Trim border punch, Fancy Flower Punch, SU dimensionals.

Alcohol Pallette

Card Patterns     Sketch 122
As you can see I still have my alcohol inks out. I have to say in playing with them the last few days I have been more satisfied with the results than I was when I got them last year.
On this background I used Meadow, Stonewashed, Rust, Silver Mixative, and Blending Solution. 
When I saw this sketch at Card Patterns the flourish caught my eye. I've been finding odd bits and pieces on the back of my work space and the heart scroll grunge piece was among them. Ah-Hah, a card idea is born.
I used Vintage Photo distress embossing powder and a black Sharpie to age the scroll piece and running with the rusty coppery feel in the background I added the copper dry embossed piece to the bottom and some of my favorite copper ribbon. Of course, this stamp from Tim Holtz Collection seemed a great fit for the stamped element.

Book of Hearts

 Passionately Artistic     Weekly Linking Party


  This is my first attempt at making a Chunky Book from scratch. I'm so passionate about it, it's going in the mail this afternoon to Vamp Stamp News in hopes of being published in the Sept 2011 VSN Books Challenge.
For the base of the book I used chip board and the Album Cover & Page Sizzix die.
The front and back cover are acetate. I printed the title on the acetate with the computer and then cut out the shape and stamped the hearts on with black permanent ink. A small heart peel-off on the front and mirror image peel-offs on the back cover.
Lots of papers from my stash, stamps,digi stamps and free Google image clip art were used to
 decorate the chip board pages. After that was done the pages seemed a little plain so I decided to doodle around the edges to frame things in and give it a little character.
I finished the edges of the book off with the silver Sharpie Paint Pen, and also edged the acetate covers with the same pen.





















Three 1 1/2" binder rings hold it all together and then I raided my ribbon stash and pulled a bunch of colors that are used in the book, cut 6" lengths and knotted them on the binder rings.
 This was a fun project to work on. I'm hoping to try out some wax techniques on my next attempt. Stay tuned--you never know what project might pop up on my blog.
