Trick or Treat

Supplies: Stamps: Studio G  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: gumball green, white, black, patterned paper?  Accessories: Martha Stewart web medallion, copic markers, Martha Stewart spider web border punch, gumball green ribbon, crystal effects

Hi Stampers!  I checked my email this morning and saw the SCS sketch challenge, and loved the sketch!  It is a great sketch to use patterned paper, fun label dies, and more.  I am definitely going to use this sketch again!  With Halloween around the corner I dug out my Halloween stamps to find an image that would fit in the Martha Stewart spider web medallion.  I found one, and thought it would be fun to add the spider web border as well.  Thanks for stopping by!

New to Me

Supplies: Stamps: SU Patterned Pines  Paper: SU crumb cake and Neenah white  Ink: Versamark  Accessories: SU embossing folder, detail white embossing powder, Spellbinders circle and scallop circle die cuts, gingham ribbon, dimensionals
Hi Stampers!  It is time for another featured stamper challenge on SCS!  This week's featured stamper is crafty Julia.  I chose this card to CASE from her gallery.  I chose to use an embossing folder instead of using patterned paper, I embossed my trees, and I changed the color scheme. 

This was a fun card to make.  I just got this stamp set at a rummage sale this weekend, and I got to use my new embossing folder.  I love the filigree look to this folder! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi There!

Supplies: Stamps: Elzybelle, Papertrey mixed messages  Paper: Neenah white, SU crumb cake, Amuse wasabi pinstripe Ink: Memento tuxedo black, craft white ink  Accessories: waterbrush, banner punch, SU clip, piercer, wink of stella white glitter pen, copic markers
What happens when the DVR is recording two shows and I can't watch TV, the husband is gone, and I don't have any prep work for tomorrow??  I get to make a card!  This card is for the CAS challenge on SCS, it is to use piercing.  I inked up my image, but did not ink the bee "trail" and pierced it instead.  I added grass with my copic markers.  To color the focal image, I used a waterbrush with white craft ink and painted the white on the chick and the bee.  As I was doing so I remembered I didn't use I was REALLY careful not to touch the stamped image.  Then I used my copic markers to color in the image so the colors popped against the kraft paper.  I added some glitter to the bee wings using the white wink of stella marker.  I stamped the sentiment and punched it out using a banner punch, and attached it with a clip from SU.
That's all for today, thanks for stopping by!

Oh My It Has Been Way Too Long

Supplies: Stamps: Petite Pairs Paper: cherry cobbler and crumb cake  Ink: old olive, cherry cobbler, crumb cake, soft suede  Accessories: Stampin Up ribbon, ribbon slide, Cuttlebug embossing folder, stamp a ma jig, sponges
Hello Stampers!  As I went to post this and saw that my last card was an Easter card...I wondered where the time went.  Stamping has been on the backburner too long for me.  It is too bad stamping shopping doesn't end up on the backburner rather than the actual stamping! LOL!  There always seems to be time for that! :)  Anywho, I was determined to make a card.  Sundays I always enjoyed the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  So that is where I headed.  I found a card to CASE and had a plan.  It was nice to get inky again.  I wasn't planning on inking up the embossed image, but I like the pop of color it adds to the card.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hippity Hoppity Easter's On It's Way

Supplies: Stamps: Eggstra Spectacular  Paper: kraft and white  Ink: Versamark  Accessories: Darice egg embossing folder, Sizzix embossing folder, Prickly Pear die cut, Silhouette pinking circle cut file, detail white embossing powder, dimensionals, Stampin Up ribbon, pink and blue 3 mm pom poms.

I adore this little bunny, and I am having fun making some CAS cards with it.  I wanted a more dainty embossing folder for the pink one, and thought the Easter egg folder would be great for the blue one.  I wasn't sure the large eggs would work with the small focal image, but I think that it looks sweet.  Thanks for stopping by!


Hoppy Easter

Supplies: Stamps: Eggstra Spectacular Paper: Neenah white, pear pizzazz  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Accessories: pear pizzazz ribbon, 3mm pom pom, colored pencils, Adorning Accents edgelits, oval frame embossing folder, stamp a ma jig
I was browsing through the featured stamper's gallery and came upon this cute CAS card.  I loved the simplicity.  I added a touch of color by adding the scalloped edge and ribbon.  I also changed the orientation of the oval frame and made it an almost square card.  I started out with a 4.25x4.25 and then added the edge, so now it is about 4.25x4.5  Now I can't seem to get the "Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail, hippity, hoppity, Easter's on it's way..." out of my head... :)  Happy Stamping!

Hello Stampers!  This weeks CAS challenge on SCS is to use dry embossing.  I die cut the pennant and then embossed the make a wish greeting.  I colored the embossed image with copic markers and added glitter to the star and candle of the focal image.  To complete the card I added a scalloped border trim to the top of the card.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
