Just Playing

I was playing in my craft room and came up with a card that I thought I would share.

I used STAMPlorations Trendy Leaves, and a sentiment from Typografia; Encouragement.  My coffee cup is from Eat Drink & Be Merry.

Did you know that STAMPlorations has a
STAMPlorations Bi-Monthly Stamp Club


We now have our very own stamp club at STAMPlorations! Every other month (in between our official stamp release months), we put out a 5" by 7" stamp set.

If you love unique images with a sketchy/artsy feel, you'll love the 5" by 7" stamp sets we'll be releasing!

When you sign up for our stamp club, you get a number of perks, including FREE shipping worldwide and an exclusive 4" by 6" stamp set FREE every 3rd shipment!

For more information and to sign up, just head on over here.

I do recommend this - an awesome discount for fabulous stamps!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving here in the USA - so to all my blogging buddies - Happy Turkey Day!  I am currently spending my Thanksgiving with my DH, my son and my family in Washington state.  This is my son's first family Thanksgiving in 18 years!  We are all very excited :)

Meanwhile, I have scheduled this post because I wanted to share my Tag You're It #11 card. It is dedicated to all of YOU -- having you following me and leaving comments is greatly appreciated!

I used PTI's Rosie Posie and Rosie Posie Step 2, along with a sentiment from Hero Arts Good Friends.

Dazzling Divas #53

Okay, I think I got this challenge correct -unlike last week's ;).

I totally love the colors of these jars and have no problem being inspired by this photo!

This week the team is using stencils that are carried in the Add a Little Dazzle Boutique.  I am using the Dreamweaver Stencil, Antler Snowflake

I embossed the craft sheet with the stencil.  Place the stencil ON TOP of the sheet, using an embossing pad,  lay it over the stencil, and a B plate over the pad, run it thorough your Big Shot [or Cuttlebug].  I then used a sanding block to sand off the color.  Very easy and an amazing effect. 
The craft metal sheets I used are Pretty Peacock, Golden Glimmer and Black Diamond. (You can order product HERE and I do get credit]

Now, it's your turn!  Pop on over to Dazzling Diva's #53, check out all the team's samples, and then play along!  Can't wait to see how you are inspired!

Wanted to let you all know about this awesome sale too!  Starts Friday...  yes, you can use my link HERE for any Friday ordering.  [I do get credit :)]

AWDML & The Male Room #24

I have a couple of cards today.  The first one is my A Walk Down Memory Lane blog post.  I have a tutorial over on the blog.

Pop on over to see just what I am doing...... along with the finished card :).

It is also The Male Room Challenge #24; use ribbon in a masculine way.

I used STAMPlorations Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments.  [I adore the bold words in this set.]  I found a piece of rainbow ribbon that I adhered behind my stars.  Works for masculine to me, and gives me another perfect card for my son.

Now, its your turn - come on over to The Male Room and join in with your use of ribbon in a masculine way.  This challenge is good for 2 weeks through December 10th.

STAMPlorations #24 - Sketch

Oh WOW - I adored the sketch for STAMPlorations this time!  This challenge is going for a month +.  With the holidays etc, we know you are all busy and figured a month would give you lots of time to join in.

1 stamp set to a participant who uses a STAMPlorations image - randomly drawn
1 stamp set to a participant - randomly drawn from all entries

So nice and easy, and has all kinds of potential!

Total use of the sketch with some stencil sponging, and perfect words from Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments.  Perfect card for my son :)
