MMTPT236, In everything give thanks


Hello - it's been a while since I have posted on my blog. I created this card for the Tuesday Teapotter challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers .  I created the woven background on my card. My sister (Valerie-Raye) was showing me two quilt projects using the woven background and I absolutely loved how they looked. I told her that I would try it out using paper first. I love how it looks and it was very easy to do.  The daffodil image is a digital image off the Internet from a colouring book page. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's - Happy Harmony set.

Thanks for looking,
Hugs..Pat

Peace on Earth

Happy Tuesday everyone. I created this card for this weeks sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers - SC415 and the challenge over at House Mouse and Friends - Let it Snow.  I love this cute House Mouse image - called "Sweet Music". I coloured the image with Tombow Markers. For the snow - I applied Stampin Up's Dazzling Diamonds and for the falling snow I used white liquid applique.   The sentiment was embossed with Teddy Bear Brown embossing powder.

Knitted socks for Jennifer

Here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago.  I have been very lax lately in posting my cards to my block. I made this card for a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I just love this cute House Mouse stamp - called Warmth for Winter.  Image was coloured with Tombow Markers and cut out. Placed over the background I created.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up - from the Bird on a Branch set.

Retire from work - but not from life

I made this card for one of our close friends that is retiring. I love this image from Mo's Digital Stamps, called "Gone Fishing".   Image was coloured with Tombow markers. I saw this saying awhile ago and thought it was perfect for my card. I printed it out on the computer.

Thanks for looking,

Hello! Here is my card for a couple of Splitcoast Stamper challenges. Ways to Use it - Round and Round - to use two or more circles in your project. I have used two Spellbinder circle dies and 10 mini circle brads. I made this for today's Hope You Can Cling Challenge given by Bridget. To be inspired by the poet - Emily Dickinson - Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all. Let your imagination fly with this, it can be anything that inspires you in this stanza about "hope" from Emily's poem, just let us know what it is in your card description - for example, your card could include birds , songs , music , or even something (anything!) "perching" . Or you could make a card without words ! It always leaves so much scope for the person sending the card as it can be used for any occasion!


I used this cute House Mouse image - Two part Harmony. Coloured image with stampin Up and Tombow markers. Masked image and sponged Barely Banana ink around image to give it a glow. Cut out image with circle spellbinder and matted with scalloped spellbinder. I've had a package of individual letter stamps for a long, long time and never used them. Today I made the word "Hope" stamping sentiment with Vintage Sepia Ink. I cased this beautiful card of Bridget's Hope Perches Thanks for the inspiration Bridget.

FUNKY SOCK MONKEY

My cute sock monkey image is from Meljen's Designs . I made the faux red embossed dp on the bottom of my card. I punched out circles and layered them overtop of the striped dp. The scrabble letters were cut out of a 12x12 piece of scrabble dp. I punched out circles from the polka dot dp and layered them over the base polka dot dp. Added diamond stickles. I made the scrabble funky sock monkey wording. the sock monkey image and the word "monkey" are popped up.

Thanks for looking,

The Good Life

Hello... It has been a long time since I have posted to my blog.  I made this card for a few challenges. One is for the Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT204 over at Splitcoast Stampers - It's a cruise to Tee-heat-tea, Teapot Tuesday Style! Make cards with a nautical theme. tropical scenes, and all those refreshing drinks we will have on our cruise! The second one is  for House Mouse & Friends challenge HMF122 "Liquid Refreshments for Hot Summer Days". The cute House Mouse Designs image is called "Keeping Cool". 

My little House Mouse is relaxing on the beach in Tee-heat-tea - soaking up some lovely, warm sunshine. I sponged on the clouds using soft sky ink on the blue cardstock, next I stamped the palm image three times onto blue cardstock, and coloured in the leaves. Added gold liquid pearls to the trees (coconuts).
I stamped the HM image twice and coloured it with Stampin Up and Tombow markers. Cut out the Mouse and part of the umbrella and the sea shell. Popped these up over the base image. Added the diamond stickles. Plus I added the palm tree in the corner. Glued on the sea shells. Sentiment was stamped onto vellum and coloured. Layered over palm tree panel and sewed edges.

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy Stamping and Creating,

Hugs..Pat
