SCS colour challenge - A pretty flower Just for You

Here is a card that I made for Splitcoast Stampers colour challenge #CC294 - Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and neutrals of choice. I used the closest colours that I had on hand (sage shadow, blush blossom and kraft). I cut out the Flower and leaves from Sizzex dies. I scored the Acrylic white card stock in a diamond pattern. The polka dot dp is from Bazzil "rope swing". I cut the kraft and rope swing card stock in a wavy line to make it look like a rolling ground scape. Assembled the card. Attached the ribbon and sewed around edges. I made the shrinky dink tag. Sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps "Everyday jar-gon" set.


Wishing you a speedy recovery - Jess

I'm a little late uploading this card. I made this card for this weeks Teapot Tuesday challenge (#MMTPT117 ) on Splitcoast Stampers for Charlene Merricks (where m & m's gather) step-son Jess. Jess was attacked by a neighbours vicious Dog and now is faced with plastic surgery to repair the damage to his face. I will be sending this off to Jess - wishing him a speedy recovery.

Jess is a big Nascar fan and loves Dale Earnhaardt Sr. I don't have any racing card stamps so I went on line and found this colouring page image. I printed the image twice, cut one out and coloured it with markers. Dry embossed the back side of the image on the front portion of the car to give it some dimension. Matted image with black and red cardstock. I created the checkered background by weaving the black strips into the white panel. Matted the checkered panel with red card stock. Stamped sentiment (from Stampin Up's Bird on a Branch set), matted with black card stock. Sewed all panels. Attached the screw brads.

House Mouse Country Christmas

I just had to share this adorable House Mouse - Country Christmas card I made yesterday.. I haven't been playing with my HM images very much lately... and I absolutely love working with them. I made this for yesterday's technique challenge #TLC 295 over at Splitcoast Stampers - to make it shimmer. Plus Our Creative Corners challenge - to use at least three different embellishments.

I stamped the House Mouse image "Peppermint Pals " with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed. Inked up my acrylic block with Stampin Up Soft Sky ink and stamped over top of image. Stamped snowflakes on the background. Coloured image with Water colour pencil crayons and Tombow Markers. Next I applied Stampin Up Champagne Shimmer Mist with aqua painter.

Teapot challenges

Happy Wednesday everyone.... Here are two cards I made for Mothermark's (Cindy) Teapot Tuesday challenges...
The first one "Frankenstein" will be mailed off to Jacob, a 5 year old who is going through chemo treatments... He will not be able to celebrate Halloween this year - so we are bringing it to him.
Frankenstein and the bat are stickers... I thought the dp was a perfect match for him... Stitched edges. Punched out the yellow moon, sponged edges with more mustard and placed the bat over top.

The second card has been mailed off to a young man (Kyler) who is serving in Afghanistan - he is the son of Lisa Lara.
For the embossed bg, I rubbed Barely Banana and Pumpkin pie on the embossing folder and placed a pieced of white card stock in folder and ran it through the cuttlebug... Stamped the House Mouse image on Kraft card stock and coloured with prisma colour pencil crayons.

Totally Stampalicious challenge --- SNOWFLAKES


It's time for another TOTALLY STAMPALICOUS challenge.... To use at least THREE snow flakes on your card or project.

They have listed the winners from the BLOG HOP so make sure to go over to the TS BLOG to see if you are a winner.

Here is my take on the challenge... I used "Let it Snow - Stella".. I love Stella and all her humorous sentiments.

As you can see I have hundreds of snowflakes on my card... The snowflake dp is from "Me and My Big Ideas" - Noel Pack. The red dp is from "My Minds eye". I used a small snowflake punch and punched out the snowflakes from the snowy dp... I watercoloured Stella using Tombow markers and an aquapainter. Used nestabilities t cut out all the ovals. All edges were sponged with Stampin Up "Riding Hood Red".

I hope you will play along with us.... Make sure to add you card to Mr. Linky at the Totally Stampalicious Blog...

Hugs.. Pat

Today "Totally Stampalicious" is challenging us to make a thankful card or project as our Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner (October 11th).

I used Sketch #SC300 from Splitcoast Stampers - they are celebrating their 300th sketch and have many, many very generous sponsors - and Totally Stampalicious is proud to be one of them. Check out more on the sketch challenge HERE.
