Happy Halloween!!!



Happy Friday everyone and Happy Halloween! :):) I'm so sorry I haven't posted much this week. I'm still not feeling very well (although I'm feeling better than I was) and I wasn't able to get into to the craft room much this week. I do have a card to share with you today though. I inked up another of my new adorable Halloween Magnolia stamps with Memento black ink and stamped her onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored her in with copics and cut her out. Next, I created my card base (which measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4) out of SU's Sage Shadow. I layered Perfect Plum on top of that followed by this gorgeous design paper from Debbie Mumm's fall stack (from JoAnn's). I used my rectangle nesties to cut out the rectangle and scalloped rectangle and I adhered Tilda with dimensionals. The ribbon is from M's dollar bin (all of their Halloween ribbon is on sale for $1, I stocked up for next year LOL :)). The sentiment is also from M's, it's a Studio G $1 clear stamp. I inked it up with my new Versamagic chalk ink (WOW! This stuff is awesome, I LOVE it! :) It works great on clear stamps).

I hope you like it. I'd love to hear what you think. Well, that's it for me today. I should be back to my regular posting schedule so I'll see you back here tomorrow. Have a safe and happy Halloween! :)

Hugs, Christine :)

Happy Haunting



Good morning everyone :) I hope your week is off to a great start. For my card today, I used last week's sketch challenge (SC199) over on Splitcoast for my layout. I stamped my new Halloween Tilda (I LOVE this image, she's so cute :) ) with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored her in with copics. I mounted the image onto SU's Basic Black followed by Elegant Eggplant. I used my Martha Stewart spider web corner punch and adhered the webs to the corners of the image.

My card base, which measures 5x7, is SU's Elegant Eggplant. I layered Basic Black on top of that followed by my designer papers. All of my designer paper is from DCWV's Fall stack. The sentiment and spiders are from two separate clear sets from Inkadinkado. I sponged purple ink (from Memories Direct) around the sentiment panel.

I hope you like it. I'd love to know what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.
Hugs, Christine :)

Whiff of Joy Challenge



Happy Thursday everyone! I'm sorry for the late post, it was a crazy day at work today. My card today is my first submission to the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. This week's challenge was a sketch challenge. I had so much fun with this sketch. I inked up my Willow with Cookies stamp (from WOJ) with Memento black ink, stamped her onto Georgia Pacific cardstock, and colored her with copics. All of my cardstock is from SU (Rose Red and So Saffron). The design paper is from the new yummy Eva collection from Basic Grey. The sentiment is from Funky Kits. I used my SU 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches to punch out the sentiment. I used Fiskar's Threading Water Punch for the scallops along the left side of the image. Finally, for a finishing touch, I added Primas and pearls.

I hope you like it. Don't forget about my blog candy (just leave a comment on this post by Sunday at midnight for a chance to win. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

You're a Class Act



Hello everyone! :) I hope you are all having a great weekend. My card today is my submission for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.

I couldn't wait to ink up my new High Hope stamps (how did it take me so long to find this wonderful stamp company?!?! :):):) ). All stamps are from High Hopes. I first stamped the horse with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I added stickles everywhere! LOL :) Next, I stamped the circus girl onto GP cardstock, colored her in with copics, and cut her out. I again added stickles everywhere :) All cardstock is SU (Brocade Blue and Regal Rose). The design paper is from DCWV's Spring stack. I ran the blue piece behind the image through the cuttlebug using an embossing folder. I used my nestabilities to cut out the horse image and the scalloped rectangle behind it. The sentiment was stamped onto one of my new tag nesties. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and pink rhinestones.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Swashbucklin Day



Hello everyone and happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a great start. My card today is a card I made for my nephew's birthday. We are getting together this afternoon to celebrate and I wanted a cute card to give to him. I had so much fun with this card. The map was my favorite part :)

I first stamped the map, from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I then colored it in with copics. After I colored it in, I tore around the edges, then crinkled it up so it would look like a very old and weathered treasure map. I then inked around the inside of the map with SU's Close to Cocoa ink and then I inked around the torn edges with SU's Chocolate Chip ink. I then wound twine (also from SU) around the map. Next, I stamped the little pirate guy, from The Cat's Pajama's, onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored him in with copics. I then used my nestabilities to cut him out. I layered him onto SU's Real Red followed by Basic Black.

My card base, which measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4, is SU's Chocolate Chip. I layered Basic Black on top of that followed by Real Red. I stamped the skull and cross bones (also from The Cat's Pajama's) on the Real Red cardstock for my background. The sentiment (also from The Cat's Pajamas) was stamped onto a tag made from my new tag nesties. The ribbon is SU's Real Red.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Millie's Reindeer



Good morning everyone and TGIF! :) I have a quick post for you today. My card today uses my new Millie on Reindeer stamp from Spiral Whisper (I love this company, they have the cutest images!) I inked the image with Memento black ink and stamped it onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored it with my copics and used a white gel pen for accents. I then inked around the image using purple ink from Memories Direct. I used all SU cardstock (Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron) and my designer paper is from DCWV's glitter Christmas stack. I sued SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and placed purple rhinestones in each corner. I placed small Primas around the image and placed yellow and purple rhinestones in the centers. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy. I inked it with purple ink from Memories Direct and stamped it onto So Saffron cardstock. I then punched it out using SU's Word Window punch. For some finishing touches, I added ribbon (from Michael's) and large Primas with a glittery Making Memories brad. It's a pretty simple card, but I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.

Thanksgiving Wishes






Good afternoon everyone,

Well, sadly, today is the last day of my vacation and it's back to work tomorrow. I've had a really nice time off, but I'm sad to see it end.

I was in a Thanksgiving mood today so I went kinda crazy with my new Storage Units Ink and More (SUInk)stamps. I used two sets in my projects today: Bountiful Harvest and Giving Thanks.

First, I created my card, which is my submission for today's Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast. I stamped the image with Memento ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored her in with my copics. I used all SU cardstock (More Mustard and Ruby Red). I used SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and placed rhinestones in each corner. I used my nestabilities to cut out the image and scallops. My designer paper is from DCWV's Fall stack. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a glittery orange Making Memories brad.

Next, I created my two boxy bags, which were designed by Jody Morrow (TexasJodyLynn). You can find the directions on her blog here. I stamped the pilgrims with Memento ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock, colored them both in with copics, and cut them out. I put Glossy Accents onto the apples in the girl's basket to make them shine. I used my nesties to cut out the scalloped circles and placed rhinestones around the scallops. I adhered the pilgrims to the nesties using dimensionals. I used my new tag nesties to punch out the tag and stamped the sentiment onto that. I also placed a SU Pumpkin Pie brad in the hole of the tag. The ribbon is from Michael's dollar bin. I placed baggies of candy corn inside the boxes (okay, I'll admit it, I ate my way through about half a bag of candy corn today :) I love that stuff LOL).

I hope you enjoy my Thanksgiving projects. I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.

Hugs, Christine

Tilda and Edwin Searching for Santa




Hello everyone! Whew! My card today is certainly a labor of love. I decided to do another Try a New Technique Challenge over on Splitcoast. Our challenge this week was to create a Stair Step Fold card. I had so much fun with this new technique. I just kept adding and adding to the card :) This card literally took me at least three hours yesterday (crazy, huh?!?!) :)

I first made the card base (which is SU's Night of Navy) using the instructions found on Splitcoast. I also adhered my designer paper (from DCWV's Christmas stack) onto the base. Next, I stamped the house (from Magnolia stamps) onto Georgia Pacific cardstock using Memento black ink. I colored the house in with my copics. Next, I inked the edges in blue ink (from Memories Direct). I then mounted the image onto SU's Brocade Blue followed by Elegant Eggplant. I then used a cuttlebug die to cut out the corners around the image. I placed blue rhinestones from M's for added bling. I added the image panel to the card base using dimensionals.

Next, I stamped the Santa flying over the moon image (also from Magnolia stamps) and I colored it with my copics. I used my nestabilities to cut out the cirlce and scallop circle (which is SU's So Saffron). I inked around the image in yellow ink (from Memories Direct). I then adhered the circles to the main image using dimensionals.

I then stamped Tilda and Edwin (also from Magnolia stamps), colored them in with copics, and cut them out. I added Diamond Stickles to their wings, my Sakura glitter pen to the light coming from the lanterns, Gold Stickles to the star on Edwin's pants, and Red Stickles to the heart on Tilda's boot. I adhered them both to the card base using dimensionals.

For the front panel, I adhered a navy blue ribbon from M's dollar bin, Primas, and Purple rhinestones. The sentiment is from Verve and I cut it out using my new tag nestabilities.

I would really love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow!

Hugs, Christine :)

Tilda with Lantern




Hello everyone! :) I am finally back. I took a couple of days off, but now I'm back and am crafting like crazy :) My card today is my submission to the Sketch Saturday challenge blog . I was so excited to find this blog site, they have new awesome sketches every Saturday and the design team is incredibly talented.

I first stamped Tilda, from Magnolia stamps, onto Georgia Pacific cardstock using Memento black ink. I colored her with copics and cut her out. I used my Sakura glitter pen to add some glitter to the light coming out of the lantern. My cardstock is SU's Ballet Blue and Rose Red. The design paper is from DCWV's Christmas stack. I used my rectangle nestabilities as well as my snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I also used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch, red rhinestones, and SU's ticket corner punch for some added touches.

What do you think? Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday. More tomorrow :)

Charlotte's Christmas Tree



Hello everyone and TGIF! :) I'm so excited that the week is almost over. Tomorrow I have some friends coming over and we're going to stamp the day away :) I'm also taking a mini vacation from work (not really going anywhere, but I'm in desperate need of a break :) ) so I will be getting a five day weekend. Yay! :)

For my card today, I had to ink up my new Charlotte stamp from Whiff of Joy. I inked the stamp up with Memento black ink and stamped it twice onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored the first image with my copics. I then colored just Charlotte from the second image with copics, cut her out, and attached her to the first image with dimensionals to pop her out. I added Gold Stickles to the star, red stickles to the garland, and Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles to the ornaments. I also used my Sakura glitter pen to put some glitter on the holly in Charlotte's hair. I mounted the image onto SU's Rose Red cardstock.

Next, I created my card base out of SU's Always Artichoke (my card base measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2). I layered Rose Red on top of that. My designer paper is from DCWV's Christmas stack. For some finishing touches, I added ribbon (from Michael's dollar bin), Primas, and a MS pearl.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.

Acetate Treat Box



Good morning everyone,

Today's project is pretty simple. I decided to make an acetate treat box. This was a Try a New Technique Challenge several weeks ago on Splitcoast. You can see the template and directions here .

The Trick or Treat bag stamp and the candy coming out of it are from the Trick or Treat mini set from Hanna Stamps. I stamped the bag and the candy separately onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored them in with copics. I punched the bag out using SU's 1 3/8 circle punch and then punched out a scallop circle from SU's Elegant Eggplant using SU's scallop circle punch. I cut the candy out and adhered it to the bag. I then covered the candy in Diamond Stickles for some bling. :) The patterned paper is from K&Co.'s Halloween stack. The ribbon is from Memory Makers. I got the acetate (which is just transparency paper) from Office Max. Of course, I had to fill the box up with Candy Corn, my favorite Halloween candy :)

I hope you enjoy. I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.

Hugs, Christine

Halloween Mini Pizza Box










Hi everyone and happy Wednesday! :) I'm so sorry for all the pictures today, but this project took me SO long to do and I'm kinda proud of it so I wanted to show it to you :) This project was made for this week's Try a New Technique Challenge over on Splitcoast. Our challenge was to create a mini pizza box. This was so much fun! :)

All the stamps I used are from Spiral Whispers (love this company!). All images were colored using my copic markers. I used SU's Elegant Eggplant for the box and for the mini card bases. I used Basic Black, Gray, and Elegant Eggplant, cut using my new rectangle nestabilities, on the front of the box. The spider webs were cut using a MS punch. The bat paper is from K&Co. The ribbon is from M's. I used Fiskar's Threading Water punch on Basic Black paper and adhered it around the edges of the box lid. On the little cards, I used the same paper, nestabilities, and Primas with purple rhinestones in the center. I lined the inside of the box with the design paper from K&Co.

This was such a fun project. I hope you like it. I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.

Santa's Cookies



Happy Monday everyone :) I had so much fun coloring this cute little House Mouse stamp. This card is my submission for this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge blog. Our challenge this week was to create a card using Christmas animals.

I stamped my House Mouse image using Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with my copics. I used Liquid Applique on the white part of the Santa hat the little mouse is wearing (I love that stuff!). Next, I created my card base, which is a standard A2 size (4 1/4 by 5 1/2), out of SU's Bravo Burgandy. I layered SU's Always Artichoke on top of that followed by my designer paper from DCWV Christmas stack. I used SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and placed pearls in the corners. I added a red bow (from Michael's) and Primas. It's a pretty simple card but I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Kiss the Cook



Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful day. I have to give special thanks to Suzanne Dean for her inspiration for my card today. Without her, I never would have known about The Stampin Place, which has so many wondeful scenes (I've used some already with Magnolia and Whiff of Joy stamps on my blog). Suzanne used this same kitchen scene on her blog last month and it is so awesome. You can view her card here .

For my card today, I stamped the kitchen scene with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with my copics. I added Glossy Accents to the window and clock face and I used a white gel pen for some highlights. Next, I stamped Hanna (from the Kiss the Cook set from Hanna Stamps), colored her with copics, and cut her out. I created my card base, which measures 5x7, out of SU's Regal Rose. I layered Always Artichoke on top of that followed by my designer paper from DCWV Nana's Nursery baby girl stack. I then mounted my kitchen image onto Regal Rose followed by Always Artichoke and placed that onto my card base. I then adhered Hanna with dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from Hanna Stamps. I stamped it onto Regal Rose and punched it out with SU's 1 1/4 circle punch. I then punched out the Always Artichoke circle using SU's 1 3/8 circle punch and adhered the sentiment to the card base. For a finishing touch, I added pink ribbon from Michael's.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll be back with more tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine

Lovebirds



Hello everyone :) A double posting from me today. I was able to spend some more time in my stamp room this evening and created this card for the Sarah Kay Challenges blog . Our challenge this week was to use the color blue. I had so much fun with this challenge. This card is for my sister and brother-in-law's anniversary. I hope they like it :)

I inked my Sarah Kay image (from Stampavie) with Memento black ink and stamped it onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I then colored it in with my copics and inked around the image with blue ink (I used blue ink from Memories Direct). Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Night of Navy. I layered SU's Bordering Blue on top of that followed by my designer paper from K&Co. I mounted my image onto Night of Navy followed by Bordering Blue and adhered that to the card base.

Next, I used my new nestabilities tag punch to punch out the ribbon tag. I stamped my sentiment, which is from Studio G, onto the ribbon tag (I used Versafine black onyx ink which I find works best on the Studio G clear stamps). I then ran the ribbon through the tag (the ribbon is from my stash, I think I got it from Michael's). For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a sparkly blue Making Memories brad.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.

Hugs, Christine :)

Tilda Playing in Leaves




Hello everyone and Happy World Card Making Day! :) My card today is my submission to the Tilda & Company Challenge blog . Our challenge this week was a sketch challenge. I inked up my new Tilda stamp (from Magnolia stamps) with Memento black ink and stamped her onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored the image in with my copics and added some glitter from my Sakura Glitter Pen to the leaves. I cut the scallops using my nestabilities. I sponged Pumpkin Pie ink around the image.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Chocolate Chip. I layered Pumpkin Pie on top of that followed by my designer paper from Basic Grey. I used SU's Ticket Corner punch on the corners and placed brownish-orangeish rhinestones in the corners. I added a ribbon from M's dollar bin and Primas to the card. I used my nestabilities to cut out the tag and stamped my greeting (from The Stampin Place) onto the tag. In the picture, my ribbon was twisted funny and is covering up part of the greeting. I'm so sorry about this, I didn't notice this when I was taking the picture. In real life, the bow does not cover the greeting :) The greeting says "Autumn Greetings."

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely weekend. More tomorrow.

Singing Charlotte



Good morning everyone and happy Friday! :) I don't know about you all, but I am so happy the weekend is almost here. This has been one crazy week :)

I put together a pretty simple card for today. I used my new Charlotte stamp from Whiff of Joy (LOVE their stamps, don't forget to check out their new releases available Oct. 4). I inked her with Memento ink and stamped her onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored her in with my copics and cut her out. I created my card base (which measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4), out of SU's Garden Green. I layered Ruby Red on top of that followed by my designer paper from DCWV Christmas stack (last year's). I used SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and placed red rhinestones from Michael's in the corners. The ribbons are also from Michael's. I cut the circle and scallops out with my nestabilities and adhered them to the card base with dimensioanls. I also adhered Charlotte with dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a glittery red Making Memories brad.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Wishing You Joy



Hello everyone,

It feels so good to be back, this week has been crazy and it's only half over! :) It felt good to get into the stamp room this evening, I've missed it!

For my card today, I inked up my new stamp from Spiral Whispers (LOVE this company!). This stamp is called Milly on Yule Log. I inked her up with Memento black ink and stamped her onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored her in with my copics and then added Diamond Stickles to the snow for an extra shimmery look. I also added blue stickles to the snowflakes. My card base (5 1/2 by 5 1/2) is SU's Pretty in Pink. I layered Bashful Blue on top of that followed by my designer paper from DCWV Christmas stack (last year's stack). The snowflakes are made from a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is from Verve. I punched it out with SU's 1 1/4circle punch, followed by the 1 3/8 circle punch, followed by the scalloped circle punch. I added pearls from M's to the scallops. I added Primas and MS pearls (the larger pearls) to the center of the Primas and the snowflakes. The bow is made from ribbon from M's.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Christine
