WMSC52 - 1 Year Anniversary of the Waltzingmouse Sketch!

Today is a special day for the Waltzingmouse Sketch - it turns 1 years old today!! whoo hoo!!  Can you believe it?!?!     Be sure to read to the bottom of my post to see how you can win a WMS stamp set from me!

To celebrate this special event we're doing something a little bit different today.   Each Mischief Maker and Design Team member who is participating in today's sketch challenge has chosen a sketch from the past year and made a card for it.  

So you get to pick which sketch you'd like to use from all of those we have chosen!!  How fun is that?!?! -  you can see the sketch choices and all the details of this special sketch challenge over at the WMS Sketch blog.

Here is the sketch that I chose to use today -  Sketch # WMSC16
And here is the card I made using this sketch:

I die cut the banners out of felt with my Nested Lacey Penant Nestabilities. and I used Petite Oval Nestabilities to die cut my sentiment which is from the Say It Loud set.  I'm thinking with the dark colors, the felt banners and minimal accessories - this would make a good masculine card, right?!?!

..... and just for fun - I went searching back in my blog to find the card I made when this sketch was originally used on September 25, 2010 and here it is:
So come along and join us for this special  1 year Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - you'll find all the details over at the WMS Sketch Blog!

And now something fun for you -  in honor of the 52nd WMS sketch - I'm offering one lucky person the stamp set I used on my sketch card today  -  Say it Loud!!    

Leave me a comment telling me if you own any WMS stamps (and what's your fav set of those you own or those you want!)  You have until Friday 6/24/11 at 11 pm EST to leave your comment -  I'll post the randomly chosen winner on Saturday 6/25  with my WMS sketch posting - good luck!

Happy Anniversary in a Bowl & Blog Candy!

Here is an inspiring bowl:
And here is the card I created after being inspired by it!

I was away all day today teaching a couple of classes at the Papertree in Manchester, NH (Hi Michelle - Tasha - Becky and Carole!) but I missed last weeks inspiration challenge over at Split Coast because I was at The Stamping Around Weekend in CT and I didn't want to miss another one! Stef showed us a web site called Tracy Porter for us to find our inspiration.

I used my PTI damask set that I just had to have but hadn't inked up yet (!), a nestie tag trio for the sentiment and an SU ribbon slide (another thing I don't often use for some reason!) The fleur de lis's were punched with an EK Success punch.

And now - as promised - Here is some fun blog candy to celebrate my reaching 100,000 hits on my blog! Whoo Hoo!! With a big thank you to everyone who has stopped by my blog - those who come everyday - or once in a while or by random chance!!! I really appreciate it and hope that it means you find inspiration from my postings.

So here's what one lucky commenter will receive:
1. The Papertrey Ink Everyday Classics Limited Edition 2008 Set which I received for purchasing so many PTI sets last year! I got two sets so I'm sharing one with you! ( you cannot purchase this set - you have to have earned it.)
2. Thomas Kinkade Hometown PrideVignette Stamp by Cornish Heritage Farms.
3. Foxy and Birdie Snag'em Stamps by Imaginisce.
4. An Ornare corner piercing stencil.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post by 6 pm EST Wednesday 7/22/09. I will randomly choose a comment number and post the winner on Thursday. If the winner doesn't contact me within 24 hours I will pick another number.
So good luck! and thank you again for checking out my blog - and especially for leaving me comments so I can visit you also!!

Celebrate With Me! My One Year Blog-aversary!!

Welcome to my one year blog-aversary! I can't believe it's been a whole year since I first hit that 'make your own blog' button on Google! I remember how nervous I was and how I had absolutley no idea what I was doing!! I had wanted to make a blog for quite some time but kept putting it off because I didn't really know how to do it - but finally I had to just jump in and do it because I was applying for design team positions and it was required - and I'm SO glad that I did!

During this past year I have made 334 posts (boy, I need a life!) and had over 65,000 hits (thanks to ALL of YOU!!).

I have learned so much from you and made so many wonderful blogging friends that I wanted to share my celebration!

So what's a celebration without presents you ask??!! Well - how about these?!



Included here: Twitterpated Collection - Foxy Stamp and Birdie Stamp by Imaginisce along with 8 coordinating 6x6 pieces of designer paper. A package of Basic Grey Urban Prairie glazed brads, a 6x6 Urban Prairie paper pad (36 6x6 sheets), and two stamp sets from H&M Stamps - Sweetly Stamped (cake, pie and cupcakes - yum!) and Peaceful Decor - a stamp set of mix and match plants, pots, candles, apples and fun sentiments (retired).

All you need to do to have a chance to win this blog candy is to leave me a message on this post. Easy Peasy! I'll have random.org pick a winner on Wednesday night (2/11) after which I'll post the winner.

So - good luck! - thanks for joining in my one year blog-aversary celebration - and, as always, I greatly appreciate your stopping by!

Exciting News and Some Blog Candy!

I'm so very excited today! A couple of weeks ago Jennifer Meyer (Lovetostamp6 on Splitcoast) pm'd me and asked if I would like to be a guest designer on Our Creative Corner some Saturday in January. Well - let me think......... I didn't have to think at all really!! - I said YES with a little tremor running through my body! Yikes - what pressure to make something worthy! So today it was a color challenge - to make a card using just two shades of blue and a neutral color. I used Buckaroo blue from Stampin up and then some designer papers with a lighter blue on it - I guess it's like Baja Breeze with white as my neutral. I inked up my pretty angel from the Calling All Angels set from H&M Stamp Co. I clear embossed her to prevent the colors from bleeding when I colored her with Copics and Prismacolor markers. I cut her out and layered her over a stamping of the angel using foam dimensionals.

I used my rectangle nestabilities and a lacy punch from Martha Stewart. The sentiment was punched with the larger oval punch from Stampin Up and layered onto a Design Label (SU) punched piece of card stock using foam dimensionals.

I tied 3 pretty ribbons together and stuck a heart pin through it that I had added some simple beads to. And finally - I put some silver Spica pen on her wings and halo to give a little shimmer, which doesn't really show up in the pic unfortunately.

I hope you stop by and check out the challenges at Our Creative Corner - they have a different one every Saturday morning to inspire you. You can also see their logo on my side bar with a link to their site!

In honor of the honor bestowed on me today - I'm offering this wonderful "My Favorite Valentine" set from H&M Stamps as blog candy. I made this card using the dragon from this set and this card using the owl. (Note: this set sold out during the H&M Super Garage sale this past week - Heather has re-ordered it so it should be in her store soon! But I have a set that I'll send out to the winner right away!)
All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post. I'll pick the winner by random number.org and post it on Monday so be sure to check back!

Thanks so much for coming by - please let me know what you think of my challenge card today!

Blog Candy Winner and His Holy Name Challenge

Hi everyone ! Sorry I'm so late in posting but I had my monthly hair maintenance trim and color and it took forever!

First, I'm happy to announce the winner of my blog candy - and that winner is #7:

Jami {sgtStamper} said...
Soooo cute - love the colorful animals!! I went to the sale, added stuff to my cart and got sidetracked by kids.... then when I came back, the sets I wanted were sold out. Figures.hugs, Jami
January 7, 2009 6:23 PM

So Jami - let me know if you want the School Fun Percy


or the Percy builds Frosty. - and I'll mail it out to you right away! E-mail me with your choice and your address to [email protected]

They are both really cute stamps from H&M Stamp Co - you can see cards I made with them here and here.

And now I want to share with you a year long challenge that I am so excited to be participating in over on Split Coast.

It is called His Holy Name and you can see all the details here on Split Coast. It is run by Patter (identicaltriplets) on SCS and this is her description of the challenge:

"For 2009, we will be focusing on the Names of God. Every other week, I will post a name of our precious Lord along with a small devotion. You then will find a key scripture or a promise associated with that name and create a scrapbook page, card, ATC, Rolodex card or whatever you feel like creating."

She posts the challenge both on the Split Coast challenge thread and on her blog every other Sunday by 5 pm.

The name of God she gave us for our first challenge was "Holy". I am going to be making 6x6 scrapbook pages and I will be putting them in protective sleeves and hanging them on a wooden rack (that DH is making for me even as we speak!) that I can keep on my desk at work or on a table at home so I can flip through them and reflect on the different passages I chose for each name of God as the year goes on.

Here is my first page for the name HOLY: I chose Hebrews 12:14 as my verse: Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy: without holiness no one will see the Lord.

My NIV (New International Version) Bible has a Concordance in the back of it that list words (such as Holy) and lists all the verses where that word is used - so that is how I will locate and choose the verses for the challenges. I looked through all the Holy references until I found one that 'spoke' to me. I thought this one particularly timely given the conflicts going on in the world right now.

And please notice my very own watermark on the bottom left corner! I FINALLY figured out how to make one on my Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 thanks to this wonderful tutorial by Kurtis that I actually found quite some time ago but never had the time to focus on until yesterday. I am just so excited by this little thing!

I hope you will look into the "His Holy Name" challenge - maybe it's something you'd like to do this year also?

Thank you so much for coming by!

What Color is a Cow? Blue, Green, or Orange???

By now you must have heard that Heather - owner of H&M Stamps - is having a blow out garage sale?? ALL of her stamps are just $3 - $5 per set! She's clearing out her shelves to make room for her new spring/summer sets! But they are going fast - some are already gone - so you may want to pop over there NOW and then come back here?!

The card I made today for the Split Coast Color Challenge uses one of Heather's sets called Kiddie Farm. It includes animals, a barn, animal words, a tractor and a tree. The stamp outlines look like they were drawn with a crayon - a very cute kids card set! AND it only costs $4.00 in the sale!!! (are you still here?)

The challenge was to use blue, green and orange. Hard colors to use together! They seem to me to work best with kids stuff (primary colors I guess) so that's why I pulled out my Kiddie Farm set.

This card would be our 'let's learn our colors' card not a 'let's learn the real colors of animals' card!! LOL!!This really awkwardly angled shot (!!??) shows the layered heads and popped up circles.

Be sure to check back here on Saturday morning - you'll have a chance to win blog candy from me of one of the H&M Valentine sets that sold out today!

and check out fellow H&M DT member Carolina's blog - she's offering a gift cert to H&M Stamps.

All of the DT members listed on my side bar are showing fun cards made with Heather's stamps so go visit them too!

Please leave me a comment on this post to let me know if you went to the sale and bought something!!!! You can win one of the Percy stamps - I'll pick a random number winner on Thursday night! Edited to add: if you didn't go over to the sale - you can still leave a comment and be eligible to win!!

Stamps: Kiddie Farm: H&M Stamps
Paper: White: PTI, Ballet Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi: SU, DP: DCWV Stack III
Ink: Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore: SU, Onyx Black Versafine
Accessories: circle punches, dew drops, foam dimensionals, glue dots

Some Blog Candy and Two Flaky Cards

As promised - here is some blog candy to celebrate my reaching 50,000 hits. It includes Twisted Sentiments (some kind of R rated!) by My Favorite Things, Grill a Fella by Stamping Bella, the fern punch by Martha Stewart, some brown tone chipboard buttons by Colorbok, and a Designer mat pad by K&Company.

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling my why it is you stop by my blog!

You have until Friday 12/12 at 7 PM EST to leave a comment - I'll post the winner on Saturday 12/13.

and now for some cards -

For the limited supply challenge on Split Coast you could only use snowflake stamps, it had to be monochromatic, you could only use one word and you had to use bling!I think I got it all! I stamped the big snowflake on the card stock - then stamped it again - cut it out and layered it off kilter over the stamping on a foam dimensional. I used a snowflake background stamp and my Martha Stewart snowflake punch. - I'm afraid I got a little yellowish glare on the bottom right of the picture :(

This also qualifies for Sharon's No Time To Stamp challenge and the Our Creative Corner challenge.
Stamps: large snowflake: Penny Black, BG snowflakes: Trees Three- SU, Noel: 2008 Holiday Tag Collection: PTI
Paper: white, Spring Rain: PTI
Ink: Spring Rain: PTI
Accessories: foam dimensionals, circle punches, ribbon: PTI Spring Rain Twill, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, rhinestone stickers: Michaels
For my second card today - I was inspired by this bag from Bath and Body that I got when shopping there a few days ago.

I used the Three Trees set from Stampin Up (retired) and the sentiment from Silent Night by Papertrey Ink. I love the contrasts of the grey with the red and the simplicity of the one layer.

This card also qualifies for Sharon's No Time to stamp challenge as well as the Our Creative Corner challenge that I linked to on my first card above.

Stamps: Trees Three: SU, Merry Christmas: Silent Night PTI
Paper: White: PTI
Ink: Pure Poppy: PTI, Lake Mist: Adirondack

I appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to stop by here - have a great weekend - hope to see you here tomorrow!

A Case of A Cookie Card - A Class - and Blog Candy!

I've got lots to share with you today so stick with me on this longish posting!

First up will be my card for today's Featured Stamper on SCS - Anne Ryan's gallery was featured today and I chose this lovely card to CASE.

When you CASE a card you have to change at least 2 things - I used different stamps (but still the fun cookie theme!), I put the ribbon across the top instead of side and I used slightly different colors.

The gal holding the yummy try of cookies is from the H&M set 'Christmas is the Time for Cookies' and the sentiment is from the 'All About Birthdays' sentiment set. I stamped the cookies again on a scrap - colored and glittered them, then layered them over the main image. I also sponged and glittered the edges of the sentiment which is also up on foam dimensionals. I sponged over the scored lines on the cream panel with Bashful Blue ink to highlight the scoring.

Stamps: Christmas is the Time for Cookies, All About Birthdays sentiment: H&M Stamps
Paper: Bazzill Blue, brown and cream, Vintage Cream: PTI
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, Bashful Blue: SU
Accessories: ScorPal, Prismacolor markers, Copics, key tag punch: SU, curly label punch: SU, wide satin ribbon: unknown, Palette Stamp & Stick Pad, glitter: JoAnn's


This was the terrific fall view on my drive up Rte 93 from Massachusetts to New Hampsire yesterday to get to the Papertree where I was teaching a class yesterday. And no - I didn't make those skid marks in front of me!! Yikes!

I snapped these pics out my windows as I was driving along (oops! at least I wasn't on my cell phone! ) - it was so beautiful I just had to capture it. It was a perfect warm sunny day and the colors were on fire!
And here is the fun group at the Papertree that came to my class - each holding the first back pack we completed. From the bottom front left - that's Connie, then Dawn, Sandy, Marge, Gail, Charlotte, Janice and Priscilla - Marilyn was too shy to be in the picture. So a shout out to you gals! Didn't we have a fun morning!

As I showed you yesterday - these are what we made and I'll be posting instructions later this week once I get my act together.
And now as promised - BLOG CANDY! - I made 40,000 hits on my blog a few days ago and I am just so very thankful for and grateful to all of you who come by and have become my friends here - I'm offering blog candy for two lucky winners. Package #1 and Package #2.


Package #1 above includes Get Wella Bella with the sentiments "Get Wella Bella" and "Hope You Feela Bella", Bridesmaid or bride Bella, and Hula Female Riley (I forget her name?). Also in this package are six 6x6 papers of Basic Grey: Archaic, six 6x6 papers of Basic Grey: Sultry and a roll of Papertray Ink Aqua Mist Satin Ribbon.



Package #2 includes Corvette Bella with sentiment "I admire Your Drive", Bella carrying boxes of shoes, and Easter Egg Riley. Papers include: Six 4x6 Amy Butler double sided papers and six 6x6 pieces of Basic Grey Sultry and a roll of Papertrey Ink and a roll of Papertrey Ink Spring Moss Satin Ribbon.

The stamps are all mounted on easy mount and ready to be used on your acrylic blocks. They are stamps I purchased and then never used so they are out of their packaging and I mounted them on the foam backing.

All you have to do for a chance at one of these two prizes is to leave me a comment here on this post - If you are so inclined I'd love you to link this post on your blog to let people know about my blog candy.

I will pick the two winners Friday night 10/17/08 by Random Number Generator - the first number picked will get the 1st package - the 2nd number picked will get the 2nd package. I'll post the winners on Saturday 10/18/08.

Frightful H&M Blog Hop - With Blog Candy!

Hi Everyone - I am so excited to welcome you to the H&M Stamps First Design Team Blog Hop!

All of the design team members (listed at the end of my post) have created a fall theme craft for you to be inspired by.

And to add to the excitement each of us is offering a free H&M stamp set just for leaving us a comment!!

For my craft I created two treat containers for Halloween using the Fright Night Set.


First up is this cute acetate box filled with creepy eyeballs (the chocolate, peanut butter and caramel filled kind!! Yum! ) (Edited to add: I got these at CVS. ) You can see instructions for this box here. I used a different pattern for the top and bottom than in the instructions - I just cut a 3 inch square and scored it 1/2 inch on each side - like the top on the 3x3 box on a Splitcoast Weekly Inkling seen here. I thought it came out a little neater. I put eyelets on the punched holes on the cover to add sturdiness and tied knots on the inside ends of the ribbon. The cover slides up the ribbon when you open it.


And my second treat holder is a simple origami fold (or diaper fold) using a 6"x6" piece of designer paper. See the tutorial for it here. It's easy peasy to make - use any size square of double sided designer paper to make the size treat holder you want - and it folds up in just a minute. I tucked a little Kit Kat bar inside mine and attached the sentiment right to it. (It's Fright Night Every Night!!!!)

Now for the fun part - my gift to one lucky commenter is the Sweetly Stamped set by H&M Stamps seen below! How fun is this set with the ever popular cupcakes, cake and pie stamps and these super sentiments to make your cards a snap! Leave me a comment here and I will pick a random number winner on October 7th !


Every one of the Design Team members will be offering their own choice of an H&M Stamp set and you can enter on each blog (only once per blog though please!) so you have 10 chances to win a set!

Please hop over to the other Design Team members below to see what fun creations they have to show you!

Blog Candy Winner & A Cup of Tea and a Prayer

The Winner of my Blog Candy posted on 4/11 below was #19 picked by Random Number Generator - and comment #19 was bunny b who said:

Wow! What a sweet and awesome engagement proposal that was! Congrats to Katie & Greg! And congrats to you as well on your 5000 plus hits! Cute stamp! Reminds me of my dad - he loves to golf!
April 13, 2008 12:32 PM

I'll be e-mailing you for your mail address so I can get the golfafella out to you right away! Congratulations on winning and thanks to everyone who left a comment.
Now onto my card for the day which I made to cover 3 challenges over on Split Coast.


First, it was for today's sketch challenge and for two Fan Club/Dirty Dozen Challenges.
1) to use buttons on a card and 2) make a card based on the inspiration piece seen here:



The inspiration I took from the picture was the colors and the tea theme. The pretty rose button was from my MIL's button box that I inherited when she moved into assisted living and the green ones looked like leaves to me with the slot shapes in their centers. I'm not going to think about how I will ever get this into an envelope if I mail it to someone! Maybe it will be a card I hand to someone - LOL!! I used the script cuttlebug folder to represent the words on the boxes (not sure you can see that on the inspiration picture) and my corner rounder punch for the scalloped edges on the box covers. I used my nestabilities to cut the squares for the teapot image.

All the papers and the ribbon are from PapertreyInk

Congrats again to Bunny b and thank you so much for dropping by today -Hope you have a wonderful evening and see you tomorrow!

Stamps: Teapot: Rubber Stampede, teacup: unknown
Paper: PapertreyInk: White, blush blossom, spring moss, aqua mist
Ink: blush blossom, pitch black adirondack
Accessories: ribbon: Aqua mist swiss dots PapertreyInk, cuttlebug folders, dimensionals, nestability squares, corner rounder, buttons
Techniques: dry embossing

An Engaging Card and Fella Bella Blog Candy!

My niece, Katie, just got engaged and I wanted to share the cute story of how Greg proposed. They were going to Fenway Park to the opening day Red Sox game here in Boston. They are both avid Red Sox Fans. They had gone in on the subway and were walking through Boston Garden on their way up to Fenway Park. Greg said ' Let's sit here for a minute' and Katie thought that was kind of funny to stop but said 'Ok'. He started talking about how fun it was going to be to see the Red Sox get their World Series Rings and she agreed. Then he said 'How would you like to get a ring too?' and proceded to propose to her and give her a beautiful engagement ring! Then off they went to the game - and the Red Sox won! What more could you want for a fun night out??!!

So I wanted to make a special card for them - I guess I should have put baseballs all over it! LOL! but instead I made this card that covers a whopping 4 challenges! I'm a little behind on my card making this week. I took last night off because I had some finishing of other cards to do so I tried to catch up a little today!

I made my own designer paper using Flourishes scroll background stamp which covers the Limited Supplies Challenge - I used eyelets which was yesterdays Ways to Use It Challenge - I used Glitter Ice Stickles that covers Sharon's No Time Friday Challenge and I used Beates Weekend sketch! Phew!

Stamps: scroll background stamp: Flourishes, couple: A muse, Engaged: See D's wedding set
Paper: Papertrey white, soft sky, basic black SU
Ink: pitch black adirondack
Accessories: dimensionals, eyelets, cropadile, Ribbon: Papertreyink AquaMist, Silver ice stickles, corner rounder
Techniques: eyelets

And here's the Blog Candy!

Now for the fun stuff !!! - I hit 5000 views this week and I'm so excited - I wanted to thank you all with a nice Blog Candy offering! This is a brand new unmounted Golf a Fella by Bella Stamps. I can mount him on easy mount for the winner if they want it. I'm also including some 6" squares of masculine color DP's that you could use to make cards with the dashing fella!

Just leave a comment and tell me something about your dad or husband or significant other that you would make a Father's day card for maybe using this stamp. I'll pick the winner by random number generator at 10 pm EST Wednesday night, April 16th so be sure to post a comment before then!

Thanks for dropping by tonight! and good luck!
