Oh Christmas Tree

The Limited Supplies challenge on Split Coast a while ago was to use a Christmas tree on your card. I tried to keep the supplies limited but I was also doing Taylor's sketch for that week on this card so it ended up with more than a few layers!

I used a circle and pinking circle nestability to frame my image and two Cuttblebug folders, the snowflake and Swiss Dots. The sentiment by Rubber Soul was punched with the Word Window punch from SU.

At least my bare little Amuse tree has limited decorations on it! (and check it out - it's on sale!)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Give your Dog a Holiday Bone and Love with Pizzazz

I wanted to share another craft I made to sell at my church fair. I made some more dog cookies - this time in the shapes of ghosts, pumpkins and turkeys for the up coming holidays! You can see my other dog bones on this post.

I placed two cookies in each bag - some went in clear cellophane bags (Michaels) and some into wax paperbags (Papertrey Ink). I cut toppers from DCWV The Pets Stack using the Top Note die from SU and folding it in half over the top of the bag. You can find lots of dog bisquit recipes here. I made the Milk Bone ones.

I stamped a little dog with a bone in his mouth (Stamp Craft) on brown card stock and punched it with a circle punch. I printed labels on the computer that say "Give Your Dog a Bone" and stuck them on the front.

I know people like to know what they are giving their pets so I printed a list of the ingredients on a label and placed it on the back of the bag topper.

And here is my little basket full of the dog cookie bags - ready for the sale!

And finally I have a card to show you - We had a fun Ways to use it challenge over on Split Coast a while ago entitled "Say it with Pizaaz'. We were to JAZZ up our sentiments! I used some Damask Sticky Alpha letters by ColorBok that I got recently on sale at Michael's for my JAZZED up sentiment. I added an embossed scalloped heart Nestability with a gem over the letter O, scored some lines above and below with my Scor Pal and added a thin gingham bow!

A clean and simple card with pizzazz!!

Sip and Relax

MariLynn has graciously filled in for the Teapot Tuesday challenges over on Split Coast while Mothermark is taking some needed time off.

Last week she had a lovely fall leaf teapot for us to be inspired by. The story is we're going on a Hayride for our teaparty but we can also bring cider if we don't feel like having tea! I hope I'm not too late to get on board - I can smell the horses so they must be close by!!!! I'm going to try and sit next to Anne because she said she has something to 'add' to her cider!!!

You can see the crazy Teapot challenges here in the Splitcoast forums - a new teapot and party story is shown each Tuesday! We really get carried away with our stories and they are SO fun!

Thanks for coming by today!

A Merry Sketch and A Man's Get Well

I've got two cards to share today - one from last weeks Color and Doubledog Dare challenges and one from this weeks same challenges (my cards are piling up!)

First, my card for the color challenge over on Split Coast last week which was to use Pink, sage green, and grey and the Doubledog Dare Challenge that you can find here in the forums was to use this sketch that Beverly (beestamper) created.

My stamp is from the Vintage Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps . I stamped the image on the green and pink card stock using Versamark Watermark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I cut out the Mery Christmas part from the pink and adhered it over the green piece with foam dimensionals. I adhered that to two pieces cut using the Labels three Nestabilities.

I used a rub on for the scrolls in the corners and colored my white ribbon with a gray copic to go with the colors in the challenge. The lovely designer paper is Amy Butler by K & Co.

We'd love to have you join in the DDC sketch challenge just put DDC in your keywords when you post your card in your Split Coast gallery.

I'd also like to remind you to check out all of Claire's new stamps over at Waltzingmouse Stamps - you're gonna like what you see - I promise! She tends to sell out fast too - so if you see something you want I'd recommend you load that baby into your cart!!

My second card was made for 3 challenges - this weeks color challenge, to use kraft, white and Mellow Moss, the Doubledog Dare Challenge where Ann Harmon (jdmommy) challenged us to make a male get well card without ribbon or flowers, and I used the sketch for the Cat's Pajamas Tuesday challenge!

I used the Off Beat Backgrounds set by Waltzingmouse Stamps to make the plaid bg on my card. The cat and sentiment are by the Cat's Pajamas.

Thank You Sow Much!

I just love this little gardening angel with her bag of seeds slung across her shoulder and seeds spilling from her outstretched hand. She's from the Earth Angel set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. This fun set comes with several different sets of wings, a wonderful rope of flowers, a butterfly body, lots of sentiments and other fun stuff so you really need to check it out!

I was so happy to see Nancy Ruth as the Featured Stamper on Split Coast this week - she and I were on the H&M Design Team together last year. My card today is a CASE of this cute fairy rub on card of Nancy's. I kept the sketch she used but didn't do any cuttlebugging, I changed the colors, did some sewing on it and used stamps instead of rub ons.

Claire has 6 brand new sets to show you over at the Waltzingmouse Web Shop - and be sure to check out her blog to see all the wonderful creations she has to show you using these stamps!

You can also check out the other Waltzingmouse DT - see my side bar and click on their names to be wisked off to their blogs! But remember to leave me a comment first!! LOL!!

A Chilling Color Resist!

My card today is for two challenges - the color challenge on Split Coast and the Doubledog Dare Challenge I do with some Split Coast Friends - last week Hostess Charlene asked us to use crayon resist on our card.

You can find the tutorial for crayon resist in the resources over at Split Coast here

First I stamped this great skull image from the Stampin Up set called From the Crypt with black ink on glossy white paper -I let it dry (actually hot gunned it dry!) - then colored the skull with a white crayon. Next I sponged over the image using bravo burgandy and so saffron inks. I wiped the image with a paper towel and it stayed white where the crayon had been colored. I apparently missed a few areas on the skull with my crayon and it got colored burgandy - but I like how that came out!

The framings are cut with the Labels 3 Nestabilities and the background spider web is a Cuttlebug Folder.

You can find the Doubledog Dare Challenges in the Split Coast forum here or on my sidebar.

Inside my card I stamped this very fun witch and BOO! from the Waltzingmouse Stamp set called Halloween Party.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

I'm teaching a class over at The Papertree in Manchester, NH tomorrow morning so I've been busy preparing the materials for that. I always have such a great time there with all my stamping friends - and owner, Michelle, is just a blast to be around - not to mention how fun her store is - she's got all the new stamps and papers!! If you are ever in the Manchester, NH area - be sure to stop by there.

AND - I'll be revealing some exciting news I've been dying to tell you for a month or so coming up on my blog on Tuesday 9/29 so be sure to come by for that!!

Good Health to You!

I made this card for the Clean and Simple sketch challenge on Split Coast. You can see the sketch card here. I stamped the chain 3 times behind my image panel instead of using another panel or fibers. I sponged all the edges with So Saffon ink and popped up the image on foam dimensionals.

All the stamps are from the Irish Blessing set by Waltzingmouse Stamps - a clean and simple card!

An Apron for a Friend

Stef showed us the Lama Designs web site for the inspiration challenge on Split Coast. I was inspired by this pretty apron.
I've been wanting to use this apron stamp by Lockhart stamps - it lends itself so well to being paper pieced. I used Cosmo Cricket DP's - Early Bird on the apron and Girl Friday for the towel. I left the ends of the twill loose to suggest apron strings. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Earth Angel set

This also qualifies for the Moxie Fab World's around the house challenge.

A Pumpkin Boo!

I was so excited to see Tankgrl as the Featured Stamper this week on Split Coast - we were on the H&M DT together for a while last year - so I know she does terrific work! There were lots of cards I found that I'd like to case but finally decided on this pretty flower card .

I've been wanting to use these pumpkin Nestabilities as well as this fun spider web ribbon that I got from Sharon's No Time to Stamp Ribbon store and I thought they'd make great substitutes for the flower and ribbon on Heather's card.

The stamps are from the Halloween Party set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

It's a gorgeous day here in MA today - I'm out to the yard to plant some ornamental cabbages, mums and asters!

A Batty Halloween and two Hawks

The Limited Supplies Challenge on Split Coast was to use Spooky colors and no more than 4 embellishments. I used black, purple, green and orange - a ribbon and 3 sparkly foam embellies. I started this card having all the squares lined up - then accidentally hit the pile and I liked the way it looked all askew!

We just got back from a wonderful week away in VT - and it's great to be back stamping again!

One of the things we did while we were away, was take a class at the British School of Falconry at the Equinox - we had an introductory lesson where we learned how to call a hawk to our gloved fist and release it back to the perch - then we walked along the field - where the hawk followed from tree to tree - then flew back to the leader - what a super experience that was!!

Here's Kent with Wallace on his glove - Dawn is attaching a transmitter to his leg in case he flew away - they could track him.

Here is beautiful Hamish - who I got to work with. In this picture - he's sitting on my left gloved fist and I'm taking the picture with my right hand. I wanted to lean over and give him a kiss he was so 'cute'! - but Dawn said they're really not into that (!) - he was just inches from my face and never tried to peck or shy away. He was happy to be going outside to play!

Then we walked them outside where Dawn took our picture - and she proceded to teach us how to cast them off our hands. They have little strips of leather tethered to each leg - and those are wrapped around our glove so they don't fly away until we are ready to work with them. We swung are arm forward while releasing the strips and they would fly to a perch - and when we raised our glove to waist height again they would come swooping back to us.
Kent got this great picture of Hamish flying back to me. Dawn also put a little piece of filet mignon on my glove as an incentive for him to come back!

Dawn told us they use hawks for these classes instead of falcons because hawks are social birds so they are comfortable when several birds are in the field. They also train to the glove - not to a specific person - so they will do their 'tricks' with anyone who wears the glove where the falcon trains with a specific person and works only with that person.

You really should try this if you ever get the chance - these birds are absolutely beautiful and so fun to hold!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stamping Around in Manchester, VT !

So here I am in beautiful Manchester, VT (even though it was overcast it was still lovely!) for the Stamping Around weekend. It was held at The Inn at Willow Pond. This is the main building where we had our breakfast and got our coffee all day long.

The room for our workshop was in this bulding directly across the drive.

Our first class on Friday night was led by Erika Martin. She had us do a really intersting project involving an 8x8 canvas board, acrylic paints, small pieces of designer papers and Modpodge. Here's Erika showing us her sample (which was larger than the one we made today).

We started by painting a canvas board with blue acrylic paint. Then we added white with swirling strokes. While that was drying we cut out a sun, a hillside, and rectangles and triangles to make little houses to run along our hillside. (We had been instructed to bring a bag of coordinating color designer paper scraps with us to the workshop). So here is the beginning of my project.

And here it is after I got it all together. After we got all the pieces on it - we went over the whole thing with ModPodge - let it dry overnight and in the morning we outlined all the pieces with a fine point Sharpe marker to give all the pieces definition.

Here's a shot from the back of the room we were working in.

Here's me sitting with new found friend Dee who came over from Conway, NH for the weekend. (Hi Dee!)

We were all asked to make nametags before coming to the weekend - here's mine.

Julie & Kim give away prizes all weekend long (I won a pack of new 6x6 Basic Grey papers, an Amuse Halloween Stamp and a Castle Clear Stamp !) - below center is Julie picking out a winning number. Erika is on the left here, then Julie Masse, Kim Schofield in the green sweater (the organizers of these workshops), and you can see Cindy Lawrence another instructor in the red sweater.

On Saturday we had 4 classes and just look at the wonderful projects we made! Joanne Basile had us make this fun tote box and 2 beautiful cards! The stamps are by Stamping Bella.
We hardly took a breath and we were onto class #2 led by Cindy Lawrence where we made this wonderful box that she designed as well as these two beautiful cards using a stamp set by Our Craft Lounge.

Then we broke for lunch where the choices were smoked chicken, pulled pork, ribs, brisket, baked beans, cole slaw, ceasar salad, corn bread and Texas toast - Phew!!! talk about yummy!

Next up was Jenn Shurkus - who I'm sure many of you know as one of the Amuse Instructors

She had us make 5 (count 'em - five!) great Halloween cards using some of Amuse's new stamps. Each one was cuter than the last!

Ok, so by now we are getting pretty exhausted from our marathon stamping - but we had one more project to go. Julie Masse taught the last class and she had us make this terrific acetate box decorated with a wonderful pumpkin multistep stamping set from Kitchen Sink Stamps. Can you see how 3 dimensional these pumpkins look?! And we got 2 cute aroma wax pumpkins and a votive candle to tuck inside.

So there you have it! Don't you wish you had come!?!?! Check out the next Stamping Around to be held in PA in Nov - they still have spots open I think.

Thanks for much for dropping by today! Can a person have too much stamping in one day?!!?

Lady Bugs and Buttons to the Rescue!

Here you see just a small portion of the giant ladybug army that has been dispersed to snatch back Ladybug Lou-La-Bella Rock-a-Fella from the dastardly evil thug, big bug. They are majorly pissed that any kind of bug would think they could get away with this kind of thing and they are growing larger and larger, even as we speak, as they fly to their destination - they are also gathering buttons along the way to throw at the evil thug big come along - there will be a fun tea party celebrating the rescue in a very short time and we are ALL invited!!

To see what the heck I'm talking about?!?! You can check out Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday challenges on Splitcoast Stampers here !

My card was also made for this weeks Doubledog Dare Challenge that I do with some Split Coast friends - Fran challenged us to use buttons on our card. We'd love to have you join in on this DDC challenge too!

An Icky Spooky Boo!!

I made this card for two challenges over on Split Coast today - the CAS (clean and simple) challenge was to pop up something on your card using foam dimensionals. The Try a New Technique challenge was to make your own stamp using a piece of Fun Foam and a Cuttlebug folder.
On the left above is the 4"x5 1/4" piece of Fun Foam that I cut and then ran through my Spider Web Cuttlebug Folder (shown on the right). You can see the web impression embossed on the foam. I ran tape along the back of the roam and attached it to my acrylic block. Then I inked the foam with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped it on my card.

I stamped three spiders and the BOO (Waltzingmouse Stamps - Halloween Party) cut out the spiders and punched the BOO and adhered them over the web using foam dimensionals. I originally only put one spider on the web - but multiplying by 3 increased the icky-scary-spooky factor don't you think???!!! LOL!!!

Thanks for coming by today - hope everyone who has Labor Day off is enjoying their day - I'm off for a walk with DH - I've been stamping all morning - time to get some fresh air (then I can stamp again) !!!

I made this card for the sketch challenge over on Splitcoast this week as well as the Doubledog Dare Challenge I do with a group of friends (see my sidebar). Joanne (sleepyinseattle)was our hostess and her challenge was to use an apple on our card.

I clear embossed some apples on the black panel and cut out a red apple and attached it on the sentiment panel. The stamp set is from Papertrey Ink The panels are cut with Labels Eight Nestabilities. You can see all the DDC cards here.

Zebra Tea Party in Africa

Phew!!! I think I just made the last flight to Africa - I thought I was going to miss it!

This week Mothermark invited us all to come along to a teaparty/concert in Africa this week to help Mr & Mrs Zebralski tone down the wild ways of their aspiring rockstar teenager Zeke.

I'm hoping my Grevy Zebras (who swore to me that they are directly related to Zeke) will inspire them with their natural beauty and majesty to tone down his 'rock star' look a little bit while at the same time allowing him to find the space in the world that fits him!

This is an actual photo that I took at the Lewar Downs Wildlife Conservancy, at Lerai Tented Camps in Isiolo, Kenya when Kent and I were there on safari in 1998.

These are Grevy zebras - their stripes don't go around the whole body - they stop at the top of the belly which is white. There is another zebra called the Churchill zebra whose stripes do cover the whole body. I learned these little details from our guide, Joseph, on our trip!

I enlarged my photo 211% (didn't have a digital camera at the time so I just photocopied the print on my printer - Yikes!) and printed it on white cardstock - the card is a whopping 8 1/2 x 4 3/4. I stamped the sentiment directly on the cardstock. I didn't think it needed anything else added accept for the black framing panel.

I'll see you all soon at the Rock concert teaparty! If I'm late save some tea and music for me!!!!

Thanks for dropping by today!

A Vintage Merry Christmas to You!

Here is a second card I made for the challenge contests going on over at Paper Crafts Moxie Fab World. (see yesterday's post for my first card). They're asking you to make specific kinds of holiday cards and link them back to their blog for a chance to win some fun prizes and to be featured on their blog.

I made this card for the 'create a shabby chic or vintage' holiday card.

I thought this pretty Christmas label stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps had a vintage look to it. I embossed it in gold and set it on 2 Nestability circles against this lovely holly designer paper from Basic Gray (Wassail). I tied a pretty gold ribbon from Papertrey Ink through slots punched in the circles - leaving a loop on one end and tying a bow on the other. To finish it off I added 3 gold brads to the bottom corner.

So check out the vintage challenge and enter your cards! Or - wish me luck in winning!?! Be sure to check back to see more projects for the other challenges that I'll be posting this week.

An Inspired Prayer

This week's Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast was hosted by my good friend Anne Harada. I was so excited that she asked me to make a card for her to post with the challenge as a sample!

She showed us a fun wall paper web site, Creative Wall Covering to inspire us. I found these pretty flower wall appliques and immediately thought they looked like some Nestability flower dies that I had. And here is the card I created.

The papers are all Papertrey Ink as is the tiny dotted ribbon. I used two different Cuttlebug Folders, Script and Birds & Swirls. I used a sugar coated brad in the center of the big flower. Almost every layer on this card is up on foam dimensionals!
Happy weekend everyone! We were going to go kayaking with my niece and her husband but it looks like we're getting a day of rain thanks to Hurricaine Danny - oh well - maybe it will clear on Sunday?!?!

Early Christmas Wishes

Joanne (jojot) was the featured stamper on Split Coast this week. I chose her cute buzzin card to case. I turned the sketch on it's side, used different stamps and colors and a different edge punch.

The cute gingerbread stamps are from the Oven Fresh set by Waltzingmouse Stamps . I used a piece of magic mesh behind the panels, the mesh cuttlebug folder on the panel and red tiny twinkles from Taylored Expressions inside some of the circle punches (can you see them?!).

One Christmas card down - 39 to go!

Don't have a Clue???

I have cleverly hidden several clues on this seemingly innocent 'come hither' card. Can you find them?!?!?

You can find out what the heck I'm talking about here on Mothermark's blog. and it's also posted over in the forums on Split Coast here Come along and help us find the CLUE's!!!
