Moxie Fab Taintor-fied Tin!

There's a fun challenge going on over at Moxiefab World to use a vintage image and team it with a sassy sentiment. I altered a tin rather than making a card.
Well - I just happened to have this Home Spun Cotton Scrap from Crafty Secrets with the vintage image and sassy sentiment already together for me!
I re-purposed a small candy tin I had received for Christmas by covering it with this fun Basic Grey Nook & Pantry/beaters DP. I cut two panels with Nestabilities (Labels Eight and Labels Four)and layered them with the cotton scrap to the front of the tin. Then I added some pretty lace I had around the edge of the cover and along the bottom of the tin. Finally - I sponged all over everything with Ranger Tea Dye Distress ink to make it look like it was really old.

I made a layered flower using the same DP to put on the cover with a couple of Prima Artful leaves.

Here's a view of the whole tin. This really looks like something out of grandma's kitchen cabinet - don't you think?!

A Coaster Photo Book and A Double Dare Sketch

I made this little coaster photo album for the November Fan Club Central Theme challenge over on Split Coast - Chick Lit. You had to use the theme of literature or chickens! LOL!!I love this little child sitting on the pile of books while reading one of them. It comes from a set by Clear Art Stamps called 'Story of Me'. The sentiment is H&M Stamps (All I Want for Christmas) and the date is Karen Foster Snap Stamps. This book will be used for pictures taken this Christmas. I used my Bind It all and the coasters are covered with these fun winter designer papers from My Minds Eye.
Stamps: Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps: the Story of Me, Sentiment: H&M Stamps - All I want for Christmas, 2008: Karen Foster Snap Stamps
Paper: Mellow Moss, Naturals Ivory: SU, DP: My Minds Eye: Snowed In
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine
Accessories: Medium Weight coasters, corner rounder, oval punch, Bind It All , Prismacolor markers
My second card uses the sketch challenge from Split Coast as well as supplies sent to me by Beverly (Beestamper) for the weekly challenge I do with a group of SCS friends. We had to use some or all of the supplies she sent us and make it a Christmas card. I used the stamps, the designer paper, the ribbon and the foam flower that I received (what a fun package in the mail!). It makes you be a little more creative when you are given items to use on a card - these aren't colors I'd usually reach for!

You can see the other supplies challenge cards here - they'll be posting them all week until next Tuesday.

I appreciate your coming by today! I'm gathering my blog candy - should have it posted sometime over the weekend so be sure to check back!

Stamps: Studio G Clear stamps
Paper: Certainly Celery, pink Passion: SU, DP: KI memories
Ink: onyx black versafine

Look Who's Turning 1 !

So it was back to work for me today - getting up at 5:15 am once again and getting on the subway. Oh well, the days off were great while they lasted!

Wednesday is the Sketch Challenge over on Split Coast Stampers and this is today's sketch.
I volunteered to make a card for our church organist's son, Dante, who is having his 1st birthday this week so I used the sketch to make this card for him.

I used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder for the background and the panel and my Nestability squares and rectangle for the panels. I dotted around the edges with my white gel pan and a blue Prismacolor marker. I love the font on this stamp set called Sexy Numbers by Clear Art Stamps.

It's great starting the work week on Wednesday - before you know it the weekend is here again - wish I could work these hours all the time!

I really appreciate your coming by to check out my blog today - Hope to see you again tomorrow!
