Top o' the Mornin' to You 2010!

Today Ardodd (Ann)was the Featured Stamper over on Split Coast - whoo hoo! she has lots of wonderful cards in her gallery! (ETA: click on the photo to see the detail of her pearl necklace and bracelet!)

I chose her technique Tilda card to CASE today because I wanted to try this 'out of the box' cutting technique and I also have tons of Tilda's that I haven't yet inked up! The sentiment and shamrock are from the Irish Blessings set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I changed the colors, used different stamps and also made mine an easel style card with a calendar on it. The Saturday Spotlight challenge this week was to put a calendar of some kind on your project.
Here's how the easel card looks from the side. If you'd like to make an easel card you can see my tutorial here.

Thanks for coming by today! Got to go help DH shovel snow - again.....!

Cookin Up Some Love

I bet we've all been in the kitchen baking for the holidays in the past week or maybe we're going to be this week?!? So the Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast was to make a card with a recipe on it!

I used this week's Taylored Expressions sketch for my card.

I attached my little cooking Tilda panel with thick foam tape just at the top and bottom so there was an open space in the middle that I could slip my recipe through. The heart and sentiment are also up on foam dimensionals to help hold the recipe in place.

I stamped a little Magnolia rolling pin in light ink over the recipe.

This is a great Biscotti recipe - my sister got it from her friend last year and she gave it to me. These biscotti are a little softer than the norm so you can actually eat them without dunking them in tea or milk!

Thanks for stopping by - let me know what you've been baking this week - any good recipes to share?!?

Thinking of You with Sparkle

Today's featured stamper on Split Coast was Sparkle (sparkplug17) and what a great gallery to get inspired by. She had a whole album of Tilda cards - and since I have several Tilda's that I love but have yet to use (!) I chose her pink Tilda Birthday to case today.

I used a different Tilda than Sparkle did, a thinking of you sentiment from PTI rather than Happy Birthday, and different designer paper - but it is basically the same layout. I distressed the edges of the sewn panel. Tilda, the flower and the sentiment are all up on foam dimensionals.

Well - I'm off to make some pecan banana bread using up some banana's that didn't get eaten this past week in my lunches!

Thanks for coming by today!

Inspired Doubledog Rabbits

Spring is coming - really and truly!!! And we see some of it on the Inspiration Challenge web site this week which was Fitz & Floyd. I was inspired by these great rabbit candleholdersMy rabbits stamp is by 100 Proof Press which I stamped, then masked using Eclipse tape and stamped the fence by Magnolia over the mask. Then I colored the images with copics and prismacolor markers. I used my Labels One nestability for my image panel and my Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder for the 2nd panel. I used an oval punch from Stampin Up on the sentiment which is by Rubber Soul. I used some half gold beads, some tiny plastic flowers and some gold stickers to decorate the images.

This card also qualifies for the Doubledog Challenge I do each week with a group of friends on Split Coast - Francie G's challenge to us was to use a rabbit on our card. We'd love to have you join in on our Doubledog Challenges - just post your card in your gallery on SCS and use the keyword DDC.

You can see all the Doubledog Dare cards here - several new people have played along this week - why don't you??!

Hope you are having a nice weekend so far - thanks so much for stopping by!

A Tilda Valentine

Today's featured stamper over on Split Coast was Jaydekay and I chose this pretty Valentine of Judy's to CASE.

I used a different Tilda than she used and different flowers butI did follow her overall design and theme of stamps. The corner piece is punched from a Cuttlebug die.

I was so happy to use one of my Tilda's by Magnolia Stamps. I bought about 8 of them quite a while ago and have only used one of them so far. So I'm following one of my New Year's Resolutions - to use the stuff that I have! The sentiment is from the Sweet Love set by Papertrey Ink.

I cut out hearts from a designer paper and popped them up over the stamped flowers to make it more Valentine-ish! I colored Tilda with Koh I Noor pencils and gamsol.

Thanks so much for coming by!

Remember to check out my blog candy on Saturdays post- you have until Monday night to post a comment there for a chance to win!

A Double Dare, Two Dogs, and Trying Copics!

I have 3 cards to share with you today - I was so busy this week doing Sneak Peeks for Artful Inkables that my other cards have been piling up!!

I made this 5" x 5" card for the weekly Double Dare Challenge I do with a group of SCS friends. This week I was the hostess and I sent everyone 2 Magnolia stamped images (an Edwin and a Tilda) and they had to pick one and use it on their card. I chose Edwin the skier for my card.
I colored him with Prismacolor markers and used Copics for his face. I added punched photo corners that I embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder then topped with dew drops. The Let It Snow is a silver sticky strip by Stampendous. I had the acrylic word sticker in my stash and don't remember where it came from (!) - there are 7 or 8 of them with different words or snowflakes - all in white and blue. This is the first time I've used one of them!

You can check out the other challenge cards here and you'll see some of the Tilda's.

Stamps: Magnolia
Paper: White: PTI, Wild wasabi: SU, Plaid DP - DCWV Christmas Stack
Ink: Onyx Black bersafine
Accessories: Prismacolor markers, copics, dew drops, Class a Peel Stickers: Stampendous, photo corner punch: SU, acrylic word sticker, glue dots, cuttlebug, Swiss Dots folder, foam dimensionals

I made this b'day card for my future daughter-in-law, April - who's birthday was 8/10. She was away visiting her mother in NC on her birthday so I will give her this when she gets back.She and my son have 2 bassett hounds and so I'm always looking for anything with basset hounds on it.

This cute puppies image was a RAK from Mrs. Noodles over at SCS (thank you Dina!). The middle puppy is a basset hound. The fun sentiment and puppy stamp are both by Inkadinkado - the paw print with the heart in it is part of a new stamp set called Top Dog by Artful INKables

And these are the real thing - my 'grandchildren' (!) 7 month old Roscoe and 4 year old Daisy - and yes - the 7 month 0ld is already bigger than the 4 year old! (Trouble - right here in River City!)

Stamps: puppies & sentiment: Inkadinkado, paw print: Artful Inkables
Paper: white - Papertrey Ink, choc chip: SU, DP- DCWV The Pet Stack
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, Espresso - Adirondack
Accessories: Prismacolor markers, brown satin ribbon, foam dimensionals, circle punches.

Here is my card for the Ways to Use It Challenge at Split Coast - to use Copic markers to color an image on a card. I have about a dozen copics but haven't used them much yet not having a lot of colors - I usually use my Prismacolor markers and don't do a lot of shading. So my image today is colored with a combination of both kinds. I was quite surprised and thrilled with how the coloring came out - I have had this Kinkade stamp for ages - but have only previously stamped it monochrome - afraid to attempt coloring it. And for my first try I think it came out well - and will only improve as I practice and get more colors!

Here's a close up of the colored image. For some reason the colors look a little bright here - it's more subdued IRL!

Thanks so much for coming by today! If you leave me a comment I can come by and visit you too!

A Summer Snowman and a Shadowed Bloom

I made this Magnolia snowman card using Lauren Meader's Saturday Sketch seen here.
I just LOVE Magnolia stamps and this snowman is just so cute!! I used Prismacolor markers to color him and I paper pieced his scarf by stamping the scarf on the designer paper - cutting it out and attaching it over the image stamped on the white card stock

Paper: white: PTI, DP's - Basic Grey: archaic, The Paper Company: Starburst Translucent
Ink: onyx black Versafine
Accessories: foam dimensionals, Prismacolor Markers
I made this second card for the featured stamper challenge over at Split Coast. I had not visited Teneale's gallery before and she has some lovely cards there! I decided to CASE this pretty card. The things I changed: different stamp used, different colors of ink, ribbon and brads - I kept the design the same.

I used a flower from the new Plant Prints set from Artful INKables and stamped it once then again, a little to the right, without re-inking to give the shadow effect.


Kristin is offering 10% off all her Artful INKable stamp sets for the month of July - so be sure to check it out! Might as well save money while you're buying some fun stamps right??!!


We are enjoying our last day at the lake today - Here are a few pictures from our week here.

DH Kent and neighbors work on the lake right-of-way clearing the path and placing the boulders they pulled up against the road area to help stop soil erosion.

We got a scenic ride to the Marina on Kent's cousins Party Barge where we got some delicious ice cream.

A mother duck and her 6 ducklings come up on our cousins lawn every evening to pick up some easy food dropped from her bird feeders.
Thanks for coming by and have a great Sunday!

The Magic of Tilda

I was the host for this weeks Double Dare Challenge that I do with a small group of friends at Split Coast. For my challenge - I sent everyone this stamped image of Tilda by Magnolia Stamps as well as a piece of designer paper - some got this one from Stampin Up and some got a piece from PapertreyInk.

You could add anything else you wanted - you just had to use the image and the designer paper.

I cuttlebugged the card with the Polka Dot folder but you can only see one line of dots at top and bottom! I used the Gamsol method of coloring with watercolor pencils and you can see a Splitcoast tutorial for that here.

I just love these sweet Tilda's - they have her in many outfits, sometimes sitting, sometimes holding flowers or sweeping. Magnolia is a company in Sweden and you can see the European influence in their designs. There is a boy named Edwin and other characters as well. They also have flowers, benches, chairs, walls and I just saw a whole new summer line listed on their site today.

But back to my card...... I used my Petite Oval Nestabilities to frame Tilda and mounted the ovals with foam dimensionals. I added the pretty ribbon from PapertreyInk underneath the oval and tied a small piece in a knot around the flat piece. The sentiment is from PapertreyInk Favor It Baby set and I just stamped it in Onyx Black and punched it with my SU oval punch and mounted it with foam dimensionals.


You can see the other's Tilda cards here. They'll be loading them all week. There should be 9 of them when everyone is done.

Thank you so much for coming by today!
