Damask Tags and a Flowery CASE

Hey dear friends - did you miss me for a few days?!?! I'm just been so busy this past couple of weeks with some church projects and Design Team work I don't know which way is up!! But it's a fun creative kind of busy! KWIM??
I did manage to get projects for the two Split Coast weekend challenges done. First for the inspiration challenge -Stephanie showed us a wonderful jewelry site, Destiny's Creations. I was inspired by these lovely silver embossed earrings
I silver embossed my Victorian Damask stamp by Rubbernecker onto silver cardstock. Then cut it with a Nestie label and added clear flowers, colored flowers and brads.

The silver cord is from my mother-in-laws ribbon box that I inherited and it's labelled "silver cloisonne thread".

These pretty tags also qualify for the Moxie Fab World challenge - Diggin' On Damask!

Stamps: Victorian Damask Panel #498 - Rubbernecker
Paper: silver - unknown
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: silver EP, hot gun, flowers - Taylored Expressions, clear flower - Heidi Swapp, scalloped tags - Spellbinders, brads - Blue - Making Memories - green - Basic Grey, silver cloisonne thread - Edna Williams

CherylQuilts is the featured stamper this week and I chose her pretty Bouquet of Thanks card to CASE. I used a different flower stamp and different colors. I love the way she punched the patterned paper with the lacey edge punch.

I used a deckled edge oval Nestie for my image and sponged the eges with Old Paper ink before taking it out of the die.

My daffodils are from Rubbernecker Stamps

I'm off to work on some more projects! The wonderful Waltzingmouse Sneak Peeks will be starting on Thursday 11/4 so be sure to stop by then!!

The Last of the Halloween Treats!

Hi, Dear Friends! I'm actually doing a lot of stamping but it's all Design Team stuff so I can't share it just yet! (it will all start on 11/4 so be sure to come by!) Wait 'til you see what Claire's coming out with next!!!

For now - I wanted to share a few of the treat containers I made for Halloween to sell at my church fair this past weekend that I hadn't posted here yet.

Decorating or making containers is one of my most favorite things to do - as you probably know if you come by to visit me at regular intervals!!

I got these cute little jars at JoAnn's for $1.oo each! They are about 2"x1" and I filled them with bat droppings (malted milk balls in this case!)

The stamps are Waltzingmouse - Wanda's Pantry and Midnight Feast.

Next - I totally, shamelessly copied these fun little houses from Steph I absolutely loved them when I saw them on her blog. (Thank you Steph!!!)

The template is Claire's and is available free at Waltzingmouse (Claire decorated it as a Gingerbread house). How clever of Steph to see a haunted Halloween house in it!!

I made mine so the bottom opens (didn't glue the tabs) - and I slipped a little bag of candy corn inside. The stamps are from Midnight Feast.

And finally - I got these fun pails at Target last year for $1 each (I almost forgot I had bought them - I had put them in my attic and found them 3 days before the fair!) So I quickly decorated them up!
The stamps are from Wanda's Pantry - the bats are Spellbinders, the ghost is Sizzix, the web ribbon is from Sharon's Stamp Simply Ribbon Shop and the saddle stitched ribbon is PTI. I drew eyes on the bats with a silver marker. (I know - bats don't have eyes - but they look more spooky with them!) So there you go - are you in the Halloween spirit now?!!! You've still got 2 days to make something!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Pics from the Fair and Two Challenges

Hello friends! I'm finally back after a very busy weekend working at my church fair -Yikes - I'm exhausted! I have a few pictures to share with you today.

Here's the main hall where we have the Candy Table, Baked Goods, Country Store, Knit Table, and the Stamped Cards and Crafts Table.
Here's all the delicious hand made candy - I bought my usual 1/2 pound of Cashew Turtles - Yum!!

These are some of the sweet little kids sweaters someone made and donated to the Knit Table.
Here's a view of my Stamped Cards/Crafts table.

In another hall on the first floor we have a Jewelry table and a Holiday Table.
Downstairs we have a book table - actually more like a book 'area' with great bargains - hardcovers cost 50 cents and paperbacks are a quarter!

On Friday night we have a pie social - and on Saturday there is a Snack Bar for lunch.

In another hall downstairs we have the ever popular White Elephant room (a polite name for 'junk'!!)
And seeing as I wasn't able to stamp all weekend - I just had to do a couple of the Split Coast challenges today!

My first project is for Joan's Try a New Technique challenge - to make a Christmas Ornament. She had several examples to inspire us. I wanted to try the double ball ornament - You can find the Tutorial in the SCS forum here

What a fun little gift tag this will make - and then the recipient can put it on their tree! AND it's quick and easy to make! You really need to try one! This also fits Kimme's Hope You Can Cling to challenge to use ribbon.

Stamps: none
Paper: Amuse
Ink: none
Accessories: pin & jewels - Mark's Finest Papers, wrinkled seam binding -

I made this card for the SCS Clean and Simple challenge - to use gingham or checks. It also fits Jessica's Hope You Can Cling To challenge - Sew Thankful for Friendship. To use some kind of stitching on your card.

I used gingham patterned paper from Amuse. The stamps are Waltzingmouse - the stitching stamp for my faux stitched borders is from Off Beat Backgrounds, the heart and sentiment are from Seasons of Love
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Seasons of Love, Off Beat Backgrounds
Paper: white - PTI, DP- Amuse
Ink: Ranger Distress Faded Jeans, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: heart button & silk ribbon - PTI, glue dot,

Thanks for coming by today - I'm off to bed - gotta try and catch up on my sleep!

Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch - WMSC20 Bravo!

Welcome to another Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch my friends! This week there is a trendy tag involved!
I turned the sketch on it's side for my card today
Another clean and simple interpretation for me. I used Musical Backgrounds and Fancy Phrases on my card today.

This also fits Lori's Hope You Can Cling To Challenge over on SCS - Bring in the Brown - to use brown as a central color. The dots on the patterened paper and the ink I used is brown.
Now you want to waltz over to the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created using this week's sketch.

Then make your own card using the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 10/28/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!! Sometimes Claire offers little random winner prizes too - you never know!

TE Blast from the Past Blog Hop - The Magic of Christmas!

I'm so excited to be participating in the Taylored Expressions blast from the Past blog hop again! This month we were to use any Christmas/Holiday TE stamps on our card.

I tried to create a night time Christmas Eve scene - using several hues of blue and clear embossing all the images so the details would show up in all the blueness. The house, moon and sentiment are popped up on foam dimensionals. I cut off the bottom half of the house to have room on my 4 1/4" x 4 1'/4" card for Santa flying overhead!
All my images are from the set Holiday Wonder.
I wanted to create the feeling of a late winter's night, with the cold crisp snowy woods when everyone in the house is sound asleep! Truly the magical time of Christmas.

Here are the links to all the people participating in this fun blog hop today! I know you'll find a lot of great holiday card ideas if you hop!

Momento Mori 6 Graveyard - Moxie Fab World

This is the spooky fun Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World. And this is the tag card I was inspired to make after seeing it!
The tree is a Sizzix die, the tombstones are a Martha Stewart punch and the stamps are from Waltzingmouse. The leaves are from Teeny Trees and the sentiment is from Midnight Feast. I sponged everything with Frayed Burlap and the tombstones are popped up on foam dimensionals.
My card also fits Victoria's Hope You Can Cling to challenge over on SCS - Walk on By - to make a card showing someplace you walk. Kent and I often walk through our town's cemetary although it's not quite as spooky as this!
I thought I wasn't going to be stamping this week - but I just got so inspired I had to make this card!!

Paper: Soft Stone, Vintage Cream, Smokey Shadow - PTI
Ink: Ranger Distress - Frayed Burlap, Scattered Straw, Old Paper, Memento Tuxedo Black

Friends of WMS Blog Waltz - Autumn Harvest

Welcome dear stampers to the October Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz - this month's theme is Autumn Harvest.

The waltz is run through the WMS forum in the Playroom - so go check it out and sign up if you haven't alreadydone so , then you can join along!
For my Happy Harvest card today, I dry embossed a circle Nestability on the front of my card. (you can see my little tutorial on how I did this on my post here.) Then I gold embossed this beautiful fall wreath inside the circle and the sentiment in the corner. Both stamps are from the WMS set Peace and Plenty. A must have set for this time of year!

I colored the wreath with copics and sponged the edges and the circle with Old Paper Ranger Distress ink. To finish off this clean and simple card, I adhered 3 buttons in the top corner - one tied with a thin silk ribbon!

As always there is a contest going on in the forum and one lucky correct guess to the question will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Red is a very common autumn harvest color - but I didn't use it on my card today.

Now I'm off to see what everyone else who's waltzing with us this month has created!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Peace and Plenty

Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI

Ink: Versamark, Ranger Distress - Old Paper

Accessories: glue dots, copics: YG03, E33, E59, YR04, Y17, hot gun, gold embossing powder, circle Nestabilities, blending tool & nonstick craft sheet - Ranger, vintage buttons and narrow silk ribbon - PTI, one button from my stash.

Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch WMSC19

Happy Saturday dear friends! Don't weekend days feel wonderful?! and to top it all off - Claire has a fun new sketch for us! An easy peasy one that we can do simple or all embellished!
I went the clean and simple route today. I printed a piece of Waltzingmouse Celtic Squares Digital paper for my base. Then I stamped the sentiment from Irish Blessings directly on the paper. I cut the shamrocks with the smallest Nested Egg nestability, embossed and sponged it and added a little gem to each one - not sure if that shows up or not on my pic....?

I wrapped some baker's twine around twice, tied a bow and adhered the shamrock with foam dimensionals - oh - and I sponged the edges of the patterned paper which sort of turned up the corners!

My card also works for the SCS challenge HYCCT05 - to use twine.

You know the drill by now! - go check out the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created this week!

Then make your own card using the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 10/21/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!! Sometimes Claire offers little random winner prizes too - you never know!

ETA: this week one lucky sketch card post will win the fun WMS stamp set Rescue Remedies!!!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Irish Blessings

Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI, Waltzingmouse Celtic Squares Digital Paper.

Ink: Ranger Distress - Black Soot, Bundled Sage, Forest Moss.

A Sophisticated Lady

It's finally Friday dear friends!! I was happy to see Alimarbles as the Featured Stamper over at Split Coast a week ago - we are from the same neck of the US woods! I chose her lace and glitter card to CASE.

I used a different sophisticated girl - mine is from Rubbernecker and her name is Giselle! I used browns instead of blues and greens and used a punch for my lace edge.

A funny story - I put two half pearls on my lady (ear and pocketbook) before running it through my Cuttlebug with the rectangle nestie (by mistake!) and it squished them flat and they look silver instead of pearly - which is how I left them on my card! so if you ever wondered........!

I sponged the edges of my image after cutting & embossing it with the Nestie but before taking it out of the die.

Just a reminder that there is a Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog hop going on in the WMS forum on 10/17 - click on the apple on my right side bar to see all the details!

Oh and I just have to share! - I was so excited to find out I'd won a Moxie Fab Alert! for my "Fancy a Cuppa" Holiday Container that I made from an empty frosting tub! Whoo hoo!

A Halloween Party & Wet Paper Stamping!

Happy Hump Day dear friends! I'm working on four challenges with my little pumpkin card today!

1) The SCS CAS challenge Inspiration word is Crinkle - I always hear the crinkle of the fall leaves when kids come around trick or treating.

2) Sara's SCS Hope You Can Cling To is to use something old and something new - I forgot I had my ghost Sizzix die - it was in the bottom of my rack and I hadn't used it for a few years. My Nestability Bat is brandy new!

3) The SCS Tuesday Teapot Challenge is to bring a Halloween party to Jacob - a little boy presently having chemotherapy. - so my pumpkin, ghost, bat and spider will be in the mail to him!

4) The Shabby Tearoom Week #31 is a photo of a pumpkin patch - to be inspired by the color orange as well as the pumpkins.

The stamps are from the Halloween Party set by Waltzingmouse.

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Halloween Party
Paper: pumpkin pie - SU, Smokey Shadow, white - PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress - Rusty Hinge, Stormy Sky
Accessories: Pumpkin and bat nestabilities, sizzix ghost die, blending tool & nonstick craft mat - Ranger, foam dimensionals, rhinestone stickers - Michaels

I made this card using the SCS new technique challenge Joan had for us this week - Wet Paper Stamping! You swipe over watercolor paper with a wet paper towel - stamp an image in a light color - dry the paper - then stamp over the image again using a darker ink. It looks like a shadow!

The image and Crown Oval Nestability framing are so pretty - I didn't need a sentiment - which qualifies my card for the SCS Joan's Hope You Can Cling to challenge - unsentimental.

My stamps are Victorian Damask background and Floral Silhouette both from Rubbernecker.

Thanks for dropping by today!

Just a reminder to check out the Waltzingmouse Sketch on Saturday! and there's a friend's of Waltzingmouse blog waltz coming up on Sunday (check my side bar) - a very busy stamping weekend! Hope to see you there!

Love is a Beautiful Thing

Hello dear friends! Happy Columbus Day!

There is a month long challenge going on over at Split Coast Stampers. Every day in October there is a challenge for creating a card. And, if you care to, all the cards you create can be sent to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center to be either sent to, or used by, the Cancer Patients and their families. How wonderful is that! They call the challenges "Hope You Can Cling To".

So here are two cards I created so far. The challenge for this one was issued by Bev (Texasgrammy) and was to use flowers - with an extra challenge to make your own. I made my flowers out of mulberry paper. (you can see a tutorial on making the flowers here)
I CASE'd the sketch from SCS featured stamper Jenn's gallery - her bokay card

Stamps: Rubbernecker - Create a Garden Set #512, Garden Phrases Set #508
Paper: white, dark chocolate - PTI, mulberry Paper, DP Indian Summer Basic Grey Paper pack
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Tea Dye, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint
Accessories: pearls - Kaiser, Copics: YG95, E11, E13, E19, Foam dimensionals, Scotch Quick Dry adhesive

My second card was a challenge issued by Cindy (Mothermark) to make a square card and use at least 3 squares total on your card.

My card is a square, my DP's are squares (ok - some of them have curvy edges but they are still equal sided!) And my sentiment is 4 squares side by side!! Even my button is a square!
The color of the cardstock with my sentiment on it really does coordinate with the patterned papers - it looks off color in the pic!! I white embossed the sentiment/image which is from Rubbernecker
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today! I'm enjoying a day off from work - Kent and I are going for a hike on this beautiful New England fall day! What will you be doing today??
Stamps: Rubbernecker - From the Heart - Love Block #246-02

Some Exciting News!

I'm thrilled to announce that I have been chosen to be a member of the newly created PSA Stamp Camp Design Team! You can read the announcement here on the stamp camp blog, and read more about PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps here.

I find myself on a team with a couple of my blogging buddies - Jennfer and Carly - as well as many new acquaintances. Libby is still announcing all the members over at her blog.

Here are the projects I submitted as my application for the design team and they were posted on the Stamp Camp Blog on October 5th to celebrate World's Teacher Day.

I made these magnets stored in a little tin using the set PSA - Super Star. The circles are mounted to a magnet sheet (I used my Krylon Machine with the magnet/laminate cartridge) so these can be used to hold those 'ever so special' school papers that come home every day on your fridge for all to see!
I even stamped on the twill I adhered around the box. The tin is from Papertrey Ink.
For my second teacher project I decorated a purchased First Aid kit that I got at the Dollar Store.
I used the PSA set Hello Kitty - School Days for the image - the heart circle framing is from the PSA set - UBU Dress Up. I used my Brother Label maker for the sentiments, added some papers to cover the label and tied a bow!

Here's what came in my little kit. Perfect for teacher to have on hand for all those little 'boo boos' that happen during the school day.

My last project was decorating a purchased note pad. I got this on sale at Staples for $1.oo (!) It already had all the M&M's printed on the cover.

Again - I used the PSA Hello Kitty School Days set. (the sentiment is Papertrey Ink)

So there you have it - some easy, fun gifts for teacher!
You can buy PSA stamps on line or at stores near you .

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you are having Columbus Day off tomorrow - I do (Yippee!) - and I know there will be some extra stamping going on in my craft room!!! How about you???

WMS Saturday Sketch #18

First, I'd like to thank everyone that commented on my new release posts this week - I so appreciate all your thoughts about Claire's wonderful new stamps!

Well, I wasn't sure I had another card in me after the WMS new release! But, of course, Claire's great sketch got the better of me - when can we stampers ignore a good challenge, right??!!

So, as you can see - I went really literal - as I often do with inspirations! - and made my card of three trees, an embossed border - and the sentiment HERE !! LOL!!

My cute star-strung trees are from Teeny Trees and the sentiment is from the newly released set Frame It. I inked them with 3 green Ranger Inks - Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive and Bundled Sage. I made a version with sponged edges and a red bird - but I didn't like it - tore it up and made it over CAS - clean and simple - like trees in the forest in a blinding blizzard! LOL!

So - now go check out the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created this week!

Then make your own card using the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 10/14/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!! Sometimes Claire offers little random winner prizes too - you never know!

I've also entered this card into the Moxie Fab Christmas Card Challenge!

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

WMS October Release Design Team Blog Waltz

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse October Release Design Team Blog Waltz! You'll want to start the waltz at Claire's blog to be sure you don't miss anything!

If you came here from Lisa's blog then you are in the right place!

I made another 'set' for my post today - a Christmas card and a coordinating gift package. I used stamps from 4 of the new sets for my projects. Big Bloom - Poinsettia, Compliments of the Season, Holiday Labels No. 14 and Text It.
I stamped the poinsettia twice on vintage cream card stock, embossed it in gold, then sponged it. I cut out the inside portion and layered it over the full stamping with foam dimensionals. I drew the framing around the card with a brown Micron 01 fine tip pen. Then I added the strip of lace and sticky half gold pearls to the center and the snowflakes. The bar under the sentiment is from Holiday Labels No. 14
Here is a picture of how I stamped the sentiment, lining up section below section of stamping. It's so easy to do with clear stamps!
And here's a pic of how I sponged the edges using my blending tool and nonstick craft sheet by Inkssentials/Ranger. You roll in from the nonstick craft sheet onto the card stock and just keep applying the ink with a circular motion. I made my gift container from an empty Laughing Cow Cheese Box - you can see a little more detail on how I did this on my previous blog post here. The snowflakes and sentiment are from Compliments of the Season.

Here's the treat I put inside my container - caramel Dove candies! Yummy, yum! I also lined the inside with some designer paper just to give it that finished look!

Now off you waltz to see my oh so talented, fellow DT member, Anya's blog!
Don't forget to leave comments as you waltz along - two commenters will win a WMS stamp set - one from Claire's blog and one from comments left on a Design Team members blog - which one? We don't know! You have until 11:59 PM EST on 10/9 to leave your comments!
Be sure to go shopping at the Waltzingmouse Store too!
