Jewels and Gold!

Gingersnap Creations has a Color Challenge-Jewel tones plus Gold. Click here to see what it’s all about! I was going with a stained glass look to this card, and added gold glitter for the leading in between each piece. The stamps are from an Ippity set, Regal Greetings. I embossed the frame and sentiment with gold embossing powder, and the other small stamp I just used watermark ink.

Parts of our town got flooded today from all the rain and melting snow. No damage here, thank goodness. Down at the Ford dealership, the water was so deep, cars were floating away! Hope the rain holds off a bit. Hope the rest of you aren’t floating away!


Ippity Challenge!

Here is a card I made for the Ippity challenge at Splitcoast Stampers Forum! Anyone can enter, you just have to use Ippity Stamps!! Check their blog here for more info! I used two Ippity stamp sets on this one. Party Hat Wishes, and the sentiment from How You Doin. The daisy paper is from Sandylion. I used Palette Hybrid ink in Burnt Umber, and Stampin Up! ink in blush blossom. There is cotton candy stickles on it all, but doesn’t show up well in the pic. I used a spellbinders die for the fancy label. Got lots of snow today here in Ohio, so what better way to spend the day than in my craft room!! I’m going to see what else I can come up with today! Thank you for looking in!

CCC #33

This week at Linda’s StudioL3 blog we are using the Altered Metal Alcohol Inks technique. Click here to go see what it’s all about! This is my piece. Very plain and to the point. I got this metal stamping kit from my sister-in-law, and used the charm that came in the kit. I stamped ART into it, and used lettuce AI on it. Hung some beads from the bottom. I also inked the ball chain with cranberry AI. Sorry, but my heart just wasn’t into creating with metal this week! I think it’s the alcohol inks really, sometimes I just can’t get them to do what I want! You should really check out the other entries, the ladies have done some beautiful things with this technique! Thanks for stopping in!

March Ippity Workshop projects

Here are the projects we will be making for the March workshop! One is a treat gift bag, and the other a card. The stamp set featured is Ippity’s Totally Happy. The workshop is scheduled for Sunday, March 13th, from 3p.m.-5p.m. Hope some of you can come! I’ll be sending out an email!

Teeny Tiny!

June at Dezinaworld has the theme this week as Teeny Tiny for her spot prize challenge. This little Sizzix die box was the first thing that came to my mind. I pictured it with a bottle of stickles(because I’m pretty sure we all know how big, or small they are!) I added glitter, and stickles to the pattern of the paper, and micro beads to the flowers. I almost had to get the reading glasses out for this one, but I managed!! So this to me is Teeny Tiny! Click on the link above to go to her site and see all the other teeny things!!

Unity Stamp Company New Challenge!!

Unity Stamp Co. has a new month long challenge blog, and info is here. I made a twisted easel card, that I learned from my blogger friend Cheryl(thanks hun!). This one measures 4″x4″ when folded. The theme this month is hearts! I chose an Itty Bitty stamp that I won from the Ippity challenge, just perfect!! I went for a shabby chic style, adding some scrap fabric, and floral paper. The flowers of the stamp were colored in with chalks, and I used Unity’s Pallette ink for the stamping. The sentiment I embossed with UTEE. Some buttons, and an EK border punch finished it off! These are fun cards to make, as one blogger said, ‘addictive’!! Check Unity’s blog for more entries, and to enter yourself! A stamp set is the prize!! Now who wouldn’t love that?!!

CCC #32!!

This week at Linda’s blog, we are inking and stamping masks. Very fun and easy technique this one is. Click here to see her blog, and all the entries! I did a tag this week, and chose stamps that I have from Stampin Up! The sentiment is a Unity Itty Bitty. The colors I used were forrest moss, black soot, and vintage photo DI, and really rust from Stampin Up! I stamped my mask with stazon, on a scrap from a package, and my new thing to do with ribbon, heat it with my heat gun and crinkle it up, love that! Have to go check everyone’s beautiful work now! Thanks for stopping by!
