~LOVE~

It's Digital Tuesday and the challenge this week is a color challenge:  Black, Red and White!

I went with a beautiful red rose from Fred, She Said Digital Designs.  I fussy cut the pre-colored Corner Rose image and placed it on a punched panel.  This beauty comes pre-colored in SEVEN colors...it's a very versatile set!

The punch is a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page set, embellished with a spellbinders die cut from the Twisted Metal set.  The pearls are from Prima as is the black lace.

Love is an unknown unmounted stamp and the metal embossed strip may be by Magenta.
We hope you join in the fun...check out the other challenge cards...and enter for a chance to win some FREE images!

More Whimsy!

I have some more Whimsy for you today for One Crazy Stamper.  I got all excited the other night and made this card before I realized that we had a sketch for our Crazy Whimsical Blog Hop!  No matter...I will share my first creation today!
I used May Arts ribbon, a touch of piercing and some Candi to embellish my card. 
I colored the Spring Zebra image with the following Copic Markers: W7, W5, W3, E44, E43, E41, YG17, YG03, B45, B41, Y38, R85, R83, R81.

This set comes with a variety of sentiments...so you can customize your message to your recipient!

I used the following Copic Markers:  W7, W5, W3, B21, B0000, R83, R81, E40.

I added a wintery touch to the heart by adding a snowflake and embellishing it with some Candi!

Our Craft Lounge - Heart Felt Challenge

This is one of two posts today....so be sure to scroll for more inspiration!



This week's Our Craft Lounge Challenge is a Heart Felt one!   Check out the details on the OCL blog!

For my fabric, I upcycled!  That's just so much more fun to say than recycled!  The heart is the silky fabric lining of a man's tie!  We bought a gaudy orange tie at Good Will to cut up and shred for a pirate's belt for a school project.  The lining was this fabby fabric, and I loved the color scheme, so though my hubby rolled his eyes at me, I tossed it on my stamping desk...not knowing what I would do with it....but it was just pretty!

I used a heart punch in the center of a Spellbinders' Fleur De Lis Square Die.  I used the heart to frame my tiny fabric scrap!  Found some perfectly matchy-matchy papers in my scrap drawer...and some more perfectly fun ribbons in my ribbon scraps. 

I finished the card off with a sentiment from the Say It With Flowers set.  I love the font of this set!

CropStop Challenge: Time!

Yikes!  Time slipped away on me today....teaching a stamping workshop with sweet friends! 

It's time for a new CropStop Challenge:  Time! 

I knew I had the perfect piece of designer paper in my stash....I simply added a bit of color to m'lady with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink. 

I stamped the sentiment with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Flower is by Prima and hardware is from Tim Holtz's collection. 

We'd love to see your interpretation of TIME!  Play along for a chance to win a prize!!

Boys, Birthdays and Baseball!

Howdy!  I have a simple birthday card for iCopic for a little baseball buff!  I went with a sweet LaLa Land image called Baseball Luca.  If you are a LaLa Land buff...there are 70 images available in the store and this one is ON SALE!!

I colored my little man with the following Copic Markers:  E44, E43, E42, E59, E57, E55, E37, E35, E21, E02, E00, B99, B97, B95, R89, R59, R29, 0 Colorless Blender.  For his hat I was going for a sueded cotton like some of the nicer hats are...so after shading I stippled it with my colorless blender to add the suede texture.

Just a simple card to wish a little boy a happy birthday!

A New Beginning!

It's Digital Tuesday...and this week our challenge is New Beginnings!   My mind turned to spring...my favorite season of the year.  I love seeing all of the new life springing forth from what appears to be barron and dead. 

This image is an older PSX image that is colored with colored pencils.  I framed my image *outside the box* and cut around parts of the image so that it would fit on my punched panel.   The punched panel is a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page set which I embellished with some yellow gems.

The sentiment is a digital sentiment from Designed2Delight's Beautiful Life set.

Chillin' With My Friends ~ Shaker Card Tutorial

Today I'm sharing a tutorial on Shaker Cards for One Crazy Stamper. 

For my card I used Chillin' With My Friends stamp set from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.



Scor-Tape, Copic Markers, Glitter.

My tip:  Recycle acetate from your packaging for your windows!
Tip #2: Angling the tape in the corners helps reduce the amount of glitter used and helps seal your seams so you don't sprinkle glitter when you shake your card!

I attach my taped layer over my image panel/glitter on a craft mat to avoid things sticking where they should not stick!  

Then simply finish your card as you wish!  I embellished my card with a Martha Stewart Icelandic Snowflake Punch.

With Special Thoughts of You~

I have a clean and simple card for The Rubber Cafe today, perfect for letting someone know that you care. 

I used the Large Poinsettia in a different way....I colored it purple and to me it's a Clematis for this card!  I stamped it with tone-on-tone ink for my background paper and then accented my blower petals with Copic Marker BV000.  It fades away to almost nothing...but I like the subtle shaded look.
Next I used One and Only Tape in two ways on this card....first to tape down my Spellbinders Fleur De Lis border and next to add a touch of You're So Fine Glitter in Purple Rocks along the top of my card.  I added some Candi from the Lavender and Lace collection to my die cut with Candi Fix.
I added a touch of glitter to the Special Thoughts Outline stamp with a lavender copic spica glitter pen.  I stamped the Small Poinsettia and colored it with the following Copic Markers: BV04, BV02, YG95, YG93, Y38, Y35.  I fussy cut my image and used the One and Only Tape to adhere it to my card.
My final embellishment is a Martha Stewart butterfly punch embellished with some gems.

Prickley Pear Valentine Release!

Today I'm sharing some of the new Valentine Release cards.  We have had some family responsibilities these days....so I did not make the blog hop with these....but stamping is my therapy and I had fun working with these images this week!

My first card features the Steampunk Drifter image.  I colored the image with the following Copic markers:  W7, W5, W3, W1, E49, E47, E44, R85, R83, R81, RV93. 

I framed my image with a simple pierced border.  The designer paper is from BoBunny's Enchanted Collection.  I colored some of the flourishes with Copics to coordinate with my image.

My second card features the adorable Duck in Tub image.

I colored the image with the following Copic Markers:  W7, W5, W3, E49, E47, E44, YG67, YG17, B00, YR16, Y38, Y35, Y32. 


I decided to go with the Cracked Glass Technique on this image for a more vintage feel.
I colored my image, then covered the image with Versamark ink and some Ultrathick Embossing Enamel and heated the image.  I repeated this process 5-6 times and then placed my image in the freezer between two bags of tomatoes.  This keeps the image from curling up too much when it freezes.   After about five minutes I took the image out and carefully cracked it for the cracked glass effect.  I did not add additional ink to my cracks...I didn't want too much of a grunge feel since I was making this into a baby card.

The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of The Party Collection.  The letters are American Crafts stickers that I colored with my Copics and embellished with coordinating gems.

Peony Love!

This is one of two posts...so scroll for more floral inspiration!
Last Tuesday's Digital Tuesday Challenge was to Punch It!  I was all on the ball and combined my card with SCS's Clean And Simple Challenge, which is to use Die Cuts.  Well...excepting I made my card with a McMahon Five Designs image that wasn't going to be released until this week!  Epic Fail!

I used the gorgeous digital image from McMahon Five Designs called Peony Love.  I colored my image with five Copic Markers:  E42, YG93, BG0000, R21, R20.  I fussy cut the image and added some Art Institute Glitter 162. Juicy Fruit to the heart. 

My background embossing is a SU! Sizzix die.  The punch is a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page set.  The butterfly punches are also a Martha Stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch.

I still love my card...is that peony gorgeous or what?!

Spring Fever!


It's snowing here today....and little Spring Kaela from Designed2Delight just popped into my head!

I colored her up with Copic markers and fussy cut her leaving a narrow border. 

The sentiment is from Penny Black and is stamped on a panel that is punched using a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page Set.

Digital Tuesday Romance Challenge

This is one of two posts today, so be sure to scroll for  more inspiration!
First off...I want to congratulate this week's blog candy winner for commenting on my posts:

Ruza's Craft Corner said...
Great card! Those chickadees are adorable, and you did a great job coloring them! ;o)

Please email me and I will send you some fun mail! Thanks for the love you leave on my blog!

Next...it's Digital Tuesday...and that means a new challenge....and this week it's Romance!!

I went with some digital roses from Designed2Delight's Beautiful Life set.  I colored the roses with Copic markers and fussy cut them.  I wove them into the Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch and embellished with a row of tiny gold nailheads. 

The verse is from Wordsworth and the designer paper from BasicGrey.

And finally, Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog is looking for several new design team members.  So, if you enjoy our weekly challenge, why not give our team a shot?!  No prior design team is required...just a desire to play along with us!  Good Luck!

Valentine Fireworks!

This is one of two posts today, so be sure to scroll for more inspiration!
I'm sharing a fun little card for iCopic today.  I colored up Blush Bonnie from The Greeting Farm
Since the area of her clothing is so small...I used the 0 Colorless Blender to add a fabric-like texture.  Her dress and socks are all one color... RV17.
I stamped my sentiment from SP&Co's Candy Hearts set and then ran my card through the Xyron machine and covered the front of it with some You're So Fine glitter.

The Spellbinders die has been sprayed liberally with Fireworks in Lilac Posies for some added glimmer.

I embellished my Candi embellishments and her hairpiece with some tiny Stampendous heart stickers. 

Bonnie herself is fussy cut and popped up on foam tape for added dimension.

Other Copics used:  0, W7, W5, E11, E02, E00, R02, E59, E57, E55.

Happy Tuesday!

Designed2Delight Card Duo for Him and Her!


I have two cards for you today featuring images from Designed2Delight.  The first is using the image Catch of the Day.  I colored my image with Copic Markers.  For my background I used up some paper scraps from BasicGrey's Archaic collection.  I don't throw my scraps away...and it always tickles me when I can make a fun card using bits and pieces!   You could easily make a whole set of these, and each would be original depending on the scraps and your mosaic layout!


Birthday sentiment is by A Muse.

My second card is for a *her*....I used Ladybug Balancing Act image which I colored with Copic markers.  I paired it up with My Mind's Eye's Lime Twist collection and an A Muse birthday sentiment.

I used Candi to embellish both of my cards.  It's a good thing Candi is calorie-free....as it sure seems to make it onto a LOT of my cards lately! 

Be sure to pop by the Designed2Delight Blog today...and see what the other DT members have been up to!

Nerd At Heart!

Time for a new challenge on the Our Craft Lounge blog...and this week our challenge was to use NUMBERS on our cards!   I went with Our Craft Lounge set Love Potion...and Love Potion #9!

I colored my image to match some designer paper scraps I had handy...I wanted a different twist from the usual red and pink, so I went with pink and orange!   Copics:  YR09, YR04, BG10, RV69, RV66, RV63.

That Nerd at Heart sentiment just makes me grin...guess that makes me one, eh?!

CropStop Challenge ~ Quotations


This week's challenge for CropStop is to use quotations in our creations!

I have a COUPON CODE for my blog readers:  CTMP-2 saves you 10% on ANY sized order!  Enjoy!

I used a Picasso quote by Inkadinkadoo and framed it with the fabulous Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents die.  I cut the die out of some coated pearlescent cardstock for extra texture and shine. 

I wanted an *arty* background for my quote, so I used the polished stone technique with.  It is super-easy to do...use Ranger alcohol inks or Copics Various Ink Refills and a touch of Tim Holtz Adirondack Silver Mixatives.  Apply the inks to white glossy cardstock with the Ranger Alcohol Ink Applicator and felt.  Use Ranger's Alcohol Blending Solution to achieve your desired effect.

I embellished my quote with a rosette which you can create with a Gluber as your base.  I scalloped some blanket binding and created my fluffy flower.  A vintage button and some Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches finish my card perfectly.

More Winter Wishes!

I had Our Craft Lounge set Winter Wishes on my desk yet....so I decided to make one more winter card with it using the OCL color challenge this week. 

This time I added some Prima Pearls that have a silver tint rather than clear.  I paired it up with Candi and a SU! embossing folder and bird punch.  

I left the card with no sentiment....so it can be used for anything! 

We are finally supposed to get SNOW in Wisconsin tomorrow!  It's been such a warm/dry winter, and yesterday's near 50* has given me some major spring fever!

Best Friends


Another iCopic post...it's Tips and Tricks Tuesday and I have two little tricks for you today.

Trick #1 - I'm a *flicker* sort of girl!  For the hair on my little ladies today I started by flicking the darkest colors, then the medium colors and then just did a slight blend for their hair.  I wanted the textured look for their lucious locks!

Trick #2 - fussy cutting is quick and easy and I find myself doing it on many of my images.  To get a smooth line when cutting, turn your paper, not your scissors.  I take lots of tiny straight cuts on the more detailed areas of the image.  Pop your image up on foam and it adds great dimension to your project!

This image is Best Friends by SWALK/Crafter's Companion. Ashley had GREAT prices on these right now...check it out!
Bench: E44, E43
Skin: E02, E00
Brunette:  E59, E57, E55
Blonde:  E35, YR24, Y21
Dresses:  R22, R21  and B45, B41

Sentiment is by SP&Co and designer papers are from iCopic as well!  Check out the fabby selection!

iCopic Blue Challenge - Juliet in the Nasturtiums

This is one of two posts today, so be sure to scroll for more inspiration!
This week's iCopic challenge is a color one....pull out those B copics and show us some blue coloring!

We have had such an unseasonably warm winter this year....so I decided to think spring!  Juliet in the Nasturtiums is from Stampavie's Sara Kay collection.  I colored her with the following Copic Markers:

B97, B95, B45, B21, YG17, YG03, G20, YR24, Y21, E44, E43, E35, E02, E00, 0

For Juliet's top I highlighted it with the B21 marker and then blended it a bit with the 0 Colorless Blender.

I framed my image with Spellbinder's Labels Twenty die , a few prima flowers and Candi centers. 
The border punch is by Martha Stewart.

There is a $15 gift certificate to iCopic up for grabs....so if you have a moment, you may wish to play along for your chance to win it!   Good Luck!

Ellie's Warm Winter Wishes

This is one of two posts today, so be sure to scroll for more inspiration!
I just had to color up Ellie Loves to Knit from Your Next Stamp again!  You can find Ellie and lots of her pals at One Crazy Stamper.

I colored her up with Copic Markers and then cut her out leaving a small narrow border.  I matched her to the KaiserCraft collection called Bubblegum Hills.  This collection is fun because it has fun die cut borders such as the one on the bottom of this card.

My embellishment on this card is a snowflake rosette made with Honeycomb paper from Inky Antics.  Lora has some on the way....so be sure to keep your eye peeled!  This stuff is fun, both in it's traditional use on HoneyPop cards and as fun borders and rosettes such as this!

There will be two opportunities to win ~ on the Our Craft Lounge blog (the normal monthly drawing for a $20 gift certificate) & a $20 gift certificate for OCL from the Lily Pad Cards blog!

Recipe for Friendship!


Busy days here working on Inky Antics' deadlines...so thought I would share a previous Inky Antics project. 

This is an altered recipe box with a coordinating Friendship Recipe. 
Inside I decorated the lid with a vintage cookie cutter.  This is an oversized box, so there is room for the cutter to stay in if desired. 

I'm still taking guess on how many projects I completed in 2011...check out yesterday's post to give your guess!  One guess per day per person until Monday!!  Good Luck!!

Happy New Year!


Wishing you a Peaceful and Healthy and Happy 2012!

I have a clean and simple card for you today using Rubber Cafe products.  I've been waiting on using the Warren and Frosty image until we had snow here in Wisconsin...and it sounds like we might get a whopping 3 inches tonight!  I haven't minded a snowless winter as far as the roads go...but my kids are itching for some snow to romp around in!

I colored my image with Copic Markers and framed it with a simple pierced border.  I kept the embellishments simple and monochromatic with a touch of Candi to finish them off.

Copic Markers: E44, E43, E42, E41, YR16, YR15, R39, R37, B45, B41, BG10
