Card Full of Heart

 This is a Less is More card with a heart cut out in the front and made using the colors of Red, Pink, and White. I used a white card stock as the base and cut out a Scalloped Heart Frame of Red Card stock with Nesties Scallop Heart dies on the front and stamped a heart on the inside of the card with Flourishes "From the Heart"  stamp in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. I filled in the design with Memento Angel Pink Marker. I stamped the banner with sentiment from the same stamp set and inks.
I embossed the top of the front with Cuttlebug EF With Love EF. I also used other stamps from Flourishes from the same set and "Love Sweet Love" stamp set on the inside. Papers are from my paper stash.

Challenges:
Just Us Girls: Color challenge-Use red, pink, and white.

Say it in Yellow, Lime, and Turquoise











Happy Australia Day to my friends in Australia

 What a gloomy, cloudy, and cold day in Ohio! Thought these colors might brighten up the day!
Annabelle Stamps Blog has a color challenge this week and it's a bright and fun combo of yellow, lime, and turquoise.  I stamped this whimsical flower with Bamboo Leaves ink on white CS from the Annabelle's set Whimsey Flowers. I colored it with Copics G20,G21, Y02, Y06, and Y11 and trimmed and matted the image on an embossed mat of Lime Green CS and Yellow CS. Placed this on an embossed White CS and attached to the card base of Turquoise CS. Finished with a ribbon from stash and a sentiment from Annabelle's Dotted Flowers set. Added some Yellow Glitter Domes from my stash.  All CS was from my stash and used Cuttlebug EF Swiss Dots and Divine Swirls.
 The day seems brighter but the clouds are still outside.

One Stop Craft Challenge: Theme is under the weather. Cards can be either weather related or get well soon.

Missing You by the Fence


At The Pixie Cottage you can choose either a sketch shown on the left or the theme of embossing or combine both for their challenge. I decided to do both using The Pixie Cottage Stamp "Hannah at a Fence".  I colored her with Copics and placed the image on a mat of embossed paper and then onto a strip of pattern paper. This I adhered to the card base of Slate Blue which I embossed on the side with a border of flowers and colored the raised area. I added some dewdrops to the center of the flowers and added a sentiment stamped on a cut out .

Treat Box for Valentine's Day


Hello. I have just returned from a trip to Tennessee to be with my Mother for her 92nd birthday.  We all had a great time visiting and celebrating.  She is full of life and in good health and keeps us laughing with tales of her life ....she remembers everyone she meets and knows everyone's history including everything about everyone's life.

I have rushed to get an entry in for Timeless Tuesday's challenge to make make anything but a card, something like a treat box or bag or even a tag.  Since the Flourishes January Stamp Sets release was waiting in the mail for me last night (I still cannot believe I won it in last week's challenge and that it arrived so quickly), I decided to use one of these beautiful sets. I chose "From the Heart" stamps to create a box that I will fill with candy for someone...wonder who???
Made my box with White CS for the lid and Red CS for the bottom. I added a border of hearts using an EK Border Punch from the Red CS. I stamped a flourish and sentiment on the lid with Memento Rhubarb Stalk. Used the same ink to stamp the lovely ornate heart and the banner and sentiment which is popped up on the heart. Attached this to a red scalloped heart cut out with a Spellbinder die and attached this to a band of Heart Ribbon from my stash.  Now to find some candy.

Challenges:
Timeless Tuesday #152: Heather asked us to make anything but a card, something like a treat box or bag or even a tag to hold some yummy Valentine candy or chocolates!
Cupcake Craft Challenge: All you need is love.
TSG 140: Love is in the air....use hearts and love in a project.

Speedy Fun with a Punch and a Stamp


The challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge for  Week 90 suggested by Brenda is to use a border punch. I pulled out the Martha Stewart Double Loop punch and created this card using the "Peaceful Nuthatch" stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers. The nuthatch stamp is so much fun to color with Copics and I used my trusty bird book as a color guide. I used a neutral background to highlight the beautiful bird and used the layout from the Card Patterns Sketch 148. I finished with a twig of artificial evergreen snipped from a Christmas swag.

Challenges:
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge: Use a Border Punch
Card Patterns Weekly Sketch: #148
Scrap-Creations: Use diecuts. Used circle and scallop circle dies.

Supplies:

"Belle" of the Valentine Ball

 Welcome! If you have visited here before, you know that I love Teddy Bears and making cards with them. I am sharing a new stamp "Belle" which I won from Repeat Impressions. Doesn't she look like one of my fave bears "Beddy" shown in the photo below? I just had to have the stamp when I saw it. I made this Valentine for the Sketch Challenge at Repeat Impressions. I stamped "Belle" and colored her with Copics and then stamped her again on Red Texture CS to paper piece her hat and coat. Also stamped, colored and cut  the flower to pop on to her hat. Added some glossy accents to the flowers and her heart buttons. The card pretty much speaks on it own.

One-Layer Card with Heart

It has been so long since I did a One-Layer Card for a challenge! I was playing last night and decided to do one for Simplicity One-Layer Wednesday challenge  to use red and pink...and ONLY red and pink...on a white card base. Since I had this Scallop Heart die on my desk I used it to punch a template and just sponged some Ranger Distress Ink Barn Door and Spun Sugar on a White CS . Then I stamped the GKD Sentiment from "Fanciful Tags" at an angle on the side.  That was quick. 

Challenge:
Simplicity: One-Layer 74 Red and Pink
I enjoy all your visits. Thank you. Theresa

You've Got Mail with a Touch of Vintage

 
Closeup of Sentiment

I made this card 5.5' x5.5" which is a larger size than I usually do but I wanted to better use the pattern paper design from K&Company.  I printed this image "You've Got Mail" from Digi Doodle Shop and colored with Copics. Love the old fashion Morning Glory vine and flowers by the mailbox which has a vintage used  look.  After cutting the design with Spellbinders Label 4,  I sponged it with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks to give an aged look.  I placed on a small doily that I sponged the same. Placed this on a circle of gold CS to better show the design. Now back to this lovely pattern paper...think it has a great vintage look...I embossed it with Cuttlebug's Kassie's Brocade EF and the Border Dot  from With Love EF on the outer stripes in the paper. After placing the pattern on a card base of ivory (edged with the Antique Linen ink) I popped up the image with dimensionals and added a gold seam binding bow accented with a jeweled brad and small crochet flower.  The sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers "Happy Pansies" was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on a strip of the PP and attached. Thought this font had a vintage flavor.
Challenges:
Sugar Creek HollowDo vintage, shabby chic, or primitive card with embossing. Someday, I am going to figure out how to do a primitive one. This week Digi Doodle is a sponsor.
Party Time Tuesday: Use a feathered friend on your card. Digi Doodle is also one of the sponsors.
Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge: Use embossing.  Is this what is meant by killing two birds with one stone?

 I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

Boy, It's Cold Outside

 We have had snow the last few days and boy, is it cold outside....12 degrees as I post!!  Thoughts for this card have been inspired by the weather. Birds have been busy at our feeders and that made me think of this digital image "Birdie Chit Chat"  by Sassy Cheryl. This snowman is so cute and I colored it with Pencils and Markers...a switch from Copics. I cut him out with circle die and assembled the card following the sketch from the challenge at Sassy Cheryl's.

Challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps: Challenge is let it snow and a sketch on left.
Tuesday Throwdown: Challenge is "Baby, it's cold outside."

Flourishes Final Noon Challenge


Flourishes is having a limited supply challenge that revolves around 2012! Here’s the recipe: You can only use 2 colors. You can use 0 bling. You must use at least 1 embellishment and you can only have 2 layers (not including your card base)!
My colors are Red and White (guess I can use white as a color), the embellishment is ribbon (only used one and stayed with 2 layers...red mat and heart.  Sounds so simple but I had to think to stay within the rules. So hard not to add some pearls or gems. The ribbon has wired edges and metallic hearts woven in in case you think that the hearts are a bling.
Supplies:
Stamp: Flourishes "Cherry Blossoms"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rose Bud for sponging
Papers: White and Red Cardstock
Nesties Scallop Heart Die
Ribbon from stash...had this for a long time....save for special cards.
EK Success Corner punch
Cuttlebug EF Victoria
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

When the Champagne Is Gone.....

 
The champagne was very good New Year's Eve and my DH  saved the carton as  he just knew that I'd find some way to use it on a card.  And I did not disappoint him. I cut a section of the box and used below for this card featuring a black silhouette. I simply stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with a Black EP on the gold box.  Colored some buttons with paint, added some brads and braid and assembled all on a black CS following the sketch below.  The design in the box was great for this scene.
 Challenges:
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge: Week 89 suggested by Patty-" Use brads or eyelets".  Also used Stamps from Mark's Finest Papers.
Card Patterns: Sketch 147
Cards for Men:  Theme is recycling. Used section of a box..see top of post.

Will add sentiment or not when I use the card.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

I tried to make comments on all the challenge blogs but blogger did not let me. Thanks for all the inspiration from each.

Tired of Blogger Problems..Have They Got You Down???

Having Blogger Problems with making and reading comments? I too have had these problems. Seems Blogger  rolled out a number of improvements to Blogger recently on Jan 11th.  Blogger now supports threaded commenting but it seems to have caused problems for those of us whose setting for comments is "embed below post".  I changed my setting to have Comments show as "Full Page" and now I can again read the comments and do hope my readers can again comment.  I am posting this so that it might work for someone else having this problem.  Maybe Blogger will correct this soon. Fingers crossed.
If you have other information regarding this, please let meknow, that is if you can post to me now.

Have a good day despite OLD MAN BLOGGER. Thank you. Theresa

The Year of the Dragon Challenge

The first of Flourishes’ January Release Week Noon Time Challenges is to be inspired by the colors of this beautiful dragon with rich shades of red, orange and even pink. I decided to use this beautiful Pattern Paper from Teresa Collins' "World Traveler" pad since it has the rich colors and a somewhat Oriental scroll design. It's perfect for my card....a very simple design with the Sentiment (from Flourishes "Cherry Blossoms") as the focus. Used Nesties Label 4 to cut layers of Copper and Gold Metallic CS and topped with Sentiment on Soft Sand CS stamped in Versamark and embossed with Red EP. Attached to base card of the Soft Sand and tied with a gold rope ribbon.




 According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, which begins on January 23, 2012 and ends on February 9, 2013.


Thanks for visiting my blog today.
I love hearing from you.

Ring in the New Year and New Release


Flourishes is asking us to "ring in the new year with “Father Time” or “Baby New Year” – this challenge is a fight between new and old! To be in the running, simply use a card that showcases an image of time or one that showcases little baby new year i.e. a baby card. Either will get you in the running. The winner will receive all three sets that are a part of our January release! "  My card includes an image of time. I have used Flourishes "moments in Time" set for my entry card. The clock face is stamped with Versamark and embossed with Black EP on White Card stock. After cutting with Nesties circle die I mounted it on 2 circles of Gold Mettalic Card stock. I attached this to a mat of Red and Gold Pattern Paper from Teresa Collins' "World Traveler" mat. Love the richness of this paper. This was placed on a card base of Black Textured CS. Finished with the verse stamped on a cut out of the gold and a organdy ribbon with gold threads. Also added some gold touches to the clock with a gold brad and gold pen and around the mat with Pilot Gold Marker. (Maybe should make the sentiment a bit smaller...looks too big once I view it here?) Challenge is here.

Hope every minute counts today...time is a precious thing not to waste.

Thanks for dropping by today.
Theresa

What's New With You

Oh Happy Day! What's new with you today? What's new with me is playing with my new Cricut.

Sassy Ann at Sassy Cheryl's has a  challenge this week with a theme of "New Beginnings"... new home, new baby, new anything. It's your call.  I thought this challenge would be a good avenue to use those cutouts. I used Sassy's digi "Sally and Her Perfect Teddy Bear Gift" ( new digi to me) and colored her with Copics (received some new copics for Christmas that I used too). Layered with some new Pattern Paper and added the hearts and verse that I cut with new Cricut. Lot of newness here!
