Joy Clair Stamps - I am so Thankful!

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Hello everyone!

It's that time of year when we have so much to be thankful for....don't you just love this image created by Joy Clair Stamps called "Turkey Talk"?  I love how the turkey is pointing at himself and you can use different sentiments in the middle section.

Joy Clair stamps has a new challenge this month! As always it is "anything goes" but the design team has an inspirational photo. I hope you will join, the challenge runs all month and one lucky person has the opportunity to win a $25 gift card to the Joy Clair store.  You can find all the details here.

Here is my card I created and how I put it together for your inspiration.

My card is an A2 card, I cut a two layers and adhered them to my card, I die cut the center layer from a square stitched die and adhered it to my card.  I stamped the image and cut it with my scan and cut and colored it with copics.  I stamped the image again and fizzy cut the center out and stamped my sentiment.  I used foam tape to pop the sentiment on the turkey.


Closer look at the image.

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - A Warm Winter

Monday, November 12, 2018

Hello everyone!

I am here with Crackerbox & Suzy stamps to share with you a holiday card! I am writing this post while I am on a mini vacation in Florida, and I am definitely not ready for the cold raining and snowy weather.  It was 85 degrees here today and back at home tonight it is going to be in the low 30's.  I am not ready to go back home!

I am using three of the newly released Crackerbox & Suzy stamps on my card, the melting snowman is adorable, it is called Snowman Melting, the sentiments are sold separately, the "wishing you a" is called Wishing You and the "warm winter" is called Warm Winter Wishes.  The links to these stamps are below in the supply list.

Here is how I created my card:

I started with an A2 card, I then die cut the silver glimmer paper with a snowflake background die.  I then stamped the Snowman Melting stamp and colored him with Copics.  I then die cut him with a circle die and layered it with navy blue cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiments and cut them out and adhered everything to my card.  I added some nuvo black drops to the snowman to give it dimension. I added a snowflake to the snowman's hat that was leftover from the background snowflake die.

Retro Rubber Challenge Blog - Anything Goes #99

Tuesday, November 6, 2018

Hello everyone!

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, which is "Anything Goes"!  I love challenges with anything goes, because you can create anything you would like! I have created a fall/autumn themed card.

If you have not joined our challenges before, the rules are very simple, just use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. Here is the sketch for you to use. I cannot wait to see you take on it.

The stamp I used on my card is made by Deep Red stamps called Fall Leaves and was released sometime in September 2013.  This is totally a guess, I could not find it on their website on when the stamp was released, but I have had this stamp in my stash for lots of years!



Here is my card I created for the challenge.


My card is an A2 card, and I used watercolor paper and watercolor ink for the background.  I stamped the image on the background after it was dried.  The sentiment is from the same set. 

Are you ready to play along? Be sure to stop over on the Retro Rubber Challenge blog to get some more inspiration! Thank you for stopping by, you have until November 16th to join the fun!
