Have a Sunshiney Day

Miss Tilda is holding a cupcake just for you! I hope you like it. She's wishing everyone a shunshiney day today.

We have been very fortunate to have some cloud cover recently that brought our temps from 105 down to 95; Funny when you go outside at 95 degrees and think it's cooler. But the clouds were great and we managed just a little rain too!

Hug Me!!!

Here's one of the DoodleFactory stamps that I got today. His name is Tobias. I think he's so cute and I can certainly relate to that look. Don't we all have days like that sometimes?

I paired him with a cute vellum sentiment that says HUG ME! Wouldn't it be nice if people would just give us a hug sometimes? Next time you see someone with this look, go give them a hug!

Project Materials:
Cardstock (DCWV), Printed Papers (unknown); Stamp (Tobias-DoodleFactory); Color (Derwent Inktense);

Good news!

Just got a notice from Sweet Pea stamps that I will be on their new design team! I can't wait to get my stamps and start making some fun stuff. I love their new Gum Drop Gang and the cute Sweet Pea Pals. Watch for these on my blog.

Also--my package from Starving Artistamps is here!! WooHOO. The Doodle Factory stuff is so cute. I am going to go stamp some up right now. Keep your eye on the blog tonight and hopefully a new card will appear featuring one of these cuties.

Have a Honey of a Day!

Here's an adorable bear stamp from Penny Black. He's so sweet huh? I paired him with a cute saying from Stampin' up and some bee decor from Stampassions.

Since I have a sister named Honey, sayings like this always have a double meaning in our household.

Project Materials: Cardstock (card-Bazzill; Other-DCWV); Stamps (Bear-Penny Black; Saying-Stampin' Up; other-Stampassions); Flowers-(Prima); Brads (large-Basic Grey; other- Bo Bunny); Ink (Bear-Versafine; Bees-Versamark; Saying-Vivid!); Coloring (Derwent Inktense pencils, Blender- Stampin' Up);

I give a hoot!

Here's another example of a cute but very simple flat card. Seems like the post office is getting pickier about embellishments on the cards. This challenges me to make sweet cards that are very flat that I can mail out.

So, what do you give a hoot about? I give a hoot about a lot of things including stamping!! Other things I give a Hoot about: my husband, my family, my church, my online stamping buddies, my about you?

All Things are possible

I love the saying on this card. It reminds me that things are never hopeless. It's easy to get bogged down in this world and feel that way sometimes, huh? I really like this angel design from CC Designs. She came in a set with all her heavenly friends.

Hope you are having a great day today! Tonight I am off to a concert with my DH, but today I am gonna sit down and do some crafting. Sounds like a great day is ahead.

Gothic Girl

Here's Sugar Nellie's Little Goth Girl from the Gorjuss Girls collection. The Prima flowers are priceless, can you believe they have flowers with skulls on them? they are actually so cute since they match the hair pin of the girl.

Got lots of great things done today including stopping by the University art store to pick up a couple more Inktense pencils. I got Chili Red, Ionian Green, Peacock blue, Red Violet and Baked Earth. They are all nice earthy tones that go together well and will also compliment the colors I already have. Generally when buying pencils in the beginning, I like to get two complimentary shades, i.e. two shades of red, two shades of blue....and so forth. That allows one shade for coloring and at least one color for shading. I often use more than one color when shading an image, but when starting to build up supplies I get two of any particular color.

Project Materials:
Cardstock: Bazzill; Stamp: Gorjuss Girls-Sugar Nellie; Flowers: Prima; Brads-Making Memories; Color: Derwent Inktense; Copic Marker: E00;

P.S. don't forget to vote for your favorite card of the week in the column to the right!!

A Smile that bursts

A Laugh is a smile that Bursts. That's the sentiment on this Stamping Bella card.

The new week is here! I hope your weekend was great. I have started a new poll on the right hand column to pick a card of the week for last week. I hope you will take a second and vote for your favorite card. The voting helps me narrow down the topics and styles that people want to see. Please go and vote for your favorite. I have also added sentiment under each card. You don't have to add comments to select how you feel about the card, but your comments are welcome.

She's a Star!

Here's my little star! She's one of the new Gorjuss girl stamps from set 3. She's holding a star of her own with adorable little star shaped barrettes.

I love the contrast of the blue and yellow in this card. I think the partial blue background makes the blue coloring in the dress stand out. I don't have a large star die cut, in this case I simply used a pen to lightly draw a star on the back of a piece of cardstock and then cut it out. Flipped it over and glued it to the card. I used a souffle pen to outline the star and the remnants from the cutout to give the edges some interest. This is another example of a very flat card that would get past the post office without complaints.

Card (Bazzill); Carstock (DCWV); Stamps (Gorjuss Girl-Sugar Nellie; Saying-Hero Arts); Ink (Versafine); Color (Derwent, Crayola watercolor pencils); Souffle White pen; Copic Marker E00

Just Being Myself

This pretty girl is wading in a pool of cool water. Ahhh, wish I had a pool to wade into right now. We are approaching 17 days of 100+ degree weather here in Austin. It has been an unseasonable hot summer this year with a notable lack of rain.

For now I guess I will settle for staying in my nice cool house. I am posting this project a little early today as I have been having tons of headaches and need to lay down. If I wake up feeling better you might get a bonus project today. Check the blog again later :)

Project Materials:
Cardstock (Bazzill); Flowers (Prima); Skittles (hand dyed); Stamp (Gorjuss Girl - Sugar Nellie); Colors (Derwent); Ink (Versafine); Plastic saying w/Glitter (K & CO)

Here's a vision in green featuring MissMatch KETTO from Stamping Bella. It uses 2 colors of green cardstock, 2 colors of green ribbon and 2 sizes of velvetly flowers from Maya Road.

I love all the shades of green in the same card. It's been so hot here this summer that most of the green is fading away already.

Gorjuss Butterflies

These butterflies are TOO sweet. I paired them with a Gorjuss girl in her mustard colored dress.

I love these dimensional velvety looking butterflies that came from a store called A Stamp Artist Place in North Carolina. I have looked them up online, but there doesn't appear to be a way to order from them online. Perhaps someone from the area will see this.

I can't believe it, I finally got a copy of the retired TAC (The Angel Company) Ragdolls stamp set. I have been looking for this set for YEARS. On Ebay, stamping groups, trade spots, TAC yahoo groups, random internet searches, you name it. The other night I was just happened to do an ebay search (about the 400th time I have done one) and there it was! An excellent condition set! I couldn't believe it. Now here a week later the set is in my hot little hands.

Here's my first card done with the set. I just love the dolls in this set as wells as all the wonderful sayings. You will definitely see more of this set in the future.

As an aside the secondary goal of this card was to make something that's perfectly flat. I love to put the beautiful flowers, dimensional tape and other such accents, but I have also had problems mailing these cards. I have noticed that the post offices differ in their processing. I have one post office that will run their hand over your card and if they feel the SLIGHTEST bump--you get jacked up to package rate! Another has the post office standard mail slots cut out of plastic and they will simply stick it through the slot, as long as it goes through their test slot, it's considered "flat". I don't know why the standards are so different, but package rate for a card seems ridiculous at $1.22 for the first ounce. So, here's an example of a perfectly flat card that will pass any post office test.

Cardstock (Bazzill); Stamps (Ragdolls-TAC); Coloring (Stampin' Up watercolor crayons); Edging (Colorbox chalk ink-chestnut Roan)

Charlotte KETTO

Hello all! I know I am posting this card a little early today! Here's another KETTO girl stamp.

I did this card by taking two compatible shades of Bazzill Orange papers. The top layer I used a Fiskar's punch to create a border on both sides of the paper. Then I used Colorbox Chalk to lightly outline the edge. The stamp is done in Versafine ink with Stampin' Up watercolor crayons. The princess word was a rubon, but I don't know whose. The Charlotte Ketto stamp comes from Stamping Bella.

Have a great Sunday!

Be a Friend

Be a friend. That sounds like a nice sentiment for the day. Little miss Amplee-tude is looking for her other Stampin' Bella pals.

I love this stamp esp because of her lucious looking long hair. I have always had long hair. (Minus a short stint in the Air Force). I love this line of stamps from Stamping Bella. I hope to post more cards using them in the future.

Project Materials:

Cardstock (pink/brown-Bazzill; Mica Gold-California Paper; Printed- DCWV); Stamp (Amplee-tude by Stamping Bella); Flowers (Prima); Brads (Mod); Saying (Sticker); Buttons (unknown); Watercolors (Inktense by Dewent); Blending Pen (Stampin' Up); Adhesives (glue dots -Stampin' Up; Dimensional Tape-EK Success)

A Bowl of Apples

Here's a sweet stamp from Stampin' Bella. She's called Appley Bowl Huggabug. I thought the saying was so cute. But isn't it true?

Here's a Gorjuss princess and her little bear. I love this stamp and it makes me think of dressing up as a little girl.

You're a hoot!

Here's an extra bonus card today. I have been posting so many cute little girl cards that you probably think those are the only stamps I own. Well I also have some adorable owls! This one comes from CC Designs.

I just love all the funny sayings that come with the owl stamps. I have others that I will make cards from too.

Project Materials
Cardstock (Bazzill); Stamps (Owl- CC Designs; You're a hoot- Hero Arts; Woo-Whoo! Hampton); Inks (Black Versafine-Tsukeniko; Colorbox Chalk-chestnut Roan); Watercolors (Derwent InkTense)

I'll fly away

This Gorjuss girl is floating off into the heavens with her big red balloon. This stamp comes from the new set #3 recently released by Sugar Nellie. I bet she has a Gorjuss view from up there!

There's one new "thing" about this card. A change in my coloring....can you tell what? Hopefully not, as I didn't want the change to be too obvious.....

I started using my copic marker to color in the face/arms. See the difference now? I was never 100% happy with the way the skin tones would come out when watercoloring the faces, but I was also concerned about mixing the copics and watercolors in the same project. I like the subtlety of the watercolors which can be a contrast to the coverage you get with copic markers. But, I think they look fine together, what do you think?

Project Materials:

Cardstock (Bazzill); White pigment ink (stippled onto the cardstock to create clouds); Stamps (Gorjuss Girl - Sugar Nellie; Saying - StampaRosa); Sheer iridenscent vellum (unknown); Derwent Watercolor/Inktense pencils; Copic marker #EOO Skin white;

Diane Duda's Frog Prince

Gorjuss Set #3

Here's the first card from the new Gorjuss set. I love these stamps. I sat down and mounted them as soon as they arrived. They all stamp very well. I have stamped them all already, and here's the first card.

As I am sure you can tell from my blog, I really tend towards warm colors: reds, oranges, browns, and such; I am trying to make myself get away from always using my "comfortable" colors and use other colors (and color combinations) sometimes. Today I went with purples and pinks together.

Project materials: Cardstock (Bazzill); Paper (DCWV); Flowers (Prima); Stamp (Gorjuss girl from SugarNellie); Epoxy brad (Making Memories); Watercolors (Derwent Inktense); acyllic pebbles (adhered with glue dots); Buttons/ribbon (unknown)

They're Here!!

Keep your eyes on the blog because the new Gorjuss Girls set 3 arrived today! I have already trimmed them up and mounted them. New projects will be coming soon.


You look Gorjuss in Orange!

This card is a gorguss mica cardstock in a beautiful orange color. The secondary paper is a beautiful vellum style paper, that also has a mica stardust coating in a gold color. It was already embossed when I got it. The sheen is so beautiful in person. I wish there was a way to capture the sparkle of the papers.

I paired the cardstock with an adorable Gorjuss girl colored in oranges and a simple message stamped on Bazzill bling.

Project materials:

Card (Mica stardust in Flame), accents (white bazzill, bazzill bling in tan, gold stardust embossed vellum type paper); Stamp (Gorguss girl from Sugar Nellie, Thinking of You from Stampin Up); flowers (Prima); brads (Basic Grey); ink (image Versafine black; Message/edging Colorbox chalk in chestnut roan); coloring with Dewent Inktense pencils

Magnolia 2

I just love these adorable stamps from Magnolia. This girl stamp is called Tilda.

Lately my favorite technique has been watercoloring the stamped images after stamping. I use a waterproof ink when stamping, my personal favorite is Versafine by Tsukineko; I stamp many images at once and set them aside so they will have sufficient time to dry. I usually give them a day or so. I have never had problems with running when I do that.

I have a lot of watercoloring tools including watercolor paints, pencils, and crayons. I love the crayons for coloring directly on the stamps; But when coloring in stamped images, I prefer to use watercolor pencils. My favorite pencils are Derwent Inktense. I don't think these are meant to be watercolor pencils, but they are water soluable, so they work for that purpose. They are much softer than any other watercolor pencils so I like the ease that they blend together. I also like that I can color in a single color, wet with a blender pen, then add more color with another pencil. As you can see from many projects, I love the results I get with these.

Cardstock (Bazzill); Stamp (Magnolia); Vellum saying (unknown); Brads (Provocraft and Making Memories)

Floating Away

This Gorjuss girl is drifting away. The cardstock is a beautiful sapphire mica with a beautiful shimmer that is hard to see in the scan.

Things that make my heart smile: when a little kid waves at me, when my cat comes up to my leg and rubs me, when I get wonderful new stamps in the mail, when I goto church with a song in my heart and we sing it that day, when my DH comes home from work, the smell of fresh rain, oh, so many things I could never list them all!
