Muse Challenge, Memory Box and Paper Smooches…

Pam Sparks April Showers Umbrella

Hi everybody!  yep, it’s raining here and it’s our youngest daughter’s birthday which got me to thinking about cards and the Muse Challenge that I’ve been wanting to jump in on this week!

muse_featured_member

I love Michele’s card and was inspired by her element popped up in the corner of the rectangle.  I left my rectangle kinda big cuz I didn’t want to cut off that much of the die but I kinda wish I would’ve now.  Oops, I added a layer and forgot the sentiment was on a banner. I should’ve sent myself the picture and had it up on my phone I guess.  Can’t trust my brain! lol

Pam Sparks April Showers Umbrella Close

I used some dies I haven’t used very much so that was fun.

The Umbrella is from Magnolia Sweden (I don’t see it in stock in any of the US online stores, you can probably order it directly from Magnolia Sweden though)… the scallop stitched rectangle is from My Favorite Things… the rain background and stitched rectangle are Memory Box and the boots are from Paper Smooches. I stamped the boots with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink on the mini MISTI.  I stamped and cut out a mask and inked the inside of the boots with Evergreen Bough and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks.

 

The next card I made for stamp club here.  The theme was April Showers Bring May Flowers, so puddles with splashes just seemed like fun!  All the stamps and the die are from Paper Smooches. The stitched rectangle die is Memory Box.  The polka dot paper is My Favorite Things, the Lollipop and Cookie Monster layer and card-base are Taylored Expressions.

and a close up … splish splash…

Pam Sparks PS Welcome Spring Close

It’s interesting to see the difference in the background colors of the photos.  The welcome Spring card pictures were from Friday a.m. when the sun was shining… the umbrella card was late afternoon today with no sun but plenty of light.

Both cards are A-2 size.

Thanks for looking at my Spring cards! I appreciate it!  Have a good week!

I colored Tilda with Distress Ink refills.  I am still playing around with these… trying to figure out what works for me.  I ended up using Tattered Rose and Tea dye for her skin… I know, everyone else uses Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo. ugh… the vintage photo really goes yellow on me.  YES, her cheeks got way toooo big on me!  You aren’t supposed to notice! hahahahahahahaha Well, they aren’t near this dark IRL.    I’m not going to give up on them yet… I keep going back and trying again! lol

I used a couple older Magnolia stamps from the So Jolly collection @ Tilda’s Town. com, HERE and the snowflake DooHickeys die HERE.

I stamped on PTI card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Die cut the Fir in Snow image with Spellbinders rectangle die, left it in the die and embossed it.  Colored in the snowflakes with white gel pen.  Let them dry and then used Distress ink pads in Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans, applied with the Ink Blending tool while the image was still in the die.  The Calendar stamp is colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Stardust stickles on the snowflake and circles.

Happy New Year to you dear stamping friends!  It’s been a great year and 2013 is looking even better!  Why? Because today our internet service was fixed!!!  I have been limping a long with less than stellar service for a couple years.  The last several months it’s progressively gotten worse until this last week it’s been less than 1 mbps when it’s supposed to be up to 15 mbps!!!   I am in shock today to be speeding along!  I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!  All that to say,  I hope I get around better this year!  I should!!!!

It’s a joy following and sharing this wonderful stamping and paper-art hobby with you!  Thanks again for a wonderful 2012 and looking forward to 2013!

Be sure to scroll down for the great sale at the Scrapping Center!  Trust me,  it’s amazing!  hehe

Lawn Fawn – Snowman…

I’ve been wanting to use my Lawn Fawn stamps and earlier this week when a couple of our granddaughters and their friend were over, we played with them!   So fun!

Of course my snowman had to be holding a heart! (MS border punch)   I used a Magnolia DooHickeys tree die and limeade twine.

I stamped on Hammermill 80# color copy cover paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  I used my Perfect Paper Layers Tools to matt the image and MFT Die-namics cloud dies for the snow!   The greens are Forest green , Apple Cider and Pear green.   The blues are Twilight Sky and Midnight Blue.  I used Flexmarkers for the grays… Blue Grey 1, 2, 3, 4.   Can’t remember the browns on the birdie.  The orange is pumpkin.

I’m linking up to the Lawnscaping Challenge and the theme is “Dust ’em off”!  woohoo!  My card made the Top Mows!

Magnolia – Edwin Hiking…

Hi everyone!  The new challenge for this week at Tilda’s Town, HERE, is to ‘create an Autumn scene’.   Well,  I have lots of new stuff that needs used!  So I had to get out this new Tall Tree die I’ve had since the end of May and use it!  I used watercolor paper for all of this card.

This photos shows the side step folding and layering.  I couldn’t find a Magnolia grass die to link to,  so I linked up to a couple other grass dies that will work well for scenes too!

I have to tell you about a new store I’ll be linking to a lot!  I’m so excited about the extensive lines they carry and I think you’ll like it too!  All the stuff I use and love!

Over 90,000 products in stock, ready to ship!  When you shop through my links,  I’ll receive credit to keep buying new stamps and supplies to share here on my blog!   I really appreciate it because I love to stamp and share!

The Scrapping Center has tons of stamps!  Inky Impressions,  Stampendous, Hero Arts, Stampavie, Art Impressions, Magnolia, Stamping Bella and I could go on and on!  Dies too!  Pull down under papercrafting to die-cutting…. I could shop all day!!!

Back to Hiking Edwin… what a handsome guy!  I watercolored all of the images and the die cuts with Distress inks.  I linked to the colors I used below.   Don’t you love Walter the moose?  Cuter than cute.  Although I’m sure he’s yukky IRL! lol   You’ll find these new Magnolia stamps from the Turning Leaves collection at TildasTown.com HERE!  Awesome service… free shipping no matter how big your order… discounts the more you buy!  I love it when an order comes fast!

I cut the watercolor paper 8.5 x 5.5 in.,  then made the side steps.  The first step is 3/4 in, the second is 1 in. and the back one is  2  1/2 in.

I couldn’t find the birds on the sign stamp to link to… I don’t know the name either.  If you want to know holler and I can research some more later.  I used my stamp a ma jig to stamp the words on the sign… it’s an old Hero Arts stamp… lots of stamps would work on a sign!
