Sweet Stamping Pixies – Monochrome…

Second Monday of the month and time for a NEW Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge!

The challenge….monochrome!  So glad Jay Jay picked this.  I love it but forget to do it, so it’s a great challenge! I hope you can join us… click over to see the fabulous monochrome color choices the rest of the design team used.

I stamped on PTI card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the E40 series Copic Sketch Markers.   E40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47 and 49.

The ‘love’ word is from a pack of chipboard type sticker words by GCD Studios called Soul Food Word Stickers.

I love, love, LOVE this sentiment I used on the inside from Stampendous.  The true meaning of Christmas.

🎄 🎄 🎄

Meet Caroling Daisy… a new clear stamp from the Don and Daisy line by Marianne Design.  She is stamped on Hammermill 80# Color copy paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  The pattern paper is from the NEW Fancy Pants Christmas 6×6 pad.

I used the new Book die from Marianne Design and stamped a stamp from Embossing Arts on the book page.  I had to use a negative mask (I made it by stamping and cutting out what I wanted to stamp)  to stamp the image.

Martha Stewart holly branch punch and holly border punch. ok – the holly branch punch is hard to find, some places say discontinued… I found it at Blue Moon, link below… if you want it… grab it while you can!  The JOY sentiment is from Printworks Collection.

CAS Merry Christmas…

Our stamp club has a card swap each month at our meeting… the second Friday of the month at 1 p.m. if you ever want to come!   Links below to the products I used.  This is the card I made to swap. Papertrey Ink Poinsettia year of the flower and die.  I used the small one out of the set, inked it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamped on PTI white select card-stock and colored it with Copic Sketch markers.  The sentiment is from the same set…inked with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Happy Day… this card made the CAS Favorites over at Splitcoast Stampers today… always an honor.  SCS is a great place to play!  Click on the logo to see the thread and other favorite CAS creations.  Thank you SCS!

I love the look of the Cuttlebug Herringbone Embossing folder…have you noticed how often the folders are being used again?!  Love that… I own so many and rarely use them… always need inspiration to use the stash!

I used my Perfect Paper Layers tools to mat the sentiment strip… they work so slick… can’t make a card without them anymore!  I use an omnigrid ruler for placement on the fold, then I can use the layers tools to cut the other three sides.  Would that be a good video for me to make???

Juliene had the program this month and here’s a photo of the card she had us make…Stampin Up stamps and supplies.

and here’s a photo Juliene took… this is the window in the room we use at the Public Library here… so glad she snapped it and shared! Friday was a lovely day!

I’m almost done! hohoho

Magnolia, Tilda’s Town Challenge…

Click over to Tilda’s Town Challenges and choose your passion this week,  CAS (clean and not so simple for me) or Fussy and Fancy.  My card is CAS although I think when you color it’s hard to say it’s simple!

I stamped Tilda with Corn on PTI select white card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  Her hair is E50, E31, E55 and E37.  Her shirt is YG0’s and her skirt is YR0’s and YR12.

I used some pattern paper from Simple Stories and  SU card-stock for the card base.  The sentiment is from a company,  long out of business… sorry about that.

The greenery on the bottom right is the Memory Box Serafina Heart die that I trimmed to work in the corner.  It’s a heart shaped floral die… kinda fun how it matched the paper!

Before I go fix supper, I wanted to let you know that Scrapping Center is celebrating with a sale!

Joy, Joy, Joy…

I do love stamp edge/postal stamping kinds of things!  In 1998 when I went to the first Art Continuum, I had a stamp made before I left that looks like a postal cancellation and it says “Pam going postal”.  We all had books and went around collecting each other’s stamp images!  I still love my stamp!  In the center of the circle part, I stamp a red heart.  So fun!

I saw Loll’s card on her blog, HERE and knew I wanted to CASE it and she said I could!  Thanks Loll!

I’ll link below to the products I used.  The stamp square is an old McGill punch and I couldn’t find it anywhere to link to,  so I’ll give you some other options.  It was really hard to punch through my Bazzill card-stock anyway. ugh!   I LOVE this Cuttlebug die set of stamps… I own it and it’s great!  The square die in the set, is the same size as the punch I used.  I used the circle die on this ATC HERE.  Then I own the Spellbinders stamp edge dies and use them too.  HERE is a card I used a larger stamp square from the nestabilities set on… cool.

The alphabet die set I used is from Quickutz called Tangerine.  I googled and found it HERE.  It’s a discontinued set so it surprised me that it showed up!

Couldn’t find the holly punch I used to link up to either… sorry about that.  I own these other two that I linked to below and they will work and look great too!  That’s what I get for grabbing without looking first!

Use your Perfect Paper Layering Tools to create even spaces between your shapes.  Watch the video HERE

I HAVE to tell you about my latest NEW tool!!!  LOVE!  The NEW MINI Martha Stewart SCORE BOARD!  It’s awesome!  The coolest way to make envelopes on the back side!!!  So lightweight and easy to use and scores like a dream and the score tool is WAY better and even hooks on the front!  The price… well… it’s awesome too!  Here’s the description…

MARTHA STEWART CRAFTS-Mini Score Board. Score flawless crisp lines in seconds! Perfect for card makers; it will accommodate papers up to 8 inches wide with scoring grooves spaced at 1/8 inch increments. An easy-to-use guide is printed on the back surface with standard card sizes and grooves for creating matching sized envelopes. It is made of durable melamine and includes a bone folder that clips onto the surface for compact storage. Overall measurements of the board are 9-3/4×7-1/2 inches. Each package contains one scoring board and one bone folder.

So good to be back blogging!  : )  I just mailed off 20 cards to Printworks Friday afternoon!  Wow!  I designed 8 cards for them and then I’m making multiples for store sample boards… so… if you are in Orlando, FL the first weekend of October for the wholesale trade show…check out the first four designs I sent!

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 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!
