Family Album

Yesterday's Featured Stamper on SCS was Michelle (Chelemom). Check out her awesome gallery if you haven't already done so. Man, can the girl color or what?!?! Awesome cards!

I chose THIS gorgeous card of hers to CASE.

I bought the Seaside and Story of Me sets from Crafty Secrets a while back, but this is the first time I got to ink up the Story of Me set. What took me so long?...I have no idea!

My card measures 4.25" x 4.25" square. The scallop Chocolate Chip circle is up on a layer of dimensionals, with the white image circle on a second layer over that. The white sentiment oval is up on a layer of dimensionals, with the Chocolate Chip oval behind it up on a second layer too. The image was watercolored with inkpads (by smashing the ink in the lid).

The inside of the card includes a strip of the DP over white CS, then matted with a Chocolate Chip panel again. My good friend, Janice (catcrazy), got me this cute DP. It's a whole pack of 6x6 double-sided DP. So nice of you, Janice, thanks!!

Our Creative Corner Challenge - Basic Grey!

Hi everyone! It's time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge! Cindy is challenging everyone this week to make a card/project using any Basic Grey designer paper. Thank you, Cindy, for hosting all the challenges this month. Loved them all!

You may have seen on Wednesday that we all posted a little tease about today's challenge. Well, here's the scoop you've been waiting for...Lindsey Botkin of Jacksonbelle Embellishments will be awarding a $15 gift certificate to one lucky winner from this week's challenge participants. Ordinarily, there's no time limit on the OCC challenges, but this week, to be entered into the drawing, you need to have your project linked up by 12 noon Eastern Time on Friday, July 4 on the Our Creative Corner blog. We'll draw a random name from the entries and announce the winner on Saturday, July 5, along with our next challenge. How fun is that?! Can't wait to see all the entries!

Thank you, Lindsey, for the awesome giveaway and for being our guest designer!

For my card, I used Basic Grey Blush (BLU-653 Admire). I thought the floral print went so well with the Annie LaPoint Take a Break image from MFT...I think I'm obsessed with this stamp, it's gorgeous and it stamps soooo nice. The image was stamped four times. The base layer was colored with Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi reinkers as well as a Pale Blue Gray Copic marker. I colored one set of flowers in Regal Rose and the other set with a Flesh Pink Copic marker...which actually looks more peach than pink. The tub, Regal Rose flowers, and Flesh Pink flowers were all cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

The inside of the card includes a black mat layer, with a white panel over top of that, and then a strip of the Blush/Admire paper along the left edge. I used my corner rounder for the scalloped edge.

Recipe ~
Stamps: MFT Annie LaPoint Take a Break
Paper: Papertrey White, Soft Sky, Basic Black, Basic Grey Blush/Admire (BLU-653)
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Regal Rose, Pale Blue Gray Copic, Flesh Pink Copic

Brads & Butterflies...and happy 10-year anniversary!

Hi everyone, and TGIF!! First, I want to wish my awesome husband a very happy 10-year anniversary. Love ya, babe! I made him a very special card using his favorite image...but I can't share it with you yet because it's in the Fan Club Gallery awaiting the reveal on the 15th. I'll be able to share it with you here on my blog in a few months from now. I gave it to him this a.m., and he really liked it...whew!

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge is to use brads on a card as the only ribbon, stickles, other hardware, etc....oh, and you had to incorporate the brads into the stamped image somehow. I used mine as the trails for the butterflies. Sharon Johnson is also running a 10-minute card challenge, so I kept my card really simple today.....Just the black Verve butterflies (that are oh so adorable!), silver brads, and shades of black/white/gray. The inside has one little butterfly down in the lower left corner on a piece of white CS that is matted with a black panel.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Verve Fluttering By, Verve Petals & Stems
Paper: Basic Gray, Basic Black, White
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories: Silver Brads, Ticket Corner Punch

Annie LaPoint

Here's a card for today's Sketch Challenge #SC182...using one of the new MFT Annie LaPoint stamps.

I stamped the white inchies (the white 1" x 1" squares that are in the "brady bunch formation"..tehe!) using the top part of the tub image in Lavender Lace. The overall card measures 4" x 4" square.

The main image was stamped twice in Versafine Black Onyx, colored with reinkers and Copic markers, and then the tub and flowers were cut out and popped up on dimensionals over the base layer.

The inside of the card includes a white panel with stamping along the bottom edge...using just the top part of the image. Click on the picture below and it'll give you a zoomed in close-up....actually, you can click on any of my pictures to get a close-up...but you probably already knew that. Okay, enough rambling...

Lavender Mojo

Here's a card for Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch #43 and the Technique Challenge on SCS, which is to color with reinkers.

I love these new Annie LaPoint stamps from MFT. I think they're really pretty! First time inking this one up too.

The main image was cut out with the Coluzzle up to where the image met the edge, then I cut around the part of the lavender stems that were outside the oval. The main panel is popped on a layer of dimensionals, the Amethyst scallop oval is on a second layer, as is the punched sentiment.

Using my Stampin' Spots, I stamped just the top of the lavender image to get the flowers along the bottom of the card front as well as the inside panel. They're stamped in Mellow Moss and Amethyst.

Have to give a shout out to Silke for sending me the Oval Nesties! Thanks, girl! {smile}

Featured Stamper - Lost in the 60's

Today's Featured Stamper on SCS is Diane (Lost in the 60's)....awesome stamper!! What a fantastic gallery to choose from. HERE'S her card that I chose to CASE.

I was totally inspired by the Inkadinkadoo stamp she used and the flight pattern of the birds in that stamp. I don't own that stamp (but I might just buy it because I like it so much) but when I saw it, I thought of my new Verve butterflies.

Speaking of Verve, did you see that I was one of the winners for the $15 in Verve Bucks.....WHOA!, YAY!, OMG--SO EXCITED!! I'm lovin' my new sets, and I can't wait to see the new sets that are being released this week. I was the 29th entry in the Project Parade, and that was the number picked by Random Generator.....funny, because Kevin Harvick (my fav Nascar guy) is #29. {smile}

So back to the's what I kept the same and what I changed. I kept Diane's awesome layout, used some large primas and a brad in the corner, chose stamps that would mirror the *flight path* in her card, and kept the same sentiment placement. I changed the colors, stamps, omitted the vellum, and added gingham ribbon as well as two faux brads in the lower left corner (also stamps from the Petals & Stems set). I know you're probably saying, "Orchid Opulence??" Yeah, I don't think I've ever used it, but let's give it some love, shall we? {smile}

The inside of the card includes a Poison Ivory (shimmery CS) panel with two butterflies stamped in the lower right corner with some paper piercing for the *trails*.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Verve Petals & Stems, Verve Fluttering By
Paper: Textured Orchid Opulence, Basic Black, Poison Ivory Shimmery CS
Ink: Orchid Opulence, Brilliance Graphite Black
Accessories: Black Brads, Primas (sprites), Black Gingham Ribbon, Paper Piercing Tool
Technique: Masking, Paper Piercing
Card Size: 5" x 5" Square

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope you enjoy what's left of the weekend!

I stamped up a sheet of the small swirl from the SU Priceless set in Real Red on white CS, stamped the one butterfly from the Fluttering By set in Brilliance Black over top of the swirls (three times), cut them out, and popped them up on dimensionals over the base layer. I got the red swirl primas at Michael's.

We're back from Knoebels

We're back from our camping trip to Knoebels. Have you ever been to Knoebels Amusement Park and/or the campground??....AWESOME place! If you've never been there but are looking for something to do in Pennsylvania, I highly recommend it! It's like stepping back in time...quaint little amusement park with fun rides (TONS of toddler rides), FREE admission so you can walk in and out as often as you like, great water park, cheap prices, and you can even take the dog right into the park (provided the dog is on a leash). It's one of our favorite places.

We had a great time, but it's nice to be back home. The weather was kind of funny this week. It's usually very hot while we're there so we hang at the pool a lot. This year was really cool, and it rained off and on throughout the day most of Tuesday and Wednesday.

There was one MAJOR thing missing this oldest daughter. She's 19 now and had other plans for this week, so this was the first trip to Knoebels that she missed. :(

Peanut, we missed ya! It wasn't the same without you!

Here are some more pics from the week...

Who's Dirty?

Have you seen the latest dirty girl news on Splitcoast??????????

I was asked to join the design team!!

OMG!..the Dirty Dozen...little ole' me. Wow, huh??

When I was away at the beach last month, I received a phone call...that's right a phone call...from Jenn Balcer asking me what I was "doing for the next six months." {holy cr*#!} Yeah, I was feeling pretty giddy...TRIED so hard to play it cool {how did I do, Jenn?}, but oh man, I was shaking!! LOL!

Two of my stamping friends were with me that weekend, right in the room with me while I was on the phone with Jenn, and promised us that they'd keep the secret. Lori and Janice, what a huge secret to have to keep for an entire month! Thank you, and I'm really glad you were both there to share the excitement.

I'm so glad the secret is out and I can finally TALK about it, LOL! I was so afraid I'd give it away and people would guess....actually some of you DID start making guesses. It was all I could do to avoid those questions too, LOL! So anyway, if I've "disappeared" from threads or if I've been more quiet and haven't been producing as many challenge cards, now you know why. {smile}

If you're a member of the SCS Fan Club, be sure to check out all the awesome projects the dirty girls have put together for this month's theme. You'll love them!

So...onto the card. I made this card for my awesome "roomie" Carole (TruCarMa), who was also introduced as a new dirty girl this month. Hi Carole, I hope you like the card.

I thought the Muddy Pup image from Whipper Snapper would be a cool image for a "dirty girl" card. Check out the pup's little face. Doesn't it just look like the pup is asking, "WHO?" hehe! The image was sent to me by my friend Janette (blessingsx3). Thanks, Janette! The puppy circle is up on a layer of dimensionals, and the Pretty in Pink circle behind it is up on a second layer of dimensionals. The star with the question mark was made on the computer, printed twice, cut out, and layered with dimensionals as well. The white panel at the top is sponged in Pretty in Pink around the edges, and the Who's Dirty sentiment was made on the computer. The inside of the card has a white panel with Close to Cocoa sponged around all four edges. Then I stamped the star stamp from the Background Basics set along the bottom in Pretty in Pink.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Whipper Snapper Muddy Pup, SU Background Basics
Paper: Kraft, White, Pretty in Pink, Sandylion Designs DP (from Michael's)
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Prisma Pencils
Accessories: Berry Sorbet Ribbon, Brown Organdy Ribbon, Circle Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Pink Stickles, Pink Swarovski Crystals
Technique: Gamsol Magic

I'm going to be offline for a few days doing some camping at one of my favorite places here in PA! Thanks for stopping by today and I'll check back in with you later in the week....with camping pics!

Our Creative Corner - Challenge #1

We're having our first challenge today over on the Our Creative Corner blog.

It's a sketch challenge, hosted by Cindy Haffner!!

Come on over and play along in the challenge. Just be sure to leave a comment on the OCC challenge post with a link to your card on your blog or SCS gallery. If you upload to Splitcoast, use keyword OCCC so all the submissions are grouped in one place. :)

*ETA* ...please bear with us while we're working out some bugs. When uploading to SCS, please use keyword OCCC (with THREE c's). We found out today that there are already a bunch of uploads using keyword OCC that aren't part of the Our Creative Corner blog. Sorry for the inconvenience. {smile}

For my card, I used my new Great Impressions Lighthouse stamp that I bought last weekend while shopping with LeAnne, Jen and Wendy (hi girls!).

I stamped the lighthouse in Black Colorbox ink and then heat embossed it in clear EP. I watercolored the image using inkpads, masked the lighthouse, and then sponged Bashful Blue all around the sky. I also added highlights with my Sakura sparkle pen to the lighthouse and water. There's a close-up picture of the sparkle below.

The inside of the card includes a white panel with So Saffron sponged around all four sides. Then I stamped the rope and knot stamps from Crafty Secrets Seaside in Chocolate Chip to make a border around the entire panel.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Great Impressions Lighthouse, Gina K Kindred Sentiments for Her, Craft Secrets Seaside
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, White
Ink: Colorbox Black, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Creamy Caramel, Basic Black, Real Red, Sakura Sparkle Pen
