I'm Just Answering the Call...

Stamp Fairy is having a DT Call, and I thought I should give it a shot.  After all, you do get free images!  This is my first REAL Design Team entry, so we'll see how it goes.  I guess we must all start somewhere!

*For more information on the Stamp Fairy DT Call, click on the link!

I have three cards to show today, so I'll get right to it!

This is Oscar.  You might remember him from another lengthy post of mine last week.  Oscar was printed out onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, and colored with copics.  He was then cut out with Circle Nestabilities.  The paper is Echo Park Everybody Loves Christmas.

 This sweet bear is Lenny.  He is actually a newly added Freebie at Stamp Fairy.  The sketch for this card is Sweet Sketch Wednesday #77.  The supplies for this card are from one of my Key Ingredients Kits by Taylored Expressions.  I think it is from September 2009!  That just proves how far these kits can go!  Lenny was printed onto Neenah paper, then coloured with copics.

Last, but certainly not least, is Winter Ella.  She is one of the newly released Puddle Jumpers (by Lori Boyd) from Claduia & Company.  These adorable stamps are one of my favourites, and I own ALL of them!  Ella and her sweet little penguin friend were stamped onto X-Press Bleding paper, and coloured with copics.  The sketch for this card is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #101.

Thanks for stopping by....and making it to the end of this LONG post!

TESC 134

Good morning!  I can't believe that the week is already half over!  I guess for my American sistahs the week is over today!

Despite all the layers, this card came together so easy!  I absolutely LOVE this set, Make a Wish, by Taylored Expressions.  The great thing about this set is that it is a part of the TE Giving Tree.  This means that a portion of the sales from this set is donated to a charity of choice, and from September to November these profits are going to the Make a Wish Foundation.  Talk about a great reason to get a stamp set!

The layout for this card, as mentioned in the title is Taylor's TESC #134.  I stared by stamping the cake with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press Blending cardstock.  I then coloured it with copics and added Espresso Dimensional Pearls to the icing.  Then, I cut it out with my nestabilities and sponged around the edges with Memento Cantaloupe and Color Box Yellow Ochre.

The designer paper is from Imaginisce called Birthday Bash.

Oscar...three different ways!

After seeing THIS card by Jeanie for her That's Krafty Thursday, I had to go over to the Stamp Fairy site and check things out.  There are some absolutely ADORABLE images, and FREEBIES!!!

This is where I found Oscar! He just might be one of the cutest bears in the world!

 This card is based on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday #76 challenge.  I printed out Oscar on Whisper White cardstock, and coloured him in with copics.  I added some Smooch Illuminate to the snowball to give it a little sparkle.  The designer paper is Echo Park Everybody Loves Christmas. The snowflake is from Winter Wonderland by Taylored Expressions, and was cut out using the matching Snowflake Die!

This card, again featuring Oscar, is based on the Card Patterns Sketch #91.  I love how simple this layout is, but how amazing the finished card looks!  The supplies are all the same as the first card (I'll save some time by NOT posting that again)!

My last Oscar card for today is the one, using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #94.  Again, as per the first two, all the supplies are the same, except I did add a panel embossed with the Swiss Dots Embossing folder!

It Started with such GOOD intentions....

I had all these cards made last week for challenges, and didn't manage to get them posted. So, today, I will add some, and hope that this week I can get caught up!

This card might be one of my favourite Christmas cards this year!  The sketch is Mojo Monday Sketch #165.  I will definitely keep this sketch to use in the future, it's so versatile!

The stamp set is Winter Wonderland from Taylored Expressions.  I LOVE the snowflakes and the fonts used in this set!  Lucky for me (and whoever else has this set!), there is a snowflake die that Taylor has to cut these gorgeous snowflakes out with.

The paper used for this card is Wintergreen, from Stampin' Up.  I used to hoard all my ribbon and designer paper for some reason, so my stash is huge, but at least it is getting used now!

This card also fits into Jeanie's That's Krafty Thursday #42 challenge!

Have a great Monday!

Stamps - Winter Wonderland (Taylored Expressions); Paper - Crumb Cake, Choice Buttercream, Always Artichoke, SU! Wintergreen; Other - Sage Shadow SU Marker, Snowflake Die, Nestabilities, MFT Open Scallop Border Die, Certainly Celery ribbon

It's Time for Another..

Blast from the Past Blog Hop! I hope you are enjoying your hop so far! I can't wait to see everyone's creations!

The theme Taylor gave us this week was Thankful. Here is what I came up with:

I absolutely LOVE this set, Discover Your Wings. It has to be one of my most favourite sets ever!

I started by stamping the flowers with Versafine Onyx Black ontio Crumb Cake CS. Then I cut it out with my rectangle nestabilities. With the die still in place, I sponged the inside with Memento Cantaloupe and Color Box Yellow Ochre.

The supplies used are all from the October Key Ingredients Kit. The DP is Imaginisce Apple Cider.

Be sure to check the list below for the complete list of hoppers! Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy!

Post 2....TESC 133

This is my second post for today! Scroll down for my Claudia & Company Challenge Card.

These are the last batch of Thank You cards I have made for my SIL. I think these might be my favourite!

The sketch is Taylor's TESC #133. I used Discover Your Wings, from Taylored Expressions and stamped it with Versafine Black onto Crumb Cake. Then I layered it with Basic Black and Choice Snow White. The DP is Making Memories Black and White.

I added a punch of colour with the ribbon and the coloured panel behind the image! And then, the brads were added to complete the card!

Have a great Friday!

Claudia & Company Challenge #6

Happy Friday! I can't believe this week is nearly over!

Today is the Claudia & Company Challenge #6, and I am the Guest Designer for this week! I was SOOO EXCITED when Claudia emailed me! This month's challenge is to use Brown, Cream and another colour.

Here is my card:

This is School Time Lucy....she is just the cutest little thing! She totally reminds me of my DD, except her hair isn't quite long enough for those braids! I stamped her onto Choice Buttercream and coloured her with copics. I paper pieced her skirt and then cut her out.

The paper is SU Loves Me and the ribbon is from Michaels. The sketch is from Jen del Muro's SFYTT from October 30. To finish the card I did some machine stitching with my sewing machine!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

You're the Cat's Meow...

Firstly, being Remembrance Day, I would like to take a moment to thank our heros (past and present) for the freedom they have given this great country of ours. Lest we forget.

For today's card, I used another image that I had already printed and coloured. (this makes the process much quicker!)

This is Purrrfect, a digital image from Tiddly Inks by Christy Croll. I just LOVE him. He is the sweetest little kitty! He was printed onto Choice Snow White cardstock, and coloured with copics. I cut him out with circle nestabilities, and then sponged around the edges with Memento Canteloupe.

The sketch for this card is TESC 132, and the supplies are all from the Pet's Place Project Pantry.

That is all for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps - Purrrfect (Tiddly Inks), Pet's Place (Taylored Expressions); Paper - Pet's Place Project Pantry, Basic Grey Max & Whiskers, Crumb Cake, Choice Snow White; Other - Copics, Nestabilities, Brads, Sewing Machine, Paw Print Border Punch (EK Success)

Gator Greetings...

While cleaning my disaster of a workspace, I found a LARGE pile of images I had already stamped, printed, and/or coloured. I decided it was more than due time to reduce that pile, and man, does it ever make things easier when you choose from a pile of already stamped images....just pick and go from there!

This is a Birthday Alligator, from Bugaboo Stamps. He was printed out on Choice Snow White cardstock, and coloured with copics.

The sketch for this card is Mojo Monday Sketch #164. I made this card for a boy's birthday, so I omitted the ribbon. And, since my card uses Kraft (well Crumb Cake!), it also fits Jeanie's That's Krafty Thursday #41! (So glad Jeanie's back in Blogland!)

The paper is from Basic Grey Oliver. To finish the card, I did some machine stitching, and there you have it!

Some bunny's been naughty..

but it definitely wasn't me!

I absolutely LOVE this set from The Cat's Pajamas. The bunny is soo cute, not to mention the sentiments that go with it!

This is Deep Breath, and I'll tell you again, I LOVE him! I created this card using the TCP Tuesday Challenge 132, using Red, Orange and Pink. The sketch for this card is Jen's SFYTT from October 23.

I started out by stamping the bunny onto Choice Buttercream cardstock, and colouring him in with my copics. I paper pieced his had and scarf and added some Sugar Sparkly Fluff to his hat.

The paper in this card is all from the Crate Paper Pink Plum collection.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Monday!
