Today’s card (10-27)

Hi all!

Another day. Another card.

Just a fun one I made a bit back.

The jar (stamped twice) is from the Sweet Treat Sweetie stamp set from Avocado Arts.

The “eeek!!!” word is from the Eek stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

I love wiggle eyes so I used a whole bunch to fill up one of the jars.

Lots and lots of glue used. πŸ˜‰ And the ghosts are stickers from Doodlebug.

That’s all for now. Be back again later.

PS…. Looking for my Paper Smooches winner? I’m away from the computer right now so I’ll post a winner on Monday.

The words and wagon are from the brand spanking “New for November” Knick Knacks set. It’s pretty dang adorable. There’s a a doll, rocking horse and all kinds of fun little stuff in the set.

I decided to live on the edge and pair the wagon with the snowman and tree, which are both from the Warm Hearts set that just came out a few weeks ago.

One of the things I really love about Kim and her stamps is she makes them so versatile. It’s so great to be able to mix and match elements from different sets together.

Alright so that’s it! πŸ™‚

Thanks for bee-bopping by today. I’ll be back again later, gators.

Have a fabulous day!

The Play Date Cafe: Challenge #155 (10-25)

Hi guys!

So my friends over at The Play Date Cafe invited me to play along with them again this week.

It’s a special week because Technique Tuesday is sponsoring them this week as well, providing them with some stamps and prize for someone who takes part it this week’s Color Story challenge.

So here is this week’s Color Story Challenge.

And here’s my take on it.

I used some patterned papers from Studio Calico, gold ribbon from Mon Ami Gabi, gems from Zva Creative and the Awesome stamp set from Technique Tuesday. (Yes, that’s really the name! Makes me giggle every time!)

I’ll be back again in a bit!

See you again shortly!

Project Share: Avocado Arts (10-22)

Hi all!

Meet today’s card.

I played again with Avocado Arts’ Gobble Until You Wobble stamp set.

The flower petals here are actually feathers for the stamp set’s turkey.

I stamped them on patterned paper, fussy cut them, brushed a marker right down the middle to give them a little depth and then folded them. I just wanted some extra dimension. I know, the process sounds all time consuming, but it really didn’t take long at all.

I’m not the only one playing with Avocado Arts stamps today. Head to the blogs of these sweet girls to see what they made with the Gobble Until You Wobble set:

Swing by the Avocado Arts blog, too. The Avocado Arts gang always love to hear from good folks, too.

Be back again later, friends!

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Appreciate each and every one of you.

Today’s card (10-18)

Hi everybody!

Meet today’s card.

This little card was just a fun little exercise in playing around. Took a little bit of this. Added a little bit of that. The final result was this.

The paper is from the Yearbook collection 6×6 pad from Studio Calico. The tabs (and word and heart) were stamped with the Sentiment Tabs by Ali Edwards stamp set from Technique Tuesday. The twine’s from the Twinery, and the pearls from the ol’ stash-a-roo.

That’s all for now.

By the way, today’s the last day to get a comment in on my post for the Go-to Gal Stamp Out Breast Cancer! blog hop. Leave a comment on that post for a chance to win a Pink Pack from A Muse Studio! (Thank you again, A Muse Studio!)

See you again soon, y’all!

Go-to Gal Hop: Stamp Out Breast Cancer! (10-17)

Hi all!

I’m joining up with some of the Go-to Gals today for a blog hop in honor of A Muse Studio’s Stamp Out Breast Cancer campaign.

Have you heard of it?

In the month of October, they are giving away 10,000 pamphlets on breast health and free stamps, specifically their Fight Like a Girl stamp set. Check out A Muse Studio’s blog to learn more about the campaign and for updates.

You can order the set through their Web site. They ask you pay $3 for shipping and handling. It’s a pretty sweet deal.

In honor of the campaign, some of us are playing with the set today! So let’s get on with it. Meet today’s cards! (Yep. Cardssss.)

Here’s #1.

The flowers are from A Muse Studio’s Floral Duet stamp set. I just stamped them on cardstock and then used a marker to add some extra highlights. The sentiment is one of my favorites from the Fight Like a Girl set.

And meet #2.

I used the same marker trick with the butterfly (which is from A Muse Studio’s Papillon stamp set). This sentiment is also from the Fight Like a Girl set.

Be sure to check out the blogs of these Go-to Gals to see how they used the set.

Julie’s talking about the campaign today, too!

And be sure to leave a comment. A Muse Studio has generously offered up one of their Pink Packs to give away to one of you.

The Pink Pack consists of: three ink pads; an assortment of lovely A Muse Studio papers; ribbon and pretty pink pearl stickers. It’s really lovely!

Comments will be taken until Friday, Oct. 19th. A winner will be selected this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Avocado Arts: Project Share (10-15)

Hi guys!

Meet today’s card!

Played a little bit with some Avocado Arts stamp sets: Gobble
Until You Wobble and November’s stamp set.

The tag and words are from the Gobble Until You Wobble set. The line is a sneak peek of sorts. It’s from November’s set.

Once again, did a little stamping and paper piecing.

To see more projects with Gobble Until You WobbleΒ  and November’s stamp set, head to the blogs of all these great chicks:

And, of course, Avocado Arts. Be sure to tell them howdy just because. πŸ™‚ It would make their day.

Oh yeah, and be sure to comment when you stop by the blogs!

Avocado Arts will be choosing some random folks from comments made on all the blogs for these mini stamp sets.


The winners will be announced on the Avocado Arts blog and Facebook page.

See you again later.

Technique Tuesday: Oct. Greenhouse Society (10-15)

Hi y’all!

Hooray! A card to share! πŸ˜‰

Made this one in honor of the Greenhouse Society stamp set for October from Technique Tuesday.

Here’s a peek at the set, which goes on sale on their Web site later today.

Purposely stamped on patterned paper with a slightly textured finish for a little more artsy, classy look.

Finished things off with a butterfly punched from patterned paper.

That’s all for now. Be back later!

Today’s card (10-12)

Hi all!

Meet today’s card.

A really, really, really simple one.

Made this with A Muse Studio’s Fight Like a Girl stamp set. Have you heard their “Stamp Out Breast Cancer” campaign?

They are trying to “stamp out” breast cancer this month and are giving away 10,000 pamphlets on breast health, as well as 10,000 of their Fight Like a Girl stamp sets.
They are free (other than they ask you to pay $3 for shipping). You can order one through their Web site. It’s a sweet deal!

I’ll be sharing a little more next week with the stamp set. Wednesday, to be exact. πŸ˜‰

It’s a little hard to tell, but I used the set’s “hope” word to stamp with pink right onto the card.

Then I over-stamped with the “I Support You” sentiment. Easy peasy.

That’s all for now! See you again soon!
