Wed. Aug. 31, 2016 First card with the new GKD kit "Painted Autumn"

Isn't this adorable?  These are some new images from the Gina K. Design's "Painted Autumn" kit, that I fussy cut and colored with Copics and Zig Markers. I just love my new die cuts, especially the light string!

Halloween will be here so soon!

Tues. August 30, 2016 SP Hugs

This was made with a cat stamp that was on my desk, and I decided to use my high school colors with supplies from Gina K. Designs, and along with Copic marker coloring and designer Paper from GKD.   The sentiment is from Beth Silaika's set at GKD, which was heat embossed and scored as was the background.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Mon. Aug. 29, 2016 A couple Challenges


The first one was for SplitCoast Stamper Sketch Challenge SC607.


 
This  card was just for fun, using stamps from Gina K. Designs- Bella Elephant Vertical Greetings 2 by Theresa Momber, and Fine Feathers by Claire Brennan.

Sunday, Aug. 28, 2016 A newer technique for me....

I watched one of Jennifer McQuire's videos last Monday and had to give it a try.  This is the card I created using the technique she shared with us. 
A very interesting one for you to see.


The Eiffel Tower is a Gina K. stamp from the French Flair set by Theresa Momber.  I fussy cut that French tower. The sentiment was from that set and the gold bow was made using the Bow Easy and cord from GKD too.
Spellbinder Rectangles were used to make the background along with the Cuttlebug machine, per Jennifer's instructions. This is a pretty classy looking card, don't you think?

Thank you for visiting today.

Sat. Aug. 27, 2016 Lots of Green

I added a butterfly from Gina K. Design's Made with Love Stamp Set along with lots of scraps that were on my desk today.  Kind of a patchwork of papers and shapes and even a pre cut heart button, to which I added raffia.  Sort of an interesting design, isn't it?

Thanks for visiting today!

Thanks for visiting today.

Sun.Aug. 21, 2016 Love that Cat

 I spent this gloomy day, playing with things I haven't used in a long time.  The Love sentiment is from Gina K, but the cat image is one I have had for years- buried in a cabinet.  I don't even remember when or where it came from.  I colored it with watercolors to look like our eldest cat, Sam.

Thanks for visiting!

8-18-2016 In Memory of Uncle Ed

I used Claire Brennan's set called My Island to make this CAS card.  A fun creation that made me have so many memories of my dad's brother. Oh all the chocolate Macadamia nut clusters he always sent to us.  Mmmmmm.......

Aug. 17, 2016 Coasters made years ago





I made these years ago when Gina showed us the tutorial,  I used Home Depot tiles and Stazon inks.  I added cork cushioning to the backs to prevent scratching the furniture.  We still use these too.   Gina K had such a great idea to make these.  If you have a chance to see a new tutorial from Gina- give this project a try!

    Thanks for visiting!

Tues. August 16, 2016 Feathers and Hope

I stamped  Claire's Feathers, and then added two that I fussy cut from Gina's mini set called
Dream Catcher. 

Monday, August 15, 2016

Monday, August 15, 2016 Wings

Today I have a quick card that I made using the Claire Brennan set called Fine Feathers, from Gina K. Designs.  A pretty CAS card, with just a few embellies!

Sun. August 14, 2016 Unforgettable Birthday

Wishing someone an unforgettable birthday, using a stamp set from Gina K. Designs.  I think this elephant is so cute.  Beth Silaika did a marvelous job designing this set, don't you agree?

Colored with alcohol markers, a Spellbinder scallop trim out of card stock, all popped up on patterned papers, from my stash. I purposely chose the light blue trim piece to draw your eye to the elephant, and that little mouse. This elephant is holding a small bouquet of heart shaped flowers, also from this set.  So glad you stopped by today.

Sat. August 13, 2016 Get Well Cupcake

Isn't this a fun image from GKD and Designer Claire Brennan's Sweet Thing stamp set?  No calories either!  Haha

Coolest Ever in pinks 8-12-2016

I used Claire Brennan's stamp set from Gina K Designs, called So Cool.  Making this one in pinks just cooled me off- like pink lemonade!  I fussy cut the frozen treats after they were colored and they could look so much more dimensional, and rested on the ribbon addition.


So glad you came to visit my blog today!

8-11-2016 What's the Scoop?

 MIUM challenge!

8-10-2016 Mom is 86 today

Happy Birthday to my Mom!  86 years young!  "Sending her Love" All my Love!

The butterfly is from the Gina K. Sending Love stamp set.  I used Distress Ink and Copics for color after I added a sponged Spellbinder circle and assorted strips of CS.

Monday, August 8, 2016

8-8-2016 To thank some neighbors- Such a nice couple!

I used a GKD stamp set that is new and some Copics.  The sentiment was from a different GKD set, and stamped in White ink on Black CS.   A gem was added to draw your eye down, and a cs scallop to balance things!.

Thank you for looking,

Friday August 5, 2016 My Take on Vintage Flair

 I used stamps from Theresa Momber's French Flair and created this after watching the video on StampTV this morning.  The background image is one I made so many years ago I lost track and I saved . I distressed the edges, and roughed them up first, with my Distress -It-All . Sometimes being a pack-rat works out!  I decided to use it and fussy cut the elements,as well.  I am very happy with the way this turned out!
Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of this one.  It's been a heck of a week.

8-4-2016 Scor-Pal Challenge #29 More Than One Score , All About Birthdays"

I made this for the Scor-Pal Challenge #29--More Than One Score and All about Birthdays.  I used stamps from Gina K. Designs- Sweet Things, by Claire Brennan. After I scored the bottom and sponged it, I put it on a piece of white card stock.  The cupcake was fussy cut and popped up with pop dots, after Copic coloring it.

Thank you for stopping in to take a peek today!
