Snowman Soup Sketch!

Another sketch from ME at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog

I just love the top, and the Mischief Makers took this sketch and ran with it, so excited!  Here is my sample:

Stamped the sweet snowman and trees from A Cottage Christmas and the sentiment from Say It Loud-Winter Holiday.  I just got some Jillibean Soup patterned papers for the first time, and they are so pretty!  The pink paper is from the Homemade 6 Bean Soup Collection, and the paper on the trees is from the Christmas Chowder Collection.  I just love the names and COLORS!

Colored the snoman with Copic markers, and added lots of dimensionals here and there.  The star is chipboard, painted first with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Crackle Paint, and then "streaked" over the top with Plaid Folk Art Paint in the color "Vintage White".  I discovered that if you buy Bias Tape and then unfold it and iron it out, it makes the prettiest sheer cotton ribbon!

Now it's your turn!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, November 4th.  Ohhh it's getting close to Christmas, and I can't wait to see your creations!  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Stamps:  A Cottage Christmas, Say It Loud-Winter Holiday, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  Homemade 6 Bean Soup Collection and Christmas Chowder Collection from Jillibean Soup, Vintage Cream cardstock, Papertrey Ink
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Copic Markers
Other:  chipboard star, button and yellow twinkle sticker from A Muse Studio, bias tape, twine, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Crackle Paint, Plaid Vintage White Folk Art Paint

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Time for another blog hop with Papertrey Ink.  This month is another inspiration photo seen here:

So....have you ever made what I call a "fantasy card"?  Like, one that you have absolutely no idea who you are going to send it to, or how it would ever hold up in the mail?  Well, that's what I made for today...

Hee!  I made this fringed pumpkin after seeing Julie Ebersole's AWESOME video tutorial HERE!  That's how this whole card started.   Seriously, watch her video, it's so easy!  All you need is a long strip of felt, some thin sticky tape like Scor-Tape, and some scissors!!  I saw her tutorial, happened to grab some Melon Berry felt to practice the technique, and whaddya know!  A pumpkin idea grew...and grew....! 

The leaves are from the In Bloom set stamped on Ripe Avocado cardstock, and the sentiment is from Friendship Jar Fall Fillers (on a Tiny Tag die cut).  The little stem is some shimmery brown American Crafts ribbon tied with twine.  The patterned papers reminded me of the ones in the inspiration photo, and are from the 5&Dime Collection by October Afternoon.

Happy Fall y'all...I know I am from upstate New York but I HAD to say it :)!  Thanks for stopping by!

Tag Parade!

Last night I was in a crafty mood, but didn't seem to have the attention span to sit and work on one thing for very long!  I purchased the Bloom Builder #3 die from Papertrey Ink, and the Mini Rolled Rose die from My Favorite Things a few months ago, and felt that it was time to get them out (or use the flowers that I had already made)!

So I got out some patterned papers, tag dies, and favorite sentiments, and went to work making an all-occasion set of tags...

PTI Tag Sale #5, MFT Mini Rolled Rose die, sentiment from Say it Loud, Waltzingmouse Stamps, October Afternoon's 5&Dime patterned paper, PTI Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream, and Simple Chartreuse felt

PTI Tag Sale #5 die and Bloom Builder #3 die, sentiment from Frame-It, Waltzingmouse Stamps, PTI's Pure Poppy cardstock

PTI Tag Sale #3 die, 2011 Holiday Ornaments stamp set (and coordiating Nestabilities dies), Nordic Winter stamp set, both from Waltzingmouse Stamps, MFT Mini Rolled rose die, PTI's Vintage Cream felt

PTI Tag Sale #3 and Bloom Builders #3, dies, patterned paper from Pink Paislee's Queen Bee Collection, PTI's Tiny Tags die and stamp set and Scarlet Jewel cardstock

PTI's Bloom Builder #3 die and Tag Sale #5 die, patterned Paper from Pink Paislee's Queen Bee Collection, PTI's Harvest Gold cardstock

PTI's Tag Sale #5 die, MFT Mini Rolled Rose die, patterned paper from October Afternoon's Modern Homemaker Collection, sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame-It set, PTI's Harvest Gold and Simply Chartreuse felt

Now I'm like that girl "all dressed up, with no place to go"... hee!  But I am sure these tags will find homes on gifts in the near future!

Candy Cane Sketch

This week's sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog is by...well, ME!  It's a pretty simple little sketch...

Here is my card:

I used two new sets, Candy Jar Christmas-Fillers & a sentiment from Candy Jar Christmas.  After seeing this card by Jennifer Holmes during release week, I knew that my candy cane image was destined to be coated with glitter, too!  I could not stop thinking how pretty that card was, and kept going back to look at it!

Sparkly!  I used Copic markers to color it, and then covered it with Martha Stewart coarse clear glitter.  Distressed up some Divine Twine and added a silver bell.  The background paper is from the 5& Dime Collection by October Afternoon.

I can't wait to see what you make with this sketch!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, October 28th.  Be sure to include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your card to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Stamps:  Candy Jar Christmas & Candy Jar Christmas Fillers, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream cardstock, October Afternoon's 5& Dime patterned papers
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress inks, Antique Linen Distress Stain, Copic Markers
Other:  lace, Divine Twine, Martha Stewart coarse clear glitter, mini jingle bell, dimensionals

Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

It's time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Hop!  This month the theme is Gratitude/Thanksgiving

I made a little autumn scene with A Cottage Home, and leaves and a sentiment from Peace and Plenty.  Colored the cottage with Copic markers, and then popped it up with dimensionals. 

The background is made with the Woodgrain Impression Plate from Papertrey Ink.  I then found a basket of scraps from old patterned paper lines that I loved, and paper-pieced the maple leaf from Peace and Plenty

I am anxious to waltz around and see all of the inspiration for this theme.  You can never have too many thank you cards on hand!  There is still time to play along.  Just add your blog post to the link list of waltz participants seen HERE on the forum!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps:  A Cottage Home, Peace and Plenty, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  Vintage Cream, Fine Linen, Papertrey Ink
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa ink, Copic Markers, Tim Holtz Distress inks in Rusty Hinge, Antique Linen, and Walnut Stain
Other:  Woodgrain Impression plate, Papertrey Ink, circle nestie, cream satin ribbon

Waltzingmouse Stamps Release Day Blog Waltz!

Hello!  I am sure that you have arrived here on the waltz from Clare Buswell's blog, but if you got lost along the way you can head back to Claire Brennan's blog to see the full list!

Release day is finally here!  Claire saved 2 of the sweetest sets for last, Candy Jar Christmas and Candy Jar Christmas Fillers!  These sets are packed with adorable treats, and also pay homage to an underappreciated, but very productive, member of the North Pole Staff....MRS. CLAUS!!

I expect that a notebook just like this is tucked in good ole Mrs. Claus's purse!  I call this the "Black Friday" notebook!  For those of you that don't know, Black Friday is the shopping day after Thanksgiving here in the United States.  I made these a few years ago and gave one to my sister, niece, and friend when we met at a favorite store at 6:00 AM!  I tucked in in a clear bag with a candy bar and a pen, and called it their Black Friday Survival Pack (the chocolate was just in case we got hungry when waiting in a long line)! 

The circular label was made with images from the Candy Jar Christmas set, and the little bow is from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers The background is made with Gingham & Co., and a little poinsettia from Big Blooms-Poinsettias.  I think Mrs. Claus would approve of this print!  Hey, Santa Claus isn't the only one who makes a list, and checks it twice!

I just took a piece of cardstock, and scored it twice in the center to form a "book" around a little notepad.  I secured the pad to the back with red line tape.  On the other side, I made a little pocket.   I taped it down on the left and bottom side, so that there was room to tuck coupons inside!  The very important "No Peeking" sentiment is from Santa is Coming to Town!

Up next is the Candy Jar Christmas Fillers set!  My red ink pads left me a note on my stamping table this morning.  They said that they would like to be paid overtime for their extensive use during this release...this time I used Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress ink!

Each element of the jar is a separate image, but they are so easy to stamp, mix, and match!  Have you ever seen sweeter gingerbread?  They are embossed with white powder, and then (Claire's idea), I waterbrushed in some Tea Dye and Brushed Corduroy distress inks.  The little circular label at the top is from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers.  I stamped the little peppermint on the inside, as it was a perfect fit!

There you have it!  I have so enjoyed working with each set, and I cannot wait until these goodies arrive on your doorsteps!  REMEMBER:  Leave a comment on each DT Member's Blog as you waltz, as 1 random comment will be chosen, and the winner will receive a stamp set of choice!

Thanks so much for your sweet comments this week, they are so encouraging and appreciated!

And now, your next stop on the waltz......LYNN'S BLOG!

Cicely's Hat Sketch

Oh Claire and those Mischief Makers are up to something FUN at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog today!   Check out this week's sketch:

Heee!  That Claire!  I chose to accept this challenge, and made a little witch's hat tag!

I cut a little triangle from kraft paper, and then stamped it with the chevron stripes pattern from Off Beat Backgrounds in Black Soot Distress ink.  Decided those stripes would look just as good as the brim of the hat, so stamped them in orange and cut them out!  Stamped the circle from Cicely at Halloween, and colored it with Copic markers.  I thought some magical sparkle was in order, and used a Spica Pen in a peachy orange color, and a Sakura Stardust glitter pen...

The sparkle even hides some of my coloring mistakes :)!

Waltzingmouse Stamps October Preview, Day 3

Another fun day of previews at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  Today's two sets are festive and full of good cheer!

Up first is 2011 Holiday Ornaments, and you guessed it...they coordinate perfectly with the new Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament 2011 Nestabilities!

I used 4 ornaments from the set.  That little reindeer is a separate image, and can be stamped right into the plain mini ornament!  Same goes for the sentiment "Merry Christmas".  That ornament has an open space for text, and I am sure lots of Claire's past sets will have words that tuck in there quite nicely.  The background paper is from A Muse Studio.  Yes, that SU Cherry Cobbler ink is still getting a Christmas workout!

The second set is so much fun, you can tell just from the title:  "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"!

I couldn't choose what set to make the background with at first.  As I stamped, I found myself singing that song in my head, so Musical Backgrounds won out!  Used the knit patterned circle from Faux Fun Circles, and then cut along the edges to make a medallion shape. 

I stamped a lovely snowflake image from the set over the sheet music.  I used VersaColor Cardinal ink, and then just stamped off beforehand so that it looked a bit more "vintage".  The little vine is also from Faux Fun Circles.

Tomorow is Release Day!  Claire will be revealing the sets on her blog at 2:00 PM EST, and then there will be the Design Team Blog Waltz...with a prize involved for one lucky commenter.  See you then!

Now off you go to see what the rest of the Design Team has made with these two wonderful new sets!

Waltzingmouse Stamps October Preview, Day 2

You may have heard me shriek all the way from where I am, to where you are, when I caught my first glimpse of the set we are previewing today called Nordic Winter!  It is one of my favorite stamp sets of ALL TIME!  It will be released this Saturday, October 15th, and you will want to have this one on your list!

I KNOW!  I told you it was so good!  Of course, I had to pair it (no pun intended!) with one of my other faves Sewing Box-Christmas!  I had this idea about a pair of mittens, but the set comes with the one image seen on the right.  I heard this idea long ago on Splitcoast (when I was a beginner) about stamping a mirrored image, but I didn't quite understand it at the time!  It popped into my head today, and this is what I did...

I stamped the image directly onto an acrylic block with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, then quickly slapped a piece of cardstock on top.  I won't lie, it takes some practice and some extra cardstock!  Ohh, but when you get that good image, you might just jump up and down!  Since I was covering it with patterns from Nordic Winter, I knew it didn't have to be perfect!

I can barely believe that I stamped that background!  Claire's wonderful images make it easy to create one just like patterned paper!  The teeny heart and sentiment are also from Nordic Winter.

Next up is a card with the "stamp kissing" technique using Nordic Winter...

I inked a tree from Teeny Trees with VersaColor Bamboo ink, and then stamped this Nordic Winter pattern right onto the stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Crushed Olive. 

I then stamped the image on the cardstock, and cut it out with Spellbinders Beaded Oval Nestabilities. The snowflakes are also from Nordic Winter, and the dotted impression plate on the "hills" is from A Muse Studio.  Little Liquid Pearl dots are scattered about the card!

I could have kept going...and going....and going with Nordic Winter, but there are some other ladies who want to share projects with you today!  Be sure to check them out!  I will try not to be rude by cutting to the head of the line to see, too!

Waltzingmouse Stamps October Preview, Day 1

It's Christmas time at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  If the next 4 days don't have you singing carols and wishing for snowflakes in the air, then I don't know what will!  Claire has lined up an absolutely spectacular release this month.  I know you will all love it so much!  Up first is a holiday sequel to Rescue Remedies....

SEASONAL REMEDIES!  It will be released on Saturday, October 15th along with five other new sets!  I kid you not, this set practically makes projects by itself!  It is so amazing in it's detail.  Take a look...

Up first a little star tray all ready for some Christmas sweets...

Although it is hard to choose, this just might be my favorite label of them all.  I just love the sentiment and the old-fashioned flair! 

All this label needed was to be stamped in Versamark ink on PTI's Scarlet Jewel cardstock, and then heat embossed with white powder.  Seasonal Remedies coordinates with Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares Small, which makes layering it a breeze. The little plaid wrap is made using the double plaid strip from Off Beat Backgrounds.   Added some twine, buttons, a rusty jingle bell, and some gingham ribbon to finish it off. 

I found some little red bags on sale at Big Lots this past weekend...8 bags in a set for $2.40, woo hoo!  They match Stampin Up's Cherry Cobbler ink which has been a staple at my stamping table this week!

Perfect to have ready for quick wrapping or gift cards at the last minute.  This gorgeous label from Seasonal Remedies was topped with some holly from Festive Foliage

The tag shape coordinates with the largest die from Spellbinders Small Labels set.  I also cut the sentiment oval with the Classic Ovals Small set, and popped it up a bit.  Easy breezy, snowman freezy...giggle!

I cannot wait to see what the Design Team has created with Seasonal Remedies.  I am getting goosebumps from anticipation!  Here are the members who will be featuring projects today:

Swimming for Katie Renz, Blog Hop and Fundraiser!

From October 10-12, I am honored to be included in a group of wonderful stampers who will be joining together to support and encourage our friend and fellow stamper, Katie Renz.  Katie is currently battling stage 4 gastric cancer, and her story started just before Christmas last year. This young, beautiful, healthy, and vibrant mother of 3 was suddenly diagnosed with  inoperable cancer, virtually overnight. Her first post about it is HERE. The idea of “Swimming for Katie” came from her recent post HERE.

The exclusive (and adorable!) octopus stamp used in my sample, designed by Becky Oehlers, is available as a clear stamp, as well as a digis or a dig and SVG cut file. 100% of the profits from the sale of these images go to Katie's fund to help her and her young family. Katie, her husband Kevin, and her three young sons need our help and support. In addition to the Keep Swimming Octopus, Marianne Walker and True =D Doodle Designs both donated digis that are for sale, as well! 

Here are all of the items that are available for sale.

Information central is HERE. Direct donations are also being accepted!  This is a permanent page that will stay active at i {heart} papers with current information and the full 3 day blog hop listing, as well as the donation button.

I hope you will join me in supporting Katie through a purchase or donation! 
When your image arrives, be sure to post a project to your blog or online gallery and spread the word about this fund for Katie!

If you would like to send Katie a card, her mailing address is:

Simple Snowflake Sketch

Another lovely sketch from Claire this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog!

This week I turned the sketch to the left, and decided to make a clean and simple card.  I cannot even begin to tell you how difficult it was for me!  How do these CAS designers knock it out of the park every time?

I used Frame-It with a sentiment from Say It Loud-Winter Holiday.  Stamped the snowflake from Sewing Box-Christmas two times and popped the center layer up with a dimensional.  The little heart is also from Sewing Box-Christmas.  I stamped it with SU's Cranberry Crisp ink and then sponged the center with it, too.  Since embellishments were to remain in their respective drawers and baskets, I decided to use approximately 47 dimensionals instead (hee)!...

So which way will you go this week?  Sweet and simple, or luscious layers?  Whatever you choose, be sure to upload your creation HERE by next Friday, October 14th.  Be sure to include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project in order to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS stamp set of choice! might want to check Claire's blog today!  Last night I think I saw a SNEAK PEEK of something good (really, really, realllllly good) that's coming SOON!

Stamps:  Frame-It, Sewing Box-Christmas, Say It Loud-Winter Holiday, all Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream and Kraft
Ink:  SU Cranberry Crisp, VersaColor Umber, and PTI Fresh Snow
Other:  none...except for those dimensionals!!

Compliments and Pinecones Sketch

Happy October!  Happy World Card Making Day!  It's time to stop folding laundry, washing dishes, and mopping the floor in order to take time to be crafty.  In fact, it's time that you get a head start on some holiday tags using Claire's taggy sketch this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!

Here's mine:

Used the lovely pine bough from Festive Foliage, and sentiment from Compliments of the Season.  I used a whole die cut's worth of my much-loved basket weave paper from The Paper Company.  Usually I only use a snippet!  I bought the last sheet at our local store and am afraid that they don't seem to be re-stocking!

To add some dimension, I used the true paper tole technique (3 layers) on the big pinecone, and used 2 layers on the little one.  I fussy cut those pine needles and they're authentically sharp now!  Finally got some rusty jingle bells in 3 different sizes from an online shop called...Rusty Tin
Now it's your turn to play along.  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, and be sure to include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project, so you will be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant to win a stamp set of choice!

Stamps:  Festive Foliage, Compliments of the Season, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  basket weave specialty paper from The Paper Company, and PTI Vintage Cream cardstock
Ink:  VersaColor Bamboo and Evergreen, Color Box Chesnut, Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress inks, SU Cranberry Crisp
Other:  PTI Tag Sale #4 die, twine, gingham ribbon, paper piercer, circle punch, rusty jingle bell
