SPD Mix It Up Challenge - You're going places!

Hi all!  I'm so happy to be joining you today!  If you didn't know, my family and I moved from Oklahoma to Spring Branch, Texas last month.  It's been hectic, to say the least, but we're in our house and I can see a tiny little light at the end of the tunnel (made of boxes, ha!).  I actually have my craft nook set up just enough that I was able to make this card for the SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge today!  A little tip for getting back into card making when you've been away from it for a bit - pick an image, some designer paper and a cool sketch to get the mojo flowing again! I colored this cute scooter from the Wanderlust stamp set.  Yay for not forgetting how to color with Copics!  :D  I fussy cut it then layered it over the sentiment from the Going Places stamp set.  The designer paper is from the It's a Celebration paper pack.

Another task is finding the best place to take pictures of finished projects...

25 Days of Christmas Tags - Birch Press Design!

Hi all!  I'm happy to be participating in Tracy's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, this time featuring Birch Press Design stamps and dies!!!  

For my first tag, I used the Let It Snow stamp set and matching dies.  The 3 layered tree stamps were inked with two different green inks and stamped onto kraft card stock.  I then used some white pigment ink and an aqua brush to fill in some spots.  The sentiment and snowflakes are also from that set.


My second card features the Stewart Ornament die, which I cut out with green and silver foil paper.  I layered it onto a die cut circle that I had stamped 'merry' on from the Brushed Christmas Greetings stamp set in grout gray ink.


For my last tag, I watercolored some paper with red and green distress inks then used the Mini Poinsettia die.  I layered the poinsettias and added chunky silver glitter to the centers.  The sentiment is from the Let It Snow stamp set and is embossed with gold EP.  I embossed it twice so that it has a slight shadow effect.


Be sure to stop by Tracy's BLOG to see all of the tags featured today and to see how you can win a Birch Press Design gift certificate!

25 Days of Christmas Tags - Lil Inker Designs!

Hi all!  I'm happy to be playing along with the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Hop coordinated by the sweet Tracy McNeely!  I made a trio of tags using Lil Inker Designs stamps and dies.  For the first one, I used the newly released 'Tis the Season stamp set.  I colored it with Copics then sponged some blue ink around the edge.


The second and third tags I made are pretty clean and simple which I think is PERFECT when you have lots of tags to make.  Plus Christmas is a busy time, so whenever I can simplify something during that time - sign me up!  Both tags have sentiments from the All the Christmas You'll Ever Need stamp set.  I freaking love the movie Elf, so I sponged this tag to match this sentiment ;)  I also added big plops of water then dabbed it with a paper towel to remove the ink to add some 'character' to the sponging.


For my last tag, I added a die cut tree from the Rustic Christmas stamp set (using the matching dies), along with a few trees lightly stamped in the background.  I masked off a 'hill' to sponge on the sky, then added some green sponging to the bottom.


Please be sure to swing by Tracy's BLOG for the full list of today's hop participants!  Comment along the way for a chance to win some goodies!

Lil Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop - Day 3!

Hi all!  Welcome to the final day of the LID New Release Blog Hop!


And in case you missed it yesterday, you now have the chance to win the ENTIRE RELEASE!!!


 For today's card I used the Baubled Wreath die and the Merry Christmas Border die.  Love, LOVE!!!  I used a few different shimmery papers to cut out the wreath so I had a variety to choose from when filling in all the circles.  The wreath itself was cut out of gold foil paper.  This was so fun and therapeutic to make!  :)




And did I mention you could win the ENTIRE RELEASE just by commenting along the hop!?!??!!!  How awesome is that!?  Be sure to finish up the hop over at the LID store to check out ALL of the goodies and shop, shop, SHOP :)

Thanks for stopping by!

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge - Coffee Solves Everything

*If you're here for the Lil Inker Designs post, please scroll down*

Hi all!  Yay for Hump Day and another SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge!  I went with the sketch and inked up the fun Caffeine Addict stamp set.  I colored the cup with Copics.  The edges of the green layer were inked up with Versamark ink - swiped might be a better word, lol!  Then I embossed it with gold embossing powder.  The steam heart was also stamped with Versamark ink.  For the sentiment, I stamped 'solves everything' with chocolate brown ink, then inked up 'Coffee', but off-stamped it once before stamping it onto the card stock.  I wanted it to be a bit lighter than the second half to the sentiment.  Clear as mud?  ;)
