Christmas All Year

Jessie and I spent the day in Tallahassee yesturday on a date. We are still trying to make up for me being gone all week last week. We went to Olive Garden for lunch then to Harbor Freight, Joanne's and Wal Mart. I LOVE the Walmart in Bradforville. We got home just in time for the kids to get there and dressed for the Halloween Fall Festive at Temple. They had a blast. I will have some pics later today.

Now onto today's creation. This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER # 195 - Cherylquilts. I chose to CASE her GIVE THANKS BUTTERFLY. I changed the colors & theme, left of the butterfly, used dp, and made my border straight rather than curvy.
I used a sheet of Jolly by Golly dp that matched the brand new Fiskars border punch I just got at Joanne's Saturday for Saturday's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE # 256 - Destiny's Creation finding my inspiration from this lovely Bell'Arco Necklace. I adhered a thin strip of red cs behind the border punch section and doodled around the corners of my white panel with my new red spica glitter pen. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up's All Year Cheer I in Sage Shadow tied a red ribbon with a bow and was done. Hope you like it and have a fabulous day in the spotlight Cheryl, your gallery is amazing.

Paper Pieced Framed Christmas Favorites

This is for today's FREE 4 ALL CHALLENGE # 36 - Rummage & Scavenging practice; Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 294 - Frames; Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 304; and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 294 - Breezy Blushing Cakes.
Today I actually put ink to rubbah!! YEAH! There are parts of digi images that I love and parts about rubbah that I love, being able to paper piece is one of the many things I love about rubbah. I used a Christmas set from last year's release from TREEHOUSE STAMPS - Christmas Favorites. I used my black SU marker to ink the stocking so I could omit the circles from the image since my dp already had circles. I stamped 3 of the snowflakes randomly on blushing bride panel 1 and baja breeze panel 3 in baja breeze then doodles some dots around. I used the scrap left over from panel 2 to paper piece my stocking as well as some baja breeze scraps. My image was cut out and popped up on the oval Nestie and then Label 10 Nestie for framing. I adhered 6 pink gems on the Nestie Label 10 panel. I have a granddaughter who already thinks she is a "queen" so this will be her card this year. I hope she likes it.

Paper: baja breeze, blusing bride, Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly dp

Things That Go Bump In the Night..

Howdy fellow stampers and followers. Today is Thursday already and that means it is time for another challenge from Treehouse. So this is for today's TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE # 073 - Things that go BUMP in the night! Now I am not one to delibertly defy the normal I just love to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX as much as I can. So Jessie nor I watch horror movies and while I love to see the look on kids eyes as they go trick-or-treatin I never have been a great fan of Halloween SO things that go bump in the night at my house usually tend to be Jessie in his workshop banging and pounding on wood.
I used a sentiment and some images from Tool Time Digi Set from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE. I colored the images, cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals. I used a ruler to frame around my tag.
Now wanta see what the rest of the design team made for this fun challenge? Check out their blogs:

New Baby Boy

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 304. I used the colors from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 294 - Breezy Blushing Cakes and the Argyle embossing folder from Cuttlebug is for Tuesday's dessert and was embossed after inking the negative side with baja breeze ink on crumb cake cs.
My precious image is New Baby from KLM DIGI DESIGNS and the sentiment is also from KLM that will be released in November. It is colored with copics D50, D51, E53, R20 & R22, cut out and popped up on deminsionals. I sponged some baja breeze around the white layer with the sentiment on it to tone it down some. The sheer blue ribbon tails were heated with the hot gun to make them twist. A fellow coworker just found out she is having a baby boy so this is for her. Hope you like it.

It's A Girl Sneak Peek

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 294 - Breezy Blushing Cake. It has taken me longer to get a good picture then it did to make this, ggrrr. I do not know why my coloring looks orange but it really is pink, trust me. I used copics R11, R20, R21, BG000, BG72, BG75, E41, E42 & E43 for coloring then cut out the umbrella and adhered it to the pink gingham dp that is matted on blushing bride 3X3 gift card.
The tag is a darling designed sentiment due for release in November from KLM DIGI STAMPS COMPANY and is cut with the large oval then popped up. I added an eyelet with some pink gingham ribbon through it. The gingham ribbon and dp are for Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 90 - Gingham and checks. Hope you like it. See everyone in the challenges tomorrow, off to work I go.

A Cardinal Christmas

This is for several challenges since I have been away in Boston all week and could not play I combined as many as I could. So this is for:
Today's FEATURED STAMPER # 194 - Lynniepoo. I chose to CASE her CHICKADEE SPEEDY RECOVERY.
Saturday's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE # 255 - Poster Cabaret finding my inspiration from this CARDNIAL MURAL.
Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 303.
Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Concord Cherry Olives.
Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 295 - Make It Shimmer.
I did not have any perfect pearls so I had to use my shimmer white cs to have shimmer. I changed the colors, layout and theme of my CASED card. I used argyle EF rather than score lines. It is so great to be able to stamp again. I was so suffering from DT's.

Vintage Santa

This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER # 193 - Imamuttnut. I chose to CASE Laurie's WATERCOLOR TRIO THANK YOU. I love the layout and it worked perfect for my image. I changed the colors and theme and replaced the oval sentiment with some punched ferns topped with red gems to simulate holly and berries.
I colored this darling image up last Saturday when Shannon was over here and have been trying to find a way to use it. Today was the perfect chance especially since it might just be my LAST chance to upload for a whole week.
I will be in Boston for training and so far from my supplies (insert pout here). I will be in DT's by Tuesday at the latest. I have to stamp every day.
OK onto today's creation. I colored this "VINTAGE SANTA" digital image from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITIAL LINE using copics then applied some stickles to the brim and ball of the hat and to his sleeves. I just think they should sparkle. This fabulous image can be yours for free with a $20 purchase so go shopping and get yours now.
I bought this darling ribbon almost a month ago and today finally was able to use it. Can you believe it? Just 1 challenge? Well I did turn a year older yesturday. LOL. Ya know it seems like after I hit 50 that hill I had been climbing turned into the slickest snow slope you could image and I am on a downward fast track. Things that go bump in the night have turned into things that go POP in the night, my back and knees when I get up. LOL.

THT071 Candy Wrapped Hershey Slider

Here it is Thursday all over again and the best thing about Thursday's are that means the next day is Friday and it also means it is time for another challenge from Treehouse. This week's TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE # 071 is Candy Wrappers. Whoo Hoo and just in time for trick-or-treaters too. I love to make candy bar sliders. They are so quick and easy. I used some black cs and topped it off with some Ghostly Greetings dp from Stampin Up. My sentiment layer is from a set called "TRICK OR TREAT" and it can be found at TREEHOUSE STAMPS. I stamped the sentiment in tangerine tango and the tree and moon in black after stamping off. Here is a yummy view of the candy bar out of the slider pocket. Hope you like it and come on play along. You could win a $5 shopping spree for a digi set from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE. Ashley does a weekly random drawing from the list of players.

Wet Paper Water Lilies

OK so this morning I made this and worked for over 1 hr trying to get it loaded. This afternoon I finally figured out (with Shannon's help) that my router box was the problem. I disconnected it and ran my internet straight to my PC tower and viola I was back on line. So Here I am late this evening finally getting this loaded. This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 292 - Pirouette Red Pizzazz. I love these colors together with one exception (real red). I do not know what is going on with my ink pad but it is ooee gooee and in a mess. I went to work this morning with red hands. LOL. Anyway, I also used Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 294 - Wet Paper Stamping. My image is from Flourishes "Water Lily" set. I love this darling set and the images in it were perfect for these challenges.
I stamped the largest lily in pink then in red after my wet watercolor paper was dry.
My layout is from Monday's LIZZIE ANNE DESIGNS SKETCH # 146. I punched the scalloped circle and doodled around the edges then popped it up. My lily is cut out and popped up. I crumbled the top panel of basic gray dp in my hand then smoothed it out for Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 88 - Crinkled. I distressed the edges of my pear pizzazz base panel with my scissors and ink distressed the edges of my dp panels with pink pirouette for today's FLOURISHES TIMELESS TUESDAY CHALLENGE # 88 - Ink and Edge Distressing. I tied a pink and red ribbon on the bottom panel.

I used a leaf that I picked up yrs ago from the dollar bin at Micheals for my wet paper stamping and stamped 1st in so saffron then over it after drying with tangerine tango. I then added some watercoloring to fill it in as well as some irridescent red and green water coloring for shimmer then cut it out, crinked it up in my hand a bit and popped it up on my vanilla layer that was stamped in so saffron with a darling background stamp also from the dollar bin then sponged the edges with tangerine tango and matted on tangerine tango. My So Saffron layer was stamped in so saffron with the main leaf image. I used my Fiskars leaf border punch in rich razzleberry. My base is very vanilla. Here are a couple of close ups of that leaf. I love how it turned out and wanted you to see the shimmer better.
I also truely love the changing colors of leaves this time of year. They are just marvelous to watch and I wish I could see the change as it occurs but it seems that one day they are all pretty and green and the next time I look they are orange and green and yellow and then they are gone. Oh Well. Now off to work to start a brand new week. Happy Monday everyone.

THT070 Spooky Colored Dino Kid

Today is Thursday and that means it is time for another Treehouse Thursday challenge. this weeks challenge is to use "spooky colors". I used some Recollections Halloween dp and the colors in it for my darling image. This image is called "DINO KID" and can be purchased at TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE. I am sooo loving digital images these days. There is just so much you can do with them like flip them to the opposite direction if you need them to be facing left and they are facing right, resize them to meet your needs, need them now rather than 3 weeks from now, etc.
Ok so I colored my image with copics, ran a strip of halloween ribbon across my dp and tied my bow right where the bag is hanging so it looked like the bow was tied on the bag. Pretty clevah'
huh? LOL. Anyway, come on and play along with us, you know you want to. Label your upload to SCS, PCP or any other crafty site you use as THT070, provide a link to your blog post over at TREEHOUSE STAMPS BLOG on the post for today's challenge and you could win a free $5 digi set from THS. I love freebies don't you?
Now my fellow dt members have really worked up some kewl samples so make sure to check them out as well:

Sassy Studio Devil

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 293 - You're The Splitting Image and today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 87 Faux Letterpress. I used my cuttlebug Pumpkin Harvest embossing folder on vanilla cs after inking with pumpkin pie ink for these 2 challenges, split it down the middle, then matted on vanilla cs. I used some real red and pumpkin pie cs for my 2 strips and matts for my focal image. Now let's talk about my focal image. Shannon called last night with one of those "you gotta see these" calls. $50 later I am printing them out. I love digi images because as soon as you see what you want you can have it. This image was just screaming to be used. I colored this sassy little she-devil with copics and added some stickles to the pumpkin. This is also for Sunday's COWGIRL'S SUNDAY CHALLENGE - Anything Goes. My layout is from last Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 300. WOW I have never seen so many uploads in the SC.

Because I Care

This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER # 191 - alimarbles. Congratulations Alison. I chose to CASE her GLIMMERRING HYDRANGEA. I changed the layout, colors, and left off the ribbon.
I just had to have this set as soon as I started seeing uploads with it and when I got it I wore it out. It was collecting some dust so I brought it back out again for some luvin'. I stamped the image in Momento Tuxedo Black on white cs then colored with copics, adhered some tissue paper, cut and embossed using Nesties Label 10 and then stamped the sentiment on top of the tissue in basic gray. I then used some glitter spray on the entire panel for some shimmer. I tried again to use my color spritzer and I am convinced I am tool challenged. I just can not get an even flow like I want with it. I made a matching candle to go along with my card for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 292 - Stamping on Tissue just because I love to make these candles and have not made one in a while.
My layout is from Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 300. I used a strip of rose red and daffodil delight after running it through the cuttlebug machine with swiss dots embossing folder.
My color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 290 - Basic Rose Delight with old olive as my dessert option. I hope all my cyber friends have a fabulous Sunday.

Joy To The World

This is for today's FREE 4 ALL CHALLENGE # 32 - A Hole In One. How fun. I had this image printed and did not know what I was going to do with it. It started out as one piece and with the help of today's challenge, my cuttlebug machine and Rectangle Nesties it became a hole in one. I love it. I used 2 different size Nesties to cut and emboss then used my score pal to score the lines around the inside of the largest panel that is popped up on dimensions.

I cut out one of the flower images and popped it up on the sentiment panel which is matted on basic gray. My layout is Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 300. My color combo is Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 290 - Basic Rose Delight. My images and sentiment are from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE called "JOY TO THE WORLD" and "WONDER OF CHRISTMAS" and will be released today. Hope you like it.

I made this darling Halloween treat card with Recollections Halloween pack from last year. See a year has past and I still can not stop using it. I still love it. I used Nesties Label 2 to cut and emboss my image. I sponged some rich razzleberry ink around the nestie then colored the image with copics

Show me what you can do with this darling halloween cupcake treat. My focal image is popped up on the right, left and bottom sides and the sucker was slid behind the image. I did the sentiment on the computer.
