My Favorite Things...GDT Challenge...Stitch it Up...Very Happy Birthday!

Photobucket

Good morning crafty friends! I thought I would give the GDT challenge over at My Favorite Things a go! The challenge is....Stitch it Up.....well, I'm sooooo not a sewer but I thought I would do my usual faux stitching with my stitching stamps and I also added a very little bit of hand stitching.  I did ask for a sewing machine for Christmas cuz I just love the look of machine stitching on cards but I got my pressie early...my iMac computer. I don't think I will be getting the sewing machine now but I am very happy with my mac so I can't complain,smile. Well, I am not sure I have much of a chance at winning the GDT spot as there are so many talented MFT fans out there who are sooooo good with the sewing machine but I needed to make a card anyways and I love how it turned out.

My daughter's BFF is turning 11 year old this week so this is her b-day card! I inked up sweet Birthday Ballon Jolinne and coloured her with my Copics. I made an easel card, my fave, with AC and Bazzill cardstock and used BG Olivia 6x6 pp. I added a doily that I spritzed with Glimmer Mists in Hula Hoop and Patina. I added stamped stitching to all the layers with Kelly Panacci Acrylic stitching stamps and stamped with Distress ink in Chipped Sapphire. I added a BG Olivia Canvas tag and embellished with a cork heart that I cross stitched on and a button. I added a QuicKutz tag and cut the number 11 from a QuicKutz alphabet out of the QuicKutz cork material too. The "Smile" sentiment in the BG Canvas heart tag is a Melissa Frances rub-on. I used the notebook edge die-namics die and Die-namics Framed Greetings stamp and die set on this card too. I also added some of this scrumptious and shimmery ribbon and sewed my button like I have seen, Joanne B. from Just a Little Something, do here in her buttony bow tutorial.


Photobucket
Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed and my toes too...eeekkkkk! I would sooooooooo love to be the MFT GDT for January. MFT has the December release coming up and a release party over on the MFT forum at Splitcoast Stampers on Wednesday December 1st, where they will announce the winner of the GDT challenge. If you are interested in joining the MFT GDT challenge you have until November 30 at 10:00 p.m EST...all the details are here!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my MFT GDT card!

My Favorite Things...WSC Challenge...SIZE MATTERS!

Photobucket

Hey! I am back to share a card I made this weekend for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge. This week the challenge (MFTWSC11242010) is Thankful for....! I have had this idea for this card for a while now and thought it was the perfect opportunity to whip up this cheeky thank you card! I am totally loving my A La Modes stamps and this girlie, Miss you a Latte, is my fave at the mo, with her huge take-out coffee cups...I am totally thankful for good coffee and for good friends...and I know just the friend to give this card to,smile!  

Photobucket

So for my card I used October Afternoon papers mostly from the Very Merry Collection but I think one of the papers is from another collection. I coloured the image, Miss you a Latte, with my Copics and cut it out and pop-dotted on the Nestie die. I decided that this large green felt flower, that I have had in my stash for a while, would be perfect for this card and I stitched on a BG button with embroidery floss. I also added some crinkled seam binding and tied it in a double bow and added another BG button with embroidery floss. I thought it would be fun to use this "tongue in cheek" sentiment from my the MFT Twisted Sentiments set with the bottom sentiment from the MFT Essential Sentiments set. When it comes to coffee, size, certainly, does matter,lol!

Well, thank you grande for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #74....Summer-time theme....Memories of Summer!


Photobucket

Hello friends! it is time for a new challenge over at Magnolia Down Under challenges and this week the challenge is....Summer-time! What a nice departure this was from all the Christmas card making that I have been doing. I really enjoyed this challenge! I hope you can join us this week! Just remember that you need to use at least one Magnolia stamped image on your creation! The MDUC DT has gorgeous creations to share and to inspire you. Pop on over to the MDUC blog and visit the DT to see all their gorgeous creations!

Photobucket

I used a mixture of October Afternoon papers...very summery, I think. I also wanted to ink up this sweet image called Circus Tilda...to me she looks like a proper, Southern Belle, all dressed up, perhaps sitting out on the veranda, sipping a lemonade. I thought she would be perfect for this card. I used the Magnolia Summer background stamps to set the summery scene. I coloured all the images with my Copics and I cut the background image out with my circle Nesties and cut out Tilda and pop dotted her on the card. I used a little cotton lace trim and AC ribbon. I stamped one of the Catslife Press label stamps on craft card and the other sentiments are Melissa Frances rub-ons.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my MDUC DT card!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 56....Seeing Spots!

Hey Krafty friends!!!! I am back with another post this morning! We have another fabulously fun challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog today! This week, The Queen of all things Krafty, Kraftin' Kimmie, herself, has set the challenge and she would like to see spots and dots on your creation!

So get out your spotty paper or dotty ribbon and join us! If you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your creation then you will be entered into the draw for some KKStamps rubbah! Kimmie has used the sweet Lavender the Quilter on her beautiful card and you could win a Lavender stamp of your very own!

So for my card...well, I actually made 3 cards but I kept them really simple, so they were easy to put together. I thought it would be good to have some smaller note size cards on hand for those times when you need a Christmas card and fast. I used this absolutely adorable image called Mice Angels by Steven Leary! I coloured the images with my Copics and used Prism cardstock and BG Jovial 6x6 paper and some BG Wassail and Jovial brads.

Photobucket

I also added some Stickels to the images and used some ribbon from my stash. The sentiments are from Kimmie's Holiday Sentiment set. I am quite happy with how these turned out and they were sooooo quick to put together....love that! I think I might make a few more,smile.

Well, I hope you can join us at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge this week! Please stop by the KKStamps challenge blog and see all the beautifully spotty and dotty creations by the Krafty Girls!

Have a stampin' great day!

BasicGrey Challenges # 34....A Recipe....No Peeking, Edwin!


Good morning crafty friends! We had a little treat this week! A Cirque Du Soleil show called Dralion has come to our city. We got tickets, so, my Mom and Dad, Chris, the kids and I, all went to see it on Wednesday night and it was absolutely amazing, as always!!!! This was the 5th Cirque show that Chris and I have been to. I love Cirque Du Soleil! If you ever get a chance to see one I highly recommend it! 

So it is the weekend, YAY! My fave time; my crafty time, that I look forward to all week! I am in serious Christmas card mode and I am really enjoying it! I've even been making some cards during the week!  So, it is time for a fun challenge at BG Challenges. This fortnight we have a fabulous recipe challenge! I hope you can join us! Please swing by the BasicGGrey Challenges blog and see all the stunning creations by the super talented BG DT they are sure to inspire! 

The Recipe

4 Different Types of Embellishments(You can have as many of each type as you wish, as long as there are 4 different kinds, for example Ribbon, Pearls, Flowers, Charms etc etc)
3 Different Patterned Papers
(You can have as many plain matting papers as you wish, just as long as there are 3 patterned papers)
1-2 Images and/or 1-2 Sentiments(You can choose to have up to 2 in either of these, or even both if you wish)

Photobucket

I decided to ink up this sweet Edwin! I totally neglect poor Edwin and he is a doll too! I really need to use him more. I love how he is clutching his we pressie! So, again I embossed the Magnolia tree with Northern Lights embossing powder and coloured Edwin with my Copics and cut him out. He is pop-dotted on the card. I made an easel card from Bassill cardstock and matted with some kraft cardstock and used 3 different sheets of BG Jovial 6x6 papers. I absolutely love this paper to bits. I stamped the stitching with my Kelly Panacci stamps and Distress ink. I added the No Peeking sentiment by Kelly Panacci on a QK tag. my 4 different embellies are a Jovial Brad, pearls, red velvet AC ribbon and Prima and WOC flowers. The sentiment on the bottom of the easel card is from the Magnolia Merry Little Christmas 2010 Collection.

Cute Card Thursday # 140...You Light up My Life!

Photobucket

Hey crafty friends! Hope everyone is keeping well! Has the weather turned cold on you yet? Well, it is  starting to get really cold here. Winter is on its way I'm afraid and this year they are predicting a good old fashioned Canadian winter for us. I guess we are due, since last year we didn't have any snow to speak of. Well, I have an appointment to get the old snow tires put on the van on Saturday. So, I should be good and ready for the white stuff,smile!

Well, enough weather talk (a Canadian past time, smile) I have a card to share with you today! I made it for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday! They have a really neat idea for the challenge....A Blast from the Past...so we are to pick one of the previous CCT challenges but not the free for all challenge. So, I have picked Challenge # 129, A Play on Words!

Photobucket

As I have said I am in serious Christmas card making mode, so, once again, I have made an easel card and used BG Jovial 6x6 papers! I used this adorable Magnolia stamp, Tilda in a Winter Night, from the Merry Little Christmas 2010 collection! I absolutely adore her and I loved colouring her with my Copcis. I cut her out with my rectangle Nesties using the "Out of the Box" technique and left the image in the die and inked with Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress ink! I cute the Magnolia border die from MFT My Favorite Felt and I used this great sentiment, perfect for the Play on Word Challenge, from the MFT WTG, Winter in the City stamp set. I also used my Magnolia flourish die and cut it from some glittery cardstock and I cut MFT Die-namics snowflakes from the glitter cardstock too. I layered the snowflakes with the Prima and WOC roses. I added a few white half pearls here and there and some crushed black velvet ribbon....I love velvet with plaid...it's the perfect combo, me thinks. I also added Sakura Glaze pen to Tilda's lantern but it didn't show up in the pic. 

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Hope you have a stampin' great day!

My Favorite Things...WSC Challenge...Make a Wish!

Photobucket

Hello crafty friends! I am back with another card to share that I made this evening to enter the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge and I'm just getting it in under the wire. You also get a bit of a reprieve from Christmas cards, lol, as I needed to make a b-day card for a friend. I thought it was the perfect time to ink up one of my A La Mode stamps from MFT for the first time....and....I'm totally hooked on these sweeties!!!
Photobucket
So, the challenge this week is to be inspired by the song My Favorite Things from the movie The Sound of Music. Well, I was inspired by the line "....crisp apple strudels" now, I know this isn't exactly an apple strudel but it's a close as I am going to get to the yummy pastry, me thinks, smile!

So, I inked up, A La Mode Time to Celebrate with her rather large and delish looking cake, I added the candles that comes in the set and coloured her with my Copics. I cut the image out with my new Nesties and left the image in the die and inked with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I also made a thin mat by cutting around the outer edge of the die with my Fiskers Finger Grip craft knife. I need a new blade so don't look too closely,smile!  I made an easel card 5 3/8X6 and used BG Green at Heart and some AC cardstock and ribbon! I decided to cut these MFT Die-namics flowers and these Die-namics Flowers from My Favorite Felt in brown and cream from the Banana Split collection. I added BG Green at heart brads to the centres and added ribbon leaves. I also cut the Die-namics scalloped scallop border from the cream coloured My Favourite felt.  The sentiment Make a wish is from the WTG Birthday set and the bottom sentiment is from the Time to Celebrate set and stamped on the MFT Die-namics Framed Greetings Die and stamp set. To finish the card off I added a little Stickles to the candles and icing.

I had fun making this card tonight and it was nice to take a break from the Christmas cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Hugs,

JM #83 and WOC #10...Happy Holidays!

Good morning friends! I am back again this morning with another Christmas card am afraid you may get sick of seeing Christmas cards from me as that is pretty much all I am making at the mo! I made this one for the fabulous challenge over at Just Magnolia...White + one other colour! I am also entering this card into the Blue Christmas Challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge...my card is more a greenish blue...so I hope it counts!

Photobucket

So, again, I made an easel card, I love making them and I actually find them quicker to make than a 6x6 tent card. They're also a big hit with my friends and family...they love getting easel cards. I used BG Jovial with AC cardstock. I finally broke down and used some of this gorgeous Satin pleated ribbon from MFT that I got in one of my VIP kits. It is so silky and shimmery IRL...just scrumptious! I added some white cotton lace trim over it and I added a white WOC gardenia (I believe this is a large flat gardenia) and some Prima flowers with BG Wassail White brads. I sprinkled some blue half pearls here and there. I used my Catslife Press stamps, a Melissa Frances Rub-on and the bottom sentiment is from a clear Acrylic stamp set that I got at Micheals. I think this Tilda is so sweet and I loved colouring her with my Copics. I added some Smooch Illuminate Pealized Top Coat, that I just got, to her too...so sparkly!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Have a stampin' great day!

Friday Sketchers # 129....Tidings of Comfort and Joy!

Photobucket

Good morning crafty friends! Just a quick post this morning to share a card that I made with the beautiful sketch over at Friday Sketchers! I am in Christmas card mode...not sure how many I will get made! As always, I have left it to the last minute!

I really love how the silver embossed Christmas Tree turned out on my Spoon Full of Sugar card so I embossed a bunch of trees (mass production) with Northern Lights embossing powder and I am going to make my cards all along the same design. So, for this card I used this sweet Tilda that came in my StampClub kit and coloured her with my Copics and cut her out. I am making all my cards easel cards with BG Jovial. I added some AC ribbon and some Prima flowers with pearls! The sentiment "Tidings of Comfort and Joy" is from an acrylic stamp set that I got at Michaels.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I need to get back to my room  as I still have a bunch more to make....eeekkkk!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge # 127...Merry Christmas Mail & Let it Snow!

Hey crafty friends! Just a quick post to share two cards that I made with this adorable Penny Black Stamp, Royal Mail. I have just discovered Penny Black's sweet little Mimi stamps...totally love her to bits....she is soooooo cute! I made these cards to be displayed at Crop Circles in Peterborough. I used BoBunny Winter Joy collection also from Crop Circles....I just love this paper and these non-traditional colours are so pretty. Perfect with this sweet wintry scene of Mimi off to mail a card. I made these cards CAS...can you believe it....no flowers, pearls, bling...just one sparkly Winter Joy BoBunny brad and a little ribbon. I really like how they turned out.

Photobucket

I coloured Mimi with my Copics and I cut the images out with my Circle Nesties. I also used my Favourite Kelly Panacci Christmas sentiment stamps on these cards and my fave QuicKutz photocorner die and tag die...on the top card I added Stickles and on the bottom card I used Polar White Flowersoft...love that stuff.


Photobucket

I found the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and this week the challenge is to use All My Favourite things...I have lots of faves on these cards...so I am entering these cards in PBSC!

Whiff of Joy Challenges # 92...A sketch by Me and WOJ Challenges DT Call!

Photobucket
Good morning crafty friends! I hope you're all having a great week so far! It is Wednesday my fave day as it is almost the weekend,lol! It is also time for a fun challenge over at Whiff Of Joy Challenges and this week we have a sketch by little ol' me, eekkk, hope you like it! I hope you can join us and give my sketch a go! Please visit the WOJC DT as they all have gorgeous creations sure to inspire you! Remember to please use a WOJ stamp to be eligible for the prize.

Here is my sketch....



Now, on a sad note, I have decided it is time to stepped down from the WOJ challenges DT and this challenge is my last DT Challenge but I am sure not my last WOJ challenge.  I have soooooo enjoyed my time on the WOJ Challenges team, with such a fabulous and talented group of ladies! So,  we are having a WOJC DT call to add to the team...so why not join in just add the letters DT after your name!
Photobucket
 I have had this idea for this card for a while as I really wanted to use Business Willow with these Melissa Frances rub-ons. I thought this would be a great card for a friend who just landed the dream job or big promotion at work. So for my card, I pulled out my beloved Echo Park Life is Good pp and I stamped up Business Willow and coloured her with my Copics.

I made a crinkled seam binding bow with seam binding I dyed and crinkled myself. It was originally white Hug Snug seam binding but I spritzed it with water and Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist (you might want to wear gloves unless you like having red fingers,smile). Then I crinkled it all up in a ball and squished it into the corner of a plastic sandwich bag, secured it with an elastic band and let it sit overnight. The next day, I took it out and let it air dry as it was still a bit damp and there you have it....crinkled seam binding...super easy! Really you only need to get white seam binding if you have a large selection of Glimmer Mist and you can dye your own in any colour. I also added a few Prima flowers and some half pearls here and there.

Here is the inside sentiment...
Photobucket

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you get some crafty time over the next two weeks and can join us at the WOJ Challenges....try my sketch and enter the DT call!

Have a stampin' great day!

Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge...Guest DT...Distressing...Merry Christmas!

Photobucket

Good morning crafty friends! I am so excited to share the card that I made for the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge! My sweet blogging friend, Ingrid, asked me if I would be a guest designer for this week's challenge, and, of course, I said,YES! What an absolute honour! Thanks so much for asking me, Ingrid!
Ingrid has set the challenge this week and she would like to see some Distressing! Well this is right up my alley!

So, for my card, I reached for some of my fave new BG Jovial papers and distressed the edges with my new favourite tool, my Distrezz-it-All! I also, painted the edges of the paper with Picket Fence Crackle paint and inked with Distress inks. I then decided to use this Magnolia tree stamp that came in my stamp club kit. I just love silver Tinsel Christmas tress so I decided to make one for Tilda. I stamped the tree with Tim Holtz embossing ink and then used Northern Lights embossing powder to get this beautiful silver tinsel tree. I then inked up this sweet Tilda. I think she is from last years Christmas stamps but Ijust got her! I coloured her with my Copics and I used my toner Copic markers for the first time and I love them!!! I used them on Tilda's dress to get a more subdued blue green colour and it worked. I used my VersaMagic pen and went over the tinsel in Tilda's hands and then embossed it with the Northern Lights embossing powder too....love this stuff...think you will be seeing a lot of it,smile!

Photobucket

I embellished with some satin ribbon and lace dyed with Glimmer Mist. The bingo card is by Making Memories and I added a Melissa Frances rub-on and a few pearls here and there. I finished it off with some Prima Poinsettias and used a BG Jovial Glazed Brad.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I want to thank Ingrid and all the fabulous designers at Spoon Full of Sugar for letting me join them this week! I hope you get a chance to visit all their blogs and see their gorgeous creations and then join the fun and get distressing!

Happy Stampin'!

So on to my card....I needed to make a B-day card this week for my friend and co-worker and I was tight on time. So I used one of my PI stamps from My Favorite Things as they make such cute and quick cards... gotta love that! So I decided to use Fairy Girl PI stamp as she has wings and that is the Challenge this week at BG Challenges! I coloured her with my Copics and paper pieced her dress. I made my cardbase from Prism cardstock and did a BG mix and match, using papers from 3 different BG 6x6 paper pads...Jovial (looooovvve it), Oliver and just a bit from, Olivia! I also used my Kelly Panacci Stitching Stamps and I used the MFT Di-namics Perfect Bracket edge die. I embellished with some Prima flowers, cotton lace trim and AC ribbon! The sentiment is from one of the older Essential Sentiment sets from MFT and I stamped it on a QuicKutz tag and, of course, I had to add Stickles to Fairy Girl's wand and wings. I used my Viva Decor Pearl pen to add little pearls to her fairy slippers!


Here is the inside....I used the the Di-namics Framed Greetings sentiment stamp and die.
