Try Stamping on Tuesday!

My week again to post for the Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge!  And we are back to doing both a sketch and a twist.  This week's twist is to use the colors Orange, Yellow and Brown.  Here is my sample.....

I love the tree in this Hostess stamp set, Nuts About You.  I mixed it with the Color Me Autumn DP for the cute little anniversary card.  (or maybe just a love you card)  The little heart carved in the tree that says You & Me is my favorite!  Here is this week's sketch...


And the supplies used for my card...

Stamps Nuts About You, greeting set?
Paper: Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White and Color Me Autumn DP
Ink: Soft Suede
Other: markers, candy dots.

Hope your week is starting off great!  Thanks for stopping by.  See you soon.

Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 331 (TSSC331)

Yippee!  What a fun weekend--my son won his first football game, my great  niece turned 3 and had a big party, the Buffalo Bills won their first game, our new vicar gave his first sermon today and it was wonderful and I was able to get all the final supplies that my son needed for school!  Gonna be a good week--except for the fact that I took so many pictures this weekend that my camera battery is dead so now I can't get a picture of my sample for this week--it will be charged by morning and I will add my sample as soon as I can.  But have no fear--that don't keep us from starting this week's challenge--hope you find time to play along.  Remember you have a full week to play along.  Here is this week's sketch.....

My friend for Try Stamping on Tuesday!

It is my week again for the Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge!   I have had this new Lovely Lace embossing folder for a bit and have never used it so I thought I would use it for the focal point of this card.  I embossed the Cajun Craze background CS with the folder then embossed another scrap of the same color and cut out the flower.  Finally I used a sponge and added some Cajun Craze ink over the flower to make it pop a bit. 

Here is the sketch....

Here are the supplies used on this card.

Stamps: And Many More
Paper: Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Color Me Autumn DP, Whisper White
Ink: Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze
Other: Lovely Lace Embossing folder, white candy dots, rhinestones

Don't forget about my newest tutorial...

I am excited about this new tutorial--six cards with step by step directions, color photos, cut dimensions and more.  Not to mention that all of the cards are easily reproduced and mail with one stamp!  Love that.


As always you only pay
$2.50! 

All six cards use the same colors and only the one stamp set!
Kinda Eclectic is a great set and I have other samples on my blog that you can view too.

This would be a great class for my demonstrator friends.

Kinda Eclectic Card Set Tutorial!

Finally a new tutorial.  Sorry for the lack of them during the summer but I chose to enjoy the time my son had off from school with him! It was wonderful. Now it is back to reality as he goes back to school on Thursday--so sad.

But I am excited about this new tutorial--six cards with step by step directions, color photos, cut dimensions and more.  Not to mention that all of the cards are easily reproduced and mail with one stamp!  Love that.

Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 330 (TSSC330)

Happy Labor Day to you and yours.  I am so sad that it is September already, that means there are only two more days of my son's summer vacation.  I hate this time of year--I always feel so lost when he is gone all day long everyday.  I have no stinkin idea what I am going to do when he moves out.   Such a sad thought--Let's get to the sketch--that is more fun!  Here is this week's sketch for you to try...

And my sample.. I was determined to use this set for one more card (psst. The new tutorial can be found HERE.) before the new tutorial comes out. So here it is....

I am not really sure about it--I kind of forced the colors and papers but in the end I don't hate it, lol.  The designer paper is from the new Color Me Autumn Designer Series.  The colors are Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Whisper White--oh and a touch of Blackberry Bliss on the butterfly.  And the stamps set is of course  the Kinda Eclectic.

Now for the rest of the design team and their fabulous samples.  I so appreciate all of them for their talent and for being a part of my design team!  They are the best.
