Doily Thanks -- Mod Squad Challenge Blog

Posted on November 10, 2014 at 5:01pm 1 Comment

Decided to jump back into stamping and play along in a challenge with the Mod Squad Challenge Blog's challenge hosted by Donna to include a doily.  I didn't go to Grandma's Attic but rather to my stash and found a paper doily and decided to begin making Thanksgiving cards.  My card includes Theresa Momber's Heartfelt stamp set for Gina K Designs.  Also used Gina K's Pure Luxury pure ivory and honey mustard cardstock as well as Gina's Autumn Landscape designer paper pack.  A few misc.…


RedWhiteBlue Stars -- Mod Squad Challenge Blog

Finished off a card for the Mod Squad Challenge Blog's Patriotic Thank You Challenge made with very little stamping.  Punched out some circles and stars used Gina K's rocket red, in the navy and pure white cardstock, cuttlebug's star embossing folder and a sentiment from Quite a Catch.  Simple but kind of cute, too.  …


Father's Day Triple Time Stamping -- ModSquad Challenge Blog

Posted on May 19, 2014 at 11:17am 3 Comments

Decided to play along with the Triple Time Stamping challenge hosted by Judy Woodland over at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog challenge.  I really do enjoy this technique and have used it a few times.  This time, however, I decided to do a scene and I may have gone a little overboard on my birds....a little Alfred Hitchcock.  This one's going to my son in law for being a great dad to my two wonderful little grandchildren.  …

:Playing along with the Spring Color Challenge over at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog.  I used Gina K's Pure Luxury cardstock in Turquoise Sea, Wild Lilac and Pure White as well as the designer paper from the Shabby Spring paper pack. I probably should whisper and not even post that my stamp is from Inky Antics.  Yikes I feel guilty posting it here.  

Have a great day.…

Thanks Gayle for commenting on my Easter Treats card. I had fun with it and then the next day realized that I could make another as a slider so I did that yesterday.  Now I even have another idea in my head but no time today to craft. Perhaps tomorrow.

So happy you like my flowers and dots. Not  to tough of a challenge this week.

I really appreciate your comments on my flowers and dots card Gayle. I was aiming for something similar to what Melanie did in her Black Magic tutorial and although it worked out, I did it with the new distress Oxides and didn't quite get the vibrancy of the colours that I was looking for. Those inks are super for blending though and it is much easier to get a smooth look without those occasionally ugly sponge circles.

Thanks for the lovely comment on my Spring Wishes card. It was a beautiful Spring day here in South Dakota too. I hope you had a great day as well.
