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.…


Spring Three Mod Squad Blog Challenge

Posted on April 14, 2014 at 1:51pm 0 Comments

This week's Mod Squad Blog Challenge was to use three bright spring colors and create your own background paper using stamps.  I decided to use the large flower from Melanie Muenchinger's A Year of Flowers 2 stamp set and do an emboss resist technique for my patterned paper .  The spring colors I chose were honey…

Hi Gayle, thank you so much for your very kind comment on my Gradient Background card. I think that would be a great technique for some fall cards. Have a great week.

The red velvet is actually prettier in real life but the crimped scene is my favorite, too.

Hi, Gayle! So happy you liked my watercolour card. I really appreciate your comments a lot!

Thanks Gayle - it made me feel really good reading your lovely comments on my daisy card. As well I'm really happy the santa hats arrived safely and hope you have fun using them. A neat trick would be to photo copy them onto some card stock so you have a template for future use. Things are better than they were. Keeping busy sorting out my supplies and trying to find a home for everything in my new space means not too much time to think which is a blessing at times.

Hi Gayle, thanks so very much for your lovely encouraging comment on my one layer card. I really appreciate it.
