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

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!  Thanks very much for your sweet comment - I really appreciate it!  Yes, I really like this stamp set - I've been trying different color combos on the flowers, and still haven't got to the rest of the kit.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks so much for the lovely comment on my vellum daffodil card. I watched a Jennifer McGuire youtube video on doing something like this and thought that stamp would work well for the idea. It was fun to make.

Hi Gayle,  thanks a bunch for the lovely comments on 2 of my nautical themed cards!  I really do appreciate you taking the time to do so!  :)

Hi Gayle - thanks so much for your lovely comments on both my nautical cards this week. I had fun creating them and doing a few more masculine designs is good as I have a lot of birthdays coming up soon. It is nice to have something ready rather than the mad scramble it sometimes became.

Aloha, Gayle! So sweet of you to stop by and leave your kind comment on this flower card! Sending you the best of wishes and hugs! Enjoy this coming week ♥ :)
