Teapot Tuesday and More

Hi there!  Hope you've had a good day!  This is my second post today, so if you are looking for my Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team post, please click here.  I'm back to share a special card I made for this week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.  You can read this week's story here. Two weeks ago, the destination for our teapot cards was Nate and Will Renz, the twin sons of Katie Renz, who sadly lost her courageous battle with gastric cancer on November 7.  The twins turned 6 on November 19 and we wanted to shower the boys with birthday wishes at what was otherwise a very sad time for their family.  Well, this week, our destination is Katie's oldest son, Hunter.  Hunter is turning 12 on Thursday and we wanted to keep the birthday wishes flowing for him, too.  You can read all about Hunter here.  Hunter loves books and reading and magic.  He especially loves Harry Potter!

Here is the card I made for Hunter:


I used the sketch from The Paper Player's Challenge #74 for my layout.  Here is the sketch:


I started with a card base of GKD Cranberry Tart and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Oxford 6x6 pad.  I used this cute image from Bugaboo Stamps called Har Repotter - The Chosen One.  I printed him on Cryogen White and colored him with Copic markers.  I added some Polar White Flower Soft to look like feathers on the owl and Glossy Accents on Harry's glasses.  The sentiment was a freebie from Paulette at Create With TLC.  The numbers were from a Basic Grey alpha sticker set. The card is personalized for Hunter with more alpha stickers on the inside.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by again!  I hope you have a great night!

Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop

Good morning!  Hope your Tuesday is off to a great start!  I get to start my day with a fun blog hop brought to you by the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team!  Each month, a group of former DT members gets together and create projects with our favorite Heartfelt Creations products.  This is my first time participating in the hop since my DT term just ended a couple of weeks ago. I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's gorgeous projects! If you arrived here from Marsha's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to start back at the beginning at Dina's blog and hop from there so you don't miss a thing.

Here is the my card for the hop:


I am well on my way to finishing my Christmas cards, so I stayed with that theme for my card.  I used one of my favorite Heartfelt Creations images from HCPC 3357 Snowy Winter Scene.  I kept my design fairly simple and let the beautiful image be the main focal point.  I started with an A6 card base of GKD Heavy Weight White and layered with patterned paper from the Bo Bunny Father Christmas 6x6 pad.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White and colored the image with Copic markers.  I added some Polar White Flower Soft for the snow and a bit of Red Stickles on the gifts in the mailbox.  I embossed another piece of Cryogen White with the Grace's Frame Cuttlebug folder and cut a window with Spellbinders Petite Ovals Nestabilities.  I popped this layer up over my scene then popped the whole thing up on the card base.  A few red rhinestones finished my simple design.  One more easy-to-mail card for my stash!

Thanks for stopping by!  Now you'll want to hop on over to Debbie's blog and check out her wonderful creation!  Be sure to leave a comment on every blog while you're hopping because one randomly chosen commenter will win a $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations!  You have until Friday, December 2 at midnight EST to leave your comments.  The winner will be announced Saturday at noon.

Color Me Creative Classroom Copic Challenge

Hi there!  Happy Cyber Monday!  Have you been shopping and taking advantage of all the great deals out there?  I've been so busy today I haven't even had a chance to look!  Maybe later... Right now I am popping in to share the card I created for the current Copic Challenge (#32) on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom site.  The challenge this time is mulit-colored hair or non-traditional hair colors.  My card is also for this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.



Here is my card for both challenges:


I started with a card base of GKD Black Onyx and layered with patterned papers from the Glitz Designs Plum Crazy collection.  My fun image is called Gothika from The Paper Shelter. I colored her with Copics, of course.  I went with purple for my non-traditional hair color. Although it's kind of hard to see, after coloring, I added some sparkly highlights to her hair, her lips and the hardware on her clothes and boots with Spica pens.  The sentiment is from an older SU set.  All of the panels were cut out with either Petite Ovals or Classic Circle Nestabilities.  I added a bit of black mesh for one of the sketch elements.  A few black rhinestones finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I really appreciate your visits!  Hope to see you tomorrow morning for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni Blog Hop.   I'm sure you will love what the group has in store for you!

Card Patterns Sketch #143

Hi there!  Hope your weekend if off to a great start!  DH and I did an early trip to the mall to get all the gift cards our nieces want and a few things for my Mom.  It was amazingly quiet after all the craziness yesterday!  We were so glad we held off until today!  It's a beautiful, balmy day and we got to sit outside for lunch!  How good is that at the end of November??

Anyway, now that I'm back, I'm popping in to share my DT card for this week's Card Patterns Sketch.  This time we are being sponsored by The Craft's Meow.  You'll definitely want to check out all the wonderful stamps and supplies in The Craft's Meow store!

Here is Sketch #143:


Here is my take on the sketch:


The DT was generously provided with some beautiful stamps from The Craft's Meow for our samples.  I used one of the ornaments and a sentiment from the Vintage Ornaments set. I started with a card base of GKD Lipstick Red and layered with patterned papers from the Melissa Frances Deck The Halls 6x6 pad.  I added some lace trim, dyed seam binding and a few pearls for my embellishments.  I stamped the ornament onto GKD Ivory with Memento Bamboo Leaves and stamped the sentiment inside with Memento Rhubarb Stalk.  I popped up the ornament on a small doily made with the Cheery Lynn Polynesian Sails Oval die.  A bit of Baker's Twine on the ornament finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Card Patterns blog and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT, Lynn Miller (TCM DT) and our wonderful Guest Designer, Fran.   We hope you'll be inspired to play along with us this week!  We always love to see your creations!

Copic/Promarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  I hope that those who celebrated had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I am still stuffed from yesterday!  I don't do Black Friday shopping, but I have a bunch of other stuff to do today, so before I head off, I'm popping in to share my DT card for this week's Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site.  This week's theme is "anything goes" - always a favorite! My card is also for a couple of other challenges I like to do - Sketch Saturday #182 and Simon Says Stamp Challenge (Tag, You're It - use a tag).

Here is the Sketch Saturday Sketch:



Here is my card for the challenges:


I started with a card base of SU Handsome Hunter and layered with GKD Cranberry Tart and a stitched patchwork of papers from the Bo Bunny Father Christmas 6x6 pad.  My wonderful Santa is Ragged Santa from Mo's Digital Pencil.  He can be found in Mo's store here.  I printed him on Cryogen White and colored with Copics.  I added a bit of Ice Glitter to the "fur" on his coat.  He is cut out and matted with Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities.  My sentiment is from Create With TLC.  The tag was created with Spellbinders Tag Shapes 3.  A couple of holly stickers and a few gold adhesive pearls finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/Promarker Challenge and check out the fabulous projects from my amazingly talented teammates and our wonderful November Guest Designer, Lorraine!  We hope you'll join in on the fun this week!

Mo's DP2 Challenge #110 and More

Good morning!  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates the holiday!  I am going to be very busy cooking later, so I'm popping in quickly to share the card I made for this week's Mo's DP2 Challenge.  It is Thursday, after all, and I couldn't miss my favorite challenge - lol!  This week the theme is "elves, fairies, Santa or snowmen".  My card is also for two other challenges I like to do when I can - the Wild Orchid Week 37 Challenge (a child's Christmas) and Digital Tuesday #138 (sparkle and shine).  They both worked perfectly with the Mo's challenge theme this time.

Here is my card for the challenges:


I picked this sweet fairy called Christmas Fairy Holly for the Mo's Challenge.  She can be found in Mo's store here.  I thought she'd be perfect for a Christmas card for one of my nieces.   I started with a card base of GKD Fresh Asparagus and layered with patterned paper from the Webster's Pages Home For The Holidays/Winter's Wings Petite Papers pack.  I printed the image on Cryogen White and colored her with Copic markers.  I added lots of sparkle and shine to the image with Stickles, glitter and Glossy Accents.  She is cut out with Spellbinders Classic Circles and matted with Spellbinders Lacey Circles. I added some beautiful Wild Orchid flowers (Champagne Pink Roses, Champagne Pink Gardenias and Deep Ivory Cherry Blossoms that I airbrushed with Copics).  A double-loop silk bow and a Webster's Pages Sparkler finished my card. 

Many thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  See you soon!

Joan's Gardens Card Challenge

Hello!  I know it's late, but it's been a busy day and I didn't have much time to craft or spend on the computer today.  I did want to pop in, though, and share the card I made for this week's Card Challenge on Joan's Gardens blog.  The requirements this week were to make a card or tag with an animal, a winter scene, some kind of embossing and use a die. 

Here is my card for the challenge:


I started with a card base of GKD Heavy Base Weight White and embossed the card front with one of the Sizzix Birds and Wreath embossing folders.  I stamped the winter scene from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3357 Snowy Window Scene with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers.  My animal is the little rabbit in front.  I added Glossy Accents to the holly berries and Stickles to the ribbons on the packages in the mailbox.  For the snow, I used a combination of New Fallen Snow Glitter (La Jolla Stamp Co.) and Polar White Flower Soft.  I added a diecut flourish made with my new Cheery Lynn Tropical Flourish die.  A couple of Prima poinsettias with gold gems in the centers finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm always thrilled when you visit.  See you soon!

Color Me Creative Classroom Copic Challenge

Good afternoon!  Can't believe this is the first chance I've had today to jump on the computer!  We just got back and I'm popping in to post the card I made for the current Copic Challenge #31 on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom site.  The theme this time is "colors of the sea". 

Here is one of the inspiration photos for the challenge:


Here is my card for the challenge:


I started with a card base of TPC Studios Ocean Blue Shimmer CS and layered with TPC Turquoise Shimmer and a patterned paper called Renoir's Seascape from Paper House Productions.    My mermaid image is called Sounds of The Ocean.  It is available free from Sureya's deviantART gallery here.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics.  I think I bit off a little more than my Copic skills can handle with this one!  I am hair-challenged anyway and that is a lot of hair to color!    I highlighted her eyes and lids with Spica pens. The image panel and mats were cut with Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Petite Oval Nestabilities.  I added a flourish cut from TPC Turquoise Shimmer using the Cheery Lynn Tropical Flourish die.  I airbrushed a white Wild Orchid flower with Copics and added a few branches punched from TPC Studios Grass Green Shimmer CS.  A few Lily Pad Dewdrops finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy what's left of the weekend and hope to see you again soon!

Card Patterns #142

Hello!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  If you are looking for my card for the CSS Alumni Blog Hop, please scroll down one post.  I'm popping in quick to share my DT card for this week's Card Patterns Sketch.  This week, we are being sponsored again by Catherine Pooler, Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator.



Here is my take on the sketch:


Catherine generously provided the DT with some beautiful Stampin' Up products to use for our cards.  I started with a card base of Garden Green and layered with Early Expresso and papers from the Woodland Walk Designer Series Papers pack.  I stamped the bird from SU Friends 24-7 onto Very Vanilla with Memento Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black and colored it lightly with Copic markers.  It was cut out and popped up on foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment, also from Friends 24-7, with Early Expresso onto Very Vanilla and cut it out and matted it with Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Circle Nestabilities.  I punched the Vanilla border with the SU Scallop Trim Border Punch and added some Early Expresso ribbon.  A few vanilla pearls finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Card Patterns blog and check out the gorgeous creations from my teammates and our wonderful Guest Designer, Krystyna!  We hope you'll be inspired to play along with us!

CSS Alumni Blog Hop - Inspiration Challenge

Hi there!  It's time for another Center Stage Alumni Blog Hop!  I haven't been able to participate in the last couple of hops so I'm thrilled to be here!  This time it's an Inspiration Challenge.  If you came here from Betty's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you'll definitely want to go back to the StampTV forum and start from the beginning so you don't miss anything. 

Here is the inspiration photo Carolina gave us:


Here's what I came up with:


I was obviously inspired by the colors and all the little round boxes in the photo.  I don't usually work so literally from the inspiration piece, but I did with this one, for some reason.  I also issued myself an extra challenge to try and use some of my older Gina K. Designs sets instead of always reaching for the newer ones.  I started with a card base of Pure Luxury Ocean Mist and layered with patterned paper from the Basic Grey Mistletoe & Pears 12x12 pad.   Using Spellbinders Scallop Circle Nesties, I cut out a scalloped circle from Ocean Mist, Green Apple, Grass Green, Lipstick Red, Cranberry Tart and Innocent Pink cardstock.  I layered each with a small circle cut from different patterns in the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad with Spellbinders Classic Circle Dies.  I stamped sentiments from The Magic of Christmas, Festive Frame and First Christmas onto three of the circles with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  On the remaining three circles, I stamped different snowflakes from The Magic of Christmas set.  I added "pearls" around all the scalloped frames with a Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  I added a few iridescent gems to the centers of the snowflakes.  A few tiny bows on the remaining circles finished my card. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Next, hop on over to Carolina's blog where she has a fantastic creation to share with you.  Be sure to leave a comment on every blog as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (November 22), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and the lucky commenter will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

Enjoy the rest of the hop and have a great weekend!

Copic/Promarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Yay, it's Friday!  I sure am looking forward to the weekend!  We've got a lot to do this weekend, but it's supposed to be nice weather so I hope we get to enjoy a little time outdoors.  Anyway, first things first - it's time for another Copic/Promarker Challenge at The Outlawz!  This week's theme was "shopping".  This was a fun one!

Here is my DT card for the challenge:

I kept my design pretty simple.  I started with a card base of GKD Lipstick Red and embossed the card front with the Cuttlebug Checkerboard embossing folder.  I added a bit of patterned paper from the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad matted with SU Lucky Limeade.  My fun shopping image is Dani With Gifts from Mo's Digital Pencil.  You can find her in Mo's old store here.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics.  I added Snow Glitter to the fur trim on her coat and a bunch of different Stickles here and there for some sparkle.  The snow around her feet is Polar White Flower Soft.   The image was cut out and matted with Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Petite Oval Nestabilities.  I added some "pearls" around the scalloped frame and to the buttons on her coat with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  A double loop bow and Webster's Pages Sparkler finished my card. 
Thanks for dropping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/Promarker Challenge and check out the fabulous cards from my amazingly talented teammies and our wonderful Guest Designer for November, Lorraine!  We hope you'll play along with us!  We always love seeing your creations!

Mo's DP2 Challenge #109 - Winter

Good morning!  It's Thursday and you know what that means!  It's time for another Mo's DP2 Challenge!  This week's theme is "winter".  Perfect for the upcoming season and holidays!  I am also submitting my card to a couple of other challenges I like to do because the themes were very similar.  My card is also for Digital Tuesday Challenge #137 (Christmas theme and must have something digital) and Craft Your Passion #84 (Let It Snow - include snow in some form).

Here is my card:


I started with a card base of GKD Lipstick Red and layered with patterned paper from the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad.  I merged two of Mo's wonderful winter images - Door With Wreath and Snowman.  They can be found in Mo's old store here.  I printed the merged image on Cryogen White and colored with Copics.  I added some snow glitter to the pom pom on the snowman's hat and some Polar White Flower Soft for the snow on the ground and around the door.  A few pink gems on the Christmas wreath and a satin bow with a Webster's Pages Sparkler finished my simple card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and see you soon!

Many Thanks and A Few Challenges

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday!  It's been another busy day for me, but I thought I'd pop in quick to share a card I made for a few challenges I like to do.  Lucky for me, they all had the same theme this week!  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's no surprise that a lot of challenges are having a Thanks/Thanksgiving theme.  My card is for the Our Creative Corner Challenge (Pumpkin or Pumpkin Pie), the Corrosive Challenge #137 (Give Thanks), the Through The Craftroom Door Challenge #14 (Giving Thanks - had to use the word thanks) and finally, the Simons Says Stamp Challenge (Thanksgiving/Thanks).

Here is my card for the challenges:


I started with a square card base of SU Pumpkin Pie and layered with patterned papers from the Bo Bunny Forever Fall 6x6 pad.  I stamped the cornucopia from Impression Obsession with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White and colored it with Copics.   The sentiment is from an old retired SU set, but I'm not sure of the name of it.  I added a brown pearl flourish and a triple-loop wrinkled ribbon bow.  Some punched leaves and a small orange rose finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you again soon!

Card for A Few Challenges

Hi there!  Hope you've had a great day!  Mine was super busy with appointments and other stuff so I'm just now getting to post the card I made for three challenges I like to do when I can find the time.  My card is for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge (Photo Inspiration), Sketch Saturday Challenge #181 and Basic Grey Challenge #57 (Mix 'n' Match).

Here is the photo inspiration for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge:


Here is the sketch for Sketch Saturday #181:


And here is my card for the three challenges:


I was inspired by the rich red, green and blue colors in the inspiration photo.  I started with a square card base of GKD Lipstick Red and layered with a mix of patterned papers from the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, Jovial and Mistletoe & Pears collections.  The sentiment was created with alpha stickers from the Basic Grey Fruitcake collection.  I stamped Tilda Hanging Ornaments with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White and colored with Copic markers.  I added some Stickles to the ornaments for a little sparkle.  The image was cut out and matted with Spellbinders Classic and Scallop Petite Oval Nestabilities.  A few poinsettia stickers finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great evening and see you soon!

Card For a Couple of Challenges

Hello!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  It was pretty busy around here, but I still managed a little crafting time.  I am popping in to share the card I made for two challenges - the TSG#129 Challenge, which was to create a holiday project and the November Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) on Jen Del Muro's blog. 

Here is Jen's November sketch:


Here is my holiday project using the sketch:


I started with a card base of GKD Cranberry Tart and layered with patterned papers from the K & Co. Glad Tidings pad.  I stamped the images from the There She Goes Welcome Home set with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White and colored them with Copics.  I cut out the wreath and added it to the door.  I added Glossy Accents to the windows for some shine.  The sentiment was cut out with a Spellbinders Classic Circles die and mounted on a Spellbinders Parisian Accents diecut.  A bit of ribbon and a couple of gold pearls finished my card.

Card Patterns #141

Hi there!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  DH and I have decided to spend the day out, so before we go, I'm popping in to share my DT card for this week's Card Patterns Sketch.  Our sponsor this week is My Memories.   You'll definitely want to check out their My Memories Suite software for digital scrapbooking and their digital scrapbook kits.  The DT was generously provided with the software to play around with, so my "card" this week was actually created digitally using the My Memories Suite software.



And here is my project for the sketch:


I used background papers and elements from the Magic Moments kit available from My Memories.  I arranged all of the elements using the My Memories Suite software.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Card Patterns Sketch blog and check out the fabulous projects the rest of the DT created.  We've also included a little review of the My Memories Suite software, if you are interested. Our wonderful Guest Designer, Lenet, created a gorgeous card with this week's sketch.  You won't want to miss any of it!  We hope you'll be inspired to join us this week!

The Color Throwdown #167 and Sketch Saturday

Hi there!  I'm back really quick to share the card I made for two challenges: Sketch Saturday #180 and Color Throwdown #167.  I had my card almost all done earlier in the week, but set it aside and forgot to come back and finish it.  Thankfully, I got it done before the deadlines this time - lol!

Here is the Sketch Saturday sketch:


And here is the Color Throwdown swatch:


Here is my card for both challenges:

I started with a card base of SU Pool Party and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Mistletoe & Pears and Eskimo Kisses collections.  I merged these two darling Mo Manning images called Kai in the Snow and Snowman.  They can be found in Mo's store here.  I just love the expression of joy on Kai's face in this one!  I printed the merged image and colored it with Copics.  I added some Snow Glitter to the pom poms on both hats and some Polar White Flower Soft for the falling snow and snow on the ground.  I wove some pink gingham ribbon through the fancy border cut with a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die and added a triple-loop bow.  The corner element is also from Parisian Accents.  A few adhesive pearls on the diecuts finished my card.

Thanks for coming by again!  I really appreciate it!  Enjoy the rest of your day and the weekend!

Copic/Promarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  TGIF!  I hope you've got fun things planned for the weekend!  It's supposed to be quite chilly here, but still nice.  I love the crisp fall days!  Anyway, I'm popping in bright and early to share my DT card for this week's Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site.  This week's theme is "Goth" - however you'd like to interpret that. 

Here is my Goth card:


I chose this cute image called Gothika from The Paper Shelter.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored with Copics.  I sponged the sky with Tim Holtz Stormy Sky Distress ink.  The image was cut out and matted with Spellbinders Labels Two dies.  The background panels were cut out with Spellbinders Curved Rectangles.  The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Black Tie collection. My only embellishments were a bit of metallic mesh from Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue Trim Card and a few silver rhinestones in the corners.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz and check out the fabulous projects from my amazingly talented teammies and our wonderful November Guest Designer, Lorraine!  We'd love it if you played along with us!  We always love seeing your creations and you have the chance to win some awesome prizes when you enter our challenges!

The Christmas Sweets Challenge - Flourishes

As promised, I'm back with my card for today's Noon Time Challenge on Flourishes blog.  I promise this is it for me for today!  The "Christmas Sweets Challenge" was a color challenge - to use red, white and soft green for our project. 
Here is the inspiration photo:


Here is my card for the challenge:


I started with a card base of GKD Heavy Base Weight White and added a couple of patterned papers from the Melissa Frances Deck The Halls 6x6 pad.  I stamped the image from the Flourishes Meet Me Under The Mistletoe set with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I cut out the image with a Spellbinders Lacey Circle Die.  I added a few silver pearls to the image frame and card.  The sentiment from Flourishes A Gift For You was also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.  A double-loop satin bow and a Webster's Pages Sparkler finished my card. 

That's it for me for the day!  I'll be back tomorrow with my DT card for the Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site!  Hope you'll stop by!
