Theme Thursday Challenge - Busy!

This was a bit of a stretch for me. But once I got going it was fun and I just wanted to make sure it stayed cohesive and didn't get sloppy and fall apart. Anyway, here it is featuring a stamp from Stampington & Co called Santa Matilde.  The butterfly is a beautiful stamp from Savvy Stamps.

Think Monday, Think ATC - Morning Ritual Challenge

For this weeks challenge about morning rituals, I chose my habitual cup of tea and my cherished quiet time to think about anything. Everything is possible and new before the dawn. The woman is a new stamp from Lost Coast Designs, called the Coat Lady. I stamped her on photo paper and colored her lightly.

Tag Tuesday Challenge - A Doll

I had a lot of fun with this tag.   I am calling her the Bird Lady.  The woman stamp is from Paperbag Studios and all the multi bird stamp is from Artistic Outpost. The single bird, eggs and bird on her head are from a stamp and collage sheet from Oxford Impressions. I used branches for her arms, feathers for her skirt and some moss for her hair. What fun!

Happy Sunday!

I got a bunch of new stamps over the holidays, so I have started making cards with them.
The first one I am calling Ghost. It seemed to me that she was watching over her family house  - in a wistful way. I used a combination of stamp companies in this one. Coat lady and tree branches Background(very cool) is Lost Coast Designs.  The house is River City Rubber Works. The bird is from Oxford Impressions and "Home" is from Artistic Outpost.
The second card gives you a better idea of the tree branches background from Lost Coast Designs.The 2 men are from LC Designs also. Dream is from Process of Illumination and the birds are from Artistic Outpost.

Theme Thursday Challenge - Hearts!

I just made this card last night, so that was great timing. Both the Flaming Heart and Chicken Wire stamp are from Lost Coast Designs.  I stamped the heart on paper that had been sprayed with different glimmer mists. I cut it out and added some acrylic paint and beads to the heart. Topped off with a gold painted bottle cap, stamp and rhinestones. I wanted to give it a Mexican/folk art flare. Mi Corazon is "my heart" in spanish. This is definitely one of those cards that are better in person.

Christmas Card Contest

Okay....I admit that I was disappointed that I was not one of the 5 winners in the Oxford Impressions Christmas Card Contest.  And then I logged onto Suzanne's Blog  today, and there was my card. I was so psyched! She was showcasing a few of the ones she liked using the non-traditional stamps for the card, a great challenge. I guess runner-up isn't so bad!
Here is the card:

Tuesday Tag Challenge

Here is my entry for the Kard Krazy Tuesday Tag Challenge - Polka Dots and Stripes. The background paper is white with light pink polka dots and subtle black lines. The dog stamp is on photo paper and is from Rubber Stamps of America, which I ordered from Stamp Diva.  The ball is a stamp from Artistic Outpost.  The dog stamp is a new one for me - I love it! It reminds me of my Jack Russell Terrier, Sophie Lou.

Old Photo Card

I have many old photos from my Dad's side of the family. They lived in NY near the beach.  These were taken around 1920's or so. I copy them on photo paper and sometimes color them a bit. These girls are on a boardwalk arms around each other, bending over. The background paper is some Ralph Lauren wallpaper. I used real shells and sea glass.

Route 66

This is a card i made from the Artistic Outpost stamp set called Route 66. It is a great stamp collection for collaging and i have made many different cards with it. The men especially love these cards.
