Little Darlings Rubber Stamps - It's a celebration!

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a wonderful week and are able to slow down and enjoy the holidays. It's my turn to post my card over at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps Design Team Inspirations. I chose to work with this gorgeous image of Candy Canes from the Saturated Canary line of rubber stamps at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps!


Isn't she gorgeous??!! She's colored with Copic markers on a frame cut with the Silhouette Cameo. The papers are some of my favorite from Nitwit Collections and they're matted with Bazzill cardstock. The poinsettia was cut using a Spellbinders die and enhanced with some Stickles. The ribbons are from my stash and I added a bunch of pearls with the Viva Decor pearl pen.


So have you heard the news from Angie??!!! She has a goal of reaching 1000 members at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps Facebook page by the end of the day Dec 31st, 2012! If she attains that goal (we're currently over 800) then Angie is going to give away an ENTIRE set of stamps from the CHA Winter 2013 show to one random member of the group! OMG! Tell all your Facebook friends to please get over there! Who wouldn't love to start the new year out that way??!!!!!


That's it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me. May you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and may the new year bring many new joys to you and your loved ones. Thank your for another wonderful year!! Hugs! Sharon

Papertake Weekly - pick of the year and my first go with Spectrum Noir

UPDATE!!! My very awesome and wickedly talented friend Sheri Willshire helped me get my blog back to normal! Thanks girlfriend! You are AWESOME!!!
Hi everyone!!  First to my regular visitors, I'm sorry...I don't know what is going on with my blog right now. I can't get my side bar back to the side. It popped down there all by itself without me making any kind of alterations on my blog. And it's decided it likes it down at the bottom I suppose, cause I just can't convince it to come back to it's proper spot. I'll keep trying!  I refuse to let a stupid computer get the best of me!! lol!! Now on to what this post is supposed to be about.  :D    It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week it's another fun one!  You get to pick your favorite challenge of 2012!! Yep! Have fun! And we are sponsored by our very own amazingly talented Mary and Andrea from The Ribbon Girl! If you want the most gorgeous ribbon and embellies, then head straight there!!  For my card today, I have used the amazing image of Virginia  from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I LOVE her!! And I've used her with the Three, Two, One Challenge. So I've used three poinsettias, two designer papers, and one super cute image! :)


Now this is my very first image I colored with the set of Spectrum Noir pens from Hallmark Scrapbook! I've got a lot to learn in figuring out the color combinations, but the colors are truly gorgeous! They are a very affordable and they blend beautifully! Please be sure to pop over to Hallmark Scrapbook to check out all the gorgeous colors and sets that Jody has available. You will be seeing more creations from me using these markers, and hopefully I'll get better at using them.


The papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses matted with Bazzill cardstock. The poinsettias are from a Spellbinders die with some Stickles and pearl centers. That bow is made with May Arts silk ribbon and I added some pearls with the Viva Decor pearl pen. Please be sure and visit Papertake Weekly to see all the gorgeous creations by my teamies and or amazing Guest Designers! And then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us for a chance to win an amazing prize from The Ribbon Girl! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Magnolia-licious Blog Hop and a touch of sweet stuff!!

Hey everyone! It's time for the Magnolia-licious monthy Design Team Blog Hop, and this month we are VERY excited to have the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Design Team joining us!! So you should be able to fill yer boots with tons of Magnolia inspiration today!!!! If you've made your way here from the fabulously talened Cathy Lee, then you're in the right spot! If not, then you want to go back to the beginning at the Magnolia-licious Hightlites Blog so you don't miss out on anything. So here's a little info about what we're doing today. There are TWO ways you can win an amazing prize from Diana at Magnolia-licious. You can play along with the challenge (see all the details at Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog), or you can "count the candy canes" (all details are on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog). Here's what I've come up with for you today. I chose a tag with a sleeve from the Silhouette Store and cut it with the Cameo and decorated it from there. I turned the inside tag into a gift card holder by cutting two tags and cutting one of them in half and attaching it to the back of the main tag with Scor Tape. Voila! Gift card holder!!

On the sleeve, I used an older Tilda from Magnolia-licoius. I believe she's called Santa's Little Helper, but I can't find her in the store. She's sitting on #509 Snowy Roof from A Christmas Story Collection which is in stock and ready to be sent to you! They are both colored with Copic markers.

.
Now you can see a portion of the gift card holder on the inside of the sleeve.


Here's the pair together. On the inside I used #356 Tilda with long hair. She is also colored with Copic markers. The sentiment was simply printed on the computer.


 So now it's time to move on to the next stop in the hop, the gorgeous and awesomely talented Eulanda!  But before you go, I've got two Magnolia stamps I'd like to give to someone. So leave a comment by Sunday night, 11:59pm Pacific time, and I'll pull a winner!! Thanks so much for hopping with us today and please be sure to stop over at Magnolia-licious for all your Magnolia needs!! Hugs!

Papertake Weekly - It's sketch week!

Good morning and happy Tuesday!! Hope you're having a wonderful start to your day and the sun is shining!  I'm still in denial that it's Christmas time already! Where in the world does the time go? With that said, it's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and since it's the last Tuesday of the month, that means it's time for one of Dawny's fabulous sketches. I've followed this one to the letter and just simply flipped it sideways. We are being sponsored this week by the awesome Simon Says Stamp!!


So have you seen the new Nativity Collection from Magnolia?? It's available right now at Magnolia-licious and Diana is showing all of the images in full colored glory!! If you haven't checked them out, you simply must rush over and have a look!! For my card I used #3018 Holy Tilda with Lamb and I think she is so beautiful!!  You still have time to get these lovelies in your hands and do something with them before Christmas! Magnolia-licious offers an extensive selection of Magnolia images with fantastic service and prices! Plus you receive a 2% store credit with every purchase!! Tilda is colored with Copic markers and then cut out with oval Nestabilities. I kept this card extremely simple as I wanted her to be the main focus without a bunch of bits and baubles. The papers are Simple Stories matted with Bazzill cardstock.


Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all my teamies fabulous creations, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Feeling Festive?

Hi everyone! Are you having a wonderful weekend? I sure hope so! I'm as stuffed as any turkey in the land. LOL! It's time for a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog and this week our hostess with the mostest is the wickedly talented Elaine Hughes! Elaine has used the beautiful image Celastina, which will be up for grabs if you make a project using a Kraftin' Kimmie image and link it up to the challenge blog! Elaine is asking us to feel festive this week and make a card or project for Christmas. I went with a tag using one of my favorites from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, SANTA'S HEAVY LOAD.


This is a cute little Christmas tag I made up using this adorable image colored with Copic markers. The tree and tag were cut using the Cameo and images from the Silhouette store. Please be sure and pop over to Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog to see all my teamies fabulous creations, and then we'd really love it if you'd join us!

Oh dear...running late again!!!

This time of year, doesn't everything just kind of become insane? LOL! Anyway, here I am, several hours (and hours and hours) late with my Papertake Weekly post. SHEESH! Ok, the challenge this week is ribbons and pearls and we are sponsored by the fabulous Mary and Andrea from The Ribbon Girl!! Pretty self explanatory, just use some ribbon and pearls on your project and link it up to Papertake Weekly! Here's what I've come up with today


I used two of the new amazing images from the Nativity Collection which is available right now over at Magnolia-licious!! Have you checked lately? Diana is havingthe DT color up the images and displaying those in the shop instead of the black and white images. It really helps you to see the stamps and was an ingenious idea!! I used #126 Holy Edwin and #3035 Tilda with a Little Dove.  They're stamped onto Cryogen White paper and colored with Copics. The ribbon is May Arts and the pearls are from a Viva Decor pearl pen.


So that's it for me today! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly and we'd love it if you'd join us for a chance to win an awesome prize! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Hey everyone! Hope you're having an awesome start to your week! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly and this week Dawny's challenge is Flower Power! So use blooms on your project, either in the image or as an embellishment. We are sponsored this week by The Stamp Fairy.


I used one of my favorite stamps from the new collection "A Christmas Story"!  Isn't she fabulous??!! She's #351 Joyful Tilda, and she's available right now at Magnolia-licious!! Diana offers an extensive selection of Magnolia images. Not only does she have awesome service and prices, but to make it even better, Diana gives you a 2% store credit with every purchase!! You will also find an awesome array of your favorite dies as well such as Memory Box, Marianne, Magnolia, and lots more too!


Joyful Tilda is stamped onto Cryogen White paper and colored with Copic markers. The papers are Simple Stories matted with Bazzill cardstock. The blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafts and that lucious ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl. LOOOVE that ribbon!!!  The design is a Gift Card Holder with a chipboard insert. Just click HERE to go the video by scrappydesigns if you'd like to make one.   Please pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the awesomely gorgeous creations by my teamies, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and join us in the challenge!
