Did someone call a Doctor?

One of my best friends and I are huge Doctor Who fans. I found this pattern/template on Valita's gallery here at SCS. Boy was I excited!! Thank you Valita!! You can find the template on her blog:

Becky's birthday isn't until August. I can't wait to give it to her!

It's Made Out of What?!

My entry for the Stamps R Us Challenge #6. I love these little paper wallets! They are so much fun to make! The solid paper is Bazill in Buttercream and the embossing folder used is Cuttlebug's Tiny Mosaics. I inked the Buttercream with distress ink in Antique Linen and embossed with heat gun and clear powder. The inside paper is so me! I LOVE animal prints. Found this one at Michael's. The ribbon trim and brad are from Archiver's.

Stressed spelled backwards...

I have had this SU set "Hanging in There" for a REALLY long time and never had the opportunity to use it. My dad is a chemo patient and my mom wanted to take the receptionists at the bone marrow clinic some cookies/brownies for being so kind to them every week. I thought this stamp would be perfect for a card to go with the goodies.

Sorry, my camera is not that good. You can't really see the details, like the colored pencils I used or the glossy accents or stickles. Maybe I can make another card in the day time and take a better picture, ha ha ha!

All cardstock is from Archiver's, ribbon from Michael's. The nestabilities are Spellbinder's Labels Two, large circles cut with Cutterbee, small circles punched.

Spoil Yourself

I have had this Penny Black stamp for a while and finally got around to using it. Don't feel I did it justice though.

I stamped the image with Memento black ink and colored with pencils. I added Stardust pen and Glossy Accents to the bubbles. The border punch is Martha Stewart. I used the technique of snipping the paper about 1/16 inch between each daisy in order to place it around the circle. The blue paper is Bazill Bling and the pink is shimmer from TPC.

As always, TFL and I appreciate your comments!!

This is a photo I snapped of my Jack Russell, Bonnie, snoozing on the couch. The dp is from Crate Paper. The ribbon is from Archiver's as are the paw print buttons from the Hot Spot bin. Solid papers and flowers are Bazzil. I stamped a paw print on the tag and used ep and stardust pen. The bottom border is also Crate paper with matching gems added.

Mother's Day 2010

This is a total case of a card by Cheri Wenger. The background paper is a digital design by her and is a free download on her site. I used a different digital flower than she did. I am sorry, don't remember where I found it. It was a freebie also. Instead of the ribbon or paper she used, I embossed a strip of brown paper with the giraffe folder by Sissix and added more bling. I also used stardust pen on many of the open brown swirls and circles on the paper. I thought about adding more to it, but sometimes simple is best. My mom liked it and that is what counts!!

Coastal Breeze

This is another stamp from the Tattered Angels set Seaside Coastal Breeze. This is an A7 card, so as you can see, the stamped image took up the whole card. Kept it pretty simple. Stamped image with Sahara Sand and Tea Leaves Versa Magic Chalk Inks. Embossed with clear powder. Using the inkssentials blending tool, applied Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink directly to paper. Applied distress stickles in Shabby Shutters to palm fronds and heat set. A sentiment in Sahara Sand and a bit of green bling...done.

Marguerite Smith Cooper Smith

This is a picture I scanned of my grandmother. It was taken sometime in the 1920's. I just loved the green and browns together.

Tropical Leaves

I love this new Fiskars punch, Leaf it to Me! Cut out Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 2. Inked the inside cream cardstock with a script stamp. Inked edges of all papers with cat eye in chestnut. DP is from Safari paperpack by DCWV. Inked edges of leaves and pop-dotted. Finished off card with translucent amber domes.
