Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #1: Fall Color Challenge

What a great challenge...I can't wait to try more. Here is my first Mo's Digital Pencil challenge - Bronte and Bella Out for Trick or Treating. My image was from Mo and colored with copics. I have diamond stickles on her boots and crystal effects on her treat bucket and her broomstick. The cardstock is mostly bazzill basics to match the colors of the challenge. The sentiment and the punches for the sentiment are SU! The flowers, ribbon, button, brads, and twine are from my stash.

House Mouse Challenge #52: Year in Review

Challenge #8: Halloween. I looked back at the year and chose a week that I didn't participate - so with a new House Mouse stamp - Count Mouse. I chose Halloween. Lots and Lots of new stamping and papercrafting items in my crafting room including a Cricut "Create" that I received for my birthday - I LOVE IT!! I made this card twice this week which is why it is sooo late getting on the blog...I'm posting the 2nd version but still feel something is missing with my card. I used Neena Solar White stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black,colored with Copics, die cut with Nestabilities, and stippled with Rich Cocoa. The letters are the Don Jaun cartridge and the pumpkins are the Speaking of Fall cartridge used on my new cricut. The cardstock is a mix of Bazzill Basics and Stampin' Up! The Designer paper is Stampin' Up.

Mo's Digital Pencil "Freebie" on Paper Craft Planet

How lucky....I joined the "Mo's Digital Pencil" group on Paper Craft Planet....and Mo had posted a freebie. I thought I would give it a try. Not my typical type of image but did my best to give it a warm home feel. The girl made me think of a grey fall day and she is spending the afternoon reading , looking at photo albums, or maybe last years yearbook reading comments from all of her friends. I also was lacking in the copic color department, but my new order is going in this week and I will be in much better shape. Enjoy!
The imaged was printed and heatset on Neenah cardstock and colored with Copics. The sentiment, solid cardstock, and ink are SU! Ribbon and chipboard are Michaels.

Basic Grey Challenge Week 3: Inspiration

I think I'm mostly inspired by getting back into stamping and a using a bunch of new supplies and stamps today. My first Basic Grey challenge - looks fun - I love the paper. To start, I have used a Basic Grey paper from the "Two Scoops Collection" called Ice Cream Parlor and also Basica Grey button which I'm pretty sure is from the Marrakech collection. My Cardstock is SU! and Bazzill Basics. Also from SU! are the brads and flower. My image is House Mouse "Just Dandy" stamped on Neenah Solar White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I'm working on blending and blending and blending. I have a new copics ordered prepared and it will go in this week. I can't WAIT!!! I think I might give this to my Dad for his Brithday on October 1st.

House Mouse Challenge #51: Song Titles / Lyrics

When I checked in on Challenge #51, now that I'm back after my spring/summer layoff, I dug through my box of House Mouse stamps and always feel like I never have enough stamps or the right image for the challenge so PRIOR to doing anything - I placed an order with RK Stamps . They are fanstastic - prices are good, shipping is always fair, and shipping is quick. My card is a repeat image if you look down the blog but I love this one - Autumn Sprinkles. For the image I used Neenah Card Stock, Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copic Markers. Solid paper is a mix of Stampin' Up and Bazzill Basics. The Designer paper is SU! and a new paper that I just purchased at New England Scrapbook Company. The clips are SU! HodgePodge and the ribbon is Kate's Paperie.

House Mouse Challenge #50: Gift Card Holder

After a full spring and summer off - I am back to stamping, cardmaking, and scrapbooking. The break started with a trip to Hawaii, on to house renovations after a bad renter, and then some hope to pullout the scraps of summer after record rains. I have missed it a ton. Recently shopping and bought some new paper and all kinds of items. A trip to New England Scrapbook company always helps.

For my entry, I used "Nose to Nose in Flowers". I'm going to post for now and then will come back and edit the details - brunch and golf for the holiday weekend. I have a giftcard pocket attached to my HM Scalloped Cirle and mounted on the dark purple scalloped circle.

Now for the details and hopefully a better picture....I have a great camera but really need lessons and advice on posting a good picture of my work. My image was Nose to Nose in Flowers. Stamped on Neenah Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in Copics. From SU! I used the tag punches, rub-ons, Button Latte, twine, eyelet, and Jumbo Eyelets. The card stock is SU! and Bazzill Basics. Purple ribbon is from Michaels. The scalloped circles are Nestabilities and SU! Bigz Scalloped Circle.
