Something Sweet

Hello Everyone

Well here we are in February already.
This month over on the 
is "Something Sweet".

I wanted to make a Valentine Treat Bag
for someone special, just to say thank you.

I put little red and silver kisses inside.
As you can see, through the front of the card.
The stamp I am using today is from

I stamped it out and colored it in with the
Spectrum-Noir makers.
Then cut the image out and placed it on the treat bag with pop dots.
Stamped a few flowers right on the bag. Tied a red ribbon at the top to keep it closed.

Now I have a cute little gift that I hope will make my friend smile.
If you want to make this wonderful little treat bag.

Tilda Vintage Rose

Hello Everyone,

Today is Tilda day.
Meet Tilda with Vintage Roses.
I started out with a 6 1/2 by 11 inch
piece of card stock, folded in half.
I airbrushed the green for the grass and
the blue for the sky.
After stamping the Old Oak Tree and
Tulip Walk Way, I colored them in with my
I stamped out Tilda and the little snail on
Neenah solar white card stock,
using Tuxedo black memento ink.
Cut them out and put them on with
 mounting foam.
For the grass I used the Martha Stewart
grass punch.
Added some gitter.
Made some flowers to put in the corner.
Then last but not least, the tiny butterfly,
who looks like he's had to much pixie punch, lol.
Is heading for the flowers to take a nap!

For the inside, first I added green paper then a piece of pink butterfly paper.
Added some silver sticker strips.
And now this little card can be given to a special person and you can write what you like.

 I love the Magnolia line of stamps and products.
They are so fun to work with.
I also received the Magnolia magazine
 in the mail, and it is awesome!!

Rose Clock

Hello Everyone,

Yes it's Wednesday again, and here I am.
Today I want to show you one of the wonderful stamps
from Stamp It.
Crafter's Companion  is going to be carrying
this great line of stamps.
This is what we will be making today.

This is a brand new month and we have
all kinds of things happening over at the 

We have a Contest to see how many members
we can get by February 29th.
You and I both could win, just click on contest
and check it out.

Then you need to pop over to the 
Challenge Blog  where we give away a stamp 
each week.  You can also post the projects
you make with a Crafter's Companion stamp.
The prize this month is the Strawberry Kisses CD ROM and 3 Strawberry Kisses Stamp Sets.
This month's theme is
"Something Sweet"
And you can enter 3 times.

O.K. let's get to the stamp before it takes
 you until next Wednesday to read this.
:) LOL:)

This stamp is called "Rose Clock".
I stamped it out on silver card stock.
Cut out 2 arch shapes, one with the
stamp on it and one plain.
I punched 2 wholes in the cards
 and tied together with ribbon and added
the little flowers.
That way, you can put a sentiment on
the inside.

Now for the gift to go with the card.
When I stamped out the image on the card
I scanned it into the computer and enlarged it
to about 7 x 5 (inches). Cut that out ( same silver card stock)
with a little extra around the edges to embellish.
I colored in the flowers with my
Spectrum-Noir markers.
The clock hands I cut out of black
chipboard. Then added a little 
 Autumn Gold Rub-N-Buff
to give it an  aged look.
O.K. take a breath, go get a drink,
"of water" :) and we will finish up.

Around the left hand side of the card
 I punched out little heart shaped wholes.
I had a bunch of paper flowers on stems.
Threaded them through the wholes to
frame the stamp, added the bows and
that part is done.

For the last part, I wanted to make this into
a container to hold flowers.
I found a small tin that I purchased
after Christmas. I covered it with some
 pretty paper, ( because I didn't want
 ho ho ho to show through).
Then covered that with pink tissue paper.
I attached it to the card with
adhesive foam squares.

Now you can put a small vase of flowers in it.
Depending on the size of the tin, you can get
 a dozen or so flowers in this gift.
Add your little card and your done!

Here is the finished Project.

I had a blast making this.
Please come back next week and see
what else we can make.
If their are any products you would like
to know more about, please ask.

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a scrappy day.

Let It Snow!!

Hi Everyone,

I know it's  February, and here
in Ohio we have had a very mild winter.
I am very happy with that, but I know the
kiddos love the snow.
This little stamp is by S.W.A.L.K.

For my card today, I stamped her out on
white card stock. Colored her in with my
favorite markers, Spectrum-Noir.

I added some white flock to her hat and
 little drops of  Crystal-Lacquer to make
the snow flakes glossy.
I popped her on the easel card, punched
out some snow flakes, then layered them, to
get a 3-D effect. 

The easel card was made with the
