Theresa Momber: Life is Good (Part 2!)

I'm still excited as ever to be one of two guest designers this month for Theresa Momber.... fabulous artist and paper crafter for Gina K. Designs. Her stamp set,"Life is Good," makes such elegant cards that it's hard not to feel peaceful when looking at the results. Please visit Gerri's blog! She makes such stunning cards and has more to share with you, too! And don't forget to visit Theresa's blog, too. The cards she has made with these stamps look like paintings. Amazing! (And.... She is showing one of my cards! How fun is that?!?)


From Our House to Yours

I love this cabin image so much that I had to make a card spotlighting just it. Since I'm enjoying cranberry tart cardstock, I decided to see what this cabin would look like in a coordinating shade (Copic R59 - Cardinal). I sponged the sky with bashful blue and layered it on another piece of white cs. To finish it, I used a white gel pen for snow on the trees and bushes and added some white organza ribbon. The sentiment is from another one of Theresa's stamp sets, "Autumn Beauty".


Your Love Sustains Me

For this card, I wanted to use a wide mat like you see on some picture frames. For texture, I used the trees. The sky is sponged in bashful blue. I used 3 SU punches to layer the sentiment: oval, circle, and designer label punches.

Thank you so much for visiting! This has been so much fun for me!

Congrats on Your Big News!


Congrats on You Big News!

This is my sample for today's CAS challenge on SCS. It's an inspiration challenge. This time we are taking a trip into the world of Disney! Even though I chose to use Disney characters on my card, it isn't a requirement. Just let your imagination flow while site-seeing :)

I used this valence as my inspiration. My original plans were to use regal rose where you see the certainly celery scallop layer, but it didn't match. None of my pink cs matched! Plan B: Make it neutral since this card is meant for a wonderful lady who just found out she is expecting!

Stamps: Disney's Pooh & Piglet (source unknown), sentiment (Stampin' Up)
Paper: white, certainly celery, so saffron, DCWV mat stack
Ink: Palette burnt umber, certainly celery, Copic markers: YR31 light reddish yellow, R27 cadmium red, RV34 dark pink, RV11 pink
Accessories: taffeta ribbon, CM custom cutting system, SU scallop edge punch, white gel pen

It's a jungle out there!


I kept this card simple. It just didn't seem to need any embellishments, not even ribbon. This card was made for today's inspiration challenge on SCS. I was inspired by the pictures on the wall of this jungle themed nursery on Posh Tots. You can see it here.

I was going to emboss white dots onto the celery cs to resemble the pictures better, but I was too tired. Embossing isn't my favorite thing to do. I made a second card, but I won't be able to upload it until after I showcase it on my blog Monday night for Theresa Momber. (She asked me to be one of her guest designers this month! I'm very honored and excited!)

Stamps: main image, dots BG, and sentiment - DRS Designs
Paper: white, certainly celery
Ink: Plaette burnt umber, certainly celery, Copic markers
Tools & Technique: handmade cloud template, sponging

Are these Christmas scraps?


Wow! I can't remember the last time I've had time to do the Limited Supply Challenge on SCS. Once I realized I had everything I needed, this became exciting! Here's Dawn's challenge:

Your challenge today is to look through the scraps of the last day or two...and come up with a card using:

1. an image from a greeting card
2. a scrap of wrapping paper
3. a ribbon or bow or fixing from a gift

1. I cut the trees from a greeting card.
2. The green paper with the snowflakes is wrapping paper.
3. My wrapping wasn't on the outside package (gift bag), it was around the gift itself... this adorable fleece throw blanket. My DH gets me something with snowmen every year :) Anyway, I used the stretchy ribbon that held the blanket all rolled up. It also had a tag... the green striped square. The "To:" and "From:" are on the other side.

Other supplies: The sentiment is stamped in bashful blue ink with a SU image (Warmest Regards, I think). The blue snowflake dp is possibly from DCWV. Then I punched the snowflake from lavendar lace CS with a Martha Stewart punch and added a rhinestone sticker. (I had to cover up the hole on the tag!)

Merry Christmas!


I had to post one last Christmas card on Christmas Day... to wish you the merriest holiday ever! Jesus is the reason for the season, so if it isn't the merriest, turn to Him!

This was one of the 4 cards I made for this week's CAS challenge: a sketch inspired by ltecler! You can see her adorable card here.

All stamps from DRS Designs: simple decorated tree (H010), Merry Christmas arc (E102), Swirling Snowflakes (F168), Holly Giga Circle (L120)
Paper: regal rose, white
Ink: Palette burnt umber, regal rose, Copic markers, apricot appeal (for sponging)
Accessories: pretty in pink taffeta ribbon, white gel pen, CM custom cutting system, Marvy mega scallop circle punch

This card measures 4.25 square. I use 4.5 A Muse envelopes.

I want to wish you a Merry Christmas...


I think I got this card submitted just in the knick of time! This card was made for the sketch challenge on Stamp TV. I thought of what to make while shopping this evening and hearing the Christmas song, "Feliz Navidad". It made me think of this set with the multiple languages BG. It took me forever to edit because the camera was focused on the big bow and it blurred the BG.

Stamps: Vintage Borders (Gina K. Designs)
Paper & Ink: creamy caramel, real red chocolate chip
Accessories: satin ribbon, CM custom cutting system

Enjoying A Hot Cup of Tea


SCS Sketch challenge #260

I had a difficult time with this sketch, but I think I like the final outcome. This card makes me think of enjoying a hot cup of tea on a late spring morning while looking at the flowers starting to bloom. I love the arc of the sentiments in Unity's December kit of the month.

Stamps: tea bag and sentiment - Dec. '09 KOM Unity, flowers - Aug. '09 KOM Unity
Paper: white, pretty in pin, CM scraps dp
Ink: Palette burnt umber, Copic markers
Accessories: ribbon. CM custom cutting system, dimensionals, CB ef (received through Wish RAK)

Some more great cards & projects!

I'm back with some more great, great cards and projects!

Theresa Momber: Life is Good

I'm so honored and excited to be a guest designer this month for Theresa Momber... fabulous artist and paper crafter for Gina K. Designs. This month, Theresa's new set of stamps is "Life is Good". I love this set for the memories it brings for me. Going "up north" to my aunt and uncle's cabin for a week was a highlight of summers as a child. Trains have a special meaning for my husband as a child. His grandfather loved trains and we now have his train set displayed at Christmas time.

Theresa's second guest designer is Geri Utterbeck! You can see her designs tonight using "Life is Good" on her blog, Geri's Cards: Life is what you make it. You'll love what she has created tonight... seen on her blog and Theresa's!



"Snow is glistening.... walking in a winter wonderland." Love that song. Too bad I can't carry a tune. LOL!

My winter scene of the cabin has some "visitors"! I used close to cocoa and kraft dsp for this card as well as Copic markers for coloring. The sky is sponged in bashful blue using my handmade cloud template made using scalloped scissors. I finished it with the Martha Stewart snowflake punch and glitter, an eyelet and organdy ribbon, and rhinestone stickers on the snowflakes.

I love Geri's winter scene she posted to her blog for the blog hop on December 16.... gorgeous! (In the same post you will see 2 more creations using this set!)



I like the way this card turned out... the cranberry tart cardstock is rich and perfect! I used Copic markers to color the image and used another marker to stamp the sentiment at three different levels. GKD's cranberry tart and chocolate kiss cardstock are just lovely... I will need more soon! :) This was my first time using them and I love them! The designer paper was from my scrap collection and matched perfectly, but I don't remember the company. Accessories used: EK Success border punch, SU's vanilla taffeta ribbon, and CM's custom cutting system (I don't have Nesties, yet. So I have to make large circles the hard way! Some day I'll get those Nesties :).


For my last card, I used the images to make a summer scene at dusk since my memories at the cabin are during the summer. I used Gina K's kraft cardstock. Wow! What a difference in color from what I'm used to. It's fabulous! I used my cloud template, again. You can see the detail better by clicking on the photo for a larger picture. I used a lot of sponging and Copic markers to color the scene and then finished it with SU's kraft taffeta ribbon a cute button from Gina K's neutral button assortment.

Thank you, Theresa, for letting me play with your stamps!! :)

Season's Greetings, Frosty


SCS Featured Stamper: pam124

I love Pam's Gallery and I could CASE her all day long! I wish I had more time. Thank you Pam for helping me to get my Christmas cards done.

* Same them and layout.
* The Top Note is the same, but I used a circle punch instead of the SU ornament punch... wish I had that cool punch!
* I used a stamped image instead of a punched snowflake and moved the sentiment because my card is an A2 card instead of a square card.

Here's Pam's beautiful card: A Very Merry Quilted Christmas

Stamps: Frosty, Snow Swirled (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: cranberry crisp, brocade blue, white, Glittered Winter dsp (DCWV), unknow green polka-dotted dp

I found a new challenge! It's over at Stamp TV!


I found a new challenge!

Stamp TV Inspiration Challenge (12/4/09)
I was inspired by the colors, blue and green, and the snowflakes. I'm not sure which company this dp is from, but I think it may be DCWV. I used Melanie's Inspiration Mosaic stamp set to get the blocking on the snowflake dp. I also used the mosaic stamp on the ornament dp and cut out some of the pieces to fit in the design. The sign is from Gina's North Pole set and the sentiment is from Gina's Punchy Words stamps set.



Stamps: Inspiration Mosaic, North Pole, Punchy Words (Gina K. Designs)
Paper: bashful blue, old olive, white, dp
Ink: black, Copic markers for the sign, SU markers for the sentiment & dots on the "snow"
Accessories: ribbon, SU circle punch, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, dimensionals
