Tasty Tuesday At Your Next Stamp!

Hey everyone!  It is time for Tasty Tuesday at Your Next Stamp and we are using this fun cupcake photo for inspiration again this week!


I was inspired by the umbrella and decided to play with a much-loved, older YNS stamp that hadn’t seen ink in a long time, Rainy Day Fhiona.

Peg TT May 14

Paper: My Mind’s Eye  Stamps: Rainy Day Fhiona, Awesome Journal words (Your Next Stamp)  Ink: A Muse Black dye, Walnut Distress Ink  Accessories: Nesties, Pearls, Copic markers, Glossy Accents, Stickles, EK Success border punch, Natural Jute.

I hope all my Canadian friends had a great long weekend, I didn’t get one (I had to work), but it was still nice to not have to get up early to rush the kids off to school yesterday.  I also didn’t get much stamping time in, but that is okay I hope to later this week!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


RCC 59 ~ Paper Piecing!

Hey everyone!  This week’s Ribbon Carousel challenge is to paper piece!  I love the look of paper piecing, I just don’t do it that often, I think I am going to have to change that!

I stamped and colored my (favorite stamp ever!) image and then stamped it again on the dp for her inner tube and bikini, cut them out and added them to the image.  I finished it off with the sentiment, perfect for hot summer days on the lake, and a little bling and Pink Sorbet Baker’s Twine.  I also used my new favorite go to card stock, Bazzill Card Shoppe, it is amazing!

Paper: Echo Park, Bazzill Card Shoppe (Juicy Pear, Easter Grass)  Stamps: Sparkle Creations (Swimming Lucy), A Muse sentiment  Ink: A Muse black dye ink, Copic markers  Accessories: Pink Sorbet Baker’s Twine, Rhinestones, Smooch Glitz, Spica glitter pen, Sakura white gel pen.

The boys are almost done for the summer, I can’t wait to be able to sleep in, especially since I am working nights!!!  Maybe I will be able to get a little stamping done at night when I get home.  🙂

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Go Team!

Hey everyone!  It feels like it has been way longer than a week since I last posted!  The move was crazy considering the distance we had to go (not far at all) and the boys not being in school due to the teachers being out on strike for the last 3 days.  Then to top it all off I got sick, but things are starting to come together here and I even have a card to share!

For today’s card I inked up the brand new Sitting Casual set from The Greeting Farm that was just released last week.  I paper pieced the chair and then drew in the hard wood floor and colored it with Copic’s.   I adore Ian so it was really an easy choice for me, I can already see lots of cards made with this cute set in the future!

Paper: Echo Park  Stamps: The Greeting Farm (Sitting Casual)  Ink: A Muse, Copic markers, CTMH White pigment ink  Accessories: Copic multi liner, brads, sewing machine.

I will be back soon to share pics of my new crafty space, you know it was the first thing I unpacked! lol  I hope you all have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

Drunken Stampers Challenge #25 ~ A sketch!

Happy Saturday!  This week at the Drunken Stampers we are gettin’ sketchy!  I love playing with sketches and use them all the time when my mojo is trying to hide!

I had fun playing and decided to do a little paper piecing on the dress and boots.  I always wanted to have knee-high boots when I was younger but my legs are just too short for them and I end up looking kinda funny! 

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: C.C. Designs, Amuse sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: May Arts Jute, Kaiser Pearls, Smooch Illuminate.

Don’t forget to stop by and check out the rest of the lovely Drunken Stamper gals have done with the sketch this week!

Have a fab Saturday and thanks for stopping by!

Life is good!

Happy Thursday!  I have been busy running around again and not getting much of anything done when all I want to do is stamp!  I coloured this image months ago and finally got around to using her.  Hopefully I will get some good quality stamping time in on Saturday when Lisa and Donna (who I finally get to meet!) are here for a play day!  😀

Paper: Bazzill, Basic Grey  Stamps: The Greeting Farm, The Cat’s Pajamas  Ink: Versafine, Copic markers  Accessories: Fine detail ep, Prima flowers, Pretties, Rhinestones, Stickles.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Happy Thursday!  I know I am late posting my card today, I finished it late yesterday and I had to wait to take a pic so that the light was good in my room.  My mojo seems to be taking a little holiday now, I worked all afternoon and came up with mostly garbage!  I am happy with the result, just wish it hadn’t taken so long to get to.

Paper: Bazzill, Basic Grey  Stamps: C.C. designs  Ink: Memento, Copics  Accessories: Fiskars punch, Glitter Ritz glitter, Prima flower, BG button, May Arts jute, Sakura white gel pen.

This afternoon I am heading out to have a late lunch with a couple of other Moms from the school, then I hope to find a bit of time to create that is if  my mojo is willing! 

I hope you have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!
