Happy Hello & tip Tuesday

Hello there. Here it is another Tuesday. It seems that the days are flying away.

I still have my cold, but not letting it get me down. I found some mojo so things are getting done.

I did this card at work. I had these snowman stamps already, all i had to do is color the images.
All paper is by DCWV. This stack is called Christmas Stack. I love the papers in it. So good for holiday cards. The snowman are a stamp from Stampin Up . I embossed paper with a Tim Holtz sheet music embossing folder. I love it. so useful.

It did a challenge for the clean and simple challenge at Splitcoast. only thing is that i didn't do any stamping on it. I didn't have the right stamp at work to finish it. I used a Martha Stewart French Scrolls punch on the polka dot paper.

TIP: Always stamp more than one image in one sitting, you never know when you might need it for a later card.  Example:

This house mouse image i stamped multiples of when i was laid up and had them colored. All i had to do is make cards with them.

Well Thanks for hanging out with me today.

Hello all. I wanted to do a challenge that Made by Momo's Tuesday's challenge.
It had to be a project that had some embossing of some type in it.
I used my new Tim Holtz brick embossing folder. i rubbed some distress ink-aged mahogany. I used nestabilites scalloped ovals. I stamped thank you from Wordsworth and added some white gel pen.
Paper is from Georgia pacific and DCWV.  I have been using alot of Kraft paper lately. Its been a great color to use. This is a A2 sized card. the brick layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  i love the color combo that i tried.

I am going to do my other challenges early this week so stay tuned.

Throwback Thursday challenge Entry & tip Tuesday

well two things in this post . A throwback challenge and tip Tuesday.

 I finally got my entry for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge.
We had to make a Christmas themed project. It had to be a old cartridge.
I used Kraft paper as my base. Polka dot paper from AC Crafts for my layer. I cut out my cute reindeer from Paper Doll Dress up. I colored them with a copic and put pearls on their noses. I cut out the Sentiment from the cartridge Beyond Birthdays. I used jewels to bling it up. I think its really cute. hope everyone likes it.

Tip Tuesday:
When inking a large stamp and stamping it. Ink the stamp then leave the stamp face up and put the paper on top of it. Rub the paper to get a clean image stamped. It helps to do this for people who can't press really hard to stamp a image.

Thanks for hanging out with me. Tanya

New CAS challenge card.

Happy Monday all.
I saw the challenge on CAS on splitcoast stampers early this morning. You had to do a sympathy card.
I had to do this challenge. I used the maple leaf from Hero Arts. I really like this stamp for different cards. I colored the leaves with the crayola markers i have at work. I really need to color with my copics. I did some faux stitching with a black glaze pen. The letters are from K and Company.

I also did a card for My pink Stamper's think pink week. She really inspired me to make this fun little card.

The layer was some pattern paper i got from my local stamp store.  I also used some paper company pattern paper around the circle. The hedgehog is from Hampton Arts. I had to color her pink. The chipboard circles are from making memories. The sentiment is from MY Pink Stamper-Super Sweet Occasions.

I had time during my lunch today to do a really quick card for Fall.

I used Kraft card stock to use as my base. I distress a strip of orange card stock to go in the middle. I used a embossed scrap from my stash. I kept alot of Thomas Kincade photos from a calender that i had. The photos make really easy cards. Looks like a step into time , doesn't it?

Well thanks for hanging out with me today.
