Sassy Dahlia

Wow, girls check out the Technique Challenge on SCS! I seen cards done and just had to check it out. This is so cool. I had a lot of fun with this one and the directions provided was fantastic.

For the today's challenge check here. And for the directions check here.

What I did was cut my card at 5x10 and folded in half to have my main card be 5x5. I used Real Red card stock for that.

Then I got my scalloped punch out, mine measures 1 3/4" but I believe the SU scalloped punch is a little smaller. You can also use a circle punch but the bigger the better. But, then again you don't want it so big you can't fit it on the card. Anyway, I used the Sassy Designer Paper (retired) but still pretty.

Followed the directions. Glued this to a Whisper White piece of card stock that is 4 5/16 square. And my Dahlia was formed. Now the center I have a beautiful gem stone brad that I got from Karen Gibson when I won her blog candy a while ago. Then I layered on Basic Black card stock and punched with the retired Wrought Iron punch on the corners. Layered my WW piece in this and then onto the Real Red that I have for my main card. On my Real Red I stamped little butterflies in White Craft Ink.

Are these not the most prettiest flowers you have seen in a long time? I love how this turned out. Go check out the Technique Challenge this week and create. You won't be disappointed with the results.

Flower Basket

What an awesome flower basket this is huh! This basket measures 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 and I am not sure yet but think one of those Kleenex boxes would fit in this. I am debating what I am putting in mine yet. Any cleaver ideas? It does make a nice and pretty Spring Basket though. Sure beats the winter blues.

All I really did on this one is cut out the pattern. Which I am including. Remember you need to cut out two of these. And that the handle is approx. 3/4" wide by 11" long. Then I stamped my Stipple Rose (SU) on it and colored in with chalks. Took some Craft White Ink and stamped some tiny dots all over it. Kinda looks like Baby's Breath when you see it up close. But really added to the project.

I am not sure of the color as it is not SU card stock it is cheap stuff from Walmart. But looks real close to our new in color Soft Sky.

I used brads to add the handle to the basket. The basket also is stamped with the dots with the craft white ink. Here is a close up of one of the sides so you can see the dots up close and personal. I got the little flower brads that attach the handle from my friend Susan Cooper. Aren't they just to cute? Now if you can't bring up the template just right click on it and save to your computer then you can go in and print it off.
Not sure why but sometimes what I post on here for pictures or templates you can't always just click on it to come up to copy. So easiest was is to just right click and save to your computer then go in and print it out.

Hope you enjoy today's project.

Easy Bookmarks

I have been making a bunch of bookmarks. Already gave some away to two of my sons teachers. I sure hope they enjoy them, they are so easy to use and you don't need to dog ear the corners of your pages using these handy little bookmarks. And being teachers I am sure they will get a great amount of use out of them.
I am also thinking these would make a great Valentine's gift for his classmates. So going to make a bunch more only ones with kid designs on them.

These are the 3 color ones I have done so far and I also did 2 styles of them. Not sure which I like the best but am really leaning on the rounded corner one. What do you think?

Also attaching the template to make both of these for yourself.

Ohh La La!

During the weekend SCS had a VSN (Virtual stamp night). I wasn't feeling to well so didn't do it. But tonight I started feeling better so made this card. It is for a friend of ours who celebrates a birthday in February. I don't know a man that wouldn't like a card like this. Better mention this is the front and back of the card.

On the scan the card looks dirty but it is not, it is my scanner, I guess it needs another cleaning. But, was just to lazy to do it tonight. So ignore those spots.

Pattern is here for you to use. I printed mine to fit the page as my printer program says and it printed out to be for a card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

The tattoo on the buns is from a clip art I found on the net. This card is pretty simple to make, just follow the pattern. With the clip art, you copy to your computer, open this with your Microsoft word and load this image. Make sure when you go to print it out you print it in mirror image. Directions for doing this is also on my blog here. You print this on acetate. And you create your own rub-ons.

Hope you get a kick out of my card today. It was just bought to my attention who made this cute pattern so I would like to Thank Frances Byrne, you can see her work on her blog here. Thanks again Frances for the pattern and the challenge.

Friendship Star & Wild Duck

Last one for a while, I am going to work on more cards and scrap book pages. So stay tune for that. This one is called Friendship, but goes by many names again. Most quilt blocks have many names to them all they really did was change the color or add a piece to them. If I remember correctly this is also called the Whirly Gig.

Supplies needed"

1 1/2 square punch.

Whisper White and Pretty in Pink Card stock

Designer Paper of choice.

Mauve Mist Ink Pad

Small background stamp

Stamp your PIP card stock with MM. Then cut your card stock at 5x10 and fold in half to get your 5x5 card.

Cut the WW at 4 3/4 x 4 3/4

Punch out 6 PIP squares and 3 designer paper squares.

Cut 2 of the PIP in the diagonal and 2 of the designer paper on the diagonal.

Start in upper left hand corner of your WW. Going in approx. 1/8 inch from top and side, lay your first piece PIP square. Then going across lay 1/2 diagonal piece of PIP then the designer one and then a square again.

Follow the sample when this is completed just mount to your main card and your done.

I also did a smaller one of the Wild Duck only this one I made smaller using the 1 1/4 punch and your end up with a card that is 4 1/4x 4 1/4. Hope you enjoy this one too. Remember you can always do different sizes all you need is a different sized punch.

I hope you are all having a wonderful warm weekend. Here in Central MN it is really cold. Last night we had temps. at -20 and wind chills in the -40 below. It was so cold, today has not been much better. Suppose to warm up next week and I can't wait to see those temps in the teens or higher again.

Blender Pen Refil Recipe

I found these in an email I got a long time ago and wanted to share them with you all.

2 teaspoons glycerin
4 teaspoons distilled water
1/4 teaspoon rubbing alcohol
It says you do not need to pull the blender tip out, just use an eye dropper.
This will go a long way so don't double it!

Stamp Cleaner Recipe

I found this recipe a while back:
2 Tablespoons glycerin (in the Rx dept.)
8 oz. distilled water
1 teaspoon baby wash
Hope this helps!

Sassy Churn Dash Quilt Block

Glad so many of you are liking the square quilt cards. They are so fun and easy to do. My aunt which is also my godmother gave me my first quilt when I was like 10 or 12 years old. I still have it but it is really getting ragged. I have quit using it and put it in a safe place to keep. So she is my inspiration on making these cards also. I have a few of her patterns and will someday dig out my sewing machine and make another quilt.

This block is called the Churn Dash, but has many other names too. This is one of the first quilts I made. Which at that time I cut all the pieces by hand. I didn't know about the short cuts and all the goodies you can use for quilting. But, have since got those goodies for my quilting and now do it the easy way.

Ok so to make this one you will need the following:

Whisper White, Real Red card stock

Sassy Designer Paper which is now retired.

1 3/8 Punch

Snail adhesive

WW card stock cut at 5 x 10" fold in half to get a 5x5 card.

Cut your RR at 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 for your background (border)

Punch out 3 RR squares with the 1 3/8 punch and 6 of the Sassy Designer Paper.

With 2 of the RR cut in half at an angle.

With 2 of the Sassy Designer Paper cut them in half at an angle.

Now the easiest way to do this is to lay out your pattern like in the sample card. Then you will glue and move the pieces one by one onto the RR background (border).

Start at 1/8 in and 1/8 down from the corner with your sassy designer paper, then do the RR, and go across.

2nd row do the same only it is all 1 3/8 squares.

3rd row do that same as the first.

Layer the RR on the WW and your done.

Now wasn't that an easy card to make?

Tomorrow I will have another one for you to make. It is called the Split Nine Patch. So have your punches and card stock ready.

Hope you enjoyed today's project and are joining me in making these. I would really love to see how yours looks. These cards would make a really nice gift for the quilter in your life to use.

Until tomorrow happy stamping or for this one piecing.

8 Pointed Star Quilt Block Card

I decided to make a quilt block card and had so much fun with it. I am also a quilter so doing a card this way was really fun. I am going to be making more in different designs. How many of you are quilters too?

On this sample I used the designer paper I had left over from yesterday's project. Very Vanilla Card stock and Mellow Moss and lastly Bravo Burgundy. Choc. Chip SU Marker.

You also need the 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 Punches

This card is 5x5 for the main card.

Punch out 5 Bravo Burgundy squares with the 1 3/8 punch

Punch out 2 Mellow Moss squares with the 1 1/4 punch, 3 of the designer paper with the same punch.

Layer one of the designer paper squares on the BB square. And do the same with 2 more. You will cut 2 of them on the diagonal.

Layer the MM on the BB on the remaining 2. Cut these in half on the diagonal also.

Layer these as shown in my sample.

Very Vanilla cut at 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.
1st Row: Now with one of your 2 pointed pieces mount that on the VV at 1 3/8 in from the top side.

2nd Row do the same only on the edge of the card stock. Then add your center piece and your other 2 pointed piece to that. See my sample for placement.

3rd row do the same as the 1st.

Cut MM at 4 3/4 x 4 3/4

Mount your VV Quilt Piece to the MM, being careful to get it even all around. Mount this to the BB main card.

With your Choc. Chip marker, add dashed lines for stitching on quilt pieces as show in the sample. I tried to do mine at about 1/8 inch.

And Walla you have a Quilt Card finished.
Hope you have enjoyed today's project and if you make one please share with me.

Old Fashion Lilac's

I am doing a sketch challenge from another blog Poetic Artistry . This is my card that I created for this challenge. I love how it turned out. I really love things that are old fashioned and this paper is old fashioned to me.

Designer Paper used is (retired) Recollections

Stamp Set used is Blossoms Abound, my good friend Susan gave me this set, Thank You Susan.

Card Stock is Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy and main card is Whisper White although you can't see it as it is covered with the designer paper.

Ink used is Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive

Choc. Chip Marker

Square Punches sizes 1 3/8, 1 1/4

I cut my designer paper to 4 1/4x 5 1/2 layered onto the White main card.

With the 1 3/8" Punch punch out 1 Burgundy pieces, with the 1 1/4 punch cut out 1 Mellow Moss pieces.

Layer these two pieces together Burgundy on bottom and Mellow Moss on top. Add stitching lines to the Mellow Moss with your Choc. Chip Marker.

With Burgundy cut a piece 2 3/4"x 2" and one cut at 2"x4".

With a small piece of designer paper cut 1 9/16 x 1 13/16

Layer this on the 2 3/4x 2 piece of Burgundy

Cut Very Vanilla Piece at 1 3/4 x 3 14/16. With Bravo Burgundy Ink pad and Blossoms Abound Lilac under piece stamp off once you have inked it then onto the Very Vanilla, this will give you a lighter color on the under part of the Lilac, next take the top part of the Lilac and stamp over the top of your lower part of your Lilac. This give it that two toned effect.

With Old Olive and the Leaf Vein stamp, stamp on Very Vanilla at the top part of the Lilac. Then take the leaves and stamp off once before adding to your leaf vein. Again the two toned effect. Layer this piece on the Bravo Burgundy.

Now grab the main card with the designer paper on it and take the Punched Out Square and Cut in half, this will give you both sides. Layer this one your card centered both ways from the side and top and bottom. Layer the 2 3/4x2 piece with the designer paper over that so that the points on the squares stick out from underneath. Then the piece you just stamped with the Lilac on it layer this over the top of your piece you just put down. I used pop dots for this piece so it stood out more. And that is it your card is done.

Here is the sketch for you to make one yourself. I hope you join Julee and I and make one also. Please share when you do.

Gentle thoughts of you

Another sketch challenge card. You know you all can join in on the sketch challenge. I would really love to see what you do. Just leave a comment here with this posting and leave link to you card, be it on your blog or on SCS.

Ok with that said, here is my card. Anyone remember the set Garden Collage? I just love that set so spring time to me. So I pick that set to work with for this sketch.

Garden Collage

Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink, Night of Navy, Whisper White Card stock

Black Ink Pad

Versamark Pad

2 Scalloped Punches

Rose and Night of Navy Ribbon

First off I stamped my background of the Soft Swirls ( retired ) in Versamark on the Bashful Blue main card.

Cut y our Pixie Pink card stock 5x3 and stamp with versamark. I used a retired stamp set for this too. It has little butterflies and dots on it. Don't remember the name.

Stamped my image of the bird on Whisper White card stock, punched out. Colored in with chalks. Shaded a little darker on the edges with the chalk to make it stand out more.

Punched out another scalloped circle slightly larger in Night of Navy card stock. With my white gel pen I put dots around the edges in each scallop.

Mounted the bird piece to the Night of Navy.

Mount the Pixie Pink onto the Bashful Blue. Add your ribbon. I used two colors and layered them one upon the other. Then mounted the Scalloped pieces to the card.

Stamped my verse "Gentle thoughts of you."

We had such a beautiful day in MN today. We was close to 40 degree's which for this time of year is not normal. But, we enjoyed having it. I made it to the post office to mail out a PIF ( Pay it forward ).
My ears are feeling better today so thought I would stamp tonight. I hope I got it in, in time for it to come to your mail boxes tomorrow.

Make your own Rub-Ons

I have been sick with fluid in my ears and it is tilting my ear drums forward. So have not done much stamping or anything. Was looking through my email though and found this so thought I would share it with everyone. I know I would really love to try this but it will have to be when I feel better. If you try it please put a review in the comments area, I would love to hear how it went for you.


This technique is just too cool! Rub-ons are all the rage these days, but you may find it difficult to locate the perfect theme, color, etc. for your project. Well, now you can custom make your own!
Supplies you will need:
Transparency sheet or a piece of page protector, cut to fit your printer. (Most will be 8.5 x 11)Popsicle stick (or similar object to rub the ink)Computer and Word Processing Program Printer
1) Open your Word Processing Program, and type the words you want to use for your rub-ons. Choose your favorite font, color, size etc. You can even add a graphic if you like!
2) Choose "Print". Click on "properties" and choose the following: "Best Quality" (you want as much ink as possible on the transparency) "Mirror" or "Word Flip" (this will flip your text so that it's backwards.
3) Now print. If you're using a transparency, be sure and print on the slick side, not the rough side. If you're using page protector, either side is fine.
4) After it prints, set it aside to dry for 15 minutes. Don't touch it, it will smudge!
5) Choose the paper/project you want to use. Place the transparency, ink side down on the paper. Using the Popsicle stick, rub firmly across all the letters. Lift it up and voila! Your text is on your project!

Cards I got for Christmas

As promised yesterday here are the homemade cards I got from friends. Everyone did an awesome job and they was displayed proudly with all my cards.

First one is from Bev. I love the colors and of course the angel. Great job Bev and thanks so much for thinking of me through the holidays.

Next card is from Danita, she used a cute retired set and retired wheel. Have both in my collection. On one of the groups I used to belong to I was a night owl and did all the uploading to the group at night cause I couldn't sleep. I got the nick name of Elfy. LOL, so this card bought back some memories. Thanks Danita for thinking of me. Such a bright and cheery card for the winter blues!

Next is from Holly, she made this into a tri-fold card and such a beautiful job she did too. I love the old fashioned sleigh scene on this one. Thanks Holly for thinking of me this Christmas. My parents used to talk of times of taking sleigh rides. I wish I was able to do that.

Next we have Shirley, she did a smaller card but it has all the fun of a larger card. This one is a pop up so you will see both views of this one. Such a cute card and a great idea. Thank You Shirley for thinking of me. Love the pop up of the card and so did the kids.

And lastly but certainly not least is a card from Tracy. Such a pretty card. Love the snowglobe on this card. She did snowflakes on the globe and they just glitter. Very Pretty. Thanks Tracy, looks like a MN winter.

Angels Amoung Us

I just love angels and Holly was kind enough to stamp me some so I could play. Don't have the set but will be watching for it on eBay. Holy Triptych is the name of the set. Such a beautiful set.
Anyway here is the card. I hope you enjoy it. This is also a sketch that Holly sent me so she played a part in this one twice. Thanks Holly!

I used the following materials:

WW, Glorious Green, Handsome Hunter and Basic Black

I used my cuttlebug embossing folder on the Glorious Green, cut angles and added a layer or black and a layer of white. Mounted that to the Handsome Hunter cs.

Then I took my image of the angel and colored her in with chalks done in green tones. Her wings are done with more mustard chalk. Mounted her to basic black and then on to white and added her to the center of the card. I love the effect this card gives.

I will try and share more tomorrow. I am having some problems with my ears and am going in on Friday to have them checked again. So tomorrow if I am up to it I will share some of the homemade Christmas cards I got. Such beauties!
