Magnolia Stamp Lovers Button Challenge

Good Morning Friends!!!
It’s Wednesday….which means tomorrow is …Thursday…which means that..the next day is Friday….and that’s the day before…
My card, for The Magnolia Stamp Lover’s Challenge, uses the so, so cute Rocking Tilda…but I think of her as Hula Hoop Tilda, because Rocking Tilda makes me think Tilda went Wild with the Kenny K girls. Not a good picture in my head, ..not at ALL.
Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for visiting me today!!
Supplies Used:
Rocking Tilda

Copic Markers
Memento Ink

Happy Summer!!!

Today…is the first day of Summer and Independence Day is just weeks away here in the United States.  So far, our weather in California has been unusually mild and I am really, really…REALLY LOVING IT! I have a feeling though that triple digits are lurking just around the corner. Yay.
Tilda with Stardress
On my Easel Card for the SSCC Red, White and Blue challenge, I combined a bit of paper piecing along with some Copic coloring. That Tilda with Stardress is working those Patriotic colors isn't she?

Making your own Embossing Plate

Do it yourself embossing folder
and….for those of you who prefer a written tutorial….here you go!
Cut a 5 x 6 1/2 piece of chipboard. I used the back of a 12 x 12 paper stack .P1030132
Using a paper punch, cut out about 24 butterflies.
With your favorite adhesive, glue the butterflies to your 6” x 5 1/2” piece of chipboard, 2 layers thick
in a random pattern…
Run through your die cutter with an embossing mat.
It looks so much better IRL…honest!
Now…sit back and admire your work. Smile

Scrappy Frogs Use Red Challenge

Good Golly! It’s not wrong to  love a set of stamps, is it? The stamps that Papertrey Ink came out with last month…made my toes curl….in a very  good way, mind you! The first set is Garden Variety and it includes a bunch of fun Seed Packet options along with gardening tools and gloves. The second set is Year of Flowers. That set has all of Papertrey Inks Year of Flower stamps…but in mini versions!!!
PTI Garden Variety1
Papertrey Ink actually had a seed packet die, but it wasn’t in stock when I placed my order soooooooo…I got my Cricut out again (that’s twice this month) and used the Crayon Box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More to make a Seed Packet, which I am soooooo cleverly using as a gift card holder! I know..I’m such a smarty pants! Smile PTI Garden Variety Gift Card Holder
Please do not forget to head over to the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT has for inspiration and to enter the challenge…of course. :)

SSCC Embossing Challenge

P1030181 copyToday, it is my turn to kick off a brand new challenge over at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central and since I have a love for embossing, but never seem to be able to use it these days…I thought you might want to have some fun with me. Whether you’re are an old pro at it or have never given it a try, I hope you’ll join us!
I made my background for this card with Cindy’s stamps, SSD Heart Circle Elements. My sentiment and image stamp are from Papertrey Ink.
