Hayride & Apples Layout

Hello my friends,

I’m sharing another Stampendous layout today – all full of newly minted stamps just seen at CHA last week!

Hayride

& Apples

On the top layout, the kiddos on the wagon was colored using Copic Markers and I love that I had the perfect photos to match the stamp – what are the odds of that!! On the bottom layout, that Autumn text is just divine! I embossed it with various colors of Stampendous embossing powders (from opaque to clear colored powders) with the intent of having the colors fade to transparent as Fall approaches. This is the 1st time I’m using embossing on a layout – something I will keep for a longer time than a card and I wanted to make sure it’s archival safe. I discovered that Stampendous embossing powders are acid free and archival safe for your scrapbooks – here is where I found it and a whole host of other tips and techniques I never knew existed!

Have fun browsing and learning new things!

Pretty little blue birdie

Good morning everyone!

It’s time for another challenge at CMC Copic challenge… this week’s theme is “blues”. Use your blue Copics silly – not how you are feeling.

Ever made a card in your mind and then try to translate it into a real card – sometimes, it happens and sometimes it doesn’t. Well .. this one happened for me (solely my opinion of course) – I’m TOTALLY thrilled with this card. Love the vibrance of the blue (the copic colors as well as the papers from Teresa Collins), the texture of the fluted paper (Canvas Corp), the pop of yellow with just enough girly (Martha Stewart punch). The birdie image is from Sweet and Sassy stamps – so plump and elegant – thanks Korin.

Please go here to enter in the challenge. You can use any image you want as long as they are colored with any alcohol markers AND fit the theme of course. Your card must also be newly created.

The winner of this challenge will win digi stamps from Sweet n Sassy Stamps and when you play along the entire month (just 2 cards), you are also entered into the monthly drawing for the shopping spree at Oozak. How can you beat two prize opportunities – head on over to be inspired and get to coloring.
