Jardin de Fleurs

I call this my well traveled card.  I gave the card a French title even though it makes me think of one of King Henry VIII English Gardens, made by lil' ole American me (lol).   Seriously though, this is my entry for the  Outlawz Wednesday's sketch challenge.    CS from my stash, printed paper-Prima Floral Fairy (6x6) paper pack, Labels 15 and square nesties, flowers from Michaels, Prima, and WOC, sentiment  Alfred Lord Tennison.

Tag Your It

Happy Saturday everybody,
     Wow, another week gone by.  Time is really moving fast, before you know it, it will be Christmas!! (Sorry, didn't mean to scare ya but yes, you are running out of Christmas shopping time-lol).  However, for now we are living in today, which brings me to the latest challenge I'm entering over at the Outlawz  the theme is "Tag Your It".  As usual the ladies have been bringing the heat, so I gotta keep up.   Here is my entry for the challenge.  When I first started cardmaking and scrapbooking, I use to make tags a lot.  They are great for trying new techniques. They are just small enough, so if you mess up (although, there are no mess ups in scrapbooking or stamping) you don't feel like you've wasted your supplies.  As I progressed in the craft, I've sort of gotten away from tag making, so this was an excellent opportunity to revisit tagging and applying some new tricks of the trade.  My design for the "Tag Your It challenge" was inspired by my favorite scrapbook artist Gabrielle P.    The CS is from my stash of Clampitt Paper Co. paper, the printed paper is Pink Paisley (6x6) paper pack Butterfly Garden Collection.  This paper pack is so beautiful, if you have it you know what I mean.   I was trying to go for a soft antiquish look.  I really love that era.  Well, enough of my day dreaming, I'll let you take a look.  Don't forget to check out the Outlawz!

Thanks so much for stopping by, Joyce (SS)

Japanese Tilda

Here is my entry for the Outlawz - Copic Group   It's an Asian theme and the cards I've seen are absolutely beautiful.  I'm just so excited to be able to have an entry to submit.  I'm not feeling so good this evening, but I was determined to get my entries in for both challenges.  I can't remember where I got the world paper from, the card stock is from a paper company (Clampitt Paper), it has a leather feel (how cool is that)?!  The silk ribbon is from Stampin' UP! (SU).  I also used a nesti and some Cyrstal Effects (SU) on the trim of her collar and the sash (not sure if it's called a sash) and on her hair clips (you probably can't tell, but it really is just darlinged).   

こんばんは (konbanwa).
Good night.

Secret Tilda

Hey everyone,
    I am trying to enter more challenges so I've had to ramp it up with cards.  I am sort of challenging myself to meet the challenges on different blogs.  The goals is to make my cards and pages as elaborate as usual but do a lot quicker (and maybe even win every once in a while).   Fall is my favorite time of the year, so I did Secret Tilda with a fall theme.  I love the Bo Bunny paper.  The fusion of colours reminds of the leaves changing colours up North (that's about the only thing I miss about the North, oh yeah and my family). I also used some Tim Holtz (the hanging sign post and the ticket).  The flowers are Micheal's (Recollection) brand and of course I coloured Secret Tilda with my Copics.    I am entering this card in the Wednesday sketch challenge over at the Outlawz

Thanx for stopping by Joyce (SS)

Just "Precious"

Hey Y'all,
  I hope all is well with everyone.  I don't celebrate Halloween but I just love this time of the year (It's Harvest time!!!).  I saw this digi on another site I follow and thought it was so bleedin' cute.  This digi can be found at Tiddly Inks I decided that this was as close to Halloween as I was going to get (this is my dark eerie look-lol).  The flowers came out better than I thought.  The leaves were made with Quickutz die.  I brushed the ends of the leaves with some T.H. Walnut Stain .  Black flowers are just a foreign concept to me; however, Prima Marketing can make any flower look good!  

Steam Punk Deb(utante)

Copics used:
skin-E27, 25, 13, 11
hair-E49, 47, 25
fur-C1, 0, and CB
clothing-V99, 95, 93, 91
umbrella-V93, 91
trimmings-Gelly Roll, Star Dust (clear) pen

Projects in the works: A Mo Manning stamp- "Oxford", I should be posting him by the end of the week.  After that a digi stamp "Hansel" (in the pumpkins or Pumpkin Hansel; I can't remember).  Be sure to come back soon to check them out!   Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Candy Box

I saw this Christmas Candy  holder in an older Magnolia INK (Christmas 2010), and decided I would give it a try.  Red is my favorite colour and I absolutely love WOC flowers.  I wasn't trying to make it a Christmas theme ; however, it sort of took that direction anyway.  I love some Magnolia!!!! You just cannot go wrong with these stamps and whoever you give a card to can't help but smile.  I think my new venture will be stepping out of the box and trying some of the Magnolia CS/papers. I am using this as one of my work products for the Bizzy Becs DT Call  (see site for requirements).  Hurry and get your entries in, you have until November 9th.  Well, I'm off for the night, 4am comes pretty early (back to work I go after a 2 month vacation). 
Sorry for the blurriness.  Thanks for stopping by.
