Have a berry good day

Hi there, it is WIW (What if Wednesday) on The House That Stamps Built blog and Wendy has a great sketch for us to create with this week.  It is finally starting to feel like Spring here and we even had a few warm summer like days last week....eeek!  It is too soon for summer!  Please Spring stay around for a little longer.

So all of the nice weather has me thinking of all of the yummy fruits that will be popping up in the local markets.  I have already seen some local strawberries and strawberry stands popping up on the roadside so I thought I would use this adorable Repeat Impression Strawberry image for my card today.


Card recipe:
Cardstock:  Red Hots-Bazzill, Black and White-Stash and Aqua Vine Print-Gina K Designs
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Coloring method:  Copic Markers
Extras:  Ribbon-Gina K Designs, Rhinestones and Glitter Glue



Here is a close up of the glitter on the leaves.


 And here is Wendy's awesome sketch!




I would love it if you would hop on over to each of my fellow Repeat Rock Stars and check out their creations.  Leave them a little love while you are there....they really like that! :)

Birthday Watermelon


Hi there!  Today the Tombow team is hopping with Regina Easter from the Hand to Paper blog.  We are thrilled to be hopping with her.



I am sharing a card I created using an adorable image from By Lori Designs.  I colored this little gal with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then added some Irojiten Color Pencil for a little more definition.

I used Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape to adhere each of the panels together.  For a few panels, I added some Tombow Foam Tabs to pop them up a bit.  A little twine and button and this card is finished and ready to go!

Be sure to stop by each of the blogs along the hop where you will find tons of inspiration for your next crafty project :)

Happy Easter Ducky

Hey there!  Easter is just around the corner and Repeat Rock Star, Joy Hadden has given the Repeat Impressions Design Team the challenge to create an Easter card/project.  

Isn't she adorable?


I stamped the Repeat Impressions Duckling #705G in Memento Black ink and colored her with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  I stamped the RI Grass Border #1597-J in light and medium green inks and die cut the image with a circle die.  Die cut two coordinating color circles and layer image to circles.  Emboss white panel with Cuttlebug EF and layer to aqua panel and green card base.  Attach scrap of dot paper to an aqua and green panel, add some twine and adhere to card with foam tape.  Add a double layer of foam tape to image panel and adhere to card.


I would love it if you would check out the challenge on The House That Stamps Built blog and play along.  You will find all of the details here.

RI Project of the Week - Easter Treats

Hello stampers!  
Happy Monday to all!

Today, I am sharing my Easter Treats project with you on.  


For starters, I embossed some glassine bags with some decorative embossing folders and cut some scallop ovals and regular ovals to create some toppers from the bags.


Next, I gathered the following Repeat Impressions stamps:  Beauty of Springtime 1304-J, Duckling 705-G and Grass Border 1507-J  and started by stamping the grass in a light and medium green inks.  Next, I stamped the sentiment with black ink to the left of the tag.


Isn't this duckling the cutest?  I colored her with markers and then fussy cut each one out.


Finally, I added the duckling to the right of the tag and tied the tags on with some bakers twine.

What kind of treats are you creating for Easter?

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hi there!  Today, Jennie Garcia has a new challenge up on the Tombow Blog.  Jennie's challenge is April Showers.  I couldn't help but think of all of the beautiful flowers that bloom after a good Spring rain.  



I watercolored this beautiful Penny Black Promise Me #4384K  image with Tombow Dual Brush pens onto some Canson 140# Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper.  This is such an easy technique and you should give it a try....soon!  

Color directly onto a bold image stamp (such as this one) with your Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then spritz the stamp 2-4 times (but don't over saturate) press stamp to paper and hold there for about a count of 10-12 to allow the ink to soak into the paper just a bit.  
When you lift the stamp you will have a beautiful image to embellish as you would like.  I added some glitter to the flower for a little sparkle!  What girl doesn't like a little sparkle?

I used Tombow's Xtreme Glue Tape to adhere the purple embossed panel to the base card and Tombow Foam Tabs to adhere the watercolor panel to the embossed panel.  Added a ribbon and pretty sentiment from the Penny Black Special Wishes #30-229 set.

Be sure to play along with the challenge and you could have a chance to win this awesome prize pack:

You have until  Monday April 7th at midnight to participate!

Remember that voting starts on Tuesday April 8th so tell your friends to vote!

Winner will be announced on Wednesday April 9th!

Last but not least you can win: The NEW Tombow Xtreme Permanent AdhesiveTombow 





Have a happy, happy Monday!

Hop with Tombow and MME

Hey, hey it's Saturday!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend wherever you are. 

All weekend the Tombow team is hopping with the My Minds Eye team to share some fun projects with you. 

You should have arrived at my blog from Valerie O'Neall's awesome blog, if not you can go back to the Tombow blog and start from the beginning.

I am sharing projects created with the Now and Then Milo collection.  I love the colors in this collection and have created two completely different projects using all of the goodies.


For my first project, I wanted to use this fun anchor paper, I love anything nautical!  I used Tombow Extreme Glue Tape to adhere each of the layers to the card with the excepting of the waves.  I used Tombow Foam Tabs to pop up the waves for some fun dimension.  I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens to color the lighthouse.  The silver eyelets are from the MME Enamel Elements pack and they are the perfect touch!

Next, I want to share some fun little treat boxes with you.


I love that this collection has both feminine and masculine papers and elements in it.

I used Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape to hold the boxes together as it is super strong. I used Tombow Mono Multi to adhere the print panels to the box and again to attach the decorative elements.  These boxes are the perfect little gifty for someone special.

 Commenting for your chance to win this blog hop prize will end March 30th at Midnight EST! We will announce the Winner on March 31st via our Social Media outlets!


The prize will include:


Blog Prizes
