Timmy Doesn't Do Mornings - C Thru The Woods

Hi Everyone

Just a quick card this morning to share with you, and what I have done with Timmy one of the latest stamps from C Thru The Woods.

I thought he would look cute in his PJ's with a coffee cup in hand.  The clock is a file from the Silhouette online store, and the sentiment is computer generated.

Here is a look at the inside, which has a pocket, the perfect place for a Starbucks card to 'hide'.

Thanks for stopping by today - see you next time.

Happy Holidays from a 'Tartan Miss' - A Scrap N Place

Hi Everyone

Today I am guest designer over at A Scrap N Place - thank you Terri.  My card today is probably one of my very favorite, probably because it uses one of the new Prima dolls, but also because I love this Authentique 'Believe' paper.

How cute is she dressed in her tartan outfit?  The hat is actually part of the set included with the Prima 'Dog Treats' stamp set, and the bag is from the Prima 'Boutique Set'.  What do you think of her 'fur' trimmed boots?

Thanks for stopping by today.

Blues Brother Bag

Hi Everyone

Time for another C Thru The Woods DT project, this week using Andrew.  As many of your know I also design for A Scrap N Place (my favourite scrapstore in Loveland, CO,) and this is where my love of the guy stamps began.  Anyway I was browsing around the store when I discovered this adorable die set, I knew I NEEDED them for my guys.  Here is what I came up with.

This black gift bag is from a make-up store, so I used a selection of strips of washi tape to cover up the logo.  I hand cut the images, coloured them with ProMarkers and paper pieced the clothes.  The only extra touches I needed were the hats and sunglasses.

I used pop-dots behind the guys to give a little more dimension.

I added a title on the other side of the bag, (just in case there is someone who doesn't recognize this duo!)

Thanks for stopping by today, see you next time.

Christmas Cards from Scraps - A Scrap N Place

Hi Everyone

I am guest designer over at A Scrap N Place - as always Terri thanks for having me.  Today I have two cards made up from leftover scraps of paper.

I saw this card on Pinterest, and loved how simple it was.  Here is a link to the original card .

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the date and the holly leaves, and then used sequins for the berries.

For my second card I used strips of patterned paper to weave a colourful background for the heart die (from Memory Box).

Here is a close-up and a look at the sentiment inside.

I hope you liked my projects this week - see you next time.

'Phantom' Tag

Hi Everyone

Today I have a new DT project for you using Drake one of the newer guys from C Thru The Woods.  Perhaps some of you who have this guy see mainly using him for Halloween, but wait there is so much more to Drake than that.

Here is a tag that I made, isn't he just perfect as the Phantom of the Opera?

I cut the image by hand, paper piecing the clothing.  For his cloak I stamped it on shiny black paper and used fine detail black embossing powder so the the detail of the 'fabric' would stand out more.  The curtain is a file from from Silhouette studio, and the background paper is from a Recollections pack called 'Steampunk Botanica'.

The rose he is holding is from my stash, originally white and coloured with ProMarkers.

The word 'Phantom' was added using rub-on letters.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project today,  Drake isn't going to far away because I have plans for him for another project next month...stay tuned.

Until next time.

No Peeking Under The ChristmasTree - A Scrap N Place

Hi Everyone

Today I am guest designer over a A Scrap N Place.  Of course I just had to play with one of the new Prima dolls that Terri has in store, along with the beautiful 'Believe'  Christmas paper by Authentique, (for this project I used the 6x6 paper pad.)

Here are a few close-ups of the card.

Don't you just love the sequin ornaments?

Thanks for taking a peek at my project - see you next time.

Happy Birthday Betty! Secret Hop

Hi Everyone

Happy Birthday to Betty Roberts (Simply Betty Stamps) who turns the BIG 4 0 today!

We thought that we would make it as special as we possibly can, and so the Awesome Rachel Sharp at drew this wonderful image for us to use just for Betty's Birthday.  A whole bunch of super talented ladies have made some unbelievable projects which have all been mailed out to Betty (would love to see her face when that mail arrives!)

We thought that you would like to see these projects too, you should have arrived here from Jackie's blog, but if you have just stumbled across this by chance you may want to go back to the beginning to Corinne's blog, because you won't want to miss a thing.

Here is my card.

And a couple of close-ups.

Your next stop along the hop is Ruza's blog and I just know she has something fabulous to share.

Thanks for stopping by today, and once again HAPPY 40TH BETTY!!!!!
