** This post will remain at the Top until Monday... Please Scroll down for new Post, Thanks! 

Todays our Blog Hop at the Alley Way Stamps.. there are so many fun projects using the sets from the February Release and Today Only you have a chance to win all Three new Sets!

I'm using one of the fun new sets called Tootharina!! This is a fun set... and I have a ton of ideas floating around for it! I created a card using this week's sketch at the Friday Mashup and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is anything goes this week! 



This a cute card that I think would be perfect for a child or you could be humorous and give it to an adult having dental work of something along that line. I stamped the Sentiment and images from the Tootharina set and then I created a Banner shape. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Tooth as well. It's stamped in Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi & Calypso Coral inks from Stampin' Up! 


I created  Wild Wasabi card base and then I added a piece of Pattern Paper and matted it with some White. The paper was a scrap so I don't know where it's from. Then I tied some Early Espresso Baker's Twine around the card and added the Banner piece with dimensionals. 

I decided to stamp the small tooth image in the set several times and cut them out to use like sequins. I aded some Clear wink of Stella to each of them as well. I stamped all the sentiment and tooth images in Chocolate Chip ink. And I added some Espresso Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Happy Birthday Winnie & Walter!!

Saturday, January 31, 2015


Today is the last day to help Winnie & Walter celebrate their 1 year Birthday. There have been some amazing challenges all month long! I wanted to try to do all of them but I think I managed five. Today I have a take on Lea's Mood Board challenge


I used the Scarf colors and the gold as my inspiration. 


I Stamped and heat embossed the Rose & leaves from the The Big, the Bold and Extras set with Gold onto some watercolor paper. And then I colored them in with Distress Inks. Once they were dry I cut them out. For my card base I used a piece of SU's Rich Razzleberry and then a layer of Whisper White that was embossed with the Stripes folder. I followed the Sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and added some Banners, in Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and a scrap of Gold Striped DSP I found in my stash.


I die cut a Stitched circle from the Stitched Stax from MFT. I don't have the Winnie & Walter Happy die yet... (On my list) so I used the Mama Elephant one along with the Birthday stamp from the Happy Everything set. I die cut the Happy from some Gold Foil card stock and then 3 more times from some additional white and I stacked them for dimension. The Birthday is stamped in Razzleberry onto a banner from the SU Bitty Banners die set. 

Since it's a Birthday Celebration I thought a Birthday card was in Order!!! Be sure to heave over to Winnie & Walter and check out the celebration. The Freshly Made Sketches Challenge is open until Monday @ 12pm PST.

It's Sneak Peek time at the Alley Way stamps!

Wednesday, January 28, 2015


If you are a fan of Critter sets you will love this new release and if you are a fan of Woodland Critters you will be Super Happy!!! 

Today I have a fun card for you using a few of the images in the new set coming Saturday called Stumped


I die cut a frame from a piece of Crumb Cake card stock using the MFT InstaFrame die. I stamped it with a Woodgrain embossing folder using some Chocolate Chip ink. Then I created a scene with the images from the set, Distress Inks & the Landscape Trio die set from Mama Elephant. 


I created a Neenah Solar White card base and then I added a strip of Pattern Paper from a Simon Says Stamp card Kit. I tied some Twine around the front of the card and tied it into a bow. Then I adhered the Frame using some dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment and the Deer tracks onto a scrap of White and die cut it with the MFT Stitched Circle Stax. 

This is also for the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp. This week it's anything goes! Challenge ends next Wed @8am CST.

Shaker Fun with the Alley Way Stamps!

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Happy Saturday.. Our Birthday Celebration at the Alley Way Stamps is almost over and we hope you've had fun celebrating with us. This week I have a fun shaker card for you! This is created with the fun Stitched Film Strip die from Pretty Pink Posh. I'm using the uber cute Oogles set and Cake Day from the Alley Way stamps. 


I started with a white panel and embossed it with the Polka Dot embossing folder from Stampin' Up! and then I did some sewing around the edges and the piece of DSP paper I added. I adhered the main panel to a Basic Grey base. 


I added a strip of DSP and stamped the sentiment from Cake Day in Basic Grey and added some Pool Party Candy Dots. I colored the Monsters with Copics and added Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh that matched my papers.

'Tis the Season in Pastel!

Thursday, January 22, 2015


It's Thursday and the weekend is around the corner Yay!!!! It's time for a new challenge at 'Tis the Season and this week it's a Sketch! I wasn't sure about this sketch but when it hits ya, it just hits ya! 


I used the Essentials By Ellen sets called Bokeh Dots & Brushstroke Christmas and the Stag Die. I love these sets and how fun are they in Pastels. I used Kraft, Pink Pirouette & Pool Party. 


I started with a white panel and stamped the circles in several different colors following the Sketch and then I stamped the sentiment from the Brushstroke Christmas set in Pool Party. I added some Kraft Striped Pattern paper along the edges..This is from the Teresa Collins Hello my name is collection. A must have if you are a fan of kraft! 


I added that panel to a Kraft card base and then I die cut the deer or stag from some Pink Pirouette card stock and added some Hemp Twine behind it adhering it with dimensionals. To add a little bling I added 3 small rhinestones. 

Head over to the 'Tis the Season challenge blog and see what the other Design Team members created this week and we hope you will join us!

Let's Party!!!

Wednesday, January 21, 2015


Happy Wednesday everyone.. we're still celebrating over at the Alley Way Stamps and today I have a fun project using the set Bubbly & Cake Day! This is also for the MarkerPop & Simon Says Stamp Challenges.


I started with a piece of Tim Holts watercolor paper and I created a wash of blue using the Peerless Watercolors for a sky look.. and then I stamped "Party" from the fun set Bubbly and then I added "Let's" using  the alphabet set Gabfest. I also stamped the balloons from Cake Day and the Banner where they would be going. 


I stamped the balloons, Party & Banner onto some Copic card stock and colored the letters in with Copics and then I fussy cut everyone out and paper pieces it. I added some Highlights to the balloons with a white gel pen. I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in the same colors I used on the images. This would be a great card for a Child or an invite for a Party. 

Be sure to head over to the Alley Way Stamps blog to see some more fun projects for the other Design Team members. And Link up your Alley Way Stamps project for a Chance to win a Stamp set!
