Welcome to my World

Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other other craft projects. I am also going to share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Two Fun cards for today

Here is the card I also cased from Stamp Muse.
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=177892 Love the polka dots so I used them also.
Card size & Layout: I used full size card instead of a squares one
Colors: I used light Mauve Bazill dots, Rich Razzlesbery, White

Thanks for this great feateured stamper.

This is a brayered background card for a swap I needed to make. I inked the brayer with my Stampin Spots in alternating stripes of pink and green, then added a few dots of yellow here and there and ran the brayer over that. Let dry and aseemble card. Very simple.

I needed a card for a black and white swap. Did not know what I wanted to do so searched the gallery and the light bulb came on quickly when I saw Clownmom's layout. I was on a mission then as it inspired me. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&cat=17303 Thanks Clownmom.

I just received this stamp set and wanted to use it really bad. Well I did not have paintchips on hand so DH and I headed off to the store. While there I think we found the dishwasher we want and are very much in need.

As you can see everything I used was is Black and white. I think it turned out really great. The paintchip goes from a dark gray to black.

Varigated Medallion

First off I will admit that I cased: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...?&si=WT231
I used my little stampin' spots to ink the medallion and then stamped it once full-colored and stamped again using the lightened version. Added some Rhinestones to the medallion and a sentiment

Stamps: Medallion SU
Paper: White and Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Brilliant Blue, Green Galore, Glorious Green, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac

Techniques: Using Variagated

Another Sketch

I liked the paper so much on the card below that I tackled another SCS Sketch challenge.

Recipe: Stamps - Razzle Dazzle
Paper- Tea Party DP, Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray, Certainly Celery, So Saffron.
Ink - Basic Gray
Very Simple anyone could do this one. The three gray squares are 3" and the tops are 2 3/4" each. Offset and it is complete.

Two Challenges in one Card

I made this card using two challenges posted this week - The Color challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=453063 and teh Sketch Challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=453293. Not often do I get to do even one challenge but thse both worked great this week.

Recipe: Bleached the chocolate chip with Upsy Daisy and one of the greeting in that set. Mounted to Certainly Celery but 1/2 inch longer for the button placement. The designer paper I used is SU Tea Party which is two-sided, just reversed for the smaller piece. These were mounted on the Chocolate Chip again and then on the Certainly Celery Card Base.

Be sure to checkout Splitcoaststampers.com for the instruction to links above and mnay other great ideas. There are hundreds of other bloggers there where you can pick up ideas also.

Recipe - Spinach Corn Salad

Another Recipe for those interested. This is a very good salad.

Today is my first day back to work after being off for 5 weeks. Wish me luck as we were supposed to be moved by now but things are packed and we are not moving now until the end of Sept. Will probably have quite a bit to do to get the place back in order.

Add Brown Silk Ribbon to the top for embellishment.
