Inchies with Tim

Tim Holtz that is. When I saw the challenge at Try it on Tuesday... I had a different stamp set in mind... But starting looking at my draw of Tim Holtz stuff (yes I have a separate draw! LOL) I saw one of these mini collage stamps I had bought and thought this would be perfect to do the window pane effect!.

I enjoyed making this card and may do more in the future.
First thing I did was stamp the image on white cs with sprayed it with Turquoise Glimmer mist. cut each piece into one inch squares then inked all sides of the little inchie.
Mounted it on SU cs and inked that too.
(I was psyched that the clock in an inch!!!)
The base card I used Tim Holtz swirls mask took two different color inks and blended in to get the masking. I then glimmer mist the whole front in the same color as the inchie. Mounted it on the blue cs after wrapping the bottom in blue fibers.
I added light blue pearls and a gold pearl in the middle of the clock.

Entering this in Try it on Tuesday and also Crafty Catz Weekly - pearl and Swirls, and anything goes at CRAFTS and ME

Topiary card

I created this card for a friends of mine who just lost an Aunt.
The stamp set is from The paper Shop, the card stock and paper is from SU.
The layout I used is from The Paper Players Challenge #40
Theme is from Colour Create Challenge #67 pastels as well as Prairie Fairy Friday Oh So Spring.

Framed Card

My dear friend Terry sent me this picture last night. She is redoing her house a little bit with new curtains and little touches here and there.

I was flattered that she took a card I gave her last year and framed it to put in her den.

What a great idea! I often will buy frames from the second hand store and etch the glass or put a cricut cut in vinyl but this is another great idea. I was touched. :)

Penguin Treat Box

Hi All - the last thing we want to see is snow! But I bought a few patterns last night from My Scrap Chick and just had to make this cute penguin and it's treat box.
I had to hand cut all the pieces so sorry if it's not perfectly cut. (I do not have the cutting software)
The box is also a file that I hand cut and was super simple from My Scrap Chick.
I hand stamped little snow flakes from Stampin' Up.
I am entering this is Christmas Stamping All year long

Wooden Birdhouse altered

I bought this birdhouse at AC Moore, and decorated it with paint, Basic Grey paper and rhinestones from Michaels.
Lace is from JoAnns.
Stick Pins are from Making Memories that I bought months ago at Michael's clearance wall.
I bought another birdhouse last night at JoAnns that I'll be decorating in coordinating items as well - so make a set!
Spring will be here soon and want these on display in my window.

Stick pins

One night this week I sat with my beads and pins and created these little accent pieces.

I love each one as a little piece of art!
I have always been fascinated by the grouping of beads and not much of a jewelery maker but still manage to have a couple draws full!
I will be giving one of these sets (3 pins to a set) away to one of my dear followers who comments on this post!
I will pull the name Monday and that winner will have two days to get back to me or else I will pull another name.

Enjoy and good luck. Remember: followers only - comment and come back to see if you win!

Easter card and candle set

I made this as a gift for Easter.
The card stock is from SU as well as the swirl stamp.
The border punch is from Martha Stewart
The oval is a 1 1/4 x 2" oval punch.
Ribbon - I think from Michaels as well as the pearls.

The votive holder is 3" height and you take a 8 1/2 length piece of card stock and score at 2" 4" and 6" and 8". Punch the ovals so the light so through - I am sorry my pictures are not very good. But I think you get the gist. (Inside I used a battery operated tea light from Michael's)

I'll be entering this in a challenge or two when I find my listing.
Thanks for looking if you have any questions please let me know.
