My last Gel A Tins post

26 Apr

This is a bittersweet post.  My term is up this month with Gel A Tins stamps and I completely missed the Team Call for the next term

I have had a ton of fun creating with these adorable stamps.

I have to say my favorite thing about Gel A Tins is the fact they come in this wonderful Tin.

Storage is pretty easy when your stamps come in their own storage system.

Today I am using the set called  Sugar & Spice.

I am also using the Mojo Monday Sketch # 238.

Here is my card for today:)

I looked at the sketch and knew that I wanted to try using my Mini Polaroid die for this card.

It a very simple color scheme and I think it is a fun variation of the Mojo Monday sketch.

Just using white embossing powder, I was able to keep the black and white theme for the card.

But there is never a problem with a splash of pink, right?

So there you have it:  My last card for the wonderful and generous people over at Gel A Tins stamps.

I have had a lot of fun here and hope that you have enjoyed the things I have shared.

A “Dreamy” Card

25 Apr
Hello and happy Wednesday to everyone!!  Today I have a card of all cards to share today!
I am using this awesome sketch that Mojo Monday has up.  Sketch # 238.

 

I am using the set called Dream a Little Dream.
I don’t know if you can really see all the detail in this card but…
I have just started learning some new techniques in one of Christy Tomlinson’s online classes.
Although I do not have a lot (if any) of the supplies she uses, I improvised on this card.
Also, I made the card out of a piece of transparency paper, so it is really a unique card!
So there you have it…my attempt to WOW you all today!!  How did I do?
I had such a fun time making this card and I hope you enjoyed my post today.

Gel A Tins Stamps – Elefuntastic Card

12 Apr
Hello everyone..
I am here with a cute card today.  I am using Mojo Monday’s Sketch #236
Here is the sketch.
I turned the sketch and used it like this:
I am using the set called:
Here is my version of the sketch from above.
It think this is such a sweet set. There are so many possibilities since there are so many stamps.
I took one of the largest elephants and embossed it with a glitter embossing powder.  It created a nice effect for the background.
I am using all MOMENTA paper products.
All of these wild prints are from a paper pack called:
I also used some ABC stickers from a Momenta 12 x 12 Super Paper Pad.  If you don’t have a phrase that matches your stamps, make one up!  That’s what I always do!
I hope you have enjoyed my sketch tweak today!  Do you use sketches?  I am new to using them but I am hooked!
What sketch sites you do like?
I would love to hear what you have to say.

Springtime Card

30 Mar
I had a ton of fun making this sweet card.
I am using Mojo Monday’s sketch #234.
As usual, I have used a ton of dies and Authenticate Paper’s Delightful Collection.
I started by using the largest egg in the NESTING EGGS and decorated it with the following dies:
I then used the Spring Basket 1 and Darling Daisies to create the focal point of the card.
I had found the phrase I wanted to use first, so that is how I decided what to put IN the basket.
The bunny is the perfect touch for this Springtime card.
I love the colors and the dies were such fun to work with on this project.
I hope you have enjoyed my post.  Have a great weekend, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

I Heart {ippity} New Stamps!!!

14 Mar

I have a beauty for you today.  Plus I have an idea for you try out while we are at it!

I am using MOJO MONDAY’S SKETCH #232

I am also super excited to say that I was one of the winners for Mojo Monday’s Sketch #231!

 It was my first time even entering one of their sketch challenges and you can imgaine my surprise when I saw I was one of the winners! I am sooo excited!!

I am using a brand new set called:

Be Brave…Branch Out

Here is my version of the sketch.

Now the new thing I tried on this card, was to take that pin and after I had machine gathered my twill tape, I ran the pin through the center of the tape,

Next time, I will slip the machine gathering and just gather it on the pin and save some time!

If you like my color and paper palette, I have Authentique Paper to thanks for that.  I have used paper from different lines but I love how I can mix and match and still have it all blend perfectly.

I will be entering this in Mojo Monday’s Challenge # 232.

I hope you enjoyed my idea, this would also work on certain ribbons, so I would love to hear if you try this out!  Let me know.

Fun with Cheery Lynn Designs New Easter Dies

9 Mar
We are getting ready to have our new release party soon, but thought you might like to see what is in store for you.
I am using a TON of dies today.
I am also using a sketch from Mojo Monday.
You can go and check out the EASTER NEW RELEASE dies HERE.
I have used the following NEW EASTER DIES:
 Even though these are EASTER dies, look what you can make…a hot air balloon!
 I used the FRENCH PASTRY DOILY & ANGEL WING to go along with our current challenge which is DOILIES.  You can read about the challenge here.
Other dies I used are:
LACE CORNER DECO F – for the leaves on my flowers on the basket.
DANCING DOILY LACE BORDER – the white paper lace.
DOTTIES RIC RAC – the lighter brown ric rac piece.
FLOWER CHAIN BORDER – flowers on the basket and on the yellow border chain with flowers.
BLACK EYED SUSANS – the embossing plate for the brown background paper.
I am pretty sure that is all the dies used.  I have used ECHO PARK’S paper called THIS & THAT, such a gorgeous line!
By now you should know that I love thinking of unusual things to do with shapes meant for other things.  The reason I do this?  I love to show you just how much you can do with dies and supplies if you just think…outside the “Easter basket!”
I hope you have enjoyed my post today..I had a ton of fun making this!
Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by.
