Here is a Christmas tin I made for a little girl for Christmas. I wanted her to have a variety of paper dolls with different hair colors and bathing suits. I stamped several outfits on designer paper and cut them out. I left room for her to pick some clothes of her choice. I used velcro to put them in the tin for storage. Thin magnets should work well, too. I thought tin would be very convenient for storing the clothes and the dolls.
These paper dolls will be in the Mark's Finest Paper store next week. We will also have a blog hop next week so be sure and join us.
Thanks, for stopping by today and be sure and let me know what you think of the paper dolls.
Speedy Fox and Friends theme for this week's challenge is to make a New Years card.
I use the new set by Mark's Finest Papercalled "New Years". I colored the image with copics.
I thought a New Years card definitely needed to be "blinged up" so I added some gems and ribbon with silver cording. The paper is by Color Bok.
As always, we hope you will join us for the challenge. Thanks, for stopping by today.
The Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge is all about cookie jars this week. I really thought I was going to
do the pink and blue cookie jar because I have that same cookie jar. When I was getting ready to look for paper for it, I switched and went with the Campbell's Soup cookie jar. I used Mark's Finest Paper
stamps- Celebrate Big, Country Charm and Flaps my Wattles. The sentiment is computer generated.
Come on over to Speedy TV and join us for this challenge. You will find the inspiration pictures below.
TodaySpeedy Foxhas a challenge for a birthday card, but it must have a look of Christmas to it. Now I have just the perfect birthday card for someone who has a December birthday. I wanted to make it so it could be for a man or a woman so I decided that black would be a perfect color for it. I used the Mark's Finest Paperstamps "Christmas Cardinal" and "Pansy Riot".
The Speedy TV Inspiration challenge this week was another one that I really liked, I think it is because I love those vintage "glampers" inside and out. I used Stampin' Up paper. The Mark's Finest Paperstamp I used is called "Huge Blooms". I stamped it direct to my paper and fussy cut it. I took a Sharpie Poster painter and added the white to make the flower pop. I learned this trick from Angela Bode, a Sister designer for MFP. I think she used a different type of white pen. I need to find out, my Sharpie kept fading into the paper and I had to keep adding more white. Below you will find the Inspiration pictures, I think you will be able to pick out the one I was inspired by.
Todays Splitcoast Stampers TLC challenge is to use clear embossing on dark paper with clearly dramtic results. The CAS challenge is to bling it up so I combined the challenges. I used a ODBD stamp that a friend sent me for my BD. I really love this Christmas collage stamp.
Hope you are having a great day. Thanks, for stopping by.
TheSpeedy Fox and Friendschallenge for today is to use three designer papers on our projects.
I needed two tags so I made this for this challenge. I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamp sets called
"Holly Jolly" and "Holiday Tag". For the berries, I used sequins and added some ribbon to complete my tags.
I decided to recycle a paper bag for my wrapping paper. Here is the package with the bag I stamped to match the tag.
Be sure and come on over to the blog and join us for the challenge. Thanks, for stopping by today.
I have had a blast making my card for the Speedy TV Inspiration challenge his week. We got our inspiration from some of the cutest glampers. Have you read about the Glamper craze? People are buying retro campers/travel trailers and giving them a face lift. I have see so many cute ones. When I first heard of this, I thought it was silly, but it sure has grown on me. I think it would be a fun thing to do. I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamps "Mountain Selections" and "Scenic Selections" on my card. I cute the little glamper with a Silhouette. Around the fence and the "Cottage Cutz" trees I added a little Spanish Moss. Below you will find the inspiration pictures.
What do you think of these cute glampers? There are a lot of cuter ones out there, too. I just thought these would be fun colors to work with.
I want you to feel free to come on over to Speedy TV Inspiration challenge and join us for the fun this week. See you there.
This week the challenge for theCCEE Stampers is to make a card with a tree. We are using the song "Oh Christmas Tree" for our inspiration. I chose this Squiggleflyimage called "Stick Tree" by Pamela Lehto for my tree.
This will be the CCEE Stampers last challenge for 2013. We will be back with another challenge on January 2nd.
Here is a card I made for the Squigglefly challenge this week. I made it a little early so I could enter it in the Ways to Use It and the Free 4 all challenge over at Splitcoast stamping. Squigglefly ask us to make a card with a Christmas image or Christmas paper. I used the Squigglefly image called
"Shy Bear - Candle Bear" by Lynne Stansbery. If you have never colored one of Lynne's images, you don't know what you are missing. I love her images, not only are they cute, she makes them easy to color. Come on down to the blog and join us for the challenge. This will encourage you to make another Christmas card on your list.
Wow, it is Saturday, already, that means it is time for another Speedy Fox and Friends challenge.
Today we are making cards with the theme of a Blue Christmas. I used a Mark's Finest Paper mini "tree" set. I sponged the trees in Island Indigo on white paper. I sponged bashful blue ink for the sky around them. I added some sculpting paste on the trees for snow. The lace was white, but I sponged it blue to match my trees and added pearls. I used Silver, Island Indigo and white paper. The white paper was embossed with snowflakes. I used a silver border below the trees.
Here is the first card I made with the new stamp set debuting in the Mark's Finest Paper Store this week called " Butterfly Essence". I stamped the image in gold on black paper and then added some red ink which gave it a bronze color.
This card was gold embossed on black paper and then colored in with Sparkling H20's. I changed the color of my ribbon by using a teal ink pad. My sweet little "Colby Jane", my youngest Yorkie, helped me with this. I dropped the bow and then realized it was gone. Colby had stole the bow and ran upstairs with it. Needless to say she had a little teal mouth. I let my bow dry and found that it was now lighter than my ribbon. I decided to wet the ribbon under the faucet to try to make it match better. The shale button was colored with a copic marker and then I added some gold around the edge.
The CCEE Stampers challenge this week has a theme this week - "Twas the Night Before Christmas".
I used the Stampin Up stamp set "Stitched Stocking" for my lone hung stocking. I used Pool Party ink. I used a snow embossing folder which is very suitable for the weather they are predicting us to have tomorrow. Brrrr-I am so not ready for snow and ice.
Be sure and stop by the CCEE Stampers blog to see what the other team members have made and also to join us for the challenge.
The challenge over at the Speedy TV Inspiration challenge is all about unusually cute chicken coops. I personally think they would have made some really neat play houses for the kids, but I suppose there were special chickens who needed to be housed in them ~smile~ I chose the pink chicken coop and how funny that I used a rabbit instead of a chicken on my card. I used the MFP "Garden Bunny" stamp set. Below you will find the pictures of the inspiration pictures.
Here is a card made with one of the new sets that is being showcased this week called
"Swallowtail". Be sure to stop by theMFP blog to see what the design team has come up with and join in the blog hop.
The challenge for theSpeedy Fox and Friends blog is to make a purple Christmas card. I used the Marks Finest Paper stamps called "Wise Men", a mini set. I used purple and gold embossing powder. Be sure and come over to theMFP blog and join us for the challenge.
This week theSpeedy TV Inspiration Challengehas some cool pictures of tattoo's for the inspiration piece. For my card, I chose to use the Mark's Finest Paper Santa image from the "Holly Jolly" stamp set. The sentiment is from "Your an Angel". I used the sketch from the CCEE Stampers challenge.
Below you will find the inspiration pictures:
I hope you will join us for the Speedy TV Inspiration challenge this week. Thank you, for stopping by.
Today over at theSquiggleflyblog the challenge is to use banners. I chose theSquigglefly image called "5 Golden Rings"by Pamela Lehto. I hope you will come over to theSquiggle blog and join us for the challenge.
This week the CCEE Stamperschallenge is to make a card with either dry or wet embossing. I used green and silver paper, to go along with Speedy Fox and Friends them of a green Christmas, on my Easel card. I chose to use the Mark's Finest Papernew stamp set called "A Chill in the Air". I love primitive stamps so I gave this stamp a Primitive look. I stamped the image once and without reinking, I stamped it beside the first image to make the branch look really full. I added some white paint to the limb for my snow. I used a copic marker to make the red berries. The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from another Mark's Finest Paper stamp set. In our blog hop this week, Janine used ornaments on her tree branch and I thought that was a great idea so I added ornaments also.
Thanks, for stopping by today and I hope to see you over at Speedy Fox and Friendsand the CCEE Stampersblog joining us for the challenge. If you can't join. at least come by and see what the other team members made. You might get a really neat idea for your Christmas cards.
The Speedy TV Inspiration challengetheme for this week is "At the Hop". I really had fun with this one. I used a background stamp by Mark's Finest Paper called "Pocket Watches". I decided on this one when I thought of the old rock and roll song "Rock around the Clock". Who can think of a sock hop and not think of a cute poodle skirt. I used the Silhouette to cut out the outfit and the 45 record. I finished up by using the Mark's Finest Paperstamp set "You've got Style". I hope you have enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed making it. I hope you will come and join us for the challenge.
Today over at Speedy Fox and Friends, we have been challenged to make a red Christmas card.
I chose to use the Mark's Finest PaperChristmas cardinal stamp set. I used a Spellbinder die to make the frame, did dry embossing on the white card stock and tied it up with Silver cording. I hope you can come over to the blog and see what the other team members made. We would also like for you to join us for the challenge.
Cindy is giving the challenges this month and this week she has challenged us to do stitching. It can be real stitching or faux. I used a Mark's Finest Paper stamp set called "I am Thankful". When you think about, we can all find something to be thankful for just like this cute little scarecrow.
I hope you will find some time to join us for the challenge. Thanks, for stopping by today.
Rhonda over at theSquigglefly bloghas challenged us to make a card with polkadots. I really like the pink polkadots on the kraft paper and it went so well with this image I have colored. I love this Squigglefly image by Lynne Stansbery called "Am I having what yet?"
The Speedy Fox challenge this week is "White Christmas". I kept my card all white, but wanted to add some silver embossing to give it some pizzazz. I used the stamp set "Scenic Selections" for the trees.
