Faux Tile Poinsettia Card

Hello All!
Just a quick post today to show you the card I made for a Split Coast Stampers challenge.
The challenge #TLC301 is to make a card with a faux tile background but I didn't pay attention to the "background" part. LOL! I am going to share it anyhow because it was a very fun project.

That beautiful stamp is from I Brake For Stamps and it is called "Happy Holidays Poinsettia".


The papers are all from The Paper Temptress and are: Heavenly White, Brown Bag, and Antique Gold.
The beautiful ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon's  Gold Swirls.
That pretty brad is Creative Charm's White Vintage Marble brad that I colored with a Copic to get the color I wanted.
The image is watercolored then sponged around the "tile" edges


Thanks so much for dropping by!

RRR and CC Duel Design Team Posting + Tutorial. Please Check It Out! ;)

Hello!
Thanks for dropping by!
I had 2 different design teams to post for today and instead of doing them separately and having one get lost in the shuffle, I am doing them together!
These projects incorporate ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and embellishments from Creative Charms.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Have you ever hesitated on buying Creative Charm's seasonal themed "Kit of the Month" kits because it is so close to whatever holiday, that you are afraid you wouldn't be able to use it?
Well don't be! They are such a great deal and the majority of the items in the kit will work wonderfully all year long!
Here are a couple of examples of some projects that I used their November "Fabulous Fall" kit on.
Please note the non-Fall looks.  ;)


On this clean and simple card, I just used white cardstock, a piece of Really Reasonable Ribbon's  gorgeous Green Glitz ribbon, some flowers and a beautiful Light Green Vintage Jewel to add that perfect finishing touch.


These are some notebooks that I made for Christmas gifts using some Brown Vintage Poppies for the focal point...again from the Fall kit.


That beautifully sparkling ribbon is Black Sparkle Velvet from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


Here is a quick video that I have prepared showing one way to be frugal with your ribbon.

I would absolutely love a comment from you, so I will know who all took the time to come visit!

My Hand-drawn English Bulldog Christmas Card ~ Week 2 as a GDT for the Paper Take Weekly challenge.

Hello All!
This is week 2 to for my Guest Designer Spot over at Paper Take Weekly.
The Challenge this time is "Cut It Out!"
They want you to use die cuts, punches, fussy cutting, etc.
How easy is that!?!

For my card this week I didn't use a stamp. I drew a picture of my dog Zoey to use for some family card exchanges. Isn't she a sweet little thing?  ;)


I love using my original artwork instead of stamps. I just don't often have the time to do it.


The papers are from Bazzill and The Debbie Mumm Harvest and Holiday stack.
I used assorted Nestabilities and the holly was punched to qualify it for this weeks challenge sample.
The berries are white half pearls that I colored with a red Copic marker.
I did the sentiment on the computer with Adobe Illustrator.

Thanks so much for dropping by! I hope to see one of your creations over at PTW this week.
Come on....ya know ya want to!  ;)

Hugs,
True :D

A Christmas Ornament For My Son and FDIL

Hello All!
My family has had a tradition of collecting dated ornaments for each year.  I started collecting 29 years ago with one that said "Our First Christmas Together 1981". When my son was born in "85", I started buying two. One for our tree and one to give him when he grew up. We put a lot of thought into it and try to find ornaments that have something to do with an event from that year. Some examples are:
"82" Our First Home ~ a key
"85" Baby's First Year ~ a rocking horse
"01" A snowman snow globe ornament from Colorado vacation when we went to "The North Pole" ;)
"03" A Harley motorcycle ornament ~ the year we bought our 100 Anniversary Heritage bike.
"04" A Graduation Cap ~ The year our baby graduated high school and started college.
"06" A beautifully glittered and adorned snowflake double starfish ornament that I was lucky enough to find in July in Hawaii on our 25th anniversary.
This year I am looking for an English Bulldog since it is our Zoey's first Christmas with us.
At first we used a lot of ball ornaments to fill in the tree but as our collection grows, there are fewer and fewer balls.
Our tree is quite eclectic but every ornament has a special place in our hearts. :)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I made this Christmas ornament for my son Kurt and future daughter-in-law Kristin. It is dated on the back with a special sentiment).
I know, I know.... the stamp is not meant to be a Christmas image but since they are in love (heart) and they have a new home (key) I thought it works great


The image is from I Brake For Stamps and is called "Key To My Heart" and it's only $2.85!!!!
It is going to be a great image for Valentine's Day too!
If you head off to buy it for yourself, please remember to use my
discount code SAVE10TRUE
to save 10% on your entire order!

I used Papertrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock and a new technique that I learned from Merilynn's W.I.S.H. video tutorial . I used tan, brown and olive Tombow markers with this technique to give the paper an antique look. I then sponged on some antique gold and some doodles around the edge with gold and silver markers.


I hand wrote the sentiment because it is a keepsake. They will have something with my handwriting when I am gone. I know I sure cherish the cards and recipes that I hung onto from my grandmothers because their handwriting is on them.



The Red Leather and Antique Gold designer papers are from The Paper Studio and I bought them @ Hobby Lobby.
I used Spellbinders Eyelet Circles and Eyelet Squares plus their circle Nestabilities dies.
The metal key is from my stash back when I thought it was a great idea to take everything out of the packages to organize.
Well we all know that is a bad idea when you start blogging and want to give details! 
How many of you have done the same thing and regretted it? I can't be the only one!  ;) LOL!

I hope you like my creation. I would love to hear what is your favorite detail on it!
Thanks and hugs,
True :D

Quick Thanksgiving Napkin Ring With my "Autumn Blessings" digi

Hello and HaPpY MoNdAy!!!

I needed to find some napkin rings to match my new tablecloth and napkins for Thanksgiving. Didn't find any I liked and being the crafter that I am...I made them!
They whipped up so fast and easy that I will probably start making napkin rings for all of my parties!

I started with the "Autumn Blessings" digi stamp that I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps.

Don't forget to add the free digi of the month to your cart while you are there.
It's illustrated by the awesome Laurie Wilson.

You just can't beat 2 sets for $2.50!!! ;)

The wonderful thing about digis is you can resize them to however big or small you need. I needed them to fit inside Clear Dollar Stamp's new "Designer Labels" die.


I used 6" by 2 3/8" pieces of K&Co "Fall Leaves" paper and some Bazzill "Clover Swiss Dots" to make a band. I then punched holes in the label to run a piece of Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Moss Swirls" ribbon through.
I added some silk Fall leaves from the floral department of Hobby Lobby and the finishing touch is that beautiful "Fall Medley" leaf shaped gem from Creative Charm's November "Fabulous Fall" Kit of The Month.

By the way...There has been such a demand for Creative Charm's "Falling For Fall"  Deal of the Month that Midori has released it a week early!

You get 128 Pieces for $6.99 (Regular $18.43)

My First Card as an "I Brake For Stamps" Full Time DT Member

Hello All!
A while back, I guest DT'ed for I Brake For Stamps and loved their images! Della asked then if I would like to be a full time DT but with my full time job and other design team responsibilities, there was just not enough time. Yet another silver lining to getting laid off is...now I have time!
This is my first official post as a "real" I Brake For Stamps designer!
I got to go shopping for rubber and picked so many awesome stamps that it was hard to decide which to do first. I also just received my latest Really Reasonable Ribbon DT package and in it were these amazing Purple and Green Glitz Ribbons that I just couldn't wait to play with, so I picked the "Lovely Fairy" image to match the ribbons. I love killing two birds with one stone! Don't you? ;)  Tehehehe!
Here is the result....

Remember, you can click on any picture to enlarge!
Here is a close up of that beautiful Green Glitz ribbon that I adorned with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I bought the glittery papers at Hobby Lobby and they are made by The Paper Studio.
