My Hearts Pleasure


Retro Rubber Challenge #48

Good morning! We have a new challenge for you over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  Here is the inspiration for the challenge 

Here is what I created 

I used a Manila tag and distressed it with Tim Holtz vintage ink. Next I die cut the trees using the Sizzix thinlets and distressed with SU inks and painted the tree tops with a textured snow paste. I then cut the Stitched hills using the memory box thinlets and distressed then with SU inks as well and painted a snow line at the tops. For the the bottom layer I cut another Stitched hill and stamped the v bug using the Unity stamp set Oh Christmas Joy (released in Oct 2014) with momento black ink.  I colored the image in using my TH distress markers and then sponged the background with SU Soft Sky ink. To finish I dabbed some snow spots to create a falling snow effect.  I added the sentiment from the same set above the trees and then added some SU ribbon. 

Thank you so much for stopping today. 

Until next time 

Happy crafting 🙂

SIP Sketch Challenge #67

Good morning.  It’s Tuesday and I wanted to share our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. We have a fun sketch for you this week

Here is the card I created 

I started with a Basic Black card base and then a layer of Whister White followed with a layer of dsp with white ribbon around those two layers.  For the panel I used basic black and then whisper white which I stamped the Santa from the set The Jolliesr Time Of The Year and colored with my markers. To finish I stamped the sentiment from Tags Til Christmas on white and then using framelits cut it out and also cut out a black layer with a little larger one and glued those together and added where the ribbon pieces met together. 

Thank you for stopping by today!

Until next time 

Happy crafting 🙂


SIP Challenge #66 – Anything But A Card

Good morning. It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week is Anything But A Card. I love this challenge! 

One of my favorite things to make is mini albums so I choose to make a paperbag mini. 

The front and back covers are made from chipboard and the inside pages are small crafting paper bags. I bought a loose pack of paper from one of the Facebook groups and it didn’t have the covers so I’m not sure what the name of the Paperline is. I used all kinds of embellishments and twine throughout the album. Here are some pics of the inside pages

If anyone knows the name of this Paperline I would love to know so I can find some more. 

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my mini album. 

Until next time 

Happy crafting 🙂

SIP Challenge #64 – Clean & Simple

Good morning! It’s Tuesday and we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week it’s all about Clean and Simple

These seem to be the hardest cards for me to make. So for this challenge I wanted to use one of my new sets by Stampin Up called Wherever You Go. 

I started with a Whisper White card base and then took a another piece of white measuring 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 and using a small piece of adhesive placed it on my card front where I wanted it to be. I then took a couple pieces of washi tape and masked off just the edges of the card front to the left and right of the the center piece so that when I stamped the image it wouldn’t go all the way to the edges. Next I stamped the sun image using YoYo Yellow and then the bridge using Stazon black ink. Now I removed the washi tape and pulled the stamped piece up and added foam tape and placed it back down lining it up with the edges of the bridge on the card front. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the same set. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time 

Happy Crafting 🙂
