Madison Mingle

Every Spring a group of Wisconsin TAC Angels organize a wonderful event called Madison Mingle. The event will draw 75 participants and every participant brings a "shoebox" project to be completed. What that means is that the end of the 3 day event you will go home with 75 completed projects!! It is a great way to make a bunch of demo samples.

Here is the project that I made for this year's event:

I call it "Thanks So Much for my ScorePal"

For this card I used DCWV cardstock blue #2. I scored the bottom with the Scor-Pal and then sanded the embossed lines with a sanding block. Since the cardstock that I used has a white core, the white shows through after sanding.

The stamp set that I used for this project is Pattern Sayings (new in the TAC Spring Supplement). I stamped "Thanks" on the white card stock, the same blue card stock, and green cardstock using Palette Noir ink. Then I cut out the Green T, a, and k. Then I cut out the Blue h, n, s. You cut them with some of the previous letter to the left on it. Then you glue the blue and green letters to the white cardstock starting with the "s" and working backwards. This creates a 3D effect as it raises the letters. After that is complete you stamp "so much" right below.

To add an interesting border to the sentiment block, I scored a 1/4" border with my Scor-Pal on the white cardstock.

Using your Crop-A-Dile you can punch 3 holes on the bottom right and set 3 eyelets. I used the eyelets from the Lilly Anna Hardware collection.

I hope you like my project. Madison Mingle is in two weeks and now I just have to prepare all of the materials for the 75 participants. I will post pictures of the others creations once I return.

Longing for Spring

With all of the cold and snow that we have had here this winter, we are longing for Spring!!! Anything spring would do right now!

Here are a few ATCs that reflect the thing I like about spring the best ... blooming flowers!

Think Spring
This ATC uses a retired TAC stamp set called mini tulips. I love how you can build your own tulips with this set. I also used tag tidbits on the tag and used a Cuttlebug die cut out for the slider. Used Palette L'Amore Red, Belle Rose, and Chartreuse inks. Ribbon is from Joann's $1 bins!

Thinking of You
This ATC uses one of my favorite flower sets in the new TAC catty. It's called Spring Flowers. Also used my Marvy scalloped punch for this as well as my Marvy circle punch. The "thinking of you" came from the TAC Squiggle Ladybugs ... I just love this font in this set! The card was stamped with Palette Cognac ink and then colored with Prisma pencils. I used odorless mineral spirits to blend in the colors as well.

Something's Fishy

The Spring/Summer TAC Catalog has a few "retro" sets in it this year. At first they really didn't appeal to me ... but they are definitely growing on me ... especially these fish.

Here's a few cards that I made with the Something's Fishy set.

I made this card into a valentine for my husband last month. I used my new Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. All of the fish were paper pieced with pink, white, and red card stock. "S" and "F" also paper pieced. Inside of the valentine said "since I'm hooked on you!"

This was a valentine for my 7 year old son. The inside said "I'd jump through hoops for you" ... and trust me there are days where I feel that's all that I'm doing. I used by bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder on this one.

This was for a swap that I did with a fellow angel Kerry. we were supposed to use one of our "new" sets ... with TAC, SU, or CTMH. I loved this card and the colors. These fish were once again paper pieced.
