October 1st is Tomorrow!!!

and ... tomorrow is a HUGE HUGE day for me!!!
It is the first day of the month and the debut of the Stamp of the Month (for October - it's the Jingle Jolly set). I was chosen a little while ago to be the Stamp of the Month designer for October and I have been soooo patiently waiting to share my creations with my blog followers and all of the TAC fans that visit the TAC website.

More to come tomorrow!

Oh Nuts!!

Here is my 4th and final ATC for this week ....


I loved this squirrel that TAC made last year for a Stamp of the Month - infortunately he was just offered for a month and then he never returned! He is just adorable and so much fun to color. I colored him with my copics and sponged the edges of the card.

A week devoted to ATCs

I love making ATCs!
They are fast and fun to swap/trade with friends.
Do you know what an ATC is?
ATC stands for Artistic Trading Card.
The size of an ATC must be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". You can do just about anything to decorate and compose your ATC, and again the size is the one and only rule.
For the next couple of days I will share ATCs that I have recently made to swap.

Little Frankenstein

Trick or Treaters remains one of my all time FAVORITE Halloween Sets! I used the Frankenstein image and Hedgehog Halloween sentiment for this Halloween ATC swap.

I colored it using my copics!


More tomorrow!!!

Another Magazine to Check Out!

December 2010 Issue

If you see this issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts ... I would highly recommend picking it up.

1. I have a card in it on page 19. :)
2. Erica Falk-Huzar (fellow TAC demonstrator) has a wonderful and informative article in this issue about how to color with Copics and features TAC stamps ... it's some GREAT TAC publicity!

Happy Holiday - Red Head

Here is my card from that issue ... it features Holiday Boys which I colored with copics and the sentiment which is from Thinking of You. I included gems and ribbon and pop-dotted the main image.

Volume 19 - Now Available

The latest edition of Just Cards is now available and I have two cards in it! Yea! I submitted these quite a while ago and have not known when or if they would make it in.

Enjoy the Ride

This is made with the Bug of Fun set. I love popping the fenders on this set and created this card that way as well (although it doesn't photograph that way well). I pop-dotted the sentiment, added some black gems, and used a nestability as well.

My other card in the magazine can be seen HERE on my other blog.

Blog Hop - Post-It Note Holder

Welcome to this month's Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Wings!

Paper Wings is a great community site devoted to The Angel Company.
Today we are making any item other than a card
... and for my project I chose a post-it note holder.

I love this project for fast and easy little gifts!

I covered 2 chipboard coasters with Just like Dad paper by TAC. I then used my new Cinch to punch the holes and bind the wire. I used the Joy, Found frog on the front cover and a sentiment from Hoppy Everything. I then added a bunch of different coordinating ribbon and some white scrapper's floss to the rings for an extra decorative touch.

Here is the inside of the post-it note holder ... note the holes ... The Cinch makes round circle holes rather than the rectangles!

Here is my attempt to show you that I popped the top half of his body to appear as if he is hopping off the cover!


Please visit these other wonderful blogs to see a few more samples/ideas!

Small Things in Life

I loved this tree from the moment I laid eyes on it in the TAC Catalog. It is from the set called Joy, Found. I have been wanting to ink it up for a while. But one can't just have one tree ... I needed three!

I masked them and colored them with copics. I sponged the sky in and colored in the grass with copics too. I then paired it with the sentiment from Life is Short.

ENJOY and celebrate some small things TODAY!!!

Girl & Boy ATCs

I have always loved making ATCs and trading them.
They are fun and simple and fast!

Girl ATC

This one uses Spunky Sprite Girls and I basically stole everything from Emma's card that I did earlier. I paperpieced her dress and colored her with copics and added my famous copic grass.


I used Spunky Sprite Boys for this one and colored him with copics too. I added stickles to the bubbles.

Happy Birthday Emma!

Today is my niece's 2nd birthday. She is such a Cutie Patootie! Chase and I attended her birthday party this weekend!
Her big gift was a play kitchen from her Mom and Dad with all the fixings ... so to go with that I got her a shopping cart and a cute purse .... a girl's gotta shop for her groceries!!!

I Wanna Play

Every time I see these Sprite Girls I think of little Emma. So I used them for her card with the sentiment. I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of the image with copics. I added some flowers and bling and viola .. a cute Emma card!

So you wanna see the resemblance?

Here is Emma at her party!

And here is a toot for my brother! You guys think that my stuff is good?? It is absolutely nothing compared to the art that my brother does. Last year he did a huge mural of Emma for her birthday in the Obama "hope" style in red, white, and blue.

This year he did another painting of and for her but on a little smaller scale .....

Emma and her favorite things!

This is an awesome picture of Emma and her favorite things (Elmo, Minnie Mouse, Shamu, the Beatles, Curious George, Tom & Jerry, and Thomas the Train)

It again was the hit of the party for all of the grown-ups ... the hit for the kids was definitely the kitchen!

Happy Birthday Emma!

Hedgehog Birthday

Wagon Full of Cupcakes

I love the Hedgehog Happiness set (Level C set- Inspration Book). It comes with many different things to put in his wagon but I took the cupcake from Hello for All Seasons (Level B set - Serendipity) and placed those in there and masked them.

I colored the image with copics and added black gems to the wheels. I added a sentiment from Ordinary Greetings and then finished off the card with pink and brown cardstock.

Happy Haunting!

These images are from Spiders are Seen ... a new set in the soon to be released Fall magalogue. I paired them up with the Martha Stewart web punch (my fav!). The paper is from the retired TAC Halloween papers (also my fav - sad it's gone) ... and black gems (more of my favs!). I sponged the edges to give them a spookier look and pop-dotted the candleabra.

Clowning Around

I love this little dog clown from the Delightfully Spooky set. Last weekend at a local Halloween store my son was trying on clown wigs and tried on a rainbow hair one. I thought how perfect that would be on that dog. LOL! Always thinking about stamps!

I colored him with my copics. I added some green and orange papers and a bunch of my black gems and viola! The cutest dog dressed as a clown!!
