Here is my card for the SCS Featured Stamper from a week ago!  I love the FS challenges because it gives me a chance to browse through galleries that I wouldn’t normally have looked at! We all learn so much from each other!  This really is a group sport!! 🙂
You can find Kathy C’s card here.

This is my version!


This Thomas Kinkade stamp is called Cobblestone Bridge.  You can see the bridge just above the Thinking Of You.

I started with a Chocolate Chip card base measuring 5-1/2" square.
I stamped the TK image in Timber Brown StazOn onto Whisper White card stock.  I layered those images onto Bashful Blue Card Stock.  I used ribbon to highlight the borders of the images.  The sentiment was stamped also in Timber Brown and the scalloped rectangle was cut using my Nestabilites.  I layered that onto Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue.  I used my Slit punch to add the tabs and inserted blue brads.

Until Next Time…Happy Creating!!!  Cruise through a SCS gallery and leave a comment!  Make someone’s day!

So Very Kinkade…

Fs41_so_very_kinkade_mr I’m so sorry that the lighting is terrible for this picture!  When it’s dark and cloudy outside, it won’t even help to try to take the picture in natural light!

I’m finally getting around to completing some of the challenges for this past week.  This one is for the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS.  This week’s FS was Shelly (Papermoon04).  She does beautiful work.  I also appreciate her because she takes the time to comment on everyone elses cards too!  Here is the card that I cased of hers. 

My color choices for this card are Elegant Eggplant and Cool Caribbean. It looks like black, but it’s really eggplant.  Again, sorry for the lighting issues!  I stamped my background stamp called Print Patter onto the Cool Caribbean card stock with CC ink.  I used my Giga scalloped oval punch and punched the oval out of that top layer.  The Thomas Kinkade stamp is stamped in eggplant onto shimmery white card stock.  I placed that image under the CC layer.  I did a little doodling around the scallop to add a little focal point to the image.  I added the photo corners and ribbon and used a little white gel pen to complete the card.

Until Next Time…Happy Creating!!!

Scalloped Kinkade…

Not much time for stamping this week!  I started out the week cleaning out my store room.  I was going to take pictures and post them, but that would have been embarrassing!!  I can’t believe how bad it was!  I’m not quite done, but decided I needed to stamp something tonight.  I actually already had this imaged stamped, so I just had to assemble the card.  Of course when I started I had no idea what I was going to do!  That always takes the most time!


The cottage was stamped in Purely Pomegranate and trimmed down.  I mounted that on another piece of white for the border.  The black card base is 5"x5".  I made the scallops using my slit punch and added brads and ribbon.  The verse "too much of a good thing is a good thing" is from the new level 3 hostess set from SU which will be available Jan 1st.  I stamped that in silver and embossed it with Silver EP.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow!

Another Kinkade….

This card was completed for this week’s color challenge on SCS.  The colors this week are Purely Pomegranate (rose red), Kraft (creamy caramel or sahara sand), and Whisper White.  I added the black for a little depth!


The black also helps tie the whole thing together.  Especially with the black brads and ribbon.  Most of the DP is covered but it kind of has a very similar pattern on it as the ribbon.
I chose to use creamy caramel because I don’t have any of the Kraft cardstock.  The DP is by Daisy D’s and it’s called Red Holly.
You can find the Thomas Kinkade stamps at CHF.

Until Next Time….Happy Creating!!!

I LOVE these Kinkaid stamps!  I wish I could afford more of them!  For this card I really wanted to capture the sparkly snow.  Especially at night when the moonlight is reflecting off of the snow!  That’s always so beautiful!  You may have to click on the picture to see the larger view.


This is the first card that I’ve sewn on! Boy was that fun!! I don’t
have a small sewing machine and I didn’t want to drag mine out of the
store room and set it up! Today I finally did!!

I completed this inage
in a couple of steps. First I stamped the image with Navy Craft ink
onto acetate. I embossed the image with SU Iridescent Ice Ep. Then I
covered the whole image with White Craft ink and embossed it again with
SU Iridescent Ice Ep. I wanted the whole thing to sparkle, including
the white areas. It’s hard to have snow with no sparkle!!! I mounted
that image onto shimmery white card stock and layered that onto navy.

Winter Kinkade…SC146

Here is my card for last week’s SCS sketch challenge.  I’m a little behind on the challenges but got a chance to stamp today.  My son had another Dr. appt today and went to school this afternoon. 
The sketch is turned onto it’s side because the stamp I wanted to use laid the wrong way!


Cornish Heritage Farms is who makes the Thomas Kinkade stamps.  They had another release last week but I haven’t the $$ to get any right now!  I will keep my eye on them though!!
I stamped the image on very vanilla cardstock with Black StazOn ink.  I used my SU markers to color the image.  I tried not to color it too solid but wanted it to look a little sketchy.  The colors I used were: Barely Banana, Creamy Caramel, Ruby Red, Bordering Blue, and Mellow Moss.
The DP paper I used is from Basic Grey.  The syle is called Fruitcake.  I buy mine at Archiver’s.
The card base is Chocolate Chip!  I sponged around the image with ruby red.

Until Next Time….Happy Creating!!!
