Get warm by the fire TSSC 45

Well Thanksgiving went great I love spending time with my family. My oldest daughter is have a great time in North Carolina.

Here is the Monday Lunch Time Sketch this week from the Techo StamperHere what I came up with from the sketch.
I cut the ovals out with my Creative Memories cutters. I used SUInk Aspen Stamp Set for the fire place and the Young lady warming by the fire. I colored them in using my Copic Markers and I used Spica pens on the fire to give it a bit of twinkle. The Paper is from K and Company. This card really makes me wish I had a fire place in my house. The Saying is from SUInk Holiday Sentiments Set. The last thing I added was the eyelets to the three corners to finish it off.

This Wednesday challenge at SUInk was to make a Christmas card using non tradional Christmas colors. I love purples so I just had to use purple in my card and this is what I came up with for this weeks Whatchadoin Wednesday Challenge

I started with purple card stock and found the patterned paper by Creative Memories and cut it into strips. I inked around the edges using Pearlescent Purple Brilliance. I cut out my ovel and stamped the trees on it from SUInk Santa's Little Helpers. I colored the trees in using my Copic markers. The Happy Holidays is from SUInks Holiday Sentiment set. Its stamped with Versa Magic Pink Petunia and I inked the edge of the ovel with it also. The Flower Rain Drops are from Fiskers and I added Heidi Swapp Bling to the card. I really liked how it turned out. To me its still very Christmasie with out the red and green.

Cookies and Wreaths, Yummy Christmas Treats

OH my goodness I can't believe that Thanksgiving is this week already it seems like this year has flown by. This year my parents are taking my oldest with them to North Carolina to see my Brother and Sister in Law. There son is the same age as our daughter and there bestest buds and they miss each other a lot.

Well on to the crafting.

I had a lot of fun making this wreath. First I cut card stock and pattered paper I use Reminisces in to 1 x 5 inch strips. I used a hot glue gun to loop them over. (hot glues dries a whole lot faster) I then hot glued them on to a Styrofoam wreath in 4 rows. I cut out the the snowflakes and circles using the Slice. I used SUInk stamp sets Snow Day and Holiday Sentiments to stamp the images. I colored them in with Copic and Spica to color them in. I added Iced Stickles to them. On the Merry Christmas circle I made 1/4 x 4 inch strips and looped them behind.

What is Chrismas with out cookies. I always love getting the pre mixed cookie jars. I love how they look and so easy to make cookies with. Well when I got Kiss the Cook stamp set from SUInk that was the first thing I thought of.
I stamped the images on cardstock and colored them in with Copics and Spica. Yes I just got the Spica pens too. They are made by Copics and are glitter pens, they are wonderful to work with. Then I cut the images out and put them on the tag. The letters are by Making Memories.
On the back of the tag are the mixing and cooking dirctions. I made a strip for the botton I had to put the cute little stamps from the set on the tag also. I used my Cropadile to put an eyelet in the tag and put in on the ribbon around the neck of the jar.
For the top I cut out the circles with the Slice. Stamped the cookie sheet on there. The Warm Greetings was 1 stamp but being their clear stamps I cut the words apart and put them on the stamp block.

Joyful Memories 2S4U Challenge

I have been keeping up with this blog for a few weeks and this is the first time I have taken part in one of there challenges, make sure you check out 2 Sketches 4 You. Well I wanted my card to look like something you pulled out of your Grandmas drawer and its been sitting in there for years and years. The stamp is by Crafty Secrets from there Sweet Kids Set. I colored it in with Copic Markers and added some Stickles to the snow on the trees and ground. Then I took distressing ink over the top of it. I mated the image on Star Dream paper and Best Creation paper. The ribbon was a cream color so I took Tattered Angels Forrest Green Glimmer Mist and sprayed it to change the color. The Joy Memories cut also by Crafty Secrets was the prefect title for this card I distressed and Stickled that also. I tore and folded just a bit of the corners of the mulberry paper.

Over at a wonderful blog I found call I{heart}2stamp They had a "Sketch For You To Try Saturday" (AKA SFYTT) Below is the sketch. Make sure you check out her blog she is very talented.

Well of course I had to use the new SUInk Deer Ol Santa stamp set that I had just gotten. I was going though my stackes (yes I said stackes) of paper looking for just that right peice and I found this wonderful striped paper by K & COmpany and on the back side it was a wonderful green with snowflakes. I had the perfect shade of pink Coordinates CS to go with it and some CS from Archives that was the the perfet green. I love the Rendeer that are on the stamp set. And the cozy house.
I stamp all the images on Bazzills CS and cut the circle out with Creative Memories Cutting System. I colored every thing in with Copic Markers I used Stickles on the snow and on the Pick Rendeer Rains. On the Green Rains I used Glitter from DoodleBug. I ripped the Pink Coordinates CS to let the inner core show just a bit.

The First Thanksgiving (my hubby thinks I have way too Much time on my hands)

Well this whole little project started when I found this post on Split Coast Stampers on how to make a Mayflower ship. You can see the post HERE I though oh I can make that and use the SUInk stamps and make little people around it.

Well I made the ship and wanted it bigger. So I scanned it into the Pazzles and made some changes to it and in larged it. I used distressing ink on it to try to make it look more really. I made the sail and thought it was a good place for the Boat stamp and I used Distressing Ink on that also. Then I made the Stamp the Pilgrims and Indians and thought oh look at the wonderful food stamps that I'm not using.

So I was trying to figure out how to make a table outta paper for the food to set on. Well what I came up with was covering a empty cigarette pack with paper and I used wooden kabob holders for the legs I just cut them done and used some distress ink on them and the the table top . So I stamp the rest of the images and cut them out I stamped some of them twice so I could layer them. I made bases for all the items just folded about a 1/4 strip of paper in a triangle to stand them all.

Supplies Used
Stamps: SUInk Bountiful Harvest, Leaf it to Me, and Giving Thanks
Ink: Ranger Adirondack in Pitch Black, Espresso and Sunset Orange. SUInk in Rustic. Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade, Antique Linen,Tea Dye, and Vintage Photo
Pens and Markers: Copic, Creative Memories, Marvy LePlume II

I know its now Thursday, well probably when I get this post all done it will be Friday. Buts my two year old decieded to stay up till midnight last night well shes doing it again tonight. But any way on to the card.

Well I was cruising though blogs the other day and saw a card with a accordian fold and thought it would be perfet for this challenge. Of course I had to modify it a bit. There folds where all the same size. I did 2,1 1/2, 1, and 1/2 fold on a 10 x 5 1/2 in. peice of paper. I used the Mini Score It for making my score lines. This is what I came up with.

Here the card is all folded up and it will still fit in an A2 envelope

Here's a side view so you can see how I step down folded the scoring on the folds.

I used SUInk Bountiful Harvest and Leaf it to Me stamp Sets. I first stamped the row of corn stocks in a row. Then I stamped the rest of the images. I colored them all in with Copic Markers. The cut them all out with a scissors and glue them on the paper. the corn stock row I did add some stocks with pop dots to add some demention and also I stamped the Turkey twice and layered him also.

Well I hope you enjoy checking it out I sure did have a alot of fun creating it. If you havn't checked out SUInk stamps you can go to there web site HERE. They just came out with some really cute winter and Christmas Sets that I can't wait to order. Hopefully next week I will be able too.
