Stamping on Metal

My Twisted Sistah’s challenge this past Friday was to make a card with stamped metal.  I didn’t feel like cutting up a can for this as I’ve done in the past, so I stamped on a mini oval metal frame that I had.   I used Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps, you know, those tiny little peg stamps?  I love them! If  you want some lovely tutorials on how to use these mini stamps have a look at their blog Tapestry Stamp Techniques. The papers are Basic Grey Blush, and  basic black.  I used Staz On Teal, and Black Cherry to stamp on the metal, and basic black for the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!  Summer by the Sea.  The oval punches are also from Stampin’ Up!. Thanks for stopping in today, my friends!!  I have just taken a look at my hit counter today and I am almost at 100,000 visits!!! Can you believe that?? I can’t!!  I think there will have to be some blog candy soon to celebrate!!! Have a creative day!

Inspired by an Artist

Hi!  The card I have to share with you today was inspired by Glenda Mosher’s art.  She is not only a stamper, but an artist as well! I really admire her talent and her lovely paintings!  You can see them for yourself  on her blog.  Glenda’s art was featured as the inspiration challenge choice for this week.  I made two pieces for this challenge!   The first is a card inspired by her Tiger Lily painting.  The second is a little different!  It’s a 1 inch square  “painting”.  I used Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps for the flowers and stems/leaves, and I sponged in the sky, then used a pin to scratch out white areas to highlight.   I sealed it with Crystal effects. I used the new Fifth Avenue  and  Botanical Blooms sets from Stampin’ Up! and Bird on a branch for the sentiment.  All are stamped direct to paper (Classic K Margo).  I lined the inside with whisper white.  The florals are colored using a blender brush and inks. I guess I was missing my old …

A Vignette

This is a card my sweet Grandmother asked me to make her, a while ago ,(I’m ashamed it has taken me so long to make this) Sorry Grandma!   I made a card very similar to this one for an inspiration challenge back in January.  I have a hard time repeating my work… does anyone else have that problem?  Unless I’m in full mass production mode, for a specific purpose, I really don’t like to make the same thing twice!  So, naturally, I had to challenge myself to take it a step further and make this one extra special for my Grandmother. I decided to use Basic Grey paper for the “wallpaper”.  I love this pattern, and the challenge on the BasicGrey blog this week was to use one of three color combos.  I chose the green & red (maroon) combo.  The vase is stamped on red Basic Grey paper from Sugared.  The “wallpaper” background is from the Sugared 6×6 pad as well. I have always loved miniature art, miniature dollhouses, furnishings and well anything mini!  …

Brayered Bay

I grew up in a small city in Ontario on the Bay of Quinte.   I had a sizable river, a large bay and Lake Ontario to play in!   Looking back, my family spent a lot of time at these different bodies of water and all my memories of those times are really special.    I swam with my father and brother in the river, played in the lake with my sister, basked in the sun on the beach of lake Ontario throughout my teenage summers, and camped its shores with my parents, siblings and Grandparents! So, it was with these lovely, comforting memories running through my mind that I created this scene. This is for my Mom, who has spent years of her life looking after us all.  Once we were grown, and left home, she kept right on looking after everyone; my loving Dad, who has passed on, and my sweet Grandfather who suffered from Alzheimer’s for years, before leaving us. Now she takes great care of my wonderful Grandmother who, unfortunately …
