Sunday Words of Wisdom!

Hello! Today's quote is one of my "go to's" for bible verses.  And I loved the photo they paired with it.  Enjoy!

See what I mean?  The photo has all these crooked wooden planks, not always a straight path, kinda like our lives. 

See you soon!
Happy Stamping!

Saturday Sketch Share!

Hello!  How thankful are you that every week I am here on Saturday to share cards since obviously, you aren't seeing me any other day!  It is what it is.  Let's get right to today's share, as I am teaching today.  I moved up today's class from the usual 2:30 p.m. time to 11 a.m. because they thought they were moving the store today to it's new location, but that has been moved to a couple of weeks from now, but my class is still set at 11, so I am off and running this morning.  I  will be showing you my card, Debbie's card, and the sketch we both used.  Enjoy!
Tina's Card

Debbie's Card

The Sketches

Yes, it was one of those weeks where we had the choice between square and circle, and as usual, Debbie went circle and I went square.  Another Halloween card, you are thinking?  Well, I went looking for small stamps, and thought of my owls and since I have been creating Fall and Halloween cards for the store, that is the supplies that are on my desk right now, so that is what I went with.  Love how mine came out and love Debbie's too.  Her concept is too cute!  I think we both liked the sketch.  What do you think?

Have a good day.  See you tomorrow!
Happy Stamping!

Debbie's Card

The Sketch
Sitting on my desk, is Halloween stamps and papers, so that it what I went with for this week's card!  I think both Debbie and I liked this sketch.  I love that it is horizontal and is very versatile.  What do you think?

Boo ... From Me to You!

Hello!  Below is my post that is on The Crafty Scrapper's blog today.  At the bottom, you will find the card recipe.  Enjoy!
Hello, it is Tina here, with another fun and creative card for you!
As soon as I saw the spider paper from Authentique, I knew I wanted to play with an idea I saw of a 3D pumpkin.  Check out my card ...

The next photo taken from the side shows the dimension.

To make the pumpkin, all you do is either die cut or punch six circles, each with a smaller circle cut out or punched out of the middle. Fold each in half and glue together.  Super simple.  Since it is just paper, it will fold flat for mailing. 
Even though the main focus of my card is definitely the pumpkin, there are quite a number of other elements including a little spider web charm die from My Favorite Things, pretty ribbon and a sentiment on a punched tag.  Here is a close-up.

You can see the card in person and get all the supplies you need to make it at our favorite scrapbook store, The Crafty Scrapper!
I am not allowed to add the card recipe on their blog because they want to customers to go to the store to find out what was used, which does make sense.  But, on my blog, I really like to add the card ingredients if I know them ....

Paper - Authentique Collection: "Ominous" (plaid), "Tangled" (orange dot and backside spider print), Cardstock Black, Natural White
Stamps - Darcies Lots of Smiles Halloween set (sentiment)
Ink - Memento Black
Tools - Spellbinders Classic Circles, Impression Obsession Mini Leaves (die set, stem was just cut from scratch), My Favorite Things Halloween charms web die, McGill tag punch
Other - Wink of Stella Clear glitter pen, Black Pearls, Sheer Ribbon

I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be a creative idea to share on their blog. They give me a lot of scrapbook elements like chipboard, charms, etc to use on my cards, but as you know, that doesn't always correlate with my style of cards.  I figure if I can come up with basic fold-over cards (simpler than my class ones) that have some kind of creative element, like the pumpkin, in this case, that will work the best!  Thoughts?
Happy Stamping!

You've Got Mail! (a belated post!)

Hello!  Whenever I have a card to go up on The Crafty Scrapper's blog, I set it up here to show you on the same day.  Well, it seems a couple of weeks ago, I forgot to set my own blog post up.  See below for the copy of that blog post ...enjoy!

Hello, it is Tina here again, with another card creation!
I get so excited when I see paper that will match up perfectly with a favorite stamp I own!  And this was the case with the paper in my design team kit this month.  The paper has small circles, to resemble typewriter keys.  I combined this with papers from the same line and a stamp from My Favorite Things, and the card was born.

Add a nice sketch, ribbon and rhinestones and you get a great card!

You can find all the supplies and see this card in person at The Crafty Scrapper!
Happy Stamping!

Tomorrow I have my next post going live on The Crafty Scrapper's blog and so I won't forget again, it is already set up to show here too!  I tell you I have been pretty awful about not only making cards for the blog, but also showing you the ones that are made!  Time seems to go by so fast! 
See you tomorrow!
Happy Stamping!

Sunday Words of Wisdom (on Monday!)!

Hello!  Yes, I forgot all about my usual Sunday post.  And looking back, I also forgot to show you a post that went on The Crafty Scrapper's blog a few weeks ago, so I will be setting that one up for you too!  So, I was thinking about me forgetting stuff and was reminded when I looked on my pinterest word board, that there are much more important things that we should not forget!  Here are a couple of quotes about what not to forget ...enjoy!

Happy Stamping!
