New Video and First Card Challenge

Please note this entry will remain at the top until 1-31 due to the challenge..

Well I'm thrilled to be bringing you several firsts.

My first video for 2010 with an exciting stamping technique for everyone to try. My good friends over at Paper Craft Mania got this video first exclusively...but I have now added it to my website to also view. You'll love Paper Crafting Mania as it's a great new place to chat with other paper crafters.

Also with this video is Pinkcloudscrappers first challenge. Here's all the details. You must use the technique that is taught in the video with re-inkers. You can make anything you want and can enter multiple times and on multiple challenges. The cut off for the challenge is 1-31-2010 11pm EST. At the end of the challenge the best card will be chosen and they'll receive a FREE Close To My Heart Stamp set from me. It is not required that you use a Close To My Heart stamp for the challenge, but I sure do love to see them. Once you complete your artwork please use the Mister Linky to connect your card to the challenge. Please let me know if you have any questions...AND LET THE CHALLENGE BEGIN and enjoy watching.

Welcome to the Sassy Rockin Blog Hop

I'm so thrilled to be participating with the Sassy Studios Rockin Customer Blog Hop. I love Sassy's images as they really lend themselves to coloring and just giving that rocking edge to some of my projects. There are four different categories for the entries here are mine and I hope you enjoy them all.

My first entry is for the color combo challenge...this one was a bit hard for me because I think all colors go my combo is Purple, Red and Green with a hint of gold. I hope this is a combo you don't normally think of. This adorable surfer girl card was just perfect with the CTMH Moon Doggie paper.

My next entry is for the Gifted Sistah...Making something that would be perfect for a gift. This picture frame is one you can pick up at Walmart for buck and yet turn it into something so personalized for someone you love...I figured I would take a picture of me and give it to my husband. Hopefully he'll prefer the picture of me, but I do have some stiff competition with this hot little Sassy HunnyBunny.

My third entry is for the Altered Sista... I created this Rockin Box with a cardboard box that I picked up at Hobby Lobby for a couple dollars and then painted it with Create a Shade and reinkers from Close To My Heart, The CTMH Day Dream paper pack and sparkes. Then my Sassy rocker chick completes the whole girly box. I love this one.

One more to go.............................................

My last entry is for the Rockin Layout...At first I wasn't sure which image to use as most of my pictures are of my little boys and then when I saw this retro 50's looking Sassy Girl I knew she would be perfect on a layout I'd been wanting to do of the drive in at Beaufort SC . If you ever are in the Beaufort area take your family to Highway 21 Drive in. It's such a great thing to do and unfortunately there are so few drive ins left.

Now hop back over to the Sassy Studio Design Page and check out some other artwork customers have taken their time and talent to do.

Puppy Love Card

I love, love, love this card. As many of you know, I'm not really fond of my work when I first finish it. I have to let it grow on me, before I choose to like something or not, but this card is the exception. I love it. I really had a ton of detail work and care that went into it, so I suppose that is one reason why I love it so. I stamped the title and cut it out...and of course use some foam tape to really make it pop. Distressed the edges to give that finished look. Use spellbinders to add lots of layers. Chipboard for the homemade heart flowers and sentiment. It really just has a ton of little detail work and I think it shows in the finished project. So let me know what you think.
