WMS Doily

I love this doily! Its from the new WMS doily set, as is the cute little border. That big doily is actually two stamps. One for the big doily and another doily inside the first. LOVE! I stamped everything in dark chocolate and then added some Chai Tea ink to soften it up a bit. Kraft base, dark chocolate ribbon finish things off. Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Doily Card

Good Morning! Its Monday! I have a sick little boy to take care of so I will make this quick. The big doily is from Waltzingmouse stamps. I mixed to stamps together. The outer rim really doesn't go with this doily but I think I made it work. The sentiment is from WMS Say It Loud. Its stamped on vellum. I have some American Crafts ribbon and a PTI button. Thanks for stopping in today!

Happy Birthday Waltzingmouse!

Long time, no write! More about that in a minute but first I have to say, Happy Birthday Waltzingmouse Stamps! WMS is now two years old! Have you shopped at WMS? Don't be frightened that they are over seas. Claire will take care of you. WMS has the best customer service and some of the fastest shipping times around. Everything she has sent me has always been top notch. You cant go wrong there! Also her stamp sets are jam packed with goodness- so much bang for your buck (or pound as the case may be).
Because it is Saturday WMS sketch challenge also has a new sketch up. You can check it out here. You can win a free set! Here is my entry:
I have three different sets on this card. I started with the sweet little doily from the dainty doilies 2 set. I stamped it in white. Next I took another small doily from the Dainty Doilies set and stamped it in a variety of colors on top of the white doily. Next I took the small cupcake from the frame It set and stamped it twelve times. I colored them with copics and cut them out. I used pop dots to adhere them to the card. The icing is colored with sakura clear sparkle gel pen. Finally I used the large cupcake from Frame It to make the tag. I colored it and added some stickles. The sentiment is from the Say It Loud set. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart.
And a little close up of the ribbon and tag. Look at all that sparkly goodness! LOVE!
**** Randomness to Follow*****
So if you stop in often you may have noticed a complete lack of posts for the past ten or so days. I try really hard not to do that but we had a big happening at school that I was in charge of. I run the school's PTO (like a PTA but not affiliated with Nat'l PTA) and our biggest fundraiser of the year is an ice cream social. We have ice cream sundaes, cotton candy, popcorn, face painting, bounce houses, DJ, etc... And yours truly gets to coordinate it all and also go after people who are willing to donate their time or bounce house. It takes every waking moment pretty much to take care of that. We also have a huge basket raffle. I donated one. I thought you might like to see it.
Thats all candy! Aren't you glad your kid did not win it? LOL! Hopefully I will be back with regular posts this week! Thanks, as always, for visiting!

Ad Sense Card Collection

Hello there! Well its been a busy week here! All work and no play! Sorry for the lack of posts, I like to update regularly but sometimes I got nothing! I haven't crafted all week. I made these a few weeks ago.
This uses a newer PTI set called Ad Sense and Simple Circles. The Ad Sense is a really unique set. I love the vintage advertising look- so cute and unique.
Same basic layout on both cards. I wanted to make a little set for someone. Who? I am not sure. These are still in my possession but I will be giving them away soon. Thanks for stopping by today!

Waltzingmouse is Turning 2!!!

... and you could win a really big present! Go check out all the details here!
I made this really cute tea cup with Claire's amazing Tea Cup Template. ( There is no way I could ever think that one up on my own!) You can buy it here.I used the gorgeous Festive Foliage stamp set to make my cup. I love that set. Everything looks better with pretty pinecones! I actually used white cardstock but got it all inky with some PTI chai tea ink. The ink for the images is Palette new leaf and memento jumbo java. The liner is some old green patterned paper. I have no idea of manufacturer.
One more view of the tea cup. This template is easier than it looks but I am not going to swear its easy, LOL! I am a little challenged when it comes the fussy cutting and that handle was hard! But it was fun and I do look forward to making another.

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 46

Good Afternoon! Happy Mother's Day! Today I have a card based on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (#46). You can get all the details here.
I used two sets here: Vintage Circles and Lil' Buddies... oh and the teeny bee is from Spring Baskets. So I guess that is three sets. The little flower is from the Vintage Circle set. I think it looks awesome with those bees. Both of the circles are from the Vintage Circle set also. They are one stamp but I preformed surgery on them and now they are two. I dont do well selectively inking stuff. LOL.
The last picture is a close up in an attempt to show you the sparkle from my spica pens. Sorry photography is not my talent. Have a good day!

A Little More Waltzingmouse

Good Morning! Happy Monday to you! I have another WMS card for you today. I used the Teeny Trees set. Yes, every stamp on here- all from the same awesome set! All I added was a little bling and ribbon and we were good to go. The cardstock is white and sweet blush from PTI. The ribbon is also PTI. The inks are from dew drops, palette, colorbox, and PTI. If you ever have questions on color just send me a comment. Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 45

Good Afternoon! Are you enjoying your Sunday? Did you know its Waltzingmouse Stamps release day? You should run right over and check out all the great stamps Claire has to offer this month. I ended up getting both Doily sets and Say It Loud. I can't wait for my royal mail!
Today I have a card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #45. You can find the details here.
For this card I used some Soft Stone Cardstock. I stamped it with one of the backgrounds from the PicNic Patterns set (WMS) The flowers are also from that set. The sentiment is from Teeny Trees. I used some buttons and ribbon on the side. Some really old Heidi Swap bling and some cardstock punched with an EK success punch.
A close up of the shiny things! LOL! Thanks for stopping in!
