Lost Coast Design - Hard as Stone

Hi Everyone,

I am playing along at the new Lost Coast Designs challenge - the theme is Hard as Stone. And since Halloween is almost around the corner, I went with a spooky interpretation. 



I used the door from the set Door and Window and colored it with water colors. 
Door and Window Set
Stamped the skull and humerus from the articulated skeleton and fuzzy cut it. Placed them in the foreground.


Happy Stamping!

Twofer Card Challenge #8

HI Everyone,

of course I had to play along with the current Twofer challenge. the theme is geometric - how could I not????


I did use a MFT stencil for this - turned out to actually be not allowed.....bummer. But I had a sneaking suspicion about this, so I made myself those tiny triangular stamps...... so forget the stencil  - I did use the same stamp on both cards ;)

Look, here it is:

 I don't think there is a size requirement for the stamps...perhaps I should read the FAQ's????


So I happily stenciled on both cards, as you can see. The happy birthday on the first card is by Neat&Tangled, the die cut thanks is by CUTplorations. Added my tiny stamps.


That was so much fun to make! I also cut two of the triangles on the first card - the bright blue and yellow ones and mounted them with foam tape for some dimension.


The bright pink triangles on the second card I simply masked. I die cut the thanks twice - with black fun foam and neon pink card stock.

This challenge just makes me happy!

Happy Twofing!

My Sweet Petunia and Crackerbox/So Suzy Blog Hop

Hi Everone,
I am delighted to be on the MISTI and Crackerblox&So Suzy Stamps blog hop!
Perhaps you came from the talented Jeanne Streiff


After all I really treasure my MISTI and rarely ever make a card without it!
I was curious about the creative corners and I am going to show you haw to use them.

Quoting from Simon Says Stamps:
These magnetic corners and positioning pieces combine to provide even more possibilities for precision stamping. Create angled designs with diagonal positions for perfectly aligned stamping, card layers, tape or embellishments. Also use as internal bumpers and additional corners for the MISTI. Magnetic corners are used to create off the edge designs, as well as opportunities for precisely layered, spotlighted or telescoped designs with no measuring. The two corners and two triangles also work in the mini MISTI. The L-ruler only works with the regular size.

And here is my card:

I put the magnetic bumper into the right hand corner and layed down the triangle. Lined up my



Made a mask with a post it note and masked the first hat,




repositioned my stamp and stamped again.



Repeated this.


Trimmed a piece of patterned paper, although in the end I decided on the black damask paper, but forgot to take a picture.....marked with pencil, where I cut the pape.


Colored the hats with Inktense pencils.


Took the Halloween sentiment stamp and cut it apart. Lined it up 


  and stamped the top half in black and the bottom half in Versamak ink and heat embossed it in white.


Added black splatters.

Muse Christmas Visions #106


Hi Everyone,

the current Muse at Muse Christmas Visions is Chriss Blagrave from Botanical Cafe.


  She made this wonderful Christmas card:


I had an old water color background laying around, that I kept for future use and it kind of fit. Little more yellow green, but I figured it would do....I used Papertrey dies and spruced it up a bit with gold metallic paper and red metallic berries. Added the striped paper for a modern vibe. and conveniently Chriss heat embossed her sentiment in white - so here is another similarity.


I hope you will find time to play along with us.
The linky list closes at 7:59 AM EST on Monday, August 20.
