Faithful Bear
Topic: 3D paperwork

This 3D bear is made of cardstock and is from a punch-out sheet. Hey, I LIKE this way of doing 3D! The sheet was the gift of a friend as was the floral paper on this card. 

After assembling the bear it was a simple task to put together the papers and a cardstock sticker. I'd be surprised if this took more than 5 minutes.

Hopeful Nest
Topic: Stamping

I colored up this nest with watercolor pencils and used a Nestabilities Labels die on the angle to cut it out. A layer of scrapbook paper with rounded corners backs this and a blue layer separates these from the yellow folded cardstock base. 

I used brown rubons at the base of the main panel as they simulated branches. Then I added coordinating corner rubons at the top.

The text block is a cardstock sticker.

Light For A Friend
Topic: Stamping

Oh how I do like this stamp!

Watercolor pencils, cutting with a Nestabilities Label die, and distressing around the die... I used a pre-printed tag for the main text block and a die-cut script for the two words. Lots of layering over scrapbook paper ties it all together.

I used gold peel-off stickers in two corners and along the right edge, then colored two rhinestones with Sharpie marker and used them to dot the I in the text and to give the hummingbird a sparkling eye.

Fragile Life
Topic: Stamping

Here's another using my hand-carved hummingbird stamp. I cut a window in a patterned paper and inserted a marbled paper behind it. Three floral stickers were stuck to the background and raised the bird up on pop-dots.

I used golden Stickles on the flowers and silvery Stickles on the bird.

Three flower brads adorn the upper left and a clear sticker provides the text.

Best Things In Life
Topic: Stamping

Back with the hat stamp! I used a Nestabilities Labels die to cut out and emboss a panel for mounting. It and the folded card base of the same color were distressed with 'Worn Lipstick' distress ink. I used a corner punch on the cardstock base and inserted a blue panel to match the hat.

This caused the corners to look like latice so I added some flowers in these corners. 

The feature panel and the hat are both mounted with pop-dots. The text block is a cardstock sticker.

Give Thanks
Topic: Stamping

Not quite monochrome - but close... I used watercolor pencils on the stamped image and mounted on 4 cut panels and a folded card base. Two of the layers are mounted with pop-dots.

Embellishments are silk flowers with copper brads in the center, a doodle line around the edge, and a clear scripture sticker.

The text in the upper left is hand lettered with Sharpie marker.

Topic: Around the House

For an autumn decoration I removed the pillar candles from this tower stand and filled the holders with apples and the spaces with grapes. A few more apples spilled around the base and, voila! 

I made this arrangement for a sideboard in my dining room.

Birthday Bouquet
Topic: Stamping

Are you as surprised as I am at the sheer number of carved stamps? Only one more to go after this one, though.

This is actually a set of three roses I carved - a large rose, a medium rose, and a bud. This is, without question, the stamp set I have made the most use of.

I used masking to create layers in this bouquet and colored with three layers of watercolor markers to define the shadows and highlights in the blooms.

Green marker was used to color the bases of the buds and to add greenery around and within the bouquet. Then yellow was used to color the background. 

I used Nestabilities to cut the border, using a bit of creative finangling to make a long rectangle into a shaped wide rectangle.

Placed on a green folded card base, the bouquet was enhanced with a double-ribbon bow and a cardstock text sticker.

I Just Had an Idea
Topic: Stamping

A tiny stamp becomes a brilliant border by stamping repeatedly with yellow ink. Just once, I stamped in black in the center.

All of the bulbs were colored with yellow watercolor marker and a panel border of grey was drawn in. I added text with individual rub-on letters and added Stickles to every one of the bulbs.

After the glitter was dry I placed black brads in the 4 corners of the panel and attached to a folded card base with a black printed scrapbook paper.

Smile or Smirk?
Topic: Stamping

This is one carving that I am particularly happy with, It is done on carving block with the Speedball carving tools and I simply love how it turned out. I haven't used it much since I don't have a lot of call for llamas, but I do think he is sweet.

I stamped on white card and cut/embossed the panel with a shaped rectangle Nestability. The border was distressed with ink and then mounted to a sweries of panels with rounded corners. 

The stack of panels was added to a folded purple cardstock base and the text was added with white rubons.

Meshing Style
Topic: Stamping

This stamp was carved based on a sketch I did in church of the pattern on the dress of a lady sitting in front of me. How fitting, then, that it be used for a scripture card!

I stamped on a folded white card base and colored with watercolor markers. I colored the background blocks with light blue marker and then drew in the mesh and the border with light grey. 

The scripture text is a clear sticker.

Topic: Stamping

I have no idea what species of fish this is supposed to be so I colored it up (watercolor markers) like no fish I have ever seen! The carved stamp is just the black lines, and I did repeat stamping as I often do with a smaller stamp.

The swirling water is also colored with markers and I added rubon text at the top of the card. 

I added Glossy Accents to the water and the fish eyes then applied Stickles to the fish. Here you get a better look at that effect.

Oh, Joy!
Topic: Stamping

So, what do you do with a stamp of a dip-pen? You write something with it!

I added a clear text sticker at the tip of my carved pen and then cut the panel down to size. After placing on a green folced card base I went to town with clear poinsettia and holly stickers from a set. 

I used gold border stickers to define the panel as a last step.

Window on Home
Topic: Stamping

The scrapbook paper I chose to stamp the window on is supposed to be a basket-weave. But when the window gets stamped on it and colored with some grey marker, I magically turns to brick!

I used a Nestability shaped rectangle to cut bothe the brick panel and the underlying burgundy panel. The burgundy also has embossed edges which were distressed with color.

I cut out the windowpanes with a craft knife and glued a farm scene behind the window. 

After adding the panel to a violet folded cardstock I added clear stickers of pen and ink and then placed a carstock sticker to the top.

How Do I Color?
Topic: Stamping

9 little crayons stamped in a row, colored with a variety of Whispers inkpads. I cut the strip out and then made slits to weave the ribbon through. A bow ties between to on the right.

I added a sticker of a little school-girl and a text sticker. 

Two borders of fine-tip marker doodling define some panels.

Postcard Card
Topic: Stamping

Upper-right corner has a stamped stamp! I carved this with PoStUdIo at the bottom and 3d at the top. It has been stamped in black ink and colored with watercolor markers. I added a travel sticker in the lower left and the greeting in the upper left. The flowers in the greeting matched some others on the sticker sheet so I placed these as a bottom border. 

I pulled the colors from these elements to color in the stamp. A fine-line pen was used to add borders and the address lines.

Since this is a card rather than a real postcard, the address is left blank and any further greetings will be placed on the inside.

Classy Card
Topic: Stamping

This fish in the seaweed was inked up with markers and stamped three times across the bottom of folded white cardstock. I also colored in the fish and the background with markers, as well.

The border was created with stickers and some doodling was added to connect them to each other and to the card. 

The lettering was hand drawn and colored with markers.

Light and Salvation
Topic: Stamping

Even I didn't realize how many hand-carved stamps I had made until I started this project!

Today's entry is a lighthouse colored with watercolor markers. I extended the rocks beyond the bounds of the stamp with color and then drew in some black hashing over it. 

The yellow cardstock got an aperture cut with a Labels Nestability and then the top was embossed with dots to mimit a night sky and the bottom with swirls to represent waves.

I used marker to draw around the aperture and placed the panel on folded blue cardstock. The text is a clear sticker.

Tulip Garden
Topic: Stamping

I carved a little grouping of three tulips for this stamp.  I stamped a repeating border on a folded white card base and colored with watercolor markers. I added a few additional leaves with black Sharpie so the border would not be so predictable.

After adding the clear cross scripture sticker, I added Glossy Accents to all the flowers and leaves. Here you can see the effect this has on the card's wow-factor.

Moon Man
Topic: Stamping

This is the only stamp I have carved using a rotary tool. I did the basic cutting around the image with the carving set and then reamed out the background with the rotary. Sure was faster than hackng away with the tools.

I stamped this guy on white cardstock and colored with watercolor marker and cut it out. He is raised with pop-dots on a labels Nestability panel with embossed and color-distressed edges. 

The label is also raised on pop-dots on a folded blue card base. Shimmery star stickers enhance the background and also set off two corners of a vellum scripture sticker.
