More Amazing Chipboard

Hi there! I'm back today with some vintage chipboard!!  Ok, the chipboard itself isn't vintage but it sure looks great on a vintage card doesn't it?  Maybe shabby vintage?  LOL! 

The stamp set I've used is from Live and Love Crafts "Stempelglede - Postcard from Paris" and I've adorned it with my usual raft of flowers.  LOL! 

This honeycomb piece is one of my absolute favorites and so far I've managed to use 2 pieces from the 1 piece that's on the Southern Ridge Trading Company store and still have another piece left.  This piece is numbered PAT-274.

Here's another gorgeous flourish piece from SRTC COR-181.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your week.  I hope you manage to get in some crafty time this week.  It's soooo good for you!  hee hee

August Monthly Kit and Clowder Challenge

Welcome back to another challenge at Kit and Clowder and this month we are playing with 


We are being sponsored by The East Wind digi stamps who is giving away 3 free digi stamps as this month's prize.  Check them out!  This one I'm using is called ''Aurora - Spring Butterfly".  Pretty?  I think so!!!

I've used a few gorgeous pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard pieces.  The first one is the flowery frame (FRA-287) underneath my image layer.  I painted it white and then added shabby pink Frantage to it.  Of course I used my normal overabundance of extra's.  hee hee

Love these Prima bulbs!!  The bird (NAT-295) is another piece from SRTC and I painted this one with pink, painted some white Gesso on, which turned pink...LOL...then I added some Stardust stickles...which also turned pink.  LOL!  So fine whatever!  Still looks good.  hee hee
I used a number of resin stars just because I'm like that!!  So here's my close up of my coloring and this was my 4th attempt.  Practice practice practice!  It will be wonderful when one day I just grab an image and color it!!  Can't wait!  But it's coming.  hee hee

Come on over to the Kit and Clowder Facebook page as we are having all kinds of giveaways to celebrate 3000 members.  Freebies and tons of sales!

Aquarius Tilda

Have I ever got a loaded card to share with you today!!  It's been awhile since I've shared a Magnolia but I made this one at a crop I went to some time ago.  

I masked 2 images together called "Aquarius Tilda" and "Oyster w/Pearl" and used some gorgeous papers from Live and Love Crafts called "Shoreline Treasures" by Pion Designs.

I've used 2 fun chipboard pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company and my first being this super cute starfish (NAT-320).  I covered it with Tim Holtz paint dauber first and then his Rock Candy and thanks to a friend, she pointed out that it has a bit of glitter in it.  I DIDN'T KNOW THAT otherwise I would have had my own months ago!  BUT good to know now!! 

My 2nd piece of chipboard from SRTC is this super cute piece of coral.  LUV IT!!  I altered it the same way as I did the starfish above. (NAT-331). 

How cute is this resin seahorse?!  OMG!!  One of those HAD TO HAVE things.  hee hee  And how gorgeous is this lace from LLC called "Sophie"?!!

I really enjoyed decking this card out with my usual supplies including the sailboat charm and rolled flower from LLC.  

And lastly my colored image.  I actually managed to get a good enough shot so you can see the glitter on the pearl.  I luuuuuv glitter!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty Papers

Welcome back for another viewing of another card creation!  I just wanted to share some belated news with you guys that I haven't had a chance at yet.  I've been asked to be on the DT for:

M R Designs digi papers!!!

WOO HOO!  Of course I didn't hesitate because they are sooooo pretty!!  So here's my creation from her newest set showing "Vintage Garden Party". 

The flowers are also created by her to match the papers and those are called "Vintage Garden Party Elements Pack 1".  She even makes another pack filled with sentiments and tags called "Vintage Garden Party Elements Pack 2" as well as inserts for your cards "Vintage Garden Party Inserts".

So I learned to do the coolest thing!!  To merge my digi papers onto a digi image!!!  I used this sweet little image from Tiddly Inks called "Celebrate Joyfully" who comes with a sentiment and extra flowers as well.  I actually used 2 different papers to merge, from M R Designs "Vintage Garden Party" so I could, of course, match my papers.  I learned to do this tutorial in Alyce's clothing class, totally worth EVERY PENNY!

I'm going to enter this card into Tiddly Inks as their challenge is BFF.  It's very difficult to take a picture of anything that reflects and my labeler tape pieces always do.  So here is a close up of what's in my resin frame on the card. 

Ok off to mow the lawn!  Good thing it's small as we are going through a heat wave right now but I'll only be out there for 20mins.  Besides, our a/c works so well I'm actually cold right now but I'm NOT complaining.  Thanks for stopping by!

Without further ado this month's winner is:

Jane you can either respond here and leave me a comment with your email address or better yet, email me at

I've been doing this since last December so I'm taking a few months off for a break.  Summer break I guess.  LOL!!  I hope to be back in the fall.  Thanks everyone for signing up.

July Kit and Clowder Challenge

Welcome back to another challenge at Kit and Clowder and this month we are focusing on "clothing techniques!"  I tried to color pleats - still practicing.  LOL!!  We are being sponsored by Art by Miran  and this precious image is called "Molly".  If you'd like to cheque out more adorable images check out the Etsy store or FB group.

For more inspiration on clothing techniques visit the Kit and Clowder challenge and check out the K&C DT cards.  They did an amazing job!

I chose to use some gorgeous papers sold at Whimsy Stamps from M R Designs called "Clarabelle".  Luv them!! 

I've also used some gorgeous pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  The flourish by the flowers is the first one and it comes in a big sheet, which Karen sold at a recent crop I was at.  If you are interested please let me know.

I love making glitter butterflies.  I cut the first layer using my TH butterfly border with chipboard from SRTC, cut another piece using the papers from M R Designs and glued it down.  Then I adhered some double sided tape to some vellum and cut one more butterfly border die.  Once cut, I peeled back the tape, then dipped in GlitterRitz.  Sooooo pretttttyyyyy!  LOL!

The butterfly (INS-256) on the right is from Southern Ridge Trading Company which I dabbed with a white Tim Holtz dauber, let it dry and sprayed with a mist. 

Loved adding these pearls and then I topped all the flowers off with Stardust Stickles. 

Ok that was a lot for one post wasn't it?  LOL!  Well I hope you have a wonderful and hopefully creative weekend!  Off to play with my sister.  YAY!!  hee hee

Welcome back to my blog!!  I'm super excited to share this card made for a wonderful friend who's granddaughter graduated this year.  I couldn't believe how excited she was when she got it.  So very appreciative of it and those people are the ones I love to commission cards for.  Thank you Marg!!!

As you can see I've used "Lovely" from Saturated Canary and popped her up on a bed of gorgeous papers from Maja Design.  

The grad cap is chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company and I've painted it black, covered it with Tim Holtz crackle then "frantaged" it.  Is that a word?  LOL!!

This tag is also from Southern Ridge Trading Company #TAG-047.  I covered it with some Maja Design paper, added some frantage, the "congratulations" labeler sentiment and then popped some pearls on it. 

Don't you just love resin pieces?  OMG if I could add one to every card that would be perfect!!  I'm getting quite a collection so that just might be possible.  LOL! 

Don't forget about my Tiddly Inks giveaway if you haven't signed up yet!

C.C. Designs and K&C Monthly Challenge

This time at Kit and Clowder we have C.C. Designs sponsoring the monthly challenge, which is

I got to play with this new image called "Margarita Time" now available.  Doesn't she look like she's enjoying her drink?!!  I even added some glossy accents to the drink, upon a great suggestion from one of my BF's.  Oh and the same BF helped me finish my image.  For some reason I was about 95% done and I just could not get it done so she came to my rescue.  LOL!!

I've used these new gorgeous papers from Maja Design I bought from Live and Love Crafts called "Coffee in the Arbour".  Seems like I waited FOREVER for new Maja papers!  LOL!!  Also from LLC are the Kort and Godt soft pink flowers called curly roses at the top and the white chrysanthemums. 

I've adorned it with my favorite Wild Orchid Craft flowers, a gorgeous Prima resin butterfly, an oh so stunning pearl rose ribbon and painted it up with gesso.  OH and isn't that "HELLO" paperclip from Maya Road the cutest?!

Short post today but I hope you liked my card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Kit and Clowder Monthly Challenge

Ok so this post is gonna be JAM PACKED today so bear with me!
A friend contacted me to make a few cards for her and sent me this sample to start with.  THE SECOND ROW, not the one with a square around it.  At first I thought it would be easy, until I tore apart my room to find matching papers and NODDA!  OMG NOW WHAT?!!
 M R Designs is what!!  She made up these papers especially for me and they are stinkin' PERFECT!!   Thank you Michele!
This chipboard sign is from Southern Ridge Trading Company so I just added some letters from my labeler and added some gesso!

And my favorite thing to do...add EMBELLISHMENTS and flowers!!  Love my Kort and Godt white chrysanthemums, my resin heart and metal deco from Live and Love Crafts one of the sponsors for this month's challenge at K&C!

One Bird and One Butterfly

How strange to see something other than an image from me for the main focal point right?!  Well I just thought it showcased these chipboard pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company so beautifully.  OH AND you even get to see more of my gorgeous Pion paper this way.  Yup, I know I cover lots of mine up but ... I don't believe in TOO many embellishments...EVAH!  LOL!  I actually held myself back from adding more to this one.  hee hee

So this butterfly number is #INS-082 and available in the SRTC store.  I covered it with Tim Holtz white crackle and it's as easy as that!!  LOL!

I kind of went a little crazy on this cutie "bird and leaves" piece but you can't see that.  LOL!  I added many colors of paint and crackle paint to the leaves until it got to this.  I covered the bird with some TH paint and then covered everything with TH crackle rock candy.  A little shiny but I like the finished look.  This isn't on the store yet but will be coming soon!

There you have it!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend!

Ladybug Marci

HAPPY WEEKEND MY PEEPS!!  Well if you're around I am sharing a new card with you today!  I haven't played with red/white/kraft colors in AGES and it was kinda fun I have to say!!  And how do you like that honeycomb chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company?!!!  It's so easy to cut however you want it to fit.  LUV THAT!!! 

This cute little image is called Ladybug Marci from La La Land.  First time playing with these images and I think this was my 7th attempt.   ha ha ha!  I still managed to mess up a few things but I'm not going to tell you in hopes that you won't even notice.  LMBO!

OH AND just so you know, there is a giveaway going on today at the Kit and Clowder Facebook page.  You could win a $10 gift certificate to the store and this giveaway is in conjunction with La La Land putting on the same win themselves.  That's not all but visit the page to find out!!

Well when this posts I will probably be tapped out.  We are camping this weekend and I don't know if there is cell service.  OMG RIGHT?!!  It'll probably do me good.  BUT - let's not kid ourselves here.  I AM taking my Copics!!!  LOL!!

Southern Ridge Chipboard Company

Hello all!  I'm back with another cutie card topped off with some wonderful chipboard pieces!!   I've used all kinds of goodies from all over the place on this one!!

The heart border die is from Joy Crafts along with the single hearts that I cut and added over top.  The long stem flowers and grass are from Magnolia and there are Wild Orchid Craft flowers and Kort and Godt flowers scattered throughout.  My gorgeous laces and little present charm is from Live and Love Crafts, my favorite one stop shop store!  Oh I must also mention I bought my papers there as well.  Maja Design's "Vintage Spring Basics" and if you look you can actually see my paper this time!  LOL!

Southern Ridge carries some gorgeous butterflies but this is one of my favorites!!  I painted it up with a Tim Holtz dauber and then added some shabby chic white Frantage around the edges.  The number of this one is INS-082 and you'll find it in the Insects, Animals, Nature and Garden category.

I love this banner because it's etched to look like wood - ON CHIPBOARD!  So instead of coloring it, I just added my own paper sentiment then painted some Gesso around the edges.  This one is BAN-284 and found in the Tags, Banners and Signs category.

AND of course I colored this little sweetie "Daphne" from Wee Stamps, using Copics!
