Sentimental Sundays–Anything But A Card

It’s Sunday so it is time for a new Sentimental Sundays challenge. This week we are challenging you to make anything you like, except a card. Don’t forget to include a sentiment.

Since I have been trying new things this week, I decided to try stamping on tile. I am so hooked on digital stamps that I rarely break out my rubber or acrylic stamps any more except for the occasional sentiment. So this week, I used real, actual stamps along with my sadly neglected StazOn ink pads to try stamping on tile.

(I apologize for the shadows in the picture. I had a really hard time trying to get a decent picture.)

I don’t think I like the way they turned out much. I want to change something but I’m just not sure what. My DH says he really likes them (see why I love him?) I am happy I tried something new and tried to push my way out of my comfortable little creative space a little bit.

I hope you will join us at the Sentimental Sundays blog and show us your anything but a card project (with a sentiment). I saw some sneak peeks of the projects some of the other DT members created and they are gorgeous. We are also introducing our new DT. I am so excited to meet all these talented ladies. Stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to meet them. A few have projects today, but they don’t “officially” start until next week, so be sure to come back!

**edited to add** This tip came up in some emails between SS DT members and I thought I would pass it on. As many people know, Blogger has been a bit naughty lately. Now that it is mostly done eating our posts, it won’t let us leave bloggy love, in the form of comments, for other bloggers. The tip is that when you log in, uncheck the box that says “Stay Logged In”. I tried it and haven’t had any problems leaving comments since then. I hope this helps.

Don’t forget the OWH blog hop is still going on. Feel free to enter my candy drawing for the hop.

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy your week end!

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Treasure Life from Close To My Heart, Ornate Textured Background from Stampabilities
  • Papers & CS: None
  • Inks: StazOn Timber Brown, Olive & Black
  • Tools: Oven (baked to make sure ink was set)
  • Embellishments: Felt pads for bottom

I love the tiles, I wouldn't change or add anything, they are so soft looking and great colors. Would never know you were out of your comfort zone. I found another tip for naughty Blogger, clear out your history/cookies, I found that worked best for me so far.

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
