Last Day for Smooches

Good morning, I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was rainy but it was prom weekend and the evening was dry for all the kids. I will be back late today with a card but I wanted to remind you today is the last day to purchase from the Summer Smooches Promotion and to order from the Occassions Mini. There are so many great items in the Mini catalog that I hope you have had a chance to place your order but if not please don't delay.  The fabric brads from the Summer Smooches have already sold out but everything else is still available. I love the fun colors in the Designer Series Paper and hope to start sewing today on a new project with the fun Smooches Fabric. Let me know if you need help placing an order as I am always happy to help. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya

Going,Going Gone!

The Retiring Accessories List was released today and there are so many items on it that I can't list them all here. The pdf is 12 pages long and many items are on sale including 12 x12 Card Stock, Ribbon, Fabric and Designer Series Paper. Now is a great time to stock up on items that you use all year long. You will notice that the Stampin' Pads are included that is because there will be a new pad design starting June 1st. The colors will remain the same just the pad itself will be different. To see all the items that are retiring you can head over to my store and shop now. If you have any questions or would like me to email you the pdf please let me know. Don't forget that these items are only available while supplies last and that might not be long. Thanks for stopping by and as always have a great day, Tonya

Smooch Pinwheels

Good morning, I have a new 3D items to share with you today. Pinwheels are really popular right now and seeing a few recently I decided I should make a few of my own. I used the fun and bright Summer Smooches DSP. First I cut some squares. Mine are 3x3 and 2 1/2x 2 1/2, then using the Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scoring Board I scored the squares Diagonally in the middle to form a X. Using our Paper Snips I cut along the score lines toward the middle but not all the way to the center. I left about a half inch uncut. Then using the Mat and Paper Piercing Tool I poked a hole in the center and four of the corners. I used a brad to hold mine together and they are glued to sucker sticks so this batch doesn't spin but I am working on a bigger version that will spin and I will share that one when I get it done. These would look cut in cupcakes for a party or as a table decoration, like the 4th of July or Memorial Day. I just love how cherry they look. Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow I will be sharing the retiring Accesories list. Remember that list is ony while supplies last and many items will sell out quickly. Have a great day, Tonya

Awash with Flowers

Good afternoon, the weekend flew by but I did get to stamp a quick card for you today. I love when I can squeeze in some stamping time. :) Also just a reminder that the Retiring Accessories List will be released in just 2 days and the items I used on this card are sure to be on the list. The colors are three of the 2010-2012 In Colors which will all be retiring so be sure and order your reinkers, card stock, ribbon and any of the other In Color Items that you can't live without because they are likely to sell out quickly. The card uses the Awash with Flowers Stamp Set that is also retiring. I decided not to add a sentiment to the card at this time since I am not sure what this one will be sent for. The colors are Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzaz, Garden Green, Perfect Plum and Cajun Craze. I added Peach Parfait Twill Ribbon to add an extra touch to the card. I love the twill ribbon and hope we see more of it in different colors in the new catalog since all the In Color Twill Ribbon will be retiring. Well, that is it for today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya

Flower Fancy Swap Samples

 Hello, hope you are ready for the weekend! I know that I am and it is a busy fun filled one. The other day I went through all my swaps on my display boards and took off all the ones that will soon be retiring. As I was taking them down I realized that some of you may not have had the opportunity to see them so I took pictures and am going to share them here with you over the next month. If there are names I will be sure and share them too. The first card is made by Sheryl Wheatley and she used Faux Silk to make this pretty card. The stamp sets are Flower Fancy and Short & Sweet. She used Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, More Mustard and Daffodil Delight. If you have any other questions about this card let me know and I will be happy to help  you.
The second card was made by Cindy Ewertz and it is so super sparkly with the Dazzling Diamonds over the main image. The stamp sets that Cindy used are Flower Fancy, Woodgrain, Perfect Words and Tiny Tags. The colors are Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Marina Mist and Whisper White. I haven't used this technique in a while and think it is time to get the Heat Tool out and give it a try again.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and you check back for more retiring samples. I am going to start doing a few more cards with some of my favorite sets that are retiring and will share those too. Have a great weekend, Tonya

Stamp Challenge

Good morning, I have a new card for you today because I actually stamped yesterday. Granted it was only one stamp but I did make a card. :-) This card was made completely with items that were all ready out on my craft table. I challenged myself to not get any new supplies or items out including Big Shot Dies. The card uses Tangerine Tango Card Stock, Island Indigo Card Stock and Whisper White Card Stock. The Designer Series paper is the Summer Smooches and the Stamp Set is the soon to be retiring but one of my favorites Sincere Salutations. I used the Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the Birthda Wishes for a two color look then punched it out with the Wide Oval Punch. Can you see the fun texture on the Island Indigo Card Stock? I did that with the Diagonal Score Plate. It is so easy to add just a bit of texture with it too. The scallops are made with the Tasteful Trim XL Bigz Die that just happened to be out from a project. Oh and i almost forgot the new Daffodil delight Seam Binding and the Summer Smooches Fabric Brads that are available now. The brads will only be available this month so if you would like to order them please contact me. I don't want you to miss out. I have plans to do some more stamping and also to pull out all my retiring stamp sets today. I have 48 sets that will be retiring soon and there are a lot of great sets. I will be sharing some samples from my display boards with you soon. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya

Gnome Smooching!

Good afternoon, today I wanted to share with you the other two projects that we did at club last week. I love the new Diagonal Board for the Score Tool. It makes making envelopes easy and you can make a variety of sizes. This one is a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 which fits a 3x3 card perfectly. We used the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper like yesterday's post. For the card I used colors from the paper and decided to use the Stampin' Write Markers, Aquapinter and Blender Pen to color the image in various ways. Watercolor paper was used to stamp the images from Gnome Sweet Gnome on and then they were colored in. Basic Gray Classic Ink was used for the stamping so that the image could be watercolored. Do you know someone that could use a little pick me up or maybe a cute card in your child's lunch box to brighten their day, well the 3x 3 cards are perfect for just that occasion. I am going to make this short as I want to get some stamping time in today and we have a busy evening of church youth group and baseball practice. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya

Summer Smooches Purse

Wow this month is flying by which means the Summer Smooches Promotion will be ending on April 30th. For club last week we made this Summer Smooches Purse using the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper, Island Indigo Card Stock, Daffodil Delight Card Stock, Petite Purses Bigs Die, Daffodil Delight Button, Island Indigo Baker's Twine and Dotted Ribbon Scallop Punch. The purses are so easy to make with only two pieces of Sticky Strip and can be embellished so many ways.

Also since it is Tuesday there are new Digital Downloads available for My Digital Studio. If you would like to get more info. about My Digital Studio please contact me and I would be happy to help you. Finally the retiring Stamp Set list is now available and there are lots of great stamp sets on the list this year. I have so many of them and will be pulling them out and using them over the next month and a half to share them with you before they retire for good. I have added the list below but if you would like the list sent to you in a file then please email me and I will be happy to do so. Thanks for stopping by today and please let me know if you have any questions for me. Have a great day, Tonya

You're My Type

Good morning, I have been meaning to share this card with you for quite some time but keep forgetting to post it and since today is the last day to let me know if you would like to attend the You're My Type Card Class that I am having next week I thought I had better get it posted. This card uses the Domestic Goddess Designer Series Paper and the colors are Basic Gray, Whisper White, Pool Party and Calypso Coral. The Stamp Set is from the Occassions Mini and is You're My Type. The great thing about this stamp set is the assortment of sentiments that all fit on the typewriter paper. I also used the Label Framelits as well as the Itty Bitty Punches and Basic Pearls with just a bit of Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon. Sorry if the picture looks funny, I am not sure if it is my screen or blogger but it looks a bit light to me. Well, quick post today as I have a list of errands to run and more projects to work on. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya

Happy Easter!

Good morning and Happy Easter! Just a quick card and post before we head off to church and then off for a family dinner and Easter egg hunt. This card is just a simple little Easter card that I made last week before I went off to a craft show. I made a stepped up version that I will share with you later today but for now this card uses the Wide Oval Punch, Tasteful Trim XL Bigz Die, Bird Punch and some card stock and Designer Series Paper. Oh, yes and the Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers. The little chick would look just as cute on a scrapbook page too. Thanks for stopping by today and have a blessed holiday! Tonya

Stylin' Stampin' Squad April Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to our April Blog Hop. I hope you take the time to continue on the hop from here or if you are coming from Rose's Blog thank you for stopping by. Our theme for this month is Spring, Flowers and Weddings and I have a little bit of them all. The first project uses the new Petite Purse Bigz Die that is available this month from the Summer Smooches Collection. This purse is just so cute but it is small. I made mine from Wisteria Wonder Card Stock then used the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set to stamp the small flowers on the purse before I used Sticky Strip to hold it together. I did some sponging on the edges with Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink also. The purse is closed with a flower made with the Boho Blossoms Punch and the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with Basic Pearl. The purse was spritzed with Shimmer Paint and Rubbing Alcohol for extra shimmer. I think these purses would be very cute for a Bridal Shower to give each guest as they will hold chocolate or if you are a bride and want to give a little gift of jewelry to your bridesmaids these are a great size. I also discovered that you can put three little bottles of nail polish in each purse making it a perfect gift for any little girl. Now lets move onto a card.

I haven't used my Vintage Vogue Stamp Set for quite a while but it was our Challenge set for this month and it was once my go to set. I also used our Color Challenge colors which are Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant. This is not a usual color combo for me but I really like the colors together. I started with a base of Elegant Eggplant and used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder to add some texture. Then I sponged the raised areas to give it more pop and definition. There is a layer of Lucky Limeade that has been stamped with Lucky Limeade Classic Ink and then the corner was punched out with the Scallop Trim Corner Punch. The main image was stamped with Lucky Limeade and Elegant Eggplant using the Rock-n-Roll technique and then layered on Wisteria Wonder Card Stock that has the bottom edge punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. To finish off the card I cut out a small flower and layered it with Very Vanilla Seam Binding and again used the Shimmer Mist spritz to make the card shimmer.

I felt like this card needed something special for the inside also so I stamped the Lucky Limeade Vines on the inside and used the Scallop Trim Border Punch across the bottom of the Very Vanilla Card Stock to give me a great place to write my message.

I hope you enjoyed the post today and I hope you will stop by again. I have another project almost complete for a later post that goes with our wedding theme. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to continue on the hop to Dawn's Blog. Have a great day, Tonya
