Confessions of a Shop-a-holic

Time for another challenge at the Drunken Stamper’s challenge blog! This week is #99 and the challenge is to use shoes and/or purses on your project.
I found the cutest sparkle dsp at a dollar store and it was 50 cents a sheet, I knew it was perfect for the challenge, The image is from Stamping Bella, which is a Canadian company from Toronto Ontario. I coloured it with prismacolor pencils and oms. I cropped the image so more of the dsp can be seen.
Bonus………I made a second card, it is a purse card, I used a design that we had done at a class at Butterfly Moon   It starts with a sheet of card stock 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 1 and 5, crease and fold then measure 1 inch at the top where the 1 inch fold is and cut from that mark to the bottom corner, cut through all layers. then add the lacy strip and handles going through all layers. The bottom tucks under the folded part to close. Add your sentiment to the inside.  Sorry I didn’t take a picture of the open card.
Don’t forget to stop by the Drunken Stampers and join in the shopaho8c challenge this week. You have until Friday October 5th at 11.59 Pacific time to link your project. I am looking forward to seeing your fabulous shoes/purses projects.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your day is fabulous.

Drunken Stampers #97, Hand Wash Cold.....

Challenge time at the Drunken Stamper’s Challenge Blog so get out the washi tape and create. Of course we want to see those creations so when they are done head over to Drunken Stampers Blog and strut your stuff.
I must start off with how behind the times I am……I had to Google Washi Tape so I knew I didn’t have any. I went to my local scrapbooking store to purchase some, it is a small  store and there were only a few to chose from but I loved the designs on the one I used. Along with my favourite little rodents (House Mouse) I love my Dolly Mamas, the one I used is called “burning the candle”.
I coloured with pencil crayons and blended with odourless mineral spirits, added the butcher’s twine I got in a prize pack, then tied some twine in the button., the cardstock is Cameo Coral and the dp is from an Asian stack pack
Thanks for looking today and head on over to the Drunken Stamper’s  Challenge Blog, you have until Friday September 21st 11.59 p.m. Pacific time. See you there.

Let the Bell Ring…..School is Back In!!!

Yesterday….September 4th the Ontario children went back to class, it was great seeing them file up the crescent to the school around the corner. Perfect timing for the challenge over at House Mouse & Friends, there is still time to dig out your school or office related stamps and join the  fun. The challenge closes Saturday midnight EST. Here is what I did for the challenge.
I used a couple of my favourite colours, Lime green and turquoise, I found some fabulous glitter cardstock at the dollar+ store, they were 12 X 12 and 2 for a dollar….can’t walk away from a bargain like that. The image was coloured with prisma colour pencil crayons and odourless mineral spirits.
Thanks for dropping in today and check out my favourite little rodents.

It’s Challenge Time at Clear it Out Tuesday…….

Wow can you believe it is September and today our Ontario schools are back to “work” Hubby and I just had our 52nd anniversary on the holiday Monday and celebrated at a fabulous restaurant in Port Dover (the home of Friday the 13th) called the Erie beach, they have a salad bar that comes to your table, how cool is that. Okay enough about my life and on the the challenge at Clear it Our.
The challenge is Sympathy and your stash item is dark papers, I used a digi stamp from Digi Darla called Sunshine Flower Bouquet. The image was coloured with prisma pencils and oms, ovals were cut with spellbinders. The silver “latchette” border is a die from Memory Box and the silver butterfly is a die from Cheery Lyn Designs. My stash paper is a DCWV Asian paper pack I bought a couple of years ago in the U.S. As you can see I am at the cottage and forgot to bring my sentiment stamps with me this weekend. I always seem to forget something.
Thanks for stopping by today and stop by the Clear it Out Challenge Blog and check out the challenge and add yours to the link so we can have a look. Digi Darla is our sponsor for the challenge so don’t forget to go look at the great images they have for sale.

Think Peach for Endometrial/ Uterine Cancer Month

Wow this is my first post with the Drunken Stamper’s Challenge Blog how cool is that to be up first. I am so excited to be part of a fabulous bunch of crafters. The challenge this week is to use Peach on your project in honour of endometrial/uterine cancer month. You have until Friday September 7th at 11.59 pacific time.
As you can see the scenery is not as pretty as it is when I do my photos at the cottage but it’s nicer than the white cardstock background of taking the picture inside. Challenges are great for taking me out of my comfort zone and using peach and green was taking me there. This is a favourite design I use when i need a card in a hurry it’s fast and simple but looks fabulous in any colours you choose.

To celebrate the new blog...for the Month of September we have a contest running.
