Birds Galore

Here's my take on the sketch for Mojo Monday and yes, it was a bit challenging for some reason. The stamp is from Inkadinkado's Birds Galore. I used black Copics Spica Glitter pen on the image, which was the perfect finishing touch.

Owl Stamp

Thanks to Tanya Sarnowski for letting me know the stamp I used in the last post is a Bella stamp. Now I recognize it. Mystery solved!! :-)

Whooooo are you?

I have no idea who makes this stamp or what it's called hence the blog title. hee hee. I'm not even sure how an owl is suppose to be colored but I figured if he has polka dots on his belly and plaid wings, there could be no wrong way to color him. LOL! I made the sentiment on Word, colored with Copics (I might as well stop writing that cuz it's all I use now - :)), rub on stitches, crackled the stars and used miscellaneous buttons & scrapper's floss. Love that stuff. OH! And I used this sketch for a challenge over at i{heart}-2stamp. She's got some great stuff over on her blog and wondeful talent!!

Lola with Gift Sugar Nellie

Oh my she is sooooo cute!! This is Lola all the way from Scotland off to give my SIL her birthday card next week. I used Copics to color her, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Sabrina papers and glass stickers from Making Memories and various flowers & gems. I used Jenn Balcer's sketch from a few weeks back because I really liked a lot of the finished cards that came from it.

Sweet N Sassy Sugar Nellie

Ok NEW ADDICTION!! This image came from Laurel quite awhile ago. When I first got it I never knew how much I would love the Sugar Nellie images and blogs. Wow!!! My aim was last week's sketch from Whiff Of Joy challenge #21 but I kind of missed the date. I liked the sketch so much I had to try it anyway but I kind of got sidetracked half way through and this is what I ended up with.

Pink Mountain Hunting Trip

My DH, his uncle & cousin all went to Pink Moutain last November for a buffalo hunt. They were successful and wow that stuff is yummy! I've used nestibilities, chipboard, stickers, Quickutz and more miscellaneous embellishments. My DH did his own journalling and the scope on the above layout was his idea. Finicky but fun!

My Brother's Family

Here's another layout I did of xmas pictures my SIL & brother gave us for xmas of the two of them and my neice. I used CTMH papers, lots of Stickles, snowflake punches, Quickutz and a few rub-ons.

Valentine's 2009

Completed this scrap layout last weekend at a crop here in Williams Lake. What a great weekend but don't you find creative work tiring?!! WOW! This is a line from Little Yellow Bicycle and funny sister (twin) bought it too but we had shopped separately!! What I didn't have for embellishments, she did. Too funny!

The chipboard swirl was inked black first then I added the Gunmetal Stickles. The heart chipboard was inked and then Stickled as well. For the swirl on the page below, I inked it with Pearl Adirondack dabber and then covered it with Crackle accent and it does have a cracked finish. Used my nestibilities, tons of rub-ons and embellishments.

Still lovin' those bellas!! I made this one for a friend who has lost 20lbs on Weight Watchers and hasn't even EXERCISED YET!! (bitch) LOL! But congrats to my friend June. That takes a lot of effort and perserverance. Keep it up! Looking great! Colored with Copics and used Copics Spica glitter pen all over her outfit. hee hee

Heartfelt Thanks

I am so glad I bought this Heartfelt Thanks set from SU. It is so versatile and can be used for any occasion. I stamped the swirles on to the pink Bazzill paper, pierced my heart embossed white layer, used my nestabilities for the squares, the flower and the oval saying. Also used my new heart punch from Fiskars and the ribbon is from Little Yellow Bicycle (love that line!!)

Terry Fator Scrapbook Page

Last April we went to Vegas and yes, I am just getting around to this one now. If anyone has tips for taking pics of pages that would be so great!! I added the felt swirls on the left overtop of a red glitter paper. I printed out a star from Word and used it as a template on a coaster, cut it out, then inked it black and added black flock. The swirls in the bottom corners were stickers I added to the red glitter paper and then cut out. I couldn't use a flash because it reflects off my picture and leaves a bright spot in the middle of the page. Because of that, I couldn't get the focus sharp because I am shaking too much when I take a picture without a flash. Well, even a teeny shake is too much for a camera. Anyway, hopefully you get the picture. aaa ha ha!
