Copics.............

I have Stampin Up markers thinking that they are so great. I even was upset when my son used my markers to make a poster for school. I remember telling him that those markers are expensive and not for posters. That was years ago, and they still are great markers with lots of life in them.

I have been looking at some of the designs from other members of a design team that I am on. Most of them use Copics. Before this I had never heard of them. The coloring of there images is unbelievable. I had to see for myself. So, I broke down and purchased some Copics. But wow, love the Copics so much had to order some more. This is my first attempt at using my new markers. I gave the snowman a little blushed face. I like the way it turned out. I was able to stamp my image using a Ranger distress pad. I had some trouble with other stamp pads that I had. So yesterday, when I ordered a few more markers I ordered a Momento stamp pad too. I can't wait to get my new goodies.

The image here is a stamp from Stamp N Plus Scrap N. I colored him with Copic added a little fun flock, snowflake eyelets and lastly added a few snowflakes from my Sizzix machine. I used spray ink to create the splatter card stock in the background.

Speaking of Sizzix, I have almost everything a person could buy from Sizzix. I better not look into the Cricut.

Well once again, thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you so please add a comment. Happy Stamping~! Tammy

Time to think.....

I have had to do some hard thinking in the last few days. I just lost my grandmother and am responsible for the service. It really makes you reflect on your own life and how short it really is.

This card is just a simple but fresh card done with chalk. I prefer the powdered chalk as it is wonderful to work with. Just stamp your image in versamark and apply the chalk with a cotton ball. I love all the soft pastel colors with the burgundy card stock frame.

It makes me smile as I think about standing in the ocean next month and enjoying the sites. I can see me in this card. Maybe I can even get a photo of me doing just this.

Thanks for stopping by and looking. As always, I love to hear from you. So please leave a message and tell me what you think. Happy Stamping, till next time....

Shoes can we ever get enough?


First I have to apologize that this card is not going in the right direction. I tried many times to fix it but just couldn't figure it out. It is right in my photo album in the computer. So today is another card with that beautiful blue wrapping paper. I promised shoes and here is a great shoe. Don't you just love the color. Again makes me think of the color of the ocean. This card is another Iris Folding card from Stamp N Plus Scrap N. I just love the Iris Folding line. To see some stamps from the line check out the site. You will find a great variety of stamps there.
It was another gorgeous day here in Wisconsin. It just makes you want to get out and enjoy it. I so am in the mood for nice weather. We still have a ton of snow in our yard, but I found that my day lilies are coming up right thought the ice. My son stopped by today with a great salad. I enjoyed eating it while sitting out on the deck. Hope you all are enjoying the nice weather. Spring really is in the air. Hope we don't see that white stuff falling from the sky again till next November.... unlike shoes we get enough of the snow.
Thanks for stopping by and as usual, I love to hear from you so feel free to leave me a comment. I love to have your thoughts and ideas. Happy Stamping.....Tammy

Beautiful Blue


Today I am so excited for my upcoming trip to Florida. I am planning where we will go and things we will be doing. I have tons of ideas, but one things is for sure we will be spending time at the beautiful blue ocean. We want to drive to the Keys, but have no plans for sure on that. It is quite the drive. Maybe a week won't be long enough.
Thinking about all the beautiful blue water that we will see is the inspiration for this card. I love the wrapping paper I used on this card.
This is one of my favorite stamps from the Stamp N Plus Scrap N line of Iris Folding stamps. I just love the dresses and the shoes. Speaking of shoes come back tomorrow for another look of this beautiful blue paper done in a shoe design.
As always thanks for stopping by and taking a look. I would love to know what you think, so please leave me a comment.
Happy Stamping Tammy

I am hoping for the color green soon....

As we get closer and closer to Spring I have the desire to see the color green more. For all that know me green isn't a color that I even like. But I sure like to see it outside. Green grass, green leaves, and green turtles. Yes turtles, I have a creek in the back yard so I have turtles and frogs in the backyard at times.

This turtle card is an Iris Folding card that I just had to do. He is too cute. If you think he is cute too you can find him at Stamp N Plus Scrap N.

I hope that we all get our little pieces of green soon. Don't forget to turn your clocks ahead on Sunday... Happy Stamping. Tammy :)

A precious baby card

So I wanted to do a card with a few different techniques. In this baby card you will find that I have Iris Folded the round part of the baby rattle. I mixed Chalk-Ah-Lot chalk with white paint and painted the bow and handle. I added a cute quilled baby rattle to the bottom for just a little extra touch.

The colors used in this card are nice cause they can be used for boy or girl. Make a few and have them on hand for the upcoming baby shower season.

You can find this stamp at Stamp N Plus Scrap N and you will find that Chalk-Ah-Lot chalk is the best chalk you have ever used. No more scrapping hard chalk so easy to use and so many ways to use it.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a note. Please stop by again. Happy stamping. Tammy
