Stamped Tile Card

This past weekend I was reminded by someone, who shall remain nameless, but she knows who she is, that I haven't posted in a while.  Yes, I'm guilty of that.  The history of my blog shows that.  It all has to do with the mojo.  If it isn't flowing, it isn't happening.  I have plenty of cards that can be posted, but again, it's the mojo thing, whether it is creating cards or posting them.  It's all lumped together for me.   And, lots of time, I'm busy, or I just simply forget.

So, to break the current rut, here's a card I made a couple months ago for one of my brothers-in-law.  He is a hunter and loves dogs....I think this was the perfect card for him.   I sat down and made it right after I got my issue of the Autumn 2011 Take Ten magazine.  In it there were Stamped Tile Cards by Amber Demien on pages 52 & 53.  Absolutely loved the concept and I'll certainly make other cards like this.  Susan over at Simplicity was also enthralled with these cards and recently did a similar post here.

Cardstock by SU, corrugated & twine from my stash.  Inchie stamps by Inkadinkadoo, sentiment by A Muse.


Sentiment here from Rosie's Roadshow, punch from EKSuccess.  Dog bone punch by Marvy.

Thanks for peeking!

LIM 39: Lucky Dip - Stars

I really wanted to play along with the Less Is More crew last week when the theme was polka dots.   Love me some polka hands down most favorite pattern....any color, any size dots!  Time was not in my favor last week, but it is this week, so I combined this weeks theme of stars with last weeks polka dots.   I also LOVED the sketch layout over at the Clean and Simple blog last week (FTL 163), so I combined all three to make the three cards posted below.

First and second up are 2 super simple creations.  I used the retired SU! small star punch and sentiment from Morningstar.   The patterned paper are tiny scraps from my scrap drawer....have no clue who the manufacturer is, and popped up the stars with dimensionals.

This card doesn't apply to the LIM theme this week as it doesn't have any stars, but it does have polka dots and uses the same sketch.  The flowers are made from a SU! flower punch and EKSuccess circle punch, and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set.

Ahhhhh.....  Feels good to get back to some challenges!
