Hello, it's time for another Totally Stampalicious TSMONDAY challenge! This weeks challenge is to create something using inspiration from your favorite TV show. Rachael Ray is one of my favorites, I watch her show, buy her magazine and even own a few of her cookbooks! I've made lots of her recipes, and some are regulars at our dinner table!

Now if you watch Rachael Ray, you k now that her favorite colour is orange, she often talks about her Hubby John, and she always refers to extra virgin olive oil as EVOO! So I combined all these elements in my card.

I used the JJ Cook Bugaboo image from Totally Stampalicious. She's coloured with copics.

The words in the background were made with a Justrite font.

I coloured the linen thread on the button with a copic.

Hopefully you can play along this week. Just upload your creation to Mr. Linky at Totally Stampalicious, for a chance to win something cool!

Stamps: JJ cook, justrite font
Paper: rich razzleberry, pumpkin pie, white
Ink: memento tuxedo black, rich razzleberry, pumpkin pie
Accessories: copics, EK edge punches, ribbon, button, linen thread, dimensionals

Speedy's Challenge #4 Meoooow!!!!

Hi Everyone, I'm sneakin' in under the wire on this one! I made this for the 4th Speedy's Friends Challenge, we were to create a card or project with an animal on it!

I used the Siamese cat from the Speedy's Friends set. I also made this based on Faith's Original Coaster design. I loved this so much the day she posted it, that I went out & bought the materials (well my mirrors are round) and then never got around to making it!

I stamped my Kitty in versamark and then chocolate chip onto very vanilla and embossed in clear embossing powder. Then I sponged on Tim Holtz antique linen and vintage photo. The eyes are a copic BG05 and a bit of BG09.

The stand itself is 2 - 4" square coasters the front & back are covered with very vanilla, corners rounded and edges sponged in cool caribbean and tempting turquiose! The mats for the mirror were cut with circle and petite circle nesties.

The leaves were made with the sizzix leafy branch, and the flowers were made using the Rolled Flower technique. The flowers are very vanilla, edges sponged with cool caribbean and then I put a bit of Tim Holtz distress stickles on the edges.

Stamps: Speedy the Cat's Friends
Paper: very vanilla, chocolate chip, dp
Ink: versamark, chocolate chip, cool caribbean, tempting turquoise
Accessories: copics, sponges, nesties, sizzix leafy branch, distress stickles, dimensionals, jumbo eyelets, ribbon

Have a Great Day!

Happy 17th Birthday Rachel!

Well I can't believe my Daughter Rachel is 17 today, and this is the card I made for her. Rachel is a fan of basketball, she loves to play it and watch it, so Basketball Riley is perfect for her.

I used this weeks sketch challenge SC282.

I masked out the number on Riley's jersey and added a '17' for her age! Rachel used to love Pingu when she was little, and you could always tell the girls from the boys because the girls have eyelashes! So I added a little bit of lash to Riley to make him a Sophie!

I coloured Riley with copics. I also used the wood floor stamp on the bottom and coloured it with copics. The image panel is popped up.

The background has basketballs stamped in matching ink.

Stamps: Basketball Riley, wood floor, See D's sports
Paper: black, riding hood red, white
Ink: memento tuxedo black, riding hood red
Accessories: copics, MS edge punch, ribbon, dimensionals, fine tip marker

Notice: I'm still looking for ckflower, the winner of the sentiments from the Blog Hop. Unfortunately if I don't here anything by Friday May 28, I will have to pick another winner. Please email me at

Have a Great Day!

There that's my confession for today! lol
The card base is black, with a layer of white, and then red that's stamped with the french script and the edges sponged. Then I stamped the scroll in black.

Today I'm showing 3 cards, using 3 different stamps Rileys from this release and 2 different sentiment sets!

First is Glenda the Good Witch! I tried to make her as beautiful and sparkly as the original! I coloured her with copics, then using a glue marker I added glitter. She also has little tiny rhinestone stars on her dress and a round one in her crown. She's popped up with dimensionals.

The background dp is from Basic greys Sultry. The die cuts were made with spellbinders In Spades pendant, and the label #4. It's hard to see in the pic, but the white is a shimmery white. I finished it off with pink rhinestones.

Riley Storage and a Peek!

Hello Everyone, well as promised here is a mini tutorial on storing unmounted Rileys! Like I said yesterday, I bought the unmounted Rileys to save money so I could buy more. My original plan was to mount them on ez mount myself. Then I discovered that I could spritz the back of the stamp with a little water and it would cling to the clear block! How easy is that! But then I had stamps everywhere and it wasn't easy to see what I had.

This wasn't my idea, I found it somewhere on the internet, but maybe you haven't seen it, so here goes!


Okay this is the tools you'll need:

Aleene's Tack it over & over, rubber scissors and a foam brush

Here's your sneak peek of this May's Riley I know...such a tease!!!! ok here they are cut. I lay them of a piece of acetate which is on a scrap piece of cardstock.

Apply the Aleene's Tack it over & over, then spread with the foam brush. You really don't need a whole lot. Then I usually set them aside over night. The next day, I put each stamp in my hand, one at a time, sticking it and unsticking it a few times to lessen the stickyness...okay that sounds crazy but I don't know how else to explain it! lol

Here's the finished product. I bought this leather organizer at Liquidation World which is similar to Big Lots in the US. I think I paid $5.00 for it!!! They often carry this stuff cheap with outdated calendars inside. This binder has 3 rings inside.

Then I took pieces of 8 1/2 x 11" cardstock, cut them in half and rounded the corners. I had them lamenated at the Office Depot, it's very inexpensive.

I punched the holes in them and inserted into my binder! The Rileys stick perfectly.You can see from the photo that they are easy to find and use. I was trying to keep them in alphabetical order, but now I'm running out of space. I'm going to have to move to a regular size binder with full sheets of laminated cardstock! I Love Riley!

I hope you found this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know.

Don't forget the real Riley sneak peeks start tomorrow, with a blog hop on Wednesday 10 pm est and release immediately after, you're going to LOVE this release!

Diapers Diapers Diapers!

Hello again, I combined 2 challenges for this one. I used this weeks sketch challenge SC279, and todays Ways to use it challenge WT269, we were to use some kind of pin.

I had some coloured safety pins I bought at the $ store, which then made me think of diapers and it seemed to really fit with this weeks sketch challenge! You probably can't tell in the photo, but for the white pieces I used thick white cardstock and torn a layer or ply off so that the surface exposed kinda looks like flannel diapers!

The designer paper is from DCWV Nana's nursery and I used certainly celery and brocade blue.

The image is Baby Riley, from Riley and Company. I coloured him with copics and gave him a designer diaper. I had coloured the soother but didn't like it, so I restamped it on white, and cut it out.

Have a great Day!


Embossed Vellum!

Hello out there! I made this card for this weeks technique lovers challenge TLC271. We were to emboss vellum and as a bonus make it a card for Mom!

This was a really quick card, and alot less layers than I'm used to! lol The cardbase is regal rose, and then my vellum embossed with a new embossing folder from Crafts-too called swirl frame. I covered the embossed stars with little stars made with a MS punch. Then to make the swirl stand out, I traced it with a sparkly stardust pen by sakura. To attach the vellum, I used scotch brand vellum dbl. sided tape which worked really well and you can't see it!

The image is Scarlette-I'm so excited. She is a Bugaboo image now available at Totally Stampalicious as a clear stamp! Scarlette fits perfectly into the swirl frame, I coloured her with copics, matted it and popped it up.

SCS is down for maintenance right now, so I'll add the links when they're back up.

Thanks for stopping by,

TSMONDAY, Flower Power!

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! It's another Totally Stampalicious Monday, and this weeks challenge is to use flowers, you can use flower stamps, designer paper, embossing, primas etc., whatever you choose! Make sure to upload your card with Mr. Linky on the Totally Stampalicious Blog! Congratulations to last weeks winner Georgia Mac, she won a $5.00 gift certificate!

For todays card, I used 2 stamps sets from Totally Stampalicious. The Little boy is Sean, and the big flowers are from the Fat Mouse set. These are both Bugaboo images which are now available in clear stamps at Totally Stampalicious.

I combined the Flower Power challenge with last weeks sketch challenge SC278.

Sean was stamped twice and coloured with copics. I cut out his head & popped it up, and I also cute out the little flower and leaf.

The bigger flowers were coloured with copics, cut out and I added the stem from the new SU 2 step bird punch. The centers of the flowers are covered in brown stickles. I was going for a black eyed Susan look!

The sentiment is also in the Sean set, and I used the word window but made it smaller. I also used the modern tag punch but made it shorter by cutting it in the middle and overlapping the ends.

If you want to see another card using the flower, please scroll down to see the Mouse carrying a whole bunch of flowers!

Stamps: Sean, Fat Mouse-flower
Paper: chocolate chip, summer sun, white
Ink: memento tuxedo black, bashful blue

Please Don't Eat My Daisies!

Hello out there! I combined a few challenges into this card! The sketch is from this weeks C4C35. The colours are this past weeks CC268 old banana ballet, with the dessert option of a red embellishment - mine is the red heart brad on his butt!

And last but certainly not least the Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT91, Sadie my lady that's just a tad shady! Aunt Sadie is determined to win the most prestigious Daisy Gardening Title, but someone (Sir Pluckapetal) has been picking her petals and her Daisies are far from prize worthy!

This cute little Fat mouse is coming to the rescue! He found a beautiful garden filled with daisies and managed to nab as many as his little paws...feet...hmmm what are mice feet called?...anyway he nabbed as many as he could hold as the owner was shaking his fist hollering after him 'PLEASE DON'T EAT MY DAISIES!' obviously he is unaware of Aunt Sadie's predicament, and is misguided in thinking this Fat Mouse eats daisies, silly man...he prefers chocolate cupcakes!

The Cute Fat Mouse is a Bugaboo image turned into a clear stamp, now available at Totally Stampalicious. He's only carrying one daisy in the image, but I stamped him, masked him off and stamped more daisies, masking each as I went along!

Stamps: Fat Mouse flower
Paper: ballet blue, old olive, barely banana, white
Ink: memento tuxedo black, barely banana, ballet blue
Accessories: copics, Daisy EF-Crafts-too, oval nestie, heart brad, brads, sponges, stickles, dimensionals, circle punches

Have a great Day!
