This is my contribution to Sketch Challenge SC129 on Splitcoast. This is a retired set called Cattitude. I saw a card on Splitcoast that I thought was so cute that it made me just want to have this set. I checked out the Buy/Sell/Trade forum on Splitcoast and there was someone who was nice enough to part with this set for me. I was so pleased. My only problem is the mail and how long it takes for shipments to make it to Canada from the US. I think it took over three weeks for me to get this set. It was well worth the wait though. I was so pleased with how this one turned out. I have been trying to work on my watercoloring and do a better job on my shading. I was very pleased with how this one turned out. The background paper I bought for $6.50 at Wal-Mart. It is cat/dog paper and seeing I am such a lover of them I just had to have it. It is so nice to get a bargain.

Another one we did at stamp camp. I love the effect of it. We used the tag punch for this one. It is all in the way that you fold it. I love how it turned out. This is SU designer paper.
When I first saw this before we attempted it I thought that it would be difficult but it is far from it. There are so many designer papers that you could use this with.

This is a tote and a notebook that I made with my friend Kelly. We had alot of fun making them. We used her tac stamps for the fake stitching and she also had the rubicoil. Tks Kelly for a great afternoon. Hope to do more things with you soon.

This is an older set called Tulips. I originally thought that I was getting the set Terrific Tulips and was pretty disappointed when I got this set by mistake. I really like Tulips as they are one of my favorite flowers. I used Rose Red and so Safron for this one. Love those two colors together.

This is the like it a latte set. I like this layout. I never ever thought that I would like pink and brown together. I made the background paper myself using small stamps that I got from Michael's. This is not one of my favorite sets. I find it hard to work with and can't seem to come up with much at all.

Happy Harmony

Another card made at Stamp Camp. We used the Happy Harmony set from Saleabration. It was so easy to do. We used the markers to color the stamp for a change.

We made this card at Stamp Camp. I think that it is so cute. The background around the fish is done with thick scotch tape dazzling diamonds. All you do it cut your tape bit enough to cover the punch out and then put the thick scotch tape sticky side out and then put the dazzling diamonds on the sticky part and VOILA. It adds so much to the card I think. The paper is long notes from SU.

I bought this background paper at Walmart and I knew right away that I just had to go home and use this image. It was for a challenge to use stamps that would retire in June.
It is now a retired set but I think that it is so cute. I have so many animal lovers in my life.

Another card using my Long Time Friend set. I made this for a swap that I did on SCS. It is an apron and on the back of it I put a pack of seeds. I found the template on SCS as well. Cute!

Long Time Friend

Even though you can't see it by the picture the front of this card is actually raised up on dimensionals and the jug is actually behind on another page. I cased this from Stamper Sharon on Splitcoast Stampers because I liked it so much and I really enjoy Sharon's work. You can view Sharon's here!

Just had to try out my new Basic Grey paper. The stamps are Doodle This. They blend together so well. I also used my TAC ribbon stamps to make fake ribbon. Great idea for a stamp indeed.

I had to try out my new cuttlebug embossing folder. I think this one is so cute. The paper is from Rob & Bob studio.

The images on this card are all done with my handy dandy Cuttlebug. The card sketch that I used can be found here! The designer paper is from Rob & Bob studio. The cardstock is gable green.


This is my favorite stamp and it is called Oops. From the first time that I saw it I just had to have it. Having cats all my life I can see how this would happen and it just made me smile when I saw it. This image I colored with my Watercolor Crayons and my aquapainter. It took many hours but I was quite pleased with how it turned out. It now looks alot like my cat Smokey. When my husband Ev saw it he said that I should frame it so I took his advice.

Another Stampscapes image. This one is called Lakeside Cabin. It never took alot of work but I really like the simplicity of it. Just stamped it with brown ink and colored in the windows in the cabin.

This is a card that I made with my Stampscapes Stamps. I just love them. I colored this with my pencils and then clear embossed the whole image to make it stand out.

Allen's Birthday

This card was stamped with a set that I got from The Angel Company that I just had to have when I saw it. I made this card for my nephew Allen who now lives in Alberta. He came home for his birthday this year. I think that I should have clear embossed the image before I gave it to him though.

Doodle This

This has to be one of my favorite cards that I have made lately. I used the new Doodle This set that I bought. I used the Rose Red and Gable Green cardstock and love the way they come together. I embossed the background and then cut out all the flowers. It took alot of time but I think that it was well worth it. Don't you?

Father's Day Angler

This is a card that I made for my daughter to give to my hubby for Fathers Day. This is an old retired set that I won. It is a great masculine set that will be able to make so many cards for the men in my life. The design of this card was one that I did from a sketch challenge on splitcoast. You can try it here!

Another great TAC image. This is just so cute I had to have it. Great image for coloring. I used my pencils and taltine to color this one.
I have been trying to watercolor for a long time now and still am not completely pleased with how things turn out.
As they say practice makes perfect.

Another sketch challenge on splitcoast. Can be found here! I used my cuttlebug for the flowers and the background and my basic grey paper. Gotta love that basic grey!

This is a stamp that I bought from a friend. I really like this image. I colored it with my wonderful water crayons and my aquapainter. It took my a couple of hours to do but I think that it was worth it. I also used my cuttlebug. The cuttlebug is one of the most useful machines that I have purchased. It is good for so many things. I gave this card to my Dad for his 73rd birthday because he is always looking out his window looking at all the birds in his backyard. He was quite pleased with it and so am I.
