Follow Your Heart

I am very excited to show you my first ever Roc Nicholas Design Team creation! This is ATC (Artist Trading Card) size, so it's 3.5" x 2.5". I put magnets on the back so it can go on the fridge or any other magnetic thing you might have around the house. And I say "You" because I'm giving it away! All comments will be "put into a hat" and a winner drawn one week from today on December 3. 

I used Roc's Polka Dot Dog and Flying Heart as the focal points of the ATC. I chose the quote since that's what my heart was telling me to do when Roc announced the Design Team members search and when I did, I was lucky enough to be chosen.

So comment and this cute pup can soon be winging his way to your house next week! 

You can find all of Roc's stamps at Stampotique!

SDC-223-Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

It's Wednesday and that means time for a new challenge at Stampotique.  Nellie is  our hostess this week and she wanted to see Quick And Easy Christmas cards. 

I had to do a "not so quick" embossing on my tags, but otherwise I followed Nellie's rules! I used Magda's Agatha Antlers along with Tim's Hollybough stencil, which I colored with Dyan's Distress Spray Inks,  and a piece of old scrapbooking Christmas cardstock. 

I actually did two tags and will be adding them to my collection of tags and postcards to give away on Friday. I am participating in Flood The Streets With Art. You are just supposed to "abandon" your art piece for someone to find, but since mine are small, I will carry them as I am out shopping and just them out to people as I pass them in the mall. Should be fun!

SDC222-At The Movies

It's time for another Stampotique Designers Challenge and Corrie is our hostess this week. She wants to see something from the movies. There are so many I love, I had a hard time choosing my quote and characters.

I finally decided on Gone With The Wind. A classic for the ages. I loved Scarlet's line at the end when she said, "Tomorrow's another day." Or, in my best Southern accent, Tamarrah's anotha day! I used a mop-up page in my small Dylusions journal. Roc's Feline is my Scarlet, even colored red! And Roc's Crooked House is Tara. 

I could probably do a gozillion of these with some of my favorite movie quotes, but I'll quit with this one.

SDC-221-Take a Box

Sam Read is our hostess this week at Stampotique and she wants us to "Use A Box" or part of a box. 

I decided to get a start on my Christmas gift tags. I used some leftover scraps of Christmas scrapbooking papers and used two of Roc's dogs, Dog and Polka Dot Dog. I used some of Wendy Vecchi's lucious embossing paste thru a stencil for the Merry Christmas.

12 tags of 2015-November

It's time once again for the 12 tags of 2015, the November version! Jump over and see what Tim   created. 

I followed the base pretty close, but instead of the pumpkin, I chose to use the Acorn stamp. I did the acorn the same way he did the pumpkin to dive it depth and dimension. I used some Chit Chat words from the Holidays collection as well.

SDC220-Bright Colors

It's Carol's turn to hostess at Stampotique Designers Challenge and she wants us to use bright colors. So bright she will get!

I started by using Dyan Reaveley and Dina Wakley paints to a tag which I applied with a palette knife.n Once dry, I applied some more paint thru a stencil and also used a dotted stamp for some more added bright color. Then I stamped Roc Nicholas' Artiste Block twice (I needed two "I's!)  and used Dyan's Spray Inks to color in the letters I needed. Since there is no "L" and "F" in Artiste, I made my own! Then I stamped Dog and also colored him with Dyan's Spray Inks.

SDC 219 Scary Confusion

It's Wednesday, so that means a new Designer Challenge at Stampotique.
Arwen is our hostess this week and she wants Scary Confusion. 

Bird Lady has turned into a witch, and I'm sure a Good Witch, for this week. She's replaced her bird in the pocket for a bat and has a fun witches hat instead of her usual knit cap. There's a few spiders milling about and some friendly ghosts have come to join the party as well.
