About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

Christmas Greetings

WOW!  It's been so long since I posted that I almost forgot how.  But let me tell you, I've got a tag that used almost everything in my craft room.  This was the Christmas card (or tag) I made for the Gigglers this year.  I made a different (easier one) for everyone else. 
     I started out with a 8 X 4 tag from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Linda (the owner) has the best prices around, but due to her moving her home, she's closed until 1-20-13.  But mark your calenders because when she reopens, she's having a discount on her already low prices. 
Looks start at the top and work our way down.  The background has been done in Distress inks of Chipped Sapphire and Stormy Sky.  I distressed the border with the Tim Holtz Distressing Tool and sponged with Distress Vintage Photo.  Then a spritzed it with Sparkle.   The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I LOVE their stamps.  Using a blending tool I colored the die cut tree with DI Pine Needles and Vintgage Photo. 
On to the roof!  This is Tim Holtz's Rickety House die.  I embossed it with Distress Embossing Powder which gave it a sandpapery texture.  I used the plastic packing that came with the die to used on both the upstairs and downstairs windows.  For the upstairs window treatment I used some lace and some material I had in my material box.  Right under the roof I used some Paper Studio pearls for lights.  
For the house itself I used the TH Bricked embossing folder, first coloring the debossed side with DI Black Soot.  Using a blending tool I rubbed on Fired Brick and then I used the ink pad directly on the embossing giving it a two-tone brick look.  The wreath is TH Movers and Shapers die cut wreath using TH Coreordinates paper.  I then embossed it with SU Square Lattice ef, and sanded it to show the core.  Next was some Distress Peeled Paint Stickles.  The bow (from the same die set) is SU Cherry Cobbler and Distress Rock Candy Crackle Paint.  Besides the clear plastic in the window, it also used cardstock with DI Squeezed Lemonade.  I didn't want you to see right though the house.  Right?  The deer I found at the Fairy Garden center of the Country Cupboard in Lewisburg, PA.  An EK punch supplied the snowman, with Shoestring Paper frosting for the body and nose.  The hat is made of felt, of course.  His scarf, a scrap of material.  The snowy hill in the back is SU Shimmery White. 

A TH die made the fence with DI Vintage Photo for color.  Some Flower Soft Polar White for the frosty tips and a light strand from a mini tree decoration section at Hobby Lobby.  The name plate was done on my computer and punch with my SU small oval.  I used a couple eyelets and jump rings to connect the red and white bakers twine from SU. 

For each giggler, I typed their last name for the sign and their house numbers beside the deer to make it personal.

Yellow Polka-dot Bikini

This is a card that I did for a "Twisted" Swap.  I got the old women in a bathing suit stamp awhile ago, and when a saw the young woman in a bathing suit, I knew I had to have it just for this purpose.  The young one is a Loralle stamp, but I can't find the other one to know who made it.  And wouldn't you know that it is the one stamp that I didn't copy and put in my inventory book.  I'm thinking it "might" be Art Impressions, but I went online and can't find it there.  SORRY! If anyone knows, please let me know.  Or course, that doesn't mean I'll find the stamp itself, unless you could help me there too...........

A bunch of Thank You's

In the spring of 2011 I retired from my job of 36 years.  The gigglers threw me a wonderful party and I wanted to give them each a thank you card, but wanted each to be different.  They all have the same base, SU dsp, ribbon (except for one), and SU thanks sentiment.

SC410, Seaside Memories

Happy Saturday.  Today I did a card from SCS Sketch Challenge SC410.  Taylor made a cute sketch but for some reason it took me quite a while to come up with something.  I'm in one of those creative slumps again.  Anyway, I just got a new stamp set off ebay by Crafty Secrets called Seaside.  I just love that little tot on the shore.  So I went from there.  Using a Tim Holtz water brush, I filled it with Dove solution.  (I saw it on youtube once and wanted to try it)  I put Distress ink right on my craft sheet and used that as a pallet.  I also used Glossy Accents on the hat, shovel and pail. 

 The idea of a net was from my friend Lou Ann (Crooker Stamper)  from her scrapbook LO Catch of theDay.Thanks Lou Ann!

Hey, How Are You?

[WMSC122%255B5%255D.jpg]     Hi!  Today is my birthday.  Happy Birthday to me!!!!  I've had a dinner with my family, tons of well wishes on facebook, and next week is the Gigglers monthly birthday dinner and this month is MINE!  So lots of beautiful cards and great friends and lots of giggles.

     My card today is for two challenges.  The Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge#122 which is a cute sketch by Renee Lynch.  And this sketch works right into Joan's Challenge at SCS for Layered Scallops in TLC402.
     This card is made with just blue and white with a little brown sponging.  For my scallops I used both a punch and a die.  I learned how to do a double bow at the CKC in Lancaster this year, but I tried a triple.  Hope you enjoy it.    And for all of you that are still up, the election is over.  Which means tomorrow I will not have 15 calls from faceless recordings, elected officals recording, and few real people, and a really exciting call from Clint Eastwood.  Although I would probably have voted for anyone that would promise not to call me in the afternoon when I'm taking a nap because I have a cold.

WMSC121 "I Do"

[WMSC1214.jpg]I'm trying to get back on a roll of making cards again.  And what better way than doing the same sketch challenge twice.  I really like this sketch by Jeanne Jachna for the Waltzingmouse Challenge 121.  Instead of the two panels on the left side of the sketch, I used two adorable love birds from The Greeting Farm. 

I did want to show off the brides beautiful dress and flowers.  Her dress is made of Diamond Stickles (how's that for ironic?)  and her flowers were from Cotton Candy and Lime Green Stickles.  And check out that rock!!!!  Zva can sure make a Wedding Bling.  I mean Ring.  They can sure dress a bride!

WMSC121 Get Well Shirley

[WMSC1214.jpg]One of the Gigglers has been in the hospital for a fews days and, of course, the Gigglers plan on loading her mailbox with cards.  As usual, I needed help with the design so I checked out this week's Waltzingmouse Challenge 121. Jeanne Jachna has come up with a cute sketch that I thought was perfect. I did change the two panels on the left to be one piece of dsp with Zva Pearls to go down the middle.

CC398, SC408, Material Girl

Back to the SCS Challenges today with this weeks Color Challenge and Sketch Challenge.  The Color Challenge was to use Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Primrose Petals, and a Neutral of choice.  I picked Basic Black.  Dessert Option of lace.  Nice job Peggy.  With such a pink pallette, I went for a girly theme with vintage dressmaking.  The only notable thing was that I used Very Vanilla for the SU Netting block stamp with Primrose petals because I didn't have any dsp with that color.  Also I used Glossy Accents for the scissors.  Taylor has a great sketch for my card. And here's what I came up with.....

"Game Night" ATC swap

Hello everyone!  I've taken another of my creative breaks, and have been trying to organize my craft room.  Now that I've started I can't think of any cards to make.  But I do have an ATC that I haven't posted yet.  It was done for the October Stampin' Up party at the home of fellow Giggler Mary Ann.  We had an ATC swap for our group and I wish you could see them all.  The Gigglers are all so talented.  You can see a couple of them at Lou Ann's blog, and Diane's blog.  PLEASE take a look at these pint sized treasures.  They are incredible. 
This little 3 1/2 X 2 1/2 card came to me when I found a bag of 54 mini playing cards and a bag of mini puzzle pieces.  One day I decided to separate the cards by suite, only to find out that it was a complete deck.  That was the start.  I have several game stamp sets, by the pieces are too big for an ATC.  Enter Shrinky Dinks.  A plastic that you stamp, color and bake to have an image that's about 1/3 of the size.  That's what I did for the Cowboy Poker chip, Sorry game pieces, dice, and Chess Knight.  The Game Night arrow was die cut with a cute little Verve die that I had just gotten in the mail.  Love that Verve.  The checkerboard was pretty tough.  I searched for paper, material, stamps, anything with a red and black checkerboard, and nothing.  So my DH said  "Did you check the internet for a picture you could copy and reduce."   DUH!  I covered it with UTEE for a nice shine.  Last, but not least, the puzzle. 

When I poured them out of the bag I notice a couple were contacted, just like a regular puzzle.  I thought it would be nice to put a few pieces together.  Have you ever tried to put together teeny tiny puzzle pieces of a 500 piece puzzle?  It is a challenge.  But I liked it.  Hopefully you will too.  Thanks for looking.

Mary Ann's October Birthday

     Well, for the month of October we had only one Birthday Girl in the Gigglers.  It was Mary Ann, who just LOVES Halloween.  She always has a Stampin' Up party in October and between the decorations and the food you know she has a Halloween baby.  She also LOVES ATC's. (If you're not familiar with ATC's, they are Artistic Trading Cards measuring 3 1/2 X 2 1/2.  They can be traded, but not sold).  So size and content was already picked by her.  I just had to put it all together. 
     I picked The Artistic Outpost for my images.  Black was the color for the card itself.    After inking my background of the cardfront, I stamped the frame and vines/leaves.  On the frame I stamped Black Soot DI, then stamped it with Embossing ink and covered it the UTEE.  I was a little disappointed with the effect, so I used a Q-tip and Black Archival ink to add more darkness.  I sponged the edges with Black Soot DI.  Next I die-cut an oval and added the skeleton cameo, which is also embossed.  She looked a little plain, so I gave her some black pearl earrings and necklace.  A girl's gotta have her bling, right?  I then just taped it to the back of the ATC front. 
     Inside I blended color on the vanilla cs, added a die-cut spider web and a few punched spiders.  The sentiment I typed on my computer.  Hope you like it..........

F&F Love the Fall

Hi All,  Happy Fall.  Here in NE PA the mornings are crisp & clear and the leaves are turning.  What a beautiful site.  Today the sun is shining and a gentle breeze is blowing.  The fleece sheets are on my bed and the comforter makes a cozy nest.  Linda (The Funkie Junkie) over at her Frilly & Funky Challenge Blog has made a fabulous card to inspire all the play along with her Fall into Fall Challenge.  Time to mix those vibrant rich tones and the earthtones of the season.

I started by die cutting the wreath.  Then I went through my dsp and came up with an some old SU called Autumn Meadows.  I had just bought some Mini Tag Canvas Pieces and wanted to see how ink would look on that.  I thought it came out pretty good.  Next, into my bag of goodies from The Funky Junkie Boutique.  I came up with that pretty brown lace and some colorful twine (she wraps it around old brown clothespins.  It's so cute).  The two leaves laying in front of the card were gifts from Linda for an order I made.  The image is from a scrap of material from Farmhouse Memories located at 148A Harristown Road  Paradise, PA near Lancaster.  She has an incredible shop with so many cards made using material which are fantastic and quilts like WOW!  If you're ever in the Lancaster area, it's worth the stop.  Just check her hours.  I attached it to a single sided adhesive sheet and die cut it with a Spellbinders Circle.  The leaves were punched and colored with Distress Inks.  I then wrinkled them up to look better.  Add a couple buttons and a brass chicken (don't ask why) and WaLa!  Love the Fall.

OCCC Butterflies

     I am so excited.  The team at Our Creative Corner choose a card a entered in one of their challenges few weeks ago, (denim + three buttons + ribbon or twine) and I've been asked to be their guest designer this week.  Chris Barnes has come up with a great challenge for color and elements.  Using the photo on the left, make a project with those colors as well as using at least two buttons, and some polka dots. 
     I started out by looking for the colors.  I fould just what I was looking for with Graphic 45's "Little Darlings Collection".  Not only did they have the colors I wanted in a border strip with the butterflies, they had some green polka-dot paper too!
     So with a base of SU Very Vanilla, my first layer was the polka-dot dsp.  Add to that the butterfly border with a little lace trim.  So what do you put on a card with a butterfly border?  Why, butterflies of course! 
     So I got my SU Papillon Potpourri stamp set and the matching SU Butterfly punch.  I embossed them with SU Black embossing powder and colored them with Tim Holtz Distress Inks of Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, and Mustard Seed.  I then spritzed (is that a word?) them with Tsukineko Sparkle Shimmer Mist, for a little sparkle on my wings.   I couldn't find any buttons I liked, but a I found my never before used SU Itty Bitty Buttons.  So, armed with my already  inked TH Blending Tools, I colored some cs and punched them out with my SU Itty Bitty Punch.  For the thread I used DMC Ecru floss.  I die cut an oval from Spellbinder's Floral Ovals.  I then stamped the sentiment from Verve's "Beautiful You".  I cut it out with a Spellbinder's Oval die and attached the buttons and bow.  I then pop-dotted it on top of the Floral Oval. 

Now check on that blue link for Our Creative Corner and start having fun.  If you enter, drop me a line and let me know what you come up with.     See you next time.

WMSC115 Ho Ho Ho

[WMSC1156.jpg]Hi all!  I'm back with another sketch challenge card.  Jennifer Holmes was brought us WMSC115, and it's a cutie.  I haven't done a Christmas card yet, and I thought this would be a great one.  I used stamps from three different Waltzingmouse sets and I think they go great with each other.  My dsp is an oldie but a goodie from  SU.  And accessories from all over the place.

I have to go right now, but I'll be back in a couple hours to show and more pictures and my supply list.
2 hours later...............
I'm back home and ready to finish!


I used silver on the the presents and the brads holding up the sentiment that I pushing in a little so that the middle popped out.  I also used Encore Metallic Silver with SU Silver embossing powder for the HoHoHo and snowflakes   And what can I say about the Waltzmouse Christmas Stamps.  They are all so stinkin' cute I  used one from each set I have.

Scripture & Flourish

Hi all!  I started making this card weeks ago. It could have even been a challenge sketch.  I had the paper and the sentiment, but couldn't seem to get any farther.  Today as I was semi-tidying up I found it and decided to put on a few pearls and flourishes.  As it is only a 4 X 4 card I cut the two flourishes into several pieces and attached them.  Now my problem is that I have NO IDEA where I put the sentiment stamp, or who makes it.  If you know, please let me know.  I hate not giving credit.  Hope you enjoy it.

OCCC Grateful

Yipee!  My favorite kind of challenge...It's A Sketch Challenge.  That's right!  Chris from Our Creative Corner has come up with a great sketch.  The card also needs to be for a male. Well, it just so happens that I got a new Tim Holtz stamp set that I thought would be just right.   
The only things I did that was more than just putting a card together was that I embossed the pens with SU Black Embossing Powder after stamping them with Tim Holtz Black Soot, and I put a thumbprint on the sentiment panel.  If you haven't checked out the OCC, stop on by.  Have a great day!

     Hi!  I'm back.  And sorry to be so late with these challenges.  There's still time for both, but not long.  The first challenge for this card was Our Creative Corner's Challenge "Kiss the Card and a Twist".   I can't say I've never been kissed, but I've never kissed a stamp before.  Well, it's time for me to kiss and tell.  There are several ways to do it and OCC has a great link.  My choice was to ink a solid stamp (a Blossom from SU Build a Blossom) with a light colored ink and stamp that stamp with a non-solid stamp (I used Tim Holtz Fabulous Flourishes) after inking it in a darker ink.  It's a technique I will be using again.  The twist of the challenge is to use X & O. 
     The second challenge is Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 20.  Linda (she's the "L" in Studio L3) gives a page # and technique from Tim Holtz's Compendium of Coruisities books.  This one is page 44 in volumn 2, which is enameled stamping.  The rule is, I can't tell you how to do it (or why would Tim write the book), but I strongly suggest that if you like things Tim, go get both  1 & 2 of his Compendium of Curiosities.  You won't be sorry. 
     So without further ado, may I present XOX.
     In the first picture of the whole card you can ssee the kissing I did on the pedals.  After kissing them I punched out nine and glued their sides together  using little clamps from the hardware store.  I then flatten them out and attached two different enameled pieces.  So how pitted and cool that is.  They are also have a cool texture and I'm really liking that. 
     If you have any questions, drop me a line.  Thanks for stopping!

Sue's Birthday

     Tomorrow is the second Tuesday of the month which means the Gigglers will be celebrating all the birthdays for the month of September.  Sue is our only birthday girl from the group this month and is also the newest member of our group.  I couldn't think of anything to do, so my DDIL came up with falling leaves, falling years.  The inside of the card reads "Let's Party".   
     Well, you know how I'm always talking about getting thank you gifts from the Funkie Junkie.  She sent me the leaves.  So a big thank you to Linda.  Also, note to Linda, my next order is about ready.  I just had to color them with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.   
     The sentiment I just typed on my computer and printed on cardstock.  Everything else was just blending inks and glueing.    I hope she doesn't check out my blog until after tomorrow night.
