Trucking Along

I inked up one of the new stamp sets at Eyelet Outlet and had so much fun with it that I made three cards!

Happy BEE day!

Today is Duel Day - the day the Dueling Darlings post this month's cards. This month we're hosted by Terry S (Divas) and Terry A (Dazzlers). They chose the theme...


After choosing the theme, each hostess puts together theme-appropriate kits and mails them to her respective team members. I'm a Dazzler, so Terry A sent me one of her kits. And WHAT AN AWESME kit it was!


The Kit contained the following items...

Images (some die-cut): Hero Arts Busy as a Bee stamped on Neenah Solar White CS with Versamark Black Ink

Papers: Paper Studio DP, SU Hexagon Hive Die used on SU Hello Honey CS, SU Hexagons Dynamic used on Simon Says Vellum, and Paper Studio Gold Doily

Embellishments: Jolee's Boutique Black Adhesive Gems, Paper Studio White Round Gems, Dress It Up Bee Happy Button, SU Yellow Brads, Paper Studio Yellow Twine, and SU Black Grosgrain Ribbon

The only thing of my own that I used to make my card was Black and White CS and some Stickles Glitter Glue (for the wings). I colored the images with my Copic Markers.

Terry A sent several sentiments in her kit, but since I give birthday cards to a church card ministry I'm always needing Birthday cards. Therefore I went with the "happy bee-day" sentiment... however I do fear they will think it says beer day. EEK! (That wouldn't be good for a church's card ministry, would it???)

Here is my card:

Be sure to head to the other Dueling Darling blogs to see their BEE creations. You'll find links to their blogs in my left side bar.

Bathroom Karaoke

I can't sing... trust me, you do NOT want to hear me! In fact, I either lip sync or sing very VERY quietly in church. I don't even sing in the shower... but I do sing back up to Elvis Presley... thanks to Sirius Satellite in Hot Sauce, my pretty red VW Jetta. Of course, I only do that when no one else is in Hot Sauce with me.

I wish I could sing. Really, I do. But... well let's just leave it there.

Maybe that's why I love this Art Impressions stamp set so much - Perfect Duet. This couple singing (I want to think loudly and perhaps even a wee bit off-key) while holding their hairbrush and curling irons that have now been transformed into microphones.

Fun stuff!

The sentiment on the inside seems so fitting!
It's from the Whatnot sentiments One stamp set from Your Next Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Supplies Used

Stamp Sets: Art Impressions Perfect Duet and Your Next Stamp Whatnot Sentiments One stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers

Papers: Recollections Black and 110# White and SU Cherry Cobbler CS and DP from a Jellybean Soup Paper Pad

Embellishments: Brads from an unknown vendor

Hello Friend

A couple of days ago I mentioned a new-to-me stamp company that I'd recently discovered and I showed the first card I'd made with stamps from that company. I also said another one would be shown soon. This is the day.

If you missed seeing that post, you can find it HERE.

The Ink Road stamp that I used for today's card is called Bella Floral. I really like this stamp set, with its multiple floral images (I only used one of them on my card), as well as a variety of words, like the "hello" on my card.

I like the swirly bling that I used on my card, too - it is from Eyelet Outlet.

The FRIEND die is from My Favorite Things, 
but I'm not finding it in their online store.
Maybe it's discontinued.

Thank You Seems So Inadequate

Thursdays are reserved for The Project Bin on my blog... and that makes Thursdays very special days!

Of course, the other design team members post on other days of the week, so you can check out their blogs to see what they make with The Project Bin stamps, too. The links are in my right sidebar.

This week I used the newest stamp set from The Project Bin - Many More. It features a variety of themes - new baby, get well, birthday, congratulations, thank you...

I loved the Thank You sentiment/s, 
so used them on my card (front and inside):

Choose to Go Turquoise

I am not color blind. I'm not. But that being said, I've always struggled with what is truly turquoise (and what falls more toward teal). I fear I may have failed with this struggle... but humor me and say that the color on this card is turquoise, okay?

Why? Because there is a new challenge at Craftaholics R Us... and its theme is...



The stamp set I used is one of my newer ones. In fact, it's from a company that I wasn't even familiar with until very recently - The Ink Road. I love their stamps and purchased two sets almost as soon as I found the company. This darling set is the Inked Jenn set.

You'll be seeing what I've made with the other set I purchased from The Ink Road very soon on my blog. *hint *hint (Come back often!!!)
