Rebus–Blog Names

Rebus Sept2012 BlogNames

Hi all,

It is time for another rebus swap to share with you all. This time round our theme is Names of Stamping Blogs. Now I have made it easy for you all for at least one of the rebus I have done here … the first one, I am sure you will be able to work out what blog that is for. As for the rest they are all on my side bar, however some are in the person’s name on my sidebar rather than the blog name.
If you would like to solve it, why not post a comment to this blog post with your answers. I will let you know what the correct answers are next time I post a rebus card here.

How did you go working out the solutions for my August Rebus which was “T” Words…. here are the correct answers for you to check how you did.
  • Tendency
  • Thinkable
  • Tart
  • Toucan
  • Thumper
  • Tinkering
  • Thimble
  • Timberland
  • Trademark
How did you go?????????
You can find all my past rebus cards here.

Dropping By ….

C4C156 DroppingLeaves wm

Hi everyone,
It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week Andrea Murdock brings us her final  challenge for September.

Our challenge is to use Leaves on your card.

I pulled out a couple of old stamps for my card this week, I love these cute little mice from Ann-ticipations playing around with leaves. I also used designer paper that has leaves on it, so I think I covered this challenge Smile.

Here is the inside of my card, I used the other mouse that I mentioned earlier (I said mice) to the lower right hand side. The sentiment is computer generated as I wanted something that would suit the images and I didn’t have anything.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

Stamps: Mouse on Leaf; Parachuting Mouse – Ann-ticipations; Happy Birthday – Paper Pretties
Paper: White; Brown; Green; School Daze DP – My Mind’s Eye
Other: Black Ink; Oval Nestabilities; Brown Brads; Oval Punches; Brown Twine;  Foam Tape; Copics

To the Birthday Girl!

Lulu Twisted wm

Hi all and happy Friday!

Today I have another Twisted card to share with you all … these are so much fun to make. If you missed see Kelly Gettelfinger’s video last week you can see it here.

This time round I decided to hide the front pocket completely by covering it up with a single piece of designer paper. I used Kraftin Kimmies Birthday Lulu stamp set for my card, she is such a cutie don’t you think!

Just Sitting Here!

CCEE1239 Swing wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess, Sabrina brings us the last of her September challenges.

Sabrina’s challenge was to make your own designer paper/s, using any technique you like.

I must admit I am a big fan of designer papers and most times when I create a card I grab some designer paper to use with it. So when I get a challenge where I can’t use designer paper, I have one of those arghhhhhhh moments LOL! There are so many different techniques out there to use that it took me a while to decide just what I was going to do for this challenge, but finally I decided to use some of my neglected embossing folders I keep buying which is what I did here.

I used one of the New Spellbinders double sided embossing folders and used the Inked Embossing Folder technique. I dabbed the embossing folder with my ink pad before putting my card into the embossing folder and then running it through my big shot. I did this for both the white and red pieces of card that I used to create this card.

I thought it was about time I started building up my pile of boys cards as it won’t be long before I need to give these all away to my family for Christmas, so I used Sitting Luka from La La Land Crafts and sat him on his tyre swing.

CCEE1239 Swing2 wm

Here is the inside of my card, as you can see I added the tyre swing again and added the “Thinking of You! sentiment to the inner part of the tyre swing, this sentiment comes with the Luka image I used on the outside of my card. I also added the Happy Birthday sentiment as I wanted to make this a birthday card.

Don’t forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Hoot Hoot Hooray!

MFTWSC91 OwlCostume wm

Hoot Hoot Hooray … so what am I hooting about?????? Well because it’s Wednesday which means it’s time for this week’s Wednesday Stamp Club sketch over on the MFT Stamps Member Forum of SCS. It’s another fun sketch!


This week I grabbed MFT Stamps Pure Innocence Owl Costume stamp set to create my card. I guess it’s no big surprise that I can put this set down LOL! This time round I paper pieced the girls owl costume using designer paper. The girl is stamped and layered using the Die-namics Rectangle Stax 1 & 2.

I used the Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX for the piece on the left hand side of the card. Along the edge of the panel on the left I also used the Die-namics Postage Stamp Edge. All my designer paper pieces etc are layered using the new Steel Grey Cardstock, I am loving this new color. And along the bottom right side I have used 3 of the Steel Grey Buttons.





MFTWSC91 OwlCostume2 wm

Here is the inside of my card, I stamped the PI Owl Costume girl again at the bottom of my card and added the birthday sentiment from the set. Along the left side I added the Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX .

Mushroom Lane

CHF10 MushroomHouse wm

Hi everyone,
It’s time for another CHF challenge over on the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog .

This week our challenge hostess is Holly Brown who has challenged us to use TWINE on our projects? Hemp twine, bakers twine, or even linen thread can be used.

This week I have used Cornish Heritage Farms #9 Mushroom Lane Digital Stamp. Yes I did use this for the last challenge too, but I had actually colored this one in to use last time when I discovered it wouldn’t fit on the card I had made so had to print another out smaller. As this one was already colored and layered I didn’t want it to go to waste.

CHF10 MushroomHouse2 wm

Here is the inside of my card.
