Pink Birthday! All that Stickles Linky Party: Think Pink!

 Hi All!

Welcome to another Linky Party from All That Stickles!  The theme for the next two weeks is Think Pink!  The Linky Party ends on Friday, October 11th.


The cupcake stamp is from Tim Holtz's Birthday Blueprint Stamps.  I stamped the cupcake liner and candle on a scrap of paper I liked.  I also punched out Happy Birthday with a Martha Stewart punch.  I stamped the frosting on the same paper as the card base.  All were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  

The frosting was accented with Glam Pink Stickles.  I covered the light Pink textured paper with Ice Stickles-Crystal Ice.  I used my fingers to spread the Ice Stickles.  I could have used a brush, but I like to do it this way.  Yellow and Orange Peel Stickles were used on the flame.  I tried to use the textured paper for the frosting, since it already looked like that.  The trouble was that the ink lines were too thick as I pushed the block down.

Fibers were added along the side of the light pink paper.  I have so many fibers I have no idea where I've gotten them from.  ;-)  I added Candi dots as confetti around the cupcake.

Don't forget to join our Think Pink! Linky Party at All That Stickles!  Listed below are the sponsors for October.  Remember: "Pink, it's my new obsession  Pink, it's not even a question"  Even if pink is not your obsession, you can join our Linky Party!

I won a fantastic prize from Tammy Tutterow!

Hi All!

I'm so excited!  I knew I won this, but until it arrived it wasn't real.  Well, the box came, sooooooo...
See what came in the mail today!

I want to thank Tammy Tutterow for the opportunity to win this awesome prize!!!  I'm still pinching myself!

In case you wonder why the Rafflecopter shows my name as Karen B,  my name is taken from Facebook.  I list my maiden name as part of my last name; therefore the B.

BTW Kelly, I'm not sharing the main part of the prize!  ;-)

The 10th Doctor! Drunken Stampers Challenge : Place-London

Hi All!

Welcome to the Drunken Stampers Challenge : Place-London!  The first thing I think about when hearing London is Doctor Who!  I love the show, especially the 10th Doctor...the handsome David Tennant.  I miss him so.  Hopefully the 12th Doctor is better than the 11th.  I also think of the BBC which has so many phenomenal shows!

The Doctor Who with Tardis digital stamp is called Doo Weeeeeee Doo! and is free from MayzyArt Freebies.  I found the Keep Calm and Call the Doctor sign at this link.  I could not find any copyright listed.

I printed the Doctor Who stamp on X-Press paper and colored it with Copics.  I then fussy cut the image.  I took a piece of the Whitewash Window Pane Core'dinations cardstock and sanded some of the white off, so it looked like fog.  Some of the white powder was added to the road.

Mum's the Word! All That Stickles Linky Party:Fall/Harvest

Welcome to the Stickles Linky Party: Fall/Harvest

Hi All!

It's Fall/Harvest time at All That Stickles!  I used a mums stamp from Club Scrap.  I stamped the mums in Crushed Olive Distress Ink and used Burgundy Stickles  to cover the petals and Yellow Stickles for the center.  Burgundy Mums are my favorite-there is on my patio.The saying and cardstock are also from Club Scrap.

The photo does not do the card justice.  No matter how I photographed the mums and how many photos I took, the color is off.  The background cardstock is a beautiful paisley swirled olive.

Don't forget to play along on the All That Stickles Linky Party!  Link up your Fall/Harvest projects at All That Stickles!  We love to see what you create!

Congrats Cat ATC

Hi All!

Here is my Congrats Cat ATC!  She looks a lot like my cat Kevi.  Kevi is a tiger mix rescue and has white chest and belly.  She's 13 years old and still as lively as a kitten.  
Well, back to the ATC.  The cat stamp is from Lost Coast Designs-Party Cat Hat Set.  I colored the cat with Copics on X-Press paper and fussy cut it.  I put Glossy Accents on the hat and covered that with Tim Holtz Distress Stickles-Dry Glitter-Clear Rock Candy.  I wasn't able to get a very good picture of the glitter, but it is so cool!  I printed "Congrats"  using the font-Fontdinerdotcom-Loungy.   It's free, as are all the fonts I use!  Silver pearls and a strip of Washi tape were added as accents.

I am adding this ATC in the following challenges:

Steampunk Boot-Buttons for Drunken Stampers

I had fun making this card.  I was drawn to this stamp, Click Your Heels by Stampendous.  It came as one stamp and I cut it apart to be able to use the boot by itself or space the saying away from the boot, as I did in this card.  I stamped it on X-Press paper and colored it with Copics.   The background paper is Tim Holtz Distress Kraft Core'dinations cardstock.  I embossed the cardstock with Tim Holtz Gears Texture Fades.  The three vintage buttons are from the button box I received from my grandma years ago.  The button in front of the toe of the boot is one to that would be attached from the back.  I had to cut off the back of the button.  It was much more difficult than when I do the same with cheap metal or plastic ones.

Join us by digging out your buttons and submitting your Button creation at Drunken Stampers!  We enjoy having lots of people party with could be our next the Life of the Party!  Cheers!

Trail Break

I needed a quick card to write a letter to a friend who loves all things Western.   I had stamped the Trail Break stamp from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps quite awhile ago using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.   I found the perfect background paper, which was made to look distressed, so I decided to distress the Trail Break stamp using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I hope she will be pleased.

Whooo's Ready 4 School?

Hi Everyone!

I've made a back to school card with a wise old owl!  The Owl stamp from Dilly Beans was colored using Copics on X-press paper.   The branch is made from a piece of chipboard which was covered by the brown textured "paper".   The brown and orange textured "paper" are from Provo Craft.  I've had this a long time.  It is a very flexible textured "paper" which I have used as covers on accordion books  The font is School House Printed A which is a free font (the only kind I have).
