12 Tags of 2013 - February

Hello!  I'm back again with my tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013!  Tim did a tag for Valentine's Day, but because I'm always bringing up the rear with my monthly tags, I've skipped ahead to Easter. (Thank you Easter Bunny, bawk, bawk!). 

This is Tim's tag


and this is mine (it's a truer green IRL)

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments :)

February Calendar Journal

Hello all!  I just got my February pages finished up and wanted to share them before we move on to March!  I love all the layers I've created, so many inks and stamps!  I used Tim Holtz's Movers and Shapers hearts to cut out book text for the days.  I also used Tim's WordPlay die for 'February', then smudged around it with my black Pitt Big Brush Pen.  The arrows were created with Wendy Vecchi's Embossing Paste through a Crafter's Workshop stencil.  I love how they're translucent and you can see the stamping below.  I also used a lot of Christy Tomlinson's stamps.

I'm entering these into the following challenges:
Stampotique Designers Challenge:  SDC88  Use text
Simon Says Stamp:  Use an Arrow
Kate Crane's Calendar Challenge:  February

SDC 87: Winter Whites

Hello all!  The theme for this week's Stampotique Designers Challenge is Winter Whites.  It was a challenge indeed, as I love color.  I rather like it though.  It's simple and clean and fresh. 

I'm also entering this into:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge, White on White
Unruly PaperArts, Carte Blanche

The canvas is 3" x 3" and painted with Antique White craft paint.  The butterflies are from Studio Calico, stamped with a Unity stamp and white ink.  I painted the flower petals with my white Uniball Signo and went around the canvas edges with white paint.  The flower stamp is from Stampotique.

SDC86: Who's Your Kitty?

Oh my goodness!  I feel like I've been gone forever!  My muse has been most uncooperative as of late, but I'm so glad I was able to create something this past weekend.  And it feels good (Tony Toni Tone, anyone?).

This week over on the Stampotique Designers Challenge the theme is Red, Pink and White.  I've altered a paper mache heart.  I just love this little kitty.  (ok, all kitties :))

I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp's challenge, Have a Heart.

I hope to be back soon with more creations!
