Today I have another StampTangle card to share with you. It features the StampTangle Garden Heart image along with the Get Well sentiment from the Summer 2013 release by Just For Fun Rubber Stamps.
I stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock. Then I used Copic markers with an air compressor the color the image, then added more detail to the stems and flowers by coloring with the markers in select areas. I fussy cut around the image then adhered it to an embossed card front with foam tape. Add the sentiment and embellish with rhinestones.
Have you checked out theses new stamps by Just For Fun yet? Everyone is loving them at the shows that Rick and Debby have been attending all summer long. If you are in the Clearwater, Florida area this weekend be sure to stop by the one day Trunk Show being held at LaQuinta Inn Conference Center. Here is the link with all the details.

Today I have a card to share with you featuring two of the newest images from Just For Fun.
I stamped the StampTangle Border 3 and the flower from the StampTangle Cube with Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock. I applied ink directly to the border with a craft sponge. I used Momento ink in Dandelion, Cantaloupe and Tangelo working from the lightest to darkest. I then colored the flower image with Copic markers and fussy cut the image. I stamped the Good friends sentiment and die cut with oval die templates. Next I layered it up with embossed card stock and accented it with a rhinestone in the center of the flower.
StampTangle stamps are so fun to use and the possibilities are endless! Be sure to check out the JFF blog to see what the other designers are doing with these stamps.

Since my return from StampFest in Orlando the first of July I have been super busy and have neglected to post here on my blog. I went to Glen Allen, VA for a scrapbook retreat weekend then flew to TN to watch Brandon compete at the Loretta Lynn Motocross Nationals which ended last weekend. The weather was bad a few of the days he had motos. There were torrential down pours of rain which delayed many of the motos or caused them to be rescheduled for the following day. Brandon placed 15th overall for the second year in a row. Not bad considering the track conditions.
Here is a picture of our camp site under water.
It did eventually dry out but only to have it rain again but not a bad as it was here.
The race is held at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch.While we were in Hurricance Mills, TN a friend and I went on a tour of Loretta Lynn’s home place and museum. It was truly amazing to see how she went from rags to riches through her singing.
This is the recreated home just like the one she grew up in Butcher Holler, KY. We then went on to the Plantation home where she lived for many years before moving to the house behind it.

It was amazing to see the kitchen from her Crisco commercial where it was filmed. The original glass was still in the windows from when the Plantation house was built back in the 1800′s. No photography was allowed in the homes but we could take photos outside. The above photo was taken by Rob Koy.
Also while we were there we learned that Loretta Lynn’s daughter, Betty Sue died and the day of her funeral the race stopped while the funeral precession made its way past the track to where she was buried at the home place.

I could go on and on about motocross and the Ranch but I will spare you all that and continue on with cards featuring the new release from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps.
Today I’d like to share a few cards I had made for the StampFest show in June. I had sneak peeked them here on the blog just before they were released.
I hope you have enjoyed my adventures in motocross and the Ranch as well as the wonderful new StampTangle stamps. JFF really did a great job with their new line of stamps.

I’m back from StampFest Orlando! I worked in the JFF booth demoing product as well as teaching a class. I met the most wonderful and amazing people from all over the globe. More on that in tomorrows post.
Today I’d like to share a JFF Rubber Stamps reveal from this past weekends show, StampFest Orlando featuring Stamptangles.
JFF Rubber Stamps has created a line of stamps called Stamptangles. They are easy to use and are great to color with a variety of mediums. You can use Copic markers, chalks, pastels, watercolors, direct to paper and spray mists just to name a few.
The Dragonfly image above was colored with Copic markers then fussy cut and adhered to the card front with foam tape.
The new Summer 2013 release is in the process of being uploaded to the JFF web site. As soon as they are uploaded I will include links to all the images that I feature here on my blog. Be sure to Like them on Facebook as well as follow their blog.

Today I have a fun card to share with you. It features JFF Rubber Stamps Funky Toucans from their Spring 2013 release.
I stamped the Funky Toucans with Momento Tuxedo Black ink then colored them with Copic markers.
I cut and embossed them with Spellbinders Classic Ovals then inked the edges with Momento Tangelo ink then mounted them onto Floral Ovals. Add brad accents to the corners and you have a super easy card for any occasion.

We are having a great start to Spring here in NC. The weather has just been wonderful. Last weekend Brandon attended his first prom and taking pictures at the Botanical Gardens was just perfect. The Dogwoods were in full bloom as well as the Tulips, Pansies and Azaleas.
Here is a picture of him with his girlfriend Kate. She’s so beautiful and he’s so handsome. They are the cutest couple!
While he was all dressed up in a tuxedo I figured I’d better get photo of the two of us together.
On to my project.
Today I have a card to share with you featuring the JFF G3650 Hammock in Palms rubberstamp.
I stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto Cryogen card stock, hence the sparkle effect you see in the palm trees. I colored the image with Copic markers, then sponged the background with Momento Summer Sky ink on a craft sponge. I stamped one AA3635 Small Flying Crane on the upper right corner and the B3667 How great to do nothing…. sentiment on the inside of the card.
Written by Janine on March 27th, 2013
It’s time for my weekly JFF blog post! Today’s card is really simple and easy to make with just a couple of punches and a sentiment.
I punched three of each Silhouette and Shadows Butterfly shapers from patterned paper. Then I inked the edges of the silhouette shapes with Summer Sky ink by Tsukineko and shaped them with the McGill Paper Shaping tools. Layered them with foam tape for dimension. I stamped the Just For Fun Rubber Stamps Butterfly Kisses sentiment with black ink onto white card stock, then punched with the oval Vintage Label. Next, punch the fancy label from the Vintage Label punch from patterned paper and adhere the two together. I layered the white card stock onto patterned paper then using a piercing tool I pierced holes for the flight pattern of the butterflies. Add layers of pattern papers to create the card then embellish with rhinestones.
Be sure to check out the JFF blog for Easter and Spring card ideas!
Written by Janine on March 20th, 2013
Today is the first day of Spring which means Spring Break and Easter are right around the corner.
It’s also time for my weekly JFF post.
I stamped the Carrot Patch Border with Tuxedo Black Momento ink onto Cryogen card stock and colored them with Copic markers then die cut them with the Spellbinders Card Creator Matting Basics A and B sets. Next I stamped and die cut the Happy Easter sentiment with black ink onto Cryogen card stock, again using the matting sets I die cut green and orange card stock, layered them all together and added a rhinestone embellishment.
Layer an embossed panel onto green and orange card stock and finish it off with some bakers twine then add the carrot and sentiment pieces to complete the card.
I hope you enjoy this first day of Spring and may you and your family have a very Happy Easter!

It’s Wednesday and I have a card to share with you featuring the JFF Shamrock used to create a stamped background..
I stamped the Shamrock with green in rotating it to fill the entire card panel. I colored each one with Copic markers G-03, 17. I then used my Silhouette Cameo to create the sentiment. I fussy cut an extra Shamrock then adhered everything with foam tape to Spellbinders die templates.
Written by Janine on March 12th, 2013
Today, I have a card to share with you and it features the McGill Silhouettes and Shadows Heart punches to create a Shamrock embellishment.
I punched three sets of each shape, the shadow from solid green card stock and the silhouette from patterned paper. Layering the silhouette heart shape on top of the solid heart shadow, I adhered them together with foam tape. I hand cut the stem then arranged the hearts to create a shamrock. Then finished it off with a clear rhinestone in the center.

Today I have a card to share with you featuring the Just For Fun Rubber Stamps Cardinal using the sketch Linda created for us to use.
Here is her sketch.
and here is my take on it.
I stamped the Cardinal with Momento Tuxedo Black ink then colored it with Copic markers.
I cut and embossed it with the largest die from the Spellbinders Floral Ovals die templates. I cut three triangles, adhered them to the white panel then embossed everything at one time in Spellbinders Mystic M-bossiblities folder. I stenciled and inked the edges with Bahama Blue ink on a craft sponge. Adding a couple of red rhinestones and blue ribbon to the card front, I then used foam tape to adhere the image to the card. I chose not to add a sentiment on the front as I wanted the image to be the focal point.
Written by Janine on February 20th, 2013
Today I’d like to share a card with you featuring the Rivers Edges image from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps.
I stamped and heat embossed the image onto a kraft card stock then simply added white highlights and snow with a white paint pen. Using a score board and stylus, I dry embossed a border around the image to act as a frame. Then I finished it off with a stamped sentiment in Rich Cocoa and mounted it onto a white card front.
It’s hard to believe that Spring is only one month from today!

Today I have a card to share with you featuring the Just For Fun Rubber Stamps Heart Cube stamp with a resist technique.
I stamped the hearts with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then sprayed Starfish Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist heavier on the side with the embossed images. Then I used a paper towel to blot off the excess and to reveal the heart images. I just love how the embossing powder resists the misting sprays. I threaded the 1/8″ stain ribbon through the white lace and adhered it to the front of the card with Scor-tape and embellished it with a few rhinestones. Easy peasy!
Written by Janine on January 23rd, 2013
Today I have a card to share with you. It features this sketch designed by our very own JFF design team member, Linda. I rotated the sketch for my card.
I used the all the images from the Heart Cube and various inks to create a background. I then cut it on the diagonal which was then mounted onto black and red card stock. I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment on white card stock then die cut with Spellbinders™ Classic Straight and Scalloped Oval dies. Then embellished with black card stock die cut from the accent die in the Venetian Motifs set along with a few brads.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my take on this sketch. Be sure to watch for more sketches from Linda in the near future and be sure to check out the other JFF design team member projects featuring this sketch.

Today I have a card to share with you featuring JFF Rubber Stamps G2873-Rose.
I stamped the Rose onto Cryogen paper with Momento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copic markers. I cut and embossed the image using the Spellbinders™ Polka Dots #3 die template in Card Creator line. Then cut the Basics B #7 die template from red card stock layering the two together and mounting onto black card stock with foam tape.
I used the “Just because I love you” sentiment from the UMS7020-Unmounted Sentiments 3 sheet, only inking “Just because” with black ink. Then cut and embossed from the accent shape in the Fancy Postage Edge set by Spellbinders™. I used Lady Bug ink with a craft sponge and stenciled through the die prior to removing the shape from the die. I then mounted it onto black card stock, embellished it with heart brads and adhered it to the card front with foam tape.

Today is Halloween as well as the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I created a project to share with you featuring a pink 3-D hat all decked out with “Fun Flowers” made using McGill Paper Blossom punches.
After editing the cut file, I cut the 3-D hat with my Silhouette Cameo in pink and the layers in white. Then after assembling I used a craft sponge with Rose Bud Momento ink to add color the to the edges.
From pink card stock I began punching shapes from the Starflower, Buttercup, Daisy and Petite Petals to make some “Fun Flowers”. Then using the same ink as on the hat I inked all the edges of the petals. I shaped, layered and assembled them creating about a dozen flowers to embellish the hat with. I added Pine and Leaves to fill in with.
That just left adding a few goodies to the center to make it a sweet treat anyone whole love to receive!
I’m working on a similar project for Christmas and hope to share it with you shortly.

Today I have a fun card to share with you. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the Web, Spider and Happy Halloween title. I created some “fun” flowers with McGill Paper Blossoms punches-Floriano, Starflower, Starburst, Pine and Birch Leaf.
This card measures 6″ x 6″ and was made with Basic Grey Erie paper collection.
Here is a close up of the flowers. I layered three Floriano shapes, two Starflower shapes then finished the center off with two Starburst shapes with a purple rhinestone in the center of each flower. Next add a couple of Birch Leaves and Pine to each flower. I also added black Flower Soft to the spider to make him more realistic.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Been super busy this summer working on a huge project for McGill and preparing for Loretta’s. Not much time to craft for myself. Once school gets under way I will get back into my regular routine and will have more time to be in my craft room.
We just returned from Tennessee where Brandon competed at the Loretta Lynn Motocross Nationals. He came in 15th over all out of 42 riders. He worked so hard to make it to the Nationals this year. He competed in the College Boy B/C (16-24) class. We are so PROUD of him!
Here are a few photo from our week at the Ranch.
Brandon had first practice of the day and it rained which made the track muddy. Riders only get one practice per class and Brandon was only racing in once class this year. This is the only opportunity he got to see what the conditions of the track were like. The only other way the riders can see the track is to walk the entire course.
Brandon breaks out the pressure washer to get the mud off his boots and gear.
He did have a new set of gear for his first moto of the week thanks to Triangle Cycles!
Brandon and his mechanic Josh as they are heading to the gate.
Brandon ironically got the 15th gate pick and just so happened to finish 15th over all.
Here’s the line up at the starting gate.
I have a few more photos and maybe a snipet of a video to share with you in a day or two. I hope to get a few more photos from Brandon’s friends that went with us to cheer him on and experience their first motocross vacation. They had the time of their lives and we can’t wait to do it again next year!

Sorry for the image quality. My camera is not cooperating today so I took this photo with my cell phone.
On to the details. I stamped the Tread image from RB7007- Background Block 2 with black ink onto white cardstock then I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo. I used Spellbinders Die Template Sprightly Sprockets to create the accent from silver Craft Foil then stamped the sentiment B-2898- Happy Father’s Day on white cardstock and layered onto black cardstock which was die cut with Standard Circles SM and LG.

Today I have a card to share with you. It’s called a double tri-fold cascade card. A couple of weeks ago a few of us tried our hands at making the base to which we would adhere flowers.
Today I assembled the flowers and created the card. I used stamps from Just For Fun and the flowers are various shapes from the McGill Paper Blossoms collection. I began layering various flowers and this is what I came up with.
Here’s a side view which shows the cascading effect.
and view from overhead.
I attached the flowers to Tree and Branch shapes from the Tree Dimensional punch so the flowers would be able to rise above the folds of the card front.
This card was fun to make and I see many more on the horizon.
McGill: Buttercup, Starflower, Petite Petals, Starburst, Mini Petals, Daisy, Fancy Square, Straight Square, Leaf Spray
Just For Fun Rubber Stamps: B3606-May all your wishes…, UMS7015-Happy Birthday Unmounted Sheet, D3133-Branch Bouquet

I was reading Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters and came across a link to an article on how to make your own Light Tent. I headed to my local Lowes Home Improvement store and bought the supplies listed.
I made mine with 18″ pieces instead of 24″ and was able to get six per 10 ft. PVC pipe.
I’ll also use thinner sheet than this one. It was the only one I had and it’s a bit heavier than needed. I got good results but feel that the thinner sheet will let in a bit more light. Below is my first photo using my new light tent.
I could not wait to try it out as I’ve been looking for an economical way to make a light tent. I hope you will take a stab a making one of these and if you do I’d love to hear from you.

Today I have a card to share with you. It features the Stitched with Love stamp set from StampingScrappingDesigns and the Tim Holtz Sewing Room die.
Below you can see the details that make this dress come to life. I used the Swiss dot embossing folder to add detail to the bodice, then I used the Scor-Pal to add pleats to the bottom of the dress, some ribbon at the waist as well as pearls on the neckline.
This card makes me think of all the little girls who will be getting new dresses for Easter. Whether their mothers make it for them or they get to go to the store and pick it out. One thing for sure, we know Spring is in the air!

I’m back today with another card using the NEW Silhouettes and Shadows Heart and Square punch sets from McGill Inc.
I stamped the Silhouette Heart shape with black ink onto white card stock then, lined up the image with the Shadow Heart and punched it out.
To add more detail, I cut the Silhouette Square shape into quarters then glued it to the back of each Heart shape.
To create the focal embellishment, glue each Heart shape to a Star Shadow punch until there were evenly spaced.
Punch two pink and one black with the Square Shadow punch as well as white with the Square Silhouette to complete the center. Embellish with a rhinestone in the center.
I hope you have enjoyed another way to use the McGill Silhouettes and Shadow punches to create three dimensional embellishments for your cards or scrapbook pages.

McGill Inc. has just releases five NEW punch collections and they are called Silhouette and Shadows. There are two punches in each set. One is a detailed Silhouette Shape and one Shadow background shape and both are perfect for layering.
Here’s just one of the projects I made using the Heart set.
I made the background paper by punching both shapes from Fun Foam to make stamps.
Punch Shadow Heart punch from Fun Foam. Attach to acrylic block with double sided tape.
Randomly stamp Shadow Heart image with Angel Pink ink on white card stock.
Punch Silhouette Heart from Fun Foam, attach to acrylic block with double sided tape.
With the Silhouette Heart shape, go back with Rose Bud ink and stamp over the Shadow image.
To make the accent I punched the Silhouette Heart from pink card stock and the Shadow Heart from black card stock. Adhering them together with a glue pen then mounting on Stacking Square and Fancy Square punches with foam tape.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another card featuring the Silhouettes and Shadows Heart punches.
