Samantha Walker Christmas Release-Holiday Magic!

I hope you've enjoyed the last 2 days of our JustRite/Samantha Walker blog hop!  It was so much fun to see what everyone created from both teams! We are going to continue showing you more Samantha Walker with some of her brand new releases!  Today's set is called Holiday Magic.  It is such a fun happy set!  I was so inspired by the coloring on her packaging that I used it on my card.  I stamped the Christmas tree 4 times with some slight overlapping.  
I added coordinating pearls and stamped believe in black.  I added a bit of silk ribbon, twine, and jingle bells.  But for me this is pretty much a CAS card! ;)

Here is the entire set! Super cute right?
Be sure to visit our DT and see what they've created today!

Have a great Saturday!!!

Samantha Walker Blog Hop Day Two!

Good morning and happy Friday to you!  Today is day 2 of the Samantha Walker/JustRite Blog Hop! 
Today's card uses a fabulous background stamp called, Fragrant Garden. I wanted each part of the stamp to be a different color, so I used my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and used the "Direct to Rubber" technique.  The beautiful part of these markers is once you are done applying your color, you can remoisten them by "huffing" on them. 
For my card I stamped the image twice and hand cut the frame portion to create a shadow box effect. I added a few sequins to pull the orange color out a bit.
I used the Bitty Blossoms Spellbinder's dies to create my orange flowers and added the little blue posies from my stash. 
Here is the set I used. :)

Samantha Walker Blog Hop!

Good morning! What an exciting day today is! The JustRite gals have teamed up with the gals from the Samantha Walker Design Team to highlight Samantha's gorgeous stamps! For my card today, I used Samantha's Pattern Basics set.  I stamped the diamond pattern twice using Versamark ink and embossed it in white on kraft card stock. I used my Tim Holtz Distress markers to color each diamond in.  A trick when coloring each diamond is to outline the left side of the diamond, then take your water brush and "drag" the color into the center. This gives areas of dark and light to add depth to the card. I cut out the diamond shape  and adhered it to another panel of kraft card stock.  The edges were inked in a bit of white. 
Pearls were added to dress it up a bit.  I also colored a Recollections wooden flower with the markers, hand cut 3 leaves, and added that to the sentiment.  Speaking of the sentiment, the thank you is from Samantha's French Frills set.  It was also embossed in white and cut into a strip to add to the the front of the card. 
The inspiration continues with both design teams!  Be sure to hop on over to these talented girls' blogs!

A Card About Lettuce?

Lettuce as the focal point?  Yes, I say!  How about for all of those Green Thumbs in your life?  Perfect right? ;)  See there is a card for everyone!
Now let's get serious for a moment......I needed an excuse to color with my Inktense pencils again.  And yep, lettuce fit the bill. It is part of the Crafty Secret's Vegetable Digital Images. I colored in layers with green, brown, and a hint of yellow.  I printed the lettuce image 3 times and cut the top two layers and adhered them to the bottom layer with dimensional foam circles.  I curled the edges up a bit and painted it with gold Stickles. The designer paper is part of the Crafty Secrets's Vegetable Garden Digital Papers collection. 
I added a bit of seam binding tied with a button.  I used a couple of Maya Road stick pins as a finishing touch. 
Take a peek at my side bar and you will see that on the 27th and 28th JustRite and Samantha Walker are teaming up for a colossal sized blog hop! It's one you are not going to want to miss! Prizes and inspiration galore! 
I am off to see my scrappy gals today for a little girl time!  
Have a great day my friends!

Moxie Fab-Tuesday Trigger!

Talk about being under the wire!  I have 38 minutes to get this posted for the Vintage Vagabond Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger!  I really wanted to participate and had to photograph it at night with my light box to make it in time! 
Here is the Tuesday Trigger inspiration photo.
I love the black and white with the gold accents. 
I decided to work off of that for my inspiration.  I used black and white paper from SU! I cut 2 large feathers using my Silhouette and glittered them.  I matted the feathers with a gold scalloped circle using a Spellbinder's die. 
I had this pretty Prima flower in my stash and thought it would be perfect to tie it all together.  I added a bit of twine and a few gold sequins and rhinestones to finish it off. 
Have a great night!
