I love this card so much it will work for the SSC
The challenge was Nature that you'd see in the fall. I used all TAC stamps and DCWV papers.
Stampsed leaves on paper and cut out for fall colors and texture. The red leaf is embossed with
cuttlebug folder spiderweb and gold ink rubbed on surface. The coloring of the leaf pile was done with markers and waterbrush. You can get so many colors by adding water. I don't use watercolor paper so I have to keep it from getting too wet. What do ya think?

Hello my Friends...
This is my card for the SSC Challenge-Friendship Card and make your own background.
I used the distressed stripe folder from cuttlebug and also used the scorebug around the edges to match the center brown circle under the dove.
I punched 3 times to get the sentiment to fit in window, punch is from SU and a wonderful tool.
The Dove is from TAC peace set and sentiment also TAC both are retired. I thought it was too dark but Kraft makes everything kind of rustic.

Here is my first Christmas card(non-traditional colors) and my entry for SSC it had to have a tag on it! I love this TAC set Peace and the tag is a retired set also TAC. I used versamark for background and TAC Ink All-American Blue(retired). DCWV paper for the wing, tag and inner circle cut w/Nesties. The dove is stamped on inside of card and circle cut out of front. This may be my card for Christmas this year. I usually make 50. Better start now and look for more of the blue paper or may replace with dark blue circle or even white. How did I do? Have a great week!!

Paper below is perforated at top for
easy removal. The butterfly stamp is a retired set from TAC, but one of my favorites. I used resist and rainbow ink on glossy cardstock. You can't see it but the butterflies on tag and envelope strip are embossed with white and Kaleidascope EB Powders.
Have a Good Week!!!

Colored cow with primsa and mineral spirits. Added two brads, funny story here-did not have any real black brads so colored two white brads with sharpie pen. Hope you like my Cow!!

Christmas Wishes is finished for my challenge entry at SCS. The idea was in my head since Sunday and was put on paper completed this morning. The Jumbo Penguin is a Clear stamp from Stampendous and everything was paper pieced but the eyes. I stamped eyes and beak but added orange cardstock for beak. The scarf is popped up for more dimension. I am loving my background too as I brayered it with Memento dew drops in Summer sky, Lulu Lavender and Angel Pink. Stamped snowflakes with summer sky. The Christmas wishes stamps are from 2 TAC GWP's. I added glitter to snow drifts which is torn paper. I Love the way it finally looked, what do you think?

hey there kitty! My newsest card was done this morning. Paper is TAC-V900 Gentle Beginnings Stamp set is T2805 (retired) Adorable Animals. I used small flower stamp from T2638 Petal Pack and French Lilac Palette Ink, also New Canvas on edges of circle. You can not see it well, but I used a square nestie to emboss on card, hand cut square and glued paper to back. Added kitty which I stamped with TAC India Ink on watercolor paper and colored with Bic pens(cheaper than copic $10 for 24 pens at Walmart). I like the way I balanced it with the flowers. Circle and flowers are popped up using Double-sided mounting tape cut into small pieces. Another bargain; cheaper than pop-dots and lasts longer. 3/4 inches x 57 foot roll for I think $2. I've had it so long I really don't remember. Dollor store or Walmart?? Well here it is DONE!!

I finally finished my 4th of July Decor! The picture is dark cuz I only had the front door open and the flash. I used a paper towel tube cut in thirds for the firecrackers. The stamp used on letters backgrounds from TAC retired long ago but very useful. I put this Decor on the mantle after taking pix. Hope you likey!! Got some more discontinued stamps today in mail, will cut out and play this evening. Today was last day to order anything from old catty. New catalog will be be here next week as Seminar is this weekend.
I am really excited to see the new Catty and all the stamps. I have been buying stamps like crazy from TAC, reading other blogs from TAC people helps show different ways stamps can be used and the ideas are really awesome too!
My favorite blogs are http://fosterdesignhouse.blogspot.com/

Hi all, it has been awhile but I have been working on a few things and got my lastest order in and just had to get this card posted. This is for my two grandsons Ian and Owen Stavis, who live in Colorado with my daughter Kay and her hubby Skip. I love this stamp set T-2382 Girlz & Boyz. I used Prismapencils and mineral oil. Ian is 5 yrs old and Owen just turned 1 year in Feb. I know my daughter will enjoy the card more than the boys for now. But it was fast and fun to make!!!

Continuing on the sports themed cards, I have 2 grandsons growing very quickly and may need these one day. But liked the way this one came about. Using retired sets-Nothin' but net and All Season Athlete. Circles are TAC also Background builders retired also. Got a chance to use my Square Nesties for this card, love my Cuttlebug for using nesties, really easy.

Okay, this card came about as I was cutting out new stamp sets and I try to make a card from each set . I stamped the balls, colored them and then my mind went blank. But my Tom chose the words Oh No! You're that old? I added the Ouch!
What do ya think? I like plain, simple cards that are quick to make as I sell them too. Have a good day!!!

Hello to all, this is my lastest card using the Hostess Set Flower Labels.
I think I could have used lime ribbon but did not have any and it was an after thought. I made a Lime green card that is the same but says Thank You. But used watermark for background flowers and it was too light.
My Tom liked the pink better.
What do you think?
Not much to say today so leave ya with Have a good one!!

Hi everyone, This is my lastest using the Hinges TAC Hostess set.
I used Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug folder for spine and corners of book card
as it looked like snakeskin. I made the card first then had to come up
with a good stamp for center and found the perfect one. TAC Express
Yourself Set(retired). Coffee Bean Brown (Brilliance) Ink pad.
I gotta get some darker brown ink pads I think. What do ya think?
It could be sent as Congrats on new home or even newly married couple. Have a good weekend!
