Anything Goes on Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central Blog

Hello Friends,


WOW,  I cannot believe the year is about to end... the time flies so fast!!!
So, before the year ends I want to show you a card that I with a Gilli Stamp for the Anything Goes Challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central Blog.


This is the 2nd time I use a Gilli Stamp and I can tell you, she is a lot of fun to color and made a card with. I picked Gilli Jeans that you can find for sale at Stamping Scrapping.

I decided to make my own background this time so I added red ink on the Sizzix embossing plate. Then I used my brand new Stamping Scrapping Desings Stamp that matches perfectly with Spellbinders Nestabilities - Beaded Circles.

My darling Gilli Jeans was colored with copic markers. I added some rhinestones from Kaiser Craft and flowers and ribbons are from my stash.

Christmas at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central

Hello Ladies,

I hope everyone is keeping well!!! 
Today I want to show you my card for the Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central which has the theme  Christmas.

I decided to skip the tradicional colors and go with another one. Check my card below:

Xmas-SSCC

This is my first time using this beauty called Tilda as Lucia…  It has been such a long time that I wanted to color her and don’t know why I didn’t yet… lol lol

Anyways, I colored her with my copic markers # R22, R05, E37, E33, E51 E000, E01,  and R20.

For the flowers I had only white, so I decided to color with copic markers R02.  I added half adhesive pearls from Kaiser craft.
Background paper is from Basic Grey Esquimo Kisses..  

I cut the rectangule where Tilda is,  using deckled rectangule nestabilities.

I hope you like my card and leave a comment!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Black Friday Sale at Stamping Scrapping!!!


Hello Ladies,




It’s that time of year again, the turkey, ham, yams, rolls, all of the good fixins’ of Thanksgiving ….. and of course, SHOPPING!

Black Friday is a tradition for some, to get up early, fight the crowds and hit the stores to pick up the best bargains possible. Why not get an early start on your shopping without even leaving the comfort of your own home?


Hop on over to Stamping Scrapping at 7PM EST Thursday evening for a HUGE sale.
Never shopped at Stamping Scrapping? Here is short bio about them:

Stamping Scrapping is a brick front and online store owned by Kevin and Cindy Echtinaw. We have been servicing our community for 10 years and the cyber world for five. Stamping Scrapping has over 6500 items in stock from buttons to Sizzix Big Shotz. We also offer special orders of items that we do not stock, if you want it we will get it! Shipping is lightning fast and our customers receive their orders within 24-48 hours of purchasing in stock items. All of our customers, stateside and international, receive the best customer service available including quick (sometimes immediate) response to emails, phone calls and even some times hand delivery 7 days a week. We have our own line of acrylic stamps, Stamping Scrapping Designs (SSD) that were created to use with Spellbinders and we are proud to be a Preferred Stamp Company with Spellbinders. We also have our own line of card scents and are the North American distributors for Bildmalarna and Gilli stamp lines. We also have several videos showcasing craft products and how to use them.

Tons of items have been marked down to make room for the new items to be released at the Winter CHA. You will find items starting at .99 and tons marked 40% – 70% off the already low discounted price from embellishments to machines.

If you want to get a head start grab a cup of your favorite beverage, pad and pencil and browse through the ‘aisles’ for those items to purchase. Stamping Scrapping even has a registry where you can add items that are viewable to all or just for you to see. When you are ready for a purchase you can purchase from inside your registry. Sounds like a great, easy way to shop to me!! Or if you prefer the good ol’ list option, you can also make yourself a list but be sure you know what the items are that you want so you can get in there and shop fast before items are sold out. Cindy always has surprises in store so you never know what you might find!


Happy Shopping!

Gift Card Holder Challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central Blog

Hello Friends,

Today is my turn to show you a gift card holder for the challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central Blog , so here it is:

gift card holder

I made a  purse gift card holder last year and I was not happy  with that one, so when it was suggested to make a gift card holder, I was quite happy because I could give another try on the purse, and this time I like it!!  Maybe I didn`t like that one because I did not use a Magnolia Stamps on it to embellish.. hehe

The image I used is called Fairydust Tilda from Magnolia Stamps and you can buy it at Stamping Scrapping.
I colored Tilda with
copic markers, cut the regular and scalloped circle with nestabilities on my big shot machine.
I added tiny pink
rhinestones around the circle and added petaloo flowers to decorate the purse!

Here is the inside of it:

inside of gift card holder

Hello Magnolia Lovers,

To color it I used my

I’m entering this card Wild Orchid Challenge with ribbons and bows.

Now, I want to invite you all to join us at the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge Blog as I mentioned on the title, we have  Halloween as Theme Challenge.

Feathering Technique for Color me Creative Challenge

Hello Friends,

Today I want to show you a card that I made for the Color me Creative Challenge (Suzanne Dean's Classes)... One of the class is feathering technique using copic markers..  It is so much fun to color following this technique..

I received this Whiff of Joy - Confirmand Melinda  image from a Dearest Friend and could not wait any longer to color in. I thought this image would be perfect for the challenge as it was my first time on this particular technique and it was large enough for the blending... hehe

Take a look at my card:


I used the following copic markers:
Dress: R22, R20, R11, R00, Y15, Y08, Y02
Wings: B12 e B00
Soes: C7
Face: E00, E02, R20
Arms: E02, E00

I added stickles on the white flower and liquid pearl on the cream flower.  Pink rhinestones are from KC.    Papers and ribbon are from my stash.  Pin I made it myself.

I'm entering this card in the following challenge:
So let me know yours thoughts about my coloring/card leaving a comment, ok!?

Many thanks for stopping by today!!

Hey Friends,

My turn has finally arrive and I can now show my cards to you.. Yes, cards.. I made 2 of them.. 
Cindy’ new celebrations stamps are so cute that I couldn’t resist to make only one card, so here is the first one:

I made an easel card for a just born baby girl…

SS1-1

Here is a closer view:

SS1-2

I colored the image & sentiment  with copic markers, pink half adhesive pearls are from kaisercraft, background papers and ribbon are from my stash.  Regular & scalloped oval shape were cut with nestabilities as they match perfectly with the stamps.

Now I want to show you a haloween card that I made with  another set of Cindy’ new celebrations stamps.
