Go Tag Thursday with Me!

I have loved playing along with Sandie at Go Tag Thursday since it's beginning not so long ago and now I get the pleasure of Guest Designer for this week!  Squeee with joy!  I wanted to do an "Explosion of Color" (to tell the truth, Sandie made my suggestions of lots of colors sound so much nicer!) so here are my two examples!

This one was a page of nothing but Nuance Powders sprinkled nilly dilly everywhere and let run and get all scrumptious looking as they always do!  The stamps are freebies from a magazine and I wanted some lovely blue birds but the Spectrum Noir markers just couldn't overcome the background colors so not so blue blue birds.


This one was the actual reason for the theme as I was working on a tag with this background paper by Holtz when Sandie asked for my theme.  The little fairy declaring her love with a little put up hand is by Rubber Dance Stamps and the word "love" is from Lost Coast's Designs' word set Misc. Words Set.  I finally got the satisfaction of using the key for the letter "I" from my old keyboard that I just got replaced a couple weeks ago after using it with no shift keys working for almost a year!  Ha!  Such a good feeling.  Then a little sticker for "U" and it was all done.
Hope you will show us your tags this Thursday and each Thursday (and the days in between!) we are really having a blast with Sandie's fabulous new challenge!

It's Hip to be Square at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity this Month!

Hey all you cool guys and gals!  We are going hip on you this month with our event "It's Hip to be Square" and you will not be thinking we are posing on you not one bit :)  Carmen's Veranda's Stamps and Lost Coast Designs have some fabulous square stamps and it really gets you thinking on how to use them in different ways.  I saw this Eye Chart Square  and then the Eye Chart stamp at Carmen's Veranda and had to have a way to use them together!  I even bought a pair of jeans that I knew were a size too small for the awesome tag that went with my idea (I can wear the jeans when I loose my stress weight and they were on sale for 4 dollars so I am not that bad, really!)

Some Holtz's paper and my jean's tag and some Spectrum Noir markers for a green eye and my tag was done. I even used the black cord the tag was hanging from on here so good jeans great crafting material!

Please check the  Lost Coast Portal to Creativity for all the details and information so you can participate and win!  Lots going on this month and the months to come so don't miss a thing!  And our monthly challenge is always a good way to win some stamps!

One More for Rubber Dance Stamps

You know what the drill is by now....third time is a charm, right?  Rubber Dance Stamps Challenge this month is Black and White + Your Color Choice with a twist of Love or Romance.  I made this one with the Arty Hearty Set from Rubber Dance Stamps and added my secret favorite color pink!  A love card...awwww..how sweet!

Gelatos gave a glorious pink to the heart centers and the smear across the word "Love"..now don't be reading anything into that....just artistic license I think it is called?

More Black and White with My Choice of One Color

Onto project 2 for Rubber Dance Stamps Challenge this month.  The theme is "Black and White + Your Choice of One Color with a twist of Love or Romance" a long theme but such a fun one!  Here goes some orange that was supposed to be red oh well...orange is always good :)

Seems I got this one a bit fuzzy sorry :(  


What's Black and White with a Splash of Color?

Why the challenge at Rubber Dance Stamps this month!  The theme is "Black and White + Your Choice of One Color with the optional twist of Love or Romance.  Loved the theme when I saw the design team members makes and sat down and made all 3 of my entries in less than an hour with the long lost and/or hiding Rubber Dance Stamps from June for Dream in Darkness!  Wow , what an awesome find and hour :)

This was a little cube I found in the clearance bin and it had the sentiment embossed already in white on white so a little blue Nuance Powder and some water and magic!  All that lovely blue appeared with the words and dots so clear.  The stamp I used this time as a happy couple; I gave them too hard a time last go round so now they are in love and happy!  They are from Rubber Dance Stamps and called "Nostalgia Love".

That was it for this one two more coming up back to back :) 


Tag Your It!

It's Go Tag Thursday time and it's all about "Wings" so hurry up and gets those wings stamped up and tagged up!  Here is my offering for the week using stamps by Rubber Dance and Holtz's paper pad which makes making things soooo easy :)

I added some crowns to the lovely ink bottle fairies and some words from Holtz's Chitchat pack and a bit of ribbon.  Hoping to get in in the linky in time so off for now!
