Art Deco Wedding at the UnstampaBelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is To Have & To Hold (Wedding Bells or Engagement or Anniversary), with the optional twist of Art Deco Glamor. You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And remember, no stamps!


I made this card with Karen Burniston’s Pop it Ups Accordion dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used the font Dyer Arts and Crafts by Typo-Graf.




Be sure to check out the fabulous projects by my teammates the UnstampaBelles this month!

Pilin' On the Boozy Snacks

The themes this month at Pile It On are Beverage and/or Food. You can choose one or both themes, and you may enter the challenge as many times you like, as long as you are inspired by at least one other Challenge theme. We're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, and I used their Frame It - Red Wine digi stamp to make this shaker card.


I used two of my favorite food related papers to make the background. I added some pretty washi tape to the bottom, along with a scrap of gold ribbon and a swizzle stick from Southwest Airlines. For the shaker, I printed the Bugaboo image on regular cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. For the background, I used rubbing alcohol and a towel to create texture after coloring it with a Copic marker. I printed the sentiment from TLC Creations onto a transparency. I filled the shaker with microbeads and glass beads and tiny fruits from Queen and Company. I used black fun foam to pop the frame. The base card and frame are a double-sided paper. The tiny glasses in the top left corner are from a Memory Box die set.

Ecology at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Ecology/Environmental/Conservation.


The text was made using MidnightConstellations by Sharasfonts. I cut it on light blue and Rainbow HTV and used my heat press to make this t-shirt for my niece.

Pilin' On the Hot Beverages

Our new theme at Pile It On is Beverage. You may enter the challenge as many times you like, as long as you are inspired by at least one other Challenge theme. We're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.

My Mom gave me this "Special Tea" Heartfelt Creations rubber stamp set forever ago, as in years, and this is my first time inking it up! 





On the inside, I used the pop-up mechanism from the Cup Pop Stand die set from Karen Burniston/Elizabeth Craft Designs, but used a die/stamp set from Heartfelt Creations for the pop-up piece (more recent acquisition, but not by much, and I use this all the time.) The mother's day sentiment is a rubber stamp from Fiskars. For the pop-up piece, I used a a quilted paper piece I made eons ago that was just waiting for a good home!

Sweet Birthday Wishes at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Birthday.



I used the Hanging Charm Pull Tab die set from Karen Burniston/Elizabeth Craft Designs. The papers are from Authentique. The Cupcake stamp is from Pinkfresh Studio, and is part of a super-cute set I won at the Mesa Stamp & Scrapbook Expo. The silverware charms a from Bead Landing, and the pretty seam binding is from Paper Sweeties. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of printable acetate in StazOn ink, and colored in on the rough side with Copic markers. I added some Stickles to the frame, and put a message section on the back.
