Our challenge this week is this great sketch from our DT Coordinator Jessie Rone. I enjoyed this sketch because it gave me the opportunity play with a combination of designer papers which isn’t something that I usually do. I’m more of a clean and simple with layered images kinda girl lol.
I made this card for Kylie’s music teacher who put together an AMAZING music performance! Every year he and his wife put so much hard work into the performances and this year was no different. The adorable musical was circus themed and as soon as the show was over, I just knew I had to make him a card using this image and sentiment from the new stamp set Jungle Out There. This set will be released this Saturday evening but you can see more samples using this set during the Blog Hop Challenge that will take place this Thursday on the TSG Blog!!
For the last few weeks, I’ve been playing around with my TwinTouch alcohol markers but I’ve gone back to using my Prismacolor pencils and I think that even though this coloring method might take a bit longer than markers, I prefer the look of them in my art work.
Stamps: Jungle Out There (will be released this Saturday 3-31-12)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Paper: Lime Twist by MME, scraps from my stash, Vanilla, Early Espresso
Accessories: Corner Rounder, Sewing machine, Colored Pencils, Edge Distressor, Corduroy brads, dimensionals, Nestabilities, Natural colored twine from RibbonCarousel.com (colored with SU marker)

Today I have a card to share using another one of the TSG(again!) stamp sets that are being featured this week. I have to tell you that if I am in a mood to just color or am maybe trying out a new coloring medium that I’m not used to, I ALWAYS reach for this set to practice with!! The flowers and vine images in Flowers Of Happiness are some of my very favorite of all of my TSG stamps and the best part? This set is on sale this week for only $20.40!

I am so happy that Spring is officially here (even thought you might not think so looking out *my* window lol) and to celebrate, I’m sharing two cards for this week’s TSG Challenge which is to create an Easter and/or Animal themed card.
One of my favorite things about the two stamp sets I used today were actually designed so that they can work together! For example, all of the images that the bunny can ‘hold’ can be used with the teddy bear as well and vise versa!
My first card was created using the Hunny Bunnies stamp set (on sale for only $12.75 until this Friday!). I absolutely LOVE this adorable stamp set, how cute are those little chicks?? I was having a hard time deciding which sentiment I wanted to use thought because I really liked “Oh for peeps sake…” that also comes in this set
Stamps: Hunny Bunnies
Paper: Kraft, Vanilla, White
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Pear Pizazz, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Sewing Machine, sponge, dimensionals, pear pizazz marker, old olive marker, edge distressor
For this card, I used the mini set Bear Hugs (on sale for only $5.95 until this Friday!!) This card is super quick and easy but it still needs a little something… hmmm….
Stamps: Bear Hugs
Paper: Kraft, white
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, OMS, Sponge

Hi everyone and happy Friday! I have a fun card that I made for this week’s TSG Challenge which is to create a card with a ‘hidden surprise’. The hidden surprise in this card is that it is actually a box! You can find the fabulous tutorial that Beate created for this project right here on SplitCoast Stampers. You can also get the details about this challenge and find out how you can win a TSG gift certificate simply by playing along by heading over to the TSG Blog.
I had intended on using this for Kylie’s golden birthday card (her birthday is April 9th) because she loves to bake but she just informed the other night during dinner that she wants her special birthday card to use images from the stamp set Tastes Like Chicken and have a goat eating flowers out of the toilet. Hahahaa…. this kid takes after her mama!
Here is what the card looks like ‘closed’
Then you slide off the ‘belly band’ and the card opens up to this adorable box. How cute is that?! I absolutely love the sentiment that I used on this card because the is what my girls say to me every night while I’m cooking dinner. Crazy kiddos'.

This week our challenge is brought to us by our new Trendsetter, Kim O'Connell! She has challenged us to make Tags!! Tags are great for gift giving, or adding to a card base to make a card…the skies the limit!
There is a prize for participating in this challenge so make sure you head on over to the TSG Blog for all of the details!!
Kylie’s Golden Birthday is coming up in about a month so I’ve been thinking of different ideas that I can use for her special card. I absolutely love making tags and I thought that the new Numbered Days stamp sets would be the perfect size to use!
And here is a quick and easy card I made using the tag as the focal point. I used some gorgeous brown seam binding from RibbonCarousel.com to ‘tie’ it all together. Get it?? Tie?? Nevermind……
Stamps- Numbered Days
Paper- This & That 6x6 paper pad by EP purchased from RibbonCarousel.com, vanilla cardstock, Early Espresso cardstock

I used a combination of different stuff from my stash to create this page but here are some things I wanted to point out-
*The gorgeous crochet flower was made for me by my sweet friend Pickle… uh.. I mean Danielle Lounds. She gave me some well over a year ago and I’ve been hoarding them this entire time.
*The buttons, twine and ribbon are from RibbonCarousel.com of course
Thanks for stopping by, make sure you visit our newest Trendsetters and welcome them to the TSG Family!!
