Hi! Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a great weekend! We do - visiting my parents. We’ve spent the day with games, a walk in some mighty windy weather (storm coming tomorrow!) and some crafting. My mom and I did a never ending card for a friend. Now a delish dinner of lamb and wine awaits. Yummy!!!
I LOOOOVE the sketch of the week over at Card Patterns!
And we have a great new sponsor – The Craft’s Meow
The stamps sent to me hasn’t arrived yet, stupid, stupid postal service! :( But check out the Card Pattern’s blog cause the rest of the team has used som mighty fab clear stamps from the Craft’s Meow on their cards!!!
Here is my take:
Thanks for stopping by!
Riddersholm Design is hosting a sketch challenge every week until Christmas. A perfect inspiration for your seasonal card making! :)
Here is the sketch:
You find all the infor and more inspiration from the Design Team in THIS post.

Hi all! Phew what a crazy week. Soon over, that is gooood! :)
I’ve been a bad The Rubber Café blogger, I have quite a few things to share, that should have been up weeks ago. Anyway, better late than never! I’ll start with a new card though. I got me a bunch of Warren stamps the other day – and they are super CUTE!!!!
So simple, but I didn’t really have the time but felt the urge to ink this cutie up and color him. This stamp is called Presents from Warren. :)
Next up is a gift box with the Pine Wreath.
And finally an ornament using the Winter Bird.
The stamps are truly amazing, and a little tip for European readers – I think The Rubber Café has the best international shipping around. A flat rate of $ 1.99 up to orders of 1,8 kg! Just sayin’!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hi all! Hope the weekend was a good one! Mine was great, I got tons of stuff done. Work, cleaning and some DT stuff. :)
Here are my Prickley Pear cards for this week:
I made this for one of the Cocoa Daisy Fall Crop challenges, to be inspired by a sweater. It was beautiful and I love how my card came out. I used the JOY stamp and masked the letters so that I could separate them. I heat embossed them and added some stickles on top. They sparkle. :) And the super cute Small Winter Love Birds that I use over and over again.
And here is a quick card I did yesterday morning for SCS Featured Stamper Challenge:
Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a great start of your weekend. We’ve had a beautiful day here. Sun for a few hours! YAY!
Today’s Card Patterns Sketch is a super fun one. Loved working with it! I started with making different panels, but ended up with a stamp marking the different areas of the front. A little cheating, but I like how it came out! :)
This week’s sponsor is Independent Stampin’Up demonstrator Catherine Pooler
And here is my take:
The papers and ribbon in vanilla and purple are totally gorgeous.
I pulled out my fabbie Darkroom Door stamps. They are beautiful and I use them way to seldom.
Hope to see you play with us this week!
Long title. But it sort of captures what it’s all about. :)
Nicole has made one fun and inspiring sketch to play with:
And here is my take:
All info about the challenge can be found HERE! Hope to see you play!
Hi all! Happy new Week! I’m here to share my Prickley Pear project of the week. I made a layout for a change. I love using my stamps on layouts and many of the clear stamp sets and dies are perfect design elements for scrapbook pages. Like the Oak and Maple Leafs Clear Stamps Set and Oak and Maple Leaf Die,
The photos are from one of our Sunday walks this fall. I love fall when the air is chilly and the sky is high with a sun shining from a blue sky on all the yellow leafs. This was one of those perfect fall days.
I heat embossed the leafs and cut them out with the die and then I went over them with some distress inks: Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge.
And I finished it all off with some beautiful Leaf Flourish in the corners.
The Prickley Pear blog is jammed with inspiration from the Design Team. And we will be back tomorrow with a new sketch challenge. Stay Tuned! :) :) :)
P.s. When ones team wins one of the competitions in the First Lego League one gets this happy!
Go Gold Caps!!! ♥♥♥
A while ago I got a new stamp set from Riddersholm Design. New brand for me, Aladine from France. And I must say I’m in love. The set is all about sweing and has 23 totally adorable stamps. It’s perfect for The Celebrating Hobbies Challenge over at Moxie Fab World!
Here are a couple of close ups of the super cute stamps.
Pom Pom Ribbon!!!
Totally fun! I’ll play more. I haven’t used the safety pin nor the buttons or the hanger yet! :)
The design is based on this week’s sketch over at SCS.
Thanks for stopping by!
…but I promise this is the last Halloween project you’ll see on my blog this year! :)
My boy was on a Halloween themed birthday party and not only did his mom sew him a dress (!!!!) she did cards to the two birthday girls (and was much more confy with the latter!!!)
I’m using two of my favorite new release stamp sets from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. The coffin and scull are both from the Dancing Skeleton Clear Stamps Set and Oak and Maple Leaf Clear Stamps Set. I’m also using the Dancing Skeleton Die and Oak and Maple Leaf Die.
I love how the leafs came out! I made a little tut of how to make these HERE.
And the inside:
My favorite cat!
Okidoki. That was my Monday post. :) Been down with a bad migraine since Sunday morning. So that’s why I haven’t been around visiting you. But watch out, I’m on my way! :)
Here is this week’s sketch over at Card Patterns!
Soooo much fun! I loved playing with it! And so did the rest of the DT – their cards are FAB!
Our sponsor is My Craft Spot
We got some beautiful hand dyed wrinkled ribbons and awesome bakers twine to play with. And here is my card:
Love, love, love the vintage looking bakers twine! And my new MME papers. Yummy! And the cutest kitten around! :) The stamps are both from Prickley Pear and are called Ornamental Kitty and With Christmas Goodwill.
Have a wondeful Saturday!
P.s If you want some more Prickley Pear, I'm blogging on the Prickley Pear Blog today. :)
Here is a quick card I whipped up last night while the boys were watching some junk on the tellie. They would be better off with a hobby like mine! :)
All the papers and the tag are from Riddersholm Design. Love The Day Before collection with the traditional colors and patterns!
I used this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.
And here is a layout I did this past weekend. It’s with my boy’s school photo so I wanted to keep the design pretty clean and formal. Just like the photo. (which I looove! ♥♥♥)
There are a lot of Cocoa Daisy kit goodies on this one. From different kits I think – I’m such a mess! :) I really like how the colors came out. It’s such a neat combo with the green and blue and turquoise.
I used this fabbie sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:
Back to work! Have a great day!
