Club Scrap Oopsie Daisy Bloghop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Oopsie Daisy Blog Hop.  If you got here from Annette's Page you are in the right place.  If you got here some other way and would like to go back to the beginning of the blog hop go to the Club Scrap Blog here. I subscribe to the Club Scrap Digital Kit, the Art Nouveau StampClub Stamp Kit,  Unmounted Borders and Backgrounds Stamp, and the Embellishment Pack.  

The digital kits come at the first of the month so I played with my digital kit first.  I followed Ron's advice on the Club Scrap Creates blog and made my own digital embellishments using my digital kit and the Panstoria Artisan Software and then printed them out.  Then when my Club Stamp Kit arrived I used it, the Embellishment Pack, and my digital embellishment to create this hybrid card.



The black embellishments cutaparts have a gorgeous shiny copper print on them.  I loved them!  I also loved the rainbow color ribbon I used on the larger embellishment.  The Club Stamp kit came with a package of copper brads and some gorgeous black ribbon too!  This kit is so gorgeous!  

Thanks for joining us on the hop!  Next up is Wendy Bellino.   If you want to go back to the beginning of the blog hop go to the Club Scrap Creates blog here.  

Happy Crafting!

Challenge 6 is on JoAnn Ross' blog (who is a great author also).  She asked us to make two cards, one Christmas and one Winter type card.  

I used my Envelope Punch Board to make these cute little file folders.  I am also entering these file folders in the Moxie Fab World Wonderful Words Challenge.

OWH Virtual Cardmaking Party #1

This weekend Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Cardmaking Party (VCMP).  There's 5 challenges scheduled every 2 hours throughout the day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Lots of goodies to be given away if you play along.

The first challenge is on Sybrina's blog asking us to use an OWH Sketch and make his and her cards.  Here's my take on this challenge.

I used OWH Sketch #122.  The masculine card has a "Rusty Truck" image from Stamper's Best and tire tracks from Tim Holtz Road Trip stamp set.  DSP is the Paper Studio "The Great RockIsland Route."  Feminine card is all Graphic 45 French Country and I flipped the sketch.

Back with more later!

Club Scrap Picnic Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Picnic Blog Hop.  If you got here from Annette's Page you are in the right place.  If you got here some other way and would like to go back to the beginning of the blog hop go to the Club Scrap Blog here. I subscribe to the Club Scrap Digital Kit, the Art Nouveau Stamp, Club Stamp Kit,  Unmounted Borders and Backgrounds Stamp, and the Embellishment Pack.  The digital kits come at the first of the month so I played with my digital kit first.  I use Panstoria Artisan Software for my digital scrapbooking. This time I used the QDDL (Quick Drop Digital Layouts) along with the digital kit to create my page.  



When my Club Stamp kit arrived I created this card from the cute stamps and paper in the kit.

The embellishment kit came with this great lettuce-like ribbon so I used it for the hamburger. I used diamond stickles for the sesame seeds on the hamburger.  I heat embossed the lemonade glass with clear EP to give it a sparkle.  I used black soot stickles for the watermelon seeds and orange marmalade stickles for the cheese on the hamburger.  The pink satin ribbon from the embellishment kit grounds the hamburger.  The sentiment was printed from the digital kit.

Thanks for joining us on the hop!   If you want to go back to the beginning of the blog hop go to the Club Scrap Creates blog here.  

Happy Crafting!

NBUS Challenge

One of the funniest blogs on the block is djkardkreations by Darnell J Knauss.  If you are not reading her blog you should be just for the sheer entertainment!  She's hosting a NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff) challenge to celebrate 500 followers.  Here's my entry into the challenge.


So I had these two vintage style stamps from Stampin'Up for a while now and this was the perfect time to use them.  The background stamp was a stamp wheel called Shop Around (retired).  I am not enamored with stamp wheels so I unmounted it and used it on a stamp block.  The telephone and sentiment are from the Timeless Talk Stamp Set.  It also has a cute vintage record player and bicycle.  I also used NBUS Really Reasonable Ribbon on the card too.  

I hope you take the time to visit Darnell's blog and join in her NBUS Challenge #1.


Happy Crafting!
