wishing you everything good - Cabin Scene Two Panel Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

For last week's F4A310 challenge at Split Coast Stampers which is to create something to color since coloring is all the rage right now. I made a lake cabin scene using the Stampscapes line of scenery stamps so I could color the scene with my copics. The eagle stamp I messed up, but I pressed on. After coloring I decided to try something. In the art world many pieces of art are split into two...

Stamp A Stack Card #2 - World Valentine:  Class Version | Tracy Marie lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This is my favorite card from last month's Stamp A Stack (SAS). I like everything about this card and would happily give it to a loved one exactly as it was finished. However, that is not the purpose I set forth to complete. To add more to this card, I really distressed the edges of the embossed layer and took my Holtz Picket Fence Distressed Dauber to the edges.

I swapped out the...

Pink Welcome Baby Girl Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Here's my second card to fill out the baby section of my stash. This time I chose pink papers from a 12 x 12 recollections pad. I used the distressed circles die (yesterday's blue boy die was squares). I tried to keep them looking somewhat similar so ripped the paper again (so painful). I used my MISTI to set a perfect sentiment. Ah the sentiment for both cards are Stampin' Ups Teeny Tiny...

I have a card storage container with dividers that I use for my own stash as well as for selling at a few local bazaars. I actually have two, one is dedicated to Christmas cards (which I love to make year around) and the other is filled with everything else. I noticed after a couple of new babies arriving late last year that I am OUT of baby cards! I cannot have an empty section so I  put one...

Love with White Rolled Flowers | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I haven't worked with my flower collection in some time. So I pulled out my flower container and found my itty bitty white rolled flowers. I knew they were going to go on a red stitched heart. I chose a very heavy red glitter paper. To ensure my flowers would be secure on the slick glittery surface, I used Glossy Accents. I used a Holtz basic frame die from his blueprints sets, cut the frame...

White Embossed Gold Butterfly Sympathy Card

I am still churning out sympathy cards to myself when I am feeling low about the loss of Gerardo. This card is an experiment of sorts. I did an oval hole and placed a colored image behind the oval. Over the top I placed a detailed floral die cut that lets alot of that detail through. I added a blue double bow and gold butterfly for pops of color. The embossing folder is Darice, the die is...

Newton's Nook Love Card for Inky Paws Challenge #28 | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

On Friday night I created a weekend game plan of cards to make. I've been so busy with work that I was feeling a bit papercraft deprived. This was the first card I was supposed to make, however, my plans were de-railed and I did not get to making this card until tonight:) I am often distracted by the nearest shiny thing so I am not surprised. Now on to this card. I LOVE the character Newton...

Deer In The Forest Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I was remiss this year and missed mailing this card to my father in law whose birthday was 1/22. Alas it will have to go out in Monday's mail. I created an Ombre background with a masked off sun/moon and added the die cut deer in the front. I really wanted to use this Stampin up Wonderland tree cluster as I like the height on these trees over others that I have. I was VERY tempted to add...

Newton Sorry... | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I finished up my super busy work week (first Hackathon at my company, and I was the Scrum Master) and spent friday evening deliberating on crafting challenges. I decided to go with critters using Copic Markers. I took one look at my craft room and knew that before anything I needed to clean first. I ended up so tired that as soon as I was able to see my desk, I was too tired to start on my...
