Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

I was inspired by the recent sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping’s blog #225 and the Shopping Our Stash challenge #86 to use our oldest ribbon for this card using Tweety Jill’s collage papers and stamps.

Tweety Jill


The 3 Valentine’s ribbons are AT LEAST 3 years old, maybe older! I got them at Michael’s on clearance one year and have not used them up yet. Fun challenge at SOS!

I’ve started working on some Valentine’s projects using Tweety Jill‘s collage papers and stamps. Her stamps are such a great collection of vintage images that you can really have some fun with them. Here is just the start of a slew of Valentine’s projects – cards, ATC’s and tags!

Tweety Jill I used the Just Add Ink #150 sketch for this card and stamped the main image using markers colored on the stamp instead of ink to meet the CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC87 this week.


I’ve been working with Tweety Jill‘s Halloween products – Vintage Halloween Collage Pack, Vintage Halloween Paper Pack, Halloween ATCs Paper Pack, Design Elements Rubber Stamps, Trick or Treat Rubber Stamps and Vintage Halloween Rubber Stamps. You can purchase them from Tweety Jill herself or Marco’s Paper.

This project also fit the Simon Says Stamp EERIE Inspiration Challenge!

Jill has videos on her blog and classes in the Tampa area, so check them out for fun in person with Jill!

Isn’t she so carefree just skating away? I LOVED rollerskating as a kid AND as an adult. What fun we had!! My sister was roller queen, but I wasn’t half bad 🙂

This card is for the Some Odd Girl sketch challenge and for the Play Date Cafe’s color challenge PDCC151 this week. I used a couple stamps from The Stamps of Life for the sentiment.

For Copic colors, I used E000, E00, E11 for the skin; E29, E39, E49 for the hair; YR15, YR16, YR18 for her sweater & scarf; R35, R37, R39 for her vest, socks and wheels; G20, G21, G24 for her pants and G0000, G000 for the skate highlights.


Have a great Saturday!
