Hi there! Welcome to Day #4 of the JustRite Stampers October Release. Today several of the JustRite DT Members and myself will be sharing projects made using the Kaleidoscope Medallions set. First up is a snowflake ornament featuring a pretty image from Kaleidoscope Medallions along with a sentiment from Christmas Mini Sentiments:
After stamping and die cutting the kaleidoscope image, I applied Tattered Angels Chandelier Glimmer Glam giving it a shimmery appearance. I stitched around the perimeter and adhered it to a snowflake made using patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Collection. I finished both the ornament and card with a framed sentiment from Christmas Mini Sentiments using a JustRite custom die from Nested Sentiments Dies:

JustRite Stampers October Release Day #2 46

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 28, 2011 @ 7:00 AM | , , ,

 Hi there! Welcome to Day #2 of the JustRite Stampers October Release! Today, we are sharing samples made using Lace Borders. However, to create my project that I am sharing today, I combined Lace Borders with Old Friends and Grandma's Doilies. To change things up a bit I created a mix media canvas. I pulled out a 8" x 8" canvas and combined these beautiful stamps with paint and paper sharing with you how versatile these stamps really are. Not limited to card making or scrapbooking projects.
Before I could begin to stamp, I first painted the canvas using Gesso then using Claudine Hellmuth Multi-medium Matte, I created a collage background using patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Collection. Once the base layer was dry, I adhered the flower leaves and stems then white washed over using Claudine Hellmuth Studio One Canvas paint. The flower centers were made by stamping 3 different images from Grandma's Doilies and finished with fancy Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Jumbo Buttons. The stems were completed by stamping an image from Lace Borders:
Using another pretty image from Lace Borders, I stamped the upper right hand corner of the canvas. I love the not so precise look giving it an rustic look. What do you think? Can't go wrong with a multi-layered butterfly fluttering through my flower garden:

Autumn wishes...CR84FN39 61

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 24, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all off to a great start of the Autumn season (if you are observing Fall Equinox)! It's time again for a new CR84FN Color Challenge. Thanks to all those who took on CR84FN38 and to those who leave such sweet comments :) For the next two weeks, we will be playing with the fun colors shown below:
I was not only inspired with the beautiful "traditional" fall colors but the fall themed photos as well featured in the color graphic. With that being said, I inked up a few PTI images from both PTI Friendship Jar Fall Fillers and Friendship Jar. Note the Balsa wood label behind the jar of fall goodness? Well months ago, my sweet friend and CR84FN DT mate, Sue Lelli made a card (click HERE) featuring a Balsa wood die cut label, LOVED the look so I thought I would give it a try! I rubbed a bit of Ranger Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap on the label revealing the woodgrain.
This was my first time inking up the pumpkin and leaf image. A bit unsure how to color it, I referred to a fab tutorial that Debbie Olson shared on her blog (click Here).
Not having the same Copic markers shown in the tutorial, I improvised and substituted quite a few using what I have on hand shown in the photo below:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with Tuesday Morning Sketches:
Thanks so much for visiting today! Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs listed below. Be Sweet!

Joy To The World 38

Mona Pendleton | @ 5:25 AM | , ,

Happy Saturday! I'm typing this post before I head out the door to take Meri to her horse riding lesson. While she's off riding a horse, my sweet sister Tina & I are off riding our bikes :) Although the temps are still in the 100's here, it's cool in the 80's early in the morning ~ PERFECT for bike riding. Tomorrow, we head out of town for a mini Fall break. Do you have anything fun planned this weekend?

I made this rather CAS Christmas card featuring a few of my favorite products. I recently stumbled across the pretty patterned paper that I used to make this card in a Vintage store that specializes in Vintage home decor! It's  Pink Paislee's retired Father Christmas collection but I don't care ~ I think it is gorgeous and I am on the lookout for more!
The stamped focal point is a combination of the pretty wreath like image from Waltzingmouse Faux Fun Circles and the Joy sentiment from Say It Loud Winter Holiday. I love that so many of the Waltzingmouse stamps may be easily mixed and matched ~ giving you a lot of mileage from your stamps :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ hope you like what you see :) Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Say It Loud Winter Holiday , Faux Fun Circles
Dies: Spellbinders Standard Circles SM, Lacey Circles, Grand Calibur, Classic Petal
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Father Christmas
Other: Claudine Hellmuth Blank Canvas Studio One paint, SU ink, ribbon and button from stash
Cardstock: PTI

a season of Blessings 36

Mona Pendleton | Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 8:35 AM | , ,

 Happy Fall to all who are currently observing the Fall Equinox! It's hard to believe today is the first day of Fall when the temps are still in the 100's here in my neck of the woods! Connor & Meri's Fall Break begins today when the school bell rings at 2:30 pm! We will be heading out of town for a mini vacation at our Home away from Home :)
With Autumn on my mind, I made this card using one of my very first PTI stamp sets: Fall Elegance. I love the whimsical ~ elegant foliage in this stamp set as well as the polka dot label from Mat Stack 4. I finished off this card with a pretty purple bow and die cut Maple Leaf that was made using a die template from Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaves:
Thanks so much for visiting today ~ hope you are enjoying the first day of Fall :) Be Sweet!

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Fall Elegance, Mat Stack 4
