An Expanded Design Team

I am sorry to announce that one of my DT members Barbara Washington has dropped from  posting on my blog.  I will miss her posting her beautiful artwork.  I wish you well Barbara in your new ventures.
Vicki Romaine
T he Cheerful Stamp Pad
I am so glad to be starting a new year of blogging with an expanded Design Team.  It has been such a fun year.  Just think.  I wouldn't even be knowing these wondeerful ladies if I had not been blogging.  I do not have the talent that these ladies have, but am thrilled that they accepted my request to have them on my 2012 Design Team.  Please welcome them and come back to see their creations and join in on the challenges which start again Jan 2.

2012 Design Team
I  have three  DT members returning this year.  They are Petra Berendsen, Michele Storm and Valerie Jael.  Now, I am excited to announce three new members joining my Design Team.  They are Cindy Pointe, Sharon Rogers, and Jenn Borjeson
*New Members*
Cindy Pointe
I've been a painter for over 20 years and had hesitated getting into papercrafting as I "already had enough hobbies", but my sister became a Stampin' Up demonstrator and I received lots of product by helping her out hosting a party and then letting her pay off a washer with stamps! I basically just fiddled around making a few cards now and then. Since I don't have kids I didn't think I "needed" to scrapbook. That all changed when my sisters, Mom and I created a scrapbook for my Dad's 70th birthday and I really enjoyed it. So...I made scrapbooks for my dogs! And then for trips. Now I scrap everything that is meaningful to me. A few years ago I got a Cricut to make scrapping easier and then discovered Sure Cuts A Lot. What a revelation! I could make anything I wanted from paper! Now I design SVG files that I offer for free on my blog and sell. As for painting, I still love it but I find myself papercrafting more and more. I've recently moved into multi-media artwork where I can use ALL my paint and paper supplies and am loving it!

In January 2011 I started my blog,, so that I could show my projects in paint, paper and other media. I also share SVG files, tips and techniques there.
I live in northern Michigan with my supportive hubby and bulldog Millie and am counting the years until I can retire from my day job and hang out in my studio full time.
Hi there - my name is Jenn Borjeson. I'm 40 years old and I live in Worcester, Massachusetts in the USA with my husband and our 2 kids. Trevor is 18 years old, a freshman in college - and Cassidy is 16 years old, a junior in high school. I've been stamping for 10 years now, I made almost strictly cards for many of those years but have ventured into art journaling, mixed media, and other things over the past year or two and have been having a blast with it. My latest obsession is ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) and I run my own ATC challenge blog called Wicked Wednesdays. I LOVE digi images and have amassed quite a collection! I am currently on a few design teams (Dilly Beans, Just Some Lines, Jellypark, and Desert Islands Crafts) and am an alumni designer of Michelle Perkett Studio. I am also currently carrying the pink torch as a guest designer for Amber Ink.
I work part-time at the local community college and I love to read, Stephen King is my all-time favorite author. I blog regularly at and I'm addicted to Pinterest, Facebook, and surfing my fellow crafters' blogs.
Sharon Rogers
Hi – I’m Sharon from Australia – I’ve been crafting and cardmaking for half my life! I love to make anything and everything and as well as papercrafts I like to create with fabric. I like to work with all styles but particularly love vintage and collage but I make a lot of sassy and quirky creations too. I have way too many rubber and digital stamps, paper, embellishments and creating items in general! Thanks to Vicki for having me on her Design Team and I hope I can inspire you and make you laugh with some of my creations!
*Returning Members*

Petra Berendsen
Being a bit of a craft addict I immensely enjoy anything to do with crafting - especially papercrafting, crocheting and sewing. My creations range from ATCs and cards to full 3D projects whereby I always try to incorporate some stamping, paint and paper-piecing.
 Michele Storms
I fell in love with stamping when my son was in elementary school and we got some stamps for a school project he was doing. He is now in college and a few years ago I started stamping again and got interested in mixed media as well. Now I've been blogging for a year and a half and I love the connections I've made in blogland. I'm lucky to live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband and I have fulfilling work in the public service field. Challenges are a great way to build your skills so I thank everyone in advance for joining in!
Hi everybody. My name is Valerie-Jael. I come from England, but have been living in Germany, near the Rhine, for many years. I am addicted to painting, drawing and crafting. I have been blogging for 2 years, and haven't regretted it yet. I like to use lots of photos in my art-work, and am fortunate to have lots of old family photos.

Merry Christmas from the Design Team and Challenge #32

The Design Team from The Cheerful Stamp Pad wants to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Joyous Holiday. They have posted one of their Christmas cards for you. Even though this is not a challenge with a "prize", we encourage you to enter one of your Christmas cards below so everyone can spread the "joy" and we can enjoy your card. You may also post your favorite Christmas tag, ATC or other project..
I am posting this card to send out my best wishes to everyone this Christmas.  I am thrilled to say that this card became one of the Ginger Gems on the Gingershanp Creations' Raffia challenge.  My unique raffia is red raffia ribbon that I purchased at Michaels.  The image was heat embossed with PK Glitz crystal embossing powder which looks beautiful on black cardstock.
This Nativity scene came from a Christmas collage sheet from Twisted Papers. I'm sorry to say that the sheet did not identify the artist of this scene but it looks like something from the Italian Renaissance, don't you think? I kept this simple to keep the focus on the holy family. Just some gold and red card stock and some gold stars to represent the star in the east. As we approach Christmas and reflect on why we celebrate, I hope you'll find time to join this challenge.  Merry Christmas!

This is one of my very favourite Christmas ornaments. The idea and instructions for this little gift came from Stempeleinmaleins. The idea is brilliant and it is so well explained that it is really easy to create. All you need are 12 little cones (paper: Basic Grey), a backing (Kraft card) and an embellishment to decorate it in the front (stamps: Elzybells) - and, of course, some ribbon or thread to hang it somewhere. For this project I chose to keep with earthentone colours and a tartan scheme which went well with the Kraft card and the little blings and glitter.
Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful and enjoyable Christmas, Petra. x
My card features the three wiseman, a stamp from Tim Holtz's collection, stamped and embossed on some wonderful paper from Club Scrap. The star in the corner is cut from some antique gold glitter paper using an older Spellbinders die (one of the first I purchased years ago). The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
This will be my last DT posting on Vicki's wonderful blog. I'm off to follow some personal pursuits that are taking a lot of my attention. I've enjoyed working with Vicki and the great design team, and I've enjoyed visiting the blogs of so many talented artists over the past year.
I'm sending out warm wishes to you all for a wonderful holiday season and for a happy and healthy new year.

Here is Valerie! Warm Christmas wishes from me too!
Challenge #32 - "Merry Christmas"
Take this opportunity to post your favorite Christmas card or project that you created this year.  We would love to see it.  Since postage has gotten so high, use our challenge to post your best wishes for the season.  Also, I would love for you to become a follower of my blog.

A Note From Frosty

Here is a little card I made with an image from Octopode Factory and a digital from Gecko Galz.  I colored the little snowman with Copics and placed him on  some designer paper that looked like a cold wind blowing..  I am using the cutesy card on Bella Creations challenge.

Fosty is bringing a note to everyone saying "Merry Christmas"!

A Steampunk Christmas

Here is a little Steampunk Christmas ATC I made using a Christmas tree image from Octopode Factory.  I put it on a wild background that I had gotten off the net a couple of years ago.  The little reindeer is a piece of balsa wood which has been twisted into various shapes and curves.  The 25 is for Christmas Day and it is  two Bingo tokens.

I am entering this in Wicked Wednesday's Steampunk ATC challenge.

Second Week of Christmas Greetings

We begin a second week of the "Christmas Greetings" challenge.  The greeting should be the focal point of your project.  InLinkz is the great sponsor of this challenge and they have offered a wonderful prize.  Look below at the beginning of this challenge and note what they are giving away.  Almost any blogger can use this prize.

While you are at it, don't forget to become a follower.
I did not use any particular technique on this card.  However, it does have an antique appearance.  I destressed the edges of my decorative  paper and stamped the greeting with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.  The stamp is by Stampers Anonymous.  The two holly sprays with bells is are from an old world Santa designer pieces I bought from Alpha Stamps

Since Christmas is only two weeks away, I decided to go with a very traditional Christmas greeting and image. The angel with music collage and the sentiment are wonderful stamps from Club Scrap. I stamped the image and words in sepia. The background is a beautiful neutral paper with raised gold dots.
The center of my greeting represents my greatest wish: "Peace on Earth."  The stamp is by "Stamps Happen."  I stamped it in black on a piece of scalloped card stock, did some coloring with pencils and then distressed it with some Antique Linen ink.  I placed that on some holiday-themed designer paper and all of that on some bright red card stock.  This is a great challenge so please join in!

A New Look

If you are a follower of mine you will notice that I have a new look.  This was not planned.  My computer went POW( and I had to get a new one.  With the new system my blog did not look right so I had to change.

Challenge # 31 - "A Christmas Greeting"

If you do any challenges on your blog, you will love the prize for this challenge. Below I give all the details, so read them carefully. The theme this time is "A Christmas Greeting" The greeting is to be the focal point on your project. I would like to see that one thing stand out. Also, I really would appreciate your becoming a follower if you are not already.

Below are some inspirations from the Design Team to get you started.
This is a very simple card to make. I red-embossed the greeting and then used a gold pen to bring out the word NOEL. I then embossed around the greeting using one of my folderws, but not the greeting itself. It was then placed on a red mat and then on top of a plaid Christms paper. I don't use plaid much, but I like the way this turned out. It is very simple, but makes the greeting the focal point of the card. I put two green stones to pick up the green in the plaid. I don't feel additional embellishments are needed.

A German Greeting
which translates into: Merry Christams and a happy New Year. I know this is a bit more than just a Christmas greeting but quite traditional in Germany. I used a A6 white card which I layered with patterend cream card and BasicGrey paper which I dry-embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and highlighted the raised areas. The sentiment is stamped (stamp: Heindesign) on off-white slightly textured card. The finishing touches are Stickles around the edge and some blings. Happy Crafting.
Hello, here is Valerie. I have made a large, square card with a very centrally placed sentiment. I have used papers from the DCWV Christmas Combo Stack, and added some red ribbon and a vintage Santa image.

InLinkz is giving away a 6 month subscription to a winner AND one month subscriptions to everybody else (who doesn’t have an account yet). After this month expires the winner does not have any obligation toward InLinkz and they do not need to extend their account. I will be notifying InLinkz of the winner and as usual I will send the winner an email to let her/him know he has won. If you enter the challenge and do not have an account and wish the monthly prize, you must notify InLinkz yourself.

This is a great prize ladies so take advantage. I have allowed my DT to submit an entry this time as the winner will again be picked my the faithful random generator and they do a lot of work witihout compensation.

Challenge #30 - "Who's Wearing Santa's Hat?"

This post will stay at the top while the challenge is running.  Please scroll below for more current posts.

We  usually see Santa wearing his hat. However, from time to time we see so many cute images on the net and Christmas cards of different people and animals wearing Santa's hat. Show the Design Team who you have seen with his hat. The hat can be on or can be held; just make sure Santa's hat is on the project.

You project can be a card, tag, or anything you choose as long as we see Santa's hat. While you are entering, please go to my sidebar and follow my blog.

Guest Designers

I have two guest designers from Bugaboo Stamps this week. They are Jackie Rakoski and Yvonne (Scrappy)


Cheerful Stamp Pad Design Team

My card features two little children wearing Santa hats.  This is one of the cute images from Bugaboo, my sponsor for this challenge.    The digital was colored with Copic markers and then placed on a solid red mat.  That was then placed on a torn piece of designer paper.  a string of sequins gives a little glitz to the card.

Isn't he cute and he looks sooooo cheeky... Mr Santa with his white fluffy beard and red hat ready to go down the chimney with lots of toys! For my little tag I used one of our Sponsor's digi stamps. The image is printed on My Mind's Eye patterend paper and a second time on white card stock so that I could cut out Santa and house and layer it with some foam pads onto the digital image for a bit more depth. The image is coloured with colouring pencils and Copics ... and, of course, lots of glitter and some cotton wool for the Santa's beard and eyebrows.
For the tag itself I cut various My Mind's Eye papers with Nestabilities, layered them, attached the digi stamp and as finishing touch put some baker's twine around the image. I have made a tag of a very happy looking Santa wearing a hat decorated with holly, and ready to distribute his presents.
I have made a tag of a very happy looking Santa wearing a hat decorated with holly, and ready to distribute his presents. The Santa image is a vintage Christmas scrap, you can still buy them at the stationer's here in Germany. The holly leaves and stockings have been cut using Sizzix dies, and the background paper is from DCWV. The stockings have been tied at the top with a ribbon, and the holly placed with a red bow to complete the festive look.
Aren't these little elves adorable! Both of them are images from our sponsor Bugaboo Digital Stamps. The minute I saw them I thought that they would look so cute hanging on the Christmas tree, so I made these ornaments as my project using the images. I printed the images on a transparency. I colored the images using markers and cut them in a circular shape the size of the ornaments. I rolled up each transparency around a pencil and fit them inside the ornaments. I used the pointsettia stamp (Heartfelt Creations) and the corresponding dies (HC/Spellbinders) to cut out the flowers for the ornament top.

It is the time for giving!  This cute digi girl from Bugaboo had a joyous time shopping and wrapping and is now off to deliver her gifts.  I colored her with pencils, gave the piece an angular cut and affixed the digi to designer paper with a holiday feel.  This digi makes me think of the happy times being with family and sharing surprises.  I hope it is a happy time for all of you.
Bugaboo Digital Stamps
Now for my terrific sponsor - Bugaboo Stamps.  Click on their name in the previous sentance and it will take you to their site.  Bugaboo has some great digital stamps as you can see from the above examples by the Design Team.  I am sure you will find something there you can use in your next project.  If you have a chance, take a peek at their site.

Also, a big thank you to them for sponsoring this challenge.
They are giving away 7 stamps so you don't want to miss entering this challenge.

Christmas is in the Air

I am really getting in the mood for Christmas.  We are running a little slow at decorating at my house this year as we  usually do it Thanksgiving Day.  However,  today we are going to pull the boxes from the garage.  You can imagine how many there are as I have all my stuff from 49 years of collecting.  I still have the first angel I bought the first year we were married  Would you believe she is in almost perfect paper mache  shape after 49 years!

I hope to post a couple of cards today.  The first one is a card using an image from CS Design.    You will find this card on Art with No Boundaries.  Chris has a great challenge going.  It is Red and Green.  Go and take a look at her blog and see the inspirational projects of her design team.
My card uses one of the winter images and I also put one of the Christmas sentiments on a Spellbinders diecut.  The fringe was made with a Martha Stewart punch and I inked the larger of the two Spellbinders mats with a gold painter's pen.   I used Copic markers for coloring.  The background paper is a piece of recently purchased Christmas paper.

More People and Things Wearing Santa's Hat

This has been such a fun challenge and my sponsor Bugaboo Stamps has given us such cute images to use for this challenge.  Santa's hat is really been worn by some unusual "characters".  If you haven't joined in yet, you are missing a fun challenge.  Who have you found wearing Santa's hat?  If it (they) are not wearing one, you are able to make a hat for your character as that is permissable in this challenge.

Here is where the Design Team found Santa's hat.

Here is another cute image from Bugaboo Stamps.  This little lady is carrying a candy cane on top of a quited background of various Christmas papers.  She is colored with Copics.  I started to add some embellishment to this card, but I felt the various papers were enough.  If you haven't had a chance yet, go to the link above and visit the Bugaboo site.  I am sure you will find something there that will be the perfect image for you.
Here is another darling Bugaboo digi. I colored this sweet teddy bear and his hot cocoa with pencils. After cutting it out and outlining it with a red Sharpie I placed it on some designer paper and then placed that on red cardstock. I'm finally getting into the spirit of making Christmas cards and I hope you'll also join the fun.

Here is Valerie. I have made a little painted wooden bird wearing Santa's hat this time. I used white acrylics for painting, edged with inka gold. Added a white ribbob, some flowers, a bow tie, and - of course - Santa's hat . so he can bring good cheer.

Somehow this challenge seem to trigger the cute side in my crafting (lol). I have had this High Hopes stamp for ages but have not really used it much. But this little cat is just so puuurfect for this challenge .... The base is an A6 card layered with Echopark patterend papers. For the middle part I used a Martha Stewart punch on Echopark papers and overlaid it with ribbon from the East India Company. I stamped the little Santa cat and the sentiment onto white card and cut it out. The circles are cut from the same white card and then embossed with the snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I mounted the image and the sentiment and - as it is Christmas - added some glitter.

Two Winners - Here's Why

If you will notice, I have posted two winners for Challenge #29 "Trees".  Lacey's entry number was picked first by the randon generator and she refused the prize as she has an online store and felt it would be unfair to accept the prize.   Therefore, I used the random generator again and it picked Carla's entry.

Thank you to both ladies for entering and I have posted both in the winner's spot on my sideline.

For all who do not know, I always notify the winner of my challenges.  That way you don't have to keep looking back to see if you won.  I hope everyone likes this and I encourage you to please follow my site.  The more followers; the more challenges.

It's Cold Outside

Here is a cute card I made with Chris Stern's new image at CS Designs.  It's she cute?  Chris has a new challenge going on at her blog Art With No Boundaries.  It is Christmas / Winter using red and green.

Take a peek through all the new images at CS Designs as Chris has put up a number of new sentiments just in time for  you to use for Christmas and the upcoming winter season.

Well enough of posting today as I am off to go shopping.  I desperately need some Christmas-looking paper and cardstock.  I thought I had some stashed away, but I can't find it.  The best way to find what  you have is to go out and buy more!

Challenge # 29 "Trees"

For this challenge we are going to look at "Trees" Your possible images are endless. There is the autumn tree with leaves turning their many colors, There is the tree that has lost all of its leaves. And deep in the forest in the dead tree with part of one of its limbs broken. If you head south, you will see the palm trees. Then there is the evergreen which stays so pretty and full all year long. As we head to the end of November and the beginning of December, we think of the Christmas tree all decorated with tinsel, ornaments and lights.

What type of tree can you show us?  Here is the Design Team's thoughts on the subject.
My card uses one of Digi Darla's images.  This tree is a symbol of one's childhood with the swing hanging from one of its branches.  I had a little trouble trying to color it as I wanted it to have fall colors .  I used my Copic markers and tried to show the colors of the leaves.

This card uses a technique called Stacked Nesties.  I had never done this one before, but I am pleased with how it turned out.  The greeting is an acrylic greeting sayng "Remember". 

 For this week's challenge I chose one of my favorite tree stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps. It's actually a multi step stamping image. I just think that the result looks like the trees you find in nature during the autumn season. The sentiment is from Stampscapes. The background is waterstamping on distress ink. The stamp used there is a leaf background stamp from Heartfelt Creations. I really love autumn colors; why does winter have to follow!

I am not quite sure why but I felt Christmassey this week ... maybe because I started to bake Christmas cookies. So it turned into a Christmas Tree. The card base is relatively simple with layering some October Afternoon papers and some ribbon and lace from my stash. The tree itself is assembled from paperbeads whereby I also used October Afternoon patterend paper. I embellished the tree with littel blings and a little glittery star.

I was feeling very autumn-y as I approached this project.  I stamped this tree by Stampscapes on several different types of card stock with several different backgrounds trying to strike the right mood.  Finally this version was the winner.  The card stock is already a delightful pumpkin color.  I wanted the image to be indistinct so I stamped it twice, once with markers and once with ink.  I added additional coloring with markers.  This is a simple card, just some beads and a little winged heart charm to finish it off.  Trees are an excellent subject for a challenge.  I hope you'll join in.
Here is Valerie. I have made a simple winter tag. The top half of the tag has been distressed with faded jeans and stormy skies, the snow has been embossed with Utee white, and the farmhouse and small tree has been stamped on top with archival black. Then added a TH branch tree die cut, which has been cut into 2 pieces and glittered with ice stickles in silver.

I am so pleased to announce that my sponsor of this challenge is Digi Darla Stamps. You can find her site my clicking on the name above.  There are many digitals on her site and she gives quite a few away from time to time.  I think you will find her site very appealing.  Go take a peek at her site and join in on her challenges. 

The winner of my challenge will be picked by random generator and she will receive three digitals.

Thursday, November 17, 2011


Here an ornament I made for the Gingersnap Creations' ornament exchange.  They are snowflakes.    I took some glittery snowflakes as my base.  On the front side is a silver embossed die on which a red bird and some trees were stamped.  On the back side is  stacked nesties with the words "Season's Greetings".  I hope the ladies who receive them in the swap like them.

More Inspirations for the "Trees" Challenge

This is the beginning of our second week of the "Trees" challenge.  There are so many tree stamps out there.  Let's see what you can create with one.  This challenge is being sponsored by Digi Darla digitals.  They will be giving away some digitals.
This card uses a technique that I haven't used before.  It is Collage Circles.  It really makes a nice background.  The trees, which is a Hero Arts stamp, above have been embossed with Tinsel by PK Glitz.  As a final touch I added a rafia ribbon that I found recently.  I didn't realize that you could get rafia as a ribbon or twine on a roll like ribbon.

I am emtering this in Gingersnap Creations' GC#126 Spicy Supply Challenge Rafia.
I have made another tag for our *trees* theme. I used a TH texture fade folder after spraying the card with different blue tones. I put the green directly into the folder to colour the tree. Then I gave the tree some sparkly frost with ice stickles, added a few stars, and a hungry wild boar looking for something to eat.
This card features a stamp by Stampscapes and is simply done using a distressed ink background and is placed on some Paper Temptress Kraft Brown Paper Bag card stock.  I don't know the origin of the chop stamp.  This forest scene is peaceful and it makes me smile.  The trees near my home were ablaze in yellows, oranges and reds but they are just about to be in winter mode.   Time to cozy up with a cup of tea and do more stamping!

Angel Wall Hanging

Here is another project I just finished.  It is a wall hanging using the newest image found on CS Stamps.  She is Angeline.  I thought she would be perfect as a snow angel.  I really like the way my background (that is where I always panic) turned out this time.  I used a mixture of gesso and acrylic  paint.  The picture doesn't show it, but the two colors are in slight swirls.  The snowflakes are a combination of different kinds  that I had.  Some have a slight pick irresdiscent color, some blue and some are made from glitter cardstock.  I like the combination of using different flakes.
Angeline was colored with Copic markers, and her wings have been Stickled.  Her body is dimensional as I layered one over top of the main image.  Cutting out her curls really took time, but she still has them all.  I felt Angeline had to be standing on something; therefore the cloud of  cotton.
 Completing the wall hanging is a silver rope hanger and a ruffle  on which the snowflakes have collected.  If you haven't had a chance to visit CS Design lately, you must take a peek at all the original designs Chris has created.

I used a digital of a raven from Graphics Fairy for this card.  The group of ladies I get together with each month are always making fun of my saving scraps.  Other than the base card, the background is made completely with scraps and I think it makes an interesting background.  The largest paper in the background is Faux Barnwood, the green is a piece of Camouflage.  The rust, orange and black pieces are scraps of cardstock that I added just to bring more color

If you think the raven is giving you the "eye", he is as I placed a wiggle eye on him.

I am using this card to enter Gingersnap Creations' GC123, Random Redhead Challenge Raven.

A Little Camouflage

I have made a number of items lately, but haven't had a chance to post.  Therefore I thought I would try to do a little catching up in the next couple of posts.

First, is a card that uses the camouflage technique on the background paper.  As an added touch to the card I included a couple of gears.  I stamped the old car using distressed ink to make it look old  The car image is from   The Stamp Pad and the greeting is by B-Line.

The camouflage technique takes just a little time, but it is one of my favorites.

I am entering this in Heart Song Inspirations'  Anything Goes.
