I finished this card up today. Another hAnglar stamp. These are so cute. Someday I hope they sell them in the US. I colored her with my prisma's. I used a chipboard swirly up in the corner. Used my green dew drop to color the chipboard. Flowers out of my stash. I used my Fiskars border punch for the middle panel and my oval nesties. I think this is one of my favorite hAnglar stamps, as least for today!
Hope your having a great week!
Thanks for stopping by!


I have a hard time with Edwin cards. But this turned out okay, its kind of plain for me, but one minute I like it the next I don't. This is traveling Edwin I got from a good friend of mine, across the pond! I colored him and the suitcase with my pirsma's and colored the swirls with my SU ink. It was one swirl but I cut it in half! Corners punched out with my SU punch and the scalloped border....SU's new border punch.
Thanks for stopping by, hope everyone has had a great week.

I love lavender, not as much as red! I found this great paper at Michaels on clearance about 3 months ago. I just fell in love with how soft it looked. I colored my hAnglarstAnglar image with copics. I used my SU punch for corners and then 1/4 the corners. I stitched on the card, My nestis for the ovals. This is ribbon from the $ bin at JoAnne Fabric. This was a fun card to play with. I just kept adding layers.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, thanks for stopping by!

Old and New Christmas Card

I don't even know where to start with this card! The tree image I've had forever and is by Northwoods Rubber stamps. Its a great stamp and its big! I suppose about 5-6 years ago I stamped the image on glossy cs and embossed it with a copper color. I sponged the sky, I'm guessing all this by looking at it! In my drawer it went. Today I was upstairs in my craft room looking for something and ran across and old cardboard frame I was saving, for what?? LOL It was starting to yellow! AHHH, bright idea, now where is that tree scene image I have? So after a lot of searching, found it. Another bright idea, i'm going to emboss it with that pretty light blue embossing powder. WRONG! Either the card board was to old, to thick or something, it wouldn't emboss. As long as I have been stamping, I do not own a heat gun! I use, yes, the stove! Well trying to emboss this cardboard almost started it on fire, it was turning a nice parchment brown. Hubby was not happy with me, since the whole house started to smell like burning cardboard. Went back over to the cupboard and brushed off the embossing color. Went and got my Kaleidacolor, Blue Breeze and stamped TAC Holly Swirls and stamped those out. Then cardboard still looked pretty brown underneath, I sponged the frame with my Kaleidacolors. Used my sparkly Gelly Roll pen and went over the swirls a few times so they would show up as sparkly, which you can't catch in the picture. I also took my Diamond Sticklers and dotted up the trees to look like fresh fallen snow. I used an image by Whiff of Joy that was sent to me from a good friend. I colored her and the reindeer, then used my turqouis stickles and put on the fur. Way to much glitter, so wiped that off. Used an OLD old ink pad from Hero Arts called The Inkers. Its a white fluffy looking ink. Still works. Then I just put it all together and this is how it turned out. Not bad for taking 6 years to put together!
Thanks for stopping by.

Another Christmas Card

This is a image I colored up about a week ago and just put it together very fast!
With the image being so large and busy, i didn't want to add a lot of embellies to it. I embossed Merry Christmas in gold on the side of the card, added ribbon to the corners of the image. The image is from The Stamping Place, called, Holiday Door. I bought this image about two years ago on my way up to see my daughter in college. This is the first time I have colored it! I used my Prisma's to color the image. Its a simple card with alot of coloring! LOL
Thanks for stopping by.

The Man Card

This is for my hubby's birthday. I think making a MAN CARD has got to be one of the hardest things to do. I wanted to put pretty ribbon on it, and flowers! He likes flowers, but only in the yard! I had Edwin playing the guitar, my hubby plays guitar, and the cuttlebug music embossing folder and I went from there. My goodies are from Loreen at Wish on a Scrap. The button are from my coat! LOL On the inside I made another embossed layer and made a pocket with my Enveloper! Have you ever used one? OMGOSH they are fantastic and so much fun! Loreen sent me one as a gift! I love playing with it and it make the greatest envies! Thank you Loreen!!! What a wonderful gift! I also made an envelope to go with the card.
I colored Edwin with my Prismas.

Sympathy Card

I made my first sympathy card today. The stamp is by Paper Inspirations. I used my cuttlebug border embossing folder for the side of the card. On the inside, I generated a personal message with my graphics program.
Thanks for stopping by.

Reindeer Card aka Christmas Card

This is a card I've been working on for almost 2 weeks. I had it all finished except for putting it together, just wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I wanted it plain as I could. I think it turned out very pretty and simple. I can't remember where the stamp is from, its made from black rubber. I bought it about 2 years ago.
Thanks for stopping by, hope everyone has a great week.

October Kit is AWESOME!

Here is another project that took me days to do! Hopefully soon I will be back on track! Everything on this card except for my ribbon (stash) is from the October kit, and big embellie on envie is from the Sept. kit from Wish on a Scrap The paper is gorgeous! I colored up a HanglarAnglar stamp that a friend sent to me. I've never made an envelope for any of my cards! This time I did, using my Enveloper Scoring board! Easy peasy as they say! This is a box envelope, about 1/8 of an inch thick to put a nice fat embellished card into it! Decorated it up a little, and walla! Done! Of course this can't go through the mail, but what a fun way to actually call it done!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone has a great week.

Engagement Book

This is for my daughter and fiance'. I've worked on this for about 3 days, very under the weather here! I followed a tutorial for the box and lid at SCS. Nice little box that goes together very fast. The inside book with pictures is from Scrapbook Lounge. Its oragami folding and is easier than I had thought it to be! I think the little accordian booklet turned out great. I then took the pics from m's proposal and used my graphic program to resize them and print them off. Tucked each one into a "pocket". It folded up so nice! Then I just used simple embellishments to wrap it up.
Thanks for looking!!

August Calendar

Here is my August calendar. I only have one done so far! Coloring that tent is a little time consuming! I'm not sure if I'm going to go with this one or not. Reason is, I don't know if I want to color 3 more tent scenes! But I like the way it turned out with Edwin playing his guitar.
Thanks for stopping by!

Coaster Frame

This is my coaster frame I made to hold my granddaughters first birthday picture.
She was a gooey mess! I used everything from my October kit from Wish on a Scrap. Loreen put together such an awesome kit and the colors are gorgeous! Reese's colors for her 1st birthday were pink and brown. This paper fit the colors perfect. I used two coasters and cut my cs 4x4. I rounded the ends and then used my exacto knife to round the corners more on the coasters. The scalloped frame part on the right side, I used my nesties for that. Worked okay, my coasters are very very thin, don't think this would work with a thick coaster. I ran it through my cuttlebut several times for the cut. Actaully I put 2 sheets of white cardstock under my C plate to make it a little tighter. Be careful, this is a good way to break that handle right off! When I turned the handle, I didn't use the turn KNOB, I held it close to the machine itself. I also used my square nestie for the center cut. Then just put it all together. The sentiment was generated on the puter the size to fit the tag. This was so much fun. A little out of my comfort zone altering something! But I did it!!
Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a great weekend.

October Kit

I wanted to show you the October kit from Loreen at Wish on a Scrap! Its wonderful!! The paper is by BoBunny and is more than gorgeous! You know, the kind you don't want to use, you want to save it forever! LOL The flowers by Petalloo, Pattlet of Petals, are shimmery, beautiful!!! Thickers and Stickers and Rhinestones, felt fushion rain dots and floral doodles! And a 5x7 Mini book kit! I love it! The Halloween mini book kit won't be done till after Halloween. This is going to be of my grandkids!! How fun!
I can't wait to start creating. Be sure you check out Wish on a Scrap Blog to see the great idea that the designers come up with! Also some great tutorials there!
Thanks for stopping by! Just had to share my "stash"!! LOL

Calendar Swap?

Okay, so I joined in on a Calendar Swap! So unlike me, hate being put "under pressure"!!! LOL So far its going really good, always does the first part, second part gets scarry! Other things get in the way! But...not this time. I'm working on these till done! And I have to say, they are fun! I didn't know if I was going to like making 4 of the same thing, but its not bad! I do one thing, 4x's! Then go to the next 4 things! These calendars are for Magnolia-icious Yahoo Group. Chris is in charge of the swaps and is doing a great job with it all. I have July, August and September for months. July I thought was very easy. Using Magnolia stamps, this is Bandaged Tilda. Isn't she to cute! This is my first calendar and only have a total of 11 to go!
Hope everyone is having a great week!

Winds of Change

This was simple and fun. Not a lot of thought went into it, well I started with something else and ended with this. I used my cuttlebug and embossed with the swirls folder. Then I used my TH distressed inks and went over the swrils with a sponge dauber. The oval is from TAC and the Sentiment is also from TAC, Autumn Swrils.
Ribbon from Michaels. Most of the Holiday ribbon I like has wire in it, I just pull the wire out and have my ribbon! Don't let the ribbon with wire stop you from buying it! Awesome ribbons out there for the Holidays!!

Sledding Tilda

I love the winter Tilda. How cute can she be! And she almost looks warm!
I colored her with my Prisma's and added Stickles to the fur. I used my Silver Sakura Gelly roll pen for the snowflakes falling. The big snowflake is from Imaginations. I picked up the great ribbon at Michaels in the Christmas ribbon isle. Less than $!! The scalloped edge is made by my SU scalloped border punch.
Fast card and very girly!!
I just posted and checked it out on my blog, and the camera is working BAD! This card is much more colorful than the blah way it looks on here! LOL
I'll have to have my hubby teach me!
Thanks for looking!!


This is going to be short and sweet! I have no idea who these stamps are by! LOL
They are in my Halloween stash and already put away! Next time I dig, I will let you know! But I like the card! Scarry!!

Let's Dance

This stamp is a long story!! There is a site out there called Dottie's World. They are computer DL's of stamps. And they are CUTE! I have been to that blog about 2x's a week to see if they have changed it to selling to the US. But nope, still just in the UK!! I have been stalking that site for tooooo long! So I am lucky to have a wonderful friend in London (love that word!! ;)), Katz who surprised me and bought this set for me! Of course I had to have this one, due to hubby in a band. Not that he looks like Elvis, but can't beat the music of the 50's and 60's! I was so excited!! While she was in Spain on Holiday, I told her I would get a card done! Well this is it! I had so much fun coloring this stamp!! Can't wait to try my other ones!
Thanks for stopping by!!

The Dark Card!

I found this card to be really dark. I find a lot of comfort cozy in the dark, more relaxing. So this card might be a little to dark. I had to take it outside to get a decent picture of it! This is my 15lb. card! LOL
The image of course is a Tilda sitting, check out those glasses! I colored her with my Prisma's and googone. All paper is by TAC called Willoughby. Love those colors and how they go together! I had those fancy "paperclips" from CTMH. They were a gift to me. I used my Coluzzle to cut out the oblong piece, ribbon-stash! Flowers Prima's. The little tag up in the corner is also from TAC and I took wire and attached it to the brads. SU punch to punch out the corners. For some reason it took me forever to put this card together. I knew what I wanted but I could never find it!
Thanks for stopping by....Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Bling Birthday!

Well here it is, the bling card. Her theme colors will be pink and brown so gramma made a card with pink and brown. The image is a Magnolia, Balloon Tilda. I end up cutting the balloon off and making my own version. The dc is by Doodlebug. I've had this paper for along time, knew I bought it for a reason! used my fiskars border punch on the middle scallop and SU corner punch for the corners. My nesties for the ovals and Prima's are the flowers. The "1" and the "balloon" I can't remember who they are by, but I do know they came in my August kit from Wish on a Scrap. Ribbon...stash! This card is a lot like the one I made for my other granddaughter on her 7th birthday, but yet, totally different. Well thats it!
Hope you enjoyed your stay here at IttyBittyInkSpots!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

1st Birthday

Well we have a first birthday in the family next week! What a milestone! Walking and babbling and enjoying all the new goodies yet to discover.
This is the first card I made for Reese. Was not happy with it, needed "more". I love the image! The stamp is by Penny Black and he is so cute! Being Reese's first birthday the card needed more bling. So this one will go into a pile for when we have a birthday for a one year coming up! And I know a few!
I will upload the card I made this morning, the one with the "bling"!!
Thanks for stopping by!


Well almost "Tis the Season". I was just playing when I made this card. I started with the Tilda and colored her red and green. When I realized she had a sleeveless top on I didn't think I would finish her up for a Christmas card. But then when I thought of my friend who lives in AZ, figured it would be a perfect card for her!
I used everything from my stash. Used my fiskars punch and the Merry Christmas is a die from Sizzix. Ribbon in my stash and she was colored with my prisma's.
I love the colors, tis the season!

Well finally a card. This is spose to be good therapy, creating! So I'm trying to get in the swing of things again, after loosing my mojo for awhile!
These are my newest addiction, the HanglarStranglar stamps! I just think they are so cute. A friend of mine sent me a few images. You cannot buy these in the US and I sure wish you could. My ds paper is from TAC called Willoughby. I know I am NEVER going to run out of this. When things look low, I will get more! It is gorgeous paper! Nice heavy feel to it and they go together so nice! I used two of my Fiskar border punches. Threaded my ribbon through and tied my bow. Flowers are from my stash and are Prima's. And last but not least....I USED MY COPICS to color her! Every thing is colored with copics! I'm so proud! My colors are very limited and I don't see my collection growing in the near future, so its a good thing I have a few of the fall colors!
