Misti, I hope your stamping plan worked. I find that lately, I won't get to my art if I don't do it first. Cleaning I can do tired but not art.

I didn't end up posting my oh nuts fail card. The whole gallery is full of beautiful fall cards and I didn't want to mess it up with a snowy blue card!

Here's the link to the TPT challenge: MMTPT537~ November 06, 2018 ~ Paper Hugs

I will be taking a photo of my card for it after work, combined with a stencil technique for the TLC. I didn't get stamping till after dinner last night. I know my potential to procrastinate, so in general I try to get the chores done first. So on Monday it's work and housework before creating.

The Sketch Challenge is up!

What have you created so far this week?

I used the no line watercolor technique on a pumpkin this week and I love how it turned out. I could watercolor pumpkins all day! If you haven't tried the technique, pumpkins are a great place to start! You can use any coloring medium for no line, it doesn't have to be watercolor. I used Copics several years ago when I colored my first pumpkin with the no line technique.

Angie, it was a lovely noline pumpkin. I haven't tried that technique, but it seems like it could be habit forming!

Thanks for this thread...it is fun to read the questions and think about how we can keep the excitement going...this is just the best home of the web for paper crafting.

And to Susie, your teapotter cards are lovely. I must give the tomato paste diecut a try...our Trader Joes' has the most beautiful tomato tin. It's all red and robins' egg blue...must cook something tomorrow so I am repurpose that tin.

Susan, it's not tin that Susie used. Tomato paste here also comes back tubed, which is far more practical as you can use just a couple of spoons if that's all you need. And I had sent some to Susie, hence the mention of quarantine. It's the tubes that cut like butter with regular dies, and the inside is a lovely tarnished gold colour. For tin I think you'd need Bigz or other steel rule dies. Which reminds me that I must remember to keep our next can of Guinness as DH wants to try a Guinness snowman.

Here's today's WT challenge with a snippet of history: WT713 ~ Blanket Time ~ {11/08/2018}. I think it's been unseasonably warm for much of the northern hemisphere; I only put a blanket on our bed a couple of weeks ago and had to take it off again this week.

Misti, I tried to work on a card for an upcoming challenge but mojo disappeared so worked on my lesson for the class I am leading this morning instead. My stamp is still sitting on my desk begging to be used but that will have to wait until this evening.

Sabrina, I like your pillow top tutorial. I would like to give that a try.

***

Raise your hand if you have quilt dies. If so how often do you use it?

I have one but it's not easy to use, I would love to have one that is all one plate, the one I have was something I purchased when I first started stamping and they are all individual pieces. It was sold by a little company that had the sweetest stamps. I was sorry when they went out of business.

I had a quilt die but never really liked it so I ended up getting the quilt dies from SU. If you cut three or four different papers you can interchange them and get three or four different quilts with them!

I haven't tried cutting the heavier metal used for food containers, but I have successfully cut very detailed butterflies out of soda cans with wafer thin dies - Tattered Lace and Sizzix, to be precise...

I am definitely doing this week's teapot challenge. Have been busy this week designing and prepping for my monthly stamp club that meets here. I've been able to fit in only a few challenges so far this week, but I've loved the cozy blanket and sweater time topics. We have our first snow of the season this morning.

I have a set of WPlus9 quilt dies, and while I love the look of the ODBD and SU ones, I think I wouldn't have the patience for them so I'll happily stick with occasionally using what I have. As Kathy pointed out, you need to cut several different papers if you're going for a pieced look, so you end up with lots of leftovers or, if you have the time, several cards.

I gave up on waiting for the MIX and have had fun making a mixed media card from scraps for a second TPT card, and another one (using that layered gesso background ) for an upcoming challenge sample. So at least I've got all painty and messy.Still not a lot of crafting time, ongoing situation, so mostly I'm just trying to make sure I'm on top of samples. Silver lining to the no-MIX cloud.

I loved all the blanket cards from yesterday D:. And man, it's so wet and windy here, the virtual cosies and comfort were great.

The Inspiration Challenge is up and I am your happy hostess this week! I found a site which carries gorgeous ornaments that I found in a local boutique. The store focuses on sustainable, organic and fairly made products.

My question today isn't a paper, ink, paint question but it's inspired by my IC site.

If you decorate a tree do you add to your ornaments each year? Do you decorate with only a certain color and theme or is it a free for all?

I had themed trees early in our marriage. I believe the first year I wrapped brown paper around little boxes and hung them on the tree, black and white photos of us, and homemade stuffed fabric ornaments, One year we had all cardinals on our tree and quite a few years we did a Noah's Ark tree. After our second child was born it became more about survival rather than a theme. Now I just love to pick up new ornaments. I especially like ones from places we visit. Our daughter collects fancy shoe ornaments. I will miss those when she leaves home and takes them with her.
I love a glazed ceramic ornament, a heavy ornament or a personalized ornament.

Your turn, tell us about your tree and if you don't decorate for the holidays, share if you have a collection of some sort.

I have had the Gina Marie quilt die for awhile and never used it so the Ways to Use It challenge was the perfect impetus to get me to try it! The Gina Marie die is all one plate so quite easy to use, but it means you cut all the pieces out of one dp, then all the pieces out of a second, and again all the pieces out of a third dp - not so good if you only want to make one card, but ideal if you want to make three while you're doing quilt themed cards. I've only posted one of the three that I was able to make with all the pieces I ended up with.

No themed tree here. I like individual ornaments that have memories associated with them ...it's one of the most special things about Christmas for me. Our first year we were pretty broke as DH lost his job 3 months after our wedding; I bought some lovely filigree brass ornaments which I still have, and knit a lot of little snowmen which I also still have. Most years I buy a new one, and my sister often gives me one. Last year I was too tired to think about a tree; I passed a neighbour pruning his silver birch on the way to work one morning, and just had time to ask him for a branch, bring it back here and get the next bus to work. I fit a surprising amount of my best ornaments on it, and a string of lights.

As kids, the tree became the focus of our play for the week, like an extra-big dolls house. We all had our favourite ornaments to play with - and some we all coveted - but the one we were never allowed to touch was a little Santa my dad had made for my mother from an eggshell. He went up to the top of the tree as a topper, and survived all the years.

I have a few Hallmark Snoopy ornaments, and this one I made myself: Snoopy Decorates the Tree by Cook22 - at Splitcoaststampers

And here's one of my knitted snowmen ( this one has a knit scarf, but some of them were scale from my sewing box, loaded with their own memories) and a little Venetian glass one:

As a newlywed (broke college students) the ornaments were DIY - popcorn balls wrapped in colored cellophane and Santas made with salt dough and a cookie cutter. After the kids started coming I continued the DIY thing, but progressed to "fancier". My best friend and I would get together once a month and make things. I subscribed to a series of Christmas craft books and bought the Better Homes and Gardens special edition magazines and such. Cross-stitch was also predominant then. One year I bought a scroll saw and did a lot of painted wood ornaments. Over the years I've moved a bizillion times and most of the ornaments are long gone (not the memories, though). Now I tend to do color-themed trees.

One of my favorite things when I lived in southern California was to go to the amazing "boutique" that Roger's Gardens put on every year. It was AMAZING! Huge, and each section had its own theme. Here's a link to this year's: Christmas 2018 | Roger's Gardens

With reference to post #375, DH and I split a can of Guinness between us last night and here's our Guinness snowman - unfinished because the silicone glue needs to cure overnight. It's a pity I already have a completely different Christmas card in mind for my boss. She's Spanish, and I want to use Lawn Fawn's Baaah Humbug with the Fleece Navidad sentiment.

Love the Guiness snowman, Sabrina!
I've often thought about having a themed tree but when it comes down to it, I can't resist the pull of nostalgia and put my same ornaments up , adding one or two new ones each year, often picked up when traveling. I just treated myself to the Chickadee ornament from the site Angie directed us to in the inspiration challenge today : )

Such fun to see this thread taking on a life of its own! Thanks bunches, Angie! Y'all have tweaked my "need to stamp" button ... but I need to stick with a 'sympathy' theme for stamping. A smidge behind, you think you've got everything covered .... then wake up to another note of someone's sadness. I do have a brand new stamp set that needs to play soon ... so I'll see about watercoloring or else copic coloring this branch & they to check off one virtual "box".

Sabrina, I sure hope you're starting to get a warm Spring down & over there ... because here on my plot, I'm in socks, sleeves, long pants, a cardigan that is "off" for a couple of minutes then "on" again for a couple. Tissues are 4 steps away, and voice is in the bottom of some virtual cave. Whose turn is it to make hot somethings to sip?!

Ha! I've been "pretending" that it's fall here in Las Vegas - wearing boots and sweaters to work, even. It's only just this week getting down into the 60s and I finally turned the air conditioner off last night! As much as I HATED six months of winter back east, I sure do miss the fall!

On another note - and more to the point of this thread - I MADE A CARD TODAY! Yes, I did - and for a challenge, too! Go, me, right? I'm hoping to knock out a few more this weekend, too - lots of new stamps to play with and lots of inspiration rolling around in my brain!

I love that snowman Sabrina!!!

Claudia, I want several of those ornaments and I think they would make great gifts for my artsy SIL and the Fair Trade part would appeal to my other SIL!

Bev, I am so glad you are enjoying the thread. I am too! I don't stamp with anyone so I love "connecting" here at SCS with other stampers! You are right about always needing a comforting card. There are so many sad needs.

Sue your BFF angels were darling. Loved the ornament that inspired them too!

What's on today's line up you ask? Our Featured Stamper is Nicole (cnsteele). Nicole's gallery is full of beauty, I know you will find something to inspire! Congratulations Nicole and have a wonderful week!

Lydia is up with today's Falliday Fest Tutorial #6. It's super cute!

I had to go to my daughter's school at 1 am this morning to pick her up since we share a car and I needed it while she was gone. The drama team went to a state competition with their One Act play this weekend. She was wiped out and sad because they lost. Fiddler on the Roof won which even though she was sad, she said they deserved the win. I fell into bed about 2:30 so my brain is mush this morning. Who has a question for us?

I've got one, inspired by what occurred this morning: How many UFOs (UnFinished Objects) do you have hanging around? I didn't think I had that many, but I discovered a whack of them this morning - a DVD case and a drawer (desktop organizer) FULL! I can probably make at least 20 cards with these bits and bobs! Anyone else?

I have a ton of backgrounds waiting to be loved! Then I have 6 unfinished tic TAC holders. That's about it, only because you asked just after I finished up some projects this morning! This year I stamped the insides of all my Christmas cards as I made them! Over 120!

It depends on how you define unfinished. I make multiples of backgrounds to have on hand, so I have a box full, but that's just the same as having pads of DP. I rarely colour images in advance because I'm not good at using them, but I certainly have two or three left from when I was sick last Christmas, still waiting to be made up. I'm worse with knitting, blushes, but after having had to finish off several assorted projects when my mother died, I'm pretty disciplined about finishing one thing off before starting another.
