A Dream Journey!!

Happy President's Day everyone (for those here in the US)!!  My kids are STILL home from school and so is hubby today--LOL!  Valentine's Day went something like this for us....I slept in, James made me breakfast in bed, I worked, we had lunch, I worked, we had pizza for dinner, I worked some more, hee hee---I basically worked 16 hours yesterday getting ready for 3 Blog Hops this week, new stamp releases and the reveal of the Dirty Dozen Gallery at SCS--whew!  It was a VERY long day and I hope to keep the work to a minimum today so I can play a bit--it's of course supposed to snow here again tomorrow, but hopefully only 3 inches this time.  Hubby is heading to Whitetail Ski Resort to ski for the day--that's my VDay present to him---I do not like winter so skiing is not my sport :o)  Enough chitter chatter for ya--I have a ton of stuff to get thru on this post so make sure and scroll all the way to the bottom (there's some Blog Candy hidden down there too, hee hee)!


NewsBitz:

-The New Dirty Dozen Fan Club Gallery is up at Splitcoast Stampers and it's all about being "Bold, Dirty and Masculine" this month!  Come see all my manly creations HERE and if you're not a fan club member then now is a great time to join (see HERE for details)!  Below is a small sneaky peek of one of my projects (yeppers that's a Mo image) :o)

-Mo's Digital Pencil is having an awesome Celebration Blog Hop tomorrow to celebrate her 1000+ members on her PCP group and 6 fabulous months in the Digi Stamp biz!!  Make sure and hop with us cuz' the prizes that are being given away are AWESOME--me wants some too :o)

-Today, Blog Candy starts for the fabulous NEW Release from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD on the store blog HERE!  The release will be this coming Friday!

Magnolia-licious DT Blog Hop

Today the Magnolia-licious DT has a fun Blog Hop planned for you today--and the theme is Pop-Up Cards/projects (my fave)!  You can find all the details for this hop on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE along with how you can play along for prizes!  I LOVE creating pop-up scenes, they're fun to do but they are definitely a labor of love!  I really wanted to use some of my stamps from the Magnolia "Pet Collection" that hadn't seen ink yet.  All of these stamps are available at Magnolia-licious--for the front of my card I used the "Jungle Car".  I used some old K&Co vellum that had postcards and stamps on it, cut them out and arranged them on the front.  The sentiment (just got this a few weeks ago--perfect timing) is from Hero Arts and distressed all my edges with my Tonic Distress Tool (luv that thing)!

And this is how the inside pops up--a real Jungle Scene Journey for you (I won't tell you how many hours I spent on this, it's scary)!  I'm all about details--the more the better, I want someone to look at this card and notice all the special touches.  I used the "Waterfall Background" and "Jungle Car" along with cute "Jungle Tilda" on the inside.  I wanted it to look as though she was going to step thru a photograph of the Jungle and start her journey!  The vine leaf ribbon can be found HERE--I just love it!  The sentiment is from the same Hero Arts set.

Here's cute Jungle Tilda getting ready to start her journey--I had to give her just a lil' bling on her shirt and pockets--a girl's still gotta look good! LOL!  The windows on the car got diamond glaze and the tail lights got some stickles for sparkle.

 From the side view, you can see how I create my pop-up elements.  Jungle Tilda is hooked directly to the car which is attached to the background--when the card folds so do the pop-ups!


Here's a close-up of the background---the waterfall got a layer of diamond glaze, then stickles on top once dry and the foam of the water got a coat of liquid applique.  And I added some sparkles to the mountains too--I wanted it to be dreamy beautiful!  Hope you enjoyed the journey today---now your NEXT HOP is to KERRY's BLOG HERE (and if you get lost you can access all the Blog Hop info on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog as well)!!

Blog Candy Alert!!!  And for those that read all the way thru, I thank you, hee hee---leave a comment on this post letting me know "What Your Dream Journey is?" and you can win ALL 3 Magnolia Stamps I used today along with the Hero Arts Sentiment Set (your's will be new, hee hee--not used of course)!!  You have until this Friday to enter!!

Easter Tulips for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog

Since today is the 15th that means it's another fun challenge over at the Copic Creations Challenge Blog!  This time our challenge was to use Copics to color embellishments, a really fun technique.  Copics can be used on so many things including fabric, ribbon, paper, buttons, lace, clear baubles, brads, etc.!  The sponsor this week is DZ Doodles and they have some beautiful digi stamps in their store and they so graciously gave each of the DT a digi stamp to use this week!  I got this beautiful stamp called "Wrapped Tulips" which I love--Tulips are my absolute favorite flower of them all!  The beautiful paper is by Prima, the lattice punch by MS and all cs is from PTI.
I used Copics to color my image (B01,B00,B0000/R22,R20,R00/G99,G25,G20) and also my Prima E flowers.  The center rose is already colored, but all the rest of the flowers were white and I enhanced them with R20 & R00 to match---I buy a ton of flowers in white so I can color them, paint them, airbrush them and spritz them to match my projects (find a variety of white flowers HERE).  The image was cut out with my oval nestabilities and then I coated the edges with MS crystal microbeads for a fun touch.

Now make sure and hop over to the Copic Creations Challenge Blog HERE to see the rest of the DT's beautiful projects and join in on the fun!

  14. What awonderful time you look like you had. My dream journey oh that is a hard one, well we've visited 2 states in canada and driven around about half of florida, so I tyhink my dream journey would be to drive around the whole of the 52 states in the US well maybe not me drive in Alaska as I don't like driving on ice and I'm not altogether sure how icy it is up there, and I'd like to drive through the rest of Canada apart from the bad weather bits someone else can do the driving there. I don't mean just drive I like to stop off at places and spend a few days exploring all the wonderful places there are, and then I'd like to travel , chaufeur driven round europe as the roads are more crowded and its often tiring due to the amount of concentrating you have to do but I'd like to visit all the places I've not yet been and then Australasia , in fact I think my dream journey would be a world tour as there are so many beautiful places on our planet I would love to experience them all but most important of all I'd want to do it all with my wonderful hubby and son.
    Thanks for asking Julye

  20. Beautiful cards! I am in awe of them and can not imagine the hours in the jungle one (I would not have kept track- it would have scared me too!)My dream journey, hmmm not sure of specifics but, it would be in the USA and we would have to drive there. It most likely would be a leisurely trip down the east coast, stopping at many historic sites and ending with a trip to Disney (never been!. What would make it a dream journey would be no thoughts of work, worries and not worrying about spending the money!

  21. Hi Suzanne, your pop up card is so gorgeous! Everydetail, from the waterfall to the hills to the vines framing your scene is just wonderful. Your coloring is fabulous!

  43. I love your card! I think I may just have to try one of these pop ups! My favorite journey would be a trip to a spa where I could relax then after that I would be provided with a store full of stamps and unlimited embellishments so I could sit and create on a table big enough for a giant. A place where I would not to have to worry about dishes or kids needing me. Just for one day this would be my dream journey! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  48. You've done it again, Suzanne. That pop-up is fantastic. I can only imagine the hours it took to create. And the tulips.....I'll have to look for this digi stamp. My Dream Journey is to fly to Australia, rent a jeep type vehicle and tour the country, visiting with everyone I meet and hoping to find more stampers.

  49. Suzanne what beautiful art work. I love your attention to details.
    My dream journey includes a very large white limo taking me to any stamp store in the country, waiting for me to shop and then when I am finished with a particular store continuing on to another stamp store. I imagine this would take quite a long time and of course money would be plentiful and never ending.

    stamp on...

  50. Ireland is my dream journey. It looks absolutely beautiful and I would love to go there. --Have to say I love the front of this card. I have just gotten into stamping and never would have thought of leaving the stamp uncolored. Love it!!!

    Dream Journey: well gosh this is hard b/c well it could be a journey that would last forever. Traveling across the US and meeting all my friends, Tim Holtz and who knows who else. It would then be to some tropical place (with everyone in tow)to just visit, and then someone (maybe Tim) would do classes with all types of wonderful stamps and goodies! Ha!

  84. This has been a fun journey in itself with all the coloring you have done. But dream journey is to get yet another knot (hopefully not a tumor but whatever it is behind me after doing MRI today) and get settle in with the guy I have been seeing for years. Abusive past with ex is behind me and want to start anew. So I guess that's two dreams sorry. Carol M in TX / carolswingster77@aol.com

  85. Your talent is amazing! My dream journey is two fold, if I was selfish and wanted a dream journey just for me, it would be to travel to your house and then to a few others just to sit with them as they craft so I could watch and learn from you all. I am blown away every time I look at some of these blogs. Now if I had my dh with me, my dream journey would be to visit Australia or to find Heidi in the Swiss Alps. Either one would be just fine with me!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Oh my goodness! These cards are gorgeous! I'm sure you spent hours (at least I would have - {wink!}). My dream destination is not too crazy. I would love to take my kids to see both the Grand Canyon and Niagra Falls (sp?). It is something I would like them to see before they get too big and find it hard to appreciate these natural wonders.

  87. Suzanne, you never cease to awe and amaze me with your work. It just gets better and better. For my dream trip I would love to recreate the cross country trip we went on when I was 10 (almost 50 years ago) where we camped in a tent for 7 weeks from Fl to CA and back across midsection of country. We stayed in motel only 3 nights the whole trip! I still remember it like it was yesterday. Thanks for letting me walk down memory lane.

  91. As usual, your card is b-e-a-utiful!! I love the detail you put in with the diamond glaze and the stickles...and that doesn't even count all the time you spend with those copics! My dream journey would be to travel through Asia and the Middle East. My husband is originally from that area and I would love nothing more than to see and experience all the areas he has been and grown up. Here's hoping school is back to normal here in Loudoun Co. Looking forward to the drawing!

  92. Wow Suzanne! Your attention to detail is stunning along with your cards! I'm in awe of your talent!
    My dream journey - to see the Sistine Chapel! I've had this dream since the 1st time I did a book report on it when I was a kid (way back when!). Knowing how the frescas were made is amazing enough, but knowing the conditions & the time involved in it makes it even more intriging! We complain when our lighting isn't perfect or that we don't have the room to create, & then I think of the Chapel & how I really should feel blessed for what I do have!

  95. WONDERFUL!! Love all the details you put into your work. Especially like the flower card! Nice work.
    Now for the "candy" entry: my favorite dream journey would be to go back to Germany, look up info on ancestors (and maybe those that are still living). But while I'm dreaming I will dream about winning the blog candy you have here ;) Thanks for such wonderful eye candy to view!

  96. What a great pop up jungle card!!

    My dream journey... wow, it's hard to narrow it down to just one area! I think my dream journey would be a trip to Australia and New Zealand. There would be so many things to see and do, I would need a month or more just to see half!

  98. Fantastic cards as always Suzanne! Colours/layouts everything is fab! My dream journey would be to do a tour of all the states in America, finishing up by seeing the Niagra falls. I've never been to America, but from what I hear others say it sounds great. I'm Scottish and by comparison my country is a spec! lol Plus think of all the craft goodies I could by! ha ha ha!

  102. Suzanne - absolutely awesome! I just adore your work and love all your creations! I'm actually on my dream journey - or one of them for the past 3 years. Even with all the ups and downs with health, the brain tumor, countless hospitalizations, my DH and I have been able to travel. Our dream was to retire, get an RV and travel across the states. We are doing that now and loving every minute. I've met some of the most wonderful people and made some lasting friendships along the way. The other part of this dream journey was due to medical reasons and retirement, I have been fortunate to meet lots and lots of people in the art world and that hs been and is a fantastic journey.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards - the tulips are beautiful.

  104. Hi Suzanne, this Magnolia card is brilliant!

    My dream journey is happening now - I have a great life with my husband and dog, and we travel to far-off places when we can. Perhaps my goal journey would be to sail down the Intracoastal Highway and winter in the sunny Caribbean.

    Cheers

  108. My dream journey would be to visit Italy and see all the sights my husband saw while he was there for work. He got most weekends off and did quite a bit of traveling. I followed him along from California via Google Earth, but I would love to see it all with him, holding hands. Sappy, I know, but I'm a sappy kind of girl.

    My dream journey.....Wouldn't we all like to be younger so we could enjoyed our loved ones that have passed on, and the love ones we still have even longer! Being with people I love, including my relatives and friends that live far from me would be my dream journey.

  115. Suzanne, What lovely cards. All are so unique and look perfect :)
    My dream journey is to begin tutoring students in the community that can't afford an expensive center. I will be tutoring 2 days a week and the 3rd day I want to start a stamp club for my students.
    I think they would love using my stamps and card. Hopefully they will want to help me send cards to the troops. I just want to make a difference and still get to share my love of stamping.
    Loved the jungle pop-up card. Awesome and would love to know how to make them.

  118. I love your cards and I LOVE Magnolias! So does my daughter. My dream vacation would be to take my daughter to Disneyland. She is terminally ill and too sick to travel. It's her dream to go to Disneyland and I wish we could go. So.. I guess my dream vacation would include her feeling better so she could go and that would be the greatest gift of all. In the meantime, we'll try to spend time crafting and spending time together. :-)

  119. You are truly an inspiration...these cards are gorgeous.

    Now that I think about it, I've been on a Dream Journey. Had an exciting career in the LA's TV industry for 15 years. Now I'm in my 2nd career as SAHM with my 15-month-old and living in HI. Life is good and I'm looking forward to where the journey takes me!

  120. There are alot of places I would like to visit and alot of things I would like to see, but I think my dream journey would be the opportunity to live long and happy and to see my two boys grow up and watch their journey through life. That will certainly be something to see.

  121. Beautiful card Suzanne! I just love how you created a scene :) Some cities I'd love to go are: Sydney, Vancouver and Rome one day with my family and fiancee! They are the most important people in my life and going through life with them and finding out what God has planned for me is a dream journey :)

  128. Your cards and blog have revived the artistry within me. It was going south!:) I actually took my dream journey last year. In 1961 (yikes) I entered high school and had to choose a language. I chose French. I had a wonderful teacher, Sister Emily (Catholic School)and I took the class for three years. The language just clicked with me. I only spoke it to my family who never knew what I was saying. Well...here's the good part. Last Christmas my son, Mike bought me and his sister plane tickets to Paris. He knew I always dreamed to really try out my French. I brushed up a bit and we were all welcomed by the French everywhere we went because I could speak their language.I surprised my kids (and myself) at how much I retained.It was a trip of a lifetime, not only to be in Paris but to have a trip like that with my kids. Wow! Wish we were back there. Thanks for reading all this.

  133. Hi Suzanne,

    Your cards are FABULOUS, as always! When I grow UP...I want to learn to color just like "Suzanne Dean"!! LOL!!

    Now...as from my DREAM Journey, I would LOVE some day go to Paradise Island in the Bahamas. It's always been a dream vacation to me, and I keep hoping that some day, some how, I'll get there!!

    Thanks for asking! BTW - What is YOUR dream Journey?

    Happy crafting,
    Lisa

    My dream journey would have to be somewhere tropical. Somewhere away from the hussle and bussle of the crowds. Not away from people, just not a lot of them - lol! Somewhere totally peaceful and relaxing :D

  138. Suzanne your card is gorgeous! You make the most Fantastic and Detailed cards...truly out of this world, not just a journey to get there!! Tee Hee..
    The journey I always dream about doing is the "300 Mile (I think)traveling garage sale" I've seen the speacial they've done about it twice on HGTV. It goes thru several states, meanders done one long highway and looks like a blast. Would love to take a trailer and lots of money and find all those beautiful old pieces of treasure for my house! Thanks for the chance at the drawing and the little bit of "flutter" my heart did thinking about it.

  139. I've never seen so many comments in three days in my life! You are a ROCK STAR Suzanne! And, I'm sooo happy to know you. I will have to get you autograph when we can finally meet in person. :)

    Both (ALL) of your cards are sooo gorgeous! You really make each and every image come to life with your Copic mastery and amazing details! Awesome job on the CC challenge too. hugz, Mary

  140. What a talented lady you are Suzanne!! I love for my email update to come through with Scrap Bitz on it because I know I'm in store for some awesome project, and you never cease to amaze me!! Amazing work!

    I would have to say I've already been on my dream journey. It was when we got stationed in Alaska and drove from there from Georgia. It was an awesome trip, especially when we got on the Alaska Highway! Something we will never forget! If I had to choose another, it would be a journey through Australia!

  143. My, what beautiful work on that pop-up safari card. Yes, you do like details, don't you. I can identify, as my friends tell me I have a hard time figuring out when "enough is enough" on my cards and projects. lol My dream safari would be to go where the Magnolia stamps are made, and to be able to purchase them outright, and with no $$ restraints.

Your attention to detail is phenomenal! TFS!

  151. Suzanne, Wow, I am playing catch up again. I am so glad I did not miss this amazing creation. I too love pop up cards and have not made one in ages, but nothing like this, you really do come up with the best creations. Your mind must be overflowing with so many ideas 24/7. Hopefully the more I visit, I may channel some of your creative energy. My dream vacation would be visit New York and Canada. I have been to the US a view times but have not made it to NY, I would love to visit in the winter and visit a winter wonderland. Have a wonderful week. Hugs Jodie from Oz

  152. Wow, what a great pop up card. I love all the images you used.
