TTIC #45: Welcome Back, Margie & Name Your Challenge!

After almost being on a computer hiatus last week since my husband took off some days from work, I am back now with a new Twilight Tuesday Challenge! But first off, some completely AMAZING news!!!!

The fantabulous girls at Twilight Tuesday have asked me, Donna and Jacquie to become PERMANENT designers for the team! Yes, I said permanent! Like…forever! I cried. I really did. No, you may not laugh. The girls in this group are so incredible, and I have had the absolute BEST time working with them. I did NOT want it to end. So when they asked me to stay… it was like…DUH! Does Edward love Bella??? Of course I want to be a PERMANENT Designer! So, to all of my Twi-Girls… I love you, you all rock my world and I am thrilled and honored to not only work with all of you, but to have you chics as my friends. Truly. I don’t know what I would do without all of you.

But, before I make this entire post about me gushing about how happy I am (oh, don’t worry, I will be gushing in other posts!!!), here is what our fearless leader Tonya wrote for this week’s TTIC:

Wow! This summer has flown by hasn’t it? The kids are all starting back to school and I’m exhausted! How about you all? This week, we have some major announcements so I’d like to begin with those.

  • Next Tuesday, September 8th, will be a vacation day for the TTIC team. We’ll return to our scheduled challenges the following Tuesday. Everyone have a safe and happy Labor Day!
  • Design Team Changes! I am very pleased and excited to announce that the entire guest design team has been asked to become permanent members of the TTIC DT. They have all accepted and we’re very excited to continue as a team together!
    • Additionally, Jacquie has been asked to be the design team manager and she has accepted. Thank you, Jacquie! We’re excited to have your help!!
    • Finally, both Beth and I are going to serve as more “honorary” type design team members than permanent ones. So this means we won’t be playing along each week. We have good intentions to play along, but as most of you probably know by now, we’ve both started business ventures that are demanding our immediate attention. You can check out our personal blogs for more info on that if you’d like.
    Now on to the reason you came here! The challenge for the week! :-D

We are excited to welcome Margie back from her hiatus! So much is happening with school starting back that we’ve decided to do a “free day” for our challenge this week.

The challenge portion is simply to create any Twilight themed project you desire and share it with us! No hard thinking this week!!

The comment portion is to tell us if you are getting excited about the New Moon premiere coming up and if you are making any special plans for it.

So, I am very excited about this week’s challenge… I have plenty of “Twideas” that have not quite fit the challenges. So, I am going to try to take this week as an opportunity to do just that. However, I am now fighting a head cold (and so is Nix, plus, I think Rhi is finally cutting her 1st tooth!) so I don’t know how much I’ll get to… but I am going to try to do as much as I can this week!

I decided to take the newest sketch that Dani came up with for today. It’s Sketch #10.

ttsc10 Love it! I for some reason don’t always get around to doing the sketches, so I thought that this was the perfect opportunity!

I used my Lion and Lamb stamp from Dragonfly Curls. The paper is from Basic Grey, Provo Craft, and The Paper Company. Plus, I used a little bit of yarn and a Ghost Heart from Heidi Swapp. And of course, I inked the edges a bit and sprayed some Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist over the white of the card to tone it down a bit. Here’s a close up:

Inspired? Then get crafting! And as always, our Design Team has fantastic projects to display for this week’s challenge – please go and check them out!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
