Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers. Currently at about 45%)
2. Teach paper craft classes.
3. Create Dies for Spellbinders(done)
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

It's your special day!

I'ts always a special day at the Noor U.S. blog!  Tammy Louise sharing a Copic colored project made with a beautiful Noor stamp called Silhouette Poppy.  I'm a vibrant and deep pigment artist so the more color the better!  Just look at how beautiful these little corner dies make the image rectangles pop and the gorgeous border die of flowers that cut and emboss that I colored with white pigment ink to make the design pop.  
 As well as the beautiful stamp, I've discovered a great deal of versatile dies that would add dimension and beauty to any project!  The flourish, those lovely little corners which are part of a bigger die set and the roses!  rows and rows of roses!

Sitting Pretty

Good day friends,

I've soundly landed back in my hometown of Michigan where it's cold, snowy and EVERYONE is sick with one thing or another!  I too have not been lucky enough to avoid the flue strain of 2015, but that didn't keep me from sharing this cutie patooti Candi Bean image that will be officially available on the 31st of January!

Sitting Pretty is her name and how elegant is she?  That cute little off the shoulder dress propped up against the cut little flower pot full of flowers!  And her freckles!!!  . . .  to die for, don't you think?

In this project, I was sure to use my newest die design just released at CHA, called Tear drop circle and the Tear Drop Border too!  I took advantage of the holes in the border die cut and ran some ribbon through for the added texture and placed those bright cheery flowers all over the die that I kept in the die, distressed with ink then applied glossy accents to!  The project came together just the way I had hoped!  I hope you get a chance to play with this die as it has soooo much texture and design, the possibilities are endless!

Hi There Betty

 This week was a very busy one for the crafting community!  The 2015 CHA conference took many of us away from out inks and papers and placed us together at one of the largest community gatherings of the year!

There were so very many wonderful people I had the opportunity to meet and converse as well as learn from and some wonderful booth neighbors to get to know!  The new products this year were stunning!  I can't wait to go down my "must have" list and show you all what I can make from them!

I'm grateful to be home with my family and back to the craft table with today's project for MiRan's Etsy store and digital images!  Her name is Bubbly Betty!  Isn't she dreamy?  Colored with my Copics and glittered up and shining with glossy accents and glitter along with my stickles!  Hope you enjoy it!

Happy with Gold at CHA!

 It's Tammy Louise sharing with all of my lovely followers on this last day of CHA!  This year the show turned out just magnificent!  Jody Stacy and I have been circulating images and talking to people while I've demo'd coloring and creating tags for the entire show.
I'm anxious to get home to me lovelies for sure, but I have had such a terrific time learning and sharing, peeking and experimenting that I can't wait to come back next year as well!  I guess that's called torn! lol

I've colored Leprechan Lara by MiRan in rubber exclusively at Treasured Times for today's project!  Coordinated with the gorgeous and lush Kingdom Green and gold paper by Michele Roos!  I place it on one of my templates int he shape of a Pot 'O' Gold and place my favorite little clover dies on ones side while filling the pot with every last one of my golden buttons in my stash!  

Fun to make but that image . . . .  Coloring to die for!  Get her while you can for sure!

Easter Chic Elizabeth Bell exclusive at CHA Now!

It's Monday here in Anaheim California and I'm ready to meet and greet some more wonderful people at the CHA show!  Jody Stacy and I have really been working the booth this year, showing off the lovely release of E. Bell stamps and the MiRan stamps along with the rest of Treasured Times collections!  Handing out catalogs, taking business cards, shaking hands, showing samples and eating in between!

Today's project is one of my all time favorites I think!  It's only on a tag but because I used a hexagon set of dies from Whimsy Stamps to decorate the edges with the gorgeous NEW paper collection from Michele Roos called Kingdom Gold and Green and the NEW Dewdrop die border and circle dies I designed, I quickly fell in love!
