Sweet Christmas!!!

Hi everyone. Nia here. I know Christmas is over and i hope you all had a lovely time.

I wanted to share with you a design I created for a christmas card using Sweet Christmas as shown here
I love this stamp. they are so cute and I loved working with this image to create one of my Christmas cards and so here is my creation.

I created this card by colouring the image using my spectrum noir pens. I then printed off the background paper from a cd I have, I added a red background to the image and the backing paper then I added the ribbon and the flowers (the flowers I decorated the centres with pearl beads I had in my stash)
I hope you like my creation and love this stamp as much as I do I think it is a great one to add to your collection.

Thank you for looking and i would love you to visit my blog

See you all soon

Valou - "Inspirational post with Elisabeth Bell's image"

Hello everybody!

This morning, I come to share my first creation "Inspiration" for "Treaserd Times Rubberstamps"!

It's a Love's card with a fabulous "Elisabeth Bell's rubberstamp"!

To realize this card, I used some paper " Magnolia Ink " and a fall of paper " Maja Design ", " Life in The Country ". Papers are inked to the ink "Distress Walnut Stain".

I cut the shape of my card with the machine " Sihouette Studio ".

I added die-cuts " Border - Butterflies " that I realized with a dies " Noor! Design ". I embossed them with some powder " Frantage - Shabby White ".

The used image is a digistamp " Treasered Times", "Elizabeth Bells".

I colorized it in the following way:

- Ink "Distress Tattered Rose" and "Distress Vintage Photo" for the skin.
- Ink "Distress Antique Linen" and "Distress Brushed Corduroy" for hair.
- Ink "Distress Fayed Jeans". 
- Ink "Distress Worm Lipstick".
- Ink "Distress Mowed Lawn".
- Ink "Distress Picked Raspberry".
- Ink "Distress Tea Dye".
- Glitter Stickels Diamond.

Then, I cut the image with a dies "Lily Of The Valley" and I inked it to the ink "Distress Walnut Stain".

Under the image, I stuck of the pale green lace and the ribbon " pink Vicky ". I realized a knot with the ribbon " navy blue Organza " and I decorated it with one " pink Lilidaft " (WOC).

Then, I added a die-cut "Banner" that I realized with a dies " Lala Landt Craft ". I stuck stars which I realized with moldes "Marianne Design" and some Plasticine.

For the rest of the decoration, I added the following flowers:

- White Rose (30 mm) (WOC).
- Blue Rose (30 mm) (WOC).
- Daisies pink (WOC).
- Pink snowballs (WOC).
- Flower realized with a dies " Magnolia Ink ".

I thank you for your passage and wish you an excellent day!

A Little Snow

Hi!! Melissa here with today's inspiration. I have to admit that I didn't know about Mi Ran Jung's images until they came to Treasured Times! Now they are some of my favorites!!

Today I used Suzie Snowflake. I have wanted to use her since I saw her. While creating this card, I learned why I pick the papers first and then color the image. I had a really hard time finding papers I liked to go with the image and the colors I used. Lesson learned!!

Ok enough of me!! Here is my card ---

Also be sure to head over to the store and check out the latest release of Valentine's Day stamps!!

Happy Holidays!!!

Peace on Earth!

Hello friends and family!  It's Tammy Louise today at the Treasured Times Blog sharing a project that's special to my heart! Back in the 70's we would use old red shiny ornaments or the ones we hand made in school, popped the corn and use the traditional star on a REAL treek!  Then we would get out the spray can of snow and either coat it with snow on the ends of every branch or get that little box of specially folded silver tinsel and coat the tree with hanging shine!  

Now a days, people are using pre-lit trees and buying bulbs that are shaped like our favorite Disney characters and then the topper is some organza covered Santa face, or a light up Teddy bear depending on our collection genre!   This adorable little beauty by E. Bell exclusively for Treasured Times, brought the old days right back to me!

image is Sweet Country Christmas by E. Bell
Dp is Maja Design "A Gift for You

The base of the card is made with my Darling Square die design, as are the fluttery little flowers on vines and the sentiment circle!  Then I've decided that Noor had some very vintage looking little bits and bobs dies for the corners, bulbs and that great filmstrip die!  This is after all the type of photo op you don't want to miss!  

I would like to wish you all a wonderful, warm, safe and blessed Christmas!  

For more of the details on today's project, please feel free to stop by and say hi!   Thank you for visiting,

Welcome aboard Michele!!! We're so excited to be working with you!
Michele designs patterned paper for card making and she's extremely talented!  I've admired her work for some time, and some of our design team members have been using her digital papers for quit a while before we brought her on board with us. 

Michele's Bio:
I live on the west coast of Ireland in a place called Co Kerry where I live
with my very understanding Hubby, 3 children (2 boys & 1 girl) 2 cats and a

I've been crafting for most of life - whether it's cross-stitching,
knitting, crocheting but for the past 8 years now I've been card making. I
always loved my papers especially the floral designs and I hated cutting
into them (I know it's crazy) as I didn't want to run out of my favourite.
So one day I started playing about on my computer with creating some designs
and I liked how they turned out. And as the saying goes the rest is history.

Michele has been hard at work designing exclusive 6 x 6 patterned paper packs just for our store Treasured Times. These Paper Packs contain 24 sheets of single sided paper. Each pack contains 8 different designs, 3 of each design. These come in a see through resealable cellophane bag with hang tab.

December Guest Designer Kitty!

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to introduce Kitty our December Guest Designer!

Kitty won our Guest Designer contest we had in our

Here's Kitty's Bio:
Hi I'm Kitty and I'm so happy to be a Guest Designer at Treasured Times! I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, and I just turned 50 this year. I began making cards about 9 years ago. Back then, I used to create mostly CAS cards, but now I enjoy adding lots of details and embellishments. My card-making style would be considered "cute" and my favorite subjects are cats, mainly due to my three beautiful kitties, Honeydew, Kiwi, and Snowie. I started my blog in June 2013 after being invited to join a design team. In case you're wondering how I chose my blog name, KT are my initials, Kitty is a nickname, and Fit Kitty is my user name on a fitness website I used frequently. Since I was already set up with the name Fit Kitty on Google and Gmail, I decided to stick with it. It would make me so happy if you would stop by my blog for a visit.

Thank you to the Treasured Times Design Team for inviting me to be your Guest Designer!
Wishing you and your followers a joyful day!

Kitty has made a beautiful project using our Ppinkydoll Rubber Stamp called Lily & Bamby available here

Here's some photos of her project!

Isn't her project beautiful and amazing!!! 
One of these days I'm going to have to try a stair step card! 
Just gorgeous Kitty! Thank you so much for being our Guest Designer for December!!!

If you'd like to join our Treasured Times Facebook Group you're more than welcome to join us here.

Treasured Times has a wonderful selection of both rubber and clear mount stamps by an amazing group of illustrators. Click HERE to visit the store.
