Use Your Stash Blog Hop theme Tool Time

It is time for Use Your Stash Blog Hop and this month we are using those forgotten tools. If you are coming from Priscilla's blog, you are on the right track.

 The first tool I needed to use is my ShinHan alcohol markers.

I love to color, however I am a little intimidated by the alcohol marker and so I longingly look at them, dreaming of beautiful projects and roll them back up in their pretty little carrier and off the shelf they go.

This card is created using our older Operation Smile stamp and I had created it several weeks ago and it too sat waiting for the ShinHan markers to be used.

I love how it turned out. I see more coloring in my future.

My second is tool I like to use for creativity ideas and that is challenge blogs. This is a Sunday Sketch, I believe or maybe a Mojo Monday.

I am always telling myself, this week I will do at least one challenge, but alas, I procraftinate.

Oh no, the card lost one of it's sequins -- off to fix it.

Now hop on over to Michelle's blog to see what she has created for us.

If you wish to start from the beginning, hop over to Marilee's blog.

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…
