A Puzzling Situation!

I've been working on a new art project! A bunch of my scrappy peeps over at CropCircles  and I are doing a puzzle piece swap. We each purchased a puzzle and sent a piece to each of the members in our group. We then alter each others piece in whatever way we wish and send them back to the owner . The altered pieces are then reassembled and Viola! We all end up with a unique piece of art filled with lovely little messages from our friends. Warning: LOTS of photos!
So here are the pieces that I have done so far....
 A pink Paislee rub on over Heartfelt Creation paper.
Heartfelt Creation paper and Studio Calico stars painted with Smooch
Awesome Stampendous metallic embossing powder { my new addiction thanks to KELLY KLAPSTEIN }on a wood piece.
Awesome paint splatter stamp colored with Smooch instead of inks.
Heartfelt Creation paper and Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Stampin 'Up embosslit butterfly
More Studio Calico wooden stars painted with Smooch

 Prima dancer charm and music note rub-ons by ?????
  Gabriella papers from Bo Bunny
More Bo Bunny papers
Can you guess that I did these three pieces at the same sitting? lol Bo Bunny again!

Lots of clock stamps...largest one stamped using the Stampendous emboss powder again.

This is one of the shabby colors in this line of Stampendous powders. Isn't it gorgeous???
Another in the metallic line of embossing powders...this one is called Hunter green
And this is the last one that I have done so far... I looooove the pink shabby embossing powder...soooo pretty!
I used a variety of stamped verses from several different sets including Unity Stamps, Inkadinkadoo,Tim Holtz and Maya Road.
I am soooo anxious to get my puzzle pieces back from the girls! Can't wait to get my puzzle re- assembled  and hanging on my craft room wall. I'll share that with you when it gets completed. Thanks for popping by today. Happy scrapping!

DT Post for CCC { Monograms!}

                  It's DT revel day at Catherine and Cathy Create and our tag challenge for October is

Here's my tag and I figured if I was making a pretty monogrammed tag to go up on my wall then I might as well use my own monogram, right?
Well I must confess that I don't actually own an alphabet set from Stampin' Up...yet! So I had to do a little improvising. I dug through my stamp sets and came up with a lovely Christmas stamp from two years ago called Christmas Postcard and by using my SU marker was able to color in just the "M" and stamp it onto white card stock.{ Perhaps I could suggest the alphabet stamp set to Santa? If anyone sees him could you pass that along ?}
Stampin' Up supplies for this project include:
Everyday Enchantment papers  126154
Christmas Postcard stamp 121428
Baja Breeze ink
Cherry cobbler ink and marker
Mambo melon card stock
white card stock
Dazzling Diamonds
Curly Label punch 119851
1 3/8" circle punch 119680
1" circle punch 118861
corner ticket punch
Natural Trim 129287
In case you are wondering where I used the circle punches.... I used them to make those paper flowers on my tag! Cute eh?
Thanks for dropping by today. Happy stamping! Toodles!
