For all the fighters, survivors and Angels!!

Hi all!

Today I want to stand still by this awfull illness,
which is affecting so many of our friends, family or maybe ourselves.
Although people are trying to cure this illness, for some it comes to late.
Luckily lots of people will survive, like my dad who survived Prostate cancer last year,
or the very young daughter of a family friend, who is now clean from her Neuroblastoma.

Lives will be flipped upside down, insecurities and fear will be taking over.
Living with an illness myself, although not as devastating as Cancer, I know how hard
life can be everyday.

So for those who are living this nightmare, I’ve made this image, which will hopefully
inspire and motivate these people.

It’s called “Fighter” and you can purchase her here

This whole week you can get her with 20% off if you use couponcode: TSCFigHt20

But for the people who are choosing NOT to use the couponcode, those 20% will be saved and donated to KWF Kankerbestrijding
which is our Dutch Cancer Society.


It’s not much, but I just want to reflect that TSC is not about financial gain.
Drawing is my passion, and I want to make people smile.

I hope you just appreciate the effort and maybe a little bit of difference in this cruel world.

Hi! I am Amanda Phillips. I live in South Carolina with my husband Rod, where we enjoy art, junkin, and being old folks conjuring up our next experiment in the kitchen. I have been around the art world since I was 4. I received my first box of Crayola’s, coloring books, and construction paper for Christmas from my Grammy :)..and clearly it stuck! Since then I have made a living with sculpting, muraling ,and some crafts . There has been no medium that I haven’t literally HAD to try. I am holding positions with a few paper houses, beads, and card challenge design teams and loving the creative energy that is involved in keeping up. I would like to thank Tamara for the opportunity to display some of my work on her blog and want her to know her images with their hippy chic and cute as heck vibe are wonderful! Thank you and have a great day!

Tutorial Thursday: Tent Topper card by Krista

Today Krista created this awesome card for you.

Tent Topper

Want to know how she did it?!
Follow her steps!

Tent Topper Card


  • 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of cardstock for card base
  • Scor-Pal™, or other scoring tool
  • Scor-Tape™, or other strong adhesive
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Additional cardstock for your main image and card front
  • Patterned Paper for your card front
  • Embellishments


Step 1

Score your 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of cardstock at 4 1/4″.


Fold cardstock at score line to create your card base.

The fold is going to be to the top.

 Step 2

Decorate your card front with additional cardstock, patterned paper and embellishments.
Leave room on the top to add your focal point. 

Step 3

Stamp, color and layer your main image.

Step 4

Add Scor-Tape™ to the lower half of the back of your image.

Step 5

Line up your card front at 5 1/2″ either on your Scor-Pal™ or your grid paper.

Adhere your main image so that the top of the image will line up with 0″ to create a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card.

Now your card is finished!
