Thursday Crafting


Hello and happy Thursday.  I have a few cards to share today.  First up is this card using Memory Box Life's Path stamps.  I colored the trees in various shades of blue, purple and green with Copic markers.  I am entering this card at Festive Friday #33: Winter Solstice (blue, purple, trees) and Memory Box #67: Trees.

Next up is a Warm Wishes card, inspired by the challenge at Ink to Paper.  I pulled out these cute Christmas Critters mice from PTI, sharing a cup of cocoa and maybe even a kiss under the mistletoe.  I used the colors from Just Add Ink #534 and am also playing along at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Fun with Dies.

My next card started with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #464, the colors at Just Add Ink #534  and the Fun with Dies challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  I pulled out another old favorite from PTI, Dash Away All for this card.  As fun as it is to get new stamps, sometimes it is fun to play with old favorites.

Last up for me today is this fun Christmas tree I constructed myself using some paper scraps I had left over from this card.  I had an idea in my head of how I wanted it to look, and did a google image search to see if I could find an image of the die I had in mind that inspired my idea.  What I learned is that this project is one of the most popular Christmas crafts for kindergarten classes.  Yay me!  I passed kindergarten (again).  

I am entering this card in a challenge that is new to me called The Rainbow Card Challenge #24: Holiday Rainbow.  I am also entering this card at Festive Friday #33: Winter Solstice (blue, purple, tree, snow)

Happy Howl-idays

Hello and happy Wednesday.  I am popping in quickly to share a card I made for a few holiday challenges.  I used stamps from 2 different Newton's Nook stamp sets...Holding Happiness and Canine Christmas, and with a little masking and coloring, created this festive holiday card.   I borrowed a pair of elf shoes from another stamp set, to turn my present-holding gal into an elf.

I am entering this card at Inky Paws #137, Fusion: Merry Joy Cheer (Christmas theme and RED), Inkspirational #227 (Red ornaments, Christmas theme, Cute furry pet), Retro Rubber #149: Merry Christmas (Christmas theme and red--my Canine Christmas stamps are 3 years old), SOSS #174: E is for Elves, WWC300: Anything Goes Feminine, and ABC Christmas Challenge Y & Z (Y is for your favourite things...a puppy!)

Let it Snow


Hello and happy Tuesday.  I have a quick card to share today for a few challenges.  To make this card, I used the MFT Drifts and Hills stencil to create a mask shaped like a curve.  Then, I used Uniko Let it Snow stencil and purple glitter embossing paste to create my snowflake edge.  My sentiment is from Studio Katia, and I stamped it in Indigo Blue.

I was inspired by AAA Cards #179: Along the Edge + Snowflakes, Festive Friday #73: Winter Solstice (blue, purple, snowflakes), and Less is More #433: Festive OLC.

Happy Sunday

Hello and happy Sunday.  I am posting 2 cards that came together pretty quickly today.

First up is a card with this fun grouping of plaid trees.  The trees are cut with the Memory Box Pine Border Outline die, and I used plaid paper for the trees as well as for a mat for my focal point.  I am entering this card at Outside the Box: Playing with Plaids and The Paper Players #519: tic tac toe (Row 1--patterned paper, die cut, embossing).

Next up is this shaker card using my new Cafe All Day dies from MFT.  I almost never make shaker cards because I can rarely get them to shake, but if I have a die that has a matching shaker pouch, I always have better luck.

I am entering this card at the MFT Birthday Project Challenge: Shaker, MFT Color Challenge #154, Just Add Ink #533: Just Add "S" (Shaker), and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Food And/Or Drink.

My Crafty Thanksgiving Week


Hello and happy Saturday.  Today, I'm posting some of the cards I made over the course of this week.  The current challenge at Lawn Fawnatics #89 is Happy Holiday Critters, and I am linking up my first two cards to that challenge and at WWC299 (Occasion is Christmas/Holiday)

I created a little snowy night holiday scene with 2 of the bears from Den Sweet Den and the Forest Border die.  I just love how cute these bears are, and it reminds me of knitting for my kiddos.  I am also entering this card at Shopping Our Stash #434: Let it Snow and Just Add Ink #533: Just Add "S" (Snow)

For my second Lawn Fawn holiday critter card, I used a tag I made a while back for The 25 Days of Christmas Tags using these adorable birds, and converted it to a card, and I am entering this card at Just Add Ink #533: Just Add "S" (Singing)

Moving on to birthdays, I loved the look of that metallic paper so much on this card, I decided to use a piece of copper colored paper for my next card.  I started with a three layer die from Birch Press Epiphany, cut the first two layers from white and cut the top layer with the copper paper.

Here is a closer look at some of the details.  I used a die from Concord & 9th to cut the sentiment out of a piece of black card stock, and backed it with more of the same copper paper.  I am entering this card at Seize the Birthday #204: Sparkle & Shine and Just Add Ink #533: Just Add "S" (Shine).

My next card is inspired by the Sketch Challenge at MFT #517 and the Color Challenge #154.  This is a really fun get well card for someone who is not very sick.

My next card started as a fail, but after changing direction, I am pleased with the final result.  I swiped a piece of cardstock with Catherine Pooler ink, splattered water, then tried to do something I saw on a video with versa mark and the stamp that I will use in my next card.  That did not work, and I was left with a very pretty colored background.  I sliced it up into strips, and used it to follow the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches #398.  I am also entering it at Just Add Ink #533: Just Add "S" (Strips).

Almost at the end....I started playing around with a new Hero Arts cling stamp and have 2 cards so far to show for my effort.

I white heat embossed the image and blended distress oxide inks all over.  Added this little moose I am enamored with, a popped up sentiment and WOS everywhere.  I am entering this card at Stay Crafty with Hero Arts #17: Thank You and A Blog Named Hero:  Glitter and Sparkle.

For my second card with this stamp, I heat embossed in black sparkle, sponged distress oxide ink and then cut my panel down as inspired by the current sketch at Fusion.  I am also entering this card at Stay Crafty with Hero Arts #17: Thank You and A Blog Named Hero:  Glitter and Sparkle.

I think I have 4 more spots to enter at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week, so I will enter the first 4 cards in my post over there.
