Golden Poinsettia

Good Afternoon!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at Mod Squad, Christmas Floral, Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes! and Simon Says Work It Wednesday, Holiday Card.

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets A Year Of Flowers 2 and Seasonal Labels.  I stamped 3 Poinsettias on Vellum using Gold Embossing Powder, which were fussy cut out.  I then layered them and added a Pop Dot to add dimension.  
The flower was then added to layered die cuts using Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25.  A bit of gold tone ribbon and one single gold rhinestone added for accents.  Sentiment embossed in gold and stamped on to an MFT Stitched Traditional Tag die cut.  Lots of gold and sparkle on this simple little card.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Merry Merry!


Hello!  Hope you all enjoyed your Holiday festivities!  We did.....and the weather has been so lovely!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at Papertrey Ink, Layered Stamping On Kraft and Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!

This was a FUN technique and I found the more 'off' I stamped the prettier I thought the outcome, well you'll see!

Check out Dawn's video HERE!

I used the Daydreamer stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  I stamped my images in white ink and then offset with the different colors.  Some are more 'exaggerated' than others and I love the look!  Inks in; Frost White, More Mustard, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red and Wisteria Wonder.

I used the Dotted Scallop Border dies from MFT, reversing them and layering (dots are not showing).  3 Enamel Dots to compliment the stamped white dots.  Using a White Sakura Glaze Pen I added white dots to the flowers.
Just a fun technique to try!
Thanks so much for dropping by.

Papertrey Ink November 2015 Blog Hop

Good Morning!

Today I am once again participating in the monthly Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

This card will also be entered in to the Simon Says Work It Wednesday Challenge, Holiday Cards.

Here is this month's inspirational photo:


I was inspired by the colors and the scene.  I kind of made my own little mantle setting.  Taking the 2 Lupines from Papertrey Ink's Flower Favorites (stamp and dies) I created my 2 little Christmas Trees.  Stamped in Always Artichoke ink and die cut out.  I then took a White Wink Of Stella Pen and created a soft snowy look.  Using inks in Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzaz I stamped 'ornaments' all over using stamps from Flower Favorites (large circle) and Daydreamer (3 dots and single dot).

I scored 3 lines at the base of the White card stock to mimic the wood of the mantle and mounted that on Silver glitter paper.  Added a bit of Tim Holtz Tinsel Twine to jazz it all up.
Really sets a Holiday mood......Fa La La La La
Thanks so much for hopping by.
Merry Merry!

When It Rains

Good Morning!

On the Great Impressions Blog today......taking a walk down Memory Lane.  Today I get to re-share one of my favorite Great Impressions cards that I have made from my time as a Design Team Member. 

Here's my first one, more to come next month.

I used the F448 When It Rains stamp set.  I adore this sentiment with these sweet little rain boots!  Sentiment and image stamped using Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I added a wee bit of Sakura Glitter Pens to some of the boot accents, they give it a subtle sparkle.

Classic and Scalloped Circle dies layered on top of a doily.  Corner Tabs, Enamel Dots, Black & White Gingham Ribbon, Jute Twine and a little silver heart charm as an accent. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Good Morning!  Happy Thanksgiving week!

Just a quick post with a sweet little card.  I will be entering this into the Challenge at MFT, Sketch.

I decided to rotate the Sketch.

Flower Button and Jute Twine, thin green ribbon, larger sheer green ribbon, extra buttons for accent.
May you all feel like screaming wheeeeeeee at some point!

Dynamic Duo

Good Afternoon!

Another little creation to share with you.  This will be entered into the Challenges at Stamp TV, Use A Snowman, hosted by my BFF Barbara Campbell and Simon Says Wednesday, Gearing Up For Christmas.

They are such good friends!  I stamped the snowman image from Season's Greetings by Gina K Designs, twice, masking off one.  Colored with Copic Markers and mounted on Spellbinders  Labels 3 die cuts.  MFT Notched Border die, Swiss Dots  and Snowflakes Embossing Folders to add a bit of interest.  

A little chunky glitter snow, enamel dot and pretty ribbon to complete my look.  I went with a rustic country look in colors and Designer Papers, I also sponged the focal image die cut to soften it.
Thanks so much for popping in, glad you did!

Snowman Shaker Tag

Good Morning!

I have a quick little creation to share with you over coffee! 

This will be entered into the Challenges at Stamp TV, Use A Snowman, hosted by the one, the only super talented and a wonderful BFF, Barbara Campbell..... and the crowd goes wild!  And Simon Says Wednesday, Gearing Up For Christmas.

Sorry.....lots of caffeine this morning (like always lol)

Just a simple little tag, but oh so fun to make!  I used the snowman stamp from Gina K Designs, Season's Greetings.  Made my shaker by following this VIDEO from Papertrey Ink.  It is my all time favorite way to make shakers!  The little guy, or 'Bucket Head' as I refer to him (with love!) was lightly colored with Copic Markers.  Added blue sequins and snowy glitter for the shaker itself.  A couple of blue grey metallic snowflakes from a small punch and a little red and white gingham ribbon.  I also used Spellbinders Classic and Scallop Circle dies. 

Darling little Bucket Head!  lol

Thanks for popping in....hmmm.....should I get another refill?
