Let's Toast

I hope you are all having an amazing holiday season!
Paper Smooches is hosting a Ribbon Challenge for December. Ribbon is one of my favorite embellishments for cards. It's flat, easy to adhere, relatively inexpensive and I have TONS of it.

Cool Yule Moose

Happy December!
Have you started sending out your Christmas cards yet or are you still creating them?  I always tell myself that I'll make a few cards each month and then December arrives and I'm way behind.

This Cool Yule Moose and I wish you an amazing Christmas season. May you be  blessed to be surrounded by family and friends.

Be Merry!

Can you believe it's December!? I hope you all have a fabulous holiday season. This month's challenge at Just for Fun Rubber Stamps is to create a card for any holiday. How simple is that? Just pick your favorite holiday, create a card and post it on our linky party. 

I was inspired to create this midnight snow scene by a Jennifer McGuire video on Perfect Pearls. I wanted to use products I already have and was delighted to finally use my pine silhouette stamp. This card uses the second stamping of a watermark ink and perfect pearls. I spritzed the background with the new Club Scrap white Stipple Mist to add snow.

We look forward to seeing your holiday cards!

No One Listens

Happy Thursday!
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is hosting another fun challenge: H is for Home.  I had an idea for this challenge but that got derailed when I stumbled across this gorgeous, neglected collage stamp from Club Scrap's 2003 Hearth & Home collection.

WassUp Foxy?

Paper Smooches Stamps is hosting a mood board challenge for November. This type of challenge allows for all sorts of inspiration. It's one of my favorites. 

I was attracted to the little fox and the colors from the mood board and created this box stand up box card. The instructions for cutting and scoring this type of card are included in the Gone Wild Card kit. 
The card folds back to lay flat for easy mailing.

Happy Thanksgiving my crafty friends!

I am grateful for your continue encouragement, support and gracious comments. 

I've recently been rediscovering my distress oxide inks and their potential to create some magnificent backgrounds. I first created this panel by dipping my paper into the brown and yellow inks pooled on my craft mat. 
Just for Fun stamp. Ellen Hutson die. Club Scrap papers and ribbon. Pan Pastels. Ranger oxide inks. 

Stamp the wheat spray three times without re-inking to create some soft sprays. Adhere die cut title. Flick gold Pan Pastels on art panel with paintbrush and water. Create a three part bow and attach to card front. 

There is still time to share your artwork in our Color Challenge. 
We would love to see your creations! 

Have a blessed day!
