Baaah Humbug

Hi all!  I’m back with what will probably be my last card for the WCMD festivities:


I used the Baaah Humbug set as well as the Background Builders: Vines set.  This is for the Winnie & Walter WCMD challenges – partial stamping challenge.  Here’s a shot of the Vines stamp that I used to make the little leafy hill the sheep is standing on:


You can see from the top portion that I just attached part of the vine to a little block I had and stamped it over and over to make the little hill.  For the sheep, he was stamped with my MISTI in Memento ink, colored with Copics, and overstamped with Versafine ink.  I cut the sentiment stamp so I could stamp the words on top of each other (I find cutting them apart easier than masking off portions).  I hope you like it and TFL!

May You Sparkle

Hi all!  Here’s my second card for WCMD:


I used the set Heart Diamonds from The Ton and watercolored with Picked Raspberry Distress Reinker.  The heart diamonds were all embossed in gold, as was the sentiment.

This is for the following challenges:

I hope you like it and TFL!

Happy World Card Making Day!

Hi all!  I’m going to try and crank out some cards today in honor of WCMD, so be prepared for some posts!

I’m starting with this card:


I used the sold out Stamptember set from SSS and Lawn Fawn called Merry Christmouse and the French Pastry Doily.  I stamped them with my MISTI with Memento ink, colored with Copics, and overstamped with Versafine.  I then cut them out with my new Scan N Cut 2.

This is for Power Poppy – sketch, non-traditional Holiday colors, and bling (the doily was cut from glitter cardstock) and Cheery Lynn Designs – anything goes and use Cheery Lynn product, and SSS WCMD challenge - anything goes.  I hope you like it and TFL!

YNS Challenges #24

Hi all!  I’m here with the new challenges over at the YNS Blog


And here’s what I came up with:


As you can see, I went with both the color and sketch challenges this time.  I watercolored a panel with 2 shades of purple paint then cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle die.  I added 2 diecuts from the Spooky Halloween Scene die set, and a stamped bat from the Halloween Phoebe stamp set.  I added a white panel that was also cut with the Stitched Rectangle die set tied with some black twine and a little star charm.  Finally all that was mounted on a black card base.

This is also for SSS Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes and Curtain Call – Going Batty. 

We hope you’ll join in our challenges.  Please visit the YNS Blog for all the details.  TFL!


Hi all!  I have a card for a couple of challenges today:


I used one of my new sets from Uniko Studio called Nature's Treasures II and an older Paper Smooches sentiment set called Many Thanks.  I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  This is also for Uniko Studio – Autumn/Fall with the optional twist of thanks and SSS Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.  I hope you like it and TFL!

Happy Autumn

Hi all!  I’m back with another coffee themed project for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  This time it’s a little giftie – a K-Cup holder with 2 K-Cups:



I used the Kup Holder Die (you cut it twice and assemble), the Kup Topper Die Set (for both the plain and scalloped circles), the Kup Toppers 2 stamp set (the sentiment), and the Kup Toppers stamp set (the little button image).  I was able to cut all the pieces I needed for this project out of 1 sheet of patterned 8.5 x 11” cardstock.  I finished it off with a piece of brown twill.

This is also for Power Poppy – Gifts from the heart, and SSS Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.  I hope you like it and TFL!
