November Guest Designer for Butterfly Reflections, Ink!

I was pretty excited when Vanessa asked me to be the November Guest Designer for Butterfly Reflections, Ink! Today I am sharing a Fall, Lawn Fawn inspired card using goodies from the shop. To create my card I used the adorable set "Into The Woods".

                                           I also used  the "Stitched Hilllside Borders" die collection:

    To create my card I stamped and cut out the fox, tree, clouds and leaves...lots and lots of leaves. lol I assembled my scene and stamped a few extra clouds to give my sky a little dimension.  I used my Chameleon Marker Pens to color the fox! These markers are seriously, SO MUCH FUN to use! If you haven't visited the website to see how they work you need to!

   I hope you like my card, and I hope you will check out Butterfly Reflections, Ink, because it is a fantastic store, with lightning fast shipping, and the owner is super sweet! Thanks for stopping by!

Gentle Peace By Stampin' Up! - Stained Glass Stamping

        So, I think Stampin' Up!'s latest photopolymer stamp set Gentle Peace may be one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets ..ever! I colored this image with Stampin' Up Blendabilities, and my Chameleon pens. I love the simplistic beauty of this image, and coloring it was so relaxing. I also love the "flatness" of this card, which will make mailing a lot more cost effective, you'll only need one stamp! Here is the set in its entirety

Hey Little Pumpkin


   Halloween is tomorrow, and today is the perfect day to share a couple of projects I created featuring pumpkins! First up is a card. I used the Papertrey Ink Pumpkin Builder dies to create the shaped pumpkin. I started out by stamping the wood grain pattern using my Stampin' Up Hardwood background stamp. Next I cut out the pumpkin pattern. I assembled the pieces and glued them to the pumpkin base. I added a cute pumpkin stamped image, and the matching sentiment. The stem is from the PTI set The Sweet Life.

Next up is a super fun burlap treat bag I made using the same PTI Pumpkin Builders die. I die-cut a piece of plain burlap and used my Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie ink and a sponge to add the color. I die cut the jack-o-lantern face using black felt. I glued the pieces to the pumpkin and added a hand stitched orange border around the pumpkin. That took a while, but I love the way it turned out! I finished off the bag with a matching tag and bow.
I hope you like these spooky cute projects, and I'm happy you stopped by today!!

Be Merry - A Tag Set

Hello friends! I have been having so much fun with my Papertrey Ink Tinsel and Tags kit. I am building up my tag inventory for Holiday gift giving this year.
To create my tags I used the tag die from the kit. I cut them out in white, and kraft. I stamped the "Be Merry" using Versafine Tuxedo Black ink. I added the matching fawn that I also stamped, and I colored in the holly and berries using markers. I stamped the wreath with the wreath builder set included in the kit. I attached the white and kraft tags together using a metal brad. I finished off the tags by adding a red glitter die-cut bow. I absolutely LOVE the way these tags turned out! Last I checked the main Tinsel and Tags kit were still available in the PTI store. Don't miss out on this adorable kit!
Thanks for stopping by!

October Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop! It has been a few months since I played along and I am happy to be here today!  So, I think my card may be one of the last cards linked up today, but this morning before we left to spend the day doing family stuff I just wasn't happy with the morning light. So, I re-took the pic when we got home. ANYWAYS, here it is! :)
I used this beautiful color combo:

To create my card I used the Tinsel and Tags Make It Market Kit, and the Stitched Snowflake Die. I re-shaped the seasons greetings sentiment and stamped it on the banner. I like this orientation better then the intended design. The patterned paper is also from the Tinsel and Tags kit.
I am thrilled you stopped by, especially so with my card being posted so late. I can't wait to visit your creations for today's hop! Thanks for stopping by!!

City Sidewalks


    Hello friends! Today I am here to share a card I created using the Sweet Stamp Shop stamp set "Holiday Town".

This set is really fun to play with, and it goes along perfectly with the other "town building" stamp sets "Around Town",

 "Baby Town",
and "Coffee Town".
To create my card I stamped and colored the images and lines them up on a fun die-cut street. I stamped the solid color trees and added the strand of lights that I also colored. I finished off the card with a button tied with twine. I'm happy you stopped by today and I hope you have a great day!
