Celebrate good times

Hi everyone! I think Mother Nature is trying to fool us... we've only had a few wintery days so far. It's been unseasonably warm here in north Florida and it doesn't even feel like Christmas is upon us! But warm or cold, I'm happy to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #44 - When Nature Calls! We want to see your projects depicting something found in nature - living or inanimate. Come play with us! We're being sponsored this time by Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet!

I chose the awesome digital stamp and matching papers from Coosty Creations with Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet for my monochromatic birthday card. I matted all the layered elements on gray and then black cardstock. Love, love, love! This was such a joy to make with all the matching papers, and super easy!


I stamped the front sentiment in black ink, matted it on black cardstock and popped it onto the focal image at angle. I used some gray and white polka dotted buttons in the upper right corner, and created a bow out of gray wrinkled ribbon topped with a large flat-back pearl.


I kept the inside simple with a stamped birthday sentiment on a panel matted on gray cardstock.


Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock; Colorbok textured gray cardstock; Marco's black cardstock
  • Cats Digital Stamp and Paper Pack from Coosty Creations with Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet
  • Front sentiment from GKD Stamper's Favorites stamp set
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Inside sentiment from GKD Signs of Spring stamp set
  • Buttons from Papermania Capsule Collection
  • Prairie Bird Boutique gray wrinkled ribbon

I hope you've been inspired to create a project featuring something found in nature, whether it's living or inanimate! And be sure to check out all the fun digital images at Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)

Merry & Bright

I spent a some time in the scrap room today making a few Christmas cards. The hubby left Friday to work out of town for a couple days, so I had the whole day to myself. I created a couple fun shadow box cards - a nativity scene and a winter village scene - for my boss and a co-worker which I created with Silhouette cut files. So, when I was done with them, I got out some ornament dies, alcohol inks and UTEE, and created a CAS mixed media Christmas card in non-traditional colors. Wow, what a bright and shiny ornament!


And you know the entire time I sang "White Christmas" in my head... "may your days be merry and bright..." So of course I HAD to use the sheet music embossing folder!


And here's a peek at the inside - a simple sentiment stamped in the tangerine ink. Had to keep the non-traditional color thing going! ;)


I'm happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock; Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock; orange cardstock (old stash)
  • GKD Merry & Bright stamp set duo (front sentiment)
  • GKD Winter Cheer (inside sentiment)
  • Spellbinders Mix-n-Match Ornaments dies
  • Tim Holtz distressing tool and felt pad
  • Ranger Adirondack alcohol ink - Sunset Orange, Sunshine Yellow, Lettuce and Gold Mixative
  • Versamark
  • UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel)
  • Memento Tangelo ink
  • GKD gold cording
  • Darice Sheet Music embossing folder
  • Orange Queen & Co. Goosebumps gemstones
  • Large yellow flat-back pearl

Well, this is it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by - we'll see you next time! ;)

Sunflowers Note Card

Hi everyone! Several weeks ago one of my cards was a Featured Creation over at Scrapping4fun Challenges, so I'm happy to share that I'm guesting for them again, this time in Challenge #32 - Winter or Summer!


When I think of Summer, I don't necessarily think of water... I almost always think of sunflowers and hummingbirds, so that's the theme I went with for my note card. This is actually the second one like this I've made, so it came together very quick and easy!

I grabbed some gorgeous K & Co. double-sided papers with a foliage theme for the background and layered element. I stamped a sunflower border onto some water color paper, colored them with distress markers, and then matted all the elements on gold metallic cardstock.


I used a length of some gorgeous yellow wrinkled ribbon across the front in a horizontal fashion, created a big bow and attached a hummingbird charm. I left the inside blank to use as a note card.


I'd love to enter this sunflowers note card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock; Marco's Metallic Gold cardstock
  • K & Co. TC Foliage double-sided papers; Ranger water color paper
  • The Stamp Doctor Sunflowers Border stamp
  • Ranger Wild Honey and Peeled Paint distress markers
  • Yellow Prairie Bird Boutique wrinkled ribbon
  • Fire Mountain Gems hummingbird charm
  • Large yellow flat-back pearls

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in our Winter or Summer challenge this time! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)

All that glitters is snow

Hi everyone! Well, we're another week closer to Christmas and it sure has come fast! It's time for another fun challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and more - our last one of the year - and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for CCM #129 - Christmas. We're being sponsored this time by Sir Stampalot, and our wonderful (and I mean wonderful) teammie, Kim Reygate, is giving a fabulous bag of craft goodies! So come play with us! It's an easy one... we want to see a Christmas project!

Several weeks ago, I ordered a Crafters Companion Christmas magazine that included a bunch of neat Christmas papers, an embossing folder, dies, and a clear stamp set. So I thought I'd put some of it to good use on this Christmas card. I started by embossing the snowflake background, then progressed with several strips of torn cardstock to create snowbanks.


After cutting the whimsical snowman and his dog, I sponged some Memento Grey Flannel ink on them while still in the dies. I dotted their eyes with a slightly darker gray marker and then popped the die cuts onto the background piece with dimensional foam pads. I had a wire Christmas tree with colorful beads in my stash from many years ago, and thought it would lend just a pop of color to this white on white card. I adhered a tiny clear gemstone to the center of each snowflake on the embossed background with Glossy Accents.


I stamped the front sentiment in the gray ink, added some white cotton lace, then matted the background piece on some gray shimmer cardstock that matched the ink perfectly. I added a white bow and some flat-back pearls.


I decorated the inside a bit different this time by embossing a strip of white cardstock and adding a small scalloped border cut from the gray shimmer cardstock. I stamped the inside sentiment in the gray ink and matted the panel on more of the gray shimmer cardstock.


Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock: DCWV Gray Shimmer cardstock; The Paper Cut White Gold Metallic cardstock
  • Crafters Companion Snowflake Flutter embossing folder
  • Crafters Companion The Snowman and The Snowdog dies
  • Crafters Companion Christmas stamp set
  • Memento Grey Flannel ink
  • Spectrum Noir: IG4
  • Making Memories Christmas 1 wire shapes
  • Tiny clear gemstones
  • Glossy Accents
  • Really Reasonable Ribbon white cotton lace (from the October Club assortment)
  • White grossgrain ribbon bow
  • Flat-back pearls
  • SNS small scalloped border die

I hope you've found a little inspiration to create a Christmas project for our challenge this time! It very well could be another Christmas card marked off your list! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
Hugs,
Leslie

The Santa bingo card is a Unity stamp that I embellished with a Santa postage stamp from my stash. I added some gorgeous flowers and flourish die cut, along with a gold metal snowflake charm and a couple gold Candi Minis.


I gold-embossed the ornaments and Hapy Holidays sentiment on the insert, and brought the ornaments to life with some Copics.

Proud to enter this holiday card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • DCWV brown textured cardstock; DCWV dark green textured cardstock scrap; GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Cranberry Tart cardstock scraps

Happy Holidays

Hi everyone! Hope the weather isn't too bad where you are. We've had a good deal of rain here in north Florida. The hubster and I got away to St. Augustine for several days to enter his Corvette into a car show. We had a great time at the car show, did some sight-seeing and ate lots of good food. It was overcast the entire time we were there and then started raining on the way home, and has continued to rain and storm since we got home. And guess what that means... no internet and a lot of frustration. ;)

I'm a day late but happy nonetheless to share (finally) my Crafty Cardmakers and more project for CCM #128 - Distress It, sponsored by Di's Digistamps and Woodware Craft Collection. This challenge is being hosted by our teammate and blog owner, Lin, who would like to see lots of distressing on your project - not with distress inks but distressed edges, frantage or anything shabby!

I used stamps from the Gina K Designs Winter Cheer stamp set, along with papers from the GKD Winter Cheer and Cold Snap 6x6 patterned paper packs for my holiday card.


I used the Tim Holtz distressing tool on all the edges of the layered background and center panels. I also stitched the background and center panels with my cute lil' mini sewing machine! ;)


Isn't this little penguin just the cutest?! I popped him onto a background of shimmering winter trees with a snowflake brad on a pretty lacy square die cut. I used bridal embossing tinsel to emboss the trees, and they turned out g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s. And I just love that red stitched ribbon bow... you know how I love bows!


I stamped a classic holiday sentiment on a Spellbinders grommet tag die cut.


In keeping with the shabby aspect of this distressed project, I stamped off the inside sentiment twice without re-inking in a staggered fashion using a Unity stamp from the Tags Glorious Tags stamp set.


I'd love to enter this holiday card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury White and Red Hot cardstock
  • GKD Winter Cheer and Cold Snap 6x6 patterned papers
  • GKD Winter Cheer stamp set
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Copics: R27/89
  • Tim Holtz distressing tool
  • Versamarker pen
  • Ranger Sticky embossing powder
  • Recollections white flock
  • Spellbinders Lacy Squares and Grommet Tags dies
  • Versamark
  • Ranger Bridal Embossing Tinsel
  • GKD red stitched gross grain ribbon
  • Inside sentiment from Unity Tags Glorious Tags stamp set
  • Memento Lady Bug ink
  • YNS red glitter Gumdrops
  • White flat-back pearls

I hope you're inspired to create a distressed project for our challenge this time - not with distress inks but with distressed edges, frantage or anything shabby! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!
Hugs,
Leslie

I Miss You So Much

Hi everyone! I'm happy to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #42 - Say It In Color! We're being sponsored by the wonderful Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet and SweetStamps! Come play with us! We want to see your sentiment stamped, printed or die cut in a color other than black and white! Another easy and fun challenge! ;)

I used a stamp from SweetStamps Fanciful Butterflies set along with some gorgeous and very vibrant double-sided papers for my swing card. This was so much fun - I used the Sizzix Regal Flip-Its die set. It's another one of those sets with an amazing 10 dies in it! Love, love, love!


I stamped the butterfly on 40# vellum in Versamark and heat embossed it with SweetStamps white embossing powder. I then colored the back side with three of the colors in the papers - orange, purple and pink. I also added some gold wire antennae.


After layering some pretty die cuts created with other dies in this set, I stamped the sentiment on both sides of the swing mechanism in Memento Grape Jelly ink. I added some of my new fav Twinkle Goosebumps gemstones (in orange) in the upper left corner.


I didn't use many embellishments on this card at all... I thought they'd get lost in this vibrant paper! LOL! I did add some red Dot Sparklers down the right side on a pretty border die cut created with another die in this set, along with some gorgeous gold cording. That's it!


Proud to enter my 'missing you' card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Wild Lilac cardstock

Winter Wishes

Hello, my crafty friends! I have a bit of good news to share - I'm guest designing for Scrapping4fun Challenges again! I scored this gig a few weeks back when one of my cards was chosen as a Featured Creation. I'm happy to share my inspiration project for Challenge #30 - Anything Goes with Bling which is a Christmas card - one of only a few I've made so far. I'm still shaking my head at how fast this year has gone by!

The stamped images and papers I used on this project are from the newest StampTV kit which I absolutely love! I matted the background and layered/stamped pieces on Cherry Red cardstock.


I stamped the mittens in red ink, and cut it with a SB die. I have a treasure trove (bin) of Christmas embellishments that I only use once a year, and in it was the cutest little winter hat that I just had to add to the focal image! In keeping with the bling part of the theme, I affixed a white pearl to the hat, some red gemstones in the upper right corner and used some gorgeous gold GKD ribbon with a tiny jingle bell hanging from the triple-loop bow.


I stamped the front sentiment on a sponged SB ribbon banner die cut and added a pretty wood snowflake charm with a gemstone in the center. I also added some tiny red gemstones to the lower right corner. Had to have some more bling! ;)


I kept the inside simple with just a stamped holiday sentiment.


I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury White and Cherry Red cardstock
  • GKD Winter Cheer 6x6 patterned paper
  • GKD Christmas Wishes stamp set
  • GKD Fabulous Holiday Fillers stamp set
  • Memento Teal Zeal ink
  • VersaMagic Red Magic ink
  • Spellbinders Ribbon Banners die
  • GKD gold ribbon; tiny jingle bell
  • 1/4" Scor-Tape
  • Red winter hat metal embellishment
  • Red gemstones and white flat-back pearl

Thanks

** 11/21/14 Top Pick at Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog! **

Hi everyone! I'm super stoked to announce that I'm a Step Sister! Yep, a Step Sister with The Sisterhood of Crafters for the month of November! And I'm equally as stoked to showcase my first Sisterhood inspiration project for the Thank-ful challenge. Come play with us! We want to see the word "Thank" on your project (Thank You, Thanks, Thankful, Giving Thanks, With Thanks, etc.)

I used a GKD stamp and sentiment for my Thanks card, paired with some absolutely gorgeous (GOR-JUSS) fall/autumn leaves paper that I've had in my stash forever. It was the last piece and I'm sure glad I saved it. I'm an admitted paper hoarder... always feeling like I shouldn't use the last of a pretty piece because I just may need it at a later date. Are any of you like that?! Teeheehee!


The background, focal image and vertical fish-tail flags were all matted on brown cardstock. The flourish die cut was cut from the brown cardstock and I used coordinating brown grossgrain ribbon. The Thanks banner die cut was also cut from the brown cardstock, and that die was a freebie in my last TE order. Love that! And lastly, I used red Gumdrops for a little pop of color.


I layered two scraps of the red paper (used for the fish-tail flags on the front) matted on the brown cardstock on the inside, with the sentiment stamped on the smaller piece.


So proud to enter my 'Thanks' card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury  Ivory and Dark Chocolate cardstock
  • Autumn/fall leaves paper from stash; scraps of red solid and red patterned papers from stash
  • GKD Harvest of Wishes stamp set
  • Memento Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black ink
  • Copics: YR01/04/09/14, C1, YG11/63/67, Y17, E37
  • Magnolia Doohickey Swirl die
  • Taylored Expressions Thanks banner die
  • GKD Dark Chocolate grossgrain ribbon
  • YNS Gumdrops

I sure hope you've been inspired to create a project for our Thank-ful challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
Hugs,
Leslie

CAS thanks

Hello again, my crafty friends! When I told you that my mojo has shot up into super-charge mode, I wasn't lying! Bwahaha! While I had the new chevrons die out, I created a CAS thanks card. What better time than just before Thanksgiving, right?! I angled a few of the lines... I like how this took shape.


After cutting the chevrons into the front panel and backing the apertures with a scrap of some gorgeous Autumn/Fall-themed double-sided paper, I matted it on Tomato Soup cardstock and popped it up on the card base with dimensional foam pads.


Love the gold cording - this stuff looks good on anything! ;) The 'thanks' sentiment on the front is from one of my favorite stamp sets, stamped in Morocco ink.


I kept the inside simple. This sentiment is so awesome and really speaks from the heart!


I'd love to enter this 'thanks' card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Tomato Soup cardstock
  • Bo Bunny Autumn Song double-sided paper (scrap)
  • Paper Smooches Simply Said stamp set
  • GKD Fabulous Holiday Fillers
  • Memento Morocco ink
  • MISTI

all the best

Hello, crafty friends! Seems my mojo has shot into super-charge mode over the last couple days since getting over the flu! I'm certainly not complaining, though! ;) I'm happy to share a CAS wedding card for a friend at work who has a niece in her 40s getting married for the first time. She mentioned her niece is of Native American descent, so my feather stamp spoke to me, and I just got a chevrons die and some gorgeous teal glittered gumdrops that I've been wanting to use, so it didn't take long for my card idea to take shape. :)

My cards typically have many layers so this is very unusual for me, but I'm in love with it! The CAS design with white feathers and teal paper with teal elements really look great together.


I stamped the feather in Versamark and embossed it with white fine detail embossing powder, then sponged some grey ink on it, then repeated the process for the second feather. I embellished the feathers with a double loop teal bow accented with two teal cube beads. I stamped the sentiment beneath the feathers in teal ink and added three glittered gumdrops in the top right corner.


On the inside, I stamped a feather in the grey ink and the sentiment in the teal ink. I hope she likes this as much as I do! ;)


I would love to enter this wedding card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury White and Navy cardstock
  • Cricut Tags, Bags and Boxes patterned paper; white vellum
  • GKD Stamper's Favorites stamp set with Silhouette cut file
  • Versamark
  • SweetStamps white fine detail embossing powder
