September 2016 Mood Board

And here is my entry:-

I used Essentials by Ellen Mondo Magnolia and Lovely stamp sets.  I'll also enter Simon Says Powder Power Challenge.

Shaker Tag


Here is a shaker tag I made for A2Z Scrapbooking Make It a Tag Challenge using Hero Arts Wishes Come True stamp set.  

The actual tag is heat embossed and then I used Distress Inks, and of course some shimmer to add some sparkle ;)  

I'll be adding this to Simon Says Powder Power Challenge.

Thanks for looking!

Gift Set


A very quick post (as the clock is ticking)!  I've not managed much crafting lately as my inspiration tank is running low.  I did manage to make a gift box and matching note cards for an upcoming birthday and I'm entering Simon Says Gift It Challenge.

Here is the gift box using Hero Arts Antique Rose stamp to which I added a bit of shading.

I kept the note cards very simple so they can be utilized for any occasion.  

Hope you're having a great week!

'Til next time ......

For You

My next card was inspired by the Color Inspiration - Fall Colors Challenge over at Mod Squad.  Here is the gorgeous color palette:

And here is my card:

I used watercolor paper and distress inks and went for a bold and sketchy look (it's fun to color outside the lines ;)  The stamp set is A Year of Flowers 2 (Gina K Designs).

I'll be entering the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous week!

Thank You

Hello friends,

I have two cards I'd like to share with you today.

For my first card I used Essentials by Ellen Mondo Peony stamp and had fun with watercolors.  The gorgeous bold sentiment is Concord & 9th.  I added some shimmer spray to my peony and of course some splatters.  For further interest I added a strip of pp from MFT and a painted strip of watercolor paper.

I'll be entering the following challenges:
Essentials By Ellen Mix It Up Challenge with Concord & 9th
Simon Says Monday Stamp It Challenge
Simon Says Wednesday Stamp It Challenge
Virginia's View Challenge

Negative Painting

This card was inspired by the Use Foliage challenge over at Mod Squad.  I love leaves and fall colors and felt inspired to paint!   I used Gina K Designs stamps (Stamper's Favorite and Sending Love), Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors and Archers Watercolor paper. 

Thank you for visiting......

CAS B&W & pop of color

Last up is a card for Cas-ual Fridays Challenge where we need to use black, white and a pop of color.  I used Casual Fridays Mon Ami stamp and colored the image with pencils.  Added washi and a bit of metallic thread. 

I'm adding this card to Simon Says Anything Goes ChallengeSimon Says Stamp It Challenge and Simon Says Work It Wednesday Challenge.

And that's it for today.... have a wonderful day and thanks for taking the time to visit. 


All Lacy and Girly

My next card is for Cheery Lynn Lace Challenge.  I've been wanting to make this type of card for a while now and this was the perfect opportunity using the Cheery Lynn Designs Corset die and Alison's Ribbon die. 

I used the following supplies:
Hero Arts Starburst Lace stamp 
WOW white embossing glitter

Good Morning Sunshine

Good Morning and Happy Labor Day to my USA friends,

I have a few cards to share;

This was created for TCP Embossing Challenge.  For the background I used Tim Holtz Rays stencil coloring with Distress Inks and then I embossed it.  The image, from TCP Nature's Hello, was heat embossed and colored with Zig brush markers.  

Hopefully this will brighten someone's day!
