Wreath of Joy

Hi there....

Sneaking this just under the wire at the Winnie & Walter challenge.

Let me just tell you how much I love this stamp/die company.....

They have the trendiest stamps and dies, but they also offer Digital Cutaways to use with your Silhouette, Cricut, etc.

Love, love, love!!!

On this holiday card I have used their In a Word: Holiday Digital Cutaways.

I increased the size by about 1/2 inch.
Completely coated the "Joy" and wreath with Ultrafine Glitter.
Color elements are washi tape.

so Happy

Hidey ho.....

Had a little bit of time in my favorite room yesterday to play.

This may be one of my favorite color combos...Coral and Navy!

Playing at Altenew with this little cutie:

I have been making so many holiday cards lately, it felt good to use a non-holiday stamp set.

White card stock was stamped, then colored with Copic markers.

This will make a pretty Kindness card for someone this month.

Sparkle & Shine



What a week it has been. Family here for the holiday, all that shopping online.
I am exhausted!!!

Of course I am never tired enough to miss a W Plus 9 Challenge.

Our mission is to be inspired by this sketch:

I wanted to use a stamp set that has been neglected for awhile, so I blinged it up a little and turned it into a Christmas card.

I have absolutely fallen in love with the Red, White and Aqua color combo.
Red side panel is watercolored. Sparkle/Shine has been heat embossed for a little glimmer.
Snowflakes were coated with irRESISTible Pico, then glitter was added.
(Snowflakes were originally cut for another project, then decided to go another route)

Blue Christmas


Squeezing into a couple more challenges before my house is invaded by family for our Thanksgiving feast.

Using a fun new die from Memory Box for the stitched circles and playing with my eBrush for all the variations in Blue.

Circles were eBrushed with Copics, then popped up with foam adhesive.
Love, love, love this new sentiment stamp from Damask Love.

For some reason, I am really loving gingham nowadays.
