Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I got to spend some time in my stamping space yesterday and play along with a couple of challenges. My first card was created for retrosketches. It's a cool sketch and I used it for two entirely different cards. My first card was made using the Fine Feathers stamp set. I really do love this stamp set, but am often stumped on how to use it. I realized it makes a great background stamp, especially when you stamp in different colors. As I am so longing for spring, I decided spring colors were in order. Crisp... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. Hope you are all having a great weekend and staying warm! It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's a CAS challenge. Right up my alley! I needed a Valentine's Day card for Lou and knew that it was time to pull out a Simon Says Stamp Stars stencil and some of my new gold Embossing Paste. I combined that with the gold, black and white color scheme from the casestudy challenge last week and finished it off with a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Star Gazer additions stamp...

Hi Everyone. It's the weekend! I hope you are all warmer and survived the storms around the country and are enjoying your weekend. I must admit, I found it amazing to see that there was snow on the ground in 49 out of 50 states!

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I wanted to share with you the second card that I created for the casestudy black/white and gold challenge this week. As a reminder, here's the inspiration photo from casestudy this week. Here's my second take on the inspiration. You can see I brought in the black and white chevron patterin and the stars. I used the new SU Positively Chevron background stamp to create the pattern across the top. I used a sentiment from the Star Gazer PTI set and a PTI die. I used the stars that were left behind from the die cut... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I have a quick post for you tonight. When I was looking for challenges to play along with this weekend, I found this striking one across at casestudychallenge I don't think I've ever made a black, white and gold card before, so was excited to give it a try. In fact, I ended up making two cards. This one is influenced completely by the colors. I pulled out some SU DSP, Whisper White and Basic Black card stock. Of course, I need the fabulous new gold card stock, which I love by the way! I paired... Read more →
