Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us: It took me a while to work out what I wanted to do with that circle. I was staring at the sketch on my craft desk when I noticed a piece of patterned paper that had been sitting there since I made my last card. Once I saw what was on the paper, I realized that I had the perfect stamp and die for it :-) Here's the paper: Yep... .coffee beans! So the vertical... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Raga's turn to host our Addicted to CAS Challenge and this is her code word: I was really tempted to do florals, but, as I needed some cards for Cards4hospitalizedkids, I decided not to :-). I looked in my stash and found this cute little bumble bee. He/she comes with different facial expressions and even has accessories like a hair bow! So, for my contrast I am going with black and yellow. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to use for a sentiment until I looked through my stamps and realized... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Easter Sunday. It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's Clean and Simple Week.

So, I got some left over plaid and stamped out the... Read more →

Hi Everyone. I have a quick post for you tonight. I saw this great sketch across at Freshly Made and decided I liked it so much that I was inspired to make two cards. Tonight's card is the second card I made with the sketch. One of my favorite Altenew sets is the Build a Flower Magnolia and I decided it would really well as the left hand element. I stamped and colored it with my Copics and it gave me a very subtle look and I really liked it. However, once I had assembled the card, I decided it... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and she has a color challenge for us: These aren't colors I would generally put together simply because I dislike Calypso Coral! :-). I don't have Balmy Blue in my stash, so had to make do. It took me a little while to determine what I was going to do - I SO wanted to do florals, but decided not to go all in on them. I also made a square card - mmmmmm... can't remember the last time I made a square card, but... Read more →
