Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. I have a quick post for you today. When I was crafting this weekend, I went looking for some inspiration in the form of challenges and saw this great sketch across at Casethissketch: The shape reminded me of one of the new dies that I got recently from Stampin' Up! called Frosted Frames. So, that was the starting point for my card. It took me a little time to work out what I wanted to do, but was inspired by some of the DSP that I got in that same shipment. I realized that there was... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I'm playing along with two challenges this week - the colors from Just Add Ink and the floral theme from The Flower Challenge When I saw these colors, I decided I really wanted to try no-line coloring of the Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia flower. Now, no-line scares the heck out of me as you have to add all of the shading and detail by hand and I generally rely on those being included when I stamp normally. However, since taking coloring classes earlier this year (prior to my little accident!), I decided it was time... Read more →

Hi Everyone. So, I did go back into my craft room and create another card using this sketch! If you didn't catch my first attempt, you can find it here. I went a very different route with this card and when I had created it - decided it might need another sentiment.... but I can't make up my mind which I prefer.

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I saw this great sketch across at FreshlyMade.... way out of my comfort zone... but I was determined to see what I could do with it! When I saw the horizontal element, I immediately thought of one of the dies in my new SU Texture Backgrounds set. I hadn't used this die before and this seemed like the perfect time for it. So, I had the horizontal element... now what? I couldn't find a stamp that quite fit and then remembered I had some Altenew acetate butterflies and decided that would work perfectly. I paired that...

HI Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and its CAS week: The minute I saw the challenge, I knew it was time to bring out some of that gorgeous double-sided Stampin' Up! DSP called "Feels Like Frost". This is the first card that you will see this week made from this DSP. I am absolutely IN LOVE with this paper! Sadly, the SU page does not do justice to how gorgeous this double-sided paper is! I paired it with a die-cut simple frame from the Frosted Frames set and... Read more →
