Happy Sunday. I have pleasure in announcing the winner of the blog candy from this post. I also have a card to share with you featuring the Stitched Leaves Dies and the new Gilded Autumn Speciality DSP that is available from Stampin' Up! on August 3. If you want to skip the challenge and the card - and go straight to the winner of the blog candy..... go all the way to the bottom of this post :-) Here's the sketch across at AtlanticHearts I love this new Gilded Autumn Paper and I mixed it with some of the metallic...

Happy Sunday. It is my absolute honor to host our Paper Players 500th challenge. Yes, that really is five hundredth challenge. It's also Clean and Simple week and I am showcasing the Merry Moose and the gorgeous Stitched Leaves Dies (both in the new fall/winter mini catalog). The challenge is celebrate and you can celebrate anything you like for our challenge: birthdays, anniversaries, bar/bat mitzvah, friendship, Christmas - whatever it is you want to celebrate - we want to see your creations. Before I share my card for tonight's challenge, I thought it might be fun to share the card... Read more →

Happy Wednesday! I know.... I know... I know.... ANOTHER peony card! I'm blaming Festive Friday for this one - how could I not choose pink, green and flower from this list - oh and I added sparkle and die-cuts for good measure :-) I know I've said this before, but I really do love the Prized Peony set.

I stamped and colored the flower and die-cut it. I... Read more →

Happy Monday. I have a quick post for you tonight showcasing my favorite Stampin' Up! Playful Pets suite. I made this card using the great sketch across at Fab Fridays I used a piece of the DSP on the base of the card and die-cut one of the dogs for the focal layer. I used my stitched nested labels die to create the focal layer and ran that through my Big Shot with the Tasteful Textiles embossing folder. Made it a little difficult to get a clean stamped sentiment, though! I popped the dog up using 3 die-cuts from spare... Read more →

Happy Sunday. I can hardly believe that we are 1 challenge away from our 500th Paper Players challenge!!! But, this week it's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's color week and I'm showcasing my Stampin' Up! Sailing Home set. I wanted to keep this really clean and simple. I took a piece of white card stock and blended blue onto it as I wanted something to ground the elements that I was adding. I stamped and die-cut the anchor, the compass and the lighthouse. I colored them using the three colors we were allowed... Read more →
