Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's sketch week - and time to showcase Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals - again! I have to be honest.... this Sketch scared me!!! Did you notice how many layers there are? However, I had fun playing with the new Poinsettia Petals stamp set and some Plush Poinsettia specialty paper - along with a piece from the Wonder of the Season specialty paper. Once again, I used olive greens and grey greens for the leaves - I am not sure I am ever going... Read more →

Happy Saturday! I have a card for you today using my favorite Stampin' Up! Forever Fern stamp set. I looked for some inspiration across at FreshlyMade and Color Throwdown: I love the inspiration photo from CTD - what a gorgeous scarf! I love the cool blues with the warm rust - what a gorgeous color combo. I made my own background paper by stamping leaves from Forever Fern in both an aqua and the softest blue I had. I added some Cajun Craze dots that I made using my stylus - I just dipped the thinner end into my ink... Read more →

Happy Wednesday! I have a card to share with you tonight that I made the last time I was in my craft cave, which, just happens to be over a week ago! I can't believe that I haven't been in my craft room in that long. The only time I have been in there was to put my newly arrived Paper Pumpkin kit on my craft desk yesterday! Last weekend I didn't get into my craft cave. I was so busy doing other things, including some genealogy research that I just didn't find the time. This week I have started... Read more →

Happy Sunday! I have a quick post for you today. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's Clean and Simple Week with a theme! I decided to reuse a layout from a couple of weeks ago and bring out my Stampin' Up! Playful Pets! Here's the challenge: I used some of the DSP from the suite down the side and stamped and colored my cat. I used one of my Ellen Hutson essentials dies to edge the focal layer and adhered it over the top of the paper on the card base.... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's color week. I used Stampin' Up! Forever Fern as the main focus of my card. What colors does Anne Marie have for us? Mmmmmm...... looks like I missed something from the challenge! I didn't notice the PLUS GLITTER OR FOIL until I moved the badge across! ugh! it would have been so easy to add a foil leave or a touch of glitter pen. How on earth did I miss that? Sorry, Anne Marie! I must admit that when I first saw... Read more →
