Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's sketch week. Instead of using DSP for my background, I created my own by embossing my Fond of Foliage background stamp from the Greetery onto Neenah Solar White 80# card stock and then cut that into panels to fit the sketch. Next I stamped and die-cut the leaves from the Hoop Wreath set - also from the Greetery and paired it with the Hoop Wreath stamp set. I die cut them and then arranged them on the wreath. I added a...

Happy Friday. It's another fabulous INSPO list from Festive Friday challenges this week and we have a wonderful selection of words to inspire you. I went with jingle bells, ribbon, gold, green and red! I pulled out and old set that I haven't used in a couple of years and spent some quality time coloring the image. I haven't colored for so long, that I had forgotten just how much I love coloring! I used my pencils and a little gold metallic water color paint. I really did enjoy coloring this image and paired it with a Crimped Border die... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and she has a magical theme for us! This was a great excuse to pull out my old hero arts fairy set.

Here's my card: I colored her wings with some watercolor gold metallic paint and added a little more shimmer and shine with the embossed fairy kisses. I pulled out an old whimsical stitch rectangle die... Read more →

Happy Saturday It's the fabulous Nancy's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and this is her code word: I decided to go with a colorful card that could either be used for a multitude of celebrations. I stamped the pinwheels in shades of pink/red and orange/yellow and kept with the theme by stamping the sentiment in red. Such a bright and colorful card! Here it is: I just love the Pinwheel Stencils from The Greetery. I bought them as part of a set with the stamps and dies when they were on sale last year. I've... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's color week! I was tempted to go with a New Year theme, but decided that I needed another masculine card for my stash. So, I pulled out my favorite SU set for masculine cards - All Geared Up. I paired it with an old Tim Holtz embossing folder to give me my silver element. Here's my card: I hope you will join us and play along this week. As always, the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you! Ann Claire Joanne... Read more →
