Happy Monday. I hope you are all staying warm! I had such fun creating today's card. It was inspired by the chalkboard across at Fusion Card Challenge. I decided to play with the inspiration photo for today's card. I hadn't realized how many coffee themed stamp sets I had until I pulled them out to create my version of a coffee chalk board. I used stamps from Ellen Hutson, Altenew, Casual Fridays and The Greetery. I began with a medium grey base card stock from Simon Says Stamp and then used multiple greetings and white pigment ink. I didn't want... Read more →

Happy Sunday, again! I went looking for some challenge inspiration and saw this gorgeous bouquet at Paper Craft Crew. Immediately I knew it was time to ink up Oopsie Daisy from The Greetery. I paired it with Bottled Up - also from the Greetery. I got even more inspiration from the Just Us Girls Challenge - where plaid was the theme! Here's the inspiration photo: And here's the photo from the Just Us Girls challenge - it's a pink day! Isn't that so pretty. Who wouldn't want to receive a bouquet of flowers like that! I went with the pink... Read more →

Happy Sunday It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's Tic Tac Toe week! I decided it was time to use my Robin & Wren set from The Greetery purely because I haven't used it in a while (well... a week!) and I paired it with Blooming Branch, also from The Greetery.

I used a cloud stencil and some puffy embossing powder to add some clouds behind my birds. I die-cut... Read more →

Happy Tuesday OK.... freezing again - well 35 degrees below freezing to be exact! So, how about a nice cup of hot coffee? I'm playing along with the Card Concept photo inspiration challenge today and it was a perfect opportunity to ink up both the Cozy Cup and Winter Sketches sets from the Greetery. The Cozy Cup set was the first set I bought from The Greetery. In fact, it's because of this set that I found The Greetery. I was commenting on a card that had been submitted to one of the challenges I design for and was amazed... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week - and it's sketch week. It was a great excuse for me to bring out my Robin and Wren and Winter Sketches stamps and dies from The Greetery. Here's the sketch: I needed a background to separate the two sections of the card. I used my Snowflake stencils and then used the branch from Winter Sketches to create the horizontal element. I stamped and die-cut the little robin and added a sentiment. To add a little bit of shimmer and shine, I outlined the branch and the... Read more →
