Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's sketch week. I used this sketch to create a card using the Reach for the Stars and It's in the Stars stamp sets from Staampin' Up! I also added a little peak into the super cool DSP called Stargazing. I have many more cards coming that feature this set. A couple of weeks ago, when I received a newbox of goodies, I was determined to force myself to make 10 or more cards with each set before it got put onto my shelves.... Read more →

Happy Saturday. I'm so late with this post - it's been a busy few days. However, here we are, finally, with the recap of the 10 cards that I made using the Earthen Textures stamp and die-set from Stampin' Up! Some of the cards also contain patterned paper from the Earthen Elegance DSP. I'll start with the one that you haven't seen yet. I do love how rich these colors are and I think they are going to be just perfect for fall themed cards! Now, on to a review of the ones you have already seen: Well, that's all... Read more →

Happy Friday. It's another challenge across at Festive Friday this week. Festive Friday is a bi-weekly card making challenge that celebrates holidays/festivities from around the world.

Happy Tuesday. Where did Monday go? I don't know but the days seem to be going by very fast these days! Anyway, this is the last of the card idea posts for using Earthen Textures from Stampin' Up! If you are thinking of buying this set, June 21 is free shipping day :-) For my final card I pulled together some of the colors from the Earthen Elegance DSP. I love these colors together. As I've said before, Pebbled Path is one of my favorite new colors and I love it with Copper Clay. Here's a sneak peek of today's... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's Clean and Simple Week. The theme I chose was perfect for the Wild & Sweet stamp set - one of my new favorites from Stampin' Up! Here's a sneak peek: Here's our challenge for this week: This card came together really easily. I stamped the image in Memento ink and added color with my Copic markers. I added some blending to around the Koala and added texture by embossing a stitched border. Very simple. Here's my card: I hope you will play along with our... Read more →
