Happy Tuesday! I'm sharing a card I made for the challenge across at less is more this week. The challenge was to CASE the card on their website. You can see the card we have to CASE right here. If you visited the LIM site, you will see that I was attracted to the colors (primarily oranges and greens) and the way the focal image was broken up into rectangles. I die-cut three rectangles using my new Curio Divider die from The Greetery and paired it with the dragonfly and moth dies form the Curio Summer Finds dies. Also from... Read more →

Happy Monday. I managed to get into my craft room yesterday and made a card for Freshly Made Sketches and FestiveFriday. (Plaid, blue, things with wheels, clean and simple) I was so excited that Festive Friday had plaid as one of the options. I love plaid and have tried a couple of the stamp sets that allow you to make your own stripes. To be honest, my stripes made with stamps look more like drunk worms. I can never get them straight and get frustrated. However, The Greetery came out with two different plaid making stencils - one for horizontal... Read more →

Happy Sunday! It's my turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's theme week. For my card I used Game On from Stampin' Up! I think it is ideal for masculine cards.

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 Friday! I have another card to share with you using the new Stampin' Up! Forever Fernery set that will be available June 3rd. Over the last week or so you have seen multiple examples with more layers and DSP than I normally use. For this card, I went Clean and Simple the whole way! Here are the colors from Color Throwdown and the sketch from Freshly Made: I fell in love with the crisp black, white and turquoise colors across at CTD and was very flummoxed by the sketch across at FMS. Now... one of the whole things about... Read more →
