Happy Tuesday I have another card made using Stamapin' Up!'s Earthen Treasures. This is day 3 of the results of me forcing myself to make at least 10 cards with a specific stamp set - and, if possible, matching DSP. Today's card is for lovers of layers :-) It also highlights one of my favorite die-cuts from the set! Here's a sneak peek: I incorporated the DSP and stamped images for today's card and it has several more layers than I generally work with! I was inspired by the DSP and the card came together based on that. I used... Read more →

Happy Saturday. It's another CAS challenge at Addicted to CAS this week and our fabulous hostess Sue chose one layer as her code word for this week. This gave me the opportunity to ink up one of my favorite stamps from The Greetery called Sketchbook Roses. What I love about this set is that you can go to town coloring it, or do what I did for this card, and keep it really simple:-) Here's a sneak peek: Here's Sue's code word: To keep the clean and simple vibe going I kept with a very mellow, monochromatic color scheme.

I loved all that white space and the circular element. I stamped and... Read more →

Happy Saturday. It's not often that I get to play along with challenges, never mind having an opportunity to be inspired by three challenges with one single card! I used the colors across at Color Throwdown, the inspiration theme from Just us Girls and the idea of a single layer card from Less is More. Oh! And. Even better! I get to use a brand new set that I bought from SU called Inked & Tiled. Here's a sneak peek: Such a pretty color combo - I'm so glad that Color Throwdown inspired me. Here are the challenge badges: I... Read more →

Happy Sunday! It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's Clean and Simple week. LeAnne's challenge was the perfect excuse to get out some dies that I got from MFTStamps a little while ago as part of a card kit. I used three sets of dies - Paper Goods, Crafty Hands and Tools of the Trade. Here's a little sneak peek :-) Here's LeAnne's challenge: Tbe Tools of the Trade die set contains many of the images that LeAnne called out in her challenge, but I decided to go with scissors as there...
