Coming Soon!

I cannot wait for November 1!  The Stitched Shapes Framelits will be available for purchase before the 2017-18 catalog!  They will be in my shopping cart, along with some stamp sets.  There is a list of stamps that will be offered at 25% off.  These sets go well with the Stitched Shapes framelits.  They will only be available at that price from November 1-30 though.  I will post a link on the first.  You can click on the flower to the right as well.

This fun sketch is by the talented Ginger Toivonen, and the final challenge for Pals Paper Arts.  It has been so much fun doing the challenges and I will surely miss them.  This one made me think outside the box.  Thank you, Ginger, for the challenge, and to Mary Fish for hosting these wonderful challenges over the years!

I used the Christmas Pines bundle and paired it with the Layering Ovals.  The designer series paper is from Presents & Pinecones from the Holiday Catalog.  If you have any questions, let me know. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Hi Stampers!  I finally opened my Paper Pumpkin for October last night.  I have to say, this is one of my all time favorites!  I decided to add a panel of Cajun Craze to the card.  I inked up the Woodland Embossing Folder on the Sizzix side with Chocolate Chip.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot.  I love how it gives depth to the trees.  I took the precut leaves from the kit and inked them with the three colors - Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon.  Then I used the Layering Ovals for the sentiment.  I really love the fall sequins in this kit!

If you don't know what Paper Pumpkin is or have never tried it, you really should.  It's a box of goodies you receive each month for about $20.  You can go month to month or buy a prepaid subscription to save some money.  The kit comes with everything you need to create the project with the exception of scissors and adhesive.  It comes with an exclusive stamp set, ink spot, glue dots, papers, envelopes, etc. The month-to-month is here:  PAPER PUMPKIN  If you'd rather buy a prepaid subscription (1, 3, 6 and 12 months), you can add it to a regular Stampin' Up! order here:  Prepaid Paper Pumpkin

If I can answer any questions, please let me know!  You can purchase any of the items mentioned by clicking on the words, or you can shop 24/7 by clicking the flower to the right.

Here is the video for this month's kit:

Mr. Moose

I am in love with Mr, Moose.  Isn't he adorable?!  He is part of the Jolly Friends bundle from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog.

I started with a base of crumb cake, adhered a 4x5.25 panel of Warmth and Wonder dsp (just around the edges).  Then I cut out an oval with the Layering Ovals  framelits.  I put the two pieces aside for another card.  I stamped Mr. Moose in Early Espresso and used a blender pen on his antlers and gave him some roses cheeks.  The hat was punched out of dsp and whisper white.  He scarf was stamped on dsp and cut out.  I adhered both to the edge of the oval, stamped the sentiment and tied some holiday twine around it and popped up with Dimensionals.  I hope you like it!  Let me know if you have questions.  You can purchase these items in my store by clicking on the flower to the right. Thanks for stopping by!

This fabulous combination is by the talented Shawn de Oliveira.  I thought it would be a tough one even though I love all three colors.  Well, let's just say I ran short on time and I had to make it easy!  I really love the colors together and I'll use this again.

I used the Paisleys and Posies stamp set and added a few enamel dots.  I am beginning to love this set!  It makes for a fast and simple card.   Thanks so much for stopping by!

Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Halloween

Hi Stampers!  Sorry I've been MIA.  I've been crazy busy and I've been working on 51 cards for a Stampin' Up! Event swap.  I decided to use the Jar of Haunts for the Halloween challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.

These jars are so much fun!  I had the mummy sitting on my table from a previous project and decided to use it up.  I started off with a "wood "shelf in Soft Suede.  You can't see it that well but the eyeball jar is colored with Rich Razzleberry and then clear Wink of Stella.  I used Enamel Shapes in Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie.  I hope you like it!  Why don't you join us in this fun challenge?!

This color challenge is by the talented Rae Harper for Pals Paper Arts.  I love the rich look of this combination and it forces me to use Elegant Eggplant.  I never use purple for some reason!  I decided to do some pretty fall leaves using Sheltering Tree. I inked my stamp up with sponge daubers with the three colors and then misted and stamped on watercolor paper.   Thanks for stopping by!
