A few to share..

I was busy making lots of cards this weekend, so I have a few to share today.

This was for the Featured Stamper on SCS, Jackie. She uses lots of PTI products, so I had lots of beautiful cards to choose from!

Next up is a quick card I made for a coworkers Mom. She wanted purple and orange with a butterfly.  I think this fit the bill...

Love this butterfly!

Paper Casting Challenge

Okay. This was a "challenge" for me!  I had never seen this technique, but Dannielle's projects were so pretty!  This was my third attempt, and it made it onto a card!  

I used Mendhi Medallion and added some sparkle around the edges. I wanted to use my Tremendous Tags, but couldn't find them!  Haha, good thing I had my Tiny Tags to use!

Have a great week!

PTI September Blog Hop

This month we were inspired by this amazing autumn photo...

I couldn't resist making two different style cards.  This first one was inspired by the gorgeous sweater. 

And this one by the silver pot and harvest berries. 

The second one may just be my favorite. Enjoy the rest of the hop today! Hope you are as inspired as I was!

Fall Scraps

I made this, for this week's Make it Monday.  I used strips of First Fruits paper, and some new fun things that came in the mail this week!  How lovely is the new Bookmark #3 die?  I teamed it up with the scrappy back round and some flowers from Mums the Word.  Love this new serif sentiments too.

Thanks for looking!

Tea X Three

I just received some new Verve goodies, and had a chance to play with them today. I have Coffee sets, but no Tea stamps, so One Cup was a great set to add to my collection!

The sweet little cups were die cut and colored with Copics. The papers are a fun collection from Farmhouse that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. 

I even stamped the trio of cups on the inside and envelope.   Just a fun little friendship card.

Fall is here!

Today we are having our first real taste of Fall!  I slept later under cosy covers, and I'm still in my pj's, crafting away...(note to self.. Do not heat emboss on your lap...You will melt your winter acrylic robe...LOL). I've got two cards today, one with an Autumn feel, and another for MIM Halloween.

I just got the dies for this cute little bouquet of leaves.  I'll have lots of fun with this set now!

And I gave this week's Make it Monday a go...

I left some of the Hexigon cuts in place to make my little monster.  The Smokey Shadow and Black inks left it a little more smudged, but I like that it gives it a grungy feel.  The sentiment is from Polka Dot Parade #7 and it's on a diecut from Bubble Talk.

Thanks for looking, and enjoy this day, whatever your weather is like!

Crazy for Cuckoo!

After tidying up my stamping area today, I had to stamp a while and mess it up again...!  I pulled out Tick Tock to play with again.  I'm just loving all the little details in this fun set!

I wanted to make it in colors that could be for a guy too, so Kraft and Enchanted Evening were my choices.  The shutters and clock face are stamped in Encore Gold.  

Thanks for taking a look!

Make it Monday Challenge!

Even though I don't have kids with teachers anymore, I wanted to give this week's MIM challenge a try.  I haven't had much success with the chalkboard technique, and Erin made it look so simple!  I used my Fabulous Frames dies to create the bottom, using two dies with two passes.

I used BB Woodgrain on Kraft for the easel, and on Vintage Cream for the ledge.   Thanks for looking, and thanks for a fun challenge this week!

Three New Ones

I did a little stamping on Monday, and wanted to share them today.  All cards used the same set of fun Fall looking papers.

Love this new die from Papertrey Ink!  Easy to mix and match and fun to put together!
