Happy Halloween.

Good morning....Happy Halloween.  Is the first hour of your day your 'witching hour' - or at least until you have had your morning caffeine?! ;)

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with this fun card that I created with Pebbles paper and SU! stamps and dies.

I mounted the cup on foam squares for some dimension.

In All Things...

I'm nearing the end of my fall cards... will be breaking out my Christmas and Winter products very soon!

Today I have another clean and simple card.  Once again using my  new Collage Die from MFT.  This time I have paired it with some die cuts from the Harvest collection by Pebbles.

A super simple card.  I have mounted the die cuts on foam squares.  The sentiment tag is cut from some of the pattern paper in the collection.

Fall is....

I just received this collage die from MFT and had to use it. 
I used a woodgrain texture plate from PTI to do the background paper, then added the collage die cut (MFT).  I stamped and colored the sentiment on the negative pieces then inserted.  The leaves are stamped and die cut from cardstock and of course, stitched on. 

I thought the sentiment (Impression Obsession) was perfect for this inspiration:


Also playing at Simon Says.... Anything goes.

Stay Cozy

I absolutely couldn't wait to play with my new stamp set from Ellen Hutson (Cozy Lady).  I just received her in the mail today and inked her up as soon as I could!  I used the Warm and Cozy collection by Pebbles to paper piece her. 

The stamped sentiment is from Concord & 9th (Cozy Up)

Warmest Wishes

I am loving a bunch of challenges this week and have not much play time... isn't that the way things go?! ;)

I'm transitioning into winter - even though the weather here is absolutely amazing...!  Gorgeous, sunn fall weather - there is nothing better.

I used my Hot Cocoa collection by American Crafts and paired it with a stamp set from My Favorite Things (Hug in a Mug).

To cut the frame, I used the Basic Rectangle from Simon Says. I fussy cut that tiny little mug and adhered it to the snowman's arm.

Nuts but I love ya...

I played with yet another acorn... this one is from Unity - Nuts but I love ya...

Not much to say, pretty simple really.  The acorns have been mounted on foam squares.

Autumn Greetings

I was having withdrawals from my Crate Paper so I dug into the Open Book collection.  There is something about Crate Paper that just always makes my heart happy.

Of course.... another fall card ;)

I paired it up with the Happy Harvest die from Reverse Confetti.  Once again, upcycling some packaging for the acorn.

The sentiment is from Right At Home.  To add more interest to the acorn.  I added a corrugated heart from SU! and of course a button.... a stash I have almost gotten rid of many times but it appears that I have a thing for buttons again ;)

Playing along with:




One sketch... two different cards.

I really like this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday and just may even squeeze in another card with it :)


First up, I just had to use this new cute little stamp set from MFT.  Will be making treat holders with it next.  The background script is also from MFT.  The plaid background is a new stamp from Concord & 9th.  I added some interest using my Washi Tape from SU!


Playing along with a couple of challenges:



Next up, another autumn card.  I wanted to upcycle the textured packaging for a Reverse Confetti  acorn so that is just what I did :) The background woodgrain is from SU!.  I also used a sentiment from the Nuts About You from Reverse Confetti along with the sentiment die from Simon Says.

Get Well

I dug out some old Pink Paislee paper and created a card for 'think pink' month of October.  I used some MFT dies and not much else to say... a clean and simple card.
