Good tidings

Good morning,
A new Make it Monday #39 for Papertrey Inc.  Multi-stamp background building, hostess was the lovely Nichole.  I used a piece of white paper and taped off the bottom portion for a snow hill.  Next I used my the stamp set In the meadow.  Took out the largest snowflake and stamped that in brocade blue, #2 snowflake was stamped in night of navy, #3 snowflake was tempting turquoise and then the snow flurr was marina mist.  Then I used my night of navy and feathered the edges, also putting glitter on the largest snowflakes.  I removed the extra white paper for the snow hill.  I used the die for the boy that was sledding stamped him in night of navy and then I cut off his scarf(that was hard to do) and added some red bakers twine.  Added the sentiment and red birds.

Have a nice Monday!

In the meadow

 I received my new stamps in the mail from Papertrey.  The stamp set is called In the Meadow and I also purchased the dies to go with it. This stamp set, because of what the stamps are, like the deer, the snowman and the sleigh, that tells you what you can do with them.  They are going to be in a snow scene.  There are lots of possibilities on what you can do, but my first impression was a snow theme.
 I  think that made things easier and faster putting these cards together, which I like.
Have a nice night.

MIM #38

 Today I did the Make it Monday #38 Brayer and Impression Plate techniques by Papertrey Inc.  The hostess was Betsy Veldman.  I started out using the spider web embossing folder on white card stock.  After I embossed my paper I took my brayer and rolled on more mustard ink.  That colored rolled over onto white card stock really popped the white spider web.  I used the die and stamp set turning a new leaf and randomly placed them.  The friendship stamp set and die is so cool!!  I even used my brayer to roll on the lavender lace and certainly celery ink on the stamp to make the liquid in the jar. As you can see in the upper and lower cards. The spiders and ghosts are are glittered.
 The top of the jar received some googly eyes and the top of the jar some bakers twine.  As you can see I really enjoyed doing this technique and made five cards to send away for Halloween. 
Hope you all have a wonderful Halloween.

Happy homes.

Good morning,
Once again I used Papertrey products, love lives here, background stamps - music, words, polka dots, turning a new leaf and the dies.  Buttons, lace, sewing and twine.  I also gave the houses dimension by die cutting cereal boxes with the love lives here house die set.  Have a great day.

Warm and Cozy

Good morning,
Is everyone thinking about all the new products that Papertrey is going to be releasing on the 15th?  I know I am.  The countdown is so exciting, I actually think it is one of the best parts. 

With all the rain that is in our forecast it has got me thinking about dressing warmer and dressing warmer means more fabric and buttons. So on to my card.

I started out sewing a crisscross pattern on fabric squares cut by using the die from button boutique.  Then using the stamp set button boutique on top.  When adding the buttons I layered them with cardboard underneath to give it some dimension.  The crisscross sewing on the fabric took some time, but it is worth it when it's done.  It has a warm cozy feeling.  Have a great day.
