Papertrey MIM #89 Creating Windows for a Floating Image....

Hello,  Papertrey #89 Challenge is creating windows for a floating image. I started with the Mat Stack 3 and Mat Stack 3 Layerz as my window, also using the Bells & Boughs, Winter Hills and Background Sheet Music stamps.  On the inside I used Love Lives Here Holiday and Bells & Boughs. 

I couldn't resist seeing how the red paper and lace would look through the window, I love it!  This was my first time with this technique and it was fun!  THANK YOU NICHOLE!!!

Enjoy your day!


Cas-ual Fridays Challenge

Hello, Cas-ual Fridays is having their challenge and I thought I would give it a try.  Create a clean and simple project using kraft.  I used Peaceful Pinecones stamp set and die also Bells & Boughs stamp set and hand cut out. I did use pop up dots under the pinecone and branch.

Same card just a different angle with the camera.  Have a great day!!


Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

Good morning, welcome to Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge! I hope each of you found some time and participated in the challenge.  It is always exciting to start the Christmas festivities.  The colors I started with was Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores and Aqua Mist (I do not have these colors so it is as close as I could get) then I added a few extra colors like Real Red, Pretty in Pink and some designer paper.  I started with Fabulous Frames Die and used the Background Super Stripes in Tempting Turquoise and Cool Caribbean, under the bells I used the Super Stripes in Real Red and Pretty in Pink.  On top, I used Bells & Boughs with the bow in Melon Mambo, the snowflake is from Winter Hills and I also added some glitter and a button. The saying Peace & Joy is from Peaceful Pinecones stamp set with some added pearls. The fabulous frames and the bells are lifted with  foam dots.  Well that should cover it, ENJOY the blog hop!!

Have a great day!



Good evening,
Papertrey Inc. is having their MIM challenge #87, stamping alphabets with die cuts by Heather. The stamp sets that I used were Christmas Poinsettia and background Striped Sweater.  The poinsettia is stamped in cranberry crisp ink which is a burgundy color.  Taking a picture at night does not do the colors justice, sorry. The die set that I used was the Block Alphabet upper case. Below I used double sided tape to hold my die cuts to the clear block.

Have a good night!


Snowman Cheer...

Have a good night!  Tomorrow Papertrey will be having their October release!!!!! Its the best time of the month!!


Beautiful Poinsettia...

Hello again,

I couldn't resist posting another card for Papertrey Inc. #86 the inside edition challenge by Ashley.  I think this poinsettia is so beautiful, I did the shading with copic markers.  The stamp set is called Christmas Poinsettia, I did have to cut this out by hand... soon I will get the die.  The center of the poinsettia I used the holly jolly die and used the berry part of the die and placed it under the button. The sentiment is also from Christmas poinsettia.  Along the bottom I used the heart border die with a twine bow. The beautiful paper is from Bo Bunny.  Also underneath the rustic white cardstock I placed foam dots to raise it up.

On the inside I used the poinsettia leaves and stamped off every other one also shading with copic. I do like to add a piece of designer paper on the inside to bring in more color and something that is on the front.

Today's weather has been lots of rain, it is a good day to make cards by the fire. Have a good one.


Ho Ho Ho......

Hello friends,

Papertrey Inc. is having their Make-it-Monday challenge, #86 the inside edition by Ashley.  I started out with the tag sale #5 die, the heart die and the holly jolly die.  The sentiment is from the Christmas poinsettia stamp set.  The inside sentiment is from think big favorites #20 stamp set. The designer paper is from Teresa Collins called Christmas cottage. I hope you enjoy.

Have a great day.


Peace and Love

Hello everyone,

It is time for Papertrey Inc. to have their Make-it-Monday challenge.  The challenge is to decorate the inside of your card as you chose to by adding sayings, random stamping or any embellishments.  This challenge was hosted by Ashley and it is #86 The Inside Edition.

First on the front of my card I used the saying from Love Lives Here Holiday, the Holly Jolly die with some pearls, a frame from my pile that was inked and the designer paper is by Teresa Collins - Christmas Cottage. This background paper reminds me of vintage wallpaper.

On the inside of my card I used Think Big Favorites #20, Bells and Boughs, a strip of designer paper and a dash of glitter in the middle of the poinsettia's. I left enough room for the recipients name and ours.

Wishing everyone a sweet day!
