Serendipity Stamps challenge #2 Winter Birthday

Good morning, Serendipity Stamps is having  a winter birthday challenge #2.  I recently purchased some of their stamps and I am very pleased with them.  The stamp that I used here is called Winter Farm. I really enjoy the winter scenes with lots of snow out in the countryside.

Today is one of those days we are receiving a lot of snow, schools are closed, probably almost in the whole state of Wisconsin. I love these days, you get to hug and snuggle indoors.  Below I took a couple of pictures peeking out my front door this morning around 8:30 am. We should get anywhere between 9 and 14 inches of SNOW!!!  It is beautiful, crisp and clean!

Enjoy your day and don't forget to check out Serendipity Blog for the challenge!


Papertrey #96 Patchwork die-cuts

You've got mail!!! Papertrey's Make it Monday # 96.  Melissa made a gorgeous card on her video on patchwork die-cuts.  I decided to use the tiny envelope die for the patchwork focal point. I love how Melissa used the fancy flourishes but I don't have that stamp so I used the Turning a New Leaf stamp and added glittered hearts. There are two sizes of hearts in the Love Lives Here stamp set that I used, also using tag its #11 for the arrows and rows of hearts and for the sentiment I used Pretty Peonies. Finishing off the envelope I added a double flower of felt from Flower Fusion #3 die.

Have a great day!


Make-it-Monday #95, layered glitter shapes

Good morning, Papertrey is having their Make-it-Monday challenge this week.  The challenge is Layered Glitter Shapes #95. I used tag sale #2, heart die and block alphabet upper case die. I couldn't decide which picture I liked best so I posted both.  

Have a great day!!


Make-it-Monday challenge #94

Hello everyone, this card is for Papertrey Inc. Make-it-Monday challenge #94.  The challenge is called the detail glitter technique. I used tag its #9 stamp set and limitless layers and the snowflake die. The snowflake and the center of the snowflake is placed on pop ups.

Thanks for looking and have a great night.


Two Papertrey Challenges #94 and Christmas is coming

Hello everyone, I hope you holidays are going well. So far this December the weather has been warm, upper 50's yesterday, so shopping has been nice. Although I hope snow comes soon, I need to have that fluffy, sparkly, crunchy, cold snow for Christmas. Today I am entering this card in the Make-it-Monday challenge #94 Detail Glitter Technique for Papertrey Ink. Even though it is detail glitter, I might have done a little more than I should have, but than again maybe not! The Winter Hills stamp set is a joy to work with, love that house (it is paper pieced) and trees! Along with that set I couldn't resist Melissa's stamp set Love Lives Here Holiday.  That sentiment goes so nicely with that house.  Banner border die I used along the top with the Holly Jolly die.  As you can see the heart border die has the glitter. I am also entering this in A Passion for Papertrey Challenge.  The challenge is Christmas is Coming.

Have a nice day!
