September Blog Hop

Hey, I was so happy to be able to play along this month for Papertrey Inc. blog hop!! Faux chalk art how fun!  I chose to use the twig wreath stamp set with autumn adornments and autumn acorns stamp and die.

I also had some time to play with Septembers release with Deck the Halls stamp and die.

Here I used silver embossing powder on the wreath.

Here I used white embossing powder on the wreath and silver for the sentiment.

Have a wonderful day, thanks for looking.


A few cards...

Good morning, here are a few cards that I have been working on.  Hope you enjoy.

This one I raised some of the flowers by die cutting a few and gluing them together. Also I used purple twine and stamped the happy birthday right on the card.  The last card is similar to this one with just a few changes.

Happy spring everyone!


March Blog Hop for Papertrey Ink 2015

Hello, today is Papertrey Ink March Blog hop 2015!  Yes, I am ready for spring and these colors, aqua and yellow feel like spring to me. Although this morning I woke up to a dusting of fresh snow on the ground, it is still very pretty to me.

This new stamp set Brushed Blooms was so nice to use, super quick to make a card. Also used Chevron stripes, Inside and Out: Love and You've Been Framed: Oval. The card on the right I used foam tape to raise the blooms and the card on the left I die cut 3 layers and glued them together.

Have a great day and enjoy the blog hop.

Papertrey Day 8, Blue Ombre challenge

Another challenge, Papertrey Ink's 8 year celebration!  This challenge is for day 8 Blue Ombre.  I did the smooshing technique again with spring rain, blueberry sky and enchanted evening ink.  I used Life Is Beautiful stamp set and embossed the butterfly with the color leaf from Zing embossing powder.  The hello is from the Wet Paint Cuts Die.

At our church I do the bulletins every week.  I thought the cover for this week was beautiful with the blue ombre.

Have a great day!

Day 5 with Papertrey Ink - Spring into Action challenge

Hello again, I am starting to like posting every day.  Papertrey Ink's 8th Anniversary Celebration, Day 5 Spring into Action challenge.  I decided to give Laura Bassen SMOOSHING technique a try.  The stamp set Ruby Reprise is one that I have not inked until today and actually I used it to emboss the flowers. Oh and I also used Background strips stamp set too.  This SMOOSHING technique has a lot of SMOOSHING going on!!  I love to see how the inks blend together.  I die cut 4 layers of Plum Pudding cardstock  using the Wet Paint Cuts Die and gluing them together.

Have a terrific day!!

Papertrey Ink's 8th Anniversary, challenge number one!

WOW this is SO exciting, Papertrey Ink is having their 8th year Anniversary!!!!  Day one, their first challenge is to pick a color recipe and a sketch recipe. These are the ones I chose.

I started with the tag sale #7 die and used blueberry sky, spring rain, ocean tides and aqua mist  and water colored it and added splatters of water.  The hello is a die from Wet Paint and has 5 layers cut out of smokey shadow paper. The background is the burlap plate and the tags I seen on Heathers blog, pine is here, it uses the Happy Spots paper.  It is very hard to see in the picture but I did use wink of stella on top of the hello, I actually did 3 coats.

I hope everyone enjoys Papertrey's 8th Anniversary, I know I will!!!  Thanks to all the designers for all their inspiration, thanks to everyone that works for Papertrey!!

Thanks for looking!
