Make it Monday #305, Love of Layers

This week's Papertrey Inc. Make it Monday #305 is by Laurie Schmidlin.  She shows us how to add multiple layers on a card. Laurie has a beautiful video here.

I first started out using the background basics: Birch stamp followed by the Mix and Mat: Plaid die using foam tape for my first layer.  The lovely Bells and Boughs, Dash away All, Jingle All the Way, and the dies were used along with the Quilted die, all using them for more raised layers. The outer edge of the Mix and Mat: Plaid die was sprinkled with glitter and red sticklers and sequins were added.

Have a nice day!


Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge #72

Good morning, Inspired By All The Little Things has a beautiful inspirational photo, so I decided to join in on there challenge. 

I decided to use Kat Scrappiness, stitched and layered Christmas tree die.  I silver embossed some of the layers and then added glitter to them.  I distressed the background with salty ocean distress inks and added water droplets and sequins.  The snow hills and burlap texture is from Papertrey Ink.

Have a great day and join in with  Inspired By All The Little Things#72,

Hello, this week I am playing along with Inspired by All the Little Things #70

What a beautiful picture of inspiration!  On my card I did some water coloring, embossing, splattering, lots of glossy accents and sequins.

Colors are Honey Nut, Americana and Ripe Avocado.

Head on over to Inspired by All the Little Things and join in on the challenge.

Good morning, how is everyone on this beautiful frosty day?  Woke up today to a white frost out on the lawn, love these mornings! Trying different lighting with the pictures.

Make it Monday #276 Kraft and Colored Pencils, Februrary 2017 Papertrey Ink.

Hello everyone, it is time for Make-it-Monday #276 Kraft and Colored Pencils challenge.  Come join in on the challenge, over at Papertrey Ink.  Today I used Simply Spring Borders stamp set.  I stamped the rows of these adorable bunnies and white heat embossed them, then coloring them in with pencil colors.  Also in this stamp set is these little dots, so I added them too. To cut the curve of the kraft paper I used In the Meadow dies and I used gold embossing powder for the sentiment.

Have a nice day!


February 2017 Papertrey Blog Hop

Good afternoon, it has been along time since I have posted. Papertrey Ink is having a February Blog Hop so I have decided to join in with the challenge. 

I have made a few different cards and they are all raised up with foam tape. I am sure all of you can name the stamp set that I have used, it sure is lovely and have enjoyed using it.

Thanks for hanging in there, there was lots of pics!

Have a great day!
