Let Us Rejoice


The Creative Team of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is hosting an insta hop today over on instagram with lots of inspiration from the September release part 1 and 2.
There is also a chance to win a $25 gift card by following the team and leaving comments along the way.

To make this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel for ink blending. I created the background by ink blending distress inks in Uncharted Mariner, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire and Villainous Potion. 
Next I stamped all the images from the Let Us Rejoice set, colored them and cut them out with the coordinating dies. To finish the card I added some stars to the ink blended panel by using some water and a white gel pen, then added the cut out images some popped up some not. The greeting is from the Endless Love set.

Grateful For You


Happy Wednesday! 
There is a new challenge up at Make the Cards Challenges.  Our new challenge is to use washi on your card. If you are like me, you have tons of washi tape.


To make this card I started with a white top folding card base and a couple of white panels. I took one panel and covered it with different strips of washi tape and then cut the Grand Maple Leaf (SSS retired) out of the washi covered panel. 
Next I took the other white panel and cut the Grand Maple Leaf out and adhered it to the card base. I put the washi tape leaf into the negative space and then added a sentiment.

A Frosty Hello


I am up on the Dare 2B Artzy blog today with this card featuring one of our new release sets, Frosty hello. I absolutely love this set!
I am a lover of all things snowman, in fact I have one of my trees at Christmas time that has over 450 ornaments on it that are snowmen or snow related.

To make this card I started with a white top folding card base, a white panel and a navy panel. I randomly stamped the snowflakes using embossing ink and then embossed them in white. Next I used some distress inks to ink blend the snowy night sky over them. I stamped the snowman which is catching them on his tongue, colored him and cut him out with the coordinating die. To finish the card I popped him up with foam dots and then added the sentiment.

The Gingerbread Man


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today sharing this card. 

To make this card I started with a white top folding card base and a panel of kraft Cardstock. I randomly stamped the gingerbread man cookie all over the kraft panel, then partially colored them using colored pencils. 
I stamped another gingerbread man on a separate piece of craft cardstock, colored it using OLO markers and colored pencils and popped it on the front. 
To finish the card I added some scalloped frames and a Merry Christmas Sentiment.

Hey Crafty Friend!


A New challenge is up and I am the hostess this go round. I tried to come up with a code word that we haven't used. I think I succeeded with craft. We all love to craft so have fun with the code word. 


To make this card I started with a white top folding card base and a couple white panels. 
I stamped the background on the panel cut to the same size as the base, embossed it and then ink blended over it. Next I stamped the crafty image on the second panel colored it and cut it down to 5 x 3 3/4. To finish the card I added a frame around it.

Cookies for Santa


Happy FriYAY!
Today's card is for the new challenge at Beyond The Blue. We are just a group of friends who follow Lydia from UnderstandBlue, thus the name of our challenge blog. 
We use Lydia's (and sometimes others) tips and techniques to come up with challenges for you to play along with. 
We have new challenges for you on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month, our current challenge is embossed circles.


To make my card I started with a side folding white card base and a white panel. 
I stamped the Shiplap background with kraft ink and then ink blended on top of it with the same kraft ink to mimic a table. 
 I Cut two circles out of white cardstock and ran one of them thru the die cutting machine with an embossing folder for the "plate" for Santa's cookies. I used some Hero Wax in gold on the embossed circle and then added it on top of the white "charger" circle. I stamped, colored and cut out the cookies and placed them on the plate. 
To finish the card I added a tag so everyone would know those were Santa's cookies.

Boo To You!



The September challenge at Perfectly CAS is live and it's all about Halloween.

I am not much of a halloween person, at least not the spooky side of it but I do like the cutesy side to it I just have no one to send a card to for halloween so I don't make very many.  I also don't have a lot of halloween supplies. 
the die I used is older and retires but I still like it so I kept it around. The sentiment however is from a Gina K Designs set that I have linked below. 


To make this card, I started with a white top folding card base and a white pael. I created a background by ink blending Creamsicle and Purple Galaxy on a smaller panel to fit behind the window. I used a glitter marker over the strands of the web to give it sparkle.

Staying Crafty with Autumn Leaves



Today I have another card for our Stay Crafty challenge at A Blog Named Hero. 
I am not normally make a mixed media card but when I saw Libby from Hero Arts use this Hero Wax with the Brick Wall stencil, I couldn't help but use it with these leaf dies.


To make this card I started with a white top folding card base, a white panel and a panel of watercolor paper. I created a background for the leaves using the Hero Wax and the Brick Wall stencil.
I cut the Autumn Leaves using watercolor paper and then colored then with Hero Arts liquid watercolors. 
To finish the card I arranged the die cuts around the background and then I cut the "thanks" out of Pitch Black cardstock and added to the center leaf.

My Monthly Hero Meets Addicted to Stamps & More


A new challenge is up at Addicted to Stamps and More. It's time for our birthday challenge and if you are like me you can always use some more birthday cards in your stash.


To make this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel and the September My Monthly Hero card kit. 
I created a background by using the background stamp that comes in the kit, stamped it with embossing ink but did not using embossing powder. Next I  did a little ink blending over the embossing ink with Lemon Drop, Creamsicle and Purple Galaxy inks which resisted the embossing ink for a subtle background. I stamped the floral image from the kit with embossing ink on mustard cardstock and embossed it with white powder, colored it using colored pencils and then cut it out with the coordinating die. 
I finish the card, I popped the image up and added the birthday greeting to fit the challenge.
