All Dressed Up with Christmas friends

I coloured this sweet little Girl with Stocking with Copics and then adhered her with some dimensional foam to some stationary that had the scene already on it.  Then I added that to a pretty glitter paper background.

Coffee Time


I die cut the opening on the front of this card, then attached a couple of embellishments.  On the inside I die cut a small scalloped circle and stamped it with a coffee image which I watercoloured.  I attached that to the card with a strip of acetate.  And on the inside I used the same fancy die cut from the front cut in brown, and then hand wrote 'thank you.'

Winnie's Double Gate Fold


Digi Choosday Challenge

This little card was so fun to make!  I coloured my 'Winnie Angel Delivering Candy' digi with copics.  Then I made a double gate fold with my Silhouette cameo, and adhered her to it.  I used a couple of dies to cut the Merry Christmas greeting and the trees/reindeer along the horizon.

A Special 70th Birthday

Thanks for the Pie Squiggly



This fun little Bugaboo digi has been mounted with a wiggly-wire on a 'So Very Grateful' word file from
The Cutting Cafe.  I mounted the circles on a piece of tented clear acetate, and attached that to my card base.  It's a cute little character that's been copic coloured, and that wiggles when touched!
You can see this and other inspiring ideas at The Cutting Cafe blog after Nov. 7th.

Creepy or Cute? CUTE!! For Sure!

This is the first stamp I've coloured from https://www.Di's Digi Stamps   but I know it won't be my last!!  You have to check out her store!!
This card has been coloured with copics for an amazing friend of mine who just had a new grandbaby!

(I'm entering this challenge as a CAS; it's my favorite because the stamp is a new purchase and it's just so darn cute! Adding too many embellishments could take away from the focal point: the sweet bear.)

Hot Beverage Treat Cup Holder


What a cute card to give!!  This is a great file from THE CUTTING CAFE
Hot Beverage Treat Cup Holder 

I chose a halloween theme for my cards this time, and filled the treat cup holder with two different ingredients!  One card is for a friend who loves hot chocolate, so I added marshmallows!  The pocket is deep enough for all different kinds of treats!  And the second card, I added some chocolate granola - great for snacking on with a cup of tea! The possibilities are endless!

And speaking of endless, this file comes with a variety of embellishments!  I have left mine plain, but it INCLUDES a heart, a snowflake, or a flower!  And if that wasn't generous enough, a large variety of sentiments are also part of the instant download!  Regina has also created an instruction video when you are ready to assemble!   You really need to check this out at The Cutting Cafe

WOW!  I'm so excited to be posting my first card for Christmas Crafts All Year 'Round Design Team!  Please join along on this challenge!  Anything Santa/Elf/Fairy.
I used a silhouette file, and embossed the background paper with snowflakes.  The stripes are from a Christmas collection of papers I have been hoarding - ahem - I mean am trying to use up!  (Anyone else have this problem!?)

Fall is for Pumpkins!


Today's square card is coloured in muted shades with copic markers for the challenge at 'Creative with Stamps'! I embellished with some felt leaves a few sequins along the sides.  Go have a look at these blogs - there are some really great ideas I know you'll love!

Fall hello

I love the way these leaves turned out.  It's an older stamp set that I coloured with watercolour and fussy cut.  There's an embossed layer in the background as well as a circle of twine.

White Pumpkin

I have been admiring all the white pumpkins that can be incorporated into the grey colour scheme in our house!  That inspired my card today!
I took a square card base and embossed it before adding a white doily.  Then a cut some wheat & a pumpkin on my Silhouette Cameo.  I love the look of the white on white for a change!

I will playing along at the Inkspirational challenge...and maybe...if I get selected could be their very newest Guest Designer!

Movers & Shakers


These cards are made with an elephant Silhouette file.  The first card is the 'negative' part of the file & filled with fine glitter and sequins to make it a shaker card.    The second card is using the actual file (it shows a little better what the shape is since my photography skills didn't do the shaker justice.)  I water-coloured the hearts on the envelop for this special couple too.


This shaker card was also made using a Silhouette file.  Cute for the little boy who it was delivered to.

The Perfect Blend CASe Sketch

I used one of my older stamp sets to make this fall coloured coffee themed card for the CAS(E) this Sketch #289. (unfortunately the sentiment didn't show as well on the photo as it does in real life.)

Fall Pinwheel


I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the pinwheel and the slider portion of this card, then just added some twine & a nice felt fall leaf!

Sew, I'm Die-ing!

I know, I know, it's a bad play on words, isn't it?!  Maybe if any of you have the same warped sense of humour I do, it at least made you smile...

I stamped the images in a light green on the card base, then used the main stamp, the sewing machine for a focal point.  It is water-coloured.  I used an OLD sewing pattern and ran it through my die cut machine. I also used my circle Happy Birthday die, and set it just off the card base for a little bit of interest. And then I popped a flower in the centre to finish it off.

The Bear & the Butterfly

What a sweet little bear!  I coloured her with Distress Inks in some 'end of summer' colours! :)  This kraft card came with the green stitching which happened to match the tiny bow, and YG003 Copic I used for the grass.
