Beautiful Promenade In Purple


Sending this card out to a friend in need today. 
Love the flowers in the Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather
especially with the embossed background!
I stamped the three flowers in two steps-
one for the outside in Grape
 and one for the middle lined image in Heather.
I cut them along with the leaves with the matching dies from 
Beautiful Layers thinlits dies. The leaves are in Granny Apple Green.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set called
Beautiful Promenade on a white strip in Grape.
I added all this to my background ran through the Big Shot
with the Tufted embossing folder. 
I layered all on a Grape base and finished it off with two 
enamel dots in Grape.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful day!

FabFri149 Hello Country Home

FabFri149


When I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to use some 
designer paper...."need to use paper" keeps ringing in my head!
I tend to hoard paper and then have much left when it retires. 
I grabbed my Country Lane DSP and decided to stress the paper 
with my fingernail. I layered it on a Blackberry Bliss card base.
I stamped the florals on a piece of thick white card stock 
in Memento Tuxedo Black and started coloring with my 
Stampin Blends markers.  I added the sentiment from the same set
Country Home. I cut it out with the stitched square and added
some chicken wire foil behind with a little Blackberry twine
to finish it off. Will be sending this off to my mom this week.

Season Of Joy


Here is the other card I made with the clear E block inked in Gray Granite.
I had pictured the deer and the tree but too much on one card so 
made two separate cards. The inked block went straight to paper.
I cut the all the trees and the snow hill from the Into the Woods dies.
There are two trees layered together. The solid tree and the detailed tree.
I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Pines in Early Espresso ink.
If you did not see yesterday's card,
 please look back to Sunday Oct. 28th for Holy Night Deer.

Hope you enjoy your Monday and thanks for stopping by!

Holy Night Deer


I wanted to play around with making a background with 
my clear block and possibly make a winter scene. 
I had no idea it would turn out so amazing!
I inked up my large E clear block with Gray Granite ink
and "stamped" it right down on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.
I then cut trees and a snow hill in vanilla from the 
Into The woods dies. I inked my deer from the Dashing Deer set
in Soft Suede for the body and Early Espresso for the antlers.
I cut him with the Detailed Deer dies. 
I stamped the sentiment from Illuminated Christmas in Espresso. 
I layered it on a Very Vanilla base. 
Check back tomorrow for a scene like this but with a snowy tree!

I used Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce markers.
I cut the Poinsettia with the matching die from
 Detailed Poinsettia thinlits dies.

I grabbed the beautiful Frosted Floral DSP and layered it on the 
Tranquil Tide base. I added the Tide trim across

FF0019 Joy To The World

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0019, Stampin Up, Halloween, Black


I decided when I saw this challenge, I wanted to make a card 
with black and gold. I cut a large black circle and stamped the stars
from Night In Bethlehem in white craft ink.
I layered it on piece of white I ran through with the Softly Falling
embossing folder but only part of the way leaving room 
for my sentiment from the Hearts Come Home set
 to be stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I placed it all on a white base and added my deer
 from Detailed Deer dies in gold foil  to look like 
he is leaping though the night.

CTS112 The Stockings Were Hung!



Love the host set called Hung With Care!
Mostly love the dutch shoes with the bow!
I thought of this set as soon as I saw this sketch.
I used a piece of white card stock to stamp the 
sentiment across in Real Red ink.
I then stamped the stockings/shoes by coloring the 
stamps with different color markers.
I layered some Under The Mistletoe DSP in a plaid print
with Old Olive card stock and ran the 3/8" Real Red cotton ribbon
around with a bow. The top almost looks like a present!

FMS359 Season's Greetings




Love how this card turned out. 
I saw the sketch and thought of the trees
 and then that made me think of the deer plus snowy hills.
I stamped the two trees in Mossy Meadow and cut them with 
the matching dies.
 I cut two snow hills from white and sparkle glimmer
 paper from Into The Woods dies.
I added all these to a snowy back background where I ran a piece 
of white card stock through the Big Shot
 with the Softly Falling embossing folder.
I then stamped the two deer from Dashing Deer in 
Soft Suede ink and cut them with the matching dies
from Detailed Deer thinlits dies.
I then finished it up with adding a sentiment stamped in Merry Merlot
on a white strip from beautiful Blizzard stamp set
and placing all on a white base.

GDP160 You Are A Wonderful Sketch




I love Krista's work/designs!  I love the sketch
so why change it!
I decided to keep her design and layout but change up the colors
to look more fall or winter like.
I stamped the trees from Rooted In Nature in Tranquil Tide
twice on the background- both times stamping off to make them lighter.
  I also stamped once on a piece of white paper and
used the matching die to cut it out. I added a little texture above the trees with 
the same color from the Timeless texture set. 
I cut a strip of white and stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot.
I added some Joyous Noel DSP with the stripe print beneath.
I framed the background with Tide card stock and then some 
Merlot before adding to a white base.
I finished it off with some gold pearls and a linen thread bow.

PP414 Enjoy The Season




I know this card is flat but I really like the fall colors and 
thought trees from Winter Woods set would give it depth and texture, too.
I was inspired by a photo from a friend snapping some fall foliage up
north (I am hanging in 90 degrees Florida with no sign of fall).
Each row of trees were a different fall color.
I stamped the Cajun Craze set first and the n the Mossy Meadow.
I stamped the harvest moon in Crushed Curry from the Wood Woods set.
I added the sentiment from Eastern Beauty in Mossy.
  I also stamped some ground in Sahara Sand beneath the trees. 
I layered the Very Vanilla background on a piece of Cajun and then a Mossy
base. Simple but sweet.  It is headed out to my mom today!
She is in Atlanta so maybe a little more cooler than me!

FabFri148 Barn Door Blessings




I looked long and hard at each of my sets.  
When I saw my Barn Door set, I thought an orange barn door...yes!
I stamped the door on Pumpkin Pie card stock in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I cut it out with the matching die. I stamped the wreath twice- once in Pie and 
then in Gorgeous Grape.  I cut the Grape out with the matching die 
and then cut the bow out with the die for it.
I layered the Pie bow on the wreath over the Grape one.
I cut the little handle in black card stock with die also.
I stamped the sentiment from the set in Grape

I cut a Stitched Seasons label in white and stamped a sentiment 
from Hearts Come Home set in Garden Green ink.
I cut the deer from the champagne foil with matching die and added a 
Cherry Cobbler bow from the Alpine Sports dies to him.

CTS293 Hug A Snowflake




I love the background you can make with this Beautiful Blizzard set.
So when I saw this sketch, I knew what to do.
I stamped the background on white card stock in Bermuda Bay a few times
after stamping off to make it lighter.
I then stamped Bay snoflakes over it. I cut a 1 " by 4" strip
in Bermuda Bay card stock and heat embossed the sentiment 
in white emboss powder.  I cut the snowflake die 
from the Blizzard thinlits dies and colored the rhinestone 
with the Bermuda Bay dark Stampin Blends marker.
Adding it to the Bermuda bay base was the finishing touch.

GDP159 Leaves Make Me Smile




I love the fall colors though not much of them are gonna be near 
me this fall in Florida!
But I can make them happen with the awesome leaves in stamp sets.
I used the baby wipe technique to create these falling leaves today.
I laid down a few baby wipes to make my "pad."
I dropped a about 5 drops of each color- Blackberry Bliss,
Old Olive, and Crushed Curry. 
I then used it lie an ink pad to stamp my big and small leaves.
I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry and then cut out a few
die cut leaves in same color.
I finished up the background with three Blackberry dots. 
I layered the white piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock
and then a Crushed Curry base.

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0018, Stampin Up, Sweetest Day, Stripes



I wanted to use the new Corrugated embossing folder
for the stripes so I ran it through with a piece of Soft Suede
card that I had corner rounder the corners first.
I sponged some white craft ink over it to give it some age.
I layered it on a Merry Merlot base.
Love the Joyous Noel DSP and here I cut it
in a banner to layer on.
I ran some Tranquil Tide trim around and tied a knot.
I stamped the sentiment from Flourish Filigree set in White craft
ink on Merry Merlot card stock and
punched it out with the Pretty Label punch.
I popped it up on the Soft Suede stitched oval.

CTS292 Beautiful Winter Woods



This is my take on the sketch which might be upside down!
I decided a tree was worthy here and it was a chance to use Winter Woods.
I started with the piece of Night of Navy and stamped the background trees
in Whisper White craft ink.  I added the stars from the Hearts Come Home set.
I then cut the snow and the tree from the Into The Woods dies
in Whisper White card stock.
I added the sentiment from Beautiful Blizzard in Navy to the bottom snow.
I started to add some bling but then I thought how
it looks to clean and crisp like this.
I finished it with the white base.

You Are Extraordinary


I hope you can see all the shimmer on this card!
I took a piece of Blueberry Bushel card stock
and ran it through The Big Shot with my 
Blizzard thinlits die and embossing mats to 
emboss the card stock with the snowflakes.
I then added some Frost White shimmer paint to 
a spritzer with water and sprayed heavily over the 
card stock for a great white shimmer. 
I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Blizzard 
set in Merry Merlot and cut it with the label die 
from the Petals & More dies. 
I added a few rhinestones and layered it on 
a Whisper White base. 
(For the label die, I ran it through twice
to crop it to the size I wanted so it is not as
 long as the die actually is)

GDP158 A Joyous Snowflake Christmas




When I saw the sketch, I thought about snowflakes!
Not necessarily cooper ones!
But this Joyous Noel DSP has beautiful copper snowflakes
so I pick out one from the Blizzard thinlit die and ran it 
three times with the copper foil.
I layered them on white and stamped the sentiment from
a new host set called Hung With Care in Merry Merlot ink.
I added more copper foil behind and then placed 
it on the beautiful Joyous Noel print layered with white and 
on a Merry Merlot base.
So easy and simple...great layout, too!

PP412 Welcome Fall




I like a tic-tac-toe and this one was a good one.
I went diagonal with die cut, pumpkin, and green.
I decided to look through my sets for some pumpkins and 
there is a sheer lack of them this year.
I grabbed the At Home With You bundle
 and went to coloring with my Stampin Blends. 
I stamped all the images in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I colored the frame of the door with Call Me Clover as well as the leaves
on the sunflowers for the green.
 I colored the door in Soft Suede and the mat in Crumb Cake.  
For the flowers, I used Mango Melody plus Soft Suede then 
Smoky Slate for the canister and Pumpkin Pie on the pumpkins.
I added the Pumpkin Pie for inside the window so it had a fall glow.
I used the bronze along with Pumpkin and Ivory for the lantern/candle.
All were cut with the matching die cuts 
and place a piece of Wood Textures DSP then a white base.
I like the make a scene and this one has a nice warmth to it.

Thinking Of You With Fall Trees


I wanted to make some fall trees with the Winter Woods set.
I stamped them in Soft Suede on Whisper White card stock.
Then I went to town with my sponge dauber in Cajun Craze,
Call Me Cover, and Crushed Curry inks.
I stamped the sentiment from Sheltering Trees.
I also stamped the Buffalo Check stamp on Cajun Craze card stock
for the background and layered it on a Soft Suede base.
To finish it off, I used some linen thread from a kit to tie around.
I love how it turned out.
