    Pumpkin Patch with Plaid Tidings DSP.

    Pumpkin Patch with Plaid. A dollar store find to create a Pumpkin Patch with Plaid Tidings. This is one of the 3 Holiday Stamp Camp projects. There are times that you just NEED to do something different, right?? I let the Plaid Tidings pick the colors. Even the “PATCH” is from the DSP pack. I would like to take a minute and talk about the fun frame. I will be honest what is the behind our cute pumpkins was kinda scary. REALLY!! It was the size that sold me on this frame. It measured about less than 8 x 8 inches. So yes, one piece of cardstock would fit!! YEAH!!…

    Small Bloom Punch for a Challenge

    How about a Global Design Project Challenge? The challenge this week … C.A.S.E. the designer! And I love Charlet Mallett’s cards! Always a little extra pretties! Here is her cards. Beautiful, right? What spoke to me is that Small Bloom punch. And the flowers going up the tower! I have been been wanting to try my hand at water colors again, but…. YIKES, the first one sure did NOT turn out! Just tooooooo much water. I share this because there is a learning or relearning curve. Just because you did not get what you wanted on your first or even second try. It does not mean you should not try…

    Apple Smiles with Harvest Hellos

    I was using up the last of the apples from my tree this afternoon and remembered that I forgot to share this SUPER simple but SUPER cute card. “You make me Smile!” sentiment is included in the Harvest Hellos Bundle (153037). Along with “Hey there, Pumpkin”, which would obviously need a Pumpkin instead, haha The Call Me Clover looks great with the Cherry Cobbler apple. No sponging or magic tricks with this one.. Right outta the punch. However, I cut the sentiment apart. Put I bet you figured that already. Can you picture the picnic?? The table cloth and all?? Right?!? Hugs, Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!

    Wicked Treats and Harvest Hellos

    This Happy Pumpkin has treats to deliver! A cookie, special candy, even maybe a TRICK?? The Harvest Hellos Bundle (153037) is perfect to add to this Mini Pizza Box (144645) top. It really needed some friends, welcome the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle (153041). However, I am not sure our cute pumpkin is super happy about having 2 spiders for friends, but… they are friendly spiders!?! The Silver Metallic Thread (138402) is PERFECT for spider webs, along with Crafty Whisper White Ink (147277). Finally our Black Kitty, just for you Paula, she is full of Wink of Stella (141897). She is all shiny in the moon light. I sure have had fun…

    9/21 Coffee and Cards

    Today the thing that we focused on for Coffee and Cards was… Sponging. We also like to call it, dirtying it up. The Harvest Hellos (b-153037) is perfect to try this technique out. The punch also makes quick work of images. Several Colors were used on each apple/pumpkin. No, I do not have a sponge for every color, buttt! How much are you liking the “burlap” background?? That comes from the Pressed Petal DSP (149500). Adding the sentiments from Itty Bitty Greeting (151331) and Country Home (147678). I know I have been talking about it, but ALL the new, Coffee and Cards videos are on my YouTube channel. Here is…
