    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…

    11/23 Coffee and Cards

    Had so much fun with Coffee and Cards today. We worked on 6×6 paper and what could we get out of it. Using some bigger pieces this time, still being about to get 2 cards and 4 tags. Yes, I am getting ready for Christmas, but.. please be sure to enter the Challenge on Facebook. I bet you are asking where this snowflake paper came from?!? The Feels like Frost as two sides and this foil side is the reverse of the “frost” photos. The other side is pretty don’t get me wrong, but its almost a one and done side. And are you loving the alternative colors?? I sure…

    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…

    Birch for winter?

    How about some Christmas inspiration… because the catalog goes live in EIGHT days. This one was from the Stamp-a-Stack a week ago. The Birch (w-149259 c-149256) background was so easy using the Stampuratus (146276). No worries and easy to stamp more then one at a time. The sentiment was from another stamp set. An unlikely choice if I say so myself. Making Christmas Bright (148046), it had the PERFECT font! Add a little glimmer and done! However, what about white shiny ribbon and Real Red glimmer paper?? I wonder?? Do you need a catalog still?? Contact me direct… I will get you one. Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
