DECEMBER 2016 BLOG HOP

Blog-hop-logo

Blog hop inspiration

Fun...BRIGHT...Cheerful!
That is what this image said to me!!!



I use Filigree Border to mimic the Rosette Border at the top.

Lots of star dies In Hawaiian Shores and Lovely Lady.

The new Wish Big die was the perfect sentiment for the color palette.


                                               

I used Lizzie's MIM technique to dry brush a soft background to avoid stark white.
I feel like I will be doing that, a lot!

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

How much fun was it to see our SWEET Dawn McVey back in action!!!
I missed her SO MUCH! We needed her color and spectacular florals back!

Mine is less of a literal interpretation than I usually do,
Much more impressionistic...


My Go-to when I want a spray is Garden Grace.
I LOVE that set. 
I needed to stamp the flowers separately because i used both Pure Poppy and Hawaiian Shores, so it is a bit harder to fill it in as evenly...for me anyway!



Dawns card is GORGEOUS!
Mine turned out pretty well!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #269: EMBOSSED + OUTLINED BACKGROUNDS

Sparkle-still

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and an embossed + outlined background.

I do not own Copics. I do not color! These challenges that require use of a marker like a Copic are hard for me.
Most of my markers are old. I have a few Zigs but like my markers they are bright colors and are too dark for outlining!!!

So...
I finally found a light green one that worked with Simply Chartreuse...



I used The outline image from Floral Sketches...because I LOVE itso much!

I did sponge the top of the panel like Betsy did. 
It really doesn't show up in real life...It looks so much darker in the picture..

It is time to get busy making cards for the Church conference in February, so I used a sentiment that works for that.

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #268: DOUBLE-LAYER TAGS

  DSC_7870.1\\

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and a double-layer tag.

How adorable are Dawn's tags?
First of all, how awesome is it to see her back in action?
We missed you sweet Dawn...

So I sound like a broken record...but I had another INSANE week!
I had my bible study small group at my house for lunch on Tuesday, and a card sale here on Friday.
I sold another $628!!!
I will donate $4000 for the year! That will dig 2 of the smaller wells!
Thank you Jesus for all of the VERY generous women who support my little mission!!!

Now, on to my last minute effort for a layered tag...

Lizzie's Basic and Window Cut tags seemed to be a no-brainier...


Could not have been quicker...I absolutely adore Dawn's Peaceful Pinecones...
It is a timeless image I never grow tired of!


Made a gorgeous tag!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

NOVEMBER 2016 BLOG HOP


Blog hop inspiration

Great picture...little time.

So not my best work...



I just ran out of time...

My sink clogged up after a lot of cooking yesterday and I can't get a hold of my plumber...
That's my excuse... Oh and we are dog sitting two rambunctious Labs...
Very cute...very busy!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

CREATE ALONG WITH US: NOVEMBER 2016

Birthday-Wrap

I cannot wait to get Wrap it up die set for this very reason. I LOVE Betsy's letterbox!!!
ABSOLUTELY adorable!!!

The woman's conference at my church is coming up in February and Betsy's box inspired me to make a Valentines one to sell at that conference.

I used Pure Poppy and Stampers Select card stock.


I have these heart rhinestone stickers and the felt heart sticker in my stash,


I LOVE Big Basics dies: Love You.
It was a PERFECT choice for Valentines!


After I photographed the box, it made me wonder if  people give gift cards for Valentines...
I suppose I could make a few with the slot and gift card envelope...or just a place to write a note...
anyway, I took my cue from Betsy and didn't add the envelope!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #267: ASSEMBLY LINE CARD-MAKING

IMG_3807

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and assembly line cards.

This was a timely challenge.
One of my dear friends ordered a dozen Thanksgiving cards.
I played catch-up all week after spending so much time getting ready for my sale.
So I finally made it to my craft room today...


I absolutely adore Autumn Adornments Stamp Set.
I use it any chance I get.


So it was a perfect choice.
The felt leaves and acorns were from my stash...
Made making 12 cards MUCH faster.


A dozen cards...all done while watching the Chiefs squeak out a win!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
