Hello there!  So glad you could join me today.  We have a fun and fresh sketch challenge for you this week at the Pals Paper Arts challenge blog.  Create something fun, and you could be our next pick!


I knew from the Catalog kick off that I would heat emboss the Big on You stamp set in gold and on vellum, and lo and behold when I actually looked at the new catalog, the Stampin' Up artists beat me to it.  It's ok, we are good like that!  I still was able to put my own twist on it,

Blushing bride, crumb cake, vellum, and gold is a very beautiful combo, it's just hard to photograph well!

I wanted to add on to the main sentiment, and the Darling stamp from the Hello Darling stamp set seemed to be a perfect fit.  My stampin write markers add a soft look to the sentiment.

I thought some homemade arrows would work great for the flags on the sketch.  I used the petite pennants builder punch to make both parts of the arrows, and glued them to some tiny strips of crumb cake.  I couldn't pass up adding more gold, y'all know me!

Let's not overlook the sweet venetian crochet trim, I just love that ribbon.

I am pretty sure this card is going to my husband, which is nice having his card already made, and a month early, you can't beat that.

Sending Good Thoughts


Hello there!  Happy New Year to y'all!  I am sending good thoughts your way today to all of my loyal blog readers.  I am hoping that 2015 will be a great year for everyone.  To start this year off on a creative step we have a fun color challenge at the Pals Paper Arts challenge blog.  Check out the colors, create something fun and link it up for your change to be a PALS pick.

When I usually get the color challenges, I always head to my DSP to see what can be used.  I love the Maritime DSP and found a piece that had just night of navy.  The lady popped right out at me so I made sure to trim my background so she would be placed just right.

I love the impact that heat embossing provides, and embossed in silver embossing powder, it is crisp and clean, and oh so pretty. Do you spy the embossing on the wisteria wonder flag?  Yes, silver again.

The silver and gold foil paper that we have embosses wonderfully with the embossing folders, I am always so pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful it transforms.

I grabbed a piece of the white and silver bakers twine from the November MPP kit, I love it and found that I just want to hoard it.

I found that this color combo could really be used for anyone, the wisteria wonder is a grayish color, not to girly, and the silver is just fabulous.

We had a great Christmas, I was finally on the mend after being sick for almost THREE weeks.  It surely was hard being sick during the holidays, but Chris and Mackie really helped out.  I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas filled with love and family.

Don't forget that Stampin' Up! bonus time is just right around the corner.  Sale-A-Bration starts January 6th.  What is bonus time you ask?  When you order $50 in fun stamping supplies, you can choose a fabulous item out of the SAB catalog FREE!  How fun is that?!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Hello Christmas

Hello there!  I am very excited to share my latest Christmas card with you, it was fun making this card since I had a great color scheme to start with.  Pals Paper Arts has a festive color challenge this week, so create something fun, and link it up to have a chance to be a PALS pick!


I am going to start with the background of my card.  I have wanted to make this for a while, and with these colors this week, I knew I had to do it.  First I embossed my cherry cobbler card stock with the large polka dot embossing folder, then I punched a bunch of very vanilla circles with my 3/4 inch circle punch, making sure to cover all circles.  I made it a little larger than I needed so I could trim the extra off the side with my paper trimmer for perfect edges.

I love, love how all of our papers, ribbons, and embellishments all match up.  It's so easy to get a coordinated look.

Hello... I love this Hi There stamp set, the images stamp PERFECTLY, and are just beautiful.  I was going to do "Christmas Hello", but ended up on "Hello Christmas" since the placement lined up better, either way, you can always make your own sentiment by meshing two different stamp sets. The Christmas stamp was from the November MPP.

I could not pass up the champagne glimmer paper that was still out on my table, I added it because all Christmas cards need some glitter, right?

Gold buttons, woodgrain embossing folder, deco label framelits, cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon, gold bakers twine anyone?  They are all dressing on this pretty card.

This is another of my favorite cards for the Holiday season, it should mail ok as well, which is a plus. I do hope you will join us Pals this week, there will be some fabulous cards, I am sure!

All of these supplies can be found at my ONLINE STORE  but hurry, time is running out to get your Christmas projects completed and sent out.  Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
