Celebrate Amazing You

Hello there!  Are you looking for a sketch for those last minute cards?  The Pals Paper Arts have a great sketch this week that is just perfect for any occasion.  Head on over to the PALS to link up your creation for a chance to be a PALS pick!

Are you knee deep in Holiday preparations?  I know we are, but I needed to take a moment to celebrate my cousin Catherine's Birthday, or Birthmas as we call it.  I love this pattern paper from the Pretty Petals dsp stack, it's so pretty and feminine!  Gold foil paper and venetian crochet trim really compliment the paper so well.

Gold heat embossing?  Yes please!  I used the oval framelits to make a raised layer, then stamped and heat embossed on the very vanilla card base.  Simply elegant!

The pops of color on the black are fun, and the shiny gold is just lovely!  This is somewhat of an CAS card, but if you pick the right elements, they are stunningly beautiful!

So if you know someone that has a December birthday, and you can take it from me, since I do, It is nice to be remembered during the hectic holiday season.  Take a moment to send a card or a phone call, it will be appreciated!  Happy Birthmas Catherine!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Making Spirits Bright


Hello there!  Are you in full Holiday mode? We are definitely!  So how about some inspiration to get you going?  The Pals Paper Arts have a festive color challenge for you this week.  Take a look at the colors, create something festive, and link it up for your chance to be a PALS pick!

So, apparently last challenge I didn't know that I used two of the three challenge colors for this week, however the addition of crumb cake lightens everything up.

The Home for Christmas DSP has a ton of Christmas colors, I picked out the real red pattern and went with it!  I wanted a border so I used the star thinlet from the mini treat bag thinlets.  I just cut once, moved the die to the last star and cut one more time for a longer piece.  Texture is always key, and the decorative dots TIEF is very festive.

I made my own ornament with the metallic foil doilies, gold buttons, and some bakers twine.  

The gold button could be substituted with a gold foil punched circle for easy mailing.  This is a good card for mailing and making a bunch of .  The colors are so crisp and clean!  I do hope you try your hand at creating with these colors this week, we would love to see what you come up with.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
