Thurs. 12-27-2018 WT720 Stitching, Faux Stitching

I made this card to enter into the Splitcoaststampers  WT720 challenge to show some sort of stitching in our creation.  I made a New Year Wish using an image from GKD that I heat embossed with silver EP along with the sentiment in Platinum Embossing powder.  I included a small touch of card stock in Christmas colors, to tie in the holiday colors.

Happy New Year Friends!

Tues. 12.11.2018 Cookie Monster Birthdays

Click on the link to take you to the SplitCoast page.
 Both my sister and my daughter have birthdays this month.  Always a little problem for them because Christmas was so close to their days.  Our family always tried our best to keep those days separate!  Birthday cards were always different than Christmas cards too.

Here is the second one I made -for F4A459. Go for the Gold.  I used gold glitter for the chips on this cookie!

12.7.2018 MOD Challenge

 I created this one for the MOD Challenge - build a wreath.  This one was made with a particular guy in mind.  He is a wonderful person that has built many things for us over many years, and kept the house running smoothly.. I tease him that he is my brother from another mother!   A 20 year friendship that continues still. He and his family have become the extended family we have looked for. 

Fri. 12 .7. 2018 Tis the Season

I had a great time whipping up this wintry card using the Delicate Snowflakes stamp set from Gina K. Designs with some white ink on navy card stock. The reindeer stamp was a freebie that I received and I wanted to add it to the Gina K. Snowflake background stamp.
Thank you for stopping by to look at my card, today!

Fri. 11.16. 2018 'Tis the Season

 I came up with a Christmas card today, since 1" of snow put southern Wisconsin in the spirit of the season this morning. It sure didn't last long though as almost everything has melted already.  I heard that a little more snow is expected tonight!
 The circle and the background design are from Melanie's Holiday Frame stamp set from 2016.  The reindeer stamp is a freebie I received as a win from Pink and Main, which I colored with Copic markers. I added a touch of DP and a gem above the sentiment.

Are you in the planning stages for Thanksgiving 2018 already?

Wed. 11.14.2018 A Good Luck B-Day Card


 A good luck shamrock birthday card to share with you today.  I had a good time making this one, as these were my high school colors at St. Patrick Academy. Since I was a member of the last class to graduate before the school closed and was torn down- this is very special to me.

I hope you click on the link above to read a little about the school  see a sketch of the building itself.

Sat.. 11.10.2018 Dream Big Tag


I was playing in my Craft Room today, doing some fussy cutting and using some very old dp, from years ago. Tags that motivated the start of this promise to myself.  It was a lot of fun just playing without having any restrictions! I am going to try and use some of the dp that has been stored for a very long time. Let's see how long I can keep doing this. This is Bella Elephant by Beth Silaika for Gina k. Designs.  I have been creating cards for a super long time now and am still enjoying the creativity!

Wed. 11.7. 2018 SC 722 and Double D Wishes

This is the second card made this morning.  I will take a photo of the 1st one and add it to my blog tomorrow, since it is not for any particular challenge.

I decided to work with the Split Coast SC722 to create this Christmas card today.  I added patterned paper and twine to give a festive look, to the Holiday card. I heat embossed the sentiment from GKD (Claire Brennan)'s Noel Stamp set, along with some topaz colored gems to the bottom. This also works for the Double D Wishes challenge.

Here is the sketch.
