CAS(E) this Sketch!


Hi everyone!  I'm back today sharing a card that was inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch!  I just ordered the Beautiful Berries: Winter by Papertrey Ink and it arrived the other day.  I couldn't wait to use it for this sketch!

I love this big sentiment with the twigs and berries in the two corners.  I had to use gray twigs with red berries for my first card.  I made a bunch of these to tuck away for next years Christmas cards using all different colors for the twigs and berries.  The gray and red was my favorite.

Here's one of the other ones I created using somewhat traditional colors.


Here is the sketch!


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Good Stuff Inside


Hi everyone!  We are enjoying the Holiday Housewarming party over on StampNation.  The first video tutorial went up yesterday and I just knew I had to create some of these FUN Fancy Top Hexagon boxes that Iliana shared with us.  They are perfect for a cute little candle, a pair of fuzzy socks or even some handmade Oreo Truffles.  

Here is a picture of the top of the box.


There are so many ways to decorate these boxes or you could even use Designer Series Paper.  I chose to add some snowflakes to the top and bottom and then add the sentiment.  To kick it up a bit, I did add silver stickles to the center of some of the snowflakes around the box.  I cannot wait to hand these out to my friends this Christmas!


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!!!

Color Challenge


Hi everyone!  It is a snowy day here in CT, the perfect day to stay inside and make some cards.  I was totally inspired by the most recent challenge over at StampNation.  It is an amazing color challenge.  The graphic is so pretty!  The colors are mainly red and light blue in the photo, but there are little bits of gray and green in the photo.  I was definitely drawn to add gray on my cards.  There is just something I love about gray leaves and now gray pine branches!!!  :)

While I had all my supplies out I stamped a bunch of these ornaments using red and blue.  After stamping them all I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.


The front panel of my card was die cut using the Good Stuff tag dies from the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval Collection.  This die will be in Catherine's store later in 2018.  Love the aperture this die makes.

Here are a couple more using the circle shaped ornament and the piece that was left over after using the Good Stuff tag dies.


To add a little interest to these cards I die cut the tag die from red cardstock and attached it to the back of the stamped piece using dimensional adhesive, so when you look at it from an angle you can see a bit of red peeking out.

On this card I used a light blue cardstock.


Here is a peek at my card for this week's Christmas card challenge on StampNation.


We are totally enjoying being on the new platform over on StampNation.  I have been spending time over there just getting used to where everything is and how to navigate.  It's pretty easy and looks amazing!

Before you go, I wanted to let you know the Plaid background stamp is back in stock!

For Unto You.....


Happy Sunday everyone!  I have a quick card to share with you today for the Less is More: Colour Challenge.  Red & Green!


I stamped the sentiment onto my card stock and stamped the greenery at the top of bottom to frame the sentiment.  This would be a great card to mass produce if you are running out of ideas.  Switch out the sentiment for more options.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
