Concord and 9th Trim the Tree for The Paper Players

Hi everyone!

The challenge from Claire at The Paper Players is:

 Hmmm...the lemon lime really through me, and actually I don't have any any. Then I saw my plaid stamp from Concord and 9th sitting on my desk, and thought it would be a perfect way to use the colors! 

 I did have garden green and melon mambo ink. I substituted the lime for certainly celery though, as it was the closest I had. Then I stamped my plaid background. You can see the lines of  the 3 colors below:

I used the positive and negative to make 2 cards, which I saw on a Jennifer McGuire video here.

Then I white embossed the sentiments and did some splatters with white acrylic paint mixed with water, and a toothbrush. After it dried, I adhered the powder pink and melon layered letters and bows, and tied on some string.

These were fun to make!

I hope you will join us this week!

Reminder: The Paper Players will be taking a break for the holidays after this challenge and will be back Sunday, Jan. 7th.

Merry Christmas!!

Today I'm showcasing a sentiment from Happy Little Stampers Christmas Joy set, one of my favorites! I use it ALL the time because the fonts are so fun, and it stamps so well.

Cheery Lynn Blog Hop!

Welcome to Cheery Lynn's Blog Hop!

If you arrived from Cheryl's Blog  you are on the right track.  If not, head on back to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog  and start from the beginning so you don't miss any of the terrific projects. 

Image may contain: text

The theme is Flower Power, and I decided to make a clean and simple card using two of my favorite Cheery Lynn Christmas dies. For my flower, I chose the Poinsettia Strip. It makes such lovely blooms! The  Christmas Wreath was cut out in red and green.  I cut off all the red berries and adhered them onto the green wreath, and added my poinsettia. Then I stamped a sentiment in black, and added a couple of sparkly enamel dots.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

The Paper Players Christmas Baking Challenge

Hi everyone!

This week I am the hostess at The Paper Players and I chose:

I really love to bake! 

Especially at Christmas. I fact, I share my recipes at my other blog, Cookin' Up North. Here are a few of my holiday faves:


I could go on and on, as those are just a few. I love to try new recipes too, so it seems I am always cooking or baking!

For my card I used the cupcake from Cheery Lynn, in reds and greens. My theme was the holly as you can see, with a tiny bit of holly on the cupcake itself, and some tucked under the stitched rectangle panels. You can also find it on the cupcake liner. The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.

I'm really looking forward to your cards in the gallery, and the baking card ideas you come up with. I'm hoping some of you even share a favorite Christmas recipe along the way!

Christmas Carols for Dies R Us

The theme at Dies R Us is "Christmas Carol." I went with Joy to the of my favorites.

The card set I made is VERY simple! I used just 2 dies and a sentiment. The main die is from Sue Wilson called, "Wise Men mini striplet." I think it's just gorgeous and so elegant!

                                          I've cut it out in SO many colors, but for this set
 I used purple and blue shimmer paper.

I added some white holly with silver berries from Cheery Lynn to complete the card. The sentiment is from CAS-Friday's Snowy Sayings. 

I made a ton of these! I also made them for a couple card groups too.

Here's a list of the dies I used:
