Oxide Ink backgrounds


Hi everyone!

I've been playing with my oxide inks and decided to frame one up to share today!
I've seen several cards on Pinterest using this type of idea, so I gave it a try.

My focal point is the flower from Poppystamps called," Petal Ribbon." I added a few pearls to the centers.


The frame is made with MFT's In and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles and the Memory Box Pinpoint Single Frame. I adhered it all on a piece of foam cut the same size to give it some dimension.




Thanks for stopping by!

The Paper Players sketch challenge


Hi everyone!

Here's the sketch from Claire at The Paper Players:


I know, I know...you made another penguin card?

I can't help myself! 
I must confess I made TONS of cards with penguins, each one different. But I found this cute stamp set from Lawn Fawn called,"Here We Go A-waddling" and one thing led to another and now I have a quite a stack. LOL!

For this penguin card, I used two Cheery Lynn snowflakes for my banner,and a stitched oval rectangle from Lil Inker for my sentiment. I LOVE the fun sentiment, and added a few tiny stamped music notes too.

Cheery Lynn's Blog Hop...Baby It's Cold Outside!


Hi everyone!

It's time for Cheery Lynn's "Baby It's Cold Outside" Blog Hop!

Image may contain: one or more people and text

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 awesome projects. 

Reminder...
There will be a  prize giveaway for one random person who comments and answers the questions on the Cheery Lynn blog!

I did some layering on my card with Cheery Lynn's scalloped rectangles ...3 layers actually, each popped up with some dimensionals. On top of that I added a piece of the Mandy Doily...so soft and delicate!




Then I cut out a couple of coffee cups with the Brew Can Do It set and decorated the top with some tiny holly from the Christmas Wreath dies. The snowflakes are SO pretty...they are from the Happy Christmas/tree sentiment set. I've been using them on so many of my Christmas and winter cards...just the right size for so many projects.

The sentiment," Ho Ho Ho" is from Fun with Sweater kit. I also added some holly and a pretty white poinsettia.



Here's a list of the dies I used:



Thanks so much for stopping by today! 

Your next stop on the blog hop is back to Cheery Lynn's Blog.

 Have fun!

Dies R Us Challenge....use leaves


The challenge at Dies R Us is to use leaves in your creation.


Our Challenge Blog


I made a fall card using some fun plaid paper and Cheery Lynn dies. I did some inlaying with the Cinderella Pumpkin die, and added a sunflower and branch behind them. I backed it all on a stitched rectangle, and stamped my sentiment in black.



Here's a list of the dies I used:





The Paper Players Spooky Halloween!


Hi everyone!

It's my turn to host at The Paper Players and I chose a Clean and Simple Spooky Halloween theme:




I started out by making some spooky Jack O Lanterns from Cheery Lynn, and piled them in a bunch on some CL pierced circles. The sentiment is also Cheery Lynn from the Happy Halloween Twig Wreath set.

Since this is a CAS challenge, I kept lots of white space, but I just HAD to add a couple of enamel dots...LOL!

Cheery Lynn Happy Halloween



Hi everyone!

I have a quick Halloween card to share today using some fun Cherry Lynn dies. I cut them out in the usual Halloween colors and backed my scene on some grey card stock. The circle is actually cut with some glitter paper I had in my stash. I added a few enamel dots,too.

I'm headed to a craft fair today, and then on to our local craft store which has so many amazing dies and stamps...I wonder what I'll end up dragging home! LOL I won't be dragging...prolly skipping with a big smile on my face!

Impression Obsession's Happy Fall


Hi everyone!

The color challenge from Joanne at The Paper Players is:



I used this fall plate from Impression Obsession to make a ton of fall cards this year. I also used it for my card group at Good Samaritan. They loved it! I kept it kind of simple...no inlaying like I did on my card for The Paper Players. 

I've been into a shimmer paper kick lately and used it here...added a few tiny pearls too!
