12 Kits of Occasions, Sept. 2014Use your leftovers


Posting a couple of cards for 12 kits of  Occasions,
using our leftovers.
As a guest back in April, Jeanne Jackna sent out a treasure trove
of goodies, most of which I've used over the months.
Did have this beautiful script, floral paper, and frame, 
made it into a shaker.


The paper and ribbon was also leftovers from her box.


This was a die cut, sent in the card stock.


What to do with the actual die cut?


Simply showcased fern.


I loved being invited by this group of uber talented designers,
and enjoyed playing with all the fun fancies Jeanne included!
To see all the goodies over the months,
make a visit to Kara's blog,


She takes you through the year with pictures! 

The Card Concept 19 & Simon Says Anything Goes

MIM #181: Paper Casting and Merry Monday Christmas Bingo


Had so much fun doing the Paper Casting with Danielle
over at PapertreyInk,
this time doing double duty for 
MIM and Merry Monday's challenges.


Kathy's playing Christmas Bingo with us. 
My choices are right hand, straight down,
Emboss, Kraft, and Buttons.

Center created with Tremendous Treats: Christmas (little birdie).
This is done with paper casting and sheets of toilet tissue.
I tinted the water with re-inker Blueberry Sky, then glimmer misted it after drying.
Colored a bit with sharpies and went over a few places with stickles.
Wreath created with Winterberry die in Kraft felt
Sentiment: Wet Paint Christmas

PTI September Blog Hop


It's Blog Hop time at PTI!
And our challenge is this beautiful fall photo:


A long post, so grab your cup of choice and settle in
for a bit, all supplies at the end so you can
hop along.


Trying not to overuse this stamp, but it's so darn cute,
and it seemed a perfect fit for the challenge colors.


That 'happy' just makes me happy!


Sweet Blush a fall color? But it works with Autumn Rose and Smokey Shadow!


Did this tag, then did a few more getting simpler each time.


Recognize the pumpkin from Scentamentals?


OK, that bucket of rosy berries? Had to do one with 
the Botanical stamp!



Just one more,


Hard to see, but Winterberry has glossy accents, then glitter,
which tweaked the blush, but I rather liked the contrast.


Too busy? Almost didn't add it, but it's fun to see 'over-the-tops' too!

Listing supplies if you'd like them.
Can't wait to see all the creativity on Nichole's blog!

Enjoy the hop!

MIM #181: Paper Casting


Paper Casting with, of all things, toilet paper, is what we're asked
to use to create wondrous ornaments and tags.
Like I always do for PTI challenges, I grabbed a handful of
stamp sets I thought would work, and began,
according to directions on this video,


by Danielle.

I really didn't think I'd like love it as much as I did!
Just couldn't stop!


Image from Basket of Blessings & 8 sheets of TT.
That's it!
I did fussy cut a bit and add a tag, ribbon and a die cut from Embellished Elegance.
Can't wait to set my Thanksgiving Table with 20+ of these, and
have the fam ask how I made them!
(and with what!!!)
Danielle, you're a genius!

Festive Friday #40


With this pastel and silvery confection as our inspiration,
I created 3 cards for Festive Friday this week.


Don't know about you, but getting new dies (and stamps!) have to
be played with.
Couldn't stop cutting Hanging Ornaments from Memory Box.

First did this card


Impossible to show the shimmer, just like frosting on a cake!


Then did a 2nd card,


Kept the bg simple and changed the sentiment.
Shimmer and glitter paper everywhere.

3rd card


3rd card made with the leftover dies from the previous 2.
Honestly, just couldn't let those pieces go to waste!


Can't decide my favorite. 
May have to play some more...

Waltzingmouse PJ Party: Old Pajamas


Welcome to Challenge 3 of Waltzingmouse's PJ Party night!


This challenge? Old Pajamas!


Santa Clause is Coming to Town is not old to me, but I believe it's an older release.
It was on my wish list, and when Claire had a'Christmas Sale', 
put it right in my cart!
That, and the Vintage Christmas Background behind it!
I carefully cut out a window, and created a shaker.


Waltzingmouse PJ Party: Too Cute to Spook


Too Cute to Spook!
Treats for the little ones!




Around a box of ghost peeps is a strip of vellum.
The edge of the Picot Panel frames and fit perfectly.
Must say, I loved how Claire topped her tags,
so I, too, fancied my Stitched Tags up a bit with the Picot Panel Die.
Stamped sentiment and candy from Candy Wagon.


Finished pops off with glossy accents.
