Glad Tidings in Plaid

Hello Again, Stampers!

Today's card is a mash-up of two blog challenges that I thought would work very well together.  

The first is from Paper Pal Arts.  I really liked this simple sketch, but even in it's simple style, the possibilities are endless.  
Imagine all of the paper scraps you could use up that have just been lying around, or all of those rolls of washi tape!  

Enjoy this fun Christmas card today!

Here is the sketch:

My card:

The second was a theme challenge from Merry Monday, to use "plaid."  The Warmth and Cheer dsp paper stack and the coordinating washi tape.  

Plaid is trending!

The details on my card are created by using the Merry Tags Framelits Dies.  Oh goodness are they cool!  I love the detail in each one.

Triple Challenge Card: Clean and Simple Leaves

Hello Stampers!

I'm back today with a new fall-ish card based on three, yes, THREE challenges!  
I can't believe it worked out, but I had a vision for how all three could come together in one card, and I'm here today to show it to you.  ;-)

I hope you enjoy it.

First, the sketch is from CAS(E) This Sketch

Second, the color scheme is from  Sunday Stamps

The background for my card was created by taking my ink pads and directly and strategically streaking my shimmery white card stock until I loved the wood look.  I'm very pleased with the outcome.

Third, the theme is from The Paper Players

I used the Vintage Leaves stamp set in the current Stampin' Up! catalog to create this simple leaf.

Well, after a bit of an absence, I'm back today with a fun group of gorgeous Stampin' Up! card samples from paper crafters all around the blogosphere!  I can't get over the amount of talent which surrounds us!  Thanks to each person for sharing that talent with all of us.  
Remember, if you haven't begun your hand stamped holiday cards, it's not too late.  
Here ya go!

Be inspired,

Candy Canes and Cookies for CCMC#423

Hello Again, Stamping Friends!

Today's card was inspired by the new sketch challenge over at the Create With Connie and Mary Blog
 I immediately knew I wanted to use the new Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle for my card, and keep the design really simple to allow the new Cable Knit embossing folder to shine.  
I also wanted this card to be easily mass produced and mailed.  ;-)

 I hope you enjoy!

Happy Stamping,

Here is the sketch:

And my card:

The other fun new products I used were also part of the Candy Cane Lane suite of products,  and the new Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder (It's incredible!!) The "Joy" sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Greetings

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek: Petals and Paisleys for PPA 314

Hello Stamping Friends!

Well, it's been a busy time of life for us and my stamping offerings have been non-exsistent.  I hope to share with you a little more consistently in the next few months.  

In the Stampin' Up! world a new holiday catalog is going to be released on Sept. 1, and my card offering for you today is from the new catty.  It's based on the inspiration sketch from Paper Pal Arts.

I used the soon-to-be-released designer series paper called Petals & Paisleys, along with the new stamp set, Paisleys & Posies.  I love the new Mint Macaron taffeta ribbon paired with the paper as well.   Swoon! 

I hope you enjoy it and take some time to use this sketch for your own inspiration as well.

It's good to be back today to post an offering for the The Paper Players color challenge this week.  I have pretty much fallen head over heels in love with the Blooms and Bliss designer series paper in the new Stampin Up annual catalog.  Gosh it's so soft and pretty, and it worked perfectly with this color challenge from Nance
I hope you check into using this beautiful new paper too! 
Enjoy and happy stamping,
