Silent Night gift bag!

I hate to mention it, but Christmas is right around the corner!! I get heart palpitations just thinking about how close it is and all that I need to do prior! :-) Am I the only one who is just....not....ready??  

Well, if it wasn't for my Card Club, I'm not sure I would have come up with anything 'crafty' yet for the Holidays! I'm blessed by my group of ladies that call me to be crafty every now and then. :-)

A Gift bag seemed the right way to deliver the first Holiday project! Night of Navy, some silver accents, gorgeous snowy trees and of course......snow and a sleigh.....and you have Christmas!! :-)

This is an easy project when you have the Gift Bag punch! Create 3 sizes with this wonderful little gadget......Small, Medium and Large. This project features the small size. I know you will love all that you can do with it! So......hurry up and get crafty! :-)

Oldies but Goodies!!

I have a real hard time getting rid of a lot of my stamp sets!! I have an equally hard time resisting buying really cute stamp sets.....even if they are retired!! This dragon set is one of those!
I  could  not  resist!! :-)
Hope you enjoy this little guy as much as I did coloring him and figuring out a way to 'present' him!

Halloween Night!

Another great catalog.....and another great Holiday catalog!!!

With Halloween fast approaching, I thought I better whip up a card with some of the new stamps and embossing folders featured in the Holiday catalog!! The wonderful ladies in my Card Club cursed my name over this card. Lol. It was all about cutting and placing the moon! :-)

To achieve the white trees on the black card stock, you just ink up your embossing folder with Kraft white (the raised trees side) and roll through your Big Shot with your black piece of card stock. Easy, but can be a bit messy. ;-) This is now my all-time favorite embossing folder!!!!

Hope you are inspired to enjoy your embossing folders other than the typical way!

Here's the supplies I used! 


Great products!! The spider web doilies are fantastic......and they are white on the backside!!! Are you thinking what I'm thinking? 

Have fun shopping!!

Surf's Up!

My oh my, do I love this turtle!!!
He's SO darn cute and he completely sold me on this new stamp set!
Another win for Stampin' Up! with "From Land to Sea!"

The background I created by cutting out some pointy 'rays' out of paper and using it as a mask while I daubered color onto the background. Then I spritzed a bit of water across it to give dimension to the water and then after it was dry, I stamped the coral in a few different colors.

Mr cute sea turtle was cut out and colored using a blender pen and inks. :-) Super easy!

Hope you have as much fun with your turtle!!
