Magic of the Season...

Hey there crafty friends!  I shared this card over on the Right at Home Facebook page a couple weeks ago, but thought I would stop in and share it here, too.  Right at Home's Holiday release is so much fun.  I just love this set called Christmas Foliage and the sentiment set, Magic of the Season....


I stamped the boughs in a couple of greens so there would be slight variation.  Then I added in the steps and berries for some color.  I have a roll of glitter tape that no longer has any sticky left to it for some reason.  So I added a piece under the edge of the sentiment box and it turned out looking a little like a piece of glitter ribbon.  It works!  :)


Head on over to Right at Home to see more of what they have for the Holiday!  Thanks so much for stopping in today!

MFT December Product Launch...

There are so many fun new products this months release over at MFT, but the Nurse in me is loving the new Feel Better stamps and dies.  Oh and the band aids? CUTE!

Here is a quick and simple, colored pencil colored, get well card...


I stamped, and colored and then die cut these cute little pill bottles and added it to this stitched panel. Next, I added the sentiment and finished the card off by adding it to a red card base.  


Head on over to the MFT Blog to see all the rest of the samples for the December release....and to shop!  Happy Shopping!  Thanks for stopping in....

MFT Release Countdown Day 3....

Welcome to Day 3 of the MFT December Release Countdown!  There is some super cute stuff this month, as always, and I have a fun little set to share with you today.

I really want to master the art of the Copic.  I generally steer clear from coloring but I always like to try.  So I used this cute little gal for a test run.  Solid coloring....I have mastered.  Blending always gets me.  So here she is....super CAS...but a fun card for a friend!

November 2016 MFT

Lets not focus on her hair.  Lets focus on the fact that I made little wrinkles on her shirt.  This shading is a win for me.  It's not perfect by any means, but its shading, and for me I call that successful.  This gives me the ambition to keep trying!  :)  Now as for the hair?  That is when I text my friend Lori and ask her to come over and help me!

This adorable little gal is from MFT and the stamp set is called Bookworm and she will be available on December 6th over at MFT!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have a great day!

Peace, Love, Joy...

I am so ready for Christmas.  I love all the decorating and gift buying and parties and card making!  I have made lots of tags this year and I found a new favorite set from Right at Home Stamps.  I shared this over on the RAH blog the other day and thought I would share it here too!

The new set is called Holiday Ribbons.  This set works for quick and easy tags!


I simply stamped the scalloped border and the little red flowers ribbon onto a piece of card stock.  I lined up my die after the stamping was complete and then cut.  This way, all the details from the stamps were perfectly lined up.  I added some banner in, with a heat embossed sentiment from Christmas Foliage.  I added in some ribbon and twine to finish the tag.


There is so much to see in this months Holiday Release here at Right at Home Stamps.  Head on over and check it out!  

Thanks so much for coming by today!

Sympathy cards...

These are the hardest cards to make, knowing that the recipient is hurting.  These are also the most rewarding cards to make, because you hope that it makes someone's day a little brighter.

I have a super simple sympathy card, using some of MFT's November Release....

November 2016 MFT

First, I did a little ink blending with Tumbled Glass on the card base.  I added in the birch Solid Birch Trees in a light gray yardstick, then added the Birch Tree detailed dies on top.  I love that extra detail with the subtle color popping through.  I stamped the sentiment in black and then added in a vellum snowflake.

November 2016 MFT

I tried to take a good photo of the snowflake because just the ends are dusted with glitter.  I did that by adding some Tombow Tape Runner adhesive to the ends, and then dipping each one in glitter.  This picture is a tad darker, but I was able to get some of the sparkle....

This is it for today!  I hope you are all ready for December.  It's gonna hit in just a couple hours.  I can't believe Christmas is almost here!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
