cutting room floor

Hey Everyone, hope you're having a great week so far! Todays card I made a while back for the Pretty Pink Posh to be a guest designer. I wasn't chosen (but that won't stop my from trying again another time).

When I applied for the designer spot she had given 4 cards as inspiration to use! I picked a Joni Andaya cause really who doesn't love her work! Completely stunning all the time!!!

So heres my "cutting room floor" card if you will!! I just love how it turned out!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

plaid winter wonderland

Happy Tuesday everyone!! So I'm finally pulling out the holiday cards! I've had some made for awhile now but it just seemed to early even tho everyone has put out their new holiday releases.

I can't get enough of the Simon Says Stamp jumbo stripes stamp set! Its so much fun to use and so versatile. I love that you can go diagonal on a card! So thats what I did here! For the colour pallet I used my favourite dye inks from Wplus9 (last leaf, appletini, coconut husk, warm wool, cranberry crush)..I've also be waiting to play with the Tim Holtz scribbly christmas set too, and thought it would look so good embossed in liquid platinum embossing powder!! I also used that for the sentiment too!! Love how it turned out and I sure hope you enjoy too!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

challenge among friends

Hey Everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Todays card is brought to you by a challenge my friend Natashas husband put out to us (we craft via texting…one of those fabulous friends that lives to far away). His challenge was one person pick a stamp set (we both have) and the other person pick the colour combo. Not to mention this fits perfectly in with the Wplus9 Throwback challenge...

Natasha decided that we use Wplus9 spring blooms and fanciful feathers for the sentiment. And I chose the colour combo; smokey slate, night of navy, soft sky,  lost lagoon and pistachio pudding (all Stampin Up! colours)

It was a super fun challenge to do, think we will be giving it a whirl again sometime soon!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

fall love

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by today! Here in Canada we just celebrated Thanks giving and so I thought I would share this card for you that screams fall!!!

I made this card on world card making day with some new goodies I got!! That background fancy leaves stamp from Impression Obsession. I saw it and imagined this card in my head!! I just love how it turned out and always fun to mush distress inks on a stamp and spritz with water for a somewhat controlled water colour effect!! 

I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by!!
