Last of the 2015 Cards

Just before taking off on 3 weeks of travel to Ohio and California earlier this month, I made these three cards at my beloved Tuesday Crafty group.   The stamp is from Technique Tuesday and I used some stencils and distress inks to add some interest. The sentiment comes along with the flower stamp. My Mother loved Agapantha's and when I saw this set, I knew I had to have it. She would have loved the cards.

Thanks so very much for stopping by.  Wishing you a New Year filled with good times, good friends, and good health.

Tis the season

I have fallen in love with coloring, and it is all because of Kelly Latevola of You and Your Big Dreams. Her colored images are so gorgeous.  I need lots of practice still, but even I can see I am improving.

Back in February, I had a very busy week and I missed the Merry Monday challenge closing date for a challenge using bows.  I made the card before I double checked the closing time.

I used a Lawn Fawn stamp set, some distress inks, some post it's for masking and stickles for shine.  The bows are glittered epoxy bows left over from a Simon Says Stamp card kit.

White Christmas

White Christmas is the name of the Stampin Up stamp set that I am totally crushing on.  I sat down with it to play a bit while increasing my stack of holiday cards.  I have 5 cards so lets get on with it!

I love that they provide both the right and left facing birds.  I had so much fun making these...I wonder if they will get stamps and be mailed.

Thanks for stopping by!

A quick lil something

Today is my last crafty Tuesday of the year with the group of women I've recently joined. I wanted to bring a little token something to give to each of them.  I stopped by Target and found cute gift card sized pillow boxes in white with green and red foiled dots.  They were 3 to a pack for 1.00.

I picked up a bag of Ghiradellli Peppermint Bark squares and a bit of red gift bag filler.  I figured I could put 3 squares in each with a bit of filler and make a tag for the front and it would be a cute crafty lil something.

What do you think?

I cut the tag with a PTI die, stamped and white embossed the Stampin Up Sentiment and added a string bow with a tiny Pretty Pink Posh jingle bell.  Hope you are having a fabulous day!

With Thanksgiving behind us, the holiday card scramble is in full gear in my crafty spot.  Since it is such a busy time of year, I am going to post photos and not much else. No time for reading lengthy posts I fear.

Have a great day!
