Love Lolita Pumpkin

Hi all! I think I messed up a little yesterday. Apparently the featured Spotlight CT at Two Peas didn't go up as I thought it would. So sorry about that. I will link you to it once I know it's up. Thanks for your patience! =)

The Sweet Amy R. over at All That Scraps Blog posted the last cards that I made as a guest designer on Monday. I am very behind on posting them here, but I will get to them as soon as I can! Here is a card that I made using one of C.C. Designs' September releases.


She is Love Lolita Pumpkin. She is so cute and just in time for Halloween.


I paired her with Making Memories' Spook Alley collection from last year. Patting myself on back for digging those out. =) I used Martha Stewart's fence punch on the patterned paper then randomly cut it to make it look like it's a distroied/haunted fence. Thanks to my sweet friend Donna for this tip! =)


The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Midnight Feast set. I again used the Papertrey Ink bookmark die for the tag. I first cut the paper out using the die, stamped the sentiment then trimmed it to size. I rounded the bottom corners before inking it with tea dye.

That's all I have for today. Have a beautiful day, my friends! =)

Little Autumn Girl with The Apple Of My Eye &Lily's Enchanted Forest

Happy Wednesday! I have a couple of hybrid cards to share with you today.


I used the adorable little girl and leaves from Holly Brooke Jones' digital kit 
Little Autumn Girl for this card. The images in this kit came pre-colored, so that saved me coloring time! =) I resized a few of the leaves from the kit and scattered them around to make it look like they are fallen autumn leaves. I pop dotted a few of them for dimension as well.


The background and hill papers are from Vinnie Pearce's The Apple Of My Eye kit. Yeah, I can't stop using this kit... =) The sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.


I am the featured Spotlight CT on the Two Peas Digi Designers Blog today and this is the card that I made for it.


I used an older kit created by Holly Brooke Jones called Lily's Enchanted Forest for this card. You know I adore Holly's style and this kit is so cute. I love this little owl. The sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts. You can go to this link to read the interview about me if you are interested. =)

That's it for today. Hope your have a wonderful day! =)

September Card Chain Challenge

Hello, my friends! I am so happy to participate in Deborah's Card Chain Challenge again. This is a wonderful challenge where each participant gets a handmade card from a fellow card maker. It's always so fun to be part of it. This time I am the lucky recipient of two of Nancy's amazing cards. Here they are:


Isn't this such a beauty? I fell in love the minute I saw it! Nancy spritzed Perfect Pearls water over the card to give it the beautiful shine that I just love. Also, the pretty and subtle Starburst Lace on the background is such a wonderful touch.


Here is the card that Nancy used to write her sweet messages in. The Silhouette Bells panel is just amazing! The background is done so perfectly with such pretty colors. I am so lucky! Thank you so much for your beautiful cards and the yummy goodies you included in the envelope, Nancy! I love them! =)

Here is the card that I sent to Yvette in Belgium.


I used the super adorable Pirate Luka from La La Land Crafts for my card. This cute boy just makes me smile! One of the challenge theme is pirates and Luka is perfect for it.


The map patterned paper is from K & Company, the blue polka dot one is from My Mind's Eye and the red and cream one is from Teresa Collins. They are from an old scrapbook kit from Cocoa Daisy.


I distressed the paper edges then inked them with tea dye. I then added some hand stitching for a rustic look and hoping that they go well with the pirate theme. The sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.

Big thanks to Deborah for hosting this fun challenge and congrats on the one year anniversary of the challenge! =)

That's all for now. Hope your week is off to a fantastic start!

Mystery Monday with Sweet n Toxic

Hello everyone. I am here to share my last cards as a guest designer for Club Anya & Friends. Sniff... sniff... I had so much fun playing with the new releases and was so happy to be able to work with some of the most talented ladies in the industry. Big thank you to Jessica for inviting me! =)


Here is my card for this week's Mystery Monday. We were to case this pretty card by Kim Yu.


I used the Creeper girl from the Sweet n Toxic set. I chose to paper piece her this time. I also replaced the skulls on her hair with two little flowers. The patterned paper that I used is from Melissa Frances' Kitschy Kitchen collection. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.


Here is another card with the same Creeper girl that I made for the release at the beginning of the moth, but I didn't use it. I tried to keep the coloring on this one very light for a change. Diamond Stickles was added to the pink part of her dress and her eye shadow.


The patterned paper is from the indie girl collection by Sassafras. I used Tim's fun scallop die on the pink paper, too. The sentiment came with the Sweet n Toxic set. The seam binding is dyed with barn door.

Don't for get to go to Club Anya & Friends to check out what the members of Team Anya came up with for this week's Mystery Monday and how you can join the fun!

Sketchy Saturday on Sunday (agian)

Happy Sunday, my friends! How is your weekend? We are having a warm one. It's a little weird since we had a unseasonably cool summer and now that it's fall it became unseasonably warm. I'll try and stay away from the heat. Hope you are enjoying a beautiful early autumn day in your corner of the world! =)


Here is my card for this week's Sketchy Saturday over at Club Anya & Friends. Here is the sketch:

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #16

Hi all! Thanks for joining me for a card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch:
Here is my card:


I used one of the elegant sentiments from the Fancy Phrases set.


The patterned papers are from Vinnie Pearce's digital kit- The Apple Of My Eye. Isn't those papers just gorgeous? I love them. They can be found by themselves in the Art Papers VII kit as well. I inked all the paper edges with tattered rose.


The cute little puppy on the butterfly wing is just so sweet. Such a lovely touch. You can find the butterflies in the Art On Wings SET03 if you are a butterfly lover.  Or you can get them all in the Collection kit. I am in love with this kit! =)

You can use any stamps you want for the challenge, but we would love it if you can use Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please go to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other Mischief Makers came up with and check out all the details for the challenge.

Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #129

Happy Friday! It's time for another Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. First is the sketch:


Here is my card:


Ok, don't laugh. I know it looks like she is standing in a pile of dirt rather than in a pile of leaves... I know I messed up on that, but she is still cute, right? =)


She is illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller and is called Autumn-winds Natural Style. I think this is a retired stamp from Stampavie. You can find Stampavie stamps here.


I paired her with patterned papers from Vinnie Pearce's gorgeous The Apple of My Eye digital kit. This is an amazing kit and I adore the sweet colors in it. You can find those lovely papers in the Basic Kit, the Papers kit or in the Collection kit. Just to let you know that I have a couple more cards made using this beautiful kit to share with you in the next few days! =)


That's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:

Fall Charlotte

Happy Fall! To celebrate the arriving of fall, I am sharing a fall themed card! Ok, I didn't really plan this, it's just a nice coincidence. =) Here is a card that I made for the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #11.


The challenge theme is Anything Fall. When I first saw this beauty, I knew I had to have her! She is Fall Charlotte. I think she is gorgeous and had a lot of fun coloring her.


I was inspired by the beautiful creations from Nichol Magouirk. She has been making amazing cards with pretty backgrounds for her images using the masking technique. Here is one example. I didn't have the Stamping Mask Paper that Nichol used, so I used plain printer paper for my mask. I like how it looked and will be doing this more often. The Stamping Mask Paper is now on top of my wish list! =)


The patterned papers are from BasicGrey's lush Indian Summer collection. The Friend Definition background was stamped with tea dye. The image piece and the sentiment label are also inked with tea dye and a little vintage photo on the edges. The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink. The seam binding is dyed with fired brick.

That's all I have for today. Hope you have a lovely day! =)

Tootin about treat and gift holders

Hi all! I did a simple treat holder tutorial over at Club Anya & Friends today. Here is my project.

I used Hallo Bride and Hallo Skeleton digis for my project. The patterned papers are from Graphic 45's Halloween In Wonderland collection.

Hope you will play along with us!

storybook & Spring Fling

 Hello, my friends! I have a couple of hybrid cards to share with you today.


I used Polka Dot Pixels' storybook kit for this card. I love the retro look of this kit so much! The colors are beautiful, too. I printed and cut out the little boys from one of the patterned papers and pop dotted it to the card. The sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.


My second card is made using papers and elements from Jo Hanna's beautiful Spring Fling kit. I love the fresh colors and fun elements in this kit.

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #15

Happy Saturday! Thanks for joining me for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:
Here is my take on the sketch:


Yeah, I am still having fun with the super cute Half Pint Heroes set. This rocket is so adorable and fun! There are several cute faces that came with this set so that you can stamp them on the vehicles that they ride in. I covered the window with Glossy Accents after coloring the image.


I stamped the moon and stars that came with the set and covered them with some yellow Stickles after coloring them. I then cut them out and adhered them on the embossed kraft piece with some rolled up glue dots.


The papers that I used are from K & Company's Daydreams collection. I got this cute collection from my local Michaels. The funky scalloped border is cut using this Tim Holtz die. The sentiment came with the Half Pint Heroes set.

You can use any stamps you want for the challenge, but we would love it if you can use Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please go to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other Mischief Makers came up with and check out all the details for the challenge.

Hope you can join us this week!

Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! =)
