Another Card/Envelope set. This one is my favorite. I love this little kitten and the eerie pumpkin. The pumpkins on the envelope are from Stampers Anonymous, I don’t know which year that set came out. 2019?? Loving the envelope art this weekend!
Happy Sunday! I was thrilled to see the matching envelope and card set challenge over at SSS Wednesday challenge!! I worked exclusively on envelopes this weekend for my autumn/Halloween cards. Here is my first set. Enjoy!
TGIF! It’s the weekend! What a better way to start the weekend off than with some CAS card making?! This card was inspired by the colors over at The Color Throwdown Challenge. It is simply two colors of cardstock, a die and some craft cord. I didn’t have grey or cream craft cord, but I had white. A little spray down with Distressed Oxide sprays in Pumice Stone and Antique Ivory, and viola… cream and grey craft cord. After finishing, I looked at the card and thought this was a fabulous masculine, thank you card. Thoughts?
May your weekend be as beautiful as your thoughts are!
It’s Christmas Crafting Time!! After watching the new Stampersanonymous video on Youtube, it was impossible to resist Christmas Crafting. I used the Hero Arts set Meowy Christmas and MHA November 2019. My color palate came from the current MFT color challenge. Simple stamping and Copic coloring (BG15,C3,C5) provided my images and the background is Copic Markers (R46,YG63,BG15) and a stencil. It’s hard to see….but the white background has white embossed snowflakes. The tree and cat have Nuvo drops in burgandy and black. “Meowy Christmas” is simple silver embossing.
“It is never too early to start crafting for Christmas.”
Welcome to the weekend, crafters! I have a CAS card this morning. At first glance it may not look CAS…. look again, it is a scene paper from Whimsy stamps. My characters are from a older stamp set by Craftin’ Desert Divas’ Fall Fairies. They were stamped on 80 lb white cardstock with simple Copic coloring mixed with a little Prismacolor pencils. The sentiments are from Tim Holtz’s Tiny Text CMS394 embossed with Emerald Creek’s Aroma Holiday Truffle.
My young friend, Stacy, is new to crafting and in particular, crocheting. She decided to crochet herself a sweater for Christmas this year. Her selfie shows her glamming her mothers shoes and her new outfit. Stacy loves bows as well; she is working on perfecting her look. I think she looks fab! Her silly mother insisted on her meme.
Good morning, crafters! I received my first ever Hero Arts subscription box yesterday and couldn’t wait to play with it. This stamp set reminded me of autumn, when I was a young teenager in Wisconsin. Allow me to paint my memory: It’s a early fall day in rural Wisconsin. It is a sunny, late morning, about eighty degrees. You hop on your bike and just start peddling. All you can smell is sweet fresh air and you see nothing but fields of flowers for hours, rarely encountering anyone. Pure peace and beauty. I was hoping to create some peaceful beauty with some inspiration and encouragement.

“Every day may not be good, but there is good in every day.”
Welcome, foolish mortals. I invite you for a treat. It is beginning to look a little inky. It is indeed, Copic color YG21 followed by some distressing delight (Black Soot, Old Paper, Antique Linen) on bistol smooth cardstock. Is this haunted card glowing? or is it your imagination? It appears to be a glow from the spirits of LawnFawn and MissInk. If you decide to join in the fun, arrangements with Madame Leota can be encountered at Kindred Stamps. But I must warn you, should you decide to add the ghostly sentiment, your ghost writer can only be found at Whimsy stamps.
