May Your Spirits Be Bright

Hi! Today I decided to start making Christmas cards for the upcoming season. I used several die cuts to make this winter scene. 

The sentiment is from Verve stamps and I used navy blue ink and embossing powder to match the paper. The paper is park of a new collection called Cabin Fever. 

I layered lots of snow trees together. Some are form Sizzix and some are from Impression Obsession. 

The deers are also from Impression Obsession. The hillside are from Lawn fawn. One of my favs from them. I layered two stitched circles together with pop dots behind the smaller one. The snow grass is from Cheery Lynn Designs. 

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great day!

Let It Snow With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! Is it snowing yet by you? Well here in the valley of the sun it is just beginning to cool down...meaning 80' Today I wanted to share another new card using some more fabulous die cuts from Cheery Lynn Designs

I die cut foam with "let it snow" so it pops off the card. The "wreath" I die cut once in green. I thought about cutting it out again but I thought it speaks for itself. 

The "icicles" and "winter neighborhood border" I added some liquid appliqué to give it a realistic snow look.

Thanks again for stopping by today. 
Have a great week.

Black Widow

Hi! Welcome back to my blog with my latest card for my stash. I have been making lots of cute Halloween and Christmas cards, but I do love the creepiness of a Halloween card too.
This card was made using a couple Black Widow Spiders from Cheery Lynn Designs. 

The paper is from Martha Stewart from a Halloween collection that I bought years ago because it was so creepy. I used lots of red paper to match the black widow trade mark. The ribbon was given to me by Julee from Verve. Thank you! 

The spiderweb and boo are from Sizzix newest Halloween collection by Tim Holtz. The inside dripping are from Martha how it looks like blood....perfect! 

The roses are from Recollections and I distressed the edges of the papers. 
The black swirls are from Memory Box.

Hope you enjoyed!

"Baby Its Cold Outside" Blog Hop With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! Welcome back to another fun Blog Hop with Cheery Lynn Designs! This month our theme is "Baby, It's Cold Outside" If your coming from Julie's Blog you are in the right place. Well here in AZ the weather is finally breaking into our autumn. So that means no more air conditioning! lol 
However, I do remember the midwest weather this time of the then one last spell of indian summer....then COLD! 

Here is my very first bendy card....I have made some since then and the posts are prior to this one...
Lots and Lots of Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts. 

I chose white, black, silver, blue, and purple for my colors. The colors are cool to me. 

I added gala glitz to the centers of the "poinsettias" with silver "holly leaves". I used a glitter pen on the sentiment to give it a bit of shine. I die cut out several "Christmas Trees" in white and made a couple of "presents" with silver and purple.

I made 2 "patches the snowman's" and one is male and one is female. I also die cut out to "colonial posts" with silver lights.

The large "stitched circle" was cut out twice for more support for the moon. I placed "santa's sleigh and reindeer" across the circle. 

On the back...I added some icicles....

Autumn Greetings

Hello again! Twice in a day...been on a roll with Autumn and Halloween cards lately. There are so many inspirational blogs that have been keeping my Mojo going. 
This card made a few minutes ago was inspired by the Color Throwdown #464
The colors are orange, taupe and black. 

I used several companies for this card...Verve stamps, Lawn Fawn leaves and hillside, Cuttlebug embossing plate, Martha Stewart punch and Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts. 

I tend to make similar insides so I can add a gift card and lots of room for my personal greeting.

I love the details of the wood background and the details in the leaves. 

A cute little squirrel and some orange bling throughout. 

Thanks for stopping by again today!
