Impression Obsession BOO !


It's time for a sketch from Nance this week for the Paper Players!



I turned it...... and came up with this Halloween card:


I found a piece of fun Halloween paper in my scrap box to use for the base. The BOO is a die cut from Impression Obsession, it comes with a cute hat, ghost and tiny cat. I also cut out a small banner and stamped the sentiment from Lizzie Anne Little Bits.

I've made quite a few fall cards the past few weeks, both Halloween and Thanksgiving.  I have to say I'm not anxious for summer to end, but then again fall is SO beautiful up north. I can hardly wait for the colors to change!

Poppystamps Ornament Trio


Good Morning!

Today I'm sharing a card for the Christmas Card Challenges that I made last fall. I forgot all about posting it! So I guess today is the day!


One of my friends had just bought Poppystamps ornament trio cut out die, so we were playing around with it. We used some silver foil paper to cut out the bow and sentiment. We tried several colors, but I really like the ones with navy. These would be great for mass producing..so easy!

Hope you will head on over to the Christmas Card Challenges and play along!

Jillybean Lemonade



Hi everyone!

SWEET Sandy has a SWEET challenge for us at The Paper Players this week:





I chose to make a lemonade shaker card. The stamps and die are from Jillybean Soup. You can buy a special insert for the shaker, but I just used some cellophane.




I didn't have any yellow sequins, so I had to pick them all out from a combo pack. LOL! That took  longer then the card!

I think this is a fun challenge...I LOVE anything sweet...can't wait to visit your blogs and see your creations!

Poppystamps Lux Poinsettia



Good Morning!

I had lots of fun with this color challenge at the Christmas Card Challenge this week:


I found some pretty patterned paper and made a card with Poppystamps Lux Poinsettia die. It's one of my favorite Christmas dies, I love the elegant look:



I adhered it to Avery Elle wonky stitched rectangle, and added an enamel dot in the center. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions In and Out Christmas,stamped with Delicata Silvery Shimmer.

Cheery Lynn Lighthouse



Good Morning!

Today's card is made with 3 dies...Papertrey's sun ray, Blueprints #20 stitched rectangle, and Cheery Lynn Lighthouses. The sentiment is from Inky Antics "Shining Lantern."

I love this verse! It comes from Matthew 5 verse 16:

"Let your light so shine before men,that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

I think a light house is the perfect image to illustrate this!

I'm entering this at some of my FAVE challenges today...YAY...that I don't always have time to play with!

Dies R Us August Doilies/lace Challenge





Hi everyone!
The new challenge at Dies R Us is Doilies and/or lace.
Right a way I thought of a wedding card, and dug out this gorgeous couple from Tattered Lace. I love her lacy dress! I thought Taylored expressions circles cutting plate would be perfect for the background...it has that lattice doily look.

I do have one more wedding coming up soon, so I will set this aside for that. This summer was a busy one with graduations and weddings....always so much fun!

The links to the dies I used are below this photo...takes you right to the Dies R Us store. Tons of new dies just came in...you can check that out here. My wish list is a long one...LOL!

Technique Tuesday School House



Time for Claire's color challenge at The Paper Players!


I thought of "back to school" right away.




 So I decided to make a school house scene out of Technique Tuesday's Happy Home die. 
The fun patterned Stick Tree's and Country Fence are from Poppystamps. I cut out the sun and clouds with Lawn Fawns Spring Showers. Everything is adhered to LIl Inkers rounded stitched rectangles.

School starts here in just a few weeks, and I see kids and parents out buying school supplies already. Hard to believe summer is almost over!
