Challenge 56 - Monochrome


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season and is spending their New Years with family and friends!  I'm actually going to see the ball drop in NYC (on my bucket list!) so this post is scheduled. :D  I'll have some pics sooner or later! 

Anywho, There's a new challenge at Lia Stampz this fortnight! We want to see your monochrome projects! 


Here is my project:

I used the digi called Chemistry.  Colored him with Copics.  He's so stinkin cute, I've been coloring him every year for Valentine's cards!  The paper is from a new Stampin Up paper stack called Fresh Prints.  LOVE the little dab of coastal cabana in back of the red polka dots! Used Stampin Up card stock, twine, heart punch, dies, and rhinestone.  The sentiment just says, "I heart You." :D


Can't wait to see what you guys create!

Scribbles Midway Project - Shades of White


Its Dec 31! Which means we're halfway through our Scribbles Designs challenge!  This month, we want to see your Shades of White projects. Here's my midway project:



I used the image called All Hearts Come Home.  Love Sandy's penmanship! Didn't have to do much to this digi! I just cut it out using some dies and popped them up on each other.  I stamped some Stampin Up whisper white card stock with some red and green hearts.  Added a few punched hearts (popped up) with tiny rhinestones.  Done!


You don't need a Scribbles image to play, but if you do use a Scribbles image, however, you can enter as many times as you wish.  Go here to play with us!

Wanna get this digi or any other of Scribble's designs? Check out the Scribbles Designs store! 

Can't wait to see what you guys create!

Paper by Basic Grey 25th and Pine.  Stampin Up card stock, ink, framelit die, and rhinestone. 


Created a punch art wreath out of scallop circle and circle punches.  Added some liquid pearls and ribbon to finish them off!

Mahalo for reading and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

On the 7th day of Christmas I created some gift tags!



These were easy: Just covered some manila tags with paper from the Fabulous Christmas stack.  Used a Stampin Up photopolymer set for the banner.  Added a paper reinforcement, rhinestone, and baker's twine.


I used the Stampin Up Chalk Talk framelits to make these.  Paper is from The paper Studio All Seasons II Stack.  Stamps, ribbon, ink, and twine are all Stampin Up.


More covered manila tags.  More paper from Fabulous Christmas stack.  The stamp is from the Happy Hour set from Stampin Up.  I bought the larger red clips from Etsy.


Also made a tag set! Everything is retired Stampin Up product that I got on sale and I just added little embellishments like new stamped greetings, rhinestones, and ribbon or twine.


Stamped on these manila tags for a vintage Christmas look.  I used several Stampin Up stamp sets that had snowflakes.  Everything is Stampin Up on this one (except the manila tags). Loved the color combo!

This sweet guy wanted to get a Christmas card for his Mom who likes the beach.  This is what I came up with! I used all Stampin Up card stocks.  The paper is from Basic Grey's 25th and Pine stack.  The beach die cut is from Pack Your Bags, the crab is from Create a Critter, and the santa hat is from Pooh and Friends.  Added lots of stickles! I used regular stickles for the lights on the tree and SU glitter gel for the sand.  It gives it a sugary texture!

Happy 12 Days of Christmas!

On the first day of Christmas I created some felt cards:

I wanted to make a dainty pink Christmas card.  The felt pieces I used for both projects are some retired Stampin Up felt pieces.  I stocked up a few years ago when they went on clearance.  I used vanilla and pink pirouette card stock and topped it with some glitter paper from DCWV Le Tres Chic stack.  I think they look like blue poinsettias!  Stampin up vanilla taffeta ribbon and pearl top it off.  The stamp is from a new Stampin Up photopolymer set. 

I used some mitten felt on this one.  The paper is from The Paper Studio All Seasons II.  Just topped it off with Stampin Up crumb cake card stock and taffeta ribbon, pearl, and stamped a sentiment on vanilla card stock (from Happy Hour).

Hope you liked my first installment of The 12 Days of Christmas!
(I have one of the pink ones left in my shop, if you'd like to purchase one! The mitten cards are sold out!)

Scribbles Design Challenge - Midway Project


Its Nov 30! Which means we're halfway through our Scribbles Designs challenge!  This month, we want to see your Remembrance cards and add an (optional) fancy fold. Here's my project:


I used the image called Spring Rain Flowers.  All I did was print them on different shades of green card stocks.  Cut out the middle portion of the big flower and popped it up, to give it dimension.  I added some newsprint paper, stamped on some stems, and added some pearls.  Easy peasy! Love that Sandy's doodle designs are so intricate that you don't really need anything to make the card POP!
