Time for a Color Challenge!

Well this is kinda funny.  The card that I posted for Day 11 almost fits the bill for Day 12 of the 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge perfectly also!  Haha.  But I still have a new card to show you!  

Isn't that funny!  The color challenge is Blushing Bride, Soft Sea Foam, and Crumb Cake!  I love how this one turned out with the watercolored hollies though.  They are all embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Then watercolored with Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam. 😍  


I love the background they are adhered to also.  I stamped it with the Buffalo Check Background stamp. And then embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder!

I hope you enjoy this challenge!  Would love to see what you're making for these fun challenges!

Festive Floral for Day 11!

 Day 11 of the 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge!  Are you having as much fun as me?!  I love this boost to my crafting time...gives me motivation to use that creative space in my brain every day and I LOVE it.  I think we all need during this crazy year of 2020!  Who agrees?!  😀  Today's challenge is fun...all about Festive Floral.  But, once again, not so much your traditional colors.  I mean...I did do a take on tradition...pink is in the red family and I used a soft green.  So for you traditional lovers...this one is for you!  😉

I love this Perennial Flower Punch so decided to use that for this Festive Florals Challenge.  I also use the Poppy Moments Dies for a little background leaf...

The flowers are all embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and then watercolored with Petal Pink ink.  The background was watercolored with Soft Sea Foam Ink. 

The background was done with Shimmery White Embossing Paste & the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks.  I LOVE this stuff.  Adds such a fun pop and texture to your projects!  

I hope you enjoy this challenge and I hope you play along!  Please let me know if you have any questions! 

I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting!  I would love to help you with any of your papercrafting needs!

Starry Christmas Wishes...

Need a fun starting point to make a card?!  Start with a card sketch!  That is the challenge for Day 10 of the 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge.  And it is such a fun one!  


I wanted to use some fun stars to wish someone a Merry Christmas.  I LOVE these Stitched Stars Dies...they work for SO many occasions.  Even Christmas!  But...I did not use traditional Christmas colors again.  😱  I just love not using them, turns out.  Haha. 

Look how cute they layer:

Love the detailed one on top of the stitched one.  And I kinda love that I threw in a little Magenta Madness splash:

Dainty Diamonds is one of my favorite embossing folders FOR SURE!  

I hope you enjoy and I hope you play along with this fun challenge!

Ink Blending LOVE!

Day 8 of the 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge is a fun technique challenge...Ink Blending!  I LOVE this one so I loved this challenge, of course.  😀  For the ink blending here, I just took a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, used some sponges, and blended some Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Magenta Madness, and Melon Mambo ink onto the cardstock.  Then I embossed it with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  

SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Magenta Madness, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Basic Black
Inks:  Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Magenta Madness, Melon Mambo, VersaMark

And I know...this is a Christmas card making challenge.  This may not seem like super Christmas-y card.  BUT...who DOESN'T need some extra love at Christmas time?!  So in my mind...this is a great Christmas card you could send to give a little extra encouragement at that hectic & crazy time of year. 

Also...look at the fun details up close.  😀



That heart die-cut from the Be Mine Stitched Dies rocks my world!  Love it so much!  Hope you are playing along with this challenge!  Can't wait to see what you make!

Fabulous Colors With Heart To Heart!

It's Day 6 of the #30dayChristmasCardChallenge!  And I LOVE this challenge!  Because it is a FABULOUS color challenge!!!!

SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Magenta Madness, Basic Black, Granny Apple Green
Inks:  Magenta Madness Granny Apple Green, Memento Black
Cardstock/Papers:  Shimmery Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Heart to Heart, Tag Buffet
Tools: Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Tasteful Labels Dies
Accessories:  Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder,Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon

Isn't this FUN for a Christmas card?!  (I am EMBRACING the non-traditional colors because I realized I really don't like decorating and making projects with traditional colors and THAT IS OK!  😀  Totally love when other people love it and do it!  But for me...I am a non-traditional gal, and that's ok!  Hee.)

It is tough to photograph black, for the record.  But the black layer is embossed with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.  I LOVE the texture that adds...


And I just love these little flowers.  I have to admit...I cheated a bit.  I actually used Magenta Madness instead of Melon Mambo...because I just LOVE LOVE LOVE that color and can't stop using it.  😀  But...same idea.  So I think it is ok.  Hee.  Also...I embossed that Merry Christmas greeting with Clear Embossing Powder, after I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, and I just love how that makes it pop even more.


I hope you enjoy this card and come play along!

Snow Globe Goes Home...Day 5:

It is Day 5 of the #30dayChristmasCardMakingChallenge!  Are you following along?  Participating?  Want to give Martin a SHOUT OUT for putting this together?  🙌 Yeah...me too!!!  It is so much fun, and totally is giving me the motivation I need to get crafting!  (And if I can get motivation for a WINTER challenge...anyone can!  😊  Hee.  I hate winter.  Haha.)  This Day 5 challenge was a bit tough for me.  And have to be honest...this card took far longer to make than I care to admit.  Haha.  And I don't really love it.  But...you win some, and lose some, right?!  😏   It still has some fun details to it, and I like the colors a whole lot:

SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Purple Posy, Coastal Cabana, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight, Whisper White, Gold
Inks:  Purple Posy, Coastal Cabana, Magenta Madness, Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Cider, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, Shimmery Whisper White, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, Gold Foil Sheet, 2019-2021 In Color Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Still Scenes, Tree Angle
Tools: Snow Globe Scenes Dies, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Banners Pick a Punch, Heat Tool, Water Painters
Accessories:  Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, White Stampin Emboss Powder, Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack (gold thread), Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes, White Stampin Emboss Powder

So first detail I want to point out is the "snow".  I watercolored it with Whisper White Craft Ink.  Then, when it was wet, added some White Stampin' Emboss Powder to it.  I kinda love the look:

Another thing I want to point out is the embossed Window Sheet.  I embossed the globe part onto the Window Sheet, cut it out with the Snow Globe Scenes Dies, then adhered it over the house globe part.  I know it is hard to tell in the photo, but I LOVE the glassy look it adds over the house scene. 

And of course I never hate a good watercolor wash background...

I hope you enjoy this card!  And come play along!

Card Sketch With Peaceful Boughs...

Day 4 of the #30dayChristmasCardChallenge!  Are you playing along?!  Are you having fun yet?!  I know I am!  Today we have a card sketch for you!  First up...check out my card:

And then this is the sketch I used to get this card:

This Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set is from last year's Holiday collection.  And I am SO GLAD it is back, because it is cute!  I embossed and watercolored the boughs onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Then snipped them and added some vellum layers by using the coordinating Beautiful Boughs Dies.  😍  And then can we discuss just HOW MUCH I LOVE the Peace & Joy Stamp Set and the Joy Dies?!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!  (Love that punch of Magenta Maddness too!!! Swoon!!)
