A Little Tip

If you are looking for my Serendipity Stamps 
Fall and Halloween Hop click this link.

Tag You’re It ! # 5
Beautiful tags by Donna Mikasa

I learned this little tip, from Jackie Rockwell. Use a clear block to stand your tag on.  I added a bit of tape to the block. For this one I even added some tape to the top of the block, so the ribbon tails would stand up. 
Maybe some of you already know about this but if you didn’t :
 Now you do!

I love the beautiful tags that Donna created, this is my single version.

 I used many products on this one tag!

I think I won the ribbon. All card stock is from Papertrey Ink

 I am loving all the new stamps and dies on the Serendipity Stamps Store! I just simply painted the beautiful dies and done!  Well, that was after many other attempts at something else, I decided I wanted it simple and just let the colors be loud.

The card below was the wrong set so I had to hurry and make this one above, It’s even a bit wet. 

 For this card I used gold heat embossing powder, then brushed a bit of water on the leaf I was painting , then added a bit of paint and let the water move the paint. So easy and when embossed, it helps me stay in the lines...

I used my new paints to color this background then splattered a bit of water drops for the blotches. After is was dry I just heated embossed with clear powder and black Versa Mark Ink. I also stamped the background the same way, love that stamp!

Hi, quick post for today , I made this card yesterday while visiting Joyce and Kim. You would not believe how long it took me to make this simple card, I was too busy talking and getting distracted by anything crafty. All supplies are from Papertrey Ink.... or should I say Joyce :)  More on the visit another post.

Christmas Wreath?

Merry Monday #123 {Use a Wreath}

Hello, hope you had a nice weekend.  I was happy I had some time to make a card, for fun. This is heat embossed and painted with watercolors I only used two colors red and green. If you look closely you will see this is not a Christmas wreath at all, it's a fall wreath with pears, pumpkins and fall leaves.... I love this stamp so much I  had to make it Christmas. I love how it turned out. Fun to change things up a bit. 

My computer was down and I was gone most of the weekend , I did not get to play in PTI Stamp-a Fair at all. I have not even had a chance to look

Blessing to you!

Woke Up Early Made A Card

The Cutting Edge Challenge #8

This design is by the very talented Kay Miller , but you have to go to the blog and see Kay’s new card and the rest of the DT cards..... Absolutely amazing!

Hello, and thanks for stoping by! My card is a bit bolder version of Kay’s card but I wanted to use my Simple Sprig stamp and die from Waltzingmouse Mouse Stamps. I also used Big Day - Today. If I have time I would like to try a softer looking card.
Waltzingmouse is having a new stamp release, soon!

We will be going down to our daughters house this weekend, her husband, Tom has been fighting the fires in Northern Ca. for two weeks now. He just informed her one more week. Nicole is the one with 6 children. We just want to give her a bit of a breather. 
They needed medics and he answered the call. 

I hope you  have a wonderful weekend.
