10 Amazing Years

Sunday, September 30, 2012

 
 
 
I am having so much fun playing with this harlequin stamp set from PTI.  With just one of the stamps you can create such cool patterns.  I made another pattern that reminds me of Q-bert and another one that you'll see on Tuesday's new ColourQ card.  I think that one's my favorite.  Can't wait to show you.
 
 
I am also entering this card into the JUGS156 challenge.  It's a little (a lot) early, but Ryan and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary in May.  I'm sure I'll end up making another card before the time comes, but the mood hit me to make it. 
 
 
We had such a good time last night.  For my birthday, Ryan gave me tickets to see Missy Higgins.  We saw her at the Tower Theater.  It was such a great little place with great sound.  After her show she came out to say hello and sign autographs.  I got my CD signed.  So cool!

I love the colors and patterns in this line of papers!
And I still haven't had enough of cute little banners:)


 
 
Now that we are getting closer to Christmas, I decided to send everyone a notepad to decorate and use to help them stayed organized during the holiday season!


Each month we also CASE a card from a previous kit.   I decided to CASE a card that Christina made

Reflected Sentiments

Tuesday, September 25, 2012



 
This was a fun technique that I plan to experiment with more.  My reflected image came out a bit splotchy.  I'm not sure if it was due to the ink or the acetate or what....
 
 
Thanks for coming by today!

ColourQ #156

Tuesday, September 25, 2012



I really love how this card came out.  I stamped the Faux Stripes onto Kraft cardstock and then die cut it using one of the Counting My Blessings word dies.  For the background, I stamped the rectangle and then masked it off to stamp the two trees, then colored the leaves with Copics.

 
Have some fun with these autumn colors and show us what you've created!

Grateful For You

Wednesday, September 19, 2012


 
I have been so lucky to meet so many wonderful people through my hobby. 
Everyone has been so kind and generous!  This heart die was another birthday surprise I received from a sweet friend I have made through a mutual love of paper crafting.
I was so shocked when I received this die and a few other goodies yesterday.
So grateful for you!  Thanks again! 

 
Hope you are having a great week so far. 
 My brother is coming for a visit this weekend. 
I can't wait to see him!

Good Morning!
It is time once again, for a new challenge from the ColourQ!!
This beautiful inspiration photo just begged me to get out my rose stamps.

 
I love this chevron paper. 
 I have been trying to incorporate more patterned paper lately. 
I have so many pretty ones that I just don't use.
I hope you'll join us this week at the ColourQ!
 I'd love to see how this photo inspired you!
