Textured Poinsettia

Hello. Playing in the #563 Freshly Made Sketch Challenge today. 


I used a red/pink background from my stash to cut the poinsettia out. Added some fir branches around it and stuck a circle frame in gold per the sketch. 

I purposely left the strings (and added a few more) to the broadcloth panel. I just liked the texture and rustic look of it.

Thanks for stopping by.



'Tis the season

Hello and Welcome to another Fusion Card Challenge, where you can use the sketch or the photo or both. Here is what I did with it.



Sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. I used a circle die for the snowman head, added two buttons for the eyes, and cut a carrot for his nose.  I dusted on some white pigment ink to mimic a chalkboard as a final touch to this card. 

Please check out the Design Team’s creations for this challenge, where there’s a lot of really awesome inspiration!

Fusion Card Challenge

Sadly, this will be the last Fusion Card Challenge. The number of folks actually playing has dwindled down quite a bit and it just makes sense to end on a high note. Thank to all those who continued to play each month. See you out in blogland and on Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of you

Hello - playing in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of "thinking of you" - I had this one colored up already in my unused card bit bin just waiting for me to make it into a card.


The stamp and sentiment are from Altenew. I watercolored it with Tombow markers. Splattered it with white and black paint.

The silver plaid panel is from Sizzix Tim Holtz, I just used one of the plaid panels. Ironically, this has been sitting on my island since I got the dies, just waiting for me to put it to use.

With Sympathy

Hello. Playing in the Addicted to CAS code word challenge today and that is Sympathy. 


The left side vellum panel is done using a Rubbernecker leaf background stamp. I stamped it in white and heat embossed it on one side, then flipped the vellum over and stamped it in dark green ink.  The sentiment is from Altenew.

To get the vellum to stick on the cardstock, I used a micro cot sheet from Simon Says Stamp. Tied on some green grosgrain ribbon and attached this to a dark green card base.

Thanks for stopping by.

You are one of a kind

Hello all - playing in the sketch challenge over at The Paper Players today.  I did turn the sketch. 


Stamps are from Technique Tuesday. I believe the snowflake die is from MFT and I used silver glitter cardstock to cut it out.  Teal cardstock is from Concord & 9th. I used pawsitively ink in Ocean and Unicorn white pigment ink from Hero Arts to stamp the sentiment and the snowflakes. 

A snowflake embossing folder was used in the background and I adhered this all to a mid-tone gray card base.  Silver ribbon was added down the middle to match the snowflake. 

Thanks for stopping by.

With sympathy

Hello. Playing in the sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches today.


I used up a bit of my colored burlap from DCWV that have been in my stash for a while on this sympathy card. Leaf die is from Carta Bella. The sentiment is from the tiny words set from Simon Says Stamp.

Tied on a tiny string bow and called this one done. Love how clean and sharp it came out.
