Puppy Love

This is another project using the KTMH special. It is a 9x9 memory box. I'm very proud of it. Upper left detail.

This is the bottom right corner detail.

This is the top of my memory box. I will keep my door prizes/give aways in it for parties & workshops.

Ohh, this is Brekyn's new baby, Pedro with my baby, Jose. Aren't they precious?!?


I Don't Mop!

Wow! I really love the new CTMH stamps featured in the new Idea Book! Isn't this chicky chick too cute! I would normally use brighter colors, but I love the way she blends with the new Emporium paper. This one is super simple and will be one of the cards we make on Friday. The stamp set is Ms. On the Go & the inside says... not to MOP! So very ME! Below is more artwork from CTMH using the Emporium paper. The colors are Buttercup, Cocoa, Crystal Blue & Sweet Leaf. Very soothing I think.
I probably won't post anymore this week for the Open House. You'll just have to come see it in person!

Tres Hearts

Another Sneak Peek:
I used the Key to My Heart paper & stamps. They are this months special from CTMH. You can read more about this special offer a few posts down. I also used the new StaysOn Ink in Timber Brown. This is the first time for CTMH to offer StaysOn in a color other than Black. I know the flourish looks black on this scan, but it is really brown. Other colors are Creme Brulee, Juniper, and Sorbet. I really like this vintage look.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mistress of Christmas

Oh, this card gave me fits! I just couldn't get it to act like I wanted it to. Still not sure I like it. I used Penny Black's Christmas Fairy stamp, the Paper Studio's Christmas Tree Polka & ric rac ribbon, CB Ornaments Embossing Folder and some crystal flower brads. I also used my CTMH CS & ink, and my Copic Markers. The sketch is from iheart2stamp.com Saturday Sketch for You to Try.
Hope you like it!
Please leave a comment if ya do.

Christmas Cardinals

Still working on Christmas cards. I'm not making much progress. UGG! :O This is the inside of the first card. The card is 6x6.
This one is 5x7.

I wanted to get away from the whimsical cards I have been making lately and try something a little more classy. I really like this stamp set from CTMH called Take Flight. I used Basic Grey's Wassail paper and the 2 red buttons are from this coordinating group, also. I really like the way the black looks as an accent color.
I love cardinals. They remind me of both of my grandmothers, but mostly of Mama Dippy who died about 13 years ago. She loved cardinals and hummingbirds. I always got her a wild bird calendar for Christmas. I really MISS her!

Just one card for tonight. Brek had a BB game this evening so I didn't have much time for card making. This image is another Penny Black stamp! It is called "Kiss Me". I cut her dress from some patterned paper I had. I really piled the Stickles on and added some clear glitter on the fur of her dress. Again, I used the white glitter paper. I really like the look of it for Christmas and winter. I used 2 different snowflake punches with this same paper.

Have a great Day!
