Pink and Green Challenge!



Hi everyone! Happy New Year!  I've been busy crafting but this is my first blog post of the year and it feels good! I created this card for the Color Throwdown #424 Challenge and the color combo this week is awesome! I am also entering it into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: New Something!


I started by blending a pink and green background from Distress Inks onto Neenah Solar White card stock and them misted the whole thing with a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls for a pretty shine! I layered a fabulous black die cut cover onto the background and couldn't resist adding in some tiny hearts! It is getting close to Valentine's Day.......


I just love the new Kristina's Love die set and was so excited to use it! I kept to the color scheme and layered the pink over the green. I also added in an embossed sentiment from the coordinating stamp set!

Supplies Used:
Stampin' Up Melon Mambo embossing powder
Bazzil card stock

Snowman Buddies!


Hi everyone! A couple of chilly snowmen friends for the first day of Winter- complete with some glittery falling snow!  These adorable snowmen are perfect for the chilly weather we have been having!



I first watercolored a cool blue background with accents of purple before stenciling in some glittery falling snow.  The snowmen were also watercolored in the same shades along with the cheery Cardinals! Before adding in the die-cut snow hills, I embossed them for some fun texture and added in the tracks so they would move freely on the card!


I gave the snowmen some personality with a polka dotted scarf and a sequin topped hat and then added in a super sweet sentiment. A couple more shiny sequins were the final touch! I am wishing you all Happy Holidays ! I will see you after all of the festivities!

Christmas Delivery Mini!




Hi everyone! I have the cutest little scrapbook to share today! I bought this explosion box at Michael's recently and just knew I would create a Christmas mini with it! It looks so great with all of the bright colors and mixed patterns of the Carta Bella 'Christmas Delivery' paper collection!


There are a lot of pages inside the house and once closed it fits together very snugly so I couldn't do a ton of layering. But there was still enough room for cute decorations, frames and light embellishments! 


There were so many fun things in this paper collection that it was hard to choose what to put in! Each page measures around three and a half inches- so plenty of room for photos or Christmas mementos! 


I made sure to put in room for lots of pictures but some pages just feature cute embellishments! Of course I have to show you some of my favorite pages in the box!






I kept the outside of the house fairly simple by covering the sides with the adorable patterned paper from the collection. I dressed up the front with a couple of cute stickers, a fussy cut gift and the cutest delivery truck!  The roof was gussied up with some scalloped panels adorned with lots of glittery 'snow' and two shiny jingle bells! Such a sweet Christmas house!
