CC Designs September Release Preview Day #3


Hello!  It's Day 3 of the September Release Previews for CC Designs!  There are so many fabulous stamps coming your way and today I'm sharing Windy Day Cinnamon!  Isn't she just the cutest!!!  Look at that coat!  I want one for myself and that hat with the flower...too cute!!! 

 
For my card, I decided to create a wintery/Christmas card.  That's one of the things I love about this stamp.  She's so versatile.  You can use her for fall, Christmas, or winter.  I started with some fun, bright Christmas paper and colored my image to match.  Then I die cut her out using the CC Designs Dotted Rectangles Die Set and popped her up using some foam tape.  I also added some pleated ribbon, enamel dots and a fun little snowflake embellishment!

Saturated Canary- Happy Halloween

Hello! Today, I'm sharing an elegant Halloween card using one of the images from the Faces Pack at Saturated Canary.  I just love how beautiful this image is.  She reminds me of a Disney Princess! 

For this card, I chose some beautiful Halloween paper, colored my image to match and mounted it on several die cut layers of patterned paper.  Then I added some sparkly flowers, a glitter spider, and some rhinestone swirls.

 Unfortunately, this will be my last Saturated Canary post as a Design Team member.  As you know, Krista has decided the close the shop at the end of August. This means you only have a few more days to snatch up all those beautiful images before they're gone for good.  But, she is offering a subscription plan for a few new digi's over the next year.  Be sure to sign up soon! 
 
I have enjoyed every minute of being on this design team and I am so thankful to Krista for the opportunity!  I wish her all the best of luck and can't wait to see what the future holds for her!  Oh, and not to worry... I will still be creating Saturated Canary cards and posting them here on my blog from time to time so check back often!  :)

Hello!!! Today, I have a fun little Halloween card to share with you guys using the NEW CC Designs set called Halloween Cuties!  I chose the werewolf stamp, but this set is packed full of adorable images!!!

Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge - MAGIC - Witch Wanda


It's time for another Saturday Challenge at Krafin Kimmie and this time it's all about MAGIC! 

For my card, I used the fabulous Witch Wanda.  I wanted to give her a regal feeling so I found some gold embossed patterned paper and paper pieced her coat.  Then I colored her up with Copic markers, cut her out with my Scan N Cut 3, and added her to a fun little shaker card.  Inside, I used several different sizes of sequins along with some star confetti.  Then I topped it off with some punched flags, a glitter spider, and my sentiment!

Kraftin Kimmie Sneak Peek Day #3 Autumn Wishes

 
Hi there!  It's Day 3 of the August Kraftin Kimmie Sneak Peeks!!!  Today's set is just adorable!  This fun fall set is by artist, Cheryl Grant! Of course it includes our three fave kiddos, Lexi, Lucas and Lulu and they're having lots of fun at the fall fair! There's apples, cotton candy and furry friends!
 
The set has four main images, a fabulous banner that you can stamp anything you want in....OR hand letter a special sign PLUS five fabulous sentiments!

 It's called AUTUMN WISHES!



Isn't it just the cutest???  For my card, I wanted to create a county fair feeling so I decided to create a card that kind of resembled an award ribbon.  First, I chose some paper that had a country feel.  Then I stamped my image and colored him to match.  Next, I mounted him in middle with foam tape and placed it in the center of a paper doily.  I added some tweed ribbon, some punch flags at the bottom and the cute little sentiment.
