    Welcome. It is the first of July and time for another I Am Roses Challenge.  The theme is Vintage,  right up my alley.  I used lots of beautiful I Am Roses flowers along with a stamped image by Artistic Outpost. I made a heart shaped pouch to carry a love note or two.  Check out all the Design Team projects over at the challenge blog.

     I used my Paper Boy and Chalkboard Wisdom stamp plates  from Artistic Outpost to make this card. I made the tag some time ago but never used it on a project so I decided this was the time to put it to use. I stamped the sentiment as well as the stars and just layered them on top of each other. The background was made using a measuring tape embossing folder.

Rudolph Day

image

    Happy Tuesday! I got another Christmas card completed! I love this Rudolph Day. It is such a motivator to get ahead even if it is just a few projects.
   It helps being able to use up images on my desk. Who said Christmas cards have to have Santa on them??

And here is a Steampunk Christmas tag. Might look cute on a masculine gift.

And another card.

Hope you are enjoying the first week of spring.

        I have been inspired by my friend Hettie to play along with Rudolph Day every month. It is were you create Christmas related cards and such on the 25th of each month. It feels nice to get a head start.

Santa Card

image

    Hey everyone! I bettcha all thought I died. Its been about 2 weeks since my last post. I haven’t done much crafting (maybe 2 days) during that time so that is why I have been silent. I got some good crafty time in today so I will have some new things to share later this week.
    I love the Christmas sentiment on this card from the Chalkboard Christmas plate by Artistic Outpost. I layered some papers and added a tin pin. Easy but I like it.
   Don’t forget to check out the store at Artistic Outpost. They are having a 15% sale on all stamps through November 18th. To get the coupon code visit the AO Blog. Get started on your Christmas shopping.
   Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

A Harvest Card

image

    Happy Wednesday! October is almost over. I can’t believe it! Pretty soon I am going to have to start Christmas projects. Thank you for all of your kind comments and understanding while I have taken a bloggy/crafty break.

    Here is a card using Artistic Outpost stamp plate Hayride. I love that vine stamp. It is embossed in black. I added some stickled flowers to embellish the vine. I used spray and gesso in the background. The flourish stamp is from the Serenity stamp plate. Lastly, I sprayed and heated tulle around the edges until it crinkled and melted down.
   Have a great day! Thank you for coming by.

   Can you believe it? I had some crafty time this morning!! It has been a few weeks since I have been able to create due to sleep problems. Naps are awesome but have been taking up most of my free time!
   My card was inspired by Joanne Wardle’s Challenge over at Paper Artsy. Her first challenge was a card on which she used a die cut to make a window.  I made the front of the card and then used a circle die to cut out the center. I stamped my new Lynne Perrella stamp onto cardstock and colored it in. The sentiment is also from Paper Artsy.

    Thanks for stopping by and welcome to all my new followers. I hope things will start to pick up as I have more free time. Enjoy your weekend!
