The Collected Crafty Collabs hop group is at it again, using those supplies we’ve squirrel away and forgotten about!!! The prompt this month is Christmas cards, which is easy enough… but using any texture paste, glitter paste, dimensional glaze, or mousse. Once the mojo started flowing, I had all sorts of ideas for some of […]

November Mid-Month DT Post for JDS

I’ve been MIA for a bit because my autoimmune has been flaring and typing is painful. Keeping this post as short as I can as a result, so please forgive me. Today’s ultra CAS card for the November challenge mid-month inspiration uses a small accessory image and sentiment from the Autumn of Splendor set from […]

CAS Watercolor – Merry Christmas

I unmounted all of my wood mount stamps in batches. Christmas stamps were the first to get done, cause I wanted to make sure they would get more use than they have sitting in a drawer collecting dust. Now my Christmas wood mounts are in stamp pockets, grouped by manufacturer when possible. Today’s card uses […]

CAS Christmas card with Close to My Heart

Today’s card is super quick and CAS. This card was made with the CTMH present stamp from the Jingle Borders stamp set and the sentiment from their Say It In Style set. I chose to go with non-traditional colors for this Christmas card for the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge as well as a couple […]

Merry Christmas Sharon! (and everyone else too!!!)

Today’s card is the one I sent my BFF.  She deserves something much more elaborate with layered die cuts, inking, embossing, coloring with Promarkers, or a special technique like Liquid Applique, Smooch, or at least Stickles.  Alas, time and mojo are both in limited supply.  What I lacked in technique I hopefully made up for […]

3D Reindeer

I’m pleased to announce that all my presents are wrapped, all the Christmas cards mailed, and all the cookies baked.  Whoo-hoo!  OK, I had help from my awesome hubby to get the last of the presents wrapped yesterday, but I did everything else myself.  With 2 whole days before Christmas with no lingering to-do list, […]

Sketch N Stash Challenge

I’ve been pumping out the Christmas cards this week!  Nothing like waiting for the last minute 😉  Today’s card is for the daughter of my best friend… the niece I never had. I was at a loss for a design, so it helped tremendously to use a sketch. I loved the current sketch from Sketch […]

Using Up the Stash challenges

Wow… 2 cards in 1 day.  I either found my mojo again or I just work better under pressure!  Pretty sure its the pressure… Ha!!!  I needed a quick Christmas card for my hairdresser, and this has her name all over it!  Following the sketch at Sketch and Stash, it came together fairly quick too. […]
