Monochromatic Christmas

 Good Day Everyone, 

Hope you are having a great weekend. Here in N. Texas we had some storms but we managed to get through. Although I am praying for those who were affected by the tornados. But this weekend is nice and sunny with a bit of coolness in the air. 

With that being said you know some of us around the world are already feeling winter has come and soon Christmas will be upon us. Today's card is for a Christmas challenge over at Intaas challenge #146 Christmas. So come check out all the wonderful Christmas projects over at International Art & Soul and pop yours into the challenge. 

For my Christmas card I used the Anna Griffin Snowflake card kit along with Spellbinders poinsettia die that I had in my stash. I combined this card with silver and pinks for monochromatic challenge YT Hop that I am participating in. I also am popping a photo of the Wreath I created using red in monochromatic colors. 

For this wreath I used white garland I had in my stash from last Christmas. 
I made paper poinsettias using my spellbinders. If you want to see more details I have
a YouTube Share. 

Thank you all for joining me. Please go check out what my teamies created. INTAAS #146 Christmas Card

Happy Fall Y'all

 Hi everyone, 

Hope you are having a great week. Today starts the new challenge over at International Art & Soul, Challenge #145 Happy Fall Y'all.  

For this challenge I created a cute little Scarecrow Card using Jaded Blossoms Scarecrow Kisses Stamp Set. I also created this card using the sketch from Just Add Ink #626. 

Here is my take on the sketch -

I used distressed inks for the background 
and used my Spectrum Noir colored pencils to 
color in this adorable little scarecrow. 

I hope you get to join our Fall Challenge over at Intaas Ch. 145 Happy Fall Y'all

Have a great day.

Furry Friends Theater Card

Good Day everyone,

I hope you are all doing well.  Today I share a card that I created for a crafty friend who lost her beloved furbaby, Paddington. He is such a sweetheart, he crossed over to the rainbow bridge about a week ago. It is so hard when we lose our furbabies, they are our children and such a huge part of our lives. 
This card is for the Furry Friends Challenge #118 at International Art and Soul. I hope you get a chance to join in the fun. I love interactive cards they are so fun for any occasion. I also created a birthday one as well, both photos are below. 
I will have the tutorial up on YouTube Channel soon. 

This card I created for my mom's birthday.

Holidays Here and Aboard - Christmas

 Good Morning everybody,

Today over at International Art & Soul we have a new challenge up - Holidays Here & Aboard Ch. #111.

We would be so happy for you to join us for this fun challenge for any project you create. You can submit any Holiday crafty project cards, altered items, canvases, scrapbook pages or anything else you would like to share with us. 

So what's been going on?? WELL, I have collaborated with Kimmy Murray in the first of many design paper collections and we are so happy to bring to you our first paper collection designed by Salty Beach Scrapper Designs. This is such a beautiful collection. Right now for the first collection, Like Bees to Honey, you can find on etsy -

The card I created for the challenge #111 - Holidays Here and Aboard is a Christmas card using paper designed by Salty Beach Scrapper which will be out in July 2021. The name of the paper collection is The Beauty of Christmas. So this is a sneak peek of the a few of the papers and cut aparts within the collection. 

My card was inspired by a card I seen on pinterest.
I thought it was a really cool design. However, I added a few items to it that 
were not shown in the photo on pinterest.
I adhered the design paper to the cardstock and then cut out the circle. 
I fussy cut the tree, bells, and flowers with candle shown on the inside. 

In this photo it shows the circle that was cut out attached to the arm and it has a magnet so it
closes easily. I also fussy cut the lantern and I placed some flowers beneath the clock 
to make it look 3D.

Once you open the arm I added the sentiment inside and another wreath sentiment inside the circle.
I think it looks so pretty.
