Off To Dinner, Inaas Challenge #102

Good Morning!

Happy Valentine's Day!!  What are you doing today? Are you going out on a date? Having a nice dinner with loved ones? or Stay in for a little celebration?  Hubby & I decided to treat ourselves to go out for an early Lunch/Dinner.  I am really excited as we have not been out to dinner in a while but I think the weather may be bad here in Texas as I am sure where ever you like its been freezing cold as well. 

Since we are on talking about going out to dinner for Valentine's celebration over at International Art & Soul we are having our Inaas Challenge #102 - Off To Dinner hosted by Hazel our sweet design team member. What a fantastic them right?? I have to admit at first I didn't know what to do, but after looking over my stamps, it was super fun to decide what direction to go in. I went with a classic having wine at  dinner. But there are so many stamps you could use, tea stamps, recipe stamps, save the date, invitation to dinner stamps, all dressed up and the list can on. So I hope some of suggestions give
you some inspiration to join us for this fun theme.  CLick on the link here to join us Inaas - Ch. #102 Off To Dinner

Here is my card creation - 

For this card I used the stamp set by Repeat Impressions but I don't remember the name of the stamp set. I used 2 different paper pads as they went so well together, they are just was so pretty I couldn't resist. The fist one is one from Michael's Craft Store - Dark Florals by Craft Smith (Hot Buy) and the other one is Blue Fern paper - Timeless. I used black cs as my base.

Hearts With Love Slimline Card

 Hi everyone,

I hope you are well and having a great Sunday. Today's card is themed Hearts, so naturally I created a Valentine's Day card. I was given this KS Crafts slimline Die "With Love" as Happy Mail during Christmas time from my crafty friend Kimmy Murray.  I really think all the tiny hearts are so cute. lol  I also like the word dies that come with it. 

I created the card as an easel card so it has 3 panels and folds up nicely. The second photo below shows you how it folds out and then you set the top portion on the bottom panel, see the 1st photo. 

For this card I used my scraps from Simple Stories paper "Kissing Booth" I had a few sheets left and some chipboard ephemera and die cuts so I used those to embellish the from and bottom panel. Along with some silver glitter paper from Recollections. 

This card is for the International Art & Soul Challenge 101- Hearts.

That Winter Feeling

 Hi everyone,

I hope you all are staying safe, warm and healthy no matter where you are.  : D

I have another Wintery type of card for you and it's created with Stamperia Blue Land. I couldn't help it, lol, this paper is just so pretty.  I love the images of the little stickers I used for the card and they match the paper so well. The white deer on the tag so pretty, as it walks through the woods on a snowy day. The 3 circles are so full of wintery bliss with the night sky in one as the white horse runs through the snowy night sky, the second has glistening snowflakes falling and the last one has such a wonderful sparkle to catch the eye. 

Over at International Art & Soul we have a new challenge up and it's "Winter",  This is our Challenge 100 Winter theme. I hope you can join us. 

Most of everything to create this card I had in my stash. Supplies I used -

Stamperia paper collection - Blue Land

Recollection - silver glitter paper

Really Reasonable Ribbons - white ribbon (I don't remember the name)

InLoveArtShop - Merry Christmas Stickers pack 46 -

Happy Halloween with Retro Bows

 Hi all,

Sorry I am a little late posting my project for the new challenge at International Art & Soul

I was on a mini vacation with hubby and planned to have this post done before we returned but had to cut it short due to my father in-law not doing very well. So right now we are with family and will be here for a while. 

Our new challenge theme is - Halloween, so please join us and show us your fun and creative Halloween projects. 

For my project I created a few Halloween Bows with Retro Halloween Digital Paper. The digital paper is from (Click names to connect to store) Taylorcardmade4u, 9 Retro Digital Images &  Halloween Retro set 2 both of these are so awesome if you like the vintage Halloween images from the past. I also used some bag topper metal dies and Bow metal dies to create the bows, both of these dies are so easy to use. 

In creating these bows I used an old Halloween paper from Authentique for the bag toppers, bows and the background paper of the bows.  I decreased the size of Retro Halloween images so I could place them in the middle of each bow and fussy cut them. I them used glossy accents on top of each image to make it shiny. These were a give away prize for one lucky winner from my Halloween YouTube Hop I participated in a few weeks ago.

Challenges Entered:

Products Used:

Esculpido Bag Handle Dies 

6pcs/packs Bow metal cutting dies

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you get a chance to play along with for our fun Halloween Challenge at International Art & Soul.
