Color My Heart Color dare Challenge #169

We have another elegant color combination at Color My Heart Color Dare!

I made a 5"x7" card using the Artfully Sent cartridge. I embossed the background panel with Floral Embossing Folder. The sentiment, also from Artfully Sent, was cut at 5 1/2". The cardstock that I used were Black and White Daisy. I added some pearls and foliage from my stash to add more texture.

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #167

We continue to celebrate the beauty of fall with this week's colors:

I made a tag using a Sizzix die, and added some Chocolate Baker's Twine. I stamped the White Daisy Cardstock using Goldrush and Chocolate. The images were from Hello, Life Pocket Scrapbooking (retired). I cut a piece of Kraft Cardstock and added some Woodgrain washi (retired) to embellish the tag. I will be using this as my bookmark since I have this ghetto habit of just grabbing random pieces of paper or objects and using them as bookmarks. lol!

Come visit us at Color My Heart Color Dare and join this week's challenge!

November Stamp Of The Month...Cheers 2016!

We are getting all ready for 2016 with November's Stamp Of The Month Theme. :-)
Cheers 2016 Can be yours for $5.00 with every $50.00 purchase, or you can get it for $17.95 at full price. Either way, this is a great stamp set to get if you're into planners or journaling!

I made a couple of cards to show an alternative use for the stamp set since we're a couple of months away from the New Year.

This would make a perfect graduation or a pick-me-up card. I used one of the 3"x4" cards from White Pines Picture My Life and stamped the sentiment with Cranberry Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, second generation style (meaning I stamped it first on a scrap piece of paper before stamping it on the card), and Glacier Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. The papers are from White Pines and Zoe. I added a Red Shimmer Trim, and a sticker from Base and Bling Holiday Style Sheet (for who could resist an ice-skating polar bear?) and some Sequins Silver Assortment.

The second card is more simple, because I think the message itself is profound. The card once again is from White Pines Picture My Life, and I made a flag using New England Ivy cardstock. The background paper is from Zoe, tied with a Glacier Extra Thick Twine. I used Glacier Exclusive Inks for the sentiment and the stars. I added some White Enamel Stars on the left side of the card to balance the look.

Thank you for dropping by and happy crafting!
