Twinkling

Here's what I did with a Unity Stamp Company stamp {Twinkling Joy}, some 3 Girl JAM distressed lace, UmWow Studio star confetti and a wee bit of Timeless Twine.  Doesn't that dog look like he's having SO much fun!


Hope you'll link up with us :)

Craftily yours,

Cascading Hearts

Hey everyone.  Today is my day on the Cut At Home blog!  For today's card and lay-out, I used a new Spellbinders Cascade Hearts die and a new Spellbinders Winter Owl d-Lite on my card:


I used that same cascading hearts die on my lay-out.


For the full recipe and details on these projects (and even a video), stop by the Cut At Home blog!

Ruff U

Happy Friday, Friends with Flair!  For today's post, I created a doggie card hoping to capture some of the cuteness of my dog.  Here's Chief (wearing his little life jacket at the boat)...



He's got such a fun and pretty mixture of black, grey and brow fur.  The Puppy Ruff stamp from Unity has floppy ears, and Chief has pointy ears, but I tried to capture his mixture of colors.  Well....sorta anyway :)


Have a lovely weekend!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Nerdy Girl

Happy Thursday, Peeps!  I'm up on the 3 Girl JAM blog today sharing a card that......wellllll......mostly fits into the 3 Girl JAM Challenge for Back-to-School or something with a writing instrument.  Hey, I used back-to-school paper!  LOL


I used paper from my stash (that I've had for years and years), some 3 Girl JAM green crinkle ribbon from the Spooky Bundle and some 3 Girl JAM lace from the Distressed Lace bundle.  The stamp set is from There She Goes.  You can get some of this beautiful ribbon for a HECK of a deal (10% off!! whoop, whoop!) using discount code KN10!  Stop by 3 Girl JAM ToDaY to check out the yummy goodness!

Thanks for stopping by today!

All Pink with a Sense of Wonder

Happy to be sharing with you a card that is up on the Timeless Twine Blog today.....and I think is pretty-in-pink!  Sometimes, I get in a mood to craft with one certain color.  Does that ever happen to you?

This card features Timeless Twine in Bubblegum Pink and a stamp from Unity Stamp Company {Sense of Wonder} that is colored with Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Markers.  The paper is Kneehighs from Basic Grey.  The lace is from 3 Girl JAM.




Thanks ever so much for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Presents, Presents!

We have a new (always optional) challenge at Christmas Card Challenges!  It's an inspiration photo of fun, brightly colored presents.  I decided to go with presents in more muted colors, but I love this huge stack of presents from this There She Goes stamp set.  The girl looks like she has a heck of a surprise in store, and it was so much fun to color and paper piece her together.  The paper is from Echo Park, Keepin Cozy.



Join us for the challenge!  Come on - you know you wanna!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Love this Christmouse!


So excited about all the fabulous inspiration happening at the Timeless Twine blog this week in our Lil' Inker Designs and Timeless Twine Cross Promotion!  So excited with the ADORABLE image sent to me by Lil' Inker Designs that I just HAD to make a second card!  Really, I HAD to!

Check out what I did with some Basic Grey Aspen Frost paper!



I used some gorgeous Timeless Twine in Key Lime Sorbet paired with the Lil Inker's Snow Mouse Stamps and the Stitched Scallop Border Die.  That FABULOUS doily is from Bella Creationz.  You should check out all the yummy goodness there.  That happy little mouse just makes me grin....I can't stop stamping him!

Jar Full of Christmas

I really love Christmas, don't you?!  Have you started your cards yet?  Only about 4 more months until Christmas.  Avoid the rush!!  Join us for our embossing challenge at Christmas Card Challenges.  The challenge is optional, but the fun is not!


The embossing folder I used is from Spellbinders (I think!), and the stamp is from Unity Stamp Company.

Craftily yours,
