Sorta Snowglobe?

Christmas Card Challenges has an optional challenge this week to be inspired by a beautiful picture of a snowman in a snowglobe.  I need a snowglobe stamp!  haha  I went ahead and "sorta" created a globe with an adorable snowman from There She Goes and some Bo Bunny Powder Mountain paper.



I added a button, some Timeless Twine, and some 3 Girl JAM lace ribbon.  Hope you'll link up with us :)

Craftily yours,

3 Girl JAM and Craftin' Desert Diva's Blog Hop


Welcome to the Craftin' Desert Divas and 3 Girl JAM Fall Blog Hop!

I love Fall!  Pretty leaves, cooler weather.....and hopefully, here in No California this year, some RAIN!   Fall hasn't hit here yet.  As I write this, it's over 95 degrees.....but I'm hoping it's coming!

If you have arrived from Tara's blog, you are in the right place.  I'm your second stop on this fabulous hop!

For my card, I used gold and white card stock with a leaf embossing folder to create this fun Fall card.  The stamp is SO cute.  I seriously love this sweet lil bear!  It's from the Craftin' Desert Diva's Hey Pumpkin Set!  I also used some 3 Girl JAM Diagonal Striped ribbon to embellish the card.  The bear is colored with Copic markers.  Then I used a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock and inked it up with all of the Fall colors in Distress Ink.  I stamped the leaf part of the bear stamp over and over and fussy cut the leaves.  I love how they turned out!



We have some fabulous prizes available to random commenters.
Prize One - 3 Girl JAM $20 Gift Certificate.  (Special note:  to celebrate this hop, 3 Girl JAM is offering 25% off in their store!  WoW!  Use HOP25 from October 11-25 for some GrEaT deals!)

Boo!

I'm up at the 3 Girl JAM blog today with a card that fits into this month's challenge.  3 Girl JAM is asking YOU to create something for Halloween!  Get your boo on!  As always, you have to include ribbon!

I got my boo on with some 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon in Iris (from the Spring Bundle) and Witch's Brew (from the Spooky Bundle).  The stamp is from Unity Stamp Company {A Tiny Witch} and the paper is from We R Memory Keepers {BeWitched}.


She is the cutest witch ever!

Layer-It-Up

Happy beginning of October, Christmas Card friends!  :)

I love dimension, don't you?!  This week, our optional challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is to layer-it-up (i.e. make a card with dimension)!  I used some papers from my scrap drawer (sorry, don't remember which brand it is) and a Unity Stamp Company stamp to create this:


Aren't they so cute?! For extra dimension, I added some Timeless Twine and some UmWow Studio confetti heart chip!

Craftily yours,
