Campfire Day

Happy Campfire Day!  Who knew this was a thing?  Apparently our host at Crazy4Challenges did as we are asked to create a campfire themed card. Here's mine:

Seriously, how adorable is that fox?!?  The supplies I used are from Elizabeth Craft Designs, and I used distress ink to color. Thanks for stopping by!

Fairy Wishes

Woot, woot! New release over at Elizabeth Craft Designs!

For these cards, I used the NEW Fairy 1 and Once Upon a Time Accessories dies. I also used the NEW Organic Triangles Background die. These new items aren't quite yet on the website, but they will be soon!  Eek!

Happy Collage

Today's challenge at Crazy4Challenges is about the collage!  Here's my inspiration for the challenge:

It may be hard to tell, but the whole front panel is a really pretty onion skin paper. I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the paper and then tore it up and adhered it back down in a collage kind of way. Here's a close-up:

The stamp was stamped onto the collage and again on another piece of onion skin paper. I watercolored that one and fussy cut it. The inks are either Distress Inks or Distress Oxides.

I love how the card turned out. The supplies from Elizabeth Craft Designs are below. I hope you will join us this week at Crazy4Challenges!

Birthday - Inspired by a Sketch

Today's card was inspired by the following sketch for the challenge at Crazy4Challenges:

And here's what I made:

It's "close" - right?  The word "wishes" just needed to be lower.  Almost like it did it on its own!  LOL  To create the "birthday" part, I masked out one of the words when stamping.

I hope you join in the challenge and get closer to the sketch! The paper I used is from Heartfelt Creations. The products from Elizabeth Craft Designs are linked up below.

Thank you for stopping by!

Simple Joys

Today is my last post as a design team member (for now) at Dare 2B Artzy.  This is an amazing company, and I've loved being on their team, but life has been too hectic...time to slow down just a bit.  Hopefully, some day, when things are calmer, I can make my way back.

Anyway, here's what I created using the Holiday Magic Stamps and the Holly & Plaid Paper Pack.

Thanks for stopping by!
