CCC: August

Hello all! I’m here with your mid challenge reminder for our Christmas Craft Creations August challenge.

Here’s this month’s theme!

Now winter activities could be anything, skiing, skating, ice fishing, decorating a tree…..but what about Reindeer Games! 🙂

I had this really cute stamp set that I got for an online card class (which surprise, surprise, I’ve not done yet, and it was from last November!), and it’s from Close To My Heart. I thought it would be really fun to do a bit of a different take on the theme. I stamped out the stamp and sentiment using inks from my Tim Holtz Distress inks and some stampin up as well. The DP is from my stash and I die cut a couple of ovals to set off that image a little bit. I added a few iridescent crystals to finish it off.

Head on over to the blog to play along and win this month’s prize. (Just remember you need to include out monthly theme image as well as a link back to the blog to be entered to win).

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Dragonfly Dreams: July

It’s time for our July challenge at Dragonfly Dreams everyone! Our theme for the month is Indoor Activities/Hobbies.

I was at first stumped at what to do for this one, but then I realized that there is a lot that this could entail….board games, crafting, baking/cooking, watching movies or tv…lots really.

I chose to go with one of my son’s favorite activities…LEGOS! I’m sure a lot of moms can relate!

I have this Stampin Up set called Boys will Be Boys and it was perfect for this one.

I stamped the image in various directions quite a few times and then colored it with some copics just in some basic colors. It’s hard to se but some of them are also highlighted with some Glossy Accents (the ones that look a bit darker 😉 ). A perfect card for that boy in your life.

Make sure you drop by the blog and see the rest of the projects from the DT, they have a great variety for you!

CCC: April

Hey everyone! Have you stopped by the Christmas Craft Creations blog to play along with this month’s challenge? Our theme is Tartan/Plaid.

For my card I started with some buffalo plaid from Miss Kate Cuttables and paired it with some green polka dot paper also from MKC and some green foil cardstock. The ornament is from a Stampin Up punch that I cut out about 6x to give it some thickness and height and then added a sentiment from my stash. I hope this inspires you a little bit for your own project and that you will play along with us as well!

Hello all!

I’m here with today’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This is a great sketch if you like shaker cards or just doing an image on top of an image.

For my card I used a fun die set from LDRS Creative. I got this as part of my Crop & Create Cardmaking online class that I did this past weekend, hosted by Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. We also were given a fun matching stamp set as well. I used some paper from my stash to go with this. The background under the sentiment was ink blended with a variety of inks from Stampin Up, Kraftin Kimmie and Lawn Fawn.

I also added a couple of clear Nuevo dots to it.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to head over to the blog to play along and also to see the rest of the great creations from the DT!

I’ve got today’s new challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches for you. This one is designed by Debbie~

So I have been trying to work on some old online card classes that I’ve had sitting here from Scrapbook & Cards Today – the online Crop & Create ones. They pack a lot of punch into those weekends so there are a lot of classes!

I did a Lawn Fawn one, hosted by Jenn Shurkus in the October 2021 event. We got to play with some watercoloring and some fun stamps/dies and stencils from Lawn Fawn of course. These are the Frosties collection.

Now this isn’t the exact card that we made, as I altered it for this challenge, but I really like how it turned out. All those snowflakes and swirls are part of the set we got for the class. The unicorn is a different Lawn Fawn set called Winter Unicorn which I stamped and then colored with some matching Copics. The sentiment is from Stampin Up and then I just added a few enamel dots from my stash.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog so you can play along with us! You can also stop by the SCT blog to find out more about the Online Crop & Create classes (we have another one coming up next weekend and wooweeee..you should see the product we are going to be working with!) by going here.

October folks. It’s loud and proud and showing us that the final 3rd of the year is here! Yikes!

This is the sketch that we are working with this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I just felt like doing a Halloween card, even though I don’t really send them out that much!

The stamp is from Stampin Up and the paper is Echo Park. I did a little ink blending so that white wasn’t so stark.

Head on over to the blog and see the great DT projects for this week’s sketch!

Here we go with another great sketch for this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.


This one has some great elements and fun layers to play with.

I was in the mood to do a little Halloween today. So just using a variety of papers in my box and pairing it with a cute stamp set from Stampin Up and voila! I added a few enamel stars from my stash as well.

Be sure to stop by the blog and play along with us and don’t forget to leave some love for the rest of the DT.

Oldie but a Goodie

I’ve been trying to go back and work on some old classes that I purchased from @sctmagazine . This is from I believe the WCD online class from 2017 or 2018. We were creating a card using a @pagemaps sketch and a card created by Allison Okamitsu. @nicepeoplestamp .

Her example was a Christmas card but I decided to go with a birthday one using the Perfect Pairings stamp set from @stampinup along with their Gorgeous Grunge.

I used @ranger_ink distress inks in peacock feathers, twisted citron and picked raspberry for the watercolored background, as well as some @ginakdesigns black onyx ink. The stencil from Stampin Up was paired with some @heidiswapp metallic white texture paste and @studiokatia wedding bells sequins.

It’s been awhile since I did any mixed media cards and this one was super quick and easy to put together.

Entered into these challenges:

Crafter’s Castle: Anything Goes

A Bit More Time To Craft: Anything Goes

Die Cut Divas: Watercoloring

Creative Craft Cottage: No Patterned Paper

Love to Craft: Anything Goes

Looking Sharp: Dragonfly Dreams

Greetings one and all! It’s the first Sunday of the month so that means a new challenge at Dragonfly Dreams! Our theme is FOR THE BOYS! What a great one. If you are like me, you don’t have nearly enough masculine cards!

I knew I wanted to use this image and sentiment that was sent to me in a swap. I colored it with my copics and decided to use come paper from a 6×6 paper pack I picked up at the $$ store awhile ago that had all these green and leafy papers in it. I really like the green and blue together and I think these are perfect colors for a guy’s card.

The DT has some fabulous projects for you today to really get your mojo flowing so be sure to stop by the blog and leave them some love ok!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello you! Here I am with this week’s new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This is what I created! I bet you thought it was going to be another rainbow card didn’t you!

I started with that 3×4 journalling card as the inspiration for my card. I added two more card cut down to balance it out and then the coffee are from Stampin Up. I added a few sequins and some background paper from Photoplay Paper. I really love the colors on this!

C’mon over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and play along with us! Check out what the rest of the DT has put together for you as well.
