A reason for the season

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are having a great holiday weekend. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and much food was eaten. Friday I did some Black Friday shopping with my favorite teenager and today I had a great day helping people create adorable gift packaging for the holidays.
I have a card to share with you today. This card was created for the SSInk Challenge and it is my first time participating with them. I love the mystery challenge we were given for the week. 

My card:

This stamp set is so easy to use and in my opinion has the best sentiments ever! I stamped the outline in the Stazon ink, stamped the flowers with Real Red, the petals with Pear Pizaaz and then blended each of those colors with a blender pen. I love the soft, watercolor look this set has. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today. You can subscribe to my blog on the right and never miss another post. You can also leave me some blog lovin’ in the form of a comment and let me know what you think of my card.

October D’s Stamping Team USA Give Thanks

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be a guest hopper this month for Darla Robert’s team blog hop. Thank you so much for having me!
Today we are giving thanks for the many blessing we have in our life. I know for my family, we have so much to Give Thanks for.
For this hop, I really wanted to make a card that was quick and easy but also fun. I found these cute little punch art pumpkins on Pinterest (where else!) and knew that I needed to make some while it was still Fall. I found that they can be made with either an oval or a circle punch and go together in a snap. I paired them with the gorgeous plaid paper from the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper so they can really stand out as the focual point of the card. I made pumpkins in three differenct sizes just to show how easy ther are. I used two on my card and then created a cute little treat with the last one.

Now, it’s time to hop on over to Kay’s blog and see what she has made this month. Thanks so much for hopping by. Please leave me some love in the form of a coment andy You can subscribe to my blog so that you never miss a post

ICS Blog Hop Fall for All

Welcome back hoppers for another month of ideas and inspiration. If you have arrived from Deb’s Blog, I am so glad you stopped by. Wasn’t her project just awesome! If this is your first stop on the hop – Welcome! Just follow the links at the end of each post so you are sure to not miss a thing!
 This month we are all focusing on fall. While fall is not my favorite season, I do love the gorgeous colors of the trees, all things pumpkin and the Thanksgiving holiday.
I also love this fall themed Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog. It made creating this card so quick and easy. Lots of layers really help the texture and then the fussy cut leaves and acorn were the finishing touches. I wanted the paper to be the star of the show so this card is actually embellishment free – not something I usually do.
Be sure to check back on Friday for the coordinating projects that I did with this card. They are so much fun and you won’t want to miss them!
Now, it’s time to hop on over to Tina’s Blog and see what she has in store for us. Please leave me some love in the form of a comment and let me know what you think of my card. I would love for you to subscribe to my blog and never miss a post!

ICS Blog Hop – Spring is in the Air

Another month, another blog hop!! Welcome to everyone who has hopped here from Darla and Nancy’s blog. Didn’t you just love their projects.
This time for the ICS Blog Hop spring is in the air.
Are you enjoying our spring items from the Occasions Catalog? I am having so much fun with the Irrisestably Yours DSP. I think this paper is so versatile and can be used on any card for just about any occasion.
My card for today Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black and Whisper White. I love the clean look of a black and white card with just one color. The background was sponged with ink and then wiped clean so that the embossed look comes through. The flower image and sentiment are from the set Painted Blooms and the butterfly was taken from Kinda Eclectic stamp set. A small piece of chevron ribbon and a few pearls finish the card off.  
Now, it’s time to hop over to Joni’s blog and see what she has in store for us. Thank you for Hopping by. Please leave me a little love in the comments and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss a post!

ICS Blog Hop – Tis The Season

Hello everyone and welcome to the monthly Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! 
You may have arrived from Deb’s blog, or are just starting the hop here. Either way I am so glad you are here!

It is amazing how fast the Christmas season came upon us and now we are more than 1/2 way through it. If you are like me, you might be looking for some cute gift packaging ideas.  That is what I have to share with you today. My project was created using the Take Out Boxes, All is Calm DSP, some ribbon, a few tags and some pretty, pretty silver accents. 

The  ribbon and tags is designed to slide off the box easily and remain intact and beautiful! The belly band can then be gently removed and the box opened. I love these contemporary colors of blues, greens and silver at Christmas time. I hope you enjoy this project and it inspires you to create unique gift packaging this holiday season.

Now, you get to hop on over to Olivia’s blog and see what she has in store for you. I am sure it is going to be adorable! Thank you so much for stopping by. Be sure to leave me a note telling me what you thought of my project and please subscribe to my blog so that you never miss a post!
