Spooky Cat, Not Spooky at All!

  This is another card we did in my Holiday Card Class this month. I love the cat punch, and check out the new Black Crochet Trim. This is a pretty easy card to put together. We have a Black card base, with a 2 1/2″ piece of the Spooky Night Designer Paper, (don’t forget to add your Vintage Crochet Trim) on the left and a 1 3/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock that was…

Halloween Window Box

Isn’t this a fun box? This is one of the projects Patty brought for us to do a couple of weeks ago. We used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper for the box, sponged a Metallic Foil Doily black, the scallop is the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (layering Circles Framelits) & the sentiment is from the Spooky Cat stamp set. I have to tell on myself. I totally put adhesive on all the flaps and…

To think of you is to smile, SUO Challenge, Watercolor Fun

Woohoo, love the theme for this weeks Challenge. You know, you can play along too: http://suochallenges.com/ My inspiration for this card came from Kimberly Van Diepen. I love ALL her stuff.  This was perfect for an “out of the box” kind of card and different than how you would normally use this set.  You will notice that I didn’t center the top layer onto the card base. I wanted part of another Metallic Doily to…

Watercoloring Lifting Using the Swirly Bird Stamp Set

Saturday is my oldest granddaughter’s birthday. She will be 11 years old. Not sure when that happened…….That really makes me feel old! So, keeping with the Watercoloring Lifting technique, I decided to use the Swirly Birds Stamp set. So I was thinking circles and this set works out perfectly. I used Mint Macaron and Dapper Denim, and added the color at an angle. I shared the video from Brandi (at Stampin’ Up!) with you yesterday…

Time for the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge

The challenge is “Cute & Cuddly”. I thought the Pretty Kitty was purrfect, (get it? LOL). You can play along too: http://suochallenges.com/ This card is for my niece who has a birthday next week. I used my Aqua Painter to color in the kitty and flowers onto Shimmery White cardstock. Did you know Shimmery White cardstock is the next best thing to Water Color Paper? It doesn’t pill like Whisper White and its shimmery. The…
