Poinsettias or Christmas Florals!


It's Sharon and this week I want to see Christmas florals! I love poinsettias (and full disclosure I rarely have luck keeping a real one alive for long!) so I was really excited about two new(ish) things in my stash to play with.

First up is a Clearly Besotted stamp set. I embossed a poinsettia on vellum. Love how that turned out! And gold with a kraft card base just makes me happy! The sentiment is from my go-to PTI set by the lovely Maile Belles. I channeled my "inner Dee" and splatted on a bit of gold mist. :)


 





Second up uses my new Tim Holtz poinsettia stencil. I tinted some paste with a variety of distress inks. Love how the final result perfectly matched PTI's new pink Lovely Lady! I threw lots of glitter on the paste before it dried. 


 

   
I can't wait to see what kind of Christmasy floral goodness the other Party-Ers create this week!

Thank you!

Hello!

We are back with another Crazy Card Party challenge and this week I would like to see those thank you cards.

I borrowed a stamp set from Regan and coloured up some gnomes to create these fun cards:



I can't wait to see what everyone else has created.

Colour it!


It's Sharon and I want to see everyone COLOUR! It can be markers, pencils, copics, watercolour, whatever. 

I have recently discovered the joy of adult colouring books. So I decided to colour up these PTI doodle feathers with my new Staedtler pencil crayons. I set them on a watercoloured background.


    


I can't wait to see what you colour this week!

Happy Fall Y'all!!

Hello everyone!  It's Kathryn here and this week it is my turn to set the challenge at our Crazy Card Party.  And I chose Thanksgiving or Fall... gee, I wonder how I came up with that?  Very creative, I know!

I recently purchased the Sheltering Tree stamp set from Stampin' Up so I used them on this project.  I really love them... I think I waited too long to purchase them!

Here are my cards...they are similar but with differing sentiments.  And the swing has been moved as well!!



Thanks for stopping by!  Link up your Thanksgiving or Autumn project here!

Paper Piecing

Hello!

It's Rosanne with this week's challenge and it's an older technique, paper piecing.

I used paper piecing to assemble this card for my daughter's birthday:


I hope you can take some time to play along and please link up your creation below.

Trees!


It's Sharon and I'd like to see anything to do with trees...actual trees, branches, leaves, wood grain....


    



I embossed the trunk and the leaves. I love the little red die cut bird! Trees just make me happy.



I can't wait to see what the other Party-Ers create this week for our tree theme!

Where will you TRAVEL next??

Good morning!!  It's my turn to set the challenge for this week and I chose a TRAVEL theme.  I took some pictures of the Abama Resort that Dave and I stayed at in the Canary Islands a few years ago.  As I was looking at my layouts, I decided that I need to go back and take some inspiration from my own layouts in order to complete future ones.

Here are a few shots!


 I'm really loving the single page with the pocket page format these days.  I've started working on wedding layouts and I am taking the same approach!



Thanks for stopping by!  Why don't you take some time to link up your travel project?  We'd love to see them all!
