CASEing Myself

I've made two versions of a card using virtually the same ingredients and layout. Do you have a favorite? I like the Xmas one while my partner likes the fall one. I think it's because he likes everything to be lined up so is drawn to the geometric background. Bah, he's a man and what does he know? ;-P

Cards in Envy Favorite Holiday


This round at Cards in Envy we're wanting to see a card featuring your favorite holiday.  I LOVE Christmas without a doubt.  I also love Halloween but I definitely need more Christmas cards. Can't start too early on those!

I started by stamping the ME Frames and elves.  I hadn't originally planned to cut them out but I hated the background I had worked up using Distress Oxides (too much color, for once).  The snowflake paper reminds me of wallpaper, don't you think?

Notice how the picture frames don't quite line up on top.  Just like real life!

The Details:  Mama Elephant Little Elf Agenda and Little Agenda Frames, Altenew Happy Holidays, Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Christmas 6x6 Paper, Ranger Multi Medium Matte and Watering Can Embossing Powder, Versamark, Distress Oxide Black Soot, Copics

I'll Always Pick You


A little experiment today with layers, colors, and alignment.  Outside my comfort zone but liking it. I guess I would call this clean and layered.

I'm entering this in The Card Concept #99 Sunflower Serenade, TIME OUT #120 Colorful


The Details:  Right at Home Pumpkin Spice Season, Sugarpea Designs Heart Journal Card, Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black, Copics

Warm Memories


I thought about using this for a MnT for an upcoming crafty day but decided it didn't have enough customizability plus I don't think the gals especially like to sponge. Super cute in any case, however.  I especially love the squirrel on the right--adorable.

Alpacas for Mens


Sick of my alpacas yet?  Damn straight, you're not!  I went a bit more masculine with this card.  However, I can't resist a bit of the glam so glittered up the snowpeaks and scalloped snow edges tho you can't tell in the pic. I wish Photoshop had a glitter setting.  Oh, heck, probably does. LOL.

SOSS #120 - P is for Pink Halloween


We're all about the pink and all about the Halloween this fortnight at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  What a combo, huh?  Easier than you may think to do.

For my card, I created a lovely Autumnal background using Distress Oxides.  The skeleton was embossed on a piece of sponged cardstock that I had discarded from another project. The sentiment popped into my head the moment I saw this stamp.  What question is scarier than this one?  And I love the look at the owl's face:  I dare you to answer.  LOL!


The Details:  Oxford Impressions Danse Macabre, Distress Oxides, Versamark, Ranger Black and Gold embossing powder, Memento Tuxedo Black, P-touch label tape,
