ATSM #472 - Christmas


It's Christmas in July for the latest Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #472

I used up a Brusho background that I was loathe to cover up but how could I showcase it but still make the sentiment visible?  My dusty Poppy Stamps Snowflake Oval Collage to the rescue!  Bonus that I was able to use a die from my stash that doesn't get nearly enough love.


This would be perfect for a make 'n' take with all sorts of possibilities to use behind the snowflake panel.  Hate that piece of designer paper but love the colors? World's ugliest watercolor experiment? Boom.  Cover it up!

Treat to Work With


I wanted to make a couple of cards for coworkers to thank them for helping put in some challenging grants recently. Our team is small but mighty skilled if I must say so myself.


I made the cards similar using largely the same products but different colors, etc. Check out how the change in stenciled background, designer paper color, and critters makes such a difference in look.  And notice I used the same Copics for both.



I'm entering the first card in Lawn Fawnatics #176 Fun with Food and the second in Paper Players #697 Summer Fun.

SOSS #252 - L for Lindsey


At the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers we're paying homage to our former teamie, Lindsey, lover of cats and all things purple.


As a fellow cat lover, I always think of cats when I think of Lindsey so featured a bunch of cats on my card.  Of course, it's snarky too.  Duh!

ATCAS #262 - Summer


Whee!  It's time for another Addicted to CAS Challenge.  This time the code word is summer.
 

What says summer more than a playground?  Now if this were my childhood all the slides were made of metal and summer was a time of burning your ass if you weren't careful--LOL.

CAS on Friday #287 - Watercoloring


For the latest CAS on Friday Challenge #287 we're asking for watercoloring.  

I haven't done much watercoloring lately but love it because it's so quick to color something.  I love the dreamy look too, don't you?

Tri Window Hugs


While I had the supplies out for my latest Addicted to Stamps & More card, I went ahead and made another tri-window card using Lawn Fawn Simply Celebrate sets.


As you can see I used the hugs portion of the tri-window die on the second card.  Eventually I'll use the stripey hugs too.  Waste not!

ATSM #471 - Make Your Mark


It's Make Your Mark time at the Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #471.  If you use a coloring medium of any sort, you can join in the fun!


I realized the Lawn Fawn Simply Celebrate sets would fit very well with the Mama Elephant Tri Window Cover Die so did a holiday mashup.


I stamped and colored up the Lawn Fawn images, then used a candy cane stripe paper with the Tri Window.  I sponged just a tiny bit of Salvaged Patina in the bottom two windows.  I used Red Stickles on Rudolph's nose to tie in with the Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Be Merry.
