Candy Cane Hues 2

Seriously - I told you I liked this color combo!  Here's another card with this collection:

This started out as my first card and then it wasn't turning out how I pictured it in my head - so here is my revised, clean and simple end product.  It uses the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set and Linen Thread tied around.  I cut out one inch squares for the centers and then punched out 1 1/4" of Very Vanilla to mat each color square.  Extremely easy and fun!

Candy Cane Hues

I almost didn't get this one done!  This is for the CMB challenge this week - Candy Cane Hues.


I'm definitely in Christmas mode so here is my take on it.

The base of the card is Soft Suede.  I used the Curly Cute Stamp set in Real Red on the Primrose Petals layer- I just love the elegance of those greetings.  The snowflake was made using the Big Shot die Snow Flurry.  I doubled up the large snowflake.  The medium snowflake is cut out of the Red glimmer paper and then a brights glimmer brad is used in the center.  Behind the snowflake is a piece of Sahara Sand that I embossed using the petals a plenty folder. Finally, I wrapped a strip of Vanilla seam binding around the middle. I really like this color combo - I know I say that every time - but I really do.  

Thanks for looking!

Mini Me

I love that my kids love to craft with me and just wanted to share some of their art work.  They have access to all my scraps and tons of paper that is non-SU.  I think they do an amazing job and I definitely see some future demonstrators!  Here is some of their artwork:

Feel free to leave a comment.  I'm sure they would love to hear what other people think of their creations!

Caffeine Tones

This week's Challenge at CMB is Caffeine Tones.  I absolutely love a neutral pallet!


  It was especially challenging for me as my right hand is in brace for tendinitis and I shouldn't be using it! Typing is a challenge as well!

Here is what I came up with:

The base is River Rock with a layer of Soft Suede that was embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder and then I rubbed the Soft Suede ink pad on top to give it a more textured look.  The circle is Sahara Sand and the element is also stamped in Sahara Sand.  Get Well (Delightful Dozen) is stamped in Early Espresso.  Also stamped in Early Espresso is the pocket watch onto River Rock paper.  The element and pocket watch are from the Clockworks stamp set.

Hopefully my hand heals quickly and I can get back to some more detailed stuff.  Thanks for looking!
