Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Reminder- Foxy

There is still time to join us in the Foxy Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge !  You have until November 25th at 8:00 AM CDT to be inspired and share your project!

Here's my take on the challenge. 

I didn't have any Foxy stamps or dies in my stash but I did come across paper with cute, little foxes! The top portion of the card is embossed with the Bead Board Embossing Folder from Taylored Expressions and I added gold, glitter tape across the center. 

The wreath is created with the Funky Wreath – All Seasons Stamp Set and the coordinating SugarCuts – Funky Wreath All Seasons. The background of the circle is watercolored and the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh

Thanks for stopping by! Stop by the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge for all the details.

Sugar Pea Designs SPD22 - Home for the Holidays

It’s time for the monthly theme challenge over the the Sugar Pea Designs Blog. This month the theme is Home for the Holidays

For the challenge I created three quick and easy tags that will dress up any package or gift bag. 

I used the Gift Tag – Sugar Cuts Die for the base of all three cards.

I colored one of the cute elves from the Merry Makers Stamp Set with Copic Markers and die cut the stamped image with the coordinating Merry Makers Sugar Cuts. The elf is layered on a circle cut with the Zig Zag Stitched Circles Sugar Cuts.

The sentiment strip and "to" are included in the Gift Tag – Sugar Cuts Die.

My second tag is stamped with the new Santa's Gift Tag Stamp Set with coordinates with the Gift Tag – Sugar Cuts Die.

On the last tag I stamped a sentiment from the Funky Wreath – Christmas Stamp Set in Delicate Golden Glitz Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. The holly leaves are cut with die in the SugarCuts – Funky Wreath Christmas.

Stop by the Sugar Pea Designs Blog for all the details and the list of designers sharing projects for the challenge!

Hi and thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was really busy including the celebration of my youngest daughter's birthday. 

Today I have a card to share created with some new products for Taylored Expressions

The mixer, spoon, and sentiment are stamped with the Life is a Kitchen Stamp Set and die cut with the coordinating Life is a Kitchen Dies. The sentiment is stamped in white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

The patterned paper is from the Simple Stories 6x6 pad - We are Family.

Pretty Pink Posh Product Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh November Product Release Blog Hop! I am SO excited be a Guest Designer for Pretty Pink Posh as Paulina releases her first stamp sets and coordinating dies!

For this blog hop you should have arrived her from Nicole Baez's Blog. I will list the participants of this hop towards the end of the post if you missed any stops. Make sure you visit all the blogs and leave a comment. There are two giveaways. The details are below.

I made three cards to share today. I just had so much fun playing with the new products!

My first card is created with the new Holiday Pals Stamp Set and the Holiday Pals Coordinating Dies. I started by creating my background by sponging distress ink on white card stock and misting the ink with water. 

The background is framed with the new Scallop Frames Dies, cut from a glitter card stock. I seriously love this frame set; it is so versatile!

The sweet images are colored with Copic Markers and then die cut with the  Holiday Pals Coordinating Dies, along with the tree in the background. I added a little fun flock the the hat and the bunny tail. The sentiment is from the Holiday Pals Stamp Set. 

Once the card was put together I added 4mm Clear Droplets to the background. So pretty!!

My second card is a shaker card created with the smaller die in the Scallop Frames Dies. The background on this card is also done with distress inks and then I stamped and embossed snowflakes with stamps in the Holiday Pals Stamp Set.

I stamped the trees and the gifts in Delicata Golden Glitz Ink, embossed with gold embossing powder, and colored with Copic Markers. I added a piece of acetate behind the frame and the stripes of foam tape to form the shaker.

Then I dropped in the beautiful sequins from the new 4mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix and the 6mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix. I added the branches to the top of the card. The sentiment is included in the Holiday Pals Stamp Set.

And lastly I created a card with place for a gift card with another new stamp set, the Winter Friends Stamp Set. I used the larger of the Scallop Frames Dies and the Pocket Border Die to form the pocket for the gift card.

I stamped the coffee cup and snowflakes with stamps in the Winter Friends Stamp Set on Kraft Card Stock with a white pigment ink and embossed with a white embossing powder and then added color with Copic Markers. The card is finished off with sequins from the 4mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix  and 6mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix
