Reverse Confetti SFYTT30

I'm playing along with Reverse Confetti SFYTT30 November sketch using Jolly Holiday stamps and dies.

Here is the sketch...

First I tried the sketch with some circles using Simon Says Stamp border and circle dies, colored the images with Copic markers and added some Stickles for some sparkle.

Then I used my Studio Calico triangle dies,  Martha Stewart glitter and American Crafts red glitter ribbon for this card.

I am on card 4 using this sketch and will post the rest when the sun comes out again.  Thanks for stopping by!

Make It Monday #227

I am playing along with Papertrey Ink this week for Make It Monday focal clusters challenge. I made some gratitude cards to send out next month using Leaf Prints and Spruce and Sprigs stamp sets and distress ink. I stamped on water color paper and then added a little water to some of the images.

Reverse Confetti September Sketch Challenge

So, Reverse Confetti had a sale and I picked up some stamps and I have to say that I LOVE.LOVE them! And now that I have some stamps, I might as well play along with their monthly sketch challenge. Who doesn't need more crafty inspiration, right?

Here is the sketch...

And here are the cards I made...

For both cards I used Basic Grey High Line paper, the border dies are from Simon Says Stamp, the ink is Flamingo Color Theory ink from Studio Calico and the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set and dies from  Reverse Confetti.

Happy Mail!

I received a box in the mail from Studio Calico today and if I made a video of me opening the package and posted it I could win a year subscription! I posted a little video on instagram and wanted to share photos of everything that was inside the box. (I did take a longer video, but it is too big to upload and I'm not going to try to figure that out right now.

I got a new style black handbook.  I love these things.

Next are these color theory month labels in black and blue


Some more color theory...this time in paint form...deja blue and blush crush

and these Lara Casey cards from this month make me happy...the colors are amazing!

and make stuff transparency pack from the month before last (Cirque Kit release).

and can you believe it...the Iris kit from this month. I adore that stamp set!

 and the Athena add on kit from last month (Odyssey Kit Release)

WOW! I know right...I scored big. Thank you so much Studio Calico for your generosity!

B is for

 border dies and I'm taking part in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge with a couple of cards.

I love how the border just adds something subtle while still making an impact.  Both cards were made from Studio Calico Lemon Lush papers and ephemera.  I left the tags blank so I could use the cards for whatever just by adding a little sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
