Thrilled For You

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted To CAS with Code Word DIAMOND.  I have a dear friend who has met the love of her life, and I have a feeling there is a wedding in her not-too-distant future. I was inspired by her good fortune to make a card using Paper Smooches "polishes" dies using silver sparkle paper for the ring band, and a rhinestone sticker for the "diamond".  I have a lot of beautiful lace in my stash, so I decided to add some to the wrist for this special occasion.

ATCAS Challenge #146 is hosted by ATCAS Design Team Member, Ceal. Don't forget, as always, Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, and Kylie is generously awarding the winner  a $20.00 gift

Fa La La La La

The September Challenge is up and running at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge. The theme is Anything Goes, and the twist is: tree. I decided to make a shaker with the Hero Arts Fir Tree Infinity Dies. I backed the aperture with patterned paper with the sheet music for "Oh Christmas Tree" for an added affect. The sentiment is from Happy Little Stapers

Happy Halloween

Creative With Stamps Challenge #30 is up and running with the theme of "PUMPKIN". Fall is my favorite season, and I love it when the fall colors kick in in art, fashion, food...

I decided on a Halloween theme. To create my card, I chose to use a retired set from PTI - Tiny Treats: Halloween. The set includes the tag stamp, which I heat embossed in black, then added some orange in some of the dots with Colpics. I die cut the center, heat embossed the pumpkin and colored it with Copics. I stamped the whole image again and cut out the sentiment strip, colored it and adhered it to the circle. I added some ribbon for the final touch.

Please head on over to the Creative With Stamps Blogcheck out what the Design Team has come up with to inspire you, and share your creation in the gallery.
Happy crafting!
