Inspired By.... bring in the new year

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired to create a new years card.

All of the paper (including the sparkly white) is from CTMH. The main image is from Unity. The sentiment is from PTI.  The background die is from Simon Says and the sentiment is MFT.

What are you doing to bring in the New Year? We will most likely be playing cards with my family as that is what we usually do.

Now come on over and play.

Inspired By....painted pine cones

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired to create this fun card using some new and old goodies.

I embossed the background with a CTMH folder and the snowflake dies are from CTMH as is the paper. The warm hugs die is from Reverse Confetti and the main image is from Unity and the Coffee Cup is from Joy Clair. I mounted the main image on foam squares.

Come on over and play.

Inspired By.... ladder decor

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired to create this clean and simple card. Check it out... no pattern paper :) 

The believe die is from Simon Says and the bell is from Sunny Studios. 

The frame is a CTMH die, which I mounted on foam strips for some dimension and interest. Those beautiful gems are from Studio Katia. 

Now check out what the design team have done and of course, play along.

Inspired By... Christmas hoops

The new Inspired By challenge is up and I was inspired by the colors and the theme to create a shaker Chrsitmas card using CTMH goodies.

The papers are new but the stamps and dies are from last year.

Inspired By.... pink Christmas

The new Inspired By challenge is up and I was inspired to ink up my new CTMH Gingerbread stamp and create a Christmas card even though it is my birthday and I love pink and thought I would be making a mostly pink card.

I used lots of new CTMH goodies, you should check out the site as there are so many fun new holiday stamps and papers to play with!

I stamped, embossed and cut out the house. I mounted it on foam squares and then embellished with some Stickles and a pearl.

I added some of the sequins from the Rose Gold mix to the lollipops for more interest. The background is embossed with last years embossing plate. 

Now we would love to see how you are inspired:

Inspired By... Christmas welcome

The new Inspired By challenge is up and it inspired me to pull together a few of my dies and check it out.... no pattern paper, LOL

The embossing folder is from CTMH and it worked perfect to pull out the brick in the photo. I then wanted to incorporated the colors and the deer.

The deer are from MFT. I got them last year and this is my first time using them. Hahaha. Does that happen to you?

I layered the deer in with the Snowflake border from Poppy Stamps. The Holly is from Reverse Confetti and finally the sentiment is from W Plus9

Now come on over and play :)

Good Times Quading

Sunday Funday... what did you do for fun today? I went out for a hike and I did some scrapping.

I used some older Elle's Studio to scrap these quading photos from last spring. 

We had just purchased our second quad so this was my first time out driving one on my own. We had a good day.

I love that my grand daughter fell asleep LOL

Inspired By....garlands

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired by the colors to create this fun sledding layout.

I used all CTMH goodies. The colors in the new Holly Jolly paper pack (and the Mix in) are just so pretty and though Christmas themed, I was able to pull off a sledding layout.

The snowflake dies are from last year. I cut the title with my Silhouette and the mitten stamp is a fun new stamp so be sure to check out my website

Now here is the photo, come play

The layout of my page was inspired by the Scraplift Sunday challenge at Paper Issues.

Inspired By.... blankets

The new Inspired By challenge is up and it has a lot of texture.... I do love texture.

I pulled out the colors and the stacked elements for my layout. It was a good way to use up some scraps and the colors were perfect for this photo that I have of my daughter. I used old and new CTMH goodies for this.

The title was cut with my Silhouette

Sweet, warm wishes

And I'm back with another card for the CLC Blog Hop. This one, I think is my favorite card that I have made so far.

All supplies are from CTMH (don't you LOVE that elf?!) (Mix in Paper Pack, Snowflake Embossing Folder, Holly Jolly card making kit) - except the mug and the sweet die.

In the stamp set the elf is supposed to hold a sign or some gifts. I cut out his little hands and adhered to this paper pieced mug from Sunny Studio Stamps. The mug was the perfect size so I had to use it. To add even more interest... I mounted the mug on a wiggler. So fun!

Warm Wishes

I'm back again with another card for the CLC Fall/Winter Blog Hop.

Once again, I am using the papers from the Holly Jolly Collection by CTMH

I used the CTMH snowflake embossing folder for the background and the CTMH snowflake die from last year (as always, my Christmas/winter cards have some sort of snowflake on them) 

The main image (Stampingbella) has been colored and paper pieced. Isn't it a cute image?!

I used this sketch:

I hope to post a few projects for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop. Here's at least one.

I used all CTMH goodies on this one. The snowflake die is from last year and the sentiment is from December SOTM, but all else is available now. 

I mounted the cups on foam circles for dimension. The paper is from the Holly Jolly collection and the Mix Ins paper pack
