Bear Hugs to You

The new Inspired By challenge is up and it is all about penguins.... of which I have no stamps LOL. I could have used a cut file but I decided to pull out the colors, cute animal and heart and came up with this.

All supplies are CTMH.

Now be sure to hop on over to the challenge and see what the others have created.

Leaves are falling autumn is calling

You know I love my pattern paper but sometimes I do love clean and simple too. I used a new CTMH stamp set and die for this simple card. The center panel is on foam strips for some dimension.

Pumpkin Everything

I am so excited to be a guest designer over at CLC (Coffee Loving Cardmakers) today. It has been awhile!
I have used the Pumpkin Spice collection from CTMH. The sentiment stamp is CTMH and the coffee cup is Honey Bee Stamps.

I might be a little excited that we are getting closer to fall. What about you?

I decided to create a second card using the same papers, another new CTMH stamp and some of the new Autumn Sequins from CTMH

Sweater Weather

I broke into some new CTMH stuff. I used the Pumpkin Spice pattern paper. The sweaters, leaves and cups were fussy cut from the pattern paper. I stamped the background with one of the new stamp sets We Love Fall. The sweaters and sentiment are mounted on foam circles. 

I don't know about you but I am really looking forward to some cooler weather. I am over the heat.

Back 2 School

I saw a challenge somewhere about school... now I can't find which one it was. Oh well it inspired me to break out the Smarty Pants collection from CTMH. I paired it with a stamp from SugarPea Designs. The ABC is an alphabet stamp set from CTMH

Lemon themed card set

I had fun with the Isabella papers from CTMH. 

First up I used an old CTMH stamp along with the 'sweet' die that I have used a lot!

Here I used a Reverse Confetti Die along with a PTI stamp set for a clean and simple card.

This is all CTMH except for the Chicken Wire die (PTI). I fussy cut the flower and lemons from the pattern paper. 

Finally another clean and simple card using stamps from Honey Bee and the sentiment is from CTMH.

Life is better with friends

I played along with the Fusion Card Challenge today using some CTMH Mix In papers. I stamped the little pawprints on the denim paper. The 'hi' die is from MFT and I think the tag die is from Reverse Confetti.

I flipped the sketch and I also incorporated the cat theme.

Girls Birthday Cards

I received some new CTMH goodies in the mail the other day so I had to play with them. I guess I'm building up my grand daughter's birthday card stash.... hopefully she'll be able to attend some this year.

All supplies are CTMH except the happy birthday die. 

On one of the cards I used this sketch:

Playing along with Inspired By Again!

I'm so excited to be playing along at Inspired By and soooo very grateful that Danni Reid has kept it going in my absence! 

In both inspiration photos I see blue and red and I decided I had better start on my Christmas cards so I dug into some Carta Bella papers that I thought were perfect.

Now pop on over and check out what the rest of the design team have created.
