12 Tags of 2016 - July

Hello, hello, hello! Today's project was inspired by this month's tag by Tim Holtz. I used one of my newest stamp sets by Mr Holtz, Crazy Dogs. I'm not sure why I didn't order the Mini Cats & Dogs set at the same time. I think I need to do some more shopping! Thanks for stopping by!

happy birdie

I know, it's been awhile. My sister lost her battle with cancer and it was heartbreaking. Today I decided that it was time to create something and it felt good.

I found this crazy bird in my stash all stamped, cut and colored. He already had the balloon string under his wing, you see where this is going? Ok so I grabbed a piece of vellum to make the balloon and then colored it with a distress marker. Next I cut a piece of mixed media cardstock and used the typo layering stencil, along with a colorful assortment of distress inks, to spell out happy. Spritzed on a little antique linen and adhered everything to an A2 card.

I'm entering this happy birdie card over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. They have a new challenge every Monday, this weeks theme is We Can See Clearly.

Throwback

Hello my pretties and welcome! It's Halloween and the trick or treaters will be knocking on my door soon so onto today's post. This weeks challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog is to choose a previous challenge so I picked the October 2013 "Spooky" challenge. I recently picked up the Tea Time Bigz Die and as your see I turned one of the cups into a caldron. Now my little witch can whip up some witches brew by the light of the Halloween moon. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween!

Welcome! Yes autumn is in the air and the creative options for this weeks challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog are endless.

Welcome! I can't believe that it's almost the end of September. The temps are suppose to drop to what we normally see here in the Twin Cities which makes me happy, the fall is my favorite time of year. Of course next month is Halloween and I've got some new stuff to create with. With that being said today's project was inspired by this month's tag by Tim Holtz but no butterflies were used, muahahaha! Thanks for stopping by!
