Winter Critters


Happy Monday, crafty friends! Today I'm playing along with the most recent Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Animal Antics. I am so in love with these critter dies and winter accessories from Lawn Fawn! I was literally squealing with delight as I created each one of these gift card holders :)


They're all set to hold a little treat in the front and the back has a pocket for a gift card :)

They make me so happy!!!

Here's a look at each one:

Season's Greetings

Today I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 359.

Here's the sketch:


...and here's my take:


When I saw these Woodland Silhouette dies from Taylored Expressions I just had to have them! I especially love the way the silhouettes look die-cut from patterned paper :)

We frequently see moose in our mountainhood (and the occasional bear...thus my second card using the same sketch):


I hope you like my cards for today!

Crafty Hugs


Today I'm playing along with Time Out Challenge 120: Colourful.


I stamped out my own background using images from Crafty Life by Altenew. I LOVE this stamp set! So much fun! And so perfect for making cards for crafty friends :) This one is going in the mail to a friend whose birthday is coming up at the end of this month ;)


It's ten degrees and snowing here in the mountains today. Brrr. So cold but also so beautiful :) I'm about to bundle myself up to take Pepper out for a walk. She loves romping around in the snow and it makes my heart so happy watching her.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Happy Autumn

Playing along with two challenges today: Lawn Fawnatics and Freshly Made Sketches.






I've seen lots of fellow crafters stamping on die-cut letters, so I decided to give it a go :)


The die-cut letters are Cole's ABCs (Lawn Fawn), and they're stamped with the teeny solid leaves from an oldie but goodie, Harvest Season (Lawn Fawn).


I stamped a pattern from Interlocking Backdrops (Lawn Fawn) onto the kraft strip with VersaMark ink before adhering the die-cut letters. And that fabulous glitter paper is from Lawn Fawn's Autumn Sparkle Cardstock Collection---sooo sparkly in person---LOVE it!!!

I hope you like my card for today!

Truly Grateful

 
Happy World Card Making Day!!!

Today I'm playing along with Reverse Confetti's October Stock Your Stash Challenge. The theme for this month is "Thanksgiving and Friendship." I'm also linking this up to Simon Says Stamp's World Card Making Day Giveaway:



I used my current favorite Reverse Confetti stamp set and coordinating dies, Fall Foliage, and created two similar but slightly different cards. Here's a look at the first one:


I heat embossed a bunch of leaves and foliage in white and then water colored them with Zig Clean Color markers and a paintbrush. Then I die-cut them out and adhered them to my card base.

With the extra leaves and foliage I created a second version of this card:

 
I've been so inspired by the Fall color here in the mountains. Thought I'd share a few photos: (1) views during a hike on Ptarmigan Trail in Summit County, (2) aspen trees on our property, and (3) our sweet pup, Pepper.





Hope you're having a super fun day!!!

Eagle Birthday Card

Playing along with the most recent Fusion Card Challenge.

I used just the sketch for my card.


My nephew (who's at the Naval Academy) has a birthday coming up, and I thought these Land of the Free products from Altenew were a perfect fit for his card.


I love the sketched style of the eagle image. Makes it super easy to color :)

Thanks for visiting!

Have a fun weekend!!!
