Cupcake Craft Challenge – Halloween!

Hey everyone & happy Monday! Its time for another Cupcake challenge and I’m back today with more Halloween fun!

I used the same Lawn Fawn stamp for this card as I did for my previous Halloween card because I think this raccoon is perfectly frightful ;-) Stuck with oranges and blacks again and used some of my much-loved, but neglected patterned papers.


Our lovely sponsor this week is Cupcake Cards and Crafts who are generously offering one lucky winner a paper collection of their choice – woo hoo! And, for October we have 2 monthly sponsors (yes, 2!). Polka Doodles are giving away one Pretty Sweet – Mini CD collection & Scrap Affair are giving away a 5 pack of Promarkers – great prizes so be sure to play along! And, don’t forget to check out all the great DT inspiration over at Cupcake!

Hope you have time to play along!

Wee Memories Challenge & Blog Hop!

Hello blog friends! It has been awhile since I’ve been here – sorry for the absence! I have been suffering with some serious pregnancy-related pelvis issues and the couch has been my bf over the last 2 weeks…on top of that we’re moving and life is just crazy! But, I digress…

Today I’m here with a new Wee Memories challenge & blog hop. The challenge this week is to use your favorite style – no problem, right?! We’re also celebrating World Card Making Day. We’re grateful to be joined by our fab sponsor Unity Stamp Co, offering a free stamp set to the winner!

I love CAS cards, paper-piecing, glossy accents, sewing & plain old stamping, so here is a card with all that!

You should have arrived here from Laurel Seabrook’s lovely blog and your next stop is the talented Stephanie. Don’t forget to check out our October guest desinger, Piali, who is sure to inspire on this crafty day! And, if you get lost along the way during the hop, head back to the Wee Memories blog for the complete list.

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you can get crafty on this very special day!

For this week’s challenge, we have a great sketch. Here is my take on the sketch (and also an opportunity to share some personal news — see sentiment below! Explains my general lack of craftiness the last few months and pre-occupation with things other than my blog and the blogosphere in general!).


And here is the great sketch:

Cupcake Craft Challenge 152 – Shabby Sparkle

Hey everyone! Happy Monday to all of you.

I am home after a great week at CHA at the Papertrey Ink Stamp Affaire – it was all incredible, but happy to be home relaxing in Ohio for a few days before heading back to Canton.

Its time for another Cupcake challenge this week – this time it is Shabby Sparkle. I don’t really do shabby very well, but added some lace and vintage touches to this otherwise simple card.

So, get out your shabby touches and some bling and play along! This week we are joined by Sassy Studio Designs, who are generously offering the winner 4 digital images of their choice.

And, the Icing on the cake sponsor is Polka Doodles, who are offering a selection of gorgeous Christmas stamps. And, don’t forget to check out the lovely DT creations over at the Cupcake blog!

Another quick summer card camp entry

Another very quick Summer Card Camp card entry for this week…

I attempted something a la Kristina with this one, but it didn’t turn out quite right – something is definitely missing I think, but can’t quite put my finger on what. Oh well, thought I would go ahead & post anyway — that PTI prize is amazing :-)

The card sketch is based off this sketch by Kristina:
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of your weekend!

The cutest tissue box that ever was…

I recently purchased some of the new Lawn Fawn stamp sets and have been very excited to ink up On the Mend – it is so cute! I have been wanting to do some rainbow color scheme cards lately, so thought I would ink up the tissue box and give it a try. (sorry for the bad picture!)

I chose this particular rainbow scheme based on the current Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World and the sketch is for the challenge at Taylored Expressions.
Thanks for stopping by and happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there (including my own!).

A clean & simple congrats

Hey everyone! Wednesday already?? I don’t know where time goes…

Just a quick card today that I made using some new Lawn Fawn stamps – I love the images in the Bon Voyage set – the clouds are so sweet. This sketch for this card is based on the current design over at Card Patterns.  I used some Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg papers — I still love this paper pad. And the plane is covered with glossy accents. I do feel like there is something missing on this card, but can’t really put my finger on what…any thoughts?!?

I was debating on entering this into the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol, but I’m away for 2 weeks in July and don’t think I can commit to the schedule (not that I’d expect to make it through round 1!). This card is also for the ‘Clean & Simple’ challenge at Lawnscapings and the ‘Anything Goes’ challenge at Wee Memories – 2 of my fave challenge sites – be sure to check them out! And here is the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by & hope you’re having a great week!
