Tag You're It! #78

Jessica Frost-Ballas is the featured artist on this week's Tag You're It! and here is her inspiration.
It' so soft and pretty in pink.

I heat embossed the stag from CP and inked the tag with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, going heavier around the head.  Instead of snowflakes I added some pink bling that has been in my stash forever.

How are you inspired by Jessica's tag?  The Design Team has some lovely ones to inspire you too. We'd love to see you in the gallery with one of your own.

Addicted to Stamps and More #269

Yes, stampers.  It's Clean and Simple time at Addicted to Stamps and More.  Here's my CAS card.
This darling little bunny making snow angels is one of Michele's from The Cat's Pajamas that I stamped when she was visiting.  I lightly colored him with Zigs and cut the panel with PTI Tipped Tops.  I started to use some glitter paper for the background but it wasn't the same color as the Bristol and that bothered me so I took another piece of Bristol and embossed it with the Fabric folder to make it look like snow drifts.

We'd love to see your clean and simple cards in the gallery.  You will definitely want to check out what the rest of the Design Team has done for some inspiration.

The Card Concept #82

What a beautiful wreath to have as our inspiration at The Card Concept.
I took the colors and made some SSS ornaments for the clean and layered category.
A NBUS embossing folder backs the ornaments, that have been stamped and clear embossed, and are hanging from silver thread.  The sentiment is silver embossed on one of them.

Things are getting busy.  I'm working on Christmas ornaments that I give to my grandkids each year.  I will see some of them during this holiday weekend I want them ready for them to take and hang on their tree.

I'm so glad you took time from your busy day to drop by.

25 Days of Christmas Tags - 9

I finally got a chance to make another tag for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  I was inspired by this tag from Karen.
Mine's a little simpler but it does incorporate plaid and holly.
The plaid is from C9 and the holly from PB, watercolored with Zigs.

Thanks for dropping by.


Seize the Birthday - Circles

I hope this card is circle-y enough for the team at Seize the Birthday.  If not, it will go without the topping.
This was actually a collaboration with Michele of I Card Everyone the last time she visited.  The papers are mine, the Altenew flower die and color choice are hers.  I added the frame and sentiment.  Not my usual fare but I love it's colorfulness.

I'm in cleaning mode this morning, preparing for visitors for Thanksgiving.  I just had to take a break and post this card.  I'm glad you took time out of your day to drop by.

CASology #275

If you've ever had a bottle tree you know their branches are stiff and rather sharp.  They also stick together if you put them in a shopping bag together. Just ask Michele about that experience.  ;)  That is why I chose them for my CASology card this week. Not the stick part, the sharp part.
A wonky rectangle popped up on fun foam frames three of them from C9.  They are also the author of the sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by.
