Merry & Bright Be Inspired Challenge

Happy Friday!!!  This is my second post of the day, so make sure you scroll down to see an owl turkey... oh you read that right, owl turkey 'nough said hehehehe!

Now onto this post!  It's time to share some new inspiration for the Be Inspired Challenge, always hosted by the amazing Alley Way Stamps, woot woot!!!  Remember you are playing for a chance to win stamps and be a Guest Designer, so make sure you link up with us!  Don't have any Alley Way Stamp Sets?  That's ok, Alison offers freebies for everyone to have an equal chance!

Check out what I've created this time...

For this card I started by stamping my "box border" by using the Tag a Longs Stamp Set and coloring them in with various copics.  I then stamped the sleigh and little penguin guy from the Jolly Holiday Stamp Set and colored them in too.  Next the trees were stamped on separate cardstock, colored and fussy cut out before adhering to the card.  Last came the sentiment from the All Wrapped up set and some snowflakes!

I am adding this little guy into the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps: Make Your Mark Challenge
Paper Shelter: A Card for a Child

Have you ever seen an Owl Turkey?

I have!!!  And you are about to see one too! hehehehe!  This adorable little image is from one of the newer Stamp Sets Called Fall Owls, and it has some pretty hilarious little guys getting ready to spread Thanksgiving cheer...

And when I saw that super cute little guy at the bottom there I was like... " An Owl Turkey!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!"  and so he is shinning brightly on this little card that I also happen to be sharing on the Blog as well!

Full details on how this card came together can be found on their blog, but no fancy shading just good ol' coloring and fussy cutting was all this little guy needed! :)

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

A little post

Don't forget to enter my thankful giveaway below!

Today you will find a quick and easy little card up on the DCWV blog that I have created using the Fall and Halloween Stack from last year...

The top of the card was created using a Pretty Pink Posh Stitches die at angles, and then layered.  I'm super excited to be working on the new DCWV team, and my first real day begins in December, so be on the look out for lots of new goodies to share with them!

Love a Good Pun...

Hello!  Happy Hump day to all of you!  Sometimes when making card I just can't help but smile or giggle as I amuse myself with often a good pun... The Alley Way Stamps usually have some super cute ones and today I've busted one out from their new Tea Par-tea set.

I've also added a fun interactive element to this card as it will wobble when you touch the little teapot!  hehehe!  Yep... I'm just full of entertainment today folks! : )  Anywho, to create this card I started by stamping the teapot onto separate cardstock and coloring with various copics.  Next I added some polka dots with a white gel pen.  I then fussy cut and added glossy accents for a "porcelain finish".  I created a fun little border on my card base with the small tulip image in this stamp set and colored these in with copics as well.  Once the tea pot was dry I adhered it with an adhesive wobble (not sure of their technical term, sorry!), added the sentiment and some pearls.

I am adding this little baby into the Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes Challenge

Altenew November Challenge

Hello!!!  It is a super cold day here in Ohio and all of our snow is frozen to the ground... thank goodness for heating! (even if I probably don't want to see the bill hehehehe!)  Today I am popping in to share my take on the latest Altenew Challenge:

And here is what I created...

I really drew a lot from the colors in the inspirational photo, and I loved the purple and pink flowers.  I also wanted to use a muted gold accent as I felt the photo showed almost a vintage gold look.  It was fun to really play on darker cardstock as I don't tend to use them as my base very often, but I just might have to put it into rotation. 

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Altenew (Hennah Elements, Sentiments & Quotes)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Versamark
Embossing Powders: Fine Detailed White ( and Vintage Gold Enamel (Piccolo)
Color Medium: Various Copics
Mister Huey in White
Enamel Dots: MME

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day!
Happy Crafting!
