Valentine Toaster Throwdown

 A cool winter vibe at the Color Throwdown Challenge this week…navy, gray, and white! 

I used The Greetery’s new “Hearts at Home” toaster dies and sentiment set for a fun Valentine card!

Made a background with the “Print Shop: Calico” background and stencil set and framed my scene with the “Frosted Frames” dies…so much fun! 

PS…sorry about sneaking in the little reddish heart! ðŸĪ·‍♀️😂

Snow Family Throwdown

This week at the Color Throwdown Challenge the colors are icy, wonderland perfection…ice blue, pink, and gold…

I had to use the whole Snow family from Sizzix/Tim Holtz for my card! “Twigs and Stump,” with their kids “Chilly and Freezy”…the fun Diecember Limited Edition set by Tim Holtz and Simon Says Stamp!

I framed their Christmas card photo pic with Papertrey Ink’s “Shape Shifters Square 3” dies and used a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps “Alpine Christmas.” The gingham background is made with The Greetery’s “Square Dance” stencils.

This color combination is SNOW much fun!  Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Wreaths Throwdown

Ohh a bit of a trick (but also a treat to try) with this week’s Color Throwdown …plum, blush, and sage!

I made a background with The Greetery’s “Print Shop: Calico” and some mini eucalyptus wreaths with “Mini Boxwood Wreath Stamp & Cut!”

I added a sentiment and some little floral elements from “Birthday Blooms” and “Blessed Blooms.” This card reminds me of 80’s proms and curtains 😂…but it will be fun to send in the spring! 

Thanks for stopping by! ❤️

Coneflower Throwdown

Love the sunny colors at Color Throwdown  this week…turquoise, yellow, green, and brown!

I used the amazing Honey Bee Stamps “Lovely Layers:: Coneflower” dies!  The background was made with The Greetery’s “Square Dance” stencils and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in “Uncharted Mariner” and “Peacock Feathers.” The sentiment is made with The Greetery’s “Sentiment Starter” dies and “Bold Alphabet” dies. I am on a never-ending quest to align die cut letters 🙄😂! They always look SO straight to me, until the glue dries 15 minutes later. It’s like they wiggle around behind my back ðŸĪŠ! 

Gorgeous colors this week CTD! Thanks for stopping by! ☀️

Fall Porch Fusion

This weekend craft therapy was in order, and I always turn to my favorite challenges for a brain getaway! This week at the Fusion Card Challenge was this lovely “Front Porch” inspiration photo!  

I loved the colors and flower mix! Used The Greetery’s “BotaniCuts “ Collection including “Sunflowers,” “Lavender,” and “Pussy Willows,” along with “”Let’s Have a Word: Autumn,” a mini hello from “Curio: Labels,”  and ivy from “Macra-made for You Fillers.” 

The background was made with the “Shiplap Builder” dies and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Weathered Wood, Milled Lavender, and Hickory Smoke, painted over with white gouache, and splattered up a bit. So fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by! 💛💜

Woodsy Arches Sketch

 This week I combined two challenges on one card…the Color Throwdown colors of aqua. Kraft, and cream

And Cecile’s beautiful sketch at 

I used The Greetery’s “Tartan Plaid Background” stencils over Kraft cardstock, along with “BotaniCuts: Toadstools” and “BotaniCuts: Mighty Oak,” a sentiment from “Hoop Wreath,” and some paint splattered “Essential Arches” from Ellen Hutson.

This card was heavy on the Kraft, so I thought that some moody mushrooms were in order. It was so much fun to distress those little arches and add blue to the leaves!

Thanks for stopping by!
