Glittered Roses Day 7

Today's the last day of my week as a featured blogger at Glittered Roses!  I wanna thank Deirdre for this amazing opportunity to share my work with all of you!


One more big Christmas card to share.  I just love this one, and I especially love that the ornament and two of the layers were made out of SCRAPS!  That's such a good feeling when a pretty project is also a green project!

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!

What I'm Working On Wednesday - Fall Edition

I haven't done one of these in awhile.  Just because it's almost Thanksgiving doesn't mean I'm done with leaves and pumpkins and warm fall colors.  I'm trying to make a canvas and it's not going all that well, but here's a sneak peak.


Any guesses?  I hope to have this ready to share by Thursday.  Back to the craft room.  Laters!

Glittered Roses Day 6

Today I've got a custom-made card to share with you.  It was so fun to find just the right image to work with.


I spatter painted the backgrounds, you can't really tell in the photos.

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting!!!!  Laters!

NEW Challenge With The Stamping Chef - EASEL Cards!

Happy Hump Day!  the newest challenge at The Stamping Chef is Easel Cards!  They're super fun and deceptively easy to make.  They only LOOK hard!  Here's what I created using the Laylah digi.


This is what the card looks like when it's closed.


And here it is open.  I'm so happy with how this turned out, and I can't wait to make another card with this beautiful image.

Glittered Roses Day 5

Hi everyone!  Day five of my week with Glittered Roses, and today I've got a card that's NOT holiday-oriented.  Yay!  I know I can kinda go overboard with the seasonal crafts so I figured I'd try to branch out today.


I felt Princessy today!!  Isn't this so cute?  It's all sparkly but only the blue layers really show up in the photos.

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!

Glittered Roses Day 4

Happy Monday!  I've FINALLY got power again (I swear not having TV for twelve hours felt like being in a cave!) and I've got a fun fall card to share with you as part of my week as the featured artisan on Glittered Roses!


I love that you can use this card for any occasion during the fall season.  Plus, the detail and the varying colors in the pumpkin.  So different.


This card is available here in the shop.  Thanks so much for looking and have a great day!  Laters!

Glittered Roses Day 3

Happy Sunday!  Today's the third day of my week as a featured artisan with Glittered Roses, and I wanted to showcase a card that wasn't Christmasy.


The handmade flowers have a lot of detail, they're printed and there's glitter in their centers.


Thanks so much for looking everyone.  You can find this card and lots of others in my shop!  Have a wonderful rest of your weekend. I'll be back tomorrow with more creations.  Laters!

Fall Shadowbox With It's A Creative World!

It's no secret that I LOVE fall!  LOVE it. So I wanted to share this shadowbox I created. I hung it up starting in September and since it's a fall theme and not Halloween I can leave it on display until after Thanksgiving.  This is my project this month for It's A Creative World. It's a fun blog full of crafty inspiration, check it out!


You can see more pictures over at IACW.  Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting!  Laters!

I'm Featured On Glittered Roses!

Happy Friday!

This week I am the featured ARTISIAN on http://glitteredroses.com/
Glittered Roses creates and supports handmade. When you know the creator, you know the passion. When you know the passion you know the care it took. Promoting partners in such a diverse community rather it be a retailer that provides products or an individual who does the construction, highlighting the unique aspect of handmade businesses through social media is a great way to bring information forward. This week you will have an opportunity to take a look at my business as well as the website of Deirdre Smith who is the proud owner of Glittered Roses.

Deirdre's blog. which is also on FB, showcases crafters and artisans.  It's a really fun site, I hope you'll take the time to check her out.  If you're coming from Glittered Roses, welcome!

MY Vampire Can Beat YOUR Werewolf

Any day of the week, just try him!  It's no secret that I'm Team Edward and that I usually side with whoever doesn't grow twice their size and become covered in fur whenever they're angry or there's a full moon.  This card perfectly evokes my supernatural preference. I used one of the newest digis from The Stamping Chef, cleverly named Fangtasia!


I'm entering in a few challenges/linky parties...


Thanks so much for looking.  Laters!

Warm Wishes

Happy Tuesday crafters!  I'm pushing through the fog of a very strong head cold to share with you a wintery card I created with one of the newest digis from The Stamping Chef.  Winter Wishes is available now.  I love how she's Christmasy, but also wintery.  I went with a frosty theme this time around.
