Christmas greeting cards – Santa’s belts

Michaels stores carry a brand called Creatology. The packages come with plenty of pieces in them and they are usually cute and fun. I imagine teachers love to pick them up for class crafting. Anyway, this year I got a package of the sparkly Santa belts: These fabric stickers were so adorable and versatile that…

CASology 206 – art

I read this week (regarding writing) that one word prompts were ineffective and not challenging. Be it writing or paper crafting, I beg to differ. The cue card this week at CASology is art: Here is my interpretation: I was happy to use one of my newly acquired Darice embossing folders! The stars are Heidi…

S.I.P. 56 -Christmas In July

The Hallowe’en decorations are slowly starting to fill the shelves of our favourite stores, but Stamp Ink Paper took it one step further this week: I opened up my Christmas supply box and got to work: I used some Hero Arts stamps for the ornament and stamped sentiments. Beside it is a jewel die cut…

S.I.P. 53 – Case the DT!

Stamp Ink Paper‘s challenge this week is to case the design team! Pretty exciting!

CYCI 120 – sketch

It’s a deceptively simple sketch challenge at Can You Case It this week: All of the entries are wonderful takes on what may seem a simple sketch, but can be quite difficult to pull together. Here was my attempt at it (haha!): This week I was determined to use up pieces I had already set…

CYCI 115 – red, yellow, black

It’s a colour challenge at Can You Case It this week: I had a birthday card to make, and this is what happened: I used the Hero Arts origami animals stamp set again.The flowers are just punched out. The bird and sentiment are (sloppily) embossed. I used a Copic marker to colour the crane and…
