Guest Designer at Atlantic Hearts Sketch

I saw Michelle from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge at the CTMH Convention this past summer, and she asked me if I would be a guest designer at Atlantic Hearts Sketch.  Well, I am honored that she would ask!  It's always a treat to work with their sketches!

As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to pull out the With You stamp set and Enchantment Fundamental papers to make a fall card.

I used Pomegranate, Saffron, and a little New England Ivy colors.  There's lots of clustering and plenty of fussy cutting on this card, but in the end, it is all worth it!  There is a typography piece of paper in the Enchantment Fundamentals, so I stamped by flowers, leaves, and banner on it just to give them a little more depth and texture beyond the sponging.  Shadow stamping the sentiment was a nice finishing touch.

Be sure to go over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and play along!

Flower Market Blog Hop

Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop!  We are so glad that you joined us for this special hop!  Tonight we are bringing artwork from the Flower Market Cricut Collection to you.  As always, this hop is a great big circle.  If you started elsewhere, that means you are joining me from Sue's blog.  You'll just keep following the big circle until you are back to where you started.

There is so much more to this Cricut collection than just flowers!  There are leaves, branches, vases, and themes to cover every season of the year.  Not to mention, there is an excellent font!  I am quickly finding this cartridge a go-to for pages, cards, and home decor.

I really like fall home decor.  The colors are so soothing, and it's such a joy to have these things around the house.  So I grabbed a 6" wood pallet and went to work creating!

Aren't these cuts fun when put on wood?  "Blessing" is a wood element I had in my stash, and the twine is from the Rustic Home Ribbon Pack.

To make things very easy for you, here's the design space file for this project:

I used Liquid Glass to adhere the pieces to wood, and 3-D and Thin Foam Tape to attach the sunflowers.  If you separate the twine in the Rustic Home ribbon pack,  you can get a nice messy bow!

Now it's time to move on to Lynn's lovely blog!  I know you will find great inspiration there!!

Jeepers Creepers!! Halloween is Around the Corner!!

You know as soon as the leaves start falling that kids are getting excited about Halloween.  I've brewed up a few cards to give those kiddos (big "kiddos," too!) using Jeepers Creeper and Monstrous Halloween.

The first two cards make use of the journaling cards in Jeepers Creepers.  If you click on the photo and open it up, you will see that I've added Liquid Glass to the monsters.  I thought that gave them a slimy look (for lack of a better word!).

Such adorable paper and stamps!  Don't let this one pass you by!!
