Reindeer Emma arrives early!

I know it's a little early to be posting Christmas cards but look at Emma!
How could I resist?

I decorate my house in Pink, White and Blue for Christmas but 
wanted to use the more traditional colors for this card.  
I added a red crystal behind the lamp so it would look like a 
red light bulb.  Can you see it?

I embossed the snow flakes with white embossing powder.
I added stickles to the holly for added blingage and 
used my Martha Stewart punch to add the golden branches.
Hopefully I have encouraged you to get into the
Christmas Spirit a little early this year!

You could even use Reindeer Emma for a Halloween card.
Here is the link to The Paper Nest Dolls site to purchase Emma:

Thanks for looking in!

Hey Good Looking!

Hey Good lookin!  What's cookin?  My 2nd Paper Nest Doll Design Team Card!
I used the adorable Chef Angelina stamp.  I colored her up with my Copic Markers! 
 I made the flower and painted a metal spoon to match the spoon that Angelina is holding.

I did some sewing around some of the paper.  Added fish tail banners. 
Searched through my button stash and found the perfect buttons to match.
I enjoy layering the paper and die cuts to make it pop.

I am really happy with the way she turned out.  I love the shabby chic colors.
If you want to buy Chef Angelina, you can find her here:

Thank you for looking!

Exciting News! Paper Nest Dolls!

I have some exciting news to share!  Christine of Paper Nest Dolls has asked me to join
her Design Team!  I am over the top excited!  I love her stamps and she has a large selection to choose from.  So without further ado...
Here is my first card using French Girl Avery!  Isn't this stamp adorable?  I loved coloring her up!  She was just released yesterday.  She has socks but I added the fish net look to them.
I used some Carta Bella paper and mixed it Teresa Collins paper.  I added the Eiffel towel die cuts and a new LaLaLand wire die cut.  I hope you like her!
Go to if you want to own her!
Keep checking back because you don't want to miss out on all the new releases!

Kraftin Kimmie Hot Stuff Challenge

This is my take on Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Hot Stuff Challenge.  I think
a bride is beautiful and this Saturated Canary Stamp is definitely sexy!
I wanted to use a stamp that I already had.  I colored her up with my
growing supply of Copic Markers.  I used Teresa Collins paper.  It is an
old line of Posh and Timeless paper!  I added the angel that I had made
earlier with some Ice Resin and white paint.  I sprayed the angel with some
Lindy's Stamp gang to give it some sparkle and added a ring.
I hope you like her!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamp Card

This is a retired stamp but Kim says that she can bring it back if your interested.  It is called Goldilocks.  I think it is so cute and I like the sentiments that come with it. 
This is the card that I came up with.  I colored the stamped image with my Copic markers.  I did add eyelids and pupils to my Goldilocks girl.  I am taking a coloring class at Kit and Clowder.  It is an online class and I am loving it.  I also add some flowers and a bear that I picked up at the candy mercantile store.  It was a cupcake topper.  I hope that you like her.

Paper Nest Doll Card

I've had quite a bit of time in my craft room lately while I heal from a fractured ankle.  I'm definitely on the mend now.  The boot is off and I am able to walk instead of hobble.  I would do it all again just so I could have this much time to craft!  Lol!

Anyway, I created this card using Christine's Paper Nest Doll Pisces image!  She asked me to be her guest designer and I gladly accepted.  I started off by coloring the image with my Copic Markers and then cut her out.  I made the shell shape out of Sculpey Clay in white that I colored with some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in a teal color from her Industrial Chic set.  Added some beaded sprays and shells and a Happy Birthday Banner!  I hope you like her!

You can find many other stamps and digital images for instant download at her site!  Go check her out!  Tell her I sent ya!

You can't go wrong with Burlap and Vintage Christmas images!

We are camping at the beach and I have been sewing up a storm.
These are a few of my finished projects.
I used some Vintage images from
Cottage Rose Graphics on Etsy that I printed onto fabric.
I used the image "Pink Santa Vintage Shabby Christmas Large"
for this large pillow.  I added vintage laces and the pink doilies that
I had been making over the last few weeks.  I also did some beading around
doilies.  The beads are clear so you may not be able to see them.
 This image is called "Pink Noel French Santa Roses Large"
I kept this pillow a little more simple. Again using vintage laces.
I did put zippers in both pillows.  As soon as we gathered up the table and
pillows that we used to take these photos it started pouring! Perfect timing!
 I made this burlap stocking and added some vintage hand
crotched lace that I took off some old linen.
This image is called "Pink Christmas Ice Skates and Roses Large"
Please mention my name to Debbi from Cottage Rose Graphics!
Tell her I sent ya!
She has a tutorial on her blog on how to print onto fabric
Thanks for stopping by!
