Catered Crop–Thank You Kindly Recipe Swap

Today I have a new card for the Catered Crop Thank You Kindly recipe swap.  With Thanksgiving right around the corner it is the perfect time to feel thankful or give some one a thank you card.

For my Thank You Kindly card, I pulled out some Papertrey stamps and dies to create this card.


2013-11-12 CC Thanks

I colored the gemstones and sequins with a copic marker so that they would coordinate with my project. 

As always, Linda has curate a Pinterest board full of inspiration for the swap.  Click on the photo below to go to her board on Pinterest.

Loads of fun and wonderful visuals at work in that focal grouping, but nothing distracting! Great design fabulously executed!

The composition of your card is marvelous, I think what I love best is the richness of the colors you've chosen. They work so well together and to me they make me think of the blue skies of autumn, the trees, and the lingering beauty of the leaves. I love that you have such texture in the layers and such a range of colors and patterns. They work wonderfully together. Thank you so much for coming back to play along with us at Opus Gluei, it is nice to see you being inspired and sharing your creations with us!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
