Merry Monday #257

Merry Monday has a tall order for this week's challenge.  Add a tag.  That's easy.  I do tags all the time.  But you also need to include texture, bling and die cuts.  I think I came up with the perfect solution.
Tag and die cut: MFT tag die to make an ornament shaker.  Check
Texture:  Pine tree embossing folder.  Check
Bling: Stars and sequins in the shaker, plus silver ribbon and heat embossed tag holder, and the glitter paper on the ornament.  Check.
Got it all!

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

Th Heart Desires #16 and The Cat's Pajamas #339

It sure doesn't seem like Fall with the record high temperatures we've had lately but Fall has descended on the cardmaking world big time.  Case in point - this mood board from The Heart Desires.


And my card inspired by the upper left photo.

A little plaid blanket, grapevine wreath and pumpkin decorate the kraft panel embossed with woodgrain.  The sentiment is embossed in copper.

The Cat's Pajamas is a new challenge for me and they want a Fall or Holiday cards so my card will pay a visit there.
Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I don't often participate in the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop but since I now have a couple of images that I can use for it, I have a card to enter.


I paper pieced the cup from Altenew and stamped in some coffee (that I don't drink).  The postage stamp die was cut from a snippet that I thought matched one of the colors in the cup and  placed that on some Ripe Avocado that I ran through my fabric embossing folder.  I'd love for you to join me in a cuppa anything you like to drink. ;)

The Flower Challenge #12

The Flower Challenge has a tic tac toe board to use for inspiration this month and I found it very easy to make a card using either the up and down center or top row across.

I had heat embossed in gold the flowers from Altenew and they'd been sitting around waiting for a card and a color.  I watercolored them with Abandoned Coral and Mowed Lawn DI.  For the sentiment I cut the word die from Popystamps in gold and layered it on two layers of Berry Sorbet.

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.
