Hedgehugs for a Happy Falliday

Hey all!  I have a few more cards to share for the Splitcoaststampers Falliday Fest!

This first one is definitely one of my favorites of all the ones I've made.  It's probably because it has that darling hedgehog on it!  It's from the MFT Happy Hedgehogs set.  I also used the MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX die.

The second one is a very simple patriotic thank you.  The die was a free with purchase from Taylored Expressions.

My third card uses a set called Sheepish from The Cat's Pajamas.  I also used an embossing folder called Cable Knit from Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by!  If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments.

More cards for Falliday Fest

I have more Falliday Fest cards to share for Splitcoaststampers!  

This first card was sooooo much fun to make!  I did a lot of distressing and splattering with this card. I used the Mega Leaves die from Taylored Expressions, and an older set called Vertical Greetings from MFT.  

 Here is a very simple monogrammed card I made using only dies from Taylored Expressions: Twiggy Branch and Tall & Skinny Alpha.

This final card is from a There She Goes stamp set.  Sadly, they are no longer in business, so I will just cherish the few sets I have from them.  

Thanks for stopping in!  If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments.  

Sending some Yeti hugs

 Good morning all!  I'm back with a few more cards for the Splitcoaststampers Falliday Fest challenges!  I hope you are getting a chance to play along!

My first card today is for Bev's 'smear, smudge, & shine' challenge.  I used a new set that I just had to have from MFT called Beast Friends.  That set is to die for, it's just so cute!

My second card is for Holly's 'Happy Holly Days' challenge.  I used the free with a $60 purchase die from MFT, 'Merry Christmas'.  

 My last card for this morning is for Sonja's 'Birthday Card with Wrinkles' challenge.  I used another MFT set called Llama Love along with the Scenic Safari Die.  

Thanks for stopping by!  If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments.

Fallidays over at Splitcoaststampers

Hey all!  I'm not sure if you know, but over at Splitcoaststampers they are celebrating the Fallidays!  Each day there are new challenges to get your creative juices flowing, and I've been having such a blast making cards.  We've been incredibly busy with volleyball and life, but I'm almost all caught up!  Here are the first few that I've made.

 This first one is for Lydia's challenge to 'Start Spreading the News'.  I used a few dies from Taylored Expressions:  City Skyline and Mini Leaves.  The set is called In & Out Birthday.  

 This second card is for Dina's 'Masquerade' challenge.  It uses a masking technique with those same Mini Leaves dies from Taylored Expressions.  The 'Sending Hugs' die is from MFT.  

My final card to show you tonight is for Lori's challenge of 'may your joy be as countless as the golden grain'.  I used the Count My Blessings die from PTI, and the stamp set is from a company that is no longer in business.  

I'll have more to show each day.  If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments!

Rainbow Experiments

Hey all!  I ordered a couple of things last week from MFT when they were having a small sale on 'outdoor' themed products, and the Rainbow Greeting stamp set along with the End of the Rainbow die were included in that order.  I've loved rainbows since I was a little girl. . .Lisa Frank anything was a way to my heart.  

I experimented with the rainbow die and Distress Inks and came up with a couple of slightly different cards.  This first one just uses blending on the rainbow as a whole.  I also thought it would be cute to include the dragon image from the MFT Magical Dragons set.  I'm obsessed with those dragons!

This next card uses the same blending, but with each ray on it's own.  I'm not sure which I like better, because they were both fun!

So, cat's out of the bag. . .I love color.  I'm sure I'll be making a ton more of these type of cards, because why not?!

Stamps:  MFT Magical Dragons, MFT Rainbow Greetings
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Distress Inks
Paper:  Canson 140lb watercolor paper, vellum
Accessories:  fine black embossing powder, MFT End of the Rainbow die, gold sequins
