Polaroid from Heaven

The minute I saw the sketch for this week's challenge, I instantly started thinking of Polaroid pictures.  It's been awhile since I've had the please of shaking a picture as I waited for the image to form, but we've been having a bit of fun around here lately with new models of instant cameras that print your picture out as soon as it's taken.    Thinking about Polaroids and Christmas cards at the same time got me wondering what would have happened if the shepherds had a Polaroid camera that first Christmas night.  Here is the image I imagined.


The angel and the sentiment were heat embossed with Copper embossing powder to match the copper stars on the Designer Series Paper.  The swirls in the sky were stamped using Seaside Spray and Purple Posy.  Purple Posy ink and refill has now been discontinued and is no longer available.  You can still order the paper and embellishments in that color, but the ink was just not able to meet quality standards.

Fall Foliage Waterfall Card

When I did the Facebook Live on Halloween making the waterfall card with the Boo to You stamp set,  I told you to keep an eye on this blog because a waterfall card featuring Gather Together would be coming.  Well, here it is.  I love the colors of fall and the colors in the Gather Together suite. 
To see a video of me putting together a waterfall card, see the post from November 1.  This one was much easier to remember how to put together.  That's what happens when I'm doing my creating before the sun goes down.  :)

Christmastime is Here!!!

Today is November 1st.  Halloween is over and although stores have been getting ready for Christmas already, it has been driving me a little bit crazy.  What about fall?  My daughter has been saying NO CHRISTMAS until after Halloween.  Well, Halloween is now over, so the stores are now full-blown Christmas.  That has always bothered me a bit since Thanksgiving is so important.  But, I've since decided that thanks is too important to be given one day or even one month.  Thanks should be happening every day all year.  That means, it is perfectly fine to start focusing on Christmas

Christmastime is Here suite is available starting today.






Today's card was made using the Christmastime is Here Suite.  I used the sketch from PP465 and the colors from Global Design Project 213:  Old Olive, Lovely Lipstick, and Smoky Slate.  I used some DSP for Old Olive and stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick as well as a rose that was then cut out and attached with dimensionals.  Since this suite has gold accents, I decided to add a rose heat embossed with gold embossing powder on basic black paper as the focal point of the card.

Stampin' Up! Helps with Halloween

Halloween is approaching and you would like to give it a personal homemade touch.  What do you do?  Stampin' Up! to the rescue.  Stitched Stars dies did an excellent and quick job making a homemade wand out of craft foam.  Look at these cute fairy godparents.


I would like to say our house was fun for trick or treaters--at least we gave it a good effort.  With a Steampunk Dalek guarding the front door and these cute paper pumpkin treat boxes, I had a good time anyway.  I have no idea how many trick or treaters we had, but all 20 paper pumpkin treat boxes were gone, plus most of our extra candy.   Bone appetit everyone.  All my treat boxes used the same sentiment.  I didn't think the new neighbors should be sending home boxes that said "Toxic Treats."


My final Stampin' Up! contribution to my Halloween was this fun waterfall card featuring the Boo to You Stamp Set.  I ended up trying to put this together far too late in the day for me.  Please excuse my fuzzy brain and forgetfulness.  I'll try to remember to only do Facebook LIVEs earlier in the day while my brain is still functioning.  I hope you enjoy this card anyway and like the watercolor pencil coloring and google eyes I added after the video.

I Finally Got to Create in My New Office--This is for sure a Season of Thanks

Today is a day definitely worthy of a card for the Season of Thanks stamp.  Today was the first day I was able to create in my new house in my new office/craft room.  It was the first day creating in almost a month.  I can personally testify to the positive effects of creating and the negative impact on your stress level when you're not.  My stress level was about to hit the roof.  I'm so thankful I now have a sanctuary I can spend time in and let those creative juices flow.  

Another thankful moment of the day--my heat tool and embossing powder is now found.  I already have a card designed and ready to heat emboss and then blog, so make sure you come back to check it out.



 I know most people think the "Season of Thanks" starts this week and runs through November.  I think the "Season of Thanks" runs year round.  There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for.  Today it is an office ready to be used for creating, caramel apple dip, dogs rolling around in the snow, using Stampin' Up! tools to help finish Halloween costumes, and cookbooks on the shelf to name a few.  What are you thankful for today?
